Summer night out makeup look

beach so chich blog cover

Hey Guys!

So currently in the UK,  Summer is here then its gone again this is happening daily, just when we think YASSS summer has arrived it then pours down and it’s freezing again! Good old British weather!

BUT

I have filmed this Summer night out makeup look for you which I love for nights out in the summer time, it technically on paper probably shouldn’t work, as its like a cranberry colour which usually is associated with AW but I think paired with a super warm brown and blown out it looks amazing!

Also in this video I am wearing some new *Flash Tattoos by beachsochic.co.uk They were lovely enough to send me some to try out as I have never tried them before but have seen them everywhere this summer so was excited to give them a go as you all know how much I love my tattoos!

I think they look amazing, personally I like wearing them as jewellery, I put this one on my chest like a necklace and it looks so good and really catches the light, would also be cool for like beach/pool parties.

Anyway here is some pics of the look and then see below for full video on how I achieved it.

Makeup Collection and storage!

Heyyyaaaa Guys!

Its Friday EVE! : )

I have a new video up for you, a little different but its my makeup collection and how I store it etc…

I LOVE watching these videos personally as I am so into interior design which frustrates me as where I live now there is not enough space to have everything how I want it, so I kept putting off doing this video but then I thought well I can do one now and then do another one when its perfect!

So I hope you like it!

Valentine’s Day Makeup

val day make up blog cover

Hey Guyssss

So Valentine’s day is just around the corner, its next SATURDAY, for any guys reading this (doubtful!)

So here is my first of hopefully two makeup looks I have created for you for the special day!

To be honest I am not a fan of Val Day! Don’t get me wrong if I don’t get any flowers I will be having words! BUT that is all, I won’t be going out anywhere for dinner, I doubt, unless maybe with a group of friends of something, I just find it super cringe that you go to a restaurant and there is basically just S**t loads of tables for two jam-packed together so your basically eating a romantic meal with the couple next to you!

ANYWAY

I am all about cute little gestures and I think personally it is a lot more romantic if like someone takes you some where different or they just surprise you with a homemade dinner for two and throw a few cheesy rose petals around! hehe

SO that was a long old ramble! on to the good stuff MAKEUP!

Here is some pics of the first look I created, this one is definitely more romantic, soft and pretty, something I NEVER do, I always wear dark eyeshadow never light so this was very different for me but I love how it turned out.

January Blue Monday blues!

jan blues blog cover_edited-1

Hey Guyss

So I don’t know if its just me BUT I get terrible January blues, every year, same time and apparently today is Blue Monday a day that the media have decided to let us know its ok to be depressed on! ermmm NO how far is that going to get us if we actually say oh no don’t worry guys its Blue Monday, you are allowed to be down today! Like seriously what the F!

SO

I was determined this year to NOT let this happen! its so stupid its just another day in another month so why do we get like this?! I think for me its just because like its another year passed where you most likely haven’t done everything you set out to do and its a time of reflection of your past year, so if you had hoped to achieve more than you did, then you are probably going to get a tad down in the dumps about it!

I do think its a good idea to look at your past year but this time I have tried to focus only on the things I HAVE done and my goals I HAVE achieved, this has definitely helped me a lil bit.  I am not going to lie to you and say I haven’t had a few down days this month so far but no where near as bad as usual! I have been trying to focus on this year coming and what I want to do! I bought myself a cool new diary (see pic below)

tashietinks dairy

How cool is this customised diary though! I want to be more organised and I think if you have cute things like this it makes you want to write in it! like when you buy new gym gear makes you go to the gym more, even if its only to walk around the gym showing off your new kicks, you still made it to the gym and that my friends is a step in the right direction!

Anyway so to keep me busy and take inspiration from my January blues in a positive way I have made it in to a make up look! haha

Here I have used myVice 3 palette I got for christmas by Urban Decay – it has some AMAZING shadows in it but this matte navy blue caught my eye so the look started with this colour! Paired with some new Lashes by HUDABEAUTY which i also got for Christmas!

Here are some pics and then see video below : )

New Years Eve Make up Look

Heyyyy Guyss

Hope you all had an AMAZING Christmas!

So New Years Eve is round the corner so thought I would give you a make up look idea if you have a big party to go to or you just fancy getting glam for NYE!

When I think of NYE I think glitter! Gold Glitter! So I have gone for it with a dark black smokey eye and then a pop of gold glitter on the lower lash line : )

I love how it turned out and gives a little twist to your standard smokey eye, hope you like it!

Below is some images of the look and then the video tutorial on how you can achieve it is below with full list of products used.

My fav foundations!

foundation blog cover

Hey Guys

I think the most common question I get from you guys is

“What is the BEST foundation?”

Serioously!!! I get asked this ALL the time! Which is great I love getting questions from you asking my opinion and advice, but this is like the hardest question to answer! Anyone who has asked me this knows that I give a seriously long answer, listing about 4 or 5 different foundations and ALWAYS ask what skin type you have.

There are some key questions you need to ask yourself when looking for your perfect foundation!

Whats your skin type?

Dry?

Oily?

Combo?

What finish are you looking for?

Matte?

Dewy?

Natural?

How much coverage do you want/need?

Full?

Medium?

Light?

Ok so I am not going to write down every question! BUT you do have to ask yourself these questions to really find your perfect foundation on your own.

Personally my skin type is kinda oily, like, ok, it gets oily in the T-Zone easily but the rest of my face is just normal, not dry, just normal.  My skin is also quite sensitive in the way that some products will break me out, this is a massive NONO! I like a dewy finish but this is also hard to achieve with an oily t-zone! not impossible but tricky! I like a medium coverage, I don’t really like to build my foundation up too much to a full coverage as I like it to look as natural  yet perfectly flawless as poss!  This is what I go for most of the time, however, I do sometimes switch it up and with some looks I like a matte finish or a light coverage, so I have a few different foundations to suit the look I am feeling that day/night!

SO

Here is whats in my main draw at the moment! (current ones I use the most!) my top 3! not in order as I couldn’t decide!

L’OREAL TRUE MATCH

For those of you who think you can’t find a great foundation at the drugstore, well I’m sorry to say, you would be wrong!

This foundation is probably my most used and has been for a long time now for these reasons

It is soooo reasonably priced! around £9.99 HERE

They have such a large colour selection! (hence why I have so many!)

It lasts really well and looks good in photos, it has a build able coverage so is good for Day or Night and is super easy to blend!

The finish is like natural to matte I would say, like it’s not dewy but it’s not super matte either its just natural then I guess!

loreal true match

Next up is a new fav and if you follow me on instagram you would of seen me post this! its the

DIOR STAR FOUNDATION

Around £32.00 and available HERE

OK so this one is new, a little pricey but I have been using it non stop for like 2 weeks ish, so far I do love it BUT it may, MAY, be breaking me out! it’s not long enough to tell for sure as I’m at that breaking out time of the month! (TMI) so I am going to keep using it and will keep you updated! because the finish is amazing and super hard to explain. It’s not dewy and def doesn’t make me oily but it has like this glow, I think it looks like an inner glow! haha that sounds cray cray but it is like light illuminating! it lasts ages, medium coverage but could be build able, the product itself is thicker than I thought but super easy to blend. At the Dior counters they have a little gadget they put against your skin and it throws out your perfect colour : )

DIOR STAR

Next up and making it in to my top 3 is

MAKE UP FOREVER HD FOUNDATION

Around $42.00 so thats around £27.00 available from Sephora HERE (they now ship to UK!!!!)

WOW ok so I went on to the Sephora site to get the link for you guys and well that was like an hour ago and £157 later! eeekkkkk

ANYWAY

This foundation is phenom! I personally think its the best one for photos, its a natural flawless finish, great coverage, still medium but build able without being heavy or cake, it is fairly thick ish with amazing colour selection.  Supposedly this is the one Kim K wears so its must be good right?!

A Little annoying to buy if you’re in the UK as you can only buy it online, no stores sell it here, so unless your super confident in choosing your colour by a photo or you’re planning a trip to Europe, I think Paris would be our closest store! (Great excuse to head over there!)then it’s a little tricky one! If it helps the colour I bought which was kinda blind as it was at IMATS and was like the busiest stand so it was like a grab what you can! I went for this one and I am an NW30 in Mac and this colour seems to suit me perfect.

MUFE

OK so that is my current top 3!

Others that I do use and love are

YSL TOUCHE ELCAT

Around £30.50 HERE

Great for a more dewy glowy finish

YSL

Next up

ESTEE LAUDER DOUBLE WEAR

Around £26.55 HERE

Great full coverage (if you build it) matte finish but not drying, super super long wearing and def doesn’t break me out at all!

ES DW

Finally another Drugstore one, also by L’Oreal

L’OREAL NUDE MAGIQUE

Around £9.99 HERE

This is my most natural one it literally is like your skin but better, you can wear it on its own with no other make up if you want to pop to the shops but don’t want to look all uneven and blotchy! but it doesn’t look weird, you know like that I have foundation on but forgot to do the rest of my face weird look! it doesn’t look like that at all! really natural.

nude magique

There is still a few foundations out there on my wish list so let me know what your favs are as well so I can try them too!

My wish list is

NARS – Sheer Glow

Armani – Luminous Silk

EX1 Cosmetics – Invisiwear liquid (meant to be great for olive skin tones, in fact I might go buy this now! its great value! like £10.50 HERE)

I hope this post has helped you out if you are looking for a new foundation, if anyone does have any questions I am happy to give further help and advice on the products I’ve mentioned as I am sure there will be more questions! : )

Thanks so much for reading this very long post for me!

Love
