Midnight Queen

Glitter. Lots and lots of glitter. Everything I've bought recently has glitter in and I can't explain why, because I hate the stuff! It's all over my house and beauty station and oh my goodness. Hahaha.
This look was fun and surprisingly not that difficult. It was such a shame I filmed it in the middle of the night and had to just wash it off afterwards.
Oh! And a little announcement: from now on I should be uploading two videos a week!

Sigma Resort Palette Review & Tutorial

Let me tell you about something I'm loving right now. The Sigma Resort Palette. Oh my goodness.
I'm no stranger to Sigma, I've been buying my brushes from them for the past five years, but I've never tried their makeup so I wasn't sure what to expect, but I am so impressed. 

Absolutely gorgeous packaging

Tim Burton Inspired Character Makeup

I had so much fun creating this look! As I mention in the video, I decided to create my own character in the style of Tim Burton. I don't really have much to say about it. It was a really quick and easy look to do once the eyebrows were done. I decided not to involve the covering of the eyebrows in the tutorial as there are a million of them already on YouTube, and it literally took longer than the actual look itself.
If you want more Tim Burton I also did Edward Scissorhands and the Red Queen way back when I started my YouTube channel!
(Also, if I had to name her, I think she'd be called Lollipop. Mehe.)

February Favourites


Once again I didn't get round to filming a monthly favourites video. And I know this is kind of late, but I did get some awesome things this month that I wanted to share. So grab yourself a coffee, it’s going to be a long one.

Each month I get to choose a few items from ROMWE, which is awesome because it enables me to do the style videos I want to do without making me dirt poor. However, because they only have a certain amount of each item in stock, they go out of stock very quickly before I even have a chance to share them with you. This month a lot of my favourite things came from them. And you guessed it; a lot of them are already out of stock. But I still feel like it’s worth sharing them with you, as you can get a feel for the awesome things that ROMWE sell. And I’m not just saying that because they send me stuff. There is a lot of shit on there too. There’s a nice balance.

My first favourite is this pair of boots. Quite obviously a rip off of the Dr. Martens style, but I’m not a brand or label snob, so I couldn't care less. Since I've never ordered footwear from ROMWE before, I didn't know what to expect. But I was very impressed with them. I've literally worn them every time I've left the house this month. The sole is extremely chunky and feels really substantial. This for me is great. I walk heavily on my heel, so the heel wears in a really funny way, so the thicker the sole, the longer the shoes last. The insole is nice and spongy, and they also came with a fluffy insole, which I think I’ll definitely use when winter rolls around, for warmth rather than comfort.

3 Cosy Outfits

Why is it still so cold? Sadface.
Today I put together three cosy outfits basically because I wanted to share these awesome jumpers with you. Or are they sweaters? I don't know. I'm northern English, almost every word in my vocabulary is wrong, hahaha.
I hope you enjoy the video. If not for the outfits, for the guest appearance from my cat, 'Bear'!

Hello everyone!
Today I found out that I'm one of forty girls in the line up for... Best YouYube Makeup Artist, I guess?!
It would be awesome if you could vote for me. (As many times as you'd like!) It seems kind of impossible since half of the girls there are actual goddesses. But somehow I'm in 20th place, as of right now. So let's see how far we can get!
Your support means the world to me. So thank you to anyone who has voted already.

Blindfolded Makeup Challenge

I wanted to film something different and fun this week. I've seen the Blindfolded Makeup Challenge going around on YouTube for some time now and I thought it would be the perfect video to film with the WOTO boys!
I gave them a brief insight into what we'd be filming before the day, and by brief I mean, 'you're going to be doing my makeup'. Little did they know they'd be doing it blindfolded. Muhaha!
I'm hoping to collaborate with a lot more people this year, whether it be silly videos like this or just normal makeovers. I think it will be a nice way to bring more personality into my channel and a great way to let you meet some of my friends.
Since this isn't a tutorial of any kind I'm going to be releasing another video in the next few days for those of you who want a beauty fix. But I hope you enjoyed watching it!
