My week in pictures!!!

Hey guys!! 
Sorry I've gone awol my lovelies , but a lot has been going on these past couple weeks ! 
But I'm back , and with full force for a 'My week in pictures' blog post.


So this week in college we've been doing hair designs ,and have been trying out various techniques for different looks. 
In the images above , there are pin curls , loose curls, victory rolls , twists Ect , I'm surprisingly patient when it comes to hair , which I really didn't think i would be , and I really enjoy it too. 


On number one we've got me and my bestie ,my (mana) as we like to say!
We were at that point of desperation in being away from each other for so long so we decided to get together and go for a nice fun catch up! :)
Number two we've got a nice hot candle lit bubble bath ,which was heaven if i must say so my self ,i usually just stick to showers but just relaxing in a bubble bath is pure perfection on some tiresome days.
Thirdly there is my eye LOL, and i decided to do a little throwback and go and buy an old favorite mascara of mine,the Maybelline cat eye mascara!
i needed a good mascara so i remembered this one and it's just as amazing as i remember,the picrture above is just with one light coat on and look how long my usually short lashes look!!!!!!
Lastly its me in my Workout gear!
Iv'e been trying to be good lately and eating a lot healthier , and also trying to work out daily ,so yeah i thought me and my Shock Absorber sports bra ,were worthy of a good ole selfie ,hehe . 

Lastly we've got some pictures of me and my cousins over the weekend , it was an unexpected last min thing! 
And I love those (unless I've got plans ;) haha ) , it just turns a boring old weekend to some full on family fun! Love my little annoying rascals to bits! 

So that's my week in pictures for you all hope you enjoyed !
Much love

Contouring & Highlighting Madness

Contouring & Highlighting! 

My ultimate makeup Must! doing both these things is what honestly brings your entire makeup look together , you sculpt the face to utter perfection , bring out your best features and disguise the worst!
My contour and highlighter of choice is my Sleek contour kit in Light or medium depending on the time of year! 

Above are two pictures the left is me with the appropriate products ready to contour and highlight my face,and on the right is me after contouring and highlighting! 

These are a few examples of light contouring and highlight that I did on a collegue of mine with a light day makeup! 

CONTOUR-(contouring is the key to shading and sculpting, the darker shade makes things look smaller)
HIGHLIGHT-(highlighting brings out the desired features ,the lighter shade helps to make things stand out over the dark creating contrast which sculpts the face to perfection ) 

Step by step on how I do this:

1.) Apply your base! 
Foundation , concealer Ect , do your normal makeup ruitine as usual! 

2.) Begin applying contour - 
There are various places to contour the main one being to accentuate the cheekbones , apply this (cream/powder) contour right through from your ears the the centre of your cheek right below the cheekbone , apply this lightly because you can always build up you don't want to look like you've  caked ciment on your face! Lol 
Want your forehead to appear smaller ? Simply apply your contour to the outside arches of the forehead going to the middle and blending outwards towards the hairline. 
Slimmer nose? apply two lines on each side of the nose joing them with a "U" at the tip and blend very well outwards. 
Want a more defined jawline , simply apply the contour to your jawline in a straighline along the entire jaw and blend down to the neck. 
Basically anywhere you want to make "smaller" you can even apply a small amount below the bottom lip to give it that more plump look!  

3.) Begin Highlighting-
Now highlighting is to bring out your features so now ...
Apply to the centre of the nose between the two contour lines and blend down it'll give it that perfect slimming look to the nose. 
Apply below the eyes for the brightened open eye look. 
Apply above the cheekbones right at the "Apple" for heightened cheekbones! 
Some between the brows and below the arch of the brows , for extra definition.
Also some in the cuspids bow to help achieve that Angelina Jolie lip ;) ! 
And lastly you can apply some to the centre of your chin to make it look that extra bit perfect! 
Take a look at your final look and you'll definitely see how amazingly sculpted and flawless your face is looking!

Mystic Purple

Well hello everybody! 
Today I'll be showing a purple smokey eye look that I created with my Royal Cosmetics pallette that I very luckily received this Christmas! 
I'll be showing you the look and all the products that I used to make it possible!
This is the final look! 

I did my normal face ruitine as usual using the products below.
1.)sleek contour kit in light(heavily applied) 
2.)collection 2000 concealer (colour rubbed of so I can't remember for the life of me right now )-sorry :( 
-Rimmel wake me up foundation in soft beige.
3.)Clinique blusher (very lightly applied) in the shade 01 peony
4.)Sleek creme to powder in coffee bean I personally use this for the brows (gives excellent definition)! 

1.)This royal cosmetics pallette is 
highly pigmented and super shimmery! 
I personally think the colours are gorgeous and they mix together and blend so perfectly. ( compact brings 15 gorgeous shades)
2.)my go to Gel eyeliner -Maybelline New York in 01 black
3.)Maybelline Rocket volum (not my Favorite I have to say !) It's a pain in the backside to get of the lashes also, I just don't think it works very well on my eyelashes. 
4.) my individual Maybelline shadow for the inner corners and under the eyebrow arch I don't know the shade but I'm assuming it's called (168A)
5.) for my lips I simple lined and filled with the MUA intense colour in Caramel Nougat (super affordable and gorgeous! At £1.00 only ! Bargain or what!!) 
And now a final close up of the eyes  and face for you lovely people!

The Perks of 2014...

My 2014 was filled with ups and downs! 
But I think this has been one of the best yet "complicated" years for me personally, I've met some amazing people along the way, experienced some pretty darn exciting  things and had a full on blast with my incredible family and friends ! 
From celebrating birthdays , to summer adventures to fully 100% realising  what I want to be and do with my life! 
I'm going to just briefly Point out some of the perks of 2014 ! >.< 

Friends  & Family <3

These guys...
Well how am i gonna Start , I love my mates and the fam to bits ,some I've known a lot longer than others but even the most recent also have a special place in my heart! Lets Just say my year would of been more than crap if it wasn't for this lot, all the memories we've made, the nights out and drunken nights in, the regular coffee meet ups, the birthdays ,the fact that whenever we are together it's amazing in all aspects ! 
Also the family reunions, the family BBQs ,the cousin meet ups! 
My friends and family have literally made my year worth while , they manage to put a smile on my face every single time we are reunited!  even at bad times! I'm one lucky girl to have people as amazing as they are!!!

College and college chumms <3 
I've loved this year  to say the least , the amazing friends I've made the fun hours of singing and giggling in class , the point where we had to physically get out the class before the lecturer got the chance to send us out!
The scaring people in public after creating freeky makeup looks , the fun designs and looks we get to do on each other , learning our personal style and  evolving at each passing hour! 
I've learnt a lot and met a lot of great people! Love my colly chumms!!!

The hot summer air , the beaches the rivers and lakes the long walks the sunsets the parties the tans, I wish it was like that everyday ! Life would be Soo perfect. 
I cannot wait for this summer 2015 to arrive! 
And get to reunite with all these amazing people once again! :D
