Day 19;

Day 19; Someone Who's Make-Up Style You Love

You may have heard my mention Lucy Mecklenburgh before but seriously her hair and make up is flawless! i cant seem to find who her make up artist is :( but she always looks lovely! Her eye make up is stunning. I really love her style!

February Favoritess!

Time for my February Favorites!

Finally bought myself some dry shampoo, and i loove it! It's soo good and this one lightens your roots aswell so its great if you have any regrowth! I wash my hair every other day or if my hairs feeling okay after two days of not washing it i may go another day but this is soo good! I even use it just to give my hair more volume! 

I finally got the new Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation a couple of days ago and i had to add it into my favorites cause ive been using it everyday since! Its really nice and works well with my skin! (review soon!) 

MUA brought out the new range 'love hearts' so i picked up the lipbalms! Now i do love these but i have really dry lips and i dont think i would called them a lip balm completely they are a bit of a gloss but either way theyare a really nice texture and the colors are great! My favorite is 'Kiss Me' (the picture)

The Benefit stay dont stray concealer and eyeshadow primer- my new best friend. I really like this i have it in a small tester but I am seriously excited to get the full sized version. I really helps my concealer stay on and my eye shadow does stay on longer but most of all i feel like it stands out alot more. I am still trying to find my perfect eyelid primer- any suggestions? 

This is benefits under-eye brightening boost but i feel because if I use concealer and this my concealer seems to crease to much and I would never go out without my concealer! But this is absolutely amazzing for a highlight under your brows! It looks so pretty i cant explain how much i use this! 

What are your Feb Faves?

Day 17; an item i regret buying

Well i haven't particuarlly  bought this Item my mum actually bought it and i have tried it and i HATED it. I hate the packaging, i hate that its sort of glittery i think? It's horrible on my dry skin, i hate that it doesn't stay put, the colors don't match. i really don't like the consistency  i just really don't like it but this is just for my skin so it may be good for other peoples skin!

Day 14;

Day 14; item from my wishlist!

I recently posted a wishlist post check it out here and i defiantly want the Real Techniques core collection brushes!

More than you bargain for!!

Some of the products you buy - and get more for you money!

I love it when I find out a way I can use a product in a different way-      it sometimes saves quite a bit of money! So I thought i would share some with my beautiful bloggers!

Johnson And Johnson Baby Powder 500G

Normally baby (talcum) powder is normally used after bathing to create a smooth friction-free to reduce the effects of rubbing and chaffing. But it can also be used as a dry shampoo! just apply to your roots and massage into the scalp and wohla! 

Vaseline is probably the most versatile products! Can be use for lip balm, lip gloss, night cream alternative, nail cuticle treatment. Carefully put it on your eyelashes and people swear this helps them grow faster?! anyone ever done this? Also can be used as a moisturiser.

Don't want to invest in tinted moisturiser- make your own! just mix your usual foundation with moisturiser, done!

ssudocrem is great can be used for sunburn, burns, achne and more but i bet you didn't know it was a great, inexpensive primer!

There's a few multi-use products!

DIY make up brush holder..

I have seen these all over Youtube! Elle and Blair Fowler (juicystar07 and allthatglitters21) from Youtube sell these on their website Glitzy Glam.
But I thought I would give it ago myself...

All you need is

1- A vase of your choice (mine was from Here for £2.99)
2- Ribbon (or any other decorative materials - cheap as chips!)
3- Filler (I am suing decorative sand I found at an arts and crafts store - £1.50)
4- All purpose glue (clear)

First put the ribbon around your vase and make a bow and secure with glue, or decorate with your chosen items.

Then start adding the filler or sand.

And here is your finished product!

Hope you all like it!!
