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. ♥

I’m going to do a post on how to achieve this look & about the products used!! 🙂

Makeup of the day

MOTN: Hot Plum!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

So I wore this makeup last week out to dinner with my boyfriend, he took me out before I went on holiday 🙂 I really liked how it turned out so I thought I’d make a post for you…

Here is what the makeup looked like:

wpid-20140801_173005.jpg
Products Used:

Face:

♥ L’Oreal True Match Foundation

♥ 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!)

♥ Maybelline One By One Mascara in Black.

Eyebrows:

♥ Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara in Medium Brown – already in looooove with this product 😀

Lips:

Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in Hot Plum – this is such a beautiful colour & the formula of these lippys are gorgeous!!

wpid-20140801_173307.jpgAS you can see in this picture the MUA Blush just gives you a rose-y glow, it honestly does look lovely on the cheek & for the price I’m not going to complain 🙂

Have you tried any MUA products? Do you like them? Any recommendations?

Thanks for reading beauties, have a fabulous day xo

Lots of Love Natasha ❤

Last-Minute Holiday Haul!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

As you know I’m going on holiday on Monday (will probably be there by the time this is up), so last Wednesday I picked up the last-minute things I needed. So today I’m going to share with you what I picked up…

wpid-20140731_195753.jpgI had run out of my Batiste Dry Shampoo a while back (click here to check-out my product empties post) so I decided to re-buy it. They were half price in Superdrug so I got two different scents; I got the cherry & tropical ones. They smell heavenly.

I know they’ll come in handy on holiday as I know in the heat my hair will probably get greasy very quickly, so yay for Batiste!!

wpid-20140731_195802.jpg

I needed a new shower gel so I went for this Original Source Lemon & Tea Tree one. I’ve had this in the past & it smells lovely. It was also reduced down to 99p so I couldn’t resist!

wpid-20140731_195849.jpgI’ve had my eye on Benefit’s Gimme Brow for a while now, but I just can’t justify spending the money, especially when I’m trying to save the pennies. So whilst in town I spotted Maybelline’s version, their Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara. So I decided to get it in medium brown (this is the middle shade!), I tried it as soon as I got home & so far I’m very impressed (will be writing a review soon!).

wpid-20140731_195914.jpg

So Maybelline had a ‘buy one get the 2nd half price’ deal, so I had to buy a second item. I’ve been looking for a nice wearable purple lipstick & when I saw this one I know I just had to get it. This lipstick is part of Maybelline’s Colour Sensational range, I got it in the shade ‘906’ Hot Plum.

Here’s what the lipstick looks like on…

wpid-20140731_200001.jpg

wpid-20140731_200044.jpgI wasn’t going to buy any more makeup products, that was until I spotted this. How beautiful is it? This is an MUA (Makeup Academy) Mosaic Blush in the shade English Rose. Can you believe this gorgeous product was only £2.50? I love MUA makuep, its brilliant for the price!!

Here are some swatches with & without flash…

With flash:

wpid-20140731_200158.jpg

Without flash:

wpid-20140731_200149.jpg

As you can see it just leave a pink-y sheen to your skin. I haven’t tried it on my face yet, but I’m sure it looks lovely 🙂

wpid-20140731_200232.jpg

This wouldn’t be a decent haul without any random products. The first is a 2-pin travel adapter, as I’m going abroad I need an adapter to be able to charge my phone, you just plug your phone charger into it & then into the socket abroad. I got this from Boyes for £1.50.

The second random thing is hay-fever & allergy relief tablets, I have only just started to get hay-fever in the past few years! It’s really annoying so I’m taking these as a precaution!

The third is razors, I’ll probably only take one but I was in need of new razors. We don’t want man legs on holiday now, do we girlies?

wpid-20140731_210731.jpg

The last thing I bought were these travel empties (not empty now as I’ve filled them already!). We (me & beautifulbreakable) thought it’d be a good idea to decant shampoo, conditioner & mouthwash into smaller bottles in order to save on weight when packing. We have also decanted some moisturisers & cleansers into the little pots too. These are also handy as the packaging is clear, which is recommended when traveling, so customs can see whats inside.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this haul & maybe got a few ideas on what you can do to make traveling easier. If you’d like to know more about any of these products let me know in the comments below 🙂

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

Lots of Love Natasha ❤

Project 10 Pan

Project 10 Pan!♥

After seeing GretaLinBeauty‘s post about starting her project 10 pan I thought it’d be a good idea to join her in this, she has welcomed all and tagged whoever would like to do this, so feel free to join! 🙂

Project 10 pan is quite self explanatory, the rules are;

1. I can’t purchase new products until I hit pan or use up 10 products from my makeup collection.

2. Every time I hit pan on a product, I will do an in-depth review.

3. I can only purchase a new product on one condition: I run out of that product and I have no backups.

Also, project pan means there will be lots more posts from me, as I am going to do a few products I have already hit pan on. This is very exciting for me as it means I will get to use up old products to be able to replace them with new ones, & who doesn’t like makeup shopping? 🙂

If you would like to join myself & GretaLinBeauty in this then feel free, EVERYONE’S welcome.. the more the merrier.

Good Luck Everyone! 😀
