beauty, FCP, Makeup

Welcome back to my blog! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I had the best time spent with my family; it always go too fast! Today I thought I would share with you what makeup I received for Christmas this year, as well as a few bits that I picked up in the sales! As always I am very grateful for each and every one of the gifts that I am going to share with you. I hope that you enjoy this blog post!

1. The first piece of makeup I received was the Jeffree Star ‘Androgyny’ palette. It is a warm toned large pan palette, with a few ‘brave’ shades, such as a blue & green… I can’t wait to play around with some more adventurous looks!

 

2. The next two pieces I received were also from Jeffree Star Cosmetics; two Velour Liquid Lips. One repurchase of the shade ‘Mannequin’; my all time favourite nude! I also received a new one in the shade ‘I’m Nude’, which is a slightly lighter version of ‘Mannequin’. Already I have been loving pairing these to together! FullSizeRender (82)

3.  Thirdly, I got the Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow; A product I have been wanting to try for so long because it had been raved about so much! It is so pretty!

4. Another product I received that I have wanting to try for a while is the Gerard Cosmetics Slay All Day setting in spray in the flavour ‘peach’. A yummy smelling product that I can’t wait to put to the test!

5. Another repurchased item is the Stila One Step Correct Skin Tone Correcting & Brightening Serum; I love this primer and I am excited to use it again!

6. Also, I received the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade in the shade ‘Ash Brown’; I staple in my makeup bag… I’m on my third one!

7. The makeup tool I was super excited to receive was my original hot pink Beauty Blender and Beauty Blender Cleanser. I already am in love/obsessed with it already! I wont be going back to normal sponges any time soon!

8. From America my brother and sister-in-law got me two items from Sephora; The Winter Magic palette, and the Sugarcoated lipgloss collection. Both surprise presents that I was thrilled to receive!

9. In the sales I also purchased a few makeup gift sets; Firstly I got the Read my Lips colour riche lip kit from Loreal… it comes with a nude shade lip liner and lipstick that I look forward to using!

 

10. From the sale at boots I also got The Colour Edit gift set from French Connection. It contains two matte liquid lipsticks, as well as two lipglosses and 5 gorgeous nail polishes!

 

11. The final makeup gift set I got is the Millie Mackintosh Couture Beauty Ultimate Beauty Collection. It comes with lots of products; A bronzer, lip liner, eye pencil, lip gloss, eyeshadow palette, face illuminator and an eyebrow kit! I have heard a few reviews about the collection, and as a MIC fan I can’t wait to try all the products!

TOP 5 PARTY PICKS.

Fashion, FCP

Welcome back to my blog! For today’s post I thought I would share with you my ‘top 5 party picks’ for this Christmas/ New year party season! I have trolled the online shops( definitely not complaining!) for my favourite outfit choices, from dresses to jumpsuits, sequins to velvet! So, if you want to find out what I picked, and where from, then please keep on reading!

  1. My first choice is this silver chainmail halter neck shift dress from Topshop, which retails at £69. I am loving the chainmail trend which is everywhere at the minute! I think this dress would be a real stand out piece, perfect for NYE! I would personally style it with strappy heels, and hoop earrings, it would be such a look!

2. For my next option I chose a white tassel halter neck body con dress from PLT. This dress is only £35, which I think is an affordable option for this part season! I am obsessed with tassels recently, and although this dress comes in several different colours, I think the colour white adds a Christmassy element… you’ll look like an angel/ snow flake! I would pair this piece with some simple Perspex strappy heels; I would want all the attention to be on the tassels!

3. For my third choice I picked a jumpsuit… as soon as I saw this piece on the MissGuided website I fell in love! And what could be better? It was half price in the sale! This cobalt blue twist bandeau jumpsuit looks simply amazing on the model, and would be perfect for a work Christmas party! If you want something less stand out it also comes in black, but I personally love the colour of the blue option! I would accessorize with diamante earrings and heels! Love!

4. For my 4th choice I went for a wine coloured wrap sequin dress, again from MissGuided. I feel that this piece would be perfect for an extra kinda look on a Christmas night out! The sequins scream holiday glam, whilst the plunge neck line makes it a really sexy number! This dress retails for £25, which I think makes it a perfect option for this party season! I would wear this piece with silver accessories as I think it would compliment the deep red colour perfectly.

5. For my final choice I went with this show stopper piece… you can never have too many sequins, right? This high neck long sleeved body con dress from Motel ( on ASOS) is £60 which I think is amazing considering the level of detail and craftsmanship of this piece! It is a mix of black and midnight blue iridescent sequins, which looks stunning on the model & would look amazing when the sequins hit the lights! The high neck adds a conservative element, which contrasts with the short length & backless element… making it a winning dress in my opinion! I think this piece with some stilettos would be killer! Perfect for a NYE night out!
