Liquid Eyeliner Free Week ft Benefit's 'Push Up Liner'

Firstly, sorry for the lack of regular posts, been so busy lately my poor little blog took a back seat :( But I'm here again now! 
This week I've been trying not to use liquid eyeliner, mainly because the last time I put it on last weekend was awful. Considering I have been using the same brand of eyeliner, in the same style every day for the past 6/7 years it was a bit strange to have a stinging/burning feeling at the outer corners, watering constantly so any eyeliner I applied just didn't stay on! I have been switching between two of my Collection Fast Stoke Liquid eyeliner that are probably quite old now, so that might be the problem! That or something I've been using is making the skin around my eye area quite sensitive...

FOTD: Casual Grey Eyes

Thought it had been a while since doing a make up of the day/what I've been wearing on my face style post on my blog! So here is one I've been doing a lot recently to make my daily make up a tad different...

What I wore:

Casual OOTD | Brighton Lazy Day

Can't quite believe that it is now warm enough to go out in a jacket only? Is this the same UK I have grown up in?! It's been such nice weather lately and I've been more than happy to throw my ever so loyal leather jacket back on. I had the day off last Friday for my best friends birthday, Brighton was bright and sunny (even cracked out the sunnies for the drive!), so we mooched about town and had some lunch before he went back to London. 

The Scent | Rosie for Autograph

It's been a while since I went perfume shopping! Normally I stick to my usual Chanel Chance for special occasions and Next's 'Just Pink' for my everyday easy handbag/travel sized scent. I have always liked the M&S 'purse size' perfumes since getting a collection of them as a gift for christmas one year actually. Since my faithful Marc Jacobs 'Honey' rollerball (still on my UK hunt for these!) has been decreasing (sob) i've been on the hunt for something fresh and fun for my spring day scent.

My Completed MAC Quad

I don't think I have ever been so impatient with completing a project out of work than my MAC quad. I started it before I went to NY in November and have only just completed it! There is something about seeing empty eyeshadow pans that puts me on edge until they are filled up...

Positive Skincare - Yes To!

Ah, skincare products. How I despise the search for the 'perfect', all round problem-fixing product. Let's be honest, there is never going to be the one skincare product that fixed everything on your face over night. There are other factors such as stress, lack of sleep, time of the month, diet etc etc that affect our skin that products can't compete with. In terms of spots, oily/dryness and dark spots though, I have found a few gems that have changed my opinion on skincare hunting in the aisles of Boots.

Current Base Routine

Seeing as I've actually stuck with a base routine that is the same for longer than 2 weeks I thought it deserved a mention! I find this works best for my skin type and through out the day at work with only one powder touch up (damn you oily skin!). 

Day to Night with the NARSisst Palette

Another payday, another Nars splurge. 
But on such a simple, beautiful and easy to use palette how could I not?! The NARSisst Smokey Eye Palette is the perfect size for popping in your handbag when going from work to a night out in a rush. The kit includes a lovely little palette of a pale ivory matte eyeshadow, a cool toned taupe and a rich dark brown with flicks of gold in it - dreamy. It also includes a miniature version of their large Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner, and a smaller sized angled contour eyeshadow brush. All perfectly sized to use on the go!

Current (& Growing) Mac Nude Lipstick Collection

My obsession with slowly but surely collecting every 90's nude lip colour by Mac is getting a bit out of hand. I blame it all on Velvet Teddy and that god damn Kylie Jenner popping up everywhere with her perfect 90's nude pout on every social media site. However on this little lipstick purchasing journey I have discovered some gems as listed below.

New Boots & OOTD

Recently purchased some new Topshop boots that I have been wearing absolutely everywhere and teamed with a few of these items have been a staple smart-casual outfit! So thought I would do a post on it as these boots & jacket are things I have been picking up time and time again to wear out for different events.
 Links are below for where these items are from, most ship internationally :)
