My name is Mikayla! I'm a 22 year old University Graduate with a passion for all things beauty. I stumbled into the online beauty community a year ago and have been obsessed with youtube videos and blogs ever since. After watching hundreds of videos over the past year I figured it was about time I joined the community and posted my own thoughts in my own little space. I'm also recently graduated, unemployed and headed for college in September.

I really enjoy all things beauty, and I really like telling my friends what I think about products so writing them down just felt natural. To me, make up isn't something that you wear to make yourself look prettier, it's something you do on yourself for yourself. It has the power to give you strength to tackle a rough day, the courage to find your inner confidence and sparkle like every girl is meant too.

Other than beauty, I love fashion. Beauty and Fashion are the keys to my heart, along with a great deal. I'm all about a decent deal, and budget shopping is my favourite.

I can't wait to start this journey with the internet and all of you!

NYX Love in Rio

Tuesday, 2 December 2014

I have loved NYX since my first IMATS a couple years ago, the brand as a whole is reasonably priced for a drugstore brand but features amazing quality products. I absolutely adore the packaging on many of their products and the goods inside rarely disappoint. 

I have two of their Love in Rio Trio's and I keep both of them in my room in my "I use you all the time" drawer. They are great for on the go or a quick eye look because the colours that they contain are versatile and build-able but also look really natural at least the Love in Rio ones do! 

To create this look I used: 
Base: Maybelline Colour Tattoo Metal in Barely Branded 
Crease: NYX Meet Me at the Copa far left (light brown)
Deeper crease: NYX Meet Me at the Copa left (blue/grey)
Outer V: NYX Bikini Bottom far right (dark brown)
Inner Corner: NYX Bikini Bottom right (gold)
Eyeliner: Estee Lauder Pure Colour Shadow Paint Bold Cobalt 

Not pictured: 
Concealer: Flower liquid concealer light 
Powder: Rimmel Stay Matte Transparent
Eyebrows: Milani Brow Fix Blonde 
Mascara: Too Faced Better Than Sex and Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara
