Playing with colours!

Published November 29, 2015 by sarahsmith1988

Hiya all,

To some of you, you already know I have been away for quite some time due to maternity leave so to speak. I have been recovering from birth whilst also managing a newborn. Although I love my little bundle of joy there is one thing for sure I don’t miss and that is the sleep deprivation, the endless washing up and the new found scent of baby puke! But I ask myself would I change this? The answer is hell no! I secretly adore the late night feeds, the endless washing up and smelling of baby puke? Hmm Maybe not so much that side of things.

Another point I have to make is these days looking glamourous and makeup perfected to look like a supermodel are long gone, ok slight exaggeration there, as there will come a time when I can get back to spending hours in the bathroom.  So when and where I can I try my best to look my best.

Which brings me onto my makeup for the day.


I decided to add some colours, my mood in the morning was actually rather a good one. When I am in a good mood I love to add colours (A recent thing for me, as I was never the daring type and stuck to neutrals, but since i found experimenting with different styles rather enjoyable I stepped well out of my comfort zone, that’s what life is all about right? Stepping out of that zone) So here is what I did:

I first applied my foundation, starting off with a primer, then mixing together my favorite foundation and then my lightening serum. Once applied and blended well I then started with the eyes!

Step 1:

Applying the eye primer, so the shadow sits nicely on top and appears more bolder and vibrant I took a copper shade and applied it on the lids, blending out a little.


Step 2:

Taking a purple shade I then applied this on the crease of the lid and blending it upwards to about half way.

Step 3:

Taking a green eyeshadow, (or eye pencil) I then applied the shadow along the lower lashline. (I did dampen the brush so the colour applied more bolder.

Step 4:

Taking an eye pencil I then applied lined the upper lash line with a bold line adding a flick. Finally finishing off with some barry m dazzle dust no.27 to create a shimmer just below the brow bone, finally taking a white pencil I drew I line on the water line.

To complete whole face I applied my favorite mascara and blush before applying pink lip liner and lipstick!



my top 6 Picks from Younique…

Published September 16, 2015 by sarahsmith1988

my mission to to spread the news about younique products. I absolutely adore younique products, which lead me to join younique and share with others just how amazing these cosmetics are! So the question I get asked often is “Why did you join younique?” Well I am 27 years old, married and have 2 children aged 4 and 2, and expecting my third child in October, with only 5 weeks left I am a little more then excited to meet another addition to my family. I purchased younique products and feel in love with them instantly. I never really had the interest to join as a representative as I was never really that busy. I didnt have a family to provide for, I attended college and did a few jobs here and there. It wasn’t till recently I found myself tied up in the children, the pregnancy and IMAG0329running a busy household, but I didn’t like the idea of not making an income. I pondered about for a few weeks to try devise a plan that would be suitable around my lifestyle and children. I just happened to come across a social media post looking for reps, so I jumped at the opportunity and got myself signed up. I now sell the products to friends/family and across the globe!! With fantastic commission and rewards I can say it was the best decision I ever made. I work around my childrens school/play group times and if I feel like a day off I take it. So I can take the girls out, or take them out for treats all paid into a separate account (Separate account and bank card is provided so I can get paid within 3 hours of a sale) I also have booked a holiday just by working my business. This opportunity has really turned my life around! I have a team of strong minded individuals, and I would love to tell you more about the business and how you can get involved so you can to share your love for makeup whilst making a earning, even across the globe!!

So here is my 6 top picks form Younique: 

  • Addiction Palette 3 
  • Divine daily moisturizer 
  • Stiff upper lip, lip stain – Sultry 
  • Touch mineral foundation – Scarlet 
  • Touch mineral concealer – Fabulous 
  • 3D fiber lashes mascara 


First thing is first is the divine daily moisturizer! This is my must have skin care product for the morning, I also provide attention to the under eyes, so when I apply my concealer it covers dark circles better. The moisturizer sets to work fairly quick. Within a few days I noticed an improvement in my skins appearance. 

Then apply the concealer, I use a soft bristle brush and dab the brush horizontally into the product and gently tap, I only use a small amount to start off with and if needed I will add a little more coverage. The product applies really nicely and smoothly, so there is often no need for a lot of coverage. Touch mineral concealer is great for covering uneven skin tone and patches of redness. wakeupmakeup

Touch mineral foundation applies well on top of the mineral concealer it makes a huge difference to the face, adding the extra benefit of making the face appear air brushed. Mineral foundation is perfect for acne skin, covers up well making them appear less visible. 

The addiction palette is by far my favorite product! I love how colour rich the eye shadow is, it has a silky soft feel and applies nicely without any creasing. I noticed this products lasts all day without any budging and I have a just applied look all day long! The palette has a mixture of shimmer shadows, and matte colours. I love the fact that these colours are easily blendable and buildable. So you can have the look dramatic or subtle depending on occasion. 

Stiff upper lip is a product I can not spread the love for enough! One coat is all it takes to get a bold strong colour that turns from a liquid to a perfect matte finish within seconds, the colour does stay on for a long time and can also be buildable. So you can heighten the colour intensity even more! There is a great range of colours in the lipstain collection.

3D fiber lashes are fantastic, for a quick application to add intensity to the lashes they are also really easy to remove and hassle free. I love this product due to its simplicity, and it actually lives up to its name and promises. 

Fall 2015 Beauty Trends

Published September 12, 2015 by sarahsmith1988

I have been on the look out for this years fall beauty trends, and I am loving it! I love dramatic looks and bold colours and if you do to, you will certainly love this years must have Fall looks! 

The first thing I noticed on my adventure looking for beauty trends was the hype about dark lips. From the ripe berry to the plum black lips (aiming for the 90s trend) they are guaranteed to get you noticed in the spotlight. The moodstruck precision pencil lip liner “Pompous” works really well with the moodstruck opulence “Pretentious” lipstick, creating a lovely berry look To create a darker look the moodstruck precision pencil lip liner “Perky” and moodstruck opulence lipstick “Excessive” With a bit of blending and they will pair up nicely to create an ombre look.

The flushed cheeks is also a big hit for the fall, the aim is to create that fresh, healthy flushed cheeks look you get when you come back in from the cold outside. It is not applied dramatically, more of a subtle appearance to really make the face glow. Moodstruck minerals pressed blusher in “Sweet” gives the highlight you need for a subtle glow, the product goes along way so you only really need the smallest dab on the blusher brush. 

For the eyes it seems that makeup artists have ditched the gold and silver and aimed for a bronze. The benefits of using bronze really does warm up the face and works well with the 90s lip colours! To add to the eyes, graphic liner is the perfect tweak to the classic cat eye by using a straight swipe of black liner, (moodstruck precision eye liner “Perfect” is great to use due to its creamy texture) this is a more modern way of wearing liner that elongates and lifts the eye, whilst also added some mystery to the face. Another look, is the easy smokey eyes, and it really is easy to recreate! Just by using black and brown eyeliner. Sometimes a dramatic eye can be intimidating, and is more suitable for occasions, rather then day to day life. So creating a diffused look by using only two products, tones down the eye for more appeal. For the eyebrows, it appears to be the block brow look is a distant memory making room for the more feathery image, this feathery look consists of lightly filled arches that are brushed up and wild but yet still groomed! Using quick and small stokes of a brow pencil to mimic hairs, brush the brows up at the start and outward as you move towards the tail. To complete the eyes, lashes are going big! Large defined lashes are a must have this fall. If you are in a hurry and want amazing definition and volume to the eye lashes, using 3D fiber Lashes plus works a dream to create those ideal lashes!

Getting the perfect contour and highlight

Published September 10, 2015 by sarahsmith1988

I mentioned briefly in a previous blog post about highlight and contouring, so thought I would write about how to contour and highlight and share a tutorial video of how to do it correctly to really make your face perfect!

So, what does highlight and contour do? Highlight and contour enhances the cheekbones, slims the face, also giving the face shape to certain area’s and enhances facial structure. Highlight and contouring the face is not meant to be noticeable, it is meant to give the face a subtle definition. highlight and contour set

I would stick with matte products rather then shimmery products. To avoid to much shine and shimmer, as this does not look natural. 

Don’t be tone deaf! Lots of people contour with a bronzer and this is not recommended, unless you have tanned skin. You need to find something that creates the illusion of an actual shadow. 

Customizing your complexion using powders you will get more of a matte finish. Creams will appear more dewy, however using creams are ideal for beginners as they tend to blend in more easily and can build them easier. Using an angled cream brush to hit under the cheek bone and jaw bone, making sure you cover the area well.

The type of brushes used are important to get an even clear finish, starting with a small fluffy eyeshadow brush will help for more precision, always use two brushes, one for highlight one for contour. Introducing a fan brush is great for feathering the products into the hair line, under the jaw line and around the cheekbones for an airbrushed finish. Hard lines are never a good look therefore use a regular foundation brush or a damp egg sponge and tap it into the contour to make sure there is no demarcation.brush set

Remember to make sure the products are blended in well this is a must! Once blended in well, apply a peachy pink blush on the apple of cheeks, and add a luminizer just on the top of the cheek bones, down the bridge of the nose and a hint on the chin for a super fresh skin look!
