Demystifying Eyeliner

Different Styles of Eyeliner

I love eyeliner, it’s wonderful for finishing off a look. Whether you want a dramatic cat-eye or extra smokiness along the lash line. However, there are different types of eyeliner and different ways of using it. This can be confusing and often off-putting. I avoided eyeliner for years, it looked just that little too hard for me to master. Over the years I have tried many different styles and techniques, although I am no way an expert this series I’ve started to help you if you feel that eyeliner is that little step too far out of your comfort zone.

Experimenting with Primark Makeup

What’s this? two blog posts in a single week? I failed to post last week, now I’m making that up today. There are so many options when it comes to choosing makeup. Especially when you first start wearing it. I wouldn’t have wanted to spend loads when I first started experimenting and learning.

This is where Primark comes in. They have a range of makeup that is affordable, vegan and cruelty-free.

Unusual Date Ideas

Since this month is February and everywhere is all about Valentines Day. I thought I’d join in and share some unusual date ideas with you. Since while I’m writing this I encountered a wonderful brain freeze moment. I reached out to other bloggers. Through that, I have compiled this list.

1: Make Your Own Pizza.

Making your own is a cheap alternative to a takeaway. If you don’t want to wait for the dough to rise (or forgot about that part as I do…often) be sure to check out this No Rise Pizza Dough Recipe.

It’s that time again, the first blog post of the month. I like using this post to set goals for the next few weeks since I find that I stick to them better when I write them down and share them. So without further ado, here are my February Goals.

It makes sense to start with my blog first. This month I don’t want to change much. I want to stick to my posting schedule and writing posts in advance.

Reading Challenge for 2020

If you hadn’t figured it out by now, I love reading. It is something that I’ve always done and will continue to do. For the past few years, I’ve taken part in the Goodreads reading challenge, which in essence is where you pick a number of books you want to read that year and track your progress.

This year I want to try something different. Of course,

Everyday Makeup – for when you don’t want a full face.

This is the first time I’ve written a post like this, it won’t be the last, so please bear with me as I stumble through my first few. The other day I created an everyday makeup look for my friend. Today I’m going to share it with you today. The one request I had was to make her eyes pop. Since she has blue eyes I used the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette as it has the warm tones that would do this!

A Year of Bullet Journaling

This January marks a year since I started my first successful Bullet Journal. Over the years, I’ve tried to use the system to keep myself organised, however, this year it just clicked.

During this time I have learnt a lot, firstly I can’t draw! Before I started I spent time researching on Instagram and Pinterest and watching many of Amanda Rach Lee’s videos on YouTube. Even though they were all extremely inspiring there was no point me try to copy their ideas too closely.

A New Chance: My Quote for 2020

Can you believe that we are now in 2020! It’s a new year, a new century. It’s the start of something new. A new chance for everything. Just before Christmas, I graduated from a make-up course so it is the beginning of everything new. A new challenge for me, and a new career. I was setting up my bullet journal for 2020 and I found a quote for my opening page,
