This weekend, I went to my first gay pride event and I absolutely loved it. The parade was incredibly fun and the people I met were just as amazing. I loved being around people who are also a part of the LGBTQ+ community as well as people who are just as accepting and supportive of the LGBTQ+ community.My outfit and makeup were very simple. I chose a simple makeup look (with a lot of glitter!!) and wore a white bodysuit from boohoo with rainbow stripes on the chest with primark mom jeans and black Dr. Martens.If anyone has any post ideas that they’d like me to do, whether it be more make-up/ootd posts etc or more specific posts that you’d like me to do please leave a comment.

Summer Style | OOTD

I went on holiday last week which gave me an opportunity to wear a few new outfits that I either wouldn’t have done at home or have grown to love while being away. This particular outfit was new to me as I had only bought the playsuit because I was going on holiday. This was my favourite outfit I wore in the whole week and I absolutely adore it. I am incredibly pleased at how much I adore this playsuit especially as it was only £10 from primark (what an absolute steal!!). I bought the choker from new look a few months ago for around £6/7 and I bought the sunglasses while on holiday for 5 euros. I styled this with a pair of white Nike trainers as I had to do a lot of walking, however this look could be easily styled with a pair of heels. If I were to wear this in England where the weather is considerably cooler, I would style this with my top shop denim jacket (around £50) and probably a pair of black heels. 

My Everyday Nude Make-Up Look

I honestly love this look so much. Not only does it look good, but it is also simple to do and uses mostly drugstore products. This look uses matte and shimmer nude shadows on the eyes and pairs it with a matte darker nude shade on the lips.  This make-up look works well with glasses and without as it is quite dark, similar to the frames of glasses. In this blog post I will mainly be focusing on my eye and lip makeup, however, I will leave a list of the products that I used on my skin and face at the end of this post along with brief descriptions and opinions on them.

First, I used a Mac 217 brush to apply the three lightest matte brown shades from Revolution’s “I heart chocolate” palette into the crease of my eye, going from lightest to darkest and using less shadow as I go on. This gives definition to the eye and compliments my lips. Next, I used the the three shimmer shades on the left of the bottom row in the same pallette on the lid of my eye; going from lightest to darkest as I move from the inner to the outer corner of my eye. I did this by using a flat brush from the “bh cosmetics” brush collection. I then just curled my eyelashes and used the Maybelline Lash Sensational Lash Multiplying Waterproof Mascara in black to lengthen and darken my lashes. I used The Balm’s Mary Lou Manizer to highlight the inner corners of my eye as well as under my eyebrows. For my eyebrows, I used the middle shade out of the Collection Eyebrow Kit in Blonde to fill in my eyebrows before using the Clear Brow Mascara that comes with that same eyebrow kit to fix my brows into place.

For the lips, I used a brown/nude Rimmel lip liner to line my lips and colour them in. I then used the Maybelline “Super Stay 24hr Color” liquid lipstick to give my lips colour. I really like this liquid lipstick as it is very matte and lives up to its name as it does stay on the lips all day. The only downside about this lipstick is that it does dry the lips A LOT, however, it does come with a balm to hydrate the lips again and as long as you keep this on you all day and apply it when your lips feel dry then you will love this lipstick.

The products I used on my skin were:
– Nivea Men Post Shave Balm as a primer. I’m sure you’ve heard about this but if you haven’t this works as such an amazing primer and is so cheap.
– Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Concealer in the lightest shade.
– Natural Collection Green Concealer
– L’oreal Infallible 24hr Foundation in the shade Porcelain. I love this foundation as it has really good coverage and is actually pale enough to match my skin tone! I find it really difficult to find foundations that are pale enough for me and actually do the job they’re supposed to do but this one does so I would recommended this to anyone who is extremely pale like me.
– Sleek Contour Kit in the lightest shade to contour my face. I really like the contour part of this kit but I do not like the highlighter at all.
– The Balm’s Mary Lou Manizer Highlighter. I LOVE this highlighter.
– Soap & Glory One Heck Of A Blot Powder.
– Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

Prom

I have to admit, I wasn’t that into the whole idea of prom and wasn’t extremely looking forward to it. However, once I had decided on my dress, which i only did a few days before, I started to get more excited.

My friends and I all got ready together which made us even more excited for the evening, however, we probably spent more time talking than actually getting ready. We took loads of photos in my friend’s garden before heading off. The whole evening was absolutely incredible and was such an amazing way to start the summer. The only bad part about the evening was the rubbish buffet!

I had such an amazing evening with most of the people I have spent the last five years with and am so grateful for the people who have made these past five years special (most of these people are in the picture above). We all shared a lot of laughs and hugs throughout the evening as well as some bad dance moves and I am so excited to have an amazing summer with them.

My First Post

Hiyaa :)) This is my first post on this blog where I will be posting about anything and everything that I love or am interested in. I will also be documenting what is happening in my daily life as well as what I wear and probably my views on certain subjects.

I love music, art, fashion and make up a lot so you will probably see me talk about those things a lot, along with my day-to-day antics and anything else that I wish to express here.

Any photos that I post on this blog will be my own unless stated otherwise.
