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