Back with a bang?... & a FOTD!

Hello my lovelies! So as you have probably guessed from the lack of posts in the last few weeks, that I have had a lot on my plate. I have had a couple of issues recently with my boyfriend. I mean, EX-boyfriend. Yes, we split up and it had come as such a huge shock that I haven't really felt like doing anything. Eating. Having fun. I've just moped and cried. It just feels like a huge part of me is missing (we were together just over 2 years!!). 

But I feel like today has been the first day where I've felt like doing something productive and I think it's the first signs of moving on. I'm not going to go into details of what happened as I will starting blubbering again and then I'll be back to square one, so I think it's best if we crack on about make-up!

The weather has been lovely these past couple of days and my mum had seized the opportunity and organised a BBQ for this afternoon. I felt like I wanted to get ready and make an effort but I wanted my make-up to be quick and simple, and still quite summery considering it's September.

(Excuse my spotty skin and heavy bags - all of the effects of a break up!)

This photo seems pretty product heavy when actually it was simple make-up:

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream in light (it was a sample), Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in Light, Natural Collection Blush in Pink Cloud, Urban Decay Primer Potion, MUA Gel Eyeliner in Underground, VIVO Brow and Eye Kit, MUA Mosaic Bronzer in Shade 2, Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Translucent, Bourjois 1001 Lashes mascara in Black, Maybelline Dream Mousse Eyecolor in Caramel Karma, 17 Instant Glow Shimmer Brick, Barry M Lipstick in 147 and MAC MSF in Rose Quartz.

Woaah. It sounds like a lot ha! But after using my Mousse eyeshadow all over the lid, I used my shimmer brick (the 2nd and 4th shades) just on the outside corners and under my lower lashline. I used my beautiful new MSF as a highlight on the tops of my cheekbones and my gel eyeliner just to define and add thickness to my lashes. All of the other products are staples which I use on a day to day basis, and I am so glad I swapped my foundation for a BB cream sample... so far so good! I may just have to pop into town tomorrow to buy the real thing!

Well I'm taking each day as it comes, so God knows what I may be like tomorrow! Hopefully, onwards and upwards.

Love, Juliette xo


  1. I'm so sorry to here that you've been having such a rubbish time of it lately. :( You still look lovely if that helps in any small way. :) xo

    1. Aww thank you! It really means a lot, chin up from now on!

  2. We don't need boys Juliette! Especially not those two, I think we've both figured that now! I realised last night, we should do something soon like go out or whatever! :-) x x x
