Another Make-up transformation

Now I have never ever said I am a makeup expert. Everything I do I have learnt from other people.

I very much love colour, to be honest I dont wear a lot of make-up day to day just because my skin is very spot prone.

I am confident enough in my own skin to walk out without makeup but sometime I think it help “enhance” certain features such as eyes, lips and shape.

So starting from (the bottom, bad joke) base. No makeup NOTHINGGGGG!!

So underneath is showing the fully finished look. Somehow I managed to fix the fringe from the first picture.

So starting with the base on my make up…. I always use Witch Skin Clearing Primer (£6.99). This primer is good for oily and combination skin.

To cover dark circles and spots I use a slightly darker concealer but I blend it out. I use Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer (£7.99).

On days that I want lighter coverage I use a BB Cream, the one I have is Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream  (£7.99), (plus this is specifically for oily skin) but for this look to last all day I went for a heavier coverage to cover my spots (even tho in the long run it isnt a good thing to do) I usually use Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation in ivory. The Powder I use is Maybelline- Fit Me 125 (£5.99) to apply this I use the powder brush from my Fraulein 38 Brush Set (About £12 when I purchased), I got this from amazon.

Yes I know my face looks uneven, I am spotty the list goes on but I just felt like saying this is realist, I am not trying to make myself look perfect. But I accept myself for what I am.

From amazon is also from Fraulein 38. This is the 183 colour eyeshadow, highlight, Blush and bronze palette (About £12?). Using the dark brown colour(In the contour kit), I use a smaller brush from the above kit to fill in my eyebrows, and a colour that matches my skin to highlight around. Using a contoured brush apply the bronzed brown to the contours of your cheeks, small amounts to either side of the temple and nose. Using the white powder contrasting the bronzer on the tops of the cheeks middle of nose and middle temple apply small amounts using blush brush. Finally using the purple/pink in the palette apply this to the apple of the cheeks.

Using a metallic purple for the base on the eyes and blue for the contouring of eyes. Now for the eyeliner yet again maybelline until  now I didn’t think I had this much of an obsession. Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Liner Black Eyeliner (£7.99). I was going for a cat sorta style.

Nowww lippyyy a lovely bright colour which compliments the purple pink punch in the Color Sensational range (£6.99).

If I knew the mascara I would tell you but this is as much as I know….. it is white and I got a free in some posh mag. But let me tell you it is pretty amazing stuff!!!!!

I made a new video eventually…………. I’ve now decided to do a youtube series. Consisting of 1 take videos after all my computer issues. I’ve come to it that it doesn’t matter anymore.  So after being through a couple of break ups I decided to give my view on them and how I deal with them.

Not saying this is how it goes just how I deal with it.

 

If I didn’t love you so

Overwhelming feelings,dropping to the floor.
Tears spilling over the edge, too afraid to open up.

I won’t let you go, everything was so perfect.
If only I didn’t love you so.

Hearing those words you dread, “it’s over”,
Knowing it’s no more, holding on tight.

I won’t let you go, everything was so perfect.
If only I didn’t love you so.

Questions racing through my head, Who?, Where?,
Why?, How?, no No NO NO! NOT THIS TIME.

I won’t let you go, everything was so perfect.
If only I didn’t love you so.

My hand slips from yours, Last attempt calls.
Drowning in a pool of tears, Suffocating, unable to breath.

I won’t let you go, everything was so perfect.
If only I didn’t love you so.

“Dyslexia An Advantage Not A Hold Back”

Even though this is my first post I thought I would chuck myself in at the deep end…..

So I’m not enteirly sure what this blog is going to contain but hopefully some people may find it interesting. Just to give myself a little background I am currently 19 and at university. Although I wouldn’t call myself the typical student…. I can cook, clean and do work. Partying well the less spoke of that the better I think till we get to know each other better.

I really do enjoy outside of studying healthy eating and exercise, don’t get me wrong I LOVE  a good film and a pic n mix. Mostly I am fairly healthy. As you read other posts you may learn that I love my bike she’s like my baby…. that I don’t take very good care of. And food well baking is kinda a passion of mine even if it doesn’t always turn out the way it should. Technically I am a “Youtuber” STOP before you get excited I’m barely past 18 subs and after so much camera hassle and things but I carry on uploading when I can. I you want to check it out my channel name is …….. Loridori94 yes very original shhhh leave me alone it was a nickname that stuck.

Back to the actual subject matter..

dyslexia

I may have strayed away from my topic which isn’t really unusual. Now the image above I think sums up how a lot of people feel. Dyslexia although with the right tools should not hold anyone back in fact I think it helps people see things in new and exciting ways. Many famous actors, scientists and artists all have it. With the right frame of mind the world is your oyster.

Everyone is different learning what your strengths and weakness is the key so success. You say but look what shes written, the spelling  is correct  (It kinda makes sense, okay it does to me, it may not to anyone else). I have software which helps me to spell and you know word’s spell checker helps also. My weakness is writing ,soo as  they say practice makes perfect. Ask me to draw I’m fine, Ask me to do a multiple choice or short answer exam I’m fine. Ask me to write, byeeeee then see you in 3 months when I crawl out of my cave.

But before I was diagnosed, I was never the thick kid in the class I always tried hard and developed “coping” mechanisms. Such as unknowingly writing EVERYTHING down just in case. Or give up because I was never going to keep up. Even now writing essays are the biggest pain in my…. So I thought I’d share some techniques I use.

I am a visual and Kinesthetic (doing) learner. So this means for me making/ doing and looking at pictures is a big aid in my learning. The unfortunate thing is this doesn’t really help write a 3,000 word essay to you introduce a lovely piece of software called inspiration. Honestly the essay I am currently writing feels so much better. What this software lets you do is use mind maps to plan your essays and expand ideas. This then can be converted into a word document and with a few tweeks and proof reading you are nearly there.

Think outside of the box….. My bedroom last week consisted of body diagrams and matching games. My cycling route was the was the blood travels round the body. In the exam having these images in my head. Maths is one of my strong points in being a left brained thinker, during revision and learning try to use both sides. What side are you?

Set goals, if you hit them then they feel amazing. If not you know you have got something to work on.

Remember everyone is different.

See you all soon.
