5 Beauty Favourites

ciate, sleek makeup, nars, affect cosmetics, beautyuk

Ciate Fierce Flicks Eyeliner || I haven't actually used this as of yet, but I know I will do soon and it looked nice in with this flat lay image haha. I've just actually used eyeliner before as my eyes get really itchy and I would end up looking like a bloody panda in this heat (just the thought of that made me giggle!).

Sleek Makeup Eyeshadow Palette || In this palette I have two favourites that I tend to go for everytime I use it, I use a light matt brown shade first and blend that in well, and then over the top of that I use a little bit of gold colour just to add a bit more of an effect to it. It's a subtle look that suits me well I think, I will have to take a picture of it next time I do it and post to my Instagram stories.

Nars Powder Foundation || I personally have always preferred powder foundations over liquid foundations, mainly because I find my skin tends to go oily really quickly and powder foundations last longer on me. I don't use it everyday especially in this hot weather there's just no point really is there?!

Affect Cosmetics - Matt Effect Loose Rice Powder || I have been using this powder just over the top of my Nars powder foundation if my face starts to look a bit shiny in places, I don't use it over my entire face but mainly on my T-Zone area as I find that's where it gets shiny throughout the day.

Brushes || Everyone has a favourite brush right? Well I do haha and these two are my favourite ones to use. I know some people have a specific brush for everything, but I actually don't own that many brushes so yeah I can't do that. These are the two I have been reaching for everytime lately.


July Glossybox: Unboxing

July Glossybox 

I always look forward to seeing what is in my glossybox every month, some of them I love and some of them I ain't that keen on, This month's box is a "under the sea" themed box and I think my favourite thing about it this month is the actual box itself......not the actual contents, I'm just not a fan of the products this month at all.

Senhor Do Bonfim - Sea Water Hair Spray
I have never heard of this brand or product before seeing it in this months box, I can't wait to try it out though and see what effect it has on my hair. Hopefully it has a good effect on my hair as I really like the sound of what this does.

Exuvance - Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish
I'm gutted I won't be able to use this product as at the moment I'm having to stick to a facial wash that has been suggested by my doctor. I may try this in the future and if I do I will most likely do a blog post about my experience with it.

Oriflame - The One 5-in-1 Wonder Lash Mascara
Apart from the toothpaste this is the only thing I actually was happy with this month, I'm hoping there will be more makeup products in the future and apparently there is in the August box, but will have to wait and see what they will be.

Inuwet - Cheek Shell Brush
Another brush in Glossybox this month, I'm pretty sure the amount of brushes we get I'm going to end up with a full collection of something at some point haha. I guess the look of this brush will be good in flatlay photography though right?

Regenerate - Enamel Science Advanced Toothpaste
This is the product that I was most intrigued by this month, as I've never heard of this brand before or even of a toothpaste that can help to restore the enamel on your teeth. I have already been using this and so far I'm defintley liking it and it doesn't have a horrible taste to it either.

Hawaiin Tropic - Duo Defence Sun Lotion SPF 30
I wasn't too keen on seeing this in this month's box, as due to cream I have to use of a night time for my face I need to use a higher factor SPF. So this will be going in my little donate box that I have in my drawers that every few months I hand out to family members to go through.



My Netflix Binge

netflix, movies, tv series

I have really got back into loving Netflix again these past few weeks, so I thought I would let you know what exactly I have been loving and watching just lately. Some of these are old favourites of mine, and some are ones that I have just recently found.

The Vampire Diaries
I kind of lost track with this for a little while and didn't watch any of it for ages, but now that I have got back into it I have been watching at least 2 episodes of it every night before I go to sleep. I'm currently on season 6: episode 13, so I'm a bit behind on it but am catching up with it slowly.

Safe Haven
This is one of my favourite films that I could watch over and over again!
"When a mysterious woman arrives in a small North Carolina town, she begins a new life but remains haunted by a terrifying secret"
It's one of those films that have you gripped right from the start, by the end of this movie I was in actual tears as the ending of the film comes out of nowhere and it's not how you expect it to end at all.

Haters Back Off
This one of those programmes that I like to just switch on when I want something on in the background whilst I'm doing other stuff, It can be funny but then also cringy at the same time! I've already watched season 1 a while ago, but have just recently started on season 2 now.

and lastly

Magic Mike
Channing Tatum! Need I say more haha, I had never seen this film up until a little while ago but it's a really good film and would happily watch it again lol. Everyone loves a bit of Channing Tatum don't they, I've liked him as an actor since the first Step Up film came out, and can't believe I waited so long to watch Magic Mike.

Are there any films you would recommend me to watch on Netflix?
