Clothes Show Live 2014 ❤

Leave a Comment
















Earlier this week I went to the Clothes Show Live at the N.E.C in Birmingham. I remember going to the Clothes Show back in my first year of college, which was quite a few years ago and I so excited to go back and see it all again.

I'm sorry for the photo heavy post but I took some many photographs and I also managed to film a vlog for you all, so look out for that on my YouTube channel within the next day or so.

I had an amazing time at the Clothes Show from all the shopping to watching the fashion show. The fashion show was incredible! I'd highly recommend it if you've never been before! My next blog post is also going to be a haul as I picked up quite a bit (oops) There were so many bargains that were too good to miss!

I hope you're all well and enjoyed this little post!

Ardell Natural Lashes '120' Demi | Review ❤

3 comments

Today's post is all a little review on the Ardell Natural lashes! I've been using these lashes on myself and clients for the last two years now and they are my favourite and go-to lash brand. 

'My personal favourites are '120' because they are nice and full yet still look dramatic at the same time. They flare out on the outer corner which makes your eyes appear slightly larger. The 'Natural' collection are always very easy to apply as they have a very flexible and thin band. So you don't have to worry about a horrible black band being visible when you look down! They blend seamlessly into your own eyelashes. Before I apply false eyelashes I always apply a layer of mascara to the top and bottom eyelashes so they blend even better with the false eyelashes.

I normally purchase mine from Sally's but you can also buy them from Amazon online and they are only £3.59 which is crazy cheap and such good value.

I'd really recommend these lashes if your looking for a new brand of lashes or if you've never tried false lashes before.

Whats your favourite brand of lashes?

Nars Sheer Glow | First Impression Update #2 ❤

6 comments

Good morning everyone! So yesterdays post was all about my first impression of the Nars Sheer Glow foundation and you can read my thoughts here!

I wore this foundation from 9am to 11pm yesterday and I was so impressed with it at the end of the day. Like I mentioned in my previous post the foundation seemed very shiny when first applied and I was slightly concerned about how much it was transferring. I typically hate foundations that transfer as they just seem to get every where. Considering I apply my foundation with a brush every morning it amazes me how I seem to have foundation marks in the most random places - Anyone else get them on the inside of your car door?!

After the foundation had settled into my skin it didn't transfer at all so that eliminated that worry. One thing that really surprised me about this foundation is how natural it felt on my skin, by the end of the night I actually forgot that I had it on! The coverage lasted all day and didn't budge one bit. I have dry to normal skin and this foundation seems to work really well as I found it quite hydrating. I'd be interested to know how it works out for people with oily skin though!

Over all I'm really impressed with this foundation and will definitely be continuing to use it! 

Have you tried this foundation out? Whats your favourite foundation?

Nars Sheer Glow | First Impression #1 ❤

Leave a Comment




This morning I tried out the Nars Sheer Glow foundation for the very first time. I purchased this foundation a few weeks ago in an ASOS order I made. You can see what other products I ordered here.. (ASOS Makeup Haul | Nars & The Balm)

Before I applied the foundation I applied my Olay Beauty Fluid to make sure my skin was hydrated and ready for makeup. This has been my go to moisturiser since I can remember. as its a product my mum introduced to me at a young age!

The shade I chose in this foundation was 'Fiji' which is the perfect shade for my skin tone. (Im a NW20 in MAC if you're similar to me) It definitely has yellow undertones in this shade so bear that in mind when choosing. While my moisturiser was sinking in I made sure the foundation was shaken well as it seemed quite liquidly in the bottle.

The consistency of this foundation is similar to MAC Studio Fix Fluid. Its a liquid consistency but not runny at all. I applied it onto my skin with the Real Techniques Buffing brush as it applied the foundation nice and evenly. This foundation I'd say is medium to build-able coverage. I definitely prefer full coverage foundations and I managed to build it up to a coverage I was happy with.

Once I had applied a layer to my face I looked in the mirror and realised how shiny my skin was which did worry me a bit at first, however this went away after the foundation had settled. Another thing I noticed is that this foundation does transfer when first applied. To set the foundation into place I applied MAC Studio Fix Powder in NW20 and it still transferred slightly after this but not half as much.

After I had finished the rest of my makeup and the foundation had set it didn't transfer at all which is a big thumbs up from me. 

The packaging of this foundation feels very high end. It comes in a glass bottle with a velvet touch lid. The only thing its missing is a pump which means it can get slightly messy when applying.

So far I'm pretty impressed with this foundation so far. The finish is lovely and glowy without being over the top.  I'm hoping this foundation will last well through out the day considering its hefty price tag of £31.00! I may do another blog post this evening to update on how well this foundation lasted throughout the day etc..

I hope you all have a lovely day and enjoyed this first impression!

Love
