Save on make up wishlist - My new love affair

So recently I've been doing lots of research into different brands that offer high quality make up but at affordable prices so people like me and you who have a massive interest are able to experiment and explore it a lot more. I know many of you are still in school or college and either don't have a job or just a part time one and many of you have come to me asking how you can get all these amazing products you see at a price you can afford. So I did some extensive research and long behold I found SAVE ON MAKE UP.

This is one of the best brands I have found on the blogger programme from what they are about to what they sell. Save on make up have all the brands we love oh so much from L'Oreal to Clinique. They buy in bulk getting fresh stock everyday in order to be able to sell all these amazing products we want at discounted prices and there isn't a catch!

I have teamed up with Save on make up where they have challenged me to produce a wish list of all the products on their site I would love to have and I tell you narrowing it down so I didn't have the whole website on my blog was not easy at all! (haha) but after spending a long time ooing and aahing and contemplating these are the 5 items on save on make up I would love to own!


First on my list is this beautiful lipstick by Bobbi Brown. Oh my gosh I am just so in love with the colour of this. As you all know I have the tendency to go for very glossy mosturising pink lipsticks and this certainly fits the bill! I have been looking for a new pink lipstick for a while now that offers full coverage but is also light weight and doesn't dry out my lips and at £15 I haven't ever wanted a lipstick more. I AM IN LOVE.


Okay so the next item I saw and of course fell in love with is this palette by W7. So many of you came to me asking for a natural nudes eye palette which you could also create smokey eyes from just like this what was affordable and of high quality and I really wanted to and finding one seemed impossible until I came across this!.Unlike other palettes this one has a good range of both matte and shimmery shades that can be used during the day and night. From the pictures on their websites they look really pigmented and so lovely just like the packaging. It has very similar shades to that of the naked 1 palette and also comes with a really good double ended applicator. And the best part? It's only £4.66


These days I much prefer where false eyelashes to mascara, there is something I just love about putting on a pair of false eyelashes and the way they open up your eyes. These ones by Eye candy are absolutely gorgeous and have a really good size band for when it comes to applying ( lash adhesive is included). Eye candy have a really good range of different lashes to suit all occasions whether you are looking for everyday natural ones or more adventurous glam ones. They are lightweight and extremely comfortable to wear and only £1.99!


This is something I have seen a lot of people rave about and feel like because I haven't tried it I am missing out! This is a overnight serum that works to keep skin looking young and fresh by reducing wrinkles and fine lines without clogging pores or leaving skin greasy or oily. It is suitable for all skin types and although it is a little pricey it is almost half the price on Save on makeup (£29 and RRP is £50) and will be sure to last you a long time. it is enriched with hyaluronic acid so you wake up with a visibly luminous and more radiant complexion. This product just fills me with excitement!


The final thing on my wishlist is this gorgeous blusher by Lancome. It is honestly the most beautiful shade of pink I have ever seen. It is said to have great staying power and has moisture balancing ingredients. I love the packaging it's slim and can easily be taken about with you and basically I just love it I can say no more. 

I just wanted to finish this post off by telling you what i think to Save on make up overall and it's website. I have to say I love it! The website is really easy to navigate and has all the different product areas down the left hand side really clearly plus a search bar so if you are looking for a certain item you can find it really easily and quickly.They also have a sort of bargain area so you can all your really good high quality products even cheaper which in itself is AMAZING! It allows you to buy a few more things than you might be able to if they were more expensive and have more of a play around with make-up. They also have a good variety of different fragrances on offer which is something all of us on here love. The tabs are really clearly labelled i.e "contact us" so you can find any information you need easily and without any hassle. Delivery prices are really good. Although I am yet to personally order anything from them I know of many people who have said its very quick and the customer service is excellent! Overall I am really excited to order something from them and I really do love this brand :)

** All opinions are my own**


So I hope you enjoyed this post and if you did be sure to let me know! I am going to hold a giveaway of all the items in my wishlist so if you want to know more about that and get involved make sure you are following my blog and subscribed to my YouTube for more details :)

I will see you in my next post lovelies xxx

A snap without the crack or pop - Weekend Baking

Hello there my lovelies so as we are at that time of the year where leaves are changing colour, autumn is here and we are all cosying up with hot drinks, the one thing that excites me as much as Halloween and Christmas is knowing the bake off is back on our screens. Now I know we have reached the end of the series but all this bake off watching has inspired me to get up and do more baking myself. Baking is something I have always loved to do after everything make-up and fashion but I always tend to stick to the same ol classic bakes whether it's lemon drizzle cake, flapjack, butterfly cakes or jammy biscuits. Therefore I have set myself the challenge of baking something completely different at least once a week and I am going to share this with all of you and this week I have chosen...

Brandy Snaps

Okay so they don't sound that exciting or brilliant but according to Mary Berry herself they are classed as a technical challenge (and they aren't as easy as you'd think) . I've never really had brandy snaps before so they were something new for me to try too and I must say I had a lot of fun making them and to my surprise they don't actually have brandy in.. weird huh?..
So what does go into them? Read on to find out


50g butter
50g plain flour
50g demera sugar
50g golden syrup
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/2tsp ground ginger


You want to begin by  putting your oven on to 180 degrees celsius and lining a baking tray with non stick grease-proof paper (I just used a non stick tray and that worked fine). Next, mix together your butter, sugar and golden syrup in a small pan until the sugar has dissolved using a low heat  (it takes about 15 minutes).  You want to make sure the mixture doesn't crystallize so keep dragging your spoon across the bottom of the pan till it doesn't sound gritty. 

Then you want to leave the mixture to cool slightly for a few minutes before sieving in the dry ingredients (flour and ginger). Then add the lemon juice and give it a really good ol mix.

Then all you want to do is drop four teaspoonfuls of the mixture onto each of the prepared baking trays to make neat circles, about 10cm/4in apart. (when it comes to a later batch don't worry if the mixture has turned into a dough it still works fabby!)

You want to bake them in the oven for about 10-15 minutes, or until they are well spread out, look lacey and are a dark golden colour. This is the difficult part because when they come out you have to work super fast shape the brandy snaps and trust me you will be going oo eee ouch! (its easier if you bake one tray at a time). Leave for a minute or so to firm up slightly, then lift from the baking parchment using a fish slice. The mixture needs to be just firm enough to remove, but pliable enough to shape. Mary says to check by releasing around and under the edges with a small palette knife.

Quickly roll a circle of the warm mixture around the handle of the wooden spoon, having the join underneath. Press the join lightly together to seal, then slide the brandy snap off the spoon and leave it to firm up on the wire rack, again with the join underneath. If any of the circles on the sheet harden too much to work with, put them back in the oven for a few seconds to soften again. Repeat until all the mixture has been used. 

I will be honest the shaping part wasn't easy especially because my hands did not like having to work with something that hot but overall I was pretty pleased with how they came out. It says that the mixture makes 12-15 but I got 8 out of it - I do think mine were a lil too big though haha..I did burn the first lot for no other fault of my mine own ooops! but the other 4 came out amazing and I was so happy with them and they really do snap! I definitely will make these again no doubt about it because they actually tasted really good if not a bit like putting 20 stone on in 30 seconds, I hope you enjoyed this post and if you want to see more things like this be sure to let me know! eek and also just ton let you know I am back to doing my YouTube now so make sure to check that out if you'd like. I love you my beautiful human beings and I will speak to you in my next post, bye!

Hello again!

What do I love to do? I love reading blogs. For me being submersed in reading somebody else's blog is something actually quite special whether it's the most simplest of posts such as OOTD or more detailed and serious conversational posts about matters surrounding us at the this current time . Like many bloggers I also love to watch videos especially those which document day to day life (I'm a complete sucker for this because it's like catching up as if you know these people and they are your friends) but sometimes just reading words is really nice, like times you are all cosied up in winter and you just want a hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows and to read a book or have a bath. Another thing that I love is just being able to look endlessly through other peoples images and photos. I have always had such a love for photography and the whole concept behind it, how there is so many things you can do and explore when it comes down to it. My first photography teacher ever,told me if you have the passion for it and you work hard it is even possible to make the most obscure and seemingly ugly of things (let's go with a cabbage) look beautiful. I  sit there scrolling through blog posts with the heart eye emoji glued to my face especially when it comes to the likes of blogs such as In The Frow and even smaller blogs I'm sure you probably haven't even heard of.

This past month and a half there has been a lack well actually no posts from me. This was for a lot of reasons but I'm not going to sit here typing you a list of what you would probably say were "lame" excuses. But I think one reason which did definitely play a role was a lack of confidence not only in myself but in my blog and the content. I felt a lot of what was going onto my blog didn't scream out enough about me and who I am as a person to you guys and a lot of my posts were repetition repeat posts nothing that made me think people are going to want to read this and that's something I want to change because it  suddenly dawned on me that maybe other people feel the same way as I do when it comes to blogs and they have that with mine but there wasn't anything there for people to become engrossed and submerged in. Having had my blog on and off for a year now, it’s been one of those things that I go through phases of absolutely loving and then just really not liking at all. Over this past month my "schedule" has become a lot busier especially with going back to college .Multi tasking for me isn't easy especially when it comes to social media platforms such as blogger which takes a lot of creativity and hard work. Over time I feel like my blog has just got a bit dusty and tired and needs a good up lift, fresh content and really show my passion for all things beauty, fashion and life.

i didn't want to put any work into redesigning my blog too much just at the moment because the way it looks now I am quite happy with. The simplicity complete with the vibrant flowers at the top is something very me and the blog is really easy for you guys to navigate around. However I have gone through old posts edited and removed those that made me face palm and think what I was doing and lined up lots of new content so I can start to share everything with you again from how i'm feeling, places I have been and all bits fashion and beauty. Going through my old posts was like opening my old diary and digging up forgotten memories which in a way was really nice. If you are someone who has been here from the very beginning then hello again, welcome back, both me and my blog hasve missed you very much so and if you are new I hope you enjoy sitting back cosing up with a beverage and experiencing the crazy life of me "Carlisa"

Someday Summary- Friday

 I was completely and utterly overwhlemed with the response to my post "This so called perfect race of people". I had the biggest response I ever had on my blog and people are still responding now and so many of you were able to relate to it which made me so so so happy. Many of you shared your views on the topic and it was just lovely to read through everything you had to say, so remember you are all beautiful and I love every single one of you so much.
 The gorgeous Jess put a big ol smile on my face this morning:) (p.s. you should all check out her blog because it's just Ahmazing and she has more sass in one finger than I do in my whole body;) ()

 I made some fabby frozen strawberry yoghurt in the space of 10 mins and it tasted so delicious, I could eat another bowl of it right now..haha

 I've spent half of my day having a good clear out since the sun hasn't had the hat on despite it being into August (what is the deal with this?!) which meant I got to play good old pop music from the younger days and sing to it all out loud since nobody was home.
 And finally I know I have already said this today but I just want to say a a big massive thank you to everyone who follows my blog. Even if you don't follow my blog, but come by every now and then to check up on it. I'm probably as dull as watching paint dry so god knows why many of you enjoy reading my rambling nonsense but it makes me very happy you do.I don't really understand it to be honest but ahhhh.


Okay this is a quick post to just say THIS IS CRAZY, I logged onto my blog this morning to find I now have 141 of you lovely people following me, like what?! I started my blog to simply write about the things I love, as a hobby and to offer advice to those who want it. I honestly have no idea why all you amazing people want to follow me but just know I appreciate and love you all very much!!!

Oh it's a mess up there

And my quote of today is...

Can we just take a minute to appreciate how pretty this edit of the quote looks..

I'm making this a quick one to why I love this quote because I think this quote speaks for itself's just simply wonderful and reflects the truth..if I got started making jewellery or editing photos/videos whatever, everything around me is scattered everywhere to what I've used, my idea sheets everything and it applies to everybody creative I just LOVE LOVE LOVE this quote simple as:)

A slightly late July Favourites..

These are a range of my most used/favourite products from July! (Be warned some of the things are very random;)..

Clarins Beauty Flash Balm

I have always wanted to give this a go and try it, so when my much loved Clinque primer was all used up ( I even cut the bottle in half and scraped every last bit out) I contemplated investing in it but ended up choosing the more poopy Elf one which gave me red irritable patches:( but long behold my sister brought me this back from Duty Free and oh my gosh it is friggin incredible. Honestly this product is AWESOME!
It creates such a good flawless base and you can really feel it tighten your skin and see the glow, the only issue I found is to me it smelt slightly grannified if that's even a thing?;) or that bar soap you were forced to use as a kid in school (I hated that stuff!), but once you get past the smell this product is a real gem. It doesn't irritate my skin and it has been lasting absolutely ages. I've had it over a month now and I still have at least half of it left. Definitely a worthwhile investment :) 

Estee Lauder Lipstick- 301 Crystal Baby

This lipstick is  super pigmented and the most gorgeous of pinky nude shades. I am very impressed with it, definitely worth the money!.
I also LOVE the smell, it reminds me of forest fruit frubes haha.
I have been wearing this everyday constantly, it goes with everything and isn't drying out on the lips in any way it's extremely moisturising and has replaced my MAC Myth satin lipstick as my favourite. 
Also it lasts a decent amount of time.
It is simply fabby:)

Soap And Glory Thick And Fast Mascara 

I struggled so much finding this mascara because every time I went to buy it, it was out of stock and I didn't want to buy it online as a single item and have to pay delivery.
I'd heard everyone rave about it and of recent Velvetgh0st did on her channel, so I really wanted to give it a go.I did however, manage to find it in a store further away from me and obviously I bought it straight away.I actually really love the effect this mascara has on the eyes and the way it applies. The rave was certainly within reason. It is really high quality and doesn't have a cheap tacky smell to it and of yet *touch wood* not caused my lashes to clump.
Although, I must say it hasn't removed or replaced my love for the benefit roller lash or Maybelliene big eyes, it's just a good alternative for when I am in need.
But all praise Soap And Glory for this fabby mascara!

Yeo Valley Limited Edition Papaya And Lime Yoghurt

Yes, yes I have included a pot of yoghurt in my favourites..haha..but I have just loved this yoghurt and it's been one of my favourite things this month so it's only right I include it isn't? When I first saw this on the supermarket shelf I can't say it appealed to me because it just seemed such an odd flavour and i'm pretty sure the only reason I decided to buy it was because I loved the packaging (good enough reason right?;)). Anyway this yoghurt is actually so so good and tastes nothing like you'd expect it to! It isn't laugh your ears off tangy but it isn't sickly sweet either it's just the perfect balance. The best part is it is good for you and healthy and tastes amazing with a whole array of fruit especially raspberries and blueberries:) as the flavour isn't that strong or overpowering and it just makes me want to eat breakfast which I always try to avoid because I am not a breakfast person at all.
Yeo Valley you did good!

Orphan Black

 I had been contemplating watching this for months on Netflix after so many people were raving about it and telling me to watch it. When somebody first mentioned it to me I was honestly like oh my gosh that sounds really dark and gory (there is moments when I do squeal and have to run out the room;)) and just not my sort of program at all so I put off watching but I finally did it and watched an episode and it is honestly so so good! I'm not going to say too much so not to spoil it, but if you haven't watched it and your into programs such as PLL (pretty little liars) and Once Upon A Time definitely watch it and give it a chance as I am sure you will love it and get hooked after the first few episodes just like I did:)

Sprakling eyes

Why hello there my lovelies, it's that time of the day again when I share a quote with you all (I say that and it's only my second time doing one of these posts;)..) and today it is one by Roald Dahl which I just can't get enough of. I grew up reading Roald Dahl and was forever enticed by the stories he wrote and the wonderful adventures he took us all on and this quote is one I remind myself of all the time and just like Roald Dahl it is simply magnificent.
As I recall this quote was the very last line wrote in his very last children's book "The Minpins" One of his less popular books it is but also was one of my favourites! The reason for my love of this quote you may ask? It's honestly like receiving a sprinkling of hope and belief over you when you read it ( oh boi me describing quotes is worse than me describing scents;))  It reminds you that the best opportunities arise when you least expect them to do so, therefore you must always go into every situation with a positive open mind because you never know what may come out of them and the situations you expect to be the worse may be when the greatest things come to light and that something amazing can come from every situation. Basically I just love it, love it, love it and hope you do too! :)

Glowing Review

Did somebody say review? I think they did. Candles are a necessity. If I could have them lit in every room of the house, at every hour of the day I would do. I would buy a candle every time I ventured outside of the house if possible. This feels like my first proper review in a long while (more to come I promise) and it is definitely my first along the homely sort of line but at 17 I can honestly say I am simply obsessed with homeware and anything in relation! I love every aspect of things such as interior design and constantly wish I could rearrange my bedroom a different way because I love doing so! Nobody understands my excitement for the day I am able to move out for the reason I can buy lots of homeware ( how sad..haha)

Onto the review itself I actually got this candle around Christmas time I think?;).. I know haha that was a long time back but it just looked so pretty and perfect. I had something inside me that wouldn't let me burn it and instead used it as an ornament and left the scent to diffuse naturally until it collected a thick cloud of dust on it from being kept on a shelf for months;) 

Let's begin by talking about the packaging. I absolutely love the packaging I am going to be honest.It’s pretty and girly and consists of a gorgeous swirly pattern but also the use of a more deep plummy purple in contrast to the white stops it from being too girly and doesn't look childish and out of place in a home. I really love the pattern detail on the label and it just makes for really sophisticated professional packaging. It's just so pretty!:) As odd as this may sound the packaging feels very suited to the scent, when I look at the packaging, I imagine it to be the scent that candle is, ( I know that sounds totally bonkers but think about it this way pretty pink packaging you would think fruity/floral scent straight away right?;))..I was also impressed with the size, the candle is of a generous size and I can see it lasting quite a while (I think it's supposed to burn for 40 hours which is AHMAZING).
This has to be one of my favourite candles in a long while. I adore the smell. Many have said it smells like like Earl Grey tea but don't don't be put off by that . I have never had Earl grey tea so I can't compare. It has a very sweet "candy" smell to it with floral and citric notes.I know that probably sounds a right mismatch of smells ( I'm terrible at describing scents I know;))..But honestly it smells incredible!

 I found as I burnt it the wick it isn't the fattest so trying to burn the full tin of it out isn't all that easy so make sure to keep it somewhere flat and then you should have no problems with it.

Honestly I have nothing more to say about this gorgeous candle,I would repurchase it but it could have been made a bit better maybe if the candle wasn't white as I love something vibrant but that isn't anything major. & I do find the smell lingers & leaves my room smelling beaut:).
Love love love this.

A quote a day..

Okay, okay I know this is my 3rd post today my pretties but I promise this is my last one today and it's a quick one! I have had a lil idea that I wanted to do something a bit different on my blog and that was to put a quote up everyday. I absolutely love quotes and sayings and go by a lot of them and thought a good way of sharing them with you is to put one up everyday on my blog that I have thought about that day or just simply wanted to share and hopefully they will work as a reminder to you if you are having a bad day and simply put a smile on your face:) This is something I really want to try and if you guys like it I will keep doing it because I want my content to make you happy and of course if you have any quotes that you love be sure to let me know and I will include them on one of the days!:)

So my first quote is going to be..

I thought I would sum this post up by saying the reason I love this quote so much. To me it is such a comforting powerful quote and just feels as I am getting a virtual hug from all of you and everybody else. It is one of the most relevant quotes I have ever come across and applies to endless situations. It's just that lil reminder to you and everybody else no matter how long it takes you will get there and you are stronger than you ever know. If you haven't heard it before or you ever tell yourself you "can't" do something, or you don't have anyone to say it to you and give you a hug and say you can, this post is dedicated to you. Every time you have told yourself you can't, you have, remember...

You got this xx

I guess I could share a beauty tip or 3..

From much experimentation and learning myself (which is still ongoing and will continue to do for years and years) I have already learnt some things about make-up. Personally I think there is a few key important things that everybody should know when it comes to make-up whether it's buying it or applying it. (that kinda rhymed or it did at least in my mind;)). If you have little experience or just starting out with make-up it can go completely WRONG. It still does go wrong for me!

My make-up isn't perfect at all, and I have spent the last year researching and practicing,  trying new techniques and products endlessly and I will continue to do so for years. So today I thought I would share a few tips on what I see to be essential when it comes to getting your make-up looking as flawless as it can be. Make-up is an endless creative outlet and learning is something that will never stop!

1.  Take the time to find your perfect match..

I know, I know, you are all going to be sat here like we know finding our perfect match is important, but I can't stress enough how important it is to find your match from foundation to blusher .It is honestly sooo easy to end up with a face like a tangerine or casper the ghost,even blusher that looks like you just came out of a circus tent after your latest clown performance, That doesn't mean there is only going to be one shade of blusher you can ever use or one concealer, you can still use a variety of different blusher shades but be aware that not all shades will suit you. It is a really good and easy idea to go to your local department store and just ask the lovely girls behind the counter and speak to them if you are new to make-up or want to learn more about what will suit you. The girls are there to help to you and they will be happy to do so, there has always been abit of a stereotype around them that they can be snobby or rude but the majority will help and be able to give you really good advice!

2.It's all about the blending baby

Another thing I can't stress enough is to BLEND BLEND BLEND. I know for a lot of you lovelies reading this will see this as common sense but the amount of times I have seen girls time after time with their make-up not blended and they look like a patch work quilt their grandma made. Your skin will become clogged, you will have that dreaded horrible jaw line that nobody wants and look like you just entered your local drag queen contest with all the harsh colours,that's a look none of us girls want. So if you take anything away from this post just remember to blend!:)
cool look? how about no:)
3. Brushes, an investment must!

This kind of links back to my previous point of blending to do a really good job of creating a flawless look. Brushes are key! I'll be honest when I first got into make-up and started learning more about it I did initially think brushes were a waste of time and money and I could easily do all my make-up using my trusty hands and fingers but boi was I wrong! . (Even Eyeshadow was applied by fingers at first..oh what was I thinking haha..) ..You know when you look back on old pictures and think oh god what was I wearing? Yeah I look back and think what was I thinking..brushes make such a difference!
HUGE HUGE HUGE difference (oh I am liking caplocks and repating words three times today;)). I never used to believe it but trust me they work:). They just make everything more even, precise and give your whole make-up overall a more professional flawless finish. 
You don't even have to spend a lot on them if you don't have all that much money. Make-up is very much like any other hobby take for example some people collect stamps if that's what they are into ( Good example Sian because everybody collects stamps;) lol)
but instead of collecting stamps if interested in make-up you collect palettes,blushers etc and all the brushes up over the years.

That is all for this post my pretties and I am also thinking of doing an updated Instagram diary today since many of you loved that post:) I hope you enjoyed it and if you would like to know more of my beauty tips be sure to let me know!

They were how much?!

For what seems months I have been drooling over and wanting some tassel loafers. Yes the formally known as granny shoes have been very much in the past few months but everywhere I looked I either didn't like them, they didn't have my size or I wasn't up to paying the price. I saw some amazing ones in Office however the £65 price tag felt a lot for me to pay not because of the quality but I just didn't really want to pay that much for something I didn't actually really need not that I could afford them either.  Long behold however I found these beooutiful tassel loafers in New Look in a lovely pastelly pink colour and how much we're they you may ask?! This is the best part £2! Yes that is right £2! They were reduced in the sale from £20 to £2 I was so happy to then find out they had my size (this literally never happens) I was straight to the tills to buy them and oh my gosh they are honestly such comfy shoes and broke in within hours of having them on (yes I wore them on the same day I bought them) The colours means they are really versatile and I can wear them with absolutely everything from jeans to dresses and I am just so happy with them arghh:) I'm even considering going back and getting them in blue I love them that much;)

The picture on the left shows the Office ones and the picture on the right the ones I bought from New Look literally no difference between them at all, I am sure the Office ones are slightly better quality but at £2 I can't go wrong with the ones I have got and New Look shoes have always lasted for me

Yes, Always!
-For the face?
-What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
At this time of the year definitely a lovely gold colour with a warm brown in the crease 
-Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
Liquid mainly but pencil occasionally if I use eyeliner on my water line
-How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
All the time! You don't understand how many times my concealer has to be redone and foundation touched up! I have taken to doing my eye make-up first because of this!
-What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
Love them! I mean they are just so pretty:)
-Do you use mineral makeup?
-What is your favorite lipstick?
I can honestly not answer that! I love so many lipsticks for so many different reasons but look out for a video on my current favourites;)..
-How about lipgloss?
All of Tanya Burrs are incredible!!

-What is your favorite blush to use?
At the moment I love love love Sleek Rose Gold it is BEAUTIFUL OJHGOSH
-Do you buy your makeup on ebay?
No only ever nail varnishes! It honestly makes me so nervous and you have no idea if it is fake or not!
-Do you like drugstore makeup?
Ofc it's everybody's starting point when it comes to make-up and there is so many incredible drugstore make-up brands there with such a range of products, many of my favourite brands are drugstore and I tend to prefer them over higher end brands a lot of the time!
-Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)
I have but not so much and of recent no:(
-Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
No I have always enjoyed learning about make-up but I prefer to do that from the comfort of my own home watching YouTube Tutorials and teaching myself, I just find it so much more fun that way, I love to learn things independently and it is so much cheaper!
-Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
I can be, I mean we all have the occasional issues with eyeliner and getting them wings right or getting that contouring bang on;)
-Name a makeup crime that you hate?
I don't hate anything, If someone does something with their make-up that I personally wouldn't then there is nothing wrong with that, Why should it bother me? You know whatever, if it makes them happy then that is all that matters and people shouldn't shame someone for how they like to do their make-up Just because I wouldn't like it on me or they wouldn't like it on themselves, If you feel good then go for it! like who cares??
-Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
It can depend on the day or should I say season, but really more neutral tones on the eyes just because I like to wear quite bold lipstick and have that as my statement, but when it comes to summer I do prefer more pinky/nude shapes lipsticks so I tend to be a little more bold with my eye make-up
-Which celebrity always has great make up?
Kendall Jenner always had a good make-up game going on and oh my gosh Blake Lively
-If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item,what would you use?
Either Concealer or Mascara ( I have thee worlds stubbiest eyelashes)
-Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
I could and I have, but I tend to wear make-up because I enjoy make-up so much and being able to use it as a creative outlet
-Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
Uhm..Idk..I think I look ok? without make-up on but there is always them times where you don't and I am a very self-conscious person, I feel a lot of pressure that other girls do..Sometimes I do feel like " Oh my gosh I have bad under eye circles I must wear enough concealer to cover up today" We all have our insecurities at the end of day 
-In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
That's impossible but any which have a variety of products and aren't too expensive
-What do you think of Makeup? 
I think make-up is such a good creative outlet that people sometimes under mime to what you can do with it, when it comes to make-up there is endless possibilities, it's something I get excited about and find joy in doing and I know a lot of people don't understand it but it's like we all have our individual things that we love to do, I could sit in my room and spend hours experimenting with make-up because I love it that much, There is so much you can learn and it never stops and millions of videos to learn these new things and you can share these things and learn together as a community, There is no right or wrong way with doing it, Taking the naked basics palette for example there is 6 shades in that but endless amounts of looks you can create with them shades, even using the darkest shade (crave) and you can create a winged look without rather than using eyeliner

Reading that back and oh my gosh how many times did I say love, literally as many times as I would say literallly in 10 minutes;)..
