Hey Guys, 

So Christmas is on the way and I am so very excited. It's one of my favourite times! Since it's getting close Christmas fashion is popping up everywhere. This year there seems to be a lot of sequins/flashy items around which I think is great because it's that bit different. 

I went onto two of my favourite/affordable online shops, and Misguided and picked out some of my favourite sequin bits to share with you all. I love all of these pieces as they aren't extremely out there but still let you dress to impress this winter season.

What do you guys think of the sequin trends? Love it or hate it?

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation

Hey Guys, 

Awhile ago when searching for a new foundation, even though I had a great love for Revlon Colour Stay, I came across Rimmel's Match Perfection. I thought I would give it a go even though no foundation really perfectly matches my skin. The reason I chose to go with another foundation is because Revlon's colour stay doesn't do my colour so I have mix two of them and since they are rather pricey I thought it was best to try find another. 

I went with rimmel as I really trust their foundations since using their 'Wake Me Up' one. So seeing this as less than €10 I just had to try it. Now just like Wake me up it does give the face a bit of a glow. It is also very light weight so if you don't like a heavy foundation you should try this. 

I'm not going to say this foundation matched my skin perfectly because well, it didn't. Now don't get me wrong it's not extremely obvious so with a bit of blending it looks fine. 

I think I will repurchase this again because I really liked how it made my skin looks and doesn't feel horribly heavy on my skin. 

Have you tried this foundation? Let me know in the comments.

The Tartan Dress

 Dress - Primark
Boots - New Look
Clutch - Primark 

 Hey Guys, 

The moment I saw this dress I knew it had to be mine! It really reminds of the uniform's they use in Home and Away which me and my sister used to want for ours! So now even though I'm not in school anymore and tartan is so very in, why not indulge in the fact that this dress really works? 

Collars are something I love so it adds to the fact that this dress may simply become one of my favourites. The little bow added in makes the outfit look so complete without needing to add any extra jewellery. 

The boots I chose are simply so the don't take away from the dress itself but the little straps don't make them look extremely boring.

Top 5: Mascaras

Hey Guys, 

Mascara's are literally my best friend. I have so many and yet I always tend to buy more to try out. I just can't help myself. Even though I have plenty and still buy more I do have my favourites. On days when I don't feel like wearing any makeup I do tend to pop a bit of mascara on just because it makes my eyes look that bit brighter meaning I look more awake and less like a walking zombie. So here are a list of my top five:

This is 100% my all time favourite mascara. The way it make's lashes look is perfect. The curved brush and even spaced bristles make the application so easy and with zero clumps. The thing I love is that this is only a drugstore brand mascara and it possibly one of the best I have used. For just a price of €9.99 how could you not want to try it?

This mascara is great for making lashes pop. It makes them so much thicker and longer. For me this mascara is great for making dramatic eye looks complete as lashes always make a look so much better. The brush for this mascara is actually thicker than a lot of brushes but for me this just adds to the effect. Available from all drugstores at €8.99

I am a huge Soap and Glory fan. Every single one of their products is fantastic and does everything it's supposed too. Not something you find with many products. This mascara is no different. It has your standard wand with bristles separated evenly for that perfect application. The formula makes lashes stay curved all day without any worry. It is available at bigger boots stores and online for around €12

This is one of my pricier Mascara's coming it at €15. This is probably one of benefit's most known mascaras. I first recieved this as a gift one Christmas and have loved it since, repurchasing it once or twice after that.  Just like Soap and Glory's thick and fast it has a standard mascara wand which makes lashes look more defined. If you are a benefit fan then I'm sure you have already tried and loved this.

This is another one of my ultimate favourites. (Obviously because it's in my top five!) I never really liked the look my normal mascara's gave to my bottom lashes so when I heard about this I just had to get my hands on it. The little brush makes it so easy to apply to the small lashes and leaves no clumps or mess. Even though it's slightly pricey at €16 I feel it is completely worth every penny as it makes bottom lashes look sleek and perfected!

Have you used any of the above Mascaras? Are any of them your favourites?

Everyday Work Makeup

Hey Guys, 

Getting up early and trying to look presentable for work is one of the toughest things. The effort is just to much, but it's either that or scare half the customers away. My attempt is literally keep everything to a minimum.

Throw on a bit of foundation. I use Revlon's Colourstay as it gives great coverages and stays on all day so there is no need to worry about it coming off, then Rimmel's hide the blemish concealer to hide those oh so obvious dark circles. To make sure it holds I use Rimmel's stay matte powder. Ta-da face done!

Eyes are literally the quickest job. They don't even take me five minutes. Some eyeliner, (Collections extreme liner) Mascara, (Fearne Cottons Midnight Lashes) and brows, ( Benefits big beautiful eyes darkest shade) with clear mascara so there are no fly away hairs.

For work I don't think there is a need for a heap of makeup unless you work somewhere where it is essential, or unless you prefer too. If my morning wasn't so rushed and I didn't prefer those extra minutes in bed, my makeup would probably look that little bit nicer but for now it's just a simple dust of items onto the face.

(P.s. I promise I'm going to get back on track with blogging. With work and having blogging block I just haven't wanted to sit down and write.)
