Christmas Wishlist 2016.

I love making lists, so I thought a good way to start off blogmas this year would be with a Christmas Wishlist! I made one last year and a few of the items I luckily and gratefully received, but it’s been a whole year which means there have been a lot of new product releases as well as discoveries of older items which I am lusting over, so an entirely new list is necessary.

In last year’s wishlist I began being really specific and as I got further into my list it became more vague, so I will hopefully do better this year…

Halloween Blog Posts.

I love Halloween, but I cannot promote my Halloween blog posts all year round and there isn’t enough time around Halloween to post all the Halloween blog posts that I want to. As a result of this, I thought it would be nice to share some previous Halloween blog posts I have written which you may have missed.

Also, I would love it if you would leave in the comments links to your favourite Halloween blog posts on your own blog or someone else’s for me to have a little read!

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…

Lipstick Love: Halloween.

When I wrote my Lipstick Love post last week dedicated to autumnal lip shades, I realised that there are so many I adore that I would have to create another Lipstick Love post. This time I am focusing on Halloween and I’ve included shades that are on the darker end of the spectrum which would be ideal for both Halloween and autumn in general, as well as some more brighter and unusual shades which I would strictly use for Halloween.

Colourpop Lip Products.

A short while ago Colourpop were offering free international delivery over a certain spend for a limited time, so I jumped on this chance to make an order and bought a lovely handful of lip products. This includes their Lippie Stix, Ultra Satin Lip and Ultra Matte Lip and today I am going to share my thoughts on them now that I have had the opportunity to try them out.

Full Face Of: Soap and Glory.

With so many brands to choose from and a diverse range of products within each brand it is difficult to try everything, and sometimes remember what you have and haven’t tried and what you did and didn’t like. So,  I have decided to start a new feature on this blog, Full Face Of ___ in which I focus on a specific brand and explore a selection of their makeup. I haven’t yet decided on how frequently I am going to do these posts, possibly monthly, or every other month.

For this first post I have decided to test out some Soap and Glory makeup. I have wanted to venture into this brand for a while and earlier this year I found two products by this brand which I fell in love with. As a result of this, I have been keen to try out more of their products.

Summer Empties.

Over the summer I used up a lot of products, so this is going to be a mega empties post full of beauty, skincare, body care and also haircare. I am going to try not to ramble too much and keep things brief to prevent this post from being any longer than it needs to be, so let’s dive straight into my big pile of empties.

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…

Eyeshadow Palette Wishlist #2.

Approximately one year ago I created an Eyeshadow Palette Wishlist. Looking back on that wishlist a year later I realise that some of those palettes I do not even want anymore and one of them I in fact now own, therefore it is due an update.

In the past twelve months new palettes have been created and discovered and while my own collection has grown considerably this past year, I am always keen to make room for more beautiful palettes. Similar to the original post, I am going to share my five most wanted eyeshadow palettes and again it will be in no particular order.
