Who says you cant wear yellow? 

Hello ny lovelies so recently i was in kiko and i saw this bright yellow and i was just like i’ve got to have it its stunning! My mum said she didnt think it would suit me and it would look silly, so i decided to get it and prove her wrong and im so glad i did. 

This wont be everyones cup of tea as they say but hope you enjoy anyways.

First i started with my urban decay primer potion in eden then my bronzer as a transition colour. I blended tiki hut by makeup geek into my crease and half way across my lid. I darkened this with a dark orangy brown from my morphe 35W palette, then a cool toned brown colour on the outer corner of my eye. For the lid i took the shade 19 from kiko (the yellow), then a champagne high light in my inner corner also from kiko in the shade 16. To finish of i created a wing with my seventeen black eyeliner and tight lined my top and bottom lashes with a brown liner from maybelline in the shade matte occhi. After running tiki hut along my lower lash line i applied my lash sensational mascara and i was done. 

Thankyou for reading hope you enjoyed; oh and what would you like to see next a q&a or a challenge? 

Love abixx

 

Christmas party GRWM

​Hello my lovelies this is my christmas party look option 1, for those parties when glam is essential but you dont have much time. Im going to just skip straight into the tutorial hope you enjoy and MERRY CHRISTMAS, hope your tree is perfect and your lights dazzling that wasn’t meant to be an innuendo dont worry! 

AH i apologise for the very gross face and my pjs hope you enjoy anyways.

So first i started with the eyes and placed my naked skin concealer in fair all over my lids and set it as a base. I then put unexpected by makeup geek in my crease as my transition colour, on top of this i blended Nooner from the Naked 3 palette. for the main colour i put Makeup Geek’s Bitten in my crease and inner 3rd of my eye then smoked it out with a dark plum from my Morphe 35W palette keeping it concentrated in the outer crease. On the inner 3rd i placed a white reflective gold colour and put my gold glitter on top. 

Next i started doing my face i placed my natural collection green corrector on my spots which as you can see my face has decided on giving me loads of recently, lucky me right. Then i put my Morphe yellow corrector under my eyes. For foundation i used my Bareminerals original foundation and put this everywhere apart from underneath my eyes as its powder, then i use a smaller brush to cover blemishes with my foundation. Next i put my Naked skin concelear under my eyes on my nose and cupids bow then blend it out with my real techniques sponge. After setting this is i put on my Rimmel bronzer and then my Lancome blush. I attempted to slightly contour my nose which kind of failed but lets ignore that and move on to my highlight, so i tried a new makeup brand called Makeup Obsession called … and it is honestly stunning an the pigmentation is incredible! Anyways i placed it on my nose, cheek bones, tear duct brow bone and cupids bow. 

Next i did my brows like normal with my Anastasia dip brow in Dark brown and finished my eyes off with my lash sensational mascara. I also ran bitten along my lower lash line to tie the look together. My lips were very simple  just placed my Rimmel lip liner in shade 1 all over and left it at that.

Hope you enjoyed thankyou for reading love you all lots, have a lovely week.

Love you, abixx

Tarte Water foundation first impression 

​Hello my lovelies, how are you all? 

I feel like it has been a while since i’ve written a blog because it’s now autumn which is my favourite makeup time of the year, as it is the time where out inner goth can come out in vampy lips and smokey eyes. Then it’s HALLOWEEN comment below what you’re being i woulod love to hear your ideas. Anyways keep your eyes open for autumnal makeup looks and halloween ideas. 

Moving on to the real reason you all came, this is my tarte rainforest of the sea water foundation first impressions. Ive seen this product everywhere but haven’t managed to get my hands on it because i live in the UK and our makeup game is low. After unsuccessful Tarte and  Sephora orders i managed to find it at Roses beauty store, which is an online beauty shipping american makeup to the UK. 

Before i talk about the foundation i want to talk to you about the store, my product was delayed as the didn’t actually have it avaliable so it took a week to get to me plus normal shipping time, which was very annoying. However the customer service was amazing and did everything they could to get it to come to me quickly, so that was fine. Apart from the shipping problem i would really recommend this site,  and i know i will be using them again.

 The foundation… 

I had heard so much good things about this foundation but i was sadly let down for numerous reasons which was dissapointing since i had been wanting it since it came out. 

It was recommended to use a flat top brush with this foundation but after testing it out i found like many other people the beauty blender worked better. 

Excuse the lips i had lip stain on that day and well it stained! To try and build up the coverage i experimented with different amounts of product, but whatever i did it still looked cakey and fake. which was a selling point that it would look natural and flawless. You can’t see the cakeyness on camera but in person a lot of people did say it was obvious i was wearing foundation or commented i was wearing more than normal, which was not my desired look. If you can get away with minimum foundation this could work for you but if not i wouldnt risk buying this. 


I’m making it out to be totally awful and honestly it was for my skin but the packaging is truly beautiful, Tarte really outdid themselves on that like always. The colour match was also perfect to the description given on the Tarte website and they catered to all skin tones and undertones which was amazing as you have a wide range to pick from. I got the shade Fair Neutral which as you can probably guess is for vampire people with yellow and pink undertones. I really suggest paying alot of attention to the shade descriptions before you purchase because they are very accurate and detailed. 

Here is the foundation with the rest of my makeup on, as you can see from the picture it looks flawless and glowy, so i would suggest this for a photoshoot as it looks incredible. However up close in real life it still looks cakey and patchy, so avoid it if you have acne prone skin and need max coverage. Remember though guys everyone’s skin is different dont be put off the product by my review, just because it didn’t work for me doesn’t mean it wont for you! like the Loreal true match foundation does the same thing as the Tarte foundation and that is one of the most loved foundations, so if that works for you the Water foundation could to. 

Thankyou for reading, hope you have a lovely week; if you would like to see a tutorial on this look please let me know and i would be happy to do one. Oh and guys… WE GOT TO 800 FOLLOWERS and were 30 away from 900 how insane is that!! I literally can’t believe it thankyou SO SO much for sticking with me and reading my blog it means the world! Just wanted to say how amazing you all are and how shocked i am. 

Thankyou again, love abixx

DIY Pamper Night

Hey lovelys hope you’re a lovely weekend, today i wanted to bring you my pamper routine to give you easy quick diys, and inspire you to try out some. Now back me up who like me always plans pamper nights but realistically never gets round to them?  But, when i do i lovee them so i’m going to try and make time! This is a diy as personally i don’t want to go out and spend loads of fancy pamper products when ill probably use them 3 times a month, ok who am i kidding more like once but yeah, so i’ve made these all diys incase anyone wanted to recreate them. Ps guys they literally cost nothing so win win situation.

what i do remove makeup

bath ft music/youtube

wash hair, body and face

exfoliate face

face mask

hair mask

relax

moisturise face

spot treatment

So to start off i run a bath, while it’s running i remove my makeup and light some candles. Today i was using a candle from Tiger and coconut vanilla from Primark, but i always use different ones so chose your favourites. Then i added some bath salts from Westlab and Snape Maltings bath milk for bubbles, finally a bath bomb from lush i used Butterbear tonight.

Normally ill listen to music or watch youtube as it gives me something to do and youtube is my life so why not. Like normal i do the whole shave the legs, wash the hair and body routine with alot of bad singing. To clean my body i use my lush shower jelly i’m going to tell you a story so for the longest time i used to never use it because i couldn’t work it out. I used to try and wash myself with bits that i ripped off and they’d just fly every where it was so annoyingg but did make me laugh. I didn’t understand the hype till now when my friend told me how to use it and now i’m in love, so thanks Rosie. For my hair i use Garnier the marvellous transformer shampoo, and Pantene repair and protect conditioner. Can i just say this shampoo is a miracle worker it has sorted my damage hair out so well and fast, and you guys it smells amazing!

When i eventually get out of the bath i wash my face with my Vichy cleaners then exfoliate my face.

Exfoliator…

1tbs brown sugar (granulated not powder)

1tsp raw honey

Commonly people use baking powder DON’T i repeat DON’T this disrupts your natural skin barrier and acid mantle as it’s an alkaline causing your skin to become damaged, dry and acnefied.  Raw honey is an amazing antibacterial it fights spots and brightens your skin whilst holding the exfoliator together. The brown sugar is a soft exfoliate for sensitive skin therefore if your skin is really dry i don’t recommend this, alternatively you could use sea salt.

Then i move onto face masks; i love face masks but as my skin is so sensitive i never find ones gentle enough even lush ones break me out so i’ve just made it myself and it works dreams. This is so simple i have 2 that i use the most that actually really work. i’ve tried alot and these are my favourites. I’m also thinking of making a post on diy face masks please let me know if this would be helpful please.

1tbsp cocoa powder

1tsp water-add more if you find this isn’t enough

apply a thick layer and wash off after 20 mins

or…

A large dollop of raw honey

I’ve been over the benefits of raw honey so i wont bore you with that but if you want more information comment below. Cocoa powder is my favourite because it looks the best and leaves my face soft and smelling like chocolate. It prevents acne and fights ageing as is rich in antioxidants. I only tried this mask a couple of days ago and i fell in love, my spots literally shrunk within 20 mins.

while i leave this on i put on my hair mask

large dollop (depending on hair length) of coconut oil melted

rub it through the ends of your hair after towel drying

So i kind of have a egg phobia explaining why i don’t use a egg based mask but if you’re not weird like me and don’t mind raw egg, i’m ok with cooked egg just yeah not raw, then this is a good recipe

two egg yolks

1tsp coconut/olive/avocado oil

I relax while these are on or dance i’m not going to pretend i don’t but depends on my mood. When i’ve washed these off i moisturise my face with my Nivea men post shave balm you could use to coconut oil instead. Moisturising is the most important step for me as my skin is like the bluming Sahara desert. For my body i use body shop Shea body butter. When these have sunk in i put tea tree oil on my spots, then go and watch tele.

Thankyou for reading hope it wasn’t to long or boring have a lovely week and sorry for being unactive i’ve now finished my mocks so will be uploading more.
