Beauty blogger empties

I’ve never done one of these empties posts before but I always really enjoy reading them, so I thought I’d give it a shot and see how it goes down.

I mentioned the Revolution Ultra Base Corrector Palette in my Drugstore Make-up Haul, and a couple of months on and I’ve used up all of the green and the peachy colour. I don’t think I’ve gone a day without using the green, it’s just brilliant on my blotchy red cheeks, and the peach is great for my every-growing, big black bags. I also use the highlighter and the concealer in there, but haven’t yet run out of those. I’m definitely going to be getting myself another one of these very soon because I just can’t live without that green corrector anymore.

I’m also now completely out of my Armani Si perfume – which is bloody amazing btw. I can’t even begin to explain how gorgeous the smell is, but I love it and I think I’ll be getting some more very soon.

I’m guessing more or less everyone has heard of the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer by now – it’s pretty popular. I have used the whole lot up, but honestly I don’t think I’ll be getting another one of these. Although I’ve got the lightest shade, it just isn’t light enough for my ghost-like skin, and obviously concealer needs to be pretty light. So, I think I’m going to carry on with the concealer from the Revolution palette as that’s just that bit lighter.

Lastly, the Nivea Express Hydration Primer is amazing. I tend to wear this if I’m having a no make-up day because it really does it’s job and hydrates your skin but within a minute of putting it on it just disappears and your face is completely mattified.  I hate that greasy feeling when you’ve got moisturiser on and it doesn’t look great either, but you can’t even tell I have this on. If you have combination skin like me, then this is great because it works on your dry bits and doesn’t add any oil. I’ll always go back to this moisturiser, definitely my favourite.

This has actually been a really short post for me – you can probably tell I love a long waffly post but this is actually quite short! Let me know if you like these empties posts, they seem to be pretty popular, and I know I like them. Also, leave a comment if you’ve tried any of these and what you thought of them! Thank you for reading and stay tuned for a DIY Pinterest kind of post tomorrow – it’s a good’un!

Spring pink make-up look

Spring pink make-up look

 

Hey, I hope you’re having the laziest comfiest Sunday ever! With Tuesday being the first official day of Spring, and after all the lovely sunny weather we’ve had this week in England, I was feeling really girly and Spring-like. So, I thought I’d have a little play with some make-up yesterday morning and did a really pink Spring make-up look! I’m not a very girly-girl at all, I usually stick to nudes and dark colours so this was a bit out of my comfort zone, but I actually really liked it!

I just used all of my usual base products; primer, foundation, concealer and then did my eyebrows. Then I used my Collection #BlushAndGlow because their blushes are a really nice rosey pink colour, and I used the highlighter that comes in the set too. I went to town with the highlighting a bit, because I was really feeling the shimmery-pink look to be honest.

Adding to the rosey vibe, I used the MUA Burning Embers eyeshadow palette – which has the most amazing really bright pink. I then used a little bit of the white/highlighter shade for the corner of my eye. I then just curled my eyelashes and used my usual mascara, the Max Factor Voluptuous False Lash Effect mascara. Then finally, I used a MAC lipstick in the shade Please Me on my lips!

Then after I’d done it all and I looked all bright and pink, the sun disappeared and it started raining and I just wanted to put on some nude eyeshadow and dark lipstick… but I stuck it out, and to be fair, quite liked it. It’s definitely a look for a sunny day though.

Let me know what you think of the look or if you try it out. I’ll definitely be trying the looks gain as it gets brighter and warmer! Thanks for reading and make sure you come back tomorrow for my first empties post!

P.S. I’ve been trying to make my posts shorter and less waffly as I feel like people might be put off by a great big ass Harry Potter novel style post. What do you guys prefer? Long waffly or short and sweet? Let me know in the comments
