Beauty: Purple eyes + nude lips


Hey Lovelies, how are we all? Sorry I haven’t blogged in ages. Since getting back from holiday I’ve just been a bit distant from my blog. And there is nothing worse than forcing blog posts. So I’ve been keeping track of any ideas I have had and am now ready to get back to it. I have been posting to Instagram so I haven’t been completely gone.



Today I’m kick starting my month break with some new beauty products. Lets start with this GOSH Velvet Touch Lipstick in the colour Nougat. Wow, what a really fab lippy. I have quite thin lips so I often shy away from wearing lippy and head towards a gloss, but this dusk pink nude is so nice. I have to admit I have a similar shade lipstick from Loreal, but this one is so smooth and as the name suggests, velvety! It is an A/W make up staple for me, its dark enough to not look odd against my pale-ish skin.




I love love love to highlight and contour. Not as extreme as Kim K but I like to look a bit bronzed and shimmery. These No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter and Bronzing Highlighter are perfect for summer skin and winter skin. The bronzing highlighter is great for when you have some colour, as it shows it off even more with that summer glow. The highlighter is great for brightening eyes and highlighting above your cheekbones. I use it everyday and the results are always fab. Below you can see what they both look like on my skin tone. Shimmering goodness in a stick!




I really am a sucker for eye shadow palettes. This muted purple hues one by GOSH is so pretty and girly. I love the look of a purple smokey eye and this palette helps me create the perfect day smokey eye for work! The middle 3 colours are my faves they are so autumnal. For £9.99 in Superdrug I think it’s a really great addition my make up collection which does consist of a lot of Urban Decay. This palette fits in so well with my Naked 3 Palette.

Have you picked up any new beauty products lately? Let me know in the comments below, I’m always stalking the make up isles when I go shopping!

Oh! You can find the whole range of Gosh Cosmetics in Superdrug stores or online >here< (this post isn’t sponsored I just really love finding new beauty products).

Bronzed Up

new makeup bronzed

Hey Lovelies, I went a little make up mad in Boots the other day! A very clear ‘bronzed’ colour scheme had emerged by the end of it. To say that I am having a constant battle with my eyebrows is an understatement. I haven’t done anything to them now for about 4 months I think. Just letting them grow and grow until they basically have no shape at all, so I can go and get them done professionally. It is about time I go get them seen to.  In preparation for this historic event, I ended up purchasing some much needed brow stuff. I do love my Benefit brow powder, but when a girls on a budget she has to be sensible. I will go back to Benefit, but for now I thought I’d change things up and go for a more ‘high street’ make up brand. Rimmel have recently released some brow mascaras, so I thought I’d give them a try. I got BROW THIS WAY (4) in Medium Blonde and Dark Brown, I sometimes find that my eyebrows are way too dark so I thought I could somehow mix the two. I also got (5) a Maybelline Master Shape brow pencil in Soft brown. I haven’t tried it yet, but if its too light it will be adopted my my mama.

Moving on from brow products to some bronzed/golden products. (1) SEVENTEEN Instant Glow shimmer brick, a gorgeous set of 4 golden shades to swirl onto your bronzing brush/blush brush to create that bronzed sun kissed look or for some slight contouring. The lightest colour is also really nice to use singularly as a highlighter. (3) I think I purchased this Rimmel WONDER’FULL mascara because it contains Argan Oil, and we all know the wonders it does to your hair. So why not treat your lashes with some TLC. I’ve been using it about a week and so far, I can’t tell if its softens them or anything, but they are still very full and big which is what I like in my lashes.

Now for the more interesting purchase, well for me anyway. (2) Maybelline Kajal Liner in Gold is a very creamy kohl eyeliner. I am one for using pen eyeliner, in black. But I thought, lets try something different, and give my eyes a hint of sparkle. To open my eyes up I am going to be using this gold eyeliner under my eyes.
