For this video Lilian Tahmasian and I teamed up to bring you guys some party makeup inspiration perfect for New Year's Eve or any other events you might be going to during this party season. Funnily enough we ended up doing two very different looks so there's a light and dark look to choose from!

This week I had the absolute pleasure of collaborating with NikkieTutorials! We've known each other for years now and both have a lot of love for the weird and wonderful makeup looks so I'm pretty surprised we haven't worked together sooner! For our collab the theme was 'fantasy forest dwelling creatures' so I created a fairy and Nikkie created an elf. Fun stuff!

I'll start by saying I'm a huge Urban Decay fan, especially when it comes to their eyeshadows, so when I found out there would be a bunch of eyeshadow palettes coming out this year I was excited to say the least. I have a few palettes to review but today I'll be sharing my thoughts on the Vice 3 palette!

Today I've teamed up with River Island to create some makeup looks to go along with some outfits! Since we're coming up to party season I picked out a few dresses from their partywear section and decided to go from quite a casual daytime look to a glamorous evening look, building up the makeup intensity as I went. I'm hoping that this way there's going to be a bit of something for everyone! It's like a haul, four makeup tutorials and a giveaway all in one tasty little video.
November was all about the rusty eyeshadows and wine coloured lipsticks for me. I don't think I've uploaded a photo where I haven't been sporting a bold lip this entire month!

I've been looking into these magical spinning skin cleaning devices recently and after years of declining offers to try out similar devices, I decided to take the plunge and say 'yes!' to the Vitagoods Face & Body Cleansing Brush. Skin care isn't something I've really bothered with until recently (after noticing things that weren't there before!) so this is definitely new territory for me.

The other week Shien Cosmetics got in touch to ask if I wanted to try out some of their lipsticks. I was so blown away by the presentation of the website and the beautiful swatches and the alluring and sensual feel of the brand that I replied immediately and spent the next week waiting eagerly at the door for the postman!

Today's video is an exciting one! My friend Lena and I finally put our heads together and collaborated. I did a makeup look inspired by one of Lena's watercolour paintings and she painted one of my photos in her usual beautiful style.

During October I spent most of my time in a creative rut (as most of you well know - ahem, lack of content), so my makeup was stripped right down to the bare minimum because in all honesty, I just couldn't be bothered. All about the honesty here!

This month seems to have turned into a magical month of giveaways! Huzzah huzzah! Today I have a haul from one of my favourite online stores to work with, OASAP, and I had the opportunity to pick out some items for a giveaway too.

I haven't done a foundation review before, mainly because I haven't changed my foundation for the past 5 years (not even an exaggeration), so you should know that this one is something special!

We all know I love myself a cheeky new Sigma collection so when my friend at Sigma got in touch and asked if I wanted to do a giveaway along with my usual review & demo of their new collection, of course I said yes! Sigma is one of my favourite brands and I think you'll love them too. (If you don't already!)

For this video I wanted to do a newly 'Infected' zombie look. My original plan was to go with a really ill looking makeup and a zombie bite to suggest that the person had been bitten and was slowly turning into a zombie. Then I got carried away with the boils and the green and purple colour palette and I decided to ditch the bite completely because the boils were definitely enough!

Well, well, well... Look what we have here! I'm sure if you watch YouTube videos and you haven't been living under a rock for the past couple of years then you're probably already subscribed to the delight that is Zoella. A couple of weeks ago she launched her very own range of pamper products and the beauty blogging world erupted with pride and joy. It's always such a nice thing to see internet folk creating things out there in the real world! It's also lovely to see how supportive other bloggers are too.

Here's another Clothing Haul video for you! The cold weather is very quickly creeping up on us here in rainy old England so this time I picked out some transitional pieces which I should be able to wear into the colder months.

A couple of weeks ago, I ordered some lipsticks from the Beauty B Cosmetics site and when they arrived I was surprised to see these two lil guys in my package too! Pleasantly surprised might I add. Who doesn't love unexpected free stuff?

I get lots of questions about the brushes I use and how to use them so I hope this video answers some of those questions! I've been wanting to do something like this for ages because I think this kind of video would have really helped me when I started out with makeup and didn't know what brushes to use and where. And if you're not new to makeup, then hopefully you find some brushes you like the look of and fancy trying out!

Ever since I bought and fell in love with Space Cake at IMATS I've wanted to try out more Melt Cosmetics lipsticks. So in order to expand my collection and intensify my love, recently I picked up two other shades and yet again, I'm blown away by the colours and the quality.

After re-discovering MAC's Humid eyeshadow, a dark frosty green colour, while organising my new makeup storage system, I quickly fell back in love with it and just had to feature it in a look. I also decided to add a few black rhinestones because I'm all about adding unusual little details into my looks at the moment!

So yesterday I announced that I'd be starting a new series today called 'He to She' where I turn male characters into my vision of their female version by imagining myself as the character and deciding how I would do my hair, makeup and costume if I was in their shoes. I have an entire introduction video to the series I hope you'll watch before this one so you understand the concept fully. But then, here's my first installment!

Every now and then I get sent care packages by companies or I treat myself to a bunch of products but I never really know if I should haul them on my channel, or on my blog, or whether I should review each product separately or whether I should review them all together... The struggle is real. SO. Today I'm trying the haul on the blog thing. I was sent a care package by MAC agessss ago and I still haven't shown my appreciation for it. So here we go!

So I have to admit, I've been a little off my Sigma game recently. I'm usually straight on it with the reviews and videos every time they release something new but lately I've been so busy and I've only just had a chance to try these babies out!

I was recently contacted by 1:Face Watch asking if I wanted to help bring attention to their site and help change the world, so of course I said yes! The idea is, you buy a watch and the money goes towards helping different charities and their causes. So for example, the money from one Cancer watch goes to the American Cancer Society and pays for support for 8 patients. The money from one AIDS watch goes to the Keep A Child Alive charity and pays for treatment for 8 patients... Please keep on reading if you want to know more about each watch and how you can get involved!

I have some of my new favourite lip products to show you today! I've always been a matte lipstick kind of gal but recently I've been leaning towards a glossy lip more often than not. Weird, huh?

A couple of weeks ago I asked on Facebook for some questions for a Q&A video and oh man, I got plenty! I tried to answer as many as I could, but this video was cut down from 2 HOURS of footage so obviously I had to edit a lot out! If you want to be involved in the next one, come and follow me on Facebook or Twitter as I'll most likely ask on one or the other. :)

I didn't really wear any makeup this month until I went to IMATS, (so I don't even know it this counts for June!) but since then I've been playing around with the new products and lashes I picked up and I've found myself a new staple look!
Sunday, July 06, 2014
As you know, last weekend I went to IMATS and had such a great time! I decided to vlog the event this year instead of just blogging about it and I'm so glad I did. Now I have a cute little video to remind me of the fun times I had and all the lovely people I met. Vlogging is pretty new to me but something I'd like to do more of!
Friday, July 04, 2014
Last weekend I went to IMATS and had such an amazing time! I got to meet so many of you guys and it really hit home how many people watch my videos and support me. It's crazy. Every stall I went to there was another person to meet and take photos with and it was honestly so heartwarming. You were all so sweet and full of ideas and creativity and it was lovely to see!

Well, well, well... Look who bought some more lip products she doesn't need! Every time I go to Superdrug I end up buying something new and this time it was a selection of the new Barry M Loud Mouth Extreme Lip Colours.

Today's look kind of came out of nowhere. I was feeling super uninspired so I forced myself to think outside the box and create something I wouldn't usually wear and I ended up creating one of my favourite looks I've done for a long time! The first time I did this look was for a comedy gig I went to the other week, but I decided to recreate and film it because I knew some you guys would love it too.

Hello hello! Here's my 'mostly summery but not really' clothing haul. I've had most of these items for a while so this is a haul, mini-reviews and try-ons all neatly packaged into one lil video. Enjoy!

Something you might not know about me is I am obsessed with nails. I love me some pretty nails but I also really struggle to keep them that way for more than five minutes. By the time I get round to thinking, 'Oh! I should blog about these!', they're already chipped and ready for the next paint job. So from now on I'm going to make an effort to take some photos and share them with you before their inevitable demise.

I had no idea this palette was even in production, let alone that I'd be getting one. So when this little guy arrived in the mail last week I was excited to say the least. I already have the first Revealed palette and I think it's a palette everyone should own, so it's not surprising that I'm head over heels for this palette too.

This month I've been all about that smokey liner. Again... I went through such a phase of not wearing liner at all and now I can't get enough of it. I've finally figured out how to do the perfect wing, whether it be smokey or not, and I'm making the most of it!

Recently I was lucky enough to be able to try out ColourPop's new Super Shock Shadows. Lucky, not just because they're awesome products, but because they only ship to the US and I shouldn't really be able to get my hands on these, mehehe. So, US readers... This one's for you! (Sorry everyone else. Sadface. They are working on international shipping though so I'll keep you posted!)

I finally sat down and filmed the TMI Tag! Woohoo! Although this kind of video makes me the most nervous to upload, I love doing them because I have some of the best conversations with people in the comments. Expect more talky-type videos coming your way soon!

Now I know it's weird... But I have another colourful look for you today! Muhaha. I'm really enjoying this palette at the moment so I figured I'd film a bunch of looks with it while the passion is there. I have a couple more coming up over the next few weeks. Another wearable look and something a bit more fun!

This month's most worn makeup look was actually a pretty simple one. During the warmer months I like to wear... not less makeup per say, but more 'natural' looking makeup. So for example, less on the eyes so the creasing on the lids due to the heat is less noticeable etc.
