Current Go To Make-up Routine//Autumn 2015

So apparently Winter doesn't start till the 21st December! That's why today's post is Autumn not Winter Make-up Routine, but to be honest it feels like Winter where I live! 

My current Make-up Routine starts off with Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation, this foundation is a liquid mousse, therefore it is very thick, at the start but once you start to blend it into your skin it then goes into a liquid.
I apply this with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush. 

After applying my foundation, my face is then abit sticky and shiny, So I will go all round my face with the Seventeen Stay Time Pressed Powder. Using the Real Techniques Contour Brush. This Powder gives of a full coverage and sometimes it does go a bit cakey.

For my eyes I use this gorgeous bronze gold colour by MUA (Chamoisee). MUA eyeshadows are better than what you may think, I brought this one for Halloween as it was £1 and I have fallen in love with it!

I will then go onto mascara, Maybelline Lash Sensational , for being drugstore this mascara gives off the best volume! This is the best mascara I've ever brought!

This is literally all I use for my go to Make-up, 4 products, thats it! I will sometimes use some kind of lip products, contour and blush.

Sorry this is a short post, but I hope you have enjoyed it. 
If you didn't know I am definitely posting every Saturday now!
So keep a look out every Saturday!

Christmas Gift Ideas/DIYS For Friends


Before I get on with today's blog post, I just wanted to say Thank You so much for 1.5K+ page-views that is incredible! I have people over in Australia reading my blog, that is on the other side of the world to where I live. I created this blog a month ago today and never thought that my blog would reach Australia!
I have decided that I am going to post every Saturday, with some few extra ones in the week too. 
Ok, on the post for today we go...

Friends can be quite hard to buy for at Christmas, as you don't want to spend ridiculous amounts on one of your friends and not on the others. So I have found some yummy gifts that you could buy for your friends, for under £4! As well as some DIYS to go with it. 

 Number 1:
Everyone loves chocolate, so why not get your friends some chocolates for Christmas. Cadburys Selection Boxes are really avoidable, especially when they are 2 for £2! In the box you get lots of different type of chocolate from solid milk chocolate to the chewy Chomps! 
There will definitely be something in there that your friend will like!

The Selection Boxes are in a nice and easy shape box to wrap up, so you can get abit for creative with the wrapping adding some ribbon and string! I decided to wrap these Selection Boxes up in some snowflake wrapping paper  and some string. All from Asda.                                                                                                             
Number 2: 
Lush in a Jar!

You will need:
1 Jar
Something from Lush

Fill about 1/3 of your jar with baubles (mine are from Morrisons) and then carefully place the Lush product into  the jar (mine is from B and M) and fill the rest of the jar with some more baubles. Last but not least screw the top on. 

This is so easy and simple but it looks so affective and that you have spent alot of money on it when in all fact you spent £5!

Number 3:
One Colour, One Box.

You will need:
A couple of things all the same colour (I chose pink: Snow fairy,Candy Mountain and Snow Flake Cookie Wax) 
Some sort of filler (Tissue Paper, Straw) 
A Box

All you need to do is put your filler in the box and place the products on top of the filler and then you can leave it like that or  wrap it up! 

I hope you liked today's post!
Please leave comment below of Christmas ideas of what I could write about.
Hope you had a wonderful day!

Christmas Wishlist 2015

Its nearly December! (Well not really but that doesn't matter!) Which means Christmas and lots of other cool things happening! This is my first blogpost of my series for Christmas, so I thought that it would be a great idea to start of with my Christmas Wishlist. 
Everything that is on my wishlist is all linked to a website where you can buy the product, just click on it!

Disclaimer- These present are being asked for all of my family so like Mum and Dad, Grandparents, Auntie and Uncles and of course Santa! And I am not expecting all of this! As I prefer giving presents not receiving and for people to spend money on making them happy!

The first thing on my list is a couple of products from MAC, I currently don't own anything from MAC and I really would like to, only a couple of things as you can get products in the Drugstores for half the price, might not be as good, but looks the same!

I've heard a lot of good things about this foundation and that it is good for oily skin, which I do have.  I also done a Live Chat on the MAC website and the lovely lady said this one is the best one their sell for oily skin! 

2) Mac Lipsticks- Frou, Midimauve and Viva Glam VI
 There are 3 that I have had my eye on for a couple of weeks now, the first one which is my favourite, is one of the Viva Glam lipsticks in VI, its such a nice purperly nude, its gorgeous! The next one I like it Midimauve, a couple of weeks ago me and my mum were in an Outlet near where I live and in one of the Cosmetic shop they sell MAC products that are really reduced and they had Midimauve and Frou in there and I really liked them. Midimauve is similar to VI just a bit lighter and more everyday basic. Frou is your everyday basic nude, the lipstick that will go with every look! Such a stunning colour!

The next things that  is on my list is Gromits, now you must be thinking what am I on about! Well in 2013, near the area I live in, they scattered the city in big Gromits raising money for a hospital in the city, it was just a really nice day out walking around finding them all. So the charity decided to create figurines of the Gromits to sell and for people to collect and the money will then go to the hospital! So I started to collect them and I am doing pretty well for the moment!
But  there a couple that I really like the look of and think they will look really good with my collection at the moment!

2) Paisley 
Paisley is my favourite one, so now they have thisone in a figurine, made me so happy!

 and yes there is a lot more that I would like, but they are on the pricey range of things so 3 is enough for the list I think!

The next couple of things on my list are books!
I am not a huge fan of books, I don't really enjoy sitting down and reading! However I do love to read David Wallaiam books, I've read all of them so far. Except his newest one- Grandpa Great Escape!
I find David's books not boring at all and really interesting.
Next couple of books are Youtubers books, what a surprise! I don't really mind if I do not receive these, they are just on my list just in case someone doesn't know what to get me!
1) Girl Online on Tour (by Zoe Sugg)
2) Hello Life (by Marcus Butler)
3) Username Evie (by Joe Sugg)

Beauty Things!
One thing that I really would like to have is a big collection of Real Techniques, if you have read my 'How To Clean Makeup Brushes' then you will know how much I love Real Techniques! So as I will do, I will be asking for some this year, the ones that I would like are: 

Drugstore Makeup!

Random Bits and Bobs
I am really looking forward to watching this, I really do think it will be so funny!

I find little purses like this one so handy when you are going somewhere  but don't want to take a big purse or to use at school

Last thing on my list- Drum Roll Please....

 OMG Christmas isn't right without a Lush product in your stocking! So, personally I don't think you can go a Christmas without getting some Lush products!

I hope you like todays post, comment what you want for Christmas, be nice to know! And I hope you are looking forward to my Christmas Series! 
Hope you had a nice day

PS: I couldn't find the Babylips on the internet, but they are from Tescos Christmas range

How To Clean Your Makeup Brushes

Sorry, I've haven't been very active the  past week! But I am back today with a 'How to Clean Make Up  Brushes' tutorial. 
I don't really own that many brushes, but the ones I do own are, Real Technique Core Collection Set and Foundation Brush and I also own a Seventeen  Eye Brush. My favourite brushes are Real Techniques, they make makeup applying so easy. 

All you need is shampoo, any type will do, a towel and a sink.

 Step 1: Fill your sink with hot water, but not to hot that you will burn your hands!

Step 2: Once you have filled your sink with water, get your shampoo and put a little bit in the palm of your  hand. With one of your brushes, swirl the dirty side around you palm in circle about 10 times, quite fast. 

Step 3: After you swirled your brush around your hand, you will be able to see lots of makeup already coming of. 
Now this is the fun bit! Put the brush into the water and pinch the dirty side at the bottom and move your fingers up a couple of times to get all the soap of. 
And then place the brush on a towel afterwards.

Repeat these steps for all of your brushes, only change the water if it is really filthy!

Now all of your brushes should look all spanky clean. 
Step 4: Finally wrap the towel around the brushes, to dry them. They will dry on their own, so no need to use a hair-dryer! 

So, I hoped you liked today's blog and it has helped you!

Hope you had a fab week.
