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.

Festive Maroon Smokey Eyes

Uncategorized

Happy New Year!

The festive season means plenty of parties so here is my festive look for the season.

I love anything maroon as it just reminds me of christmas. Its a bold colour that works well for all skin types and can be easily dressed up or down.

I began by priming my eyes with Urban Decay’s primer potion and began by applying the first shade from the Urban Decay’s Naked 3 palette,Strange‘, all over my lids. Using Makeup Revolutions ‘I heart chocolate’ palette, I used the shade ‘What a way to go’ which is a gorgeous maroon colour, in the corner of my eye and crease. I blended this out with a fluffy brush to really create the smokey effect. Using a smaller detail brush I applied the shade ‘Love Torn’, which is a red/brown colour, in my crease and outer V, I then used another fluffy brush to blend this all together.

Using Ted Baker’s gold eyeliner, I lined my bottom lashes to add some sparkle and pop to compliment the festive deep red colours.

I then used Ted Baker’s liquid eyeliner in Black to line my upper lash line into a winged look. I use small strokes to get the perfect and precise detail. Once finished, I curled my lashes and applied my favourite mascara, Max Factor’s max volume and high definition mascara, making sure to get right to the base of my lashes to lengthen them further.

Red smokey eye

Voila! The look is complete! It’s as simple as that…
