YOUTUBE CATCH UP #17.

'iya loves,

I don't even really know where to begin.. I feel like I've abandoned ship. I was thinking of taking a break making videos but it's helped me keep slightly more sane. Things haven't been so great in my personal life. It's my own kind of personal hell. I'm not gonna mellow it out because to be honest it's not been nice and it's going to be like this for a while. I love Christmas, I don't want this to ruin Christmas for me, but I'm not going to be the same this Christmas. I know I won't. I've been spending a lot of time with my bestie Amanda. Partly because I only feel partly normal around her at the moment. Seriously she's been a god. She's been indulging my guilty pleasures with me, Geordie shore, got me hooked on Grey's anatomy.. We've had a night out.. nights in.. I don't think I've ever spent so much time with her.. She's helped to keep me sane. Something I never thought I'd say. It's too much pressure at the moment to blog and make, edit, upload videos. I will be accompanying blog posts with upcoming Christmas tutorials. Due to the lack of blog posts that have been happening on here. I wanna give you guys something I feel awful. I just feel totally different at the moment, I'm trying to sort it out, I'm feeling festive and then I'm in my down ass state the two together just don't go. I need to stop. On the plus side guys, Christmas colouring with Fia puts you in a good mood, that and snuggling under blankets watching Christmas films is priceless.

I'll be doing some LUSH posts cos mainly I enjoy them I know you guys do to. Stick with me guys, I'm sorry :( I'm trying to pull myself together but it's difficult. It's really not easy. I had no motivation to film for weeks, that's why I put my xmas decs up so early to give myself motivation to film. Granted, I'm still not happy, but I'm doing my best guys. I'm trying! Please do me a favour if you have any requests for new years eve tutorials please leave them on this blog post because I need to know what you guys wanna see! Thanks!!

RIMMEL | ECLIPSE.

'iya loves,




You guys know my feelings towards the Rimmel Apocalips this one is in the shade eclipse and it's the perfect shade for this time of year. It's the most gorgeous plum/berry shade. Depending on what light your in depends on how it looks. It looks slightly darker depending on as I say what light your in as you can see above. I've reviewed these before, so these aren't a stranger here on my blog. This shade I just had to share with you and I believe this one featured in my top fall lip colours which I'll link below for you guys if you've not seen that video. I think the formula if these is so nice. They're really easy to apply, glossy and great choice of colours. If glossy lips aren't your thing don't worry. Rimmel have got you covered. They've recently come out with their matte line of these. They've got four shades so far featuring a berry, red, orange and a dusty rose. I'm sure there's something for everyone, stay tuned to see them on the blog very soon! Find it here.

MAYBELLINE | EVERLASTING NAVY.

'iya loves,




I feel like neutrals, reds and oranges are colours are typically colours which are thought of when it comes to this time of year. I love navy on the eyes though. I think it looks gorgeous. This colour tattoo seriously is so gorgeous. I absolutely love it. I think it's gorgeous. I featured it in my top fall picks video which I'll link below if you've not seen it. It's a gorgeous metallic colour. I just think Maybelline have these down. They're such a good formula and they're just worth every penny. I think this would be perfect to amp up an everyday look it would just be such a nice change to browns and looks great for a night out look. I did a look using a navy colour on my channel a while back from an Accessorize palette and this would be great used as a base underneath to make the shadows last longer! Failing that, if you're in a rush this works great all over the lid for the grunge effect! Find it here.

THE BODY SHOP | TEA TREE FACE MASK.

'iya loves,



Ya'll know me I love a good face mask. When I uploaded my Body Shop skincare haul it featured their Tea Tree skincare range. My skin was all over the place so I wanted to give something new a try. Of course I had to pick up a face mask. I'm obsessed with face masks. If I'm not being lazy I'll normally do a couple of face masks a week. As of lately I've been terrible with my skincare routine but to be honest it's been a terrible time! I applied this face mask last night hoping it's going to sort my skin out. This one is great for one you want to calm down blemished prone skin. It helps to calm and soothe your skin. It's got a cooling effect which is really nice and that's without it being put in the fridge. It doesn't set like a clay mask so don't worry! With that being said though, your face does feel tighter after using. My skin feels so much smoother after use. I feel like this really helps to fade scars after breakouts have cleared up. Scars can take ages to clear up and tea tree oil is great for scaring so I've been going a little crazy using tea tree oil where possible to get rid of scaring from previous breakouts. I'd really recommend this face mask if you're on the look out for something that's not going to be too harsh on your skin, but get rid of the impurities on your skin, reduce pimples and fade scaring. It's one of my go to's when I've got little monsters on my face. You can find it here.

BOURJOIS | HAPPY LIGHT LUMINOUS SERUM PRIMER.

'iya loves,


Something I think Bourjois does well are their bases. Primers are still something I'm very undecided on. As long as you've got something between your skin and foundation I don't necessarily think it makes much difference. So whether that's moisturiser or a primer, to me they normally do about the same. However illuminating primers I do like. This one is more of a subtle one and it features in a very recent video that went up on my channel. My top fall picks you'll have seen me feature this in. What I like about this one is that it makes your skin look nice and radiant without adding too much. It's nice and subtle. It's a great alternative to the L'Oreal one which again you've heard me rave about. It sinks into the skin pretty quickly, and leaves your skin feeling moisturised. I don't think to be honest it actually pro longs the wear of my foundation, but it doesn't actually claim to do that. My foundation doesn't cling to any areas whilst using this primer either. I'd say if you've tried the L'Oreal Lumi Magique primer and that's too radiant for you then try this one! You can find it here.

LUSH | PHOENIX RISING.

'iya loves,



I feel like Monday's have become the days where LUSH posts appear on my blog. What can I say, typically Monday's aren't everyone's favourite day of the week right?! Phoenix rising is one of my favourite bath bombs for this time of year it smells like cinnamon and is just so warming. It's double layered with purple and green goodness, and you can see on the top there's gold on it as well. You're going to be left with purple water which I love there's just something about it. As you can see I decided to use a bit of a bubble bar with this one, that's what I sometimes like to do. I decided to use some of my 'pop in the bath' bubble bar to add some bubbles. You'll also find cocoa butter and shea butter in this bath bomb to leave your skin feeling super soft. I'd recommend you go and pick one of these up if you feeling all wintery! Find it here.

'iya loves,

I'll keep this short and sweet this week, it's not been a great week in fact it's been pretty rubbish, I won't go into detail it's just been pants.

ELF | RICH RASPBERRY.

'iya loves,




Rich Raspberry is a stunning plum/raspberry colour from ELF's mineral lipstick range which I love. I think it's perfect for this time of year. I love this formula of lipstick from ELF. They're quite soft on the lips without being drying. Really hydrating which is great as you don't need to apply a lip balm underneath but I always do as I suffer with extremely chapped lips this time of year! This last a decent amount of time before needing to be topped up. Of course with any lipstick when you've been eating and drinking they do wear off in the middle they don't claim to be super long lasting so you will need to touch them up then, but other than that I think these are great and I love them. They come in a wide variety of shades so if you're interested in what other shades they do you can find them here.

BENEFIT | ROCKATEUR

'iya loves,





Benefit boxed powders have to be one of my favourite products from Benefit. First of lets talk packaging. I think Benefit's packaging is super cute. I'm half and half on this packaging I'm undecided if I love it or hate the packaging of this blush. I can't work out if I think it looks good or cheap to be completely honest. The product inside though is absolutely gorgeous. Rockateur is a gorgeous rose toned blush that adds a slight sheen and healthy glow to the face whilst adding enough colour and warmth. It's perfect for summer and winter I find. It's not to bright that's it's just a blush I'd reach for in the summer, but it's not to dark I'd reach for it just in the winter. It's perfect for that flush of colour for this time of year. When you first get it, it has got a spray of glitter, don't worry after the first use that's gone. I don't think you can go wrong with a nice rose toned blush in your collection and this one is truly gorgeous! Side note the brush this comes with acts as a really good contour brush! You can find it here.

GARNIER | MICELLAR WATER.

'iya loves,


I've seen this little product doing it's rounds on Youtube and thought really what is the hype. If you've not heard of this it's basically a cleansing water which removes make up. Much like the famous brand Bioderma but a much cheaper version. It's in a 400ml bottle so you don't have to be using it sparingly. I used this for the first time when I got it a couple of months ago and oh my I fell in love. It takes makes up off so easily. More easily than a make up wipe. There's no tugging at the skin it's literally comes off so easily on a cotton pad. I have converted to this product. Don't get me wrong I do like using wipes to make sure stubborn eyeliner off sometimes if I've got a cotton pad to wet with too much of this stuff I can make myself go blind for a couple of seconds. The good thing about this product is that it's gentle though. It doesn't sting your eyes at all. It's so gentle you don't need to faff about with a seperate eye make up remover. I've found even eye make up removers can sting. Overall this has become a staple in my skincare routine I really love it! Look out for my skincare routine coming soon on my channel featuring this product! You can find it here.

MAYBELLINE | ETERNAL SILVER.

'iya loves,




This was the first color tattoo I ever purchased as I thought it would be a great inner corner brightner. That's what I first used it for and it was great. As you can see it's been well loved. I love using this round about this time of year to create gorgeous smokey eyes and also festive looks. It's a great base. It really is a great silver base and it so pigmented. It's the best silver base I have. It's great on it's own and I have just used it on it's own before and just kept building the layers up. However my favourite way is to apply some Barry M dazzle dust over the top which I've done in a tutorial, I'll see if I can find it and link it below for you guys! You guys know how much I rave about these colour tattoo's but I do think they're worth the £5. These work really well as a liner as well. If you haven't tried using them like that and need a silver liner, just take a liner brush dip it in the jar and try it as a gel liner you'll be surprised, they don't budge. I'm in love guys! Find it here.

Here's the tutorial I posted last year, it was a festive look where I used this color tattoo and the dazzle dust in action. I hope it gives you guys some inspiration and also some ideas. Let me know if you guys have tried this before and your thoughts!

LUSH | MMMELTING MARSHMELLOW MOMENT.

'iya loves,



I love LUSH's bath melts. They're so good when I want to treat my skin. I think they're great for when I don't want to apply a moisturiser when I get out of the bath especially if I'm feeling lazy. Their packed with oils that are so good for your skin and are super moisturising. Now this one you guessed it is super sweet. It smells insane. As a massive fan of the creamy candy scent this is another firm favourite it smells so similar any fan of the creamy candy will love this. It smells so good, and feels so good on your skin. As you can see you'll left with a nice pink bath, and honestly your skin will thank you afterwards. I don't like using these all the time but I like treating my skin and using these every once in a while! Find it here.

YOUTUBE CATCH UP #15.

'iya loves,

how's your week been loves? has it been busy with the lead up to Halloween?! I personally didn't do anything for it. As I mentioned in yesterday's post I did the normal pumpkin carving and did some baking. I also did Keira's make up but that's as far as it went. I do like Halloween but I was snuggled up in my onesie last night in front of my laptop! I've been editing videos like crazy this week too! It's been busy on that front! I've filmed an exciting tutorial as well today, my eyes are now very sore from it now! That's how you know you've filmed too much work on the eyes! They're completely over worked!
