How To Plump Your Lips – Get Fuller Lips

There are many ways you can achieve fuller lips, right at home! Whether its for everyday or special occasions, I always use these beauty tricks when needed.

Fuller lips are the most popular beauty feature right now but there are ways to make your lips plumped naturally without injections. I like enhancing my own lips that still appear natural, so if you’re looking to make a small natural difference thats going make your lips stand out a bit more then I have some ideas that may help you.

Lip scrubs

I love using a lip scrub as it exfoliates your lips getting rid of dead skin, making your lips super smooth also using a scrub will help increase blood-flow to your lips giving you a nice natural plumper lip. This is what I use if I’m going on a night out before applying my makeup. Jeffree Star Cosmetics have a lovely lip scrub in flavour candy, its safe if some of the product goes in your mouth but try not to sallow the product. This products smells lovely and does the job. This product is available on BeautyBay for £12.

If you don’t want to splash out some money for a lip scrub there are other ways, like home remedies! You can take your tooth brush and brush your lips in circular motions with some water, this helps increase blood-flow and get rid of dead and rough skin or you can take some sugar. Yes Sugar! This works just as good as a scrub and you can apply some oil with it, I would recommend coconut oil as this can be a good moisturiser and will help the sugar stick to the lips.

If you want to be a bit more adventurous you can take some Cinnamon, if you can take the tingling feeling, you can mix this with an oil also, which help your lips feel smooth and plumped.

Lip Liner

When it comes to makeup, for my lips I like to take a concealer and apply a little on my lips making sure its blended properly using a damp beauty blender this will help you re create your lip line when using a lip liner. I love using a brown, nude lip liner as this will give an illusion of a fuller lip. I would make the cupids bow a tiny bit higher then what they were and then for the sides of my lips I would follow my natural lip line. You don’t want to over line the sides as this will make it very obvious.

I want to share with you some youtube videos to give you a bit more of an idea of what I’m talking about lol. The Lip liner I currently use is MAC Lip Liner in the colour Spice, For lipstick I like using MAC Velvet teddy, Moisturising, Smells gorgeous and it is a beautiful colour!

If you are not into lip liner as much you can use a highlighter and applying a tiny bit on the cupids bow, this will help define your lips and make them stand out more. Even a lip gloss instantly gives you more of a fuller lip!

Lip kits

Lip kits are great and can you dont have to worry about finding the right lipstick colour to go with your lip liner and they already come together! You have probably heard of Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits. I have one myself and must say it does the trick giving you a matte fuller lip and is long lasting. What I would recommend when using the lip kit is applying a little vaseline over the top once dried just to give you some moisture as they can be very dry. I do like Jeffree star velour liquid lipstick as they are more moisturising, smell good and cheaper!

MY TOP 5 FAVOURITE FALSE LASHES

Hello Everyone, Today I wanted to share with you some great false eyelashes that I would recommend. I normally wear false eyelashes if I am going on a night out, a meal or for special occasions. I think they can really make your eyes stand out and can put a whole eye look together. I have a different range of Lashes from natural to full and wispy. Some lashes I have purchased are around £20 and lashes that are little as £4 and are just as good! It all depends on what style you like and what suits you best.

unnamed-4.jpg

My go-to lashes would be Lily Lashes in the style GODDESS. I adore these lashes, they have a nice full wispy effect and are perfect for all eye shapes. I would defiantly use these lashes if I am creating a dramatic glam makeup look. I personally cut my lashes to fit my eye as they can be too long, making my eye appear droopy looking. I make sure to cut the end of the false lashes where the longer hairs are as this blends better with your own lashes. I am wearing the Goddess eyelashes in the featured image on this blog post.

Seen on stars like Khloe Kardashian the Goddess lash is every girls go to daytime lash. If natural glam is your go-to style these lashes are definitely for you. Mimicking a natural lash formation, the Goddess Luxury Mink Lashes accentuate all eye shapes creating a wispy look. The unique criss-cross pattern works to blend seamlessly with your natural hairs for effortlessly flawless beauty. – Lily Lashes

 

Lily lashes are around the £20 mark, If you’re looking for something more cheaper and still great quality I would like to share with you a pair of lashes by the House Of Lashes in the style siren, costing £12. I love these lashes as they are not too full but still give a dramatic look. Perfect lashes if you want to show off your eyeshadow and fit all eye shapes. 100% handmade using human hair so will blend perfectly with your natural lashes!

If your looking for great lashes under £5 then I have found the most lovely lashes, I have purchased many pairs over the last few years and never fail to please me. These lashes are by Red Cherry Lashes in the style WISPY, costing only £4.99! They are super easy to apply and work well with any glue and are bendable. I prefer lashes that are bendable as they are so much easier to apply and I do not have to fuss about trying to stick them down. The lash glue brand I use is Duo, a great glue that dries quickly and keeps the lashes on all day but of course, I do bring the glue out with me just in case, better to be safe than sorry lol.

For more of a natural look, if I do decide to wear lashes in the day, I love Ardell Accent Lashes, these are £4.49 and lashes that I apply to the ends of my own lashes, these create an elongated eye for me and enhance your own lashes showing off the natural beauty of your eyes! I am wearing these lashes shown in the image below.

GLITTER FACE MASK?!

Hey Everyone! Today I came across a new-ish product that was released in December by Too Faced! I can’t believe that I have only just seen this product. How amazing does it look on the skin!? This is first time I have seen a glitter face mask on the market and I am impressed, What do you guys think?

Too Faced Co Founder & CCO posted an image on his Instagram page with quote

 “I’ve wanted to do a glitter mask for more than 5 years but the science just wasn’t ready. I’m so happy to tell you that Glow Job is almost here! It’s the most amazing radiance boosting and exfoliating peel-off mask I’ve ever used—and it’s infused with REAL glittering gold⭐️. It leaves your skin feeling smooth, soft and makeup ready—and it’s begging for a selfie. #tfglowjob #toofaced “

This product is called Glow Job, A radiance-boosting glitter face mask, infused with real gold?! I suppose this face make is fun to use as well as helping your skin look unreal! I defiantly want to purchase this product as I love trying out different face masks that are on the market. When I purchase this product, I will make sure to do a review for you guys 😀

 The packaging for GlowJob mask is simply gorgeous, sooo pretty! Too Faced are known for having such cute packaging.

This is on the market for $42 which is about £30.30. I suppose this mask is on the pricey side as you can get pretty cheaper masks out there that are very good and does the job. If you have any recommendations for great face masks please comment below as I would love to hear what masks you use.

I am really into sheet masks at the moment as they are easy to use and keep your face moisturised.

The Brand Star Skin has a great line of sheet masks which are cheaper at £8.50 and you can re-use. The mask showing below is wonderful for people who suffer with having blemishes & visible pores, this can instantly calm redness and relieve irritation.

 

 

 

 

How To Clean Your Makeup Brushes

Screen Shot 2018-01-19 at 19.41.17.png

Hi Everyone, Today I wanted to share with you on how I clean my makeup brushes, I try to do this once a week with the brushes I use everyday. With the brushes I rarely use, I tend to clean them when I know that I have to use them. I love to have my brushes feeling soft, I use to get worried that my brushes would get damaged by cleaning them but it is so important to sanitise your makeup tools. Especially when using for foundation, this can make your brush become dry and then gradually will make the application more hard to blend and can make your foundation to appear more caked and not so fresh looking. I believe it helps keep breakouts away, makeup brushes can hold bacteria which is not good so trying to avoid germs by cleaning your brushes can help keep those spots away!

Unknown

You can buy products that clean your makeup brushes but if you haven’t got time for that or want to use what you have at home then, I would to share with you how I clean my brushes at home.

  EASY … EASY … EASY 

I would suggest running your brushes under lukewarm water making sure you are getting most of the product off. Then I would fill a bowel with Lukewarm water and squirt some shampoo into the water, I personally like to use a shampoo with no harsh chemicals. I use Simple – Kind To Hair Shampoo. I would also recommend a gentle shampoo like a baby shampoo.

pout lips

I would gently swirl the brush tip into the water, this will help get all the products out without damaging your brush. If you feel that your brush still has product on it, You can empty the bowel at repeat the steps until you feel like all the makeup is out of the brush.

After this I would run my brush under the tap with lukewarm water again to rinse out the shampoo. I would take a clean flannel or towel, whatever works best for you, gently drying the brushes as I am reshaping the bristles on the brush into place. I would place my brushes on top of the flannel and leaving them to air dry. I like cleaning my brushes at night so I when I wake up they are dry, so no waiting about! .. Happy Days.

If you would like to buy a product that will help scrub your brushes clean, you may heard of these cleansing palettes that are used to deep cleanse your brushes. I myself have not yet purchased one of these, but I am willing too as the reviews are all positive and by what people are saying, it can save you time!!

The Secret | The Gratitude Book | LOA

Hi Loves,

This blog post is about LOA ‘Law Of Attraction’, I recently purchased this amazing journal   by Rhonda Byrne Called Secret Gratitude Book 

Screen Shot 2018-01-16 at 17.47.10

This Gratitude Book has helped me so much to think about the things I have in my life now which I am grateful for. Everyday I write down the things I am thankful for feeling a deep sense of Gratitude.

There is another page which allows you to write your intentions, you can use this to  attract what you want to bring into your reality. To do this I would write down what I would like to manifest as if I already have it and then thanking the universe for what it has brought to me.

It is so important for me to have Gratitude, it just makes you appreciate and realise how much positive things you have already got in your life.

It creates a positive attitude which then lifts your mood, makes you instantly happier just by being thankful. There is no doubt about it that being nice and positive lifts your spirits. I would highly recommend this book if you want to focus on the positives and to use the Law Of Attraction.

With my experiences, I have learnt that before manifesting something into my life and what I would love to have, I will have to let it go and surrender, not to force and hold on to it. Letting what you want go and simply going with the flow in life is so important. You may be disappointed if you do not see any results if you do not surrender, This can be why you are not manifesting anything into your life as you may be blocking it from coming your way. Believe as if you already have it, let it go and trust the universe to do the rest.

I want to show you some videos I watch on Youtube which I think will help you understand more about the Law Of Attraction and how to use it. Jake Ducey videos are great and so inspirational. Hope you Enjoy 🙂

Brown Copper Eyes Makeup Look

Hi Everyone,

Today I wanted to share this look with you that I created, I love a brown eyeshadow and thought why not try a Brown Copper eyeshadow to create something that will make my eyes stand out and pop!

I like to start off by using a concealer and apply this all over my eye lid. To make sure it blends well, I use a damp beauty blender this just evens the product out and stops the concealer drying too quickly. After applying the concealer, I then take a cream/white eyeshadow and apply all over my lid, this sets the concealer and will help smooth out the eyeshadows that I apply on after.

6E9F2791-9755-422F-A38B-256D0A8EC4F5

I applied a light brown into my crease this will help put the eye look together and define my eyes. I use a blending brush to blend the product out as I want to get rid of any harsh lines.

In the centre of my lid, I applied an eyeshadow from KIKO Cosmetics, I love their eyeshadows they are so pretty and good quality for the price! The one I used is Arctic Holiday Eyeshadow Palette.

ARCTIC HOLIDAY Eyeshadow Palette 01

Each palette contains three different finishes: metallic, satin and matte. The highlighter eyeshadow is offered in two shades, to create different personalised looks every time, thanks also to wet & dry use. – KIKO

I used the middle eyeshadow using a flat brush, to make the product more pigmented I used my MAC Fix + spray to make the brush damp and lightly dabbed on to my eye lid. I then got a medium brown eyeshadow and blended this into my crease just to put the whole eye look together. Then applied some eyeliner in my water line and my Dior show mascara.

ARCTIC HOLIDAY Eyeshadow Palette 01

This is such a Beautiful Palette and can switch it up. The first eyeshadow to the left, I think will be perfect to highlight your eye lid, adding into the centre, inner corner of the eye and a little bit under the brow arch. The last eyeshadow to the right is such a beautiful wine colour and will be nice to use for a smokey eye, I would use a dark brown and black eyeshadow to go with this colour.

To finish off the look I used my MAC Lipliner in the colour spice and Sugar bomb Lipgloss from Benefit.

How To Get Full Natural Looking Eyebrows

Hi Loves, Today I wanted to share with you a few products that I use to get full natural looking eyebrows. I love making my eyebrows look more fuller as I think it can really change the way you look. I use three products to achieve my brow look and would recommend all the products I am going to tell you about. I hope you can take something from this post and helps you, if you are looking for new brow products.

Screen Shot 2018-01-13 at 11.12.31

When it comes to sorting out my brows, I always make sure I pluck any hairs that are in between my brows, but only in the centre no where else. This is because I don’t like to over pluck, I use to get carried away when I was younger and I ended up having hardly no eyebrows left lol. I use castor oil on my brows to help them grow and this also makes your eyebrows thicker which has been a life saver for me!

Everyday I use my Revlon Colorstay Eyebrow Pencil, this is a great pencil to use as its smooth and easily to apply. I have this in the colour Soft Black. I start off by using the brush pulling my eyebrow hairs upwards, this just helps me create the shape I want much easier. I then use the angled tip to define and sculpt my brows.
I would recommend this product as it is good quality and only cost me £6.99.

After applying my Colorstay eyebrow pencil I then go over my brow using Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip brow Pomade in the colour medium brown, using an angle brush from Morphe. This just helps fill out the brows and covering any places I have missed, It also keeps all the products together and lasts through out the day.

The next cosmetic I want to talk about is a peel off, semi-permanent tinted eyebrow product. Once a week I like to apply Maybelline Tattoo Brow to my eyebrows this is great to help create a nice shape for your brows and lasts up to three days. This item cost me £12.99, I have to say for me that is a good price as each application lasts up to three days. I tend to use this the night before if I go out somewhere the next day.

Screen Shot 2018-01-13 at 11.13.42

Here are the steps to create your perfect brow!

Step 1:
Clean your brows and apply our Tattoo Brow tinted semi-permanent eyebrows over your existing brow hair. If any mistakes are made or you need to reshape, use a
cotton bud to easily remove your Tattoo Brow before it sets.

Step 2:
Leave your new brows to set for at least 20 minutes.
For super long wear, set the product for up to 2 hours.

Step 3:
Using your fingers to peel off the Brow Tattoo semi-permanent eyebrows by starting at
the inner corner of each brow.
The tint will be revealed underneath, giving you naturally fuller
looking brows.
Please note: To make the most of your long-wear tint, try
to avoid exfoliating or harsh cleansers

Soft Eyes & A Red Lip – Makeup Look

Hi Loves,

Today I wanted to share with you a makeup look which I think is perfect for work or school.

If you fancy changing up your everyday look I think a dark/bright lip colour than what you normally go for is fun idea.

I love using a soft brown eyeshadow when I have a dark lip on just because I don’t want to look too over the top for in the day. But it’s what ever best works for you!!

I love using my Gerard cosmetics lipstick in the colour fire engine. This is such a pretty colour and can really put an outfit together! This lipstick is moisturising and smells lovely.

When wearing a red lip, I think a cut crease eye look is great, it gives you a classy look and is great for all occasions.

I have came across a great eyeshadow which I think will go well with a red lip, it is matte and will give your eyelid a contoured look which will add definition.

This eyeshadow is in the colour bake sale by makeup geek, I swear by this brand as I know I am going to get good quality eyeshadows!

To keep the eyes natural I would just add a mascara, I use my Dior DiorShow. This is a lovely mascara and gives my lashes a nice length.

To add a nice glow I would recommend Becca cosmetics highlighter, this is very popular and this product is on various online beauty websites. I am using Gerard Cosmetics highlighter in the colour grace in the picture above.
