Collective haul! (Forever 21, Primark , Mac & more)

Hey guys,

For a while now I've been getting bits & bobs from all different shops and I thought I'd show you what I have got.

Firstly I'll start of with Primark!

So first of all I have picked up this midi length bodycon dress, i absolutely love this! Dresses like this tend to be really flattering on me since I have long legs and since it was only £6 I had to get it! I wish there were more colours in this style of dress because I think it'll look really nice with some sandals or converse in the summer with a denim jacket.  

Next I saw this and I instantly fell in love with it. It's this beautiful play suit. Basically it's off the shoulder and then has a belt to tie you in at the waist and then it flows out on the bottem part.  I think this is so pretty and once again with some sandals in the summer time this will look so nice. & it was £10. 

Then of course I had to get pyjamas, I always get pyjamas when i go primark because there's some really nice ones and I saw these lion king ones. First of all I love Lion king and second of all I love the colours because there quite summery . The pyjama bottoms are really tight fitted btw so I would size up if you want them to be more airy ( if you know what I mean).

The next 2 items I got because I was going to the Dorchester with my school and I need some 'smart' causual clothes, so I wore these 2 items with a leather jacket and my converse.

This top is just a basic plain top but it's good to have because it goes with a lot of things, and I think it was £6 or £8 but I can't exactly remember because the tags are off it. 

Then these I love so much, they are basically the cross between trousers and leggings and I think they are really nice because you can dress them up or down. The only annoying thing is that I've never seen these type of trousers in a size 6 from primark so I had to get a size 8 which are a bit loose on the leg, I don't know why they don't do them in a 6 because that would be the perfect fit, nonetheless they still look nice on and they are only £11!.

Moving on to Forever 21...

Forever 21 is my favourite shop of all time, they have such nice clothes at a great price, if only I had more money I would have bought the whole shop... Trust me. 

First of all I got this gourgeous White a line skirt. I've been wanting one if these for the longest time but the ones in topshop and river island are £30 and I can justify spending that much on a skirt. However this one was only £13 and it fits me really well and I just love everything about! 

& then I just got myself a stripey white and navy blue crop top. I love tops like this because they go with anything and are perfect for summer time, although you can layer them in colder weather. This was only £6 and I think it will look great with the white skirt!

Then I popped into Mac and got myself a new lipstick..... I got velvet teddy which I've been wanting for ages but was always out of stock. I'm so glad I've finally got my hands on this, it's the perfect 'kylie Jenner nude'.

Moving onto Superdrug...

First up I needed a new eyebrow gel. The elf one is the best eyebrow gel but it's always sold out so I've settled for this for the time being and its the Rimmel brow this way, it's nothing special but it will do and it was around £4.

I have a 'thing' for cream blushes at the minute, like I loveee them so much because they add a dewy touch to the cheeks and look so pretty. The one I picked up is the Maybelline dream touch blush in the shade 'plum 07'.

Everyone is going crazy about this concealer so I just had to pick it up, it's the eraser eye concealer by Maybelline and it's so good! It's full coverage and lasts all day but the only downside is that there's only 2 colours to choose from and the 'light' shade is what I've got and it's not light enough because I like my concealer to highlight as well, but this doesn't do the job. I'll still get use out of this I'll just have to mix it with a lighter concealer. It was £7.99 if I remember rightly.

I have been wanting the sleek highlight palette in 'solstice' for ages so I went and bought it and Oh God it's beautiful... Literally it works so well and it's £10. 

Last of all I picked up the Barry M dazzle dusts.These are like pigments and they work so well, they are so pigmented and they look even better if you wet them. I actually created a look with the pink one which is in my last blog post which I'll leave the link to here:
They are only around £4 each which is insanely cheap and I'm defo going to be buying more of them.

I also needed a new pair of trainers so I went into JD and got Nike theas, they are so comfy and easy to wear and they are £90.

Thank you for reading this post, I hope you have enjoyed it, don't forget to comment and share! 

Love you all Xoxox

Makeup tutorial: pretty spring look

Hey guys!!!

So I'm going to be sharing with you a simple Spring look which is really pretty and I had so much fun creating!

So first of all let me take a selfie... No lets not. So first of all let me show you a pictureeee....

Products used on eyes 
- Mac skin base visage as a base ( ran out of eye primer oops :/ ) 

- Anastasia Beverly Hills self made palette  in the shade 'blossom' and I blended this all over the eye. I then took the shade 'Metallic plum' and I blended that into the outer corner, crease and the top and bottom lash like just to add some depth and definition.

- I then placed the Barry M dazzle dust in the shade '39' which is the star of the show! I basically packed it on with a flat brush. 

- Then I added some of the Maybelline lash sensational mascara.

Products used on face
- I used the Maybelline fit me concealer under the eyes to brighten them up and then the Rimmel stay matte powder just to set it into place.

Products used on lips   
- I used the Rimmel exaggerate liner in the shade ' East end snob' and I used the Mac modesty lipstick on top to top of the look.

... And that's how I created the look! 

Thank you so much for reading!!! I hope you enjoyed this and please feel free to comment any requested blog posts and I'll be sure to do them, a big haul shall be coming up soon because I've been doing a bit of shopping recently hehehe :).
