Small Shopping Trip, New Primark Shirt and Statement Necklace

Heyyy Everyone, 
I went into town today and I didn't buy much but what I did buy I'm so excited I must show you straight away. 
When shirts became really popular a few years ago I bought a few and I liked them on but I just never wore them much, so I never bought any more but when I saw this one today I was instantly drawn to it and just had to buy it. 

I also picked up a statement necklace to go with it, I'm really loving all the statement necklaces' about. I think Primark do fantastic ones and at great prices. 

So here they are.... 

I'm thinking maybe this shirt could be a love it or hate it kind of item BUT I absolutely LOVE it with a passion. I really love the bright colours against the black, I think this would look fab with black leggings or disco pants and the bright colours would really jazz it up. 
As I said I bought this today so its current in Primark and it cost me £13.00. The statement necklace I thought goes perfect with this shirt with all the bright colours and that cost me £5.00. 

I will try and remember to do a OOTD wearing this so you can see what it looks like on. 

Hope your well :-)

Valentines FOTN and OOTN

Heyy Everyone....
I'm not usually one to make a big fuss of Valentines Day but it just so happened that this year a friends birthday party fell on Valentines so for the first time in years I had plans. 
I decided to get into the spirit and wear a red dress from Asos, and I wore my eyes quite dark and a red lip. 

The make up I used;
Foundation - Revlon Colorstay
Concealer - Collection Lasting Perfection
Setting powder - Smashbox
Blush - Illamasqua Sophie
Bronzer - Benefit Hoola
Brows - Benefit Brow Zings
Eyes - Naked 2 Palette - Bootycall, Busted, Tease and Blackout
Black Glitter
Eyeliner - Benefit Bad Gal waterproof liner
Mascara - Eyeko skinny brush mascara
Lashes - Superdrugs own double volume
Lipstick - Mac Ruby Woo

I like to mix up my eye make up so because last week I went blue and glitter I wanted something abit more classic, there was some glitter involved but all I done was put black glitter over my eyeliner on both top and bottom lashline, I was really happy with the look. 

My dress is from Asos and I love it, really flattering with the tie round the middle, and a gorgeous colour. 

My shoes are really high black glitter platforms from a local shop in Liverpool, my necklace is from Primark and hair piece by Frankie Essex. 

Hope you had a lovely Valentines whatever you got up to :-)

Masquerade Ball Party Look

Heyy Everyone...
Last night I attended a birthday party that had one the coolest themes ever. It was a Masquerade Ball theme, I decided to keep my outfit quite classic so the mask could do all the talking and for my make up I done a blue/black smokey eye with silver glitter. 

First of all lets start with make up... 

Here are all the products I used to create this look, I don't think there are that many considering its an evening look. 
Benefit Hoola - Bronzer
Revlon Colorstay natural beige - Foundation
Benefit High Beam - Highlighter
Mac Fluidline Blitz & Glitz - Eyeliner for top lashline
Illamasqua Sophie Blush - Blusher
Collection lasting perfection - concealer
Illamasqua Immodest - Lipstick
Urban Decay 24/7 oil slick - eyeliner for bottom lashline
Smashbox halo yellow correcting powder - setting powder
Front Cover Silver Glitter
Illamasqua sealing Gel
Benefit Brow Zings dark - Brows
Bourjois Smokey Eyes trio Bleu nuit - eyeshadow

For my outfit I decided I wanted a classy/classic look so I went for a black pencil dress that I got in the Asos sale and some shoes from Primark that I named my 'lady shoes' not my usual style but they went amazingly well with the dress. 

I bought the dress about two weeks ago so its possibly still available, the shoes are currently in Primark and cost £14.00, I don't find them very comfortable but lets be honest the look good, so I don't mind a bit of pain.
Just a quick note my extensions are new and they are by TOWIE Frankie Essex, but i'll be doing a whole separate post on them. 
Last but not least ill leave you with a picture of the msk I wore for the party, it really was such a cool idea for a party and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

Superdrug 3 for 2 - Barry M Gelly Nail Paint

Heyy Everyone, 
Recently I went into my local Superdrug and the had a 3 for 2 offer on all cosmetics, so I decided would be rude to not take advantage of such a great offer. 

I picked up 3 Barry M Gelly Hi - Shine nail varnishes. I have so many Barry M nail varnishes but I really do like them allot. I love the colour selection, think they are good quality and a great price. 

The 3 colours I decided to pick up and add to my ever growing collection are... Blue Grape, Key Lime, and Dragon. 

First up Blue Grape

Next up is Key Lime

and last but not least Dragon

I applied two coats of each before taking the picture and that was enough, maybe Dragon could of done with 3 coats as its very sheer when you first apply it. 

I love how bright and eye catching the Barry M nail varnishes are and that's one the reasons I have so many. I think these 3 make perfect additions to my collection.

Do you have a favorite Barry M nail varnish colour??? Id love to know what it is.

Strong Smokey Eye Using Benefit Smokin' Eyes Kit

Heyy Everyone, 
I decided to dig out my Benefit Smokin' Eyes Kit and create quite a strong smokey eye with it. 
I Love this little kit and realized I just don't give it as much love as I should. 

As you can see you get a pink highlight eye shadow, a pewter base eye shadow, a deep charcoal eye shadow, a smokin' liner, brow zings (mine is shade light) eye bright (cream eye brightener) and a little set of tweezers. 

Here is the look I created

I wanted the finished look to be strong eyes, bronzed skin and a nude gloss lip. 
I love the smokin' eyes kit, you have everything you need to create a sexy smokey eye and you can make it as bold as you like. I would also wear the Pewter shade on its own during the day, its such a pretty shade and the quality/pigment of the shadows as you can imagine from Benefit is really high. 

Hope you liked this look.

Few Charity Shop Buys

Heyy Everyone, 
I popped into a charity shop today, just for a nose around and bought a couple of things. I never got anything too special but thought I would show you anyway as the prices were so great. 

First up we have a black and white spotty dress from H&M, now this is actually a few sizes too big but I tried it on and it just looks like a looser fitting dress. I couldn't resist those spots. That cost £2.99

Next up is a grey skull print top, I love the longer back on this top. It cost me £1.99

Next up is a stunning denim look dress, I particularly love the back detail with the buttons and the fake pocket. The stretchy waist makes it very flattering too. This cost me £4.99

Last but not least is a cute little black dress with a collar and button detail. This cost me £2.49

I'm very happy with the items I picked up today they are in perfect condition and as you can see the prices are amazing. I spent round abut £12.50, now who could complain about that. 

I think I may have to re discover my love for charity shops.

Happy Belated Halloween - Evil Clown

Heyy Everyone...
Well I planned on doing this post either the day before or the actual day of Halloween but as fellow MUA's will know Halloween is a busy period, especially now as people seem to be wanting more creative looks with their make up and I love it. 

Well here is my belated Halloween look number 4 and it is an Evil Clown. Its probably the most scary look I've done this year and I'm really happy with it.

So there is my evil clown, I think this has to be my favorite as its the most scary I've done up to now. I think clowns are so scary anyway so was weird to look at my face like this but I think the look is great for Halloween. 

So I'm sad Halloween is over but once Halloween and Bonfire night are done then its officially the run up to Christmas... in my eyes anyway :-) 

Hope your all doing well

Love Lucy x x
