Good evening wonderful! 

Hope you’ve all had a fantastic day! I’ve been out to buy some studio lighting and tripod in preparation for my youtube makeup routines. Unfortunately I’m in between moving house and my room has no space for the back drop so won’t be for a while yet. I’m a little bit in limbo at the moment! I did use my lighting for taking the pictures of this look. And i love it! I highly recommend looking into getting some studio lighting. Or even a lamp with a fluorescent bulb. I used to use the light from my no7 light up mirror when i first started taking photos, it did the job.

This makeup look is what i like to call simple yet glam. it doesn’t take very long but looks great and perfect for day or night. If i was going out i would probably add a darker lip, like a vibrant red.

I really do love this look, It’s so pretty and girly. Normally i don’t wear pink lips but lately I’ve been warming up to them.

Brows: My brows were done using the Anastasia Beverly hills dip brow in ebony, as you know i use this product a lot, i’m not really switching makeup around at the minute because i’m really liking my current products.

Eyeliner: My eyeliner is done using Rimmel London glam eyes liner. I’ve spent so much money trying to find the perfect liner for me and it all comes down to this one. I love it, i find it so easy to use and its a great price! I think it’s around 6 – 7 pounds? image3-3

Eyeshadow: I used my Zoeva cocoa blend palette for my eyeshadow, i’ve been totally besotted by it! I’ve literally not been using anything else.  I love the colours and pigmentation. Gosh it’s amazing!

Lips: For my lips i used the NYX soft matte lip cream in the shade cannes. I love these lip creams, i have like 4! Eventually i intend to have them all. They’re lighter than lipstick but still amazing colour and vibrancy. They’re simple to use and last a good few hours.

Applied foundation, concealer and contoured using benefit hoola bronzer. I did bake my face today for the first time in ages. If you don’t know what that means it’s basically applying a layer of powder on your highlight points and leaving it for ten minutes or so then brushing it off with a powder brush. To do this i used ben nye banana powder which is what they say kim kardashian uses. Its great! But obviously that part is optional.

And thats it folks!  Hope you enjoyed reading. As always would love to know your thoughts on this makeup look!

Until tomorrow, Good night!

Lots of love,
