Easy Ways To Decorate Your Room

Hiya guys, Paige here. Today I am going to be sharing some easy ways to decorate your room. So lets get started.

1 . Picture/Ticket collages

I have printed out a load of my favourite pictures and put them on my magnet board and wall and it makes it more personal too than just buying things. I also have done this with tickets from shows and concerts as well as with train and theme park tickets.

2 . Photo stands/Frames

I have these banana photo holders that I got from Primark that are really cheap to hold photos from photoboths and cinema tickets. These are a different way to display my photos and also a really inexpensive way (the post where I talk about them). This can be done with photo frames too.

3. Fairy Lights

I know every room decor post/video includes fairy lights but I’m going to include them anyway. I got mine from Primark and they are warm white and star shaped. I talked about them in my post that I linked previously as well.

4 . Light boxes

Post going up at 5 tonight, make sure to check it out 💓

Comment any blog posts you want to see as I'm posting twice a week in summer 💫
I think they are called light boxes but they are really cute. I got mine from New Look and I think it was only £10.
5 . Sticker
You can either buy or make ‘tumblr’ stickers to use on you laptop/computer or on a mirror and they look really cute. You can probably buy them on ebay, or you can make them by printing of things you like of tumblr and then using tape over them to turn them into stickers or by using sticker paper.

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.

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.

DIY Mango Smoothie

Hiya guys, Paige here. Today I am going to be sharing with you how to make a mango smoothie which I posted on my instagram yesterday (mylifemadepretty). This one is really simple to make and is really good.

18162036_1927649024188861_3891441499199504384_n.jpg

Ingredients:

Frozen mango cubes
Fresh orange juice
Ice cubes
Honey (optional)

There isn’t really any proper measurements that I use so you just have to do it by eye and add anything extra if needed. I put in some frozen mango to start with and to get the amount of smoothie in the picture I used about 5 cubes. It is up to you how much mango you put in as it depends on how much you want. Then I put some ice cubes in the blender, I normally just put 2 or 3 in. The I pour in some orange juice and make sure that it is up to the height of the ice and mango so that it won’t be too thick. Then I sometimes add a bit of honey into it but not a lot. Once you have done that blend it all together and put it into a cute glass and take artsy instagram photos. 🙂

Flourless Pancakes

Hiya guys, Paige here. So as you may have noticed I have completely emptied my blog and instagram and have decided to start again so that I am happier with my blog and should hopefully blog more. So today I am going to be sharing with you how to make flourless pancakes. This makes about two pancakes depending on the size of the pan and how thick you make them. So let’s begin.

Ingredients:

-3 tbs of porridge oats
-1 egg
-1/4 cup of milk
-1 tsp of cinnamon
-As much sugar as you want
-Any toppings

Start by putting 3 tbs of oats into a blender and blend them so that it looks like flour. Then add in 1 egg, 1/4 cup of milk, a tsp of cinnamon and a bit of sugar and then blend all of that together. Once it is all blended together to look like pancake mix pour about half into a frying pan that has oil in the bottom so that it won’t stick. Then leave that to cook like any normal pancake and then cook the other side. Once it is done add any toppings that you want, I added honey, banana, raisins and sliced almonds.

So that is how to make flourless pancakes, if you have any other post request please comment them on this post or on my instagram (@mylifemadepretty) and I will try to do them.
