vampy lip video cover_edited-2

Hey Guys… sorry I have not posted in a week or so been cray cray busy! BUT I’m back with a double whammy! Post and Tutorial on a new makeup look!

This is an easy eye look that is so versatile, if you just change the lip colour it will completely change the look to match your outfit, time of year or just to match your mood!

So here is some screen shots of the different colours I went for and down the bottom is the tutorial on how i got this face!

hope you like it!

classic ey e nude lip

milani nude creme stick

This one is also by Milani and is called Nude Creme – a classic amazing nude colour! available HERE and again only £3.41 (+ shipping!)

bloody mary lipstick video

nyx bloody stick

This one is one of my all time FAVs – NYX Matte lipstick in Bloody Mary, such a phenom red lip colour and sooo creamy! available HERE – £3,59 (+ shipping)

atomic lip video

mua atomic stick

This last one is by MUA available in store at Superdrug or online HERE so this colour i LOVE although it is extremely hard to apply! its like what they are calling velvet finish so it kinda dries on your lips and is super hard to get off!! so although i love the colour its very bright orangey in real life I think i would rather try and find one with a different finish but for £3.00 I would still buy it! haha

Boyfriend Jeans

boyfriend jeans with shoes only_edited-2

Hey Guys… So here is a Fashion post for you on Boyfriend Jeans they seem to be everywhere at the mo! and I LOVE them!!always have and always will!

Here I have gone for a kinda mixture, I would call this like a kinda Sport Luxe look , as I have teamed it with this cute cropped hoody but then with some lush Rihanna heels to bring some femininity back to the otherwise fairly tom boy look

I have also done some denim on denim action in this, which is something I have always hated but i think if it is done right with two slightly different colour denims (def no matching!) then it can look good

Hope you like it!!

PS – My boyfriend Jeans in this post are from H&M BUT I have customised them more – ripped them up more myself and distressed them – if you would like a kinda D.I.Y video tutorial on how I do this then please let me know in the comments box below!

Things I’ve been loving…

topshop mattenails_edited-2

Hey Guys…..I have found a few new products over the last month and some that are just key things for me, so I thought I would share some of them with you…

First up is MATTE NAIL VARNISH I am just loving Matte nails right now. the only thing that annoys me is i do find they don’t stay Matte for that long!!! Even with a matte top coat on top of a matte nail colour!!

BUT here are a few of my fav colours right now

topshop mattenails

These two are TOPSHOP ones, which i had never tried their nail varnishes before but these are PHENOM! and this Lilac one!!! i just can’t explain how amazing it is, and for spring! just AMAZE!

These next two are BARRY M and again just loving the nudey/neutral grey/brown tones they have in matte pair it with like gold or silver rings just looks sooo good together

barrym matte nails

Next up sticking with the Matte theme! I am still in love with Matte lipsticks! i did a whole post on these!! but i found a new colour in the NYX matte lipsticks in BLOODY MARY! (what a great name!)  If you want a little more info on the Matte lipsticks then check out my other post MATTE LIPS

bloodymary stick and lips

Ok moving on now to moisturizer! OK, so i am like the worst at putting on body moisturizer! i know that is an awful thing, I just go through stages where I use it religiously and then i go off it and don’t use it AT ALL!! BUT for me its all about finding the right one, I hate ones which take ages to rub in, when it goes all white and your just like grrrr rub in already!!! but then i also hate ones which sit on your skin, and then don’t get me started on the ones that take FOREVER to dry! so I have found the perfect one, for me, I used to use the Garnier ultimate body oil, which i did really like, but i didn’t actually feel like it was nourishing my skin but then! they only went and brought out one thats a moisturiser with the oil in it!! its literally like Garnier heard my brain and said here you go Tashie! so this is top fav!

Garnier Oil Beauty | Oil-infused NOURISHING (see they def heard me!) Lotion

garnier oil full length

Next up staying with nourishment this is a trusty old fav of mine that i have used for years and years ever since i went to Australia, which was like 8 years ago!!! It is the PAWPAW ointment.  I use this on my lips every night, and my lips are NEVER dry, i also use it like anywhere dry, hands, face anywhere! its a multi purpose miracle balm

I buy mine from EBAY now but there used to be an Australian store (selling everything Australian!) in London, convent Garden to be exact, I haven’t been there for ages though so not 100% sure its still there…. but EBAY have loads! I also have a little handbag size one for emergency dryness!

pawpaw

DRY SHAMPOO – I know it’s a terribly lazy thing to use! but when you have thick long hair or even fine hair you do not want to be washing your hair everyday! and in fact it is not good to wash your hair that often so sometimes a little dry shampoo is all you need!

I have used the batiste one for ages, i must say I’ve never really liked it, it makes my hair feel gross, smell gross (I’ve tried every scent!) and it just feels dirty but covered up, if that makes sense, so i am always on the look out to try new ones

This one i have recently bought a few weeks ago now, is honestly another level of dry shampoo, it literally feels like i have washed my hair, and it’s soft and smells like freshly washed hair scent! so here it is

dry shampoo

Last one of my favourites, who anyone that knows me, would be expecting this!!! I LOVE AN IPHONE CASE!!! LOL

SO here are my fav three of the month!! I buy most of mine from EBAY or ETSY, if your worried with which sellers to trust etc or bad quality, you can always contact me and i will send you the link of who i use so you know you will get the same quality and trusted seller

iphone cases

So you have the

Top Left | Moschino (Macdonald’s chips)

Top Right | Chanel Perfume case with classic Chanel Chain

Bottom | Chanel Lego bag style case

So that is all of my top products i am loving right now, hope you liked it and have some new things to go out and try, they are all cheap and cheerful but get the job done!

Thanks so much for viewing

Pop of Pastel

blog 7 face_edited-5

Hey Guys…. So… I’ve never really been super keen on pastel colours, in fact, I’ve hated them in the past, look in my wardrobe and you will find black black black with a bit of black! BUT I have been trying, trying being the key word here, to introduce colour into my life (wardrobe!) I have picked up a few pastel pieces and actually really liking them, so thought I would show you one of my fav bits, I picked up this super cute pastel cropped knit jumper! I also grabbed this AMAZE snakeskin clutch! not pastel, BUT LOVE!!!!

Matte Lips

matte lips cover_edited-1

Hey Guys… I’m loving Matte lips right now so here are a few of my favs…. some high end and some drugstore ones : )

All above pics –  Mac – RiRi Woo – This is your statement red lip, it is VERY matte! and quite dry to put on so make sure you use some balm first!! apart from that i love it : )

 

Mac Lipliner in Dark Moth – I love this even on its own but its extremely dry looking so with Mac Media over the top is a perfect match!

NYX – Merlot is like a Berry colour, its very matte but feels so nice on your lips, nice and creamy, i love the whole NYX matte range they are such good value and they are super pigmented.

Rimmel Kate Moss range in 110 – i know you’re thinking it kinda looks like the one above – NYX Merlot, but trust me its so not the same! this one is almost neon like an orangey reddy colour and MATTE! I have almost all the Kate Moss range and like the NYX great value and super pigmented

PS – For all you Brits NYX isn’t as available here, I order all my USA drugstore make up from HERE loads of stuff and soooo cheap super quick delivery too : )

Thanks so much for viewing
