FOTD: My everday look

Hi guys! Hope you are all well, as you may have guessed from the title I am doing a FOTD for my everyday makeup look.

First off I used boi-ing concealer in shade no.1 to hide any spots or blemishes. Stila SPF 30 oil free tinted moisturiser in shade light 03 was applied next using my Real Techniques buffing brush. Garnier under eye concealer to hide dark circles then to finish off the base I set it with Rimmel Stay Matt powder in translucent. I used my favourite bronzer, 2 True All Over Natural Bronzing Powder to contour my face then topped my checks of with Natural Collection blush in Pink Cloud. Eyebrows were simple just went over them with a clear mascara from MUA to keep them in place all day!

For my eyes I used Lemon-aid from benefit to even out my eyelid then applied Bare Minerals prime time eyeshadow primer so that my shadow would stay in place all day! The actual eyeshadow is all from the Sleek Au Natural palette. I used the colour cappuccino all over the lid (3rd from left on the top row), I ran just a tiny bit of conker through the crease (1st from left on bottom row). Then just to blend them out I used honeycomb (3rd from right on top row). To highlight my brow bone and inner corner i used the matt white called nougat which i LOVE! I curled my lashes then topped them off with a bit of Flawless Definition by Bare Minerals (favourite mascara of the moment! Just looks so natural).

Lips were kept simple by using Stila's lip stick in the colour Fiona sheered out so its not to bright.

What do you wear on an everyday basis? Any good products going around that I could use every day?

Marie Claire: June Mag Freebie!

Hey guys! Hope that you are well. Today It's going to be a quick post about the freebie in the June mag from Marie Claire.

I don't really pick up Marie Claire mag (I'm more of a company girl myself;)) but that didn't stop me picking p this one as you get a free Body Shop cheek and lip stain! I got the colour Rose Pink and haven't used it on my cheeks yet but I love it on my lips!

It looks really scary in the tube and super bright but it goes on really nice and a lovely light pink that anyone could wear. I use it everyday when I don't want to use a lipstick. It is great for school as lasts really long and looks natural.

Go and pick up this as it is great for the £3.70 and you definitely get your monies worth! I am also going to pick up I think the instyle magazine purely for the nails inc. polish. Hope you have a great rest of the week!

I was in TKmaxx the other day and looked what I found sitting all lonely in a bag over in the corner!

Three full size Stila products! I believe that they are all discontinued but I was looking around on the Internet and you will be able to find them in some places if you really wanted them

In this little you set I got the Stila SPF 30 oil free sheer colour tinted moisturiser in light 03, a lipstick in Fiona and a lip gloss in interesting.

I got all of this for £9.99! Bargain I thought;)

This is the oil free SPF 30 tinted moisturiser that i have been loving. I've been lacking an SPF lately so this does the trick, been using it ever day and loving it! I like  to apply it with a Real Techniques buffing brush but you could easily use your fingers!

This is the thing that I was least excited for in the pack but it turns out to be my favourite! This gorgeous more orange toned coral is beautiful! It looks quite intimidating but i have been wearing it almost everyday sheered out and it is AMAZING! My favourite lipstick I own by a mile.

I'm not as excited about this. It is gorgeous colour and I don't own anything like it but its just not me. I will use it for parties and that as it is gorgeous but I'm not in love with it. I'm not saying it's a bad product its just that i would have preferred a more neutral colour. It looks absolutely stunning over the Fiona lipstick.

When ever you are near a TKmaxx always have a little nosey sometime you don't find anything but sometime you find heaps and you want do buy the whole shop! I've found a Two Faced duo in  there once for £1.50, BARGAIN!!

Anyway I hope you liked this post and your not bored let me know some of the bargains that you have found at TKmaxx or just bargains in general:)

The blush that i have been reaching for nearly everyday recently is a blush from mua in shade 4!

I LOVE this colour! It's like a peachy, deep corally kinda colour (sorry not the best at describing things but you hopefully get the drift).

The blush itself is VERY pigmented, oneof the most pigmented blushes i have ever seen!!! The colour is really true to what it looks like in the pan which is always good:)

It goes on like a dream! You need a really light hand as it is very pigmented! It is a very buildable colour but I like to wear it more naturally but you can build it up to get a stronger colour. It lasts really long so you don't have to reaply it during the day which is always nice!

Overall I really this blush and will be looking at more of the blushes from mua sometime soon! You can only pick them up in superdrug but at a bargain price of £1 (always looking for a bargain I am;)!!! I really like it so I WILL be looking at the other colours!

If anyone has any good cheap blush recomendations then please let me know!:)

New favourite shampoo and conditioner???

Hi guys!

Today I'm going to talk to you anout my new favourite shampoo and conditioner!!!

left - conditioner     right - shampoo
The shampoo and conditioner that I am going to be talking about today is the L'Oreal Elvive Nurti-Gloss Light. I use it in the mid to long, fine hair, prone to greasiness.

I have about medium lenght, really thick which is prone to greasiness. So basically my hair is the exact same as it says on the packaging apart from the thickness but I feel that it dosn't make that big of a difference.

Before i started to use theese products I just used what ever was on offer in tesco or boots but I can tell you that that won't be happening anymore I LOVE this shampoo and conditioner. It makes my hair really shiny without looking greasy and my hair feels so soft after using it! With theese products i was my hair every second - third day where as before i would have to wash it everyday as it would just get reeeaaallly greasy:(

I have seen them displayed in my local tesco and boots but you could probably get them in lots of other places to! It's around £3.50 - £4 a bottle for 400ml but it's currently on offer in boots for half price.

Overall I really like this shampoo and conditioner combo and when the bottles that i currently have i will definatly be repurchasing it.
