Posts Tagged ‘make up’

If anybody actually reads this thing regularly then they may have noticed my recent long absence. The reason for this is my long-anticipated, exercise-saturated holiday to Austria!!

Have no fear, I didn’t forget the blog while I was away. I carried on doing my hair as usual and have amassed a huge collection of hair photographs to post here 🙂

Braided Updo

Side Faux Bang

Kiss Curl

Pincurls

Victory Rolls with ponytail

So you see, I didn’t forget to keep you guysers updated!!

I’m sorry about the lack of outfit photographs in this post, but all of the outfit photos are on the camera whereas I took the hair photographs on my phone… and I’m too lazy to go and get the camera at the moment 😛 I promise there’ll be outfits on the blog before the week is out.

Just a quick mention of Lisa Freemont Street… her video for holiday packing was so useful. Sadly I don’t have any Hot Sticks, but I made do with the pincurl clips and my hair flowers didn’t get crushed 🙂 GOOD TIMES!!

Bye bye,

Well, C told me about this competition that Specsavers are running to find people who “look great in glasses”. Cue me!! Haha, maybe not “great”, but if it was a quest to find people who look “pretty damn good” in glasses, I’d win, no doubt about it ;D

Both C and I are going to go for it, and mere moments ago I sent in my application…

In the above, I’ve done my hair with my hot rollers and a lot of the make up is my new Benefit from London.

Quick post, I know, but I’m conscious that I haven’t really blogged in a while 🙂

Bye bye,

I recently spent a long weekend in London with my parents, sort of as a late birthday present!! We stayed in the K+K Hotel George:

… and on our first night in London we went to the Ivy 🙂

…and then went down by the Thames, where we met these odd individuals.

If anybody’s wondering, yes that is my prom dress and shoes. However I didn’t use the underskirt and I put the little white cardigan over the top in case I got cold. Alas, I left the cardigan somewhere on the Friday and it’s surely gone forever now 😦

Also on the Friday, I went to the Benefit Boutique in Covent Garden!! All the ladies there were lovely… good times 🙂

I had my eyebrows waxed, plucked and generally beaten into shape, and a makeover.

Tah-DAH!!

I ended up buying all of these products:

Big Beautiful Eyes Palette

BADgal plum mascara

High Beam

And now I know how exactly to use all of these things… which is, you know, a good thing. If it was left up to me I’m sure I’d be terrible at it, hahah 😛

I received a little gift bag too, which included these goodies:

Creaseless Cream Shadow/ Liner in Flying Down To

That Gal primer - I got a little tester size of this 🙂

FRIDGE MAGNETS 😀

Of course, I had to partake in some vintage shopping 😉 I went to Rokit in Covent Garden and picked up a silk scarf and a cute keyring/ measuring tape.

And to round it all off, I have some pictures of a faux bang style with pigtails for you all 🙂

The pomade I use is Black and White Genuine Pluko.

Bye bye,

I shall post the outfit that was due yesterday. I just didn’t get around to it… but to make up for posting late, I also have a picture of today’s hair to show you.

Apologies for the mirror photograph. As I’m sure you know I can’t bear taking photographs in this pose, but sometimes it’s necessary.

Blouse and cardigan – Matalan

Jeans – Next

There were also a pair of red peeptoe wedges from Tesco 🙂

I just had my hair in a pomp & ponytail, felt to lazy yesterday to do anything more advanced…

However, today I felt much more in the mood for something complicated. So I had a look at the gorgeous ClassicRetroGlamour’s video…

and had a go myself 🙂 I changed some of the things in it, for example doing three main pincurls instead of four, and I curled my hair with straightening irons instead of sponge rollers, but the basic form is the same.

My new hair bow!! ❤

And yes, before you ask, I shall be going to school with my hair set like this. Even if it is only for a geography exam 😦

Bye bye,

Just a warning – real life has been getting in the way recently. I’ve got a lot of exams to do so I’m not posting as often as I should. Plus my sister has fucked up the computer with some sort of virus. So be warned – I’m not happy :@

Etsy purchases #3 and #4 🙂

Creepy Crawl hair clips by Cute and Creepy Inc on Etsy – $4.00

Eye See You ring by Cute and Creepy Inc on Etsy – $2.50

A new frock:

And the Holy Grail: successful pincurls. Perhaps not perfect, but good enough for me. I’ll show some pictures of the set first (as you can see, it’s waaaaay tidier than the other one).

The next photos were taken after an entire day at school…

Also two new make up brushes:

Ms Makeup Work the Angles Angled Eyeliner Brush – £5.49

Ms Makeup Made in the Shade Eye Shading Brush – £4.49

Also there was a free gift offer in Boots when if you spent £6 on 17 cosmetics, you got a free set with a nail polish, eyeshadow and eyeliner in it. So of course, I spent £6.

You get the Fast Finish nail polish in Knockout Red…

… the Solo eyeshadow in Viva Diva…

… and the Perfect Definition eyeliner in Azure.

And it all comes in a cute little stripy tin 😉

Au revoir, mes amours!

So yesterday, Good Friday, I went off into Blackpool with the mother and actually bought clothes! This is a rare occurrence, believe me. And I actually got some pretty good stuff. None of it’s vintage, mainly due to the fact that it’s Blackpool and we have no vintage stores whatsoever, but it’s all vintage inspired. Plus, when I go to London in July I plan to buy lots and lots of genuine vintage. Haul is as follows;

– Stripy bow-necked top with bow on the collar and navy cropped cardigan from New Look…

(I struggled to take photos of these while I was wearing them, so here are the images off the New Look website.)

– A gorgeous pair of shoes from Peacocks that I’ve had my eye on for a while…

– Sleek liquid eyeliner in a pretty container from Superdrug…

– A trio of toffee-coloured eyeshadows from Boots…

– And a bright red lipstick from Boots Collection 2000.

I tried out the eyeliner and lipstick when I got home; this is what they look like.

Damn.

So that’s all for today. I made a fairly big Etsy order a few days ago, so when it arrives I’ll be posting images and whatnot about that.

Bye bye,
