The weather is certainly having trouble making its mind up lately, am I right?

I have worn everything from Jumpers to bikinis this month and my wardrobe has been slightly confused with what temperature it should be! I have been loving all the spring fashion trends this year already so I thought I would show you some of my favourite outfits and beauty essentials so far.

For those of you who don’t know, I live in Wales and it is notoriously known for wet and windy weather (with last summer being an exception). I have clothes for every single weather event but I have never worn a woolly pullover and a swimsuit in the same week!

When we did have a 24 degree day, It was over Easter weekend and I was going to a family lunch. I wore this beautiful bright yellow tea dress from Primark and paired it with my white sliders.

It is such a stunning colour and was very lightweight and cool for sitting in the garden. I picked this dress up last year for £5 in the sale and I am so glad I did.

Dress: Primark – £5

Sliders: Primark – £6

Hair clips: Asda – £4

Hat: Dorothy Perkins – £16

These pretty hair clips are everywhere at the moment! They remind me of a classic  Chanel look that would look great on long and short hair. I picked mine up from George at Asda for £4 each and they are gorgeous! You can actually find my picture over on the George for Asda instagram page, they liked it that much they wanted to share it themselves!

This hat is from Dorothy Perkins, I bought it years ago and I just love the colour, it goes with everything and makes any outfit look so glamorous.

I have been loving super bright pigmented eye shadows lately. My sister very kindly bought me a few goodies from Colourpop, including this gorgeous super shock shadow. It is so pigmented and a little goes a long long way! It looks phenomenal in the sunlight and I look just like a giant piece of glorious glitter – I love it.

This was a super quick post to show you what I have been loving lately, but keep posted for something very exciting in the next few days from one of my favourite brands – You will love it!

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.

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?

Rose Gold Spring Tutorial

Uncategorized

img_1053-3

Hi Guys!

I am so ready for Spring. 

Whose with me?

I have been loving anything ROSE GOLD lately and jumped at the chance to create a make-up look for you guys. I think this colour combination is perfect for Spring, its so girly and pretty and looks ideal for any occasion.

For this look, I will be using my favourite palette by Makeup Revolution which includes 144 shades of HEAVEN!

If you guys have yet to get this little gem, then you can find HERE.

 SAM_0953

Here is the easy peasy video tutorial for you lovelies so you can learn step by step how to get this Rose Gold look.

Lets get Started….

And a photo montage because I love you guys….

SAM_0930

So to start, I used a shimmery pink champagne colour all across my lid using my finger to apply and pack on the colour. I find that applying my base with a brush doesn’t give the same effect as using my fingers, its more pigmented and the colour appears more rich.

SAM_0931

Next up I used a metallic soft pink shade in my crease and outer V, I used a fluffy brush to blend everything together and to create a seamless finish.

SAM_0935

Using the same fluffy brush, I applied this beautiful rich gold colour to the centre of my lid and blended it out towards the outer corner of my lid. I love this shade as it adds a lovely bit of warmth to the look.

SAM_0936

I then took a deeper darker pink shade and applied it over the colours in my crease and outer corner, this enhances and creates a depth to the look and a lovely smokey eye finish.

SAM_0937

Using a small flat brush, I took that same shade along my bottom lash line to increase that depth and add some shadow.

SAM_0939

As you can see, the colours blend perfectly together.

SAM_0941

By adding a highlight colour in the inner corner, it makes the eye appear brighter and wider and more awake. I used a shimmery cream shade.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Ofcourse I had to do a winged eyeliner. This look is super girly and feminine so enhancing those eyelashes is a MUST.

SAM_0943.JPG

Add a fave pair of lashes. Mine are by EyeCandy and are so beautiful, they are very flirty and have just enough length on the outer corner so it doesnt appear heavy.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Up next is mascara… a must. I use Maybellines Sensational mascara to create some drama compared with my subtle eyeshadow. This has to be one of the best mascaras I have ever had and I highly recommend this one!

SAM_0949.JPG

Noticed how my false lashes and real ones blend together effortlessly?

I LOVE IT!

SAM_0955.JPG

SAM_0956

I added a super pretty pinky nude lipstick to my lips. Its by Ted Baker and I literally wear to every day. I thought it complimented the eyeshadow colours perfectly. The formula is really creamy and doesn’t dry out my lips at all.

SAM_0957

I am in love with the finished result and cannot wait to wear it this Spring.

SAM_0952

Have you guys created a look for this Spring?

I would love to see so send me your links in the comments.

Sleek and smokey eye tutorial // Beautyandshe

Uncategorized

Happy Sunday everyone

It’s about time I did another makeup tutorial for you guys!

I feel as though it has been forever since I last did a makeup look for you lovelies!

So today, I thought I would share with you, one of my all time favourite classic looks.

Who doesn’t  love a smokey eye right? 

Especially when it’s got super sharp edges.

Your ready to get glam?…… Let’s start…

  

Firstly I began by placing two strips of tape on the edge of my lash line and lined it up with the bottom of my eyebrow. 

By doing this, it creates a super straight edge for my eyeshadow to follow.

  
Using this beautiful palette by I heart makeup, I started with the deep brown colour to use in my crease.

  
As you lovelies can see, the tape it stopping any fall out and gives me a straight edge to work with so my lids will look flawless…

  

  
Moving on to my Sleek palette, I applied the dark black shade over the brown in the corner of my lid and blended everything together. I love how   the colours already look together…

  
The moment of truth, removing the tape…

Flawless everytime guys!

So using that same black shade, I brought it down to my bottom lash line for a bit of definition

  
Moving on to the rest of the face, I applied my fave brow mascara, creating sharp edges to match eyes…

 
I then applied my Benefit foundation  and concealer under my eyes and to the centre of my nose to act as a highlight…

  
 
To finish the face,  I applied my Ted Baker blush to the applies of my cheeks to add a lovely rosy colour….

  
I couldn’t leave out the red lip right? My ultimate fave is by Ted Baker again, and it’s this beautiful bright red….

You ready for the finished look?

  

Voila! 

  

I absolutely love the contrast between the dark sultry eyes and the bright lip! 

  
Let me know what you dolls think I’m the comments below! And if you guys have a go, I would love to see!

Ps, please excuse the lovely sunburn…

Catch you guys later,

Love C

Makeup through the decades // 1980’s

Uncategorized

Happy Sunday everyone!

You know what time it is… 

Who isn’t in love with the eighties?

Disco pants, crop tops, big hair, bold colours, lycra….

One of my all time favourite films is 13 going on 30, where the fashion at the beginning was a big inspiration..

Fabuloso…

a84d5bcba94dd8fcfd1d1b50219526bd

Alot of makeup in the eighties was bright, bold and beautiful… but hey, Girls just want to have fun right?

 You just had to have colourful eyeshadow. That meant wearing blues, purples, and pink eyeshadows…

Bravo to those who wore all three colors on at once…

So lets get started….

IMG_0389

Fab-U-lous right?

So looking a bit like a peacock, this look is all about the eyes and cheeks…

I started of with my Bourjois Foundation and applied concealer under my eyes to create a flawless look..

IMG_0390

I then used a hot pink blush by MAC mixed with some hot pink eyeshadow by Wet n wild…

..alot of Hot Pink!

The blush was over emphasised so I brought the colour right across my cheek bones..

IMG_0387

Again, I chose a lip shade to go alongside my cheeks…

I lined my lips then applied a bright pink Revlon lipstick to match.

IMG_0386

As for the eyes, well….

I started off by priming my eyes with my Benefit primer then applied a shimmery white base.

I placed a bright blue shade in the corners and outer corners of my eyes, then applied a lighter aqua colour in the center of my lid. I blended these colours together then used a fluffy brush to apply a hot pink shade to my crease and inner corner.

IMG_0388

I lined my lower lash line with a metallic blue eye liner and applied my fave Mascara  – Benefit they’re real..

I finished the look by lightly filling in my brows, my eyeshadow and blush need to be the center of attention!

IMG_0385

As for the hair…

Backcomb baby!

The bigger the better!

And the look is complete! What do you all think of my electric eighties look? I had so much fun creating this for you guys.

I think I did Cindy Lauper proud…
