|Face of the Day| Elite Sharks

As I mentioned in a post a few months back, that I never do make-up before I go to work- just some foundation to hide my face.
Today was a bit different- obviously, cos I am wearing make-up. 

(After two coffees, I still feel a bit brain dead. Perhaps I'm immune to the bean!)


Instead of doing a subtle brown, smoky eye, I wanted to do something with a pop colour. 
At first, I was thinking of just being standard and digging into my 120 manly palette- like I always do, but I have these amazing loose shadows from Shiro cosmetics that I rarely use. 
And Elite Four caught my attention instead. 


Its a beautiful grey toned Violet shade and I recommend that everyone gets this! 
What I used:
(Face)
-Revlon Colorstay Foundation
-MUA Translucent powder 
-Avon Blusher is Russet 
(Eyes)
-Shiro Cosmetics, Elite Four
-MUA Black Eyepencil
-Miss Sporty Mascara



This is the first time in a long time that I have actually made an effort with my appearance.
Look, I even have my hair down for work! :)
How Do you like my top?
I got it from H&M for like £7.99! It has sharks and is so me!
So tell me, are you like me in the mornings who rolls out of bed and more bothered about concentrating on centring themselves with a stiff cup of coffee or do you wake up all glamorous and like? :)

|Lush Review| Space Girl Bath Bomb Review

Surprise, Surprise, another Lush review.
We all knew what this was going to be, pretty much a blog dedicated to my bath time.

This isn't my first time using Space Girl, I must confess, so I knew what to expect when I purchased this for like the tenth time.
Space Girl is one of my first loves and lingering loves.


Space Girl Bath Bomb, £2.35/each:
Shaped like a planet and dusted with red popping candy, this smells strongly like Parma Violets.
I like the smell of Parma Violets but as a sweet, keep it away from me!
Made with Grapefruit oils, Bermot Oils and Sweet Almond oils, this bomb dissolves into a uplifting and inspiring bath.


Firstly the red dusting of vegan popping candy dissolves before the bath bomb starts to react and change the red water into this alluring, purple colour.


Check out my Space Crumpet!
Trypophobia suffers beware!
This is the end resulting colour of the bath and although its not as interesting as Northern Lights, it still very stunning to look at- even be in!



The hot steam coming off of the surface of the water indicates to me that perhaps, my bath is a little too hot?!
What are your thoughts?

|Make-up| Ignore the dodgy liner

Behind the dodgy cat wing, is a purple eye look that I feel that I failed to rescue yesterday.
I haven't done a make-up look in ages, so as it was my day off I blew off the dust that was collecting on my make-up collection and sampled some purple (a colour that I have unintentionally been sporting alot of lately, if you couldn't tell by the blog layout).


What I used:
(Face)
-Revlon Colorstay foundation
-MUA Translucent powder
-Avon Blusher in Russet.
(eyes)
-Dark Heart Designs, Elizabeth
-120 manly palette, bluish purple, dark purple and a pinkish purple.
-MAC Glitter in Goldrift
-MUA Black eye pencil
-MUA Black Gel Liner
-Miss Sporty Mascara.
(Lips)
-Vaseline
-MAC Glitter in Goldrift


Agg.
Just look how uneven and ugly that eyeliner looks!
See, this is what happens when you don't do make-up for a while.
To be honest- not like I'm a pro or anything, applying fake eyelashes and trying to do seamless cat eyeliner are two things I still struggle at and I've been doing make-up for about four years!
Tell me, as a beauty blogger- what things do you still fail at?
