Release your inner Diva

                         Mac - Diva £15.00

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend (:
Every year i cant wait for the winter months to come along so I can whip out all my vampy lip colours, not too sure I could pull off a dark lip in june haha. 
Last year I was obsessed with Mac's Rebel which is a dark pinky/purple so for this Winter I wanted a dark red/berry colour. 
After looking at hundreds of swatches online I finally settled for Mac's Diva and I am in love.
It is quite dark and at first I thought that maybe it was a little bit too dark for me but I applied a little bit more warmth in my face and it was fine. I have worn it all weekend and can see this being my go to colour this winter!

What is your favourite winter shade?

Beauty Favourites Tag!

Hii Guyssss,

Right I LOVE reading peoples tag posts so was very excited when Lauren from Tea & Post ( tagged me to do the beauty favourites tag. 
So here are my favourites...

My go to foundation is Estée Lauders double wear, I wear the shade Tawny. When tanned I mix it 
with Revlon's Colour Stay foundation in the shade Natural Tan. 

#2 Mascara
I cant just pick one so Benefit's They're Real and Lancôme's Hypnose in Doll eyes.

#3 Blush
At the moment Im loving Nars Orgasm

#4 Lipstick (or any other lip product)
For this time of year i love vampy lips so Mac's Rebel & Diva, love love love

#5 Eye shadow 
Tbh I'm not a huge eyeshadow wearer but i have been reaching for Benefits Big beautiful
 eye kit lately 

#6 Concealer
Rimmel's wake me up concealer is my go to, i find it really brightens up under my eyes!   

#7 Eyeliner
I use the standard black rimmel eyeliner for my waterline, been using it since I was 15 love it, 
and for lid liner I'm loving my Be a Bombshell felt liner I got in my glossybox!

#8 Shampoo/Conditioner
I am in love with the L'Oreal Ever Riche shampoo and conditioner, i use the nourishing and
 taming one with is for very dry hair. These smell really nice and make my hair feel amazing. 
I recently had a weekend away and took these with me for me and my mates to use, 
they loved them and couldn't believe it was L'Oreal as they just feel like luxury products! 
These are often on 3 for £12 at boots and i make sure i stock up! TRY THEM!

#9  Moisturiser
Nip + Fab Pistachio Sundae but this has unfortunately been discontinued so I am on the lookout
 for a new fav.
For my face I just use Simple light moisturiser, simple, easy and does the job.

Autumn Nails 🍁

                         Nails Inc - Piccadilly Circus £9.90

Hii Guysss,
First off please excuse the nails pic, I am rubbish at painting nails and will openingly admit this... now thats out the way on to the post hehe.

 As much as I love a bright neon pink nail in the summer, I am 100% a vampy nail kinda girl. I love this time of year as all the berry, browns and dark purples start to come out. 
This polish by Nails Inc has to be one of my favourites, it is very similiar to the popular Barry M- Rasberry. 
At £9.90 Nails inc is abit pricey but I really like the way it applies, but a lot of the time Nails inc comes free with magazines etc so keep your eye out!

What is your favourite Autumn nail colour?

Hiii Guysss,

So this is pretty much my everyday work makeup. Im head receptionist for an oil company so I just keep it quite simple to be professional, plus i work with a lot of older people who constantly tell me 'you don't need all that slap' so i reckon if i came in with a dark smokey eye and red lip they might just have a heart attack haha

Simple light moisturiser 
Clarins Instant smooth primer self tanning 
Estée Lauder Double wear - Tawny
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection concealer - No 2
Rimmel Face Powder -Translucent 
Benefit Hula - for contouring
Nars Orgasm   

Benefit eyeshadow - Bikini Line
Mac eyeshadow - Espresso (also used for my eyebrows)
Lancôme Hypnose mascara

Estée Lauder - Vanilla Truffle (My fav!!)

I know its nothing too exciting but its my makeup routine 5 days a week at the moment so thought i would share! Gone are the days I worked at Benefit and the more makeup the better *depressing moment* but i wont lie sometimes i did just want a boring makeup day... maybe not 5 days a week tho haha the joys of office work ayyy ;)

Leanne xoxo
