Naked eye palette 

Hi guys,

I have been using the Urban Decay Naked 1 palette for a few weeks now and thought id share a look with you! 

I am going out for a casual dinner with some friends this evening, so I didn’t want too heavy a look. On my face I used a teeny bit of under eye concealer and a bit of blush so I thought that I could make my eyes stand out a bit.

Firstly I lined my eyes using a benefit ‘bad gal’ pencil. 

Then I used a mac paint pot-‘groundwork’- as a base, rubbing just to the crease of my eyes. 

I then applied ‘half baked’ from my naked palette up to the crease of my eye. Using a more structured, wet brush I applied ‘creep’ to the outer corners of my eyes to create a smoky look. Using a wet brush really makes the pigment stand out! I finished with a sweeping of ‘Virgin’ under my brow. 

Finally I applied benefit ‘magic ink’ liquid eyeliner in ‘jet black’ and applied a coat of ‘they’re real’ mascara.

I find all of these products to be excellent and fairly easy to use. I have never been very good at eye make up but have been making a conscious effort to improve! 

Please let me know what you think…

Back to reality

So yesterday I went back to work after an amazing Christmas break and-although I am glad to have some normality back in my day- I am suffering from serious holiday withdrawals! 

Christmas has always been my favourite holiday but this year it was extra special for a few reasons. Firstly, it was my first Christmas in my flat. I had so much fun picking a tree and getting lots of decorations for it. What do you think?



Another reason why I was so excited for the Christmas break was because I had planned a Christmas movie night with my school pals. We made these cute melting snowman cookies and watched Home Alone 1 and Love Actually. What are your favourite Christmas films?


Finally, on Christmas morning my boyfriend of around 3 years proposed to me with a gorgeous diamond ring. I was so shocked but delighted! Did you have any surprises on Christmas morning? 



I got loads of new make up- some of which I will review on here soon. Also, I was gifted two selfie sticks… Don’t know if that is a hint that I take too many 😄😄!
