Poptastic: Summer Look Jade Jazz, Cherry Sour and Atomic Aqua

Good morning guys and happy Monday again. I can't believe how fast Mondays come around. 

In the last post that I did I with this Poptastic palette I said that I would do an other summer look for you and here it is. I really love how it turned out. I didn't plan on what shades I was going to use I just went with the flow. This is what I came up with. 

This is the shades that I used to achieve this look. 

On the lid: on the very middle I used Jade Jazz and in the inner and the outter corner I used Atomic Aqua. I didn't realise that these two shades would be very simular and in the photos it looks like I have one shade. On my tear ducked  I used Gold Mine to enhance the Jade Jazz and the Cherry Sour that I places on my lower lash line. 

Bottom left: Jade Jazz, Cherry Sour and Aromic Aqua. 

Face: for my base I used a BB cream to have a nice light base. I didn't even highlight or bronze my face just because I didn't want to cake up my face with loads of products. I hate the feeling that my face is very heavy with all he make up. 

Blush: Colletion in Bashful 
Mascara: Rimmel Scandaleyes Retoro Glam 
Eyebrows: Avon eyebrow pencil in blonde 
Gel eyeliner: Essence in 01. Midnight In Paris 
Lips: Avon in Naughty but Nice

What do you think of this look? 

Thank you all for visiting!

Outfit of the day and Face of the day.

Hey guys! How are yer week going mine is kinda rough to be honest. 

Today I am going to share with you my outfit and my makeup from yesterday. I was ment to write this post yesterday but it went out of my head! 

Staring with the top and working my way down. Sorry now but I didn't have enough moemory in my Ipod to take pictures of everything but Ill just have to tell you what they were. 

Face: I used a Nivea mosturiser and on top of that my BB cream. Now I would tell you the name of it but I can't even say it. It's not one of the well known ones. I got this BB cream in a pound shop and it was only 1.50. Ya I know you are raising your eyebrows and thinking what did she do that for. I have never used a BB cream before and I had heard so much about them so I just got a cheap one to see what was so great about them. To be honest with you for just 1.50 it's pretty good. I might do a review on it soon. 

Brows: I have an Avon eyebrow pencil that I use on a daily basis and it works just fine for me. I don't do to much to my brows because there isn't a lot to do to them. 

Eyes: On my lid I used a very light eyeshadow to just brighten it up. Just above my crease I used Naked from the Naked palette. On my crease I used a little bit of Buck to define the crease. For the high light shade I used Vergin on the brow bone and in the inner eye to make me look that little bit awake. The eyeliner that used was the Essence Gel eyeliner in Midnight. It's such a black liner that I love it and its also waterproof. Which is always a good thing in my book. My mascara was a Rimmel RotroGlam. I have it a while now. 

Lips: I used a pink lip liner again I don't know the name of it as I have a good while and the name is well rubbed off. 

White tank top (don't know where it's from) 
Jumper I got it in a secon hand shop. I am not that big in getting things from charity shops but something they do have fantastic clothes that were never wore or still have there tags on from the original shop. This jumper had its tag on and I really liked the light pink colour. 

Jeans: ( Pennys) I really would have wore shorts if I knew it was going to be so hat out. I was passing out all day. 

Shoes: ( they were a present so I don't know we're they were got) 
I love this sandals. They are so comfy! 

Thank you everyone who read my posts. 

I hope you all have a nice week.

Outfit Of The Day: First ever playsuit

Hey guys. Happy Friday! Today's post is an exciting one for me. It's a outfit of he day. I have never bought a playsuit before just because I didn't really like them. 

I had one picked out but it turned out to be too small for me so I went on a hunt to get an other one. 

I was in NewLook and I seem a fab maxi dress I bought it and found there was like three holes in the back so I had to bring it back and it was just my luck that it was the last one. As I was looking for a new maxi dress I came across this playsuit and I fell in live with it. 

It's a little big on me but I don't really mind as it kept me nice and cool yesterday in the very hot sun. I love the pattern. I am most cent ably going to get an other one. As I said this one was from NewLook and it was on sale for €10. It was a bargain if you ask me. 

Sorry for the scary looking toes I need to do them again. These are the shoes that I wore yesterday. I love hem shoes but they killed my toes. 

That was my outfit yesterday I hope you liked it. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Nail Of The Day: Ciaté Mini

Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope your week so far has been much better then mine. 

About two weeks ago I bought a magazine and with it came Ciaté mini nail  polish in Pillow Fight and caviar pearls to match in Sweet Dreams. I haven't used the caviar pearls yet! For some reason I think all the pearls will fall off and it will just a waist of my time. 

I need to look up on YouTube on how these pearls last and so on. I did try the Pillow Fight polish and to be honest with you I wasn't too impressed. There is a great colour pay off but I needed to use a thick layer of polish. To be honest with you I don't think I would buy a full size as its very expensive polish. 


I know there is people out there that love Ciaté but I wasn't too happy with it. Maybe it's because a mini version and there wasn't put as much effort in to them. One thing I forgot to say is there is a fab shine. I didn't use any top coat as I was rushing out when I applied it. That did impress me too. 

Do you have Ciaté polishes? What do you think of them. 

Thanks for visiting

Daily Life: Life Update

Hi everyone. I know I haven't blogged in two weeks or longer at this stage but life has been so busy right now. On top of that I haven't been myself really. 

I have some family things going on which I won't go into at the moment. I might write a post about it some day for people  who may be having similar problems. I am currently getting some help so I should be getting only feet. 

Rhys' birthday is only around the corner and we are planning to go to London for a week but I still haven't got my passport Rhys doesn't either. Tickets have to be booked soon if we would like to get a good deal. I haven't been out of the country in about 8 yrs. I moused out oh my boyfriends 21 a few years ago I had to work and I had paid for the tickets. 

For some reason I am not getting enough rest during the night and when I wake up I want to go back to bed its like I have been drinking for the past three days. I am taken vitamins but they don't seem to be working. 

The other day I found out that I live very close to a friend that passed away nearly 6 years go cousin. Anyway I went down to have a chat and all we did was talk about her cousin who I went to school with. We were very close friends and I miss him very much. Anyway since the day I was with his cousin I have been very upset as it opened up old wounds for me. I had found out information that I didn't know. Other stuff that I didn't take in properly at the time. I have been walking around the house like a zombie. 

I don't want to putting a damper on your day. So ill leave it here and my next post will be a happy one. 

Thank you all for reading my post it means a lit to me.
