This Stila Glitter Liner is AMAZING and seriously does not budge or transfer.

Make Up Bag Essentials Part 2…

Hey Everyone!

So after completing my part 1 of the top essentials to have in your make up bag, NOW we move onto the second round :). This will include my favourite options for blusher, bronzer, highlighters and eyeliners!

If you select a product from each section in this post and my first post, you should have a pretty versatile make up kit which will see you through day time make up looks and it’s the kind of kit that’s perfect for someone just starting out with make up!

Let’s crack on with my favourite selection of…

BLUSHERS – 

blusher

My first few blushes were actually MAC blushes, my favourites first of all were Mocha which is a dark browny pink which is very flattering…and MAC Dainty which is a mineralize blush with speckles of gold shimmer in it!

MAC blushes are quite pricey, so if you are looking for something versatile and a reasonable price you could try some of the Max Factor blushes, such as the Creme Puff powder blushes. If you’re a bit braver you could try the Max Factor cream blushes, which actually are really easy to use and last a really long time! The picture above shows you my favourite ever blush – the Tarte Amazonian Clay blush is beautiful – completely matte, easily buildable and the most flattering pink you will ever find!

BRONZERS – 

My ultimate favourite bronzer is the NARS Laguna, which is pretty much a cult beauty blogger staple! However, if you are just starting out and are low on cash there are some great similar colour matches and alternatives. Be careful with bronzer colours that are too warm – these can look a bit too obvious on the face, so it might be easier to start with a cooler toned bronzer first :).

For drugstore alternatives, you could try the Benefit Hoola Bronzer, which is one of the bronzers I tried when I first started out with Benefit products. It’s not too cool and not too warm, a light dusting of this over your hairline is a great way to bronze your face up in a subtle way.

Bourjois do an amazing bronzer which actually smells like chocolate! This is a brilliant bronzer to start off with, but if you are still a little scared of it you could opt for a bronze and blush combo where you can swirl both colours together lightly and use this just on the apples of the cheeks, like the Maybelline Dream Sun. 

HIGHLIGHTERS – 

I’d definitely advise that you try different texture highlighters such as creams and powders, so you know which type you like. My suggestion for you highlighter virgins out there is the Benefit Girl Meets Pearl, which is a nice easy twist up cream highlight. This is so easy to dab along the cheekbones and you can even use this with a little brush to apply on your brow arch too to create a lovely chic highlight.

However, I can’t leave out the MAC holy grail which is Soft & Gentle. This highlighter is the perfect irridescent gold, it’s a really finely milled powder which is great to dust on the high points of your face.

EYELINERS – 

Last but not least, we move onto eyeliners! So I’d advise that kohl eyeliners are the easiest way to add some definition to your lash line – you can add a thin line along your upper or lower lash line (in the outer third) and use a small eyeshadow brush to blend this out. This is a great way to create a simple smokey eye! I love using the Bourjois Colorband Pencil which is a great value product.

For liquid eyeliner, I started out with the usual Barry M liquid liners, Soap & Glory and then L’Oréal Superliner. The liquid eyeliner I’m obsessing over at the moment is the Maybelline Master Ink Matte Eyeliner, which is A M A Z I N G!!! It is as it says, completely matte, which makes it a brilliantly black formula!

WOW that was a long post (sorry if you fell asleep half way through lol!)

I hope you enjoyed it, if you have any make up suggestions for me, let me know in the comments!

Love you all!

Maybelline Master Ink Liquid Eyeliners

Hello everyone!

I was on the hunt for a new liquid eyeliner after using up my current one. I was in Boots and walked past the Maybelline counter…picking up a trusty Lash Sensational, the Master Ink eyeliners caught my eye.

I was looking for a good, pigmented eyeliner and I was pleased to see they had a Matte eyeliner AND a black gold glitter one which was perfect for the make up I planned to do at my work Xmas do!

These sounded and looked so great, I was hopeful that they would live up to my expectations. The matte liner is wet and fabulously pigmented. With a matte liner, I was worried that it would end up looking a bit ashy but it doesn’t in the slightest. It’s not the most hard wearing eyeliner but if you leave it alone while it dries it lasts well enough.

The nib is very thin and easy to manipulate – doing a cat flick isn’t the easiest thing but practice will make perfect! That’s what I’m telling myself anyway…

The glitter eyeliner is lovely because it’s not just gold glitter – it’s black gold so you can use this on it’s own! I love the way this looks – the glitter is a slightly yellowy gold but it’s really beautiful. It adds just the right amount of sparkle and shimmer across the lid!

Here is a swatch of both of them side by side:

The black gold one is my favourite for special occasions but the matte version is still perfect for everyday!

I’m so chuffed with these and I think I’ll be repurchasing the matte one 🙂

I hope you’re all having a great Christmas so far!

Keep your eyes peeled for the third week of my Body Shop Advent Calendar!

Thanks for reading everyone,

Born Pretty Store – The perfect place to get beauty bargains!

Hello Everyone!

***Keep reading for an exclusive 10% discount code!!!***

So, a while ago I was approached by the website Born Pretty Store, who kindly sent me some items that I will be reviewing here! It’s mainly beauty items that they sell, but they do everything from make up brushes, to temporary tattoos, eyeshadows and eyeliners!

One thing I want to make clear right away, is that I beg you PLEASE don’t judge this website on what it looks like. OK, yes it is all in dollars, yes they are Chinese run but I have to say I was really impressed with the service and the products themselves.

I’m going to be honest here and say that whenever I get emails asking me if I want to review products I am always sceptical at the beginning…but I had no need to be with this store as I actually love the products that I received and would definitely buy them myself in future! (Also the lady that emailed me was so lovely and adorable it made me smile 🙂)

The item that I tried first of all was a liquid eyeliner. I have tried a few different eyeliners but I am very fussy, so I pretty much always stuck with my L’Oréal Superliner which is really pigmented but can be quite tough to remove. I was attracted to this eyeliner because of the NIB. Anyone who loves using liquid eyeliner knows how important the NIB is.

Here is what the ‘Extremely Thin Eyeliner Pen’ looks like:

For only $4.07, I have to say I was SO impressed with this eyeliner. The nib is firm but soft at the tip (stop sniggering in the back there) and the liquid is JET black. It is quite liquid-y though so when I watched this on my hand it bled into the lines of my skin. See below:

When I applied this along my lash line I didn’t see any of the colour bleeding – the liquid was so smooth and pigmented, and the nib made it really easy to start with a thin line. It is actually really easy to thicken the line too if you need it, to top it off creating a flick was easy as can be!

I wore this to work, so to see whether it lasted all day I took a ‘Just After Application’ photo and ‘End of The Day’ photo:

BEFORE AND A

On the whole I was really impressed with the staying power of this – think about it, the product is only $4, the formula is quite thin and yet it lasted all day without smudging.

Most excitingly, I have a 10% discount code if you want to place an order. I’ll tell you why you I think you should consider giving Born Pretty Store a browse:

  • FREE SHIPPING worldwide
