Valentines Day | Make-Up

I don’t have any gripes with Valentines Day, in fact I think it’s a rather cute tradition. Couples should show their fondness of each other all year round, but to have that one special day gives them an excuse to share time together and maybe take their relationship a step further.

I’ve only celebrated Valentines Day one, and that was quite some time ago! Again, I shall be going it alone this year… I guess I’m still waiting for that Mr Right to show up, or maybe I’ve already found him but just don’t know it yet.

Never the less, I’m going out and celebrating tomorrow evening with my dear housemate Abbie. We have bough tickets to go and see a King Charles gig, which I’m so excited about! Last time I saw him he was amazing, so lets hope he is just as good! I mean, you can’t really go wrong spending your valentines night with King Charles now, can you?

Anyway, here is how I shall be doing my make up for the evening. I hope you like it…

I’m so sorry for the really bad lighting in these photos, my room is just so dark and dim that it’s hard to get a good photo.

For my eyes I used the NO7 Eye Shadow Palette, using colours from the Golden Trio, the Cappuccino Trio and the Chocolate Fondant Quad (numbers 9, 10 and 14 in the set). I absolutely love this set, the shades are all so natural and are really easy to apply, lasting a long amount of time.

As always, my lipstick is from Natural Collection in the colour Hazelnut. I can’t get enough of this recently! To make it last longer, I’d normally apply a layer of Clinique’s Long Last Gloss Wear in the colour Stellar Plumb, which is pretty much the same colour. However, I think this shade is limited edition and has gone out of stock which is such a shame as it’s gorgeous. The closest I can find in the same make is Bonfire which is almost exactly the same – just a touch lighter.

I hope you all have a great Valentines Day whether or not you’re single or in a relationship. Make it special!

Past few days | Update

I apologise for my disappearance over the past few days, it has been ultra-busy at this end. First things first it was my A-Level results day. Luckily I already had an unconditional offer at my university meaning the stress of getting certain grades was taken away; but I was still nervous to find out what I had got. When I opened my envelope it turned out I had straight Bs which I was extremely happy with. All of my friends had gotten the grades they needed to get into their uni too sooo all in all it was a good day. To celebrate, me and my friend Millie decided to bake some cookies and a cake!
I’d bought her a Popin Cookin set for Christmas resulting in us making what seemed like the World’s smallest cake. Popin Cookin is basically a Japanese brand. You can create a lot of mini things to eat, like mini ice creams, mini sweets, but because Millie is so into baking I chose the mini cake. One minute the cake was around five sachets of powder (which looked incredibly sugary) but by adding a bit of heat and water, the next minute it was a cake! Fascinating stuff really…
 We turned it into a little demon (with bright pink hair!) I have to admit he looked pretty good – it’s a shame I can’t say the same for the taste! We didn’t end up eating more than a crumb but it was fun to make.

I met up with my friend Tom on results day too. He’d recently been to the Punk festival Rebellion and with returning presented me with some of my very own ‘Punk Rock’. Yep, this was a stick of Blackpool rock that the punk band Goldblade had been selling with their logo on the front. It seriously was the best thing ever! :’)
Punk Rock. There is nothing more to say
Then I guess for the other few days I have been sorting out a lot of university stuff, registering, confirming and going out shopping for all the kitcheny things and bedding… It has been busy! Thankfully though, there are only a few more bits and bobs that need picking up and I think then it’ll just be a case of moving into my new house.
All that’s left is to add a bit of colour. Pink? Or Blue?
So that was me, and even with all of this going on, I’ve managed to draw this pretty picture! I don’t know who it is, at first I was trying to turn myself into an old school Disney character… I think it’s pretty cute.

Let me know what you make of it! I will be back up and blogging now so stay tuned.
