Matching eyes and lips


A few posts have gone by now where I've either mentioned a red lip or a red eye but haven't gone that step further to mention them together, until today. Is it a thing that people do? I remember when it was a taboo to match your make up in such a way, however feel that now we have more room to play around and try out things that back in the day were a no go. 

When going for a red lip I've been choosing to prime my lips before starting my make up with the Models Own lip balm in Blackberry. It's a balm however stays put as a bit of a stain and starts off your berry lip. Doing exactly what you need it to do its perfect before the real deal. Talking of real deal, the Mac lip pencil in Beet has rocketed to quite a well used product in my collection (having had to sharpen it 3 times already since I bought it). it's creamy, easy to apply and stays put through food and drink. If I'm feeling more of a deep red instead of berry I'm popping on the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution in Red Carpet. This again is a great stayer however takes slightly longer to apply because of how matte it is but is still gorgeous to wear. 

Moving onto eyes I'm rotating between either Mac's Cranberry or Antiqued (both of which have featured on the blog before). Cranberry is the brighter of the two and really enjoy this on the eye alone with Beet as they have a real pop of colour about them. Antiqued I sometimes pop in the crease but alone looks great with the Charlotte Tilbury lipstick. I also like to wear the Maybelline cream shadow in Pomegranate which looks very similar to Antiqued on the lid however just a tad brighter.

Are you a matcher? Give it a go! I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

  1. We love the berry eye and lip look! Sometimes we like to match out lips and eyes too. It's such an easy way to tie the whole look together

    1. Yeah I agree! So many people don't like matching but it gives such a different effect xo

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

How To Read More & What I Read In May

*gifted items and affiliate links Hi mates, it's been a while!  So, I've had quite a few requests to create a blog post all about how I read so much. Don't get me wrong there are loads of people out there that read way more than me. But I average 4 books a month, however with lockdown in the UK I've been able to rack up my monthly average.  Let's just jump straight in to how I read as much as I do. 1 ~ Choose books you WANT to read This sounds super obvious, however I myself have been known to follow book trends and pick up a book because it's all over the gram, or because my favourite influencer has told me to read it. Doing so can result in books you just don't get in the flow of reading and books you don't want to actively pick up.  Know what genres you like to read. Know what authors you like and do some digging to make sure you pick wisely. Sometimes you will be disappointed with a book that you feel you should of enjoye

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
