Festival makeup

Hello my lovelies, how are you all? At festivals glitter is your best friend and the bolder the makeup the better, nothing is to much! So this year i went to a local festival near me called latitude and had the time of my life. Comment below if you went to a festival, if so which one. I camped there for 4 days and this was one of my looks i hope you all enjoy.

For this makeup as there is alot of glitter its best to start with the lips and eyes. Bit of a weird order but i found it worked best. So for the eyes i primed them with my mac pro long wear concealer amd set them with my translucent powder. Then i put a burnt orange in my crease and created a wing with my maybelline 24hr colour tattoo in the shade endless purple, bit of a random colour i know but it made the blue pop so i went with it. Over the top of this i used one of my strictly pigments in sky blue to set it. After the face we will come back to the eyes. 

Next i did the lips i outlined them and filled them in with the same maybelline colour tattoo as it is a cream eyeshadow the glitter sticks to it i used this as an alternative as i didnt want to use glue on my lips. I covered my lips with dark blue glitter also from a strictly set making sure to be carefull not to slip, as im not a fan of a blue moustache. I then cleaned the edges up using my foundation. 

Now for the fun bits i used my rimmle natural bronzer on the perimeter of my face focusing on my non existent cheek bones, then went over it with my shimmer bronzer from my makeup revolution palette in golden sugar; from the same palette i took the highlighting blush shade and the purple highlighter and mixed them together to create a blush/highlight. For more highlight because my life goal is to blind people, i took the white highlight from that palette and put it in all the places id previously placed the concealer, so pretty much everywhere to be honest. Then i took my body shop roll on glitter and placed that on my cheek bones and a tiny amount on my nose. I didnt want to have coloured glitter on my face as the eyes and lips where the main attraction, however this glitter does have a blue and purple reflect.

Now back to the eyes i placed the orange i used in my crease on the lower lash line and then covered that in the blue pigment, this turned out a aqua colour however you sadly cant see it from the pictures. For the inner corner i used the same white hightlight and a bit if the glitter. Finally i coated my lashes in my maybelline lash sensational mascara then filled in my eyebrows like normal and that was it. If you want a more indepth routine of the brows i have a blog post on it. 

Thankyou all for reading, i wont be active for a while as im away for another week with no wifi (this post was pre uploaded) but have a lovely week love you all thankyou!

Get Unready With Me

Hello my lovelies how are you all? So to start with WE HIT 400 I KNOW RIGHT WHATT! Litterally couldn’t believe i could ever hit 200 hundred let alone 400 its insane! I just wanted to say thankyou so much im so grateful for all you lovely people you mean alot to me even it might sound silly. Ill stop blabbering and get into it i just wanted to say thankyou and bring on 500 woo.. im kidding but im trying the whole optomism gets you what you want thingy so yeah woo. Awkward sorry. 

Anyways this is my get unready with me hope you enjoy reading. By the way if you have any questions or suggestions please feel free to comment because i try and sound like i know what im doing but i kind of dont. Oh well here it goes..

First i start with my simple kind to skin cleansing wipes these are heaven for me on i just keep them by my bed and rub off my makeup when even i feel like my skin is going to errupt. 

Next i properly cleaned my face with my vichy normaderm deep gel cleanser to get rid of all the nasty spots trying to peak through. This is my holy grail i have used it for 2 years and it has never let me down! I have a whole cupboard dedecated to skincare and time after time i have come back to this because i know it doesn’t hate me, and my skin doesn’t hate it. Bit off topic but guys imagine how much food we could buy with all the money we’ve spent on skincare we could have a feast, im not even kidding this must happen. 

As i had been doing a challenge that day on a full face of eyeshadow with eyeshadow as foundation and everything!  (It was terrifying not gonna lie) my face was feeling pretty blocked up so i put on a face mask using all natural ingrediants, to try and dampen the impact.

For the chocolate face mask..

1tsp cacao powder

1/2 tsp coconut oil 

And however much water you want to reach your desired consistency.

Then leave for 10 mins

DISCLAIMER: If you have oily skin skip the coconut oil and just use water.

I didn’t feel like i needed more moisture so i skipped that step but if i do i use coconut oil by melting it in my hand and them massaging it all over my face. However under my eyes i did use some Nourishing cream from Neals Yard to make the black demons under my eyes dissapear, ok fade its not that much of a miracle worker i wish they would dissapear though, that would be helpful. 

Then i do my teeth im not going to explain this because im hoping you all clean your teeth (please do if you dont!) At the moment iam attempting to whiten my teeth and i read that using 1/2  a tsp of baking soda (NOT BAKING POWDER IT DOES NOTHING, TRUST ME) for 14 days does the trick so i will keep you updated on any changes and how reliable it is after ive finished.

Finally i finish of with some lip balm this is a snoopy carmex it is utterly adorable and stops my lips looking like a dried rasin, but any lip balm will do.

Thankyou again for 400 followers means the world hope you enjoyed this blog sorry it was quite short, but didn’t want to bore you all. 

Love you, abi xx

Casual Glam GRWM

Hello my lovelies, how are you all? Sorry it feels like ages since i’ve sat down and written a blog for you guys last time i did it i was doing my GCSEs now its thr summer holidays! Woo i love summer ice creams, beaches, parties, the clothes i mean guyss whats not to love comment your favorite season below. Anyways this is my current casual glam makeup it’s kind of my everyday makeup but i dont wear full makeup everyday if i do this is what i go for. 

So first i start with my naked face my skin isn’t perfect but oh well its a working progress ive just changed my diet if that works (fingers crossed it does) i could do a in depth post on that? After washing and moisturizing my skin i move onto foundation. For foundation i use Urban Decay Naked skin foundation in shade 1. 

I use 2-3 pumps of foundation all together depending on the coverage i need i normally build it up in the area i need most coverage. Then i go over my blemishes with mac prolong wear concealer. I then colour correct under mt eyes with an orangey concealer from the morphe 15  concealer pallete, with the same palette i also cream contour. Then set my face with my lancome face powder. Next i move onto the brows i know bit of a random order i fill them in with Anastasia dip brow in dark brown and spoolie them through.I think i probably said that in the wrong terms but sounds kind of cool. 

Next i move on to my beloved rimmel natural bronzer in the shade sun bronze and define my cheeks more with the shiny bronze shade in my makeup revoltion palette golden sugar. And highlight with the white highlight from the same palette. For my blush i take the pink shade in my lancome eye set box thingy (rubbish description but you’ll see it in the photo) 

Finally i move onto my eyes i use my new shades from inglot that i am in love with! I take the shade 157 (the red one) on my urban decay eyeshadow brush and buff this into the crease applying more until i reach the desired level of pigmentation. Although it anmoyingly doesnt show in the photos my crease was as red as the swatch i did on my arm. Next i take the golden orange shade number 55 in the outer third of my eye and on the middle third the shade 463 the softer gold creating an ombre effect with the peachy gold shade 9 in my inner corner. I finish with several coats of my maybelline luscious lash sensational mascara. And the same high light i used on my face to highlight my eyebrows. Before applying mascara to my bottom lashes i apply that red shade on the outer third on my lower lash line fading it towards the inner corner. 

(Swatches in order of shade use) 

As this is casual glam i normally finish my lips off with my snoopy carmex. Thankyou all for reading my next blog post will be between a tea party get ready with me a festival makeup look or a full face challenge video if you have any prefrences please let me know, because im a rubbish decider. Thankyou for reading have a lovely evening and week.

Love abi xx
