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.

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.

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!

How To Plump Your Lips – Get Fuller Lips

Hi Loves, I want to share with you some great tips on how to make your lips look more plumper.
There are many ways you can achieve fuller lips, right at home! Whether its for everyday or special occasions, I always use these beauty tricks when needed.

mouth-1419642_960_720.png

Fuller lips are the most popular beauty feature right now but there are ways to make your lips plumped naturally without injections. I like enhancing my own lips that still appear natural, so if you’re looking to make a small natural difference thats going make your lips stand out a bit more then I have some ideas that may help you.

Lip scrubs

I love using a lip scrub as it exfoliates your lips getting rid of dead skin, making your lips super smooth also using a scrub will help increase blood-flow to your lips giving you a nice natural plumper lip. This is what I use if I’m going on a night out before applying my makeup. Jeffree Star Cosmetics have a lovely lip scrub in flavour candy, its safe if some of the product goes in your mouth but try not to sallow the product. This products smells lovely and does the job. This product is available on BeautyBay for £12.

If you don’t want to splash out some money for a lip scrub there are other ways, like home remedies! You can take your tooth brush and brush your lips in circular motions with some water, this helps increase blood-flow and get rid of dead and rough skin or you can take some sugar. Yes Sugar! This works just as good as a scrub and you can apply some oil with it, I would recommend coconut oil as this can be a good moisturiser and will help the sugar stick to the lips.

If you want to be a bit more adventurous you can take some Cinnamon, if you can take the tingling feeling, you can mix this with an oil also, which help your lips feel smooth and plumped.

Lip Liner

When it comes to makeup, for my lips I like to take a concealer and apply a little on my lips making sure its blended properly using a damp beauty blender this will help you re create your lip line when using a lip liner. I love using a brown, nude lip liner as this will give an illusion of a fuller lip. I would make the cupids bow a tiny bit higher then what they were and then for the sides of my lips I would follow my natural lip line. You don’t want to over line the sides as this will make it very obvious.

I want to share with you some youtube videos to give you a bit more of an idea of what I’m talking about lol. The Lip liner I currently use is MAC Lip Liner in the colour Spice, For lipstick I like using MAC Velvet teddy, Moisturising, Smells gorgeous and it is a beautiful colour!

If you are not into lip liner as much you can use a highlighter and applying a tiny bit on the cupids bow, this will help define your lips and make them stand out more. Even a lip gloss instantly gives you more of a fuller lip!

Lip kits

kylie-cosmetics-lip-kit-dolce-k.jpg

Lip kits are great and can you dont have to worry about finding the right lipstick colour to go with your lip liner and they already come together! You have probably heard of Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits. I have one myself and must say it does the trick giving you a matte fuller lip and is long lasting. What I would recommend when using the lip kit is applying a little vaseline over the top once dried just to give you some moisture as they can be very dry. I do like Jeffree star velour liquid lipstick as they are more moisturising, smell good and cheaper!

GLITTER FACE MASK?!

Hey Everyone! Today I came across a new-ish product that was released in December by Too Faced! I can’t believe that I have only just seen this product. How amazing does it look on the skin!? This is first time I have seen a glitter face mask on the market and I am impressed, What do you guys think?

Too Faced Co Founder & CCO posted an image on his Instagram page with quote

 “I’ve wanted to do a glitter mask for more than 5 years but the science just wasn’t ready. I’m so happy to tell you that Glow Job is almost here! It’s the most amazing radiance boosting and exfoliating peel-off mask I’ve ever used—and it’s infused with REAL glittering gold⭐️. It leaves your skin feeling smooth, soft and makeup ready—and it’s begging for a selfie. #tfglowjob #toofaced “

This product is called Glow Job, A radiance-boosting glitter face mask, infused with real gold?! I suppose this face make is fun to use as well as helping your skin look unreal! I defiantly want to purchase this product as I love trying out different face masks that are on the market. When I purchase this product, I will make sure to do a review for you guys 😀

 The packaging for GlowJob mask is simply gorgeous, sooo pretty! Too Faced are known for having such cute packaging.

d93ce81aa2d6b362a46350a2840d1356

This is on the market for $42 which is about £30.30. I suppose this mask is on the pricey side as you can get pretty cheaper masks out there that are very good and does the job. If you have any recommendations for great face masks please comment below as I would love to hear what masks you use.

I am really into sheet masks at the moment as they are easy to use and keep your face moisturised.

The Brand Star Skin has a great line of sheet masks which are cheaper at £8.50 and you can re-use. The mask showing below is wonderful for people who suffer with having blemishes & visible pores, this can instantly calm redness and relieve irritation.

 

 

 

 

How To Clean Your Makeup Brushes

Screen Shot 2018-01-19 at 19.41.17.png

Hi Everyone, Today I wanted to share with you on how I clean my makeup brushes, I try to do this once a week with the brushes I use everyday. With the brushes I rarely use, I tend to clean them when I know that I have to use them. I love to have my brushes feeling soft, I use to get worried that my brushes would get damaged by cleaning them but it is so important to sanitise your makeup tools. Especially when using for foundation, this can make your brush become dry and then gradually will make the application more hard to blend and can make your foundation to appear more caked and not so fresh looking. I believe it helps keep breakouts away, makeup brushes can hold bacteria which is not good so trying to avoid germs by cleaning your brushes can help keep those spots away!

Unknown

You can buy products that clean your makeup brushes but if you haven’t got time for that or want to use what you have at home then, I would to share with you how I clean my brushes at home.

  EASY … EASY … EASY 

I would suggest running your brushes under lukewarm water making sure you are getting most of the product off. Then I would fill a bowel with Lukewarm water and squirt some shampoo into the water, I personally like to use a shampoo with no harsh chemicals. I use Simple – Kind To Hair Shampoo. I would also recommend a gentle shampoo like a baby shampoo.

pout lips

I would gently swirl the brush tip into the water, this will help get all the products out without damaging your brush. If you feel that your brush still has product on it, You can empty the bowel at repeat the steps until you feel like all the makeup is out of the brush.

After this I would run my brush under the tap with lukewarm water again to rinse out the shampoo. I would take a clean flannel or towel, whatever works best for you, gently drying the brushes as I am reshaping the bristles on the brush into place. I would place my brushes on top of the flannel and leaving them to air dry. I like cleaning my brushes at night so I when I wake up they are dry, so no waiting about! .. Happy Days.

If you would like to buy a product that will help scrub your brushes clean, you may heard of these cleansing palettes that are used to deep cleanse your brushes. I myself have not yet purchased one of these, but I am willing too as the reviews are all positive and by what people are saying, it can save you time!!
