5 Magical Make-Up Tips

Recently, I've been having so much fun recording make-up looks for YouTube. I'm very shy and I still feel incredibly awkward about them but they're just so much fun to do! Whilst I've been filming them I've noticed that I always seem to have a little, handy tip and I have a tendency to want to say them every video which is ridiculous.

So here's 5 of my top make-up tips especially for you guys!

1.) This is my biggest bugbear but when applying blusher, don't smile. Applying blush on your apples of your cheeks when smiling looks great until you look at everyone with a straight face. Then it just looks nasty and out of place.

2.) Instead of splashing out on pricey heated eyelash curlers, just quickly blowdry your current pair. BAM. Instant heated eyelash curlers. Just make sure not to burn your eyelashes with them.

3.) If you feel a little shaky about applying liquid eyeliner, use a kohl eyeliner to do a quick line and then go over the top with it with a liquid eyeliner. The kohl liner acts like a guide.

4.) Sudocrem isn't just for babies bums. It's absolutely amazing for clearing up bad skin and killing spots. My younger sister uses it every day and her once acne prone skin has completely cleared up! Just apply it over your blemishes and wash it off the next morning and ZAP, that spot is dead.

Well. I lied! Number 5 is for you to share your weird and handy beauty tips with me.

Just leave a comment and let me know what your secrets are!

All the Cosplaying!

As you all know I'm a cosplayer. And as a cosplayer I'm always looking for new characters to cosplay as and I've recently become such an Avatar fan I couldn't resist cosplaying two of my favourite ladies from the series.

First up we have Ty Lee.

Ty Lee is such a cutiepie and she's so bubbly and happy and I just adore her. She's so sweet!

I have a wig test and the full cosplay for her done now!

I am so crazy excited to cosplay her, you guys have no idea! I'm just worried about the whole tummy showing thing but if I can do Inori, this should be no trouble at all.

The next lady I am doing is Asami Sato from The Legend of Korra. I didn't think I'd suit her as well as I do! Make-up is wonderful.

Rather embarrassingly I did a make-up tutorial for her. I feel so awkward and embarrassed and I mumble a lot. Woops.

I am back!

Apologies for the sudden hiatus! As mentioned in June, I finally bit the bullet and got my eyes lasered. It was a really scary procedure and I haven't been able to wear make-up in awhile because of it so I haven't thought too much about blogging.

For today I have a nice, easy relaxed post which covers what I've been doing in the meantime. I have such a back log of posts, it's ridiculous!

First off, here's my favourite code since I've been away. I wore this the week I had my eyes done and couldn't wear any eye make-up so I just made a big emphasis on my lips.

Shirt: Lipsy
Shorts: Lipsy
Shoes: Garage Shoes
Stockings: eBay

It's one of my favourite outfits ever. It's so comfy too! I wore this on a night out with some of the most gorgeous girls ever (where we bought four pitchers of Sex on the Beach between us woops).

I'm glad to be back!
