#BEAUTY | Effortless and Drastic glow for under £10!

Recently I got sent some amazing glow products from my faves over at essence. For me nothing beats glowy, rosy skin all year round but especially in the summer. There was one stand out product for me, but all in all you cant go too wrong with any of these products because they are so affordable!



These little chubb sticks really pack on the glow! Its so annoying that the one I want to really show up on camera doesn't! The swatch you can see is the HOLO WOW stick which is for those who are not afraid to have a very bright holographic highlight or equally as good for specific makeup looks e.g. drag makeup, futuristic makeup. If you want a real effortless  glow, you need the 3D DEWY LOOK, it kind of feels like an oil when you apply it but its not sticky or smudgy - it stays exactly where you place it and is amazing on top of cheekbones!



If you want to intensify your glow even more, then add a little bit of highlight above your brows, on your nose and cupids bow. As you can see from the swatches 
the pigment is really nice, its a little bit powdery but if you go in with a little bit and add it slowly then it doesn't end up too powdery. 




To go even further and create the futuristic look, these holographic blues and purples are it! The lip-gloss can also be a bit of fun to spice up and everyday outfit ;) I mean for most things to be under £5 its just a no brainer!

#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…
