My Top 3 Palettes for Spring/Summer! (Review and Swatches)

Hi beauties!

Spring is well and truly underway now in the UK, there’s still the odd shower or two but we’ve had some beautiful sunny days! In light of this I thought I’d write a post on the top five palette’s I’ll be using in the upcoming spring/summer months! Let’s get into it..

 

First up is the Huda Beauty ‘warm brown obsessions’ palette. This palette is small but mighty! I am absolutely loving the ‘obsessions’ collection from Huda Beauty as these palettes are perfect for any makeup lovers kit; just the right size not to take up too much space but amazingly pigmented with a whopping nine colours! This palette is ideal for those makeup lovers whos makeup bags are already bursting at the seams but keen to try the eyeshadow formula that the whole community is raving about! This very warm toned palette is so versatile and I find myself using it for nearly every eyeshadow look I do. The pigment of these shadows is amazing, one dip in the pan and the brush is covered in soft, blend-able colour – a must have for spring/summer looks! The palette contains one foil-effect gold shadow surrounded by eight stunning mattes making for an incredibly versatile burgundy and neutral toned palette. Turns out good things definitely do come in small packages! (I’d also suggest checking out the other palettes in the ‘obsessions’ collection too, there are so many cute colour combinations that will melt your heart!)

Next let’s talk about the Sigma ‘creme de couture’ palette.. my oh my, this is one beautiful palette! There is such an amazing range of stunning colours that just speak to my soul. This palette screams spring/summer from the gorgeous pastel colours to the eye-catching bright shades, there is something in this palette for everyone. The shades are extremely pigmented and blend like butter, something I love about this eyeshadow formula is that as you blend the shadows the colour does not fade away and become more translucent as is very common with bright shades. The shadows give a lovely matte finish with amazing colour payoff, everything you could ask for from a vibrant, colourful palette. This palette allows you to create so many versatile looks and tailor them to any outfit you decide to wear this summer.. no matter the colours! This is a palette available to enjoy by anyone, from the soft pastel ‘cherry blossom’ and ‘blue chocolat’ shades to the bright and bold ‘redberry rose and ‘cassis’ there is a shade in this palette for everyone!

Last, but certainly not least, is the Morphe Brushes ’35O2′ palette. This has to be one of my all time favourite palette purchases. I have been such a big fan of Morphe for many years now and own five of their eyeshadow palettes (I know, only five?!) Their eyeshadow formulas are so pigmented and both their matte and shimmer formulas are always of such high quality and never let me down. This palette in particular is perfect for spring/summer as the shade range is on point (I mean that red shade.. that’s perfection), all the shades are very warm toned and as there are 35 to choose from the ability to create gorgeous fades and un-clockable blends is second to none – this is down to the incredible textures of the shadows and also how versatile yet coherent the shade range is! A definite must have palette for those warm, summery looks.. I think I’m so drawn to this palette as I am really into wearing bright reds this year and this palette is perfect for creating the right eyeshadow look to compliment my red outfit choice!

So there we have it, my top 3 palettes for the spring/summer. All three palettes are so versatile and you can create any desired look to suit any outfit choice! They’re also amazing for people just starting out in makeup who need a few staples to get them underway! Let me know what your favourite palette is below! Until next time beauties..

Pink Makeup Look/Walkthrough ūüĆļ

Hello Beauties! I was going to say that spring is around the corner so we should all get excited and crack out every piece of pastel clothing and makeup we can find, but with this miserable weather in the UK it couldn’t feel any further away.. nonetheless, let’s get in the mood with this cute pink makeup look that you can all rock when the spring season finally decides to come around! This bright liner and lipstick combo is all I’ll be wearing for the spring/summer, so let’s dive in and see how it’s achieved! I’ll list a full description of products used at the end of this blog post and where you can purchase them!

The first step of my makeup routine is skincare, if you don’t have a good skin base to work with then you’re not going to be able to fully achieve the look that you want to get out of your makeup. Because of this, I always start with a few pumps of Bare Minerals ‘Skinlongevity’ serum. This serum is perfect as it is made for all skin types and works to protect the skin against environmental stressors as it’s packed full of antioxidants. It’s powered by long life herb so is constantly working to help the skin look and feel young and healthy. I take a few pumps into the palm of my hand an gently press it into the face, immediately you can feel the hydration on your skin and you’re all prepped to start your routine.

First things first, primer! To go with my skincare I use the Bare Minerals ‘Good Hydrations’ primer, can you tell my skin’s a little dry at the moment? This primer is perfect because it preps my skin by smoothing out any pores thanks to the coconut alkanes therefore giving me a great base which allows my foundation to glide on flawlessly (you can find my review on both the new primers launched here!) If you’ve been following my blog for a while you’ll know my all time favourite foundation is the Illamasqua ‘Skin Base’, this formula is so easy to apply and so flawless looking (due to it being quite full coverage) so it’s my absolute go-to when it comes to my base (you can find my full review here!) After applying my foundation with my favourite Marc Jacobs ‘The Face II Sculpting’ brush, I like to go in with the Benefit Cosmetics ‘Boi-ing’ concealer under the eyes. I use my ring finger, as this is the most delicate and gentle, to place the concealer carefully under my eyes, in the centre of my forehead and chin and then over any imperfections that might be invading my face that day. Once these steps are done, I set my base with the loose powder from Rimmel, it’s a drug-store brand so people who like more high-end makeup tend to stay away from brands like this, but this is honestly the best loose setting powder I have come across. It is very finely milled and still gives the skin the flawless look that I am trying to achieve.

So now our base is done, we move onto eyes! I fill in (and basically reshape) my eyebrows first with the Benefit ‘Precisely My Brow’ pencil and then with the ‘Brow Zings’ wax and powder. Once my brows are on and looking pretty much the same (they’re sisters, not twins!) I prime my eyelids with the Mac Cosmetics ‘paint pot’ in soft ochre. I then set this with the loose powder from before. For this pink look, I decided the Sigma Beauty ‘Creme de Couture’ palette would be perfect as it’s a gorgeous selection of, very pigmented, bright matte colours. First I look the shade cherry blossom on a big fluffy blender brush and blended this through the crease, taking it slightly above the crease but not all the way to the brow bone. I then look the shade redberry rose and did the same, however not bringing it up as far as I did the first shade in order to give an effortlessly blended effect. I then took redberry rose down onto the outer corner of the lid and blended it towards the centre of the lid. After this, I took my paint pot and half cut my crease, making sure to blend it out at the centre into the redberry rose shade for an easier blend later on. I next grabbed my Too Faced ‘sweet peach’ eyeshadow palette and selected the shade bellini to go over where I had cut the crease, I used a packer eyeshadow brush to pop this onto where I cut the crease and blended it into the redberry rose colour already there. I then grabbed by Jeffree Star Cosmetics liquid lipstick in the shade ‘Masochist’ and used a liner brush to create a bright pink winged liner. If you’re going to do the same and use a pink lipstick then please make sure to double check it is eye safe before applying it near the eye area. And there we go, eye makeup complete!

After the eye makeup is complete I go back in and finish my base by enhancing what’s already there with a bit of colour. I went straight for my trusty Juvia’s Place blush palette and added some colour to the apples of my cheeks. I then took the Bare Minerals ‘warmth’ all over face colour to warm up my complexion, blending this into my forehead, cheekbones, jawline and then using whatever is left on the brush to buff into the rest of my foundation to slightly warm up the face all over. I then took my favourite highlighting palette by Huda Beauty the ‘pink sands edition’ and made those cheekbones blinding!

Lastly, onto my two favourite L’s.. lippy and lashes! I used the Eyelure lashes in No.126 to really make the eye makeup standout. No surprises here, the lipstick is a combo of Jeffree Star Cosmetics ‘Masochist’ and ‘714’, I used a brush to ombre the colours by applying the darker shade to the outside of the lips and the lighter in the middle, and then blending them together.

a few of my fav pink lippys!

Welcome back my lovelies! (Or hello to anyone who’s just discovered my blog!)

So I did a poll on my Instagram (linked here if you fancy a follow!) on what blog post you guys would like to see next and it was a close call between my new favourite makeup remover and a post on pink lippys, but the pink lippys just took it! So here we go..

Jeffree Star Cosmetics – Doll Parts

Now inevitably there’s going to be¬†at least one Jeffree Star lipstick when I’m reviewing lipsticks, so we may as well start off there! The first one I want to talk about is ‘Doll Parts’. It is the most gorgeous cool toned pink liquid lipstick, the colour gives me complete Mean Girls vibes every time I see it. The formula goes on opaque, dries down completely matte and lasts for hours! The coverage with only one swipe of the wand is unbelievable, you really don’t need a lot of product for a full coverage lip so they last a substantial amount of time saving you money! Something I love about this colour is that it is so versatile, it works on any skin tone and is just so wearable. This shade of pink can be easily worn on a day to day basis and is one hundred percent a staple in my kit.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics – Prom Night

The next (and last) Jeffree Star lippy I want to talk about is ‘Prom Night’. It is a¬†beautiful¬†bright matte pink shade which is definitely not for the faint hearted! Just like the other matte liquid lips in the collection, this one also goes on opaque and dries down to a matte. ‘Prom Night’ brings such a gorgeous burst of colour to a makeup look and all eyes go straight for it! Even though the formula dries down matte it is still very hydrating and doesn’t leave my lips feeling dry or cracked. If you already do or you’re thinking about wearing brighter coloured lipstick this shade is definitely a great place to start, it’s a stunning colour that’ll make you feel powerful.

Ted Baker – Treasured Treats

The next lippy is one from the brand Ted Baker. This brand isn’t necessarily known for their makeup products but these lippys are so beautiful, they’re a must have! Not only is the colour stunning, but the packaging and all round aesthetic of this lippy is beautiful. The lipstick itself has a ‘T’ etched into the top and I’m so here for it. This specific shade is a beautiful light pink shade that reminds me a lot of candyfloss, it’s glossy and gorgeous! The formula of this lipstick is very creamy and feels amazing on the lips. These lipsticks are so hydrating and pigmented, the colour payoff is brilliant. I mentioned this in my ‘red lipsticks‘ post, the only thing that baffles me about these lipsticks is the fact they don’t have individual names, when buying a lipstick I like to be able to find out what that specific colour is called. Regardless of the name fiasco, these lipsticks are definitely worth a try. Not only are they beautiful to look at but the colour is also beautiful.

Huda Beauty – Gossip Gurl

The next pink lippy is by the brand Huda Beauty and it’s called ‘Gossip Gurl’. I’d describe this colour as a very cute and bold pink colour, but don’t take bold in the wrong way! What I mean by that is it’s a very classic pink and is very wearable, I have tried it on a lot of skin tones and it seems to suit everyone! Something I love about the Huda liquid mattes is that they’re so comfortable to wear, the formula dries down completely matte but still feels extremely hydrating and doesn’t dry out the lips at all. Saying this, they also last all day without the need to reapply, something that is hard to perfect when the formula is so hydrating! The packaging is also so cute, the frosty looking glass just looks so sophisticated and is enough to draw anybody in! This lipstick is a definite must have!

Maybelline – 157, More to Adore

Another pink lippy I love is from Maybelline. It is shade no.157 ‘More to Adore’ from their ‘coloursensational’ range. This formula is¬†sooo incredibly creamy, it feels like an absolute dream on the lips. It is so hydrating and nourishing, because of this it is not a heavy formula and doesn’t feel like you’re wearing any product which is refreshing. Not only this, but the formula is nicely pigmented which means the colour payoff is definitely worth trying. This shade is a light baby pink that looks pretty glossy. The shade is very versatile but is more suited to people with lighter skin tones as, though the formula is pigmented, it is more sheer than some of the other brands’ lipsticks above. If you like a more subtle pink lipstick I’d definitely suggest giving this one a go!

Rimmel – Kate Moss, 101

The last lippy I want to talk about is from Rimmel. It is one of the shades from their ‘lasting finish’ collaboration with Kate Moss and is shade no.101. It is a very light pink shade, probably the lightest pink shade I own, but nonetheless is very beautiful. This is a perfect shade for people who like wearing lipstick but don’t want to wear anything heavy or with lots of colour. The feel of the formula is very lightweight and hydrating and it says on for a decent amount of time. Application is so easy as it just glides across the lips. I’d definitely recommend trying out this lippy and adding it to your collection because the formula is amazing, especially for the price point!

So there we have it! I hope you enjoyed reading this post and that it was a helpful insight into some of my favourite pink lipsticks! what are some of your favs? let me know!

Until next time lovelies.. x

Liebster Award

I’ve been debating the post I should add to my blog, and luckily I’ve had the decision made for me! The gorgeous Paige of ‘Little P Blog’ has nominated me for the Liebster Award which is so lovely of her, and you should¬†definitely¬†go and check out her blog!¬†Now at first glance I wasn’t quite sure what it was about, but after reading her post I’ve discovered it’s a brilliant way of discovering new blogs to follow, while telling everyone a little more about me in the process!

liebster

Paige has given me some questions to answer, so here they are!

how long have you been blogging for?

I have only been blogging for two months, so not long at all! Even so, I’ve really enjoyed writing and editing the posts I’ve put up so far so long may it continue!!

have you considered uploading to YouTube?

I can’t say I have, maybe something to think about in the future! Never say never!

what do you like to blog about most?

Not sure if anyone’s noticed, but I¬†love posting about beauty! Anything from makeup to skincare to bath bombs, you name it, I’ll blog about it! I think it’s mainly because that’s my industry, being a makeup artist, so I can’t help but be fascinated by it and want to share it with others!

where is your favourite place that you have traveled to?

Now that’s a hard question! I’ve been incredibly lucky with some of the locations I’ve been able to visit so it’s very hard to pick one, but keeping with the theme of this blog I’m going to have to say Milan. Clearly, the shopping capital of the world so I was going to adore it anyway, however this trip allowed me to find new love for products and brands I’d never heard of thanks to their MASSIVE Sephora! We’re not lucky enough to have a Sephora in the UK so shopping there was an absolute dream! Not only that, but the architecture was absolutely incredible. The ‘Duomo Di Milano’ was one of the most spectacular things I’ve ever seen, it is absolutely massive and so detailed, an amazing place to be able to visit! I’ve attached some pictures below (maybe I’ll do a separate blog post about it??)

what made you start to want blogging?

I started my blog because I had so many products that I absolutely love and wanted to tell others about them! I thought it’d be a good way to get that out there, whilst also being a good way to spend some of my free time!

what is the most frustrating thing about blogging?

I think one of the hardest things about blogging is knowing what to blog about! I have so many ideas for posts but it’s difficult knowing which ones will reach the audience I have in mind for this blog, so that can be quite frustrating sometimes!

favourite series to watch at the moment?

Definitely Stranger Things! I’ve just started to re-watch season one as I want to have a refresher so I can go into season two in the know! I’ve heard really good things about season two so I’m really looking forward to watching it!

what is your favourite Christmas tradition?

Bar far my favourite tradition is putting the angel decoration on the top of the Christmas tree. My siblings and I do it together every year and it’s the sweetest thing!

are you open about your blog? do you tell people you blog?

I don’t see the point of keeping the fact you blog from people, I put a lot of effort into my posts so I’d like as many people to see them as possible!

twitter or instagram?

Definitely instagram! I post nearly every day and it’s a great way to advertise myself and my business! I am on twitter as well but I prefer the layout of instagram for sure!

Now I’d like to nominate a few others for this award! They are:

A Reading Cat

The Beauty Swatcher

All Things Allatt

UniLifeTravel

Tales of Belle

If you’d like to join in, here are my questions for you!

red lipsticks for autumn/winter!

I’ve always found that an autumn/winter look isn’t complete without a gorgeous red lip, so I’ve put together a few of my favourites for you guys to try this year!

Ted Baker ‘Treasured Treats’ – Bright Red + Darker Red

We’re starting with one of my absolute favourite brands, Ted Baker. Now you may be a bit skeptical about these lippys as this brand isn’t famed for their makeup range, but I can honestly tell you they’re brilliant. I’m so here for the aesthetic of these lipsticks, they look absolutely stunning. The formula of this lipstick is incredibly creamy and because of this the texture feels amazing on the lips. These lipsticks are so hydrating and the colour pay-off is brilliant. The only thing that baffles me slightly is the fact they don’t have individual names (hence why I’ve made them up), when buying a lipstick I expect to be able to look at the bottom and find out what that specific colour is called, but I guess this brand may be a bit too up market for that! All in all they are beautiful lipsticks, not just because of the colour, but also because the formula feels incredible!

Jeffree Star Cosmetics ‘Velour Liquid Lipstick’ – Rich Blood

rich blood

I’ve mentioned this brand on my blog before because I absolutely adore it! It is by¬†far¬†my favourite lipstick brand. The velour liquid lipsticks are a staple in my kit, I must own about 15 of them (and I’m telling you now, that still isn’t enough)! This lipstick dries down to a lovely shiny finish but still feels hydrating and keeps its bit of sparkle even when it dries! One of the main reasons I LOVE this formula is that it stays on no matter what, it honestly lasts for hours and hours. You can eat, drink, go about daily life and this lipstick¬†will not budge.¬†What’s more is this brand is cruelty free AND vegan which I really appreciate, so anyone and everyone can get their hands on one!

Huda Beauty ‘Liquid Matte’ – Cheerleader

huda cheerleader

It wasn’t until I went to Milan in August this year that I tried these lipsticks for the first time in Sephora, but I’m so glad I did! I was drawn to them because of their frosty packaging, it just looks so classy and sophisticated I couldn’t help myself! This lippy is soo pigmented, one layer and you’re good to go! The colour is also true to the way it looks in the packaging, a lot of the time you can put on a lipstick and it looks completely different than it did in it’s packaging, however I’ve not found that with these lipsticks and I tested a good few (and might have bought a good few as well..)! The formula dries down completely matte and stays put, however it still feels hydrating and does not dry out your lips, a must have in my eyes!

Jeffree Star Cosmetics ‘Lip Ammunition’ – Unicorn Blood

unicorn blood 2

I know, I know, another Jeffree Star lipstick? This one’s a different formula! These are their ‘lip ammunition’ range which are advertised as stick lipsticks which have ‘one swipe coverage’ and they’re not wrong! This lipstick is incredibly pigmented which means you don’t need to use a lot of product, making it last longer! It has a satin like finish which is absolute gorgeous, however this one does have a tendency to come off if you ear/drink etc. Probably the best thing about this lipstick is that it smells like ice-cream, it really does! It’s an absolutely beautiful colour and more on the darker side for those smokey autumn/winter looks. I love this formula and I’m sure you will to!

So there we have it, I hope this post was helpful for those looking for a new red lippy to try out this autumn/winter! These lipsticks the perfect thing to top off a gorgeous makeup look, and I urge everyone to try at least one of them! What are your favourite red lipstick? Let me know in the comments so I can give them a go!

October Favourites!

November is now upon us, which means it’s time to look back on my beauty and lifestyle favourites from the past month! I’ve put together a collection of things that I’ve been loving this month – some new, some old! So let’s dive in..

Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick – Daddy

daddy.jpgdaddy2.jpg

This lippy is the result of a collaboration between Jeffree Star and Manny MUA. This colour absolutely screams autumn to me, I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it! It’s a very cool toned brown and perfect for those dark, smokey looks that are so in this time of year! It goes so well with the quintessential autumn colours; reds, oranges, browns and yellows. A must have for this time of year!

Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter Palette – The Pink Sands Edition

huda

This highlighter palette is everything you could ever want. Not only does it LOOK stunning, but the product itself is to die for!! First of all the packaging is always amazing, I think we can all agree the makeup on the cover is just perfection!

 

This palette retails for ¬£40 in the UK off of cultbeauty.co.uk, which I think is an excellent price. I’ll tell you why – first off the pan sizes are huge, I love this about the palette as it allows you to comfortably dip in practically any sized brush and get a good coating of product, and this means the palette lasts longer than average! The formula of the product is absolutely stunning; it’s lightweight, creamy, SO pigmented and with three powders (SANTORINI, IBIZA and AZORES) and one cream formula (CAPRI) to choose from it’s well worth it’s price! (well.. I think so!). The colours in the ‘Pink Sands’ palette are also perfect for this time of year, with a mixture of warm and cool shades there’s one for every look!

Kat Von D “Shade and Light” Contour Palette

This contour palette is everything I didn’t know I needed! It was so hyped up when it first came out and I will admit I was pretty skeptical because of it. The palette retails for ¬£37 in the UK and I wasn’t sure about the price point, however, after using the palette for the first time I knew I was onto a winner!

Top left-“lucid” (light beige toned powder) Top middle-“lyric” (yellow toned banana powder) Top right-“levitation” (warm toned peachy powder) Bottom left-“sombre” (cool grey toned powder) Bottom middle-“shadowplay” (warmer grey toned powder) Bottom right-“subconscious” (deepest colour in the palette, cool but still with a grey undertone)

The palette comes with six different (all matte) shades; three highlight powders and three contour powders. The powder formula is highly pigmented and the colours come in a good range. The top three light shades are very versatile and I mainly use them to set under my eyes, however they also make good transition colours when applying eyeshadow. The bottom three contour powders are a great trio, my favourite is the far left shadow as it has slight grey undertones, making colour look like a more natural shadow instead of obvious makeup.

Urban Decay “all nighter” setting spray

all-nighter.jpg

I have been a massive fan of this product for the longest time and I use it every day of my life! (well, when I’m wearing makeup anyway!).

After I apply my base (foundation, concealer, etc) I always make sure I give my face a spray before moving onto setting everything with my powders, I also use the spray as the final step of my makeup routine. This product is SO easy to use and only takes 3-4 sprays to cover my whole face (although I do use a bit more depending on what my face needs to last through that day!). The product retails for ¬£23.50 in the UK which I must admit I do think is a bit pricey, however, price becomes one of the minor factors when you find a product that actually works and that you use in your everyday routine as it’s SO reliable. I can go out for 8+ hours after applying the setting spray and my makeup stays flawless, no creasing, no fading and no settling into those fine lines in the skin. I really struggle with the creasing around my “smile lines” (from the corners of my mouth to the edges of my nose) but with this setting spray I find it doesn’t become an issue! Overall, this is one of, if not, my must have products in my makeup kit!

So there we have it! My October fav’s, I hope you enjoyed reading them and hopefully you’re thinking about trying at least one of these products for Autumn/Winter 2017!!
