BLOGMAS #5: my Outfit of the Day and Face of the Day!

Hey guys,

Welcome to Day 5 of Blogmas, I honestly thought that I wouldn't even get this far into December but here we are with an outfit and fotd post. I'm seriously so inexperienced when it comes to taking outfit photos and I haven't yet bought a decent camera. The following photos were taken on my phone in my Uni Halls kitchen (mmm... classy) yes anyway dreadful photo taking aside let's get into it!




I love this outfit, I find it very Christmas appropriate! I bought the jumper from H&M for £7.99 and it is so very comfy if not a bit sheer. The sleeves slip perfectly onto my hands and the bobbly texture of the jumper adds a unique twist to the look. The beautiful red colour is very very bright so it's a great accent clothing item to enhance the floral skirt I bought which is also from H&M for £7.00. 

I had to wear a black tank top underneath this jumper, it's not necessary but it has been very chilly where I am currently living so naturally I had to bring in a few layers to the table anywhere possible. On my legs I am wearing black leggings also from H&M (this is not a sponsored post in any way, shape or form I just quite simply clearly adore H&M) whose leggings are so comfortable and a great quality and I believe they are around £5.99.

I bought my boots from New Look for £20.00 and well mini rant, to put it bluntly they are really not at all good quality! After having them for only a couple of weeks the leather came off on one side of my right shoe revealing the layer underneath and let me tell you guys, these shoes are definitely not waterproof. Other than that, I love the fact that they are wide fit, I appreciate that New Look but please please pleaseee increase the quality of your products.




Yes, I took a lot of selfies this day but I just wanted to run through what make-up I wore and what my basic make-up routine is:

For foundation I'm wearing Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in Light Bronze, then I apply Collection 2000's Lasting Perfection concealer underneath my eyes. Next I take a flat powder brush and run Rimmel London's Stay Matte powder in Warm Beige over my face to set everything down.
 Next I fill in my eyebrows with Wet n Wild's eyebrow palette and I dab a flat angled brush over them to get a precise shape. 

For my eye makeup I take MUA's Undress Me Too palette using the Tranquil eyeshadow and using my fingers I just swipe that over my eyes. To add a bit of definition to my eyes I add the Obsessed colour to the outer corners. After my eyeshadow I would normally do my eyeliner, I use Loreal's Super Liner in Black honestly the best liquid eyeliner I have ever used. Once my eyeliner has fully dried I use an eyelash curler on my lashes and then I use the Colossal Go Extreme! Mascara in waterproof. 

On some days I like to tightline my waterline with black eyeliner but most days I skip this step. For the final touch I add lipstick and today I'm wearing Maybelline New Yorks Colour Sensational Lip Liner in Pleasure Me Red (bit of an awkward lipstick name but let's move on). 

That is my OOTD and FOTD guys I hope you enjoyed it I want to apologise again for the amateur photography that I had going on, you should've seen my setup, I placed my phone into a candle jar and put it on a 10 second timer so I could focus and run to a good enough spot to get my outfit photographed in time. Haha my apologies! I hope you guys enjoyed this post,
God bless,
All my love,
