Update 2017

Hey guys,

First off I would like to apologise for being unactive these past few months. The reason behind this is mostly down too me having to focus on school work but not only that, I started to feel like blogging was becoming a chore and I no longer looked forward to doing it which I think is wrong to continue doing so as the quality of my content would be nowhere near as good. However this year I am going to be starting up this blog again due to me not feeling down about it anymore. Once again I would like to say sorry for the lack of posts but there is definitely more on there way. Feel free to leave any suggestions down below on what you would like to see from me.

Talk soon,

Larissa xoxo

My Everyday Makeup Routine // Larissa_xoxo


Hello everyone,

So today’s post is on my everyday makeup routine! 

I thought I would make a post on this as I have been using a couple of new products recently and absolutely adore them. Because of this they gradually made their way into my everyday makeup routine. This makeup look is quite light and dewy perfect for summer as well as creating a radiant glow.

Foundation


Collection illuminating touch Foundation~

This is one of my new finds which I have fell in love with. This foundation is super easy to apply and blend as well leaving the skin nice to touch. It brightens up your face as well as leaving it looking natural and healthy. As I am quite pale, it’s hard to find a foundation which matches that without leaving an orange pigment and this is without a doubt perfect for that and matches my skin tone perfectly. 

My colour: 2 Ivory
Eyeshadow


W7 In the Nude Palette ~

This palette is my holy grail. It’s a dupe for the naked 2 palette however it is just as good and at a much cheaper, affordable price. The eyeshadow palette as a wide range of soft colours, perfect for summer, as well as an incredible pigment and lasting power.

The look: 

I apply 1 all over the base of my lid following with 2 blended in the crease. Finally I apply 3 to my inner corner to brighten up my eyes with a soft glow.
Mascara


Rimmel London wonder’ful wake me up mascara ~

This mascara is phenomenal. It applies smoothly to the lashes, giving them a boost of moisture. The consistency is smooth and does not clump. The brush is a great design as it picks up each individual lash giving a voluminous, full finish.
Lips


Sleek Matte Me Lip cream (birthday suit) ~ 

For my lips I am loving sleeps matte me lip cream collection in particular the colour birthday suit as it gives a lovely matte finish without drying out the lips and having a gorgeous natural pink colour. I definitely think it brings the whole makeup look together.
That was my complete everyday makeup routine! I hope you liked it. You can obviously switch out some of the products and adapt it to how you prefer. You can leave me a comment recommending and other beauty product as I would love to try out some of them and see what all of you are using.

Talk to you soon,

Easter make up

  
Hello everyone,

It’s been quite a while since my last post but I’ve got a great one for you today. It is my Easter makeup! You are probably thinking Larissa, Easter has been and gone. Yes I know, however I feel like that this look can be adapted into more of a casual look and maybe you have that late Easter party coming up. Who knows?

  1. For this look you will need a good foundation that doesn’t cake up or become oily. My go to foundation is the wake me up foundation by rimmel as it gives me just the right amount of coverage along with matching my skin type extremely well.
  2. Once the foundation is applied you may apply your go to concealer (mine is the collection 2000 concealer) and then set with a suitable powder. I would reccomend the rimmel stay matte powder as it holds your foundation in place all day.
  3. For the eyes I applied a baby blue across the whole lid with white around the inner corner to brighten up my eyes. Blending out from the blue into the crease I applied a deep violet to add some definition towards my eyes. To finish off I add some black winged liner with some waterproof mascara.
  4. On the lips I applied a natural pink colour in a lip pen form as it stays on my lips the longest covered with a pale pink gloss. 

And that’s about it. It an extremely easy, simple look that looks like you put a lot of effort towards it. I hope this gave you some ideas for a make up look and was helpful.

Talk to you soon, 

Larissa xxx
