(Video) Skin & Foundation Routine

It took 6 attempts to get this to upload to YouTube!!!

A lot of people have been asking about my skin routine so I thought I would make a video :) I hope it helps some people!

It was my first time making a nice ;)

Feel free to ask any questions! I'm sure I have probably missed something out!

Glitterbomb FOTD

I found my MAC 3D Silver glitter today so I decided it belonged on my face!

I took these just as I was leaving the house - I totally forgot to take the earmuffs off haha! Sorry :|

As per usual, the glitter looks rubbish in photos. It was pretty cool in person though :P

Green and White and Sparkles!

Ok, that was a terrible blog post title. I'm not feeling especially imaginative!

This is one from a couple of weeks back that I forgot to post. I took the pictures on my phone so they aren't great :( sorry.

I have been wearing this look a LOT recently. It is really simple to do but very in your face!

I really don't know why the pictures are so yellow :( sorry!

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in White
Sugarpill Tako (lid)
Sugarpill Midori (Crease and lower lash line)
MAC Steamy (to blend out crease colour)
MAC Vanilla (highlight)
MAC Reflects Transparent Teal Glitter (everywhere!)
MAC Undercurrent eyeliner (waterline)
Soap & Glory Supercat eyeliner (<3<3<3)
Mac Haute & Naughty Lash Mascara

I really need to get my hair cut. I have been kirby gripping back my hair for the past 6 months! Going to the hairdressers to get my fringe cut back in because quite frankly, this..... not the look I want to be going for.

This isn't about makeup.

I thought I would share these with my beauty blogger friends :)

I don't really post much about the musical part of my life - but I am in a metal band called Orestea (

Me and Lloyd decided to pop a couple of acoustic covers online tonight :) One is a Jessie J song called 'Who You Are' (not very "METULZ" I know ;)) and the other is a song called 'Spirit Of The Stairwell' by one of my favourite bands - Circa Survive.

Enjoy :) (I hope!)

2011 Favourites

I have been awful with this blog recently. I'm very sorry. So much going on right now and I have just really struggled to find the time to do anything with it.

I did want to do a little round up of my 2011 Favourite Products though.

These aren't all gonna be things released in 2011 - but are me favourite/most used items from the past year :)

Foundation : Illamasqua Skin Base (Shade 6)

Concealer: I still haven't found one I love, but I guess I have used MAC Studio Sculpt in NC15 the most this year.

Face Powder: Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light - Medium

Blush: Mac - Pink Cult

Highlight: Mac - Chez Chez Lame

Contour: Mac - Personal Style

Eyeshadow: My favourite ones (although probably not my most used as I only got them in November/December) are Sugarpill - Asylum and Fyrinnae - Purgatory. This is pretty odd as I tend to steer away from Reds, and both are red shades! They are so perfect though, seriously - you need them.....whoever you are!

Eyeliner: Soap and Glory - Supercat (best eyeliner I have ever used!)

Primer (face): Illamasqua Matte (summer) and The Body Shop Matte It (winter).

Primer (eyes): UDPP

Mascara: Mac - Haute and Naughty Lash

Lipstick: Mac - The Faerie Glen or Shiro - Leeroy Jenkins

Nail Polish: Revlon - Facets Of Fuschia

Moisturiser: Good Things Miracle Mattifier Moisturiser.

Perfume: Haus Of Gloi - White Raspberry and Paco Rabanne - Black XS

Hair Dye: I have recently switched to a mix of Directions Turquoise and Directions Fluorescent Glow....and I LOVE it. It sticks for about two months without needing a re-dye and the fade out colour is really nice too :)

Favourite Collection: Fyrinnae's Halloween Collection

Most Disappointing Collection: Mac, Quite Cute. I was so looking forward to this collection but the things I got from it were all a bit "meh" I do think Candy Yum Yum is a massive step up in Mac's matte formulation lipsticks but aside from that I don't think anything really lived up to my expectations. The blushers were a bit rubbish too. I was really excited about a skin tone blush with a green highlight (Miss Behave) and I think had it been done right it would have  been one of my favourite products of the year, but the green "sheen" was just nothing. Even swatching just the green section just gives you a light glitter which can barely be seen on the skin :(
