How lipstick can transform a look!

Hello ma'lovelys, hope your all having a great day.
 Now I have never been one for bright lipsticks, in fact its only in the past year I've started wearing any lipstick at all (SHOCK HORROR).  But over the past couple of weeks, I've plucked up the courage to go bright! This how one simple lipstick can change the way you look.
 Without Lipstick.
With Lipstick.

Lipstick I was wearing - Christian Dior Rouge A Levres Lipstick 227

A few more snaps!
I hope you all liked this post,

Pink & Brown makeup look!

Hello ma'lovelys, hope you are all well. Today I will be showing you a pink and brown makeup look that I created this morning before heading out for a long walk in this gorgeous weather.
I started by using a moisturizer all over my face. I then applied my foundation with my real techniques buffing brush and then dusted some setting powder all over my face. Once applied I moved on to my eyebrows. I filled them into the shape desired and then started on my eyes.
 I applied a base of pink all over my lids. I added a more of brown pink to my crease. I then took a brighter pink and added it along my top lash line. I also put a tiny bit underneath my outer bottom lash line. I then lined my top and bottom lash line with jet black liquid liner. I did a cat eye flick and then added two coats of mascara.

 I decided to put two layers of concealer around my eye area and blended that in with the real techniques foundation brush. I then contoured my cheeks using my real techniques contour brush. I added a light peach blush to the apples of my cheeks and some highlighter across the top. To finish off the look I applied some lipstick.
The final look!
Hope you al liked my final look!

My Review of They're Real Mascara - The mascara that is beyond belief!

Hello ma'lovelys hope we are all well, todays post is going to be a review about a lovely Benefit product that I have been lusting over for a while.
The product is 'They're Real Mascara', I had heard many great reviews about this product and really wanted to try it out for myself, however being on a student budget there was a limit on how much I could spend on makeup products. So when I saw  Elle give a sample size in there latest magazine, I jumped at the chance and brought the magazine straight away. Benefit says its the mascara beyond belief and claims that it lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts & separates the lashes.
I applied 2 coats off this mascara and was really pleased with the results, as I normally have to add 3 coats and curl to get my desired look. The mascara is jet black and didn't leave me with any clumps at all. I felt the mascara really lengthened and volumized my lashes and my eyes looked very striking considering I didn't apply any eyeliner. I love the wand for this mascara, it really separates my lashes and the end is really handy for getting the stray outer and inner corners.


Overall I really happy with this product and think it is the best mascara I have found so far. As the UK's No.1 best-selling mascara I will definitely be purchasing the full size. They're Real can be brought for £19.50 from your local Benefit Counter or from most beauty shops.
Have you tried They're Real?

Foundation review! - No7 Beautifully Matte

Hello ma'lovelys, hope we are all well on this fine day. Its been a while since I did a foundation review, so I thought I'd share with you the one I have been constantly using recently. 
I first got this foundation over a year ago now, when a lovely lady from the No7 counter matched me up with the correct shade of foundation for my skin tone. The lady used the newly used technology matched made device, which takes 27 photographs of your skin on each side of your face and matches them correctly to find you perfect shade of foundation.
After being matched using the device I found out that I was the fairest shade in the range '43Calico' (DAMN you pale skin). Now that I had found my perfect shade, it was the tough decision on what foundation to go for. I knew that I wanted a liquid foundation which gave me the option of 8 different foundations to chose from:
No7 Protect & Perfect Foundation
No7 Restore & Renew Foundation
No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation
No7 Stay Perfect Liquid Foundation
No7 Essentially Natural Foundation
No7 Instant Radiance Foundation
No7 Intelligent Colour Foundation
No7 Lift & Luminate Foundation
A full coverage foundation was definitely on the cards as well, so the next step was to try some of them out.
In the end I chose the No7 Beautifully Matte foundation. This foundation is long lasting and has full coverage. It leaves a lovely matte finish which I love, and glides smoothly onto the skin.

Before foundation applied.
I used the Real Techniques Buffing Brush to blend the foundation into my skin.
After foundation applied.
Hope you all liked this review,

My birthday bank holiday weekend!

4th May 2013

Me: Nooo its only 10 more minutes.
Me: *checks facebook* damn nobody posted early.
Chris: Its not your birthday yet.
Me: *Turns around in a grump*
5th May 2013
Chris: Happy Birthday Babe!
*BIG hug and kiss*
A wonderful way to start my birthday :)
Hello ma'lovelys, today I will be sharing with you what I got up to for my birthday.
Before we get to my actual birthday... on Saturday my Grandma took me out shopping to buy me some clothes as my present. We wondered around ALL the shops and I didn't see anything that I particularly liked. After coming out of New Look with nothing I was disappointed. I decided to go back inside to have one last look. I'm so glad I did, found some gorgeous pieces.
Now back to the morning of my birthday. After my BIG hug and kiss, I soon fell asleep - I was knackered. I woke up about 9:30, I headed downstairs for a drink and was bombarded with hugs and singing from my two sisters.
After doing my hair and makeup I made my way downstairs to find a full cooked breakfast awaiting me. NOM NOM NOM!
I had a lovely day in the sun, went for a long walk with Chris. I just enjoyed the sunshine and the company.
Then in the afternoon I opened my cards and presents. Got some lovely gifts, so pleased with some of them.
A few of my birthday cards
Note purse
Nail vanish set
Bracelet from River Island
Necklace from Dorothy Perkins 
Yay finally got the Real Technique brush sets!
Core Collection
Starter Kit
Brush holder
Two Nails Inc polishes
Benefit Ultra Posh Lipgloss
Bare Minerals Lipgloss
Pretty Soap
No7 perfume
Matching bracelet and earrings
DKNY bag with new limited edition perfume.

My mum then brought in my cake, which my Grandma had made especially for me - I LOVE my Grandmas Chocolate Cake!
We then all sat down for a meal that my mum had made, Beef Wellington. It was so cute how she did the hearts.
After food, we call sat down and watched Sky Fall together. A lovely night at the end of a lovely day.
I had a great birthday and would like to thank my family and boyfriend for making it perfect.
Hope you enjoyed finding out about my birthday, feel free to comment :)
