It’s Monday, my favourite day of the week. A day for new beginnings. Maybe a new outfit, or two. Maybe a new makeup style, or hair do. Today I wanted to share kind of a different post with you. (I hope that’s okay) I mean, I’ve posted a couple of these types of posts in the past and I really enjoy writing them.
So today I present you with an England (because England is mostly cold) spring edition of GRWM. I hope you enjoy.
I love wearing dungarees. They are so summery and comfortable.
I tend to feel quite self conscious about my body. But I hope by posting these types of posts I can learn to accept my body for how it is.
This spring I’m wanting to try wearing different types of clothes. I’m wanting to try different makeup styles.
For this look I have used the Urban Decays Naked 2 Basic Palette. I think I bought this for about £24.
I have used the colour ‘frisk’ all over my eyelid.
‘Primal’ in the crease.
I then took the darkest colour ‘undone’ and used it as a eyeliner and just lined the top lash line.
I then used the colour ‘stark’ and placed that in the inner section of my eye. I blended all the colours together so there is a nice transition between the colours.
Finally I took the colour ‘skimp’ and used it to highlight my brow bone.
I’ve had this palette for about 2 months now. I am IN LOVE with it. This is the palette I use to do my everyday makeup. I look the looks that you can create with it.
As always, thank you for reading. ❤
What is your favourite outfit to wear in Spring?
With just a couple of days left until Valentines Day I thought that I would write about 5 little ways to tell someone you love them.
Why not express your feelings through your favourite songs? Make your valentine a mixtape of all the songs that remind you of them.
Make your valentine a origami heart. Maybe write a little love note inside too. 🙂
Jar of Wishes:
This is one of my favourite ideas. Little paper cranes in a glass jar. They look so cute. Just like the origami heart, you can write a special note inside.
Write your valentine a special letter.
Nothing is better than writing someone you love a letter telling them how you feel about them. You can tell them how much they mean to you and what you love about them.
What a better way to say good morning your valentine than leaving them a post-it for them to find while they get ready.
You can leave post-its anywhere. In the kitchen so they will find it as they make breakfast.
You can leave it in their car so they find it on the way to work.
You can leave it on their phone so they find it when they go to check their phone.
Will you be doing any of these for your valentine?

My Everyday Winter Makeup
I hope your week is going well so far. Today I thought that I would share with you my everyday winter makeup. Now, I’m not great at makeup (I am far from a professional) but over the past year I have been getting into trying out new products and makeup techniques. I have really been loving putting makeup on.
- Face Blur: Peripera
It does a great job at evening out your complexion. After applying this I find that my foundation goes on a lot smoother.
- Eye Primer: Collection
This is the first eye primer that I’ve bought. It seems to be okay so far.
- Foundation: Innisfree
I love foundations from Innisfree. I find that this gives a really even tone. It’s easy to apply and is long lasting.
- Eyeshadow: Urban Decay Naked 2
I’m in love with this palette. I usually use the colours ‘Tease’, ‘Bootycall’, ‘Busted’ and ‘Ydk’. Then for a little bit of eyeliner I use ‘Blackout’. I really like this combination of colours.
- Eyeshadow (Brown): Too Cool for School
I use this to just fill in my brows a little.
- Oh! My Eye Lash Volume Mascara: Etude House
I love love love this mascara. But I always find that it doesn’t last that long. It runs out fairly quickly. I do find that the mascara sticks to the lashes. It lasts all day and it can be a bit of a pain to remove.
- Pink Lip Pencil: Maybelline
This is a recent purchase. I’m loving it so far. It’s the first time I’ve actually used a lip liner.
- Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick: Maybelline
Again, this is a new purchase. I actually bought a matte lipstick a couple of weeks ago from Sleek but I really wasn’t keen on the colour of it. It was too dark for me. But this one from Maybelline, I love it so far. I’m really into using pink lipstick right now. It goes great with the lip liner too.
- White Brushes: Elf
These were a gift from my friend last year. I’m still using them. I love them. They are simple of use. To be honest I’m not sure what to look for in a good brush, but these seem to do the job.
- Pink Brush: Etude House
It does it’s job. I’m thinking I might replace this soon with a proper brow brush.
- Black Brush: Boots
I love this brush. I find it so easy to apply my eyeliner with.
That’s everything. I actually didn’t realise how many products I use until writing this post.
I love how makeup makes me feel. It makes me feel more confident, and more put together.
Thank you very much for reading.
Let me know in the comments what everyday winter makeup products you use. ❤
