How I conceal my dark circles

Wouldn't you love to live in a world where you can wake up and look perfect? I know I would. Dark circles can occur for a many number of reasons. But where there are imperfections there is makeup.
I suffer from really bad undereye circles as you can see:

But lucky for me there's makeup so no one has to know :) Here's how I conceal them:

1.First I like to apply an eye cream to give a good base for my concealer. I love using boots vitamin e eye cream it applies easily and absorbs well into my skin.

2.Next I dot on MAC's select moisturecover concealer. I like using a cool toned concealer as it helps to cancel out the blue circles.

I find when using my finger to blend in this concealer, my finger absorbs some of the concealer so I end up using more of it. I find that I need less concealer when using a synthetic bristled brush so much prefer a brush!

4. Now this concealer does need setting as it will literally start creasing as soon as you've applied it. But I've overcome this problem by using Maybelline dream matte powder. This is a soft, finely milled powder and helps to stop the concealer creasing. I love it!! The shade I have is golden beige, which is lighter than my skin tone, has a nice brightening effect to the under eye area.

And there you go as you can see this hasn't completely eradicated the circles but its definately improved their appearance :)

Barry M nail paint review

I love bright nail polishes. Much easier to have colourful nails then wearing bright eye makeup or clothes which can become too much. They just allow you to have a nice pop of colour :)

So when I spotted these beauties in Superdrug on a 2 for £5 I snapped them up.
The first shade is lemon ice cream which is a lovely pastel shade of yellow.

The only downside to this polish is that it needs 3 coats to get an opaque coverage and needs to be applied carefully as it can go streaky.

The next shade is called Mint Green, which describes the shade perfectly.
This was much easier to apply, only needed two coats but again need to be careful to avoid annoying streaky marks.

Barry M nail paints are definitely hit and miss. I've tried some that only require one coat to give a completely opaque coverage and ones just like the above that require a little extra effort. But overall love the colour selection and the price.

Sales haul :)

OMG how amazing are sales!! Picked up some serious bargains but definitely had to restrain myself from spending too much. So here's what I got:

This necklace is from Miss Selfridge and absolute bargain at only £1.80 gotta love sales and student discount !!

Another necklace this time from Wallis. I just love the dangly charms so cute, this was £2.70.

I loved this bag from the minute I saw it, the colour, the detailing and when I saw the price I knew I had to have it :) only £6.30 from Miss Selfridge.

And of course I got shoes. These gladiator sandals are both from Next. Trying to find shoes in Next was an absolute nightmare, the shoes were literally in piles on the shelves. It was like trying to dig for treasure but I'm happy with what I found :)

Love the slogans on these socks thought they were quite funny and definitely can't go wrong for £2.

So thats all for my haul. Hope you guys found some bargains too :)
