Well hello there my beauties!

So yesterday was my twin sister’s graduation day! 

She has finally finished University and achieved and amzing 2:1 degree in BA History!

So of course I couldn’t not show you my OOTD and makeup for this amazing event.

Let me show you….

As it is summer, I wanted to go for something that would match this beautiful sunny weather.

My dress is from Primark and was an amazing £5…

BARGAIN.

I love the watercolour effect on the flowers and love the contrast in colour of the red and blue.

What I absolutely love about this dress is the back. It has an open back with a ladybird style cape effect which makes the dress look so unique.

I decided that because the dress is so vibrant, I wanted to pair it with some classy yet simple shoes and accessories.

My shoes are also from Primark and my matching clutch is actually my mums that she bought in M&S.

As for hair and makeup, again, I kept it simple by simply straightening my hair and stuck to natural and neutral makeup.

I lightly created a smokey eye and matched it with a natural rosy lip.

And as for my sister…

No word can describe how beautiful she looked…

Coral dress, white shoes, natural makeup – stunning.

Are you guys graduating soon? or have a special occasion to go to?

I would love to see!

Leave me a comment below or send me your pictures on twitter!

Lazy sunday OOTD

Fashion

Well hello everyone!

Today it is cold and windy here in Wales, so im having a relaxing day with my boyfriend. We may pop out for lunch or go for a winter walk or we may just stay in!

Either way, I wanted to share my OOTD with you all, what I usually wear on the weekends… Lets get started…

2015/01/img_4500.jpg

So my super soft stripy jumper is from Primark which I bought for £5!
I always wear a vest in the winter so this jumper is perfect as its not too thick and heavy.

My jeans are also from Primark and are highwaisted, I believe they were £15.
I love ripped jeans, they give a quirky edge to any outfit and they are SO comfortable.

My rings are from H&M and were £3.

And lastly, my ankle boots are my lovely sisters which she let me borrow!! The benefits of having a twin!

So that is todays OOTD my lovelies, I hope you have all enjoyed this little post.

Keep your eyes peeled for another makeup reviews later!

Love C

It as such a lovely floral scent with sweet undertones. This bottle is perfect in my handbag when I need a quick top up and it lasts for quite a while!

Fragrance Notes

Top Notes: Strawberry, Violet Leaves

Heart Notes: Violet Petals, Jasmine Bouquet

Base Notes: Musk, Vanilla Infusion
Small bottle is usually about £28.50 (from any beauty store)
Beyonce – Heat
IMG_0389
Oh my goodness… This scent is phenomenal. It is perfect for everyday wear as it contains fruity and woody undertones. The bottle is gorgeous and looks just like a ruby and the scent last all day. As mentioned, It is a great everyday scent but I would use it more for going out and events.

Fragrance Family

Floral, Fruity, woody

Small bottle usually about £14.99 (from any beauty store)

Madame Glamour – Suddenly (Lidl)

IMG_0390

This is the game changer. I heard so much about the perfume from Lidl, hearing that it was a dupe for Chanel… so I had to buy it… It is unbelievable. Im a lover of fruity perfumes and this one is ideal, it has citrus and floral notes just like Chanel but for a fraction of the price…. ready…..£3.99!!!

All of these perfumes are ideal for any time of the year, but I have been loving them this winter.

Keep posted for daily doses of beauty and dont forget to like Beautyandsh on facebook for updates!

The ‘Would you rather’ Tag.

Uncategorized

Good Afternoon Beauty-ful people!

I decided to do the ‘Would you rather Tag‘ for you all! Now instead of tagging individual bloggers, I would like to tag ALL of you beauty-ful people to do this too!

So …. Lets begin..

Questions

1.Would you rather go out with messy hair and nice make-up or Nice hair and no make-up?

Messy Hair and Nice Makeup. I would try and get away with the wind-swept look!

2.Would you rather shave your eyebrows or have your eyelashes fall out?

Oh my goodness! I think I would rather shave my eyebrows because I could just draw them on with my favourite brow products!!

3.Would you rather be forced to shop at only MAC or Sephora for the rest of your life?

MAC all day, everyday.

4.Would you rather wear lipgloss/lipliner look or 80’s perm?

Lipgloss/liner look definitely. I think if I had a perm, my head would be the size of an large exercise ball. 

5.Would you rather leave the house with an obvious foundation line or overdone blush?

eeeeeek! worst nightmare! I would choose an obvious foundation line as I could easily blend it into my neck with my fingers!!

6.Would you rather wear MC Hammer pants or biker shorts in public?

I would say MC hammer pants, they look extremely comfortable……

7.Would you rather have a bad orange-y spray tan or really weird tan lines that can’t be covered?

Weird tan lines that cant be covered… because I could at least try and cover them with another self tan!

8.Would you rather have a bad haircut or bad hair color?

Bad hair colour definitely. I love my hair and to have a bad cut would probably make me cry… 

9.Would you rather have youtube or twitter taken away forever?

Probably twitter because I dont really use it. Ive never gotten into the swing of it!

10. Would you rather give up using makeup brushes or mascara?

I would rather give up mascara! I prefer a flawless looking face!

So come on guys, I tag you all to do this… lets get it trending!

Mermaid shimmer

Uncategorized

So today I was experimenting with different colours in my Sleek I-Divine palette in shade ‘Vintage Romance’.

Mermaids are so majestic and beautiful so I decided to recreate this look on my gorgeous twin sister, Jess.

I began by priming her eyes with the ELF eyelid primer in shade ‘sheer’… This helps to make the eyeshadow colours pop and last all day!!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/ba1/80778203/files/2015/01/img_1105.jpg

So beginning with my first colour of ‘Lust in LA’, which is a gorgeous shimmery gold/brown, I applied this all over the lid using a a fluffy brush… I then applied the gorgeous red glittery shade to the centre of the eyelid and smoked it out towards the corner. Using the highly pigmented royal blue shade, I applied this to the corner and crease and blended all of the colours together with a fluffy brush.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/ba1/80778203/files/2015/01/img_1112.jpg

I applied Jess’ favourite mascara and filled in her brows to finish of the look.

This is a perfect going out look, pair it with a red lip for a Glamorous feel.

All we need now is a Mer-Man……
