To be honest, I’ve never been the kind of person who tries to stay ahead of the trends, but when Boots* challenged me to try out a makeup look based on the newest trends for the summer, I couldn’t resist!!
A while ago, I was very generously sent two of the new Pixi Beauty Eye Reflections shadow palettes; Reflex Light and Natural Beauty.
While watching some random YouTube videos a couple of weeks ago, it recommended a YouTuber called Cherry Wallis. If you’ve not heard of her before, I’d definitely recommend checking her out. She not only has a lot of Harry Potter related videos, but loads of SFX makeup videos which I was absolutely enthralled by. It looked really fun, so I decided I wanted to try some of the looks for myself. Unfortunately I didn’t own any SFX stuff at all, so I bought a few things from Treasure House of Makeup.
I’ve also been admiring Hayley’s (TeaPartyBeauty) Instagram feed because her Halloween SFX makeup is just fab!!

It’s been ages since I’ve done a makeup of the day post. In fact I think it was back in July! Damn… Where’s the time gone?
I thought I’d do an autumny-feel makeup look at the weekend; all purple and gold tones!
Last week when I went to The Maker Club event with Tania, her face was so absolutely flawless, I begged her to let me in on her secret. It was Too Faced’s Born This Way foundation! I was all over that and I forced her to Debenhams so I could get colour-matched. Aaaand they were out of stock. So I bought some online and picked it up last Wednesday.
I’m pretty sure I’ve not done one of these for ages so having a long weekend seemed like the perfect excuse! Unless it completely passed you by, it was Easter Sunday yesterday so I looked on Google and Pinterest for an Easter inspired makeup tutorial to try out!
I thought as winter was upon us, I’d attempt a festive eye makeup look to celebrate.
I thought I’d brighten up my blog with a little bit of colour!
Well as promised, now I have some beautiful Halloween-y colours, I thought I’d attempt a makeup look with a Hallowe’en theme!
I’m excited to try out my new palette and as it comes with a handy guide on how to do different smoky eyes, I thought I’d try out a couple of looks from it!
