February Wishlist

Hello Everyone! Firstly I hope you all had a fabulous January, I know I certainly did! If you didnt already know, my birthday is coming up in March so I thought I would share with you guys some things that I have been resisting diving into my pockets to buy,in a kind of birthday/ February wish list!

First on my wishlist are some party outfits, I am going to Blackpool with the girls and a few other parties this month and I desperately need something to wear. These dresses are perfect for a night out! For anyone that wants to know they are both from missguided, a shop I absolutely love for affordable party dresses

Following on a similar photography trend, is this next item. For those of you who have been living in a hole, this is a film camera that prints out your pictures instantly after you take them. This fujifilm one is adorable and isn't bad for a camera at around £79.

Next is makeup, I am in desperate need for a brush cleaner and I have heard great hings about this mac one, it looks like it should be great value as well at only £10 

This is a product that people I know really rave about, the Sleek contour highlight and blush kit, I am in need of all three so this might have to be a cheek purchase as it comes in at around £9.99 

Okay so I hope you all enjoyed this post and sorry about the appalling quality of the photo collage!

Celebrity Style Crushes

It may come as a surprise to some of up you that I LOVE all things fashion related, so I thought I would share with you all the celebrity's who's style I love, and think slightly represents my own. I hope you guys enjoy...

1. Kylie and Kendall Jenner 
I personally love Kylie and Kendall's style, even though they are very different, both on and off the red carpet, I constantly check their instagram feed for style inspiration. Also, like these famous sisters, I love a statement lip!

2. Selena Gomez
Selena's style is really classy and elegant on the red carpet and I love all of the dresses she wears, here are a few of my favorites.... 

3. Cara Delevingne 
Who doesn't want this girls job honestly, I adore Cara's off duty model style which has a slight rock chick edge too it, I also love her messy styled hair! 


4. Taylor Swift 
I love Taylor's dressed down preppy but elegant and yet sophisticated wardrobe as much as her flawless red carpet gowns, her style is really cute, as well as being grown up and ladylike

Simple Golden Smoky Eye

Today I thought I would try to use more of the colors in my naked pallet, as i seem to use the same ones all the time
I created this look using 3 colours, Half baked, Chopper and YDK. I don't usually tend to use them as i don't think they suit my eye color very well, however, i ended up really loving this look! 

1. I first used Half baked- a really pigmented gold color in the inner corners of my eyes, and blended outward towards the center of my eye
2.I then blended chopper a slightly more bronze shade over the center of my lid 

3. In the outer corners of my lid and underneath my eye I used YDK, and then used the urban decay blending brush to blend all of the colors together 

4. To fill in my brows I used my illamasqua brow cake in the shade 'Stark' which is a reddy brown color, and then use the maybelline brow drama in the shade 'medium brown' to set my brows in place 

5. To finish off my Eye look I used my current favorite mascara- the Benefit ' They're real!' to give my lashes more volume and length 

And this is the finished look, I also added some of my favorite Kate Moss Red lipstick in the shade 111 (kiss of life) and a Revlon Lip butter in the shade 'Candy Apple' to make it a bit more interesting. I hope that you guys like this look, have a good weekend and i will try to post again soon!
