Beauty On a Budget & A cheeky OOTD

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

Hey everyone :)

Hope you are all okay!! Got a little 2 in 1 post for you all today! Yay! Yes so let's begin?

Let's start with the OOTD shall we, another gorgeous day today, hope it was lovely where you live too, I have been sunbathing today and I have managed to burn through a fake tan. Yep I thought I wasn't at risk as much ( and I did use SPF) but I have a red shoulder!! Stay safe kids, fake tan is not a SPF!!!

I did pop to the shops though (more on that later) and this is what I wore. I bought this dress from good old Primark last year like in September and I don't really like wearing light dresses with tights so it's been worn like once. Today I spied it in my wardrobe popped it on and I'd realised that I'd forgotten what a lovely dress it is. I love the detailing on the top, to me it doesn't look like a Primark dress.



Dress:Primark
Belt: Primark
Sandals: Matalan


Now onto my purchases, I went into Boots for a gander and it's 3 for 2 across ALL make up! I needed a few things ( a mascara and concealer) but then once I started looking round I found some other stuff I liked too so ended up doing two 3 for 2's and getting six items for the price of four. I only got four for me and the other two are for my sister ( aren't I a nice sister?)



I bought Collection 2000's Big Fake mascara, Collection 2000 eye palette, Bourjois Blush & Maybelline superstay 24 hour concealer. The concealer is favourite of mine and I was dithering between Revlon's photo ready concealer but decided I should go with the product that works for me. The mascara, I have heard alot of good things about, I need a new mascara and this was £4.99. Bargain!



The eye palette is to go with my No.17 metallic nudes palette, yes the colours are gorgeous in the No.17 palette but sometimes in certain lights my eyeshadow looks pink! I also think it's lacking a light colour so got this little trio as it was £2.99. Finally Bourjois blush, yes I know I have like a 990000 blushes, I just am obsessed with them! I love the colour it's a gorgeous girly pink and look at the packaging, so cute!!

So there we go, expect a Face of the day soon so I can show what these products look like! Hope you all have a lovely Wednesday evening, I'm going to go watch The Only Way Is Essex!!!
