My makeup collection!

Now i love love love looking at people's makeup collections so I decided to post a picture of mine. As you can see it's not as big as all of the ones you see on like youtube and stuff but I do not have a job and completely rely on my pocket money and presents to buy my makeup. I have no good storage either! It's all laid out over my dressing table. It is all ordered though :) here it is:

From left to right:
All my face products - my foundations, bronzers, blushes, face palette, concealers and primers :)
My pigments from pure luxe and barry m
My eyeshadow pallete and mac eyeshadows and bourjois smokey eyes set
My lipsticks :) barry m and mac
My lancome lipgloss
a couple of cheap lip palettes
my pencils - urban decay, benefit, mac, barry m
my lipglosses - rimmel, barry m, benefit etc
in the mug are my liquid liners :) - glitters from urban decay and collection 2000 and my black liquid liner from chanel.
My mascaras
2 face palettes from benefit
and my lovely brushes :) mostly mac

btw i'm not trying to brag or anything obviously...i mean theres not that much! This is my love and i am SO protective over it - when all my friends come round they know that my makeup tables completely off limits, its funny XD

anyway just though i'd post that because one of my favourite things is looking at people makeup collections!

hope youre all well and hope to hear from you soon :)

Lets do a review :) Rimmel london fake tan

So i have the palest skin tone ever! Genuinelly i am so pale. Don't know my mac foundation colour but with maybelline i'm cameo and rimmel i'm ivory and yeah...very very pale. So in the summer I use lots of fake tan. I have tried many a fake tan in my time and the one I'm loving at the moment is Rimmel London's sunshimmer instant tan makeup for face and body.
Sorry about the picture from the camera wasnt around and it looks exactly the same anyway.

This isn't a gradual build up but an instant tan (name kinda gives it away ;)) I use this whenever i'm going out and have some of my skin on show. It looks really dark when it first comes out of the tube but is actually really sheer and the colour is buildable and looks relatively natural. It can be used anywhere on your body and face and for me it has never gone streaky at all. It has a really good transfer resist. I have never seen it on my clothes or surfaces however I do sometimes notice that my tan has faded a bit by the end of the night. It does have a distinctive smell but I wouldn't say a bad one and definitely more like sun cream rather than the typical fake tan smell. The smell is easily covered up by perfume aswell :) It feels nice on the skin and sinks straight in to give a literally instant tan. However after the next half an hour or so I do notice it getting darker. It is so so cheap at just £3.99 in boots and it comes in 6 different colours for all different skin tones.

I absolutely strongly recommend this product because it gives a natural looking healthy tan without any of the tell tail fake tan signs :)

Hope you are all well. Have you tried any other fake tans? I've tried quite a few and have the occasional mystic spray tan for a party aswell!

its half term noww :D:D how exciting. Anyone have an plans for this week?

ohhh 2nd post of the day!

So to make up for my lack of posting I've decided to do two posts in the space of about five minutes :)
This one is more of a discussion point. Its not makeup related but I really want to hear lots of views.
Losing your virginity?
Been a topic that I've had to think about a lot recently.
I know very personal thing but I really want to hear people views, experiences and everything. Really need some people to talk to!
Literally any small comment or advice or anything I would be so grateful to hear from you.
Thankyou so much guys :)

Hi guysss!

I am so so so so so so sorry! Its been aaaaaaaages! I'm my gcses at the moment and have literally had no time at all to do any posts. I was thinking of giving up my blog completely but then saw a comment from surinsays - thankyou so much babe :) inspired me to keep going.
Anyway the post for today is the makeup I used for my last day, We all decided to do crazy amounts of makeup to school just because we're not usually allowed any!
I did a black smokey look on my eyes using bourjois smokey eyes set (the black one) with some mac black tied eyeshadow on top then some chanel liquid liner and lots of mascara. I used a LOT of bronzer and some bright pink lipstick - barry m number 145.
It seemed alot in the day but was really fun and looked quite good in all the pictures. Anyone else doing exams at the moment? Arent they awful! I'm stressed constantly ahhhh!
Hope youre all doing well :)
Would love to hear from you in the comment
