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!

Whats my workout Routine?

Whats my workout Routine?

Hello everyone,

Now i don’t think that I’ve ever done a workout routine on my blog before so this is my first one! Suddenly out of no where I’ve got really into health and fitness. Like i’ve got this app (my fitness pal) on my phone that tracks my calorie in count and excessive. I feel like because its the start of the new year its a perfect time to set your fitness goals. My’n are just to workout everyday of the week, whether its a full routine or a session of yoga. But i feel with online workout routines there based on the middle scale. By this i mean the intensity of the workout isn’t easy nor really hard. And i don’t know about you but sometimes i want a slightly easier routine and others i might want a challenging one (although i will admit that rarely happens)! I thought that i would include different options for my workout routine, easier ones, middle ish ones and harder ones. So i hope you all enjoy this post and don’t forget to check back for another. And if you just want the workout moves and the amount of times you need to do them i changed the text colour to blue just for if you don’t want to read the whole thing!

Okay so first up in my workout routine i like to do some squats. I do 100 squats stopping for 10 seconds after 10. I feel like squats are a great little warm up piece and really strengthen up your leg muscles. The good this about this routine is that if your looking for a slightly easier one, you can half the amount you do. So instead of 100 do 50. By doing 100 squats you will burn 43 calories. Personally squats are one of my favourite work out things. If you are looking for more of a intense workout, on every tenth squat you could hold it for 10 seconds. It all depends on how hard you want to work.

I then like to move on to sit ups. I feel like i have a love/hate relationship with sit ups. Sometimes i find them really fun and others i hate them. But anyway in my routine i do 50 sit ups. Again if you are looking for a slightly easier workout only do 25 sit ups, but if you want more of a intense workout do 75. Sit ups really work your middle abs and all around that area. If you want you could add a twist with each sit up to work your sides as well.

I feel like its important to stretch your neck before you get fully into your routine. You’ve already stretched your legs and abs so now its important to do the rest. If can’t be bothered to do my own warm up i usually google one, there are some really good ones out there. But sometimes i do like to do my own. And for my own i start by rolling my neck forward and backward and side to side. Its important you don’t take your head all the way round though because you could catch a nerve and that hurts a lot. Then i just simply roll my shoulders round and round changing the direction. Then just to give your feet and ankles a little warm up you can just make circle shapes (so rotate them) with them just to flex them. 

Now you can get right into your workout. I start by doing 10 mountain climbers. Once I’ve done 10, i have a 10 second rest. After you’ve done a exercise i feel like its really important to give your body a quick break just so it can catch up with you if that makes any sense. As you can probably tell I’m not a expert in anything to do with fitness i just go along with it. You need to repeat your 10 mountain climbers 5 times. So in the end you do 50 mountain climbers with a 50 second rest. Again if you want to make this more tense do 75 in total and rest after 20 mountain climbers. And if you want it to be a little easier, do 30 with a 10 second rest in between 10.

Another one of my favourite exercises are leg raisers. What you have to do is lay down on your back and rise your knees into a table top position. Then keeping one knee in that position, take the other and lift it up and down. Not using your hands of anything just the strength in your core and upper leg.  I like to do 20 on each leg, stopping for a 10 second rest after 10.  If you want to make this slightly harder do 20 on each leg, but don’t rest after 10, keep going until you’ve done 20. And if you want this exercise to be easier, do 20 on each leg still but rest after 5.  Like i said before, this is the great thing about home workouts you can adapt them to fit you. These target your lower abs, and if you stick with them you will defiantly see results.

Then i like to do some burppies. (I have no idea on how to spell that)! I do 5 at a time, then rest for 10 seconds and repeat that until you have done 2o burppies. If you want to make this exercise easier still do 5 at a time, then rest for 15 seconds then repeat this 2 more times. but if you want to make this more intense then do 10 at a time with a 10 second rest and do this 3 times. So you do a total of 30 rather than 20. 

Thats pretty much my whole routine, once i’ve finished i just roll my neck and stretch out my arms and legs just to relax a little. 

Let me know in the comments if you would like some workout posts on specific body areas and that type of stuff.  I kind of enjoyed writing this post as well. I also wanted to do a post on healthy meal ideas and things like that. 

Bye for now,
