I'm really trying to start getting more Beauty posts on my blog and i thought what better way to start than with a 'My Everyday Makeup Look' post! These photos aren't the best because i'm still learning more about makeup everyday, but this is just kind of me getting the hang of the basics.

I recently purchased the L'oreal Infallible Foundation and i actually love it! The shade Vanilla colour matches to my skin perfectly! It doesn't feel cakey when i wear it either, and it keeps me matte all day with the help from the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder. My all time favourite concealer at the moment is all everyones favourite, the Collection Lasting Perfection one. It is fabulous and i find it covers my dark circles perfectly! In this photo i think i've over bronzed my cheeks, but that's not surprising considering i'm still trying to improve. I should of blended it more or used some tissue to take some of the product off. I accidentally bought 2 of the highlighter i'm wearing so i'm hoping to get more use out of it. I probably could of put a bit more on the apples of my cheeks. Once all my makeup is finished i spray the Makeup Fixing Spray from Makeup Revolution on my face about 3 times and i genuinely think it does hold my makeup in place as nothing smudges or smears!

For my eyebrows i'm loving using the Benefit Gimee Brow but for something so small it's quite expensive at £18.50. No idea what i'm gonna do when i run out because i don't want to spend nearly £20 on a piece of makeup. (I'm a cheapskate) I'm also loving Benefit Roller Lash. I fell in love with this mascara when it came out and it's still a firm favourite of mine. I've had this L'oreal eyeshadow palette for a while but only just used it the other day and i'm loving some of the colours in there that are perfect for everyday such as the golds and beiges.

Lip wise, i'm wearing my favourite nude combination which is the Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip Liner in Spice and the Rimmel X Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick in 08. I think they compliment each other really well. Unfortunately in the closer photos of my lips which i haven't used, my lip liner is showing more on one side than the other so i think i need some more practice with it. The lipstick i take everywhere with me i've bought it about 3 times now and still love it.

I hope you like this sort of post and there should be more beauty posts in the future :)

-side note. As you're reading this i will be in Leeds attending the #bloggersblogawards awards ceremony at 3pm. I'd love to have won but if i haven't i'll survive. Wish me luck!!

OOTD: Plain & Simple

H&M Knitted Pink Jumper (similar here)
New Look Black High Waisted Skinny Jeans
Primark Black Chelsea Boots (similar here)
Miss Selfridge Silver Layered Necklace (similar here)

Firstly i'm going to apologise if these links don't work now, but i've had to write this post in advance and schedule it. Hopefully the links will still work, but if not, then sorry.
This is such a simple outfit, but sometimes simple outfits can be the best ones. As you can see i'm wearing jeans, which is very rare as usually i'm in either in a skirt or dress. I really wanted a nice pair of black high waisted jeans and when i saw these i just bought them without really thinking about it whether i'd wear them. I do like them but whether i'll get much wear out of them is a different story. I got this knitted pink jumper from H&M at the end of Spring, beginning of Summer, and i love it. It's so cosy and i'm a big fan of the pale pink colour. It's a very simple jumper but on the arms it looks kind of like it's inside out. I think it's a really nice little detail though. I love chelsea boots when the Autumn/Winter seasons appear, i just think they're an amazing style of shoe. I bought this Primark pair for £13 which i thinks a pretty reasonable price for a pair of shoes. Due to the zips on the sides of these and the way i walk means the zip always catches my leg, especially when i'm wearing tights which is most of time. I've actually gone and bought a pair from New Look because these are just going to rip holes in my tights. There perfect for when i'm going out in the wheelchair though as i'll just be sitting. I love this necklace. There was another part to it but my dad accidentally broke it which is a shame as it was another layered necklace but with 3 layers and with this one it just looked incredible. I think this necklace still looks really good together and can really just add something to an outfit. I also really like my hair & makeup in these photos, and it's actually how my hair goes naturally which is a win!
