FOLLOW MY NEW INSTAGRAM @georginalongblog

Hi Everyone, I wanted to share with you some great fragrances I have that are under £20. Fragrances can be expensive and I have been looking for some beautiful smelling fragrance that’s at a reasonable price. I love a musk scent and florals, depending on where I am going, I like to wear more of a heavy musk scent for a night out and for everyday or going abroad I like to use a light floral or fruity scent, this gives a nice fresh feel.

  • Next rouge perfume – £14

Rouge Absolue is a lovely fragrant that I love to wear on a night out or if I’m going out for dinner. The fragrance lasts all day and is perfect to give someone as a gift. I love the packaging as it has that luxurious look. I have the 30ml bottle and has lasted me a while, it all depends on how much product you use. For the price I think this is a great product and would recommend.

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.

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 Get Full Natural Looking Eyebrows

Hi Loves, Today I wanted to share with you a few products that I use to get full natural looking eyebrows. I love making my eyebrows look more fuller as I think it can really change the way you look. I use three products to achieve my brow look and would recommend all the products I am going to tell you about. I hope you can take something from this post and helps you, if you are looking for new brow products.

When it comes to sorting out my brows, I always make sure I pluck any hairs that are in between my brows, but only in the centre no where else. This is because I don’t like to over pluck, I use to get carried away when I was younger and I ended up having hardly no eyebrows left lol. I use castor oil on my brows to help them grow and this also makes your eyebrows thicker which has been a life saver for me!

Everyday I use my Revlon Colorstay Eyebrow Pencil, this is a great pencil to use as its smooth and easily to apply. I have this in the colour Soft Black. I start off by using the brush pulling my eyebrow hairs upwards, this just helps me create the shape I want much easier. I then use the angled tip to define and sculpt my brows.
I would recommend this product as it is good quality and only cost me £6.99.

After applying my Colorstay eyebrow pencil I then go over my brow using Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip brow Pomade in the colour medium brown, using an angle brush from Morphe. This just helps fill out the brows and covering any places I have missed, It also keeps all the products together and lasts through out the day.

The next cosmetic I want to talk about is a peel off, semi-permanent tinted eyebrow product. Once a week I like to apply Maybelline Tattoo Brow to my eyebrows this is great to help create a nice shape for your brows and lasts up to three days. This item cost me £12.99, I have to say for me that is a good price as each application lasts up to three days. I tend to use this the night before if I go out somewhere the next day.

Here are the steps to create your perfect brow!

Step 1:
Clean your brows and apply our Tattoo Brow tinted semi-permanent eyebrows over your existing brow hair. If any mistakes are made or you need to reshape, use a
cotton bud to easily remove your Tattoo Brow before it sets.

Step 2:
Leave your new brows to set for at least 20 minutes.
For super long wear, set the product for up to 2 hours.

Step 3:
Using your fingers to peel off the Brow Tattoo semi-permanent eyebrows by starting at
the inner corner of each brow.
The tint will be revealed underneath, giving you naturally fuller
looking brows.
Please note: To make the most of your long-wear tint, try
to avoid exfoliating or harsh cleansers

Soft Eyes & A Red Lip – Makeup Look

Hi Loves,

Today I wanted to share with you a makeup look which I think is perfect for work or school.

If you fancy changing up your everyday look I think a dark/bright lip colour than what you normally go for is fun idea.

I love using a soft brown eyeshadow when I have a dark lip on just because I don’t want to look too over the top for in the day. But it’s what ever best works for you!!

I love using my Gerard cosmetics lipstick in the colour fire engine. This is such a pretty colour and can really put an outfit together! This lipstick is moisturising and smells lovely.

When wearing a red lip, I think a cut crease eye look is great, it gives you a classy look and is great for all occasions.

I have came across a great eyeshadow which I think will go well with a red lip, it is matte and will give your eyelid a contoured look which will add definition.

This eyeshadow is in the colour bake sale by makeup geek, I swear by this brand as I know I am going to get good quality eyeshadows!

To keep the eyes natural I would just add a mascara, I use my Dior DiorShow. This is a lovely mascara and gives my lashes a nice length.

To add a nice glow I would recommend Becca cosmetics highlighter, this is very popular and this product is on various online beauty websites. I am using Gerard Cosmetics highlighter in the colour grace in the picture above.

It is also suitable for vegans and microwave safe!

I put the mask in the microwave laying flat for 20 Seconds, I waited a few minutes until it cooled down and applied all over my hair and left on for 20 minutes.

Soleil Tan De Chanel – Chanel

Soleil tan deChanelis a great product if you want to look more bronzed. As its winter time I still want to have a gorgeous glow. I recommend this product if you feel the same, you can apply this under your foundation or over the top. I normally apply this over the top and use it as a bronzer. I contour my cheekbones, around the edges of my forehead and jaw line. This makes my face appear more slim which is what I like doing as my face is round/square shaped.

‘A cream-gel bronzer that glides on to leave a velvety finish.Sun-kissed and natural this can be worn either over or under your usual CHANEL foundation’ – Chanel

Screen Shot 2017-12-30 at 19.17.57.png

I have had this product for some time and it still looks brand new, you can get so many wears out of this product. The price of this product is £36.00 which is on the pricy side. As Chanel is a luxury brand it is expected but I have to say this is very long lasting and I won’t need to be buying any more bronzers for a while.

Dior Show Mascara

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
I have recently been using Dior Show Mascara, I have seen this mascara many times when christmas shopping but never picked one up. Luckily when opening my gifts from family this gorgeous mascara appeared, I could not believe it as I have seen this product many times recently when shopping online and going to the shops. As soon as I receive anything beauty related for christmas I have to try the product out.

Big fat chunky, bristly brushes are good for people who want a lot of volume and curl. I would recommend using this product if you are looking for having fuller looking lashes. Dior has said this product will give you a lash extension effect. Here is what Dior has to say about the product;

‘In 2015, Diorshow, the professional Dior Backstage mascara, is being renewed. Its new-generation formula enriched with microfibres optically reproduces the effect of lash extensions used by runway makeup artists.
Its patented AIR-LOCK™ wiper prevents the formula from being in contact with the air, keeping the mascara from drying in the tube, for fresh application, day after day.’

The Mascara colour I am using is PRO BLACK.  Price £25.50 – Click To Purchase

Recently I have had troubles with growing my eyelashes back after having individuals lashes put in, no matter when getting them taken off professionally or myself some of my eyelashes fall out. Thankfully my eyelashes are now back and fuller, I have been applying castor oil on my lashes, it is capable of preventing them from breaking and can help the growth of your eyelashes. I feel that the majority of women purchase a mascara to get fuller/longer lashes, I would highly recommend using castor oil. I will add some links of castor oil I use, It is safe to use around the eyes when applying carefully with a cue tip/cotton bud.
