I hope everyone had a good weekend and a good Pride in London! I lied in the title, I actually didn’t go to Pride BUT I was working right in the very heart of it in Soho so I went extra hard with my look. This is only the second time I’ve done drag inspired makeup but I was v inspired by Trixie Mattel both makeup-wise and outfit-wise. I still have a looong way to go in terms of makeup but I’m pretty happy with how it came out this time! Also lol accidentally wore all Missguided that day, so they should really just sponsor me already tbh.

Anyway, I had a few reservations about Pride considering how it seems so fake and corny all the corporations are just capitalising in on this, but loads of my friends went and they had fun and I hope anyone else who went had fun too!

ALSO on another unrelated note – I got interviewed by the wonderful SLAPP app! I was so honoured they even considered me to interview and I had lots of fun doing it so please download the app and check it out!

I’ve been trying to do more artsy/creative makeup looks and I had the pleasure of being invited to the Bompas & Parr 10th birthday party so this was the perfect opportunity for me to do something more interesting. I was stuck for ideas and was looking at drag queens for inspiration and I ended up on doing this all pink look, even using pink to contour and everything. I love how well everything matches, including my dress! I wish I got better pictures of the look though, because I was too busy having fun and getting messy drunk to take actual quality pictures with my camera than iPhone selfies lol. This is what I get for not leaving enough time to get ready!

A very demure look this time? I think this is the most covered up I’ve been tbh hahaha. I went to a museum late at the Grant Museum of Zoology featuring a really interesting talk by Jazmine Miles-Long about her taxidermy work – it was super fascinating and it’s really motivated me to actually try out taxidermy because I’ve been interested for years omg. Seeing as I was going to a taxidermy event, I thought it’d be a perfect opportunity to bring out Claude Baguette, my fox stole lol – I found him in some random vintage shop and he’s honestly my favourite winter item because he’s so gotdam soft and warm! I wore lots of floaty sheer items to go with it and I feel like this outfit is like that Japanese style that I can’t remember the name of (?) but either way I love this kind of pastel vintage-y lingerie as outerwear kind of vibe haha.

Another very casual outfit! The trend is kind of dying now but I still love the t-shirt/slip dress combo, especially with trainers. I normally wear it with Converse but I just felt like wearing a chunkier shoe lol. Makeup-wise was also a very casual type look – I mixed a pink eyeshadow with a peach eyeshadow and layered it with gold to get a kind of rose-gold colour? Idk what I did but I liked it hahaha.

Silver Hair with Knight & Wilson | Beauty Review

Knight & Wilson Colour Freedom Misty Grey 717 (£7.99, Superdrug)

So I’ve been toying with the idea of doing a dark silver/grey hair colour before I go back to being fully pink again and I’ve been kind of randomly testing out a couple of products in order to achieve this. I know there are a lot better dyes on the market but I’ve basically been trying easily accessible products because I haven’t seen many reviews of them and I was curious to see what they were like.

This Knight & Wilson range of dyes always have a huuuuge range of colours in Superdrug and I’ve used their “rose gold” toner before so I just wanted to test out what this was like, because I was in the shop anyway and I thought I might as well lol. So this post is not sponsored in any way BUT if Knight & Wilson or any other hair companies would like to sponsor me I would have no objections to this!! Haha.

I was actually a bit confused by the packaging because they had another shade of silver called Silver Blonde but on both boxes they had the same colour shown as examples for the two different products? Also they have a range of ‘permanent’ silver dyes, though apparently they aren’t as permanent as they claim and I might try them next.

So as you can tell, I wasn’t really sure what I was going to expect with this product. My previous (half hearted) attempt at silver was just leaving in silver shampoo in for too long which resulted in a lavender-y colour and after the confusion with the packaging, I then saw that this dye was really purple-y in colour so I was a bit dubious as to what colour my hair would turn out after this. But I was actually kind of pleasantly surprised with the outcome?

As with most unnatural coloured hair dyes, this one is another one of those ‘semi permanent’ that you can dilute with conditioner to get a lighter shade. I’ve been dying my hair for like, over 5 years now and even though directions normally say to leave it in for 15-30 minutes, I usually leave it in for way longer or sometimes even sleep in it. I’m not actually sure if it helps with the longevity of the colour but I am lazy and it doesn’t actually harm the hair so I don’t see any harm in it. With this dye, I left it in for a bit more than an hour and I could see the dye actually changing colour from the purple-y grey to a more actual silver-y grey colour.

You can probably see in the pictures, the roots and my fringe of my hair did actually get quite silver. It’s a lot more silver than the middle half, which is my fault for not getting rid of the purple before dying it, but I was surprised at just how silver it got. It’s a bit more purple in tone irl but I’m not displeased about it. I think if you used this on straight up bleached hair it would probably be a lot better with the silver colour and it’s actually quite metallic looking rather than just a matte grey so that’s alright!

So basically I wasn’t blown away by the product but I was pleasantly surprised and I think it’s a good way of trying out this kind of silver colour cheaply without actually committing. My only main gripe with this is that it’s supposedly an ‘extra large’ packaging but I barely had any leftover after using it on not even all of my hair but other than that, it was pretty good!

Had a temporary lapse of judgement and my hair turned purple then blue for a bit. I know objectively the colours were nice but I honestly just hated it on me so much! Thank gawd I only had to deal with it for like, 2 weeks max before I bleached it out again lol. I think a few people thought I was saying it to be attention seeking but I just truly dislike dark hair colours on myself lol. Have you ever been mistook for being attention seeking??

I’ve never really posted my makeup on here before because I pretty much always do the same looks and I can never get very good clear pictures but I thought I might as well try it out. Is this something you guys would be interested in?? Maybe I could do a daily makeup guide IDK LOL.

Anyway I just recently refreshed the pink colour in my hair and it made me want to go for a super pink look! I even did pink mascara on my lower lashes but you cant really tell very well haha. I just love this kind of super sweet, super pink look– as much as I love wearing black, this is always one of my go-to looks for makeup!
