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.

Trying out white eyeliner!

Hello Everyone,

Last week I decided to try out white liquid eyeliner, I have noticed it has been a trend on social media and makeup artists are creating beautiful looks. It was a little harder to apply than black eyeliner, you have to apply a few layers as it can look patchy. I created a glitter light smokey eye to go with it. To make the glitter look more pigmented I used Mac Pro fix +! But you can damp a flat eyeshadow brush to get the same effect.

To see more makeup images please check out my Instagram page where I’m posting 24/7 @georginalongmakeup

Lashes are by house of lashes in siren. For my brows I have been using Anastasia dip pomade. Super easy to apply with a angle eyebrow brush.

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💄🎨👄

 

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.

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.

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!
