That’s my story & I’m sticking to it! I’ve been pretty good for most of the year, after my birthday in January I mainly bought small bits of make-up or the essentials to keep my skin ticking over. I can’t do without my skincare so getting new make-up didn’t seem as important, it wasn’t like I’d run out of anything! However for a few months I saved up to have one big crazy spend which I’m now hauling for you. Continue reading “A Huge Haul – A Bit Of Everything!”
I feel like this could be the most non-spring look possible. I feel like I get away with it because it’s very pink! Not your every day pastels or sheer lip colours but something in your face & unapologetic. I guess most would wear this as a night time look but I did this in the day time & loved it. Strong eyes & strong lips complemented each other because my pale skin looked a little stark with just the eye make-up on. Either way let’s get down to how I put this one together, the base isn’t included as I did a very recent post on My Spring & Summer Foundation Routine.
When I enter any shop that sells make-up I always leave with foundation on the back of my hand. Expensive or not whatever budget I’m on I like to test them & compare shades. I like to research them on Youtube to see what people think & make sure to listen for their skin type too. It’s a bit of a mine field when it comes to foundation so these are my tips & tricks to getting the right product without hopefully wasting money.
This whole What’s in my hand bag posts are a favourite of mine to read but I don’t own any designer bag or many carry interesting things. I feel like the odd blogger out as I have no portable charger for an iPhone as my Htc One doesn’t die that often. I own two handbag style bags of which I rarely use. One a Vans Hobo Bag for nights out & my DC luggage bag for overnight stays. My main bag is another Vans one, a cross body bag which until I find something I like more will be sticking around. My sister is hoping I find something new so she can help to take it off my hands! It’s been two years of searching & still nothing beyond my wildest dreams of a Marc Jacob bag have turned into a purchase.
2014 is almost over. We can all look back to our best or worst memories of the last year and see that we made it to the end of it. For beauty bloggers it means seeing what make up we loved the most & what spring cleaning is needed as we head into 2015. I know make-up in it’s very basic form is superficial. What it means to me is a form of expression, what mood I’m in that day or the mood I want to be in. These are the beauty bits that have got me through the hot days & long nights.
