Born Pretty Store | Eyeshadow Palette

Hey, it feels like such a long time ago since i've sat here and written a blog post. Today is about my new fave eyeshadows from Born Pretty Store. I'm sure a lot of bloggers have heard of them before, they have A LOT of makeup on their website to choose from.

This is their 15 Colour Eyeshadow Palette  and I love it. The colours are so pretty and really wearable too, especially for this time of year. 

There are 11 shimmers & 4 matte shades. The colours are very intense even without using a primer  and are very blend able. I've heard from a few people that they've found them hard to apply using eye brushes, but I've found them to apply really well :) 

Top Row.

Middle Row.  (matte brown shades aren't too good though)

Last Row.

As you can see the colours are very pigmented, the only ones I don't like too much are the matte brown shades, they don't really show up at all compared to the others. They also last a long time on me and don't smudge or fall down when I'm wearing them.

I really recommend this palette, it's cheap, pretty and has some really nice colours in it :)

My Makeup Stash | Blush, Highlighter & Bronzer

Hey :) It's been a while since I posted I've just noticed :/ But anyway I'm carrying on with my 'makeup stash' posts today as promised. Today it's all about the blusher, bronzer and highlighters. I've only included my favourites today for obvious reasons. 

- Makeup Revolution Blusher Palette 'Hot Spice' - I picked this one up a while ago now and I love the colours it comes with. There really easy to wear and so pigmented :D I really like this palette as you have pretty much everything you need in it, it also comes with a highlighting shade too. It's also very affordable as it's around £6 :)

- Seventeen Instant Glow Shimmer Brick - This has been a fave of mine for a long time now, I don't really like to use the bronzer end of this product but the highlighter is gorgeous on the top of the cheek bones or brow bone. I do wear the bronzer if I have a bit of a tan but it can sometimes look a little fake? mm.

- Sleek Blusher 'Rose Gold' - This blusher was a present from my sister last christmas because she knew I wanted it for ages and I absolutely love it. It's such a pretty colour and has tiny gold specs which are noticeable on your cheeks when the sun hits them :) It's also really cheap, sleek are one of my fave makeup brands at the mo and they also do really nice eyeshadows too :)

- Makeup Revolution Hearts -  (in the top corner there haha) I also love this one, but sometimes I find it harder to wear, it states it's a blusher but I see it as more of a highlight than a blush? :/ But if I use it as a highlighter it's way too pinky, does anyone know what I mean by this? Nevertheless it's really pretty and its very inexpensive...

- Seventeen Contour Kit - This is one you've probably seen me mention as I reviewed it a few months ago :) I love this! It's the best bronzer I've ever bought, it looks natural like you've just caught the sun on holiday, not too orangey at all which you do find in bronzers a lot! :)

Hope you enjoyed this and let me know some of your favourites in the comments so I can have a look  at them :)..

Natural Makeup & Skincare Chat.

Hey :) Today i'm going to share with you my favourite skin care products, tips & some of my fave makeup products to create a natural makeup look ;) First of all I'm going to say that I'm very lucky with my skin but that doesn't go to say I don't look after it or treat it any differently. And for any younger readers out there don't feel like you MUST wear makeup everyday. I think talking about makeup products is great but we should also focus on cleansing your skin because at the end of the day you are only born with one face and we should look after it the best we can.


I find myself mix & matching my skin care products all the time, but I will say sticking to one brand can help a lot when it comes to repurchasing them ;) Some I recommend are; Lush, Body Shop, Nspa, Simple, Clean & Clear, Glossier (more of a luxury brand), Nivea



I think it's very easy to forget this step, but washing your makeup brushes is very important. The brushes hold bacteria from your face, hands, products and anything else (eww :/ ). I would say wash them once a week if you use them regularly, if not every 2 weeks.. depending on how much you use them your'll start to learn when to wash them.
I like to use shampoo to wash my brushes. I put a small drop in my hand, add water and just swirl them in my hand and it works really well.


This is something i've always done because to be honest I can't think of anything worse. There's no where for your makeup to go when your sleeping than into your pores (or your pillow) which brings you more spots.


Using a toner is something i've also done for a long time too. I remember at sleepovers my friends would say 'what are you doing' but it just helps to take the remains of your makeup off that you missed without realizing because it does happen.


I can't explain to you how much drinking water helps your skin! If you've never tried drinking more water than usual please give it a go, I promise your skin will thank you for it when you wake up the next day :)


Whether this means you going up to boots/superdrug and experimenting with different skincare brands and choosing some out that you it! My favourite skincare brands are: Clean & Clear | NSPA | Simple.
I think Simple Skincare has to be my favourite, their products are so cheap and really good for sensitive skin so if your looking for some new skincare and haven't given simple a try yet then you should ;)
If you get into the routine of using your products daily then you should help your skin that bit more in no time :)
