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.

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 bright red lip. Even though I used a lot of products, the look was really easy to create.

This is the overall look that I created (taken in natural lighting and not edited)

How my makeup and OOTN looked on TV
Some people may call me vain but I did actually watch myself back on tv.
I did take these pictures of my tv whilst watching the show back (don't judge).
I took so many pictures but to stop this blog post from being even longer I've only included two pictures.

I had such a fantastic experience and something I will never ever forget. It was one of the things I have always wanted to do. Everything about the whole experience was amazing and I loved every minute of it.
It's something I'll never forget and I will continue to watch and tweet about the show.

Max Factor: Smooth Miracle Primer and Miracle foundation review

I was kindly sent these products to review
Max Factor is such an iconic brand that has been around for years. I can remember Nana using it and even my Mam. When I got the chance to try out some Max Factor makeup I was really happy (infact I screamed inside) When I opened the package I was really happy with what was inside. The Smooth Miracle Primer and Miracle Touch Foundation. Both products claim to smooth the skin textures. Also, these products are advertised on TV and the models skin looks flawless. Anything that claims to make your skin look flawless and smooth I will try. As you all know I love a flawless, smooth and full coverage base.
Smooth Miracle Primer I 'secretly' hoped that this would have been one of the products in the package, as I really wanted to try it out. So when I saw this product I was thrilled. The bottom picture above is the primer using a small pump and on the right (which you can't see) it is blended out. I applied the primer all over my face and I…

W7 Powder Puff When I saw this in the box I was really excited as I've wanted to try this for a while. Also it is pink which I love as pink is my favourite colour.
The powder puff is latex free
Before I use this sponge I dampen it as foundation, concealer blends out better when doing so.
To create the flawless finish I bounce the sponge off my skin it also stops y…
