Bare It All

32 comments

This post is a little different, yeah its a face of the night and all that but I thought it would be interesting to wipe off all the makeup and show my real face.
I feel in this day and age girls are so scared to be seen without any makeup even when they are going to the shops for five minutes, I feel makeup is there to enhance the features you already have.






I am a complete amateur when it comes to makeup, it just isn't my thing at all, I don't in any way think i'm remotely good at it, a lot of it for me is trial and error. Usually when I go on nights out, this is the makeup I wear, I don't use foundation daily, just on really big nights out. All the products in the picture above have lasted me well over a year so they are worth it, my contour kit is on its lest leg though, I swear by sleeks makeup range, it is so so so good, I used their powder over my foundation so its matted down a little. For my lips I put on Topshops All About Me on the base and NYX soft matte lip cream in shade Addis Ababa, both of these colours together make such a beautiful shade which I love. My eye shadow pallet from eBay hardly ever gets used, as I don't think eye shadows suit me, but I wanted to try something different so I added a little gold and brown to my lids and I actually really really like them, think i'm going to do it more often when I go out. I added a little bit of black eye shadow on my waterline for more of an effect and the littlest bit of white eyeliner pencil too. 

and now... DUN DUN DUN

my face when I wiped all that slap off. 



To be honest, wiping off makeup is one of my many joys, I hate stuff like not being able to rub your eyes because you have eyeliner on and things like that. I guess I'm pretty blessed, as all my I've never really had an interest in make-up, so I have grown to feel comfortable with my make up free face. I do enjoy makeup though and how it enhances our features, nothing wrong with that, but sometimes I think its good just to take it all off and realise that you actually are beautiful and don't need to always really on makeup. 
OK enough of that soppy stuff, the floral crown I am wearing I MADE IT, I'm so proud of my efforts and I think I'm going to start a little floral crown business sometime soon, as I enjoy making them and floral crowns from other shops are far too expensive, SO HOLLA IF YOU WANT ONE! 
The dress im wearing is from eBay, it is the bomb, Its very similar to the one Demi Lovato wore to the Xfactor USA auditions last year, im in love with it. Just one more thing, Im off to LA in just under 3 weeks and im so excited, I started eating healthy, gyming and I did the 30 day shred and im pretty chuffed with my results, my cheeks arnt as big as they used to be haha, but I cant recommend the 30 day shred enough, Juilan Michaels is a G. 
Anyways talk again soon, im on a roll with these blog posts!

  9. you look absolutely beautiful with and without the makeup. I am like you. although i love wearing make up the best part about wearing it is taking taking it all off and having fresh skin. I am so jealous of your LA trip but hope you have fun and take lots of pics :)
