Messy Hair & Lolita II

Hey lovelies!

If you know me personally, then you'll be aware of the issue I suffer from every time that I wash this mane of mine...Hagrid hair. It's that dreaded look you get when you've just been out in the rain and the wind is really strong. I can continue to paint you a picture but I think we both know that it's not looking good.

This post is my way of embracing my somewhat "stylishly" messy hair and by pairing it with this gorgeous liquid lipstick by Kat Von D in the shade 'Lolita II', I was able to look more put together than usual! The moment I put this colour on my lips, I fell in love with both the shade and the consistency of it, as well as the fact that it lasted practically all day. I would definitely recommend purchasing a few of these liquid lipsticks to add to your makeup collection!

Let me know in the comment section down below what your favourite liquid lipsticks are and if you too suffer from the dreaded case of 'Hagrid Hair'...I'll welcome you to the club, no problem.


P.S. If you want super shiny hair that lasts for longer, pick up the John Frieda Luxurious Volume 7 Day Shampoo and Conditioner. I used them both the day before I took these photos and I must say, my hair looks incredibly smooth. Give them a try! (Not sponsored)

Peachy Keen

Hey lovelies!

Spring is here! I'm so happy that the weather is FINALLY brightening up - the sun is out and there's that fresh breeze in the air. I may be an Autumn baby but boy do I love the Spring and Summer months. I love the fact that everything just feels better, our moods included, and life gives you a break for a little bit.

This look shown right here was custom made by my sister, The Skinny Hot Choc, and she absolutely nailed it! The way that she chose to make my eye colour pop was so cool and I definitely bow down to her for her creative streak. 

I just want to say that I hope my cheesy grin makes at least one of you happy out there - I was feeling particularly jolly this day haha! I was going through all of the photos that I took and it's safe to say that a lot of them look like the ones I used in this post. Say cheeeeeeeeese!


P.S. For a full breakdown of the products she used on me, head on over to her blog or click here for a direct link to her post on this exact look!

Maybelline Master Camo Corrector - Review

Hey you beautiful people!

It has certainly been awhile since I last posted a review of a product but after seeing this colour correcting palette by Maybelline not so long ago, I thought I would give it a try.

My skin has been particularly unfavourable in the last couple of weeks and quite honestly it has not wanted to heal itself. I've been left with redness and uneven skin and I really don't like it, I mean who would? Thankfully though, in the last couple of days, I've left my skin to breathe and I'm slowly seeing some progress!

I've always found it relatively difficult to cover up my blemishes because when my skin is red, it's going to stay red...for as long as it wants (*rolling eyes emoji*). This, however, gave me the perfect opportunity to use the Maybelline Master Camo Corrector - Light.

I must say that it worked really well! The corrector shades, especially the green shade, covered up the majority of my redness and gave me an even base to then move onto the next stage - concealing any dark areas. Now, my under-eyes are not what they used to be. A combination of late nights working and just late nights in general have left me with dark circles. I can't help but giggle as I write this, I genuinely sound like my face has been through the wars - it's not that bad I promise hahaha! Anywho, these shades worked well but I still found myself reaching for my Maybelline Fit Me! Concealer in the shade 15 because the two included in the palette looked a little too dark for me.

The highlight shades, on the other hand, were really pretty but considering that I'm not a massive fan of piling on the highlighter, I chose to apply just a little bit. It sure gave me a nice glistening look on my browbones and on the tops of my cheeks. Perfect!

For your benefit, I've made sure to include a couple of pictures so that you can see how well this palette managed to conceal, correct and highlight my skin.


P.S. Let me know in the comments down below if you've also tried this product out. What did you think of it?
