Get salon quality nails at home ~ NailHUR && 65% DISCOUNT

Hello my loves! 

So in this video i am showing you how i achieved this gorgeous nail look using nails from the brand NailHUR! They are a brand that offer high quality nails at an affordable price. So you do not need to book an appointment with your salon as you can do this in the comfort of your own home. You can switch up your nail style with the variety of nails available at NAILHUR and even if you like to change them up even more you can even paint over them! This is a much cheaper and easier alternative to a manicure!

So far i have used these nails for around 5 days. They were super easy and quick to apply and they have not budged once. With cheaper nails, you find they fall off or snap easily but these do not! The glue has adhered the nails to my own with such strength, but have still not damaged my nails!

Glam Halloween Makeup tutorial: Mermaid PART 1/2




Hey lovers!

So Halloween is just over a month away and I wanted to get up 2 types of videos. 1 video was going to be a glamorous non scary fancy dress look, which is of course this one, and also a gore look with blood n shiiii.... I stepped out of my comfort zone with these two looks and created them from scratch and its safe to say I am so glad I did. I loved creating both looks and found that actually I can make these things when I put in time and effort. I wanted both of these looks to be affordable!
 
I wanted  to create something glam, pretty and glittery and I feel like this look incorporated just that. I wanted to stick to the blue, purple and pink basis with glitter. Of course if you recreate this look you can tailor it to your own colours but these were super girly.
 

Hair

♥  To create the dark blue I used a colour from smiffys and its the hair and body spray in neon blue. This is also UV activated
 
♥  For the light baby blue I used a colour from FUDGE in the shade called 'turquoise forever'. I also used this shaded to create my kylie jenner inspired hair!
 

Products that will save you the money

Instead of me writing some stuff about what I used, which I mentioned in the video, im going to note down what will save you money!
 
♥  Save money on face paint - I used three lipsticks from makeup revolution, a blue and a pink. This cost £2 for both of these beauties, which is roughly the same as 1 pot of good paint! These are super saturated and gorgeous colours! +++++ you don't need to buy 3 colours... mix colours together to create your own shade.
 
♥  Save money on the stencils - I didn't use stencils for the scales, I just used an old net. You could use fish net tights which will also stay on your head a lot  better than mine did!
 
♥  Save money on sponges - I used a washing up sponge. It has a soft side to apply the lipstick and a rougher side to stipple on glitter and other colours. cut them into pieces for different uses! You can also cut them into different shapes if you have the patience.

Irresistible Me 8 in 1 Curling Wand | Review & Demo*


Hello my gorgeous people!! So I was lucky enough to be sent this wonderful kit from the brand 'irresistible me'. In the video I trial out the wand using the second largest barrel to create soft everyday effortless waves! The wonderful part to this kit focuses not only on creating one look with one wand but two looks! E.g. I used this wand today to create soft slightly wavy hair, yet when you pin the curls it also creates tight, structured curls! Not only this, but you will never need another curling iron again! Unless of course they do one that does it for you ;) but I am just lazy with my hair haha! Anyway, I hope you enjoy!

August Favourites

 
 
Hello my lovely people! Yesterday was the first of September and its really scary how fast time Is flying so appreciate everything and live in the moment! August was a really good month, with wonderful opportunities flying my way. To be honest, I like September but I feel like its going to be a long and repetitive month. Im going back to finish my third year of university which I am kind of looking forward to??? :/ Its quite possibly because I have had so much time off for our summer break I am out of the routine of university work so knowing I have a tonne to go back to isn't reassuring, but please September be good to me, my family and you lovely people!
