A while ago, I gave you a post entitled 'My Wishlist' which told you which products I really wanted to try out. Fast forward a few months and I've purchased  a few of them, stopped wanting some of the products and there are one or two that I'm still waiting for. Because of that, I thought I'd bring you an updated version,  so you can see what beauty products I currently want.

1. Maybelline BB cream- £6.99
I find it really hard to believe that I haven't tried a BB cream before, but it's true. I guess since I've been content with my current skin routine, I haven't felt the need to try anything new. You guys know that I'm a huge fan of light coverage when it comes to foundation and I don't like wearing too much, so I think this would be an ideal product for me. I picked Maybelline's as the one I wanted as it's been recommended to me by friends and other bloggers.

2. Urban Decay Naked 2 palette- £37
I still really want a Naked 2 palette as it's got gorgeous shadows. Although I previously wanted the original Naked palette, I don't know whether I'd be daring enough to wear the blue shades towards the end of the palette. The naked 3 palette isn't for me as I don't usually wear pink based colours on my eyes, but the shades in the naked 2 are perfect for me. Despite wanting this, I probably won't end up getting it because it's quite expensive and I can only wear eyeshadow on the weekends, so it probably wouldn't be worth it.

3. Rimmel Stay Blushed- £4.49
I was so close to buying this when I went shopping the other day, but they didn't have the colour I wanted. This is a blush pigment, where you just put a bit on your finger and dab it onto your cheeks. Simple, right? I vaguely remember my mum using this on me years ago and it turned out really nice so I'd like to buy one for myself.

4. MUA Eye Primer- £1.50
Another product I was going to buy when I went shopping but this one I forgot to pick up. I don't own a primer and I always notice my eyeshadow start to wear away, especially if I'm exercising (if your wondering why I exercise in makeup, we have to wear it for dance shows). Since I haven't tried one before and I don't know whether it'll be good or not, I don't want to splash out on a really expensive one. MUA sell this one for virtually nothing so I'd really like to try it out.

5. Maybelline Baby Lips- £2.99
I don't know why but I still haven't tried these yet! They've been out for ages but I've never got around to buying one. From what I've heard they're supposed to be really nourishing and smooth on the lips, and the packaging is super cute. They come in a variety of different colours and flavours, some being tinted whereas others are clear. I really want to try one of these!

6. Rimmel wake me up concealer- £5.49
The only concealer I own is the collection one, which I absolutely adore, but I think I want to branch out and try a new one once it's empty. I have the foundation that matches this and it's really nice so I'm hoping to try this one sometime soon. I've heard it's great at covering blemishes and dark circles and lasts for quite a while, which is everything that I'm looking for in a concealer!

There you go, my updated wishlist. If there are any products that you think I should try out or I'd really like, just let me know down in the comments!

If someone asked me what my favourite facial care brand was, I'd have to say T-Zone. Their products are quite cheap, so savers like me don't feel guilty buying them, yet they're really good quality! Here's what I think of the products that I own:

The first T-Zone product that I got was their 'Spot Zapper' spot cream. It's a gel that is really strong but effective. I apply an even layer of it over my skin and let it do its magic. Although I can see some improvements when I use this, I feel like this is probably my least favourite of their products. This is only because my spots often get really bad and I need something stronger to treat them. However, on a good skin day, this is always the spot cream I will use.


The T-Zone cleanser has to be one of my favourite ones out there. You just apply a bit to some cotton wool and rub it all over your face. It keeps my skin clean and nourished, which is what I look for in a cleanser. It's quite strong and has ingredients in it to help spots and blackheads, which is great for me.


The T-Zone moisturiser is a really nice product, especially for dry skin. I'm not entirely sure what my skin type is, all I know is that it is sometimes dry and sometimes oily. I've found that other moisturisers (especially the Nivea ones) are really heavy on my skin and add too much moisture, causing me to break out. The T-Zone one is a lot lighter so it gets rid of my dry skin but also has spot-fighting ingredients in. 


The final T-Zone product I have is their exfoliator. I've not had this one long, so I can't give a full review of it, but so far I think it's really good. It does it's job, but it has an added bonus of getting rid of blackheads. Despite only using it a few times, I can already see that my blackheads aren't as bad and it is helping! 


Thanks for reading this post. Just a quick disclaimer: this post isn't affiliated with T-Zone in any way, I just really like their products. Goodbye!

I've been wanting to do a spring makeup tutorial for a while now but I've never got around to it before now. Since the weather has been lovely this weekend and I've been trying out this new makeup look, I thought I'd share it with you. Enjoy!

After carrying out my usual skincare routine, I went straight in with my Collection Lasting Perfection concealer, in the shade 02. I've been skipping foundation recently in favour of a more natural looking face and this product has been my favourite. I applied it to any spots and red areas and blended it in with a foundation brush. I also decided against adding powder, as I wanted a more dewy look, rather than a matte one.



I then neatened up my eyebrows using an eyebrow brush. I don't usually fill them in or add pencil to them, so I didn't bother with this step. I used the lightest white shade in my Primark eyeshadow palette to highlight my brow bone.


After this I went straight on to eye makeup. I opted for my Primark palette again , as it has some beautiful colours in it and is great for Spring. I used the second shade, which is a gorgeous champagne colour, and added it all over my eyelid, taking it to just above the crease. I love this eyeshadow as it is really pretty and the colour is lovely. I then took a random eyeshadow palette which has been sitting in my drawers for a while. I love the matte brown colour, so I used this in my crease.



For mascara, I used Benefit's They're Real, simply because it is great at lengthening and making my lashes look more voluminous, which is exactly what I wanted. The consistency is great and it applies really easily. I only applied a light coat of this as I wanted my makeup to look less harsh, but I still think it turned out really well.


Next, I went on to the rest of my skin. For a light bronzing, I used Hoola from Benefit. It is a gorgeous bronzer that lasts all day and really makes me look glowing. I applied this to the main points of my face, focusing in the hollows of my cheeks and my hairline, where I need it most. I used my Bourjois Cream Blusher as you guys know how much I love it.



To finish off, I added my Hoola lipgloss to my lips. It's a really subtle colour which I opted for to make my eye makeup really stand out.



Here is the finished look. I hope you like it as much as I do, especially for this Spring. My camera wasn't the best at picking up my makeup look so I'm sorry about that. I'm also aware that this is a really bad photo of me, sorry.



Thank you for reading, if you liked this post please let me know down in the comments!

Since some of you guys might be reluctant when it comes to spending money, or you're just looking for some great drugstore bargains, I thought I'd compile a list of my favourite makeup items that are all relatively cheap.

1. Collection mascara.
Mascaras can be quite expensive now, some are over £10! However, this mascara by collection is great considering it is only £2.50! It doesn't make your lashes look clumpy or spidery and the consistency and brush are good. One coat produces quite a natural look yet you can build this up for bigger, better lashes.


2. Primark eyeshadow palette.
These probably aren't as well known or appreciated in the beauty world, as they aren't from the drugstore, but they are still really good. There are 10 colours in each palette, all of which are well-pigmented and apply nicely. They last well and all of the colours are really nice. Why not buy these at only £2.50?


3. Sleek blushers.
I don't have one of these yet, but I have heard so many great things about them from friends, so I'll be getting one shortly. The single blushers are only £4.99 which is great considering how good quality they are. I've been told that they come in so many really nice colours and they apply really well, being able to build them up if you wish.

4. Collection lasting perfection concealer.
Ever since I bought this concealer I've absolutely loved it. It applies really nicely and has good coverage, which is good for someone like me with a lot of spots. It also works on under-eye circles. It's easy to apply and blend, whether you use a brush or just your fingers. If you're looking for a concealer I would definitely recommend this one, as it is only £4.19!


5. MUA lipstick.
At only £1, MUA have a great variation of matte lipsticks. They come in so many different colours, all of which are beautiful and pigmented. They also apply really nicely. If you are wanting to try a lipstick out but can't manage to spend a lot of money, these are great to experiment with.



So they are my 5 favourite budget makeup items for those of you not willing to spend a lot of money. I hope you liked this post, if you tried any of these products then do let me know!

Hello midweek post! I hope all of you guys are having a great week so far. I've been in school, which is where I got the inspiration for this post. I'm going to share with you a few of my school necessities, apart from my books and equipment. Enjoy!

1. My Natural Collection powder and a large brush. Usually after PE, my skin is quite oily or just needs touching up. Since I don't have a huge amount of time in between classes, I usually just carry my powder around with me. It's matte and lasts for quite a while, which stops my makeup from moving. I use this brush which is only from Claire's Accessories, simply because it fits in my makeup bag easily and I'm not worried if I lose it.


2. My coverup stick from Collection. Do you guys ever have a spot that just won't stay concealed no matter what you do? Well in case that happens, I like to always have a concealer with me. I like this one as it's matte and gives heavy coverage, yet it is more like a foundation stick in my opinion. It's also really small so it's easy to carry around.



3. Next is some hand gel. I'm one of those people who hates germs, so this is really handy to carry around with me. It's small so I can keep it in my blazer and just get it out when I need it.

4. My lips are almost always dry, which is why I find it handy to have a lip balm with me. Lately I've been loving my Chapstick in Classic Cherry. It's soothing and makes my lips feel softer, yet it doesn't have much pigmentation, just slightly tinting my lips. This is good for school as I'm not allowed to wear bright lip colours, yet this still makes them look nicer.


5. A deodorant and body spray are always with me when I'm in school. I have larger ones of these as they usually live in my locker or my bag, which is handy to have for after P.E and at the end of the day. If you wanted to keep them in your blazer pocket or just downsize, travel size would be perfect.


6. The last thing in keep with me is a bobble, or a hair tie if that's what you call them. Whether I want to change my hairstyle, my bobble snaps or if I have a friend who needs one, it's always good to be prepared and keep one of these with you at all times.


So they are my school essentials! If there's anything that I missed or you think I should try then feel free to tell me.

Yay, it's another extra post! I wasn't planning on blogging until tomorrow, but I was given the results to my exam today and I wanted to share them. If you want to find out more about my exam, I wrote a blog post about it here.

If you weren't already aware, I go to a part time academy called Lipa (Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts) where I do singing, dance and drama classes. We put on regular shows at the theatre and do an exam, which was a musical theatre one this year. My group done Matilda the Musical at Grade 4.

I got a distinction! I'm super happy because this is my first exam where I had to sing, dance and act in it, instead of just one. It's also a higher grade than I've done before (I'm usually entered at Grade 3) so it was a great honour to get such a good mark! Here is what the examiner said:

Part 1: Introduction to Characters and Scene. 
A clear, audible delivery and a confident start. 10/10 marks.

Part 2: The performance.
A well integrated programme with great ensemble work. Generally good articulation leading to a sustained performance through a concentrated, disciplined approach. Great preparation demonstrating grounded characterization. Effective choreography presenting a series of challenges for the company. Work next on vocal control for the dialogue making sure volume levels have a greater degree of control. Overall engaging work demonstrating an appropriate range of performance skills and group commitment. 76/90 marks. 

So that is that! I'm honestly thrilled with how well we did, I couldn't have done it without all of the girls and my teachers. Here is my certificate I got:


That's all from me. I hope you didn't mind me posting about something that isn't fashion or beauty. I promise I'll be back tomorrow with a new post for you!

Hello everyone! It's my first proper post back, so I thought I'd bring you an extra blog post, which will be a hair tutorial. Enjoy!

First of all, ignore the fact that I'm wearing a blouse and I have barely any makeup on. I took this photo before school this morning but I wanted to share it as I was really pleased with my hair, which is in a donut bun.

To complete this hairstyle, you will need 2 bobbles, a donut bun, a brush, some bobby pins, hairspray (optional), dry shampoo (optional) and any decorations (optional).

I started by spraying some dry shampoo on the front of my hair and the sides, as this is where it needs it most. I rubbed it in with my brush until my hair looked better. If you don't need to do this, then feel free to skip this step. I then tied my hair up into a ponytail using the thicker bobble of the two. Make sure it is right on top of your head as you will be able to see the bun better when it is finished.

Then take the donut and pull all of the hair through it, so it is around your bobble. Spread the hair around it so it's evenly distributed and you can't see the donut in any places. Once you are happy with this, put the other bobble around it  to secure it in place. Take all of the remaining hair and wrap it around the donut, making sure it is neat. Secure this in place with a few bobby pins so that it won't come undone or move throughout the day. If you want to add any decorations, simply add these now.

Voilà! This is the finished hairstyle, which I think is really cute for summer! I simply love it! Thank you for reading!

So as you guys have probably guessed, my blog has been on a hiatus for the past few weeks. The last time I posted I was a bit ill and since then I've had braces on and had absolutely loads of homework and tests in school, which explains my absence.

This post is just a little catch-up, my normal posts will return soon. The only difference is that my regular Tuesday and Thursday posts will be changed to a Wednesday post. As I mentioned earlier, I've had a lot of schoolwork recently so writing, editing and photographing two blog posts midweek won't be possible. I'm really sorry, but there will still be some extra posts when I have time.

In other news, there are so many exciting posts coming up over the next few months, from makeup turorials, hauls, interviews, product reviews and many more things! The best way to make sure you don't miss out on any of my posts is to follow me on my Bloglovin (link in the sidebar) or to follow me on Twitter @DaisiesDelights
