Sorry had to include that gif in… That was back in my youth so its kind of fitting for todays post. I thought I’d have a look back at the things that remind me of my youth…
These shoes were what were in fashion, I had all three at some point in the late 90’s and the early noughties.
I also owned a pair of pink flared cords quite similar to these Kate Spade ones. I definitely stood out like a sore thumb.
I enjoyed going to gymnastics, so once you mastered the bench turned upside down you were allowed on the balance beam 🙈
My make up bag had these two in and I’m pretty sure I was patchy, and orange and the blemishes were not concealed. But hey we learn by our mistakes
Finally these two mags. What sex education we weren’t getting in school we sure were getting them in here. I believe most of us 16 year old girls would flick through the pages of more to see what sex position of the fortnight was. Ha ha.
Feel free to share something that reminds you of your school days as a teenager.
We all want lovely clear skin… Including me.

Til next time
Well I bought some bits on ASOS the other week only to be disappointed and sent it all back…can’t help having a chunky butt 😂
So with that money I bought some new goodies and here is what arrived for me today.
TWO FACE MASKS
Both soothing in this weather and I thought I could go between the two. I’ve tried the other Garnier clay masks and most peel off 7th heaven ones so I know these will be fab.
A COLOURFUL PALETTE OF 76 EYESHADOWS
If you didn’t know already, I am absolutely shite at doing any eyeshadow apart from a plain lid so I thought that this would be a start and it was under a tenner so if I can’t follow the YouTube tutorials it won’t be a waste of money.
I thought I may as well get some brushes to work with and these were about 7 pounds. I would definitely spend on more expensive ones if I was any good. I was so excited there was a foundation / spooly / eyeliner one too.
ROSE QUARTZ FACIAL ROLLER
I have seen these all over Instagram and YouTube and I finally caved in and got myself one. It is supposed to help the puffiness in your face and help around your eyes too. Let’s hope it gives me a forever young face.
MAYBELLINE ERASER CONCEALER
For those dark circles and the annoying spots I still get at 33 i picked this one. I have high hopes for it. As in the name it says erase. Impurities be gone.
There you have it, I will keep you in the loop on what I think of them as I need to try put some more beauty posts on here.
Thanks for stopping by

Don’t you hate it when you wake up and you have dark circles through lack of sleep or that unwanted spot that just lands on your face. I know there are worst things in life, but it’ll make you feel so much more confident if you can conceal them.
So I’ve come up with 4 concealers that are very much raved about and I also have some tips to help
COLLECTION LASTING PERFECTION CONCEALER
At £4.19 this is the cheapest one I’m going to mention. You can find it at Boots and Superdrug It really does help conceal the dark circles and definitely helped cover redness but not my spots. Not to say it won’t help yours. It comes in a range of shades too.
REVOLUTION CONCEAL AND DEFINE CONCEALER
This one is a dupe for another one I’m going to mention that’s a bit pricey, this one is a fraction of the price at £5 from either Superdrug or Beauty Bay. It gives a full coverage which I like. You can get these in two different sizes as well if you tend to use a lot of concealer.
L’ORÉAL INFAILLABLE MORE THAN CONCEALER
This one is new out and I’ve been using it for about a month and I don’t have any intention of switching back. It has concealed my dark circles, my troublesome spots and any redness I get. It is £9.99 but I’d rather spend a tiny bit more to get a good result and fingers crossed it’ll last a few months.
TARTE SHAPE TAPE
At a steep £23. 00 the Tarte Shape Tape concealer does all the revolution concealer does but with a brand which all products come with a hefty price tag. I believe you can only get Tarte from America so people are selling them for £31.00 on Ebay. You’re silly if you wanna spend that and you don’t even know if it’s a knock off.
Those colour correction sets that come with all those different colours in them have uses for different skin complaints so I’ve found this down below that explains which colour helps what.
Also here is the places to apply your concealer to get the best results.
I also put a stripe down my nose only because I find if I don’t my foundation rubs off.
I hope you found this post informative and let me know if you have tried any others I haven’t named and you think they are worth a try.
You know the make up that you wear pretty much every day, the one that feels like your second skin? The ones you buy again and again. Those that if they were to be discontinued you’d have a mini meltdown.
That’s your signature beauty products
I thought I’d empty out my make up bag and tell you about mine.
I have been using Max Factor Facefinity it’s a 3 in 1 primer, concealer and foundation all in one – light ivory to be exact cos I’m a pale peach.
Not found one yet that’s done better (yes I know Tarte do one but not in my price range) than my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. My dark circles and spots are invisible underneath this.
I go between two. One which is the Maybelline Lash Sensational waterproof. I use these on days I know we will have rain and I may be hormonal. The other one is my Givenchy Mini Noir Couture Volume I had from the glamour beauty club. It gives wow volume I love it.
For a few years now this has been in my life and it stands pretty much whatever you throw at it. My Mac Pro Longwear Fluidline Gel Liner. It’s a little more pricier than one you buy from one of the brands in Boots or Superdrug but it lasts forever.
It took me forever to try find a lipstick shade that suited me and that stayed on my lips after eating/drinking and even kissing if I’m lucky. It’s only a couple of quid and it’s a Primarni special. It’s in between a brown, pink and a neutral. One I highly recommend buying.
I have to say over the years that Natural Collection was going in Boots nothing came close to giving my face a light bronzing than the pearls. One swirl of your brush in it and it was just enough to do your whole face without looking super caked. Sad that they have discontinued the brand but I thought ahead and got a couple. Benefits Hula bronzer is ok for contouring but I rarely do that cos I don’t have the nack of doing it.
There you have it…My faves.
What would be yours?
Thanks for reading, I’ll be back tomorrow.
I’ve used the title of this blog for a few reasons.
One – It’s the lyrics that start off my favourite song. Everything i do by Bryan Adams.
Two – I have two tone eyes. It’s only developed over the last few years. It’s what makes me different.
Three – I’ve done a little simple eye look i wanted to show you.
I used my freebie from the glamour beauty club the Givenchy mini noir couture volume mascara and then my Mac fluidline gel liner.
It separates all the lashes and adds the prefect amount of volume as you can see.
I have always worn black liner on my fluidline. I guess it’s my signature look.
Then i used the Maybelline eye studio diamond glow eyeshadow quad. I picked the pinky lilac shade (Second one in).
I’m not that adventurous with eyeshadow always keep it quite simple. This was £1.99 from fragrance direct so it was an absolute bargain.
I may one day put some YouTube tutorials on and follow them and maybe surprise myself.
