#BEAUTY | Maybelline Blush Kit + Matte Maker





Finding the right blush can be quite a task, its the finishing touch to all makeup looks and should not be overlooked or forgotten. I feel it can do so much to a face. It gives the perfect flush of colour to a tan-less, needs-a-holiday badly, where-the-hell-is-summer face. I've realised though, its not that simple to pick a colour as there is so many blushes to pick from, singles to palettes or even creamy blushes.

I found my balance between a peachy orange and a subtle glow of pink, and from this palette I use the peachy tone with the tiniest of sprinkles of the pink. Purple is not for me personally but I can still use it as an eyeshadow.

I normally use my Nip + Fab blush palette as the tones are my cup of tea, and I believe it will be my go to whilst I try new ones in between.

The Maybelline blush kit also comes with a highlighter of which is pigmented in its own right, but can be a tad more glittery if you apply too much, that's me comparing it to the Mary Lou Manizer by texture.

As for the Matte Maker Mattifying powder, there isn't much moaning to do; it does what it says on the tin! It is great to set the areas you need to as well as for priming the eyes, easily can be popped into your handbag if you need to touch up your makeup throughout the night :)

Its a thumbs up from moi <3

#BEAUTY | Makeup Revolution Flawless 4 eyeshadows + NEW concealer

In my bid to do a full face of affordable and decent makeup, I went on a shopping trip to gather my items....and of course to grab that concealer the whole beauty world is talking about (or so it seems) so my trip was a disappointing one as the store I went to was near enough empty of makeup revolution :( so I bought this flawless 4 eyeshadow kit and concealer and intend to buy other bits like foundation, brow and lip products etc somewhere else. For the time being though I wanted to share my thoughts on this palette.
The colours are stunning, I'm actually so happy at how high street brands are really good quality for the money, I believe this palette was £6. I was drawn to the pinks and reds and of course the shimmer shades, both being really pigmented. There is a bit of fallout but mostly in the darker colours. There is a good range of mattes and shimmers and saying that also a good range of crease colours and lid colours.



The concealer which is being compared to tartes shape t…

#BEAUTY | Faux Mink Lashes for a Natural/Flattering Look

Lashes don't always have to be worn just for a dramatic effect, they can also be worn to accentuate your eye in a natural yet defining way. I don't wear falsies everyday ( if you do..how do you do it?!) but sometimes when my mood permits me to wear them on an average day I go for a natural/wispy lash or just an accent lash for the outer part of my eye. Buying lashes isn't as an easy job as you may think, you really have to consider the brand due to mink lashes! Luckily I can present to you a brand which have just brought out a line of faux mink lashes as well as their other natural lashes. From fluffy, natural and salon style see how you can get the look below! All lashes from Kiss
Faux Mink - LBD Lash
Give me all the Hollywood starlet glam! I cant help but feel like Audrey Hepburn or Elizabeth Taylor in these lashes. They are fluffy, wispy yet add a little drama. This lash can be re-used up to 10 times if you look after them im sure they will last even longer than that. T…

#BEAUTY| Hair colour restore at home w/ Scott Cornwall

As a box dye girl through and through I'm very welcoming to try new brands, colours and different coverage techniques that are offered.
I got a lovely bit of blogger mail from a brand called Scott Cornwall, it came in such a beautiful box and I was the worst blogger ever and didn't take photos of the box..and if I did I just simply cant find them! Because in all truth I got this package a while ago but I wanted to wait until any other recent dyes I had on my hair had grown out so I could see the results in full effect. Now I think of it there may be a photo of the box on my blog facebook page *hmm*.


As a brunette I got the chocolate brown colour but I also got a deep red colour if I was feeling like a change! I used the chocolate brown colour of course :)
The dye is not permanent but instead it is a colour restore for faded hair, or I like to think its a colour that can keep your hair looking glossy and coloured in the in-between times of when you have coloured your hair and…
