Kira Kira box review!

Hey guys I recently got a subscription box from Japan called Kira Kira. This is a beauty box with all the products coming from Japan. I have always wanted to get a beauty box from Japan so I though it would be fun to review it. So here we go.

18601433_1552344058122643_1320291046_n

So this is the box that everything comes in. I though it was such a cute little box and I love the colours. The box was packed really well and nothing was damaged which is great.

The box comes with the little box that tells you what the products are and how to use them. I really love the design on this is so lovely.

So the first product is this really cute bath bomb.

The bath bomb is this bright yellow colour and smells slightly of honey. Inside is a little bear figure. I have always wanted a bath bomb with something inside and I think this is really cute.  The bath bomb had a really good fizz on it which is what you want. One thing I didn’t like was that it turned the water a kind of pee colour. However the little bear that popped out is really cute and has a little hole that you could hook him on and hang him somewhere. Overall I really liked this product but would have liked it do be a different colour.

Next product was this Soy milk and yogurt face mask.

This is one of those full face masks which I do really like putting on. I had never heard of a soy milk and yogurt one before so I was very interested in how it would feel. This mask had a lot of moisture in it. After leaving it on for 15 minutes my face felt really soft and clean. There is a lot of extra moisture left after you take the mask of so I just rubbed it in to my skin. I really love this mask and it smelled great too.

Next is this body soap. This smells AMAZING! It smells like flowers and leaves you skin smelling fresh for a while. I love this so much that I’m using it as my special body wash (sounds strange I know but its too nice to use everyday.)

Next is this sponge. This sponge is made which Konjac which is a plant product so its all natural. This sponge is so soft that anyone could us it even babies. As someone with sensitive skin I have to try and find as many products as I can that are natural and kind to by skin and this is one of them. I tend to use this when I want to wash of any of my face products like my exfoliator. It also has a little string on it so you can hang it up.

Next product is this BB cream. I haven’t used BB creams before so I don’t have much have anything to compare it to but I do like this product. I tend to use a full cover foundation so I won’t be using this as my foundation but I like to use it as faec lotion. It is also a cute little size so would easily fit in any bag.

The last product is this very different face mask. You are meant to add the two different packets in to a bowl of water and when it starts to bubble you stick your head in for 3-5 minutes. I haven’t tried this yet because I don’t have a bowl big enough to put my head in to. This is a very different type of face mask and I will be trying it as soon as I get a bowl that can fit my head.

I love this subscription box and I think the products are really fun. Its really fun to use products from a different county and try something new.

Bye guys!

May favourites!

Hey guys!

So in this post I’m going to go though I what I have been loving this month so lets jump right in to it.

The first thing I have been loving is this Rugrats bag. I got this bag from Primark for £6 wanting a place to but all the make up that I use for my inspired make up looks. It holds everything and still has looks of room. This bag is going to be great for when I travel home or go on holiday as it will hold my toiletries. Im so in love with this as its a flash from my childhood and I think its a great price.

 

Next is MUA’s Mega volume mascara. I like to try different make up products but Im very picky when it comes to mascara. I cant stand mascara that makes your eyelashes stick together. You just end up looking like Ezma from The emperor’s new groove. I need a mascara that makes the lash’s look long and full. This mascara dose just that I love it and its not going to brake the bank either at £3. However I did find this mascara cleaning out my make up draw so its not brand new but you might be able to find it on amazon or eBay.

18643482_1552341294789586_286598230_n

Next is got2b oil-licious styling oil. You can use this on wet or dry hair to make your hair feel glossy and soft. I use this on wet hair just after I have washed it. I add a few pumps to my hand, rub them together and stroke them though my hair. Because I have long thick hair I do have to do this two or three times to make sure I have covered all my hair. My hair feels incredible after using this. It so soft and lasts so long but if I need it I just top it up in the morning. I got this for £4.05.

18623018_1552341544789561_259310181_n

Up next is Dirty Works Pore-fect face scrub. I did review this in my Dirty Works review which you can check out here. I love this so much. My skin feels great and so clean after I use it. I feel so fresh it feels like my shin can breath. This cost me £5.

IMG_4003.jpg

Keeping with Dirty Works my next favourite is the Coconut body lotion which I also review here. This leaves my skin feeling soft and smelling amazing. This dose exactly what you want a body lotion to do. This cost me £4.

IMG_4007

Next is Miss Spa clear blemish patches. I have been having I really bad time with spots recently and I have been trying everything to help them and I saw these at work and decided to give it a go. They are little circle patches in three different sizes depending on how big the spot is. You pop them on and then go to sleep and in the morning you spot has either gone or gone down in size. They work so well and they only cost £2.99.

18624692_1552341204789595_971862786_n

The last thing is this lovely bag. I actually got this free as a promotion at superdrug. If you brought two Garnier face products you got this bag for free and I love it. It a great size that can fit a lot of stuff in and has a lovely message on it. I have been using this everyday for work and it looks so cute.

18624850_1552341084789607_1198098932_n.jpg

Princess Kida/ Festival make up look

Hey everyone!

I really enjoyed doing my last inspired make up look so I decided to do another one but with a spin on it. So todays inspiration comes from Princess Kida from Disney’s Atlantis the lost empire. She is a very strong princess and I think she would be fun to do.Kida.jpgBut I also wanted to do a fun spin on it so I decided to a festival themed spin just so I could play with glitter.

(Just a side note Im not professional I’m just doing it for fun so it could maybe inspire someone.)

So to start of if you want to have a full cover look check out my this post here to see how I do my full face cover.

I have taken the colour inspiration from here outfit and hair. I will also be doing something fun with her tribal face make up. So to do my eyes Im starting off with this really bright blue called Wkd in the Revolution salvation palette. I took my Real Techniques base shadow brush and covering it all over my eyelid.

18555092_1546970245326691_724623914_n

I love the way the blue looks it gives of a tribal feel to it which is great for the character that has inspired this look. Next I took this sliver colour called Gleam from the same palette.

18516173_1546969288660120_1410691264_n

 

I took my ecotools angled eyeliner brush and started on the bottom on my eye below the lash line. I then I did the top line keeping it as close to the lash line and connected them in the conner.

18515942_1546969968660052_605622142_n

Next comes the fun glitter part. Kida has this great make up under her eye so I thought I would add this to the look. But this is where the festival part comes in.   203010_1236982021042_full

I am using this face glue and blue glitter to make this happen. I got the face glue and glitter in a pack from Primark which also comes which pink and white glitter too and it only cost £3.

To make the pattens I took the face glue applicator and tried to great the same of her make up. Once I did one shape i added the glitter with my finger added more where I needed it. This is all really good products it all sticks which is what you want when your out partying or at a festival.

so this is my finished look. I know its a very out there look but its not for just going to the shops. I think it makes a really interesting festive look and inspired by a great princess.

I know this is a short one but I wanted to show this quick look off.

See you next time.

Ariel inspired make up!

Hey guys! So today I decided to do something fun. I have done an make up look inspired my one of my favourite Disney princess’s Ariel.

ff5faace425927714b5746901f1f6b62.jpg

Before we get started I’m doing this for fun. Im not a professional I didn’t plan this out I just experimenting with it some things may not work but I’m just trying it out for fun.

So to start off I put on my Garnier’s pure active blemishes & shine daily mattifying moisturiser. I use this to help control the amount of spots I get and to help not make my face shinny. I got this for £6.99 at Superdrug.

18450002_1541798382510544_1587810613_n

These next couple of steps is doing the base of the face. I have gone thought this in my other make up post so Im not going in to to much detail but if you want to see in detail what I do check out this post here. Some of the products may be different so I will list what I’m using now.

To start of I will be putting on my primer all over my face. Im using MUA’s pro base moisturising primer. It got this for £4 from Superdrug.

IMG_3778

Then I used MUA’s pro base eye primer to cover my eyes. I got this for £2.50 from Superdrug.

IMG_3687

Then took my real techniques expect face brush and using’s Rimmel’s lasting finish foundation in 100 ivory to cover my face and neck to give me a full cover look. I got the foundation from superdrug for £7.99 and the brush from amazon for £7.95.

 

Next comes the fun bit. Im going to be doing my eyes to really reflect the colours Ariel wears. To start of I’m going to use MUA’s silent disco eyeshadow palette ( which i got from Superdrug for £4).There are three green colours in this palette but I decided to use the darker green which is called Wild.

18450120_1541798272510555_292764128_n

I took my real techniques base shadow brush (which Josh got me as part of Real techniques deluxe set collectors edition from amazon for £18.95) and put the Wild colour all over my eyelid. I wanted to add this green to go with Ariels tail. When I first put the colour on it was a little lighter then I wanted it to be so I just went make and put another coat on and it was the shade that I wanted.

Next I wanted to add some purple in for the colour of Ariel’s clam bra. So I took Revolution’s Salvation palette (which I got from Superdrug for £4) and I took the darker purple colour called Me Three.

18424783_1541798175843898_2142049068_n

I then took Ecotools angled eyeliner brush. ( They don’t sell the set I got but you can get the same brush in a different set for £14.99 from superdrug) Once I got the colour on the brush I did a line of purple under the eye with a little flick at the conner.

I only did a thin purple line but you can do it as thick as you like. Have fun with it!

I wanted to add something to the eyes to try and reflect Ariels scales. So I took Collection’s Glam Caystals in the colour Spandex (which I got from superdrug for £2.99) This is a gel glitter eyeliner which I though this would reflect the scales great. I just added a small line of the glitter to my top lid.

Next Im moving on to my eyebrows. I wanted to do something I had never done before and colour my eyebrow. I decided to colour them red to match Ariel’s hair. So I took the same MUA palette as before and the ecotool brush I used for the purple and I brushed it in the red colour called Freak out. I then started to fill in my eyebrows with this colour. I had to fill them in a couple times as my eyebrows are very dark.

(I don’t know if the colour works as I do have very dark eyebrows so if I was doing this again I would try and lighten them a bit first before adding the colour.)

To finish of the eyes I added Clinique’s high impact mascara ( I got this one free with a magazine but I’m sure you can find it easy online.)

18424759_1541793145844401_2030894526_n

The next thing I did was add some highlight to add to the mermaid feel. I used Revolution ultra chroming due stick (which I got from superdrug for £5) I used the lighter colour to add a bit of shimmer to my cheek bones. Once I added the colour I rubbed it to great a shimmer. 18425606_1541792239177825_97505431_n

The last step is to add some colour to the lips. I wanted to add a bright red for Ariels hair. I used MUA’s luxe in flare (I don’t think they sell this anymore) This added the bright red to the lips. (this comes off very easy so if you want something to last go with something else.)

18426051_1541792162511166_936453127_n

And there we go a make up look inspired my Ariel.

My new tattoo and tattoo tips!

Hey guys today I got new tattoo. I got this tattoo for my puppy Bailey who recently passed away. 

This is Bailey’s paw. We put ink on his paw and printed it 2 days before he died. I love the way it has turned out! It looks just like the print we took. It means so much to me that he has left his paw is on me now. 

Getting the tattoo has inspired me to share some of my tips and expressive for people looking to get a tattoo. So I hope this is helpful.

Think hard about what you want.

This may seem silly to say but a lot of people don’t do this and end up regretting what they have and have to go though more pain getting it covered up or removed. My best tip for this is make sure it is something special to you. It doesn’t have to be something really sentimental like the paw I have four tattoos that mean something to be. I have a Disney and Harry potter tattoo as they both mean a lot to me and song lyrics. Just think before you ink.

10250260_892299214127134_3654690238801943937_n.jpg

Think about where you will get it.

There are a couple of reasons for this. Not only where it will look the best but think about the pain. Tattoos are painful to get but depending on when you get them they can be a lot worse. If your not good with pain don’t get one on bone (e.g ribs, hips, foot) this will be so much more painful then the rest of your body. My third tattoo was on my hip and that was really painful it nearly brought me to tears.

10428056_892299197460469_4672622514967636173_n

The easiest ones I have had are the ones on my wrists. I don’t know why but I find them the nicest to have done. Another thing you have to think of for placement is your job. Depending on your job you may have to hide your tattoos so maybe get it somewhere your cloths will hide.

10441126_823959927627730_3381539750245937544_n

Find a good tattooist. DO YOUR RESEARCH!!!

Do research on different tattooists. Find reviews, look at photos of there pervious works and if you can ask someone who have had one done there. Also keep your design in minded. For example if you want a realistic tattoo find an artist who specialise in that the last thing you want is a tattoo of a loved one looking like it should be in a horror movie. Make sure you find someone right for you.

Eat and drink on the day off.

On the day you are getting tattooed make sure you eat and drink but do not drink alcohol or energy drinks. When getting a tattoo your body will pump adrenaline drinking energy drinks will make your heart beat faster and you don’t need that with adrenaline.

Don’t worry if you bleed.

You are putting a needle in the skin. The body will try and fight off anything that is not meant to be there so the blood will try a push it out and clean its self. Think of it like a cut. Don’t worry if it happens it is normal.

Breath!!

It can be scary getting a tattoo but you need to breath. Moving around and panicking will make it so much harder for the tattooist to do there job. This may result in the tattoo not being the best, it taking more time and costing more money. It is in your best interest to stay calm.

These are my top tips for the run up to your tattoo. If you like this let me know and I can do an after care tips post.
