Sweater Weather TAG!♥

Hi Beauties. ☼

After seeing this TAG on My Sweet Sugarplum‘s blog I decided that’d I’d join in & also do it. I hope you enjoy this Sweater Weather TAG & I TAG ALL of you to do it! 🙂

  • What is your favourite candle scent?

I absolutely LOVEEEE any vanilla scented candles, no matter what the weather! It’s just so comforting & homely smelling to me!

  • Coffee, tea or hot chocolate?

hot-chocolate

Hmmm.. I love a good coffee on a morning, but can’t beat a hot chocolate on a cold winter evening. So I’d have to go with hot chocolate as a winter warmer!!

  • What’s the best Autumn memory you have?

As a child I always remember going on long walks with the dog/s, golden leaves and trees surrounding us!

  • Which Autumn trend do you prefer – dark lips or winged eyeliner?

The combination!! 😉 But, if I were to choose one, I’d say dark lips! DARK MATTE LIPS!! *insert heart eyes emoji!!*

  • Your favourite fragrance for Autumn?

wonderstruck-enchanted

I absolutely ADORE Taylor Swift Wonderstruck Enchanted for the Autumn & colder months. It’s so warming & beautiful!

  • What is your favourite Autumnal food?

You cannot beat a good old pie & chips. YUM YUM.

  • What is Autumn weather like where you live?

Here in the UK it’s pretty cold, mainly wet (some dry days!) & leaves everywhere!!

  • What is your most worn sweater?

I haven’t really started wearing many of my sweaters yet. But when I go for walks I reach for my Crosshatch hoodie. It’s just soooo warm!!

  • Your must have nail polish for Autumn?

images

Any dark polish. I don’t have a particular favourite!

  • Football games or jumping into leaf piles?

Jumping into leaves, of course!!

  • Skinny jeans or leggings?

wpid-img_20150714_194938.jpg

ALWAYS skinny jeans.

  • Combat boots or UGGS?

I don’t wear either. Sorry!

  • Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?

Lattes? YES! Love them, they’re so yummy & very festive!

  • What song really gets you into Autumn?

Asymmetry_malloryknox

Hmm, this is tough! I don’t have a particular song, but I’m loving Mallory Knox Asymmetry at the moment.

  • Autumn mornings or evenings?

MORNINGS. They’re so much prettier!

  • What do you think about black friday?

It’s overrated! Don’t take part.

  • What’s an Autumn 2015 trend you’re loving?

wpid-20150602_195637.jpg

MATTE MAKEUP. Literally my dream, love all matte makeup! Especially lipstick 🙂

Skincare

Pamper night ❤

Hi beauties 🌞

Third time lucky. Every time I’ve written this post & gone to schedule it, it has somehow managed to delete itself -.- so here we go, third time lucky in getting this post up. 🙂

I was having a pamper night the other night & thought ‘why not show my beauties’. So here it is…

image

First of all I like to take every scrap of makeup off. I begin by taking most of it off with a makeup wipe, then cleansing my face with my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish. This makes your face feel so fresh & nourished, cannot beat it! 🙂

As another treat for my skin I used Lush’s Dark Angels black sugar and charcoal cleanser. This just revitalises the face, yes it’s messy but beneficial!!

image

Depending on how I’m feeling I’ll either have a bath or shower. This time I opted for a shower, to cleanse my hair I used Aussies Mega Shampoo,  LOVE this shampoo, its so nourishing you don’t even need a conditioner after!
To make myself smell luscious & clean I used Soap & Glory Sugar Crush, seriously, if you haven’t smelt this, you need to!!!!

image

However, if I was to need a conditioner I’ve been loving this Lush H’Suan Wen Hua hair treatment. It can be used on wet or dry hair & leaves it feeling silky soft. It has a strong smell, but it’s so good I don’t mind!!

image

I like to keep myself shaven but hate the rash that can come with it. Have no fear my lovelies, this little beauty stops shaving rash & moisturises the skin as you shave. I’ll never use crappy disposables again! 🙂

image

After my shower/bath I like to moisturise my skin. This time I went for my St Tropez Gradual Tan as I wanted a bit of a healthy glow too 🙂
My other go to normal moisturiser is the body shop body butter in the strawberry scent. Can’t beat it!

image

Lastly, this wouldn’t be a pamper routine without a bit of oil. I use this Avon Advanced Techniques Moroccan Argan Oil through the ends of my hair to prevent split ends & keep my hair healthy looking!

So there it is, my pamper night!
What’s your fave way to pamper yourself? ❤

Lots of Love Natasha

Makeup of the day

The Power of Makeup ❤

Hi beauties 🌞

After seeing Nikkie Tutorials’ ‘The Power Of Makeup’ video I was inspired to create my own makeup transformation!!:)
Nikkie wants to show how makeup can be fun, but these days it’s attached with a negative stigma. Her message to people who wears makeup is ‘have fun & don’t be ashamed!’

Watch Nikkie Tutorials’ video here.

image

Nobody’s perfect. We all have our imperfections!

The Power of Makeup

image

My makeup transformation above shows how I look without makeup (right) & how I look once I’ve applied a fair amount of makeup (left). I haven’t applied a ton, just a ‘summer look’ which is quite light on the skin!

image

Use makeup to enhance your features. Not mask them.
Every single one of you is beautiful. ❤

If you’d like to see how I created this look show me some love by liking or commenting on this post 👍

I challenge you all to do this. Its so fun to do but has such a strong message!

At the end of the day,  it’s your life. LIVE IT ❤

Lots of Love Natasha

Celebrity Makeup Looks

Collab: Taylor Swift ‘Bad Blood’ Inspired Makeup ❤

Hi beauties 🌞

I’ve collaborated with my beautiful twin beautifulbreakable on two different makeup looks from Taylor Swifts Bad Blood music video,  if you haven’t seen the video, you need to!!! 🙂 To see how Jess created her look below head over to her blog now!! ❤

image
Jess' Taylor Swift inspired look...

Anyway the look I chose to recreate was the one at the end where she’s sporting a ginger wig, bold winged liner & red lips…

image

If you’d like to know how I achieved this look, then keep reading..

Eyes

image

☆ I started off with the eyes to ensure no fallout ruined my face makeup.

☆ I used some sticky tape to create a sharp line;  position this just under your lower lashline as if it’s being extended!

☆ To achieve this eye look I only used shadows from the Sleek Au Natural Palette.

☆ I took the black shadow & marked out where I wanted the liner. Lining from the inner corner to the tip of the wing,  just carry on your lower lashline to create the wing, & stop at the tail of your brow! Also line the lower lashes.

image

☆ I then intensified & thickened the liner by going over it with more black shadow. You could use gel or liquid liner,  but I liked the look of shadow.

☆ Be sure to extend the liner into the inner corner too, to create even more of a feline eye!

image

☆ To add the sultry smokey look to this makeup I smoked out the outer corner of the eye with a dark brown shadow & the same black shadow used before!

☆ I also used the same dark brown to smoke out the lower lashline. Just keep smoking the sh** out of your eyes until your happy!

☆ I did apply black Kohl in my waterline and tightline after I did my base.

Face

image

☆ Once you’re happy with the eyes it’s time to perfect the skin! For my foundation I used my Revlon colourstay with my Real Techniques Buffing brush 🙂 but just use products you know work for you & suit your skin type.

☆ To hide any dark circles & imperfections I used my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. To set the face I used my trusty Rimmel Stay Matte powder 🙂

image

☆ To add some life into the face I applied my Benefit Hoola Bronzer as a contour & on my cheeks as a bronzer to warm up the face!

☆ Also to add some shape to the brows I filled in the tails with my ELF Brow Kit & set them with Benefit Gimme Brow.

image

☆ As the finishing touch I used my Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner in 24 red diva to line my lips. I then went over that with my Urban Decay Lipstick in ‘F-Bomb’.

Finished look…

What dya think? Not bad ey.. 🙂
