The perfect ‘Grey’ Nail-polish

Hey Guys!

I have always been the type of person who goes for the pastel pale nail colours over the deep vampy purples or bright pinks, because i am generally a very fair person, although i tan quite olive in the summer, i don’t have naturally very strong, long nails and pale pastel shades help to not only give the appearance of longer nails, but also make me look that little bit more tanned. If you watch my channel, youl probably know that I’m pretty obsessed with the colour grey at the moment! Its pretty much all my wardrobe has been until recently.

However, find the perfect grey polish isn’t like finding the perfect grey top. Its damn right impossible. Although there are some really pretty grey/purple shades out there, thats just it, they’re grey/purple, all the polishes I’ve come across have some kind of blue, taupe or purple tinge/undertone to them and thats not what I’ve been after.

so the search continued…

Until finally… i stumbled across the perfect pastel plane old ‘grey’. Thats it, no fussing, no mixture, just grey. Now i know that all grey polished are combined with the odd colours here and there to make it up, but this is the perfect pastel shade, its not too dark either and it last a long time. The only downside with this is that you may need at least 2-3 coats of the stuff to get a proper opaque look, but to be honest, after the amount of searching I’ve been doing, I’m not too bothered!

The shade is Cool Touch by Maybelline

My White Foundation Miracle – Stargazer

Hey Guys!

So todays post is about a foundation that i discovered.

I was looking through my makeup draws the other day and trying to find something that was in-between my usual self, my tanned self, my pale self and everything in between that! I struggled. I am one of those makeup artists that hate to have an obvious mistake when it comes to picking the correct colour, but we’ve all been there! My favourite foundation is the NARS Sheer Glow,  but again, i purchased this so i can apply it when i self tanned. So inevitably, any other time of year i want to use it, it won’t work AT ALL!

So i decided to have a browse through the internet, checking out other peoples blogs, and reviews on white foundations. This is when i came across multiple people raving about the Stargazer White Foundation. 

This foundation is one of the best things I’ve purchased, not only does it work perfectly for mixing with foundations because it is a medium to thick consistency that means you don’t have to use a lot of product in order to see any results (like the MAC face and body) but its for Normal to Dry skin! I HAD to buy!

When this Foundation arrived (which by the way was a lot earlier than expected) I immediately tried it out with my sheer glow. Another amazing thing about this product is that it has very subtle illuminating particles within it that prevent my ‘dewy skin’ foundations from going matte. (which you’ll all probably know i hate). The only downside to this foundation is that the applicator is a lick fiddly, but i can work around that. it would have been better with maybe a pump.

It’s a great foundation and for only £4.49 of amazon, you cannot complain! You can add as little or as much of the white as you want to create the perfect shade for you all year round and I’ve used it nearly every day since!

Kendall Jenner Red Lip Tutorial

Hey Guys!

So todays post is a little different! if you don’t already know, i have a youtube channel which is where i am most of the time! I recently did a video for my ‘Celebrity Monday Makeup’ Series I’ve been doing on.. You guessed it, Mondays!

This week i just felt the need to do something a little different, and make something a bit more fun, less intense and something that shows off my weird personality a little more! So i hope you like the look i did and how i edited the video! Its a Kendall Jenner Inspired look, which i have had countless requests to do over the weeks.

Kiko Base Products Review

So as you may know i recently just got back from a mini break to always amazing Spain! Alongside sipping a glass of tropical slushy perfection (yes… I’m boasting a little) I picked up a couple makeup goodies.

Kiko is a brand I’ve never had the pleasure of trying before, so i when i saw the stand, i couldn’t help but gravitate towards it, and obviously towards the ‘dewy’ section.

These two products i picked up are ones i know i will get a lot of use out of and can spread throughout the year. This first product is as close as to the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders as its going to get without purchasing the real deal. The Kiko Soft Light Setting Powder is literally what it says on the tin ‘soft light setting powder’. It contains the slightest laminating particles to help brighten the complexion whilst setting either your concealer or base makeup in place. The best thing about it, is that it sets without the super matt finish, which for me defeats the whole object of the ‘dewy skin’ look. So this is like my new best friend. It comes in a range of shades (this one being 01) so it can fit pretty much everyone.

However there is 1 downside to this. It can tend to get a little chalky at times if you apply too much and it has a little tendency to settle in the cracks of your skin. Its not really visible to the eye, but under a magnified mirror its sometimes there. For 11 euros though, I’m not huffing and puffing about it…yet!

The second product is one i keep searching for time and time again and keep umming and arrring about, and thats a good Tinted Moisturiser. I struggle to find one that is hydrating, but illuminating and not too oily at the same time, as well some are too thick, some are too thin, some oxidise and some settle into the skin way too much. but this may just be my new skin sister. The Kiko Universal Fit Hydrating Tinted Moisturiser is amazing! its like the perfect blend of foundation and moisturiser. i haven’t yet found anything i don’t like about it so this is great! The colour range is really good and a little goes a very long way!

I hope this post was helpful to those of you maybe looking for the perfect illuminating dewy skin, or at least given you some inspiration.

My Unusual Healthy Meal

Hi Guys!

So todays post is all about food! Yum! So I’ve been getting some inspiration off my Pintrest recently, and as I’m ‘attempting’ to by more healthy, i created a recipe that still gives you craving kick but gives you mix of amazing flavours and your daily dose of iron, Vitamins, calcium, finer and more!

So this dish contains Spinach, sliced Strawberries and Feta Cheese! Yes Strawberries and Feta cheese! Sounds strange right?

Well actually, the combination of the sweet and the sour/savoury flavours mixed in with the spinach are incredible. You can also add sliced peppers, onion, watermelon, olives, avocado, kiwi and more! its such a great way to combine fruit and veg into a meal and not only does it taste amazing, it looks good too!!

One of the great things about this is that the strawberries adhere to your sugar cravings and the feta give you your ‘fatty’ kick!

I love this and I’ve been eating it for the last few days! i HAD to share with you guys are its summer and who doesn’t want to know about amazing food!!

Face Of The Day – First Blog Post

Hello Everyone!

This is my first ever blog post! Ive been wanting to do this for a while but never really known where to start, or how everything works. I am so used to putting myself into the public eye via Youtube, which for me now, is a comfortable place. I know how it works, i know my content but here, i again have felt that uneasy feeling of the unknown! I have tried a few times here and there in the past to post the odd one or two but they have always never been up to quite those standards i wanted, so they got deleted!

So here we are with my first blog post, and i thought it would be safe to do a ‘Face of The Day’ post, but expect to see all things from Beauty, Hair, Fashion, Food and life on here!

Okay so into the actually post. For my base i have been loving the MAC Face and Body foundation because its so lightweight and sheer but also give that even coverage and a slightly dewy finish (which is you watch my youtube channel, you will know I’m obsessed with). This is in the shade N2 Which for me at this time of year when the suns out and about works fine. Next is my concealer, its no news to you guys that this is now my most loved concealer of the bunch, its so creamy, radiant and lasts such a long time. Its so worth all the hype it gets guys!

For my Highlighters i chose two, NARS Copacabana, and Topshop Glow in Polished. There is just something about Copacabana that when applied either on its own or mixed in with foundation that just gives the most perfect dewy illuminating finish! As For my eyes i opted for a much broken (oops) shadow from L’Oreal, its one of their new collections and i must say its incredible, the buttery consistency right down to the pigmentation is perfect! This is in the shade Nude 200.

All i have on my lips today is MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Shanghai Spice. A really Pretty Pinky, peachy nude shade, it really does resemble to colour of spices.
