Sephora Haul

I love buying new make up and I recently received my new order from Sephora. Having relatives that live there is a massive plus as it meant I could order the products I wanted without having to worry about the ridiculous shipping and customs fees.

One of my personal favorite products is the Sephora Collection 24 hour waterproof fine liner which I discovered when I went to Paris last summer. I am not a huge fan eye liner, however as it's really thin it just adds a very subtle effect to your eyes. It costs around £10.78 which isn't that bad in my opinion as it lasts for a long time - I still haven't run out and it's been over a year!

After hearing and reading all the great reviews on the Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick I really wanted to try it out for myself. The packaging is super cute and the casing itself is so nice! The product is easy to apply, blend in and has really good coverage. They also have amazing contouring/bronzing palettes which my sister and I are obsessed with. I already have the Ambient Lighting Edit 2015 Holiday Limited Edition (no longer sold) and loved the shade 'luminous bronze light' so I bought it as a single shade. It's very pigmented so you don't need to use a lot and easy to build up. As Hourglass is a high end brand the prices are going to be higher, this stick foundation was  $46 which is £35.43 and the lightning bronzer was £38.51. Personally I do both products are worth the cost.

BECCA Cosmetics is know for their amazing Champagne Pop highlighter, so naturally I was inclined to buy it. Then I came across the Shimmering Skin Perfector Slimlight. This is basically the Champagne Pop highlighter in a wand form that is for precision highlighting to help achieve the iconic BECCA glow. I like to combine different tones of highlighters, so I used the wand and then used my Laura Mercier Face Illuminator Powder on top to add more a more pink tone. 

My favorite part of doing my makeup has to be LIPS. I love wearing lip liner colours as matte lip stick shades. I'm a huge fan of nudes and pinky/brown liners. I bought the Make Up For Ever Aqua lip liner in 'medium natural beige.' It has a really nice creamy consistency and is heavily pigmented.

I have now also finally invested in the Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Setting Spray. I'm so excited to start using this and will let you know what I think about it soon!

Get To Know Me


I'm Zayna. I am currently taking my A Levels which are Business, Geography, Economics and want to study Business Management at university. I love all things to do with fashion, beauty and especially shopping. Anyone who knows me will know I am the biggest spender on shoes and handbags!

My hobbies include going out with my friends, getting my nails done and obviously going shopping. I spend a lot of time on Instagram, what was a quick five minute check will turn into over an hour of scrolling through pictures. I have two younger sisters, one who is my beautiful personal photographer (you will often see her tagged in my pictures on Instagram) and the other is the brains of the family. She wants to go to MIT and has the biggest makeup collection I've ever seen.

I'm going to be blogging about all things fashion, beauty and my life, such as tips, advice and how I like to do things. I hope you enjoy reading!

Love Zayna x
