I have to admit, I don't wear eyeshadow all that often, I'd say I only apply eyeshadow two or three times each month - I know, that's hardly ever. The reason for that is, essentially I don't feel the need to go to the fuss of spending countless minutes pondering over the many choices a palette has to offer, only to side with my trusty MAC quad with which i know will go forth and create the same variations of a look that I have in the past ended up with numerous times. Not that this fate bothers me - I personally like the neutral, bronzed look that seems to coat my eyelids once in a blue moon; however, occasionally - the day that these pictures were taken being an example - I like to wander to the more colourful hues that my Rainbow Eyes Front Cover pallete has at hand, or rather, box.
For this look which I have decided to appropriately name 'Purple Haze' was the result of myself having too much time on my hands while getting ready for a party. For the party I wore a white lace playsuit so, I had decided in an advance that I wanted to incorporate a bit of colour into the outfit through the make up on my face, specifically my eyes.
To start off the base of this look, I used a light mixture of the eye shadows in my MAC quad, (Of course I had to put it into play in some way! I am too loyal.) I mainly applied this to the inner corner of my eyes and then to the crease of my eyelids. After that, I browsed my Front Cover palette and decided upon a pretty, shimmering pink/lilac colour called 'Viola' to apply to my eyelids as the main colour for the look. I applied this colour heavy to my eyelids, building it up gradually towards the outer corners of my eyes. I also lightly dusted 'Viola' under the waterline of my eyes to make the colour more prominent so it stood out even more.
To finish this make up look I applied my Sleek kohl eyeliner pencil onto the waterline of my eyes and then I took my Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Cherish Devotion to coat my lips, with it being in a pink hue this adds to the presence of colour in this look, therefore it finishes it all off collectively.
I know this haul is really tiny but I felt like filming so I hope you don't mind! Hope you enjoy this video anyway!
This outfit is a bit different from what I'd usually wear, not in the sense of the clothes I'm wearing but the layering on the top over the dress - I never layer clothing. That's not because I don't like the look of it but simply because I've never thought to do it before these pictures were taken. I decided to throw the lacey top over the monochrome dress in order to make the outfit more interesting; I'd been inspired by other fashion bloggers and I'm glad - I really liked the look of the panel on the cream top showing the striped straps through the black lace. I also threw on my coral/orange blazer to add a pop of colour to the outfit.

It's no secret that I am slightly obsessed with nail polish, although I might not own a rainbow colour coded collection like many other bloggers and youtubers, that fact doesn't stop me from buying more and more of what I don't really need but, of course want.
I purchased two of these nail polishes from Fragrance Direct my trusty go to website for discounted make up, their prices are amazing!
The two Essie nail polishes that I bought were only £1.99 each, it's hard to believe as usually they are priced a lot more nearer the £10 mark in boots, such a massive saving! These Essie nail polishes were two of my first and they haven't let me down, I am amazed at the formula of them - I've been wearing go ginza for days and it hasn't chipped at all. As a plus, the colour is amazing and only took one coat to appear opaque.
The odd one out in this tiny haul, the Barry M Gelly nail polish in Key lime, I purchased from Asos. I can't grumble at the price of this item either - only £3.99! I am yet to try out this nail polish but I'm sure it won't disappoint, i've heard nothing but good reviews about this product.
Over the past month I've been reading so many blogs and some of them have become my favourites; there are always going to be obvious favourite bloggers of mine such as Zoella and Louise from Sprinkle Of Glitter but apart from the more widely known bloggers I thought I'd write this post to share with you some of my other favourites.
I stumbled upon Fiona's youtube channel (which is just as good as her blog) one day which led me to her blog, I am so glad I happened to find one of her videos because I adore her blo!. I love Fiona's posts and her style and her overall blog layout. You should seriously check out her blog!
