basic make-up tips and tricks:

hey guys, I have been trying to catch more people's attention by posting more s here is another..
In this post I am going to be using images from the E.L.F. (Eyes Lips Face) website as their images are simple and easy to understand. I would highly recommend E.L.F. as their prices and quality is amazing! I regularly buy from here, if you are on a budget then this is the place to buy all your makeup essentials!
E.L.F. Website:

you don't have to use a moisturiser and a primer when applying your makeup! using primer as a base is a brilliant tip as is secures your makeup and gives it a longer lasting finish, if you use primer you don't have to double it up with moisturiser, primer alone gives the same effect. 
Mineral Infused Face Primer

Brow pencils:
pick a brow pencil that is the same shade as the colour of hair on your brows. I cringe at times when I see girls in the high street who have jet black eye brows when you can tell they are painted on thick and are un-natural, your not trying to make them a completely different colour the main aim is to shape your brows into a more defined and even shape.
Eyebrow Lifter & Filler
Eyeliner Tip: 
If it is cold and you feel your eye liner is lighter than it should be and it doesn't seem to apply properly, then warm up the liner by twirling the point on the back of your hand.

Eye Lash Curlers:
I think that these are essential to any girl, whether you have really long lashes or short lashes, they are good for making your lashes have a bit more 'oomph', most of if not all day.
Mechanical Eyelash Curler
Brilliant for dark circles and around the eye area, it brightens your eyes and makes them stand out naturally. It can be used to cover up any imperfections and blemishes instantly, make sure you blend the concealer as it can look blotchy if applied wrong. Set it with powder or foundation and your ready to go!
Lip Stick:
If you have dark eye makeup on then I would recommend to use a nude shade lipstick as it tones down a look but it draws attention to your eyes.

If your eye makeup is light and not too dark then if you like you can try a deep toned lipstick maybe a red or dark pink, I would not recommend really dark tones as it can make your face look washed out.

Colours such as deep purples and very dark browns can be paired with smoky eye looks for a dramatic and bold look.

A quick magazine featured favourites: These are the 2 LOOK magazines I have picked up this month, the one with Rihanna on the front cover is the most up to date.  

The magazine with Cheryl on the cover, I found very inspiring as it has a 3 page article, which interviews 3 different bloggers. It gives new bloggers (like myself) an inspiring insight to what blog life can be like. The 3 girls who were included will be linked below. Leave me a comment telling me your favourite article?

In the most recent LOOK magazine (Rihanna) I think the colourful and bright looks featured are going to be very popular this spring! I am still in the process of reading this magazine so I am now off to read the rest with a hot cup of tea(: 
Thanks for reading!

Lana Del Rey A.K.A (Lizzie Grant), the 'Video Games' star is this months cover girl and has an 8 page feature in Vogue magazine, from the pictures taken by Mario Testino we can see in more depth what her fashion and style consists of, her pastel colours mixed with many objects of deep red tones shows she is not afraid to splash out on colour and I feel she has pulled it off very successfully. Lana has been shown as a new role model to many young girls (myself included) as she is not only an astounding singer, she is a beautiful young lady and we the fans and the press can see she has a wonderful style, a style she likes to call 'Gangster Nancy Sinatra'. 
The singer has raised up higher and higher with each new song and has now reached a great milestone in her career we cant wait to see more! There is even reports that in early January of this year she signed a deal with 'NEXT' modelling agency. 
In her 'Born To Die' album (released on the 27th January 2012), we can hear how much talent she really has. She has a very mysterious personality and a voice that is gentle to ones ears, as she sings about forlorn memories of broken hearts, we cant help but see a strong side to Lana which inspires young girls to keep a strong head and carry on at the darkest of times. She is a new inspiration to singers, stylists and young folk alike!
