Its been a while..

Hey guys! It sure has been a while since I posted on here, I hope you are all good and life is treating you well. A lot has been happening in my life at the moment which is why I haven’t been on here in a while but I am back and slowly getting motivated again which is good because I have missed blogging and missed chatting with you guys! So I thought I would kick it off with a haul because over the 5 months that I have been away I have still been shopping and thought I’d show you some of those purchases. Also… who doesn’t love a haul! I thought I’d keep this a beauty only haul otherwise we may be here a while..

All of the above are new products to me apart from the L’Oreal Eyeliner which is a firm favourite of mine and has been for a while so if you are looking for a new eyeliner, this ones a good’un. I am going to do reviews of these in more detail, especially the Charlotte Tilbury Eyeshadow Palette because its just dreamy!

Current Beauty Wishlist!

Hey guys! I hope you have had a good week and enjoying your Saturday so far! I thought that I would share with you all the makeup items that I am currently lusting over right now and if I could buy them all I most definitely would! Don’t forget to let me know what’s on your wishlist in the comments.

 

First up is the Anastasia Beverley Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette. This is just a stunning palette and the shades are right up my street! I have never tried anything from ABH but I am always hearing good things about their products.

Next is the By Terry Ombre Blackstar Eyeshadow in the shade Ombre Mercure. I have had my eye on this for a long time now and very nearly bought it last year. Once again I have never tried anything from the By Terry range but always hear about these eyeshadow sticks, plus this shade is absolutely beautiful!

Now it wouldn’t be a wishlist without some Charlotte Tilbury products and this Luxury Eyeshadow Palette in the shade Golden Goddess is just gorgeous! Whenever I am at a CT counter I always swatch this and I think out of all of these, this might be my next ‘big’ makeup purchase!

Yes, I am obsessed with Charlotte Tilbury and this is the super pretty Instant Look in a Palette. This palette is actually limited edition so I probably wont ever get my hands on one but a girl can dream.. I love how natural all the shades are in this palette and it would be perfect to take away on a mini break because you literally have everything you need all in one place!

Ahh Hourglass, another brand that I have never tried but really, really want to and not just because the products look amazing but the packaging is also spot on! This is the Ambient Lighting Edit Palette which I was also so close to buying last month but my responsible side kicked in and persuaded me not to (damn you responsible adult Rachel)!

Finally we have some makeup brushes from Spectrum. These are the White Marbleous 12 piece set and they are SO pretty! I have had my eye on these for a few months now and when I received one of their eyeshadow brushes in my February Birchbox, I wanted this set even more! The eyeshadow brush is so soft I can only imagine how soft all these are, especially the face brushes!

So that is it for this post! I hope you enjoyed it. Let me know whats on your wishlist at the moment and also if you have tried any of the above products!

See you soon!

The Makeup That’s In My Dreams!

Hello lovelies! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I absolutely loved this weekend! On Friday night I went out with my family for my cousins birthday and had such a lovely night! We went for a delicious meal, then we went for drinks and it was just so lovely I want to rewind and do it all over again! What did you get up to? 🙂

So before I get carried away with boring you all about my weekend I am going to get into the post which is, of course, all about the makeup I dream of aka my makeup wishlist! I have done one of these before but it was 8 months ago, so I thought I’d do another seeing as though I have rather a lot on my wishlist at the moment!

My Top 3 High End Eyeshadow Palettes <3

Hey guys! It is now time for me to share My Top 3 High End Eyeshadow Palettes with you as I love eyeshadows, especially a gorgeous high end palette as the eyeshadows are always amazing quality and the packaging is always super pretty! I posted about my top 3 drugstore ones a few days ago which you can find HERE. These aren’t in any particular order, I love them all the same <3! So lets jump straight in..

IMG_2442

Charlotte Tilbury is definitely my favourite high end makeup brand as she knows exactly what people want in makeup! This palette is absolutely gorgeous and so is the packaging! This creates such a gorgeous pink smokey eye look which is perfect for all seasons as you can keep it nice and light with the two top shades, or really smoke it out and include the two bottom shades as well! The glitter is absolutely amazing and looks good over any eyeshadow, not just these. I was going to say that this is a real feel good product for me, which it is, but all CT products are for me as they are just absolutely amazing and really make me feel good when I wear them! I have done a full post about it HERE!

IMG_2448

This is my newest high end palette and I am so glad I took the plunge to get this! It has the most beautiful collection of shades that can be worn alone or blended together. They are all really pigmented and last all day. This palette is perfect for me as it has the pink and nude shades in which are my absolute favourite. You can create so many looks with this palette, so if you are looking into buying one of the Naked palettes I would go for this one! I have done a full post on this palette as well HERE!

IMG_2451

I know this isn’t a proper palette but it does have four different shades in, so I class it as one and I wear this a lot more than some of my other ‘proper’ palettes. Like a normal palette these can all be worn alone or together to create a super pretty pink smokey eye, yes pink smokey eyes are my favourite ;)! For such a little product it has everything as the lightest shade is perfect for inner corner highlight and could also be used for a brow bone highlight as well. When I’m not feeling a smokey eye I really like to mix the two left shades together and it create a gorgeous dark pinky purple shade which will be perfect for Autumn and Winter as it is also nice and sparkly (I also love a good sparkle in my eyeshadows)!

IMG_2446

So they are my top 3 high end palettes! I use all of these on a regular basis, even for work as they are all so pretty and have shades in for work or for an evening out. I hope you enjoyed this post!

What is your favourite high end palette or eyeshadow?

Wedding Makeup Look <3

Hello lovelies! How are you doing? I have decided to do a Wedding Makeup post today as it is wedding season and also my best friend is getting married on Saturday so I have been on Pinterest constantly looking for some inspiration. My bridesmaid dress is a light pink so I went for a pink smokey eyeshadow look and kept things quite natural.

Products Used:

  • Oriflame Giordani Gold Long Wear Mineral Foundation – Porcelain
  • Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer – Ivory
  • Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
  • Estee Lauder Pure Colour Shadow – Pink Zinc
  • Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette – The Vintage Vamp
  • Soap & Glory Supercat Liquid Eyeliner
  • Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
  • Sleek Face Form Contouring & Blush Palette
  • Maybelline Master Shape Brow Pencil – Dark Blonde
  • Mac Cremesheen Lipstick – Creme Cup

I kept it super simple and natural with everything as something too heavy wouldn’t fit in with the whole day. For my eyes I used my new Estee Lauder Eyeshadow all over the lid. I then used the top right shade from the Charlotte Tilbury Vintage Vamp palette for some definition.

IMG_1883

I hope you enjoyed this post! I’m not sure if this is the look I will go for on the day as I have a few in mind but we shall soon see! I don’t have much time to decide! 😉 Let me know what you think of this look in the comments as I would love to know!

See you soon!

My Top 3 Blushes!

Hello beauties! I hope you are well and having a lovely week! I am absolutely loving blusher at the moment! I went through a stage where I just wasn’t bothered about blush at all but in the last year I have been drawn to them when shopping and just want to buy them all! 😉 So I thought I would share 3 of my favourite blushers with you!

IMG_1747IMG_1749

Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Blusher – First Love

IMG_1750

This was one of my first Charlotte Tilbury products and it is absolutely stunning! It is a blush and a highlight all in one – what more could you want! Both the Blush and the Highlight are perfect for any occasion especially everyday as they are both super natural. I have done a full post on this HERE!

MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush – Springsheen

IMG_1751

This blush is super pretty! It is quite shimmery but still great to wear for everyday as I use it for work most days. You can also wear this as an eyeshadow – who doesn’t like a two in one product!? Full post HERE!

Benefit Blush – Hervana

IMG_1753

I love this blush! Not only does it look pretty it also smells amazing too! This is another super natural blush as they are my favourite kind of blushes as you can probably tell! You also get the cute little brush with this one which is great for on the go! Full post HERE!

So they are my top 3 blushes! Let me know what your fave blusher is as I am loving them at the moment and you can never have too many blushes right?! 😉

I hope you enjoyed this post! See you soon!

Haul Time!

Hello lovelies! I hope you had a fantastic weekend! I have another haul today as I have bought a few things over the past few weeks and would like to share them with you. A few of the items are things that have wanted to try for quite a while now so I am rather excited!

IMG_1743

  • Colab Dry Shampoo Rio – I have been wanting to try this dry shampoo for a while now but wanted to use up my Batiste first. So many people recommended this so I am excited to try it. One thing I can say though is that it smells gorgeous!
  • Colab Dry Shampoo London Mini – How cute is this little bottle! I thought it would be perfect to keep in my handbag for on the go!
  • Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner Pen – This is my favourite liquid eyeliner so it’s not a new purchase but I wanted to include it because I love it!
  • Dorothy Perkins Wide Fit Pumps – I bought these for work because now we are getting nearer to summer I wanted something a bit cooler and these are super pretty. They are also from Dorothy Perkins ‘Wide Fit’ Collection which is amazing because I always struggle to find pumps like these that are comfy.
  • Elastoplast Disney Princess Plasters – I had to buy these! Who doesn’t want Disney Princess plasters! I always get blisters on the back of my heels when I buy new shoes so until I wear them in I will have to wear a Disney Princess plaster everyday – what a shame 😉
  • Charlotte Tilbury Eyes To Mesmerise Norma Jean – It’s no secret that I love Charlotte Tilbury products so I am super excited to try this eyeshadow!

So that is everything that I have bought recently. I will be doing separate posts on them to let you know my thoughts. Have you tried any of the above? Let me know in the comments 🙂

I hope you enjoyed this post!

See you soon ❤
