Weekend makeup

Hellooo :)

I went out this weekend to a friends for a BBQ and a few drinks which was lots of fun :). So i thought i'd share with you what makeup i wore, hope you like it!

I wore the same face makeup as i did in my everyday makeup post. The only thing i changed was that i used an ELF powder blush in 'Candid Coral' instead of the Dream Touch Blush.

So first of I used the skintone colour from the Sleek 'Storm' palette all over my eyelid (i pretty much use this everyday and it's nearly gone :( ahhhhhh). I then used the greyey/blue (on the bottom row, 2nd in from the left) on the outer 3rd of my eye and blended lots haha! I also used this on my lower lashline. I then used Maybelline's Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Liner in 'Black' to do winged liner, which i loveeeeeeeeeeee! Next i used a Barry M eyeliner in black on my waterline and applied 1 coat of Maybeline Volum' Express The Falsies mascara.

On my lips i just used GOSH 'Darling'.

Take no notice of my hair in this photo, i'm trying hard not to use heat on it for a while in the hope that it may encourage it to grow!!!! :)

Thanks so much

Bargains :D

So i went to ASDA with my mum to do some food shopping haha! And i ended up coming out with a few bits from George for myself :)..

I love long tops that you can team with leggings and some sandals for summer time and i am in love with this one! I especially love the peter pan collar. I wore it this weekend (so it's a little creased haha) teamed with a tan, plaited belt cinched in at the waist and some gold sandals :). This was £8 so quite a bargain really, yayy!

Next i got a lovely pair of purpely/grey dolly shoes. I loveeeeee anything with bows on, so had to have them :). I think they'll look great with some jeans and will be just right for shopping trips where you'll be on your feet all day!

Then i got a few bits of jewellery...

 I love these turquoise studs, i've been looking for some like these for quite a while now and i'm so glad i found some as i've already worn them so much haha!

 I love gold, bronzey jewellery!
I loveeeee this necklace! It looks really nice with the gold leaf earrings above.

Hope you enjoyed :)
Lots of love xxxxxx

Longing for long hair :(

Hey guys!! :)
So this post is all about hair haha!
At the moment my hair is just a little past my shoulders and i'm desperately trying to grow it..
I'm pretty indecisive, one minute i want short hair and the next i want long haha..
I wash my hair once every two days and switch up which shampoo and conditioner i use, at the moment i'm using pantene pro v for coloured hair.
I had my hair cut last night, just trimmed to get rid of the dreaded split ends! My mums a hairdresser which really helps as i can have my hair cut regularly and not pay anything :D
I'm also going to try and go without any heat on my hair for at least a month, i hope it encourages my hair to grow at least a little!

Do any of you girls have any tips for growing your hair?

Thanks for reading :)

Everyday makeup :)

Hellooooo :)
So this is my very first blog post and as of now i have zero followers haha! But i'm hoping that will change.. Fingers crossed anyway!
I decided that i wanted to write a post on how i do my everyday makeup, it's pretty simple but i wanted to show you anyway :)

To begin with i always make sure i'm applying my makeup onto a clean, moisturised face! I then use the 'I love... strawberries & milkshake glossy lip balm' to ensure my lips are nice and smooooth :) i tend to switch up which lip balm i use but i loveeeeeeeee the smell of this which is always a bonus.
I then put the elf 'Mineral Infused Face Primer' all over my face, i love this primer it makes my face feel so smooth and silky.  And for £6 it's definately a steal :) haha.
For foundation i use Rimmel's 'Renew & Lift' and  myface.cosmetics 'mymix foundation'. I mix the two together for the perfect shade. I lightly apply the foundation all over my face using the elf angled foundation brush from the studio line.

Next I apply concealer I use Max Factors 'Pan Stik' (although this isn't a concealer I find it works well for me) to conceal dark circles and blemishes. I gently pat the concealer into my skin rather than rubbing. I then use Maybelline's 'Dream Touch Blush', unfortunately i don't know which colour it is as it doesn't have a name :( but it does give a nice, rosy tint which i like a lot :)
Soap & Glory's 'Hocus Focus' works great for me as a highlight, i use it on my cheekbones, under my brows, down the bridge of my nose and on my cupids bow. You can also use it as a moisturiser or mix it in with your foundation, which i imagine would look rather lovely too! :)

On to the eyes..
First off i do my brows, i use a Wild and Crazy eyeshadow in the shade 'Too Sexy'. I comb my brows through to make sure they are where i want them haha! I then use an angled brush to fill in my brows, i use lighter strokes at the start of my brows and tend to use more product on the ends.
I then use a light eyeshadow similar to my skincolour from the Sleek 'Storm' palette (love it!!!!) to put all over my eyelid, this creates a nice, natural effect that's easy to wear through the day. I then pull a darker colour through my crease.
To define my eyes  i use the Bourjois 'Smoky Effect' eyeliner on my waterline and top and bottom lash line.
Then i curl my lashes and apply 2 coats of Max Factor's 'False Lash Effect Fusion'.

For my lips i use a GOSH lipstick in the shade 'Darling' which i'm sure you will have all heard about haha!! I do love a nude lip but just recently i've been using my 'Dream Touch Blush' over the top and i absolutely love the colour it gives.

So that's the makeup done :) heres what it looks like..
