Top tips & tricks for barely there makeup

Makeup/ Tips

Anyone who knows me personally would know that I’ve never been a fan of heavy makeup. As much as I love a good dark lip for a night out, when it comes to my everyday look, I like to keep it as natural as possible. A few products to brighten up the eyes and lips and I’m good to go! 🙂

So here are some of my top tips for that ‘barely there’ makeup look:

1. Scrub up well
Your skin is your canvas, so a mini pampering session is probably more important than anything you do after that. Cleanse, exfoliate, wash and then tone – do NOT forget to moisturise.

2. Stick to neutrals
Since the whole purpose of a ‘barely there’ look is to make it seem like you aren’t wearing much makeup,  stick to neutral tones that blend well with your skin.

3. Define the lash
It’s always important to play up the eyes when you are going for this look. Add one or two layers of mascara to draw out your eyes more – remember not to get too carried away.

4. Tinted moisturiser
Tinted moisturiser is an absolute lifesaver! It is very light so you never have to worry about having that ‘heavy’ look that some foundations can give you.

5. Bronze it up
A bit of bronzer is a good way to add some life into your face. Contour around your temples and the hollows of your cheeks – not only will it liven you up but it will also slim you down!

What is your go-to product for that barely there look? If you have one, then I’d love to hear from you! 🙂

    There’s nothing worse than setting your eyes on a new lippy, falling in love with it and then realising that it is way over your normal lipstick budget. ‘Steal or splurge?’ is the question I find myself asking when I’m trying to decide how badly I really need –or want…

How to stay single

Dating

This is probably going to be the shortest post I’ll ever write on this blog, the reason being that I originally intended for this to be a tweet. However, my inner satirist felt compelled to share it with a wider audience, so here are three simple steps for staying  happily single:

Step 1: Send the person you’re seeing a psycho “breakup” text when you’re menstruating

Step 2: Let the argument escalate to the point where you actually break up

Step 3: Convince yourself that it was never going to work anyways

For more sarcasm and satire, check out 12 things I learned from being on POF  🙂

Review: Glasses Shop

product review

Up until recently, I would have found the prospect of purchasing prescription glasses online ludicrous. Being someone who is quite set in their ways and always hesitant when it comes to taking seemingly big risks, I would have always had to muster up a whole lot of courage to buy any sort of glasses online without having tried them on first.

So when I was approached by GlassesShop.com to do a collaboration with them on their newest styles of eyeglasses and sunglasses, I wasn’t entirely sure about what to make of it or which glasses to choose until I slowly started to fall in love with the different frames on their website. For someone who usually sticks to the simple black plastic rectangular frame, you would think the decision to choose a complimentary pair of glasses would be easy – it wasn’t.

From the cat eye look to aviator frames, I was spoiled for choice,making the decision even harder. So after bombarding different Whatsapp groups with pictures of my top ten frames – I know, that many! I finally decided on a pair that looked incredibly different to what I would normally go.

I sent on the frame details to GlassesShop.com along with my Rx and PD and within two weeks my prescription glasses arrived!

When I first tried them on, I was a bit taken aback as it was a completely new look for me. I always knew that the glasses I had been wearing until now didn’t show off my eyes enough as my eyes are quite big for someone who has a small face, so the larger frame of my new glasses really worked for me.

I was especially impressed by the fit also. I didn’t have to get any adjustments at all, they just sit perfectly on my face –  and now the more I wear them, the more they’re growing on me!

What I particularly like about shopping on GlassesShop.com is that they seem to have something for nearly everyone. There is a wide selection of styles, shapes and frames to choose from and if you are anything like me and get nervous about shopping for glasses online, then you might find their guide on how to choose the right eyeglasses incredibly helpful.

Another bonus for using this site to buy glasses online is that you can also get prescription sunglasses and all their prescription glasses come with a 90-day quality guarantee so it’s a win:win really!

I have finally gotten over my fear of buying eyeglasses online, now it’s time for you to do the same! I have a special coupon code GSHOT50  that gives you 50% off any eyeglasses or sunglasses with free lenses (with the exception of sale frames) It might just make the decision for you to buy a pair of glasses online, a little bit easier! 🙂
