ootd // troublemaker feels

make me up // my everyday makeup look

smashbox photo finish primer

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer

This is one of my favourite steps, whether its a basic makeup look, or more detailed, as it truly helps even out my skin tone and gives a smooth service to go over with foundation/concealer. I particularly like this primer as it feels lightweight almost immediately after applying it!


maybelline better skin concealer

Maybelline Superstay Better Skin Concealer + Corrector (in Ivory)

I use a more full coverage concealer on my more “natural” days as it allows me to cover blemishes, redness and dark circles without putting it entirely ALL over. I have found this particular concealer to be wonderful for covering everything I mentioned and it lasts a fairly long while, unless im excessively sweating or get my face wet, and even then its usually just my blemishes that need a tiny touch up!


maybelline mineral powder

Maybelline Natural Perfecting Mineral Powder Foundation (in Classic Ivory)

I could not live without my powder! It evens me out, makes me look flawless and even brightens up my face! I have enjoyed this particular powder for a few years now and it lasts me a long time as I don’t use a ton of it on my face.  I retouch the powder slightly about one to two times a day depending on what I am up to.


tarte park avenue princess palette

Tarte Park Avenue Princess Contour Palette Vol. 2 (Blush)

This is something I only started doing in the last year because I always thought my cheeks were rosy enough. Turns out I was wrong and just adding a tiny touch of blush on my chipmunk cheeks gives a lovely flushed look, instead of just a plain pale face. I have been using my Tarte Pallete for this step and have enjoyed the results thus far.


benefit roller lash mascara

Benefit Roller Lash Super Curling + Lifting Mascara

I tend to go through different mascaras (usually sample ones) but lately have been absolutely loving the Roller Lash Mascara I got as a sample. It gives me wonderful length and separation to create a beautiful natural lash finish. It is not waterproof and smudges if I lay down, but otherwise it doesn’t flake at all and is wearable for long periods of time.


revlon colourburst matt balm

Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm Stick (in Elusive)

For my everyday lip I go for a matte balm in the colour Elusive. The colour is just so pretty! It is a nude like pink. I do have to reapply this whenever I eat, as it is not long wear, but I don’t mind!

So this is basically what I look like on most days when I leave the house. I enjoy the ability to just touch up your face slightly for a more polished look while still appearing very natural. Let me know what you think and if you’ve used these products before and how you got on with them!

fashion report // chokers are IN

This fall the trend of the 90’s choker is back and better than ever. There are SO many options for trying out this look, no matter your style. I personally think its an incredibly fun and playful way to up the look of a basic fall wardrobe.

I’ve taken it upon myself to list a few of my favourite choker styles of the moment that are available in plus size (because we all know some of us have thicker necks and still deserve to rock a hot trend!).

This stunning blush pink lace choker is available from Torrid.com. I just love how feminine it is!


This adorable felt heart choker is available from ASOS.com.  Who can say no to hearts? Not this girl!


This black necktie with chord ends is available from Boohoo.com. The versatility of this piece is amazing, let it hang loose, tie it in a bow, or wrap it up tight around your neck!


I have already purchased the heart choker, and in the process of getting the other two items because they “fit” the look im going for this season. But there are SO many more options available in more basic looks or edgier looks, especially on Boohoo & Asos, so I am sure you will be able to find just what you’re looking for!

Happy shopping & let me know what you think and what you’re favourte chokers of the season are in the comments section.
