FOTD: Birthday Edition

4 Sep

Hello lovelies!

Quick FOTD for you. The 31st of August was my 19th birthday, and the night before I went out with my friends (before I felt so poorly that I left at 10.30) and decided to go glam on the make-up. To some this probably is everyday wear, but the sparkle made me feel all pretty!

I used my Stila ‘In the Light’ Palette and my Topshop Lipstick in ‘Whimsical’.

The Difference Make-Up Can Make

12 Aug

Hello lovelies!

This post is kind of a mix of an FOTD and a bit of motivation and inspiration.
For a few years now, I have loved make-up. Not just buying it, but applying it, wearing it, seeing it, looking at it, appreciating it. It’s kind of a funny love affair actually.

FOTD: Coral Ambition!

26 Apr

Hello lovelies!

Hope you are all having/had a great Friday! It’s the weekend, wooo!

Quick FOTD for you! The UK have been having some kind of freak April heatwave, and it was actually 20C earlier this week! I decided to whack out the spring colours while I had the chance, and also I gave my lower lashes a break. I always think it makes a nice change to do a look where you only use mascara on your upper lashes! 🙂


The lipstick is Topshop’s ‘Ohh La La’ and I put on a Stila Smudge Stick in ‘Stargazer’ on my lashline.

Hope you’re having some great weather too!

Have a wonderful weekend, I’m currently trying to start work on two essays for Uni that are due in on Monday and still get an early night, as I have a 6.30 start tomorrow :S Wish me luck!

Concealaholic: Bags be gone!

3 Mar

So, I’m ashamed to say that a year ago I never used concealer. Yes, I know, how did I live? How did I go out in the mornings? Well, in retrospect, I’m glad I didn’t, because it allowed me to learn to like my face without make-up. I’m not ashamed to post my non-makeup eye look on here because I learnt to do just that. Here’s a little before shot. Excuse the extremely unruly eyebrows and greasy skin (I just moisturised!)

However, this glorious invention has since entered my life, and I’ve been searching for the perfect budget concealer for a while. And I think I’ve found the perfect combination.

In this picture, I am wearing the following products.
Gosh Foundation Primer in Classic
Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation in 103: True Ivory
Miss Sporty Liquid Concealer in 001: Light (applied first with a brush, this is a heavy-duty concealer)
Bourjois Bio-Detox Organic Anti-Puffiness Concealer(phew!) in No. 2- Medium (dabbed gently with my ring finger)
Collection 2000 Pressed Powder in 10: Daydream
Barry M Kohl Pencil in White (along my waterline)
Stila Eyeshadow in Sandra (unfortunately discontinued, but any champagne colour would work!)
Gosh Haute Precision Mascara in Black

Hopefully, this finished eye look gives a better look than the natural one, but make-up obviously shouldn’t be changing your face entirely, it should just enhance your features naturally on an everyday basis.


(Just a quick note, these pictures were taken 10 minutes apart, with the same facial expression and in the same lighting and place. I find it really obvious when companies take before and after pictures that have been tweaked with lighting changes, or airbrushing!)

If anyone has any suggestions or comments about any of their concealing products or any of mine, then I’d love to hear! Also, if anyone would like a review on a certain product, then just leave me a comment!

Happy weekend, and don’t forget to smile!
Christie 🙂
