Today’s Look & Outfit of the Day!

Hello pretties! 馃檪

Does anyone else subscribe to the newsletters from clothing websites and then when they constantly email you with offers of 50% off and free delivery?! For a shopaholic like me, this is dangerous territory, when I see that, I literally can’t help myself, I HAVE TO BUY STUFF! Ahhh!
This is exactly what happened to me on Friday when I received an email from, telling me that there was free delivery and a half price sale. Well, credit card disaster.
On the upside, my order arrived yesterday and I bought this gorgeous skirt which I couldn’t not show you since this season is all about the punk spirit!



Since I was feeling all punky today, obviously I had to match my make up so here it is!


And here’s how I did it..
Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation in Beige
Creme de a Mer Translucent Powder
MUA Bronzed Perfection Bronzer
Benefit Rockateur blush
Urban Decay Naked palette (Naked all over lid, Creep in crease and Virgin as highlight)
MUA Intense Kohl liner in Black
Benefit They’re Real mascara
Kate Moss for Rimmel lipstick in 107

Hope you like it!

Today’s Look!

As you all know, I love a bold lip whether I’m heading off for a night out or doing my weekly shop at Tesco. Everything about an eye-catching lipstick makes you feel better and a bright colour always brightens up the day.
But, today I decided to give the colour a miss (gasp!), and go for the old faithful smokey eye and a clear, (yes clear!) lipgloss! Check it out below…

-Creme de Mer Translucent Powder
-MUA Bronzed Perfection bronzer

Fresh Faced Friday!

Hello my lovelies!

I decided to do a little bit of a tutorial for you today, just a round up of my general, everyday make up routine, hope you enjoy it! 馃檪

So, this is before the magic happens, fresh faced and ready to go! (Scary, I know :p)

So first off, you know I always start with my skincare. So to start with, I applied my Lanc么me Visionnaire serum, Clarins HydraQuench cream because I think coming into the winter time, my skin gets a bit drier so I need that extra little bit of hydration, and finally Clarins Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm purely because it gives the perfect base for lipstick, especially if your wearing a colour. It’s also super moisturising, which is great if you wear a lot of matte lipsticks, like me, and your lips tend to be drier.

So now it’s onto the base. I started with the Porefessional primer from Benefit (great if you have oily/combination skin like me, and open pores as well!), just applied with my fingers on the t-zone. I then buffed Doublewear Light foundation from Est茅e Lauder in 03 into my skin using the Stippling Brush from E.L.F. I also applied the Benefit Bo-ing Concealor (02) using my ring finger onto any little blemishes before dusting Creme de la Mer translucent Loose Powder over my whole face.

Next, onto the Contouring & Highlighting. This is the part people seem to have most difficulty with so ill do a separate tutorial on that later 馃檪 I started by dusting MUA Bronzed Perfection Bronzer onto the higher planes of the face (forehead, cheekbones, nose and chin). Then, apply the bronzer, lightly, (your not trying to look like you need to wash your face!) along the hairline, down each side of the bridge of the nose and underneath the cheekbones and sweep out wards to the hair line. Then, with highlighter, I used Watts Up! from Benefit, apply to the centre of the forehead, brow bones, cheek bones, down the centre of the nose, Cupid’s bow and chin and buff in using a foundation brush. Then, with your blusher, apply lightly to the apples of the cheeks and sweep out towards the hairline.

This should be what your aiming for:

Then it’s onto the exciting part, eyes! 馃檪 I used the Urban Decay Naked Pallete to cereal an everyday smokey eye look. I started by using Sidecar from the centre of the lid outwards, and then applying Naked to the crease.

I them applied Virgin as my highlight, to the inner corner of the eye.

Finally, I used Darkhorse (this is my most used colour in the palette, I blend it with everything!), on the outer crease and lid to add some definition.

Then, I simply added black kohl liner to the top and bottom lash lines and smudged slightly with my fingers, before adding They’re Real mascara from Benefit.

You can see the before and after here too, which I think is pretty amazing, my eyes go from having no lashes at all to almost looking like falsies (in a good way!).

Next, it was onto the brows! You all know i love a strong brow and if you haven’t seen my post on how to do the perfect brows, you can find it here.., but this is what I used today.


Lastly, I added E.L.F’s Moisturising Tinted Lip Balm in Berry and we’re good to go!

This is what you should end up with!

Hope you had fun reading this guys,

Love & Lipstick,

Upcoming Benefit Launches!

Hi guys! 馃檪

So, I know you all know that the new Benefit perfume is released at the end of this month but did you also know that the Bathina spray on body oil is launched on the same day?

The original Bathina comes in a creamy formula that can be rubbed onto the body to give a gorgeous, shimmery glow. The same idea with the new Bathina, except this time it’ll much easier to apply, just spray on after you come out of the shower & your good to glow!

BUT there’s also another top-secret Bene-launch coming this January that I am SO excited about! As an avid Pore-fessional fan, I cannot wait for this, coming out in January. Check it out.. the Porefessional; Agent Zero Shine translucent powder!

Annndddd… Finally, another addition to the B.right skincare range, called Dream Screen. It’s a liquid sunscreen, oil free SPF 25 PA***, the highest sunscreen protection available, coming out in the New Year.

How exciting! 馃檪

Love & Lipstick,
