School makeup routine

I thought I'd just show you guys what I use in my school make-up routine. I love all these products so much. all products are drug store, because i mean im a teenager, I don't have lot of money. i bought all these products with my own money and this isn't sponsored whatsoever:)
RT core collection £21.99
every day i use the buffing brush and contour brush from this set. i love real technique brushes so much just because theyre such great quality for how cheap they are. i also got this set half price during summer so got this for only £10.99. there are always offers on so you can get it for wayyy cheaper. 

collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer: £4.19 
This is my holy grail concealer! its so thick and creamy, so its great for blemishes. it has a really fully coverage and doesn't wear off during the day. i usually use this on blemishes and spots, but if i have really dark circles under my eyes i would use it under my eyes too. 

i love this concealer for under my eyes, when i don't have really dark circles, it doesnt have too much coverage and the colour range is quite bad in the boots where i live. but i still love the product. 

Maybelline master sculpt: £6.99
i dont use this everyday, but when i have extra time and want to add some definition i love to contour or just highlight a little, i love this product, its so cheap and the pigment in it is AH-mazing! the highlighter just makes you look as if you have a really healthy glow which i love.

rimmel wake me up mascara: £7.99
this mascara. wow. the smell is so refreshing, every time i lift it i smell it first. it really lengthens my tiny lashes and adds volume! definitely my holy grail mascara lately!

rimmel stay matte pressed powder £3.99
lemme just say this powder is woooow. i've used it for like 5 years now and let me tell you. it works! i have super oily skin and this helps my makeup saty without a prmer or setting spray ALL day! if you haven't tried this yet, go buy it now!!   

vaseline: £1.30
i mean, vaseline pretty straightforward right?

collection 2000 brow kit: £3.99
this stuff is so good! at least one colour is usually useless, but for the price why would you care? it lasts all day. it also come with a little brush to apply the powder and also a clear brow gel to set the product. if you're on a budget definitely get this!

until next time.

what i've been loving: October

October's almost over so I'd thought I'd share some of my favourites for this month because I've been loving a few things this month and I guess it would be kind to share them! :) 

Tv shows and movies: 

The vampire diaries
I finally started this series and I am absolutely loving it. I can never really explain tv shows or movies very well so I'll just skip and you can take my word and watch it, if you're late to the bandwagon too! 

Harry Potter movies
It's actually really hard to believe that I had never watched any of the Harry Potter films ever. I used to get so much hate from my friends because of it obviously sarcasm but I would never know what they were talking about. I decided that I would watch the first one one day and ended up watching all eight of them. I can definitely see the hype and it's definitely worth the almost whole day watching them. 

Yep never had watched this before either oops.  Oh my goodness. This was so amazing and really got me into the Halloween spirit. I watched it the first day of October and have watched it another like 3 times since, it would have been many more if it weren't for school and concerts and all that jazz. If you're still not in the Halloween mood i would definitely go and watch! 

This is honestly my favorite homemade drink this month, it taste just like Starbucks hot chocolate with a pump of peppermint. It tastes like Christmas and it just makes me happy and helps me relax. If I'm making the regular hot chocolate, I add some cinnamon to it to give it a nice sweet taste. 

Options hot chocolate mint/ regular


Soap and glory flake away  

This was given to me a present and I am so thankful. Although it looks so nasty it actually smells so good. I use it once a week or more if I have a special event and it just removes all the dead skin and helps your legs stay much more smoother and if you self tan, it stays on longer and goes on much better! It's about £10 for a tub so it's not too pricey! 

Naked 3 pallette by urban decay 

I bought this a while back but I think the colours in it are perfect for fall. I love the rose kind of colours in it, especially limit! I've been using the pallette everyday I wear makeup and I've gotten so many compliments on my eyes!

falling in love with autumn

I absolutely love autumn, it's my favourite time of the year. I love being able to pull my woolly jumpers and boots out and the fact the jumpers are still so comfy and soft after years is amazing. I love the changing scenery, the leaves changing from vibrant green to rusty orange and hazelnut brown to fall on the ground and strolling through whilst the crunch of the leaves are so satisfying. Darkness falls earlier each day and the Christmas spirit creeps in slowly but surely. cold drinks are left behind in the summer and hot chocolate, lattes and teas are brought back. (because who wants brain freeze in the colder seasons?) i love dark lips and neutral eyes. gloves hats and scarves. (i live in the UK it's freezing in autumn) seeing your breath in the air. Halloween. pumpkins. candy apples. pumpkin spice candles (and of course latte).i love autumn walks, it feels as if you have an umbrella of golds, reds, oranges browns over your head, everywhere you walk- well at least if there's trees. i just love the atmosphere and obviously the scenery. the photo opportunities there is overwhelms me. the crisp wind with the delightful smell of pumpkin pie gushing through the air. i love autumn.
