Autumn Makeup Look & Curly Hair

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a super weekend, sadly the rain is here and so I thought I would cheer it up with a post about my new makeup look and my curly Halo Hair extensions.
Following on from my Autumn FOTD I did last week I had another browse through my makeup and found a lovely smokey grey eye shadow by Mac called Concrete and used this to create my look. I've worn this look 3 times now and LOVE LOVE it.


I was kindly sent some products from the new Vivo range which are great quality, I was sent the Liquid eyeliner which I'm wearing and their foundation which I also have on. I've been using up my sample of Estee Lauder DoubleWear Light which I really like. However the past couple days I've been testing out the Vivo foundation which I have to say is very similar. So today I have on the Vivo foundation on my left side and the Estee Lauder DW Light on the right hand side. Can you tell a difference?? The only slight difference is the Vivo foundation is slightly creamier but they both go on the skin and blend in the same. The Vivo foundation retails at £2.59 whilst Estee Lauder DW Light retails at £26.50 a big difference right?

So if you're a fan of Estee Lauder DoubleWear Light foundation I recommend you give the Vivo foundation a try. I'm the lightest shade in DW Light shade 1 I think it is and the Vivo one is shade 2 Honey Beige.

These are products I used to create my smokey Autumn makeup look, please feel free to ask away if you have any questions about them or how I used them.

As you can see I'm also loving my curly Halo extensions, I did a video tutorial on how to curl your Halo Extensions so check it out below. I've been wearing my curls up in a tight hair band and then letting my curls cascade down my back which I think looks so pretty.

 This is the special Hot Wand which makes curls come true! You can read a review here.
