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? ☺

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 ❤

Guest Post: Spring Makeup Look!♥

I just want to say how much I’ve enjoyed this collab with Kayla! She’s such a great person & I’ve loved to chat with her, it really has been a fab experience! If you haven’t checked out Kayla’s blog you NEED to (link at the end of the post!) – she’s such a beautiful & talented blogger. I know you guys will love her & her blog as much as I do! 🙂 ❤
I’m so honored to have the privilege of being on Natasha’s blog! We both were inspired by Tanya Burr’s Spring get ready with me look…here’s my Spring Makeup Look!

Doesn’t everyone make a funny face in their ‘no-makeup selfie’ and then a ‘kissy face selfie’ once all done up?! No, just me…okay then.

The first thing I use before I apply any makeup, I use my go to moisturizer (not pictured above). Next up is Maybelline’s instant age rewind eraser dark spot corrector and I put that on my blemishes and around my nose. I follow that up with my Covergirl outlast stay fabulous 3 in 1 in #805 Ivory. Since it’s Spring and I’ve started to tan, I come in with my new elf golden bronzer. I’ve been loving blush lately and I just picked up a new baked one from elf that is more like a highlight, I absolutely love it! It’s in the shade Pinktastic and at $3, I HIGHLY recommend it!
I add some elf eyelid primer and then go over my brows with Maybelline great lash in clear. Now it’s finally time to start my Spring eyes. I applied NYX in MPE03 Aqua Green to my waterline and then brought it up into my inner corners and a little to my tight line. To my lids, I used Revlon’s singles in Petal all over the lid and then came in with Oyster, which I also used as a highlight under my brows. Then I apply some of my favorite mascara of the moment, CoverGirl clumpcrusher extensions in very black. To finish the look, I use my fave Spring lip combo, Khroma Beauty (now known as Kardashian Beauty) joystick in Sea Coral and then I go over that with NYX butter gloss in BLG08 Apple Strudel. Last, but not least I set it with elf’s makeup mist & set.
