Rimmel ScandalEyes Liner|Review

Rimmel ScandalEyes Eyeliner£5.49

After my beloved Supercat Liner ran out I decided it was time to try something new, I love Rimmel as a brand so thought I would try out their ScandalEyes Liner. It has a super fine pen nib which is great for precision liner and you can easily thicken the line up if you so wish. It’s full of pigmentation and is a true black.

The only downside to this product is that it does tend to smudge and transfer quite easily. I don’t have oily eyelids so I think its something to do with the formula, however if you are a fan of fixing sprays – I can’t really be bothered with any of them – then this could sort that problem out.

Have you tried this product?

Vidal Sasson Dark Red Violet

Vidal Sasson Dark Red Violet£7.99

So if you don’t follow me on social media then you might not know that I changed my hair – yes again! I was getting rather bored of the ombre look and wanted a little bit more warmth to my hair. I nearly always colour my hair at home because its easier and a hell of a lot cheaper.

I recently worked for Vidal Sassoon on a graduate catwalk show and loved some of the colours they were using on the models, I had no idea they had their own colour range at Superdrug but was so happy to pick up a colour that I had seen go down the runway.

I went for Dark Red Violet, it’s a gorgeous warm toned red with hints of purple which adds depth to your hair. Not only do I love the colour but it is the most user friendly kit i’ve ever used, coming with a brush applicator and mixing bowl to make sure the colour is thoroughly mixed and applied correctly.

Yet again a television show is influencing my clothing choices. This time it’s Once Upon a Time. I love the costumes especially Belle’s and Snow Whites and the riding boots and tight leggings are definitely inspired by the show. Nearly everything apart from the wonderful hat is old but I love the fact that I can still wear clothes from years ago with current fashions. I love the detail on the leggings giving them a biker feel to them which has a nice contrast to the floaty qualities of the blouse.

Easter Sunday Funday

P1220027

Easter Sunday was a slightly quieter affair than normal, we are having building works going on so the usual huge family lunch was limited to just a close few.

I love bunnies and couldn’t resist these rather kitsch bunny cups from Tesco.

I was left in charge of my new favourite domain the kitchen and with a little help from my mum managed to cook up a little feast.

Roast chicken with all the trimmings followed by mascarpone and passionfruit clouds.

Feeling a little bit over indulged we finished off the day with a walk, before tucking into our easter eggs.

Hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend.

Becoming Freelance

kitkat macathley

At the beginning of January I quit my full time job of working in a bar and became a freelance make-up artist. I wish I could tell you all how exciting and busy I am but right now I writing this with the third season of Once Upon A time on and my e-mails refreshing every ten minutes. It’s not as glamorous as I thought it would be.

On the flip side every job I do is amazing and I am making a few contacts for further work and I have learnt a lot about being freelance so I thought I would share with you my top 5 tips of what I have learnt so far!

*You will spend most of your time in your office looking at a computer screen than doing the actual job.

*You will sleep with your phone like a teddy bear in case a last minute job comes up.

*Business cards are super important – I got mine done by Moo Cards

*Experience is important, do every job that comes your way even if it’s unpaid

*Be nice to everyone you never know where that person will be in the five years.

So what have I been up to in my first three months, well I have done just about everything a little bit of fashion, some theatre and a few short films. I also have started doing weddings which is one of my favourite things to do, helping someone get ready for their big day is such a massive honour.

90’s Girl|OOTD

Top – H&M (similar)|Jeans – New Look|Shoes – Kurt Geiger.

The 90’s called they want there outfit back.

I had a staff party a few days ago and I clearly decided to take a trip back in time to my childhood and the 90’s with my outfit. I love pairing these boyfriend jeans with the barely there style shoe for instant chic also these beauties from Kurt Geiger are so super comfy. I recently picked up this crop top from H&M,the shape is a little different to what I normal wear but it clings in all the right places and cuts off perfectly at the waist.

It’s a super simple outfit but still makes somewhat of a statement.

Garnier Express 2 in 1 Eye Make-Up Remover|Rimmel Radiance BB Cream|VO5 Give Me Texture Sea Salt Spray|Olay Refreshing Toner.

I fell into Superdrug the other day and came out with a few new purchases and a few old favourites.

I love both the Olay Refreshing Toner and Garnier Express 2in1 Eye Make-Up Remover and use them both morning and night. Inexpensive but super effective.

I picked up the Rimmel Radiance BB Cream because I wanted a lightweight base for early mornings which won’t make my face feel clogged. I love the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation so thought I would give this a try. I’ve only used it once so far and I have mixed feelings, but i’ll let you know how I feel about it soon.

I also bought the VO5 Give Me Texture Sea Salt Spray, I love sea salt sprays in the summer when I tend to just let me hair do it’s own thing without any heat tools helping. It smells great like all VO5 products and it doesn’t make your hair sticky but again i’ll do a full review soon.

Have you bought anything recently?
