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.
GOSH VELVET TOUCH LIPSTICK
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.
No7 INSTANT RADIANCE
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!
GOSH 9 SHADES- TO ENJOY IN NEW YORK
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).
As promised last week, I am going to be doing a weekly nail art step by step, or should I say its more of a Friday thing!?
Today I thought I’d continue with the spring theme, like the floral nails here , I kept thinking all day about what I could do. Then with some browsing on pinterest and tumblr, I began to see lots of bug themed designs. I was tempted to do bees, maybe I will do then one day. I then thought why not a lady bird, they are quite simple. And to be honest I want to begin with simple designs which are easy and work up to the more complex masterpieces.
I don’t think I realised until I was editing the photos and writing the captions that I had used so much Barry M! But they do have some really fab colours to choose from!
So here they are:
Isn’t the thumb nail sweet! I found this nail art quite fun, to watch as the different layer began to make sense to the overall look, I walked into the kitchen while waiting for the leaves to dry and my Mum said ‘ooo camouflage’, so when I showed her the final look she was pleasantly surprised!
Unlike last week I didn’t do a different design on the other hand, its just a big old ladybug party going on!
