Hey all. I hope you’re having a fab weekend so far! I wanted to share with you a look I did for a makeup collab I recently took part in with a bunch of lovely women over on Instagram. I had sooo much fun doing this! I chose the Greek Goddess, Nyx, Goddess of the night for my look.
I’ve used black pressed eyeshadow and blue eyeshadow pigment (both by K Rose B Cosmetics) to portray the night and silver pigment (also K Rose B Cosmetics) to portray the stars. Love these eyeshadows so much and looked like a sparkly vampire afterwards. 😂 Not that I minded haha. The choice of Goddess was also a nod to one of my fave YA book series, House of Night by P.C. and Kristin Cast. If you’re familiar with the series then you’ll know she plays such a major part throughout the series.
Let me know what you think of this look in the comments. There’s so much more that I wanted to but I just wasn’t able to. 😭
Hop on over to K Rose B Cosmetics to check out their amazingly pigmented (I’m not kidding! They really are crazy pigmented) eyeshadow pans and lashes! The eyeshadows pans are 36mm in size, so bigger than standard pans, and also come with an iron sticker so that you can put them in your magnetic palettes!
Eyeshadows = £4
Magnetic palette = £5 (currently showing out of stock)
Lash applicator = £4.50
Lashes = £8.50 – £12
Here’s an example of a couple of the eyeshadows and how pigmented they are (pics taken from the site).
It was a birthday gift and was bought from Beauty Bay. It is such a gorgeous palette with beautiful shades of golds, browns and nudes. I love that it has both matte and shimmer shades in it. The pigment in the shades is fantastic and the formula is soft and buttery. There is a little fall out but putting some translucent powder under your eye area before you start your eye makeup will take care of that then once you’re done, you can brush it away and none will be left on your foundation. Would definitely recommend this palette plus at £22, it’s not a bad price either! Especially if you compare it to Urban Decay’s Naked palettes!
I was also bought a Morphe Brushes brush set for Christmas too. I used them today to do this look and they’re amazing! They’re so soft and it’s so easy to apply shadow and blend using these brushes! If you’re looking for a new set, I’d definitely recommend these!
OMG Beauty Bay has finally stocked the 35R palette! I’ve been dreaming about this beauty! It’s so gorgeous!
Look at those shades! The beige/nude shade is gonna make those shimmers pop! I’ve been admiring this on the Morphe website so I’m so excited that Beauty Bay finally has it in stock! Now I just need to drop major hints for someone to buy me it for my birthday lol!
Hiya! Wow I can’t believe the week is nearly over! Today’s look is a really simple one. I really didn’t feel like going the whole hog with makeup today so just went for a bare face with a coat of mascara and a bold lip. The mascara I’ve been using lately is Roller Lash by Benefit. I love this mascara! There’s no clumps and it beautifully separates the lashes! The lippy I chose to wear today is a liquid lipstick by Morphe Brushes in the shade “Morphe”.
The shade is actually brighter than I thought it would be when I first ordered it. The lip swatch on the site made it look to be more of a deep blood red. However, I still really love this shade! The formula of this lipstick is lovely. It goes on so smoothly and doesn’t feel drying at all. It’s got such a lovely scent as well. Vanilla, I think. The staying power is fantastic although it does fade in the centre of the lips when you eat/drink. I found that after wearing it for while it doesn’t crumble like some other brands do. I did find though that it bleeds a little. I think that’s quite common with reds in general mind. I’ve yet to find a red that doesn’t bleed.
I think this will be my go-to statement lippy. I absolutely love it!
I purchased mine from Beauty Bay. At the time there was a sale and it was on offer for around £6.50 but it’s current price is £10.50.
Can I just say how delicious it smelled? Made me wanna eat my own face haha!
I had to wait 20 mins for the mask to work its magic. Then take it off, gently pat the left over gel into my face, and rinse off. It claims to be moisturising and brightening, and it smooths and tightens the skin. My face didn’t feel any tighter but it certainly moisturised it and it looked smooth. I can’t get over how soft my skin felt!! Even Aled commented on how soft it was! Would definitely use this mask again!
I figured washing my hair AFTER the face mask would be an ideal time to do it. After I washed my hair I decided I’d have a go at French braiding my hair. I have to say, I haven’t done this in years and years! I attempted French braided pigtails. I probably haven’t done this since college so that really is quite some years ago! Whenever I do my own hair, I never use a mirror. My eyes get confused haha. So I do it blind. And I don’t use a comb either when I French braid my own hair. It’s just too fiddly! I can do it on other people though because I can see what I’m doing! Anyway, it took me about 10 minutes to do (I had to backtrack a couple of times because it was too loose on places or I’d missed some hair) and I was pretty pleased with the outcome!
I left them in overnight so that my hair would be curly when I took them out today. Have to admit, I kinda didn’t wanna take them out lol. I quite liked them! Thought I would also put a little bit of makeup on today so went for a natural look. Used my ABH Modern Renaissance palette today and I loved how my eyeshadow turned out but sadly didn’t get a decent pic of it because it wasn’t until I’d taken my pics that I’d realised I’d bodged up my eyeliner. Oops! Also wearing my fave lippy today: Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipstick in Celebrity Skin.
I was quite impressed with how the curls turned out! Think I’ll be doing this again for sure! My hair has gotten so long! It’s in dire need of a cut and plenty of layers put back in!
That’s all for today guys. Take care!
Hey guys! How’s your Tuesday going? Today I’m going to talk about a great cruelty free cosmetics brand called Medusa’s Makeup. Their products are also vegan friendly. Yay! I first discovered this brand on Facebook! I was drawn to their bright lipstick/eyeshadow shades and, most importantly, that they are vegan. They were kind enough to send me a lipstick to review (you may have seen my previous post) and, just so you know, all opinions are my own. 😀 I would never be dishonest about a product that I’m reviewing. Now, on to the review…
Above I am wearing Medusa’s lipstick in the shade Triple X. The bright pink is quite the show stopper and will certainly get you noticed! The formulation is gorgeous and so creamy! It’s so moisturising and the pigmentation is amazing! After taking this pic I blotted it and had something to eat and drink and the colour was still so bright! As you can see below:
As you can see, it’s faded a little at the edges and towards the middle of my lips but it’s still going strong! I’d say I had to reapply about 3 hours after the first application which is actually quite good going in my opinion. Overall, I really love this lippy and would definitely like try out more shades!
Medusa’s Makeup also do a monthly subscription box. How fab is that?! You guys know I looove me a subscription box! Would definitely consider buying one of these in the future!
You should pop on by to Medusa’s Makeup and check their products out for yourself! Their prices are really affordable and for us who don’t live in the US it’s free international delivery on orders over $40.
