I am currently in Malta for a little trip but on Sunday will fly back to Stirling. But I couldn’t miss my weekly blog post! And like I wrote, this week you got two blog posts and not just one!
So here is the second one of the week!
It is all about a Cut Crease Makeup Tutorial using Soph X Makeup Revolution’sEyeshadow and Highlighter Palette.
I love both products. The eyeshadowpalette has a variety of colour choices and you can create so many looks out of it! It is only £10! That is such a great price! The packaging is so cute too however, the open it, it is such a hassle!!
The shadows applies well, there is some fall out so if you prefer to not do your foundation before your eye makeup then do so! But I honestly don’t mind and you can brush off the fall out and just re apply some concealer. The shadows blendwell and are so pigmented. I used the shade fairylights which is a shimmer shade all over my lid, and I dampened my brush to up the effect of that shadow and it worked out great!
I also loved the highlighter palette that comes with a variety of highlight shades. They are so pigmented and you should definitely mix and match to brighten up that highlight!! The highlighter palette is £8. All in all I really loved using both palettes and think that they are worth the buy!!
Here is the makeup tutorial –

I hope you enjoyed the makeup look. I really enjoyed creating it. It was my first cut crease attempt, I hope to get better.
Today’s blog post is all about a Shimmery Makeup Look I created thanks to some products from Born Pretty Store.
Born Pretty Store is a website that sells a variety of products, from makeup to nail items and mobile accessories etc. I have made previous videos & blog posts about their website and you can check them out right here –
These retail for $2.59. I found that these brushes are a little small to apply any foundation or powder. I tried blending out my concealer which I liked how they blended it for me. And I also tried applying bronzer and highlight with them.
However, I didn’t get the finished effect I usually get with my other products. The highlight applied better than the bronzer but I think that these brushes look really cute on your vanity with their rhinestone packaging.
This retails for $3.99. I think these brushes are so cutelydecorated with that perfect unicorn print. You get a brush for your brows,eyeliner, 2 flat brushes, a crease brushand a pointed brushperfect for the inner corner.
I loved these brushes more than the other face brushes of before. I found that the brow brush and eyeliner one applied the products well. There is no proper blending brush in this set however the flatbrushes are great to work with. Overall I think you can get good use out of them and they are so cute too!
These retail for $2.99. I found that these lashes were so easy to work with. The packaging they came in was really practical too.
I love how these applied and that they had a natural effect to them. They lasted long and when I applied mascara on them so to blend my real lashes with them, they stayed on really well. These are my favourite eye lashes that I have tried from born pretty store for sure!
How are you all doing? Here is a Glasses makeup look. Lots of you may be starting school soon or have already started. And some of you wear glasses on daily basis or like me have to wear your glasses for computers/long distances/driving.
Here is a simple makeup look which will still make your eyes pop even though they are behind a pair of glasses. This is also in collaboration with Firmoo.
Firmoo is a website that sells a variety of both vision glasses and sun glasses.
If you would like your own prescription glasses you can order them off this website. You can either enter the details of your prescribed lenses or photocopy your prescription and then let Firmoo do the rest. I feel that this website is a better option from ordering a pair of sight glasses locally. I find that you save money and the glasses are still of good quality!
They ship fast and you get a pocket for free! I think it really is worth it. The customer care service is amazing, therefore if you require any help simply email them and they will reply immediately!!
I also bought two pairs for me mum and I used the Buy one and get one free offer so I only paid for one then!
Basically you can get the Buy one pair and get one pair for FREE from http://bit.ly/bogofirmooglasses By clicking on this link, you can get your very own coupon code and with this code you can get two pairs from Firmoo for the price of one.
Therefore, you are entitled to one pair of glasses for FREE! This includes the frame and standard lenses.
But these glasses that I am showing you in the video were kindly sent to me by Firmoo, so thank you so much Firmoo!!

Products mentioned for the Glasses Makeup Tutorial –
NYX Angel Veil Primer NYX HD Foundation – applied with my beauty blender Maybelline FIT ME concealer MUA Ultra Fine Loose Setting Powder RIMMEL Stay Matte Pressed Powder – Silky Beige – Applied with my REAL TECHNIQUES Powder Brush
Milani Stay Put Brow Colour – one of my new products – I love this brow product and the brush that came with it. It made filling my brows so easy and straightforward! Loved the finished look it left me with. Max Factor Natural Brow Gel
MUA 15 Shade Palette – Fire Vixen – one of my new products – I love this palette, I think the shade selection is perfect! The shadows are slightly powder-y but I don’t hate that about this palette. They blend ever so nicely and they are the same shade as what is represented in the palette. It is so cheap and affordable from MUA and you get a whole palette with 15 shades! Total bargain!! Shades used – Shade 3 – in my crease – applied with an EBAY Blending Brush Shade 13 – on my counter of my crease – applied with same brush Shade 8 – placed on my lid – Ebay Flat brush Shade 1 – inner corner and under my brow bone – ebay pointed brush Milani Eye Tech Extreme Liquid liner
L’Oreal miss Baby Roll Mega Volume Waterproof Mascara
MUA Bronze & Sculpt Contour Kit – applied with my Milani Powder Brush
MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter – peach Diamond applied with Ebay Highlighter brush – a new product and I loved it. It isn’t a very pigmented highlight even though when you swatch it on your hands it appears to be. But when applied to my cheek bone it doesn’t transfer that much. But I love the slight sheen that it gives me, it is just enough for me. It is a little chalky but it doesn’t appear like that on the skin, so don’t be alarmed that when you swatch it on your hands it will be appear to be so but it isn’t!
Lipsticks mentioned –
MUA Luxe Velvet Matte Lipsticks – Shade 4 & 12 – I love this formula of these lipsticks. The formula feels so nice on my lips, not drying at all. But I do NOT like the bullet these lipsticks come with. The application because of these bullets makes it so hard to do a perfect application of these lipsticks. But apart from that, I love these lipsticks. Even the packaging is pretty sleek.
MUA Velvet Matte Metallic Lip Lacquer – Perseus – I don’t usually like metallic lipsticks and don’t like buying any. But I thought I would give this a shot, and I really liked it. It isn’t patchy and not drying either. I love how it applied and it is a pretty metallic pink shade!
I used theMUA Velvet Matte Lipstick in shade number 4 for this tutorial.
