Winter Beauty Essentials

It is vital to look after your skin in the winter time, Do you ever feel like your skin is dry around this time of year? I make sure to apply extra moisturiser in the winter time this just helps my skin keep hydrated through out the day. The cream I am currently using is by Beauty Aid, this is great to use if you suffer with eczema, any skin conditions or if you just have sensistive skin.

I got mine online from lookfantastic.com for £22. It is a pricey cream but it is worth it if nothing agrees with your skin.

I would recommend Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil, this is such a lovely oil for your lips to keep them hydrated. I love the Honey one, its taste nice but I dont think your suppose to eat it. Ha Ha 🙂 It is £19 but clarins are now doing a stocking filler deal where you can get a minature version for just £10.

If your thinking of trying it out I would get the stocking filler first. It is great for a Christmas present.

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.

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.

MY TOP 5 FAVOURITE FALSE LASHES

Hello Everyone, Today I wanted to share with you some great false eyelashes that I would recommend. I normally wear false eyelashes if I am going on a night out, a meal or for special occasions. I think they can really make your eyes stand out and can put a whole eye look together. I have a different range of Lashes from natural to full and wispy. Some lashes I have purchased are around £20 and lashes that are little as £4 and are just as good! It all depends on what style you like and what suits you best.

unnamed-4.jpg

My go-to lashes would be Lily Lashes in the style GODDESS. I adore these lashes, they have a nice full wispy effect and are perfect for all eye shapes. I would defiantly use these lashes if I am creating a dramatic glam makeup look. I personally cut my lashes to fit my eye as they can be too long, making my eye appear droopy looking. I make sure to cut the end of the false lashes where the longer hairs are as this blends better with your own lashes. I am wearing the Goddess eyelashes in the featured image on this blog post.

Seen on stars like Khloe Kardashian the Goddess lash is every girls go to daytime lash. If natural glam is your go-to style these lashes are definitely for you. Mimicking a natural lash formation, the Goddess Luxury Mink Lashes accentuate all eye shapes creating a wispy look. The unique criss-cross pattern works to blend seamlessly with your natural hairs for effortlessly flawless beauty. – Lily Lashes

 

Lily lashes are around the £20 mark, If you’re looking for something more cheaper and still great quality I would like to share with you a pair of lashes by the House Of Lashes in the style siren, costing £12. I love these lashes as they are not too full but still give a dramatic look. Perfect lashes if you want to show off your eyeshadow and fit all eye shapes. 100% handmade using human hair so will blend perfectly with your natural lashes!

If your looking for great lashes under £5 then I have found the most lovely lashes, I have purchased many pairs over the last few years and never fail to please me. These lashes are by Red Cherry Lashes in the style WISPY, costing only £4.99! They are super easy to apply and work well with any glue and are bendable. I prefer lashes that are bendable as they are so much easier to apply and I do not have to fuss about trying to stick them down. The lash glue brand I use is Duo, a great glue that dries quickly and keeps the lashes on all day but of course, I do bring the glue out with me just in case, better to be safe than sorry lol.

For more of a natural look, if I do decide to wear lashes in the day, I love Ardell Accent Lashes, these are £4.49 and lashes that I apply to the ends of my own lashes, these create an elongated eye for me and enhance your own lashes showing off the natural beauty of your eyes! I am wearing these lashes shown in the image below.
