Ariana Grande Dangerous Woman Makeup Tutorial

Hey guys! As Ariana Grande’s latest album, Dangerous Woman, was released today, I thought it’d be fun to recreate the makeup look that she wore in the Dangerous Woman music video.

It’s actually a surprisingly easy look to do yourself, as it’s a mix of nicely blended brown shades on the lid, light contouring, and a pink/brown toned nude lip.

Collection Illuminating Touch Concealer
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder
Makeup Revolution Fortune Favours The Brave Eyeshadow Palette
Rimmel Brow This Way Brow Gel
Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

Here’s the tutorial! Hope you guys enjoy it!

Perfume Picks

*This post was requested by Luxe Brands, with perfume compensation.

Hey guys! I recently mentioned on Instagram that I couldn’t believe that I’d never written a post about perfume, because I have quite a collection!

So today I’m going to give you a run through my favourites!

IMG_1913Katy Perry’s Meow! | This is my favourite year-around perfume because it is quite light. The most prominent scents are jasmine and vanilla, which keep this perfume sweet and fruity, but it’s not strong or overwhelming. Plus look at how cute the bottle is, I mean it’s a cat, c’mon. I think it’s suitable for day or evening wear!

Zoella’s Let’s Spirtz! | I wanted to mix this post up by including some body mists too, and this one is one of my summer favourites. I think that Zoella Beauty got it really right with this body mist, because it’s a lot stronger than most body mists, I’d definitely class this as more of an affordable perfume. The notes of raspberry and cassis are quite strong, so this is much more of a daytime summer fragrance for me.

Ariana Grande’s Ari | This perfume is really unique, with sparkling fruits and an ultra-feminine floral scent, spun with musks, woods, and a hint of marshmallow. I do really like wearing this perfume, and again it is suitable to be worn year-around, day to night, but the marshmallow tones means that with frequent wear, it does smell a bit too sickly.

Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle | This is actually an oriental fragrance, but it is still surprisingly fresh. Unfortunately because of the overwhelming tone of fresh orange, I can’t wear this perfume very often because it is really strong (and people tend to love or hate it.) It also contains light accords of jasmine and rose, which adds to the overall freshness of this perfume. I tend to reserve it for when I’m going out now, because it’s a long-lasting perfume, guaranteed to last through the night.

IMG_1918Ted Baker’s Body Mist | This body mist is actually the reason I picked up a Ted Baker gift set back during the Christmas period. This is my favourite body mist to wear, because it’s main notes are grapefruit and mango. These, teamed with subtle floral notes of neroli and jasmine, makes this another suitable scent for every occasion, all year around. I just wish it wasn’t so water based, so it could last longer.

Beyonce’s Heat | This perfume really lives up to all of the saucy advertisement surrounding it. It’s super sexy, perfect for wearing in the inescapably warm summer evenings. I can’t do this scent justice, so I’ll leave you with the description from the site, “Heat is a floral, fruity, woody perfume that features rare, sensual flowers and is both feminine and irresistible.”

Katy Perry’s Killer Queen | This self described ‘floriental fragrance’, contains notes of dark berries and lush plum that ‘blend into an opulent floral heart.’ It then blends into an intoxicating background of precious woods and sensual musk. This is no doubt, a highly unique fragrance, again I think it’s a more of an evening fragrance, just because it’s deeper than most scents.

Katy Perry’s Purr | In an online survey, people voted this fragrance as a Spring daytime perfume, and I think it’s mainly down to its main notes of forbidden apple and green bamboo. It maintains itself as a girly and wearable fragrance, with the heart of jasmine, pink freesia and Bulgarian rose.


That’s it for my top perfume picks, I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Let me know in the comments what your favourite all time fragrance is!

Ariana Grande MAC Viva Glam

Hey guys! With the UK release of Ariana Grande’s Viva Glam for MAC I thought I would check out the colours and see if I was interested. When I saw the colours, I knew that I had to buy both the lipstick and the lipglass, because they are both so perfect for almost any skintone. I was also really happy to see that all proceeds from both the lipstick and the lipglass goes straight to MAC’s AIDS fund.IMG_0915output_FTtj6JMy favourite is by far the lipstick, it’s got a really lovely formula, which means that it glides on really easily, and it smells delicious! The lipstick is matte, but not drying at all, and it doesn’t crack, like a lot of matte lipsticks tend to do after a little while. I did find that because of the intensity of this colour, it can be quite messy when you’re applying it, so I would recommend using a similar coloured lip-liner before applying it, as that can make it a lot easier to apply, and ensures that it lasts all day.IMG_0923IMG_1220The lipglass is a really beautiful colour, and much more wearable for an everyday look, and I would wear this everyday, if it weren’t for the formula. The formula of these lipglosses is really sticky, and if you’ve got hair long enough to get stuck in it, it will get stuck in it. It’s nicely pigmented, so it leaves you with a really pretty light and natural pink that’s actually quite sparkly.

These colours can also be worn together, with the lipglass ontop of the lipstick. The sparkles in the lipglass sits really nicely ontop of the depth and darkness of the lipstick, but again, because of the intensity of the lipstick, it’s not for everyone, it suits everyone, but not everyone would want to wear it.


I really love both of these products, but I’m much more likely to wear the lipstick, simply because the lipgloss is a bit too sticky for me to wear for an extended amount of time.

I love the colours of both, and I’m also really glad that all of the money spent on these products goes to a great cause, let me know if you’re planning on picking up either of these products!

Free Spotify Playlist

It’s finally here.

I’ve been working on this for a little while now, and I can safely say I think I’ve covered all of my favourite jams. Some of these songs are quite personal to me, and others are just tunes that I really enjoy listening to, and get me up and dancing.

I thought creating and sharing a playlist with you guys is fun because you get to know me a little bit better by seeing what type of music I enjoy. Of course I know that it won’t be to everyone’s taste, but that’s fine because music is all about expressing yourself, no one else.

This leads me onto reminding you guys to never do something because everyone else is, or to listen to something everyone else is, or and this is the worst, not listening to what you enjoy because it’s not to someone else’s taste. Music is about self-expression. We listen to music that resonates with us, that expresses the emotions we don’t understand, or don’t know how to express ourselves, and get us through tough times by assuring us that we are not alone in what we feel.

I’ve said it before, but we are so fortunate to live in a world where people can be creative through music, and share their creativity with the world. Music is everywhere, in everything, and I couldn’t be happier with that.

So without further adieu, here is my playlist. I may continue adding to it, or I may make this a feature and bring you guys a monthly playlist post, who knows. In the meantime, do enjoy.

Do you have Spotify playlist that I can follow? I love discovering new music, so link it below!


I’d also like to mention that it appears the first song on my playlist is Shake It Off by Taylor Swift, it appears every time I link to the playlist. I’m unsure if this is a random fault, but I cannot correct it myself.
