Soft Date Night Makeup

Hey everyone!

I went on a date the other night with my fiance, Kieron, and even though I wasn’t going to put much make up on, I used my new Revolution eye shadow palette and my new Revolution lip gloss.

I used my new E.L.F purchases for my face (you can read the post here) and set the make up with Rimmels Loose Powder in translucent. I used Revolution Duo Face Sculpt for the hollows of my cheeks, forehead and nose contouring. To highlight I used Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter  in Peach Lights.

For the eyes I used Revolution Flawless palette in 16G and I used the champagne colour on my lid and brow bone and a soft brown for my crease. I used Rimmel Scandal Eyes Curve Alert mascara (one of my favourites) and Soap and Glory Archery Brow for my eye brows.


For the lips I used the Revolution lip gloss from the ultra nude set, it was the middle shade.


I really liked this look as it was light and made me look a lot less tired as I’ve not been sleeping well recently. I’d like to set up a Youtube channel soon so I can film my tutorials! If you’d like to know how I did this look, comment below and I was make a post about it 🙂

Thanks for reading!


March Favourites

Welcome back to my second monthly favourites post! I know it’s a bit late but I really enjoy doing these so I’m not letting a silly illness stop me!!!! (COME AT ME, COLD!!)

First up on my favourites list is the Eucerin moisturiser I brought from Boots. I hadn’t read any review on his product or researched it, I just picked it up and hoped for the best. Since then I’ve used it religiously every morning. I really feel like it’s made a difference on my skin. It claims to give you clearer skin after 4 weeks and if I’m honest, I noticed a difference in mine after just 2 weeks.

My next favourite is the MUA loose powder. I brought this as I was looking for a cheap setting powder but after using it, I’m really impressed with it. It gives good coverage and a little really does go a long way!

Next is Avons Matte lipstick in Au Naturale. I’m in love with this lipstick as its long lasting and moisturising. I also find that it doesn’t really transfer.

I just recently brought the Lottie face brushes and they are probably some of the best brushes I’ve used and owned. The brushes that made it onto My favourites are the foundation brush,the powder brush and the contouring brush. The brushes are really soft and apply my makeup so well. I especially love how colourful they are!

Last but not least on my list is the Revolution highlighter. A little goes a long way with this product and it is really long lasting! I love it so much!

Makeup for work days!

I don’t know about you guys but I’m never up early enough to do a full face of makeup for work, I just love my sleep way too much!. So now, I have come up with a routine that is quick and has me looking presentable.


First off after my skincare routine (I always make time for that) I apply a primer. This will help keep my skin hydrated, keep my makeup looking good, help it last longer and help fill in my cavernous pores.

After my primer has dried (this is sped up by fanning my face frantically) I then apply my foundation. Depending on my skin and its current condition, I will choose anything from a tinted cream to a regular foundation.


Next I’ll conceal my dark circles and any other horrific mark on my face. This is blended with a beauty blender. Please excuse the concealer palette, I’d clean it but it’ll only get messy again as I use it pretty much everyday!

I don’t usually bother with contouring when I go to work as I never have the time, so instead I’ll apply a bit of bronzer all over my face to give me a healthy glow and keep me from looking like something out of the Living Dead. After I’ll apply my favourite blush and finish off with a dab of highlighter under my eyes, cheekbones, forehead, bridge of my nose, Cupid’s bow and chin.


Next up I’ll do my eyebrows. If I have time to spare, I’ll use a brow palette and a brow defining gel. If not then I’ll just use the brow defining gel.


Mascara comes next. I’ll apply a few coats to boost the volume of my lashes and if I have enough time I’ll add some eyeliner. I never use false lashes for work as they take forever for me to put on!


Lastly I’ll finish off with a soft shade of lipstick or a lip balm to brighten up my face.

If I really am running late then I’ll skip the bronzer, blush  and highlighter and do it when I’m at work as it only takes a few minutes 🙂
