PHOTO Shoot FOR MY PORTFOLIO
Hello my lovelies,
With Uni being round the corner I thought it’s time I best shape up my act and get my portfolio up-to-date! In order to this, I had a mini photo shoot (in my own home which was pretty cool) and I thought I’d share with you some of the prints that didn’t make it in, but as I may of mentioned before its always good to look at the positives and negatives in all life situations!

What is the Significance of Makeup to you?

‘A woman without paint, is like food without salt’ -Plautus

Appearance plays a sickening role in society at present; and let’s face it people play up to it whether that be by buying a fancy new care or bleaching their skin. My question for you today is what is the significance of makeup to you?

10 Project Pan ♥


10 Project pan Mid August-October

With Christmas coming up I thought I would be a wise idea to cut down on the amount of junk in my room that, I never use! The only true junk I have is beauty related items purely because they just sit there and get dusty. I filmed a counterpart video to this post, so if you want to check it out you can!

Asha & I at our last festival affair


What do you order at Starbucks?
I don’t like to drink in public because the idea of having to use a public toilet scares me, genuine problem of mine *Awkward*, but when I do it’s always a normal hot chocolate or a white hot chocolate with no fancy bits (I can’t stand crème). Food wise, I always get a blueberry cheese cake slice without fail every time I go.


What’s the one thing you can’t love without in your closet?
I think everyone who has ever seen me would know this answer, my Steve Madden faux fur black coat. I never ever go out without it, unless it’s scorching outside & I have pathetic circulation so most times I take it with me ‘just in case’.


What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?

Natural Beauty Benefits (#1)

Natural Beauty Benefits

 



This months natural beauty benefits is *Drum roll* Beauty benefits of Avocado. Avocado is a fruit natively grown in Mexico. I think they are quite an acquired taste, I love them now but when I was younger & someone put it in my salad I almost died (quite dramatically), alongside my mortified family members.

Avocado on the whole is very replenishing and because it’s natural there is hardly any space to go wrong. I’m going to share will you a couple ways you can use avocado to enrich you beauty regime.

Mac● Starter Kit


Mac: Starter Kit

When I first started to reap the benefits of makeup, it was really a quantity over quality affair, but as I’ve aged through these treacherous 17 years of human life, I’ve began to realise quality is heap more important. In all aspects to, for example your can not go and eat any baked beans, it has to be Heinz…right?
Although I don’t go and splurge on make, I thought to help you and I save some pennies, I’d come up with a universal MAC Starter Kit, for beginners that want to delve into this brand.

 Bases
(Foundations, Concealer & Primer)

Foundation:
There are two foundations, in which I’m going to recommend as basic day to day wear; M.A.C Face and body Foundation and M.A.C Studio Fix Fluid, which are kind of two extreme opposites.

Personally, I sway more towards the Studio Fix, as it has a medium coverage which is buildable, but breathable! Not only this, but the colour range is epic alongside it’s staying power. I have ultimate combination skin and as long as I set it probably, it works wonders!

Clear boots
are off this world, I love them! The best thing is they are only around £30 on eBay…these would be in my closet right now if it wasn’t for the fact I don’t have an PayPal account yet *sad times*. I originally decided to ignore my strong feels for these booties, and go about my online browsing addiction…and then Lauren Rose made a Lookbook, and I cracked like humpty.

I’ve been dying to find a standard black trench coat; I don’t know why this is turning into mission impossible!

Opening Post

 
 

This is my official blog opening post, lets be honest it’s slightly pointless, but I thought I would quickly introduce myself & my blog to you. So I typed into my old pal Google, introductory questions and some questions, ironically popped up, so I thought I’ve give them a bash and maybe you can get to know me & what my blog is going to be about.


Ready or not, let’s play…get to know the weirdo…

What’s your name, age & where do you come from?
My name is Iyana-Nikita *ironically* some double barrelled fun there, it’s like a tongue twister, no one ever seems to get it right first strive. I’m 16 and I’m going to be the grand old age of 17 in just 4 days! Finally then I’m from good’ old England, & I love the weather.
