It was my works Christmas party which was a pretty casual affair – I chose this oversized shirt, jeans and boots which I was comfortable in ALL night. My watch is from NEXT and makes a great statement accessory.

Comfy clothes are the best right? This cropped hoody is from Primark and I just knew I needed it as soon as I saw it. My slippers are from Dunelm and it literally feels like im walking on clouds – LOVE IT!

Rose Gold Heaven.

I bought these from Makeup Revolution as I love their lipsticks. When I saw they had a rose gold range, I was straight on their website – The shades go with everything and look flawless.

Possibly the best pyjamas I have ever owned. This nightie is from Primark and was £3! I love a bargain and The Snowman so this truly was a match made in heaven.

Were walking in the air….

I have seen Zoella create this Mariah Carey inspired look and HAD to recreate it myself. Believe it or not, I LOVED IT! I thought I was going to end up looking like a toilet brush but the curls were beautiful, by the end of the day they had dropped to a lovely loose curl.

So this is our house!

I used an editing website called fotr.com  to create the painting effect on my original photo. We will be using this as our Christmas cards next year!

All the glitter under the tree.

I adore wrapping presents – there is something therapeutic about it! We stuck to a gold and red theme this year for all of our gifts.

We are ready for the 25th.

Well…

I’m ENGAGED!

I recently went on holiday with my boyfriend (now fiancé) to Rhodes and it was totally unforgettable.

We had a beautiful sea view room with a balcony and terrace and we had just got back from dinner to find a bottle of champagne and fruit in the room – I was so surprised.

He took me to the balcony to have a drink and whilst my back was turned, he held my hand and got down on one knee with the ring! I was in complete shock, I couldn’t stop crying!

And ofcourse I said yes….

As you can probably imagine, I have been so busy catching up with work and family, I haven’t had much time to blog and vlog!

I am now back on track with everything so I will definitely be blogging a bit more regularly.

The NEW Makeup Revolution: Fortune Favours The Brave SWATCHES

Uncategorized

img_1053-3

Good evening beauties!

I managed to get my hands on the NEW Makeup Revolution Palette,

“Fortune Favours The Brave”

And it is unbelievable.

No wonder it has been sold out almost everywhere!

I went to my local Superdrug determined to find one of these beauties and luckily I did! There was only 3 palettes so I grabbed one as fast as I could and handed over the money…

I was in and out of the store in 5 minutes.

Mission complete.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Firstly, take a look at this packaging.

Opulent, Sophisticated and GOLDEN.

Ive always been a fan of Makeup Revolutions simplicity with their packaging. Its very classic and elegant whilst looking very high end and chic.

The palette was created in collaboration with The British Beauty Blogger, who wanted to create a product that is suitable for all age ranges and price budgets. If you havnt checked out the blog before, Check it out HERE.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Thirty glorious shades.

Ranging from mattes to shimmers, they are all so unique and beautiful.

Something for everyone.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

If you take a closer look at the brush, you’ll notice its not one of the sponge applicators but a double ended brush. One side is a simple flat brush, the other a fluffy blending brush.

I dont think I have ever seen a palette so incredibly stunning.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

So the first lot of swatches are taken in natural light and with one sweep of the finger. These are the swatches from the top row of the palette. As you can see, they are so highly pigmented and the colour pay of is phenomenal. In this light they ALL look very matte but just wait until you step into some light.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The second row of swatches appear to be a more warmer toned and as always, highly pigmented. Take a look at that rich black shade! This image is still taken in natural light.

SAM_1037

Bam! Look at those colours shine! These images are now taken in direct sunlight. They are super rich and glossy. One of my favourite shades is the pink shade on the right called “Pink Diamond” and it shines like a diamond too! I love the deep rich gold colour on the left called “Super Gold”, its so stunning, imagine how lovely this will look in Summer.

SAM_1035

Back to the top row, The shades are a but more cool toned, but that doesnt mean their not as glittery! Check out the stunning white shade called “Ice Cloud“, it would look great as an inner corner highlight. The third shade from the left is a real peach shade called “Peachy” funnily enough. This would look great as an everyday shade and in the crease.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

It has to be said that I am completely in love with this palette and I cannot wait to create some beautiful looks for you guys.

As for the price, its only £9.99 which is so good for the quality and range in this palette. Plus, im not going to lie, doesnt it photograph well?

Do you want this palette? Get it whilst you can HERE.

Have you guys recently bought this palette? What do you think?

Let me know in the comments below!

Enjoy the rest of your evening lovelies, ive currently got a cold glass of white wine and some olives, so im super chilled reading all of YOUR blog posts so SEND ME YOUR LINKS!

How to get bigger looking LIPS (the easy way)

Uncategorized

img_1053-3

Have you ever wanted a fuller looking lip without going to extreme measures?

Me too!

That’s why I have found a fool proof way of getting that beautiful fuller pout – the EASY way.

So if you want to see how I get the KYLIE JENNER style lip, then just look no further…

Lets get started…

So I always start off with lining my lips, today I used a dark nude liner from my ultimate favourite store, Kiko Milano, then applied a lighter nude cream lip shade over the top.

 

Kylie Jenner Lips 2Kylie Jenner lips 3Kylie Jenner lips

The colour is super pretty and delicate. By lining the lips with a darker shade it adds a lot more depth and definition to the lip whilst the lighter shade brings the lips forward giving that 3d fuller effect.

The final step is investing in a good 3d lip plumping gloss. Mine is again from Kiko Milano and is absolutely unbelievable. I got matching nude/beige shade and the colour combination is beautiful.

Lip glossLip gloss.jpg 2Lip gloss3

When you apply the gloss, it does have a tingly feeling but the consistency is not sticky or heavy at all. Its very hydrating and gives the most incredible shine. After about 10 minutes of wear I really did feel like my lips were slightly more ‘plump‘! The shine creates a highlight that brings the lips forward creating the bigger lip look as I mentioned earlier.

Its super easy to create and more importantly super affordable. Below are all the links to the products used:

Lip Liner – £2.50

Cream Lipstick – £2.30

Lip Gloss – £6.90

That is it guys.

Have you guys got your own way of getting a fuller lip?

Favourite Blog?

Ohhh this is such a tough one. I can’t say just one, but I do like Sabrina Babo and her blog A Little Obsessed.

Meaning behind my URL?

When I created my blog just over a year ago, it was a bit of a tough decision. Did I want to include my name or not? I chose not. My blog is mainly beauty based so I knew I wanted to include that in its name.. I was thinking about ‘beautygirl.com’ but it sounded too much like a superhero so I opted for http://www.beautyandshe.com. – I think it just fits.

Favourite Colour?

Im a big lover of the colour blue. My bedroom decor is a duck egg blue with cream accents, I think they go together so well.

Favourite Book?

Have you ever read The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern? You need to! Its so addictive, I have never read a book where I have been able to imagine every single little detail so perfectly.

Favourite Film?

The Harry Potter films are so great. They are so magical and I get so excited when I watch them!

Favourite Makeup brand?

Saved the best question (and the most tough) until last. Makeup Revolution has always been a contender, Benefit is also incredible but my NEW love is Kiko Milano.

Phewf!

Done. 

I hope you guys enjoyed this post. Its a little different to what I usually do but it was GREAT. As I said earlier, I TAG all of you beauties reading this!

Hope to read with you soon!

The perfect winter’s evening.

So I have been wanting do this post for a while.

I have been gathering some of my favourite Blush and Highlight colours from Makeup Revolution to show you beauts. If you haven’t heard of Makeup Revolution, then you 100% need to check them out! I think it has to be my favourite brand. It is such good quality and the products are so affordable.

Check them out here!

So lets begin...

12395571_10154270030959179_1425650627_n

I am ABSOLUTELY in love with this Ultra Blush and Contour palette. Mine is in the shade Sugar and Spice. It has some super bright shades mixed with some beautiful mattes and highlights. I have also got some gorgeous individual highlight and blush shades to show you!

Heaven!

12367064_10154270054709179_267230524_n

Now look at these Heavenly shades.

As you can see, they range from pinks to a warm gold highlight. This is just one swatch, and the pigmentation is unbelievable.

They are so shimmery and look flawless on cheek and brow bones or ANYWHERE!

I particularly like the shade on the left, it has pink undertones and makes me feel like a fairy….

12381082_10154270055229179_2035558955_o

All of the colours shown are using just one swatch so again, super pigmented and I can assure you, these bad boys do not budge. The colour stays on all day.
