Lippy Love

Image
There used to be a time in my life where I didn't wear lipstick. I didn't like the way it felt and I thought it just didn't look right one me.

Fast forward a few years and I have a huge collection! Lipsticks, lip glossed, liquids, lattes, shines. You name it I have it. I love different colours too, my favourites are pinks, nudes and reds. I am always on the search for the best lipstick, the one that will stay on no matter what, if I drink, eat or kiss I want it to stay on. My problem is I am a lip licker, I can't not do it, so it tends to take lipsticks off, but one day I will find that one that doesn't come off.

Anyway back to my love! I want to show you my current faves lipsticks, these are ones I use all the time and ones I cant do without.

From Maisie Brush Review

Image
Like most people I am obsessed with unicorns. I love them, I have pjs with unicorns on, my screen saver is a unicron, I have a unicorn jewellery plate, slippers, t-shirts, bags, teddies (yes I am 29 years old) you name it I probably have it. So when I saw a make up brush in the shape of a unicorn horn I HAD to have it.
The company From Maisie was started by a lovely lady called Emma and her husband James, it truly is a family affair since the brand is named after their daughter, which I think is just adorable. Not only do they sell unicorn shaped make up brushes but they also sell mermaid tail shaped brushed too. So all you mermaid lovers you know where to go (the do also sell normal shaped brushes, in case for some strange reason you didn't like unicorns or mermaids). The company is still a baby, starting in September 2017 but is already very popular and it isn't hard to see why.


I first saw the company on Instagram and fell in love, they are amazing brushes and when I got th…

Essentially Sleek Review

Image
Who doesn't love a good bargain? I know I do. When that bargain is on make up it makes me even happier. So when I saw boots were giving away a gift when you spend over £12 on Sleek make up I was all over it.
I bought the Cleopatra's Kiss Highlighting Palette which I have wanted since I saw Rachel from Rachel Leary use it in one of her videos and it gave her such an amazing glow. I also bought the VIP Lipstick in Dream Decade which is the most amazing pink I love it.
The free gift was the Essentially Sleek collection, which has the VIP lipstick in Show off, Dip It Eyeliner in Black and a mini All Night Long i-Divine Palette.
So confession time, before this purchase I had never used Sleek make up before. So this review will be a totally honest first impression. 
I normally have a very bad time with lipsticks, I am a lip licker, I am always licking my lips so I can never find a lipstick that stays on. Sadly the VIP lipstick is no different, I found the colour lasted about 2ish hour…

Favourite Make up

Image
I love make up, I alwayshave and I always will. I love how I feel when I have it on, the colours and putting it on as well. So picking some of my favourite items was a little hard, I thought since I wear make up everyday for work that instead of going through all the palette's I wear when I'm not at work, I would pick from my day to day make up that I use.

First is a lovely bargain from everyones favourite place Primark, this sweet little palette is there Nudes Collection it is meant to be the dupe of the Urban Decay Naked palette, although I don't know for myself as I don't own it. I love the colours in this, they are so good for everyday and you do get some good pigmentation from them.




The first colour which is the white, is so good for an inner corner highlight, it looks matte in the picture but it isn't. As you can tell my favourite colour is the 'Café Crème' (from the indentation haha) it is so nice I love it. One a daily basis I will use the brown tone…

My Daily Make Up

Hi Lovelies


I am a make up addict .... phew that came out very easy. Thankfully due to my new job where I wear make up everyday I get to buy even more and enjoy it so much more then I did before.


So I thought I would show you all what I do for my daily make up routine. This is for everyday wear so I don't tend to go OTT or anything, its just a very basic make up look for work, but if you would like me to do a post based on what I wear on days off, just comment below and I will do.


I have been trying out this look for a while now so I am able to do it in about 10ish minutes so if I am running late I know I can still pop this on and go. That being said I would like to add that in no way shape or form am I a make up artist, I do not do make up for other people I do it for me because I love it, I am not saying the way I do it is right, I just want to show you what works for me, so this is what I do.


After I have done my skin care routine in the morning I put on my primer which is the Co…

The Power of Make Up

Image
Hi Guys

Hope you're all ok

I have been having a little break from my blog but I'm back and here to stay.

This post is based on a youtube video I recently watched by Becca Rose. She is one of my favourite youtubers and I am a bit obsessed with her channel. A few weeks ago she filmed a video about the power of make up, she had gotten the idea from another youtuber (Nikki Tutorials). (To watch their videos please click the links below)

Nikki Tutorial 

 The video is all about how women are seen by some men as being fake when they wear make up. There has been a number of memes and pictures flying around social media like this :












Which is aimed at other men, telling them to take girls out on a first date to a swimming baths so they can see their true faces. 
There has even been a story in the media (although I am not sure how reliable it is) that a man was sueing his wife for mental damages after seeing her with no make up on the day after they got married
