Tropical Print - OOTD

Here is an outfit which I have been loving. I have been loving the patterned trousers especially for matching basics with. They are a great way to add colour into your outfit as well as some pattern. I have been loving this trend. Also most of this outfit is from New Look and was at reasonable prices.

Branching out with my brushes


So I don't know if you have noticed but I love the brand Real Techniques for my makeup brushes and that's what the majority of my brushes are. But I have purchased a new brand and I have fallen in love with them. 

The style is Kabuki  and I found out about these brushes from the blogger and YouTuber , Veletghost (LINK). So I have been looking  at them for a while on EBay ( as that's where you can purchase them from) (LINK) and when you purchase them , you receive 10 brushes- 5 face and 5 eye ( and I would say concealer). 

First expression 

The quality of the brushes are amazing for the cheap price. I like to have thick brushes and I was worried that these weren't going to be my liking , however, I was proven wrong. The softness of the brushes were good which means that applying makeup was going to be easy. 


The shapes of the face brushes are all different and are matched in the eye brushes. There are brushes which contouring would be perfect for. There is an eye pencil brush which I'm rather excited to use and is resembled in a face brush, perfect for concealer. I think that there is a brush for every product. 

Although the eye brushes are rather large. They are so big for my little eyes but I believe that they are workable as well as the blending brush is perfect to get right in the eye crease. 

The finish 

Left- Real Techniques Right- Kabuki

I applied my everyday Rimmel Bb Cream and the flawless finish that was created was lovely. I felt that the brushes made the application of the foundation so easy and it didn't need buffing in as much as I would have usually done with my Real Techniques brush. 

I wouldn't forget about my lovely real techniques brushes but they do have some competition.

Let me know about what brands you use for make up brushes

Little Mix Leigh Anne Make Up Drug Store


Sorry for missing last week- I have been super busy with school and ,as I have just started a new job, work.

I saw Leigh Anne wear this look while looking through twitter. I loved it and decided to make it more wearable for me. Although I would and do love to wear lots of make up , I just don't need to for school or work. So I have changed the lip product to a balm rather than a matte.

Rimmel Match Perfection
MUA Pro-Base Powder
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
MUA Brow gel (Don't sure o this product0
Little Mix by Collection Bronzer
Rimmel Good to Glow Highlight 003
Little Mix by Collection All about the eyes palette (I used the third from the left shade over the lid and the cream as a strong inner corner highlight)
Collection Extreme Eye Liner
Maybelline Collossal Volume Express Mascara
Paint the town Red Vaseline (This is what makes the look wear able) 
Let me know if you have been loving the Little Mix's girls makeup and if you have used their collection products

Left On The Shelf | #2


So its been a while since I have done one of these posts (Previous Post)  but I thought I would bring it  back especially since I have been using products which, you have guessed it, been left on the shelf. If you are new then the idea is that I show you some of the items which have been in my makeup/ clothes collection for a while however, I have re-discovered.
 I have three different products which I have been loving recently. Some have featured on here before but others I don't think have.
Elizabeth Arden- Green Tea Exotic

This is hands down my favourite perfume ( of my small collection). I only wear it in summer and on special occasions as its so hard to find. Although Elizabeth Arden has lots of different beautiful perfumes, there is never this one on sale. Its such a summer smell , if you like floral scents which aren't too strong then I would recommend this ( if you can find it ). I believe its around £20. 
If you have seen it, can you let me know in the comments where I can purchase another bottle, thank you!
Makeup Academy- Undress Your Skin Radiant Under Eye Concealer

Wow that's a long name! I have a couple of concealers which I haven't touched in a while, however, I have been noticing people (bloggers and youtubers mainly) using MAC prep and prime radiance concealer pen. I was thinking about getting one when I remembered I have a drug store version already. I use it over my concealer (if I'm having a bad day) as well as on its own.
Urban Decay- Perversion Mascara

This featured in my last post (HERE) and I forgot how good it was. Its makes your lashes thicker which I love as mine are quite thin. Although I did you an eye lash curler, the hold of the curl was good. The formula is quite thick however, I think its the perfect mascara for a smokey eye.
So that's some of the left on the shelf products which I have been loving at the minute. Again, let me know if you know any where that I can find the Elizabeth Arden perfume.
