Maybelline Lash Sensational Review!

Hi beauties,

Another review, yes another haha! After having my blogging break I seem to have accumulated new products! Yaaay🙂

I’ve always loved Maybelline mascaras but not tried this, even though my twin swears by it!

It’s safe to say I should’ve tried it sooner!! 😮

The packaging is just the basic Maybelline shape, but the colour, how gorgeous is that rose gold packaging?😍 I’m in love!!

What Maybelline claim…

Result: A Layered, Multiplied Effect. Low wax formula for intense blackness without sticking lashes together

Tested on real women*:

90% Reveals layers & layers of lashes

90% Gives a multiplied lash look

90% Volumises every layer of lashes

90% Layer-reveal brush captures even the tiniest of lashes

Do I agree with these claims?

Plain & simply, I do! ☺

I absolutely LOVE this mascara. The formula is perfect, not too wet but not dry! I can be picky, I hate really wet mascaras but also hate drier formula mascaras!! *laughs* I didn’t notice any smudging on myself either.. not even on the lower lash line!! WOW😃

The spoon like wand also cups round your lashes perfectly, grabbing hold of all lashes even those small ones we didn’t notice 😃

As you can see from the image above it really does lengthen & seperate lashes as well as giving fab volume!😍

BONUSSSSS….

This mascara doesn’t smudge & smear so no messy marks on your glasses! WOOP!!

Have you tried this mascara? What did you think? ☺

First Impression Friday

First Impression Friday: Ardell Demi Wispies ❤

Hi beauties. 🌞

After hearing so many good things about these Ardell ‘Demi Wispie’ lashes I purchased a pair. That was about a year ago. They’ve been sat in my makeup draw waiting to be used, & finally I decided it was time.

CUE A FIRST IMPRESSION FRIDAY!!!

image

I started off by applying some of the lash glue, already provided, to the band of the lashes (pictured below!!!).

I waited a few minutes for the glue to go tacky, then using my tweezers (they’re easier and smaller than using fingers!) I maneuvered the lashes so they sat on my lash line. Trying to get them as close to the lashes as I could without sticking the falsies to my real lashes.

image

Once you’ve got the hang of it, its not too hard, but I’m not kidding you,  I probably spent about 20 minutes fiddling with the first pair trying to find the best and easiest way to get them on.

image

However, once you get the first of the lashes on you can see an instant & dramatic difference. For someone who has quite long lashes naturally I wasn’t expecting too much. I would definitely repurchase!!
But as you can see from the picture above they really do make a difference!!

image

I really do see why everyone loves these lashes so much. They are just like real lashes, in how they feel and look. They are so high quality, I can see them lasting a good few wears! 🙂

It’s safe to say I won’t leave my lashes at the bottom of my makeup draw anymore!!

Have you tried these or any other false lashes? What did you think? ❤

Lots of Love Natasha

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

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

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 ❤

Never ask a girl…

I saw this picture had been posted by Wayne Goss (Goss Makeup Artist on YouTube) on facebook!
I absolutely loved it, it’s so true! A good eyeliner is never a quick task & took me years of practicing to perfect. I still have bad days, nobody’s perfect!

P.S. I have a huuuuge fashion haul post coming for tomorrow 🙂

Lots of Love Natasha ❤
