Makeover time x

Hey hey hey hunnys

So a couple of days ago me and my friend Megan had a pamper evening during which I gave her a make over. I would say it went successfully since I am rubbish at doing make up on other people. I think Megan was a bit surprised as she doesn't normally wear much make up but I hope she liked it. To be honest she didn't have much choice hehe.

(She looks darker in the middle right photo but that's just my flash, this is all the final look)

The eyes are neutral but quite glammed up so are perfect for a night out or a posh dinner. The face is just toned down with a light coverage of foundation for a flawless finish and a lovely summery coral/orangey blush to plump up the cheeks. Then just a beautiful romantic pink lipstick which isn't too bright but highlights the lips. Now that I think about it this looks would be perfect for a date ;) 

Eyes 
BH cosmetics - 88 Colour Neutral eyeshadow palette
Urban Decay - Naked 2 eyeshadow palette
Bourjois - Liner Clubber ultra black liquid eyeliner
Barry M - Bold Waterproof eyeliner pencil  
Seventeen - Doll'd up mascara
Rimmel - Profession eyebrow pencil

Face
Rimmel - Perfect match foundation
Loreal - True match powder
Seventeen - Instant glow bronzing powder
BH cosmetics - 10 Colour professional blush palette

Lips
Rimmel - Kate lasting finish lipstick 05

If you want to know anymore info please let me know and leave me comments. I want to hear from you :)

Bye puppies

P.S. When I reviewed Doll'd up Mascara I didn't post a pic because my eyes were all dry and horrible. But how good does Megan's lashes look!?! I will post the same pic in the mascara review post as well, as her lashes look amazing with this product.

Good enough to eat x

Hey sugar puffs

Yesterday I bought loads of face masks from Superdrug because me and my friend were having a girly pamper evening. I gave her a make over which I will be featuring in my next post. However thought I would give a quick mention to the most gorgeous face mask ever...


White Chocolate Mousse Mask - Superdrug 99p or 4 for 3
This mask not only made my skin feel great but it smelt absolutely amazing. It really did smell like white chocolate mousse, I just wanted to eat it, yum yum. It has a really thick, creamy texture and just smooths straight over your face. It did sting a bit at first but I have just come over an allergic reaction and my face is very dry and sensitive at the moment so that maybe why. It was fine though after it started to dry and becomes quite hard which I love because it feels like its tightening your skin. After about 15 mins I washed it off with warm water and my skin felt lovely and smooth. I would definitely go out and buy this, I highly recommend it, I can't wait to use it again. 


Take a night this week, relax and have a good pamper. 
Treat yourself, you deserve it :)

Loads of kisses hunnys

P.S. Here's an embarrassing photo for you all hehe. I look so scary!!!!

Minty nails x

Hi darlings

I love to experiment with my nails and I am constantly changing them when I get bored. I get the acrylics done at a salon but do all the painting and embellishments myself at home. Here's a quick tutorial of how I done my nails last week. 



Firstly I applied 2 coats of BarryM polish in 304 Mint Green
Boots £2.99

    

Next I added a Lace nail art transfer (as you can see I used the middle sized one) which I got from Accessorize to the middle nail and filed around to cut the excess off
I think they were around £2.50


Lastly I added a black bow the middle nail. I bought these off of eBay for a couple of pounds and I stuck them on with nail glue which I also bought on eBay. Finish with top coat. 


Here is the final look. Great for spring/summer and the middle nail adds a little glam elegant touch. Let me know your thoughts and comments.


Thanks for reading sugar puffs

Chloe x

P.S. be very careful using nail glue as it is very strong. It can stick your fingers together in second and do not spill it onto fabric. I dropped the tiniest bit on my sofa and it started smoking and left a horrible hard stain which I can't remove.

e.l.f eyeliner x

Hi buttercups

This morning I tried out my new liquid eyeliner by e.l.f. Its a brown eyeliner which I don't normally buy as I always wear black. Also I have never used e.l.f make up before and saw it was quite cheap so I thought I would give it a go. 

e.l.f liquid eyeliner - coffee £1.50

Overall I wasn't that impressed with this eyeliner. I am very fussy when it comes to liquid eyeliner as I find it difficult to draw a straight line. This one had a felt tip which I didn't like, I find a brush is much easier and you can get a thinner line. Also the colour was a bit uneven as the first line you draw is very thick and wet, then it gets a lot better and smoother so maybe draw the first line on your hand and then apply it to your eye. Although it is cheap I wouldn't purchase this again, I would rather pay a few more pounds and get better quality. 

Best wishes my darlings

Chloe x

P.S. The best eyeliner I have ever tried and I use every day is Bourjois liner clubbing Ultra Black. Its so easy to apply and stays on the whole day.

I can BB your hero baby x

Hi there blossoms

As you all know I have had a reaction to something and now my face is very red, dry and flaky. I have been good and not tried to hide it with make up (Had to deal with so many people asking "What is wrong with your face?!" Rude much hehe). 
However  I was going out and wanted to calm down the redness so I tried using Garnier Miracle skin perfector BB cream. I have had this for ages but rarely use it, as I just like to put foundation on. I thought of using this as it wouldn't be as harsh as foundation, it would add moisture and calm down any marks and blemishes. 


Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream - Currently £6.99 in Boots/Superdrug (Usually £9.99)

Top - before
Bottom - after
You can't really tell from the pictures but it definitely worked! You might be able to make out that I had a dark ring below my eye on the cheekbone and a very red and sore nose.The BB cream relieved this and made it a lot less harsh, it also calmed down the appearance of the blemishes and beauty spots that I have on my check, making my face nearly all the same tone.  The best thing is that it didn't make the dry patches worse, it just gently moisturised them and didn't sting at all as some creams do. Generally I find that if you put foundation over dry skin it makes it a lot more noticeable, drier and flakes off after a short period of time. Overall I was very pleased with how my skin felt and looked while I had this product it on. My savior!!!! 


Lots of love my dolls

To the zoo x

Howdy my beauts

Thought I would show you my lovely bright tunic dress from http://www.missguided.co.uk/ that I wore to Colchester zoo a few weeks ago. The weather was beautiful so we were very lucky.

Dress - Klair Multi Aztec Cut Out Tunic size s/m - Miss guided £11.99
Sunglasses - Accessorize £15
Coat - really old
My lovely camera satchel - eBay £18.68
Shoes - Primark £4.99

Excuse my boyfriends random photography (bottom left) but its actually a good pic to show off how different this dress is. The colours are very bright and in your face but as long as you dress it simply, then anyone can pull this off. I normally go for dull colours like black, white and grey but I am trying to make more of an effort to get some colour in my life, so I thought this dress was the perfect start :) I don't do half measures!
I hope you guys like it and please let the weather gets a bit better again so everyone can get their lovely bright dresses out. 

Thanks for reading my blossoms

Chloe x

P.S. I am always telling people I'm not ginger but I think in this photo I really do look it haha. I'm trying to get to a golden blonde colour but its not really working. I am naturally dark brown... any idea's people???

"I'm not allergic to anything"...

Help my angels

Look at my poor face. 


It looks like I have been beaten up! I don't know what has caused it and I'm afraid to try out any of my new make up just in case it gets worse. I am smothering it in moisturiser but doesn't seem to be getting any better. Basically its very red, dry and sore, and when I touch it loads of dead skin flakes off (sorry I know its disgusting). Ahhh help me please! If any of you have any idea's leave me a comment, it would be much appreciated :)

All my love beauts

Chloe x

P.S. Sorry for looking so rough and the bad lighting. I am at work and its so bright in here because we are on the seafront. 

Best dress I have ever bought! x

Hey chicksss

A few weekends ago I went out for my best gals birthday and thought I would tell you about my dress because I absolutely love it. 

Quontum - £35

My dress was from http://www.quontum.uk.com/ and its absolutely stunning. I think it was originally £60 but I bought it in the sale for £35! Happy days :) Unfortunately it doesn't look like this style is on their website anymore but they have loads of very similar ones. Their dresses are so unique and I got so many compliments from people wondering where I got my dress from. This dress definitely gets you noticed.



Thanks my angels

Chloe x

P.S. Meggie Moo's dress is from Miss Guided ;) and is also very beautiful. She doesn't know how much it cost 

Flutter those lashes x

Hey my sweeties 

I got my Boots advantage card coupons through :) and I had one which let me purchase Seventeen's new mascara called doll'd up for just £2 (usually £6.29) so I thought why not!


I was so impressed by this mascara, not only is the bottle so chic and cute, the product itself is one of the best I've ever used. The brush is like a comb and it grasps onto all your lashes pulling them up and extending them. It coats every single one evenly and is even great on the bottom set. I'm not just saying this to big up Seventeen because I don't normally use their make-up, this is the truth and I would definitely purchase this mascara again even for the full price. 

Let me know if you have any questions or comments about mascara or anything. Give me your favourite product recommendations so I can go out and try them. 


Love you chicks

Chloe x

P.S. Sorry I haven't added a photo of me wearing the mascara but I've had an allergic reaction to something and my face does not look very pretty at the moment. Its very dry, red and flaking :( I need to find out what's causing it, hopefully its not my new make up. As soon as it clears up I'll add a photo and let you know what caused my reaction. 


Here's a pic of my friend wearing Seventeen's Doll'd up Mascara. Her lashes look wonderful!
What do you think?

Barbie nails x

Hi my little puddings

Check out my new nails :D I love them


I got them done last night and when I got home I stuck the little bows on. They will do that for you at the salon but I ordered a load on eBay because they are a lot cheaper. They are only a couple of pound and you get about 60 in loads of different colours, just add a little bit of nail glue (which I also get on eBay) and stick on. If you have any questions don't be afraid to ask and I would love to hear your comments. 

Bye for now my sweeties

P.S. Tweet me pics of your cool nail ideas, I am always looking for inspiration https://twitter.com/closbeautyspot

BBBBronzer x

 Hello my babes 

Today I tried out my new bronzer which I bought from Boots for £4.59. Its by Seventeen and its called Instant Glow wash off bronzing powder in medium bronze. 


The colour is really nice but does take a few coats to actually appear. I tried to do a swatch on my arm but it was not coming out that well so some people might be put off in the shop.  But I'm glad to say it comes out a lot clearer on your face and is great for contouring and creating cheekbones! 


Before
After
I put a tiny dusting all over my face over my foundation, then pouted to find my cheekbones and contoured. Then I added a bit of blusher over the top and on the apples of my cheeks. For the price I would say it was quite reasonable, however I am not sure if I would purchase again. I would probably keep looking around and maybe come back to it if I don't find something better. Any questions let me know and I would be happy to hear if you have a good bronzer you would recommend.

Laters my little puddings

Cheeky Harverster x

 Hey my hun's

Thought I might do the odd post about my outfits because I have so many clothes that they are spilling out my wardrobes. I can't help it, I know I have too much but I still carry on buying. I won't do this everyday though because during the week I just wear boring clothes to work. I don't have to dress smart so I just wear the first thing I grab. 


Hat - Miss Guided £12.99
Crop top - Miss Guided £6.99
Skirt - Miss Guided £14.99
Socks - Primark £1.50
Boots - Primark £8
Jacket was bought years ago 


Never realised how much stuff I buy from Miss Guided hehe. Anyways I had a lovely dinner with my gorgeous best friend, we love a Harvester especially the salad, so we go there all the time and the outfit went down very well. I think wearing a hat makes you stand out from the crowd and is proper head turner. Its quite a statement piece but I always think don't be afraid to wear something different to everyone else. 

Thanks for reading my babes

Chloe x 

P.S. I always eat the same thing at the harvester... Chicken, chips and gravy. And you can't beat the rocky horror for dessert ;)
