What do i take for an overnight stay?

Hello everybody :)

So my first video on my channel was a whats in my travel make-up bag. This included all the things that I took home from university in order to be able to my make-up, and because I was gone for several days I took quite a bit home. However linking in with that I wanted to show you what I take when I am just going to stay somewhere for one night. For example when I stay at my boyfriends house.

What I am about to show you it also what I wear as my go to make-up at the minute so if you would like to see my go to make-up please let me know!

So without further ado this is what I take with me:

Foundation: MAC Face and Body (C1)

This gives a nice build-able coverage, you can also sheer it our with moisturiser if it is too thick for your liking.

Concealer: Collection Lasting Perfection (Fair 1)

This is the tried and tested concealer of the beauty world, it is simple to apply and really bendable, with good coverage.

Powder: L'Oreal Nude BB Magique (Light)

I love this powder for just taking away the sheen on the skin left by my foundation and to set all my cream products in place.

Bronzer: Benefit Hoola

This bronzer is great to contour, and also to add a bit of warmth to the face. It is also easily bendable on the skin.

Blush: Nars Orgasam

This blush again is something that is always hyped about in the beauty community. This blush is a lovely pink with gold shimmer in it giving your skin a nice flushed glow.
(This was the blush I happened to pick on the day, however my blush is the one thing i tend to change  from day to day)

Eyeliner: L'Oreal Super Liner Black Laquer

This is by far my favourite liquid liner and it super easy to apply for that simple everyday winged eyeliner.

Mascara: Covergirl Lastblast.

This is my favourite drug store mascara, and I am actually gutted you can not buy it in the UK so i am going to stock up when I go to America again. This mascara just gives my lashes tons of volume without making them too clumpy.

Lipstick: MAC Rebel (satin finish)

This is my favourite lipstick all year round, but i wear it constantly in the winter with this simple everyday look. Occasionally I might swap it out for a nude but most of the time I will be wearing this.

p.s I apologise for the not so great picture quality, I left my camera at home so had to take these on my phone. I promise I will have better picture quality soon.

The start of something new...

Hello everybody :)

I just wanted to start of my new blog with a little bit about me. My name is Jennifer, and I am currently a first year university student studying Media and Communication.

In my spare time I like to make YouTube videos, I have very recently started my new channel. I hope that I can make this one into something that I am very proud of. You can check my channel out here: https://www.youtube.com/user/rebelpurple3

My YouTube channel and blog's main focus are going to be on make-up and beauty, as that is what I have the biggest interest in. However I will also include fashion posts, as well as every day life posts, including my university experience.

I am aiming at uploading at least one video a week to my YouTube channel, and at least 2 blogs posts here. I have a bunch of idea's for blog posts and video which I am hoping will be coming your way very shortly.
