My Makeup Progress 🤩

Happy Hump Day People!

It is one fine day in the UK, the sun is shining and I am feeling positive!

One reason for this is because I just compared two of my makeup looks, one from last month and one from yesterday and I’m like WHATTTTT! Haha I know modest. But legit I’m so happy with how much I have improved in such a small space of time!

I have been letting you guys know about my cut Crease dramas, but the past week has involved me miraculously improving on my precision and I’m literally loving life.

Practice really is the key to being successful in anything in life. I also realised that my makeup photography game has upped too! Unbelievably both of these photographs were taken with the same camera. My iPhone 7+ to be specific. I legit thought the camera quality was at fault in the first photograph but I was clearly just taking rubbish photos 🤣!

I can still see a lot of areas that need improving, like my brows sorry people but it’s nice to reflect on the progress I’ve made so far!

What do you think!?

Makeup Monday: 100% GLAM

Hey everyone!

Holla at all of my new followers! Seriously love you guys!

It’s Makeup Monday and I’m pretty excited because if you have been following my makeup Monday’s you will know that last week I wasn’t all that happy with the look I produced! But it is a new week and I am feeling great about this one!

Tadaaa! So yeah I went FULL GLAM! I loved working some glitter into the eyes because it just makes you feel like a princess.

I also used a little more blush than usual to really make my features pop.

I blended my eyeshadow from pink to purple to blue and added matching pink glitter to the inner lid. I also used some of the pink eyeshadow on top of my lipstick and added gloss so I could get the colour match on point. Slightly odd but it works haha!

I look slightly dewy which wasn’t something I was planning on, I’m more of a Matte with Glow gal but hey!

I hope you like this one, and if you do let me know in the comments below! I would also love to know which colours/themes you would like to see more of!

If you enjoyed visiting my blog, please give it a follow if you haven’t already!

Lots of Love

Thought of the day: Living Your Best Life!

I was just scrolling on Facebook when I came across this amazing article: The Top 5 Regrets of the Dying

Yes I know, totally morbid. But the top regret has got me shoooook, and not because I was shocked by it, but because I have been thinking about this topic a lot this new year!

So one of the top regrets that the dying share is this…

“1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.”

“This was the most common regret of all. When people realise that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most people had not honoured even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made. Health brings a freedom very few realise, until they no longer have it.”

– And this is why I will forever encourage myself and my little family to do what they love! If you are not hurting anyone, forget the standards and social norms other people set, forget judgement, because living your best life is being happy with who you are and what you’re doing!

Imagine being on your death bed and realising your whole life was trying to fit into what everyone else expected of you. Or having not done the things that people thought you couldn’t. Even though it would have been your absolute dream!

Which is why I plan to continue blogging and building up my Instagram page, because it is something I love to do!

Style Saturday 😏

Good Afternoon bloggers!

It appears that the UK is experiencing a bit of a heatwave the past few days and I’ve been taking full advantage of it!

Including adding some colour to my outfits!

I actually bought this outfit from DEPOP a long time ago, if you’re not familiar it is an app on which you can sell items new and old via your smart phone! I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it (because obviously the seller had the colour match on point) and snapped it up for something silly like £10!

I wore it on a holiday a few years back and completely forgot about it!

I did feel a bit self conscious wearing something so bright but sometimes you just have to think oh well and go for it don’t you!

What’s your go to summer colour?

My Husband is Cool: Full Set Music Video

Hey everyone!

So if you’ve been following me for long enough you will know that 1: I’m married, and 2: My Husband runs an awesome YouTube channel called Kie for King 👑

I am really excited about his most recent music video because I think the song is awesome and I make a cheeky little appearance!

His video editing skills are insane and each one brings something slightly different to the table!

So if y’all have a hot minute check out the channel and let me know what you think! Not unlike blogging, YouTube is a really hard nut to crack so if any of y’all could take the time out to watch just one video that would be amazing!

And if you do have a YouTube account then subscribe! 😍!

That’s all for today!

Makeup Monday: Is it a halo though?!

Hey everyone!

Today I’m going to be sharing a makeup look with you, and I’ve gotta be honest, I’m not sure if I like it. I put a lot of effort into it and on this particular occasion I don’t really feel like it shows!

I really wanted to get a Halo Cut Crease down on the first attempt. I didn’t haha. Obviously, because these things take time.

I do like the look, but compared to the picture in my head it just isn’t living up to my expectations unfortunately!

I wanted to match the white dots I added to my brow line with a white line on my lip. I added some gold glitter to the outer line of that and it ended up looking like I smudged the white everywhere on the photos so that’s another reason why I’m not 100% happy.

I re-applied the white lip line without the glitter and it looks a lot cleaner so that made me feel better!

Obviously though this is the process. Some looks I love and others I learn how to improve them for next time!

I feel like I need to be a bit braver and blend some darker shades into the halo to make the lighter colours pop!

Let me know what you think! Any advice is always greatly appreciated!

Lots of Love
