Makeup Haul & Giveaway

Hello lovelies,

I went to Wilkos the other day and went straight to the Essence stand.

Essence is a brand I discovered when I was in Germany. Very affordable with good quality products.

I had heard a few YouTubers comment on how amazing the metallic eyeyshadows were. My Wilkos had some, so I bought some. Then my friend showed the Roses palette, which she had bought, and of course, I got eyeshadow envy and bought that as well.

I needed a new nail varnish. Tick. And finally, I repurchased my beloved lash princess mascara.

I also picked up a few products from Revlon and Maybelline. Anyways! Where am I going with this? Well, my Youtube channel has a video where I show you all these products and there is also a Giveaway! Open internationally. Ends 25/4. If you want to enter, head over to my channel and watch my video!

Glowy makeup for Glasses

Hi Everyone,

I do not know about you, but I find intricate makeup looks quite hard when you wear glasses. You see, I am partially sighted and colour blind, but I love makeup! That is why my makeup looks are more focused on keeping it simple, blended with a nice lip.

I pay a lot of attention to my base and aim for a glowy, natural look.

Skincare

in order to achieve a lovely look, I get my skin prepped. I use my serums and moisturisers and make sure that my skin is nice and smooth.

Foundation

One of the foundations I have been using quite a lot and love because it is very dewy, is the Nyx Born to Glow foundation. I think this foundation is not getting enough TLC online and if you have not tried it, you really should.

This foundation is a semi thick liquid. Not too runny, but not too thick. It goes on the skin effortlessly and looks like skin. You do not look like you are plasterd. I love it.

Another foundation I have been using and loving, is the Elf CC cream. A CC cream is not exactly a foundation. It has some coverage, but not too much. I think this one works well to correct pigmentation and make your skin look really nice and natural as well.

Out of the two, I think that if you are going for a dewy look, check out the Nyx one, if you want a good coverage CC cream, go for the Elf one. Both are around 10 pounds and have good lasting power. I would say around 8 hours. My skin is quite sensitive, but it has handled both foundations well.

Bronzer and Blusher

Moving on from foundation, I use a powder bronzer (currently using the Hourglass Ambient powder) and then I use blush. I always wear blush. I use my foundation to cover redness and then blush to bring back colour! Ironic, I know.

I keep my eyes simple. I usually use one shade all over the lid.

Lipstick is where I go all cray cray. The bright lip is what I usually go for. Drawing attention to my lips is what I do when I wear my glasses. My favourite lippies are from Max Factor (the Elixir line) and from Clinique (Pop)

Get ready with me: Glowy Look

Some background. I am 45 with redness on my cheeks and some pigmentation. My skin is dry and sensitive. I filmed a glowy get ready with me video on my channel. If that is something you are interested in, please check my channel out and maybe even subscribe to it.

Glossybox yay or nah?

Hi lovelies,

Haven’t written a post in foreva, but today is the day…

I filmed a video with a Glossybox unboxing and I talk you through what was in my October box.

October had an Angel and a Devil box. I got the Angel box.

What’s in it?

Well, you have to watch the video to get a full review, but in my box, I got an eyeshadow palette, a pencil lippie, a face mask (which is really cool), a hot chocolate, an eyeliner and a hmmm can’t remember.

I am paying 13 pounds including post and packaging. I have a referral code you can use and get a discount.my code is in the video’s description box.

This is a monthly subscription box. You do get a few random stuff in it, but always welcomed. You get an email reagrding when the pakage has dispatched, so you are always in the loop and know when to expect your package. Oh!! The products come in a beautiful box you can use for storing bits ad bobs.

I will be holding a Giveaway wit some of the products I haven’t used and won’t be using. That will happen in the November video.

I love getting this box because you get to try new products!!

So, shall you try it? I say yay. A least for a few months!

Till next time lovelies….

July Favourites 😍😍

Hi everyone!

Sooo, I decided to give my YouTuber me a boost by filming better quality videos (because the quality of my videos is why I am stuck on 339 subscribers, not coz I may be boring!!!). Anyhoo, so, I sat in front of my video, got the focus right (or so she thought) and started filming. My July faves are great. My video, not so much 😜.

Sowieeee

So, my background focus is great, crisp, clear. Amazing.

I, on the other hand, am blurry. Not a good look.

But I did share the video and I am giving you guys a short post regarding my faves (products may include affiliate links).

My July faves

I talk about my favourite skincare and makeup.
I usually shop from Superdrug, Boots and M&S when it comes to my beauty and skincare.
So, what on earth did I love?

❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

Skincare

*Formula Jaw and Neck cream (M&S)
This cream has a similar texture to moisture surge. The nice jelly, cooling feeling. I have been using it for about a month now and I do feel the skin under my chin tightening. I have linked a product similar to what I am using because I was not able to find what I have been using. Defo check it out if you are in the market for a nice jaw cream. It is around 15 pounds.

*Rosie Autograph Summer Rose Perfume (Marks and Spencer brand)

OK, I am kinda cheating here, but where would I put a perfume??? I love this perfume. It is a summer rose with a hint of a cucumber-y freshness to it. I love it (my fave perfumes are Chloe love, Escada notes, Clinique aromatics white- just to give you a feel of what I like).

Aveeno Hand cream

This is a great hand cream. It does not sting, it gets absorbed quickly and it does not smell.

Sudocream (baby bum cream)

Random, I know but I just love it. My boyfriend told me to use it when my skin was feeling itchy and it was red. Works great on eczema as well.

Interdental brushes from Boots (or anywhere)

I get food stuck in my teeth (TMI), I know, but I use these little brushes and they are amazing!!!! I love them. I have them all around my house now. I use them instead of floss. If you have never tried them, please check them out!

4Head Balm (great for headaches)

So you know when you have a throbbing headache and your magic trick (paracetamol and coffee) does not work? This is when you should try this product. It is a balm you swipe over wherever you have a headache and it starts tingling. It has helped me in some cases with headaches. I really like it!

🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

Makeup

*Gold Rush Blush by Benefit

An oldie, but a goodie. I use this blush a lot. I love it. It is my summer go to blush. I bought the mini blush and it is great! No meed to buy the full size.

MaxFactor Bewitching Coral

I love this lipstick. So pretty. Loads of compliments. Great for the summer. Amazing texture. Nice, soft, nourishing. I love this line. I have written a blog post about it and you can find it here.

*Clinique Sunkissed Bronzer

I was given this bronzer when I bought a load of other products from Clinique. I really like it. Summery.

I didn’t like the Bionsen Deoderant and the Jelly Pop Lipgloss from E.l.f (will give that another shot though).

For more details and to see my failed attempt at a better quality video, check out my Youtube post.

Thanks for stopping by. Let me know what your faves are.

Till next time….
