Happy Monday bloggers! + My non blogging readers of course!
I went on a little bit of a makeup spending spree over the weekend and as you saw by my Primark Beauty Haul Post! I like to keep my spends cost effective because as you can imagine makeup can be an expensive habit!
I actually got sucked into a stunning Kiko Cosmetics shop where a single eyeshadow will set you back £5.90! The price was reflected in the quality of the makeup, the pigment and texture was out of this world! But if you’re on a budget, luxury has to wait! I will be back though 😏!
Anyway… I picked up this beautiful Revolution Pro Palette for £8!
£8 FOR 18 SHADES ARE U MAD!
I love all of these shades and will post a swatch pic at some point on my Instagram @lollyhm.fashion
So today it’s only right that I show you an eyeshadow look I created using this palette!
I used shades, Riches, Personal and Discrepancy 😍! I only managed to take a few selfies before we went out so sorry you can’t see the whole eye but I think you get the picture 😏. Here’s a video too…
Who do I think I am haha! Peep the matte lip gloss too from my Primark Nude Lip Kit for £3! I think I killed it this month with the bargain buys to be honest!
Let me know what you think!

You heard it!… I must have started contouring around two years ago when I got my first contouring palette for Christmas!
I fell in love instantly, and I looked up a couple of tutorials on how to contour, nothing major though because I thought, it’s easy ya’ll I got this! Fast forward to around a month ago I saw an image that legit changed my life! Ok maybe not my life but it definitely upped my makeup game by at least 30%!
This was the image:
Thank you to the human who made this image. Before this I was legit contouring my nose thinking what the hell is this penis looking junk all up on my face, I was supposed to be making my nose look better not making it look like a sausage! This got me wondering how many other contour loving people have been doing the exact same thing!
The new contour technique worked like a dream on my nose as soon as I tried it! So I decided to put together a couple of images myself to show you guys the difference it makes!
Just focusing on the nose here (as I was also in the process of contouring the rest of my face during this process) The top two images show the ‘penis contour’ as I like to call it. You can see that when it is blended, it doesn’t actually make for a very appealing look! The bottom row of images shows you the ‘anchor style’ contour!.. I just made that name up for the purpose of this post so let me know if it has another name 🤣!
Can you see the difference? I really think it makes my nose look a lot more appealing! It is also a lot easier to add highlight to the better defined lighter areas too, which again adds to the overall improvement!
I found a throwback image of the old contour style, and an image from yesterday using the correct technique just to show you guys the difference!
With this new found knowledge, I really feel that I have improved my skills in the makeup department and would love to know your thoughts on the topic!
