Beauty


Well, Bonjour. How are we all? I wanted to do a little beauty post today, As I cannot stand doing any full length photographs of myself for fashion post ( due to being tiny, and lazy) So I've been pinning away lovely beautiful natural make-up looks,  nude/pink lips with eyeliner on the lid and waterline, I haven't used pencil eye-liner in a while (probably gave it a wide birth after the emo days... circa 2006) but having seen some lovely ladies such as Sophia Vergara and Kim Kardashian sport the look, it inspired me to try it out again, and although lovely, I find it a bit high maintenance, but this is probably because it's not waterproof.

OH! and i forgot to say in my last post, if you hadn't already noticed, I didn't cut my hair, I curled it into tight curls and put it in a loose bun letting it fall out and pulled it forward to make it look like I had short hair, it had quite a positive response on Intagram, but i'm not entirely sold on it yet, hence me just testing the water!
I also used my favourite Shimmer Highlighter.

 I also thought i'd show you a little view of my workspace, I've had a little move around and cleared all the clutter away, i feel like i can think now it's all clean, This is where i create all my drawings, collect inspiration and relax. When I was doing my make-up I noticed how inexpensive all of my products were, I do love designer, but they are usually saved for special events, etc.

Rimmel Exagerate lip liner in - Eastend snob.
It's a perfect nude with a light pink for warmth, applies beautifully matt, super long lasting and doesn't flake or leave awful lip liner marks. The lipstick wasn't available so applying with the liner will have to do for now. £3.99

Boots tinter lip salve
For those days when you want the comfort of a lipstick but you can't dry your lips out, It has a lovely soft pale pink coverage, and a perfect moisturiser. £1.00

Cream Puff Matt Lipstick
I've written about this before, the photograph makes it look quite orange but it applies quite lightly like a lipgloss, and quickly dries for a matt effect. I was so surprised at how good this is, the colour is slightly coral and applies with one stroke. £2.99

Collection 60 second Nail varnish - Candy Floss
It's essential for nail varnish to dry quickly with me, I am so impatient with things like this, as soon as i apply nail varnish i think of a hundred things that I MUST do, i'm being dramatic, but the quick drying varnishes are something I love, it's exactly like candy floss and not too pastel as there's a slight shine, but not too much. It's goes really well with the Eastend snob colour! £1.98

Make up Academy Shimmer highlight.
This is my favourite highlighter, I love the sparkle which adds an extra bit of glamour depending on how much you apply, I would encourage you to wear this with pink lip sticks as it can clash if you're going for an orange bronzed look. It's a must have in my make-up bag and i'm on the look out for their gold version which is hard to get hold of as they sell out so fast.  £3



As always, Thankyou for reading you can keep up to date with me here!
