Rave Inspired Makeup!

A few of my friends were going to 'Core blimey' the other weekend, so I thought I'd do makeup and nails rave style!! I did this whole look using non premium beauty brands as I wanted to also do an affordable look for everyone! 

I used benefit eye primer as I do not yet have another one to use. This is the only premium Beaty brand product I have used! Also this is the first time I have EVER put eyeliner on myself! So I know it's not perfect and needs perfecting so please don't be too hard on me :D 

These are the products I used: 

• Primer - Maybelline baby skin
• Foundation - Bourjois healthy mix (shade 53) 
• Concealer - Seventeen Phwoarr paint
• Eye primer - Benefit stay don't stray
• Highlighter - MUA champagne eyeshadow
• Eyeshadow - MUA Poptastic palette 
(Cool cyan, lime sizzle, pizzaz purple, cherry sour & jade jazz) 
• Eyeliner - Maybelline eye studio lasting dram gel liner
• Mascara - Rimmel extreme black volume mascara flash x10
• Brows - Barry M brow kit
• Cheeks - MUA mosaic blush (English rose) 
• Bronzer - Bourjois bronzing powder
• Lip liner - Avon glimmer stick (pink cashmere)
• Lipstick - Sleek lipstick palette (Jewel)

If I did this look again I would add silver gems to eyes to give it some sparkle :) If you would like to see any other makeup inspired posts comment below :D 

For my nails I wanted bright nails that would stand out so I found a glow in the dark top coat! & it did actually work!!! The only problem is I couldn't get a good picture of them :( To get the dots I used a dotting tool from Avon. Comes with dotting tool one end and brush the other end! 

Nail polish I used:
• Yellow - OPI : I just can't cope-acabana 
• Orange - OPI : Where did suzi's man-go? 
• Green - Barry M Jelly High Shine : Greenberry
• Blue - Barry M : Blueberry
• Pink - OPI : Kiss me I'm Brazilian 
• Purple - OPI : A grape fit
• Top coat - Essence : Glow In the dark

Superdrug & Boots Haul!

I got given some gift vouchers in my Christmas card off my auntie & uncle! So I just had to go on a bit of a shopping trip (any excuse) 

Firstly I went into Superdrug. I love their MUA makeup! It's a bargain at £1 a lipstick and it's really good quality. I picked up 2 new lipsticks in shade 9 & flamingo. These are brilliant because you also get a little lipgloss in the bottom of the lipstick. Two for the price of one! 
I also for a new eye shadow palette from the lux range. It has 3 colour eye shadows and a eye shadow primer for £4. Lastly I got a mosaic blusher in browns and bronzes for £2.50.  

I then decided to go into wilkinson's as they have started doing essence makeup! So I thought I'd buy a few more bits. I got all about nude eyeshadow. I love these colours and the way they apply and only £3.50. I also picked up one of their 3D eyeshadows. They are very shimmery and look really good for highlighting, which was £2.80. As some of you know I love doing my nails, and doing French nails can be a real challenge sometimes especially on your own nails so been I saw their French manicure brush I had to buy it and try it. And for only £1.60 how could I say no!

Finally I went into boots! I went in the other week and saw that Boujois were doing a deal if you spent £15 you got a free gift! So when I got my voucher it was a must!! I wanted to buy a foundation to wear everyday and then use my benefit foundation for nights out and special occasions. I got their healthy mix foundation in shade 53 light beige £9.99. Then I have been looking at their bronzers that look chocolate pieces! And I decided to get the bronzing powder and highlighter one! It comes in a cute little box that opens like a book! So cute at £7.99. I also picked up one of their eyeshadows in the shade extrait de fard. Which a lilac sparkly glitter. I used my boots points on this which was £6.99.

Then I went to the seventeen makeup where if you bought 2 products you got a free jewelled eye shadow palette. Which had 4 eyeshadows in it and a mirror! Their is an electric blue, brown, black and a gold eyeshadow. Lovely for the party season. So I got a new concealer which was the new phwoarr paint in medium. It looks like Benefits bo-ing so thought I would try it for £5.49. Then I got their new wow! Tan liquid glow. I love bronzer but sometimes I like a bit of shimmer, so though this would be an idea to try out. This was £5.99. 

That's everything I got on my shopping trip the other day! If you have any of these products please let me know what you think of them :)

Bourjois 1 second nail polish remover

Latley I have really got into this brand! I have bought a few of their products now and love all of them. This is brilliant for a quick change of polish. 

It obviously comes in a pink bottle (which made me want it more) and inside is a black sponge soaked with nail polish remover and a hole in the top of the sponge so you can place your fingure in. It's really easy to use. Just pop your fingure in & twist a couple of times and your nail polish is completely off!!! Yes completely off! It seems too good to be true but it really does what it says! Gone in 1 second!!

I would definitely recommend this. Also great if your going on holiday instead of packing a bottle of nail polish remover and cotton pads. It can take a lot of room up. Well not anymore!! 
I bought mine from boots for £4.99 :] definite must have. 

Tanya burr nail polish!

I have done a lot of shopping over the last month & on one of my many trips to Superdrug I came across tanya burr's nail polishes. I bought 3 as they were on 3 for 2. I got peaches & cream, bright and early & be bright, be happy, be you. 

I love these polishes. They apply really well & they are not runny. The colours are very pigmented and 2 coats of polish is enough! My favourite is be bright, be happy, be you. Obviously because I'm obsessed with pink! I will defiantly be buying more! 


Christmas nails!!

Yes! It's only 8 sleeps till Christmas!! Who's excited? I've been doing lots of Christmas nails lately for clients which has got me a little excited. Even if I'm working all over Christmas! So I thought I would share some of the nails I've done :)

Most of them are acrylic nails with gel polish on top. I use red carpet manicure gel polish, which I love to work with especially doing nail art. I think my favourite nails are the penguins, personally I think they are really cute!
