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.

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…

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.

IMG_1399.JPG

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.

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.

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…

Lipstick Love: Work Edition.

Lipstick Love Work Edition.jpg

Lipstick Love is a feature on this blog in which I share with you all my love of lipstick by showing you my favourites. Technically, these aren’t all lipsticks, some may be lip glosses, for example, but they will all be lip products which I love. This was a fortnightly series back in January and February, so if you missed my previous posts they can all be found here.

I work in an office and I start work at 6 am, so nude lipsticks are a must. I mean, it would look a bit alarming and over the top to walk into the office at that time in the morning with a bright lipstick, right? On the other hand, I don’t want my lips to be bare! When I started this job I quickly learnt that not just any nude lipstick will do either, it needs to be moisturising because the air is quite dry. So, here are my top five favourite lipsticks to wear to work:

June Favourites 2016.

June Favourites 2016.jpg

I have been doing favourites posts for a whole year now, which means I need to start putting years in the titles so that posts don’t get mixed up, ha. This also means that I have been blogging about beauty for approximately a year now; time just goes so fast. Enough of that though, let’s get into my favourites for this month:
