What Ive Been Loving & Catch Up..

So the last couple of weeks i has been absent from blogging, as i have been doing so much other bits and pieces that i haven’t really even been on my laptop much so i have a ton of youtube and blogs to catch up on this week luckily I’m free most of the week so i can play catch up.

So what have i been up t0?

  • Firstly i decided to do an advanced make up course which took up a fair chunk of my time, and even though i had previously already done a make up artist course i done this one to better myself really so i completed it yesterday and passed with a merit which I’m proud of.
  • Ive had some health issues and been on/off different medications and had appointments ect which have sometimes left me in a negative head space. Ive contemplated doing some posts on some of these subjects but I’m not sure.. Let me know in the comments?
  • It was my pups 2nd anniversary, on January 24th it was 2 years ago i got him. Which means his nearly 3 years old. Its honestly flown by, so to give him a treat i took him to the massive park and we had a massive adventure, then we stopped at the pet shop for some birthday treats on the way home.
  • So my partner is a die hard football fan and coming up is our 5 year anniversary so we went to an away match in Huddersfield and had a date night going to a comedy gig.

What I’ve Been Loving;

The first thing i have to say I’ve been loving and I’m sure 90% of the rest of the world is with me on this one. Ed Sheeran – Shape Of You.

Im not really a tv person but i have started watching Suits & Haters Back Off and to my surprise I’m really enjoying both.

 

Hair Care;
I happened to just pick this shampoo/conditioner set up as an off chance and its turned out to be my ultimate hair care routine. Ive noticed such a difference in my hair, it leaves my hair feeling nourished and soft which is something I’ve never had.

The way i do it i wash my hair twice with the shampoo leaving it on for 2-4 minutes and massaging it fully into my scalp.
Then apply the conditioner using a wide tooth comb i comb through my hair i dont put the conditioner on my cult only the length of hair however as my roots get greasy really quick.

Products;
BIO Oil; Im a lover of face oil, i love adding it to my foundation or to cream make up products to make them more bendable.

Zoella’s Hand Cream; I got this for christmas and I’ve fallen in love with it. I use it multiple times a day on my hands and skin. I love the smell and how hydrating it is. Im so gutted that its only available for the winter time i would so use this all year round. I have managed it find it on amazon however – http://amzn.to/2kCbIk4

Lip Smackers; I love these not just because of the luscious flavours but because there so light but hydrating on the lips. – http://amzn.to/2k6lGua

Lush Snow Fairy; Im still using up my bulk supply that i purchased this is beautiful i love it need i explain any more!

Whats Coming Up;

So were nearly in February which is the month of love.. I have a wicked blogger tag idea that I’m looking forward to doing from 1st of February.
Ive also changed the way i do my base foundation and it really works so I’m excited to show you this.

So keep a look out for some exciting blog posts.

September Favourites

This Months Favourites;

IMG_1777.jpg

Sprite Lip Balm; I love this it smells and weirdly tastes just like sprite, it hydrates my lips and stops them from getting dry and chapped.

Seventeen Make Your Mark; This is my new #1 product for doing winged liner, the tip stays sharp and precise, unlike some other pens I’ve used before the tip starts to fluff after a few uses making it impossible to get my wings on fleek.

Instant Age Rewind Concealer; Oldie but goodie, I’ve found myself reaching for this a lot this month instead of my UD Naked Skin I feel that this covers my dark circles a lot better.

Becca Foundation; Ive had this a few months and at first i didn’t think it colour matched me right so i didn’t use it, then i thought i would give it another go and i have fallen in love with it. This foundation literally glides on, and blends out flawless. Its a luminous foundation so it gives me a nice glow and it lasts all day without oxidising.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Drops; My skin has been really dry around the outskirts and on my cheeks so i resorted back to using my vitamin e drops and there so hydrating its amazing.

Shimmer Brick Highlighter;

A couple of months ago i ordered off make up revolution and with every order over £20 they sent a mystery bag filled with make up goodies, which was really cool a lot of the items were ex stock or what not, in my mystery bag i got a shimmer brick in radiant.
Shimmer bricks have never really taken my fancy or appealed to me, but i thought i would give this ago and have ended up falling in love with it..

Screen Shot 2016-05-18 at 14.57.38

There are 5 lines of colour on this shimmer brick, I’m one of these who is all for using make up multi purposely, and have used eyeshadow as a blush and concealer as a eye primer and what not..
The first line is a white which when swatched has beautiful rose gold specks this is my favourite, i use the soley as a highlighter, its such a beautiful shade and is so brightening, i love a good bright highlight, i use this in all places i would highlight..
Then i love using the pink toned as eyeshadows, and i mix the bronzed shades in to use as a bronzer.
From what i understand shimmer bricks are meant to be used as a all in one but i find this makes it to dark so i love using the lines separate. Im nearly touching pan on the first line it is my utter go to highlighter currently i love the way it looks in the corner of the eye also;

This would be perfect for me to travel with as its such a multitasking item which is compact!

Starting off with makeup my top 5 of 2015.

makeup

Beauty Blender.
Mac Studio Fix Fluid.
Carli Bybel Palette.
Gerard Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick Serenity.
Mac Shaping Powder Emphasise.

These are all items i discovered in 2015 not all were brand new released in the year.
Now i have my beauty blender i cannot see how i lived without it, there is so many cheaper versions but nothing compares.
I have finally found a foundation that doesn’t hate my skin and provides a good medium build able coverage it is my go to foundation and its one i will continue to use.
The Carli Bybel palette was released late this year and i just find the eyeshadow colours so easy to work with and so bendable.
Mac emphasise is my holy grail under eye powder it brightens so well and doesn’t look cakey. I so recommend this.

My Top 5 beauty picks of 2015.

Lush Snow Fairy.
Marc Jacobs Dot.
Garnier Roll On Deodorant.
