The Eyeshadows That Will Get You Started

mac swiss chocolate sleek collectionsleek collection macHello my beautiful ladies!

So today I wanted to talk to you guys about eye shadow. I wear it all the time, even if I’m going for the natural look I always wear one of these three! So I’m going to start talking about the three that do it for me…

Sleek Face Form Contouring and Blush Palette £10.99 – You’ve probably seen me blog about this on many occasions but I really love both the shimmery colours just as a light base with lots of lashings of mascara. The good thing about the colour on the right is it you blend it with a Mac 217 into the crease you’ll find it gives you an automatic crease colour, amazing right?

Collection Little Mix All About The Eyes Palette £3.19 – I love this palette because it is so soft and buttery and the colours are really pigmented. They have some really nice natural colours and some darker ones that you can transition from a day to night look. It’s easily became one of my faves to use.

Mac Swiss Chocolate £10.00 – I’ve had this for a really long time, but I haven’t stopped loving it, since I brought it. You can use it as just a solo colour on the lids and smudged underneath for a casual look, or you can use it as a crease colour.

So they’re my favourite, which ones do you like using on an every day basis? I’d love to know 🙂 x


The Cheeky Cheek Trio You Must Try!

So I’m back today with a new post about summer ready blushes,  I really love using blush and bronzer to add a bit of shape to my face which can sometimes look a bit like a blank canvas with just foundation!

Firstly I love using bronzer and this particular time The Body Shop Honey Bronzer – £13.00 comes in handy! It’s perfect because its got some warm orange tones which just gives you a really nice bronzed look. I have the darkest shade but as you can see from the swatch its not to dark. The great thing is that they have 5 shades so going from fair to dark. I love using mine with the Real Techniques Multi Task Brush which is just what I use for any blush or bronzer.

There’s no doubt about it, but the Sleek Blush in Flamingo – £4.49 is one of those blushes you can wear at any time be it summer or winter! It’s one of those blushes that just instantly brightens up a often dull looking face. It’s really pigmented and that’s one of the reasons why I know its going to be a long lasting blush. It’s also easily accessible and is one of my favourite blushes to use. So if you haven’t already, pick it up!

Finally a blush that I picked up a few months ago its the Natural Collection Sugar Plum Blush – £1.99 I initially brought this for the winter time because I thought it was quite mauvey. How wrong was I? its the prettiest natural pink blush which also just brightens up the face. It’s matte as are all the products I’ve mentioned but it adds the perfect glow somehow and looks gorgeous on any skin tone.

So will you be picking up any of these any time soon? Or better yet tell me what blushes you are saving up for the summer! I’d love to know… 🙂

What I’ve Been Loving This Month ..

It’s that time of the month again, where it’s monthly favourites! I’ve generally stuck to the same things and there’s a few things that I have mentioned once at least in my blog! So without further ado let’s go…

So a few weeks ago I got the Magnitone Lucid £49.99 when my skin was going through a very tough patch (lol third world problems) Anyways the Magnitone promised to reveal clearer, radiant skin within one week. They were right, within three day’s of using it I really noticed a radiance to my skin. I continued using it morning and night and have fallen head over heels with it. If you haven’t already, I would really go for something like this it’s amazing.

At the same time I got the Magnitone, I brought the Nip and Fab Dragons Blood Cleansing Pads £4.96 , it has hyaluronic acid in it and I think that’s what it all comes down too. It’s a really nice cleansing pad which if used once a day leaves your skin all plump and youthful. It’s actually on offer for less than half price in Superdrug so a really good deal!

Last year I brought my sister the Sleek Brow Kit in Dark £8.49, but it wasn’t to her liking! So seeing as I had ran out of a brow product aka my benefit gimme brow:(.  However I’ve been using the powder which has really been working to give me that fullness to my brow, I’m not so keen on the wax as it’s just too much!

When my foundation finished, I brought the Mac Studio Fix Fluid £21.50 which is a really nice medium coverage foundation giving a really flawless coverage. I got the shade NC35 in case anyone wanted to know. I really am enjoying using it, but I will report back once it’s been a few more weeks!

Finally, I have been loving the Mac Prep and Prime Highlighting Pen in Light Boost £18.50, I love highlighting my under eyes, forehead, chin, nose basically anywhere I can get my hands on!  The highlighter is really nice and less is more with this, otherwise it can be a bit hard to blend in. I would get the shade bright forecast as well, as it’s like a peach corrector.

So that’s about it really, what have you girls/guys been enjoying? I’d love to know….
