Eyeliner magic ft. Ted Baker

Uncategorized

Ssssshhhh, Im going to let you all in on my little secret to the perfect winged eyeliner…..

Applying any kind of eyeliner to the eye can be tricky. However I have some extremely simple hints and tips to help make your eyes stand out from the crowd to get the perfect winged look.

1. Once the eyeliner is applied, set it with a similar colour shade to keep it in place.

2. Use a pencil eyeliner first as a guide for drawing the perfect flick.

3. Use the edges of a spoon or business card to create the perfect shape for your winged eyeliner look.

4. Always line your flick towards the end of your eyebrow.

5. Use small precise movements to prevent the eyelid from creasing and your eyeliner being uneven.

Ted Bakers felt liner is ideal for me, its felt tip is not flimsy, allowing for a more accurate application. It is highly pigmented and lasts all day without  budging.

Tea, Toast and Beauty

Beauty, Fashion, Makeup

So this morning I was feeling super refreshed after a good 8 hours sleep!

For me, tea and toast are a match made in heaven, so I got dressed, put on my slippers and headed to the kitchen ready for breakfast…

A hot cup of tea in the morning does wonders… AND just incase you all didn’t know… it provides you with some great benefits! Such as – 

  • It contains antioxidants
  • Has less caffeine than coffee
  • Increases your metabolism
  • Keeps you well hydrated

ahhhhh, I do love tea!

My breakfast was hot buttered toast accompanied by my cup of tea and a bit of light reading in the form of……

BOBBI BROWN’S MAKEUP MANUAL

I adore this book as it is so good for referring back to for hints and tips about all things beauty. It also contains a lot of information about looking after the body and healthy eating suggestions.

I have been loving looking at the different shades of eyeshadows that suit different coloured eyes … My eyes are green, so I a warmer colour palette such as beiges, browns, greens and purples.

Learning about the benefits of different foods is a great way to feel healthy and look healthy. For instance, eating foods like , fish, seeds and avocados provide essential fat nutrients vital for healthy hair!! – My hair will be shiny in no time!

I love to read this book on a daily basis to get daily inspiration and a sense of overall well-being. I guess this has been an ultra super tiny mini morning routine and what I like to do when I wake up from my slumber….

If you would like me to do a step by step morning routine, just let me know in the comments!

Off to put the kettle on now for my second, I mean third, I mean fou…. I mean fifth cup of tea…..

Keep tuned for this evening when I show you guys my winter fashion essentials...

Everyday makeup routine

Uncategorized

Good Afternoon my beauties!

I dont know about you, but I absolutely love watching makeup routines on youtube, they provide so much inspiration and are great to pick up hints and tips….

Also… sat down with some comfy slippers, hot tea, a warm blanket and a good read of a beauty blog or two is one of my favourite things to do.

I decided to show you the products I use for my daily makeup. Like most of us, I don’t have a great deal of time in the mornings so here are my go-to items that are quick, easy and simple for everyday use…

SAM_0038

Firstly, I use my Rimmel match perfection foundation in ‘Ivory‘ and blend this into my face using my Mac 187 brush, it creates the most flawless finish…

SAM_0037

Then, using my MakeupRevolution cover and conceal palette, I use the lightest shade to conceal my undereye circles and also to highlight my cheek and brow bones…

SAM_0034

I then apply my Mac blush in the shade ‘Sunkissed‘ to my cheekbones and the apples of my cheeks… this colour is a real rosy pink that looks gorgeous with any skin colour…

SAM_0035

Using my ‘Hoola’ bronzer by Benefit, I apply this to my cheekbones to create definition and a healthy looking glow – Great for the winter season…

SAM_0033

I adore my ‘Naked 3′ palette by Urban Decay. I use the shade ‘Strange‘ all over my lid to create a light base, this creates a fresh and healthy look to the face making you appear more awake…. I then apply the shade ‘Liar’ in my crease to add further definition and to put more emphasis on the eyes.

SAM_0040

This mascara is AMAZING! I have tried so many mascara over the years but this one by Max Factor has to be the best. It creates the most amazing curl without the need for eyelash curlers and does not, I repeat, does not flake under the eyes… it is perfect.

SAM_0036

Lastly, I fill in my brows with ELF’s brow kit, following the natural shape of my eyebrows. I use the shade dark as I like my brows to be the main focus of face.

 

And that is it! Easy, quick and simple for everyday use!

So im back off to look at all of your blog posts and ideas now with a nice cup of tea.

Keep your eyes peeled later for my Everyday Makeup routine video.
