Guest Post: Back To School Make-up…|High Street Spy|

1 Sep

Hi everyone,

I’m Sofia, from Sunflower Style Blog and today I will be guest posting for Maisie! Whether we like it or not, a lot of us are going back to school. But, not everything has to be bad. Back to school also means cute outfits, hair, and makeup! Today, I have a cute back to school makeup look for you all! This look is really cute, and not very time consuming, which is perfect for mornings where we’re rushing out the door! On to the makeup look!

To start with, I primed my face with the Maybelline instant pore eraser. Then, using a makeup sponge, I applied the Maybelline dream fresh, bb cream. This bb cream, offers light/medium coverage, so it is perfect for days where you don’t want to wear too much makeup (I’m in the shade light). After that, I concealed my under eye circles with the Maybelline dream lumi touch concealer in the shade 02 nude. This concealer is flawless! Not only does it give great coverage, but it also highlights. I set all of that with the Revlon colorstay pressed powder (in the light/medium color). Applying powder will guarantee that your makeup lasts longer. I also recommend keeping one in your purse/ backpack for quick touch ups. To keep my eyebrows in place, I used the Maybelline great lash in clear. For eyeshadow, I used my Urban Decay naked basics palette. On my lids, I used the color Venus, and on my crease I used the color faint. To top it off, I wore the Covergirl clump crusher mascara in very black, and the Maybelline color whisper in petal rebel.

This look is very natural, and perfect for long school days. This is a look that I would personally wear for school, but unfortunately we can’t wear makeup at my school. I really enjoyed writing this post for you all, and I hope you liked it!

Jemima’s 3 Top Tips For Awesome Nails! *Guest Post* |High Street Spy|

6 Jun
Hello Maisie’s readers 😉
My name is Jemima and I like doing nail art (I am no pro or anything but I do it quite a lot), so Maisie suggested I write about it for her blog! I came up with some tips on how to do nail art aswell as some pictures of my own:
1. The right tools
This one is a little silly coming from me because I don’t actually currently own and nail art pens, however it makes starting out muuchh easier if you have them. A good example is of my aztec nails, which took a long time to do with coctail sticks but could have been much easier with the pens:

2. Get a good design
The best way to do this when starting out is to find a picture that is already on nails, so you can see how they have done it and work out the width of the lines etc. I use instagram to look through designs of nail art accounts! (If you want to check out my nail art instagram it’s jemsnailss #ShamelessSelfPromo)
3. Always do an extra coat!
The worst thing when you have done a design you’re really proud of is when it chips the next day, which happens nearly all the time with me! So make sure you always put an extra coat of clear polish on top, just to be safe 😉
Thank you for reading! (And thanks Maisie for putting me on your blog :D) I will leave you with a couple of my favourite designs..

A quick note from Maisie: I hope you all liked this post by one of my favourite people, it’s nice to see something different on my blog because my nail art skills are pretty shocking. It’s only one more stressful until I have finished my exams all together, so thank you Jemima for helping to fill up my huge absence! If anyone else would like to collab next week while I’m still busy, it would mean a lot to me and I would really appreciate it, please comment below, drop me an e-mail or tweet me (you can find that in the side bar.) See you all soon. Remember to give this a like to show your appreciation for Jemima’s awesome nails, and I can’t wait for her to do mine this summer 😉 Maisie x
