Sorry I’ve been quiet for over a week, I have had a whirlwind of appointments, meetings, networking, mummy stuff, me stuff and then I hosted my last event of 2014 on Thursday, leaving me totally wiped out yesterday and back and refreshed today.
So this evening I’m curling up on the sofa with a chick flick, indulging in chocolates and catching up on my blog. Think I have a couple of FOTDs to share, all about the event on Thursday and what’s coming in 2015, an experiment I’ve put my nails through and some fun little bits to share.
Anyways here is today’s face, although it looked better with my outfit for work rather than Dans bright red hoody!
Off to stuff my face with galaxy! Be back soon 🙂
Morning is it really only Wednesday? I been up early today, the baby didn’t want to sleep. I spent most of yesterday networking & in meetings, I didn’t get chance to share about either or post about my make up, but I’m going to try and play catch up today between work, pole and paying a visit to Great Orman Street Hospital where they monitor and regularly check my baby boy. Anyone else’s days seem to be non stop?
Anyway here is my make up today, I feel so tired im surprised it doesn’t look like it’s been applied by a child!
Got load’s done today and I’m starting to catch up with myself on the blogs, plus actually got some work done, I even began to take that washing pile I wanted to bury my head in this morning and I painted my nails!!
Wore different eyeshadow again today in my mission to wear a different colour each day for a week. Today an icey pale pink, minky mauve and deep purple all Dior, plus a touch of liner and mascara then framed brows with hd brows pallette. I like it it goes with my pale pink spotty shirt nicely, well I think so anyways..
Also got to try 2 new make up products from my November Glossybox (Beauty Box Blogs coming tommorow) they were Burts Bees Lip Shine and Lollipops Eyeliner, both of which im loving!
Hey so im sticking to my guns on this whole eyeshadow malarkey, I did wear make up over the weekend but I didn’t have time to blog and only just remembered to take pics on my way to work #CarSelfie
On Saturday (top pics) I wore a kind of lilac grey from an old Dior 5 colour palette and then Sunday I wore Estee Lauder khaki and smoked outer edges with a really dark charcoal. What I have noticed is people are more aware of my eyes as a feature where I’m varying from the normal bronze shades I normally wear, I’m enjoying playing with colour.
Hey I’ve just finished work (11pm) but wanted to stick to my promise of wearing new eye colours each day for a week. Today I was sporting some pink which I havent worn for ages but I quite like it, makes the blue in my eyes pop, well I think so anyway or do I look a numpty? What do you think?
P.S in some of the pics I look like a drowned rat… It rained in the school run this morning!
Morning I went Aldi shopping yesterday (this makes me smile everytime I write it because my other half thinks it’s hilarious to sing “I’m an Aldi shopper” over 50 cents Im a windows shopper haha!)
Anyways there is a point to me telling you this as I’m testing out various make up products from their Lacura range and yesterday grabbed this lippy for a bargain 2 quid!! It’s more pink than I thought but I’m liking it. I’ll obviously do a full lacura post once I’ve tried a few more bits but for now what do you think?…
I’ll review some of these products separately but for now here is my face of the day. Would love to hear your feedback in comments below.
It includes new treats like the Lord & Berry Bronzer I received in this month’s Birchbox, the Lacura eyeshadow pallette that cost £4 from Aldi! and the Benefit They’re Real Push Up Eyeliner that I got with December’s very inspirational Feminism issue of Elle Magazine. I recommend you all go grab a copy!
Not done this for a while and won’t bore you all with the full list of products but it’s sunny I’m feeling good and thought I’d share my make up today….
I have been watching far too much Zoella lately, watching last night felt inspired by her latest looks of berry lips. Although the pink undertones are showing through a lot in mine today and my eyebrows are bad lol! (Bit like they say hairdressers never get chance to do their own, I don’t much look like a beauty therapist today!)
Are you sporting berry shades this autumn? I’d love to see, post links below xoxo
So today I’m rocking my new top… I fell into a few shops when in London for the BirchBoxManithon yesterday and this gorgeous coral long sleeve number from Ted Baker was one of my purchases it’s matches my Models Own Polish perfectly! Obviously I had to combine it with one of my FAVS Laqa and Co Lip Lube in Bees Knees!
Foundation Dior Forever Fluid Foundation in 200
Eyeshadow Bronzer to define in arch and Eyeshadow duo browns by Dior
Mascara Arbonne It’s A Long Story Mascara in black
Lips Laqa and Co Ltd in Bees Knees
Ok it’s late today, the little one in the middle of the main pic distracted me lots and I had a water fight with my eldest and 10 kids in the street… I lost, we also went to a fun day where we saw creepy crawlies and he took part in lots of activities.
Any who if you saw my instagram this morning, I was rocking this look…
Haha attractive don’t you think LOL
Once transformed with a bit of kit, I looked like this
Bronzer Arbonne before foundation applied thicker to blend definition
Foundation Dior Forever 200
Blusher So Susan Universal Blush
Eyeshadows Dior old two colour palette with touch of Bronzer blended above eyelid fold
Mascara Rimmel London The Max volume flash mascara
Lipgloss Estee Lauder Pure Colour Garnet Desire Shimmer Gloss this isn’t what I expected the colours a lot softer I like it, q nice light non sticky daytime gloss.
Liked these eyes and the make up lasted all day even through the water fight!
