Best Liquid Liner EVEEEEEER!

This is an update on a review I did of the Stila Stay All Day Eyeliner back in December.
You can read the original post here: Stila Stay All Day Liner Review. 

Stila Stay All Day Eyeliner Review

I had wrote about how great it was after using the eyeliner for a few weeks, but I received a comment on my Instagram from a lady saying how it dries out and doesn't last long. I was really disappointed and was worried that I'd given my opinion a little prematurely as I hadn't had it long.

Beauty Products I Regret Buying 2015

Beauty and Makeup Regrets 2015

Thankfully I don't come across too many beauty & makeup products that I don't like. But there are a few items that I either hate (harsh I know!) or they've been knocking around for a while now and I've given up. So here we go...

Bronzed Beach Babe Makeup

Sorry I haven't been blogging consistently recently, I'm currently job hunting which is beyond dull and time consuming! I actually wrote this post a couple of weeks ago but on reflection the look I created took me aaaages to achieve and that isn't what I wanted for a fresh and effortless beach look. 

So here is take two:

Review of NARS God Created the Woman kit

NARS and God Created the Woman review

There's a specific reason I'm doing this review today; I purchased this kit before Christmas and had no intention of writing about it on my blog (as it was advertised as special limited edition) but then low and behold, I see two well known UK bloggers (separately) discussing it on YouTube this week. Now, I know that many people listen to makeup and lifestyle gurus (as do I!) and will quickly want to get their hands on this palette, but the YouTubers didn't actually do a review... so heres where I step in....

Currently Loving - March

My Top Picks : MARCH 2015 |



Kimono fringed new 2015

It's that time of year when all the shops are stocking pretty summer clothes. I've spotted loads of kimonos again this year but with the addition of tassels! I've seen some lovely and affordable knitted kimonos in New Look, and large print floral ones in River Island and Ted Baker.

Simply Stepping into Spring

Yesterday was the first day I actually felt like it was Spring; although it's still a bit chilly here in Cheshire, the sky was blue and the flowers in the garden have started to make an appearance. I definitely won't be getting my bikini out anytime too soon but it's nice to start wearing lighter shades and introducing pastel colours back in to my makeup routine.

Pop of Colour

For a colour-phobe like me, florescent eyeshadows and glitter eyeliners are not my cup of tea BUT I've recently been adding a touch a colour in to my daily makeup and I have to say, I'm really enjoying it!

Here's two of my looks from this week:

BLUE EYESHADOW with pink lips:

Yes it's true, I used a bright blue eyeshadow from the Seventeen Midnight Jewel Heist Palette. I simply followed the line of my black eyeliner and created a second flick, to add a comfortable pop of colour. 
I went all out and chose an electric pink lip, using the Rimmel Colour Rush Balm, in the shade I Want Candy.

Big Lips NO Injections - FULLIPS REVIEW

If you haven't seen or heard about Kylie Jenners lips recently then where have you been???!

The trend for big lips has truly blown up over the past few years, not only with lip injections on the rise but there has also been a huge surge in lip-liner products being made and sold, and countless blogger tutorials on this subject.

I'm personally not overly-concerned about the size of my lips - they aren't extremely thin but they aren't big either. I do over-line them every so often to create a slightly fuller effect when I'm wearing lipstick but I try my best to make this look natural. Sometimes I find it tricky and time consuming, so I was searching Google for alternative lip enhancers, when I came across FULLIPS.

Sexy Vs Sweet Valentine's Makeup

Valentines Day Makeup Looks

Whether you're having a romantic dinner with your loved one or an anti-valentines night out with the girls, either way I have two very different makeup looks for February 14th. They both have the exact same face and eye makeup but the different lip colours create two very different looks. 
All makeup used is listed at the bottom of this post :)

Makeup Brush Series - BASE

I don't know about you but I've found buying makeup brushes rather frustrating and some what confusing at times (not to mention the disappointments ...oh and expense!). I've wasted quite a bit of my well earned cash on this area over the years and I still maintain the fact that brushes aren't always essential, however, there are a few that have stood out from the crowd and these are the guys that have come up trumps when I'm applying my base makeup:
