What’s In My Backpack 2017/ Back To School Haul

Hiya guys, Paige here. Today I am going to be doing a back to school haul as well as showing you the other things I already have that will be in my backpack. I don’t know when most people go back to school but I had seen a lot of posts and videos like this before I had even finished for school so I know this post could be too late for some people.

My backpack for next year is an Animal backpack that I got from a surf shop when I was on holiday, I can’t remember what the shop was called however you can probably get it online of the Animal website. It’s a good size and will be different to what the majority of people will have.

The next thing I got was a SuperDry pencil case which is a dark blue and is a really good size as with most over pencil cases I’ve had I haven’t been able to fit my calculator in but this one I can.

Next for the things in my pencil case and bag. I get another set of Papermate black pens and a set of sharpie highlighters. I also got some coloured index cards for revision and a new maths set.

The rest of the things that will be in my backpack are stuff that I already had from last year. I have my pink calculator and my pink glue stick (its worth it even though it stains the paper pink). I also have some post it notes and pencils. I also have my two books that I have to learn for literature which are Macbeth and Jekyll and Hyde however I will only take them when I need them.

What to Do on a Lazy Day

Hi guys, Paige here. Today I am going to be sharing with you hair, make-up and outfits I like on lazy days as well as things I like to do when I have nothing else to do.

Hair:

On a lazy day I will normally leave it natural or put it into a messy bun. For a messy bun I will pull my hair to the top of my head, as if putting it into a pony tail but then only pull it half through the bobble and when wrapping the bobble round I twist it and pin any parts with hair pins. If I am leaving my hair natural I will either just leave it or put in the Vo5 curl defining mousse as I have curly hair. That is normally all I do because I don’t like doing my hair unless I’m going somewhere.

Make-up:

Even if I’m not going anywhere I will still normally do my make-up just because I like doing it. I will normally only do light make-up on top of my moisturizer. I start with primer and then lightly fill in my eyebrows. I use concealer under my eyes, a BB cream and powder. I will sometimes use bronzer and then finish it off with a setting spray.

Outfit:

On a normal lazy day I will either wear shorts or leggings and then either a jumper or t-shirt so that I am comfortable.

Things I like to do:

Heart Make-up Tutorial

Hiya guys, Paige here. Today I am going to be sharing with you a make-up look that I don’t really know what to call that was inspired by a video on instagram by 21makeupaddictions who did a look using star stickers.

20170430_191317.jpg

For this loo I started of by spraying my primer from Make-up revolution onto my face as my base. Then I stuck two heart shaped stickers onto the highlight line on my face on the same side. From there I applied my BB cream from GOSH using my buffing brush from real technique and applied my collection concealer with my sponge from real technique. I also then applied my revolution pressed powder using my buffing brush. I also did my eyebrows as normal using the I ❤ makeup brow pallet and used my benefit ready set brow gel to set them. Then I moved onto my eye shadow and used my technic smokey eye pallet. I used the 3rd colour all over my eye and then a mix of the 4th and 6th colour in my crease and the 1st colour as a highlight in the centre of my eye lid. I then curled my eye lashes with my H&M eye lash curlers and used my No 7 mascara on both my top and bottom lashes. Then I moved onto contour using my revolution pallet. I used a mix of the two bronzer shades under my cheek bones, on my jaw line, on my nose and on my forehead. Then I used my MUA liquid highlighter in the shade oyester on my cheekbones. Then over the top of that I used a mix of the two highlighters from the revolution pallet and also on the end of my nose. I then used an accesorize lip gloss that I have had forever for my lips but any pale pink lip gloss would work for this. Then I sprayed my MUA setting spray over the top to set everything. Finally I peeled of the stickers to reveal the little heart shapes in my highlighter.

This probably isn’t the best make-up look for every day wear but for a festival or party or something it would work well or the make-up look without the stickers could also work for every day. I hope this was helpful, please like, comment any posts you’d like to see and follow my instagram (mylifemadepretty).

Testing Weird Beauty Trends

Hiya guys, Paige here. Today I am going to be sharing with you the results of weird beauty trends and my opinion of them. I’ve seen the majority of these on instagram, which you should follow me on (mylifemadepretty), so I hope I did them all right. If you want a part two of this then comment some more weird beauty trends and like this post and I will do another one. Also I was going to try glitter roots but I don’t have any hair gel and also didn’t want to be washing glitter out of my hair for the next two weeks.

The first one I tried was the fake freckles trend. I have seen so many different types of these from natural coloured freckles to metallic freckles and brightly coloured freckles but I went with coloured freckles. I used a pink liquid lipstick and the end of my real technique detail brush to apply the lipstick. I don’t know if this is the correct way to do this but it worked anyway. I applied them to my checks across my nose and up the side between my hairline and eyebrows. I did end up with different sizes and some weird shapes when the lipstick on the brush was running out. They sort of look cute but aren’t really wearable for normal day wear nor something I would do again but they do work. Also if you did try this and used liquid lipstick then use coconut oil as it removes it really easily.

The next trend I tried was the one were you stick stickers under your eyes. These look really cute when people wear them for a party or a music festival or something but again aren’t really for normal days. I just used some of my sisters stickers to try this and it kind of looked cute but they were so uncomfortable and it felt weird when I moved my eyes. Also when I peeled them of there was a shape of them left in my concealer.

The next trend I tried was the feather eyebrow one which is basically when you part your eyebrow and then brush the top half upwards and the bottom half downwards. This looks really weird and I don’t know when anyone could wear this but also I couldn’t actually part my eyebrow and so I don’t really now what it would have looked like on me.

The final trend I tried is more of a hack but anyway it is the one where you put red lipstick underneath your concealer under you eyes. I used a Jack Wills red lipstick and applied a small amount to under my eyes and rubbed it in a bit. Then I applied my collection concealer on top of it and blended it using my real technique sponge. I didn’t think the concealer would cover the red but it did however I don’t think it gave any more coverage however it did make the concealer a bit darker.

Thank you for reading, please like, comment anymore weird trends you want me to try out and follow.

Handbag Essentials

Hiya guys, Paige here. Today I am going to be sharing with you my handbag essentials that I normally have with me but being honest I don’t always remember to put them in my bag.

2017-04-15 04.06.48 2.jpg

The first thing I always have is pretty obvious and that is my purse which is a Jack Wills one and that is honestly the only thing I always remember. The next thing I pretty much always have is my Superdrug card as I get the vast majority of my makeup from Superdrug however I always forget it when I actually need it. The next thing I pretty much always have is my headphones for if I have to get the bus or something. I always try to take my hand gel because I try to be hygienic but I normally always forget to put it in my bag. The final thing I try to remember to take but pretty much never do is extra bobbles and bobby pins just in case it rains and messes up my hair or someone else needs one.

This is quite a short post but I hope you enjoyed it anyway. Please like, comment blog posts and follow my blog and instagram (mylifemadepretty). Thanks for reading.

Mini Haul and First Impressions

Hiya guys, Paige here and today I am going to be giving a first impressions review on some new make-up products. I have only used these products a couple of times so I might do an updated review in the future once I have used them more.

17883077_361821770881859_4961140766836523008_n.jpg

The three products I got were a BB cream by GOSH, liquid highlighter by MUA and an eye shadow pencil by collection and I got all of these from Superdrug.

I got the BB cream by GOSH in the shade 01 Sand which is obviously the lightest colour. I don’t normally wear foundation but I really like this so far. It isn’t high coverage so if that’s what you want then this probably won’t work for you but the colour is really nice and actually is the right shade for my skin. It lasted really well through the day and the rest of my makeup sat well on top of it. This is also the first product I have used from GOSH and I am impressed by it so far.

The next thing I got was the illuminating liquid glow in the shade oyster by MUA. I have used quite a lot of products by MUA and already have a powder highlighter by them and I normally love them. I like this product however I made the mistake of putting too much on and ended up wiping of all the rest of the makeup under it. This only needs a tiny amount as it is really pigmented which I love but it is awkward to not put too much on. Also it is a really pretty colour.

The final thing I got was and eye shadow pencil by collection (it doesn’t say a colour but it was the darker one of the two). I got this as I hate putting eye shadow on as the glitter always ends up everywhere so I thought this would make it easier. There is no fall out however it is waterproof which at first I didn’t believe until I came to get it off. It said use a waterproof makeup remover so I have the simple eye makeup remover which says it removes waterproof mascara so I thought it would be fine. It got it off eventually but it was quite difficult. I still like this product as it is easy to apply and is a really pretty colour however it is as nightmare to remove.

Overall I am happy with everything I got. Thanks for reading. Please like, comment post requests and follow my instagram (mylifemadepretty).
