Causal dark glam : brown lips

Hi guys welcome back , so today's post is going to be about this dark glam look. I've been really into brown lips lately I just feel like there is something so glamorous and mysterious about a dark lip. Now before we jump in i'm just going to mention that I don't really plan my blogs, I just sort of sit down in front of all of my make up and see what I feel like doing. For this particular blog I had no idea what I wanted to do with my eyes so I just had a play around with one of my palettes. So yeah that's all for my little ramble at the beginning and for how to achieve the look down below just keep reading!!

So the first thing I did was prime my entire face, including my eyelids and then I just applied some Vaseline onto my lips. Jumping into the eyeshadow part of the look I just used my Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette.
 So picking up the colour "Faint" which is just this nice brown colour that you are seeing, I just applied this colour onto the outer corners of my lid.
 For the remaining part of my eyelid I picked up the colour "Foxy" which is this bright shadow with some yellowish tones in it, just to make the darker shadow look more dramatic. And finally I just picked up a fluffy brush and blended the shadows just so there were no harsh lines.

For foundation I just used my L'Oreal true match in the colour ivory, and to blend it all out I used a damp beauty blender. For this look I decided to cream contour so I just my Iconic London cream contour kit, along with my B2 cream contour brush by Beau Belle, highlighter was obviously "Golden nights" by revolution.
After that I just filled in my brows and applied some mascara (just my usuals). I applied some false lashes just to give the look some extra drama, the lashes I used were the "7 lash" from MAC cosmetics. And finally for the brown lip I was going to use a liquid lip but instead I just used the Rimmel London exaggerate full colour lip liner in the colour 046 ultimate.
So that is it for this make up look I hope you enjoyed and you give it a try yourself, I don't believe I have anything else to say so until next time I will talk to you guys soon.

product showdown - L'Oreal skin perfection micellar water VS Garnier micellar water

Hi guys welcome back, so before we jump in I would just like to mention that I am now an affiliate for so for some ££ the website just use the codes down below :)

 So todays post is going to be a product showdown between two micellar waters that ive recently tried out, so im just going to be talking about my experience and how i feel about them .
So the first one I picked up was the L'Oreal skin perfection micellar cleansing water, I picked this up in my local supedrug because all i was hearing about was micellar water, I didn't really know much about it so I just picked up the first one I saw .  It is a good product, it did remove my make up and it did soften my skin, it basically does everything it says on the tin!! The only bad thing I could say about it is that it didn't last that long, I understand that the bottle isn't that big but I just felt like I didn't get enough.
The second product I picked up was the Garnier micellar water, after my L'Oreal one ran out I decided to go for another brand, just to see if there were any differences. Again this product does exactly what it says on the tin. The only differences I find in this product is that I feel like the Garnier water gives my face more of a deep clean, I have had to use a little extra moisturiser since using this product because of how much it deeply cleans my face, my skin has felt a little dryer but I have it totally under control. I also believe that this product lasts longer.
So that is it for todays post, I hope you all enjoyed. Please go out and try these products for yourselves and let me know what you think. I don't think I have anything else to say except happy Friday, have a great weekend, I love you guys and until next time i will talk to you guys soon.

Soft and romantic valentines day look plus two lips

Hi guys welcome back so today im going to be showing you this nice soft valentines day look, and also his doesn't have to be just for valentines day, you can wear this look on a night out or just during the day when you're out and about or whatever!! so lets jump in...

ok so first things first you all know I primed my face (duh) using the rimmel London lasting finish primer, then I used my rimmel London match perfection concealer just to cover any redness and breakouts I had. Then moving onto my foundation you know I used my absolute favourite and that is the L'Oreal true match in the colour ivory because I am currently not self tanning, so I just applied the foundation with a flat foundation brush and then to make sure everything was perfect I just blended it out more using a damp beauty blender.

For contouring Im using the "Chisel Cheeks"  contour kit by BarryM and to carve out the contour i just used this beautiful rose gold contouring brush from revolution, im not going to go into great detail about the contour right now because I think i'll just do a whole blog post on how I contour my face, I am self taught like i dont do make up lessons or anything so i am always trying to improve on my techniques for you guys!! And for highlighter i used the revolution cosmetics highlighter in the shade "Golden Lights"

Eyebrows were Maybelline new York browsaitin eye pencil & filling powder in the shade medium brown

Moving onto the eyeshadow i used my naked three palette from urban decay ( couldn't take my own pictures of the palate because I've had it since it first came out so as you can imagine its not looking that cute). So firstly going into the pallet i just picked up the colour "Limit" and i applied that all over my lid, then i applied the colour "Burnout" onto my lower lid, then im taking the colour "Nooner" and applying that onto the outer corners or my crease and then also putting a little under my eye (if you're a regular reader you should know that ill get on you about blending your eyeshadow, but if you are new to my page then im going to tell you right now, BLEND BLEND BLEND the eyeshadow because us people on this page don't like harsh lines!!!)

For eyeliner and mascara you can use anyone you want but for me personally i just used the rimmel London glam eyes liquid liner and the miss sporty studio lash mascara. And the lashes were exclusively for superdrug double volume lashes - edition 40

And finally moving onto the lips... the first lip you can go for is the bright pink look, this is a liquid lipstick from revolution, its called "salvation liquid lacquer) and the colour is called "what i believe"
The second look you can go for is the soft warm brown lip, the first thing i did was apply a mac lip liner in the colour "whirl" and then i used a mac lipstick in the colour "velvet teddy"
(Top tip on how to make your lip colour stay n for longer.. put a bit of toilet paper on top of your lips and apply press powder to the paper using a powder brush, it makes your  lips matte and makes the colour stay on for longer, i know it sounds crazy but just trust me on this!!!)

So that is it for this valentines day look i hope you guys enjoyed and if you don't have a date or a valentine who cares? We don't do our make up for boys anyway!! Do whatever you want on valentines day.. get drunk, go on a romantic date, burn all your ex's stuff... whatever you feel like!!
