Makeup Haul & Giveaway

Hello lovelies,

I went to Wilkos the other day and went straight to the Essence stand.

Essence is a brand I discovered when I was in Germany. Very affordable with good quality products.

I had heard a few YouTubers comment on how amazing the metallic eyeyshadows were. My Wilkos had some, so I bought some. Then my friend showed the Roses palette, which she had bought, and of course, I got eyeshadow envy and bought that as well.

I needed a new nail varnish. Tick. And finally, I repurchased my beloved lash princess mascara.

I also picked up a few products from Revlon and Maybelline. Anyways! Where am I going with this? Well, my Youtube channel has a video where I show you all these products and there is also a Giveaway! Open internationally. Ends 25/4. If you want to enter, head over to my channel and watch my video!

Glowy makeup for Glasses

Hi Everyone,

I do not know about you, but I find intricate makeup looks quite hard when you wear glasses. You see, I am partially sighted and colour blind, but I love makeup! That is why my makeup looks are more focused on keeping it simple, blended with a nice lip.

I pay a lot of attention to my base and aim for a glowy, natural look.

Skincare

in order to achieve a lovely look, I get my skin prepped. I use my serums and moisturisers and make sure that my skin is nice and smooth.

Foundation

One of the foundations I have been using quite a lot and love because it is very dewy, is the Nyx Born to Glow foundation. I think this foundation is not getting enough TLC online and if you have not tried it, you really should.

This foundation is a semi thick liquid. Not too runny, but not too thick. It goes on the skin effortlessly and looks like skin. You do not look like you are plasterd. I love it.

Another foundation I have been using and loving, is the Elf CC cream. A CC cream is not exactly a foundation. It has some coverage, but not too much. I think this one works well to correct pigmentation and make your skin look really nice and natural as well.

Out of the two, I think that if you are going for a dewy look, check out the Nyx one, if you want a good coverage CC cream, go for the Elf one. Both are around 10 pounds and have good lasting power. I would say around 8 hours. My skin is quite sensitive, but it has handled both foundations well.

Bronzer and Blusher

Moving on from foundation, I use a powder bronzer (currently using the Hourglass Ambient powder) and then I use blush. I always wear blush. I use my foundation to cover redness and then blush to bring back colour! Ironic, I know.

I keep my eyes simple. I usually use one shade all over the lid.

Lipstick is where I go all cray cray. The bright lip is what I usually go for. Drawing attention to my lips is what I do when I wear my glasses. My favourite lippies are from Max Factor (the Elixir line) and from Clinique (Pop)

Get ready with me: Glowy Look

Some background. I am 45 with redness on my cheeks and some pigmentation. My skin is dry and sensitive. I filmed a glowy get ready with me video on my channel. If that is something you are interested in, please check my channel out and maybe even subscribe to it.

Plan with me Textured Butterfly Spread

Hi planner girls!

Today’s post is looking at one of my favourite planner layouts so far. I created a silver and gold layout which I think is so pretty and I am really happy with! I used stickers I got from the Range, a botanics craft paper and some skinny washi tape. The planner I am using is my happy planner.

You can check out how I made my spread by clicking on the video link. Here are some photos to start with

The thing about this spread is that I filmed a plan with me on the wrong week! That is why I used it for memory keeping.

Plan With Me: Using Washi Tape Only

Hi Everyone!

Today’s post is a planner related one. I love planning even though at the mo, I do not have that much to plan. It just keeps me sane.

What does?

Glamplanning

What’s Glamplanning?

Well it is like creative journalling. You use stickers, washi tape and loads more to decorate your planner.

This is what my planner spread looked like.

I filmed a video and I have linked it at the end of this blog post.

My Planning Method

I decorated my May 2020 spread and just put in important bill dates. I wrote down the date and amount of each one of my direct debits. I did this in a small note pad. Then the fun started.

Time to decorate/ Glamplan

Before we start I shall tell you what I used:

White adhesive labels

Washi Tape

My Happy planner

That’s it. I only used washi tape!!!

I started by covering all the colourful stars at the top of the May monthly spread. I used white label stickers. They are wide.

When I first received this packet of washi tape, I was not that sure that I would be using it especially as everything looked so similar. Then I decided to make a spread using only washi tape. The one I am using is this one Multi Pattern decorative washi tape (shown in the pictures above).

The spread turned out really nice. I am so pleased with it.

This is my video. If you like what you see, please give it a thumbs up.
