My make-up essentials

First of all, how amazing is this make-up bag? I got it as a birthday present from tkmax and it was only £15. I love it so much much because it does everything you want. It's big and spacious, it's good quality and it looks good.

Enough about that, now onto the be honest when it comes to make-up i'm pretty simple. I firstly moisturize my face and then I apply a primer. I use the Garnier 5 second perfect blur primer which i love and I can safely say its the best I've ever owned. I then apply a light coverage foundation which is my Estee Lauder Invisible Fluid Makeup. I love this foundation because its lightweight, natural and can be used all year round. I don't have the best skin so instead of piling up the foundation instead I apply a good coverage concealer. I do not know what I would do without my Collection Lasting Perfection concealer. It has a good coverage and nice consistency. I then set my makeup with  my Clinique loose powder in the colour invisible blend. I then begin to contour my face using the Sleek face palette. I love the bronzer from this palette. I then use my Bourjous blush on the apples of my cheeks. I have recently purchased a new highlighter and it's actually from Lush's cosmetic range. It works well and gives a nice finish. After I've applied my highlighter I put on some carmex just to soften my lips and then move onto eyes. I don't do much with my eyes except for some brown MUA eye pencil in my waterline and then a quick coat of Benefits "They're real" mascara. Lastly my lips. The lipstick that I have been using everyday recently has been a colour riche lipstick from Loreal. I don't actually know what colour it is but I would describe it as a barbie pink. Most of these items can be found at Boots.

Wardrobe Essentials

White Top, H&M
Leather Jacket, All Saints
Necklace, ZARA
Sunglasses, MANGO
Handbag, ZARA
Ballet Pumps, Topshop
Jeans, Topshop

Before you start building up your wardrobe you have to make sure you have the right foundations. This means having all the basic and essentials. Above I have made a list of 7 things which I think are an essential in any wardrobe.
A pair of classic blue skinny jeans is a must paired with a plain white tee! Every girl needs handbags so don’t be afraid to splurge on a good quality handbag, because you will definitely get good use out of it. I have opted for an oversized black tote. Black because it goes with everything and oversized because you won’t run out of room. A leather jacket will always be in fashion so I would definitely say it’s a must in the wardrobe. A leather jacket will edge up any outfit whilst also tying in well with the rest of the outfit. A pair of nude ballet pumps will come in so handy in every girls wardrobe as they go with everything and are super comfy especially these ones from Topshop. Oversized sunglasses will be useful in the summer but even when it isn’t sunny they will help complete an outfit. And finally the statement piece…… whether it’s a necklace, a jacket or a handbag a statement piece can completely transform an outfit and give a quirky edge which will make you stand out.
Hope you liked my post and have got an idea on how to build up your own wardrobe.

Favourite Celebrity Style

I have to say out of all of the celebrities out there, model, Miranda Kerr is probably one of the most stylish and immaculately dressed people I know of.  Her clothes are to die for and her style is iconic. 
Just like all models she is beautiful, stylish and very elegant. The thing I like the most about her style is that it is so versatile and that she doesn't have a specific set style.
