Sweat proof makeup look

OK lovelies,

So it is hot

☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀

and you want to go out, but you are dreading the whole makeup putting on procedure.

You just do not want your makeup to melt off coz of the humidity and the heat. That is what this blog post is here for. I will try to give you my suggestions/tips on how to achieve a sweatproof makeup look.

Top tips

Keep it simple.

Make sure you use a moisturiser first.

Do not stack loads of stuff on.

I use only concealer to hide spots. If you use a foundation, use something lightweight.

Top your concealer with a powder. That will clog up your pores and reduce the sweating.

Use a waterproof mascara and no budge eye stuff.

Now, because I am also making YouTube videos and trying to lure you into subscribing to my channel, here is my makeup tutorial or better say, get ready with me. Keep in mind I am partially sighted so any makeup look that does not make me look like a clown is a little feat!!

Vlogging time: York, Primark and my 1st white cane

🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

Hi lovelies,

YouTube promo time. I filmed a vlog cause my life is sooooooooooo interesting. What do I show you?

Two hauls 😳😳

A grocery haul and a Primark haul.I love watching what people think about food and seeing what they consume. I get ideas about what I could buy.

My Primark haul was a good one actually (mind my saying!). I got Tees and a really cool makeup bag (I strongly suggest you pick one up if you have the opportunity).

I also bought pressies for my family.

I show you my new lap top/ table tray. I like that as well.

I am using my white cane for the first time. I think that if you are partially sighted like me, you really need to get one! Of course I walk around York which is a lovely place!!

Here is my vlog. Do check it out and subscribe if you wanna hear more from me…..

More vlogs are coming your way this time from Crete, Greece, so stay tuned.

Don’t forget to connect with me somewhere, somehow (check the sidebar for details.

have a nice day/ night.

Chat soon

GRWM using no foundation

Sometimes you just want a quick and easy makeup look. Something that you can apply and be ready in 5 mins. Other times it is just too hot or you are just too lazy and don’t feel like a full face of products. That is why I filmed this video and why I am sharing this post.

I am sharing with you a makeup look that requires no foundation.

Products used

(ummmm what I remember….)

Estee Lauder Doublewear concealer. I love this concealer. It is long lasting and easy to blend into your skin. I also used my SPF which is Clinique city block. I like this sunscreen because it is a little bit tinted, but not much!

I used a Laure Mercier bronzer in 02 and my Becca Opal highlighter. I used my Benefit gold rush blush and on my lips, the Rimmel Stay Matte liquid lippie in Rose Shine.

On the eyes an eyeshadow stick (my faves are the Clinique chubby sticks) and some mascara (currently using L’oreal Paradise).

C’mon makeup brands: you should be more inclusive

So I filmed a video. It explains my situation and my first world problem. Makeup. But imagine. Imagine if you could not see colours. Are you there? Is your vision black and white? Add some grey.

Now pick up the eye shadow. It is called sunset dream. Will you buy it?

That is my issue.

I shared this pic

My tweet said,

When you are colourblind, this is how you roll……

I tagged some makeup brands. Kiko Milano was the only brand that got back to me. At least they replied saying that they will take my feedback into consideration.

C’mon makeup brands. Be aware.

You are supposed to be inclusive.

I tried, but I am just one person and I need help.

You get me. You love makeup like me….

This is my story. This is my video.

Thanks for watching. I hope you can share the video. Maybe even tweet it. Tag a makeup brand.

Thanks for stopping by.

Five Friday Faves

Hi lovelies,

It is Friday (it was when I started writing this) and it is time for my 5 Friday Faves Youtube Video (and a promotional blog post which aims to get you to watch my video and maybe even subscribe to my channel coz I am trying to grow and no one really subs 😩😩). So, enough with the rambling. What are my faves?

🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

Body shop

My Moringa hand cream is so hydrating, lightweight and smells amazing. I 😍 it.

The card factory

I love polka dots. I love pink. I love organisation. I bought a box which is sterdy and very pretty.

Marks and Sparks

The scent of 🌹 🌹🌹 and it is my favourite. I bought the Rose 3 in 1 spray. You can use it on your body, for your room, and linen. I know that sound weird, but I like it and I 💗 the scent.

Primark

I bought a couple of fake flowers from Primark and my friend commented saying how nice they looked. I really like them. Great decor for shelves and stuff.

My Cane

This is a weird one, but I needed a warning cane. I now have one, and my life is much easier!Having a vision impairment is hard. Accepting that you need help is hard. Getting help is great though.

If you want to hear more about my faves, check out my channel. It would be great if you subscribed as well (#beggingforsubbies).

Anyhow, have a lovely weekend. See you in my next post and don’t forget to connect with me somehow, somewhere.
