My Everyday Makeup Routine| LAM

The title of this post is a tad contradictory as I don't have an everyday makeup look per se as I frequently like to switch things up. However, there are some things that constantly stay the same such as the fact that I always ensure my eyebrows are done and my liquid eyeliner is present. Foundation-wise, sometimes I wear it and at others time I just conceal my eyes and brows. For lip colour, it literally depends what mood I am in, as every couple of days I like to switch it up.

PRODUCTS USED:

Johnson's Baby Oil (A drop to moisturise face)
NARS Sheer Matte Foundation (Cadiz)
MAC Studio Finish Concealer (NC45)
Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil (Black Brown)
Maybelline Eyeshadow Quad Alt (Gold used for inner tearduct)
Maybelline Liner Express Liquid Eyeliner (Black)
Kiko Eyeliner Pencil (Ultramarine Blue)
Sleek Blush By 3 Palette Lace (Gold Shimmer + Coral Red shades used)
Fashion Fair Lipstick (First Lady) + Kelly Brook Lipgloss (Sand Dollar) + Sleek Lip Pencil (Bare Essential)

Real Techniques Core Collection (used Pointed Foundation Brush, Buffing Brush & Contour Brush)

As always until next time, stay blessed and beautiful dolls xoxo

#WirelessFestival: #ThrowbackThursday

Sorry I've been AWOL. I've been so busy lately,  I've been interning at Star Magazine and Elle Magazine, whilst house hunting.  Plus my laptop got sent away to repairs & I lost my blogging mojo for a bit, but I'm back again.

Fedora: Peacocks, Feather Earrings: New Look (Alt.), Bracelet: Primark Oxford St., Dress: ASOS, Bag: H & M Oxford St., Hunter Wellies: TK Maxx Lewisham
Last Saturday I broke my festival virginity and went to my first festival ever. I was so excited to see Drake, as he was supposed to be headlining, but unfortunately it wasn't to be and Kanye replaced him. I'm sure I don't need to tell you how disappointed I was with Kanye's performance, as he spent the latter half of it going on a paparazzi rant. Labrinth and Rudimental were good, but Wiz stole the show for me. Tbh, Wiz Khalifa was my headline act. He was simply amazing. Check out the picture I managed to get of him. Pretty good, huh? Although this picture came at a heavy cost, I lost my friend for 1.5 hours. #MADNESS


I officially think I have the festival bug and can't wait to go to a festival next year. Did any of you go to Wireless, or have you ever been? If so, what did you think of it?  Do any of you have any day festivals that you'd like to recommend me?
