Life | Singapore & Thailand Trip

 Hello! I am back from my amazing trip to Singapore and Thailand. I have compiled together photos from my trip, obviously there are many more than this but I think this little selection gives you a true taster of my adventures. I have captioned all photos so you know exactly where they were taken and they are in order of where we went.

This holiday is one of the best I have ever been on, I don't know what it is but I absolutely love Asia and find it such a fascinating place. I guess it's because asian culture is so different our western cultures. This holiday was so amazing I truly forgot all my worries about life and just enjoyed it! I would highly recommend visiting all these places there are a real mixture of things to do, something to suit everyone.

We started in Singapore for four nights and visited most of the classic tourist destinations, my boyfriend and I also enjoyed a day at Universal Studios on Sentosa Island. Then we moved on to Thailand, started in Bangkok for two nights, Chiang Rai for two nights, Chiang Mai for one night and then Phuket for four nights. Lastly we came back to Singapore for one night before heading back to the UK.

I hope you enjoy scrolling through my photos, catch you at the end...

Make Up | My Everyday Smokey Eye


Hi guys, I wanted to share with you how I create an easy everyday smokey eye. 

First of all, for the base of my eye look, I use Collection Long Lasting Eyeshadow Pencil in the shade Vanilla Sky. I normally buff this in with my ring finger all over my lid.

Next I take my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette, I use two shades from this palette, Verve and Pistol. These are cool natural shades and are perfect for a soft smokey eye.
I take Verve first and brush it all over my lids, then I take pistol on a smaller brush and put this on the outer corners of the lid as well as in the socket crease. Then take a fluffy brush and really buff all over the lid. 


I will then take the Soap&Glory Kohl Pencil in Coffee Bean. I roughly line the lash line and the under the eye. I then take a small brush and buff it in. This defines the eyes even more.

I take my mascara, Maybeline's Lash Sensational and put a couple of coats on making sure to coat every lash.

And thats it, the perfect everyday smokey eye!

I have added a selfie below to show the finished look.

 

Thanks for reading! Let me if you love any of these products or any other suggestion for creating a look like this.
