How to depot single eyeshadows to put into a palette (pictures and step by step instruction)

I have had a few people ask me how I depot my single eye shadows so that I am able to put them into a z palette so I decided to do a post about how I do it, it is so quick and easy and you only need a few things to do it.

you will need
  • Straighteners 
  • Z palette or magnetic palette
  • A needle or something similar
  • Magnets
Turn on straighteners so that they have time to heat up
decided what eye shadow you want to depot and place it on straighteners
Make sure to keep moving the eye shadow up and down the plate so that it doesn't stick or melt
leave it on the straighteners for 30 second to 1 minute
place a needle or something sharp between the eye shadow pan and the outer packaging and wiggle it until it becomes lose
you will then be able to scoop it out if not place back on the straighteners for another 30 seconds
when you scoop it out place it upside down and use the needle to peel the sticker off the bottom of the eyeshadow pan and place it onto the eye shadow as soon as possible as the glue on the bottom dries quick
place a magnet onto the sticker and place into a magnetic or Z palette.

Benefit Rollerlash review with before and after pictures

I know this review is late but I suppose its better late than never lol but I have about 8 mascaras that I am using at the moment, and I hate opening too many mascaras at once as they end up drying up before I get a chance to use them properly, But I couldn't wait any longer so I decided to use it today. I am currently using the sample size mascara that I received for free in Elle magazine, so the packaging inst as pretty as the full size mascara but none of the less its still cute.

Lipstick Haul - L'Oreal Colour Riche Lipsticks swatches and review

A few days ago I was scrolling through my instagram when I noticed a picture from superdrug advertising the L'Oreal colour riche lipsticks...they were celebrating 30 years of the lipstick. Therefore the lipsticks were on sale at £3, as I am a lipstick lover and I have never tried L'Oreal lipsticks before I decided to buy a couple to try them out, but when I went on the superdrug website not only were they £3 but they had the 3 for 2 offer so I was able to get 9 of the lipsticks. I can honestly say that I am totally in love with the packaging I love gold packaging so much (looks so luxurious and expensive) and I think that the colour range is a amazing as they range of colours from light nudes, dark nudes, pinks, purples and berry with a few matte finishes which is my favourite finish.

Weight loss Wednesday week 1

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog, as you can see from the title weight loss Wednesday is going to be were I update you on my weight loss. I can finally say I'm at that point now where I feel so unhappy and depressed because of my weight and it has really been getting me down as I feel it is stopping me from doing things I used to enjoy and is making me less confident. Therefore today I got myself weighed and Calulated my BMI to find I was overweight which I was already aware of but it has made me more determined now to lose weight, especially in time for my holiday to Spain so that I can feel healthy as well as confident in a bikini. 

 My current weight is 11st 2.5lb (size 12-14) and I am hoping to get to 9st (size 10) as this should make me a healthy weight for my height. I am going to start changing my eating habits drastically by swapping coke for water (which I honestly can't stand it mainly because it doesn't taste of anything however I know that it is good for me). I am also going to stop having take aways bye bye Big Macs I don't know how I am going to live without you aha, and eating a balanced diet. 

I normally do workout on a Sunday whether that is insanty of fitness blender on YouTube however I only do it for 30 minutes to an hour which isn't really going to make a difference to my weight loss, therefore I am going to exercise at least everyday as I have signed up to my local gym and start leaving the car at home and walking. I am going to try and update you on my weight loss every two to three weeks and see if any of these changes really make a different, obvisusly I am not a doctor, Dietrian or fitness instructor however I have done much research online and I am trying to lose weight at a steady safe pace. 

If anyone has any feedback or other suggestions I can do to help with my weight loss journey I would love to know? 

Thank you for reading don't forget to follow me on bloglovin and other social media sites and I will talk to you all soon

Beauty tips and tricks Tuesday - Eyeliner

I love finding out new makeup tips and tricks which may make makeup application quicker or easy so here are my Eyeliner tips and tricks which I have been doing myself. Make sure to check out my mascara tips and tricks 

1. Use tape on a diagonal angle from the end of your eye meeting up with the end of your eyebrow when applying eye shadow or eyeliner, as this will allow you to create the perfect cat eye.

2. Line the water line with a white or nude eyeliner to make the eyes appear wider, it will also help to make your look more awake.

3. Tight line or line the upper lash line with a black eyeliner, this will add definition to your eyes and make your lashes appear thicker and darker.

4. Use concealer to clean up you eyeliner whether you make a mistake or you want the eyeliner to look more sharp and accurate. 

5. Turn your Kohl eyeliner into a gel eyeliner by holding the tip of the eyeliner above a flame for a few seconds.

Bargain lip liners - essence lip liners only £1 swatches and review

While going shopping a few days ago I stumbled upon these essence lip liners in Wilkinson, they were only £1 so I thought that I would buy a few to see how they were. 

Lately I have really been loving lip liners and branching out to different brands, however these essence lip liners are truly amazing, my favourite colour out of the bunch has to be 06 satin mauve which is a beautiful pink mauve colour and looks amazing by itself or with MAC brave or MAC Velvet teddy over.
