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!

Eat. Sleep. Revision. Repeat. |High Street Spy|

16 Mar

Hello lovely ones,

I feel I haven’t blogged in like forever, and I put that down to 2 reasons, not really knowing what to blog and because in a few months I am taking GCSE exams, so I am revising bits and bobs, which I know is probably not enough and I need to do more. So basically the closer I get to exams, the less and less I will be able to blog, maybe not at all if I’m honest because that is my priority, then I will be right back to all you lovely lot. I hope I don’t lose too many of you wonderful readers during this time, as a lot of work has gone into the small number of followers my blog has so please don’t unfollow me because I will be back.

Anyway, I know a lot of you are around the same age as me, did their exams not that long ago or will be doing them in a few years time so I thought I’d be extremely boring and share with you how I revise, and in return you can comment what has been working for you and we can help each other out in return.

1. Revision cards/ post-it notes

Boringgggggggg but I think they do work because you get to compress all the information down into small notes and sections which is way easier to remember. The only downside with these is that you’ll end up have loads and they aren’t very neat for clean freaks like myself, then can be easily misplaced if you are unorganized. But another way you can use these is a question/ answer sort of thing to test yourself.

2. Write in colour 

Your brain remembers colour better than just plain black because it can link specific information with a colour as a sort of picture. I used this method to revise my french speaking and I got a B, which is pretty good for someone who sucks at french as much as me.

3. Record yourself speaking the information 

Saying knowledge out loud can help you remember the information and you can listen to it back from your phone or i-pod when you’re feeling lazy.

4. Mind Map

These also help you compress your notes down and make your notes more visually appealing so your brain finds it easier to remember.

5. Revision Timetable 

Be realistic (unlike I have done) and timetable your revision, write down when you want to revise the subject and how long for, and remember to schedule in free time and other things you might do eg. TV and dance class. (If anyone wants a template of a revision timetable to print off, let me know and I’ll be happy to e-mail you one.) I am yet to stick to mine but when I get better from this illness I currently have, I will take it a lot more seriously. I hope.

For the foreseeable future my life is going to be eat, sleep, revision, repeat, but hopefully it will be worth it in the end.

How are you all revising? Have you tried out any of these methods and have they worked?

My posts will not be this boring again, I just felt I needed to make a post out of my blogging absence!

See you all soon.
