great news!

I have a job...
I start tomorrow, so bare with me for a bit until I know my new rota, then I can carry on as usual.
I am so excited, you can't even imagine.

Quick Make Up Routines?

 MUA primer, Benefit High Beam, Collection 2000 Illuminating Touch Light Diffusing Concealer.
Collection 2000 Colour Lash in Clear, Volume Million Lashes for Hazel Eyes Mascara.

You know when you gotta be quick? Or, you those days in the mornings/afternoons and you need to go out for whatever reason even though you reaallyyyy do not want to and then... 

You look at your face and think 'holy fuck, I must cover this up,' - for whatever reason, we've all been there, right? A spot, blemish, something that makes our morning routine a little bit more hassle, and let's face it, could potentially put us in a bad mood for the rest of the day...

My answer, for myself, of course, is...

Primer. Tighten my pores, even my skin tone please! 
Concealer. Blemish? Gone. Spots? Nearly gone, but it will do. Dark circles? Gone.
Highlighter. Cheeks. Rosy tint? Perfect. Glowing? Hell yes.
Brow/Lash correctors. Tidy brows. Sorted.
Mascara. Open up them peepers. Lush.

Then of course, depending my mood, lip balm, lip stick or lip gloss. Usually balm or the schtick. 

What's your 'shit I gotta get a move on' routine?

Skincare Routine

Recently I have been experimenting with some new skincare products. 
Up until about two weeks ago I was using a variety of face washes... depending on what kind of deal they were on VS how much product there was VS if I liked and trusted the brand already...

Necklace Storage

Happy Monday Lovelies!

Just a quick photo to show a sneak peak at my 'make up station' - I bought a pack of four self adhesive hooks from Morrisons (only 99p!) and stuck them in a reasonably neat row... 

And voila, necklace storage!

I don't like shoving my necklaces in a box, because they always get tangled and I hate tangles so much - with ear phone/head phone wires but especially metal jewelry which never wants to get untangled - it just never seems to end!

These hooks come in a pack of four, in a chrome effect or white, obviously they are only plastic and self adhesive - so they aren't meant to carry heavy items - but a necklace or two won't hurt.

Any storage ideas that have organised your 'special' area?

Top Five Spring Nail Colours

 Left to right; 17 Lasting Fix 'Glisten', No7 Stay Perfect 'Tangy', All About Nails 'Caribbean Coconut', Barry M 'Blueberry', MUA 'Shade 5'.

When it comes spring colours, I'm all for the pretty pastels and such like - but I usually like to go for a punch more colour like No7's 'Tangy' or Barry M's 'Blueberry,' so that when spring leads into summer - I am all set with my colours.

That being said, I like to keep the brighter colours on my toes - while the milder colours like MUA 'shade 5' and All About Nails 'Caribbean Coconut,' are usually on my nails - I find them more adaptable for what I'm wearing, and usually I can layer some glitter polish on top of the peachy colour when I want to add a bit of sparkle. 

And for special occasions I bring out the 17 Lasting Fix in 'Glisten,' - It has two tones, pink and coral with a gold shimmer. Perfect for a night out. Subtle and pretty, with glitter.

What are your favourite nail spring colours?

Have a great weekend!
