Emotions Series: Heartbreak

The Heartbroken Makeup

A lot of you have probably noticed this last week that my blog has been having a few issues, I’m trying to get them fixed as soon as possible, but I think I should probably give you a little heads up that it might crash a few times more over the next few weeks while I start making a few changes/improvements.

For the second look in my Emotions series I wanted to do Heartbreak. The way I imagined it, or rather the way it’s felt for me, is as though your heart has cracked open like glass. I wanted to take it a little bit further and have the cracks spread up from the heart to the eyes.

Breaking My Heart Only Love Can Hurt Like This

At some point I’m going to do Grief for this series too, and I think it’s going to end up being very similar to this look, but even more extreme. Less of a crack in the surface and more like open heart surgery.

I’ve taken a bit of a while to upload this video, but I guess it’s better late than never. In think in future I might just upload tutorials like this on my blog as posts instead of videos, I feel like they’re a little too simple to be made into videos. They could just as easily be followed as picture tutorials on my blog. I’m not sure, what do you guys think? More blog tutorials or more video tutorials?

Emotions Series: Exhaustion

Emotions Series Exhaustion

Finally, the series I’ve been talking about for so long. Like most of my series, this one has been tossed around my head for a while till I finally felt like I had enough ideas collected for it. The scope for this series is huge! So many emotions and makeup looks to explore! Some of them will be more simple, like this one, and some of them – like joy – will be explosions of glitter and rhistestones.

So far I have a long list of emotions planned. Fear, apathy, Joy, depression, hope, the list is potentially endless. Plus I have several photography ideas for them that I can’t wait to try out! Not to mention several new artist who have allowed me to use their music in future videos which include Kerli and Felicity. If you have any suggestions for new emotions for this series feel free to leave them in the comments, the more complicated the better!

Balance Me Body Lotion

Balance Me Body Cream

When it comes to my skin care routine it’s pretty much sorted out now. I’ll dabble around with new products here and there, but I know the basic products that always work for me. Body care is another matter. I’m probably the laziest person on earth for that. Either I forget or I just can’t be bothered, which is something I really want improve on. Especially now that summer is coming up and I’d really like to start wearing a few midi dresses.

Balance Me Cream Swatch

A few months ago I was sent this cream to try out, and although it took me a while to get around to using it, once I did it was quite easy to remember to include it in my skin care. The smell is lovely!  A citrus-y orange blossom smell, and the texture of the cream is quite interesting. It’s light and creamy and leaves an interesting silicone-y finish on the skin. For that reason I prefer to use it on my legs rather than my hands, especially if I’m planning to draw anything that day. The last thing I want are gummy-textured fingers.

Basics: £12.50 • 300 ml • 6 month shelf life • Cruelty Free 

While it obviously works as a moisturiser it’s not the thickest cream, and if you suffer from very dry skin then this is isn’t going to be moisturising enough for you. I’d describe this cream as perfect for people with normal to very oily skin. Is it an oh-my-gosh-best-cream-of-all-time product? No, it is not. But if you’re into well made and nicely scented creams I think you’ll enjoy trying this one out.
