October Favourites

Hi Everyone,

I haven’t posted in forever. Truth is, I am consistent when it comes to my YouTube channel, but I always tend to neglect my blog. I plan to do better though.

I posted a Youtube video with my monthly favourites. I love to watch favourites because you get a sense of what people really like and recommend. At this point, I need to say that I really dislike fave videos that include paid promotions….

Anyway, let’s get down to faves. I am giving you a snippet here and loads of beauty, skincare and random ones in my faves!

Hourglass Universe Palette

I bought it. I love it. It is the only palette I used when travelling. I use all the pans and even use it on my eyes. I have received loads of compliments. The powders are so beautiful you can build the intensity. It is “espensiv” tho

Elemis cleansing balm (rose)

I love this balm. Yes, it is a splurge, but it is so nice and You and I are worth it! It leaves your face nice and soft and does not strip it making it feel dry! I use it as my first step when cleansing!

Mac-Velvet Teddy

I have been using this lippie loads the past month. It is a warm brown lippie. It feels comfy and quite hydrating.

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.

Makeup

I have a little makeup pouch. In it I keep a clinique lippie, my Anthelios sun screen and my Maybelline Age rewind. These are the things that I take with me if I am not planning on going out for drinks and stuff!

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!!
