Trying out new makeup products!!! (First Impressions)

Image
Hello Everybody!!! Welcome back to my blog! 
So yesterday I went to Manchester to try and do some Christmas shopping and while I was there I decided that treating myself was an excellent idea! I'm going to make this post into two parts. In this post, I shall share with you what my first thoughts and in the second I'll show you the look I tried to create.
I haven't really bought new makeup in a while so I thought it would be nice to try and get some things that I could use for autumn. Not only that, I wanted to add to my growing collection of makeup. 
The first thing I bought is an eye shadow palette from Bourjois called Palette Les Nudes. Personally, I don't think I would call 'nude' shades, however, they are natural yet shimmery shades. My first thoughts were that they were really soft! The shimmery shades also don't have chunky glitter in them, which makes me very happy because my eyes are sensitive to things like that. 
Overall my initial thoughts are v…

Night Out Makeup!

Hello, everybody! Welcome back to my blog!
Now, I am not one who really enjoys going on nights out... In fact, the moment I hear my friends suggest it I shriek! I don't drink alcohol so bare in mind that I am completely sober throughout the whole night and I'm usually tucked up in bed by 9pm.
However, on the odd occasion that I do make it out, I enjoy going full glam when it comes to eye makeup. As I said in my previous post about my new everyday makeup, doing bolder and brighter looks has been on my to-do list.


I decided that with this look, a nude lip would look best. I thought it made the look seem a lot more glam and really bring out the colours in the eye makeup,

On my lips, I used my favourite nude lipstick by TopShop called Secretary. I feel like this is the perfect nude for my skin shade and I can wear it with any look.

On my eyes I wanted to use a lot of purples and pinks. I used purple all over the lid and a light pink in the crease to blend that out. I also used a …

New Autumn/Winter Daily Makeup

Hello everybody! Welcome back to my blog! Once again... long time no see. 
Today I am going to be sharing with you what I do for my everyday makeup during Autumn and Winter. These next few months are my absolute favourites when it comes to makeup and fashion!

It's FINALLY the time to wear vampy lipstick shades and to change my eye makeup look... because we all know that I do the same eye makeup look all the time. BUT!! I've been wanting to change it up for a while.  Recently I've been trying brighter and bolder looks, but for every day I wanted something that was like a natural smokey eye. I used the Maybelline The Nudes palette, which I'm beginning to have a love-hate relationship with but that's another story. I used a light shimmery shade all over the lid and then the dark grey and black shades for the outer corner and to define the crease a bit more. 


Recently for my lipstick I've been liking reds and dark purples - because that's what autumn is all ab…
