Yellow concealer and I.

I have under eye dark circles, and i know I'm not the only one, and like many others i try as hard as i can to hide and conceal them. Benefit have a yellow concealer called Lemon Aid Colour Corrector and i have wanted it for ages, however, i have had to ban myself for spending on clothes and makeup as i am now in a supported shared house that requires rent and food! So i tried to find dupes and came up with none. A few weeks back, i decided to type in "yellow concealer" onto Ebay just to see if there was anything on offer. I ended up buying this!

Holy Grail: Tea tree oil

I've mentioned before how i have very sensitive skin, and i also have a massive problem area on my chin and have done since my early teens! Most strong spot creams or serums may get rid of the spots, but it aggravates my skin which looks worse in my opinion! The only thing my skin is fine with is Tea Tree oil, and i have used the Body Shop Tea Tree Cleansing Facial Wash for about 9 months and have used nothing else. I needed to re-purchase when it ran out, and whilst i was in the Body Shop my eyes fell on this little bottle of Tea Tree Oil! The woman went on to tell me how it was oil extracted from Tea Tree, completely natural and she said it was brilliant, so i bought it. I've been using it for about a month now and i cannot believe the difference it has made to my life (cheesy but true!)

Coastal Scents Haul!

Well i recently decided to purchase a few things from Coastal Scents after seeing it on youtube channels from people from the US, although i was quite sceptical of the cheap prices i have been blown away by the standard of the things i bought, so I'm going to share all of it with you!

Guest post: False Eyelashes!

I would like to welcome you all to my first ever guest post! This was done by my best friend Aimee from imNOTdisordered!


Hi! I’m Aimee, I run I’m NOT Disordered and Chelsea asked me to write a review on all of the new eyelashes I’ve recently purchased. 
So, these are my eyelashes with my usual e.l.f. mineral infused mascara (a present from Chelsea), I don’t wear mascara day-to-day unless I’m popping out. The falsies usually come out for special occasions and nights out. 

I’ve always used Eylure no. 140 as I find them easy to cut to my length, easy to place and incredibly sturdy. They’re also good for numerous uses as the glue easily peels off so there’s no build-up. I like these as they’re quite dramatic and wearing them with something black on a night out, has a good effect. 4/5 

Chelsea also bought me some E.l.f falsies. I found their glue more liquidised and very tacky but this made the lashes difficult to stick as they were constantly peeling away as I moved my fingers! Overall, I was very disappointed in these as I think I had high expectations because of my experience with their mascara. 2/5 

I recently discovered Primark are now selling eyelashes and I am completely obsessed with their false nails (the designs and quality are impressive for £1) so I had high hopes. First, I tried the ‘sultry’ ones, I found these hard to remove from the packaging without crushing the lashes but the glue was very good and made them easy to place. I really liked these as I found the similar to the Eylure but a little bit more subtle. 3.5/5 

 Next, I tried the ‘natural’ lashes from Primark. I found that the transparent glue left my eyelid incredibly tacky. I can see why they are the ‘natural’ look but I actually thought my eyelashes looked better with only my mascara. 1/5 

 Finally, I tried out the ‘volume’ lashes. I found these easy to place and would probably wear them for a more low-key night out like quiet cocktails with my Mum. 3.5/5

Colourful Aztec

Wow, this has been one crazy week! If you follow me on twitter (here) then you'll know that i have been going to a series of interviews, and i found out yesterday that i got the job! I have joined a private nail and beauty college, and will be learning there and doing an apprenticeship at the same time, and the apprenticeship is going to be at the DoubleTree Hilton Beauty and Spa! I could not be happier, its my dream job! So with all this going on i have not found the time to blog, but I'm back with some nail art!

I realised the other day that i haven't done aztec nails in forever! I think its important to do more intricate designs every now and again to keep my painting skills up! So this is how it turned out!

Lipstick Haul!

Well, i have officially gone lipstick crazy. I just can't get enough and even though its burning a hole in my pocket i just can't get enough. And to think i used to not like wearing it! Makeup is just not complete without a lipstick and its fast becoming my favourite way to mix up my makeup looks. Coral lips, pink and nude. As i said, I've gone crazy. These are the lipsticks I've bought in the last week (oops)

Old bad makeup habits #cringe

So i started wearing makeup when i was about twelve years old and was at my first year in high school. However, its only been this past year where i have learnt and studied makeup, and like most people (i hope!) have realised that i used to do some real dodgy things with makeup, so i thought i would share them just for the giggles
