Collection Extreme Felt Liner

I have such a love/hate relationship with liquid eye liner. Every single one I have tried in the past has either smudged, melted down my face or been an absolute nightmare to apply. Never did I think I would find a product, that lasted well and was easy to use, from the drugstore.

The collection Extreme Liner is a felt tip pen style product that contains a opaque black liquid, that is an absolute dream to apply. The tip isn't too sturdy, you get some movement meaning you can get different effects depending on the pressure you apply. 

The formula, I promise you, is bullet-proof. I have worn this to college on my dance heavy days and sweated like and absolute pig (lovely, right?) and this hasn't even budged a bit. I've also worn it on a recent shopping trip to Birmingham and repeatedly tried on tops/jumpers/dresses etc, and this didn't smudge at all. Once you apply it, it sets quickly and you can be sure that it will look just as good at the end of the day as it did when you applied it. 

This is an absolute dream of a product, costs under £5 and is super easy to get a hold of. I would 100% recommend, if like me, you struggle with getting liner to last. 

You can purchase Collection products at a lot of places, but I usually get mine from Boots - (Here)

Natural make-up for hooded eyes

Prime the lids then apply Naked through the crease, the key is to apply it with your eyes open and take the placement slightly higher than your natural crease. Then to deepen it slightly, I focused Buck in my natural crease. To bring some light to the lid, I washed Sin over the entire mobile lid, then placed sin right in the centre to add even more highlight. I ran buck underneath the lower lashline. I decided to skip liner, but if you are an eyeliner addict you can add a thin line, the idea is to keep the lid as visible as possible! I then curled my lashes using the Shu Emura lash curlers and followed up with L'oreal Miss Manga mascara in the waterproof formula.

Eyes to Mesmerise

I spend hours and hours binge watching Charlotte Tilbury's YouTube Videos, making lists as long as my arm of the products I want to try from her range. However, it's hellishly expensive so on a recent trip into Birmingham Selfridges, I limited myself to one thing and after much debating I went for the Eyes to Mesmerise cream shadow in the shade Bette - A warm coppery bronze.

The pot is so bloody luxurious, the glass base and the lid embossed with Charlotte's signature rose gold logo standout within my make-up collection. But of course, it's the product inside that is certainly drool-worthy. It's a weightless cream formula, packed with immense pigment and a metallic wet look finish.

The only thing I was dissapointed about was the longevity; within a couple of hours of wear it had collected in the crease. Concidering it cost £22 I was hoping it wouldn't need a primer underneath. The creasing was even worse once I had layered it up for an evening event for an intense finish. 

The colour and the finish is nothing like I've ever owned before and as long as I wear a primer underneath I can get the most beautiful eye shadow look suitable for both day and evening. Plus it makes my dark blue eyes stand out a treat and I'd imagine it would look just as beautiful on all eye colours. 

You can purchase Charlotte Tilbury products from Selfridges and, however I noticed on the John Lewis Instagram this week that they were doing a shoot with her, hopefully this means she's coming to JL - hello 25% off!
