Day to Night Makeup | Christmas.

Day to Night Christmas Party Makeup.jpg

With Christmas around the corner I have been itching to try out some festive make up looks and I was quickly inspired by Vegas.com to create something bold and sparkly. In today’s post I am going to be transitioning a neutral makeup look from day to night, so that no matter the time of day, or what you’re doing, you can be Vegas ready with a festive spin, so whether your Christmas parties are in Vegas or not, hopefully it’s a makeup look we can all wear.

Orange Eyes and Dark Lips | Halloween.

IMG_1484.JPG

I love Halloween and while I’m not a big fan of dressing up and costumes, I do love applying makeup. As a result, over the weekend I did some experimenting with makeup to create this Halloween inspired look.

When I think of Halloween, several shocking colours come to mind including bright oranges and deep, dark purples, so those are the colours I focused on incorporating into this look. I had recently bought an orange liquid eyeliner with Halloween in mind and I have an abundance of purple toned lipsticks, so it was no mystery what way round the orange and purple would go…

Autumnal Makeup | Collab.

Back in spring I did a beauty collaboration with Chanelle from Chanelle Hayley. Because Chanelle lives in New Zealand, she created an autumnal makeup look and I created a spring look, so now that it’s autumn here in the UK, we decided to do the reverse.

For my autumnal look I have gone for a matte neutral brown eye with matte berry lips and to achieve this look I used the newly released Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics eyeshadow palette. I haven’t had the opportunity to experiment with it a whole lot since receiving it, but thus far I am loving it.

Cotswold Wildlife Park & GRWM.

Earlier this week I went to Cotswold Wildlife Park to celebrate one of my best friends’ birthday. Since I took the day off from work to do this, it meant that I had the morning to take my time getting ready and I could put a bit more effort into my hair and makeup than I usually would during the week. Because of this, I decided that I would film it and make it a Get Ready With Me.

MOTD: September 2016.

MOTD_ September 2016.jpg

I haven’t done a Makeup Of The Day post in ever so long and now that we’re getting into Autumn I feel that there is no better time. Autumn is the season full of my favourite kinds of makeup looks; gold/bronze/copper eyes and dark nudes and berry lips.

Since we’re still only in that little transitional period between Summer and Autumn right now, I haven’t started going full on with my dark and bright shades of red and purple toned lipsticks just yet. However, I have recently discovered this gorgeous brown-y nude shade that everyone has been donning lately with the 90s trend and I have finally jumped on that bandwagon and love it. However, details on this lipstick will come later…

Spring Makeup | Collab.

“Spring was moving in the air above and in the earth below and around him, penetrating even his dark and lowly little house with its spirit of divine discontent and longing.” – Kenneth Grahame.

Day two of Collab Week (which you can hear more about here) features fellow beauty blogger Chanelle. Chanelle lives in New Zealand and I live in the UK which means that we are currently experiencing different seasons. While for me it is Spring, for Chanelle it is Autumn, so we decided to work together on each creating a Spring and Autumnal makeup look respectively. As a result, no matter which side of the world you’re on there is hopefully something to suit your current season.

Everyday Spring Makeup.

“What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again.” – Suzanne Collins.

In case you haven’t yet noticed, I have been getting very into all things Spring recently. I have changed my blog header, I have created my Spring Makeup Wishlist and I concluded Winter with my Winter Empties.

So far this season I have really been getting into sparkly pink eyeshadows. I have never explored this area of eyeshadow before, I mean I don’t even like the colour pink, but for some reason I have really been loving the light pink eyes recently.

Concert Makeup Look.

“Music is a total constant. That’s why we have such a strong visceral connection to it, you know? Because a song can take you back instantly to a moment, or a place, or even a person. No matter what else has changed in your or the world, that one song says the same, just like that moment.” – Sarah Dessen.
