Mermaid Inspired Makeup

Today I wanted to post something a little different! I woke up the other day and really wanted to create a fun makeup look for the blog, so that's exactly what I did! I have some really beautiful eye shadows from Makeup Obsession so, in the end I created a mermaid inspired makeup look.



Base:

The base was something that I wanted to keep very simple and easy! Since I have a tan at the minute the only thing that I have been using is the Simple BB Beauty Balm. I have really been loving this product and I'm very impressed! I used one of my favourite concealers too which gave amazing coverage and since the shade is Extra Fair, it gave really great light under eyes!

My Travel Makeup Bag

I'm back!! 

I have returned home after almost 3 months of travelling around Europe. I had the BEST time away but it is nice to be back home.Of course I wanted to jump straight back into blogging because I have so many ideas for my blog and having some time away 100% gave me so much more inspiration and motivation. There will be lots of posts coming your way all about my travels but if you do have any specific requests of what you'd like to see...just let me know! 

Today I wanted to start off with something that I think a lot of you will like, and that's letting you know about what's in my travel makeup bag. This was a post that I had planned to do before I went away but I'm kind of glad that I didn't get it done. I thought that now that I had already been away, I can give you my review of the products fully! Did I regret taking anything? Did the products travel well? How long did they last in the heat? Want to know all these answers, then keep reading!



1. Base

I didn't really want to take a foundation with me as I know they can feel quite heavy on my skin in the sun and it probably would be far too light for me after a few weeks anyway. So, I decided to buy the Simple Kind To Skin Perfecting BB Beauty Balm. This was something I'd always seen online and in the shops, so I thought that I would test it out. I really love this product! It is just one universal shade, so I do think this could be an issue if you don't really tan. But this seemed to be the perfect shade for me all throughout my travels and I have still been using it since I got back. It feels really light on the skin and blends so so well. I think what I liked most about this product is that it could be used to create a really glowy look or you can make it matte too, best of both worlds! I decided to bring a powder with me, as I have quite oily skin. Oily skin and lot's of heat...not a great combination. I decided to take the Seventeen Miracle Matte Pressed Powder. This is a product that I always trust and I tend to use on an everyday basis. I didn't use a lot of this but it really helped to keep my skin to look nice and glowy rather than a greasy mess.

An Underrated Brand- W7!

Today I decided to talk to you about one specific brand that I'm loving at the minute and I also feel like they don't get enough recognition! I love seeing these types of posts because I can discover new makeup products or discover a new brand! The brand is W7...I'm sure you may have heard of them before but I definitely don't feel like I see them enough on social media.



This is a brand that I have used for quite a long time now and I first discovered it when I was looking for a more affordable brand to use on an everyday basis. I soon realised how big the brand was and how many amazing products they have out there! If you've never really looked into them before, I think you will be surprised at what they have on offer.

Never Heard of Blogosphere Magazine...Where Have You Been?

Today's post is a little different as I'm going to be talking about one specific magazine. After posting all about the blogging community last week, I decided it was the perfect time to discuss all about Blogosphere.



Blogosphere is a magazine written by bloggers, for bloggers. It's basically a magazine which has everything current about the blogging world. From events, to designs, to fashion and more! It launched in 2013 so it's still quite a new magazine but...it's doing very well! The founder of Blogosphere wanted to create a magazine where bloggers could all join together to discuss blogging. "For really, who better to tell you what's going on within the blogging world than bloggers themselves?".
