Daydreaming about this palette…

Lottie London is a brand I’ve been following for ages. I first saw their products in Superdrug and fell in love with their super soft and colourful makeup brushes. Some of their nail polish shades make me want to cry with how beautiful they are, and I’ve been waiting to get my hands on some of their brush cleanser to try it out but its always sold out (I’m taking that as a good sign).

If you follow them on instagram, you’ll have seen that they’ve brought out two new palettes to get you #SelfieReady. My favourite out of the two is definitely Seize The Daydream. I’m not usually a huge fan of neutrals because I like a pop of colour, but, I’ve started to get into them recently this season. What I love about this palette has some plum and purple shades as well as two classic neutral shades, that way I can still have some colour in my look thats perfect for autumn, but I can also stay pretty neutral for my everyday makeup.

What’s also great is that this palette comes with a bronzer, blush and highlight shade that compliments the colour palette. This means that if you’re on the go, you can keep your makeup products in your bag for touch ups to a minimum, or if you’re travelling it really shrinks the size of your makeup bag.

Something that’s also not to be argued about is the price. This palette that contains six eyeshadow shades and a highlighter, blusher and bronzer will only set you back a meagre £11.99. For such a multifunctional palette, it’s great value and for someone who is always conscious about money, I would have no qualms about buying this product.

What do you guys think?

A Little Bit Of An Update!

So you lot may have noticed that there’s been a lack of posts over the last couple of weeks. It’s not because I’ve given up or because I’ve forgotten about this blog, but it’s because this blog is undergoing a complete revamp. I’ve been thinking really seriously recently about what I want this blog’s purpose to be and how to integrate it into my other social media plans.

Therefore, I’ll firstly tell you about those plans. As you know, I’ve been doing the #100DaysOfMakeup Challenge over on instagram and its actually going really well. It’s doing great things for my instagram profile and I’m being noticed by makeup companies who want to do things with me, which is amazing. I really want to keep things going on instagram but eventually, I hope to use it as a springboard to start up a YouTube account so I can post tutorials and I’ve always wanted to do Get Ready With Me videos. With the new job I’ve just got, I’ll actually be able to afford a decent camera and some lighting so that I can get started,

That’s also where this blog will come in. I’ll be able to take really good photos for this too. But I also want this blog to run alongside anything I do on YouTube. I’m aiming to post two or three videos a week, the first being on a Tuesday. On this blog will be the video and a full list of the products I used to create the look. Then, the next video will be on a Wednesday. On my channel, the video will be a tutorial using a product that is either brand new, or simply new to me. Then, to accompany that, on this blog there’ll be a full review with my honest opinion. The final video will be a miscellaneous one, so could be a challenge video, a Get Ready With Me, just whatever I feel like doing.

But I don’t want this blog just to be an accompaniment. I want it to have it’s own stand alone thing too. So, if I come across any hacks, I’ll try them out and post about them on here, I’ll be making my Dear Makeup Fairy posts a regular, monthly thing and also any hauls that I do will be posted on here.

I really hope you’re as excited for the development of this blog as I am. I really, really want to make all this social media into a full time job because I love it so much so I’m working really hard to make it the best it can be.
