MAC haul 13.4.15

DSC00114

Hey guys, how are you all?

This is my first ever high end haul on here and it wont be the last for sure. I decided with the money i got for eater (instead of getting Easter eggs i would buy some MAC products and it means they last longer than Easter eggs and i get more enjoyment out of the eye shadows than Easter eggs).

It was my second ever trip to MAC so i was still very excited (i think i will be excited every time i go in though).I had a good look around and swatched a tone of products on my hands. I then decided i wanted to buy some eye shadows and so i looked at them all and then i asked if i could try a couple on my lids so the makeup artist kindly applied both the colours to my eyes and then i settled on the one i really liked. Then the makeup artist said about making a pallet and i was all for it as that means i have an excuse to go to mac in a few months 🙂 I decided to get the quad as the duo was only £1 cheeper than the quad so of course i was going to go for the better value of money.

I settled on getting all that glitters and lucky green. I decided that i wanted to have a bright colour for all over the lid or in the crease and then also a colour that could just be a quick all over colour for everyday use.

I also got 2 samples of the studio fix foundation to try out i got nw 15 and nw 20.

I am so happy with my purchases and i am defiantly looking forward to future mac shopping trips.

What are some eye shadows that you would recommend and you think would look great in this palette i would love to hear your favorite shadows by MAC.

Makeup collection

makeup collection 4.4.2015 hjrj

Hey guys, how are you all?

So yesterday I filmed my first youtube video in 8 or 9 months. I am now back and ready to rock and roll on my youtube channel as I decided it would be a good thing to add to as I am blogging a lot at the moment and decided video content would be great as well. I am going to be uploading new videos once a week (probably a Saturday).

I am no where means bragging about my collection I am very fortunate to have this amount of makeup and I use all of it and if I don’t use something I do give it to family who would make better use out of it. So lets get into the photos I took and if you want to see the products in detail here is the link to my makeup collection video.

contour and highlighting: featuring beautyuk contour palette and Rimmel lasting finish concealer

how i contour 4.4.2015

how i contour 4.4.2015

Hey guys, how are you all?

Today i have decided to share the way i contour with cream products. I only in the last week have started using cream products to contour with and i am totally in love with the way it looks. Please excuse the acne break outs as you can see them in some of the photos and also excuse the messy hair.

What i am using in this post:

  • beautyuk ultimate contour palette
  • rimmel lasting finish concealer in 010 porcelain (i used this as the highlight colour in the beutyuk palette is the same shade as my skin).

STEP 1 

apply your foundation and concealer.The foundation i used is now to dark for me as i am now at my palest i will be in the year.

STEP 2

I use a concealer that is 1 or 2 shades lighter than my skin tone to highlight. When highlighting you highlight the high points of your face (bridge of your nose, underneath the eyes in a v shape, highlight the tops of your cheekbones and the middle of your forehead).  Remember to blend out the highlight well as you don’t want to look like a complete ghost like i do in this photo but that’s because i wanted to show you where to highlight.

STEP 3

Contour your under cheekbones, hairline, under the jaw line and both sides of the nose. Contouring should bring out your best features and give your face more structure.

That’s all there is to contouring its actually simpler than you would imagine, but it does take practice to get it perfect like everything in life. I still sometimes i still make mistakes after contouring for almost a year.

This is the finished look i came up with.

I hope i could break down contouring and highlighting for you and could help you on your journey to becoming a pro at highlighting and contouring.

Have you got products you love to highlight and contour with if you do please feel free to comment the products down bellow and i will be sure to try them out in the future.

healthy snack/ breakfast – yogurt, fruit, puffed oats

Hey guys, this is a different post from usual but i have decided from now on i am going to incorporate healthy recipes to my blog. I have been loving lately experimenting with different healthy food options and i have found some great recipes which i cant wait to share with you all in the future. But before this intro gets longer lets get into the post! Lately i have been loving this recipe for a snack or a breakfast.

Its super healthy yet it still tastes great (who doesn’t like a tasty healthy breakfast or snack).  Its also something that is light but gives you the energy you need to kick off your day 🙂

What you will need:

  • 4 or 5 table spoons yogurt  (in my case i used almond yogurt as that’s what i like)
  • fruit of your choice (i used raspberries and blueberries)
  • puffed oats or granola

DSC00349   This breakfast / snack is extremely tasty and its something i consume on a daily basis. I used to make this recipe with plain low fat yogurt and granola and fruit but i have been loving it a lot more with almond yogurt and puffed oats as it is a lot sweeter than having plain low fat yogurt and granola. I love anything sweet that is healthy.

I hope you liked this recipe and you try it out and also if you try it out send me photos on instagram or twitter with the hashtag #healthyeatingwithbecca and add my @ name in so i can reply and find them all better. also if you have any recipes you would like me to try and include on my blog leave a comment below and i will be sure to try them all out.

Beauty Faves: March 2015

Hey lovelies, how are you all?

So i have decided to fire in with my first ever series and it will be a monthly one 🙂    Its going to be by what you have read in the title my beauty favorites of each month but the odd occasion i may throw in non beauty favorites that i have been loving through the month.  Hope you all enjoy this new series.

The products in this months favorites are:

  • MUA spring break pallet
  • bd trades secret vital skin long wear foundation
  • Makeup Revolution blush in Sugar
  • Makeup Revolution focus and fix eyebrow shaping kit in light medium
  • Tanya Burr lipgloss in Heart Skipped A Beat
  • Rimmel 1000 kisses lip pencil in 021 red dynamite

Beauty Faves March 2015t

The bd trade secrets vital skin long wear foundation has been a favorite of mine for 2 months now. I actually cant believe i haven’t yet mentioned it online to anyone. This is a foundation that i wear everyday i have makeup on as i love it that much. I will do a full review of it in the next few weeks for you all.

The MUA spring break only came into my collection 2 weeks ago yet its the pallet that i have been jumping to every time i wear makeup as it has everything i need in 1 pallet coulor and nudes 🙂

Beauty Faves March 2015

The Tanya Burr lipglosses i have a bit of a love hate relationship with but thats only because i have a love hate relationship with all lipglosses. Lipgloss is a product i could quite frankly not have in my collection as i hardly use them but this month i have been loving the 2 Tanya Burr lipglosses i have but i have been wearing Heart Skipped A Beat the most out of the 2 i own.

Makeup Revolution focus and fix eyebrow shaping kit in light medium has been in my everyday makeup routine for a good 2 months now and i couldnt go back to not using it as now my eyebrow game is getting stronger and i dont have messy eyebrows everyday now as i was just using a pencil and it didnt fill in my eyebrows how i wanted them but this product does 🙂

Beauty Faves March 2015

Next is the Makeup Revolution blush in Sugar this has also been in my collection for a good 2 months and its one of my all time favorite blushes now. Its good with a natural look and also with a bold look. I just love this blush and its a great steal at £1.

Lastly is the Rimmel 1000 kisses lip liner in 021 red dynamite. This is such a lovely lip liner in fact all the Rimmel 1000 kisses lip liners are lovely. This lip liner underneath the Tanya Burr Heart Skipped A Beat lipgloss looks wonderful.

Hope you all enjoyed the first of this series and come back to see next months favorites.

Have you tried any of these products? If you have what did you try and how did you like the product.
