Snow Day FOTD and OOTD

I didn't fuss too much over my makeup today, knowing I would be battling the forces of cold snowy wind on my way to and from college. However, I went for a dark-ish lip which is rare for me... I think I was feeling the winter vibes! I created this shade by applying a brown pencil over my lips and dabbing my purple-ish MUA lipstick (shade 2) over the top. Other than that, I'm wearing Revlon Colorstay, a bit of sheer loose powder, Benefit Coralista blush, a bit of brown eyeshadow on my top and bottom lashlines, Natural Collection Waterguard mascara and filled in my brows a little with my Sleek brow kit. 


I kept my outfit pretty simple because I just wanted to be warm and comfy:
Beanie - boyfriend's
Pleather sleeve military jacket - Primark
Cross embellished jumper - New Look sale
Leggings - Primark
Bag - River Island
I wore this with my battered camouflage print 'converse' style shoes, a big Primark snood and gloves, yet still froze my ass off haha :( 

A quick selfie in the snow when I got home from the exam :)

  4. I love your makeup! I have never been too sure on whether or not to invest in a Benefit blush because although I do love Benefit and their products, I've never really worn blusher and I think £20+ is quite expensive for a first buy! Looks great on you though!
    I hope your exam went well :)

    1. Thank you! I would say it was worth the money, i've had coralista for AGES and its only about half used up and smells so good:) but MUA do some really pretty colour blushes for £1 which would be a better first buy :) Oh the exam went awful haha but thanks anyway xxx
