Get to know me!

I saw this on a couple of peoples blogs, and seen as you guys don't really know me that well, I thought I would give it a go!

1.Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
My hair is mainly straight but its beginning to get a few waves here and there.

2.What is your natural hair colour?
It used to be a very fair blonde colour when I was younger, but its now more of a light blonde/brown.

3.Do you die it yourself or go to a salon?
Well I dont dye my hair but if was going to then I would probably go to a salon, but if I was going to dip-dye my hair then, I would probably do it myself.

4.How often do you wash your hair?
Three times a week.

5.Do you wear the same style everyday or change it?
I usually have my hair straight but I sometimes do curl at the ends.

6.Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
I do it myself, but would treat myself occasionally.

7.How often do you change your nail polish?
I'm not allowed to wear nail polish for school, so at the moment its once a week. But when I'm off, I change it every two or three days.

8.Do you polish your toes in the winter too, or just summer?
I don't paint my toes much really, but yes I will paint them all year round.

Around 15/20 minutes but more like 30 minutes if its a special occasion.

10.What do you do first? Face or eyes?
Always face!

Not at the weekends!

17.How often do you wash your makeup brushes?
Once a month, because I only wear makeup at the weekends so they don't need washing too often.

Not that often really, probably about once a month.

New L'Oreal Matt and Messy | Review

Hi everyone, so as I was wandering around Boots I came across this beauty...
With L'Oreal being such a trusted brand and one I know I can rely on, I thought I would try their new sea-salt spray from their studio line and at a reasonable £3.56 I simply couldn't resist. I've been wanting to try a sea-salt spray for a while now but I've never really seen many in stores, so when this came out I thought it was the perfect chance to try one out. This claims ''shine free tousled look'' which when I tried it, it did seem to do. However I think I need more time to experiment with it and find a way which works best for me so I will update you on that later.

The bottle contains 150ml and it is in a rather cute round bottle, making it easier to hold however the bottle shape could annoy people and this could be tricky for packing into small bags.
The instructions say to spray onto damp or dry hair and ruffle with your fingers to give an instantly textured effect. And if you wanted tousled waves to define sections and twist you hair using your fingers.
It says it adds extra lift and definition without weighing down or making hair greasy.
For some reason I thought this would smell slightly salty but I was surprised by the fresh clean scent it leaves in your hair.
So far I am really enjoying this product will you be trying it too?

Or have you tried anything from the rest of their Matt and Messy range?

Thanks for stopping by!

October Favourites

Hi everyone, here are some things I have been loving this month!

Happy (late) Halloween!

Collection 2000 sheer loose powder (shade 1- Barely There)- £2.99 from Boots
I have really been enjoying loose powder recently, as I usually use pressed powder but I fancied a change, and decided to try this one. And I'm glad I did! It sets my makeup perfectly without it making me look cakey and its also great to use on its own as it has decent coverage. For £2.99 this is a BARGAIN and if you are looking for a loose powder, I recommend you try this one.
Collection 2000 Super Size Fat Lash Mascara (Shade 01- Ultra Black) £2.99 from Boots
It makes you lashes look thick and healthy and you dont need to apply hundreds of coats to build it up either! For only £2.99 its worth trying it out.
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer (Shade- Light 2) £4.19 from Boots
(sorry for the disgusting packaging) I use this concealer under my eyes to help brighten and conceal my dark circles. It is easy to blend into my skin without it looking cakey and has pretty good coverage and staying power too. Some people can be put off with drugstore concealers because they presume they'll be awful but this one definitely deserves a chance.
Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector (Shade-01 Rose Shimmer) mini size from Clarins Christmas gift set available at Boots.
This is so easy to wear and apply, you just literally squeeze the tube until the product oozes out and apply it to your lips. It looks very natural and makes your lips feel soft and lovely. It also smells of vanilla...delicious.
Benefit Highbeam (free from Glamour magazine) full size available at Boots.
I love highlighters and this is one of my favourites, its frosty pink colour is perfect for highlighting the tops of your cheekbones and can transform your look in seconds. When I run out of this baby I probably will buy the full size even though its a little pricey (£18.50!).
Revlon Colourstay eyeshadow quad (Shade 505 Decadent) £7.99 from Boots
This is the perfect quad for me, the colours are so pretty and go well together. If you were going on holiday and could only take a certain amount of makeup (eeeek) then I would take this as it has a perfect base, highlight, crease and blending colour. For £7.99 this is a bargain and I will so be buying this again.

So thats it for my October Favourites, sorry its a little late, but I've found it so hard to get good lighting to take decent pictures.
Thanks for stopping by!
