Daily Makeup Must-haves


I really hate just blogging about nails all the time, i do want to blog about makeup and fashion too.
So today i'm blogging about my daily makeup routine and what i just have to use everyday.
I do use more makeup products if i'm going out, i will defiantly use lipstick and maybe false lashes.
But today is just my regular routine.

1. 

I first start off with my face. I always apply Primer (not pictured) before my foundation to smooth my skin and stop my foundation going into my pores and causing more spots and acne.
I use Dream Matte Mouse in Nude as my everyday foundation. I love it and i believe it is the best foundation i have tried. I also use concealer to cover spots better and to make under my eyes lighter.

2.

I use my AVON eyebrow kit next for my eyebrows. It contains a brown eye-shadow like pigment and a wax to seal the colour in. I only really colour in the fron of my eyebrows and this works a treat. Highly recommend this if you need to fill in your eyebrows if they're slightly thin in areas.

3.

I use Collection liquid eyeliner in black to do my flicked eyeliner. It has got a very thin brush and is easy to do a flick with. Also, it is liquid eyeliner, therefore it says much better throughout the day compared to pencil liner. I also use Collection Big Fake ultimate for my lashes. It has a thick, long brush so it lengthens the lashes and darkens them. Usually, any mascara i use only does one or the other, so i really love this mascara.

4.

Next, i use Rimmel Clear Complexion powder to seal my foundation. It is like the next step to getting smooth skin, it smooths the foundation and keeps your face from getting shiny. I use this brush from my SheInside brush set, it is really soft and the large surface area of it makes it best to apply powder.

5.

I have to use my Burt's Bees favourites everyday. I love the pomegranate lip balm, i have two!, and the cuticle cream is just perfect. I try to use it every morning to keep my cuticles from getting dry and plus it just smells delightful.

I hope this is helpful! I actually really enjoyed writing this post!

Love, Yasmin xoxo

Winter Floral Nails


Today i'm blogging about this cute winter floral design.
The base is Essie Who Is The Boss, a pretty, muted blue colour.
I actually used so many colours in this manicure!


(Both shots are showing the mani upside yes but the manicure just didn't photograph right otherwise).

I love this manicure! The colours are slightly winter-y and i like the mixture of different flowers.

Love, Yasmin xoxo

Dried Flowers Nails


Today i'm showing you guys this really cute, easy dried flowers nail art. I brought some dried flowers on eBay for quite cheap. All you have to do is apply the flowers onto a wet nail, then i added a topcoat to smooth it out.

The green is Revlon Minted and the glitter is Revlon Stunning.


The flowers is such a cute idea for a simple manicure, makes it look like you are a master nail artist! ;)

Models Own Hot Stuff


First blog post of the new year, Happy 2014 everyone!

I'm using the beautiful Models Own Hot Stuff for a glitter gradient. I love Models Own glitters because they are full of different glitters, like this one has Gold flakes, Small pink glitter, Medium circular pink glitter and large pink glitter. This makes them the best to do gradients with. Plus, I just love glitter gradients and had to do one with this new Polish.
The base polish is this really pretty Pink by Essie called Castaway.





You can buy Models Own on their Website or at Boots or Superdrug.
Also, they are having a 50% if they reach 250k likes on Facebook, so go like them!

I hope everyone has had a great start to the new year, and i hope you have a prosperous and joyful 2014.
