Birchbox 3 Months On

Image
Subscription boxes are a weird niche, they're a nice little pick me up each month tailored to you. For me, I've always wanted to try these and for the past three months, I've been subscribed to Birchbox. Each month I've received a bunch of products and I've given my verdict on them. I thought I would review the whole service after three months of purchasing and share my loves from the boxes and the ones you could definitely miss out on. 

The boxes overall have been good, there hasn't been any in which I haven't been disappointed. The service offers boxes tailored to you, after filling out a quick questionnaire it helps to tailor the products to you. What I've found throughout the boxes is it's normally 1 or 2 products that you will receive that might be different to what other people receive. This means there isn't that much personalisation around the box and what you get. 

However, I feel like the products in there, for the most part, are tailore…

Autumnal Orange Toned Eye Look



Autumn is finally here and I couldn't be happier. It's time for the scarfs, coats, and anything orange and red is back out. Which means that it's time for me to start bringing out the Autumnal looks and I thought I would kick it off with an eye look. This eye look is fully drugstore so it's an easy way to get that Autumnal look all day everyday.

For my eye base I'm using the Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer £3.99. It's been years since I used this concealer I forgot how good of a base it is for the eyes. I normally sweep this over the lids and then let it set with the Rimmel Stay Matte Translucent Powder £3.99.




Once this has set it's time to try out a new palette. Barry M recently released their Fall in Love £6.49 palette. First of all it's an actual dream to look at, you couldn't get more Autumn vibes from any other palette. It features 10 matte shades allowing you to get that dreamy eye look in so many different ways. I'm taking the first shade over the lid to set a base for the shadow. Next i'm taking the yellow shade and blending this across the lid. This shadow isn't too intense so it's easy to build up if you wanted to go really bold over the eye.  




Then I'm taking the orange shade and blending this over the crease to gradually blend it out from the yellow. Once I've blended it out in the crease i'm going back with the first shade in the palette and cleaning up any mistakes. It's an easy shade to blend out, once this is done I'm taking a bit of the orange and brushing it across the waterline and then line the eyes and apply a bit of mascara and the look is done. 



This with the yellow is spot on for Autumn. It's something that looks like a lot of time and effort has gone into it when really it's quite easy to do. I'm so happy we're in this season and I can't wait to start breaking out all the boots and start showing you what's in my essential Autumn wardrobe. 

I have a new post up every Wednesday and Sunday and a new post up on the Bloglovin every Friday. I also post daily over on my Twitter and Instagram so head on over to there to see what's going on. And i'll be doing the Halloween posts soon so stay tuned for that!
