To thank you all for your amazing support over the short time I have been blogging, tweeting, youtubeing, facebooking and instagramming... (ENOUGH!) I have decided to host a teeny tiny little giveaway.

I shall be giving away my most favourite MAC Cosmetics eye shadow of all time. It is a beautiful golden brown that I try not to apply to my lids every, single day.

All you have to do to win is be a follower, twollower, subscriber and liker of all of my social media sites and comment on my YouTube giveaway video (seen below!)

i have provided you with all the links, so it could not be easier.


Once again, thanks you for so much for all your support- it would all mean nothing if the only one watching was me. It is a small gesture, but one that I think fits me perfectly.. Plus I am sure I can drop some nice little extra bits in too.

The comp is open internationally, and a winner shall be selected by on Wednesday 5th December at midnight GMT.

Good luck... God Speed. :)

My Current Foundation Routine and YouTube Demo!

I cannot go without foundation or some sort of base... unless I am 100% not leaving the house.

This never used to be the case, but because after my student life finished, and grown up LizFish1 emerged, I have gotten used to seeing myself 'fully faced' the majority of the time. 

Now, full face does not mean full coverage, cakey base make up, so please enjoy my glowing, natural looking foundation routine video. Here I aim to show you how I go from being dark eyed, blotchy and pink, to smooth, even toned, natural looking, polished skin.

All tools and products used are listed after the vid in order of use!

Maybelline FITme Foundation- shade 315
MAC Strobe Lotion
Collection 2000 Concealer- 2 light
Make Up Forever HD Powder
MAC Powder Blush- Harmony
MAC Powder Blush- X Rocks
MAC Cream Colour Base- Pearl
Urban Decay setting spray- De- Slick

All brushes are Real Techniques because they are affordable, synthetic and amazing.

I don't even have to mention the fact that they are a global cosmetics company, born out of the phenomenon that is the YouTube community. Well I just did...

These Past Seven Days (12)

Okay... So the pics are actually from the past 14 days. I've been slacking on the social media front and for that I apologise. I did post a video on YouTube this week on my return from Vancouver... So if you are interested in seeing that, you can find it embedded in the post below.

This week I got back into the swing of things at work, in the gym and also recorded a major beauty haul, which I shall upload in the next couple if says. This weekend me and the Boyf travelled down to the Isle of Wight to see his in laws. The minute I get a whiff of the sea air I relax- I find being by the water so calming, I think this is why I love Olhos de Agua, Vancouver and the IOW so much.

Enjoy the pics kids, check you later.

OOTD: Tweed, Leather and Burgundy

Thank you all for bearing through my absence on social media for the past couple of weeks, I spent an amazing ten days with my family in the beautiful city of Vancouver. I spent the majority of my time shopping (hauls to come!), eating out, eating in, eating all the time.....

Whilst I was over there, I met up with fellow blogger Emilie Clarke! We had a fantastic day catching up over Starbucks, shopping downtown and lunching at Milestones. We also both got our hands on a Chanel-Esque beauty of a top from Zara. Emilie did record a Vlog and a subsequent OOTD of how she styled her top and so I have done likewise. Emilie chose to pair her T with jeans, heels and hoops for a semi-casual glam look and I dressed mine for the work place.
