Mac Products: Reviewed

Hello! I'm so sorry that I haven't posted on SOOOO long :( well I'm here now!

So recently I've been finding it really hard to decent foundation for my skin that stays on all day (and doesn't shine) and has full coverage. I decided that maybe I should try out a higher end product so I went to mac and bought the 'Studio Fix fluid' but also the 'Pro Longwear concealer' and the 'prep and prime illuminating base' as I have always heard such good reviews of these products. The sales assistants were so helpful finding me the right shade and it matches perfectly. 

Absolutely adore all of these products and they're really worth the extra money, I may have finally found a foundation that suits my skin! The only annoying thing is that the foundation doesn't come with a pump and I didn't realise that so I had to go back out to buy one!

I'll hopefully be doing more reviews and also some outfit posts!

Everyday summer makeup

Hello everyone! So it's finally the summer holidays! Yay! This means that I now have a lot more time to post! So today I'm going to be talking about my everyday summer makeup.

1. I firstly use rimmel BB. This is perfect for the summer because I contains SPF 25 to protect you from the sun instead of using suncream on your face which is really greasy! This BB cream is so good because it is 9 in 1, I explained a bit more about this in my may favourites. 

2. Secondly I use the collection lasting perfection concealer in the shade light 2. I use this under my eyes to cover my dark circles and then on any blemishes. I use just a small brush to blend this in. 

3. I then powder my face with rimmel's stay matte powder using my real techniques powder brush. 

4. I will then use my MUA undress me too pallette for my eyes. I don't have certain shades that I use, it depends on how I'm feeling!

5. Then I use my maybelline falsies mascara and then my benefit they're real which are both very good for adding volume and length to my lashes. 

6. Finally I just use my strawberry balmi on my lips to protect them in the sun 

Thank you for reading and please comment below any suggestions for more posts I should do in the summer

May favourites

So it's June tomorrow which means SUMMER! (Even though it hasn't really been feeling like it!) So I've decided to do my may favourites on what I have been loving this month. I'm still quite new to this so I'll give it a go!

1. My first favourite has been my Rimmel London BB cream. It says that it has '9 in 1 results: primes, conceals, moisturises, minimises pores, conceals, covers, smoothes, mattifies, brightens and helps protect'. I agree with all of this as it has delivered everything that I need in an everyday foundation/ primer with just one step. BB creams are so useful as they don't take much time at all but they are still very effective. This product has great coverage, much like a foundation. Oh yeah and it was £6.99 from superdrug. 

2. My next favourite this month has been my real techniques brushes. These are the best thing ever! Literally! They are such good quality and such a pleasure to use. They are so soft as well! Thank you Samantha Chapman! The individual brushes are around ten pounds from Superdrug and Boots, superdrug is a bit cheaper! And the core set is around twenty pounds which is amazing too. 

3. My next favourite is American Apparel. I love it sooooo much. My dad recently went to New York and brought me back a few things including my skirt. I already have a few accessories. I will definitely be purchasing more from there before I go on holiday! I'm saving up you see! 

4. My next favourite has been Gabrielle Aplin's debut album English Rain. Please don't get me started omg it is P.E.R.F.E.C.T. I have been listening to it non stop since it was released. I have been a fan of Gabrielle's for some time and she is just so talented. All of her songs are beautiful and this is one of the only albums which I like every single song! I find that there's always one song which I don't like as much but I love all of them! My favourite is definitely home which I think she is bringing out as a single! Yay! So yeah, if you haven't listened to it already you should definitely check it out! 

5. So my final favourite is The Great Gatsby. WOW, ok so I saw the film the other day and it was so good. I think that Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of such a classic books is phenomenal! The cast is amazing and Leodardo's portrayal of Gatsby is spot on in my eyes. I love Leo a lot ok. The whole thing was so well done and I really want to see it again before it comes out on DVD, and then I'll be able to get it!!! Also the soundtrack was amazing, I love it so much and I have been listening to it on repeat all week! Young and Beautiful by Lana Del Ray is amazing. So the day after I saw the film I decided to go out and get the book and start to read it. Well I've nearly finished it so to say that I don't like it is an understatement. I don't really know why but I love the story so much. It's also so interesting to compare the film with the original text as well. 

So that was my May favourites. I hope that you have enjoyed reading it and please let me know if you have any suggestions on anything that you would like me to post about. Bye for now and I hope that you have had a very good May :) -Martha xox

Pastel nails for spring

One of the best trends for spring is pastel nails. They're so pretty and cute and they go with everything. I always have to wear polish on my nails, I feel naked without it so I tend to go for lighter less noticeable colours so that I can get away with it at school. 
My two combination at the moment is Essie's Fiji and MUA pistachio ice cream. They go so well together and I just love them. 

Fiji was £7.99 from boots but if you're lucky enough you can get Essie at a huge discount for £1.99 at MUA are a much cheaper alternative to essie at only £1 in superdrug. Some of the colours are very similar to Essie and so is the packaging so if you have a superdrug near you, you should definitely check out the MUA counter for some very reasonable makeup items. 
Thanks for reading and I hope that you have a great weekend :)

Just a quick introduction

Ok, hello, so I've always wanted to make a blog but I've never really know where to start so here it goes. I'm not really sure what and when I'm going to posting but I hope that my posts will interest you a little bit. I just thought that it would be nice that I could have somewhere where I could express myself and what I'm loving and to be myself :)
So my name is Martha, I'm fifteen and I live in England. I'm interested in many things but mainly photography, fashion and makeup (like most girls aha) 
So yeah, this is my introduction
