Is the Missguided £1 Bikini A Real Bargain

Image
If you're an avid fast fashion buyer or you like to stay in the loop, you would have seen that Missguided released a £1 bikini: a simple black triangle shape bikini ranging from sizes 4-24. The offer is for a limited time only; releasing 1000s onto the website each day. For some, this might sound like heaven. A cheap bikini perfect for Summer: a great staple. It even beats the prices of Primark and other brands promising cheap affordable clothing.

But how much of a bargain is this bikini for the consumer and the producers, when the bikini is only £1. This brings the question, how much is it really costing to make it? Are they really making a profit or are they shortchanging the suppliers and the workers behind that £1 bikini? When we break the bikini down it's all about polyester, which is largely unsustainable and harms the planet massively. So, if it's really worth that one photo of you on an inflatable in Greece then you do you, but for the rest of us, I think it's …

Drugstore Rose Gold Inspired Liner Look


I love changing my makeup every now and then, I love experimenting with different colours. But I have never really ventured out that far when it comes to eyeliner. I decided to go bold and try a rose gold liner look a couple of weeks ago on Twitter and Instagram and thought I'd share with you how it went. 

First off this isn't a look you can do 5 minutes before you need to head out. I'd leave a fair bit of time free incase you need to reapply it or need to practice getting that perfect wing. I did the rest of my face before attempting anything with my eyes which was a bit of a mistake as I did have to reapply the concealer around my eyes as I made a little mistake so definitely do this before the rest of your face. 




For an eye base I used the Maybelline 24 Hour Tattoo Cream Eyeshadow in Creme De Rose £5.99. I have used this almost every single day it's normally the one thing that is always on my lids currently. I can't get enough of it. It stays on all day and is such a neutral everyday colour that works great with warm toned shades. I normally leave this for about 5 minutes to set, during this time I was picking out what I would use for liner. 

Now for the life of me I can only work with felt tip styled liners, I haven't mastered brush liner yet so I didn't want to go straight in the deep end here. I decided to have a go with an angled liner brush as it's the most precise way to get exactly what you want. For the liner I decided to go with a lip topper. It might sound daft but it works great as they're intended to stick to your lips all day so surely it works the same for your lips right? I used the NYX Cosmic Metals Lip Topper in Speed of Light £7. It's such a highly pigmented rose gold look that I thought would be the best thing to use as it means I shouldn't need to go back and reapply it through the day. 





I decided to apply my eyeshadow first before the liner incase it got smudged. I used the Makeup Revolution Flawless Matte Palette £8. This is such a good day to night palette to use. The colours are pretty neutral but you can build them up and create a really nice look. I used the first light shade all over my lid and then used this gorgeous peachy shade on my crease. I used the more red toned shade on my outer lid just to make the look a bit bolder. 





Once I had blended this out it was time to finally go in with the liner. I started off by lining my eyes with the liner first to get the angle of the flick right. I then carefully ish did the flick and finished the look with the Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara £8.99. I have used this mascara for the longest time and I have no intention to try something new yet, it helps get the lashes I want overtime without flaking or going weird. 



And that's it I hope you enjoyed this kind of post. I want to start explaining more of my makeup looks  so you guys can see how I'm using some of my favourite products at the moment. 

                            Until next time, Chloe!
