World cup fever!

So even though England are doing painfully badly in the world cup I still love it and completely support them and still believe we can win the world cup (cmonn guys if you dont think positive theres not point). I get incredibly into the world cup and try and watch all the england games. I got particularly excited for the first one. I wore an england t shirt and did my nails especially - and here are the pictures.

Hope you like my patriotic clothes and nails! I'm definitely watching the game tomorrow - I'm having a few of my friends round to watch them. Have you been watching them? also tomorrow it is finally my last exam!!!! Its german writing which is hard but still this time tomorrow i will be free and summer would have officially started! eeeeeeeep!!!

Sooo i had a little bit of money saved up so I put an order in at mac :) Its not often that i have money to spend on mac makeup because of the ridiculous prices so I am very excited about this. I only bought two items - the gaga viva glam lipstick and the mineralised skin finish natural in medium plus. They are both such good products!

First the msf. It gives such a good finish on my face and is the perfect shade for me. literally the shade could not have got closer to my skin tone! It gives a nice matte finish and i can use this all over my face in the place of foundation if i only want a light base or on top of foundation to provide really good coverage :) i apply it with my bare minerals flawless face brush. It stays on the whole night without priming or anything before - amazing!

Sorry for the lack of eyemakeup - i was getting ready to go in for an exam and just had to take a picture in my excitement because the finish was so amazing :)
The gaga lipstick - creamy long lasting and amazing. such a gorgeous subtle colour. beautiful :D
The packaging is AMAZING! im so in love with it!

Whats on your mac wishlist?

Quick outfit post.

Sooo i decided to do a really quick outfit post in the time between revising for my latin exam and exercising and big brother. I wore this outfit when i went to the fair a few weeks ago one friday night. It got quite cold even though the evening started off sunny. I wore really tight jeans (they are almost jeggings) from topshop and a tight crop top also from topshop with some nude sandals yet again from topshop :) i truly do love topshop...anyone tried out their makeup? if i hadnt gone into money saving mode i would buy a few things. Sorry for the bad quality of the photograph...all i have is my blackberry to take pictures on :/

Another 10 second look!

I've decided to make my 10 second looks abit of a feature because with all my exams recently i havent really been going out properly or anything and havent done many full faces of makeup. This look I did reallll quick when my dad suddenly announced we were going to pizza express. I had literally no time so all i did was put crystal by mac all over my lid and then do a liquid liner line and flick using my chanel eyeliner and did a kinda brown lip with an old brown lip colour and barry m lipgloss in toffee. I didnt even have time for mascara! S Also apologies for the ugly picture! I took it while i was in the car.

Sorry for the short post today...hope it helped you in some way :)

Hope your weekend was good! I am outraged at the world cup! completely! england should definitely have beaten usa dont you agree?!

Summer bbq makeup

So i decided to do a makeup look :) This is a really simple one and I wore it to a bbq gathering thing about a week ago. The weather was gorgeee and it was such a nice evening. Shared a couple of bottles of wine and some food with some of my best friends :) I kept the makeup quite simple but put a bit of definition into the eyes because it was an evening thing and i wanted to show a difference from my usual day makeup. I used mac's crystal eye shadow all over the lid then a grey and black from my sleek acid pallette in the outer corner. I then did a peachey cheek with nars' orgasm and light pink lips with barry m lipstick in 101 and some barry m gloss.

What do you think of nars orgasm blush? It has to be one of the most famous blushes of all time. I loveee it personally :)
For my hair i had it in plaits in the day when i went out to town then just came back and took out the plaits and it was nice and wavy.

Hope you liked this look. Its summery and relaxed yet still polished and makes it look like you made an effort. I hope these summer looks help you plan your makeup for all the summer events i'm sure you have coming up :)

hope youre all well lovelies!

Day to night outfit!

So i decided to do something a little different for this post. I took two basic items from my wardrobe - my high waisted denim shorts from miss selfridge and my vintage lace top and made them appropriate for both a casual day event and a more formal evening event :)

So this is the one for evening. Obviously its not a really formal event - just more formal than day wear. I wore this to pizza express with my dad and sister. I added black knee high, an old denim jacket and my military boots. I reallyyyy like the knee highs and boots look and may be wearing it in the festivals if the weather isnt that good!

And this is how I wore it for day. Very simple just added my military boots. I wore this to town and then to a bbq in the evening. Obviously it was very hot this day or I couldnt have got away with wearing so little!

Hope you like the look!
Also - check out mroe magazine this week for a free barry m dazzle dust. I picked my up today :) And in glamour theres a free benefit eye pencil! How crazy! I would have bought it but i already have two lined up ready...silly me and my spending.

Have a good weekend guys :) got any plans?

Top knot?

So the top knot hairstyle was all over the recent catwalks and I've seen loads of people wearing it in the day and night. I think they look quite nice and am really excited to try them at future events :) i'm thinking of pairing a tight top knot with heavy black eye makeup to make a really dramatic night look.
I am SO SORRY for these disgusting pictures of me. I have no makeup and my pyjamas on :| but i got the top knot perfect and had to take a picture.

This is one of the styles from the catwalks.

So what do you think of top knots? Good for summer? dramatic? good for night or day? ugly? too formal?
