coffee talk, where i’ve been + quick eye makeup tutorial

Hello my guys!!! How have you all been? I’ve been the busiest little bee ever that I’ve had to take a break from blogging and being so active on social media. This is a quick lil catch up on my life and a super cute and quick step by step eye look!!

So what have I been busy with? UNI, for the most part. I’ll be in uni pretty much 9-5 everyday, working 5-10 straight after 2 days a week. With at least another 2 new assignments every week, bi-weekly tests and a LOT of classes and notes to continually be on top of, its so easy to fall behind and I literally live in the library now. (Also making time for the gym in between all that is a nightmare lol)

Oh but wait it doesn’t end there! I have also been applying to summer internships in my evenings (which involve taking tests and doing video interviews which are super nerve wracking). I also cook my lunches for the next day which takes up some time too (but Euan and I take it in turns to make lunch so it’s not every night I have to make it thankfully). If I’m not working, applying to internships, doing uni work or cooking then most likely I’ve got some kind of social event on – a birthday, a date, meeting a friend, uno actually trying to maintain a social life haha. So as you can guess, it’s literally been non stop for me, from the moment I wake up to the moment I fall asleep!

Okay, so rant over. I’ve just been insanely stressed and busy lately it’s stupid. I really want to be more active in my social media and the blogging community but it’s proving quite difficult with so much on my plate and just wanted to let you all know that I am trying! I’ve got so many post ideas and I’m fairly active over on my instagram! (Go follow me if you haven’t already, I just hit 400 followers in 2 weeks which is insaaaane thank u thank u thank u)

Alsoooo, I reached 100 followers on my blog and just wanted to say thank you so so much for all the love and support – I love you all!!! My plan is to give myself 1 day off a week (Saturday’s) where I just don’t do any uni work, work or anything unfun. It’ll mostly be time to see my boyfriend, friends and catch up with blog and social media things! Hopefully having 1 day off a week will keep me a bit more sane lol.

Anyway, I’ve had a few people comment on my eye shadow looks and some even asking how I create them, so I thought I’d share a lil step by step with you all!! (All of these shades are from the Modern Renaissance palette, usual from me)

Step 1 – After applying my NYX eyeshadow base priner, I used Buon Fresco on the outer third of my eyelid/waterline and in the crease.

Step 2 – Love Letter added on top of Buon Fresco.

Step 3 – Adding Cyprus Umber to the outer ends and into crease to give some depth. (I put the dark brown in vv lightly a little bit at a time and almost drew a wing with it then blended it together)

Step 4 – blending out the edges with q fluffy brush and adding Tempura to the inner eyes and inner 2 thirds of my eyelids.

Step 5 – Adding Primavera on top of Tempura and transitioning with some Antique Bronze so the colours and glitter fades together better. Finished my eyes with some mascara!

Step 6 – Complete my look with my usual foundation, bronzer, brows, etc!!

So that’s the super quick step by step for you – pretty much how I do all my eye shadow looks! I’m not too sure how I feel about these makeup step by steps but thought I’d try it out and see what you guys think? (I may never do one again cause my pics are trash lol)

Thank you so much for reading and please keep an eye out cause I’m gonna try and post once a week from now on!! Please remember to like, comment and give me a cheeky wee follow if you haven’t already (and also on my instagram too)

  2. Congratulations hun on the followers 😘. So exciting. Onwards and upwards. I feel you with being so busy and struggling to find time to blog. I’m in same position with work and life. But even if you touch base once a week or bi weekly it’s something and consistent . You’ll get there. Also loving the eye shadow look. I’m a terrible woman in the sense I just do not do well with beauty and makeup but i found this simple enough for me and better than videos i’ve watched. Thankyou πŸ’•
