GRWM: Prom

Last Friday (27th May) was my sixth form prom, so I thought I'd share with you how I decided to do my makeup for prom.

So firstly I used the MAC prep + prime primer, I got this as a sample when I made a mac order and it provides a great smooth base for you makeup and helps it last all night. Both my foundation and my concealer were from the Revlon Colorstay range, I recently wrote a post about this foundation so I'll link it here if you would like to find out more about this foundation. For highlight, I used both the Barry M strobe cream in the Shade '2' and the MAC mineralized skin finish in 'soft and gentle', to get that 10/10 glow.  Then for contour, I used the Benefit hoola bronzer to define my cheekbones and face but then I used the Nars 'laguna' bronzer to get an overall bronzed glow to my face. Then finally I lightly used the Sleek 'pomegranate' blush on my cheeks, so add some colour back to my face.

For my eyes I firstly used the Urban Decay primer portion to prime my eyes, I absolutely love this product as many of you will know, then I used mainly the Stila 'Eyes are the window to the soul' palette. So firstly I used 'heart' all over my lid and then I used 'thought' in my crease then I also used a little bit of 'character' and then from my Nars duo eyeshadow in 'brousse' i used the left shade and used those to darken the eye look up a bit. I also used 'light' to blend everything out then finally used 'kitten' on my inner corner. I then added some false lashes by Eylure, this was like the second time I've ever used them I really loved the way they made my lashes look. For mascara, i used the Bourjois one second mascara, which I have been absolutely loving recently. Finally, on my lips, i just decided to go for a nude and I used the Soap and Glory matte lipstick in 'super nude'.

I also decided to buy some false nails these are by Elegant touch and I absolutely loved them, they stayed on so well and looked so natural, so I will definitely be repurchasing these in the future. 

So to end this post I thought I'd just add some photos from prom

Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed!

Review: Revlon Colorstay Foundation

Recently I purchased the Revlon colorstay foundation as at Superdrug there was a 3 for 2 offer on Revlon products, so I thought I'd take advantage. The reason that persuaded me to buy this was the fact that this was the first ever foundation I bought and I remember loving it. But as it was my first I wanted to try others but since I have rebought this I have fallen in love with it. The colour range is great and I'm pretty sure they'll have one to match any skin tone; I got the shade 150 Buff and it is the perfect shade for me. The coverage is perfect and buildable without it being cakey, I also love now it has a pump with it never used to which means you no longer waste as much product. This foundation is more on the pricey side for a drugstore foundation, as it is £12.99 but I think it is definitely worth every penny.

Photos from my 18th birthday week!

Today I thought I would share with you some photos from my birthday week. My birthday was on the 9th of May and it was lovely! But also last week it was two of my other friends birthdays so it was a busy week, but here are some of my favourites.

I also got so many lovely presents, which I'm extremely grateful for! So thank you to anyone who got me something or a card I'm extremely thankful and also to anyone who wished me a happy birthday on Instagram! But instead of including all of my presents I thought I'd show you the more makeup and beauty bits!

Thank you for reading this post, hope you enjoyed even though it was most likely boring to most of you! But I think it will be a nice post to look back on in years to come!

Things I loved in April

As we have come to the end of April, I thought I would share with you what I have been loving this
month! It is terrifying how quick the year is going and that we are already in may, however, May and June are going to be some amazing months (despite exams!) and I can't wait!

The first thing I have been loving is the blush out of the Sleek Face Form Contour kit in the shade 'fair', I believe the blush is called 'rose gold' if you were to buy it separately from Sleek. However, this shade is meant to be a dupe for the Nars blush in 'orgasm' and it is lovely. It adds a nice pop of colour to your cheek with a slight simmer but still remains to look natural. I would definitely recommend this kit is you want a good blush, bronzer and highlight all in the same palette.

I have also been loving using my MAC mineralize skin finish in the shade 'soft and gentle' with my Real Techniques setting brush, which were both mentioned in my Feel Unique & MAC Haul (feel free to have a read!). I think these work wonderfully together, as the brush is the perfect size for my cheekbones. 

I have been using and loving the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil for years and it is always going to be a favourite pencil eyeliner, the lasting power is great and it is a perfect black eyeliner for the water line. 

So recently I have noticed that my hair has been quite dry and I was in Superdrug and noticed that they had their own hair oil with coconut and was fairly cheap (£3). I have never been one to buy products for my hair and was apprehensive to buy some expensive oil, however, I saw this one was for dry hair I thought it would try it out. I love this product, I have definitely noticed a difference in my hair, it is so much softer and looks so much healthier and for the price is definitely worth it.

In April, I watched the BBC 5-part series 'Thirteen' and it was amazing! I'd heard a lot about the programme so I thought I'd have a watch and once I started I was unable to stop and ended up watching all the episodes in one weekend. The show follows a girl who was captured at the age of 10 and then held for 13 years before she escapes and it explores finding her capture and what happened to her whilst she was in captured. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a new show to watch.

That is all that I have been loving in April, I hope you enjoyed and thank you for reading!
