Basic bitch tries glossy eye look cover

Hey everyone, I know it’s been a while since I’ve been on here due to everything going on: from lockdown and uni being a shambles (both generally and as a result of corona, haha) to laptop charger troubles, it’s sure been a ride. But you’ll (maybe) be pleased to know that I’m back on here now, ready to rediscover my love for blogging and being creative, so expect more tik toks, insta posts and blog posts from me in the weeks to come to try and keep you (and myself) entertained. I had a bit of spare time on my hands on Monday this week, so I decided to finally fulfill my basic bitch tries dream of testing out a glossy eye look from back when they used to be super popular (I’m late to the party, as always, I know). Keep reading to find out how I got on, and if you fancy reading more basic bitch tries posts for a good laugh at my expense, I got you! Continue reading

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).

50917056_2122730897821451_1934959440604168192_n.jpg

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. Keep reading to find out how I got on!

So I had this on my list for a while and i wasn’t sure what to expect going into it; I actually ended up doing the look before I saw the film, and it turns out the poster I was inspired by was actually from the 2018 adaptation instead of the original (oops). So to make it clear I’ll be reviewing the 1977 film, but the look is inspired by the 2018 poster… anyway, keep reading to see what I thought of the film and also to see the look I came up with.

I’m having a lot of fun doing these, and Silent Hill is one of my favourite movies that I’ve wanted to do a look inspired by for a while now, so I enjoyed writing this a lot. I’m also bringing you a post about the real-life inspiration behind Silent Hill tomorrow on my spooky blog so look out for that! (It’s super creepy). Anyway, let’s get onto the look and review!  Continue reading

So I was just sat killing some time before Hannah arrived (check out this post to see what we got up to when she visited) and I decided mid-afternoon that I was gonna watch a horror movie so I popped my October movie list into a random number generator and strapped in to watch a horror comedy. I sometimes don’t like horror comedy so this was a bit risky – keep reading to find out what I thought of the film, and to see the eye look I created based on its cover!  Continue reading

Basic Bitch Tries…Valentine’s Heart Eye Look (Sad Clown Fail) | Ep3

28052630_1022797301201557_1250912056_n.jpg

I know this is going up a lil late but this is not by any means a date night tutorial haha. I wasn’t having the best of days on Tuesday and I was feeling a bit down so I thought why not give one of those super pretty Valentine’s heart eye looks that are going around on Instagram a shot (the inspo I used from above was sophdoesnails). I had the lowest expectations ever and I just wanted to do something a bit more fun than sit around feeling sorry for myself, so I revived this series and I’m very excited to come back to it. Suffice to say I am no makeup artist, and that is reflected here, so if you want a good laugh, keep on reading to see what I ended up with! (The two palettes I’ll be using in this ‘tutorial’ are the ABH Modern Renaissance palette and the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner palette, and the ABH Moonchild Glow Kit also makes a feature).
