I got a be eyeshadow pallet today! (Pictures coming soon, I’m just about to swatch them) its the Aqua pallet by Sleek. And oh my the colours are pretty af! But some of them don’t translate the way I’d like them to on the skin which is a tiny bit disappointing, overall however, I’m pretty glad I got it. I had to have a little play around in it, see how I liked it. Aqua gets a thumbs up for me - especially as it’s £7.99 I think that’s very reasonable for a decent quality eyeshadow.

I am ready for spring and spring colours!! I finally gave in and purchased candy yum-yum lipstick. I don’t regret it one bit!

On the eyes is Sleeks oh so special palette with Maybeline 24hr tattoo in pink gold on the centre with Shu Uemura glitter shadow to top it off (you know I love me some glitter). Lashes sultry lashes from Primark.

Blusher is also Sleek,  pink parfait and pink ice. 

I’m wearing Sleeks new CC cream (in medium) instead of foundation. So far I really like it. It has a matte finish and it has a very very good coverage for a CC cream, I was still able to cream contour and highlight without any problems. I don’t think the amount you get is worth the price you pay, you only get 25ml (0.84 floz) for £8.99.  But it is beautiful on the skin, and it wears very well throughout the day. It’s certainly worth a look if you are looking for a CC cream.

I hope you are all having a wonderful day!

Ps:I’m in the process of trying to grow out my eyebrows, do any of you have any tips ?

As I have always maintained you cannot go wrong with gold and brown shadow! These are from the vice2 Urban decay (I’m not bored with it yet!)

Pink plaid and Snob by Mac with Prom queen lipgloss by collection 2000. I am wearing this colour combo left right and centre I love it.

My best friend was very kind and got me Drawing show brush liner by Etude house (a Korean brand) and I will say with no hesitation it is the best liquid liner I have ever owned, the brush is perfect and tiny. It doesn’t release excess product like other brush liners. And it’s actually black-black not a grey black or blue black !!! If you can get your hands on this I say get it, get two even! If you’re looking for hassle free liner this is the product I swear to you.

On my cheeks I have pink Mint by sleek with a little bit of pixie pink also by sleek because I felt pink mint was a bit too shimmery for what I was going with.

(Left with flash right without flash.)

Today I got the new Sleek blush by 3 in Pink Lemonade and Californ.I.A  

Pink Lemonade (First four pictures) is made up of Pink mint, Macaroon (a cream blusher) and Icing sugar. It is most probably my favorite  out of the two as I’m not a huge fan for cream blushers. Icing sugar is lovely I will be rocking this on my cheeks for a week or so. That said I will also be rocking Macaroon but not on my cheeks, but instead on my lips! It’s such a nice pink.

Californ.I.A(last four)OC, The surf and Newport peach. I don’t know if I will be using these for my cheeks but I will be using these on my lips for sure. They are creamy and pigmented. All are very neutral colours so are perfect for day time wear.

In my eyes Sleek can do no wrong when it comes to  blushes - These are just two more to add to the collection.  I’d recommend Pink Lemonade in a heartbeat. Not so much  Californ.I.A.

This is a post about making the most of your products!
I believe products are multifunctional and should be used as such. Do not shy away from using your products and brushes for more then what they are ‘meant’ to be used for.
In this picture I am wearing cream blusher and eyeshadow as lipstick. I didn’t have the lip colour that I wanted so I made it! I used a flat eye shadow brush to apply it all. 
Remember you spend X amount of money on your makeup it’s only right that you get the absolute most you can get out of it! Also it gives you a chance to experiment and become creative with your makeup, it allows you the chance to think out side of the box! 
I urge you to have a look at your makeup collection and change the way you look at it! Change the way you apporach it. 
And in other news I have started a instagram for this blog so there should be mini videos/tutorials/live swatches floating around soon when I finally get the time to do some.

hori-tarper asked: You're so pretty! Do you have any makeup tips for beginners?

Thank you so much!

Tip 1: brushes! A good set of brushes. I’m not saying you have to go and spend an arm and a leg on brushes that’s not the case. What you will find is that a lot of brand have the same manufacturer for their brushes and they just change the packaging and the logo. So you can buy the same brushes from another company for half the price! When I get onto my laptop I will post the link to all the brushes that I use.

Tip 2: practice and learn. Practice on your face, on your friends faces, on your families faces even on face charts. Whilst you’re practicing you’ll be learning. Also some makeup brands (at their shop or counter in a department store) do workshops/master classes completely free of charge. Go to as many as possible. To find out about them I have an email address that I use to sing up to makeup companies newsletter so it doesn’t get in the way of my normal emails.

Tip 3: ALWAYS remember what works for someone else might not work for you! And that that people who work in a makeup shop or on a makeup counter can get it wrong their word isn’t always truth. Don’t get something if you feel uncomfortable with it!!! I can’t stress that enough I learned the hard way - walking around with a foundation that made me look orange (it was vile)

Tip 4: be aware of your skin! If your skin starts doing something it doesn’t normally do stop! Get a different foundation or primer or whatever it is that is making your skin act up.

I hope that helps :)

MUA (superdrug and online) nectar is so similar to MAC vegas volt (on of my fave summer time lipsticks). 
Nectar is only £1 and as you can see the pigment is pretty good. Lasting power isn’t too great but for £1 you cannot complain. If you use a lipstick sealer you should be fine.

Sleek matte me: Brink pink
If you are looking for a matte neon pink look no further! Brink pink is it! If you have been following me for awhile you’ll know I love me a bright bold lip colour, And I’ll admit I was getting bored of my usual red or purple/pink lip, I was looking to switch it up. And for the price of £4.99 it was a steal!
I will say it is quite drying on the lips,similar to the affects of ruby woo by mac - so some lip conditioning is in order first. I use Carmex before applying Brink pink and it seems to do the trick.
I really do like the Matte Me collection, it’s very similar to the Lime crime velvetines collection just at half the price which is perfect for the pocket.
