12 Days of Natsmas: Get ready with me – Christmas Party (10)

I did my face Wednesday night for my friend Christmas Party and thought youd like to know which products I used to achieve this look:

In order of application I used:

New Look – finishing spray – (I know you’re meant to use it at the end but I do it at the beginning aswell as I read an article from a pole dancer saying that’s what she does to make her makeup last aalllll night)

Seventeen Stay Time Long Wear Primer – It stinks but as long as you apply it quickly before it dries it should last

Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation – Its just a nice medium coverage foundation which amount wise has lasted a long time

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer – It does the job, great for red pigment but not so great for shielding spots and dark circles – concealer is a tricky one for me

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer – This is great for dark circles and does help with spots aswell.

Baby Powder – yes I used this as a baking powder – mostly to hide my dark circles even more – It’s a very tiring time of year!

Eyebrows – I always use a very old combination eye shadow for this because I haven’t found anything to be as good

Collection Sheer Loose Powder – This is meant to set your face – I’m not sure whether that is true but for some reason it does have the tendency to make you a bit orange. I still use it everyday anyway as it seems to make your face all one colour at least

MUA Pro-Base Eye Primer – Does the job very well actually and creates the perfect base for your eyes – minimal smudge

Eyeshadow – For this look I used a range of colours from both The Active Cosmetics Interchangeable eye pallet and W7’s “The Big Five”.

L’Oreal Super Liner – I used this just to finish off my eyes in order to add a bit or drama

Maybelline Lash Sensational – I used this instead of false lashes in the end and to be honest it gave the same effect while looking a whole lot more natural – this mascara is definitely one of my favourites.

Collection Highlight and Sculpt – I used this for my bronzer and highlighter as it’s a very subtle yet buildable highlight and I perfect sculpting bronzer.

MUA Lipstick _ I lost this colour that night and cannot remember the exact colour although when looking online I believe it is shade 1.

Complete the look with some final finishing spray and you’re all set to Rock around the Christmas Tree

All of these products are very affordable and sourced from high street shops which just shows you don’t have to spend a lot to get a lot.

Hope you enjoyed it, a video should be uploaded to the YouTube Channel soon of this if you want to see it in action

My Top Beauty Tips (that actually work!)

Good Day my lovely ladies, HAPPY VALENTINES DAY! Also Happy Birthday to me as the world was blessed with my presence all those years ago when I pooped out at 8 pm on the 14th of February…soz mum. Today I wanted to share with you my all time top beauty tips that actually work and I use most of them on the daily! They just make life  a whole lot easier for those make up fanatics among us. And as It’s valentines day I know a lot of you will wanna get all glammed up so you can spend time with BAE… be that your “special friend”, friends or simply yourself. I will be spending the day with my family as it is my birthday but tbh if it wasn’t i would probably be spending valentines day eating chocolates and watching rom-coms whilst trying to get over the horrible cold i have atm. Anyway down to business:

TIP NUMBER ONE: (the most well known) 

Cutting up your fake eyelashes before applying. 

So many of you may have heard this tip before but im here to tell you IT ACTUALLY WORKS. Those pesky eyelashes you buy are always way too long which makes them even harder to put on than it already is. BUT, if you trim them to your desired length and then cut them into 1/2’s, 1/3’s or even 1/4’s you’ll find it much easier to put on your eye. This is because you can put them in the correct place easier which means flirtatious fluttering eyelashes for all – so even if you dont have a date you soon will do!

TIP NUMBER TWO: (the clever one)

Painting under your fake nails

Now the title can be a bit misleading but all it means it, before applying fake nails (if you do them at home) paint a similar colour on your nail first because then if they fall off (which they always bloody do!) no one needs to know because unless they look really blooming close no one will even flicker their voluminous eyelashes.

TIP NUMBER THREE: (the lazy one)

Baby Powder Everything!


Baby or Talc Powder is literally God’s gift for lazy people like me, it can be used for anything. You may know its great for “baking” (whatever the hell that is) but it can also be used really well for contouring so you can get dem defined cheekbones (or collorbones or thighs…or whatever the next contour trend is). PLUS: (A CHEEKY HAIR TIP) it’s also a great alternative to dry shampoo. If its been a while since your hairs seen the warmth of a shower simply rub a bit of baby powder in and no one will know. Just make sure you really rub in a small bit or your hair will go grey! I havent bought dry shampoo for about 5 years because of this – it’s amazing!

TIP NUMBER FOUR: (the utterly fabulous one)

Cheap Makeup


This is my Valentines gift for you my lovelies! Not many people know but a lot of makeup brands come from the same company and so if you order makeup from the primary company it is often discounted as it never hits the shops. For Example REVOLUTION (Makeup Revolution London) is owned by TAM Beauty (https://www.tambeauty.com/en/gb/Home.aspx) so hop down there for all the discounted makeup your little heart could desire and treat yourself this valentines day!.

There you go my darlings, I hope you have a fantastic Valentines Day no matter what you’re doing (please do let me know as a little birthday treat cause Im a nosy cow) at least now you can look great whilst doing it and can upload a flawless selfie (not that you need any of these tips for that you beautiful beings), love you lots!
