Glam make up look

Glam make up look

This is my favourite type of post to write about, a make up look. I love to try out different make up looks with different colours or products.

So I decided to write up my ‘glam’ make up look. I like this look because I feel like the colours all match really well together and it all just blends through nicely.

So I hope you enjoy reading …

Before doing any make up, I like to prime my face. For this I first of all, use a moisturiser. It doesn’t matter what moisturiser you use really just whatever one you want. Once that’s all Applied I then use a primer. My favourite primer is the one from benefit. A primer is really good for preparing the skin and making make up last for longer. So I would 100% recommend!

The first thing I apply to my face is the rimmel London match perfection foundation in the shade 100 ivory. I really like this foundation because of its coverage. It gives a full coverage but it doesn’t feel like you’ve got any product on your face. It’s feels really light. Some foundations that give a full coverage can feel really Cakey and I hate that type of feeling. Especially because it’s on my face. I like to blend this out with a normal beauty blender, you can pretty much get these from any where.

Then I put on my concealer. I use the Rimmel wake me up concealer. I really like how this brightens up the skin and conceals redness but I feel like it doesn’t do much for dark circles. So if any of you have any recommendations for good concealers for dark circles, let me know ! 🙂 Oh, and I also like to blend this with a beauty blender.

I like to set all of that with my powder. The powder I use is the benefit hello flawless powder in the shade ivory. I don’t  use a lot, just a small bit to blend everything out. And for this I use one of my unicorn brushes. Which can I just say are like the best things to ever be invented. I actually got these for a Christmas present so I don’t know where there’re from exactly but I’m sure they won’t be that hard to find if you want some!

After that’s all done, I like to contour. For my contour I use the revolution London pallet of powdered contour. I much prefer a powdered contour to a creamy one. I feel like it’s much easier to blend. I put this on my cheek bones, forehead, chin and sides of my nose. And to apply this I use 2 different brushes. The small one and the slightly angled unicorn brush. I’ll put a picture of them below.

Then on my cheeks, on top of the coontour, I put a little bit of bronzer on just to give a bit more definition. I like to use the Rimmel London one in Shade 022 sun bronze. And to apply this I just use a basic puffy brush. 6795D944-FDC7-4595-9C43-4DDE70E9DB50

Then i like to do my brows. For my brows I use the benefit ka-brow kit in shade 03. And I don’t actually use the brush it comes with, instead I use a slightly thicker angled brush, which I’ll add into the picture below. I feel like the brush it comes with is quite slim and narrow so it’s hard to get the exact shape you want. I just find it much easier to do that with a slightly bigger brush. 57014407-AD76-4BED-AE64-1E8757D7F10C

One the brows are done, I like to do my eyes. This is my favourite part without a doubt! I start with eyeshadow. For this look I like use use a few different pallets. I start with the Mäc burgundy times nine pallet. In the crease of my eyelid I use the shade in the middle on the top row.               Once that’s blended out in the crease, I use the shade 1st on the bottom line just to add some definition. Basically I put this in the outer corner of my eye, still in the crease. By doing this it just makes your eyes look so much bigger.

Then on the actual eyelid, I use the pinky shimmer shade from the revolution pallet. I love how this blends with the other colours. It’s super glittery as well which is a bonus!

Then on the bottom lash line, I use the shade ‘lumbré’ from the urban decay heat pallet. To apply this I use a thin angled brush. And for the rest of the eyeshadow I just use the brush that comes with the heat pallet. A08E16CC-B09E-468A-B0C1-54E642B61761C810F4AD-724D-4B77-817F-5F29595B2F63

To highlight the inner corner of the eye I use the first shade in the Mac pallet. 29D453AE-777E-4DA2-AE30-720695DFF799

For eye liner I use rimmels exaggerate eyeliner in shade 001 100% black.

For eyelashes I really like to use false ones. And for this look I actually like to use these bambi lashes from primark. There only £2!! CE5ABDC7-3AA9-4FE9-BAA5-9EEADFB28A15

And for the bottom lashes I use this ted baker mascara. It came in a gift set for Christmas so I don’t know if you can buy it separately or not. If you know, let me know!!

Then for my highlight I use 2 different ones. On my Cupid’s bow, brown bone, chin and nose I use Kylies highlight ‘kylighter’ in the shade French vanilla. Then on my cheeks I use this revolution London one. Which is a rose Gold sort of colour. Personally, I really like it. And to apply this I use the brushes in the picture below…

lastly, I do my lipstick. For this specific look I use the Kylie lip kit in the shade Leo. I love this colour so much! Although I do find that it dries my lips out a bit and none of her other kits do that to me. So that’s a bit strange. But I still love the colour!

 

And that is my ‘Glam make up look’! I hope you all enjoyed this post!

Exciting news…

Exciting news…

I can’t believe how long it’s been since my last post. Like I actually can’t, it’s crazy!

I feel like the break I had from the blog was for the better. I felt like my posts were becoming a little bit boring and I just felt like they kept repeating themselves. So hopefully now after a break I can up my content and get back into it. Fingers crossed.

My goal is going to be to post at least twice a week. So let me know what types of blogs you’d like to see in the comments!!

Anyway, to the exciting news………..

Im going to hopefully be starting up my own little business in make up box’s! The idea is to set up a monthly subscription to a box of make up (which is different every month). When I’ve sorted all the details I’ll do a whole blog post explaining everything and that. But it’s in early stages at the Minuit.

So please let me know in the comments if that’s something you’d be interested in, and if you are interested, any products you’d like to see in it !!

Bye for now ,

Summer make up look

Summer make up look

So today I haven’t got a Cuba blog post, I wanted to do something different for a small change. I feel like the posts about my holiday can get a bit boring at times wich is why I wanted to do something a little different. And I really enjoy doing posts about make up so! I hope you all enjoy this post, and let me know in the comments what you though.

A few weeks ago I came up with this ‘summer make up look’ which I’m really liking at the Minuit so I wanted to share it with everyone. For me a summer look is all, about colour. Like a bright red or pink lip. And bright eye shadow. So that’s what this looks all about. I hope you enjoy.

Recently I’ve been avoiding wearing foundation. Mostly because the colour doesn’t match my skin because of my tan but also because I’m trying really hard to give my skin a little break from time to time. But instead of wearing foundation.IMG_8648 I just go for a little bit of concealer under my eyes and around my forehead and cheeks. The concealer I’m using at the Minuit is the Rimmel London wake me up concealer. And I blend this out with my old damp beauty blender, which I need to get a new one of! Desperately…

 

Then just to give a little more coverage I put a layer of hello flawless powder from benefit.IMG_8644 For me this is literally a life saver! It helps just give your skin the clear matte effect, which I really like. And I blend this out with this litttle brush, which I got from my number 7 beauty advent calendar last year.

 

Then for my eyebrows I’m still using my trusty goof proof benefit brow pencil. IMG_8659I swear that I go on about it all the time but I seriously love it so much. I start by brushing ,my brows into the shape I want, then fill them in, then brush the colour through. Hopefully that all made sense.

 

Then for a little bit of contour/bronzer. IMG_8645The reason I put it like that is because it is more of a bronzer but I use it as a contour. I mean it basically does the same thing. And I use a few different ones. Although my favourite would have to be the one out of the highlight and sculpt kit, which I got from Superdrug. As you can see though, it’s seen better days! Sorry about that.

 

Then I do my highlight. I start by using this Liquid one that I got from wish. IMG_8651Wish is this online shopping app which you download from the App Store. I’ll admit that when I ordered this I was a little bit doubtful that it would actually work, but honestly it’s amazing.

 

 

But just to give it a bit more definition I add a bit of my kiko highlight over the top.IMG_8647 Well it’s a eyeshadow really, but I find it makes a really good highlight. And to blend these I again use my broken beauty blender, and a fan brush. And as you can see, my highlight has also most run out. Sad face! * And i couldn’t find my highlighter to get a picture of! Sorry!

 

Now for the eyes, I love doing eye make up!IMG_8654 So for my coppery summer look i start by using the lightest colour in the pallet below. Then I just move up adding darker colours until it’s all blend through and creates a smokey eye look. I tend to but the dark brown copper colour under my eye, to give it more definition. Honestly this is my favourite look at the moment! Hands down!

For my eyeliner I use my usual Rimmel London one. IMG_8661This is by far the best. It’s so easy to use. I did get a mac eyeliner the other but I just couldn’t use it. It didn’t work for me.

 

I use two different mascaras. IMG_8667First I put on my number 7 volume one on, top and bottom lashes. Then my mac one over the top of that. And it creates amazing, fuller longer looking lashes. It makes your eyes pop out. Dramatic!

 

Lastly I put on a bit of lipstick. For this I use this number 7 one. IMG_8666It’s a nice mix between red and orange, so it’s very summery.  And so I feel like it just completes the look.

 

Okayyy, so that’s my current summer look. I hope you all liked this post and sorry it went up a bit later than usual! See you later,

Cuba day 3 and 4…

Cuba day 3 and 4…

Okay so sorry I didn’t post for the last few days I’ve been busy with lots of stuff. But I figured that I should probably put one up for today. So here is all about Cuba day 3 and 4. I mixed them together because not a huge amount happened. But I hope you enjoy…

So day 3 was mainly just a day with sitting around the pool, I think after all the drama from the other day everyone was warn out. I don’t know if I mentioned but we did end up moving rooms to another block closer to the beach. Although when you look out the window you just get a sight full of mud and broken trees. Nice! 😂

Then we just grabbed dinner from the buffet that night because honestly, it was less hassle than trying with the restaurants. I’ve got to admit though, the evening shows they put on were quite good, so I’ll give them that! 

Then the next day was full of a little more drama though. I woke up not feeling very well so I stayed in bed for a bit longer than I usually do. Then I decided I should probably get up and sit in the reception to get a drink. So that’s what I did. But while I was waiting to order everything just went black, it was really weird. Then my mum came over and was like, what’s wrong? But I couldn’t get the words out to answer her. Then my knees just gave way and I fell. So the next thing I know is that I’m slouched down in a chair with a bag of ice on my face. I didn’t really know what happened and I still can’t really remember. 

But that’s all that really happened over these days. I’ll get back to you tomorrow about some more stories though.

Cuba – day 2

Cuba – day 2

Okay so we landed in Cuba yesterday afternoon, and i must admit when we saw the airport I got a little bit worried because it looked so small and tiny. But it was alright. We got through quickly and the transport to the hotel didn’t take to long so that was lucky. I’ve got to admit though when we arrived in the hotel yesterday i was knackered, I think it was because of the 5 hour time difference, its actually really hard to get use too! But after a quick nap we went down into the buffet restaurant and grabbed some dinner.I’m not a huge fan of buffets because i much prefer a sit down meal when you all eat at the same time but hey ho! There are about 5 al’acart restaurants here though so thats good.

When we arrived we went into this meeting/conference type room where we were given welcome drinks and had a little show put on for us. Which was cool to watch. Then we went on the go to our rooms. The thing is me and my family have had a bit of bad luck with our rooms on holiday, every year there is always something wrong with the first room they give us. So cue holiday drama number 1…

We arrived in our rooms which i’ve got to admit at first glance were lovely! It was until you looked closer you could see what was wrong with it. First there were mosquitos everywhere! It was gross. There were stains all over the room and beds, and they gave a little camp bed to sleep on which isn’t even suitable for a 6 year old. Not great… And to top things of next door was a loud disco party that goes on every night until at least 2 am. Not really what you want when your jet lagged!

So the next day (today) we went down the reception to see our rep. And i really do feel sorry for that poor women because she must have been getting 23425 million complaints a day, there were queues of people who wanted to see her. But she was really helpful, she got us new rooms to go look at, which honestly weren’t the best but at least i had a double sofa bed to sleep on, so we took it! They were closer to the pool area as well so thats a bonus.

So thats what we were up to yesterday and this morning. But we have just spent the afternoon sitting in the sun by the pool and getting a coffee.

In the evening we went to a ‘special meal’ that our holiday company put on for us. Which lets just say was a complete and utter disaster. Long story short they ended up running out of food and refused to cook more. Not the best start to our holiday! We ended up eating in the buffet which was rammed with people.  And to top it all of when we went back to the room there was a disgusting smell coming from outside and we couldn’t figure out what it was. Thats when we aunty (who works for a water company), who’s room was next to ours told us that it was sewage! Ewww. But i’ll let you know what happens about that tomorrow.

*Im actually convinced that this is a literal holiday nightmare. I mean its already full of disaster and we are only on day 2!

But trust me it gets wayyyy worse….

It happened again…

It happened again…

I swear that every time i try and get back into writing something always gets in the way! I know that i promised daily blogs while i was away but we arrived in our resort and there was no wifi, obviously! But i still wrote the posts up in my phone so i’ll just publish them daily from now. So I’m sorry about that! I was really annoyed though because i got all excited about publishing travel blogs, but there was honestly no way i could post them. Unless I wanted to pay $2 every day for 1 hour of internet (which didn’t even work because i tried it once)! So below this little paragraph is a post about traveling to the airport and going on the plane and that sort of stuff. I hope you all enjoy!

Holiday Time…

Finally finally finally! Time for my holiday. If you know me you will know that i love going on holiday, literally love it. Every year in the summer we (by we i mean me and my family) go away on a two week holiday, this year we have gone to Cuba, which is super exciting. And this year i decided to write up a travel diaries sort of thing because its nice to look back on, and also it makes up some pretty cool posts!

So the only bad thing so far (now that I’m home i find it quiet funny how i thought the only bad thing was the flight because things got far far worse)! is the flight. Because i live in the Uk it takes about 10 hours. And I don’t love flying at the best of times so defiantly not a long haul one. But when we went to go board the plane, as a surprise my mum told us that she upgraded our seats, so that was super exciting. So we were at the front of plane and had loads of legroom!

We flew from Manchester and surprisingly I didn’t actually buy anything from the airport, unlike me! To be honest we didn’t really have much time because it took hours to get through security. But we did manage to find time to grab a little bit of breakfast which was yum!

I was looking through the shopping magazine on the plane but I couldn’t find anything i fancied buying, maybe on the way back i’ll find something I like!  We’ve just had our dinner, and i had this beef with a bit of pasta, its plane food so its not that yum but it will do. Ive watched quiet a few films, my favourite being crazy, stupid,love which i would recommend.

In tomorrows post i’ll do about arriving in the hotel and all of that stuff.

So bye for now,
