Exciting News!

I feel as though it's been a long time no speak with my blog since last year where I started blogging again slightly last summer. I do love blogging and writing things for you guys to read and as a lot of other youtubers seem to have started to put a blog post up along side a video so people can see more in depth swatches, I feel as though I should get more into doing it again as I do like this idea. My reason for not blogging on this blog is because I really depise the URL and I know that I can change it but it does cause many difficulties and I also hate the way that this blog is laid out. So I have an idea: I'm going to be setting up my own website in conjunction with my YouTube channel so much like those of 'Gemsmaquillage' and 'Fleur De Force', O will be able to put up blog posts that I want to on my own website/blog that I am proud of! This is obviously going to take me some time to set up so please bare with me but when all is done, I hope you all still thoroughly support me! Thank you!

My Fav' Make-Up Combo's Of The Moment...

I took these pictures back when I was in Italy on holiday but as you'll probably know if you follow me on twitter is that my MacBook completely broke whilst we were out there so I couldn't persist with my outfit post or my reviews that I set out to do. However, it is now back up and running and I'm now back on the 'blogging and youtube band-waggon'! 

I never used to see the point in mixing products or trying to make certain things work with others and I defiantly never thought one product could improve another but how I was wrong...

Revlon Colourburst Lipstick in Pink in the afternoon, Mac fluidline in blacktrack, Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Nude Delight, Softlips lipbalm, My Face Cosmetics Lipstick in 137, Fake Benefit Eye Liner Brush, Sigma E25 Brush, Bourjois Healthy Mix concealer in 52, Barry M Lipliner in Pink, Mac Paint in Bare Canvas.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer with Sigma Travel E25 Brush:

These two together work like a dream. The concealer is perfect for the under eyes as it doesn't feel or look heavy on the skin meaning it doesn't cake or stick to any of the dry patches on the skin. It also manages to cover everything up as well whilst still making the skin look like skin. The brush however is the thing that really does make this concealer shine.. It blends it into the skin to create an airbrushed finish to the under eyes and also gives a more concentrated coverage to a certain area than it would if you were applying it with your fingers.
Mac Fluidline in Blacktrack, Mac Paint in Bare Canvas and Fake Benefit eye liner brush: 

These three put together create my simplest eye look. The Mac Paint does a great job at priming the lids and this is now the only primer I use for all eyeshadows, however it is also very opaque and creates a great background colour for liner on the upper lash line. Gel Liner has vastly become my favourite eye liner method and this little gem of a brush helps it to glide with ease. I ordered this fake benefit brush from eBay for £1.99 and I have to say, I've never spent a better two pounds on anything. I've always wanted a bent eyeliner brush and the only one that people seem to talk about is the one from coastal scents which is extremely hard to get over here sadly so I took a risk and got this one instead and I'm happy to say that these three work amazingly well together! 

My face cosmetics lipstick for fair skin tones in 137 and Revlon super lustrous lipgloss in nude delight: 

I have recently posted on here that I do not under any circumstances suit nude lip products and I truly did believe that as I had tried so so many of them from Mac to 2true and non of them had completely suited me. However, whilst mooching around the isles of a nearby boots store I came across this beauty of a lipstick and as soon as it was swatched, I just had to have it. It's the perfect nude with a pinky-rose undertone which suits me better than a cold blue-pink one. My only problem with this lipstick is that it can be a tiny bit drying and sometimes needs a bit of spicing up! I love to apply this lipgloss in the middle of my lips to plump them up a little and get them looking a bit more shiny.

Revlon Colourburst Lipstick in Pink in the afternoon, Illamasqua Lipgloss and Barry M lipliner in Pink:

I am a complete newbie to lipliners, until I brought this one, I had never used one before as if I'm honest.. I always thought they were for older women in their late forties who were trying to keep their lips defined. After using this one though, I shall be purchasing some more as this one really did help my lipstick to stay on a lot longer even through a 4 course meal and 5 glasses of coca cola! You now could be wondering what the Illamasqua lipgloss is doing there as lets be honest, the colours are completely different.. well, this lipgloss is a funny one, in which it's a thick white gloss with lots of blue and pink iridescent glitter particles which run throughout it. This gives the lip colour more dimensions as when it hits the light, it shines a different colour. 

Thank you for taking the time to read and I hope you enjoyed!

Night Three: Outfit & Make-Up!

I've had time to do this at night which is surprising for me as I'm normally in a rush on holiday evenings to get ready as I tend to spend far to much time on a sun bed reading some kind of romance novel!

Night Number Two: Outfit & Make Up

This year's shopping has already been more successful than the past four years that we have visited here. I've brought some makeup from an italian pharmacy and also brought a lippy from YSL that I have wanted for ages! Every year I visit a shop that is like Italy's equivalent to Forever 21, called Terranova, usually I never really pick up anything interesting but this year I got a beautiful maxi dress from there which I'm wearing below. I also picked up a few more bits which I will defiantly be hauling in a video when I get home!

Holidays, Apology + Night Outfits!

Let's start by saying that I'm on holiday! In Italy may I add, with boiling temperatures, turquoise pools and cloudless sky's. We've been coming here for five years now and it is absolutely beautiful. This year however, I have access to the outside world as our villa has wi-fi which is amazing for me! I know I've really been lacking on the video front but I do have my reasons... 
1. My MacBook Pro has recently decided it hates me and my charger and is refusing to charge 2. I don't seem to be able to record a video under 20 minutes 
3. I forgot to bring my camera on holiday so I can't film anymore videos for 10 days unless they're on my MacBook. 

I thought I would blog though as I have a lot of spare time just lounging by the pool and reading magazines. I'm going to try and make my blog more professional, including better photos and more product posts as well. To start this week of blogging off, I'm going to show you what I wore last night to go out for a meal. I'll be posting my outfit from the night before everyday as well.
