As a student, comfort is key - but I still want to look chic! By tieing a knot in an over-sized t-shirt instantly adds something different to the look. I love nudes, so pairing this pale pink over-sized Missguided top, works perfectly with a long brown coat. Teamed up with a pair of smart joggers and some trainers it is the perfect everyday casual look.

Lets start with my first impressions. If any of you follow my Instagram (bleachedbeautyy) you will all know that warm tones are my absolute FAVOURITE shades to use. When I opened this palette, apart from the delicious smell of chocolate, the first thing I noticed was how me this palette is - and especially packed with warm tone nudes.

The pros of this palette. From the first time I used this palette I was in love! The eye shadows are honestly the creamiest eye shadows I have ever tried. They blend so smoothly and seamlessly - they are perfect for transition shades and dramatic shades. I also found the colour selection was amazing, it is so easy to wear both day and night, probably one of the main reasons why I love it. This palette is honestly stunning and will definitely be taking it with me next time I travel!

The cons of this palette.  Honestly I really can't think of one. The swatches really do not do this palette justice - if you are around a Too Faced counter any time soon, I urge you not only to smell the shadows but to actually swatch them. The only thing I would say, there was a tiny bit of fallout with some of the darker colours, but to me that's not really an issue as when I do a smokey eye, I usually do my foundation after. Also, more of a tip - I used MAC Fix+ with the colour 'pink sugar' and it didn't react well, so probably best to use it dry to preserve the shadow.

My final thoughts are - in my opinion - this palette is a MUST HAVE, if you are looking for one good eyes shadow palette that you can wear day or night and want a different look every time, this is it. It is the warmest, creamiest, most long wearing pre-made palette I have probably ever used and I honestly have no complaints.

Band tee's are so easy to dress up, especially for every day casual looks! Paired with a good pair of skinny jeans and some trainers and you're good to go. I especially love this Missguided biker jacket - I really think that pop of colour really adds to the look, making it effortlessly chic.
I have also been lusting after Adidas Yeezy Boosts, however have never been able to get my hands on them. These Miss Pap dupes are perfect and I really love how they look with this outfit.

I'm a bit late on the band wagon with this but recently got my hands on the Anastasia Beverly Hills cream contour palette in fair.
With that in mind I thought I'd give my opinion on this product and let you all know if I think its worth the hype.
So with that being said,

Lets begin....

*Swatch of the 3 contour colours: Fawn, Shadow & Mink

*Swatch of the 3 highlighting colours: Soft light, Lustre & Fair.

Lets start with my first impressions. Lets face it, this palette is beautiful. But for Anastasia Beverly Hills and at the price point of £39.99, I didn't expect anything less. At first glance I also loved how cool the contour colours were, especially for my pale skin and comparing it to their 'Light' contour palette.

The pros of this palette. My first time I used it I loved how cool the contours were, as I've said. The cooler tones, on my skin look a lot more natural, especially for everyday cream contouring. I also really liked the texture of these on swatch, they are really creamy and the lighter shades are really easily blended. Another this I liked about this palette is that it includes a shimmer colour in the highlights. I thought this was a really nice touch and looks lovely as a cream base for any powder highlight.

The cons of this palette. Honestly, in my opinion, I was really under enthused by this palette. I think maybe because I had heard such good reviews and had been waiting so long to try it that I had such high hopes. Personally, the contour colours are not as blendable as the highlighting colours and can come off as 'muddy' looking on the face if not properly blended. I did say in the pros that I liked the cooler tones and that it looked natural - which it does - but the blending process to make it look natural takes FOREVER!!! I also found that the highlighting shades creased and lay heavy under my eyes. I was so disappointed as it is such a luxury product and I love Anastasia Beverly Hills and brand. I mean who knows, maybe a different colour palette might suit me better and I got the wrong shades??

Overall, it is a lovely palette in the sense the colour selection is good and is versatile. However, for the price point I was very underwhelmed with it and probably wouldn't spend that much on a cream contour palette and just get different colour foundation sticks. Saying that, I will probably wear this now and again especially on a night out.

Hi ladies!

So I have teamed up with the sexy lingerie company Adore Me in coming up with my favourite looks for the winter. Personally winter trends are my favourite whether it a bold lip or a full coverage foundation, winter makeup is so glam.
I posted this look on Christmas day on my Instagram (bleachedbeautyy), but I explained how cranberry colours are one of my personal favourites for winter. Paired with a pinky-nude lip, it is so versatile for day and night. For all details of this look, make sure you head over to my Instagram.

From looking on the Adore Me website, with this makeup look I was especially inspired by the Roseanne set, as it matches perfectly with this look. In my opinion, winter clothes can be big and bulky, make yourself feel better with a pop of colour underneath! Underwear can definitely set the mood for the day ahead, and also with Valentines Day just around the corner it's a perfect excuse to feel beautiful.
