This week.. I went Shopping

Today has been fairly quiet, but I have tried out my new make up, that I mentioned in my most recent post here and I thought I would share it with you all 🙂

photo 1 (5)I apologise for the glazed look in my eyes that makes it look like I don’t have two brain cells to rub together, it’s just how my face photographs 😦 But I am wearing the eyeshadow and brown eyeliner that I mentioned in my last post and I am actually really impressed by it! The pink shade which I applied to my lids really made the green in my eyes come out. even my 13 year old sister commented on them and said they look ‘golden’ so a definite win for me! On my lips I have Revlon’s Colourburst Lip Butter in Wild Watermelon and I kept the rest of face fairly simple!!

As for the week it was fairly quiet with college and work! Me and Tom didn’t do anything for Valentines day as we were both working all night, but we’ve had a nice quiet weekend. As for the rest of the evening I plan on watching the BAFTAs whilst Tom draws laying on the floor as he’s pulled his hamstring and it’s the only way he can get comfy 😦

My Everyday Face And Hair Up-Do

First of all my hair. My hair is finally at that length that I can play around with and Man am I happy about that!! Due to my job I have to have my hair tied up! However, after an 8 hour shift this does mean that I am left with an almighty kink running round my head, so I’ve managed to find a way that only involves bobby pins! Firstly I comb the front sections of my hair (sides as well) back, leaving my fringe out and then hold it in place with a line of 3 bobby pins at the back of my head, I then get the rest of my hair and twist it into a bun on top of the original bobby pins before securing it with yet more bobby pins!

Simple, but necessary!!

Then, we come to my face! I wear my make up like this to college as well, not just work!

Nearly all the products I used are mentioned in my January Favourites  except I use Maybelline’s Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze as a base before applying Urban Decay’s Buck over my lids, it just gives the look a bit of shimmer, rather than being completely Matte and then blend Urban Decay’s DarkHorse and Smog into my crease. I am also wearing my liquid eye-liner which is so well-loved and used that the wording has come off it and I cannot remember what brand it is Sorry 😦 But any liquid eye-liner will do!! Voilà:

These pictures were both taken after work, so you can see how my hair and make-up looks at the end of the day – hence the dodgy eyebrows!!

What do you wear to work?
