Your wish is my command! So it seems like forever ago that I asked you what you wanted to see more of on Midnight and Lace. It kinda surprised me that so many of you wanted to see beauty/ makeup related posts. I am no expert on makeup- I didn't even start wearing it until I was sixteen. If I'm honest I don't really know what I'm doing and just kinda shove things on ma face in an attempt that they look semi- decent!

I feel like a lot of us get stuck in the situation of having a trusted makeup routine. Ya know, the same products, the same routine, the same eyeshadow colour. I know I do- it doesn't matter if it's every day or if I'm going somewhere nice, I pretty much wear the same version of my everyday look for all occasions. I'm really hoping that by doing these beauty look type posts I'm going to be pushed out of my comfort zone and I want to try different techniques and looks.

 I just started by having a play with my makeup, I never get the chance to do a dark eye makeup look because I always worry it'll look too goth, so I had a go at a purple to black smoky eye and I kinda love it. Another big no no for me usually is a red lip- I have quite thin lips and always feel like if I wear any colour other than a nude shade, it will just highlight how small they are! But I absolutely love this lipstick and this colour!! I will definitely be giving red lipstick another go.

Foundation: Bourjois healthy mix foundation (shade 51) // Highlighter: Freedom Pro Highlight (shade brighten)  // Eyeshaddow: Makeup Revolution Fortune Favours the Brave Pallette // Eyeliner: Makeup Revolution Double Flick Liquid Eyeliner// Lipstick: Freedom Pro Melts Lipgloss (shade TGIF)

I had so much fun just sitting down and doing my makeup (instead of just going into autopilot and shoving everything on) so excpect more of these kinds of posts! If there are any looks you want to see, let me know <3

Till next time,
