HUDA Beauty Lip Contour:                                                                                                          We have received products from this brand before and I have heard a lot of this brand. So far I love what I have tried out from this brand. The shade I received inside my Glossybox is ‘Flirt’. It’s a gorgeous muted brown shade, perfect for a nude lip. It does feel very creamy as well which I like. The information card that comes inside the box says ‘Waterproof and transfer-free, it glides on effortlessly to give your pout an intense shot of colour. Use it to both contour and colour your lips, or pair it with HUDA Beauty’s Liquid Matte Lipstick for a beautiful Matte Finish’. This is a full size product and retails for £16

I have only heard good things from this brand though. The information card says ‘Long-lasting and super glossy, this sultry nail polish is a fabulously intense, deep cherry red hue. Better yet, it boasts an expertly designed brush that perfectly fits the shape and width of your nail. Giving yourself an immaculate manicure has never been easier!’ This is a full size product and retails for £15

Luxie Beauty Onyx Noir Small Contouring Face Brush 512:                                                       I love trying out new brushes and I have never heard of this brand before so Im eager to try it out and see how well it works. The information card says ‘Use this contour brush to define your best facial features and make yourself feel confident. It’s ultra-soft, handcrafted bristles allow you to effortlessly accentuate your cheekbones and achieve an even and blended contour.’ This is a full size product and retails for £15

Regenerate Enamel Science Advanced Toothpaste:                                                                 We don’t normally receive toothpaste in our Glossybox so this is a nice little treat and something different to what I normally receive. I have never heard of this brand either. The information card says ‘There’s nothing more charming than a nice smile. Give your teeth a spruce with this regenerating, strengthening and enamel mineral restoring toothpaste. Boasting unique NR-5 ingredients, it reverses the early enamel erosion process, while also giving you early-white teeth and fresh, minty breath’.

Vitamasques Multivitamin Mask:                                                                                                     I have heard and used this brand before and the products I have tried I really like. I especially like sheet masks as well so I was excited and eager to try it out when I saw it inside the box. The information card says ‘Achieve a breathtaking complexion with this pampering Korean face mask. Formulated with nourishing vitamins, it moisturises and hydrates dry skin for a healthy glow’. That description sounds perfect for my skin. This is a full size product and retails for £4.99

Eastbourne Trip Away

For Valentines day me and Casey decided to have a little trip away and have a little break. My mum very kindly bought me a two nights away of my choice for Christmas. So, I thought I would go to Eastbourne with Casey. Originally I wanted to go to Cornwall but, it was a 6 hour drive away from my house (also we were only going to be there for three days). Me and Casey then decided on a hotel in Eastbourne. It was directly in front of the sea and it was only an hour drive away from Brighton. I have wanted to go to Brighton for a while now, it looks beautiful and great for shopping.

Day One:
We set off for Eastbourne at 9:30. It was a 3 hour drive and we had a one stop on the way so we arrived at around 1. Once we parked up we didn’t have to check into the hotel till 3, so we decided to have a look around the town which was only a 10 minute walk from the hotel. I bought a couple of things from Primark and had a look in a few of the shops. We then had a little look on the pier and had fish and chips for lunch (typical english thing to do, I know). Once it had gone 3 we went back to the car got our bags and checked in at the hotel. We settled in at the hotel for a little bit and then wrapped up and headed out to for dinner. As it was valentine’s day we went for a nice meal out at Bill’s. When we finished with dinner we had another little wonder around the pier and on the beach.

Day Two:
Once we got up, had breakfast and was ready for the day ahead we decided to spend the day in Brighton (as it was only an hour away). Once we got to Brighton we parked up and had a look around the Churchill Square Shopping Centre. Brighton is so much bigger than I thought (the town reminds me of Norwich). I was so impressed with the shop selection. I have wanted some dungarees for a while now, I saw some in Primark and I loved them. I also got a couple of the valentines bath bombs from Lush, as well as a Kiko mascara that I have wanted to try for while. For lunch we went to Ed’s Place, and then we headed to The Lanes. I absolutely fell in love with the lanes, it was so cute and like a maze walking around. I did go into a donut shop called ‘Dum Dum’ and they were amazing, I would definitely recommend. On the way back to the car we decided to walk along the beach. Before we drove back to Eastbourne we thought we would go into Sainsbury’s quickly. Brighton roads are so confusing, I got so lost and the parking for Sainsbury’s was so weird (The driver’s in Brighton aren’t the best either). Apart from that I did really like Brighton and would love to go back again.

Day Three:
Today was the final day and we had to check out of the hotel by 11. Therefore we had a lazy morning, had breakfast, packed up our bags and checked out of the hotel. Once we put our bags in the car we had one final wonder around the town. And then headed home before the after work traffic.

Eastbourne and Brighton was such a beautiful place. I would love to come back sometime for another well deserved break. I hope you enjoyed this ‘trip away’ blog and I hope to see you soon! Bye!

 

Valentine’s Day Make Up Look

As Valentine’s Day is just round the corner I thought I would do an Valentine’s Day inspired make up look. I wanted to go for something quite simple and pretty. I hope you enjoy!

I have still be loving my Body Shop InstaBlur so I am going to start off with apply that on my face. As well as my Bourjois City Radiance Foundation blending that out with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush. To conceal my dark circles I am going to use my Mac Pro Longwear Concealer and my Naked Skin Concealer to highlight my under eyes, and again blending that out with my Beauty Blender this time. To set my under eyes I am going to use my E.L.F. Under eye powder applying that with my E.L.F. Small Tapered Brush. I am going to bronze up my face a little with the Benefit Hoola Bronzer, using my Real Techniques Contour Brush. Onto blush, recently I have been loving my Too Faced Sweetheart Blush as it’s the perfect shade for a valentines look. I’m going to apply that with my Real Techniques Blush Brush. Finally for my face I will use my Laura Geller Illuminator in ‘Gilded Honey’ to highlight my face, applying that with again my E.L.F. Small Tapered Brush.

For my brows I am going to use my Anastasia Brow Wiz which I have been loving recently. Then setting them in place with my Benefit Gimme Brow. I am going to prime my eyes with my Urban Decay Primer Potion. For eyeshadow I want it to be quite pink and suttle so I am going to use my Naked 3 Palette. Starting off using ’Strange’ all over my lid to set the primer. Then using my Zoeva Luxe Soft Crease Brush taking ‘Limit’ in my crease. I want a bit of depth to my eye so I am going to take ’Nooner’ and concentrate that on the outer part of my eye with the same Zoeva brush. Back into ‘Limit’ blending that through my crease again. I am then going to take my By Terry Ombre Blackstar in ‘Frozen Quartz’ and apply that all over my lid. Blending that out with a little bit of ‘Limit’ on the same Zoeva brush. For my under eye I am going to apply ‘Limit’ with my Zoeva Luxe Pencil Brush, and taking a little bit of ‘Frozen Quartz’ in the inner corner of my eye. To highlight my eye I am going to take my Bourjois Eyeshadow in ‘Originale’ using my Zoeva Luxe Petite Crease Brush, and applying that to my brow bone and inner corner of my eye. Then, for my lashes I am going to curl them and apply the Benefit They’re Real mascara to my top and bottom lashes.

To finish off this make up look I am going to apply my NYX Liquid Suede Liquid Lipstick in ‘Sandstorm’ to my lips. I wanted it to be a little lighter so I applied some of my Naked Skin Concealer to lighten my lips a little.

I hope you like this valentine make up look, let me know what you think and if you like blogs like this. Have a lovely rest of your day, Bye!
