Rockin' the red lips!

Hey guys, today I've got the whole morning off uni as i'm in at 2 so I decided to have a mess about with my makeup whilst having a longggg break from doing some work, I went for the traditional winged eyes and red lips and rolled my fringe, I've never really gone for the whole finished look on myself, i'm normally wearing winged eye liner and then nude lips, or just red lips and nothing on my eyes/face, so I feel quite full on today but I think my outfit dresses it down a bit! I hope anyway, don't want to be looking too full on at uni...

Face - Illamasqua rich liquid foundation
Dior face powder in 020
Benefit bronzer in Hoola
No7 blush in blossoming pink
HD brow kit in dark
Rimmel Glam eyes in 001 black glamour
Scandal eyes mascara

Let me know what you guys think! xo

Finally got a weave!

Hey guys, I know i've been pretty rubbish on here, but finally getting settled into uni took longer than I thought! Bit surprising really seeing as i'm from Lincoln and I only live 9 miles down the road! Sad I know but hey! I'm only human and I miss my family ;)

Luckily for me I have amazing room mates that make it so much easier and now that I have a routine it seems a lot better!

So anyway, after that little ramble, I'll get onto the post!!

So i've wanted to have extensions for a while now and I kept looking into different types and then putting it off because of the price and being lazy, but a couple of weeks ago my boyfriend said that he'd pay for me to have the weave fitted and all I needed to pay for was the hair! It was so sweet of him!

So I went and had my hair freshly highlighted (not cut, short layers are a pain to weave!) and then I went and bought my hair!

Because my hair's not all one colour of blonde, it has a lot of different tones I went to get my hair colour matched and I am 12/16/613 which is a light blonde with browns and caramels running through it, perfect match :) I bought 14" as I didn't want mine to be too long and I wanted them to look as natural as possible :)

I had mine done by a lovely girl who works for herself and is mobile so I had it done in the comfort of my own home which was lovely :)

The whole process was around 2 hours long but went soooo quick as we were chatting and watching telly ;)

I absolutely LOVE how my hair looks! Although i've got a bit of a headache at the minute as they're so fresh and tight, they'll loosen up soon though! (Thank goodness!)

Here's some pictures I have of my hair :) If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask, i'll answer!
