naked palette last year (now that was forking out) and fell completely and utterly in love with the neutrally brown shades. When I was in Superdrug in London (yes another one of my many London purchases) I picked up this sleek 'Au Naturel Palette' as it had so many subtle shades I knew I'd love it.
this top on Brandy Melville I instantly wanted it, what I didn't want was to wait like 3 years for it to arrive in the post and i kind of didnt want to pay 18$ for a top that really i could make myself for half the price..then i took to youtube and watched countless videos. turns out its pretty easy to chop the back of your shirt into a skull face in less than 15mins. yay. I picked up a simple black tee in Penneys/Primark for a euro and got to work this morning.
and the finished prodcut. I think it came out really cool and can't wait to pair it with my american apparel high waisted trousers. when you look at the front of the top it looks so plain, but when you turn around its like 'woah' haha. when picking out your shirt go a few sizes up, i went up 5 sizes and got an 18 just to add that extra slouchiness. looks messier. i've seen these tops on a lot of style blogs and i've seen a few that have different cut outs on the back, hearts, triangles etc etc. definitely going to try a few more styles (: have any of you tried this?
I love buying new mascara, its my favourite thing *cough* blog name *cough*. I especially love when I come across a mascara that is just perfect. I really like this because of the wand and how easy it applies. The packaging is pretty cool too. when it comes to mascara this is what i try to avoid. i actually see a lot of people who will happily apply their mascara like that and for me its a complete no. the purpose of mascara is to make your eyes stand out more, for good reasons, not spider leg reasons.
I like this mascara because it doesn't apply clumpy. i like my lashes to look full but natural at the same time and i think the wand really helps achieve this. as you can see each end is smaller than the inside and it really aids in catching those infuriatingly small lashes at the corners of my eyes. the plumpier bit in the middle helps build up the volume and gives me nice long, natural looking lashes with that oomph of extra volume.
personally, as long as a mascara isn't clumpy it gets a 10/10 for me.
