Get Ready With Me: Weekend Glam

Get Ready With Me: Weekend GlamHi everyone! Hope you all had a lovely weekend! This was one of the first weekends in a while that I’ve felt I’ve been able to relax and haven’t had anything crop up or on the go. I had been looking forward to this weekend for a long time, ever since Ellie Goulding announced the release date of her third album ‘Delirium’. While I was getting ready to go into town I came up with the idea to do a little OOTD/FOTD/Get Ready With Me post as well as sharing the rest of my weekend with you. Enjoy!

Outfit of the Day

Saturday's OutfitPants: Black leggings

Top: Cream t-shirt with black shoulder detailing

Shoes: Holster sandals in Pewter

Face of the Day

Saturday's MakeupInstead of just listing the products like I normally do, I thought I would give a step by step guide to how I did my face.

1) Using Garnier’s Micellar Water (not pictured) I cleansed my skin before applying Simple’s  Light Hydrating Moisturiser.

2) After 20 minutes I patted Rimmel’s Fix & Perfect Primer in the shade 001 into my skin.

3) Next I applied my eyeshadow using Maybelline’s ‘The Nudes’ palette.

Weekend Glam Eye LookI used the two taupe shades in the top right hand corner and the black shade to line my crease.

Eye Makeup Close Up4) Moving onto my base. I used Rimmel’s Match Perfection Foundation in 081 Fair Ivory and Maybelline’s Fit Me Concealer in 15 Fair.

5) For mascara I opted for my trusty Rimmel ScandalEyes Lycra Flex. This mascara gives my lashes a lovely curl that lasts all day.

6) Time for blush. Dainty Doll’s You Are My Sunshine is a lovely rose-gold and I apply this by swirling my ring fingers in the compact then rubbing them both together to get an even amount of product. I lightly dab the blush on to the tops of my cheeks in a circular motion.

7) You all know lips are my favourite part of my makeup routine and for this look I tried something new. I patted Revlon’s Tutti Frutti Lip Butter into my lips to get a light wash of colour then layered L.A. Colors’ Glossin Go lip gloss in Sherbet (not pictured) on top to give my lips shine. The result, a luscious peach lip!

Selfie Fun!All made up and ready to go!

The first stop for mum and I in town was lunch. The two of us shared a strawberry thickshake and some hot chips.

LunchAfter lunch the time had finally come to buy Ellie’s CD; what this whole trip was about.

DeliriumI couldn’t resist playing the album as soon as I got home and I suspect it will be a real grower. Ellie is one of those artists who I know I will love pretty much everything she does and her music always makes me feel happy and excited when I listen to it. I can still remember the day I purchased her first album and how I would listen to it literally every day.

There’s not much else to report really. Sunday involved me sleeping in and not getting up until rather late *ahem 12:30pm* and catching up on blogging and getting this week’s posts written up for you. I hope you enjoyed this post and do let me know what you did with your weekend!

    Great OOTD and MOTD! I love that Revlon’s Tutti Frutti Lip Butter – such a nice pop of colour and feels so comfortable on the lips. I really like the effect of that Rimmel ScandalEyes Lycra Flex mascara on your lashes, I’m going to make note of that to try.
    Sounds like such a nice time with your mom! 🙂

      Thank you for all those lovely compliments 🙂 The lip butters are so good! That Rimmel mascara is my favourite, it’s so easy to remove as well for a waterproof one. Let me know your thoughts if you try it!

    Hey Chanelle! I just stumbled across your blog and started skimming through your posts. When I get more time I want to sit down and read them properly. You seem like a really good writer, and I LOVE your content! Lifestyle and beauty are my faves!:’) ahaha. But when I saw your Face of the Day in this post I almost died! We use the same foundation, concealer and mascara! Holy moly! It’s fate! ahahahh. I love the foundation so much! It does wonders! The amount of times I have been complemented on it! And I love the mascara! I feel like it really makes my lashes look fuller!;)

      Hey! Thank you for such a lovely compliment! What a coincidence we use the same products haha, they’re pretty amazing though 🙂 I know exactly what you mean about fuller lashes! Hope to see you back on my blog again ❤
