“Warm Chocolate Eyes + Rosy Lips”: Quick & Easy Drugstore Interview Makeup

If you’re following me on Insta (cough cough, plug plug), you’d have seen I’d posted a selfie in which I wore this particular make-up look. Not to blow my own trumpet (not heard that in a while haha) but I quite liked my make-up that day – *plays Feelin’ Myself in the background* – and decided to share it on the blog. So here it is…

BEAUTY // Lip Combo #1: Spring/Summer Coral Lip

Hope you all had a lovely Easter!

I’ve been ill for a good part of the past week or so but the bright side is that it meant I had lots of time to have a play around with my never ending stash of lipsticks and lip pencils. Usually one to shy away from a bright lip however, this suddenly sunnier weather has definitely inspired me to try out a bolder colour that isn’t my usual red or plum. Enter coral. I usually wear coral on my nails but never ventured to try it on my lips because I’ve been concerned it was too bright for my darker complexion. I’ve discovered that once the right lip combo is put together, you can pretty much wear whatever lipstick shade – bright or dark – regardless of your skin tone. So I thought I’d with you how I wear a coral lip in prep for the upcoming summer months, enjoy!

MUSIC // “Spotify Wishlist”

You know when you hear a new song and you’re listening to it on repeat on YouTube while you’re at home, desperately waiting for the release date which is usually like an annoying three months away. Which means its not on Spotify for an absolute age and you’re using all your mobile data up trying to get your daily listen while YouTube takes it sweet time to decide whether or not it wants to buffer for a good hour or so. Anyone else know this struggle?

HIGHLIGHTS OF 2014

HAPPY NEW YEAR YOU BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE!

So in my previous post I talked about what I was thankful for in 2014 and what I was hoping for in 2015, you can have a read of it here. 2014 was definitely filled with so many memories: seeing Beyoncé for the second time and holding her hand (YES I HELD HER HAND), interned at Boots Head Offices in the summer, started my blog, made some AMAZING friends, met some incredible people, finished and passed my first year at uni, saw Rixton live, road trips, birthdays, parties, and lots of laughter. Of course there were low points but lets not dwell on that. Here are my highlights of 2014, hope you enjoy!

To think there are even more photos on my old phone  and on my Instagram that I can’t get off at the moment just goes to show how camera happy I got this year haha! What were your highlights of 2014? I’ve really enjoyed reading people’s year round up/highlights posts so feel free to comment links to any of these below!

Until next time,

Esther

BEAUTY // WINTER SOS: “SAVE OUR SKIN”

winter beauty

Like most people, I despise having dry skin. And whilst winter is one of my favourite seasons, my already dry skin suffers to the extreme due to it being so cold. I started to realise that my day creams weren’t enough to ensure that My skin wasn’t drying out as soon as the cold winds smacked it in the face. In this post, I’m gonna share with you how I keep my skin moisturised and baby soft throughout the cold months! Hope you enjoy!

Beauty // My Updated Foundation Routine

As you can see from the title, I will be sharing with you my foundation routine. Even though I’ve not shared my foundation routine on here before, I say updated because I recently tried out the No. 7 Instant Radiance foundation (which you can read my thoughts on it here) and plan on incorporating it into my everyday routine once I’ve purchased the full size version. My foundation routine varies with how much time I’ve got and to be honest, if I can be bothered really. But this post will hopefully give you an idea of what I use generally for my foundation recently on a day to day basis.
