Wicked Witch Makeup Tutorial

Hey guys, recently on my YouTube channel I did a witch makeup tutorial for Halloween that I though I should show you. I love Halloween and I think this is a pretty easy makeup look to do for a last minute look because you don't need any special makeup; you might already have everything you need in your makeup collection.

I really enjoyed creating this look and I just love the green contour, although it didn't show up that well in the video and pictures. If you would like to see how I achieved this look then watch my step by step tutorial below.

Alien Perfume Review | Thierry Mugler

Recently I got a present of the Thierry Mugler perfume Alien for my birthday. If you have been reading my blog for a while then you may know that I've wanted this perfume for about two years now so I was so happy to finally get it. I first found out about this perfume because my friend owned it and I loved the scent. I then got a free sample of it when I was buying some Christmas presents and I've wanted it ever since. 
Alien has quite a strong scent. When I got it as a present I realised that it was a bit stronger than I had remembered. The good news about this is that this means it lasts quite a long time and you don't need much of it to smell amazing. The main scents in this perfume are jasmine, white amber and cashmeran wood. I feel like this perfume has a sort of masculine hint to it, like it isn't the typical floral feminine scent; It has an edge to it. I think this perfume needs to be used a bit sparingly, maybe just one or two sprays at a time, otherwise it could change from a gorgeous scent to being quite overwhelming fairly quickly.

I've heard mixed opinions about its unique bottle. I personally really like it. The dark purple gives it a more luxurious feel and its exotic shape seems to reflect the name of the perfume. It really does look a bit like something you might find in outer space and reminds me of the Break Free music video by Ariana Grande. This is a 30ml bottle but I think I prefer the shape of the 60ml bottle which is a bit more of a square shape. The bottle that I received is also a refillable bottle so that I can easily buy refills for it for much cheaper than if I were to buy the entire thing again. If you are buying this perfume make sure to check if it is a refillable bottle or not because it can save you quite a bit of money if you are planning on repurchasing it every year or two.  

I guess the downside of this perfume is how expensive it is, hence the fact that I haven't gotten around to buying it in the two years that I've wanted it.  It's about €60-70 euros for the 30ml bottle and almost €100 for the 60ml. If you get the eau de toilette instead of the eau the parfum it is cheaper with the 30ml being €45 and the 60ml being around €70, and because this perfume is so strong I think that the eau de toilette would be actually quite nice. If you are interested in getting this perfume, you can get it in most perfume shops or drugstores or you can also buy it here on Amazon, although I would recommend that you smell it before you buy it. If you have ever tried this perfume before, let me know what you thought of it in the comments below. Also, let me know what is your favourite expensive perfume to splurge on? Talk to you soon.

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation Review

Hey guys, today I am reviewing the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation. I've been wearing this foundation for the last month or two and I sort of have mixed feelings about it. 
  My favourite thing about this foundation is that it makes my skin look really flawless and radiant looking, and I feel it has slightly better coverage than the average drugstore foundation. I usually apply two coats of this and my skin looks almost air brushed with it on. Sounds amazing.. doesn't it? Well of course there is a catch.. it can't possible be that amazing...

The problem with this foundation is that it doesn't seem to last the day. My skin becomes quite oily while I'm wearing it and it sort of melts off my face. This doesn't happen straight away..it's usually okay for an hour of two before it starts to fade, but it does get fairly shiny within the first hour if you don't apply powder over it. You might be thinking, "well, you must just have very oily skin and that is why it happens", but I've read a few reviews on this foundation and quite a few people state this problem. I don't even have oily skin, my T-zone just gets slightly oily throughout the day. This foundation seems to make my skin much oilier than it is with any other foundation. 

The good news is that if you apply a lot of powder over this foundation and re-touch it again later on in the day that your makeup will be fine, it just isn't one of those apply once, last for 24/12 hours types of foundation. The worst that happens if you powder and re-touch it is that you might look a little shiny at different parts of the day depending on how active you are being. This is definitely not a foundation to wear to the gym or a dance class, because it will probably just melt off you face if  you do.

AFTER APPLYING THE FOUNDATION
I still don't really know how I feel about this foundation. It makes my skin look so good that I think the pros outweigh the cons, just slightly. It's pretty ideal for me to wear in my videos because I don't need to worry about it lasting very long. I don't think I would mind buying it again but I also feel that there must be a better foundation out there that not only makes my skin look so good but also lasts a significant amount of time before it starts to look very shiny. 

What do you guys think? Do you not mind having to reapply or retouch foundation a few times throughout the day as long as it looks good or do you prefer one that will last as long as possible? Let me know in the comments below, and also let me know if you have tried this foundation before and what you though of it.
