#NOTD Pink Thursday?

Thursday, 25 June 2015

Having always been a lover of purple polishes, i tend to steer clear of anything pink however sometimes you need a change so forget pink wednesdays. 

Trying some new polishes by Essence for insane cheap prices well there's no question about it i had to give them a go.

This combo of Essences The Nude Collection in Hope For Love 07, with my accent nail topped in Avon's Pearl Shine Topcoat is perfect for summertime.

These polishes lasted around five days before my nails stared to feel weak I've never really found that happens before so apart from the chipped edges everything looked tiptop with my favourite No7 Topcoat.

What's your fave nail combo this summer?

Last Week I....

Monday, 22 June 2015

I have a slight obsession with purple nail polish its beyond control, i need to stop!

My new favourite song has to be by Years & Years | Shine

Bought a new Collection cream blush trying this out at the mo so far i like it.

I ran out of dry shampoo, thursday morning what a disaster,

I am really finding it hard to save!

I have started to read again buying books and never reading is my downfall so i'm continuing Gone Girl for the 3 third time.

Watched Pretty Little Liars season 6 ep 3, i still have no clue whats happening, who's with me?

Last of all i'm still obsessed with my one true lover...

Five Top Nail Polishes | Summer

Tuesday, 16 June 2015

Nail polish will always be my weakness that along with mascara.

From bright primary to pastel shades these have to be my top 5 most worn polishes so far this summer.
My love of Barry M will always be strong however seeing new brands, colours even exciting sounding formulas hitting the market, curiosity caught on quick leaving me with too many nail polishes and not enough storage space so from old to new enjoy my faves!

First up we have Rimmel i bought them on a whim having not tried many, too cool to tango is amazing especially with a tan, but i love this electric blue in Danny Boy to top it off they do leave a super a glossy finish powering though whatever you throw at them (washing up isn't my fave thing to do) however the 60 second drying time well i'm not too sure about that one.  

Whats a polish post without any Barry M paints?
The perfect pastel lilac from Barry M Gelly Paints in Prickly Pear has the most beautiful gel shine finish lasting up to 7 days chip free.
One of the newest additions Barry M Fast Dry, is just as impressive it has fast drying properties as well as opaqueness in 2 coats they are some of the best pastel colours I've used yet. 

I can't wait for these to be used all summer on both my nails and toes but just like anyone out there i'm sure its going to take forever to finish even one of these bottles.
(i'm still trying.)

Although the shades might not be everyone's cup of tea or bang on trend they are what i am gravitating towards.

What brands/shades are you loving this summer?

Everyday Makeup Look | GRWM

Sunday, 14 June 2015

Trying something different isn't always my forte but of course why the hell not right!? 

 I have decided to do just that showing you a little into my my beauty regime via images in my 'Get Ready With Me' everyday routine so from the start to a somewhat improved ending all products used are shown below.

Starting from the base I begin with The Body Shop Vitamin E Night Cream,
I use the night version throughout the day as I feel it gives my combination/oily skin all the long lasting moisturising attributes a moisturiser can give, withstanding my 10 hour days in all weather conditions.

Foundation is a love to hate product of mine. So when i'm not battling trying so hard to get a flawless face, i just stick to a tiny bit of my trusty concealer pictured is the Rimmel Wake Me Up in Ivory it is a new purchase so watch this space, so far so good.

Finishing off the base i add a slight touch of the Seventeen 17 by Boots Miracle Matte Powder in Porcelain, keeping any shine to a minimum for the duration of the day, as well as setting  my concealer.

The fun part

Daily I tend to just tame my unruly brows by using a brow/lash wand mixed with a little Collection Clear Mascara, works a treat too when sealing once you've applied a few strokes of powder to keep your brow game strong!

I then move onto my mascara which was L'Oreal Superstar 2 in 1 Mascara in Black, still trying to make my mind up about this one. 

Second fave beauty product has to be blush, this one i actually had forgotten about its by Sleek, Trio Blush in Lace although the shades are just as frightening as the Illamasqua duo reviewed here! (also makes a great dupe,) its perfect for summer. Just lightly swirl between the three dab the excess, then apply for a more natural finish.

Last of all this is a product i cannot get enough of at the moment, i always find it brings the whole look together. The ever so popular scented Bourjois Chocolate Bronze & Highlight Duo lightly pressed onto the cheekbones to make you sparkle when the sun beams onto your face.  

What's your everyday makeup essential?
