HARRY POTTER MAKEUP SERIES: RON WEASLEY INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK

HARRY POTTER MAKEUP SERIES: RON WEASLEY INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK

This is my third makeup look in my Harry Potter Inspired Makeup Series. I think these looks are so fun to create as the colours that inspire me often is something I don’t normally would go to. Like in this look where I chose to let Ron Weasley inspire me. Ron became best friends with Harry Potter in their first year at Hogwarts. Ron’s entire family is known for their red hair which inspired me to use the orange shade. Ron also has blue eyes, hence the blue shades in my makeup look.

Before I started playing with any eyeshadow, I primed my lids with my trusty MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and used a translucent powder to set it. For this makeup look, I wanted to make a blue crease and use an orange shadow all over the lid. For some extra drama, I wanted to apply a blue, winged eyeliner as well. I started off this look by applying some of the blue shadow¬†Electric Blue from Coastal Scents (which I can’t find on their website.. I don’t know if they have had a clear out as this is not the first shade I can’t find). I used the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents to apply the shadow. I knew I wanted to do a cut crease, so I layed down the blue shadow in somewhat the shape I wanted. I then blended out the Electric Blue shadow using the same brush but dipped it into the light blue Cornflower Blue from Coastal Scents (which I again can’t find…) and used small, circular motions.

The next step was to cut the crease! I here used the Dermacol¬†Foundation (I bought mine off eBay) and the Small Foundation Concealer Brush from Coastal Scents. When I had cut the crease, I made sure to set the foundation I had used with powder so it would not transfer anywhere. I then applied the orange shade Orange Crush from Coastal Scents (couldn’t be found either…) on my lid using the Accent Brush from Real Techniques. I used this small brush for precision. Next, I used the NYX Cosmetics Vivid Brights Eyeliner¬†(*) in the shade Sapphire for my winged eyeliner. I have only used this liner for small details on my winged liner before and have not used it for an entire wing until now. If you don’t have a blue eyeliner, then I wouldn’t recommend this one as it is very flaky! I had the same issue with their white eyeliner. You can make it work though. After I made the wing I used some of my Dermacol¬†Foundation (which I use as concealer) to clean up under the wing.

With the Accent Brush from Real Techniques, I layed down some of the shade Electric Blue under my eyes and used the Pointed Blender Brush dipped into Cornflower Blue to blend it out. Then, I finished up my makeup! I used the Tony Moly Easy Touch Auto Eye Brow in the shade Brown for my brows and used the NYX Cosmetics Control Freak Eyebrow Gel to keep them in place. I curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and applied some of the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara (*) to my lashes and added a couple of the Eylure Individual Lashes (*) to the outer part of my lashes. I highlighted my inner corner with the shade Golden Dawn from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit (*) and I used the shade White Sand from the same kit to highlight my brow bones and my cheekbones.

I hope you enjoyed this makeup look as I really enjoyed creating it! I think these colours really pushed me out of my comfort zone and made me experiment a bit more. I hope to see you back soon! xxx

10 NECKLACES UNDER 10 POUNDS

10 NECKLACES UNDER 10 POUNDS

//1 Gold Horn Pendant Necklace (£6, *) Р//2 Silver Pendant Necklace (£14) Р//3 Linked Circle Pendant Necklace (£5, *) Р//4 Vintage Multi-Row Necklace (£10, *) Р//5 Silver Star Pendant Necklace (£7, *) Р//6 Double Chain Pearl Necklace (£8, *) Р//7 Birthstone Pendant Necklace (£8) Р//8 Gold Double Coin Necklace (£7) Р//9 Filigree Layered Choker Necklace (£10) Р//10 Gold Diamante Pendant Necklace (£7)

Well… This is actually 9 necklaces under 10 pounds and 1 necklace under 15 pounds as I, for some reason, picked a necklace which retails for 14 pounds… I don’t know how that happened but it is stunning even though it is four pounds more. The necklace I am talking about is #2. The necklaces at #2, #5¬†(*) and #10 are in the same “genre” of necklaces according to me, as they all are pendant necklaces and contains some sort of stones. This kind of necklaces might be my favourites of all necklaces as I think they are so delicate and flattering!

The most of the necklaces from my collage are delicate and very simple. A style that is very hot right now is the layered necklaces. They can be bought as one necklace which looks like a layered necklace but there is only one clamp in the neck. All the layered necklaces I have included above (#4 (*), #6, and #9) only have one clamp which makes it so easy! You can, of course, buy individual necklaces and layer them which would make it very personal! Then you are able to mix and match your favourite necklaces and maybe mix in some necklaces with special meanings for you and even mix and match budget and luxury items. Maybe even mix metals if you are into that.

Another style in pendant necklaces I am so into right now is the coin necklaces which is seen in #4¬†(*) and #8. I think they are so fun and the individual coin necklaces (#8) will work very well as a layered necklace! The one at #7 might look a bit like a coin, but it isn’t. It is just a gold disk and then there is a little birthstone included in the chain as well. I just chose my own birthstone for July, but you will be able to find your own birthstone¬†on the website.

I think my ultimate favourite necklace from the collage has to be #6 (*)! I think pearl details are so cute and super stunning! I really adore the look of this necklace and think it would look great paired with different kinds of outfits! I would love to know which necklace is your favourite, so let me know in the comments!

I hope you enjoyed reading this blog post! I think it is so fun to find items for when you are on a budget as I always get surprised at how many nice items you can get for a good price! I hope to see you back soon! xxx

MY ENTRY TO THE NYX NORDIC FACE AWARDS

MY ENTRY TO THE NYX NORDIC FACE AWARDS

THIS IS MY ENTRY TO THE NYX NORDIC FACE AWARDS 2018! I have created a pink forest fairy and I am so proud of the finished look! A big challenge for me was that one of the requirements in this competitions was that I had to make a video on how I created this look and upload it to Instagram (click THIS LINK to see my video!). It might sound easy, but as one who has never filmed anything before, it was a bit of a challenge! It later turned out that it wasn’t the recording part that was going to be my issue as I found a way to make it work. I edited my clips together using the app iMovie for MacBook and I think it turned out great and I was surprised how easy the program was to use! Until I had to save the 60-second video I just created… I tried to save it for four days!!!! I won’t even go into why and what I have tried! If I am being totally honest with you… Then I have to admit that I literally had a breakdown where I just stood there crying with my boyfriend trying to comfort me and cheer me up. I had used to much time and energy on this makeup look and this video. I was totally heartbroken that I could not get this programme to save the video to my desktop.

I ended up making a screen video of my own video (which is what the first part of my Instagram video is and why it is so bad quality). For whatever reason, it didn’t record the last part of my video and just skipped ahead to the ending so I had to try to save the last part of my video which surprisingly succeeded! That is the reason for the varying quality in my video hahahah. But I am finally here, on the finish line! I have uploaded my video to Instagram and I am now ready to see who they pick as the lucky 30 contestants! Honestly, I would be so proud to just reach top 30 as there are sooooo many talented boys and girls who have joined the competition! I am glad that I am not one of the judges who have to take such a hard decision!

But what is my inspiration for this look? Why did I choose to create a pink forest fairy? I normally create wearable looks, but as I was looking through some of the other contestants and some of the looks from the last couple of years, I realised that I had to come up with something different and throw myself out of my comfort zone! If you read my blog, then you might have seen my Harry Potter Inspired Makeup Series and thereby might have concluded that I love Harry Potter and the entire universe! I love fantasy and I have always been very creative with drawing my own fantasy animals and writing fantasy stories when I was younger, so I knew I wanted to create something in this genre.

Products used (in order):
The Ordinary High-Spreadability Fluid Primer (*), NYX Cosmetics Pore Filler (*), Makeup Revolution Liquid Highlighter in Starlight (*), The Ordinary Coverage Foundation (*), LA Girl Pro Conceal, MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Soft Ochre, Makeup Revolution Blush Palette in All About Pink (*), NYX Cosmetics Tame & Frame Brow Pomade in Blonde and Brunette (*), NYX Cosmetics White Liquid Liner (*), NYX Cosmetics Vivid Brights Liner in Fire and Halo, Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara, Eylure Individual Lashes (*), Makeup Revolution Highlighter Palette (*), Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in Birthday Suit (limited edition), Essence Shine Shine Shine Lipgloss in Indie Romance.

I really enjoyed creating this look so I hope you enjoyed it as well and I hope I inspired you to try something different and throw yourself out of your comfort zone! I hope to see you back soon!

30 SHADES OF YELLOW

30 SHADES OF YELLOW



//1 РSatin Shoulder Bag Р//2 Bomber Jacket (*) Р//3 Vinyl Skirt (*) Р//4 Tailored Blazer Р//5 Roll Neck Knit Dress (*) Р//6 Sunglasses Р//7 Crock Block Heels Р//8 Flower Neck Tee Р//9 Clear Heels Р//10 Spiked Bag Р//11 Satin Heels (*) Р//12 Double Breasted Blazer Р//13 Shopper Tote Bag Р//14 Knit Dress with Split Sleeves (*) Р//15 Hoop Earrings Р//16 Fur Vest (*) Р//17 Studded Cross Body Bag Р//18 Floral Pencil Skirt Р//19 Pearl Button Blazer Р//20 Jeggins Р//21 Clear Strap Heels (*) Р//22 Crystal Cross Body Bag Р//23 Plunge Dress Р//24 Shirt Р//25 Bracelet Р//26 Long Cardigan Р//27 Tee with Stripe Details Р//28 Culottes Р//29 Satin Sandals (*) Р//30 Tote Bag

I have always thought that yellow was such a badass colour for a clothing item! I love people who rock colours like yellow. I think yellow items like coats, furs, blazers, and cardigans are the easiest to style as you can throw them over literally any kind of outfit! The blazer at #4 is my favourite blazer of the three I included in the collage above. You can pair it with an all black or all white outfit and even with a pair of denim jeans and a classic white tee! If you want to go all in, you can pair it with a pair of matching trousers like these which are by the same designer as the blazer.

Yellow accessories is a great way to incorporate more colour into your outfit. Take for example the sunglasses at #6, these sunglasses are all yellow – even the glass is yellow! They would really spice up an outfit! If you think yellow sunglasses are a bit too much or not your cup of tea, then shoes, bags, or jewellery might be a better option for you! I think the matching earrings and bracelet at #15 and #25 are so stunning and would easily give your outfit a nice pop of colour!

One of my favourite items from the collage is the yellow culottes at #28 as I think they are such an iconic item! I think they would look great paired with a white shirt and a white pair of court heels to elongate your legs. I am also totally in love with the knit dress at #14 which actually have split sleeves which you aren’t able to see on the picture in the collage, but if you click the link then be prepared to fall in love! I would style the dress with a wide waist belt in black and a pair of black thigh high boots! I am drooling at the thought of this outfit!

I hope I gave you some inspiration on how to style yellow items and that you now believe that you need at least one yellow item in your closet! Let me know what item of the collage is your favourite! Mine might be #14 aaaaaand I think I need to order it! Thank you for reading my blog post! I hope to see you back soon xxx

HARRY POTTER MAKEUP SERIES: GRYFFINDOR INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK

HARRY POTTER MAKEUP SERIES: GRYFFINDOR INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK

This is the second makeup look in my Harry Potter Makeup Series and I cannot tell you enough how much I have been looking forward to creating the next look in the series! This time I chose to create a Gryffindor inspired makeup look as the last look was a Harry Potter inspired one. Gryffindor is one of the four houses at Hogwarts which students like Harry Potter, Ronald Weasley, and Hermione Granger was sorted to. The houses are named after the ones who founded Hogwarts; Godric Gryffindor, Rowena Ravenclaw, Helga Hufflepuff, and Salazar Slytherin. I chose to be inspired by the colours that represent the Gryffindor house which is red and gold. If you want to see how I used these shades, then keep on reading!

I started off by priming my eyelids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and used translucent setting powder to set it. The first shade I used for this look was a warm yellow shadow called Cantaloupe Slice from Coastal Scents (which I for some reason can’t find on their website so I can’t link it). I placed the shadow in the crease using the Crease Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. Next, I layed down the shadow Red Ochre from the Modern Renaissance Palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills (*) all over my lid using the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. To blend out the edges of Red Ochre, I used the same brush but made sure it was clean before I used it again. I like to wet a cotton pad with micellar water and swirl my brush around on it to get the excess shadow of my brush when I need to use it again. When the brush is clean, I just swirl it on the back of my hand to dry it. With the clean Pointed Blender Brush, I dipped into the shade Charm from the Androgyny Palette from Jeffree Star Cosmetics and blended out Red Ochre with small motions. Every time before I dipped into Charm again, I made sure that the brush hadn’t picked up any red shadow from the lid. If it had, then I would clean it again to make sure I would not have red shadow all over the crease.

I wanted to make a halo eye, so I now applied my concealer (I like the Dermacol Foundation as my concealer) on the lid where I wanted the halo to be (I, unfortunately, forgot to take a picture of this part, but it is literally where you want the gold shadow to be). After I had applied the concealer I used a translucent powder to set it to make sure it didn’t transfer anywhere. For my halo, I used the shadow 18 Karat Gold from Coastal Scents with the Pointed Detail Brush from Coastal Scents. To make the gold shadow pop, I wetted my brush with some setting spray. When you have applied your gold shadow you have to make sure that the edges of it are blended. To do this I used the Accent Brush from Real Techniques and some of the Red Ochre shadow. I dipped the tip of the brush into the shadow and then blended out the gold. I then kept going back and forth until I was satisfied with the result.

With the same Accent Brush, I applied a bit of the Red Ochre under my eyes and used the Pointed Blender Brush dipped into Charm to blend it out. Then I finished my makeup! I curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and applied some of the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara. When my mascara had dried, I applied some of the Eylure Individual Lashes (*). For my brows, I used the NYX Tame & Frame Tinted Brow Pomades (*) in the shades Blonde and Brunette. For my highlight, I used the Jeffree Star Cosmetics x MannyMUA Skin Frost in the shade Eclipse.

I hope you enjoyed this makeup look as much as I loved creating it! Let me know if you have something from the Harry Potter universe you think I should get my inspiration from! I hope you all have a wonderful week so far! Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xxx

WHY YOU SHOULD ADD THIGH HIGH BOOTS TO YOUR WARDROBE

WHY YOU SHOULD ADD THIGH HIGH BOOTS TO YOUR WARDROBE

//1 Black BB Embroidered Boots (Balenciaga, £950) Р//2 Grey Suede with Silver Heel (Casadei, £1105) Р//3 Black Suede (Public Desire, £40) Р//4 Khaki Peeptoe (Public Desire, £40) Р//5 Pointed Leather Look Boots (Public Desire, £45) Р//6 Leather Boots with Block Heel (Sergio Rossi, £1350) Р//7 Suede Chain Heel (Casadei, £1185) Р//8 Red Pointed Toe Boots (Public Desire, £45)

Ahhh thigh high boots, one of my many fashion love affairs! Some people love them, some people hate them, but in this blog post, I will tell you why I think you should add thigh high boots to your wardrobe! In the collage above, I have found 8 pairs of thigh high boots – affordable as well as high-end.

First off, why do I love thigh high boots? Well, I think thigh high boots can add something interesting to an otherwise everyday outfit. If you add thigh high boots to a pair of jeans and a turtleneck, then you – in my mind – reach a whole new level of stylishness!

Let’s start out with pair #1 which are some high-end ones from Balenciaga. I love that these are some kind of sock boots which makes it so much easier to pull them up if they fall down which I personally have difficulties with my own thigh high boots, but I found a solution to this problem which involves double-sided tape! If you don’t want to or have ¬£950¬†to spend on a pair of boots, then why not take a look at #5 and #8 which both are from Public Desire. These look like great dupes for the Balenciaga boots as they have the same pointed toe design and some kind the same sock concept. A big plus is that the boots of Public Desire are available in more shades than the Balenciaga boots which I have only seen in the black colour.

If you are on a budget, then I really think you should take a look at the boots from Public Desire which both #3, #4, #5, and #8 are from. They offer a great range of not only boots but a lot of shoes! My favourite pair from the collage above, which are available from Public Desire, has to be the red Balenciaga dupes (#8) as I think they would look so killer with an all-black outfit!

Another great detail, which I mostly have been seeing on designer thigh high boots, are eye-catching heels! Take for example #2 and #7! These are both designer thigh high boots but their heels are so stunning and so interesting! I also have been seeing a lot of heels on thigh high boots which were decorated with crystals! I think these eye-catching heels are so charming and a great way to oomph up your outfit even more!

I think thigh high boots go well with both jeans, dresses, and skirts! If you are wearing a mini dress or skirt, then why not try to style it with a pair of thigh high boots! Or try my advice with an everyday outfit paired with some thigh high boots matching the top you are wearing!

I hope you enjoyed this blog post and that I convinced you that you need at least one pair of thigh high boots in your wardrobe! Let me know what pair of boots that is your favourite from the collage! Mine is definitely #8!!! I hope you have had a wonderful week so far! I hope to see you back soon! xxx

TUTORIAL: MIXING METALS GOLD & SILVER EYESHADOW LOOK

TUTORIAL: MIXING METALS GOLD & SILVER EYESHADOW LOOK

If I am honest with you, I actually hate mixing metals, especially with jewellery! I don’t know why but I always have! I used the shades Vermeer and Primavera from the Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills (*) as the silver and gold shades in this look. Vermeer is not straight up silver but it is a very icy shade with a pink undertone while Primavera is a very subtle gold. I came up with this “mixing metals” idea as I often see people using different shades of shimmery shadows on their lid, but it is often different shades of the same colour. If you want to know how I created this look, then keep on reading!

To start of this eyeshadow look, I primed my eyelids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and used a translucent powder to set it. Next, I dipped straight into the Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette (*) from Anastasia Beverly Hills! The first shade I used was Golden Ochre in my crease with a Crease Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. Next, I dipped the same brush into the shade Raw Sienna from the same palette and placed it a bit lower in my crease. I wanted to make the eyeshadow more warm-toned, so I dipped into the shade Burnt Orange with the Classic Blender Brush from Coastal Scents and lightly swept it over my entire crease. Then I applied some of the shade Raw Sienna to the outer corner of my lid using the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents to lay down the shadow but used the Crease Blender Brush to blend it out.

Before I started on the shimmery shadows, I layed down some of the shade Raw Sienna under my eyes with the same Pointed Blender Brush and again I used the Crease Blender Brush to blend it out but this time I had dipped the brush into the shade Burnt Orange. To make the shimmery shadows more metallic, I dipped my brush (Pointed Detail Brush from Coastal Scents) into some NYX Cosmetics Dewy Setting Spray (*) which I had sprayed into the cap it comes with. I started by applying the shade Vermeer to about half of my lid, then I used the same brush and applied the shade Primavera to the middle of my eyelid, so I applied it a bit over the Vermeer shadow and into the shade Raw Sienna I had placed on the outer part of my lid. I used the shade Raw Sienna to blend out the edge of Primavera and then I just kept going back and forth until I was happy with the result! To do this I used the Pointed Blender Brush for Raw Sienna and the Pointed Detail Brush for Primavera.

Then I curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and applied the Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara from Essence to my lashes. For my brows, I used the NYX Cosmetics Tame & Frame Tinted Brow Pomade (*) in the shades Blonde and Brunette. And believe it or not, but I actually forgot to put on highlighter!

I hope you enjoyed this makeup tutorial! Let me know in the comments if you are mixing metals or not! I hope to see you back soon! xx

8 DESIGNER JEWELLERY I HAVE MY EYES ON

8 DESIGNER JEWELLERY I HAVE MY EYES ON

//1 Coin Necklace (Alighieri) – //2 Beetle Ring (Balenciaga) – //3 Shells with Dangling Pearls Earrings (Kenneth Jay Lane) – //4 “Suzie” Ring (Vivienne Westwood) – //5 Medusa Stud Earrings (Versace) – //6 Chanel Logo Brooch (Chanel) – //7 Snake Tragus Earring (Maria Tash) – //8 Tiger Head Earrings (Gucci)

I love jewellery and lately, a lot of designer brand jewellery have been catching my eye. Above I have made a collage which contains 8 of my favourite designer jewellery right now. As you might have guessed already, I love earrings. Another weakness of mine is characteristic jewellery. I have always loved the more interesting pieces of jewellery which would make people talk. I once had a ring with tiny figures of the seven dwarfs from Snow White which I got a lot of comments for as you might imagine! But I like that kind of jewellery as I think they are the most exciting to wear!

In the collage above, there are four earrings, two rings, one brooch, and one necklace. This is also a very good resemblance of what I normally wear. I normally wear earrings and rings on a daily basis. I actually never wear brooches, but I really want to own some as they really have caught my eye recently. And I never really wear necklaces but I really want to become better at it as I think a beautiful necklace really can tie an outfit together!

My favourite jewellery out of the entire collage has to be #7 which is the snake tragus earring from Maria Tash. I have a tragus piercing in my left ear but I really want it repierced as the piercing is not where I want it to be. I think the jewellery that Maria Tash makes is so stunning! And again, I love some of the more interesting pieces of jewellery which is why I really adore this one!

I like logo jewellery when it comes to designer pieces or jewellery with styles you know from specific brands. #4, #5, #6, and #8 are great examples of these! I especially love the Chanel Brooch as I think it would look stunning on knitwear!

The last piece I want to talk about is #1 which is the coin necklace. Layered necklaces are one of the biggest jewellery trends right now, and I think this necklace would look stunning layered with smaller necklaces!

I hope you enjoyed this kind of post as it is a new series I wanted to start! Let me know if you liked this post and what piece of jewellery from the collage you liked the most! I hope to see you back soon! xx

HOW TO FIGURE OUT YOUR SKIN TYPE

HOW TO FIGURE OUT YOUR SKIN TYPE

To find out what skin type you have can be really helpful when you are looking for skin products like cleansers, toners, moisturizers and even makeup products like primers and foundations. I personally have normal sensitive skin but it can go dry depending on the weather which is why I use a mild cleanser and a good moisturizer and I wouldn’t mind a face oil.

But how do you figure out your skin type? You don’t need to go to a professional to get to know what kind of skin type you have. You are fully capable of finding out on your own. The best way to determine your skin type is to look and feel. I would recommend that you wash your face with a mild cleanser and dry your skin with a towel with gentle motions. The next step would be to leave your skin bare and wait about an hour and then go take a look at your skin in the mirror.

When talking about skin types, the major types are normal, dry, oily, and combination skin. If you find your skin to look shiny and it has an all-over slick feeling to it when looking in the mirror the hour after you have washed it, then you have oily skin. If you find your skin to feel very dry and even rough with dried out patches, then you have dry skin. If you notice that your skin might look shiny in the T zone but dry at other areas, then you have combination skin. If you find your skin to feel smooth without dry patches our oily areas, then you have normal skin. Some people might say that sensitive skin is a skin type for itself, but I won’t categorize it as a skin type. I think it is something you have with your skin type as I think you can have oily sensitive skin as well as dry sensitive skin.

What is sensitive skin? When you have sensitive skin, your skin might react differently to some products. Your skin might react with redness, itchiness, burning, or dry out because of a product. As I told you earlier, I have sensitive skin myself and I know what a struggle it is.

I hope you found this post helpful! If you already know what skin type you have and think that this post was a bit of a dud, then don’t worry! This will be my first post about skin types as I am planning on creating a lot more content about skin types and what products would work the best for yours! So keep an eye open ūüėČ I hope to see you back soon!
