Products I can’t live without

These are the top five makeup products that I can’t live without and would honestly recommend to anyone and everyone, so I thought I would attempt to do so on my blog.

The first product is “They’re Real! Mascara by Benefit” in black, it makes my eyelashes look a lot longer and sometimes more voluminous.

Next is my NYX blending brush, I guess it is like any other blending brush but it is my favourite one and I use it in every eyeshadow look I do.

This is my favourite makeup product that I know I will buy again and again, the Viva Glam II Satin Lipstick by Mac. The colour really compliments my skin tone and it goes with every makeup look.DSC_0423

Every look needs a bit of glow and the Mary Loumanizer highlight by The Balm. It is pearl white and it blends easily. You can build it up for a blinding glow or use a little for a subtle natural glow.DSC_0416

Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Conceler is basically everyone’s concelar, and I use it in the shade one fair. The reason I began using this about 3 to 4 years ago is because most brands lightest concealers were too dark for me, and this was one of the only ones that suited my pale skin complexion, and since then I haven’t found one I like better.

An extra favourite thing is my CK2 perfume from Calvin Klein, I don’t really know how to describe the smell but it is very nice and I wear it nearly everyday.

Stay happy

British Summer Time – The Killers

On the 8th of June, I felt like I woke up at the crack of dawn (but really it was only 8am) to get ready for the British Summer Time Festival in Hyde Park. My sister, mum and I all had early bird tickets for 12 am so we arrived got our wristbands and sat in our place, fourth from the front of the stage.

The Killers set list was banging, they basically played my favourite song Human twice. The first time was the first verse very stripped back with the piano and a spot light on Brandon, and then the second time was the song in whole with staging and flashing lights. Hearing the 65,000 people singing (more like shouting) back to the stage was just incredible to hear and see – when Elbow, who performed before the Killers, made us do a back to front Mexican wave.


On the whole I think that this concert/festival was one of my favourite (EVER), the only downside was when I kept thinking it was raining, but it actually was the women’s sweat next to splashing on me from her hair and the couple of times I felt claustrophobic in between acts when you have to sit by placing yourself in between people’s legs standing. Honestly the best thing about it for me was seeing my mum the happiest I have ever seen her in my 17 years of living and this quite obviously made it all worthwhile.

Stay happy,

Lauren
