April Beauty Favourites πŸŒΈ

As its coming up to the end of April I thought that I would do an April favourites blog post as I havn’t done one of these in aaaaages! And these are some of my favourite blogs/vlogs to read and watch.

I’ve been trying out lots of different make up items this month so I thought it would be cool to make that the focus of my favourites.

So, let’s take a look at the beauty bits I’ve been enjoying throughout April 🌼

I’ve tried two new foundations this month, the Maybelline Super stay 24/7 full coverage foundation, in the shade porcelain and Rimmels match perfection foundation in the shade Ivory.

These are both really lovely foundations with great coverage and they are super affordable. The finish of these makes your skin look really flawless and they make a great base for your make up look.

Tanya Burr’s ‘Peony please’ illuminating powder.

This is just SO pretty. It is honestly one of my favourite make up items Ever.

It’s a great highlighter but also (and this is what I like to do) it is perfect for creating a pretty, fresh and glowy look. I apply this to the apples of my cheeks and along the top of my cheeks bones to give them a gorgeous glowy shimmer that makes your skin look amazing.

If you havn’t tried it I would 100% recommend giving it a go.

Benefit Ka-brow!

This is a fantastic brow product and its super long lasting. It’s creamy formula applies really easily and is great for creating a natural brow look in no time at all. The little angled brush makes it seamless when applying and creating shape and definition to your brow. This is often on offer in Boots so check it out if you are on the look out for a new brow product to try.

Some brushes that I have been loving are these two, as seen above. The large fluffyΒ  brush is by Real Techniques, I love using this to apply the Tanya Burr Illuminator to my cheeks and face.

The face brush at the bottom is also by Real techniques and it is what I’ve been using to apply my concealor/foundation recently and I am loving the finish it gives.

And finally, onto lip products.

Forever a fave… Tanya Burrs ‘Pink Cocoa’ creme lipstick. It is the prettiest nude shade and is so versatile, from everyday make up, evenings out and parties it is such a pretty shade.

I’ve also been loving pinky toned lip colours such as the Nyx soft matte lip cremes, especially the shade ‘Istanbul’. The perfect spring pink.

They are definatly a make up bag staple if you are a lover of liquid lipsticks!!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this insight into my current faves.
Maybe give some a go if your looking for something new to add to your make up collection!

See you soon.

Until next time,

My Tanya Burr advent calendar: Blogmas day 10

Hi guys!

Today’s another look into my Tanya Burr advent calender.

Let’s see what’s inside…

Behind the next window was another lovely eyeliner. This one is also sparkly bit is a silver glitter liner.

As I said previously I don’t have many and these glitter ones are much easier to apply. I love that I have both gold and silver glitter now, great for completing a casual eye look or for glitzing up a Christmas party make up look.

These are great for eyeliner novices as you can’t really tell if you’ve applied it 100% nearly or not because it is just glitter in a clear fluid . It looks really pretty and I can’t wait to use this one too.

Β πŸŽ„15 DAYS TO GO!! πŸŽ„

Until next time,

Tanya Burr Neutral ambience collection πŸπŸŒ΄

I was super excited to see that Tanya Burr had brought out some new additions to her beauty range, and what better way to spend my birthday money aye!?

I grabbed three of her four new products and I thought I would share them with you, let you know what they are like and such! So let’s get into it. 

These are the two eyeshadow palettes. Let’s talk about the packaging!! It’s so pretty 😍 It’s a matte finish with shiny palm leaves and pineapples printed onto it. The ‘my escape’ palette is a lovely tropical green colour and the ‘my paradise’ is in a lovely copper colour  

My escape 🌴

The four shades in this palette are: (from top left) New perspective,wild jungle, tree tops and master plan.

I love the dusky pink colour and the khaki colour is beautiful and has a lovely shimmer to it. I don’t have any colours like the khaki and it looks so pretty on. I love those two for an everyday look and then the bottom darker shades to add a smoky, night out feel to your eye look.

My paradise 🍍

The four shades in this palette are: (from top left) champagne cocktail, tranquillity, Miami sunrise and hammock (love that name!)
I love the coppery tones of this palette, this is a perfect addition to my eyeshadow collection (which mainly includes pinks) They are so pretty and again a lovely mix of matte and shimmery tones.

So pretty!

I also picked up one of the two new lipstick shades…

Sunday walk πŸ’„

This beautiful pinky toned lipstick is called ‘Sunday walk’ I love it soo much. Pink is my favourite shade and this is a lovely matte lip that looks really pretty on and can be quite subtle too, which I like! Great for everyday or a polished evening look, perfect with a smoky eye.

Having these products has made me want to start using eyeshadow more and trying out some different looks, being a bit more daring.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little look at Tanya’s new products! Let me know if you’ve tried any out and your thoughts 😊

Until next time,

OOTD: Night out casual πŸ’‹

I had drinks with my work friends last night so I thought I would do a blog post of my outfit and make up look.

We started off at a casual bar so I went for a casual night out look. We did actually end up in town (& I was very thankful for my flats!)

We’ll start with the outfit…

I went for a black and white combo with this outfit.

The jumper is a black and white mix from H & M. 

The black ankle grazer skinny jeans are from Primark.

The black choker comes from a set of three, again from Primark.

I pinned a little badge to my jumper to add a bit detail.

Red goes really well with black and the little rose is really cool. I matched my lipstick with this too and they both added a pop of colour to the look⚘🌷

My bag is from Primark too! It’s black with a suede effect flap on the front with gold detailing. 

The black faux suede shoes with gold detailing are also from Primark.
I love how well these accessories go with the outfit and with each other.

What I got for Christmas!

I love reading and watching what people got for Christmas do I thought I would make my first blog post of 2017 just that.I’m not trying to brag about what I got, I just wanted to share the things that I kindly received. Also, I havnt included everything, just a selection and what I got in my stocking (because its one of the best bits of Christmas, you know I’m right!!)

So let’s go! 

I’ll start with my stocking as these are the first things I opened…

In my stocking I got some super cute pressies, I got some cosy reindeer slippers, cute polar bear earmuffs, a hand cream that is Vanilla frosting scented (so good!) A sausage dog ruler (that will be going to work with me!) A retro puzzle, chocolate (including my favourite, chocolate orange (yup it’s already gone.) And some yummy tea. A lovely selection, Santa did good πŸ‘Œ 

I was very lucky and got some lovely beauty products this year! I had asked for a few but didn’t know which I was going to end up with so it was still a nice surprise.

From Lush I got the ‘Ballistic’ bath bomb. This smells amazing and is double sided, the yellow side is the powdery texture of a bath bomb and the pink side is waxy. I can’t wait to try it out.

I also got three items from Zoella’s original beauty collection, The hand sanitizer, the ‘Creamy madly dreamy’ body lotion and the ‘Pretty polished’ body scrub. The scent of her original collection is my favourite so I was really excited when she added new items to the range.

From Soap and Glory I got the ‘Deep cleansing milk’ This melts away makeup and is a gorgeous cleanser that smells amazing. I’m using this as part of my skincare routine to remove my make up and it’s lovely.

I was also very lucky to get a few items from Tanya Burr’s Christmas collection.

The beauty holdall is so pretty and perfect for carrying toiletries or make up when travelling or as make up storage. It’s gold with little light pink lips all over it. I also got the ‘Tanya presents’ beauty box which is a lovely light blue box with little black stars and a gold trim. Inside the box you get two nail files with the star pattern, in light green and light pink as well as a ‘Smokey eye’ trio of eyeshadows that are called ‘Luna’, ‘Winter walk’ and ‘Dusk’. You also get her ‘Bambi eyes’ false lashes, a liquid highlighter, a miniature lip gloss in the colour ‘Afternoon tea’ and a mini compact mirror that’s light blue with cute little white dots. Such good value for money (especially as I found it in the sales just before Christmas for Tim) Such a lovely selection of products to try out.

This is one of the gorgeous palettes that she released this Christmas and I love it. This is a fab all round palette with everything you need to create a gorgeous make up look. Included in the palette is a blusher called ‘First kiss’ a highlighter called ‘Champagne shimmer’ four eyeshadows ‘Vanilla sugar’, ‘Toasted teacake’, ‘Hot chocolate and cream’ and ‘Cocoa dust’. The mini matte lipstick is in the shade ‘Martha moo’. I love this palette so much and I was so pleased that Martha moo was the lip shade as this is so hard to come by now. 

I love this present, it’s Sensationails gel starter kit. It comes with two gorgeous gel nail colours, all the equipment you need including a UV lamp, and a nail varnish to gel transformer so that you can  make your nail varnish into gel varnish. This is much cheaper than having gels done at a salon, more convenient and the fact that I can use my existing varnish and turn it into gel is so awesome, all my lovely colours in my collection won’t be wasted.

Some other lovely presents I got are…

These two books are amazing! As you’ll know, if you’ve seen my blog before, I love Harry Potter so I was super excited to see that they had brought out the second book in illustrated form, the pictures are beautiful. This Fantastic beasts book has loads of information on the making of the film, amazing photographs and little extra artefacts to do with the characters (see below)

I love how the book looks like Newts case and opens up on the side like his case!

I also got a VR headset from Tim. My sister got one for her husband in November and I had a go on it, it was really fun. I didn’t realise Tim had remembered me saying how much I enjoyed it but he obviously did! 

This was a lovely surprise and so much fun. I’ve downloaded lots of different apps to use, I love the horror ones even though it’s so realistic!! 😱

Me and Tim got these super cute pillowcases from his Auntie! They are ‘Mr and Mrs’ pillowcases, the ‘Mr’ one has a moustache under the word and the ‘Mrs’ one has some red lips under the word. These are so cute and a lovely present to receive for our first christmas as a married couple.

I love Cath Kidson and I really enjoy the adult colouring books so this is a perfect present for me. The patterns in this are all lovely Cath Kidson patterns. It shows you what they should look like if you want to follow the actual design or you can colour it how you like.

I got a gorgeous photograph of my newest nephew Casey. This one can join the one of Noah that is already on the wall. How cute is the fox costume?! 😍

And finally, I got this gorgeous necklace and earring set from Tim. 
It’s really special as it matches my engagement ring and is my favourite colour (it also happens to be my birthstone!) β™‘

So pretty!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this snippet into what I got for Christmas and I hope that you got some lovely things too. 

Let’s make it a good one!

Until next time,

A Christmas party make up look: Blogmas day 21 πŸ’‹

Since I had my work Christmas party last night I thought I would do a Christmas party make up look for you guys. I loved this look with a red lip and bronze eyeshadow. 

The products that I used were:

  • The body shop bb cream in Shade no 2 mixed with Bourjois healthy mix radiance reveal foundation in the Shade light beige, 1 pump of each.
  • Collection lasting perfection Concealor in Cool medium & Bourjois radiance reveal Concealor in Ivory.
  • Clinique face primer creme
  • Revoltuion blusher ‘love’
  • Make up obsession highlighter in the shade ‘bronze’ 
  • Revolution make up eye primer 
  • Make up obsession eyeshadow in the shade ‘rich’ & Maybelline Nudes palette.
  • Diorshow mascara in black 
  • Tanya Burrs perfect brows palette
  • Rimmel lip Liner in the shade 004 ‘Indian pink’
  • Tanya Burrs lipstick in the shade ‘Big kiss’


  • Real techniques beauty blender; I used this for foundation & concealor.
  • Real techniques buffing brush; I use this brush to apply blusher.
  • Real techniques base eyeshadow brush; I used this to apply the base colour of my eyeshadow & the darker colour into the outer corner.
  • Real Technique multi-task brush; I use this brush to just wipe away any excess and clean up the look.
  • Primark fan brush for highlighing; this Brush applies highlighter flawlessly. I only recently got this after wanting one for ages and I would 100% recommend getting one of these.
  • Revolution, Limited edition angled brush; I used this brush for my eyebrows.

    I used a mixture of two face products in order to give more coverage all night without being too heavy. I love the mix of my bb cream and the healthy mix foundation, it works really well. I used a pump of each on my beauty blender to apply it to my face.

    I used the Collection concealor for my face and any blemishes or spots and the Bourjois concealor under my eyes which is why I go for a lighter shade to make under my eyes brighter.

    I bought a few of the products listed above expecially for this make up look, these were…

    I love the colours that you can get by ‘Make up obsession’ and I went for a glowy bronze look with the highlighter and eyeshadow as I thought this would work really well with the red lip. The eye primer I used (from my beauty advent calender) was also fab and my eyeshadow stayed perfect all night.

    Tanya Burrs lipsticks from her Autumn collection are AMAZING. people kept asking me all night what lipstick I was wearing and commenting on how well it had stayed on even whilst I was eating the meal. I love the slightly darker shade of red in this lipstick, it’s party perfect.

    Here’s the finished look!

    I was really please with this make up look & it went perfectly with my outfit but would be so versatile for so many party looks! 

    I hope you liked the look too πŸ’‹

    In my beauty advent calender today…

    Today I got a baked blusher! This is one of my favorites items from the advent calender so far!! I love pink blushers and this one is beautiful 😍

    Ho Ho Ho

    Blogmas day 10: Tanya Burr cosmetics πŸ’‹

    How are we 10 days in already?!? 

    I recently bought some of Tanya’s Burrs make up from her latest ranges and I thought I would show you what I got.

    First up, 

    The Midnight smoulder palette from her New autumn collection.

    The colours in this palette are so beautiful.

    From top left to bottom right: Star gazing, endless sky, midnight navy & into the night.

    Also from her Autumn collection I grabbed one of her lipsticks. I have wanted to try these for ages and I have got a couple of the colours on my Christmas list but I really wanted her red shade ready for the Christmas party season. They are lovely creme lipsticks and the colours are amazing.

    This is the red shade, ‘Big kiss’

    Here’s a swatch of the lipstick, it’s a lovely darker red  and is going to look great for my work Christmas meals.

    From her Soft Luxe collection I picked up one of her lip glosses that I have seen her use in a few of her videos and really liked the look of it. 

    This is in the shade ‘Afternoon tea’  it’s a lovely peachy pink colour.

    I also picked up a lip gloss set from her New Christmas collection. I love her Christmas collection this year, it’s got some awesome pieces in it (also on my Christmas list!! Pretty please Santa πŸŽ…)  and the packaging is gorgeous too.

    These lip glosses are so pretty, the pink on the left side is called ‘Berry Pavlova’ and the red one is called ‘Candy Cane’  Love that!

    I love the icy blues, cute light pink lips all over the packaging & glitter detailing to look like a Christmas bow. 

    Here are some swatches…

    These are limited edition so I had to grab them whilst they were still in stock as they won’t be available after Christmas.

    My final item isn’t Tanya Burr but it’s along the same lines as it’s by her friend Zoella…

    This cute make up bag is from Zoellas Tutti Fruitti range which is now being discontinued. I grabbed it for Β£2 since they’ll be gone soon and it’s such a lovely size for in your handbag. 

    Have you tried any of these products? What did you think? What would you recommend?

    (P.s I stayed at my sisters last night as we are off to Winter Wonderland today so I haven’t opened my advent calender, I will include today’s & tommorrows in Day 11 of Blogmas!)

    Ho Ho Ho

    YouTuber products πŸ–²πŸ›πŸŽ€

    Here are a few products from two of my favourite YouTubers Zoella&Tanya Burr.

    Tanya burr cosmetics ‘perfect brows’ kit.

    This powder eyeshadow kit is great. It has four colours;

    • Fairy cake: this is a lovely highlighter to apply under the filled brown.
    • Pebble: A light beige colour to fill in the brow.
    • Chesnut: A light brown colour to fill in the brow.
    • Hot Cocoa: A dark brown colour to fill in the brow.

    I use ‘Pebble’ & ‘Chesnut’ mixed together when I do my brows, this palette is great! I don’t use ‘Hot Cocoa’ as its a bit dark for me but it’s a lovely shade.

    Everyday flutter lashes.

    I haven’t used these yet but they look really pretty. These half lashes have a natural, eye opening effect.

    I went for the ‘everyday’ lashes as I haven’t worn flash lashes before so I thought these would be good for a first try, without being too much.

    I’m going to watch some of Tanya’s videos to see how to put them on best!

    I bought three different products from the Zoella beauty ‘Tutti Fruity’ range. This range is being discontinued soon so I thought I would try some out of it out before that happens, plus my sister Sarah loves this range and is always raving about how nice it is.

    Zoella scrubbing me softly smoothing body scrub.

    280g Β£1.50

    ‘Buff your way to snuggly -soft skin with this fresh, fruity scrub. Enriched with Acai and blueberry this body Polish has a light, feminine fragrance to uplift and give you an instant burst of energy. With conditioning Cocoa butter -lovely scrubbly! 

    Zoella Candy cream softening body lotion.

    160ml Β£1

    ‘Treat yourself to this delicious fresh, fruity cream for a soft and silky body. Packed with bursting beads and extracts of Acai and blueberry to pamper and protect because your skin needs a bit of love too! 

    Zoella ‘Kissy Missy’ lip balm.


    This has a lovely pink tinge to it and makes your lips feel really smooth, not tacky. The colour is lovely and good for a quick pop of colour.

    & from the New Zoella lifestyle range…

    The ‘Homemade treats’ reed diffuser.

    Softly whipped butter xterm and gooey salted caramel drizzled over home-baked cupcakes. Bring some indulgence to youe home with this delicious scent; (almost) good enough to eat!

    It smells SO good!! And the description of buttery creamy, cupcake goodness is on point. It takes a few days to diffuse fully but once it does its so yummy.

    I really hope Zoella brings this scent out as a candle soon, they are perfecting it atm so fingers crossed it will be soon πŸ‘Œ

    This would make an amazing candle πŸ•―
