Monthly Faves | February!

Aloha Sprinklerinos!

Today I’m going to be talking to you about my monthly favourites for February! I’m so sorry it’s late! Make sure you like, comment and follow and i hope you enjoyyy!


Makeup:

Garnier Micellar Water Makeup Remover
This is such a gentle, soothing remover, and I’ve only just got back into using it!

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer
I’ve owned this for around 3 weeks prior to using it, and had forgotten about it, until i searched through my makeup bag and decided to give it a go. Well, I’m never going back! It has a creamy formula and is reasonably priced too!

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
My friend Sparkles absolutely LOVES this mascara, so I decided to try it. Wow. I was blown away! This makes your lashes almost look like they’re false ones, and after trying so many different mascaras, I always come back to this one. It’s really affordable and lasts for a long time.

NYX Butter Gloss in “Creme Brulee”
This is a beautiful pale pink nude that feels so comfortable on the lips; it’s not too sticky or anything, and lasts a decent amount of time!


Other:

Burgundy Sugg Life Hoodie
I purchased this around 2 weeks ago and I’m in love! It’s so comfy and I liveeee in it

Dove Spray Deodorant
This is such a random thing but I’m in love with the smell and it does its job so win-win!


That’s all from me, I hope you enjoyed and I’ll see you next time!

Makeup 101 | Episode 1 | Brushes

Aloha Sprinklerinos!

So, I’m going to try to start/continue this series about makeup! I’ll be uploading these every other Wednesday and this week will be about brushes! I hope you enjoy and make sure you like and follow if you do!


Face:

There are many different brushes/tools you can use for your face, and I’m going to talk you through them…

Beauty Blender
These are egg-shaped sponges used for foundation for even coverage. You can either use it damp (lighter application) or dry (heavier application).

Flat Foundation Brush
This can also be used for foundation and is good for problem areas and large pores. Use from the centre of the face in outward, sweeping motion for a flawless finish.

Concealer Brush
This is like a smaller version of the flat foundation brush (above) and can be used to blend concealer under your eyes and cover blemishes.

Powder Brush
Use this to diffuse loose powders so it doesn’t look cakey and wont smudge foundation. Also great for bronzing.

Angled Blush Brush
Swirl the bristles on the apples of your cheeks to add a healthy glow. Can also be used to contour below your cheekbones and jawline.

Kabuki Brush
Sweep bronzer along your temple and your hairline, under your cheekbone, and jawline in a 3 shape for an effortless, summery glow.

Fan Brush
Dust away any eyeshadow fallout or use to highlight your cheekbones.

Eyes:

There are many different brushes you can use to do eye makeup, and here they are…

Large Shadow Brush
Use this to apply a base colour over the entire lid and to pack on pigment.

Precision Shadow Brush
Use this for applying shadow under the eyes and use for cut crease looks

Fluffy Blending Brush
Use to soften/blend shadows. Great for smokey eye looks.

Smudger Brush
Line your lashes with a kohl liner, then sweep this over the liner for a smokey look.

Angled Eyeliner Brush
Dip in cream or gel liner, or an eyeshadow. Hold so the bristles are flush to your lashline and drag from the inside corner to the outer corner.

Lash/Brow Comb/Brush
Use the comb to gently separate clumpy lashes or smooth messy brows. Use the brush in an upwards motion on your brows to tame then, and diffuse harsh colour.

Lashes:

These are all the different types of mascara wands…

  1. Oversized — Use for maximum volumelashes
  2. Cone Taper — Use for winged outer lashes
  3. Curved — Use for a fanned out curl
  4. Balled tip — Use for detailed corners
  5. Micro Wand — Use for bottom lashes and for a natural look
  6. Rubber Shorty — Use for defined length
  7. Flat Comb — Use for separated and dark lashes

Caring for your brushes:

You should wash your beauty tools regularly.”Brushes that are used around the eyes should be cleaned at least twice a month, and all others can be washed once a month.

The best method for cleaning your brushes requires only water and a gentle soap or brush cleanser – here’s how to do it:

  1. Wet the bristles with lukewarm water
  2. Place a drop of brush cleanser or soap in the palm of your hand
  3. Gently swirl the bristles in your hand
  4. Rinse the bristles
  5. Squeeze out the excess moisture with a towel
  6. Reshape the brush head
  7. Let the brushes dry with the bristles hanging over a counter.

Uploads!

Aloha Sprinklerinos!

I wanted to have a quick chat today. I started my blog on the last week of school before half term: I wasn’t that busy and I had quite a bit of free time. I decided to start uploading daily, which I could keep up throughout half term. However, now that I’ve started back at school, I realise it may not be that easy. So I’ve decided to not have a certain schedule for when I upload (apart from my makeup 101 and Fridays) so I don’t put too much pressure on myself. This blog has helped so much with daily life and I don’t want to stop, so I found this is a more stress-free way to do it!

Thank you so much and I’ll see you next time!

My Favourite Songs!

Aloha Sprinklerinos!

Im so sorry I haven’t uploaded over the weekend, I’ve been rushed off my feet! I also need to tell you a couple of things: I’ve decided to stop doing the weekly, as I didn’t enjoy it as much as my other posts. Also, on Friday I didn’t do ‘Fashion Friday!’ I had scheduled my posts for that week and completely forgot about it, but this week it’s back with an outfit diary!

Ok, so onto today’s post, I’m going to be talking to you about my some of my favourite songs at the moment! I hope you all enjoy and make sure you like, comment and follow!


First up is ‘Rewrite the Stars’ by Zac Efron and Zendaya. This is a song from the hit movie ‘The Greatest Showman’, I’m yet to see this film but I’m so excited for when I do, and I completely love this song!

Another song I’ve been loving is ‘Friends’ by Anne Marie and Marshmello. This song  is so catchy and I’m always playing it!

Recently, I’ve been listening to a lot of the High School Musical songs. (Lame, I know 😂) Although My favourites have got to be ‘Gotta go my own way’ by Vanessa Hudgens (2nd film), ‘Breaking free’ by Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens (1st film) and ‘Scream’ by Zac Efron (3rd film). I’ve got back into these songs and I really want to watch the film again!


That’s all from me today, I hope you enjoyed and I’ll see you next time!

My Morning Routine!

Aloha Sprinklerinos!

Today I’m going to talk to you about my morning routine! It’s going to be my weekday routine as my weekend one varies. I hope you enjoy, and if you do make sure to give a like and follow!


I wake up at 6am, and *try* not to snooze too many times, it’s usually about twice. I then get in the shower. The products I use, in order, are: my Freederm exfoliating face wash, Head and Shoulders 2in1 Itchy Scalp Shampoo and Conditioner, and if my hair feels/looks dull, I’ll use L’Oreal Paris Elvive Nutri-Gloss Conditioner.  I love all of these products, especially the smell of the haircare products. Once I’m out of the shower, I wrap my hair into a turban and put my Reindeer Onesie on from Next.

Once I’ve done that, I like to cleanse my face using the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gelée Milk Cleanser. To use this, I put one pump onto a cotton pad and rub it together, then swipe gently around my face. I love the smell of this and it makes my skin feel really smooth and hydrated. I then use a spot treatment on my face, it’s usually Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Treatment Cream. This cream really works for  my face, and drys out my spots quickly, but it won’t dry the rest of my skin. I then use Neutrogena Visibly Clear Spot Proofing Moisturiser. This is so refreshing and cooling and I use it day and night!

I’ll usually go and make a Costa latte in my coffee machine now so my hair can dry. When I’ve finished that, I go and dry my hair using my Babyliss Ombre Hairdryer. I love this because it has 2 different speeds and 4 heat settings, including a cold option. My hair usually takes around 20 minutes to dry, and doesn’t need straightening.

I now style my hair. I usually do a half up-half down style as I’m growing my fringe out.


Thank you all for reading! I hope you enjoyed this post and I’ll see you next time!

Stationery!!

Aloha Sprinklerinos!

I LOVE stationery. Like, I obsess over it. So,I thought I’d write about it. If you enjoy make sure to like and follow and comment any ideas you have for future posts!


I first want to talk about my stationery wishlist. I’ll try and link everything as well.

First up is this Marble Dotted Notebook. I started bullet journaling about a month ago, and it lasted a week (oopsie…). However, if I had this notebook, I would use it so much just because it’s so pretty! Another thing on my wishlist are these Zebra Midliners. They have amazing reviews and look soooooo pretty. Also included in my wishlist is this 12 Pack of Multi-coloured Washi Tape. I love the variety of colours and uses, you could literally use it for anything!! The last thing on my wishlist is these Stabilo Fineliners. They have every colour imaginable and, looking at the reviews, they last forever!


Now, moving on to the stationery I own and love. First up is my 6 Stabilo Pastel Highlighters. I use these in all my school books and it makes them look soooo pretty. The ink flows really nicely too. Next up is my 5 pack of Zoella’s ‘Write on Point’ pencils. I also use this at school and I think they look so nice and they are easy to use. They don’t break easily, which is a must have! Finally, I love my trusty Pukka Pad a4 project book. I love how it has moveable dividers and I use it for everything! (See the featured photo for all of these things)


That’s all from me today, thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed it! See you next time!

Rose Gold Nail Tutorial!

Aloha Sprinklerinos!

So today I’m going to talk you through my latest nail look – rose gold! I hope you enjoy and if you do, make sure to like, comment and follow!


Products I used:


I first folded a cotton pad in half and put some nail polish remover on it. I then lightly rubbed it on my nails to get any old, chipped polish off.


Then, I covered the nail in cuticle cream and leave for 5-10 minutes. This is because nail polish remover can dry your nails, which causes cracks and peeling.

Next, I filed my nails to remove any sharp edges. Only move the file gently and in one direction to stop breakages. I use a glass file as it can lessen damage to your nails. As you can see, my index nail broke because it was too weak. I’ve bitten my nails all my life and I’ve only just stopped, so I’m working on strengthening my nails.

Now, starting at the base of the nail, sweep in an upwards motion until you get to the tip of your nail. Then do the same on either side until your whole nail is covered. Then repeat on your other nails.

I suggest leaving this to dry for around 45 minutes, so it’s completely dry. I only needed one coat of polish but if you need another, repeat the above step. I then used the same technique to apply a gel topcoat to seal the nail. I left this to dry for 90 minutes as this takes longer.

Here is the finished product!
