Makeup for ‘Green’ eyes

Beauty, Fashion, Makeup

Hello Beautys,

If you don’t already know….. my eyes are a deep green with light brown flecks in the middle.

Green is one of my favourite colours and according to some, the colours of your eyes represent different things..

So for me…

“Green is always a breath of fresh air and rejuvenation. So obviously, people with green eyes are like a gust of strong and fresh winds. They always have a room of mystery and enigma around them and a look into someone’s green eyes can make you get lost in them within seconds. Intelligent and always curious, green eyed people are always the first to take interest in something new. They have an incredible zeal and zest for life and for living live to the fullest. They are passionate about many things. And of course, with an eye color so enchanting, they tend to be very attractive and beautiful as well. The only negative factor is that they get jealous very soon. But overall, the positives defeat the negative. Youthfulness oozes out of them and the compassion and vibrancy that they bring along wherever they go is contagious.”

Well thats perfect for me! If you want to see what your eyes say about you, click here!

I was feeling green today and wanted this to reflect in my makeup. As I wanted a casual look, I didnt go overboard with the pigmentation as I wanted the colour to be subtle to make my bright green eyes pop!

I applied a super light green eyeshadow all over the lid as a base, then added a deep dark green to the outer corner and began to work this toward the center of my lid. Using a clean fluffy brush, I blended this together then applied my favourite mascara and a winged eyeliner.

You can find all of the products using the links below!

Makeup review: Goddess of Love, triple baked highlighter..

Beauty, Fashion, Makeup, Uncategorized

Good morning beauty-ful people!

I wanted to share a product with you all, that has to be one of my all time favourites…

Iheartmakeups ‘goddess of love’ – triple baked highlighter.

2015/01/img_1130.jpg

Oh my goodness, this highlighter is incredible, it is so pigmented and creates so much definition and shine when applied to my cheekbones, brow bones and cupids bow!

I apply this highlighter with a small fluffy brush or my fingertips and its super easy to apply, leaving your skin looking radiant, healthy and glowing.

2015/01/img_1131.jpg

I have used liquid highlighters before, but I don’t feel as though they have to same effect and look as pressed powder ones. The liquid products seem to just vanish after a short amount of time, whereas the powder products stay on all day!

2015/01/img_1132.jpg

I’ve talked about this brand before, and I absolutely love their range! You can buy their products at Superdrug or any other beauty store! Plus, their products are super affordable!!

Keep your beauty-ful eyes peeled for more posts later,

Love C

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.

Top Notes: Strawberry, Violet Leaves

Heart Notes: Violet Petals, Jasmine Bouquet

Base Notes: Musk, Vanilla Infusion

IMG_0389
Oh my goodness… This scent is phenomenal. It is perfect for everyday wear as it contains fruity and woody undertones. The bottle is gorgeous and looks just like a ruby and the scent last all day. As mentioned, It is a great everyday scent but I would use it more for going out and events.

Fragrance Family

Floral, Fruity, woody

Small bottle usually about £14.99 (from any beauty store)

Madame Glamour – Suddenly (Lidl)

IMG_0390

This is the game changer. I heard so much about the perfume from Lidl, hearing that it was a dupe for Chanel… so I had to buy it… It is unbelievable. Im a lover of fruity perfumes and this one is ideal, it has citrus and floral notes just like Chanel but for a fraction of the price…. ready…..£3.99!!!

All of these perfumes are ideal for any time of the year, but I have been loving them this winter.

Keep posted for daily doses of beauty and dont forget to like Beautyandsh on facebook for updates!

The ‘Would you rather’ Tag.

Uncategorized

Good Afternoon Beauty-ful people!

I decided to do the ‘Would you rather Tag‘ for you all! Now instead of tagging individual bloggers, I would like to tag ALL of you beauty-ful people to do this too!

So …. Lets begin..

Questions

1.Would you rather go out with messy hair and nice make-up or Nice hair and no make-up?

Messy Hair and Nice Makeup. I would try and get away with the wind-swept look!

2.Would you rather shave your eyebrows or have your eyelashes fall out?

Oh my goodness! I think I would rather shave my eyebrows because I could just draw them on with my favourite brow products!!

3.Would you rather be forced to shop at only MAC or Sephora for the rest of your life?

MAC all day, everyday.

4.Would you rather wear lipgloss/lipliner look or 80’s perm?

Lipgloss/liner look definitely. I think if I had a perm, my head would be the size of an large exercise ball. 

5.Would you rather leave the house with an obvious foundation line or overdone blush?

eeeeeek! worst nightmare! I would choose an obvious foundation line as I could easily blend it into my neck with my fingers!!

6.Would you rather wear MC Hammer pants or biker shorts in public?

I would say MC hammer pants, they look extremely comfortable……

7.Would you rather have a bad orange-y spray tan or really weird tan lines that can’t be covered?

Weird tan lines that cant be covered… because I could at least try and cover them with another self tan!

8.Would you rather have a bad haircut or bad hair color?

Bad hair colour definitely. I love my hair and to have a bad cut would probably make me cry… 

9.Would you rather have youtube or twitter taken away forever?

Probably twitter because I dont really use it. Ive never gotten into the swing of it!

10. Would you rather give up using makeup brushes or mascara?

I would rather give up mascara! I prefer a flawless looking face!

So come on guys, I tag you all to do this… lets get it trending!

#wouldyourather
