July Favourites

I must say this at the end of every month but seriously, where is the time going?! I feel like I'm gonna be 30 in a minute... Well an over exaggeration there but I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way?!

Any who, today I will be sharing with you my July favourites. I really do like this time of month because there are loads of blog posts to read and YouTube videos to watch. It's my favourite past time.

Current High-End Favourites

Hello girlies, today I will be sharing with you the high-end products I have been showing a lot of love to lately. 

Latest In Beauty - The Glamour Edit Box

 When I saw other bloggers talking about this beauty box I knew I had to buy it. The main selling point for me was £86.15 for £16.95, how could I resist?! I like that you know what products you are going to get whereas in Birchbox it's a bit of a gamble. The Latest In Beauty, Glamour Edit Box has nine products featuring a new lipstick release from Illamasqua. So not only are you getting complete value for money there is a product in the box that isn't even out yet! Now on to the products.

My Holy Grail Products

 Today I’ll be sharing with you my holy grail products, products that I cannot live without and if I ran out of them I would be straight to the shops to repurchase! This post was supposed to be a guest post for somebody but that didn't work out... So I'll be sharing this post on my blog instead. 
We all have those products that just work for us and even though I’m constantly trying new things I’m never without these beauties.

Makeup Revolution Haul

I'm sure you have all heard of Makeup Revolution before and if not where have you been? Makeup Revolution are the new craze amongst bloggers because of their Naked Palette dupes, insanely affordable prices and a great range of products. I picked up a few bits to try out so today I am going to share them with you.


Heya guys! My name is Megan and I run things over at My Pretty Apparel. I have very excitingly been offered the opportunity to write a guest post on Freshly Pressed Beauty and I couldn't be more thrilled. Beauty bloggers coming together to just have a good old natter, what's better? So, I have decided to show you all my MAC lipstick collection. Personally, I love reading 'collection' posts whether that be lip products, eye shadow or even shoes. So I really hope you enjoy taking a peak through my MAC lipstick collection... 
You can also find me on many social networking sites and would mean the world if you checked them out! InstagramTwitter & Bloglovin.
To be completely honest, I don't wear lipstick everyday and am much more an eyeshadow kind of girl. This is definitely something I am trying to change as I always admire the girls that manage to have a perfect pout all day long. My all time favourite lip definitely has to be a nude lip, think 'yours but better'.

GUEST BLOGGER POPPY CARTER: Elf Contour Blush & Bronzer Review

Hi there!

My blog is http://poppycarter.blogspot.co.uk/ where I upload beauty and fashion inspired posts. I inspire to be a fashion/portrait photographer and I try my hardest to include this within my blog. I love all things fashion/beauty as it is a daily part of my getting ready regime, so why not turn it into a hobby? I started mainly on Instagram which I will leave a link to here. I hope you all enjoy my guest blog.

TAG: Would You Rather

Today I'll be sharing with you the "would you rather tag". I love these kinds of tags because imagining yourself in these kind of situations is terrifying but amusing. I hope you enjoy my answers! 

Would you rather walk around all day with you skirt tucked in your underwear or be seen wearing a really see through dress?
I would rather rock a see through dress. 

Would you rather go to a party and not realize until the end of the night that you have lipstick on your teeth or that your fake lashes are coming unglued?
Mmm this is really tough! Lipstick on my teeth, I'm not a huge fan of fake eyelashes anyway.

Would you rather forget to put mascara on one eye or forget blush on one side of your face?
Forget to put blush. My eyes look so weird without mascara!

Would you rather wear lipstick/lipliner combo or frosty blue eyeshadow?
Frosty blue eye shadow.

Would you rather wear foundation that is two shades too light or go way overboard on bronzer?
Way overboard on bronzer. Anything is better than that horrible tide line from foundation

Would you rather drink an entire bottle of ketchup or run into the guy who broke your heart on a bad hair day when your skin is freaking out?
Ketchup. Mmm.

Would you rather be able to date any celeb you wanted or wake up with perfect red carpet-worthy hair? 

Definitely red carpet-worthy hair! 

Would you rather your armpits smell musky or like delicious lasagna?

Musky, smelling of food is a tad strange.

Would you rather give up your makeup or cell phone for one year?

Phone! I am addicted to both though.

Would you rather run into a cute guy you like with food all in your grill or no makeup?

No make-up haha, food over your face looks like you don't know how to keep it in your mouth.

MOTD #1: Everyday look + first impressions

 Hey lovelies. Today I'll be bringing you my everyday make-up. I hate taking photos of myself but I want to share with you my make-up on a daily basis, so I'll show you the make-up that I use, how I use it and how I feel about it. I hope you enjoy this new feature!

I always apply my primer first on freshly moisturised skin. I used L'Oreal's Magique all over my face to blur over my pores and smooth out my complexion. Like the idiot I am, I forgot to picture it so please forgive me.

Common White Girl Tag

I've seen this tag floating around lately and I couldn't resist doing it. The name of the tag is what got me aha! So lets see how commonly white I am shall we?

GUEST BLOGGER LILY GRAY: Animal Cruelty-Free Make-up

Animal cruelty has always seemed to be something that I've cared about deeply, so I decided to go full vegetarian (while also incorporating vegan into my daily life) and cruelty-free with all my cosmetics. Doing so allowed me to introduce my beliefs into a daily practice, and has become a very enjoyable way of life for me; knowing that everything you do and use isn't having a negative impact on innocent lives is something I find very humbling. 

There are plenty of articles out there on cruelty-free and vegan make-up, but I could never find one that I personally found interesting to read and informative enough, so, with the kind opportunity from Daniella, here is my guide to cruelty-free make-up and cosmetics!

June Favourites

It’s that time of the month again, favourites time! I love watching these types of videos on YouTube, I find them to be great if I’m searching for new products to try. Which is all the time… Anyone with me? Haha!
