Autumnal Smoky Eye with Barry M Natural Glow Palette 2

Hello everyone!
Today I messed around a bit with some of my more recent palette acquisitions, which includes Barry M's Natural Glow Palette 2 (basically a Naked dupe). For general face stuff, I used Garnier's BB cream in light and a bit of Benefit's Rockateur blusher (which I have in the nicest palette, stay tuned for a post on that soon!). As I primer I used Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Original, and as a concealer for under my eyes I used Clinique's airbrush concealer in 01 Fair. These two products are definitely top on my would recommend list, I use them nearly every single day, and they definitely do the job so well.
Now, for the eyeshadow application I use Real Techniques brushes from their Eye set, using the base brush and the deluxe crease brush.

For the base of this look, I used the third colour from the left, a sort of dark pink, nearly purple colour. I put this all over my lid, and I really like the coverage of this palette, as all the colours that I have used so far have been nearly exact to how they look in the palette. For the second shade, I used the fifth shade from the left, and just blended that in, which created such a lovely plum colour that I would never normally wear but this was too lovely not to try it out.
To finish it off I used some Rimmel Glam Eyes mascara, used my Urban Decay Naked Basics palette for my brows and used Soap & Glory's Sexy Motherpucker gloss stick in Rapunzel (these are kind of like Clinique's chubby sticks, super cool).
This is such a good palette, and it's really good value for money. That primer that comes with it isn't excellent, and it comes with those annoying sponge applicators, but use this with a good brush and a high standard primer and the colours look beautiful. The mixture between matte and shimmery is also good, and even with the shimmers they aren't too overpowering. Definitely worth investing in!
 Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed the post!

Friday Catch Up #1

Mum and I found the Moomin shop in Covent Garden!

Hello again! I thought I'd post a few photos of my last few weeks, as a little summary of what I've been up to! Obviously these photos aren't completely representative... The majority of the photos on my phone are either photos of worksheets or rocks, and I wish I was joking. I've honestly been so busy, I've been auditioning for shows left right and centre (so far no luck lul) and hopefully I might be hearing about a radio show soon! I keep meaning to actually make more posts about outfits and exciting things but I can never find time to take a photo of myself/never feel comfortable! Hopefully I'll have time soon!
Also I'm hopfully making this Friday post a regular thing, so hopefully I'll have another post like this for you next week! Thanks for reading!

London Life Update

Okay so I've now been living in London for just over 3 weeks, and I'm just finished my second week of my university course!
This has perhaps been the most busiest month of my entire life, I've met so many new people (& forgotten so many names!) and learnt so much stuff about living on my own... and also the stuff from my university course obviously!! Although some of it is ridiculously hard, and when I mean some, I basically just mean chemistry, the bane of my life.
I've never really been a massive chef before, normally just the odd bake, so having to fend for myself in the kitchen has actually been surprisingly enjoyable. I have even ventured so far as making ratatouille, however by the time I made it I was too ill to eat it, and Luke had to finish it :( luckily my mum has been visiting me this weekend so I've had more substantial meals then my normal pasta and sauce late night cba to cook diet as of late! Although I have splurged on a recipe book so hopefully I will soon be a moderate cook!

This is a picture of me in my room on the very first day I moved in, I tried to make my room as colourful as possible! Currently it is a bit of a state though so hopefully I'll manage to keep it a bit tidier! More London updates soon hopefully x
