Lash Love 🖤

Hi lovelies,

Just a quick one, this week has been crazy! Wednesday I qualified as a Classic Lash Extension Technician! I’m so excited to be expanding my business😍

Here’s my first go at classic lash extensions, didn’t quite get finished due to complications with my model but we got a beautiful, natural finish to the lashes.

Do or have you had lash extensions?

Personally I never have but I always love the look of them🖤

Revolution Forever Flawless Constellation Palette🖤

Hi lovelies,

I’m so excited to be sharing this review with you! When I posted my pink & blue look previously I said I would do swatches, finally they’re here!!! Let me know if you like reading reviews as I’m hoping to do more and actually stay consistent with my weekly posts (going to be posting Monday, Wednesday & Fridays) 🙂

Can I just say how GORGEOUS is the packaging for this palette? it is a tin as well so super sturdy & travel friendly as it feels like the shadows are well protected but the palette is still light weight which we all love!

The inside defintiely reflects the packaging & I think the colour selections are divine 😍 This palette attracted me as it’s totally different to anything I own, I don’t own many bles and reds so this was a winner. I absolutely adore all of these & I’ll definitely be doing loads more looks soon!

Which colours would you love to see me use?

Can we just appreciate these swatches, they are double swatched but I have only gone in to them lightly! Only running the shadow twice before swatching!🙂

I also love that although this palette looks super crazy & wild. You can actually get a neautral look from it, the shades retrograde, asteroid, celestial, harp & universal. I used these shades to achieve this super wearable look….

I used retrograde & universal in the crease for definition, blended out with asteroid & applied celestial all over the lid, inner corners & brow bone as a highlight shade.

Here’s the pink & blue look I’ve previously done…

Basically, for £10 this baby is a freaking steal. Absolutely love Revolution products, I’m yet to find something I don’t like!

Have any of you lovelies tried this palette? if so, what do you think of it?

Life update 🖤

Hi lovelies,

I realised I haven’t actually shared anything about my course that I have been doing for the last few months! I am currently studying Makeup Artistry Level 3.

So far I have completed my henna, camouflage makeup & body art assessments! I’ll put picture of all below, let me know what you think 🙂 I’m definitely proud of what I have achieved so far!

Both of these designs I did as my assessment pieces for henna. I really love how it came out & through this course I have found something else I love doing, I am carrying on with henna & making it part of my beauty business! EXCITING! 😁

I created this dream catcher as I’ve always loved them as tattoos. I actually did this on my fiances foot, he really loved it! 🙂

My next assessment pieces were camouflage, we had to cover bruises, hyper & hypo pigmentation, scars & redness. I’m not going to put images as they aren’t that exciting but it was fun to learn this as a new skill, we also got a camouflage kit which will really help me for the future.

I have just finished my body art assessment pieces, the first we had to design a Mexican/sugar skull design. This was actually really fun! Here’s the design I came up with…

The second assessment piece was a fantasy body art, for this we could literally do anything as long as it included the face, neck and limb!

I chose to do Raven VS. Mystique, since I don’t really have much experience with body painting, well non at all! I was SUPER pleased with the finished result! (I had only practiced this one other time beforehand!)

HANDS UP XMEN FANS 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️

I’m absolutely loving every second of this course, it’s been so fun to learn lots of new skills, meet new people & finally be doing something I actually REALLY LOVE!!

Next month I’m also doing a lash extensions course as well so that’s super exciting too!

Have you started any new hobbies or classes?? I’d love to hear about it!

The inside defintiely reflects the packaging & I think the colour selections are divine 😍 This palette attracted me as it’s totally different to anything I own, I don’t own many bles and reds so this was a winner. I absolutely adore all of these & I’ll definitely be doing loads more looks soon!

Rediscovering my old favourites❤

Hi lovelies,

I had the idea for this post the other day when I found myself reaching for my old favourite products. I used to use these products ALL THE TIME back in secondary (high) school. **I have repurchased since, don’t worry!I’m not using gone off makeup**

I challenge you to do this & tag me in the post. I love seeing what products people are or have been loving

Here I am in all my tired mummy glory! Let’s see what magic these products can do…

I decided I wouldn’t prime, not a fixed part of my routine, sometimes I feel primer makes my makeup look worse. Anyone else feel the same?

I started off by applying Revlon Colourstay Foundation the shade buff all over my skin using the Real Techniques Buffing Brush – this is also an old fave, I’ve legit had the brush since I was in high school! they last so well. I absolutely loved how this covered, I actually have the oily/combination version, my skin until having my son was always really oily but now it’s more combination verging on dry. However, this foundation still performs amazing as they do have a dry skin formulation of this foundation. For high street foundation its amazing that they have such a great selection depending on your skin type and colour!

For concealer I used the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Extra Fair. This concealer does the job. It hides and imperfections!! I adore this. It’s also amazing for touch ups throughout the day even on top of powder.

To set it all in place I used a very beaten up looking Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Transparent to set the base. I always forget how much I love this powder!

Look at that coverage 😍 I love it. So simple yet beautiful! This is definitely more full coverage than I go on a normal day, but I love this when I’m going out anywhere. Especially when I know it’ll last.

THROWBACK much. Who else used to absolutely swear by the Sleek highlight palette? I know I did. Now I’m definitely obsessed again, LOOK AT THAT GLOW. So so pretty. I love that the coloured ones are just subtle & gives dimension to the cheek bones, not an obvious coloured highlight.

I usually use a mixture of all the powder highlights, look how stunning that looks. You can use it so it’s subtle or build it up to be a blinding highlight like I did 🙂

Hoola Bronzer by Benefit is a firm favourite, since using this year’s and years ago I haven’t stopped using it. I love Hoola for contouring as it’s the perfect colour for my pale skin, so pretty.

I did do it a bit more harsh than usual so it would be more obvious, it blends so easy & gives me a healthier more defined look.

Comment your old favourites or products you’ve used for a long time! I love trying new products ❤

Black Smokey Eye ft. red hair🖤

Hi lovelies,

Sorry I’ve been a little quiet, life has been CRAZY!!!! As you know I have a little boy, he’s now 9 months!! whaaaat. For anyone that follows me it only seems like 5 minutes since I was posting my birth story! Recently, I started a makeup artistry course (if you’d like me to keep you all updated on it let me know!)🙂

Anyway, I kept meaning to post this.. if you would like a pictorial on how I did this look step by step then pop a comment below 🙂

I’m actually loving this look.. so simple and easy to do but really effective 😍

For a black Smokey eye I literally just pack on the black onto my eyelid, you want to make sure it’s nice & dark closest to the lash line. Then go in with a warm brown (I used my Hoola bronzer) in the crease & blend that in to the black so it fades softly from black to brown. You may have to keep building colours & going back and forth between each colour but once you get to the intensity you want it’s so worth it!

To make my inner corners pop I used my favourite glitter liner as it stays so so well & whacked a load of mascara on my lashes (of course!)😊

I know black can be really scary but it doesn’t have to be. Just be confident & ROCK IT!! 💜

I will make sure I bring you more posts. I always miss you guys when I’m quiet on here! I hope you’ve all been well?😘
