My Younique Journey..

Hi beauties ❤

As you all know, if you read my last post, I’m now a YOUNIQUE PRESENTER 😊 I’m so excited to start this new journey!!

First things first. I know your all probably thinking “oh god no. Not another person spamming us to buy their products!!”. Well beauties, that’s not what I’m about. If you want to buy the products, you can & by your own admission!! 😊❤

I received my kit last week & haven’t looked back. Younique is such a fabulous opportunity. It allows you to run your own business, how & when you want!!😊

Before I decided to take the plunge I’d always been sceptical. However, a friend was already with Younique & was looking to recruit another presenter. She talked me through what it was all about & how money is earnt. One thing led to another & here I am now, a fully fledged YOUNIQUE PRESENTER 😀

If anyone is interested to hear more about Younique, then please feel free to comment or get in touch through my Facebook page!! 😘

So here I am now. I’m starting out my journey & LOVING IT. ♥

Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream Review ❤

Hi beauties 🌞

Recently I’ve been getting back into bright bold lips. Here in the UK the weather has, slowly,  been brightening up & so my love for a bright lip begins all over again.

As you’ll know I love a red lip, especially a matte one & I’ve found the perfect lip product. The Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream in Rioja Red! 🙂

image

It retails for £4.99 & its worth every penny. It’s so pigmented you only need to apply this once to get full intensity of the colour in the tube!! It has a doe foot applicator, which actually makes it easy to apply, as it is a highly pigmented product there’s not much room for error.

image

As you apply this product it seems quite glossy, however, once applied, wait a few minutes & it dries down to a matte lip cream.

Once this lip cream has set it is bulletproof, literally!! I tried to rub it off my lips, no smudges. Nothing!! It also stains the lips so as you wear it you can’t really tell when it’s wearing off! To be honest, when I’ve wore this out, it has lasted most the day (including when I eat), without touching up! 🙂

image

For such an affordable product I cannot fault it. If your looking for a matte lippy be sure to check the Sleek Matte Me range, they have nudes & some purple colours too… click here to check the range out.

Sleek Makeup 3 for 2!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

So Sleek Makeup was on 3 for 2 & I couldn’t resist buying a few things 🙂

So to show you which 3 products I bought I have done a makeup look. If you’d like to see how I did this look comment below (I could also do a YouTube video!!)
image

image

The first thing I bought was the Luminaire highlighting concealer, from this first impression it’s not what I was hoping for! But I’ll keep you all posted about it 🙂

image

The second was the ‘oh so special’ I divine palette. This is the most beautiful palette ever!! It has a mix of both glittery colours & matte shades, it is a pinky palette, but is very unique. It is also very pigmented & don’t crease on the lid (even without a primer, on me!!..

image

Last but not least it’s the Matte Me lip cream in Rioja Red. Wow, what can I say these are great. They go on like a cream but dry to a matte making them long lasting. It is also very  pigmented 🙂

As I said, let me know if you want a tutorial on this, either on here or YouTube (or both!). Just let me know below beauties ❤

Thanks for reading beauties, have a fabulous day xo

♥ Rimmel Stay Matte Powder

♥ MUA Mosaic Blush in English Rose

♥ Benefit Hoola Bronzer

Eyes:

♥ MUA Heaven & Earth Pallette – used the lightest colour all over the lid & in the inner corners of my eyes. I used a mid tone on the outer half & then put a dark colour on the outer edges of the eye to darken the look!

♥ Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl in Black – tight-line & waterline.

♥ Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl in Purple – Smudged along lower lashline (hasn’t picked up well on camera though!)

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 ❤

MOTN: True Love!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

I really liked the makeup I wore last night, so I thought I’d share it with you 🙂

More importantly, I rediscovered my true love. Yes, by true love I mean the lipstick I’m wearing. Want to know what it is? It’s the one & only Revlon Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie

image

OH MY WORD. I can’t explain how much I love this colour, I ALWAYS used to use it, until it got broke on a night out. However, a month or so ago I decided to repurchase it & I can definitely see why I used to love it so much.

It’s a dark red/burgundy type shade, it suits my skin tone perfectly & goes with almost anything I wear 🙂

Look no further, here is what this beauty of a product looks like on the lips…

image

For the rest of my makeup I kept it simple, I did a subtle smokey eye & flawless base with a bit of a contour/bronzer 🙂

Let me know if you’ve tried this lip butter (or any others) & what you thought about it xo

Lots of Love Natasha
