So Tonal

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone,

This look started off from this incredible teddy bear jacket; I loved the colour and texture and I hadn’t really seen anything else like it. Tonal looks are in this season and the mixture of the orangey browns and nudes works so well to create an Autumn look.

Can I also just take a minute for this snake necklace too which I literally purchased the second I spotted it! I love anything that’s unique and it’s going to be perfect with high neck tops and knitwear this season.

Autumn Makeup Look Using Morphe 35P Palette

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone,

I’ve wanted a Morphe palette for such a long time and I was always unsure which one to go for but I’ve recently been really into purple make up looks and when I saw the 35P palette, I knew it would be perfect.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As you can see there are a huge amount of shades and it was really affordable. The shades range from everyday nudes and browns through to reds and purples which are perfect for this time of year.

I wasn’t sure what the quality of the shadows would be like but from the couple I have tested, I am very impressed. I did have to apply one of the more glittery shades with my finger rather than a brush for more pigmentation but it wasn’t a big deal and it made the colour pop so much.

For my eyes; I used 5 shades from the Morphe 35P Palette. I used No. 1 all over my eye and up to my eyebrows (I didn’t use any eyeshadow primer), No. 2 over my eye socket up to the crease, No. 3 is the shade I added with my finger on the inner half of my eye and the colour was incredible, I then added No. 4 on the outer corner of my eye and I smoked this out and blended it in with No. 5 into my crease, which I also used underneath my eye for a smoky eye look.

You can find the Morphe 35P palette here.

I am so excited to use more of the shades in this palette and I’m definitely adding a couple onto my Christmas list!

Are there any other Morphe palettes you think I should try?

Much Love,

Weekend Casual

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone,

Sometimes I love a casual outfit perfect for a Sunday stroll in the park and comfy for chilling at home and this is perfect.The major thing is the jumper which I am in love with! Just because it’s a casual look, it doesn’t mean it has to be boring 😉

The jumper comes super oversized and I’m actually wearing an XSmall (possibly for the first time in my entire life) so not only does it make you feel great about yourself but it looks amazing too!

I recently discovered these jeggings and they are so comfortable and easy to get on. I really like the tone of blue that they are in as they’re not too bright and more of a true denim colour in my eyes which is hard to find in jeggings. They’re so stretchy that I think I could have gone down a size, but I’m impatient and I just wanted to wear them too much!

Autumn Drugstore Makeup Haul

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone,

I popped into town the other day and spotted that Superdrug had 3 for 2 on all of their makeup… Dangerous! So I got a little spendy and I thought I’d show you what I got from there and Boots!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

L’Oreal L’OR Highlighter – £4.99

I’d heard Alix from I Covet Thee on youtube rave about this and I really wanted to try it for myself. I expected it to be much more expensive but I was pleasantly surprised. I haven’t used it on my face yet, but from swatching it, it has an almost velvet texture.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Barry M Matte Lipstick – 179 – £4.99

This is one of the new matte lipsticks from Barry M and I just fell in love with the colour!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

MUA Luxe Eyeshadow Palette – Enchanted – £6.00

I can’t get over how pretty this palette is and I’m so excited to try it. It really reminds me of the Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette but around £50 cheaper! I’m not sure on the quality of the eyeshadows but I’ll keep you updated once I’ve tested it.

Garnier Moisture Bomb Face Mask – 99p

I actually tried this mask the night that I got it and after trying other sheet masks, it is one of my favourites. The product didn’t drip off and go everywhere like others do and it clung to my face so it felt like it was really working. My skin didn’t feel very soft afterwards but it looked very moisturised and brighter. For the price (it’s usual price is £1.49) it’s worth a try if you have dry skin like me.

Max Factor Creme Puff Blush – Gorgeous Berries – £8.99

I haven’t had a berry blush shade before and this just looked so pretty! I’m all about the autumn make up at the moment and this fits in perfectly.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

MUA Luxe Glow Beam Liquid Highlight Cushion – £5.00

This is another new release from MUA and it’s a cushion highlight which I’ve never tried before. I have swatched it and it’s quite subtle, but I think it will work well layered under a powder highlight to ensure that it doesn’t budge all day!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

NYX Matte Lipsticks – Eurotrash and Tea Rose – £6.50 each

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Makeup Obsession Build Your Own Palette – Palette – £6.00 and each pan – £3.00 each

  • Top Row from Right to Left – Contour Powder C102 Light, Contour Powder C101 Fair, Highlight H103 Bronze
  • Bottom Row from Right to Left – Banana Powder C111, Blush B112 Bloom, Highlight H104 Moon

So Boots now have something called a Makeup Emporium in some of their stores and they have one in Northampton. You can test lots of different makeup they have selected and you can build your own face or eyeshadow palettes. I really wanted to build a face palette so I can take it with me when I travel. They have everything you need from contour powders, blush and the most incredibly pigmented highlighters!

Have you been buying any of the new Autumn make up releases?

Much Love,

Hi Everyone,

I am such a fan of statement accessories and there is nothing more statement than this handbag! I spotted it online and had to get it straight away. I know it’s quite a bright colour and I wasn’t sure how to style it, but I felt that I wanted a basic outfit in black and this incredible bomber jacket with all the patches to pull it together.

The bag is pretty huge, it fits so much in it and it’s so soft. There’s also a black version which I’ll link below, that might be more appropriate if you don’t like bright colours as much as me!

A Year as FashionBelle

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone!

So my blog hit one year old on 23rd September and I can’t believe it, it’s gone so quickly!

When I started my blog, I wanted to inspire both disabled and able bodied people to be who they want to be and to style themselves in anyway they want. I had never let my disability get in the way of my love of fashion and beauty and I wanted to show other disabled people that their disability didn’t need to stop them from standing out in their own unique way.

Honestly a year down the line, when I look back, I thought I’d have more than a thousand instagram followers and hundreds of views on my blog each day; but it doesn’t work like that.. I’ve learnt that I will get nowhere without hard work and determination and that if I continue to do this, then it will pay off eventually!

I enjoy what I do so much, I love writing my blog even though some days after work I just want to chill and do nothing! But my passion is fashion and beauty and I’m so pleased that I have this platform to share it with everyone!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve got so much planned for the future of FashionBelle, but if there are any posts etc that you’d love to see, products you’d like me to review etc, then please let me know in the comments and I would really appreciate it!

Hi Everyone!

I have been lusting after some leopard print boots for such a long time and as you all probably know by now as I mention it so often, I have super fat feet which makes finding shoes and boots near impossible!! I ordered these on the off chance that they’d fit with not very high hopes, but to my amazement I had a cinderella moment and they went on perfectly!

I couldn’t wait to style them and I loved the contrast of the bright red in this dress with the leopard print and to complete the outfit I added this black floppy hat with a necktie to give the whole look a boho feel.
