Festive Glitter


When Christmas time comes around, everyone starts feeling festive! It’s time to break out the glitter and even though I don’t celebrate Christmas, I enjoy glitter! The easiest way to incorporate it into your makeup, is by using eye liner! Take a look at some of my favourite picks:

I’ve tried to include as many different colours as I can! These shades are definitely my favourite and ones that I use all of the time!

20131217-154241.jpg
* Collection Eyeshadow Pencil in ‘Denim Diva’
This isn’t even meant to be an eyeliner but I love drawing a line on my lash line and blending it out! It’s a beautiful cold blue colour with a lighter blue glitter running through it. It has amazing longevity and looks amazing with any eye colour.. It’s a super festive colour, too!

20131217-154248.jpg
* KIKO Super Colour Eyeliner in ‘110’
I go on about these eyeliners a lot but I truly love them! This shade is a beautiful purple colour with glitter running through it! I love using these on my too lash line and also smudging them under my eye too! It’s a gorgeous deep purple and is really long lasting.. As the name suggests!

* KIKO Super Colour Eyeliner in ‘102’
For the same reasons above, I love this eyeliner too! Because it’s a liquid, you can get real precision and the brush is immaculate for drawing on the eyes! This brown is a gorgeous rich brown and perfect for those people who want to try something other than black! It has a gold glitter running through it and often looks like a copper colour in some lights.

*AVON Supershock Gel Eyeliner in ‘Blackberry’
I’ve loved this colour for years and I can never get ahold of another pencil in this shade so sparingly use this one! This is a fantastic deep burgundy with a red glitter running through it and although the colour initially sounds scary, it looks amazing! This is another one for those of us who are used to black eyeliner.. It makes a gorgeous change to wearing black because of its subtlety! It’s really long lasting and creamy, too!

20131217-154309.jpg
* Barry M Kohl Pencil in ’10’
I bought these recently and have already got so much use of them! This gold colour is definitely one of my favourite! One that would look great on darker skin tones but suits anyone! These are creamy and long lasting and add a gorgeous pop of colour without looking too OTT! I love applying a black eyeliner and then this on top, on my waterline which gives me eyes definition and a pop of colour at the same time!

20131217-154317.jpg
* KIKO Perfect Eyes Duo Highlighter Pencil
This pencil is actually meant to be used on the brow bone one as a highlighter pencil but I love using this on my inner corner, cheekbones and even on my eyelid as an all over colour! This trick is great for those people who don’t wear eyeliner but still want a subtle shimmer! Just dab this on the areas of your eyes where you want some brightness and rock!

20131217-154323.jpg
* INIKA Certified Organic Eyeliner in Green Lagoon
It’s not often I whip out this colour because I’m not usually a fan of frosty colour but this green definitely gets my blood pumping in Winter! It’s a beautiful aqua shade which has a mega frosty finish! It’s not the smoothest pencil but after warming it up with a hair dryer or in my hands, it’s fairly easy to use and I love applying this with a black on my waterline or just above my black winged eyeliner for a pop of colour on my eyelid!

My Top: Autumn Lipsticks


Autumn is all about dark and deep shades and there’s no better statement than to add that dark look on your lips! I love dark lips but am not always brave enough to rock them.. My mum however LOVES them on me! So don’t be afraid to ask other people’s opinions on how it looks on you, you might be surprised what they think!

Ted Baker Make Up


20131111-203925.jpg

In the UK, Boots are really well known for their Christmas sales and the products they release from tonnes of brands for the festive season! I recently popped in there and saw Ted Baker make up kits, which is completely new for me to use! I wanted to try it because Ted Baker is a high end brand, so I grabbed this kit.. Have a look..

The Great and the Gorgeous Cosmetic Gift Set – £40 (they have now put up the price)
The kit came in at £19 (I was so chuffed at the affordable price but they still have it in their ‘3 for 2’ sale). As always with Ted Baker, the packaging is incredible and the products inside are made of good quality!

The kit comes with: a bronzing compact, lipstick crayons, eye liner, shimmer eye creams, eye glitter, false eyelashes and glue, nail polishes, illuminating liquids and cosmetic brushes! Tonnes of products!

The swatches of the products show the quality of the makeup! It really is worth it!
The colours are autumn happy and I just love the idea of carrying around that rose gold compact!

The brushes are MAC quality.. Seriously! I love the lip crayon shades which are super moisturising and pigmented AND.. All the nail varnishes and highlighting (illuminating) pots, are crazy beautiful! The eyeliner is pigmented and long lasting and the other eye make up (lashes, glitter and cream shadow), are so natural and easy to wear!

Quick Haul.. And tea!


I had planned an afternoon tea with my cousin for quite some time and we had a lovely feast followed by a nice day of shopping! I got some really nice bits so thought I’d show you! Of course we had afternoon tea! At the Knightsbridge Berkeley Hotel! It was LOVELY! Look how cute..

Spring time colour.. PINK!


20130422-120317.jpg

I blogged last year about my love for purple make up (and everything else) especially because it looks universally good on anyone and at any time of the year! But this year for me, it’s been all about PINK! Can you blame me?? I’m a girl after all!

Here are some of my favourite pink picks from my collection!

November favourites!


20121203-170410.jpg

With the wedding almost here, I’ve been rocking the ‘no make up’ look to ensure my skin stays clear and that we stay like friends until the big day! Because you can’t cheat a massive zit the size of Everest on your forehead! However, when I have been wearing make up, these are my favourites from last month!

By the way.. I’VE BEEN LOVING EYESHADOW! I’ve been experimenting with different colours and textures a lot this month and have been rocking dark and bright lips too!! Go me! Woo!

The first favourite has to be the L’oreal Lumi Magique primer! This is a lightweight luminescent primer which has an amazing shine! I must say I don’t think it makes my make up last longer but when I wear it beneath my foundation around the centre of my face and when I use it as a highlighter it looks fantastic and lasts all day! It’s a really good size as I’ve had it for months and used it loads and still hasn’t died on me!

20121203-170339.jpg
L’oreal Lumi Magique Primer £9.99

The next big thing for me has been mascara which I think is a staple for most women! When you have those days when you don’t want to wear make up but don’t want to look like you’ve rolled out of bed, mascara is your saviour! My favourite has been Collections Super Size Fake Lash which is brilliant! I have to say, I bought this towards the summer time and opened it so that the liquid would dry out a little because it was too runny! But, now I love it! The brush is a perfect size and I love the way it makes my lashes look! Doesn’t break the bank either.. TRIPLE BONUS!

20121203-170331.jpg
Collection SuperSize lash £2.99

Another good one for November was my Deluxe Crease Brush from Samantha Chapman’s Real Techniques range! It’s fantastic for concealer! Perhaps not so much for the crease as the name suggests! It’s the perfect size for underneath your eyes and to cover up blemishes and is just the correct thickness! It comes in a set with other brushes which are fairly decent.. But that’s a whole mother blog post! All in all, SUPERB!

20121203-170348.jpg
Real Techniques Starter Set £21.99

In coalition with the brush is the Soap and Glory Kick Ass Concealer which I featured in a haul past back in summer! The pot comes with a three step system!
1.) Concealer for brightening under eye area
2.) Concealer for your face
3.) A translucent lightweight powder!
I always mix the two concealers together because the salmon coloured one is almost like a corrector! The brightening one is the perfect shade! They are quite thick and creamy concealers but feel fantastic and used with the Deluxe Crease Brush, they last all day!

20121203-170352.jpg
Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer in medium £10.00

The next favourite has to be a lipstick! And not only that but a MAC lipstick! I love this colour called Dubonnet which is an amplified finish which I think is perfect for the winter! It’s not quite a brown, not red but isn’t maroon either! It looks gorgeous on any skin tone and I love it more than anything else this month! The texture is so creamy and it wears off beautifully too! No crusty lips for me thanks!

20121203-170326.jpg
MAC Dubonnet (amplified finish) £12.60

When I have been wearing foundation it’s MAC MatchMaster which I use in shade 1.0 (the lightest shade). It’s a fantastic medium coverage foundation which is most definitely build able! I love using this because it actually matches in with your skin colour (as the name suggests). It’s lovely and brightening, not drying and comes in a massive bottle! Hooray for MAC!!

20121203-170343.jpg
MAC MatchMaster foundation in shade 1.0 £22.50

As I mentioned, I’ve been loving the eye bling and there’s no other thing is turn to other than my Sleek make up palettes! I’ve loved using every single colour in this palette called Storm! I’ve created looks for day and night from this handy little bundle of joy! It has a lot of shimmers in it but the colours are fantastic! They are extremely pigmented and the palette costs just £7.99 for a palette with 12 colours in! You can use the colours for your brows too!

September non/ beauty favourites


So I recently done my beauty favourites of September and thought I’d stir the waters by doing a non beauty favourites post!!! All about the things I like or have enjoyed doing during the month is August!

Lets start with.. SURPRISES!!! So as some of you may have read, I had a lovely cousin of mine come round and seen as ill be moving away soon after getting married, I wanted to make her stay special! I loved giving her surprises throughout the day and seeing her reaction on the things I had planned! I done a double whammy by surprising my mum along with her though :) surprising people with gifts, favours or good is definitely a favourite of mine that I will continue to do!

20121003-194014.jpg

Favourite place of the month has to go to the Millennium Dome! It’s now Valle the o2 Arena but was built in the year 2000 as a mark of the new millennium! It took years to build and is right on the edge of the River Thames in Central London! I am from London, live in London and LOVE London but had never been! So I had such a good time when I went there for the first time last week! I loved the rather, atmosphere and the beautiful scenery! If you live in the UK, definitely check out all the offers that are available for the shows in the o2 because its definitely worth it.

20121003-193922.jpg

Next has to be a favourite food! What have I loved eating??? Has to be donuts! I’ve got an obsession with them! I’ve loved munching through the icing and sprinkles to a chewy soft centre! In fact, ill be doing a blog post on how to make your own donuts soon!

20121003-193842.jpg

The next favourite is a piece of clothing! For me, this has to be the new flatforms that have come into fashion recently! I recently bought a pair from River Island and will be purchasing more as time goes on because they are SO comfy! Just be careful, because of their shape, they can hurt the ball of your foot if you stand for too long!

20121003-193935.jpg

Next favourite.. I don’t a blog post on it too! GLASSES AND HIJAB! I’ve loved this new look and I’m SOOOOO going to be wearing this to death this winter! If like me, the prescription of your lenses is quite high and your glasses make your eyes look small, order some clear lens glasses and wear with contacts for a bold fashion statement! ASOS have some great pairs that I’ve bought recently!

20121003-193928.jpg

Last but not least, my favourite interior decorating item is candles! The colder months have arrived and there’s nothing I love more than lighting a massive candle and eating some yummy good! I’m loving angle ornaments too! This tea light holder I got from TK Maxx and I would recommend keeping your eyes peeled with their products because I’ve been visiting there more and more often!

September favourites


Of course! As always I love to share my monthly favourites! September seemed like the longest month of the whole year which was really good because for once, it wasn’t too cloudy and wet in good old London!

I’m looking forward to autumn though! And seen as i’ll be wedding planning throughout the colder months, I’m not worried about the weather! I’m rather excited about spending the last few months in London with people who I care about and who make me happy :)

The first beauty favourite of the month has to be Smashbox Tinted moisturiser! I bought this recently and I know I haven’t used it ALL month but I LOVE IT! It’s the perfect amount of coverage and because it is a moisturiser it’s a double whammy! The only downside, it broke me out! So I have to use a primer under this to protect my skin! Have no idea why it broke me out but it was definitely this because I have tried nothing else new on my skin. It leaves a dewy and glowy look to the skin but doesn’t look like you’ve been licked by a dog! It’s just right :)

20121002-183045.jpg
SmashBox sheer focus tinted moisturiser in Light £19.50

The next favourite has to be Carmex lip balm! The first thing that is effected by the cold weather is my lips! They get dry very easily and during the start of the year, I had really bad chapped lips! I asked everyone on FaceBook how I could resolve the issue and I got LOADS of suggestions by lots of lovely people! When I’m not scrubbing my lips with a toothbrush or exfoliating my lips with sugar, Carmex has been doing the job! Lovely!

20121002-183059.jpg
Carmex Lip Balm in Cherry £2.69

The next favourite is actually a beauty tool! My favourite brush this month has to be the Real Techniques Blush brush which I think is the most versatile brush! You can use for it blush, bronzer but my favourite use for it is powder! Using this with my Rimmel Stay Matte powder has changed the way my skin looks! It creates a flawless look but doesn’t look cakey or flakey because the brush bristles are so soft and not too dense! LOVE IT!

20121002-183049.jpg
Real Techniques Blush Brush £9.99 and Rimmel Stay Matte powder in Translucent £3.99

I’m loving the Au Naturel palette by Sleek Make Up too!!! It’s AMAZING!!!! I’ve raved about it a few times but now I’m hitting pan on half the colours, so I’m going to miss it when it’s finished! I love mixing the top 4 middle shades for a neutral base and then blending a bit of the darker colours in the crease! Perfect every day eye look! The black I use as liner and for my brows sometimes! I’m not over keen on the shimmery colours if I’m honest just because its a bit over-done for what I like but I love this palette! Just be careful with the black cause it has MAJOR fall out! And it’s so pigmented that its hard to wipe off! It’s a curse and a blessing!

20121002-183055.jpg
Sleek Make up Au Naturel palette £7.99

For my lips I’ve got a combination to die for! I’ve not been a keen user of lip gloss and again, I think lip gloss can look quite over done sometimes but I love this Jelly Pong Pong lip frosting that I got in a GlossyBox! It’s a lovely pink colour and is SO moisturising! I first discovered lipgloss was when my lips got dry and I had to apply lip balm and I always wear lipstick so it always created a dewy lip! One day I thought.. SOD IT! Im going to start using my thousands of lip glosses! And so I did! If Jelly Pong Pong is hard to get, I recommend investing a hot pink sheer lipstick! It looks great over almost EVERY colour and glosses are so moisturising and easy to top up! You can also use JPP on your cheeks.. BONUS! The Jelly Pong Pong smells AMAZING too!

20121002-183105.jpg
Jelly Pong Pong Lip Frosting £10

The last product is the calming cream by MONU! You guys know I love the revitalising cream but this is also fantastic! It’s green so reduces redness but once again, MONU have cracked it by making a lightweight and easy to use face cream! It’s a lovely base moisturiser and I think it’s good even if you don’t want to reduce redness (my face is very yellow toned)! Fantastic cream and its so nourishing when I use it as a night cream, my skin thanks me for it!

20121002-183110.jpg
MONU calming cream £9.28

Stay tuned for my non-beauty favourites tomorrow :)
