Makeup Collab Challenge- Younique Moodstruck Adiction Palette 3

Welcome back!

This post was very exciting and a lot of fun to make, I hope you enjoy it. It's a collaboration with the lovely Linda Nicole, a Younique presenter from USA so when you've finished reading my post you should check hers out!

For those of you who are unfamiliar, with Younique I will be doing a separate post about the brand so keep an eye out for that. The challenge we set ourselves was to do our makeup using their Moodstruck Addiction Eye Palette 3 for as much as possible (eyes, brows, cheeks, lips). I love their palettes because they are so versatile, have good pigmentation and a nice mix of matte and shimmer shades.

This is the finished look I came up with, I really liked it and if you need any information about Younique feel free to ask in the comments.

For the eyes I blended out "tickled" and "determined" in my crease. I used "ecstatic" accross the lid which is so shimmery it's gorgeous. I deepened just the outer corner with a tiny bit of "irate" because this is a very pigmented pitch black shade and I used "smitten" to highlight my inner corners, smitten is my favourite shade in the hole palette it is super reflective! 

I lined my bottom lash line with "irate" and smoked it out a little with "tickled". I recently had my eyebrows tinted so I dipped into a tiny bit of "determined" and "irate" to fill in my brows, this was a challenge because there wasn't really any shade in the palette to match my brows so they're a little dark.

For my face I used the touch foundation and concealer from unique, they're very full coverage and very matte, normally I like more of a dewy finish so I used the NYX Dewy Setting Spray on top. I finished off my face using "tickled" as a blush and "smitten" as my highlight using a very light hand because a little goes a long way with these products!

For lips I used the Younique lipstick in Affluencent, it's a satin finish nude so I just tapped on a little of "cheeky" to create a plum/metalic kind of lip. 

And that's it! Thank you for reading and if you enjoyed this post check out Linda's challenge too.

I'm sorry, my poor neglected blog

Hiya everyone!

It's been a while since I've published a blog post, so I think a little update is long overdue. I could write about a hundred different excuses about why I haven't posted, but in reality everybody gets busy sometimes and rather than stick to my blogging, the serial procrastinator that I am put it on the back burner ...until now!

College has finished up for the summer so I have loads more free time for little projects and of course a summer job. So I'm really sorry for the lack of posts recently, I missed you my little blog I won't forget you again!  

It's been three months since the Operation Transformation finale, and I did go on to hit my 2st (and 2lbs) weightloss mark. Then I hit a bit of a wall, a few weeks of college assignments, exams, family birthdays and my sister's confirmation meant there was way too many treats and temptations for me to resist around the house! What's worse is my exercise routine found itself on that back burner next to my blog! But the important thing is I'm back on track now, and feeling so much better. 

So keep a look out because I have lots of good, health, beauty and lifestyle posts on the way.
