Update & makeup talk

Hello loves! I hope you're all doing well. As I did promise not long ago I will be pushing myself to persevere with blogging as this is where I blossomed & flourished. Writing has always been my assigned culture. 

First off, can you believe there's only over a month left until us students get back into school/college/uni. I'm actually looking forward to uni, surprisingly.

Now, onto the real biz; makeup. I get hundreds of comments/messages/emails asking about products I use and looks I do. I have a couple of makeup videos on my youtube channel which you can check out here to see the practical side of things. 

For the past few months I've entrusted my face with the simple cat eye and the occasional bright lip, but lately I've tried to also go for the subtle smokey for day-to-day every now and then & have settled a slight addiction to a brown/nude lip.

Some of my favourite products for these have got to be my nude lipsticks Yash and Taupe both by Mac. Great formulas and last beautifully. When feeling confident for a bright lip I almost always go for a red (I don't like bold pinks on me) and my all time favourite is Ruby Woo (also mac) although the formula is much dryer, it's nothing a bit of lipbalm can't fix! For the neutral smokey eye I simply use any mid-tone brown shadow or even my bronzer if I'm in a hurry and I sweep it across my lid and blend, blend, blend. Some of my favourite, cost effective eyeshadows are the sleek i-Divine palettes. There's a vast selection of shades and finishes and the palettes are dirt cheap for the quality.

Let me know what you'd like me to blog about!
