What's In My Makeup Bag? ~ Eyes & Lips ~

Here is my 'What's In My Makeup Bag' post part 2! This post will be showing you my eyes and lips products that I have been using on a daily basis recently!
For part 1 (including my face products) click here!


Benefit's 'Lemon Aid' Eyelid Primer - this is great for brightening up the lids and removing any discolouration! It also makes a fab eyeshadow base! What more could I want?

Natural Collection Eyeshadow 'Sea Shell' - this is just a simple matte white eye shadow & it's perfect for highlighting!

Sleek Makeup Pallette 'Storm' - I'm pretty sure everyone and their mother has this pallette so I won't go into too much detail! It's just a fab eyeshadow pallette full of matte/shimmery neutrals and smokes!

Garnier Eye Roll On - I use this every morning just after my moisturiser. It's brilliant for brightening up the area and prepping for my concealer!

Maybelline 'One by One' Mascara - this is my go-to mascara of the moment and I have to say that I LOVE IT! It's such a great mascara for lengthening, separating and adding a dramatic touch to your lashes! 

Natural Collection 'Lash Care' Mascara - this is just a simple, cheap clear mascara! I use this pretty much every day to set my brows after filling them in. (To do this I take the matte light brown colour from the sleek pallette!) It works really well and for £1.99...well...!


Cath Kidston Rose Lip Gloss - this is just a lovely velevety smooth lip gloss which to me is more like a balm! I love the packaging and the glossiness it gives my lips.

Carmex - everyone needs this in their life! If I have seriously chapped lips I turn to this medicated lip balm to turn my lips back into smooth & soft goodness!

Rimmel Vinyl Lipgloss 'Take A Chance' - I love this lipgloss for everyday. It is the perfect baby pink/nude colour and it gives my lips a beautiful shimmer without being over the top and the texture is lovely! Not too sticky! Would highly recommend these glosses!

That's everything I have been putting in my makeup bag as of the last month or so! If you enjoyed this post, please f0llow for more and tell your friends about my blog? I will love you forever! ;)

Much Love,

What's In My Makeup Bag? ~ Face ~

Hey everyone! Hope you're having a fabulous Tuesday! 
Today I thought I would give you all an update of some of my favourite, every day products & what better way to do that than to show what's in my every day makeup bag!
Just a little disclaimer; this is not a makeup bag I keep in my school/hand bag! It is a makeup bag I keep on my counter with my everyday products in it so that I don't have to go routing through everything to find what I want :)

This first post is going to be the face products in the bag. I decided to do separate posts as this post would be WAAAAAY too long!! 

First of all, the makeup bag. This makeup bag is from Jack Wills and was purchased sometime in the summer of 2011? It used to have a zip at the top but that broke but I have been putting this to good use on my counter! I like the fact you can see through it so you can see vaguely what you want!


No7 Essentially Natural Mineral Foundation ~ This is the foundation I have been using of late! It provides a satin/matte finish and looks extremely natural. I don't think it will be a holy grail item but I do really enjoy using it!

No7 Shine Free Primer ~ If you have watched my "Products I Regret Buying" video you will not I am not a fan of this primer - it doesn't provide a matte finish for any longer than an hour. Not impressive! The only reason I have this in here is to use it up!

Clinique Anti-Blemish Clearing Concealer ~ I really love this concealer! You only need the tiniest amount & it covers really well! Will almost definitely re-purchase!

Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer ~ This is basically the drugstore's answer to YSL's "Touche Eclat". It is great for brightening up the eye area as it has a nice pink undertone. I have had this since April 2011 and it's STILL going strong!

NYC Smooth Skin Pressed Face Powder ~ Again, this is not a holy grail product for me, but it gives a nice finish and I want to use it up! Not a bad product for £2.00!

MeMeMe Beat the Blues Highlighter "Sun Beam" ~ This a really pretty golden shimmery highlighter. It gives me a lovely natural glow & is a fab dupe for Benefits "MoonBeam"!

Maybelline Dream Touch Blush "06" ~ This is the perfect everyday cream blush! I just dab this on my cheeks, blend and I'm good to go! Gives a great healthy glow to my cheeks and looks very natural! Definitely want to try more of these!

Well that's all for now!
Stay tuned for my eye & lips products which will be in a separate post soon!

What are some of your holy grail products?

Much Love,

New Video! ~ Current Hair Care Loves!

Here is a new video of mine that I thought I would share with you! It is a video dedicated to my recent hair care loves. These are all products that have been keeping my fine, tangly hair manageable and shiny! 
Hope you enjoy! 
Much Love,

What's a burning? ~ Yankee Candle in "Country Lemonade"

I'm not even going to go into why there has been a lack of posts as it would take up a post on its own! Basically, I have been extremely busy and any free time I've had I have been dedicating to my youtube videos. Hopefully, now I can start posting more regularly!

Anyway, today's post is dedicated to a lovely candle I purchased at least two months ago!

It is Yankee Candles Scented Candle in "Country Lemonade"!

I absolutely love this candle and think it would be a great one for spring and this upcoming summer as it has a light, fresh scent making it a perfect scent for this time of year!
The scent is true to its name as it smells exactly like traditional home-made lemonade! It is smells light and delicate both in the jar and when burning.
Another thing I love about this candle is the fact that it does not burn down quickly. You can always tell if the quality of a candle is good or not but the speed at which it burns. This is the smallest jar sized candle you can purchase from YC and it lasts forever!

Have you tried any Yankee Candles? If so, what are your favourite scents? Leave a comment below! :)

Hope you're having a wonderful day!
Much Love,
