Knee High Boots

One of the best things about Autumn/Winter is knee high boots.

Every year the over the knee style is becoming more and more popular and I think A/W '15 has really stepped it up!

Everyone is wearing them and there are so many styles and colours out there, covering all budget ranges...

Style Picks

I'm going to start something new on my blog... I spend so much time on social media and save so many pictures I love I thought it would be nice to start sharing them with you...

All pictures can be found on my Pinterest here

As you'll be able to see, it's very ripped jeans and black leather themed!

Drugstore Base Essentials

The base is the key to any makeup look, whether it's a light base for a vampy lip and dark eye look or a heavier base for an ultra glam look, the foundations of the makeup is one of the most important parts to get right.

I love experimenting with makeup looks and spending my free time trying out new colours and designs, but one thing I always tend to keep the same is the products that contribute to my base.

L'Oreal has claimed the main spot in my makeup drawer as my base brand of choice, with an exception from this for a brilliant concealer! Here are the 4 products I turn too no matter what the occasion:

L'Oreal True Match Crayon Corrector - in 20 Vanilla - This is a super bendable, creamy concealer stick that I like to use before my foundation to even out my skin tone and colour correct my under eye area where I have some slight discolouration. The product is really creamy and once drawn on blends out really nicely, especially when blended with your fingers as the heat from your body makes it even more creamy and light. 

L'Oreal True Match Foundation - in 3.R/3.C Beige Rose - This has been my go to foundation for about 3 years now, mainly down to Nicole Guerriero who raved about it in a few of her tutorials. I tried it and haven't looked back since. It is super bendable but has a really decent coverage, I can apply it lightly and it covers my skin enough to give me a really natural soft looking complexion or I can build it and get a heavy coverage that stays put all night without looking cakey. This is my go to foundation for every look! The packaging has changed recently, it now comes in a more squared bottle which I really like.

L'Oreal True Match Perfecting Concealer - in 2 Vanilla - This isn't the best coverage concealer, but I love using it as a brightening touch under my eyes. I normally add it onto my underage over my Maybelline concealer (below) before blending it all together with my beauty blender. This combination gives me the perfect coverage and brightness to completely cover my under eye discolouration.

Maybelline Instant Anti-Age Eraser Eye - in Light - This may be the odd one out of the bunch, being Maybelline, but it is by no means the least impressive. This concealer is absolutely amazing! I love concealers that are creamy enough to blend out in a triangle under my eye without leaving it look cakey whilst also making sure it cover the area I am trying to conceal. This does exactly that. This has an amazing level of coverage, and although I add another concealer over the top to add brightness, this works really well on it's own too! I love the applicator as it is like a blending sponge that the product comes through meaning it is applied really softly onto the delicate area of your eye. I can't say enough good things about this, it has to be my most recommended product to my friends!
Have you got any products you use all the time and love? Leave a comment below and I'll try them out!
