Beauty New Years Resolution Tag 2014

Posted by Olivia Jayne at 00:00 0 comments
I did this tag last year and I decided it would be fun to do it again and look back at last years answers as well. 

1. What is a technique that you've improved on during the last year?
This is probably making more of an effort on an everyday basis. I try to venture out a bit more with my makeup when I can when I'm not at school. Generally, I've just been experimenting slightly more than usual.

2. What is your overall most used makeup product this year?
This ones fairly difficult because I tend to mix up my makeup when I find a new favourite but ones that I have been using since I got them over and over are Collection's Lasting Perfection Concealer, Maybelline's Pure BB Cream and MAC's Ladyblush cream blush.

3. What brand would you like to try in the upcoming year?
This year I have tried more high-end makeup which is something I mentioned wanting to do in my last years tag but I would love to try something from brands at Sephora.

4. Are there any products that you'd like to use up this year?
I still am not sure whether this means something I hate and want gone or love and want to continue using but I'll take it as one that I would like to continue using and thats MAC's Pro-Longwear Concealer, I've only just got it but I love it and want to continue using it.

5. Favourite Winter Outfit and Makeup?
I always love wearing leggings, boots and jumpers in winter.

6. What is one bad makeup habit that you want to break in the new year?
Last year i said cleaning my brushes more which I am proud to say I have achieved! This year, I'm not really sure what I'd like to break.

7. Favourite Clothing to keep warm in the winter?
I love jumpers.

8. A fellow blogger you've been loving this year?
At the end of each month I have started doing a favourite blogs post so I explain my favourites in those.

9. What activity are you going to start next year?
Last year I said exercise which I haven't done so I'll say it again this year but its wishful thinking as its probably not going to happen.

10. Describe the year 2014 in 3 words
Friendship, different and fun! 

I hope you enjoyed this post and maybe try it out yourself, I have commented on a few people's blogs tagging them but you can all do it too!

New Years Eve Makeup Look

Posted by Olivia Jayne at 00:00 0 comments
This look is quite dramatic because I wanted to try it out for New Years Eve. 

Firstly I took Benefits The Porefessional all over my face to smooth my pores. 

Then I took a medium coverage foundation and applied in generously using Real Techniques Buffing Brush to buff it into my skin. 

As a primer/base for my eyes, I used Maybellines Colour Tattoo in Tough as Taupe. On the photo it looks gold but it's more of a grey taupe colour hence the name. 

Then I took MACs Satin Taupe all over my lid and MACs Nocturnelle in the outer-V.

I then used the left hand side crease colour on top to really accentuate the purple. I also took the right hand side crease colour in the crease and outer-V. I blended everything out with a clean brush. 

Now I took a GOSH silver pigment on the inner part of my eyelid and a purple/blue one in the centre of my lid. I also used MACs Reflects Blue pigment in my inner corner. 

I concealed next to clean up the pigments fall out. I used Maybellines age rewind under my eyes and to highlight. I also took MACs Pro-long wear concealer on blemishes. 

Now I lined the outer part of my lid with Stilas waterproof stay all day liner. If you suit winged liner then that would look nice but I don't so I stuck with normal. I then used a black eyeliner from Rimmel to tight line. 

I used Rimmels nude eyeliner on my waterline and mixed Urban Decays 24/7 liner in Lust and a black eyeliner from Rimmel under my eye. I smudged it out too. 

Now I curled my lashes and applied a generous coat of Benefits They're Real mascara. 

I tidied up my brows with Soap and Glorys Brow Archery. 

I didn't want to use any bronzer so I used Nars orgasm blush on the apples of my cheeks and MACs Shell highlight on my Cupid's bow and cheekbones. 

This look would look lovely with a nude lip but I wanted to go bright so I have two options. I have a lipstick from Bite:

Or Maybellines Hot Plum:

This is the finished eye look.

What I Got For Christmas from My Best Friends 2014

Posted by Olivia Jayne at 09:21 4 comments
I hope you had a good Christmas! Obviously in this post I'm not trying to brag about my lovely gifts in any way, this is just an interesting post to write and to read hopefully.

Firstly from my best friends I got lovely gifts. I got a £10 MAC voucher, Urban Outfitters bracelet and a Barry M Christmas nail polish.

From my other friend I got a Memory box which I have wanted for a while and inside it was filled with lots of little bits. It had a pack of earrings, a necklace, some rings, a Pink body spray, Sleek Natural eyeshadow palette and a Barry M Gelly Poilsh. 

I definitely got spoilt by my friends this year! I got one of them a pandora bracelet with a good luck charm on it and the other a perfume and the other present I can't mention because she hasn't opened it yet!
