The Current Face

Hi everyone, I thought I would do a quick post showing you the makeup I use on a daily basis. I have a pretty early start for work (6am!!!!) so I have condensed the products I use down to the essentials and have got applying a full face of makeup quickly down to a fine art. It usually takes about 5-6 minutes. 
For Primer I use the Clinique City Block Sheer, it's a sunscreen and primer in one, I'm all for these dual purpose products. It is oil free which I love and it does make my foundation last a lot longer.
I started my working life with foundation but quickly realised it took too much time so swiftly moved onto my favourite product, the BB cream. This is the oil free one from Garnier and it is superb. A lightweight formula that gives enough coverage, doesn't dry out my skin and gives a healthy glow. My current tube is about to run out so I am making a bee line for Superdrug to stock up!
You'll notice that I haven't included a powder and that's because I don't need one, by using an oil free primer and BB cream my face has a nice glow without looking oily. It's fantastic as it's one less thing I need to do in the morning!
Bronzer is still the same, Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel, it's a beautiful cream bronzer that I apply with my Real Techniques stippling brush. I only need a small amount to give me a sun kissed glow. I use this product all year round and although it comes with a hefty price tag I am so glad I splurged because it's the only bronzing product I use.
My blusher changes quite frequently but currently its Cedar Rose from Lancome. It's just a nice natural colour for every day wear. 
For my eye look I always mix a few colours together from my Too Faced Naked Eye palette. All these colours compliment each other so I don't have a set look I go for. 
Mascara is the Covergirl lash blast fusion, I got sent this in a swap from the USA so unfortunately I'm unable to repurchase this. However, it is an amazing mascara and I am really enjoying using it.
For my brows I am still using my Clinique superfine liner in soft brown. This is my 3rd one and it's just amazing! That's all there is to say.
Finally for lips I always prep them with a blistex lip balm. This is super duper moisturising and I wouldn't be without it now (In my opinion its better than carmex or vaseline) To top it off I use Creme Cup lipstick from MAC. Just a beautiful mid toned pink that compliments everything.

I hope you've enjoyed this post, I may try to do one of these every few months.
What are your staple makeup products???

Where Have I Been?!?!?!?

Hi Everyone,

I am well aware that I have been absent for well over 6 months which I do apologise for but September last year was a pretty crazy month for me and from then on I haven't had time to think let alone give my blog and YouTube channel the attention they deserve.
Let me start of by saying I am not planning to return to YouTube for the foreseeable future, however, I am going to try my hardest to post here as much as I can. 
With all that being said I thought I would just do a picture post showing you what's been going on since September. 

We got a new collie puppy called Robbie he's now a big boy (see below)

I performed in a dance show in our main theatre, (I'm the one doing the walkover)

I joined a local youth group and made some amazing new friends

I went to Alton Towers for a day trip and conquered my fears of Roller Coasters (I still look pretty terrified in this photo, I'm on the left)

I bought inspirational quotes for my bedroom so every morning I wake up and am motivated for the day ahead.


1. I passed my driving test (first time) 2. Got a Job with an amazing company and am working with some incredibly lovely people. 3. Finished my 1st year of my Uni degree with the Open University .4. I'm turning 18 in a few weeks so have got an amazing birthday planned that I'll remember for the rest of my lift. 5. I completed my Silver Duke of Edinburgh award. 6. I grew another inch (Now 5" 7) 

I have been incredibly blessed the past six months and despite ups and downs, it has been full of excitement, fun and a lot of hard work!!!

I can't finish this post without saying a massive thank-you to everyone who has been returning to my blog and YouTube channel asking where I am, you're the reason I have made the effort to come back and let you all know what's been going on.

Sorry for this ridiculously long post, I hope you've enjoyed it!
