Berry Makeup Look ❤


Hi everyone hope you're all doing well. I've been meaning to do this post for a while after posting up a photograph of this look on my Instagram a few weeks ago! Now that winter is well and truly here (I can't believe its less than a month till Christmas now) I've been wearing much darker makeup looks and this is one I've been wearing a lot recently. Its perfect for christmas parties or those days when you just want to look and feel a bit more glamorous.  So heres how I created this look:

Face: For this look I wanted a foundation that would last all day so I went for MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NW20. I won't rave on about this product again as I'm aware I already have several times on my blog but this is my go to foundation! If you want to hear me ramble on about this foundation you can read my review here! Once my foundation was in place I used MAC Prep and Prime Highlighter in 'Light Boost' underneath my eyes in a triangle shape to brighten up this area. This is a relatively new product to me but I absolutely love the finish it creates. (You can read my first impression on this product here) It really does create that Kim-K highlighted look that so many of us lust after! To set my face makeup in place I used Rimmel Stay Matte powder in '01 Translucent'. 

Eyebrows: For my eyebrows I used Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow in 'Blonde' for the inner portion and 'Soft Brown' on the outer portion. This is another product that has quickly become a part of my daily makeup routine and I've also done a review which you can find here..

Eyes: To create this berry eye look I used the Urban Decay Naked palette, again one of my all time favourites and have been featured heavily on my blog. I applied 'Toasted' all across the lid and 'Hustle' into the corners to give me eyes some definition. I then applied my trusty Collection 2000 liquid eyeliner, topped off with Benefit They're Real mascara on my top and bottom lashes. To finish off the eyes I applied Rimmels Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl in 'Nude' which makes your eyes look wide and awake making them appear much larger.

Cheeks: For the cheeks I used MACs 'Harmony' blush underneath my cheekbones, around my temples and underneath my jaw line. 

Highlight: The highlighter I used in this look is the Sleek Contour Kit in 'Light'. This highlight is a gorgeous champagne colour with hints of gold in so it complimented the berry colours well. 

Lips: For this look I chose Rimmel's Kate Moss lipstick in 107. My last blog post was all about the Kate Moss lipstick range and you can find that post here!

I hope you enjoyed this makeup look. I would have filmed this look for you all but I did this look while my camera was being repaired. Thankfully its fixed and I'm trying to upload on my YouTube channel regularly for you all! I've got a few makeup looks planned and I'm also going to vlog when I go to the clothes show in Birmingham; I'm going on Sunday the 7th and I'm so excited!

Please feel free to send me a photograph if you recreate this look - I would love to see!



Kate Moss Lipsticks Review ❤


Left to Right 107, 113, 110 & 101!
Kate Moss lipsticks are my go-to lipstick choice and have even taken over from my beloved MAC lipsticks.  There are five lipsticks in this collection, the only one I'm missing is 111 'Kiss of Life' which is one that I've never been able to find in store. It looks to be a pillar box red so I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for that one!

The lipsticks are a matte finish which is my favourite finish. The formulation of these lipsticks are what I love the most as they are so creamy on the lips and not drying at all. The lasting power is also incredible for a drug store lipstick and thats why I wear one of these shades pretty much every day! They are available from Boots and Superdrug for £5.49.

Here are my favourite four shades..

This lipstick is definitely one of the most famous in the blogging/YouTube world. Every blogger and there dog wears it and I just love it! Its a gorgeous deep wine colour which is perfect for the Autumn/Winter months! I always reach for this lipstick when I want to wear a dark lip but fancy something different from the standard red shades. The lasting power of this lipstick is amazing, it lasts all day on my lips and wears off really nicely. I'd also say this lipstick is very similar to MACs 'Rebel' if you are looking for a cheaper alternative.

This is a gorgeous orange toned nude shade that is perfect for every day wear! I was reaching for this colour all the time in the summer as it went really well when I had my tan from Florida. Its really creamy on the lips even though it is a matte finish which I love. This shade may be slighter more difficult to wear if you have a pale skin tone as it could wash you out.

Again another shade that I reached for A LOT in the summer months. This shade is the perfect bright coral that brightens up any makeup look. I have to be honest and say this is the first coral shade of lipstick I've ever worn after buying MACs 'Costa Chic' and hating it a few years ago.

This is my go to every day lipstick and has been for at least two years now! (Maybe I should switch that up soon ha) Its a blue-toned baby pink and its definitely a 'your lips but better' shade on my lips. I'd highly recommend this shade if you like everyday baby pink shades.

Have you tried Kate Moss's range of lipsticks?


Zoella Beauty ❤

Firstly let me apologise for the very dull photographs - its official that its near enough impossible to find any decent lighting now winter has well and truly arrived. Anyway enough of me rambling about the awful weather; todays post is all about the Zoella beauty range and what I picked up! 

I remember first discovering Zoe's blog back in 2009 and I've been hooked ever since! Its absolutely crazy the success she has had recently and I couldn't think of a blogger/vlogger that deserves it more! If you don't know who I'm talking about (where have you been the last few years?) here is a link to Zoe's YouTube channel but I'm sure most people will know exactly who I'm talking about! 

Last week I popped into my local Superdrug and was surprised to be greeted with a stand of Zoe's product as soon as I walked in the door! To be honest I could have gone slightly mad and picked up every single thing but I restrained myself and walked away with these two products..

I'm a sucker for any kind of bath product as you'll see by the two products I chose out of the range. This bath soak smells absolutely delicious. Its a lovely fresh smelling scent that subtly girly at the same time. I haven't tried it out yet but I can't wait! 

The second product I picked up was the fizz bar! This product has been mentioned so many times on blogs and YouTube channels that I had to try it out. Also it looks like a chocolate bar so thats a big thumbs up from me.

One thing I really love about this range aside from the lovely smelling products is the packaging. It is 'Zoe' all over and you can tell a lot of time and effort has been put into personalising this brand by Zoe, herself!

Have you tried anything from her range?

ASOS Makeup Haul | Nars & The Balm ❤


Recently ASOS emailed me saying they were offering 20% off for students. Now I know I've just graduated from University but my lovely little NUS card doesn't expire until the 22nd of this month so I'm definitely making the most of it in its last few days. It's quite sad really, for the first time I'm not going to get student discount anymore! Time to get into the real world I guess..

So I after I received that email I ended up browsing through their makeup section to see what products took my fancy, as I decided to treat myself (like we all do sometimes) So here's what I chose..

I've been wanting to venture out my comfort zones with foundations lately and this has been on my wish list for a long time. I've read so many reviews on this foundation and its been mentioned a million times on YouTube so I finally cracked and ordered it. After looking online at the shade selection I decided to go for the shade 'Fiji'. Once it arrived I swatched it onto my hand and it looks the perfect colour. I'm a NW20 in MAC if any of you are similar to me and are looking for new foundations. I'm really excited to try this foundation out and I'll definitely get a first impression post up for you all soon! 

Oh my trusty Nars 'Laguna' bronzer! I remember first ordering this bronzer around three years ago when ASOS had 20% off for students and I decided to bite the bullet and try it out. NARs bronzing powders retail for £27.00 which is a crazy amount of money for a bronzer I know, but it is so worth it. To say this is my third 'Laguna' bronzer really does say something! This bronzer lasts me around a year I'd say and I use it pretty much every single day.  If you haven't tried this bronzer out before and want to treat yourself I can't recommend it enough.

Yes, I finally got my hands on some theBalm products! There has been so much hype about this brand over the past year that I wanted to see what all the fuss was about! If your a regular reader of my blog you'll know I'm a massive highlighter fan so I had to try this out. If you'd like me to do first impressions on these products please do let me know.

Alongside the highlighter I also ordered their bronzer/contouring powder 'Bahama Mama'. I have to say I was expecting it to be slightly larger as it did look absolutely tiny next to my Nars 'Laguna' bronzer but I'm excited to try this product out.

So that's everything I bought from ASOS! Quite sad really that its probably going to be one of my last orders as a student..(cries haha)

 Have you tried out any of these products?
