Rimmel #Insta collection review

Taking selfies and uploading them onto Instagram is something the majority of us do. Whether it's because we are going out on a night out, to an event or because we liked how our hair looked that day. You want to show the best version of yourself. Rimmel have recently launched the #Insta range*. I was really excited when I saw these and couldn't wait to try them. As whenever I take a selfie I like my skin to look flawless, contoured and matte.

Insta conceal and correct palette This is a tone correcting palette to conceal the imperfections that you want to cover on your fac Peach Takes away the appearance of dark circles. It does this because the peach tone counteracts the dark circles. Green Covers any redness on the skin Lilac Use on any areas of your face that look 'dull' and on dark spots to brighten the area.
How to use I prefer to apply these before my foundation etc. Either use your finger to dab onto your skin or a makeup brush

Essence colour boost nail varnish review&swatches

Essence is one of my favourite high street makeup and nail varnish brands. I use Essence products quite often as they are really good quality and really affordable. Essence kindly sent me these Colour Boost nail varnishes. I am a huge fan of nail varnishes as I paint my own nails. The main things that I want from a nail varnish: fast drying, long wearing and opaque. In the swatches below, I have only applied one coat and no top coat.

Makeup & OOTN for BBBOTS audience

Big Brother has always been one of my favourite reality tv shows. I have watched it for years ( the civilian bb and the celeb bb) and I tweet about it most nights. I was overjoyed to find out that I had tickets be in the audience of Big Brother's bit on the side (for me and my Mam). To say I was excited to appear in the audience of the show was an understatement. Especially as I have always wanted to meet Rylan. He has always been the one celebrity that I have dreamed of meeting. When I met him I did have a fan girl moment, I just couldn't help myself especially when he actually talked to me and held my hand. Totally worth the 7 hours travel.
Anyways, in this post I will be talking about the makeup and outfit that I wore. I wanted to get glammed up but not dress over the top.
Makeup I did wear a lot of makeup and this will seem like an extreme amount to some people, but to me it isn't. I wanted my face to look flawless and bronzed. I decided on a gold glitter smokey eye with a…
