Makeup Revolution Iconic 2 Palette Review

I've always wanted the Urban Decay Naked Palettes. Unfortunately for me they are about £30-something each so that idea was out of the window. However luckily enough makeup revolution have created amazing dupes for all three of the naked palettes! And at the affordable price of only £4. 
It has a great range of matte and shimmery shades, warm toned and cool toned. Going from light to dark, it is amazing for everyday and also if you have a fancy occasion, it is great for creating smoky eyes! 
Here are swatches of all the shades after just one swipe. They are so pigmented for the price and almost exactly like the naked 2 palette! 

The black is especially pigmented, and I use it for my eyeliner a lot! 


So if you are like me; desperate for the naked palettes, maybe try out these palettes first! I will definitely be picking up the other two and maybe trying out some other makeup revolution palettes.

Hope you enjoyed this short review! Let me know what your favourite makeup revolution products are. 
Until Next Time

Blog Anniversary Post ~ Autumn Lookbook

Hey Guys!

So as you have probably guessed by the title that this is going to be an Autumn lookbook, however there is a very special reason that I have uploaded this today, the 13th of October. It is because today is the first anniversary of It's-Anna's-Life! I've been sharing my thoughts and opinions and ideas with the internet via this blog for a year now. That it so crazy to me! We also hit 8000 views about a month ago which is amazing and I would like to say a massive thankyou to anyone who reads my blog!

I wanted to do something special for today so I decided to do an Autumn lookbook because I love Autumn, fashion and lookbooks, so I thought it would be fun. Here you go!



Look 1: Casual Day Out Look
Shirt - Primark
Bandeau - New Look
Jeans - Primark
Jumper - H&M 

As we go into Autumn the weather is very  changable. At the moment it is at that stage where it isn't too cold but there is a sharp breeze in the air. This look is perfect because if it starts to get a bit chilly you can just pop a casual sweater on, you can't see it here but I love how the cream shirt collar sits on top of the jumper! 


Look 2: Relaxed Weekend Look
Top - TK Maxx 
Jeans - Primark

I love this one because it is so comfortable, this top is so soft and I love the different lengths of it! It is very swishy and quite boho. These jeans weren't ripped when I got them but I've had them for over two years so the knees wore down. I love the light wash colour! 


Look 3: Dressy Day/Evening 

Top - Primark (surprisingly) 
Skirt -
Necklace - Random shop in Mallorca 
Tights - Anywhere 
Boots - 

This look can be quite versatile as you can dress it up with a bit more jewellery and a nice cardigan or leather jacket to make it more of an evening look, or keep it casual with a big jumper over the top or just as it is! :) I also love a bit of tarted so this skirt is perfect. 


Look 4: Cozy Autumn Day 

Crop Top - Topshop
Highwaisted Jeans - H&M 
Cardigan - Primark
Beret - Accessorize 
Shoes - Rocket Dogs 
Bracelet - Cancer Research 

I've saved my favourite look until last, this outfit is casual and cozy but still looks like you put some effort in, the white and black threads running through this gorgeous big cardigan make this whole outfit come together nicely. It is great for Autumn because it can still be warm outside so this look keeps you cozy whilst not being to hot! 


So I hope you enjoyed this Lookbook! I loved writing it and getting the photos! Leave blog post suggestions down below :) 
Until next time
