My Favourite liquid Lipsticks

Hello Everyone,

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, I have been working on my social media page @georginalongmakeup – Instagram.

Jeffree star cosmetics have a range of velour liquid lipsticks. I am going to be purchasing a few more as they are not drying or have a tacky feeling, they have a lovely scent to them. I would definitely recommend this brand if your trying out liquid lipsticks for the first time.

If your wanting to create more of a fuller lip I would recommend a matte lip kit. Makeup Revolution have a great range and only cost £6. You can shop for these products in Superdrug. It comes with a lip liner which is great to line your lips for more definition. I am going to be putting a post up soon about makeup Revolution products are they are such good quality for the price!!

If you have any recommendations on liquid lipsticks you have tried, do let me know, I am always on the search for new makeup.

Kylie Jenner lip kits are amazing to create a fuller lip if desired, a little bit more on the pricey side, but are worth it as the pigmentation is good quality. Nyx creme lipsticks are great, non drying. They are cheaper too, really nice to use everyday and long lasting.

Colourful Eyeshadow

Hello Everyone, I have been trying out some different makeup looks last week and this week and been posting on my Instagram page Georginalongmakeup would appreciate it if you can follow my page! Let me know that you read my blog and I’ll give you a follow! For the products I use check out my post on Instagram.

I have been using various palettes to come up with one eyeshadow look. Makeup Revolution palette are great to use if your starting of creating looks or if you want to build yourself a makeup collection. Their palettes are great quality and only £4 at Superdrug.com

Beautybay.com have makeup geek eyeshadow pans which are about £6. I purchase a few of these from time to time and are great to use with palettes. I want to try out white eyeliner, I think it’s the new trend and love the way it looks with eyeshadow.

Pink Smokey Eye Makeup

Hello Everyone, I have create a pink smokey eye look using the Huda beauty mauve makeup obsessions palette and a makeup geek eyeshadow. I love these two brands and they have such great pigmentation to their eyeshadows.

To see more of my makeup pictures please follow my Instagram- georginalongmakeup

I haven’t used a pink eyeshadow in a while and wanted create a makeup look which stood out a bit more. I think it’s really important to have a blending brush when using bright or dark colours this will even it out and get rid of harsh lines. You can get some amazing brushes at beautybay.com

I love using false eyelashes when using eyeshadow, it gives my eye a nice look and puts everything together, I always use a pencil or liner to create a wing and like using a pencil in my water line.

Thank you for reading. I hope you like this makeup look💄🎨👄

For the price I think this is a great product and would recommend.

Makeup Revolution + Free Makeup

Hello Everyone, I have came across a makeup brand that I REALLY wanted to try out. Alot of beauty gurus on youtube have been raving about how great and affordable the makeup is. The Makeup Revolution concealer is the most spoken about because of how great coverage it gives and people have compared it to the shape tape concealer by Tarte. Many people are saying it is a great dupe. The concealer is thick but creamy and easily blendable, works great with a small buffer brush or damp beauty blender.

Makeup revolution + free palette

TIP: To make my concealer last longer, I spray some Mac Pro Fix + onto my damp beauty blender before blending. This makes the concealer stay on and last through out the day.

I went on to Superdrug.com and purchased their concealer which was £4, an amazing price as this concealer is great quality, this has to be my new favourite and will be buying it in more shades as the one I purchased is a bit light for my skin tone but I can work around that by applying a darker powder on top.

I wanted to get a new liquid lipstick kit as I just love how they are long lasting and you do not need to keep applying after you eat or drink. I purchased a makeup revolution lip kit which is are great dupes of KYLIE JENNERS Lip kits. I purchased one in the colour NOBLE. It comes with the lip pencil which is super easy to apply as its creamy and soft and goes great with the liquid lipstick. I would recommend if purchasing this, to put on a lip cream or vasiline before applying this product, just to get some moisture on the lips as this can be a bit dry, depending how much layers you put on.

The next item I got was the contour palette which has a great range of colours to choose from. I love this palette as it has cool grey tones which are more natural looking when sculpting the face and contouring those cheekbones. The powders are really pigmented and feel amazing on the skin and gives a good coverage if you are setting your under eyes. 

The palette cost me £8 which I think is a great price as some well known palettes are over £20 and that is just for one product. I was so happy that I got some amazing product all for under £20.

When shopping on Superdrug they was doing a deal if you spend over £12 on Makeup revolution products you recieve a free palette. I have looked on the website this morning & they have taken off the deal which I am sad about as I wanted to share with you guys! This palette has eyeshadows and highlighters and are soo pigmented. I have found a great palette which is similar to this palette Love conquers all at just £4. Click link to see ALTERNATIVE.

The next thing I want to purchase from this brand is their £4 eyeshadow palette. I have researched about this product and watched many youtube videos and people cannot believe how great and pigmented the eyeshadows are. Smooth and easy to apply which is what I LOVE.

Best Skincare Prouducts For Breakouts

Hello Everyone, I have been testing out some skincare products recently to see which works with my skin best to help get rid of breakouts. I started by getting little bumps over my forehead and just didnt know what they was until I researched and found out its not a rash or pimples but clogged pores!! I started to research more and find out how I can get rid of these pesty pores. 

  • Exfoliate your skin at least 3 days a week. 

Exfoliating your skin 3 times a week can remove dead skin cells and can help reduce or remove those bumps. Leaving your skin feeling and looking much smoother which is a great feeling, even when applying your makeup your skin will feel less rough and more soft.

  • Cleanse your skin everyday.

Cleansing your skin everyday will help remove any dirt/oil and any left over makeup.  Throughout the day the skin on your face is continually covered with bacteria, pollutants, viruses, dirt, and old (dead) skin cells, this will help reduce the breakouts and will give you a fresh look.

  • Find a great moistuirser which will not irritate your skin.

Before finding the perfect product to use on my face to give moisture, I was using anti aging creams which was making my skin feel even worse and dry feeling and I could not understand why I was getting red rashes over my face. I have sensitive skin so I needed to change my moisuirser ASAP! I then decided to give ALOE VERA Gel a go which is great to use as a moisturiser as its super hyrdating. 

The benefits of aloe vera are that its great for pigmentation, acne, eczema and contains two hormones which are Auxin and Gibberellins. These two hormones provide wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation.

You can check out my previous blog post about my favourite cleansing makeup wipes that I use, by clicking here. 

Lets now talk about my favourite products I am using to exfoliate and cleanse my skin!

  • Chinese Ginseng & Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask

the body shop Chinese ginseng and rice mask

  • My favourite product to use for exfoliating my skin, it has a lovely scent and feels lovely on your skin, I like to apply this product on first before cleansing my skin and apply and rub circle motions into my skin with a little water. You can apply this mask how ever you want and what works best for you.

  • Give your skin a new lease of life with our Chinese Ginseng and Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask. Inspired by Chinese traditions, we have blended ginseng extract, rice extract and sesame seed oil into our 100% vegetarian creamy exfoliating mask, that has been formulated without parabens, paraffin, silicone or mineral oil. Use two to three times a week to reveal brighter-looking, even and supple feeling skin. – The Body Shop

    • 100% vegetarian
    • Creamy exfoliating face mask
    • For skin that needs an intense treatment to remove dullness and unevenness.
    • Illuminates, evens and revitalises skin
    • Formulated without parabens, paraffin, silicone or mineral oil
    • Ideal to create a facial at home
    • Blended with rice & ginseng extracts from China and organic Community Trade sesame seed oil from Nicaragu
  • Lush Mask Of Magnaminty Self-PreservingGently cleansed Mask Of Magnaminty Self-Preserving

  • This face and body mask I recieved as a gift for Christmas and LOVE it! It smells like chocolate chip mint and makes my skin look glowing after applying! This product is great to help fight spots and contains 13 100% vegetarian ingredients. I have used this product about five times and no where near-half way through. This pot lasts a very long time depending how much you apply on to your skin. My face tingles slightly when having this mask on but left my skin feeling fresh, smooth and all blemishes were gone!

  • A minty, multi-purpose mask with a mixture of gentle yet effective ingredients, including honey and kaolin, to help you maintain your magnificent skin. – Lush 

  • But why choose self preserving?

  • This marvellous mixture keeps itself clean without the help of synthetic preservatives. That’s because the hydrating antibacterial honey that keeps your skin clean and fresh, does the same to the formula and prevents it from growing microorganisms. Clever!

  • The extra honey in this formula gives the mask a more luxurious, thicker texture than its preserved counterpart – meaning it does not dry on your skin in the same way as the preserved version. When it comes to choosing between the two, it all comes down to preference. – Lush 

The cleanser I am currently using is unfortunatly sold out every where and you cannot buy the product anymore. It was by Lisa Hoffman and was a serum day cleanser. When this product runs out I will definatly will be sticking to a serum cleanser as I love how it feels when applying and it is also easy to apply. Rubbing all the serum into my skin and washing off with warm water and then cold water to close the pores.

TIP

Try not to touch your face. WHAAT! Sounds silly but through out the day your hands can pick up bacteria and with out noticing you can be resting your head on your hand and instantly putting bacteria on your face which can cause a pimple.

I was wondering why I have pimples on my chin, but now I know what was causing so much breakouts around that area, Resting my head on my hand!

I hope this post helped you, if you have any recommendations of skincare products comment below.

Thanks for reading!

Searching for the best liquid lipstick!

Hello Everyone, I have been researching online for the best liquid lipsticks, I love using liquid lipstick to ordinary lipsticks as I find them more long lasting and the product does not come off after you eat or drink!

I recently purchased a soft matte creme liquid lipstick from Nyx in the colour ‘Stockholm’ I like nude/pink tones for an everyday look and this colour if perfect and you can glam it up for in the evening by applying a gloss over the top.

nyx liquid lipstick

This lip creme is £6 which is an amazing price compared to other liquid lipsticks out there. You can buy this product in Boots/Cult Beauty/Debenhams & many more stores and online websites. What I love about this product is that it is not too drying on the lips but I would always recomend you exfoliate your lips before applying or appyling a lip balm before just so the lipstick does not crack or look super dry.

 

Jeffree Star has a collection of velour liquid lipsticks which I have two of in the colour Gemini & Calabasas. These lipsticks are slightly more expensive at £16 which is a little pricey for a lipstick but its worth it if your looking for a good quality liquid lipstick! These lipsticks have a nice scent are smooth to apply and not too tacky or drying on the lips.

 

 

 

I love the Kylie Cosmetics Matte liquid lipstick, I have purchased the lip kit before and find it so handy that you get the matching colour lip liner. I find it so hard to find a lip liner  that matches my lipsticks so purchasing this was a life saver!

‘The Matte Liquid Lipstick has high intensity pigment for an instant bold matte lip. The extremely long wearing lipstick contains moisturizing ingredients for a comfortable, emollient and silky feel that does not dry your lips out’ – Kylie Cosmetics

Kylie-New-Singles-DolceK.jpg

You can also buy Matte singles with out the liner, which is more cheaper at $17/£12.13. Sadly you can only purchase these liquid lipsticks on kyliecosmetics.com. Which you have to pay abit extra for shipping if you are out of the states.

All three of these liquid lipsticks I am pleased with and would definalty recommend if you are looking for a new liquid lipstick or if you havent try out one and looking to purchase one. I tend to stick with lighter colours when using a liquid lipstick just because I personally prefer the way it looks wearing nude/pink & brownish tones.

What facial cleansing wipes I use to remove makeup

Hello Everyone, sorry I haven’t posted in a while, today I wanted to share with you the makeup remover wipes I am currently using. My skin was looking and feeling so bad the last couple of weeks, I have been trying out different products to help my skin clear. I feel that cleansing wipes are a big part to blame for my skin breakouts, some wipes I was previously using would dry out my skin and make it feel and look dull.

I love to use wipes that have some moisture in them and contain natural ingredients to help my skin. I first started off by purchasing simple kind to skin cleansing facial wipes. Simple are rated no 1 uk skincare brand, so I thought I would give this product a go. No artificial perfume or colour – no harsh chemicals that can upset your skin. I think this is a great product if you have sensitive skin or want to give your skin a break from harsh chemicals. Personally I felt as if this product didn’t help my skin, it made my face feel tight and dry after removing my makeup. I think that some sort of moisturiser added to these wipes would make it 100% better. For example aloe Vera,it’s natural and super hydrating. After exfoliating and cleansing my skin I have been using aloe Vera gel as a moisturiser. I didn’t want to use anything that had harsh chemicals. I had those little bumps over my forehead and was so confused of why I couldn’t get rid of them. But I have made sure to exfoliate at least once a week and has helped a lot to un clog those pores !! I cleanse my skin everyday but sometimes you need to get rid of those dead skin cells.

I have now been using L’Oreal fine flowers cleansing wipes ( rose & lotus) they are more expensive than the simple wipes but I love how they make my skin feel. They have so much moisture containing sweet almond oil and they smell divine. I don’t mind my cleansing wipes having a fragrance as they don’t irritate my skin. Rose & Lotus are great for the skin also, I love using products that contains plant /flower ingredients . You get 25 wipes in a packet, I use a full wipe at night and cleanse my face and in the morning I like to rip one in half and use just to make sure all dirt and oil is off my face after washing my face.

I like to apply a lip balm after removing my makeup off for the day and before applying my makeup. I am currently using Nivea hydro care balm this is a great product. If your looking for something that’s more intense and will help nourish your skin quicker, I would recommend Vaseline, I sometimes apply this on my lashes too, it helps them grow! 🙂

Thank you for reading and I hoped this has helped you if your looking for new skincare products!

My Favourite Mascaras To Get Long Lashes

Hello Everyone! I wanted to share with you some of my favourite mascaras that work well with my lashes. When it comes to my lashes I like them to appear longer and darker, I tend to choose a black or an extreme black colour, if you wanting a subtle natural colour a brown will be best or if you want to go all out, a blue mascara on the bottom lashes can always style up your look and will go great with a blue eyeshadow.

theyre-real-mascara-swatch-black_4.png

Years ago I purchased a mascara at the airport when I was on my way home from the united states, The Loreal telescopic mascara  made my lashes look super long and is the best mascara I have ever used thats a drug store product.

Unknown

 This mascara is still on the market for £10.99 which is not bad at all considering this does wonders to my eyelashes, I do not have to apply lashes when using this mascara and is great to wear during the day! The mascara brush is great for getting all your lashes covered as its thin brush lifts every single one!

Dior Forever Mascara

My favourite high-end mascara has to be my Dior show time mascara, this has a big brush which makes it quicker to apply and I love the way they make my lashes look, I like using this mascara on special occasions or if I am going on a night out. I like doing this as its on the pricey side for a mascara costing £25.50. For extra lift you can also get the Diorshow Maximizer 3D Triple Volume Plumping Lash Primer. You can use this before applying your mascara to intensify its effects.

packshots_3348901252881.png

Benefit has a lovely mascara called They’re Real, this mascara is perfect if you wanting your lashes super long and full looking, costing £20.50 is not far off from a high end mascara but depending on how you want your lashes to look, this will be ideal for you if you love a thin mascara brush that achieves maximum volume, long-wearing with a glossy formula.

10552547-1382087024-388747.jpg

I don’t really use a mascara primer before applying my mascara, I am always curious if they actually work, if you apply a primer on first let me know on your thoughts on them and if I should purchase one!

To make my lashes appear more longer, my tips would be to curl your lashes before applying, only apply a thin line of eyeliner and apply a light shadow, this will make your lashes stand out. I feel adding a thick line of eyeliner hides my lashes and thats when I go for the false lashes lol.

21982087_A3.jpg

If you are wanting to grow your lashes, I will always recommend coconut oil and castor oil, I did a blog post previously if you want to check out my blog!

Thank you for taking time reading my blog post and I hope this helped you if you are looking for a new mascara. I will only post about items I truly love and would 100% recommend these products.

GLOWISH MAKEUP

Hey Everyone! Today I want to share with you some great products which I have and that I think are great all year round. I want to start off by sharing with you a perfect product which leaves my skin glowing and never fails to disappoint! This is the Charlotte Tilbury Supermodel Body. A great  product to highlight your skin, a great trick for an all over ‘slimmer shimmer’ look. 

supermodel-body-swatch

This products is known to be loved by the Victoria Secret models and also Kim Kardashian. I love wearing this product if I am going on a night out and definatly on HOLIDAY!

1412344338204_Image_galleryImage_image001_png.JPG

Supermodel Body costs £45 which Is on the pricey side but if you dont mind paying a little extra to get that GORGEOUS Glow, then its definatly worth it! I dont use it every day only on special occasions or holiday and only need to apply on areas I want to highlight. I highlight my collar bone, shoulders and my legs. You can apply this on your face too, I apply a little on my nose & cheek bones.

 

 

For my eyeshadow, I have recently been using my ZOEVA Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette. This has many pretty shades that can give you a GLOWISH look!

Screen Shot 2018-01-31 at 16.33.22

These eyeshadows are great qaulity and easy to blend and apply, they are soo smooth and with a blending brush does wonders! If you want that GLOWISH look then I would stick to the browns and shimmers, maybe a hint on the bottom centre red/brown colour to intensify your crease.

Jennifer Lopez Glowish Makeup

Laura Mercier have some gorgeous face Illuminator that gives you the Perfect JLO Glow look which Im really into!

Glowing skin just got made easy thanks to this insanely beautiful powder. Use a fluffy make-up brush to dust the illuminating formula over all raised points including cheek and brow bones and shoulders. The long-lasting powder gives skin the prettiest hint of colour and looks just beautiful on sun-kissed skin. Pop one in your beach bag for a bit of pre-Mojito beauty prep.

 This face illuminator gives such a pretty highlight and you can get a palette of theirs which is designed for all skin tones which are great for makeup artists, but you can buy the indvidual ones if you are only wanting one highlighter!

 

New and improved eyeshadow packaging from KIKO Cosmetics and I love! Kiko cosmetics have been a favourite of mine when it comes to SHIMMER Eyeshadows and with their new-ish range of eyeshadows are making me want to purchase a few! You can check out KIKO Cosmetics by clicking the link. I think their prices are not bad at all. This palette below is £9 which is great considering the packaging is beautiful and the eyeshadows always have great pigment.

Screen Shot 2018-01-31 at 16.49.09.png

Let me know if you can recommened some great products that give that BRONZED GLOW as I am always on the hunt for trying out different products!

Thanks for reading !!
