It’s my birthday, I'll get high if I want to!

It’s my birthday, I'll get high if I want to... but I don't want to cause I'm a good girl. And its not my birthday anymore, it was yesterday. So basically non of it is true. Awks
The best part of my birthday is getting presents. And this year, I was very fortunate to receive some really nice gifts. I got designer make up cause everyone knows I love make up soo much, I got...

As levels of excitement were high, I decided to try it all out. And although it doesn't look like I'm wearing that much make up, these are all the products I used on my face for this look...

And so here's the look:
Looks kind of crappy cause I had to use my bad eye brushes :'(
and my eyes were watering so the mascara went weird

The down side to the make up:
- Although the Mascara was really good, it felt very heavy on the eyes.

- The Lipstick needed to be applied very thick or otherwise looked clear (may just be cause of my lip colour or may not) and so had to add another lipstick with it
There were only two things that weren't tiptop with the make up. The make up is really good as expected. And I definitely plan to get more (Birthday Money.. Woooo)

Day To Day

Hello beautiful beings! So, I'm still completely obsessed with lipstick but now I have also found another craze... Eye shadow! I hadn't ever really used any of them but recently started to and their actually really good so I thought I'd blog about my booyah techniques.

Anyhoo (Ohh the good old My Wife And Kids days! Btw, look up Franklin, he's soo grown up now) I tried out a gold and brown day to day look that could be used for anything. You could even do it up even more and make it suitable for an occasion. 

I used a random palette I had - non branded
Only used Shades 1 & 2
So here's the look:

What did I do, you ask? Well..
Firstly, I used shade 1 on my eye lid, up to the crease. No higher
Secondly, I used shade 2 in the eye crease and went a bit above to the brow bone.
Thirdy, apply eyeliner on both top and bottom - i used Collection 2000 for the top and Bobbi Brown creamy eyeliner on the waterline
Fourthly, apply mascara (or fake eyelashes if you wish) - i used Long Lasting Clinique Mascara

Like I said before, this look can also be done up for an occasion. Going a bit darker with both shades and working above the shown amount on the higher levels of your eye can make the look more dressed up. And of course, adding some fake eye lashes makes every look better or what I would rather go for... some bad ass mascara that enhances your eyelashes. I would recommend Maybelline Falsies Black Drama Mascara (£7.99) or Rimmel Scandal'eyes Extreme Black (£6.99).
