Halloween Special! - Cat Makeup Tutorial!

Hello everyone!

So tomorrow is Halloween and I've always wanted to be a cat for Halloween and I thought I'd share my cat makeup tutorial with you!

I'm no make up artist, so don't judge but I tried my hardest. I hope you enjoy!

                       First of all you want to apply your primer and foundation all over you face.

Starting of with the eyes, I applied a base shadow called... from benefit all over my lid.

I then took a shimmery silver and applied that all over my lid too.

 Taking a very dark grey, I began to apply that in my crease, creating a smokey eye look.

I then took my liquid eyeliner and made a cat eye flick on my lip but I also included a little triangle near my tear duct.

                                                Then I contoured my face but this step is optional.

Taking my liquid eyeliner again, I coloured a semi-circle around my nose, drew a line down from my nose to my cupids bow and lined my top lip and flicking the edges out slightly.

*TIP*- Use a liquid eyeliner that is in a pen, it is much easier to handle.

I took my purple lipstick, red could also work perfectly, and applied it allover my lips, blending it in with the black liner.

                                             I then added three dots either side , above my top lip
                                         and drew on whiskers, three lines either side on my cheeks.

And that's everything! You can also add cute cat ears and a cat collar also too look more the part, but I don't have these.











I hope you enjoyed my cat makeup look and if you are going to a party or even trick or treating and you go as a cat, send me your makeup looks!
Have a spooky Halloween!

Mini Lush Haul!

Happy Monday everybody! I know I missed last weeks blog post, don't hate me please! I've just been super busy with things like college and driving. To make it up to you guys I will post a bonus blog post up this week, and its gonna be super festive wooo! So watch out on Facebook and Twitter for notifications!

But FIRST, I have a confession to make. I have an addiction. Yes, this addiction makes me spend all my money but on the brighter side makes me smell fricking amazing. So theres this shop called Lush and there are so many all of England ( not sure about Wales, Scotland or Ireland) and they sell all sort of cosmetics from bath bombs to shower gels, hair treatments to makeup and skincare to fragrences. I love this shop and what makes it EVEN better is the fact that they do not, I repeat do NOT test on animals, and you guys know how much I love my animals!

Anyway... I only really buy bath bombs from Lush because I've got them as presents from people and loved them so I re-buy them. The other week I bought four bath bombs and they smell gorgeous.

I bought;

1- Mmmelting Marshmallow Moment (Back Left)

2- Dragons Egg (Back Right)

3- Sex Bomb (Front Left)

4- Sakura (Front Right)

I love all of these but some do have their disadvantages, here's what I thought.





Starting off with the Mmmelting Marshmallow Moment. This is actually a bath melt. It doesn't really smell like marshmallow, more like bubblegum but it still smells so good! It didn't do much to the bath colour but when I got out it made me smell so good and fell so smooth.







 Next up is Dragons Egg. I've previously had this bath bomb before and I love it. I love the fact that when I placed it in my bath it foamed, it made me feel very relaxed and pampered for less than £4! It smells so good of lemon before you put it in the bath but after the smell just dies out. At the end of your bath bomb, your bath turns a lovely orange/gold colour. There are also little bits of colourful rice paper inside so they float around too.



Sakura next. I bought all these bath bombs online and I saw thisone and I thought ' wow look at all the colours, I bet it fizz's a load of amazing foamy colours', no. This unfortunatley did not happen. In fact once it is fully fizzed up my bath water just looks cloudy. Yeah, pretty boring I know.








Last but definately not least, Sex bomb. This bath bomb smells beautiful. It smells just like the little purple Parma Violet sweeties. When you put it in your bath, it does not only smell so good but afterward your body feels so soft and smooth. I love this bath bomb, it is by far my favorite. It leaves your bath water pink and it is totally relaxing.








And that's it. Not much to be shown but it was totally worth the blog post. I totally recommend some of these bath bombs and they are just super cheap and worth it. For extra relaxing, make a cuppa tea, light some candles ( my favorites are glade, the red one is a Christmas special but I have lost the names of both of these candles, sorry) and take your favourite book that your reading at the moment and lay back and relax.




I hope you enjoyed this little haul and I hope that you love Lush products just as much as I do! I am considering getting a hair treatment and doing a tutorial on that too!

Watch out during the week for another blog post!

Do you use Lush products? What product do you love?xx

A Netflix Chit Chat x

Hey Guys and a very Happy Monday to you all lovely's!

It's getting colder and colder as the days go on (in the UK anyway lol) which means you have every excuse to curl up in bed with a nice cup of tea and watch movies and TV shows that you love!

One of my favorite apps EVER is Netflix and I'm sure billions of people like me love it too. I watch mainly TV shows on Netflix but the odd time I'll watch a movie so I'm going to share and recommend my favorites with you!

Starting of with my absolute favorite show ever, (I know I
should save best til last but if I don't talk about this sooner or later I'll explode with excitement :D) SKINS! This is show is about a group of friends that are aged 16-18 and get up to a lot of exiting, emotional and risk-taking mischief. It's filmed in the UK, Bristol and it is a total rollercoaster of teeneagers going through so many problems that you wouldn't realize how much it affects their lives! The only thing that sucks about it, but is also a bonus, is that after every two seasons there's a new 'generation' which sucks because you get so attached to the characters and then they just leave! BUT you fall in love again with a load of different amazing characters. ANYWAY.. enough blabbing about Skins!

Next is the a show called Gossip Girl which is another group of friends, a little older (17-20's) , and they live in Manhattan, New York. They are all posh and rich and get limo's to school everyday but throughout their everyday lives they get updates on this website run by 'Gossip Girl' which tells the whole entire world the group's secrets and lies which obviously causes mayhem! It also shows lower class people fitting in with the higher classed people and most of the time it doesn't work out well lol. Even though this show took me a long time to finish it was well worth watching and staying up 'til 3am most nights for 'one more episode'.

Another amazing show and if you have never seen at least one of these episodes then you need to stop whatever your doing and type in The Inbetweeners online NOW! This show is about four boys that are in sixth form (year 12&13) and they are just hilarious! They just say the funniest things that have often make me cry of laughter. They also brought out two movies which are both of a 'lad holiday' all about girls and drink and its just hilarious and so worth watching!

Sticking with hilarious, another very funny show is Miranda. She is hilarious and is a perfect example of a normal woman, yes, I did just say NORMAL because she does stupid stuff like we all do but we are too embarrassed to admit it! Her mother desperately tries to find her a husband but she only has eyes for one fella and that is called Gary. It is just a great show to watch!

Misfits is another very good show (now do you know what I mean when I say I only really watch shows!) although, I feel like you would only really understand the jokes and find them funny if you were British as its based in London and its about people on probation that get stuck by lightening and receive weird 'super powers' such as reading peoples minds and being invisible. This is a very good show and I did love it but as the seasons went on, my favorite characters left and new ones came in and I just didn't like it anymore.

FINALLY A MOVIE! White Chicks! If you haven't seen it you must of heard about it and if you haven't heard about it you must be living under a rock or something! This film is super funny and is about two black men that are undercover police and for a couple of weeks they have to dress up and pretend they're these two white, blonde ladies that go partying and other social events. Again it is just such a good movie to watch and would cheer you up if your having a bad day!

And that is pretty much it! I hope you enjoyed and hopefully you'll watch the amazing shows and movies I watch!

Do you have Netflix? What;s your favorite show/movie? :)

See You Next Monday!xx

EARLY CHRISTMAS PRESENTS?!

HAPPY MONDAY!

Just the usual has happened this week, college& driving lessons, but my lovely boyfriend bought me some stuff over the weekend that I thought I'd share with you guys!

Starting left to right, I got Zoella's Cosy Toesy Bath Soak and Shower Cream with cosy socks. These socks are super fluffy and make me feel all snuggly and warm! And 'Soak Opera' is such a nice smell that I can't describe haha.

Next I have Tanya Burr's Nail Polish in shade 'Fairy Godmother'. This colour is super gorgeous but when I picked it up originally I thought it was baby blue but in natural light it is lilac which to be honest is a bonus because morning you can wear lilac and at night baby blue without any hassle! You need to apply at least two to three coats for it to been seen well but other than that it is well worth the buy!

Last but not least is the 'Two Balmy', Zoella's Lip Balm Duo. These are both so so lovely, top one is 'sweet mint' which comes out nude colour and the bottom in Vanilla Cream which comes out a light pink. I love both of these but they both have their pros and cons. I have had many lip balms before that are vanilla but I feel like the colour of it doesn't suit my completion as I have pink undertones and I feel like it is too much pink BUT it is such a lovely smell and taste lol. I've never used a mint lip balm so I was excited yet a bit like 'what?' lol. It's sweet yet mint, just as it says on the tin, and the colour is very nice and neutral. I would be happy enough to wear this lip balm without a face full of makeup and still feel confident that my lips are lovely, smooth and glossy.

Both the Zoella Items are out for Christmas so I highly recommend buying them for your mum, sister, nan, aunt or even a Christmas present for yourself! Why not!

Hope you had a lovely weekend and an amazing upcoming week! :) xx

First Driving Lesson!

Helloooo everyoooneee!

Happy Monday! haha only joking but I actually had a very happy monday today because (as the title gives it away) I had my first every driving lesson! yaaay!

I was SUPER excited today and just couldn't wait to get on the road but I do have to admit, for months and months I was absolutely PETRIFIED.

When it actually came around to booking my first lesson, that's when I got really excited and I just said to myself, 'look at all the people out there that drives, like c'mon Destinee' lol.

But seriously, if anybody out there that is by any chance reading my blog and feels very nervous or scared about driving, just have one lesson! It's not as scary as you think it is plus, if your lucky like me, you'll get a lovely driving instructor and they will help you control your fear.

Sorry it's a short one today, I was just super excited! 

Do you drive? Tell me about your driving experiences!xx


P.S. I was really considering not putting this photo up but its the only one I had haha x

What's In My College Bag?x

Hey Guys, hope your all doing well!

Today I am giving you a tour of my handbag that I take to college everyday and all of my essentials in it! Enjooooy!

I bought my handbag from Primark, costing me £9 which is a total BARGIN! It's fits everything I need and yet I still have lots more room in my bag to throw something else in it. It also came with a pouch that matches and can clip onto the strap which is very handy for me because then I can put all my little things such as my antibacterial gel, hairbands, a pink love heart compact mirror, Zoella 'Let's Spritz!', a mini little deodorant and other things that come in use when I'm out.













I then have my books that I use everyday. From left to right, my 'Pin me, Friend me, Follow me, Like me' Notebook made by Jim Chapman. I find this notebook super cute and I use this all the time, infact I have two, one for college and the other just for notes. Next to that is my 15-16 page a day Diary by Collins to note down if I have to finish anything off at home or just for reminders. I also have my timetable and other important pieces of paper in there. Lastly I have the book I'm currently reading, stuffed in my bag. I bring a book everywhere with me and I have been reading this book for sooooo long but I never have the time to finish it! It's called 'Evermore' by Alyson Noel and it's just an amazing book and well worth the buy!

Lying around my bag I also have key's with keyrings from Brighton, the Brighton Wheel, a Shamrock, Disney Land Paris, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory 'Golden Ticket' and my USB so my keys are the most awkward and difficult things to carry around.









I have a cute pencil case with Bokeh effect love hearts all over it. Inside is pretty boring so I won't waste my little fingers typing lol. I also have the usual stuff that I have to have at college like a ruler, a folder and colouring pencils because you know, you need them at some point lol.

And that is pretty much it, I use this bag everyday and I find it is perfect because it is not too big but yet fits everything in it!

                                             What do you have in your college/school bag?

My Everyday Makeup Products!x

Hellloooooo!

It feels like it's been FOREVER since I last blogged but I'm back now! :D

This whole week I've been absolutely CLUELESS on what to blog about for this week and I was thinking about it for too long that I came to the decision of posting my everyday makeup products!

                                                          So here it is! Hope you enjoy!



Starting of with Primer, I have used so many before and my usual favorite is Smashbox Photo Finish primer. I find that it makes my foundation blend so well with it. At the moment I am using L'oreal Studio Secrets Professional just to try it out as I bought it in duty free. I have been using it for over three weeks now and I have pros and cons. Pros being that it is a great primer and does the job but cons being the fact that it's a creme primer it feels very thick and I feel like I'm caking my primer on whereas it should feel like a thin layer. I apply this with my fingers.

Next is my AMAZING but yet ridiculously expensive foundation. I wear NARS Sheer Glow in shade Deauville (Light 4) atleast 5 days a week. For my particular skin type, pink and yellow toned, I find that this foundation is not as good for lasting without primer. Other than that it's the best foundation I've ever had for coverage and colour match. I first apply this with my Real Techniques, expert face brush, then go over it with my Beauty Blender which I apologies for it looking so dirty!

After foundation is my concealer which I'm iffy about. I don't know, somedays I LOVE it and others I wish I would throw it away but I always seem to go back to Superdrug and buy the same concealer every time. I use Rimmel's Wake Me Up Concealer ( not sure on the shade) and I do agree it is a good concealer but I think I just need to find the right one for me. I apply this the wand it comes with and blend out with my fingers.

Following concealer is bronzers and these past months I've been using a few. Ive had Benefits Hoola which is amazzzzzing! Only thing is I'm quite light skinned so it's a little too dark for me unless I had a smokey eye going with it. After that I've had Bourjois Paris Delice de Poudre ( I know it's spelt wrong, I don't know how to find accents on this computer, sorry!) This smells SO nice but I felt like the product didn't come off well on my brush. I use a black brush that has no name on it so I don't have a clue where it's from (sorry again lol) I think it's just a simple, small blush brush. BUT the world greatest bronzer I use is Rimmel's Sun Shimmer in Light Matte. Words can't explain how much I LOVE this bronzer, I feel like I can put as much on that I like and still feel weightless. Also The colour matches me well.

Next is Blusher and I'm saying this now.... sorry mum! The blusher that I use at the moment is Estee Lauder and because it is missing from my mum's makeup bag for a while now I don't have a clue what it's called! But I love this blusher as its a mixture of colours such as pinks, browns and golds with a little bit of shimmer! :)

That's all for my actual face, my next step is mascara. I believe that mascara is the most important and I can not leave the house without it on my eyelashes and in my bag! I feel like it makes people look totally different and opens up their eyes more. I'm at the moment using Maybelline The Falsies Volume Express. I adore it but sometimes I change up and use Benefit's They're Real or Benefits Bad Gal Lash.

And Lastly I have to control my brows. I use Eyeko Brow Gel Shape and Define and I absolutely loooooooove this product! It lasts for hours and I always get compliments on my brows when I wear it.

My big Pink makeup bag is from primark, I got it for a birthday present from my big sister with a birthday badge pinned on it :) This one is full off my products. My second make up bag is full off my brushes and it is a Zoella Beauty bag from Superdrug.
Here's the final look ( with eyeliner and false lashes sorrrrrry again! I was going to my best mates 18th!) with all the products I mentioned above. I love my makeup and I love getting more and trying new stuff out! If you have any recommendations for me to use and review tell me and I will totally check them out!
