Makeup of the day

Monday MOTD: My go-to look! ❤

Hi Beauties 🌞

I’ve been working so much recently that I haven’t had time to really wear much makeup! But when I do this is the look I ALWAYS steer towards…

I love wearing a simple eye look with fresh,  dewy looking skin and pop of red on the lips. It’s so flattering & perks me up! 🙂

What’s your go – to feel good makeup look? ❤

Lots of Love Natasha

Pamper night…♥

Hi beauties.

So the other night I decided to have a but of a pamper night before meeting friends. So I thought I’d share it with you all 🙂

image

First a shower was definitely needed after a long, sweaty (ewww!!), day at work!

image

For my body I used my Original Source Lemon shower gel, love these shower gels, they smell amazing 🙂

For my hair I decided to give it a good condition. To start with I used Avon Naturals Colour Moisture shampoo, I then deep moisturised my hair with Aussies 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor Deep Conditioner! I absolutely love this, it leaves the hair so silky soft & smells lovely!!

image

After shower selfie was definitely called for!! ☆

I always wrap my hair like this as I have such thick hair this helps to dry it a bit before I let it down!

image

After showering I like to pluck my eyebrows. Today they were particularly bad as I don’t like over plucking them & tend to leave it til they’re really in need.

To pluck my eyebrows I just brush them through with a spooly & use some generic tweezers to tweeze out the hairs that are out of place. This is usually the arch, under the tail of the brow & in between the brows!

image

Here’s the finished result of my freshly plucked brows. They aren’t perfect, but that’s what makeup’s for 😀

image

I then did my makeup to go meet my friends 🙂 I went for natural looking skin & eyes with a pop of pink on the lips! Loving this right now, what do you think?

What do you like to do for a pamper night?

Thanks for reading beauties, have a fabulous day xo

Lots of Love Natasha ❤

Very Inspiring Blogger Award!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

First I would like to appologise for my lack of posts, I’m not going to go into what’s been wrong with me as its a very personal matter. All you guys need to know is I’m doing fine now & I am back on the horse (so to speak) 🙂 xo

Anyway…

I’VE BEEN NOMINATED FOR THE VERY INSPIRING BLOGGER AWARD!!!

WOW. I did not expect this. Not only have I got one nomination, but two! From the beautiful ninarossbeauty & gorgeous psmeganelizabeth! I cannot thank these beautiful ladies enough. They are such talented bloggers, it means so much that they even take time out of their day to read my blog let alone like it so much as to nominate me! I have built a friendship with these two girls over the short period I’ve been blogging so I really do suggest you go show them some love over on their blogs (embedded links on their names!) you will not be disappointed! Once again, a massive THANK YOU to both you girlies for your support ♥

Rules

  1. Thank and link the amazing person who nominated you
  2. List the rules and display the award
  3. Share seven facts about yourself
  4.  Nominate fifteen other amazing blogs and comment on their posts to let them know they have been nominated
  5. Optional: Proudly display the award logo on your blog and follow the blogger who nominated you

7 facts about me

  1. I’m an identical twin, we have the same initials, well mine are NJL & hers are JNL – which I think is pretty darn cool 🙂
  2. I have one tattoo on my left side, me & my best friend both got the tattoo at the same time!
  3. Kit Kat Chunky’s are my weakness.
  4. Although I obviously love makeup & beauty, I also enjoy watching football & F1 🙂
  5. People always seem to be able to talk to me. I love to listen to people & just generally helping them if I can.
  6. I was terrified to start blogging & to upload my first beauty video on YouTube, but after I got over the initial fear that potentially millions of people would see what I was writing, I haven’t looked back. It’s the best thing I’ve done & I say if you want to start either then go for it, what have you got to lose?
  7. I may seem like a confident person, really I’m not. Yes I do have days where I feel more confident than others, but generally I’m not that confident.

Nominations

judyandmakeup Judy’s blog has been a favourite of mine since starting blogging. She has such great, informative & helpful reviews I know I can always rely on her to give an honest opinion! She truly deserves this award for her dedication & beauty knowledge 🙂

jessdoesmakeup– I have recently fallen in love with Jess’ blog, she shares products she loves & hates so you know you can always rely on her opinion. For all things beauty, makeup & skincare go checkout her blog, I cannot get enough!!

gretalinbeautyGreta’s blog is FAB, she definitely knows what she’s talking about ‘a professional makeup junkie’, if you aren’t following her blog then please do, you will not be disappointed. This award is definitely deserved, she is such a lovely person & I always look forward to reading her posts 🙂

simplygorgeous– From makeup & hair to fashion & lifestyle Chantel’s blog has it all. I have followed Chantel’s blog since I started blogging myself & always get excited when I see a new post. She definitely deserves this award for the amazing content she creates 🙂

I know I haven’t got 15 nominees but to be honest I haven’t been blogging for long, so I don’t really have 15 blogs I’d nominate. I would have nominated ninarossbeauty & psmeganelizabeth, but obviously they nominated me so that’d defeat the object of this award!!

Anyway, I’m sure you’ll all LOVE these 6 beautiful girlies as much as I do, they’re all so talented & if you go follow them you definitely won’t look back ♥

Hi beauties.
I was sat wondering what post I should do for you today, when it dawned on me that you don’t actually know that much about me. So here I have the ‘Get To Know Me’ tag 🙂 I hope you all enjoy this post, if you’d like to do it feel free (will leave the questions below) , it’d be cool if you tagged me too so I can read your post & get to know more about you beautiful people too! 🙂

7.7.13
my twin, Jess, & myself :
1- Are you named after anyone?  
Not that I know of.
2. When was the last time you cried?
Urm, probably when my twin went to university! *violins*
3. Do you have kids?
No.
4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself? 
Yes, I think I’m quite a friendly person, who’s easy to get along with 🙂
5. Do you use sarcasm a lot? 
Some days more than others. Depends on my mood!
6. Will you ever bungee-jump? 
I would love to do it one day. If I ever did I’d probably do it for a charity, then I definitely couldn’t back out!
7. What’s your favourite cereal? 
This may be boring for some, but I love cornflakes.
8. What’s the first thing you notice about people? 
Their smile. Cannot beat a genuine & honest smile 😀
9. What is your eye colour? 
Green, sometimes they look more blue, I think they have got lighter & change some days!
10. Scary movie or happy endings?
Depends my mood. But I can’t watch a scary movie alone, so I’d probably go with a happy ending!
11. Favourite smells?
Taylor Swift’s Wonderstruck; it’s such a girly, floral & fruity scent (great for everyday as its light) – I love it & I’m a huge fan of Taylor Swifts 🙂 (For a review on Taylor Swift Wonderstruck click here)
12. Summer or winter? 
Definitely summer, love the hot weather, summer clothes & experimenting with colourful makeup.
13. Computer or television? 
Computer, couldn’t live without it! Also, we can now watch TV online! (cheated a bit there;))
14. What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home? 
Probably when I visited Florida, but it was a family holiday so wasn’t alone!

I’d like to think I’m good at doing makeup.

Scunthorpe, UK.

Walking the dogs, playing around with different makeup looks, seeing friends/family & of course shopping 😀
18. Do you have any pets? 
Yes, I have 2 dogs; a 14 y/o Pekingese named Penny & a 6 y/o cocker spaniel named Lilly ♥
19. Favourite movie?  
Wow, this is a tough one. I love so many different films, but if I had to choose it’d probably be out of The Holiday, My Best Friends Wedding or The Runaway Bride (LOVE Julia Roberts).
20. Do you have any siblings?
Yes, I have an identical twin sister (pic above) named Jess (her blog is beautifulbreakable), she’s 10 minutes older.
21. What do you want to be when you grow up?
