MAKE UP OF THE DAY - 28/7/11

 So, today I decided to use my one and only Sleek Palette from the Mediterranean collection to create this sunset inspired look.
Firstly, I used Washed Ashore the matte orange colour in the inner corner and then blended that out with Sunset the burnt orange colour and then applied that all over the lid. After that I then put Moore Treasure the plum colour in the outer corner and in the crease I then blended it up. Then I applied Bamboo the very light cream colour to the brow bone and blended it in with Moore Treasure just so it all blended nicely together. Then I decided that I didn't like the orange on its own so I applied Retrospeck (by MAC) a shimmery gold colour over the Washed Ashore. I also experimented with having Sunset and Moore Treasure under the eye but it didn't loo right, after taking it off I still had a little bit of sunset on the outer part under my eye, I liked that so taking an angled brush I put Sunset just at the outer sides. Oh and also black liquid liner by Collection 2000 and MAC Zoom Lash Mascara and Volia the final look:
It's actually a really simple and nice look :)

Updated MAC Palette

I brought my MAC palette not so long ago and as of now I have 7 out of 15 colours. 
I do plan to get more and I also have £15 on my Debenhams card so I will probably buy 2 more pan eye shadows retailing at £9.50 each. 

The shadows I have are...

Retro Speck is a lustre finish it is a pale gold with lots of shimmer in it which as you can see i'm nearly out of! - I used to use this a lot everyday for school all most but now I don't use it that much at all :(

Naked Lunch is a frost finish it is a kinda of peach tone colour with gold shimmer in it is a new one to my collection, I was planning to buy all the glitters but they didn't have that naked lunch is pretty simular so I opted for that one :P

Patina is a satin finish it's hard to describe but its a golden brown colour I LOVE this colour all over the lid with Satin Taupe on the crease it looks beautiful :)

Woodwinked is a veluxe pearl finish it is a kinda of warm antique golden colour with a strong copper undertone this is the first eyeshadow from MAC I brought because it just looked so beautiful, however with my pale skin tone it isn't so good, but I'm saving it for when I have a tan haha.

Shale is a satin finish while it looks purple-ish in the pan it actually comes out as a more grey purple colour it is however a beautiful colour!

Satin Taupe is a satin finish and it's a taupe colour hehe it is so beautiful I love this colour i think that it is defiantly one that everyone should have :)

Smut has a velvet finish to it and again this colour purple-ish in the pan but  actually comes out as a dark brown almost black colour with a purple sheen to it, it looks great with satin taupe in fact id say its satin taupe's darker version :) 


I also have a wish list of other colours i'd like to add to my collection these being: 
  1.  Vanilla
  2. Dazzlelight
  3. All that Glitters
  4. Mulch 
  5. Copperplate 
  6. Handwritten
  7. Mystery 
  8. Idol Eyes 
unfortunately buying all of those will a) cost A LOT and b) i'll have to buy another palette but next time one for colours hehehe

Summer Reads

Summer is officially here - yaaaay! In the summer I like to wind down and relax by reading. Early this year I read Looking for Alaska by John Green and now it is my all time favourite book! I even brought a copy of my own! I have high hope for this book too Paper Towns by John Green, John Green is a great writer for teenagers and he and his brother also have a youtube channel called - vlogbrothers. It's pretty funny.

Anyway, I go to my local library to borrow books, it's free ( as long as you don't bring the books back late) and you can also reserve books if they aren't there like I reserved Paper Towns, although it took the librarian ages to find it because she typed in Paper Towels haha.

This is the first of my summer reads and if it's anything like Looking for Alaska it will be so gripping that I won't be able to put it down!!

I will review this book after I've read it, and I'm always looking for good books so if you have any suggestions for my summer reads please comment below.

So far my summer reading list is as follows:

1. Paper Towns - John Green
2. A Certain Age - Rebbecca Fay
3. The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky
4. (Re-read) Looking for Alaska - John Green
5. It's Kind of a Funny Story - Ned Vizzini

    No Heat Challenge UPDATE!

    I am doing well with the no heat challenge I haven't used any heat at all. And my hair feels softer than ever, which could also be due using the herbal essences split ends intensive mask which is AMAZING! My hair is so soft, I can't quite believe it!

    Worst cleanser ever?!?!

    Superdrug's own brand cleanser retailing at £3.99 has to be one of the worst products I have ever tried. The product itself contains tea tree oil and aloe vera extract - which is meant to be a very soothing oil for the skin. However it also contains peppermint oils, which is the part I don't like.

    I was following my usual nighty routine of removing my make up and so on, when I used this product for the first time. I put the product onto a cotton wool pad and began to remove the dirt and make up from my skin, and the peppermint smell just hits you straight away. I didn't even go near my eyes with this product and It made my eyes water the smell is so over powering.

    After using this product my face was very sore and red - also like the product had burnt my skin!! It was awful, however thankfully now my skin has calmed down. Maybe It is because I have sensitive and dry skin I don't know but one thing is for sure this product is going in the bin.
