Happy Sunday my lovelies!

A bit of easy night time reading for you.. the More about me TAG!

Ive seen quite a few tags lately and thought I would create my own for those of you who are new to my blog. This is an honest little Tag that answers the questions you may not know about me and my life!

And ofcourse, I TAG all of my lovely followers to do this too, so I can learn a bit more about you guys! Don’t forget to TAG me so I can see them too!

You ready?

Lets get started..

Name?

Charlotte Grace Woodfield.

Age?

23.

Relationship Status?

I have been with my boyfriend Jamie for almost 8 years… I know.. CRAZY right? He is my best friend and I love him more than anything.

Occupation?

I am an Optical Assistant at Specsavers and run this beautiful blog in my spare time

Height?

5’4. And I love it!

Weight?

Well.. this is a place for sharing so i’m just going to be honest. I weigh 9st 2 and im very happy with my current weight! I’m a size 10 and have size 5 feet!

Were practically besties now…

Eye Colour?

I have Green eyes.

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 Food?

Anything with Garlic. Guilty pleasure. I LOVE Italian food, especially when its super fresh.

Phobia?

Im not scared of insects, spiders, heights anything like that. But I am terrified of CLOWNS! Whose with me?

Favourite song currently?

I have been loving Justin Biebers latest tunes. They are so addictive!

Any Piercings?

I have 5 piercings in total. 2 lobe piercings on each ear and one cartilage piercing at the top of my ear.

Any Pets? 

I have a beautiful 1 year old Lurcher (bit like a greyhound) called Honey. She is so cheeky and if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll get to see her for yourself!

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!

Mystical Mermaid Halloween Tutorial // BeautyandShe

Uncategorized

12030778_10154042225279179_941849848_nIMG_1053-1

Happy Sunday everyone!

I have a well deserved day off today so I thought it would be a good opportunity to catch up with you dolls!

I have been feeling very creative lately and I am SO looking forward to this autumn season.

So last week I shared with you my Halloween Horror Skull Tutorial, which I absolutely loved creating. This week is something a bit easier using some gorgeous colours and….

Glitter.

Yes. Glitter.

I’m pretty sure that every girl has wondered what it would be like to be a mermaid..

I know I have. I just love the beachy hair and bright and beautiful colours!

So this is my take on the Mystical Mermaid look.

For the full tutorial of how I created this magical look, check out the link above!11997159_10154030751589179_239807065_n

Who knew a pair of tights could create such a beautiful pattern right?

11999925_10154030751874179_758768752_n

In a lot of films, the mermaids you see usually have gorgeously glistening flawless skin, so to create this, I added some pink glitter to my cheekbones, brow bone and forehead.

12021979_10154030749884179_1516819988_n

To finish the look, add some eyelashes and give your hair those beachy waves!

This look is super easy to do and quick to create for a last minute idea!

Let me know what you guys think in the comments below!

NEW Summer Series: Everyday Glow // BeautyandShe

Uncategorized

IMG_1053

Im so excited to bring you dolls the second installment of my Summer Series!

When it comes to summer beauty, I think of bronzed skin with pops of bright colour!

This post will show you guys my everyday summer look that is so easy and follows on from my previous post!

IMG_2075

So take a gander at the products above,

and Lets get started….

IMG_2079

As this is continuing from my previous post, you can find my foundation and facial makeup here.

So for my everyday summer eye shadow, I love to add a splash of colour to the outer corner of my eyes.

Its super easy to change up the colours to match your OOTD.

IMG_2081

So to kick start this beautiful look, I used this gorgeous shimmery champagne colour all over my lid using a fluffy blending brush.

I adore this colour as it shines in the sunlight beautifully…

..(Twilight moment)

IMG_2083

Using the same fluffy brush, I applied a lovely ruby red shade to the outer corner of my eye and the crease.

Make sure that the colour is blended really well..

IMG_1085

I’m just addicted to smokey eyes…

I love the combination of the two colours and as you can see, I’ve made sure the colours compliment my OOTD.

IMG_2084

So lastly, for a real dash of summer,

I paired the look with this orange/pink lip colour by Maybelline.

It has such smooth application and leaves my lips feeling silky soft.

IMG_2087

As I said in my last post, comfort is a massive deal for me!

I don’t think anyone likes to be sweaty and uncomfortable, especially if you’re out shopping!

So my floral off the shoulder top is from Primark (ofcourse), my jeans are from Zara and my brown leather bag is from Crew Clothing.

IMG_2088

And that concludes my everyday summer glow look.

Can I just say that I am having so much fun creating these Summer inspired looks for you beauties!

Let me know what you guys think and I would love to know what your fave thing to do on a summer’s day is!

Speak to you all soon,

Love C

Plan with me // Beautyandshe

Uncategorized

entr0017-01

I have a slight confession to make…

My name is Charlotte, and I am a….

Planner Addict.

That’s right, I’m addicted to all things organised, pretty and crafty!

So i’ve seen a lot of youtubers doing videos about how they make their planners look BEAUTIFUL, and I thought that I would share with you beauts how I create my perfect planner pages.

Now  i’m no pro but like I said, I love anything organised and colourful.

So I got my gorgeous 2015/2016 planner from Paperchase for £8. It’s one of the week by week page spreads which I love, as I can see all my goings on at a single glance.

IMG_0993 IMG_0994

Isn’t that blue colour gorgeous? Just like the ocean….

I have obtained a whole load of washi tape, stickers and papers from various places, that I think will look fab throughout the year.

IMG_1007

So let me take you on a journey through journal heaven…

To begin, I found this super pretty black and white polka dot tape that I applied to the sides of the pages. I then used this beautiful summery floral tape layered on top.

IMG_1008

I then applied small vertical strips of the same tape to the pages in little flag shapes and paired it with this gold and white polka dot tape to match the ring binder.

I love how the warm colours compliment each other perfectly!

I began to fill in my planner with the written essentials of my day to day activities and reminders, then decided to add some extra bits and pieces.

On the right you can see a glasses sticker that I applied to remind me that I have work,

(Im an optical assistant if you didn’t know, hence the glasses!)

But it looks super cute right!!

IMG_1009

So the finished result!

Who doesn’t love stickers?

I think they are such a cute little add on to anything and just make me smile!

I also included a pink polka dot reminders card so I can quickly attach little notes and things to it.

Im so pleased with how my first page has turned out, and as I said, i’m still a novice at planner prep!

Take a look at my new planner video below for a sneak peek!

Let me know if you guys love to be organised just as much as I do.

I would love to know what you think and to see yours too!

Keep updated with the latest,

Graduation OOTD // Beautyandshe

Uncategorized

IMG_0988

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….

IMG_0940

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.

IMG_0945

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…

IMG_0988

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!

Speak to you dolls soon,

Makeup through the decades // 1910 -1920

Uncategorized

Picture this..

Strict up-dos, corsets, tailormade jackets and skirts.

The 1910’s were all about exotic fashion and high class appearances.

You’re probably wondering what i’m talking about..

I absolutely love exploring vintage fashion and makeup trends, it is amazing how much styles can change over a small period of time.

I decided to delve a little deeper this time and start a new series of blog posts inspired by previous makeup ideas over the past 100 years.

After doing some research into the many different styles, I wanted to begin with the 1910’s and 1920’s.

The both of these eras were all about femininity and style – My idea of heaven!

Time machine ready, let’s head back 115 years ago..

1910’s

1910s-makeup4

This look is all about flawless pale and porcelain skin. Having pale skin symbolised wealth and high class whereas women who were tanned were seen as lower class, often found to be working outside for a living.

The simple hairstyle shows elegance and the lightly coloured cheeks look so feminine.

IMG_0086

Thicker eyebrows were also desired (not in today’s society thank goodness) and a just bitten dash of red colour was added to the lips.

IMG_0084

I used a pale concealer and powder foundation to get the porcelain look and over-filled my brows using my maybelline eyebrow pencil. I applied a grey toned eyeshadow to my lids to add a little definition to the eyes. This look is all about looking naturally beautiful, innocent and elegant.

1920’s

1920s-Flapper-Makeup-Bebe-Daniels

Who doesn’t love dancing the Charleston?

I adore the 1920’s. The make-up was so sleek and the hair so perfect.

The 1920’s female figure is so iconic today and it has to be one of my favourite decades.

IMG_0098

As you can see, I have recreated the iconic look and I am in love with how it turned out. Using my Bourjois healthy mix foundation to created a flawless base, I then proceeded to create a defined contour using my MAC blush in Sunkissed on my cheekbones.

IMG_0100

I filled in my brows using my MUA brow gel and applied this gorgeous smokey shade called Blackheart from my Naked 3 palette across my upper lid. Using the same shade, I lined my lower lash line and applied my favourite mascara – Benefit’s They’re Real.

IMG_0101

Finally, to finish off this look, I lined my lips with a bright red lip liner and filled them in. Using my Ted Baker lipstick in a slight darker shade, I created some definition at the bottom of my lips creating a two toned look.

Who doesn’t love a red lip!?

IMG_0102

For my hair, I pinned the sides and created a ringlet using my fingers. I created a faux bob by tucking my hair underneath itself and again, pinning the rest back. I love how simple the hairstyle is compared with the glamorous makeup

It is an incredible look and I believe anyone could off pull this classic style.

I will be recreating the 1930’s and 1940’s tomorrow, continuing with my

Makeup through the decades series!

So which decade was your favourite? I think I know what mine is!

If you guys would love to see any specific styles, just let me know in the comments!

Product Review: Benefit’s Ultra plush lipgloss

Beauty, Fashion, Makeup

Good Afternoon my little lovelies,

I think you’ll find this post, BENEFI-cial…..(bad pun)

IMG_0406

So I decided to test out Benefit’s Ultra plush lip gloss in shade ‘A-Lister‘, which is a gorgeous bubblegum pink colour. It is however, very sheer which helps give the lips a naturally healthy look.

The gloss’ consistency is super smooth and glides onto the lips effortlessly and is NOT sticky at all!

It has the most gorgeous scent which lasts on your lips all day long.

So here are my Before and After looks for this perfect product…

Before

after

This glorious gloss is well worth the money… about £15 for a full size product…. and a little goes a long long way so this one will last a very long time!
