Make Up Of The Day | Fresh For Spring

I’ve got another GRWM up on my YouTube channel! I wanted to share it here on my blog so nobody misses it. It’s a super duper easy peasy, fresh, girly, bright and peachy makeup look which I really really love. I used half the amount of products that I usually use, and I’m really happy with that. Over spring I like to make sure my skin can breathe and I like to leave a little bit of leeway for a tan (if it’s sunny enough!). I really hope you guys enjoy the video.

Products used:
Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation in SB3
MAC Studio Fix Powder + Foundation
Benefit Gimme Brow
Benefit Hoola
Make Up Store Touch Of Peach Blush
Naked Palette - Shade: Creep
NYX Jumbo Eyeliner in Milk
Rimmel Scandal-Eyes Mascara
NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Descanso

What do you think of this makeup look? Are you subscribed to my YouTube channel?

Lots of love,

21st Birthday Wishlist

Okay, maybe this is slightly premature, but with my 21st birthday coming up at the end of May, I wanted to make a little wishlist with some of the things I’m dying to pick up. My dad asked me what I wanted for my birthday last week, and it really got me thinking! We’ve settled on going for a big shopping trip in the daytime, and a family dinner at an Italian in the evening! I’m getting so excited now!

The things I’ve been most craving for the last few months are the set of Calvin Klien underwear which I’ve seen in Urban Outfitters. These sets are to die for, and I can’t seem to escape them popping up on my instagram feed every single day! Some new skincare is probably in order, and the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser has been on my radar for a while, as has the Sanctuary Spa Charcoal Mask. In terms of makeup, the Balm’s Nude-tude palette has been tempting me for the longest time, and my MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter ran out a while back, so I definitely need another one! A few new Sigma brushes wouldn’t go amiss, and neither would RealTechniques’ Miracle Sponge! Rosie For Autograph’s Eyeshadow Quad has also been taking the bloggersphere by storm, so it’d be a crime to miss out on that one! Then, of course, my most wanted item at the moment; the NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks because they are just fabulous, amazing, and all over YouTube!

What do you think of this wishlist? Have I missed anything off?

Lots of love,

Review | MAC Lipstick in Whirl

I have been obsessed with Whirl by MAC since I was first told “I’m sorry, that one’s sold out”. There’s something about shades that aren’t in stock that make them all the more appealing, and you start to consider if £78 off eBay + £19.99 shipping from another country is really all that expensive(!?). Nope? Just me?
Anyway, I was just on my weekly ‘accidental’ visit to my local MAC store, when I happened to ask if they had Whirl, and by some divine miracle, they did! I basically sprinted to the checkouts to make sure it was mine (and then lived on beans on toast for the rest of the week).

Whirl is beautiful matte shade, which I initially thought was a lot nude-r than it actually is. If I had to describe the shade, I’d say it’s a rich, warm, caramel-rose. It’s a perfect match to the much loved, much coveted Whirl lip pencil. Made infamous by Kylie Jenner, this shade has been sold out pretty much everywhere for the longest time, but I can personally understand the hype. I’ve worn this lipstick every day for the past week or so!

It’s comfortable on the lips. For someone who has really terrible, dry, cracked lips all-year round, I’m always wary of how matte lipsticks are going to treat me. Luckily, though, MAC mattes always deliver. They apply creamily and softly (it can help to apply a thin layer of lipbalm first!) and really do look perfectly matte. This lipstick is also beyond awesome for overdrawing your lips (very Kylie Jenner!), and once you’ve got the art mastered, you won’t have to splurge £500 in lip injections…yes I checked.

This is another winner from MAC, and I’ve added it to my ever growing MAC lipstick collection, AKA my pride and joy. For me, £15.50 has become ‘the price’ for lipstick, and I don’t consider it to be fiendishly expensive anymore. The shade is so flattering, sits comfortably and stays for absolutely aaaages. I can’t really find anything negative to say about my new love affair, which is absolutely always a good sign!

Have you tried a lipstick from MAC’s matte lipstick collection? What do you think of Whirl?

Lots of love,
