MAC Lipstick For Sale

I'm selling MAC Creme Cup lipstick which I bought the other day. Its a gorgeous nude pink colour which i love but unfortunately it doesn't suit me. I'm definitely annoyed at this as i liked it so much yet just seems a waste for it to be sitting in my draw. I have swatched this one, its a cremesheen lipstick and comes with the box. I'll be selling it for £12 including postage to the UK. If you're interested and would like to know more/contact me feel free to email me; xxx

Beauty Tip From Cheryl Cole

If anyone has twitter and follows Cheryl Cole they will know that she's prone for her random tweets and she happened to post a beauty tip; which i think it's very handy!

"*Beauty Tip* for unruly eyebrows.. wash out an old bristle tip mascara brush and leave it to dry overnight.. spray on a little it of Elnett and brush it over your eyebrows.. it'll keep them in place for the night ;-)"

Personally i think this tip is brilliant! As soon as i saw her tweet i washed a mascara brush i no longer used and found out my Cheryl Cole limited edition Elnett (coincidence?) and did exactly what the woman herself said. I found it works very well for training your eyebrows to grow in the direction you want them to! It makes such a difference for me, i do it at night and after i've applied my makeup, and will do this for a very long time! Thankyou Cheryl.

My Top 3 Mascaras

After using many mascaras i have currently discovered my top three favourites in my collection. Without fail i will use on of these on a daily basis as i love the finish they give. I think to get the perfect mascara you have to 'like' he brush it comes with, personally i don't think the formula of the product matters as much.

Firstly i have the Loreal Volume Million Lashes which i found love for after borrowing my mums. I love the way it coats the lashes in just the right amount of mascara to make them long, thick and dramatic without leaving them clumpy. I find this mascara out of these three hold the best curl that my eyelash curlers create.
Secondly I have the Bourjois Paris Elastic Mascara which is stated on the bottle/tube 'stretchable formula 130% more visible length' I do agree with the fact that it makes my lashes longer, this mascara doesn't clump my lashes but gives enough volume for them to stand out. I wear this mascara for the more natural effect as it doesn't make the eyes look dramatic. 
Finally i have my newest love of mascaras. Rimmel London Glam'Eyes Day 2 Night Mascara which is a mascara with a 2 in 1 magic cap. I love the fact this has two brushes in it, in the picture about the volume wand is pictured. The volume wand gives the perfect volumeised lashes whereas the lengthening one coats the lashes but doesn't really appeal to me. I use this mascara by using the lengthening wand first and then the volume one on top, a perfect mascara combo! I am definitely going to be repurchasing this mascara for a while.
Are any of these mascaras in your favourites? xxx

Bonfire Night

This is abit of a late post but i thought i would share what i got up to on bonfire night. I went to a gorgeous stately home named Ragley Hall that is near me. I love this place and always visited the adventure park when i was little and have always dreamed about getting married here! 
Its honestly stunning. 

I went the previous year and this year it was so much better. The bonfire was lit at 6 o'clock and then we had entertainment of the local radio dj's, live singers and a fire breather!!! I'd never seen a fire breather but oh my god! That man had some balls, its outrageous. We then enjoyed 20 minutes of gorgeous fireworks. Did you all enjoy bonfire night? xxx

Minx Nails!

On monday i did a training course to be qualifited in minx nails. I found it very interesting and im yet to decided whether i like the outcome of the look that minx give which is why i decided to do this post. I had heard of minx before but never looked into it or had it done on myself. For those who dont know minx is a solid film with an adhesive backing that is heat activated by an infared lamp.The heat gives the minx the conformability to fit over the compound curve of a nail and seals the film onto the bed. Minx comes in many different shades and patterns and is also very popular in America especially with the celebrities; Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, Beyonce and Rihanna.

They are very quick to apply, you do a quick manicure including filing the nails into shape pushing back cuticles and then dehydrating the nail. Once thats done you heat up the hands under the infared lamp and heat up the minx sheet. Then selecting the correct size minx for the nail apply to the nail by aligning the curved end of the minx up close, but not touching the eponychium gently pull and fold the excess minx over the free edge and secure under the finger. Then you need to allow to fully cool. Once cooled take a nail file at a 45 degree angle to the free edge to remove excess minx.

However im not sure whether i like minx on the hands? It only lasts about 1 week on the hands where as the toes they grow out which is pretty good, after a day or two i have got used to it and do like it, but i love it on my toes more! What do you all think? Have you had minx before? xxx
