Video // Get ready with me | Neutral smokey eye

Hello lovelies, i hope your all well and having a wonderful week. Today i uploaded a new get ready with me video with a neutral smokey eye using the Urban Decay naked basics palette.
This is a look i wear in the day time but i think it could easily be worn for an evening look too, especially if you throw on a pair of false lashes. This isn't a tutorial as such but i have included which shade I'm using for what so if you wanted you could still recreate this look easily. I hope to do more in depth tutorials once i have managed to get some professional lighting.

Products used: 
benefit the pore fessional
maybelline baby lips 
bourjois healthy mix serum shade 52
collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer shade light
maybelline mastershape brow pencil shade soft brown
mua pro brow kit
soap & glory solar powder
mac mocha blusher
mac mineralize skinfinish soft & gentle
urban decay naked basics palette 
mua eyeliner black
revlon eyelash curlers
revlon lash potion mascara 
gosh defining brow gel
mac mineralize skinfinish medium
maybelline lip liner shade sweet pink 
mac lipstick shade creme cup

I especially love making this look more intense and darker now that it's autumn as i think it works really well with big cosy jumpers and a beanie.

NOTD // L'Oreal Boudoir Rose

Hello lovelies, hope your all having a wonderful week so far. Today as you can tell from the title is a nail polish related post and my word this shade is the meaning of beautiful!
L'Oreal color riche nails - Boudoir rose £4.99

If your not a fan of nudes then this polish isn't for you, however i am a massive fan so the new L'Oreal nude range makes me want to go all Pokemon where i have to catch them all haha. I have a few riche nail polishes now and i am a big lover of their formula and this one didn't disappoint, it glides on, dries quickly and last extremely well on my nails. 

The biggest win for me though is even though it's a light colour i only needed two coats! Now other nail fans like myself will realise how much of a big deal this is as normally for beautiful light nude shades you have to apply a million coats to get a solid colour so it's not one you can apply in a hurry, well you can kiss goodbye to that problem with this shade. As for the colour i can't express my love for this shade enough but i think i was only allowed to wear one shade of nail polish for the rest of my life this would have to be it!

Are you a fan of beautiful nude shades or are you a bold colour kinda gal? X

Review // Topshop Glow Polished

Hello lovelies, hope your all having a wonderful day. Today I'm sharing my thoughts on a cream highlighter that I've been meaning to share for a very long time.
Topshop Glow Cream Highlight - Polished £9

I've always used powder highlighters like my MAC soft and gentle that i can never seem to put down but i wanted something a little softer and would give a more seamless natural glow and when i swatched it this seemed to fit the bill. The texture is so creamy and light, it makes it a dream to blend in and your able to have it as sheer as you want which works brilliant for "no make-up" days. 

It has a lovely pale champagne colour with a gold shimmer that is extremely pigmented so a little really does go a long way. Because it's so pigmented it may look a little daunting when first applied but once blended out the colour becomes a lot more subtle and natural with a nice dewy finish. I love to use this on the top of my cheek bones to make them more prominent, i also like to apply a little bit on my brow bone too but you can use it for wherever you'd like to highlight. 

This is a wonderful affordable highlighter that can be used for both day and night looks as it's so buildable. Do you like creme highlighters? X

TAG // My Firsts

Hello lovelies, hope you've all had a wonderful day. Long time no see right, if you follow me on twitter you will know I've been MIA cause me and my baby boy have been rather poorly and sadly he still is so blogging has had to take a bit of a back seat. Anyways the lovely Emma from not your average blog tagged me in the my firsts post, it's pretty much the blog equivalent of the similar named You Tube video tag. 

First concert?
Alice Cooper on what i think was his brutal planet tour in 2002....2003? I'm not too sure which year but i remember being around 12/13. I'm a massive Alice Cooper fan and as a Christmas gift my mum took me to Cardiff to see the legend play live and it was amazing! 

First kiss?
I'm gonna class my first kiss from when it actually meant something and was proper instead of the little pecks i had prior haha. It was with a lad called Adam when i was 14 and we actually stayed together for nearly three years.

First best friend?
I have two which i have basically been friends with since the dawn of time haha so I'm not sure who came first but that is my very dear friends Rosie and Shaunie who i still talk to and see a lot and are basically like sisters to me.

First job?
My first job was a temp Christmas position in House of Fraser on the Swarovski concession when i was 17. I actually really enjoyed it cause i got to look at pretty sparkly jewelry all day haha however we had to stand up through are whole shift and it used to kill my feet.

First music i bought?
I'm totally blank with this question but i really want to say it was Linkin Park Hybrid theory which i got when i was just leaving primary school and i used to play it all the time.

First phone?
The Nokia 3510 and i bloody loved that thing haha. I got it when i was 13/14 and i begged my mum for it and managed to talk her into it by saying she could then keep in contact with me when i was out with my friends. I'm actually pretty sure it's in a draw somewhere at my mums still! 

First car?
I can't actually drive yet I'm currently learning but seem as I'm on the insurance and I've drove it a few times plus it's what I'll drive when i do pass, so i guess it'll be my chaps BMW 323ci coupe. 

First tweet?
Considering i have done over a whopping 4000 tweets i have no idea and i can't seem to go back that far haha but I'm sure it would be along the lines of how confusing is this.

First make-up?
Apart from just using my mums i remember buying the Maybelline great lash mascara and my mum gave me a fancy name branded black gel eyeliner. Due to this the majority of my teenage years i had panda eyes and thought it was a good look haha.

First celebrity crush?
I honestly can't remember so i think i would have to say it was Chester Bennington the lead singer from Linkin park.

First holiday without parents?
 It probably doesn't count as we was with his mum but when i was with my first serious boyfriend we use to go to Haven once a year for a long weekend haha. 

First blog post?
You can actually read my very first post here if you would like to but it was basically a rather short hello and brief introduction to me and what my blog was going to be about. I don't know if you can tell but i was extremely shy and nervous about starting my blog. 

So there we go that's some of my firsts, what's yours? I tag all of you so make sure if you do this post to leave a comment below so i can get to know you a bit more too. X
