Face Of The Day - Daytime Smokey Eyes

This is the look i wore yesterday  when i went to get my hair coloured. I wanted a neutral look that would work with the red & darker brown i was having put it (which doesn't show in pictures but looks sooo nice in real life)
 I used the day smoke colpors from the Too Faced Smokey Eyes Palette,but didn't follow the instructions, just did my own thing. I absouletly looove this look and will be doing a tutorial for it - it's super quick and easy.  Hope you like it, it's one i'm going to be wearing a lot more often. The pictures were taken before i had my hair done.I took some pictures afterwards but the colours didn't show up:( so will try to take some more and post them tomorrow. 
Thanks to everyone following my blog i really appreciate your support :) 
Take care peeps

New name - same channel

 Hi ladies hope you are all well. Some of you may be wondering why i have changed the name of my blog. Basically it's because i wanted my youtube channel and blog to have the same title - to make it easier for people to remember and find me. When i first started my blog i wasn't able to have the name, so choose My Bargain Beauty Blog instead. But to be honest i was never entirety happy with it. So i am sooooo glad i can finally use Me and My Make Up. But let me know what you guys think

Guess which beauty guru i met yesterday?

Well after my shopping spree (see previous post) me and my hubby went to grab a bit of lunch. Now this was a major achievement as we haven't been able to have a meal out (due to panic attacks) for  2-3 years. But i'd had my hair done and was feeling quite good. so we decided to take advantage of it and popped in Costa Coffee. No sooner had we sat down with our lunch,did i  notice a rather familiar face heading towards the next table. After a few surreptitious glances, just to be sure (during which my husband thought i'd lost the plot)  i finally managed to pluck up the courage to say hello to the lovely, professional make up artist, youtube beauty guru and blogger ( also  a model in some of Pixiwoo's tutorials) TANYA BURR aka PIXI2WOO.)  It was slightly surreal to say the least and although i kept the conversation brief (i didn't want to intrude on her lunch) i am pleased to say she seemed just as lovely in person as she does in her videos.And just as pretty. I must admit i did sit there thinking 'what does my make up look like, is my eyeliner half way down my face etc lol.
So next time you are out and about, just keep your eyes peeled.You never know you just may spot one of your favourite gurus
