S/OOTD & ANNOUNCEMENT ! MUST READ TO UNDERSTAND

ANNOUNCEMENT

From the 30th April until the 1st June I will be taking a break from the internet & blogging.

After that, I will be studying for my Summer Exams which are at the end of May.
I will be back on the 1st June to blog once again !
Good luck to everyone with any end of year exams like me or state exams like the Junior Cert, Leaving Cert, GCSES, A Levels, etc. .

Peachy Glow Make-Up

Soo to incorporate with my full May's posts in like just one night, I've decided to post a make-up tutorial on getting a peach couloured look.


Apply  slightly tanned, but still very fair coloured foundation to your face.
If you are very pale skinned like me & have red undertones like me, Brush over a light brushing of bronzer over the foundation as you don't need the peach making your undertones even more prominent than they already are.
Using a peachy blusher (or failing that lightist pink you can find.) brush the blusher over your cheek area & on the edges of your face around your ears.


Smudge some peach eyeshadow onto your baby finger & apply the eyeshadow to your eyes.
Apply a slight bit of brown mascara & depending on how pale your skin is, Take a very risky risk by applying some coral pink eye-pencil !


Now for your lips, Apply the palest shade of peach lipstick you can find.
When I mean the palest, I mean the shade nearest to clear !
If you have dark skin, Apply some baby pink lipstick under this to get the peachiest shade of lips possible.


Remember ! The darker you skin the pinkier peach shade you can get away with !
Unforch for me, It means a more creamy colour :((


Hope these ideas inspire you for the month of May !

Poppy Flower Make-Up

I was thinking of a make-up look that would apply to the months April & May, because I'll be studying for my summer exams during May & I won't be blogging.
I then remember the nuisance of those poppies that grew during late April & May last year & decided to do a poppy flower make-up tutorial.


Keep your foundation as pale & natural as possible & if you have very red cheeks that you're usually more inclined to cover don't cover them completely !


Using a cotton bud (The one you stick in your ear, but you're not suppose to !) , Apply some silver eyeshadow under-neath your eye.
Yes, You could use a silver metallic eye-pencil, but it won't have the same layered effect.
Apply silver eyeshadow to the crease / socket & brow-bone areas of the eye.
This is the large section above the actual eye.
For the poppy effect, Using a black liquid eyeliner pen, Dot some dots onto the area that you applied the silver-eyeshadow to.
Use the liquid eye-liner, To apply winged-eyeliner to the usual area you would apply liquid eye-liner to & leave a trail of dots at the end of the wing.


And then obviously for lips, Use a blue-toned (Doesn't make your teeth look yellow.) red lipstick.
Don't forget to use  lip-liner before applying the lipstick to make applying easier !


Haven't tried these out yet, but when I do, I'll be sure to tell you's all as soon as possible !
I can just imagine the look in my head !

High-Street Lookalikes : Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift's style is soo casual & pretty, but where on Earth would we get her exact buys ?
That's when you hit the High-Street Lookalikes !







Soo chic & classy.
Buy the high-street blazer (pictured back facing.) in Topshop for £40 & the dress for  £24 in New Look.







Once again, Swifty strikes again !
The dress she wears is the type of dress you could wear during the day or night.
I love H! by Henry Holland's black daisy chain dress which looks pretty simular.
It's available in Debenhems for 34 EURO.


WANT HER MAKE-UP LOOK ?

Taylor is known for her red lipstick, Winged black liquid eyeliner & flawless foundation.
Before applying lipstick, Line the outside of your lips with a lipliner that either matches or is near in shade to the shade of the lipstick.
If you want your foundation to be flawless, Apply with a damp clean brush to your face.
Always make sure your hand is completely straight line when applying eyeliner to your eyes.

My Week In Pictures.

Soo this week, I went into town with my friends & saw these really cute teddies like the ones from In The Night Gardens & then we got Dr. Pepper's & they were lovely like cherry  
coke, but they were very filling soo I didn't get to finish my can.

Then on Wednesday I was in Dublin to get my photo taken.
I had this lovely macaroon to eat in a coffee shop.
It was coloured a light purple & it was just soo yummy.

Then of course Midnight was at the vet.
And we returned her to the mini farm today.
