My Makeup Essentials

 Heyyy everyone so in my last post I said I was going back into a fashion post this week but the clothes I wanted to focus on were in the wash when I was going to take the pictures. So today I am going to do my makeup essentials and do my fashion post next week. I have also put links to the products online so you can look at them and possibly purchase some. I hope you enjoy.

So my first essential (this isn't in any specific order) is my clear mascara. I use this to style my eyebrows after filling them in. However when I am only using the bare minimum I do use this without filling them in just to give them a little shape. This clear mascara is from an individual French beauty and candle shop so isn't available in the UK. Though there are many brands that clear mascara is available from.

My next essential is my mascara. I think it brightens up my eyes and makes them stand out. The mascara I am using at the moment is Collection Volumising Mascara. I love it! It makes my lashes look longer and thicker. It's one of my favourite mascaras and it's also waterproof which also comes in handy in Britain but comes off easily at night when I remove my makeup. Available from boots and superdrug I think this was an amazing buy at £3.99.

 Next up is eyeliner. I use a liquid eyeliner from natural collection in black. You can see how thin the brush is and this is a real positive in my eyes as I can apply it however thick or thin I like. It also applys really smoothly and lasts all day without fading. I'm afraid I can't find the link for this but I know it is still available in stores.

 Another of my essentials is my powder. It is the Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in 002 pink blossom. It makes my face look soft and adds a little tint to my skin. As I don't wear foundation it pulls all my makeup together by having the same colour all over my face instead of stand out blusher. It's my favourite powder I have ever used and it has lasted me quite a while so far.

 Before we get to my favourite part we have concealer. I use the Collection lasting perfection concealer in 02 cool medium. It matches my skin well and is a good consistency that blends well. This is available in boots and superdrug.

My favourite makeup product is lipstick at the moment. I have 2 lipstick essentials today. The first is No7 Moisture Drench in 30 Plum Beautiful. I love it because it is so moisturising and pigmented. As we are in spring I can still hold on to my plum colours but not for much longer as it isn't great for summer because of it's dark colour.

The other one is also No7 however I can't give you a colour or name as I don't think this one is still available. It is a pale red colour and is perfect for spring as it isn't as deep as red but not as summery as pink. I love this colour at the moment!

Thanks for reading today everyone and I hope you enjoyed this style of post. I think these are one of my favourite styles of post as I can tell you what I really think. I also hope this gives you some ideas of makeup you may want to purchase and as none of this makeup is very expensive it is great for someone starting out with makeup or if you don't have lots of money to spend on makeup. Best of all it is really good quality. Thanks again follow my twitter @eleanabog for updates on my posts and what I'm up to. See you next week byeeeee

The Best Messy Bun

Heyyyy everyone so today I'm back with what I think is the best messy bun method. I haven't done a hair post in ages!! I have curly hair so it's quite difficult to get a nice looking messy bun so have tried many methods to get the best look.

1. First pull your hair into a loose ponytail however high you want your bun to be. don't worry about too many lumps or having it being perfectly slicked back- it's supposed to be a MESSY bun.

2. Separate the hair in your ponytail into two sections and tease. I usually skip the teasing as my hair is quite voluminous because of the curls. However if you hair is straight this will give you volume and create the main body of your bun.

3. Wrap each section in opposite directions around the base of your ponytail. Until you reach the end.

4. Secure the ends with a bobby pin, this doesn't need to be really neat to achieve the messy bun look.

5. If you feel like the body of your bun is too tight or not the right shape then pull it a little loose with your fingers. You may wish to put some more bobby pins in to make the shape last all day.

Thanks for reading today and I hope this helped you get the perfect messy bun. I'll be back next week with another post. Have any of you got anything exciting coming up soon?? Let me know in the comments or over on my twitter @eleanabog See you next week for a fashion related post byeeeeeeee

My Boot Collection

Heyy everyone I hope you all had a great weekend and a good start to the week. So today I'm going to talk about my boot collection. I guess it's a little late to be talking about this as winter is practically over but I really liked the idea of doing this post so why not. 

So my first pair of boots are a little muddy as you can see so I apologise for the state of them. They are black knee length boots with a zip and buckles on the side and made from fake leather. I love them as they only have a small heel so they can be used any time. I have had these for a while now I think I got them last winter from Funky Dory in Northwich, I can't be sure on that though. I also can't remember the exact price but I think they were around £40. I usually style them with black trousers and any top or jumper.

The next pair of boots I got this winter from New Look. They have a larger heel and are suede with laces up the front. I use these for more formal occasions as I don't want to ruin the suede by using them every day and also they are slightly tight around the base of my toes. They were £19.99 and I think they were a good buy for those formal but not high heel formal occasions. These are normally styled with a tube skirt and tights for formal occasions.

The final pair of boots in my collection are by far my favourites. I also got these this winter and I think they are one of my favourite pairs of shoes I have ever bought. They are a maroon fake leather with elasticated sides and a block heel. These have the highest heel of the three though it doesn't feel uncomfortable on your feet as they boot itself is so comfy. I was very surprised when I got these as I had ordered them online and was wary of how the actual boot would be (as you may know internet pictures can be different to the actual thing). I use these boots for pretty much everyday as they are so comfy and go with everything. They were £35 if I remember correctly which is amazing for the amount of times I have worn them. They have begun to scratch on the sides but it is barley noticeable so I don't really mind. One of my favourite things to wear these with is black trousers or leggings as this is generally my daily style.

I hope you liked today's post everybody. I found it really fun to write and enjoyed thinking about styles of boots. What are your favourite styles of boots? Let me know in the comments or over on twitter- @eleanabog See you next week for another post, have a good week everyone byeeeeeeee
