Ardell Wanna Get Lucky Gel Eyeliner, £6.99, Look Fantastic.

Supercharge your lashes to reach their full dimension!

beauty

Get the ultimate multi-dimensional lashes perfect for lift, in triple thicknesses with extreme volume and curl with Kiss Triple Push-Up lashes, £7.99. They are tapered to give you a super full yet fluttery look combining three styles into one lash set, with a super structured lash band too. The lashes are proving popular already – Cardi B wore them herself to the 2018 Mat Gala! Buy them in Superdrug stores nationwide or online at superdrug.com

I also took a trip to search out a new foundation. Souring the beauty counters of Debenhams and John Lewis to find a matte or semi-matte finish and a shade that doesn’t take fair skin to orange tinged levels as it really doesn’t look good on most let alone a ginger! I finally found a really helpful counter assistant who took her time to really match my skin, and introduced me to Yves Saint Laurent All Hours Liquid Foundation, £35. The coverage is seamless and can be built up depending on your preferred coverage. I really love the fact that I can wear this lighter as well as full coverage – taking my look from day-to-night without changing product. (Plus you don’t need a primer either!)

Buy yours online or in-store at John Lewis and online at LookFantastic.com

💕The #Iconic3 palette by @makeuprevolution is by far my favourite budget palette! Strong blendable pigments including metallic, mattes and shimmers for just a tiny price of £4!

Who can refuse especially when it’s a dead on dupe for the #naked3 palette! My purse certainly prefers it, and I’m not sure no matter how much I love #UD that I’d really want to spend out any more!

Devoted to your liner? We try this for Spring!

Day in day out we wear liner, generally black, and we hope to get a good baby flick at the end… if this happens… Hooray!!! I’m sure like all of you – it doesn’t always happen that simply! 

Now we usually don’t stray from black liner but we were really intrigued by Rouge Bunny Rouge and their Devotion Ink Quartz Eyeliner in ‘Tanzanite Essence’. This is a gorgeous bluey lavender shade alike the gemstone – Google it! Its rarer than a diamond and we’re obsessed!

This liner is metallic and has a shimmer – just like you’d get with a stone! The application is ever so easy with a sponge tipped wand and it glides straight on with no need for extra lining for colour depth! We’d love it to be waterproof, that’s our only wish for this – and for it to be available as an eyeshadow too! 

It’s going to be out big wear for the spring. Pastel perfect and subtle (sort  of) but perfect for day to day wear, meaning you can transform your day makeup to a nice evening smoky look maybe by creating an ombre liner (Tanzanite to black) into a blue smoked eye! *WHY DID’NT I THINK OF THIS BEFORE*

P.S. Be a Workout beauty…

If you’re a gym bunny that likes to not bare all at the gym, and goes down the makeup to the gym route, why not try the new range from Primark Beauty?

Stand up to sweat with the new PS…Workout cosmetics range from Primark beauty – lightweight, long wearing, natural finish make up for lips, eyes and skin. The 11-piece collection features sweat and splash proof formulas in pretty, neutral colours & brights to enhance your natural beauty whilst withstanding your workout. Hero products include a protecting lip balm with SPF 50 for outdoor workouts, sweat resistant powder for a confident, matte complexion and waterproof eyeliner for subtle definition.

We have tested out some of the range to see if it really stands up to longwear, and whether we actually like it! First up we try the Liquid lipstick in Cheerleader and the matching lip liner – a total barg for £3! – Cheerleader is a bright in your face pink – I don;t quite think I could wear this in a gym ever to be totally honest – You’s spot me a mile off! But I have to say, the liner goes on smoothly with ease, and the lip fix liquid lipstick, you only need a little bit and you have full pout coverage. I found it a tad drying so make sure you use a moisturing primer before hand to help! Next up the foundation stick – it needs a tad warming up before it goes on, but this gives good quick coverage, and blends fairly well! For the fairer girls I hope there’s some lighter shades too, but i’m sure there will be! Again, bargain price, so the quality is great for such a price, and finally the eyeliners, are non budging and waterproof, smooth application, lovely and dark too, not muted by the dampness of the waterline.

Overall a fab collection – I’d just choose the more muted shades if I chose to be the make-up wearing gym bunny! Thumbs up Primark!

Liquid lipsticks, £2; Waterproof eyeliners, £1; Lipliner, £1; Mattifying powder, £2; Waterproof mascara, £2; Foundation stick, £2.50; Lip balm, £1, available nationwide at Primark Stores

Oh the ShaaaDes!

We were lucky enough to receive the ShaanXO 9 color eyeshadow & 9 color lip palette for Christmas from our beauty obsessed friends! So of course we had to try it out and share with you just how we feel about it! 

It was brought for me as the shadows match my complexion and i tend to do nudier smoked looks day to day and on nights out! Best used with a good primer to make the pigments really pop, we created the look above with and all over base to brow line of top left nude shade, then all over the lid in the centre top nude shimmer. We then use the right middle shade in the outer crease and the underneath outer eye to give the darker berry / maroon smoke, blending over the top and onto the brow bone the gorgeously shimmery top right shade, finishing off with out trusty maybelline eyeliner and a dash of mascara!

We found the shades just blend so effortlessly together and are soo buildable – don’t panic on looking that the orangey shade is that bright – its buildable – we use it softly as more of a peach with no primer! As being ginger I cant carry off orange looks to save my life!!
