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.

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

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.

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.

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

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!

NYE Makeup Look

I love getting ready for NYE, I have created a look that I think will be great for a night out. For my eyes I have created this gold/green shimmer eyeshadow going into a black smokey eye. I thought to do something different for a change as I am always using the same eyeshadow colours. The gold and green tones made my blue eyes pop and to finish off the eye look I applied some full wispy lashes.

I started off by applying a base colour to my eyelid, this can be any white/creamy tone eyeshadow that you have. I used my  25A Copper Spice morphe palette for this and applied the product using a flat brush. As always I use my MAC Fix + and spray the product on to my brush as this makes the eyeshadow stay on longer and gives more of a pigmented effect. Continuing using my morphe palette I applied a light warm orange/brown eyeshadow using a crease blending brush.

For the centre of the lid I used the Makeup Geek Dirty Martini Eyeshadow, this is a light green colour. I would highly recommend makeup geek eyeshadows, they are known for their great pigmentation and are easily to blend. It is important to keep blending your eyeshadows together, this will give you a smoother look to avoid any harsh lines. I went back to my morphe palette and picked up a slightly darker brown tone to apply into my crease, this will give my eye more definition and over the top of my green eyeshadow I used a gold shimmer eyeshadow, you can use a flat brush or your finger and lightly apply this over the centre of the lid. I then went in with a grey/black tone eyeshadow only applying a little bit to my crease just to put the eye look together. I picked up my blended brush once again and blended every thing out.

To give me a glow on my face I used my Gerard Cosmetics Highlighter in the colour Grace. For foundation I used my born this way foundation by too faced, the reason I used this foundation is because it gives a full coverage which I think is great for a night out as it will last longer and look great in photos. For my Lips I applied Benefit Sugar Bomb Lip Gloss, I adore this product it is really glossy and has a lot of moisture. Plus it is not sticky like some lip glosses you get.

 

To get full wispy lashes, Lily lashes have the best lashes you can get plus you can get 20+ wears out of them, thats very long lasting! I have the lashes ‘Miami’ the popular style and most sold as Kylie Jenner uses these lashes!

‘An ultra-wispy set of false lashes, ideal for achieving an Insta-worthy finish. The Miami lash has been seen on Kylie Jenner on the red carpet over and over. This 3D Mink Lash is the perfect way to gain a seductive finish to your favorite glam moments. Ultra-long, yet incredibly lightweight, these lashes sit seamlessly along the lash-line for a comfortable wear.’ – Lily Lashes
