Every Day Makeup

Well this is a first! I have never done a beauty post before but im really getting back into my make up and what better place to start than with my everyday products.

Starting with my basedsc06627

Primers :: She Pure magic primer & Nutrimetic line prime

Foundation :: Za BB Cream and Thin Lizzy Concealer cream

Concealer :: Natio Natural Concealer & LA Girl Pro Conceal

Powder :: Rimmel London Stay Matte Powder

Bronzer/Contour :: Thin Lizzy 6 in 1

Blusher :: Nutrimetics Pure Touch Blush in Plum

Highlighter :: Dollar store brand “Shiny Powder”

Then onto eyes and brows!

I like to keep it very basic for my eyes,

Brows :: For my brows i use the Nutrimetics Glam Colour palette and i like to use the brown eyeliner shadow, it gives a nice bold brow that lasts all day

Eyes :: If i use eyeshadow i reach for the Nutrimetics eye brow kit. It has all the perfect shades for an all over colour, browbone and inner corner highlight as well as a great light brown for the crease and darker brown to either darken the outer corner for a smokey look or to use on the lash line as a smudged liner

Lashes :: I use the Nutrimetics liquid eye definer for a cat winged liner and for mascara I am obsessed with the Za Perfect Action Waterproof Mascara, it literally does not move! For a little extra volume i will usually layer that with my Nutrimetics 4 in one Ultimate Mascara, followed by that, depending on what mood i’m in i will use the Nutrimetics Defining waterproof eye pencil in my waterline to give my eyes a more sultry look

Then for lips ::

Lips :: I stay very neutral with my lips as i am a chronic lip smusher so lip products dont tend to last well on me when im alway rubbing my lips together, so my fave it the Natio Long Lasting Lip liner in Nude, But unfortunately i am coming to the end of that one so I have been reaching for my Nutrimetics Perfecting Lip Pencil in Nude, and if i feel like gloss I will reach for my Nutrimetics Lip Lightening Gloss in Blush rose.

Now I now there is ALOT of Nutrimetics products so I will tell you here that I used to be a consultant for Nutrimetics, so i still have alot of their products left that i tend to use, they are very nice products but there are definitely alternative products out there that you can use instead. These are just what I use right now.

I have filmed a get ready with me video to go alongside this post so you can see how I apply these products, when that video is live I will add a link HERE.

I hope you liked this kind of post as it is a new one for me, let me know your thoughts in the comments, and if you have any products to recommend then please let me know 🙂

#TBT My First YouTube Video

So on Monday, I was looking through my old videos to show a friend on twitter that you can still do a make up video without having the High end filming equipment that most girls use today. In looking back for My First Make up Tutorial i also stumbled across my first ever YouTube video and man does it make me cringe!

My First YouTube Video!

It was a 46 Questions tag to introduce myself and it was filmed on an old boxy, White Macbook Pro in photobooth! I was nervous as hell pausing on questions like when is your birthday because I wasnt sure if i should say the year, I kept looking at myself in the screen and playing with my hair, and i was trying way too hard to make sure i looked the part.

More importantly, the point of this blog post is that.. I do not recognise that person. It was Pre Children, Pre baby body, like 30-40kgs lighter, and not to mention the overkill side part!

In listening to the answers I realized that I lied to make myself seem more interesting and generic to the other beauty vloggers, Half of the answers i wouldn’t even think to pick now, like my fave restaurant? Pah lease! i went there once and i NEVER eat at restaurants, since then (5 years ago) i have been to a handful of places. And my fave snack, are you kidding me?! Unsalted peanuts? who the fuck are you! and by the way they are NOT really good for you, DOOFUS!

I was trying so hard that I don’t even recognise who she is, and while i may love the fact that she is a lot slimmer and loved herself alot more than I do I’m more true to who I am now and honest about my thoughts and opinions.

What did you think of the video? Do you look back and wonder the same? how far have you come? What is your throwback?
