Jesy Nelson, No More Sad Songs - Get The Look

15 April
Little Mix have done it again with another amazing music video and can we just talk about how incredibly pretty all 4 of them look! Although they are 4 completely different makeup looks there is a certain theme to their make up with red/pink tones and I was just so drawn to Jesy's in particular (heart eye emoji). I love a pink toned eye look so when I saw the video I literally recreated the look the same day using my ABH Modern Renaissance palette and I was actually pretty happy with how it turned out!

As per Jesy's skin looks absolutely flawless in this video so I decided to go quite full coverage in attempt to look as good as she does. To achieve this I used the following products:

- Laura Mercier Translucent Powder to set my under eyes
- L'oreal Infallible 24hr Matte Powder to mattify the rest of my face
- Topshop Blush in Dream Phone

- ABH Modern Renaissance Palette - Buon Fresco as a transition shade, Love Letter in my crease and Venetian Red all over the lid
- Benefit Ka Brow in Shade 4 


Which of the girls make up is your favourite?

How I Clean My False Eyelashes

12 April
False lashes are a necessity in my make up collection, however I have never been one to spend too much money on them as chances are I'll only get a few uses out of them before I have to throw them away because of mascara and glue build up which is why I thought i'd share with you how I save money on lashes and get as many uses out of the pairs I have. Of course one pair isn't going to last a life time and I do regularly purchase new ones - it just makes each purchase a lot more justifiable to me if I can get more than one use!

All you need for this beauty hack is:
- Your false eyelashes
- A small pot
- Some eye make up remover

1. Put a small amount of your eye makeup remover into the pot, just make sure it's enough to cover the lashes when they sit in there.

2. I tend to leave my lashes in remover over night so all the mascara and glue has melted and started to move away from the lashes but you can leave them in there for as little or as long as you like.

3. When you remove your lashes from the eye make up remover place them on a paper towel or a large cotton pad, which ever you have in your house and just dab them gently to remove the excess mascara.

4. This is the most satisfying part - gently pick the glue away from the lash band. You'll probably find you don't have to pick at all it will just come straight off!

5. Finally just dab them with the paper towel again to ensure they're dry and all unwanted product has been removed.

VOILA, your eyelashes will be good as new!

Bare Minerals; Matte vs Gloss

08 April
Bare Minerals is a brand I have always heard good reviews about however I have never been drawn to actually purchase any of their products until now and I'm so glad I did! When I think of Bare Minerals I think natural/powder products which aren't something I tend to use but over the last few months I have been blogger after blogger raving about a particular lip gloss so of course - I caved.

When purchasing the gloss I also came across their matte lip products too and I just couldn't resist! The pigmentation of these products seriously impressed me. The colours are beautiful and are extremely long lasting - I'm so in love with the formula's. The gloss is so smooth and shiny yet not too sticky which I love as there's nothing worse than wearing lip gloss and everything sticking to it. The shade I picked up in the gloss is Groovy which is a soft beige with a hint of pink and is perfect for everyday!

I have always been more into a matte lip which is why I had to pick up one of their matte liquid lip colours too and I can't even describe to you how comfortable and creamy this product is - it completely threw me off as it almost feels like a mousse it's so smooth. The shade I picked up is a muted pink/mauve and it's called Boss. Although the gloss doesn't smell like much at all, the matte lip colour smells like heaven with a subtle vanilla/chocolate scent.

The packaging for both these products is so cute, it's simple yet pretty! I love the way Bare Minerals has matched the finish to the tube with the product inside - the gloss has a shine to it and the matte lip colour starts with a shine at the bottom and develops up into a frosted/matte finish.

Have you tried Bare Minerals before?
