Click the products to be instantly directed to the site to purchase. These are my genuine everyday products – I feel as though a lot of blogging sites cheat their readers by solely advertising products that they’ve been paid to. I would always want to be honest with you guys and hope these products can be a part of your life. ALSO, just a heads up – A lot of these products are discounted at the moment so grab them whilst you can!

Another part of my beauty regime is my Beauty Box from ‘Look Fantastic’. Every month they send out a box of products worth £65. My last one was the ‘Jet Setter’ box and it’s so useful as you can find out what beauty products actually suit you without splashing out a load of cash on wasted items that end up not working with your skin type. It’s also very exciting when it comes in the post as you never know what’s going to be in the box!11140463-2144392532120434

Hey guys. So usually – my makeup tutorials would be exclusive for members ONLY. However, this week I wanted to make this one public for everyone so you can catch a glimpse of what members actually get to see. A lot of people tweet/message me saying that they don’t understand what the membership includes when you sign up. Well this is one of the many GREAT features that you get to see once you sign up for membership.

Last months diary entry was all about my TRUE experience on the X Factor along with behind the scenes/never before seen videos.

There’s also ‘Playlist Of The Month’ where I post covers of my favourite songs EXCLUSIVELY for members. And of course the makeup tutorials. Last months tutorial was showing you guys how I get my day-to-day makeup look. If you sign up now you’ll be able to see last months entries as well as this current months!

So, I’m going to be completely honest – this blog would be boring if I pretended everything was perfect all the time BUT I was a LITTLE disappointed at some of the outfit decisions this year at the Golden Globes. These gorgeous ladies just didn’t seem flaunt it as much as usual in my opinion – I felt like a lot of the celebs played it super safe… maybe they’re still feeling a little lazy from Christmas. However – there were some pleasant decisions that gave me dress envy! By the way – there will be NO worst dressed list – I may be stylishly honest but I DO NOT pit women against other women. ‘Worst dressed lists’ need to be abolished from every magazine and online publication. 

These are my top 3!

Coincidentally, my favourite outfits this year are ALL in the pink palette! Maybe I’m feeling some kinda girly way but I just feel like these ladies actually made a real statement and took some risks.goldenglobestop3Kate Hudson, Cate Blanchett, Kate Bosworth

 Kate Hudson got it all out and played a tough game in a VERY nude Michael Kor’s number – this colour is SO hard to pull off as it has the capability of completely drowning you out – especially as a white girl. And she manages to pull it off without having a major orange spray tan. People tend to over-compensate on the tan when wearing nude numbers like this in order to stand out. Cate Blanchett blew me away in this 1920’s style, PINK PINK PINK (the best pink i’ve ever seen actually) Givenchy Haute Couture frock. This dress is absolutely beautiful, full of detail and looks like it costs a million dollars. Definitely the most couture of the Golden Globes. And Kate Bosworth was another one of my firm favourites in this Dolce&Gabanna floor length gown. It fits her like a glove and compliments her tiny frame. The structure of the dress is incredible along with the jewel finish. I would kill for this dress. She looks absolutely on point – I don’t know how anyone would’t love this dress!

The Neutral Palette Gang!

These ladies didn’t quite make my top 3 but I still appreciated these beautiful looks. I’m a massive fan of Rosie HW and as usual, she slays in this vintage style, Atelier Versace dress. It is truly tasteful. I appreciate her neat hair and makeup choice that lets the dress do the talking. I’m not particularly familiar with Brie Larson but I think her Calvin Klein dress is stunning and extremely flattering – I do however feel like her she should have done an up-do hair wise. A slick ponytail or bun would have given her a bit of edge with such a form-fitting dress. Floor length, glittering gowns have the danger of looking ‘prom day’ without the right hair and makeup. Rooney Mara also impressed me with her fragile, detailed, Alexander Mcqueen frock. I love the vintage-rag doll look that she’s gone for. Her vampy hair and makeup compliment the dress like a treat.

Admittedly, I have a little crush on Lily James. Even though she did beat me to the role of Cinderella – But we’ll forgive her as she seems like a really cool girl. I think this white Marchesa gown looks perfect on her – still keeping to her fairytale theme but she looks sexy at the same time with the sheerness of the gown and her smokey makeup. Good choice girl!

The Red Ladies

Jennifer Lawrence, Amber Heard, Zendaya ColemangoldenglobesredThese aren’t my favourite dresses but these ladies deserve a mention! Jennifer Lawrence who i’m a huge fan off played it safe in this cut-out Dior dress. I appreciate the minimal/modern look of the dress but what brought it to life was the large chain necklace! Always trust an accessory! Amber Heard also looked stunning as usual in this pretty Gucci Couture frock. She almost looked royal! I felt like the dress was actually more of a copper colour than red – very unusual. Zendaya who always kills it for me did resemble the flamenco dancer emoji a tiny bit but she still slayed!! The colour looked beautiful against her complexion and the deep V neck added that sexy touch for her. She looked incredible.

UNTIL NEXT YEAR!!

You girls are forever asking for makeup tips, tutorials and products i’m loving .. so this week i’ve put together a whole page of products that make up my regular my day-to-day look with direct links to purchase straight away. EASY! I have obviously scoured the cheapest websites for these products too. Hover your mouse across the names of the products and tap dattt

With a completely clean base, I use Mac Prep & Prime natural radiance base in radiant yellow  to prep my face ..

Using my Real Techniques foundation brush – (I recommend buying the set, as i use all of them!) I then put on my favourite foundation Nars sheer Glow – Santa Fe 0607845060451

As for my eyes.. I love a smokey eye but dark smokey can be a bit heavy for day to day so I keep the smoke but lighten it up a bit with Mac mineralize eye shadow in harvests of greensmac_harvestofgreens001

Here’s one of my favourite products ever! – the Tom ford contouring shade and illuminate set gives you the cheekbones of a Kardashian. Literally the best contouring kit on the market. Creamy, easy to apply and lasts all day! Gives a very sharp look.450-3001058-SHADEILLUMINATE_INTENSITYONE_M

This may seem odd but I put my Mac select moisture colour concealer after I’ve done everything else on my face. It picks up loose eyeshadow and tidies everything up afterwards. The actual concealer itself is lightweight but has amazing coverage.mac-select-moisture-cover-concealer

Eyebrows on fleeeeek using Self propelling Mac brow pen in lingering (no sharpeners necessary!). Always a sharp tip and I use this product to extend my brows. Making your brows that little bit longer makes a huge difference flattering your face.773602023318

After using the brow pen I go over my brows with Benefit ‘gimme brow’ gel .. this product has CHANGED my life! Shoutout to Benefit for actually sending this to me and changing the game. The brow gel gives you that wet look and defines them to a T.. Benefit-Gimme-Brow

One of my favourite makeup brands of all time is Charlotte Tilbury. Uber classy. I’m always using the Charlotte Tilbury lip liner .. glides on your lips making the tricky job of applying lip liner that bit easier.455-3003231-LIPCHEAT_BADROMANCE_M

After I’ve applied my liner I then dab on Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick .. little bit glossier than normal nude lipsticks which makes your lips plumper.charlotte-tilbury-lipstick

And of course, I coat my lashes in Benefit ‘They’re Real!’ mascara .. I mean, who doesn’t these days?!benefit-theyre-real-mascara

Although I use the mac smokey shadows day to day.. I need to mention an eyeshadow I recently discovered. I wear it on stage as it’s very special but I will let you all in on the secret. Being a makeup snob, I never usually venture out of my brands but I was drawn to the makeup stand in Topshop when I saw this Rose Gold shadow in the distance. You NEED to purchase Topshop glow ‘shuffle the cards’ eye shadow .. it’s iridescent (a wide spread of glowing colours and changes in different lights). It is incredible and I would marry it off if it was a human.20E01FROS_normal

Hope you enjoyed this slightly different non-fashion-related post… If you liked this I might just upload a makeup tutorial ;).. keep posted.
