#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

#TRAVEL | Liverpool

Its been a month since I visited Liverpool for the first time, its only right that I share my trip :) First of its a very friendly place, but I have come to learn that most places apart from London are....sorry London but its true.  I stayed for 2 nights and 3 days and I would say that it was enough time to explore the main parts of Liverpool and get a vibe for it. Im happy that I can now sing "ferry across the mersy" and constantly shout.. I've been there! I've been there! Its the little things that make it worth it aha Im a sucker for being near water and also in the city centre and the hotel I stayed which was called the tune hotel was the perfect walk away from the river as well as the city. A 5 min walk to the famous Cavern Club. Museums are a plenty and I visited them all! My fave being the museum of Liverpool, lots of interactive fun things to do and to learn. I would recommend taking a part of the day to go on the bus tours o

#FASHION | Classic style dresses

I only ever want to wear dresses that make me feel like Audrey Hepburn or Rita Hayworth tbh...so these 2 dresses from Femme Luxe really did just that! The black one is very much the LBD that I can see Audrey wearing - im getting all the Givenchy vibes! The red one is a timeless classic style that I think would wear well on all the old Hollywood starlets. The open neckline is somewhat glamourous and cheeky.
