Beauty Look Book #FOTD: Blue Glitter Liner.

Today I wanted to post a face of the day look that I did a few weeks ago.. I can be so terrible at getting these up on time sometimes! Anyway, this look was basically done to showcase my new glitter liner that I got from Collection (2000) to add to my collection, it's in the shade night fever and it's so vivid! The glam crytals liners are seriously some of the absolute best, so packed with glitter and they show up so well.

So I kept the eyes simple with a skintone shade all over the lid, then I added some definition into my crease using MAC's Era and Mystery eyeshadow mixed together, I then used my Maybelline black gel liner and created a semi heavy winged liner, then I carefully did a line directly above that line with the night fever glitter liner, I did this for a couple of coats. I rimmed my eyes with black kohl pencil, smudged a little mystery and era along the lower lashline and threw on a few coats of Max Factor false last effect mascara.

The skin was simple, I used my Nude Magique from L'Oreal and some stay matte powder from Rimmel and I contoured with The Balm's Bahama Mana matte bronzer and used the Glossybox blusher on my cheeks. On my lips I filled in my lips with nude lipliner from rimmel and lightly topped them off with MAC Snob lipstick.

Kind of a big deal . . .

Hi lovelies!

So, last week Yours Clothing had a special offer on, where they were offering 5 different dresses for 99p each. I was lucky enough to get in there quite quickly and ordered my choice (this one) of the 5 (it was only one per person)..

When it came on Saturday I tried it on and loved it. This is a £60 dress that I got for 99p! I posted a snap of it on Instagram and I thought I'd share it here as I am thinking I'd like to start doing some more plus size 'fashion' type posts as I get be more positive about how I look! Nice clothes help! :-) 

Posting the pic was a big deal for me, just because I really struggle with confidence, especially body confidence, but I've lost over 4 stone since last July and I am finally starting to feel slightly happier with myself. People on Instagram were so lovely about the image too, you can see it on Instagram here.
.. Please excuse the grainy phone pic and weird angle, this was a first for me..
Ohh and . . *Sidenote* If you're interested in the weightloss stuff, I have a blog here.

A Beauty Haul.

I don't often post hauls on my blog because it isn't THAT often that I go out and just buy make up . . because I already have so much, so only if a product really grabs my attention will I make sure I get my hands on it.

From the above, I was really wanting The Rocket mascara and the Brow Drama, the others just came along because Revlon had 3 for 2 in Boots and Maybelline had Buy 1 get 1 half price in Superdrug. It would've been rude not to take advantage of such offers!
-Revlon Powder Blush ~ Racy Rose
-Revlon Colorstay Concealer ~ Fair
-Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm ~ Insaisissable Elusive
-Maybelline The Rocket Mascara ~ Black
-Maybelline Brow Drama ~ Dark Brown
I'll probably have individual reviews up on some of the products, sometime soon. As a quick over view though, I will say that I am enjoying all of my purchases! The blusher is a gorgeous colour and so blendable, the matte balm makes me want all of them, I love matte lips and it lasts so well. The concealer is amazing! I love colorstay foundation, so had an inkling the concealer would be great. The brow drama was something I wasn't sure of getting since I had read so many negative reviews on it, but it totally works for me and I am so glad that I have it, and I also love the rocket mascara!

Thanks for reading.. I hope y'all are liking the new layout too!
