Top 5 Everyday Lipsticks

image1-16

Hey guys! So today I’m gonna tell you about my favourite everyday lipsticks. Lipsticks are my favourite makeup item ever to collect and to wear, and I am ashamed to admit that I have way too many. I’m joking, I’m not ashamed, but I do need to control my hoarding characteristics, I’m running out of space to store all of them! I might have to invest in yet another lipstick holder. I usually go for a darker nude/pink for an everyday look. I wear lipstick every single day, no matter what, so I always like to have a lot of options to choose from. But these are the ones I wear on a regular basis and that I always seem to reach for. So let’s get started…

My First Ever YouTube Video! Everyday Makeup Routine

Hey hey hey. So today is exciting because I’ve just tried to attempt to film and edit my everyday makeup routine. Does anyone else hate the sound of their own voice when they hear themselves recorded? I find it so cringe haha.

I’ve never filmed or edited a video before so it was pretty difficult trying to learn how to use iMovie and it took a bloody long time. Anyway, I’m kind of proud how it turned out, and I want to make many more videos. Obviously my editing will get better (hopefully) and I want to invest in some lights one day.

I’d love to know your thoughts and feedback on it, so let me know what you think.

GlamGlow Masks – Worth The Hype?

IMG_4223

Hey guys! How is everyone doing? Today I wanted to share my thoughts on these two GlamGlow masks – the SUPERMUD™ Clearing Treatment and the THIRSTYMUD™ Hydrating Treatment. I’m sure everyone has heard a lot of things about these masks as GlamGlow has been all over the internet over the past few years and these are probably some of the most famous masks on the market. They are super pricey so that’s why I want to share my opinion with you on them, so you can decide if it’s really worth spending the money on them if you’re thinking about purchasing one! So with all that said, let’s get on with the review 🙂

NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

Hey guys! Hope everyone is doing well today. Basically, I am a foundation junkie and I’ve been trying out the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation and I wanted to share my thoughts on it with you. I just wanna say that I am not that big of a fan of the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. Honestly, I don’t get the hype. Maybe it doesn’t work for me because of my skin type or for some other reason, but basically it just doesn’t work. It kind of just sits on top of my skin and emphasises all my blemishes and fine lines whilst also getting oily and shiny very quickly. I do have very oily, blemish prone skin sometimes with a few dry patches around the cheek and nose area (yes it’s a NIGHTMARE) so it’s difficult to find foundations that work for all of these problems. This is my opinion on this foundation, maybe it will or will not work for your skin type, everyone is different and has different preferences when it comes to foundation, I recommend reading other reviews before deciding to try it out! 🙂 Now for the review…

So today I was feeling so autumnal. This is my favourite time of year, everything is so pretty, Christmas is approaching, it’s starting to get cold so I have an excuse to stay in bed and I can drink lots of hot chocolates and toffee nut lattes :). This is what I decided to wear, this scarf is just my life right now aha.

What’s On My Face Today? #4

Hey guys! So today I had an exam. Of course, instead of doing last minute revision I decided to spend ages doing my makeup. I definitely have my priorities straight! Also the weather was so horrible in London today. Winter is definitely coming, and I’m not ready for it, although I can’t wait to wear all of my winter coats and drink loads of hot chocolates. Another plus is that the Starbucks Christmas drinks have come out, so I’m gonna be filling myself up on toffee nut lattes, yaaay. (Yes, I’m obsessed with hot drinks.) Anyway, here is how I did my makeup today, hope you enjoy. 🙂

Hey guys! I felt like experimenting with my makeup today and actually try adding a bit of colour to my eyes. I’m going to dinner later so that’s a valid excuse to do a more ‘dramatic’ look than usual. Also I was bored, so I started randomly applying stuff to my eyes and this is how it turned out. I kind of like it 🙂

Battle Of The Drugstore Eyeliners

image1-9

Hello again! So recently I’ve developed an obsession with eyeliner. I’ve been buying so many, and I find that the best place to go for eyeliner is the drugstore. They are good quality, way more affordable and there is so much to choose from. So basically I’ve hoarded a load of drugstore eyeliners and I’m gonna tell you about my faves. (yes I have a problem)

  1. L’oreal Color Riche Le Khol Eyeliner in 109 Azure Blue. A beautiful turquoise blue that is super creamy and opaque and kind of looks navy blue in some lights! (ÂŁ4.16)
