Sunshine and Strobe β˜‰β˜‰β˜‰β˜‰β˜‰β˜‰β˜‰β˜‰β˜‰β˜‰β˜‰β˜‰β˜‰β˜‰
Wanted to try using some fresh sunlight pics instead so let me know what you think! I'm quite proud of the way I managed to get the shadow projected onto the powders to show the name πŸ˜† But looking at the pic i think the placement is sloppy. I think that's down to how the sunlight affected the colours of the product so I had to move them into a weird and asymmetrical position.. Anyway if this pic doesnt do well I'll pull it later on. 😩
These are the @lagirlcosmeticsuk @lagirlcosmetics Strobe Lite Strobing Powders in 40 Watt, 70, 80 and 90 Watt.

The Snow Child
❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️
A little makeup mess and MOTD too! The mess came from my indecision over lip colour πŸ˜‚

Book: This pristine and beautiful looking book was part of my charity shop book haul. The cover is a luxurious matte deep blue and even the spine looks uncracked! One of the many praises on the back: "it's the harsh beauty of the landscape that gives this stunning first novel it's unique shape and atmosphere" Interestingly it includes a short story too "Little Daughter of the Snow".. I've never heard of this book although it was a Sunday Times bestseller. It appears to be a love story (EDIT: I have since been told its a story of a mother and fathers love..) so let's see how I get on with that. It's in the TBR list as I now have the next book club novel to read aswell as trying to finish IT (I'm up to the Third Interlude!)

Pray for the victims of terror attacks not just in Manchester but all over the world every day.

I was a kid when the IRA bombs went off in the 1990s and remember that feeling of dread and fear and seeing all the damage and destruction.

Classic Horror
πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€
The Black House by Paul Theroux. A little classic horror in a 1970's paperback edition. I swear I wasn't just attracted to this because of the similar title to the King and Straub novel Black House πŸ˜‰
It is described as a gothic tale of possession. I had a quick look and it seems to have quite mixed reviews which makes me more curious as to which side of the line I'll fall on when reading it. β˜†β˜† DO YOU LIVE OR DIE BY BOOK/MOVIE REVIEWS OR ARE YOU WILLING TO TAKE A LOOK FOR YOURSELF??β˜†β˜†

Budget Face Essentials
πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡
I've just recently started using the @lagirlcosmetics Pro Face Matte Pressed Powder and I quite like it. I have the colour Medium Beige and it's quite strange in that it seems to go on darker than it looks but as you buff it out it becomes invisible. It feels very light in texture which is good as I don't like a heavy powdery finish. It's quite the bargain at a bit over a fiver (Β£5 for my non-Brits out there πŸ˜‰)
I'm also loving my @morphebrushes fan brush M143 deluxe fan brush for applying contour a la @nikkitutorials. It's rather pricier at around Β£9 but for a good face brush that washes well and doesn't shed it's good value as it should last a few years.
Last but not least is my @makeuprevolution beauty sponge which is a much firmer texture to the good ole @beautyblender but just as effective as it retains moisture well and blends easily.

Morphe 35O Shimmer ShadowsπŸ’‘πŸ’‘πŸ’‘πŸ’‘πŸ’‘πŸ’‘πŸ’‘πŸ’‘πŸ’‘πŸ’‘πŸ’‘πŸ’‘πŸ’‘πŸ’‘πŸ’‘πŸ’‘
Swatches of just the shimmer shades from the @morphebrushes 35O palette. These are so intense almost foiled, although I will admit some shades are more pigmented than others but only marginally so. The quality really is excellent. This is one swipe with a finger and you can not see the black tattoo underneath the colour at all! Amazing! I got this from @cultbeauty for around Β£25 and it is hands down one of the best palettes I own. I do wish the packaging was better but otherwise love it. I have 2 bridal makeups to do this year and I will be putting this in my kit for definite. (I only do makeup for close friends and family by the way!)

Book: I am still (still) reading IT by Stephen King. I am thoroughly enjoying it but I've just been too tired or not had time to read it on a regular basis. I would say I'm just over half way through now. I'm loving how King can really keep and build the scares in such a long book. The tension is palpable between the Losers Club and Pennywise yet there is still half the book left! My favourite part of the book (Don't worry no spoilers) so far has to be Mike Hanlon's story about his father's experience in the armed forces and particularly the fire at a local bar called the Black Spot. This story within a story honestly blew me away I just fricking loved it!! I also managed to score the paperback version so may switch to that as so much easier to read in bed.

Slay All Day
πŸ“ΈπŸ“ΈπŸ“ΈπŸ“ΈπŸ“ΈπŸ“ΈπŸ“ΈπŸ“ΈπŸ“ΈπŸ“ΈπŸ“ΈπŸ“ΈπŸ“ΈπŸ“Έ
I've been dying to try out @gerardcosmetics Slay All Day setting mist. The flavours all sounded so enticing: peach, jasmine, cucumber.. what I did not expect was to really dislike all the flavours bar one - Green Tea. So this is the one I ended up with. I was desperate to also pick up a lipstick and liquid lipstick but I had to force myself to put products down as I had majorly broken my spending ban. I instead picked up just one lonely lipliner Sugar and Spice *sob* 😭 But wow what a lipliner! So beautiful and top top quality as well as being really long so hopefully will last ages.

The Adamantine Palace
🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍
"One man wants to rule the wealthy Empire. He is ready to poison the king as he did his father, murder his lover and bed her daughter. Is he fit to be king? Unknown to him, a dragon is on the loose. Returned to full intelligence and fury, it could wreak havoc.."

I picked up this little beauty at a charity shop and mostly just loved the look of the cover, and the Joe Abercrombie endorsement! I still haven't finished Rogues (I know, I know.. πŸ™ˆ) but if I ever do I will definitely choose this as my next fantasy novel.
Has anyone out there read it yet? Let me know below ‡️‡️‡️‡️‡️‡️‡️

Beach Body
β˜‰β˜‰β˜‰β˜‰β˜‰β˜‰β˜‰β˜‰β˜‰β˜‰β˜‰β˜‰β˜‰β˜‰
The weather is finally perking up in the UK so I wanted to share my fave body lotions to get moisturised, smooth and supple skin. These are what I would describe as "special occasion" body lotions if you are heading out for the day or night, as they either contain some kind of sparkle, glow or rich scent: β˜‰@bathandbodyworks At the Beach 24 hour moisture body cream. This is a beautifully scented lotion that is rich yet quickly absorbed. The scent is very powerful and smells almost exactly like Seychelles from @thewhitecompany. Fruity, coconut cream, pina coladas and sun cream. Basically the scent of a tropical holiday. I want everything from this range!! 😣 Thanks to @ninasolanki for kindly gifting this to me πŸ˜™
β˜‰@thebodyshop Honey Bronze oil which contains shimmer and a subtle bronze glow on the skin. I love this oil especially the fresh honey scent it imparts. But why is it in this packaging which makes it almost impossible to dispense??
β˜‰@bootsuk No.7 Body Shimmer Aftersun. This is described as an after sun conditioning cream for the skin but it is essentially just a beautiful moisturiser. It contains fine gold shimmer to give a subtle sparkle in sunlight. It is such a lovely formula as it sinks in but doesn't disappear into nothingness. Instead you get great moisturisation for a decent length of time. The packaging is perfect as it has a pump and feels quite expensive.
β˜†β˜†What do you use to get your summer glow on??β˜†β˜†

Trying out a new black background for this absolutely mind blowing liquid highlight by @coverfx @coverfx_uk It is in the shade Moonlight and boy does this thing glow! I used it on its own with no powder over the top and honestly I've never had such a metallic shiny highlight as bold as this. The great thing is that using my beauty blender I was easily able to sheer it out. It set itself so no smearing and no ruining the makeup underneath. A genius product. If you love a good highlight but are dubious of liquid ones try this!

Gold highlighters can be hit or miss. Depending on your skintone and how much yellow pigment it contains you can look like Goldfinger or JLo πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
I'm a yellow toned NC43 so even fairly yellow gold highlights can work although as they start to lean more bronze/champagne that's when I really glow!
These 4 highlights are beautifully yellow gold sheeny dewy goodness and I love how they all have a textured finish in the pan as they look incredibly appetising.

Homage to Anastasia
🌍🌍🌍🌍🌍🌍🌍🌍🌍🌍🌍🌍
This is my little shout out to @anastasiabeverlyhills founder Anastasia Soare. A perfect example of making it to the top no matter where you are from.
β˜†
β˜†
Book: A cute charity shop find of a book called The Book of the World 1972. It is an encyclopedia of facts about all the countries in the world as at 1972 so of course as my tribute to Anastasia I located Romania ( or Rumania as it is spelled in the book) as this is where she emigrated from in the 1990s before going on to become the massively successful person she is today. β˜†

Tolstoy and a Revolution

I was tagged by the acclaimed @thingsthatkeepmeupatnight for #bigbooks and of course Tolstoy's masterpiece doesn't get much bigger in fact, seems to be the very definition of a "big" book. I haven't read it yet as frankly it's a little intimidating but one day I will climb my Everest πŸ—»πŸ˜‰
β˜†
β˜†
β˜†
What to pair with such a famous book? I went for @makeuprevolution rose gold collection for the "big" impact this brand has made on the budget beauty world. These Sun Kiss highlighters, Renaissance lipsticks and contour brushes are top quality.
