Disney

Disney Series: Belle!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

So when I asked which Disney Princess you’d like to see, Ariel & Belle won. As I did an Ariel inspired look last time, it’s time for Belles inspired look 🙂

If you’d like to know how to create this Belle inspired look then keep reading…

Base

As always I started off with a freshly cleansed face. To prime my skin I used MACs Prep & Prime (review will be up soon!!). I then went on to apply my Revlon Colourstay Foundation with the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. To conceal my under eye circles I used a small amount of Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, I tapped this into the skin using my ring finger. This is the most delicate finger & the warmth from your finger helps the product melt into the skin better 🙂

Eyes

eyesFor the eyes I wanted to keep the look simple so I decided to just use this quad from Avon, it’s the True Colour Mocha Latte Quad! I used the light pink shade all over the lid, I then took the light brown shade in the crease as a transition shade. To deepen the outer corners I sketched in a  winged sort of look to the outer corner & blended inwards but not past the half way point on my lid. To make this look even smokier, I used the metallic brown shade in between the pink & dark brown colours, this is so the colours transition nicely from light to dark. As this is how you achieve a great smokey eye!!

To emphasise the lashline I used my Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl in Black along the upper & lower lashline & the tightline. I drew a very thin line on the top & smudged it out slightly to add to the smokey effect! I then did the same to the lower lashline & carried the liner up towards the brow to create a cat-eye effect to the look. To open the eyes I applied my Rimmel Kohl in White to the lower waterline.

This wouldn’t be a flirtatious Belle look without fluttery lashes, so to top the eye makeup off I used Benefits They’re Real Mascara!

Brows, cheeks & lips

browcheeklipBrows

To start off with I combed through my brows with the Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara (medium deep), this gives quite a bit of definition so you could stop here. But to ensure my brows where nice & precise I went in with my brown brow pencil to fill in any sparse areas!

Cheeks

For the cheeks I kept it very simple, Belle always looks blushed in the films but not overly pink. So I went with a peach blush, the one I used was Natural Collection Blush in Peach Melba 🙂 I placed this on the apples of my cheeks (to find where this is, smile & it’s the high bit you get under your eyes!) & swept the colour back. I find this application method to be the most flattering.

Lips

To Complete the look I opted for a simple lip. I just decided to line my lips with my ELF Long Wear Lip Liner in Mauve Luxe!

Hair

To make this look more polished I put my hair into a bun. I then added in a small rose hair grip into the back of my hair as this look wouldn’t be complete without a rose! I also pulled out some short strands of hair around my face to frame my face a bit!

Here is the completed look. I hope you all enjoyed my Belle inspired makeup look! This is such a wearable look, either day or night, I think it’s timeless (very fitting for the Disney story!). Let me know what you think 🙂

Thank you for reading beauties, have a fabulous day! ☼

Lots of Love Natasha ❤

Summer Soft Skin: Top 5 Body Butters!♥

Hi Beauties. ☼

Sorry I haven’t posted this weekend, but it’s been a busy one. Although I’ve been off work, its been lovely weather so I’ve been making to most of it & soaking up the sun 🙂

As it’s summer now, I tend to get dry skin (well my body anyway), so I like to moisturise it every other day or so! I’m going to share with you my top 5 body butter picks from my least favourite to my absolute favourite…

wpid-20140721_184618.jpg

5. Vaseline – Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Lotion. This is a very intense moisturiser, as the name would suggest. It retails at £4.99, which in my eyes is pretty cheap as this is a huge 400ml bottle. I tend to just use this when my legs are feeling particularly dry as it instantly makes them soft & smooth again, especially as it’s unfragranced I know it won’t irritate!! 🙂

I would give this moisturiser a 4/5, it does what it says on the bottle! I definitely recommend it for those with dry, sensitive skin or anyone who needs a good intense moisturiser! It’s only my least fave as it doesn’t have a scent & is pretty boring! (haha).

4. Avon Naturals – Cherry Blossom Moisturising Body Whip.I actually really enjoy this body moisturiser, it does moisturise well & smells absolutely gorgeous. It is a nice silky consistency & almost leaves your skin with a little glow. I don’t know how much this was as it was a present, but I doubt it’d be over £5.

I give this body whip a 4/5, just because it does the job but it’s not the best I’ve tried.

3. Garnier – Summerbody Moisturising Lotion Sun-kissed Look. I really like this moisturiser, it has a hint of tanning agent in it so after it develops & has sunk in fully it leaves a lovely glow to the skin. It really does moisturise the skin, I used this the other night & when I woke my skin felt as soft as a babies & had a lovely glow. To see a full review click here.

I’d give this moisturiser a 4.5/5. It is a great moisturiser/gradual tanner, it just leaves a bit of a tanning smell (albeit not half as bad as others!)

2. Soap & Glory – Sugar Crush.OH MY GOSH. I just can’t get over this smell, it smells amazing, mouthwateringly amazing (literally!!), if you haven’t smelt it, you NEEDto!! Anyway, this is actually a great moisturiser, it ticks all the boxes in that it moisturises the body, absorbs fast & smells heavenly. This is only a little sized one but you can get the big tub for £10.50.

I give this a 5/5 it’s everything I want in a moisturiser. You can’t go wrong with it 🙂

AND THE WINNER IS…

1. The Body Shop – Strawberry Body Butter. If you read my other post I mentioned this in, you’d know I LOOOOVE the smell of it. It reminds me of Calpol, yes the medicine, haha! It’s lush 🙂 As well as smelling fab, it does an amazing job at moisturising, it leaves my skin feeling gorgeous. It’s just a shame it’s £13 a tub, which is quite expensive for a moisturiser to me!

I definitely recommend this body butter & give it a 5/5, just go try it & see for yourself 🙂

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post. Let me know what your fave body moisturisers are, I’m always wanting to try more 🙂 xo

How To: Heatless Curls!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

Last night I decided to curl my hair, without heat! I often use this method as it is doesn’t damage your hair at all & gives a cute effect too!! 🙂

It’s quite simple; firstly I wash my hair & brush it so its detangled – the Lee Stafford Detangling Spray is particularly good if you have unruly hair! – I then apply my Avon Moroccan Argan Oil into the mid-lengths & ends (focusing more product on the ends!). This product is great, although I have only just started using it I can tell a difference. My hair feels super soft & smooth it’s amazing! It also helps to detangle the hair, which is FAB as it means less damage! YAAAAY 😀

wpid-20140608_095759.jpg

After ‘prepping’ my hair ready to be styled I plait it into two braids, one at each sides of my head. I do quite a tight braid as my hair is quite thick so if I don’t it doesn’t really do anything to my hair! However, if you want even tighter/more defined curls you could seperate your hair into 4, two braids on each side of your head 🙂 wpid-photogrid_1402093403391.jpgSo here’s what it looks like in the morning when you take out the plaits! Before you take out the plaits make sure they’re completely dry, otherwise if they’re still damp the curl will probably just fall straight out or not last as long! I’ve found this style to stay in my hair for a couple of days, it really is an effective way to curl/wave your hair without causing damage! So whats not to love? 🙂
