My Top Red Lip Colours That Are Perfect For Christmas

Wednesday, 23 December 2015

Red lips is the most synonymous of makeup trends for the festive period. I wore a red lip last year for Christmas Day and I had never felt more Christmassey or as glamorous on Christmas Day in my life. I wore winged liner and a red lip and I loved it. This year, I have so many red lip products to choose from and I thought that I share with you some of my favourites that will be contenders for Christmas Day. 

Winterize Your Beauty

Monday, 21 December 2015

With the winter months comes a change in temperature, a change in fashion (woollies and layers galore), a change in eating habits (all the hot food, please!), and also a change in your makeup routine. This winter is only my second winter where I've been interested in makeup. Last year, I don't believe I had a true grasp of what I wanted out of my makeup or really had any clue about what I was doing. This year, I think I have a better idea and have begun to be more confident with my makeup, makeup choices and my beauty routine and how I would 'winterize' it. 

TUTORIAL || Star Wars The Light Side 'The Mystic' x Pat McGrath

Friday, 18 December 2015

Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens is out in the cinemas and I have yet to see it. It has been out for far too long without me watching it. I'm hoping to see it very soon, as in, this weekend. If I don't, I will scream. In the mean time, here is a tutorial inspired by Star Wars. It is Fandom Friday after-all. I did promise last week that I would be doing a Light Side makeup look from the Covergirl/Max Factor x Pat McGrath campaign. Here it is...

One Brand Makeup // L'Oreal

Wednesday, 16 December 2015

For today's makeup tutorial, I decided to give myself a challenge. I challenged myself to only do my makeup using one brand. I chose L'Oreal because I had pretty much everything I would need for it. I had foundations, concealers, powders, eyeshadows, mascaras and lip products from the brand. Their mascaras comprise most of my mascara collection now that I think about it. I needed to do my makeup anyway as I was going to the dentist (fun times) so it's a day-time appropriate look with a nude lip because I didn't want the dentist to ruin my lips with the utensils. I will probably do a night-time look in the future if anyone is interested in that. 

My Top 10 Christmas Films

Sunday, 13 December 2015

I'm usually not the most Christmassy of people. I used to be when I was little but when I got older and it became a kind of inclusion and exclusion game at school, my interest dwindled. Now, we don't decorate until the week of Christmas. I don't count-down the sleeps until Christmas Day (but I am counting down to Star Wars). I don't go to Christmas parties. But I do love the food, the craic, the wine and the movies that will be shown on TV. In recent years, television progamming has been a bit rubbish. I used to highlight the TV guide with everything that I wanted to watch - all the movies and the TV Christmas specials, especially the Strictly Come Dancing special. There are a number of films that get me into the Festive Season. So, in alphabetical order....

TUTORIAL || Star Wars The Dark Apprentice x Pat McGrath Makeup

Friday, 11 December 2015

Star Wars VII is out next week. I repeat Star Wars is out next week. Nevermind Christmas. This movie has been what my December has been about and what I've been counting down my sleeps towards. I cannot contain my excitement about this movie. It is the fourth Star Wars movie to be made in my lifetime (and I hope not the last) and this makes me stupidly excited because it has the original cast in it. How can you not love that? Han and Leia! Dear lawd, Han and Leia! Han and Leia were my first ship before I even knew what a ship was. Before the word was even used for that and was just a fancy boat! They were my first favourite couple basically.

How I Remove My Makeup

Wednesday, 9 December 2015

I've wanted to share this for a while now but only got around to it now. This is a quick video on how I take my makeup off after I've filmed a tutorial or at the end of the day. It's been effective at removing the most dramatic of looks or the most subtle with just four products. 

I've been using the Deliplus remover since April - having repurchased it several times since. I hope that I can get more when I'm in Barcelona in June. I doubt though that I can make my last bottle last that long. The Aveeno lotion has been incredible to my skin. Every now and then my skin breaks out in dry patches, particularly around and on my eyelids. I picked this lotion up when I last saw the signs and I haven't had an outbreak since. It's not what you'd call a face moisturiser but that's what I use it for. 

It's a very quick process and that's what I love about it. 

November Favourites 2015

Monday, 7 December 2015

Where did November go? For real. Where did it go? It feels like yesterday I was at the SSE Arena for Belfast Film and Comic Con at Hallowe'en and now it's now rolling onto Christmas season. What the eff?! Christmas season. Not ready. Not ready at all. Nevertheless, a few things have made this month memorable for me so let's get into it. 

200th BLOG POST || Jane Seymour Inspired Christmas Makeup

Sunday, 6 December 2015

Guess what?! This post is my 200th blog post here at kazzified29 and simultaneously it is my 50th YouTube upload! How unreal is that? I cannot believe that I've conceived, constructed and photographed/filmed 200 posts and 50 videos. It doesn't seem like it. It feels like more. Haha. I'm joking. It feels like yesterday I posted my very first post and filmed my first YouTube video. Cliché, I know but there's no other way to possibly put it. Naturally, I wanted to celebrate and what better way to do so than with a Fandom Friday post? I know, I know -  it's Sunday. I did have a tutorial ready to go for Friday but I wasn't happy with it and so postponed it. Today's tutorial is for a makeup look inspired by Jane Seymour's makeup from the Mad Max: Fury film premiere in Cannes earlier in the year.
