Makeup i use everyday...

A Nice little piccy....

hey, well since i visit my makeup site everyday i thought i show what i do for my usual day of makeup....see pics for the finished look and before and after

here's the list of what i did for the pic above (and pic):


Superdrug vitamin E Moisture Lotion
Mayberlline Infallible 16hrs in porcelain
Gosh Bronzing Pearls in a light brown


L'oreal Star Secrets Penélope Cruz
Rimmel Kohl black pencil eye liner


L'oreal 6hr Glam shine in Mauve

Brushes used

Mac 224SE Blending brush
Cheap foundation brush from Superdrug
Cheap Bronzer/blusher brush from Superdrug
cheap e/s brush from Ulta xmas collection.
look below for pic by pic show of how i did it...
This is the before look.. with blotchy kinda reddy skin....

Foundation on...
to be honest there is alittle bit of my moles showing through but it still looks better....

Here's some pics with the Mayberline Infallible foundation on:

Its got a nice fragrence to it
It blends into the skin well (well i have had some problems but see cons for that)
it apprently last a long time aswell, the bottle looks quite small but i am assured that it lasts a while)
its medium priced at £10.99 (in usa its around $10-13 dollars from the local drugstore e.g. CVs ect)


After the shop assistant put on the foundation it looked amazing (she used a more expensive powder brush from GOSH, she didnt realize it was a powder brush but it worked better then their auctual foundation brush lol...well anyway )
I put on foundation next day using a cheaper version of the GOSH brush (ordered the gosh powder brush as it was out of stock :( ) it went on really bad and did not go on evenly i had to remove it 2times for it to do it so it diffinantly needs a profesional brush to apply it with.

It rubs off very easy too which is odd really and kinda anoying so it needs alittle time to dry propperly i would say

If you are one of these people that shines when your warm it does do that too and it seems to like be melting ur face but dont be put off by this as if you apply alittle powder/bronzer it'll help calm it down and absorbe alittle better.

basically its a good foundation, good coverage good price and lasts awhile but may need a few practices to make it look right...

Eye shadow pics....
In this pic im applying the first colour to the outter part of my eye, which is like a very dark brown which has like a golden base to it.

other eye ...

Applying lighter brown to the inner corner of my eye...

what it looks like so far with both eyes done with 2 shades...

Now on this one ive applied the light white colour as a highlight not sure if its clear on this pic but it looks quite uneven and needs blending....(which is kind of a downer on the star secrets i think as if you just apply it as it tells you too it would look kinda wiered so it deffinantly needs blending to look good..)

Heres my prize posetion really as i love my Mac blending brush...its the only mac or proffesional brush i have. I would love to have their full set of brushes but need alot more money for that hehe.Mac is not very well known or not known enough i think in the UK but it is an amazing cosmetic line which should be sold more frequently in shops as i neeeed their makeup lol.

Now blending all 3 colours into each other starting from the conor (per advice from the makeup blogger Vanessa at

Now to apply the eye liner, this is the rimmel Kohl black pencil which i use alot (hence the size is kinda small as i sharpen it alot lol)

This is the look with the eyeliner on (only along bottom of the eyes as if i put it on the top of the lid aswell it tends to dominate the eye as i dont have alot of crease to work with..) Sorry for the goofy sorta look godnoes why it looks like that and also PLEASE EXCUSE THE EYE BROWS i need them doing desperatly ..will get on that lol

Now this is with mascara on. This one is the mayberlline Define A Lash which is better then most mascaras ive used but im not sure if the picture does my lashes justice as they do look quite nice in person lol..

Lips before and after...
Ive actually got alittle foundation on my lips as a base but my lips are alittle chappted so hence the iky look of them...

I like this colour on me as its not too bright and its not too dull its simular to my natural shade of my lips so it doesnt make me look too out-there..

Heres the finished pics a bit posey but i do get my bord moments and pose away hehe...would'nt make a good model takes loads of pics to find at least one abit desent lol
