Look of the day!

Well as I thought the first outfit//look of the day went well I will try again, so ……. here we are going et voila! As I currently cannot do much yet with my back I am unable to move about so I thought I would have a play about with my make up and do things that I keep meaning to do. Here is my day 🙂

PicMonkey Collagex

Just like yesterday I was wearing a lace top, this time in a cream colour. Its a beautiful sunny day and you can wear this with any top as an overlay – I believe that I got this from Primark for less than a tenner which is always a bargain. I haha er hmm am wearing the same trousers as I did yesterday but theyre so comfy as I don’t want much restriction on my back at the moment they are perfect.

PicMonkey CollagelipThe shade of lipstick that I am wearing above is the Barry M 156 colour, it looks like a matte tone but it does have a shimmer. It is beautiful to put on to your lips and you only need to put it on a few times over your lips. Unfortunately in my next photo I didnt really apply it properly plus I was a bit all over the place on these strong meds haha, so I highly apologise. But this lipstick is a definite purchase, I forgot all about it. I definitely prefer the darker shades to lighter shades I have now decided and agreed…………… with myself.

PicMonkey CollagessHaha!! look at my chubby little hamster cheeks!! Anyway this is the shade, I think it’s beautiful for all seasons and weathers and of course it would leave an amazing mwah mark on someone 😉

PicMonkey CollagegardenAs my bedroom is on the ground floor of my house I decided to open my french windows and have some lovely air going through my room and it was great just to sit there, look out into the garden (this is only a fraction of it by the way lol – NOT boasting!!) and to see all the shades of green and of course the beautiful sunshine!! Mum suddenly shouted from the other end that she saw loads of frogs spawn in the pond and look LOADS!! Finally every day these 2 chubby big pigeons come into our garden, okay they may not be the same but they’re always two chubby ones. I need a name for them, theyre so funny to watch and they stand around guarding the garden. Finally my shadow, Ive got my mega baggy trousers on but look how amazingly long my legs are, ive got short legs so im really jealous of my shadow right now!

PicMonkey Collage5My eye shadow today is from a a palette from ELF makeup which I will be showing you later, as well as using a sprinkle of white dusting powder in the corner of my eyes. The eyeliner is the “felt tip eyeliner” from Collection 2000 and the eyebrow pencil is from the MUA Luxe range (mid brown). Love the colour of my eyes not too subtle but just nice for a day, my eyes again look a bit droopy because of the meds so I apologise I look a bit out of it and sad lol!

PicMonkey CollagexsHere’s the eye shadow that I used, as you can see it gives you a step by step guide as to how to do it…. the left side of the palette is for the day and the right is for the dark but of course its great to mix them all up!! Below is the Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner in Purple which I have added to the top of my eyes as well, I also have this in aqua and dark blue as well. Finally I spent a few hours of my day cleaning or starting to clean my make up brushes uses the ELF make up brush remover.

That was my day……. not a lot but hey!

Daily Essentials.

I thought I would write about what make up and products I use on a daily basis (or when I can be bothered to wear make up, which at the moment is not that often), hopefully this interests you and if you are interested I also hope that you look into buying some of these products 🙂 – first of all, I would like to apologise for my photos – damn sunshine going in! haha.

These are my bare essentials that I need on a daily basis, my Nair Hair sensitive removal facial cream is a part of my daily life. As I have PCOS I am very wary of extra hair on my face, it can come across as darker than my blonde hair and I hate it! I am forever conscious of this and I found this cream for £1 in poundland, I was surprised when I was buying the same stuff in Superdrug for £5!! That leads me swiftly on to Superdrug, I believe that they are my ultimate favourite drug store, if Soap and Glory was sold here I wouldn’t shop anywhere else. Their facial cleansing wipes in Camomille are just delicious (and no I don’t eat them!) they are a gorgeous scent, make your face feel so fresh afterwards. The cotton wool is always on offer usually 2 for 1 or buy one get one free, which is always the best. Finally my last photo is me thinking, bugger how am I going to put all these in the photos haha!

Facially I use 4 products, I do have other ones that I use but these are my fall to items and the ones that I use the most. Deep Action products again are Superdrug, they have a lovely scent, they both leave your face feeling very smooth and refreshed and of course……. clean. St Ives deep pore cleansing is not only used in the shower when your pores are “open” but also afterwards, I love how although the cream is soft the beads allow for a rough texture to take away all of your dead skin. The last is the Clearasil Superfruit Refreshing Pads, wow these are cold when they go onto your face and it definitely awakens your skin, fresh fruity smell and takes away all of your lovely make up which you have spent ages putting on.

My skin is all over the place (all of the time, proper combination skin going on here!). I found the Look Beauty Skin Fix Kit in again Superdrug and to be honest I was amazed by the cute packaging. I have used it once or twice and it is my backup for getting some extra colour on my cheeks, it includes foundation, concealer and highlighter. Although the brush is not that brilliant it is effective in making sure your skin does look lovely. My favourite favourite concealer product is definitely without a doubt the ELF corrective concealer, the shades are yellow, blue, green and pink and each colour covers all your skin flaws. I am often finding myself using the green and blue to help conceal my beautifully red skin haha!! I highly recommend.

As many other bloggers love it, the Rimmel Stay  Matte pressed powder is just ridiculously good, I have it in the Silky Beige and it just sets your face perfectly. It is not too overpowering, too dusty and it just allows for an oily face person like me to not be so shiny! My only concealer that I use apart from the ELF one shown in previous photo is ELF All Over Stick, it smells great, the coverage is brilliant it comes in all different shades. I for the life of me because my room is a state cannot find my favourite foundation – Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid – which is the best, best for coverage, shade, smoothness etc etc. My second favourite is the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation, it is a bit shiny but I use it for those days I am not too keen on myself and finally the Mayebelline Dream Matte Mousse – delicious.

I really don’t often use blusher, I need to invest in watching more videos as to how to properly apply blusher for those extra chubby cheeks of mine! There are two that I have found B (vegan non animal testing product) – Glowing Shimmer Block Just Peachy and the Look Cheeky Trio. Although the Look product shows you how to do it all, I need someone to do it for me!!

First of all I highly apologise for the photos of this one, but you can clearly see how much I love the product on the left hand side – Elf Eyebrow Kit. Its just the best, its a cream and a powder which combines gives you amazing eyebrows – not to look like a HD brow tart but the still natural look. The second is the W7 Naked Nudes, I kept seeing everyone buy the NAKED Urban Decay and I thought 1. I for one cannot afford that, 2. I need to find a cheap alternative and this is what I found…… it’s perfect.

My favourite mascara of them all – Maybelline Colousal Cat’s Eyes – 1 coat and you’re done, its black, bold and effective! Elf Makeup Remover pen for when your little mistakes happy. Flirty Flick eyeliner pen by Look, is thick, bold and so easy to apply to your eyes and finally my favourite tweezers which I believe I got from Morrisons. The reason in which I have painted it red is because I have two of them, 1 is easier to use than the other and therefore I cant be bothered to keep finding the proper tweezer.

LIPSTICKS LIPSTICKS GET YOUR LIPSTICKS!!! My favourite make up product, 1 – Kate Moss – 107, 2, ELF Lip Exfoliator 3. ELF Moisturising Lipstick and finally Beauty UK lipstick…… there’s the swatch 🙂 enjoy.
