January Wishlist!

Hey guys!

Today, I wanted to share my first wishlist post for 2017! Due to being so flat out with work over Christmas, I didn’t really have a lot of time to sit and really think about what I was interested in, makeup wise, so I don’t have many products in this wishlist but if you’ve tried any of them, please let me know if they’re worth it! Also if you have any suggestions, leave them in the comments for me!

‘Round and ’round like a horse on a Carousell

Hey guys!

Today, I’m going to be talking about an app that I think everyone who hoards things needs. I collect a lot of makeup and part of that is because I love it and part of it is because I want to talk about new things on my blog a lot but lately I’ve been watching A LOT of project pans, declutter, and minimalism videos on YouTube and I’ve become inspired to downsize my collection a bit. Especially with my Journey to Cruelty-Free. I’d originally been using Depop to try to sell some things but I never made much from it so I found a new app called Carousell and within the last week I made over $100+ so I just HAD to talk about it with you. This post isn’t sponsored, it’s just a friendly suggestion to those who want to make money and turn trash into treasure!

Journey to Cruelty Free #2

Hey guys!

If you haven’t read my first post in my cruelty free series, I’d recommend you start there before reading this one. In this post, I am going to be talking about the percentage of my collection that is cruelty free and how easy it is for me to create a cruelty free face of makeup with the products that I already own. I hope that you enjoy!

NYX FACE Awards: Fantasy

Hey guys!

The NYX FACE Awards is upon us again and this year’s first challenge is ‘Fantasy’! I wasn’t planning on recreating a character at first because I thought that was too easy but then I really thought about what was achievable and what would still be fun for me and a few characters came to mind. I teased a few ideas on my Facebook page about the characters that I thought were achievable in the time that I had to create this look and I ended up picking Sarah Williams from Labyrinth! I usually pick Disney characters and I wanted to do something a little bit different so TODAY I’m going to be sharing my Masquerade look complete with some Jareth bulge pics #RIPBowie.

Floral Avant-Garde look

Hey guys!

Today’s post is going to be on a look that I did mainly using Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks. I haven’t been able to post a creative look in such a long time and I feel so bad for lacking in that department because that was one of my most favourite things to post about. I’ve been wanting to get a little bit more creative with my Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks because I have quite a collection now (I still don’t have enough, though) and I want to start using them for more that just liquid lipsticks. I hope that you enjoy this avant-garde look!

I basically wanted to do lots of flowers on my face. I have the anther of the flower on each of my temples with multicoloured petals shooting out from it on my forehead and cheekbones. My eyelids and lips became an anther too and I added white dots to symbolise the pollen pods and white petals around the eyes.

MOTD: Christmas Looks

Hey guys!

For the last post on Pastelsparkles for 2015, I thought that I’d share the makeup looks that I did over Christmas. I went to four Christmas related events over the last week so I thought I’d share a few of the makeup looks that I wore. I only have photos for two of the four because the last two events were me rushing to get ready/not so interesting looks haha. I hope that you enjoy!

The first look was from Christmas Eve for my Christmas celebrations with my Italian family. I had a really great night with that side of my family. The second look is from Christmas day when I spent the day with my boyfriend’s family. I also wore Santa earrings from Cabochons n’ Crystals by Sherrell Burford. I’d definitely recommend supporting this little store because they’re local and affordable!
