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!

Walking shoes?

Walking shoes?

Yesterday, my dad took me and my brother to go and get some ‘walking shoes’. I mean what’s the difference between a normal shoe and a walking shoe. I didn’t even know walking shoes existed until yesterday. Long story short, on Friday (This Friday) me and my family are going to Wales to walk up mount Snowdon. Mount Snowdon. A mountain. I can barley get up the stairs without feeling out of breath let alone a mountain. I am seriously the most unfit person on this planet. And yet I’m expected to walk up a mountain. Someone please tell me they’ve done it before and that its super easy (even if it isn’t really)! Because I’m seriously dreading it.

To make everything worse, I’m going to look like a muppet doing it. I’ve got to wear these shoes and a purple rain jacket. Although I managed to get out of wearing water proof trousers. Thank god! Guess that’s a good thing?! IMG_7851

 

 

I’m not very good at anything that requires you being fit and able. So I actually have no clue how I’m going to walk up a mountain. In ‘walking shoes.’ Isn’t any shoe a walking shoe. To be honest I thought you just climbed it in ankle boots and a pair of jeans. Apparently not?! What am I going to go?

I guess that little adventure is going to make a great blog post, of me probably doing really badly .Ha Ha ! I’m sure I’ll be fine (ish). Let me know in the comments if you’ve ever climbed a mountain or if you are going too and what one you are going to climb. I would love to know!

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,

More facts about me?

More facts about me?

I think this type of blog has to be my favourite. I mean don’t get me wrong i love everything else i write about, but there’s just something about a simple get to know me post. So incase you haven’t already guessed, thats what I’m going to do! Let me know in the comments some things about you!

  1. I hate fish. Absolutely hate it. It’s the whole texture, sliminess of it. UGHHH. The only type of fish related thing i eat is baby squid. And that i love! I think it has to be one of my favourite things.
  2. I can’t play any instruments. Like any at all. I’ve tried every instrument going and i’m a complete failure at it. I don’t get why i can’t do it.
  3. When i was 2 i was running around my house with my mum and i ran into the door frame. I then slip down that and it slit the top half of my head in half.  So as a result of that i know have a scar smack bang in the middle of my head.
  4. I hate the colour hot pink. Any other shade of pink is fine just not hot pink. I like can’t state how much i dislike it.
  5. I guess you can say that i’m the type of person that likes to say what they think. Sometimes thats a good thing and sometimes thats a bad thing. I guess technically looking at it’s its kind of good because i’m not scared of saying how i feel. But i don’t know.
  6. I don’t really take anything too seriously. Like something i do somethings i really don’t. Like when i;m with my friends i’m a completely different person than when i’m at school.
  7. I can’t stay awake. At sleepovers i’m the complete WORST. I’m always the first one to fall asleep and the last one to wake up.
  8. I hate spending money. I like to save up all my money just to put it back in the bank. However i’ve got to admit that i’m spending a little bit more now, which is unlike me.  My wardrobe thanks me for it but i’m sure my debit card doesn’t!
  9. One bad habit is that i can’t stop biting my nails. I have tried everything on this planet to try and stop me but nothing seems to work. So let me know in the comments any of your recommendations, and i’ll will 100% try it!
  10. Blogging is probably my one and only hobby. I feel like it’s the only thing i really enjoy doing in my spare time.

Hope you all liked this post! I’ve gone shopping today so hopefully if i pull out my card and spend a bit money so i can put up a little shopping haul in the next few days.

Places I’d like to visit

Places I’d like to visit

There are so many places that most people don’t know about. So many little villages and islands with tiny populations. These are the types of places i like to visit. The ones no one has hardly heard of. So i thought i would do a post telling you places i would like to visit, let me know in the comments if you’ve ever been to any of them!

IMG_7311Bahamas. I feel like this is a place everyone wants to visit. The tropical setting, beautiful sunsets, Caribbean atmosphere. It just sounds so peaceful. And all around it you can find the tiny villages, showing the culture. I would love to go there.

IMG_7312Cuba. Now i know that a lot of people have been here, and i’m actually going this year (i’m mega excited)! I like how you can go to Havana and rent out a old 1960s American style car to drive down the streets. Thats something not many people get the chance to do.

IMG_7313Maldives. I so want to go here! Like I cant even put it into words how much! The entire setting just amazes me. It just seems like such a relaxed island. I think it would be a great place to just relax!

 

Japan. IMG_7314Japan is good for so many reasons! The fashion,ladscapes and food are just a few of them. Not to mention their technology! I think it would just be a whole other way of living. I love the style with the kimonos. And all the bright colours.

IMG_7315Mauritius. The little island of the coast of Africa, submerged in the Indian Ocean. All the rainforests, lagoons and reefs. It just sounds so cool! Apparently it’s well known for it’s subs diving and that type of thing. Just imagine all of the things there would be to do.

 

Thanks for reading!

Pictures & Photography

Pictures & Photography

I love taking pictures. It’s just a great way to capture a moment. I also really like photography, taking pictures of waterfalls, mountains and flowers ect… So today i thought i would show you some of the pictures i have taken.

I have a cannon camera which i got for my birthday a few years ago. I love it, it goes everywhere with me. Especially holidays, thats the perfect place to take pictures! I remember last year we went to Mexico and on a trip there were so many good places to take pictures.

In my bedroom i have a empty wall, where theres literally nothing but white paint so i wanted to print out loads of pictures just to cover the wall. I think that will just make it look really pretty, plus its a little bit of DIY. (Which I’m pretty bad at).

Anyway let me know in the comments what you think of the pictures!
