Makeup addict

April 12, 2018

I literally cannot go shopping and NOT buy something makeup or beauty related!  Whether it's a brush, skincare or eyeshadow - I love to buy new makeup and test out different products.  I'll buy high-end, drugstore and products and brands I've never heard of just to have something new to play with.


My favourite foundation is Double Wear by Estée Lauder.  I wear anything between Shell and Ecru - depending on the time of year.  To be honest these days it's mostly Shell as I've gone really pale for some reason.  It's a smooth, lovely foundation that has great coverage and lasts all day.  It's also the most expensive I own.


I own about 25 eyeshadow pallettes and about 30 different lipsticks.  I love spending time watching YouTube vidioes - usually NikkieTutorials - to get inspiration, tips and tricks on how to properly do my makeup and get the best out of my products.  I love dark eyes with a pop of colour accompanied by dark, bold lips.


Show me some new highlighter and I am your new best friend.  I love a good glow and I love to play with different ones whenever I can!  My current favourite is a four colour pallette from SLEEK makeup that I got in a party box back at Christmas.  It's really similar to this one from their website and I would highly recommend it!


Some of my favourite makeup looks I have done so far...

Dark eyes and purple lips

I thouroughly enjoyed this look, being able to really play with some colour and matching the purple lip lacquer, which I have never used before by MUA Cosmetics.  This was worn on a day out at the London Harry Potter studios.


NikkieTutorials inspired

I followed her Anti-Valentines video - skipping the dark lipstick because I wasn't feeling it that day!


Awards ceremony

I was invited to an awards ceremony with work a few months ago and I went with this glam look for the event!



Following the amount of practicing I have been doing, I decided I really wanted to challenge myself and do my own Bridesmaid makeup at my best friend's wedding...


I am so proud of all of these makeup looks.  These have all been really recent and for me they have been a massive achievement!


I love doing my makeup and I have so many things I want to try in the future.  Looking for as many masterclasses and makeup lessons I can get and I cannot wait to start posting about them for you all to read!
