Autumn Makeup Staples x

Hey everybody! After gulping down the worlds biggest truffle ice cream sundae and walking up & down the coast of Villa Joyosa until my legs felt like jelly, I am now sitting on my sofa with my legs up and a mug of hot chocolate in my lap, writing this weeks blogpost! In the past month of October, I have watched nothing.but.tutorials. And it seems like most autumn makeup tutorials consist of either a copper/goldy eyeshadow with a touch of dark red in the crease for the eyes, a well contoured face and the big show stopper...a burgundy lip. Altogether, I like my autumn makeup to be fairly simple, but then comes the lipstick:) Personally, I think that there is no way to actually pull off a bold lip, you just have to feel confident wearing it, and unless its Halloween, that will always be the case. So due to this, I have gone and bought a burgundy lipstick to see if I am one of the fortunate few that can wear a dark lip without looking like a vampire. Let the battle begin. 



Some of my favourite products of the bunch:

Collecting Eyes Uncovered Nude Bronze Palette: Seeing as I'm certainly no makeup artist, when it comes to eye shadow I like to keep things simple. That's why this Collection palette is so loved, as it has mega-pigmented shades which are gorgeous with any look, and they're quite natural looking too. (That also explains why it's so dirty. Whoops).

Kiko Contouring Pencils & Face Brush: These little beauties have made my life soso much easier! The highlighter is so beautiful, I feel a bit like a princess whenever I wear this, I'm not gonna lie. *pictures self in an Elsa costume*. I find that the face brush is the handiest thing ever when it comes to travelling as it's double-ended. I use it mainly for bronzing and contouring but it's completely up to you in what way you use it, but altogether I would give these a 9/10!

Rimmel Lipstick in 128 Starry-eyed: It turns out, I'm kind of in love with this. It smells like berries, the colour is so gorgeous and I think it's formulation is great as it's not too creamy or too drying on the lips either! Also, I've found that this lasts all day so unless you wipe it off, that bold lip isn't going to budge any time soon. A handy tip when it comes to lipstick is that, if you can, try to find a matching lip pencil to your lipstick colour, as applying this beforehand will make your lipstick last for a lot longer!

Touching the clouds! x

Hellooo everybody! How's your weekend been? There have been lots of fiestas recently, so my school has had last Friday and today off! Woop woop! Therefore, I went shopping for some bits and bobs that I could hopefully test out in my Autumn Makeup Look that I was going to post today, but since I've only had a few days to test out the products that I bought, I thought I would leave it till next week so I could give you guys an honest opinion/review on each one! So instead, I thought I would share the once-in-a-lifetime oppertunity which I was so lucky to experience a few weeks ago, which is parasailing. 

 
(My sisters on the left, I'm on the right looking like a right wally)

 Now, I'm no daredevil. I love to be adventurous and I love heights but I never would of imagined being in a parachute with my sister, sailing 200m above the ocean on a Saturday morning. Thinking back on it now, it seems like the craziest thing ever! But yes, I got strappped into a harness and let myself be gradually rigged out, little by little, into the air. At the time, I literally thought I would fall into the deep, endless blue blur underneath me and never come out again. But I didn't! For the next fifteen minutes, I spent my time leaning back and enjoying the views as the sun twinkled on the waves beneath me. It was such an amazing experience and I know I'm never going to forget it. Thanks to my sister, I did something that most people don't get the chance to do until their 20+ years old and I'm so grateful for that, so muchas gracias hermana<3

No matter how young or old you are, you can literally do anything. I know a number of you have probably already heard all of this on a number of occasions, but don't be scared, take the risk and jump, and at the end of the day you'll feel amazing for it. I took a risk, and looking back, it's one of the main things that I'm going to remember about Summer 2015!

Finally, I want to finish by saying thank youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!<3 1k views? How did that happen?! I'm soso grateful to each and every one of you guys out there that read my blog. I guess I never really thought it would get this far:)

I love youuuu

Benefits Sugarlicious Kit Tutorial! x

Hey guys! How are you all? How's your week been? Let me know in the comments below<3 It seems to me like this week has gone by really fast and can I just say that as I'm writing this, I'm listening to Ed Sheeran's album and Im.loving.it. And as always, Ed has got me into a really good mood so I figure that now would be the best time to blog!

Recently, I've been so lucky as to receive the well-known Benefit Sugarlicious Makeup Kit! This is a deliciously nude lip & cheek kit and I cannot describe anything better than this at the moment. 

1.It has THE cutest packaging (but let's be honest here whenever is Benefits packaging not cute:)

2. It has a big square miror! *jumps up and down like a pogo stick* When is this ever not vital in your makeup bag or handbag?

3. Being the age I am, I like my makeup to look as natural and nude-like as possible, so this kit is perfect for that. From the blushes and highlight to the lip tint and lipgloss, everything in this has a flush of colour so you have that forever longed for dewy, pretty-in-pink-type look without looking like you've thrown half of your highlighter on your face!

I've been experimenting and playing for the last few days and I've found a look that can be worn for both school/college/work and would look gorgeous with a flowy white dress for when you go out<3 Please ignore my horrid nails but the packaging looks like so:





Then inside:

 

Can we take a moment to appreciate the polka dots<3...

After doing my face, eyebrows and eyes, I dived head first into this cute little box of pinkness, and played around a bit until I was happy<3:


To get this, I simply applied a touch of Benetint to the midle of my lips before blending out, swirled my brush into the mini Sugarbomb Blush and sweeped it across my cheeks, dabbed three dots of the High Beam highlighter across my cheekbones and blended that in, all before adding a thin layer of Sugarbomb lipgloss! I tend not to apply that much blusher on my cheeks purely because I don't really like it on my skintone, but I love love love the High Beam and I feel like Benetint and the Sugarbomb lipgloss are also a really nice combination for light,subtle lip<3

Again, I want to say that I was not sponsored, payed in any way, shape or form and I was given this kit as a present (thanks Pami & Jojo) so all opinions are my own. 

I hope you enjoyed this weeks post and feel free to subscribe or leave a comment below:)

I love youuuu<3
