Orange and brown smokey eye

Orange and brown smokey eye

 Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. Today I wanted to show you this orange smokey eye. When I first purchased this orange eyeshadow I was a little unsure how to make it work - after playing around with shadows I finally made it work for me. I used a matte brown shadow on the lid and started to blend the orange shadow in the crease slowly - you must build it up do not apply loads. To create a crisp look I applied tape at the corners of my eye so it looks neat, as I can be very messy with shadows. I like the effect the tape gives my eye look, the shadow looks nice and angled. Make sure you  blend, blend and blend, to avoid harsh lines!

All makeup products will be listed below! :)




Foundation- Rimmel radiance BB cream (shade medium)
Concealer- Kiko natural skin concealer (shade number two)
Contour/bronzer- Seventeen contour kit (shade light)
Highlight- Makeup Revolution baked highlighter (shade pink lights)
Main lid colour- Matte brown shade from Urban Decay on the run palette
Crease colour- Kiko infinity shadow (shade 209)
Lip liner- MUA (shade nougat) 
Lipgloss- Soap and glory mother pucker 
Eyebrows- Rimmel professional eyebrow pencil (shade dark brown)

Silver eyeshadow look

Silver eyeshadow look







Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog - today I wanted to show you this pretty and simple eye look.  I love experimenting with different eyeshadow because it gets you out of your comfort zone. It's always nice to mix things up every now and then so you don't get into the same boring routine every day. 

So, here's how to get the look...

I am one of those girls who never sticks with the same foundation! I am always trying different ones. This Revlon foundation is a new fave of mine.



  
To blend the foundation I use my Real Techniques, expert face brush. It's fab for blending!

 To add a little bit of definition to my face, I use this Seventeen contour palette - in the shade light.
 I use this powder to just quickly set my foundation into place.
 For lips, I use the MUA lip liner in the shade nougat and the Makeup Revolution lipstick in the shade nude.
 I use this Makeup Revolution highlighter in the shade pink lights, just on the cheekbones.
 I always used to use powders for my brows, now I use this Rimmel eyebrow pencil and it's brilliant!
I use a little bit of this Soap&Glory mascara, before applying my Ardell demi whispies lashes.
This is the Makeup revolution eyeshadow in the shade frozen

 I love Kiko shadows and this is brilliant I applied this in my crease - this shade is 215.
I have to prime my eyes before using eyeshadow so, I use the Collection primer!

10 things you will know too well if you're from Sheffield

10 things you will know too well if you're from Sheffield



Hello! welcome back to my blog. Today I was out and about in my hometown and thought of a fun exciting post - that is relatable things all Sheffield folk know too well. If you're not from Sheffield well, this may seem like jibberish to you!


10-   Meadowhall- now, this can be a fun day at the start but quickly changes your mood. Busy crowds, screaming children and big massive prams that near enough knock you out of the way - fun times, not!

9- When all your lights are on in the house and your mum/dad shouts out "it's like Blackpool illuminations in ere."

8- You will get called a mardy bum and know what it means.

7-  The supertram is a life safer, and you couldn't be without it. Literally my daily commute!

6-  There's always that one kid who get absolutely drenched in the peace gardens water fountains. (Me when I was little, to be honest)

5-  Literally, everyone will call you love!

4- You will also have somebody telling you "Park Hill is a listed building you know."

3- You will replace the word 'something' with 'somert.' 

2-  Hendersons Relish will be your favourite condiment.

1-  You will have experienced tramlines - Sheffield's very own Glastonbury festival.

Thought of the week #1

Thought of the week #1

Hey, everyone welcome back to my blog. So, I recently had an idea to start a new blog post feature - being my thought of the week. Every other Sunday I will be summarising my week and letting you into (hopefully) a detailed thought of mine.  I thought this blog post would be interesting and fun for me and you readers. I think it will be nice for me also to look back on and reflect.  I have seen similar posts to this floating around in the blogging community, so I thought I would jump on the bandwagon! - and give my own unique twist on it. 


My thought of the week!


So, recently my memory stick has broken down on me and erased all my important work - thankfully I paid to recover some files, but others were totally corrupt *sad emoji face.* I know what you're thinking why Is this your thought of the week, well I am now setting myself a late resolution - to be more organised and not take things for granted. I really began to become a little lazy when saving onto my memory stick instead of saving the files onto my computer for a backup I never did - which was very silly because this could of all been avoided. I now know the importance of saving onto my laptop for a backup and have definitely started to become more organised! I also have started to not take things for granted as much by being organised and well planned so I am prepared if anything should go wrong.



What is your though of the week and what do you think of this new blog post feature?
Let me know in the comments.
Love,
Lauren
