Must Have Monday.

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

Hello hello! Today I want to share with you these awesome products that I have not only been loving but I have also been using them every single day.

They are everything I need in an eyeliner and mascara. For a long time I’ve struggle with applying eyeliner. I started off by using pencil eyeliner from Rimmel, which I still use on my bottom lashes actually. I’ve used quite a few liquid eyeliners but I’ve always found them difficult to handle. When I received this one for Christmas I instantly feel in love with it. It’s so easy to use and it stays on all day. I tend to apply a thin line on my top lashes. One day I will learn how to put a proper cat flick!

As for the mascara, I like to have one that really draws attention to my lashes without being too much. I like them to be defined! I have quite long natural lashes so it’s only right to flaunt them lol! I feel that this mascara is just everything I need right now!

I’ve also featured both of these products in my recent post about my Spring Make-up Bag.

I hope that you enjoyed this post. Let me know what eye products you’ve been loving recently!

My Go To Spring Lipstick.

Processed with VSCO with hb2 presetProcessed with VSCO with hb2 preset

Happy Sunday! I hope you’ve all had a fantastic weekend and are feeling excited and ready for a new week. I certainly am!

I tend to go through stages of wearing lipstick and just sticking to lip balm. With the weather warming up it’s inspired and motivated me to experiment a bit more with my make-up.

Late last year I purchased this high shine lip crayon from Primark. When I moved house I rediscovered it. It’s a strong pigmented pink and I love how it looks on my lips. I have been reaching for this lipstick more and more over the past couple of weeks. It’s going to be one of my favourite lipsticks this spring!

What lipsticks have you been reaching for this Spring?

Night-Time Essentials.

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

Today I want to share with you a few of the products I’ve been loving to use before I go to bed. There is nothing better than getting into bed having done a full pampering session on yourself. A few weeks ago I picked up this Clean and Clear blackhead clearing daily scrub. I tend to get a fair few blackheads around my nose area and it makes me feel quite self-conscious. After using this for a few days I could already notice a difference. It’s also worth mentioning that this product is oil free. (hands up if you’re an oily t-zone person) I like to do this scrub in an evening time as i can let my skin breath overnight rather than putting makeup over the top straight away.

There is something so therapeutic about putting a face mask on, lying down on your bed and reading a good book. I know it’s recommended to leave the face mask on for between 10-15 minutes, but I would be lying if I didn’t tell you that it’s likely I leave it on for 30 minutes.

That enough about your face eh? Lets move on to body! I’ve been using (yes I know) another Soap and Glory product. What can I say! They have great products. My boyfriend’s mum bought me this as a Christmas gift and I have to tell you, it is one of the best body moisturisers that I’ve ever used. It smells amazing and it leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft.

I would love to know what products you use for your daily night-time routine.

My Spring Make-up Bag.

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

Who’s excited that it’s Friday? Do you have much planned for the weekend?

Today I want to share with you my Spring Make-up bag. These are products that I use on an every-day basis. I would say the products that I’m using now are the best for me skin and I’m very happy with the finished look after using them.

Some of the products you might recognise from one of my previous posts from last year. Yes, some are still the same as to be honest, I’m so in love with the product, I don’t want to change to something else right now.

✨I’m still using Urban Decay’s Naked 2 Basics Palette. I am so. in. love. with all of the shades in this palette and I have been from the moment I bought it. I’ve hit pan on about 4 of the shades and I will be definitely re-purchasing this again soon!

Collections Long Lasting Perfection concealer has been a long time love of mine. I don’t even know how many of these I have used up. It’s a product I make sure I never run out of!

✨Soap and Glory! Now, this is the first time that I’ve ever used their products and I can tell you now they have and will be products that I have in my makeup bag at all times. The eyeliner is just perfect for me. It’s not too think and it’s super easy to apply. It lasts all day which means I don’t have to top it up whilst I’m at work too. I’ve been on the hunt for a great high street mascara for a while now and finally, I’ve found it! Soap and Glory’s Think and Fast mascara is amazing! It allows me to apply the perfect amount of product to my lashes without looking too clumpy.

✨I’m quite lucky that I’m blessed with fairly good skin. My breakouts and very minimal and I’m able to manage my makeup and skincare routines quite well. I do however tend to get a little redness around my nose which I like to even out. I also get quite an oily t-zone which can cause difficulties in finding a good foundation that won’t enhance that. For a lot of time, I’ve avoided using foundations and just stuck the to concealer. That was until I found Loreal’s Infallible 24Hr Matte Foundation and I have to say! Where has this been all of my life? I use it everyday! It covers my redness and because it’s matte, its absolutely fine to apply on and around my t-zone.

✨I love a good lipstick and I’m forever changing brands but there is always one thing that is all of my lip products have, they are all pretty much the same shade of pink. I love pink! I think it goes perfect with my skin tone and it’s not too overpowering that its the only thing you focus on. At the minute I’m loving using Barry M’s Matte Me Up lip paint. It just glides on your lips and lasts all day. I recently featured it in one of my Monday Must Have posts. You can read that here.

That’s everything I’m pretty much carrying around in my make-up bag. I hope you enjoyed reading this post.

Let me know what make-up products you’re currently loving. If you have any product suggestions for me to try out, I would love to read about them too. 

Have a lovely weekend!

Must Have Monday.

Happy Monday to you all! How was your weekend?

Today I want to share a couple of things I’ve been loving recently. Spring has just arrived and I have cracked out the blue denim jacket. I picked this up from H&M a couple of years ago and I’m still very much in love with it! It’s slightly cropped so it’s perfect to pair it up with a daytime dress and a pair of sandals.

The second thing I want to share with you are these gorgeous earrings that I recently picked up from Peacocks. They are perfect for Spring and I cannot wait to start wearing these! These are still available, click here to buy.

I hope you have a fantastic Monday!

Hello Spring.

IMG_3811.JPG

The past few days have been amazingly sunny and I’ve been trying to take full advantage of it.

Nothing builds confidence more than a bright, sunny Spring day. I love the feeling of putting on a summery dress a pink lipstick.

✨ It makes me feel confident.

✨ It makes me feel positive.

✨ It makes me feel body-confident.

Recently I have been looking up spring inspiration on Pinterest. I want to change up my style this spring. I’ve been loving my natural curls but I want to change my hair colour a little, maybe some blonde highlights. I also want to learn how to plait my hair. (Any tips on how to do this would be greatly appreciated)

I also want to experiment more with my makeup. I have a greeny colour eyeliner so I’m going to be learning how to apply that, I think that it will look great with my eye colour.

Will you be changing up your style this Spring?

My Everyday Makeup Essentials.

I’ve been changing up my makeup routine a lot recently. I’ve been using new eyeshadows and techniques. I’ve really been enjoying applying my makeup!

So here’s what products I’ve been using near enough everyday.

I’m pretty lucky that I’ve got pretty good skin therefore I don’t usually have to apply a lot of foundation. Most days I find myself only applying Collections ‘lasting perfection concealer.‘ It really brightens my face. 🙂

On the days that I do wear foundation I have been using Rimmel’s ‘Wake Me Up’ foundation. I’m really happy with how this feels on my face, it doesn’t feel too heavy and it lasts a decent amount of time.

I’m currently using Zoella’s ‘no filter needed’ makeup bag.

For eyeliner I’m currently using Etude House’s ‘play 101’ eye pencil. I’m not sure that this is available in the UK, I bought it when I was away in South Korea.

On my eyebrows I’m currently using Too Cool for School’s Glam Rock eyeshadow. I find that this is a great shade for my brows.

On my lashes I’m currently using Collections ‘Supersize Fat Lash’ mascara. I couldn’t find a link to the one that I bought. It should be still available in Superdrug as I bought it not that long ago. To be honest, I’ve used better mascara’s, but this is working well for me at the moment! In the future I think that I will consider getting a mascara from Urban Decay.

On my lips I’ve been using the Barry M’s ‘Matte Me Up’ lipstick. I’m in love with this colour. I think that it goes great with my complexion. I find that it lasts all day even after meal times.

So that’s it! Those are all the products I’m currently using. I’m always on the lookout for new products to try. If you’ve got any suggestions, let me know. 🙂

Hope you’re all having a great Monday!

GRWM – England Spring Ed.

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?

My Lazy Morning Routine.

Good morning, how is your week going?

Today I wanted to share with you my typical lazy morning routine. Typically I get up between 8-9am. Recently, I’ve been having a coffee in the morning. I love the taste of coffee! I limit myself to just one coffee a day. More than one tends to make me feel a bit jittery and anxious.

I’m in love with this mug. I got it for Christmas. What more do you need in your life other than wifi, coffee and your bed? 😂

After some breakfast and coffee I make time to walk the puppy. I only take her out for a 15-20 minute walk but it’s refreshing. Sometimes if I’ve had a bad sleep I will wake up in a bad mood. I find that going for a short walk it considerably lifts my mood.

After walking the puppy I tend to head upstairs and start some yoga. I’ve been doing ten minutes a day and it’s been really great. I recently picked up the latest edition of Cosmopolitan magazine and I found this tone-up work out section in it. I’ve really enjoyed doing these work outs as well as the yoga.

Excuse my Christmas socks. I don’t care that it’s February. I love Christmas and I will wear them throughout the year. 😂

I’ve really been into wearing makeup recently. You can see my ‘Everyday Winter Makeup’ post here. Whilst I’m getting ready I really love to listen to my #Motivation playlist that I’ve created on Spotify.

Makeup has been making me feel so much more confident and happy with my appearance. 🙂

I find that having a relaxed morning definitely sets the tone for the rest of the day. I also find d that I’m so much more productive if I get up early, go for a walk and fit in a little exercise.

What is your lazy morning routine like? ❤
