As we’ve had a a lot of sun recently I thought I’d share some of my favourite things I’ve been using or doing whilst the sun has been out. From my beauty favourites to sunglasses and accessories I can’t stop wearing!
Keeping with the theme of beauty from last weeks post I thought I’d update you with some of the make-up I’ve recently purchased and what i’ve been loving in this heat.
I haven’t done a skin/beauty post in a while and I thought I’d update you with what I’ve been using. As I think seasons do determine your skin care and the types of products you use.
I’ve been getting more and more adventurous with my make up as it goes. Not just sticking with my bold eye liner and a nude lip. I thought I’d share with you some of the recent additions to my make up collection.
*Sleek Makeup Highlighter Palette Solstice –I’ve been wanting this pallete for so so long every-time I went to go purchase it, it seemed to be out of stock. When I got it in the post I literally screamed. I’ve needed a new highlighter and this was just in time. As you can see in the pictures above it has some beautiful shades which I cannot wait to try.
*Sleek Makeup I-Divine Eye Palette A New Day –As you know, I love orange and brown shades for my eyes. So this pallete must be made for me I love my smoky pallete from Sleek but I think this will be my new favourite for an everyday subtle eye look.
*Sleek Blush Flamingo – I’m not one to wear blusher if I’m honest but this blusher is perfect for spring/summer when you don’t want to much bronzer but that hint of pink so I cannot wait to add this to my make up routine.
*Sleek Makeup Matte Me Lipgloss Old Hollywood – I always feel like I can’t wear a red lip unless I’m going all out with a whole outfit as well as a bold make up look. However, this red has got me wanting to wear red on my lips 25/8. I cannot wait to to wear this on my lips.
*Sleek Makeup Matte Me Lipgloss Velvet Slipper – This has to be my favourite shade it’s the perfect pink/nude shade. As I mentioned a nude is a staple in my everyday makeup routine and you can’t really go wrong.
*Sleek Makeup Matte Me Lipgloss Vino Tinto – Another shade I think which is abit adventurous is this one. I think an evening outfit and a smoky eye this would go perfect. I think dark lips are more of an everyday autumn make up look but I definitely think it can work in an evening and everyday if you want that bad girl club vibe.
*Sleek Makeup Lifeproof Foundation LP05 – This foundation might just replace my current one. It’s such a good consistency and has medium to full coverage and I mean with that you are winning. It’s perfect for a time you want your make up to last for a long period of time.
*Sleek Makeup Vitality Foundation VF03/VFo4/VF06 – An alternative to the full coverage foundation is this one. It has such a thin feel once applied. It’s perfect for an everyday foundation because your skin can breathe as well as look flawless.
*Sleek Makeup Crème to Powder Foundation C2P02/C2P05 – I was abit sceptical about this at first but the concept is quite clever if you love applying powder after you’ve done your foundation this is for you ladies. It applies really easily and you even have a mirror within the packaging (can we just appreciate how Sleek pretty much put mirrors in most of their packaging – blessed).

L’Oreal Infallible Fixing Mist – Boots. This fixing mist is one of my all time favourites it works so well with the foundation. I love how it dries super quickly and doesn’t feel sticky at all. It allows your make up to last all day and you can’t really complain because it’ll look as fab as it did when you first applied it.
She’s a natural day and night face pallete – Soap & Glory.I totally forgot I had this, but recently I’ve got back into using it. It’s so versatile to pop in your bag I mean it’g all you need in one. I love the highlighter in this it’s SO pigmented. As well as the mirror I mean it’s the perfect size for doing your make-up on the go.
Laura Geller Illuminator – Beauty BayI got this for my birthday and it’s one of my favourite highlighters to use. I love how pink/rose gold looks with my skin tone. It’s so sparkly and super pigmented again I mean you just can’t go wrong so I’d definitely recommend this.
Lingerie Liquid Lip (Embellishment ) – NYX. You all know how much I love NYX and their lipsticks their lingerie range has to be my favourite. I’m yet to try the suede’s but I’m sure I’ll love them. Embellishment is a soft purple colour and I love it.
Lingerie Liquid Lip (Cashmere Silk) – NYX. Another one of my favourites is one I purchased more recently it’s this nude I LOVE it honestly is has to be my top buy this month. I know I’ll be wearing this as my everyday nude.
Sexy Mother Pucker XL Extreme Plump – Soap & Glory. I love wearing this over my matte lipsticks it gives such a better fell rather than the dry lips especially at this time of year its just what you need.
i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette in Au Naturel – Sleek. Again another one of my favourites is this pallete from Sleek it just has all the right shades to transition from evening to a morning look. It’s just so easy to have in your make up bag for any look for anytime of the day.
Supercat Black Eyeliner Pen – Soap & Glory. I love my eyeliner as you all know and this is super black which I struggle to find with some eyeliners. You can get the perfect flick in literally minutes. If you don’t have this eyeliner get your hands on it, it’s fab.
Highlighter in Crescent Moon – Topshop. Finally last but not least probably my favourite is this Topshop highlighter I cannot get enough of it its the prettiest colour and it’s actually unbelievable how good it is!! I mean one swatch and you’ll understand it’s too beautiful.

I’ve purposely waited until November to do this post because I don’t want to be too early. It’s that time of year where shops start to be getting out their gifting tables and filling catalogues with gift guides.
One of the best brands that do Christmas gift sets as you may have already probably noticed are Soap and Glory!
Their range this year is suitable for everyone and it ranges from bath products to make up as well as skin care.
I was lucky enough to receive the Soap and Glory Try your luxe gift set and I honestly would love this as a gift. It has the famous righteous butter as well as the gloss sticks which if you know I’M OBSESSED WITH!
I also am loving these products from their range –
Soap & Glory Winter Wonder Glam Gift set – With all your essentials from the Soap & Glory make up line you can’t go wrong with this gift set. You have such a wide selection of products so it’s a super versatile gift set – perfect for any make-up lover. I love the eyeshadows they’re so pigmented and lovely A/W colours.
Soap & Glory Glow Maintenance – If your obsessed with skin care or know somebody who is this gift set is made for them. Personally I love that it comes with a bag so it can be used for make up or your favourite products. The Soap & Glory face masks are so great and so hydrating for your skin.

Happy Halloween, as it’s Halloween I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon and do a post Halloween-esque! I did a make-up look which was quite vampy so I thought I’d share how I did it and what I used. I love dark and smoky make-up so what other opportunity to share this make-up look.
L’Oreal Infallible Foundation – Boots. I got a foundation slightly lighter than my original shade to add that pale look. It wasn’t as light as I wanted but even a little lighter makes a difference. This foundation is my holy-grail drugstore foundation it has a medium coverage so you can’t go wrong.
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer – Superdrug. I used my Collection concealer as you all know its my favourite to hide them eye bags. I added it just under my eyes again in a lighter shade than my usual just to make my face pale instead of it being my natural shade.
Laura Geller Illuminator – Beauty Bay. I love this highlighter. It’s so pretty and has the brightest glow so I thought this would be the best way to add a lighter colour to the look. As well as a slightly pink glow rather than silver.
Ultra Matte Lip – Colourpop. I’m so glad it’s A/W so I can get the most wear out of this again. It was going dusty waiting for me to pick it up again. I love a dark lip and this has to be my favourite shade. A deep red. I mean you just can’t go wrong with bold eyes and a dark lip.
Sexy Mother Pucker – Soap and glory. Instead of it just having a matte finish, I thought to change it up a little so I added this lip gloss on top. It added such a brighter more loud look to my lips. To allow it to be the centre of the look.
L’Oreal Paris Super Liner – Superdrug. I mean you can’t go wrong with a winged eye look for Halloween. It’s the perfect opportunity to go all out and have the boldest eye make up. So why not take advantage of it. I love this eyeliner its perfect to get the sharpest wing as well as the darkest.
Lace Cat Ears – Primark. Finally, a non-make up item to finish the whole look were these lace ears that I grabbed from Primark aren’t they the cutest you’ve seen!!? Again you can adapt this look by adding lashes or even eyeshadow and even glitter if you want to go that extra mile!
What look are you going for this Halloween? Comment below.
