Top Tips for Perfect Makeup

Hey Internet Friends,
A few weeks ago, I had a poll on my blog asking people to vote for what they wanted to see next and Top Tips won. Thank you to anyone who voted, it really helps me out. Back to the post. Makeup can quite often be awkward a or difficult to apply nicely so here are my top tips to getting your makeup perfect!

Firstly, whenever you apply makeup, you should always try to go so in natural lighting as this help make any errors obvious. If you use bad lighting, you may not notice these errors and may end up with patchy makeup.

My second tip is to try and keep your brushes nice by cleaning them regularly. Makeup easily builds up in them and so it's best to give them a good wash every now and then. Foundation brushes tend to get the worst. If too much foundation builds up in them, you can't use them to apply your foundation as nicely. I prefer to use makeup sponges as they are more affordable and easier to keep clean.

The next tip on my list is to always apply moisturiser before applying any makeup. It helps keep your skin soft, works as a great base and helps prevent skin from dehydrating and drying out.

My final tip is for super long lashes. If you have a slightly smaller budget, you can still use slightly cheaper mascaras to get amazingly long lashes. All you need to do is use eyelash curlers first! Eyelash curlers can be bought very cheaply and do an amazing job at making your eyelashes look so much longer!

Hope these help!

Thoughtful Thursday - Rain

Hey Internet Friends!

I find rain a thing of absolute beauty. Sometimes, I wish I was a raindrop. I'd love to fall freely from clouds in the sky and run down rooftops and windows with all my other raindrop friends. I'd love to come together with others to create puddles for young children to splash in and be happy.  Lots of things in life have two sides. Even simple things like raindrops. They look so fragile and dainty yet have the power to transform into things like snow and hail which can be harsh and violent.

Some people don't like rain but I don't think they see the true beauty behind it. Rain is under appreciated, just like most of the beauty in our world.
 It's strange how late at night you think about random things that wouldn't usually cross your mind. This is one of the thoughts I had one night that I thought I'd share with you all. You can let me know some of your late night thoughts below or on one of my social media pages.

Top Tips - Back to school

Hey Internet Friends!


As I am going back to school next week, and I'm sure most of you will be as well, I thought I'd give you some top tips for going back to school.

First of all, you should always get your bag ready the night before so you don't have to rush around panicking in the morning. I'm a very stress person and this always helps me feel a bit better in the morning. On the topic of bags, I always like to pack a few extra things that always come in handy: anti bacterial hand gel, hair bands/bobbles/elastics, tampons/sanitary towels, hand cream, deodorant and a small amount of makeup. I find these things are always helpful to have as you never know when you'll need them!


My next top tip is that you should stay organised! It means you won't forget things as easily and you'll be in less of a stressful mess. I have calendars, to-do lists and sticky notes everywhere round my room while I'm at school. I like to highlight days off on my calendar so I can count down the days till I can chill out again!

Another top tip us to keep your room tidy! I recommend cleaning it at least once a week as it makes it easier to concentrate, meaning you can get homework completed much quicker. It's also good to reduce the amount of clutter you have in order to it easier to find what you want.


Finally, keep calm! If you are particularly stressy or have panic attacks (like me), yoga or regular exercise (like walking) is brilliant to help you reduce stress and just chill out more. Try to get as much fresh air as possible. Nice weather? Do your homework outside! It makes you feel so much better, rather than being cooped up inside all the time.

Hope these tips help,
Love and Hugs
