How I got the Look!

  1. First I applied The Mac paint pot all over my lids to prime them (This is very

important to do!)

2. I then set that with the white colour called ‘Strange‘ from The Naked 3 palette

3. Using the same palette, I Put thumbnail_FullSizeRender (38)Limit‘ all over and in

crease and built it up bit by bit sweeping upwards

4. I then added ‘Nooner‘ from Naked 3 and concentrated it in the outer v of my eye.

5. I then grabbed my Chocolate Bar palette and added ‘Strawberry bon bon‘ all over the crease to blend the previous eye shadows together and to make the look a little more pinky.

6. To intensifythe pinkiness of the crease a little more I added a little bit of the Nars blush ‘Orgasm’ right in the crease – but not blending upwards

7. Taking the Naked ultimate basics palette, I then added a little bit of ‘instinct‘ to faintly cut the crease. (the 2nd in from the right)thumbnail_FullSizeRender (40)

8. I then cut the crease using the collection concealer and a synthetic brush, putting the concealer all over my lid.

9. Then the fun part! I dipped my brush into the NYX glitter, sprayed it with Fix + and added it on top of the concealer, being careful not to place it anywhere else.

10. Using my Mac eyeliner I then did a simple wing

11. I then drew another wing directly above it using the NYX pink liner

12. Going back into the Naked ultimate basics palette I put ‘Commando‘ all under my bottom lash line. (3rd in from left)thumbnail_FullSizeRender (40)

13. I then Intensified it using ‘Lethal from the same palette, focusing on the outer edge and blending inwards. (end right)

14. for an inner corner highlight I used Becca’s Moonstone

15. I then added my falsies by Kiss

16. Next I went over my Lashes With the Better than sex mascara to join them with the falsies.

17. I then added random dots of the NYX pink liner under my eye

18. Lastly I did the same, But added the glitter instead

Conclusion of New Products

I LOVEEEEEEEEE them! I think my favorite has to be The Vivid Brights Liner, it’s so pigmented and goes on so smooth. The glitter is also a Beautiful colour and it’s not too chunky 🙂

Final Result

Brighton 13-14/02/17

For my (Megs) Birthday,  I only wanted to do one thing – go to Brighton. Its not that I hadn’t been before, but its just my favorite place in England and it brings me a great deal of happiness.

So we went for two days in February, and stayed in the Queens hotel, which is right by the sea and we had a beautiful view from our window. Me and Jess also both agreed the beds were extremely comfy.

Day 1

We focused on the Lanes when we arrived in the late morning and first stopped for a quick early lunch at good old Pret A Manger. We then walked through the lanes admiring the unique shops and amazing atmosphere, we bought a top and jacket from a vintage shop and lots of cute little snacks including two cups of tea from our favorite tea shop EVER Bluebird tea co., two cupcakes from the famous Angel food bakery and two juices from 42 juice – we approved

We then headed back to the hotel, enjoying a walk on the beach whilst the sun set on the way.

For dinner we went to our favorite restaurant The Jetty, which is a modern seafood restaurant. The food was delicious as always and they even surprised me with a little birthday desert and sing song.

Day 2

Day 2 was Valentines day as well as a full on Shopping day. After having breakfast at the hotel we headed to Churchill Square shopping Center and first bought a couple things in Topshop before heading to Urban Outfitters and going a bit crazy (which is normal for us). we also made purchases at Pull and Bear and Bershka. Lastly we grabbed a quick takeaway GBK and bubble tea which we ate/drank in the car on the journey home.

Till next time Brighton

Bath 17-19/4/17

We traveled to Bath, UK for two and a bit days this week and overall loved the town and the vibe! here’s what happened over the few days…

Monday

After the hour and half journey  and the usual car singalong, we checked into Queensberry hotel which was very cute and very welcoming, we then headed out to have brunch/early lunch at a lovely cafe type place called ‘The Loft’, the food was incredible and just what we needed. I had a goats cheese, pepper and cress melt and Jess had a cheese, tomato and pesto panini with a side salad of peas, beans, tarragon and other healthy veg.

We then headed down to the shops and had a massive splurge in Primark (which was part of the plan we promise!) and bought some nice spring/summer clothes. We also went to Topshop and bought a couple of lovely things too, I bought a cute playsuit which has a lovely green and pink tropical print, and Jess bought a ring set which have beautiful stones in, and a black and white patterned bikini.

We then walked back to our hotel room, chucked our shopping in our room and found a nice spot outside to take some photos,IMG_0538IMG_0528After the mini photo shoot we quickly changed outfits and headed out for dinner at a restaurant called The Porter’, the food was AMAZING and our waiter was lovely! Me and Jess shared two mains, One was Sea Bass with asparagus, aubergine caviar and a butter sauce and the other was crab, with pickled pear and some type of biscuits. For desert Jess had a Sticky Toffee pudding and I had a lemon meringue pie.

Tuesday

We had an early breakfast in the hotel, and then headed to the ‘Thermae Bath Spa’ in the town, which is a spa with pools which are natural hot spring water from bath, we got changed into bikinis and robes and headed to the top floor, which is a rooftop pool looking over sunny Bath. The pool was lovely and warm and occasionally the pool bubbled like a hot tub. We then had a quick stop in the cafe there and Me and Jess had a quick mocha and a nice read of a book/magazine. We then headed to the bottom floor to the inside pool which is the same water and temperature as the previous pool and had anther swim and read before leaving. The whole spa was very relaxing and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there! (they didn’t allow phones or photography in the spa so here’s some photos I found online)

We then spent a little more time in town, had a wagamamas for lunch and bought some macaroons as a sweet treat (I got chocolate, salted caramel and coffee and Jess got chocolate, salted caramel and raspberry). We then decided that we would go on a little trip to Prior Park, about 10/20 minutes because we’d heard they were beautiful an thought it would be a good photo opportunity!

We then chilled in our hotel room, got ready for the evening and headed to dinner at Hall and Wood house. We both had a fallafel and Halloumi Burger with red peppers, guac and humous – we approved 🙂

Wednesday

We  had breakfast at the hotel again – Toast, cereal, coffee and tea, packed our bags and headed home 😦

Thank you Bath! its been real
