The Youtubers Reign

Many Youtubers at the moment have been publishing their own books, and the ones I have been most interested in have of course been by the beauty guru's.

The book I first got from a Youtuber was Girl Online by Zoe Sugg, I haven't started reading it yet as I have still been hooked on Breaking Dawn, as I do love Zoe's videos I hope to like her book. You can get this book for £5 from Amazon.

The next book I got was Michelle Phan, Make Up your life guide to beauty style and success online and off. This is by far one of my favourite books by the youtubers as from Michelle you find about how here love for makeup started and how her YouTube channel started to grow. In the book she shares her tips on makeup, hair, nails, clothes, digital help, and also many other tips and tricks to help us all. From reading this book Michelle Phan is firmly one of my favourite Beauty Guru's. This book is £13 from Amazon.
My next book is from a Youtuber I have loved for ages Love Tanya by Tanya Burr. This book is great as Tanya shares all of her tips and tricks about makeup, skincare, clothes, hair and how to start a YouTube channel. Along with the tips and tricks she also shares her life before YouTube, her anxiety and love. In this book I love the pictures and also how the reader can write down notes after each section of the book. £6.50 from Amazon.
My most recent book is The Glam Guide by FleurDeForce, another one of my firm favourite YouTubers and Beauty Guru's. In the book I love the range of information from beauty to relationships, skincare to body image and travel to clothing. In this book I also love how the pictures are drawn and not photographs, I also personally love the rose gold writing on the front cover of the book. This book is £7.50 from Amazon.

Everyday Makeup

I have recently been loving Mac Face and Body Foundation, you can control what type of coverage you would like from, super sheer coverage that looks like you don't have any foundation on or build it up to medium coverage bordering on full coverage when you apply layers. I then use Collection Lasting Perfection concealer in Fair 1, when I use this with Face and Body I like to highlight under my eyes, forehead, nose and chin. I then use of course Mac Studio Fix powder to set it all in place, this will also give me coverage where the foundation didn't give it to me, it helps to create a flawless face and lasts all day. Next I move on to brows I have recently been using NYX eyebrow cake powder as it gives my eyebrows a more natural look.
On my eyes I first start off using Smashbox limitless 15 hour wear cream shadow in the shade gemstone, to create a perfect base and to also allow the eye shadows something to stick to. I then use my Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, I start off with Trick, the perfect rose gold shade, then add a tiny bit of blackheart to the crease to give some definition before I blend away. I then curl my eyelashes using my Shu Uemura eyelash curlers, for my eyelashes I have been using a combination of W7 Absolute Lashes and Collection Lengthening Mascara, to create length and volume. Lastly I have been loving Mac Peachykeen blush, the perfect peach shade with a hint of shimmer.

January Favourites

As the first month of 2015 has now passed, this monthly favourites has got a bit of beauty and non beauty.

 My first beauty favourite of the month has been The Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, a palette that when it first came out I wasn't too sure about. But now I have tried it I absolutely LOVE it !!! What I love most about this palette is that you can create so many looks and they don't all have to be BAM in your face pink. My favourite shades from this palette Trick, Dust and Blackheart. Along with the Naked 2 the packing is also beautiful.
My next favourite is Modelsprefer powder and bronze brush, a brush that I picked up in Australia and I have been using it non stop. I now use this brush to apply my face powder and also Soap & Glory Solar Powder around the perimeter of my face, I love this brush for bronzer as it does not give you a precise application, where as a contour brush would.
My last beauty favourite for the month is the Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in the shade Nudist. I'm not a big fan of Soap & Glory lip-glosses as I find they are way too sticky for my liking, so I was hesitant to try this but I absolutely love it I don't find it sticky at all and find it also has a great colour pay off.
My first non beauty favourite of the month of January has definitely been the Twilight saga books, I have read through these books so fast and have enjoyed every minute of them. I definitely prefer the books to the films as she talks about things that don't happen in the films. When ever I have finished one of these books I would have to go and get the next one straight away. Definitely a favourite of the month.
My last non beauty favourite of the month has been a bag, more specifically the DKNY Collegiate Logo Backpack. I got this backpack with my Christmas money and have loved it ever since I got it. I decided not to use it for college but it is not too big or too small for everyday use.
