everyday budget makeup

I thought it'd be interesting to talk about an everyday makeup look which can be used everyday! But by using drugstore products that are accessible for everyone!:') 

These are the products I have chosen:

1- Rimmel stay matte powder in Transparent 

2- NO7 eye lash curlers

3- Maybeline Master Precise liquid eyeliner

4-Rimel accelerator endless mascara

5- Benefit hoola bronzer

6-Rimmel match perfect foundation

7- Miss sporty lipstick- 202 Melody

8- NO7 Palette 

I find these two products together give a bold look to the eyes, but can be varies depending on how they're applied. These are such good value for money as the quality is very strong, I highly recommend both the mascara and eyeliner!

This lipstick is so so cheap, but the quality is so high! It's a really creamy finish, but also creates a small shine so it doesn't dry out the lips at all! I find this colour perfect for an everyday natural look, as it's a lip but better type of colour. But is extremely pigmented so the colour can very depending on how it's built up:')

This is the finish that the look created!

Hope you enjoyed this post, and it just goes to show that high end makeup isn't always necessary. Hope this was hopeful for some people!:')

about my ombre

I dip dyed my hair early 2012, when the trend was is. But I had a lot of my hair cut off, so I decided to go back brunette. But recently as my hair is a lot shorter I go the urge to go back, so that's exactly what I did and I don't regret it:')

The result:

To achieve this colour I left it on the ends of my hair for around 1 hour, to create and uneven blended finish I tried not to be too neat and ran my fingertips through varied strands of hair. The dye I used was Schwarzkopt color xxl, I think the shade was platinum.

Hope this was helpful for anyone reading! I love ombre it's great. But don't be decieved it takes a lot of tlc! I have tried to used less heat now on my hair as the ends are very delicate! And more conditioning treatments, but it's worth it!

I have a weakness for Yankee candles

I've always loved Yankee candles, can't really blame me aha?! But recently a store opened in my town, and well I just can't get enough! But I'm forever buying the small sample sizes so I can try a variety of scents at a reasonable price:') The sample ones I bought were £1.80
