Youtubers I Love To Watch For Makeup Tips ♥

Youtubers I Love To Watch For Makeup Tips ♥

Hi all and welcome back to my blog or if you are new then hi my name is Vinny.If you are already a follower then thanks but if not then pls follow via google friends connect or bloglovin as it means the world to me,and thanks to all my new followers too ♥♥

So hello all,you probably all know that I'm on Youtube and have been for 4 years next year and getting on for 10K subscribers and over 2.5 million views {yikes} gulp lol .
Never in a million gazillion years did i ever think i would reach so many subscribers and a totally mind blowing view count,or it is in my eyes as I'm just little old me.
I started my Youtube because of my anxiety for one and just for a hobby to be honest as Jamie my partner is a DJ and makes his own music and i didn't have a hobby as such.
I now love it and i think i eat sleep breathe makeup,my kids come first of course so i don't get chance to do or watch as much as I'd like but i thought i would share with you some of the people who i love to watch to gain any makeup tips and who are just my fave to watch for tutorials etc.

All images are sourced from Google


So firstly here is my youtube if you are not subscribed then i would love you to subscribe thanks,that's me above :) ♥

So these are in no particular order,they are just people who i love to watch for tips .....

So first up we have Sam and Nic Chapman from Pixiwoo and omg i love these ladies soooo much they are totally fantastic at what they do and both stunning beautiful ladies.Also they do some of my favourite makeup brushes which i use daily called Real techniques sold in Boots and Superdrug.So I'm sure you have heard of them but if not then please go and check them out as they do some amazing tutorials and tips and they are so calming to watch too ;) ♥

Next up is Wayne Goss or Gossmakeupartist on Youtube and he is just gorgeous and takes his job seriously.I love that he concentrated more for older women and not just teeny boppers.He gives the most amazing tips and tricks and i have tried many myself.
So again if you are not watching Wayne then you need to be as he is just a total gem and a joy to watch,breathe of fresh air and makes me smile always.

Next is Lisa Eldridge and to me Lisa is queen of hearts.
She is just fantastic i love her.if you have not heard of Lisa then where have you been?
but if you honestly haven't then please get your butt over to Youtube and subscribe for amazing tips tricks and tutorials.She is stunningly beautiful and amazingly talented .

Last on my list of faves,like i said these have no order but is totally Kandee Johnson as she is my little kandee crush,she is like Mary Poppins and practically perfect and every way.
I have watched her for years and omg guys not only is she talented at everyday makeup and looking stunning but she has pulled off some dramatic and amazing lookalikes.
You seriously need to check out her channel she has been Disney princess's,jack sparrow,barbie,Angelina Jolie,Kylie Jenner and now even Youtube Lookalikes...SO KANDEE IF YOU EVER READ THIS THEN PLEASE "DO ME DO ME"
total respect and talent for this little lady ♥

So anyway i thought i would just give you a taster of the 4 people who i watch most for makeup looks,that's when i have time that is with two kids and my own channel.

I am subscribed and watch hundreds of youtubers but i watch them all for different reasons,some for hauls some for sense of humour,some as they are close friends.So i would be here all day to list everyone but i try not to miss many video's from these guys.
Thanks for reading as always love and hugs

Urban Decay Naked Smoky Review & Swatches

Urban Decay Naked Smoky Review & Swatches


Hi all and welcome back to my blog or if you are new then hi my name is Vinny.If you are already a follower then thanks but if not then pls follow via google friends connect or bloglovin as it means the world to me,and thanks to all my new followers too ♥♥

So this is a review of the Urban Decay Naked Smoky which came out a while back but i have now had good chance to use.
As you can see by the photo above that my Urban Decay in Debenhams Southampton is fantastic and they do give me a lot of free products to trial and i must say everything i have tried i love.I already own Urban Decay lipsticks and they feel like luxury to own {i love them}
Naked skin bronze,highlight and blush looks beautiful too.


So now onto the actual palette which is the usual beautiful Urban Decay Naked palette,i own all the naked palettes and do love them as UD are my fave high end brand for eyeshadow :) this is £38.00 and available on the Debenhams website >>HERE<<.

But this is the 4th Urban Decay Naked and in my opinion is the worst of a great bunch.I really do love my others sooo much.I actually bought them all in order and they all had an edge and something different from no1 with warm tones to no2 with cool tones,then we had no3 with more subtle golden pink/rose gold tones.
But this one no4 {smoky} just really didn't float my boat.

Don't get me wrong i will still use it and i still love it,the colour and shadows are very pigmented.I really don't know but it was just all a bit samey and a bit yawn {boring} for me really.There was only really one decent crease transition colour and i like a few nice crease colours in a palette that have to be matte.These were all a bit merky and dark.
Obviously it's called the Smoky palette Vinny duh lol so they are going to be all dark smoky colours.Something just really didn't click with me.It was lovely but they need something really different from a Naked 5 next time as this is lacking in my opinion.

Here are the swatches with and without flash to give you an idea of the shimmer in different lights.
So above is with no flash
Then again above here is with flash.

Beautiful colours but just a bit meh and really not much you can do with them tbh.
The packaging though was amazing i love it.It feels like a very hard smooth plastic glass and comes with the usual stunning double ended brush.

I think over the years the brushes have got a lot better and never fail to please me ♥

These palettes will always be worth the price though and hold their money considering a single UD shadow is around £14 and then adding the brush on top of that which is going to be roughly £18 just for the brush.So all in all then yes it's totally worth every penny but out of the other 3 then this is my least fave.

But you can also pop into Debenhams and swatch this for yourself or tell me what you think by the swatches? do you own this or do you want to add to your collection.

Thanks always for reading,love and hugs Littlemissstyleguru aka Vinny ♥

I ♡ Makeup I Heart Chocolate Pink Fizz

I ♡ Makeup I Heart Chocolate Pink Fizz

Hi all and welcome back to my blog or if you are new then hi my name is Vinny.If you are already a follower then thanks but if not then pls follow via google friends connect or bloglovin as it means the world to me,and thanks to all my new followers too ♥♥

So as you can see this is the gorgeous new chocolate bar palette from Makeup revolution called Pink Fizz,such a beautiful name for a beautiful palette ♥

The packaging to this is just stunning,i mean who wouldn't want a pink choc bar shaped eyeshadow palette right? It's girly and i love it :)
and yes i did eat those chocolates on the table and Teegan ate the smarties ha ha,she actually did ask if she could eat the makeup lol {funny girl}
But it's just gorgeous like melted chocolate and comes with names inside on a plastic sheet to protect the shadows.
I still really wish MUR would put the names inside the palettes as i do lose those plastic sheets but for the price you can't complain about that,
The packaging is very sturdy robust thick plastic with a huge mirror and comes with white applicator sponge.

Love the shades in this palette although i do think it's lacking in more matte crease type colours,i used the second colour along in my crease but it could have done with another.
But the shadows are so very pigmented just like all MUR eyeshadow palettes :).

These are the swatches below so it shows which ones are shimmery and 2 maybe 3 that are matte .
How pretty are these? just beautiful and only £7.99 too which i think is a bargain.
If you can't wait to get your hands on this palette then the link is below...

Or the link below on Superdrug too ...

So do you own this palette or would you like to? do you own any other chocolate palette they have done? as they have now done 5 different ones.Would love to hear your thoughts.
Thanks for reading love and hugs Littlemissstyleguru aka Vinny

I also did a youtube review on this if you want to see swatches there instead then click play ;)>>>

Freedom Pro Brow Pomade Dark Brown

Freedom Pro Brow Pomade Dark Brown




Hi all and welcome back to my blog or if you are new then hi my name is Vinny.If you are already a follower then thanks but if not then pls follow via google friends connect or bloglovin as it means the world to me,and thanks to all my new followers too ♥♥

So as you can see this is a quick review of the new brow pomade by Freedom Makeup.They do a whole range of different colours to suit most hair colours i think to be honest.
My Superdrug doesn't sell Freedom and I'm not sure that you can swatch them anyway? so i took a stab in the dark and bought dark brown because i have black hair.This colour for me is still very very dark even with black hair but it is just about right i think as i like bolder brows anyway.
I prob could get away with medium brown too but this is fine.

Here is the swatch of it on my hand and don't forget this was with my finger and you will be using a brush so a bit different.

The consistency is very very creamy which is gorgeous,you can use any brush that feels right for you and is the shape you like.
Don't go on too dark and just start off with a light hand as if you slap too much on it can look a bit funny,takes practise and I'm stick actually practising,but i think i have pretty much mastered it now.

I am getting a great defined arched shape using this and once applied i leave to dry while doing the rest of my makeup,as this is just like a cream that dries on your brows.So then after about 5 mins i brush through lightly with a brow brush so they are not as dark and harsh and hey presto you are good to go.

This costs only £5.00 and i would buy it over and over again,i love this so much,it's fantastic for the price and having defined brows gives you a little more confidence :)
You can get this from the Freedom website >>>Here<<<
or the Superdrug website >>>Here<<<

do you have this or do you need to get your brows on fleek? then why not give it a try?


Thanks so much for reading ,love as always Littlemissstyleguru aka Vinny x♥x

Hi all and welcome back to my blog or if you are new then hi my name is Vinny.If you are already a follower then thanks but if not then pls follow via google friends connect or bloglovin as it means the world to me,and thanks to all my new followers too ♥♥

This is a quick review on the new Freedom Makeup lipstick collection called Vamp Noir and you get 5 stunning colours in a lovely presentation gift box like this...

This would make such a lovely gift or to just treat yourself to,the colours are divine and last really well on my lips actually,they are not too creamy not too matte so just about right and very very pigmented for £1.00,that is just so crazy.

Here are the stunning swatches and i have named them just for you :) I'm good like that lol,they are shown as in the first photo above in the same order.
Omg these colours aghh if this doesn't scream autumn winter to you then i don't know what does as these are seriously stunning...
and at the moment they seem to be out of stock on the Freedom website and the Superdrug website too,but i will leave the links anyway as you can keep checking.
Although i do know they sell them in some Superdrug stores so you might find them in yours.

here is the Freedom Website >>>Here<<<
Plus don't forget they have other colours too for the same price so have a quick nosey as they are fantastic lipsticks and full size too ♥
Here is the Superdrug Website >>>Here<<<

Freedom Makeup Pro Contour Shaped Stick Medium 01 Review

Freedom Makeup Pro Contour Shaped Stick Medium 01 Review

Hi all and welcome back to my blog or if you are new then hi my name is Vinny.If you are already a follower then thanks but if not then pls follow via google friends connect or bloglovin as it means the world to me,and thanks to all my new followers too ♥♥


Hi there here is a quick review on the new freedom Makeup Pro Contour stick in medium.
This is a dupe for the nyx one i would say,this is only £5.00 on the freedom Makeup website and you will find it >>>Here<<<
Also available on the Superdrug website and you will find that here too >>>Here<<<

As you can see they do this in 3 shades and when i first swatched it on my hand i was worried it would be too orange toned.

But no it was not too orange at all,it is just about perfect and a nice colour even for my pale skin,i love the creamy texture to this,the highlight works a treat and if like me you are a beginner with cream contour then this is ideal to get some practise in :)

This is a fantastic shape,wish it was either slightly longer or thicker maybe as i don't think it would last for ages,saying that i wouldn't use this everyday,it's very blendable and here i am in my camo war paint lol....

I put this over my foundation but before powder and it was really easy to work with as the shape is fab,you can use a brush or your fingers,so whatever feels best for you.

This is me after my makeup was done in the bathroom where i get the most light,as you can see it is not orange at all,i have not gone overboard and it looks pretty good if i do say so myself :)

I think it's cheap and works really well,it's really handy for travel too if you don't want to take a big contour palette then this is the ideal thing for you.
Do you own this or are you wanting to try it? would love to hear your thoughts.

thanks so much for reading and thanks to freedom Makeup for the blogger Pr sample.

Love always littlemissstyleguru aka Vinny ♥

Freedom Makeup Pro Powder Strobe Palette Review & Swatches

Freedom Makeup Pro Powder Strobe Palette Review & Swatches

Hi all and welcome back to my blog or if you are new then hi my name is Vinny.If you are already a follower then thanks but if not then pls follow via google friends connect or bloglovin as it means the world to me,and thanks to all my new followers too ♥♥

So this is  review on the beautiful New release from freedom Makeup called the Pro Strobe Powder palette.
This set contains 2 matte highlight powders and 1 shimmer then 3 matte contour bronzer powders,plus the gorgeous brush too.
For only £10 this is a complete bargain.
They are always having deals as at the moment it is 3 for 2 mix and match on all makeup,so don't miss out.
Here is the link to this product...

They also do a similar one to this but in a cream not powder,so if you would like to see that i have done a review and swatches here....

So back to the palette in question,this comes housed in sturdy black packaging with a full size mirror,i have swatched the powders next to the window in daylight to give you the true colours...

As you can see from the first two swatches they are a lovely light highlight colour and the end one on top row is the shimmer highlight which is great to use as strobe or to highlight cheek bones and any other area's you want to add shimmer.
The bottom three colours are different shades of matte brown.
These colours are ideal for me and i think i prefer this palette to the cream as the colours are better for me although the cream has fantastic highlight shades so it's hard to choose really.
These can be used to contour and as bronzer.


On the box you will see a diagram of where to highlight and the shade names too.
This comes with the most soft cutest brush ever,i really love the brush it's an ideal shape to highlight and contour.


The brush is really well made,just look at how soft these bristles are,and all cruelty free too :)

So i would certainly give this palette a huge 10/10 for price,packaging and texture,colour and quality.
I would certainly purchase this again,it's ideal for home use or even to add to mua's kit.

This is also available on the Superdrug website and in some very lucky superdrug stores too,link to Superdrug is below...

Do you own any of these strobe palette? if so then which one would you buy,this powder one or the cream one on my other post? or would you buy both :)

Thanks ever so much for reading,if you love Makeup Revolution and Freedom Makeup as much as me then please come and join our facebook fan page and give it a like,come and share your thoughts,blogs,photos,youtube videos on either brand,or just come for a chat,thanks ♥♥

Makeup Revolution DGJ Organics Haircare Shampoo Conditiner Organic Range

Makeup Revolution DGJ Organics Haircare Shampoo Conditioner Organic Range

Hi all and welcome back to my blog or if you are new then hi my name is Vinny.If you are already a follower then thanks but if not then pls follow via google friends connect or bloglovin as it means the world to me,and thanks to all my new followers too ♥♥


So here we have a review of the new Makeup Revolution haircare range.
Yes first it was makeup then Skincare,you might see in the background the other MUR skincare products called FaceB4 which are fab also,but now they have branched out into haircare,and it's an organic haircare range {even better}

This is called DGJ and it was originally developed by hairdresser Daniel Galvin Junior 10 years ago when there were no Organic haircare products available and the same formula is in them today which makes this product outstanding.
I received a shampoo and conditioner in 250ml bottles.
The scent is honeydew and melon which is honestly gorgeous as i love the smell of melon,it's so refreshing.

So i used these the Friday evening and I'm now typing this very late Monday night/Tues morning as it's nearly passed midnight eekk bed time lol.
Anyway here is my hair on Friday before my shower.

Yes a scary mess lol,recently i have tried a few shampoo's as you know when you use a certain brand that you love for years and then it just stops agreeing with your hair,so anyway yes this is where I'm at,once upon a time when i was in my late teens i used herbal essence but then they changed the packaging and formula and i hated it :(
so i then went onto using elvive by Loreal which was and is still my total fave,but recently it has been making my hair go greasy again withing like 2-3 days as before i could easy not wash my hair for 5 days,so that is why i look a bit sad above ha ha.

The shampoo is a clear colour and because it is organic it does state it might not foam up as much as a regular shampoo,although i found it to lather up just fine,OK maybe not as much as elvive but it did lather up well and i have mega thick hair too.It smelt divine.
After washing that off i applied the conditioner and left on for 5 mins while i shaved my legs as you do 
{ if you are a lady reading this that is lol}
Again it smelt gorgeous and the melon was just so nice as i don't think i actually own anything melon but i love the smell.
Then i washed it off and towel dried my hair,and OK i know you are not meant to go to bed with wet hair but i did,well not wet but damp,so yes i let it dry natural.
Then these next photos were taken Sunday morning after i has straightened my hair,so no hairdryer has been used,also no products have been used either only my straighter.

First i tried to get a photo to show just how beautiful and soft and shiny it really was.
But with no flash it wasn't picking up the shine,time to turn the flash on Vinny,so now you can see how super soft and shiny it leaves it,and yes i did go  a bit selfie crazy lol,i can never seem to get photo's that i actually like,so i just end up taking loads hee hee.
So yes a bit selfie crazy lol,but i hope you can see by the many photos just how soft and shiny it left it and this is 2 days after washing it.
Now is Mon nr Tues and it is still not greasy,still soft and shiny and not itchy or anything,so after using the once i can say i would really recommend,OK i have not used for weeks but if my hair is still soft after 4 nr 5 days then I'm chuffed.

If you want to actually purchase any of these then they do have an offer on the Makeup Revolution website at the moment,buy one get one free which is great but be quick,the link is below as they do so many more,they even do a kids range,colour care or hair thickening range,you should go check it out for sure.
Link.......

Thanks so much to Makeup Revolution for sending me this blogger pr sample ♥

I do also have a Youtube beauty / style family channel if you want to go and subscribe the link is below,would be so happy if you did.
