Things To Do Before I Turn 25

I’m only 4 years away from turning 25 which isn’t really that long. A lot can change and happen in 4 years but I still want to make them some of the best years of my life. I’m not crazy adventurous and I’m probably the least spontaneous person ever because I like to be so organised and plan things. This doesn’t mean that I can’t plan to do some incredible things before I reach 25 years old. So, I thought I would share them with you. 

  • I failed my driving test in 2015 and never had the money to resist (student life, eh?). My theory test then ran out and life got in the way and I’ve never returned to it. Driving is something I’ve always wanted to do and although I don’t have any rush to do this, I now am at that age when I know it’s something I want to do before I reach 25. 
  • Finish education. I’m soon to start my master’s degree and after that, I don’t really think I want to do a PhD. This is probably the most realistic aspiration right now and I’m okay with that.  Coming soon.. Bethan Davies MA. 
  • Visit more of the UK. I was born and raised in Wales and I’ve not even seen a small portion of the country at all. I want to see more of where I’m from and learn more about the history of this lovely country. 
  • I would like to experience what it’s like to live alone before I eventually settle down. By alone I mean completely alone with no flatmates. This might seem weird to some but to me, this is just something I feel that all adults should have the opportunity to experience as it can open up a whole world of independence and a way to gain general life skills. 
  • Buy something expensive. A car? A piece of jewellery? I don’t know. I do know though, I want to purchase something out of my own money that is expensive but has meaning and a purpose. I don’t want to spend thousands of pounds on a Chanel bag (or do I?!) but I’d like to have something that I can look at and know what it resembles. 

There we have some of the major things I want to do before I reach 25. Perhaps some are a little extreme or not doable but I’ll spend some time trying to make these happen. If I only pick two or three of the list I’ll be happy.

Date Night Makeup Look

Valentine’s Day is approaching and we all want to look out best for our significant other. So, get your best dress out and your favourite lipstick and away we go! I really enjoy the basic, natural eye look with a red lip. Keep reading to find out how I achieve this look!

I always start my makeup off with clean, moisturised base. I then go in with the Benefit Porefessional Matte Rescue primer and massage it into my t-zone, since this is where I have the most issue trying to keep foundations to sit. After it’s settled I used the Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless foundation and buff it in with a dense brush. Taking the Maybelline Fit Me concealer in light I used my Real Techniques sponge and made sure everything looks seamless, ensuring that I bring it down my neck.  I then set my base using the Revlon Photoready powder to make sure it stays put throughout the whole night and making sure I especially pack it on under my eyes and nose area. I used the Too Faced Grande Hotel Cafe collection to add a light bronzer from the Gingerbread Cookie palette and blusher from the Peppermint Mocha palette (pictures below) and then highlighted my cheek bones, bridge of my nose and cupids bow with The Balm Mary Lou Manizer



For the eyes I want to keep them simple and classy, with a strong eyeliner and light crease colour. Using the Too Faced Grande Hotel Cafe collection again, from the Eggnog Latte palette I started with using the ‘Frosty Nog’ shade all over my lid and then using the shade ‘Skinny Latte’ in my crease, slowly building it up until my ideal shade. I added a strong wing to my upper lash line using the Ciate Fierce Flicks eyeliner and the Bourjois Black Kohl eyeliner in my upper waterline. 

For my lip colour I used the Avon Cosmetics matte lip colour in Wild Cherry all over.
