Hey everyone, so this week’s post is another basic bitch tries, as I’m feeling inspired to try things and make my exam period a little less static; I thought I’d go back to my roots and pop on a makeup-themed one as last week’s was one of my new endeavours: basic bitch tries pinterest recipes. And boy, was this a ride. If you know me irl or if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that eyeliner is one of my biggest challenges, and this time was no exception. Keep reading to find out how I got on copying this gorgeous look by @aycarter on Instagram… (In this ‘tutorial’, if you can even call it that haha, I’ll be using my Revolution Brights Palette, my Kat Von D Fetish palette, and my Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick in Unicorn Blood, all of which I’ve linked my reviews for if you fancy a read).

I had this idea whilst sat scrolling through pinterest in class for the umpteenth time and simultaneously thinking about my basic bitch tries series – in my opinion it’s the perfect combination. I get an excuse to try pinterest recipes for content; you get recipe inspo and a (very high) chance to see me fail – what more could you want? I love to cook and I just thought it would be a really interesting idea; I thought I’d kick things off with this recipe for Brazilian Chickpeas & Rice by Emma’s Little Kitchen.

After running out of a lot of my favourites in my morning and night skincare routine posts, I decided to head on back to bodycare/ Primor to seek out some cheaper favourites because the Superdrug Naturally Radiant range wasn’t on offer when I went in (sad reacts only), but I still wanted to keep up with my skincare. I was pleasantly surprised to find a lot more additions to the Beauty Formulas range so of course I bought a bunch of those. Will these be my new staples? Keep reading to find out how and when I use them and how I got on with them!
