Soft Smoky Prom Make up

Hey guys, welcome to my blog!

Today I have another make up post for you! Now this look doesn’t have to be used only for prom, it’s quite a wearable look and can really be worn for any occasion.

The beautiful model/prom goer is my younger sister Emily (Emmimori) and I was honoured when she passed the chance to have a makeup artist and hair dressed hired to do her hair and make up, but asked me instead! So I did my best and I think she looked absolutely beautiful.

I wanted to do a softer look as her dress was quite bright and I didn’t want to make it too much or take anything away from the dress so I kept it simple but elegant.

Here are the cosmetics I used for the make up look:

Face:

NYX Studio Perfect Photo Loving Primer

Kiko Skin Tone Foundation

Seventeen 18 hour concealer

Seventeen phwoar paint

Rimmel Loose Powder

Sleek  Contour Palette (blush included)

NYX Illuminator (ritualistic)

Eyes:

W7 In the Buff Palette

Barry M Eye Shine shadow and glaze Palette

Bourjois Liner Feutre (in black)

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Curve Alert Mascara (in black)

Rimmel Wake me up Waterproof Mascara (in black)

Soap and Glory Archery Brow

Lips:

Clinique Colour Pop (in beige pop)

I kept the make up very minimal and as both of the palettes don’t name their shades, if you want to know what shades I used comment below and I will take photos for you all 🙂

#2 My Weekend Haul

So I didn’t post last week and I have a very good explanation as to why! I had been at my parents all week as it was my birthday and I completely forgot to bring my laptop with me to post!!

But don’t worry, I used that time away from my blog to brain storm and jot down some new ideas!

So anyways, back to the post. After going out on the weekend (You can read the post here), I had a mini shopping haul at Superdrug and Tesco which I thought I would share with you all!

I’ll start with skincare first as that is pretty much the majority of my haul. I’m obsessed with skincare, even more so now I’m getting older! When I was younger (16/17) I don’t even think I moisturised! Whilst browsing Superdrug, I came across their Vitamin E range, which I honestly never even knew existed. So I decided I’d get some of the collection and came away with Their moisture boost serum, nourishing eye cream, hydrating mist, leave on moisture mask and the  night cream. I’m so excited it all! I’ve tested a few of the bits and can safely say I’m in love with the hydrating mist.

Next up I saw that Garnier had some new moisturisers that were 1/3 off. There was a choice between honey, rose water and aloe vera. I absolutely love aloe vera so I decided to give it a whirl. What persuaded me to buy it was the fact that 96% of the ingredients are of natural origin with the last 4% being for preservation. I have tried this a few times and love it.

I don’t usually buy nail polish but decided I’d make a change and start so I can practice doing my nails more. I asked my Fiance to pick a colour and he decided on this lovely coral colour from Barry M. It’s from their Coconut Infusion line and, oh my God, there were so many pretty colours! I also got a base coat/top coat as mine dried up a while ago.

The Last product I got from Superdrug was medical tape. Need I explain more? who doesn’t have tape in their make up kits? 😛

From Tesco I brought the Aloe Body Gel. I got badly sunburnt on my birthday and needed something to soothe the stinging, burning, itching and peeling and decided to give this a go as it said it moisturises calms and repairs. I  brought the one at first and took it home and I loved it so much I went out the next day to get a bottle. It is honestly the best body moisturiser I’ve ever used!!

So that’s it guys!! I hope you’ve enjoyed my mini haul!

Nail Polish for Valentines <3

Hi all!

So my mum came to me yesterday and asked if she could borrow a nail polish for valentines day. I got out my collection and we went through it together picking out colours that would suit the occasion. We ended up with 6 different colours to choose from, so I figured I’d share them with you all!

In all there were six different colours and none of them were really the same either! They ranged from pretty pinks to a smoky petrol colour.

First up is Rimmels 60 second in Princess Pink. This is a soft elegant shade of pink and suits those who like the delicate sorts of colours. It does what it says and dries fast. I was absolutely obsessed with this polish when I first got it as it was perfect to wear everyday!

Next up is the same brand, but in Rapid Beauty. This is such a gorgeous and romantic shade of red and I’d say its got more of a wine shade to it. I love wearing this on nights out as I can match it to any outfit :).

Next on my list  is a polish by Barry M. I absolutely love this brand and I have so many different colours! This one doesn’t actually have a name for the shade, but it’s one of the textured types. The colour may look similar to the Princess Pink by Rimmel but this shade is more pink whereas the Princess Pink has a peachy undertone to it. I love this nail polish, when I first got it, i didn’t realise I had brought a textured one so was quite shocked when it dried. But after I realised, I quite liked the look and feel of the texture to it.

Another Barry M Shade I have is called Duchess and I would have to say that it is my all-time favorite nail polish. Its the most gorgeous glittery brown colour I have ever seen and when it dried textured (it’s another from the textured effect line) it felt like I had lots of tiny gems on my nails. When I glossed it over, it was so glittery I received quite a few compliments on it. I would recommend this polish to anyone and everyone! It’s perfect for every occasion, especially Valentines day.

Next up is a polish by a brand called Yes Love. I’ve never heard of this brand and I brought it when I was out in Majorca. When it is applied, glossed over and the light hits it, its the most incredible petrol colour with a hint of red. The perfect sort of colour for those who prefer darker shades. This colour doesn’t have a name, but I’d be more than happy to find out more about it if anyone would like to know 🙂

Last but not least, I have a high end nail polish. This one is by Lancome, and again like the previous polish, this one doesn’t have a name but I would be more than happy to look into it if anyone would like to know. This is another shade of pink, but more of a hot pink and is absolutely lovely! It applies really well and when glossed over, looks absolutely fantastic! This colour is perfect for those who prefer bolder shades.

Much love,
