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,

Shoe shopping haul.

Shoe shopping haul.

When I put my whole shopping haul together I realised it was quiet long. So I decided it would be best to put them into separate little categories. But I thought this would be better because then you all get more posts. So I thought I would start of with shoes, my favourite. Anyone who knows me would know that I own way to many shoes. Cupboards full. I actually think I’ve got some sort of problem. Whenever I go shopping I always have to look at the shoes. And it’s a good job because when I went shopping I found so many nice pairs that I had to get.

The first pair are these from Oasis. They were £40.IMG_7847 I would attach a link so you can go take a look but they don’t sell them anymore as I got them some time ago. Sorry about that. Anyway I love the little black strips across them. They are super comfy too! Which is always a bonus.  And I love the heel with the wood effect.

 

I think these ones are from oasis as well. And again I have checked their website but they don’t sell them anymore.IMG_7848 They were £35 ish. Technically they were only half the price though because me and my mum decided to share them. That’s the good thing about having a mum who has the same foot size as you! My favourite thing about these shoes has to be the colour, and the lace do up. I love it. If you did want to get a similar pair most shops I’ve been in have sold something similar.

 

When I went into new look I found these. For £4! IMG_7849What a bargain. However it wasn’t me who ended up getting them, it was my mum. But I still wanted to put them in because I thought they were really cute. The annoying thing is I find it really hard to wear this type of shoe because of the bit in between the toe. Anyone else get this problem? Surely it can’t just be me!

 

I always get a few flip flops from primark. I mean for 90p you would be silly not to!IMG_7845 And because I’m going on holiday at the end of next week I knew I needed one or two pairs. The only problem is they do fade out after a few weeks, but that’s all I need them for so I can’t really complain. I picked up these two, because I thought they were rather cute.

 

In primark I also picked up these little white strappy sandals. IMG_7846These are always useful things to own. I already own a brown pair, but the trouble with brown is that they don’t really go with everything. So to balance everything out I got a white pair. Because why not.  I’ve got a few outfits these are going to look really cute with, so I got them. And they were £6.

 

The last pair of shoes were these black ones with the back bit.IMG_7850 The only problem with them is that they have the in between the toe part, annoying.  But I’ll live. They are worth the pain and agony of wearing them though. I’ve got this little black dress which I know these are going to go well with.

 

I hope you all liked this post! Don’t forget to check back tomorrow for another.

Bye for now,

17 days!?

17 days!?

Just in case you were wondering, no I haven’t quit this blog. I know it’s been 17 days since my last post but I do have a reason. For one my laptop is still not fixed but hopefully that will be done soon then I can get back to writing properly. And I was writing some posts on my ipad but that’s stopped working now to. Just my luck. But that’s getting fixed at the minuet and should be done on the next few days. Thank god for my brothers laptop! But I’m going to have some pretty exciting travel blogs coming soon. I’m going to wales this weekend so I will do a blog all about that. And that will be done next Sunday or Saturday. I might do one each day but I haven’t decided yet so let me know what you would all like. And then the week after I’m going to Tenerife so there are going to be a lot of blogs about that. And there are 2 four hour plane rides involved so that’s going to be a lot of time to write blog posts!

So as I said there are some blogs coming up (as soon as I get my ipad back on Thursday), so don’t forget to check back for them. And I promise that on Friday my shopping haul, that I must have been promising for around 133334 years, is going to be posted. It has been scheduled!

Lots of love,

Milalor  XxXx
