200 FOLLOWER GIVEAWAY- Fenty Beauty💄

Hello there beautiful people! After hitting 100 followers I decided that I must be more prepared for when I hit 200! I’ve come to the conclusion that the perfect way to do this is to host my very first giveaway!

I have done my research and decided that the perfect giveaway prize has got to be the beautiful:

Fenty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick Shade:Spanked

The Middle Shade

(The middle shade)

Isn’t it just a work of art 😍!

Fenty beauty is fairly new on the makeup scene created by none other than THE bad gal riri, or Rihanna, whichever you prefer! Fenty has been applauded for its diversity and inclusivity of all skin colours. I chose this particular shade because it is so versatile, I can see this colour being compatible with lots of makeup looks and the name is pretty awesome too! The packaging is absolutely gorgeous and I just knew one of my lovely followers could make a great blog post out of this!

If you would like to enter to be in with a chance of winning the giveaway, there are a few simple rules to follow!

1: Like this post and follow my blog!

2: Write your own blog about this giveaway and why you would like to win!

Again, thank you all for the love and kindness I have received since I started blogging! It means the world to me!

100 followers and how I got them!

Today I woke up to my 100 follower award!

And I feel like throwing a party! I knew blogging would be hard work and take lots of commitment and consistency to get me where I wanted to be, but the reward of an increasing following is coming sooner than I expected, so that’s just great!

Some of you may have thousands of followers, and my number may be but a pinch of salt to you. On the flip side some of you might only have a couple of followers to your name so far and want to know more about how you can hit that 💯! So here are my three top tips for successful blogging!

1: Post consistently

As much as blogging is done for fun, if you’re wanting to build up a good following, you need to give something back! Regular posts will keep your followers interested. If you only blog every couple of weeks, your blog isn’t going to gain any momentum!

Set yourself the task of sitting down and working out how regularly you can write a good blog post. You might find you can write one every Monday, Thursday and Sunday. Or like me, you could blog daily! It just depends on your schedule and how you decide to fit blogging in! I wake up a little earlier than I used to now, so that I can make sure I have a good blog posted before I go to work!

2: TALK TO OTHER BLOGGERS!

I can not say this enough! Your blog is ran by you and you alone. But the blogging world is not a lonely place to live… it is rich with information and people that have the same interests as you, and indeed have something to share. Get out into the blogging community and share your thoughts on others posts, if you like the blog, give it a follow. It is that simple. I have picked up so many tips from my fellow bloggers and I have had fun reaching out to others to share a kind word.

If you’re not reaching out to other people, why should people take an interest in what you’re saying? We can all grow together, imagine how good it would feel if you rose to success along with the people who stuck with you from the beginning? HELL YEAH!

3: Make use of the tags!

This is a pretty simple one, when you’ve finally got to the end of your blog post, make sure you tag the topics your blog covers! If you write about fashion, tag fashion. This way people who are interested in he same subjects as you will see your posts! It’s no good blogging into thin air, you will find it a lot harder to gain readers this way! You can add up to 15 tags per post so USE THEM!

_________________________________________________

As a final note I would just like to thank every single one of my followers! You’re awesome, and a special thanks to those of you that take the time out to read my posts and share your likes and thoughts! It means the world to me, and to say thank you I will be doing a 200 follower giveaway so keep your eyes peeled for that because I’m going to be choosing some great beauty related prizes!

Eye Shapes: What’s yours?

Eyes are the window to the soul, they say, somehow I believe this. I feel like you can tell a lot about a person through their eyes. What they’ve been through or how they’re feeling.

What do you think my eyes say in the cover photo?

So today I will be talking about different eye shapes and some celebrities who have the same! See if you can spot yours!

Narrow Eyes:

Narrow eyes are seen as mysterious and sexy, paired with a subtle smoky eye they can look fierce! Blake Liveley is a classic example of the narrow eye.

Almond Eyes:

Almond eyes are seen as feminine, exotic and versatile. Almost any makeup look looks good on these eyes! They are wide, yet taper in at the corners, Angelina Jolie has beautiful almond eyes as seen below!

Round Eyes:

If you have round eyes, you are said to seem more open and friendly in nature, they look youthful and bright. My example for the round eye today would have to be the gorgeous Katy Perry:

Deep Set Eyes:

Deep set eyes give the appearance of a very prominent brow and cheek bone which oozes confidence. The likes of Kim Kardashian rock this eye shape and use it to their advantage to exaggerate their stunning face shape!

Of course there are plenty more eye shapes out there so have a look if you’re interested!

What’s your favourite eye shape in the line up?Let me know in the comments below!

Review: Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation

Hey hey people! Today I will be reviewing my all time favourite foundation, so let’s kick it off with some information:

Product: RIMMEL STAY MATTE FOUNDATION

My colour: 200 Soft Beige

Price: £6.49

Foundation is the base of any makeup look, if you don’t find the right foundation for you it can literally ruin what you apply on top! Some people like a barely there type, others like theirs thick and creamy.

Different skin types will react to different foundations, if you have dry skin you may want to try a BB cream with a hint of moisturiser. If you have greasy skin you may want to go for something a little more matte.

I have combination skin so I moisturise dry areas before I apply! I’m also very fair so really if I wanted to colour match I would go for Ivory, but I like to inject a bit of colour with my foundation so I go a shade or two darker!

This foundation is moderately thick with excellent coverage, especially for the price of £6.49. It gives a completely matte finish and I haven’t yet found a foundation better. I tried a different one for a couple of months and I honestly felt pretty rough looking the whole time I was using it!

Above is what it looks like on!

Like I said, if you want to get your perfect makeup look, you need a good base and I would 100% recommend this product, you really don’t have to pay £30 per bottle to get a finish you’re happy with!

I give this product a 10/10!

Thank you: From a new blogger! 🤩

I started this blog with silent hopes that it could eventually become my part time job.

I have been seriously blogging for around 12 days (and what I mean by that is I have posted at least one blog every day for 12 days) and the response I have gotten in that time is nothing short of magical to me! I started up this blog in December and I wrote a few posts but I wasn’t consistent, mainly because I didn’t know what I actually wanted to write about!

Once I decided I wanted to use my blog and Instagram (@loleihm) in unison to talk about my love of beauty, fashion, lifestyle and psychology it became a lot easier to think of ideas for posts.

I have managed to gain 70 followers in under two weeks!

This makes me so incredibly happy 😆! Every bit of support I get just makes me feel so good! So I suppose I just wanted to check in with ya’ll to say a big thank you for following, commenting and showing love to a new blogger! It honestly means the world to me.

The feedback I have received has only made me feel more determined to keep going! I have gained so much knowledge about blogging, interacting and taking photographs in this short space of time and I plan to keep learning and continuing to develop my skills as a writer and blogger.

If you’ve just started blogging and are looking for some feedback, for someone to read your posts or just some more views I would love for you to paste your link in the comments so we can get some more interaction going, because at the end of the day blogging is about saying what you want to say but it’s also about connecting with the wider writer community!

Lots of love!
