The Soap Brows phenomenon is happeining in the UK and after seeing it in action on instagram I got my hands on some too. Lucky for me I got one of my fav models Morgan to bring me one all the way from London. I actually first saw the Soap Brows Kit in action on Nikki Makeup's instagram account. Its all about natural groomed bushy brows that give a gorgeous shape to the whole face.
I got my hands on some of the makeup from the Clarins Sun Kissed Collection and I am loving them. Now you all know I love a good bronzer and this one not only is so pretty but really gorgeous on. I din't get the whole collection but super happy with what I got to play with. I love the tinted primers perfect for summer especially if you are not big on wearing base. As well as the lip oils that seriously hydrate and add a touch of colour to your lips. I have also included in this post the new Clarins Pore Control serum. Purely because it goes hand in hand with summer and prepping skin before you add on any makeup.
After reading a Korean skincare post from fellow bloggers All Dolled Up I decided to test a couple things and see what all the hype is about. Now I am all about any skincare that is hydrating and at the moment my main concern is my under eye area. I find this are gets the most dehydrated esecially when I am tired and thats when the fine lines appear. So on that note I ordered some eye patches from Glow Theory. Due to late delivery they threw in one of their Coconut Milk sheet masks. What I can say after testing these out these products I want to try so many more.
I like to keep my makeup super simple with absolutely no fuss and normally a bright lip. In this post I chat about my every day summer makeup essentials that are key to me looking fresh and my complexion bright. For me the most important element is my skin as long as that looks fresh and dewy everything sort of falls into place. Of course you need a bright lip thrown in there too because that also ensures bright looking skin.
COMPETION CLOSED As you all know I love my skincare because with a good routine skin is healthy therefore makeup application is easy. Masks are always a key priority because without them skin isn't purified. Introducing the Juliette Armand Charcoal Detox Mask from the Elements range a gorgeous mask that leaves skin feeling amazing. Its a clay mask combining activated charcoal that absorbs minerals, toxins and other harmful substances from the skin. It leaves my skin feeling so fresh and smooth I absolutely love it. Plus 1 lucky winner will get one too!!!
For those of you who haven't heard UK brand Revolution Beauty is here in SA. Its a super affordable makeup brand which will literally send you running to Clicks to get your hands on some of the bad boy palettes, highlighters and amazing blushes. Plus for all you vegan makeup fans out there the brand is vegan and cruelty free. Now I haven't tried all their products but I did put one of the eye shadow palettes and highlighter palettes to the test. Super impressed with the pigmentation and how it looks on me. As you can see the colours are super pretty and I am glowing like a princess.
For those of you who suck at applying liner this post will show you the liquid liner beauty hack. Its super easy all you need is a liner, some tape and a makeup mirror so you can see exactly what you are doing. I purchsed the NYX Epic Ink Liner to test out the hack and it worked a treat. Now when it comes to doing liner on models I have no problem doing it free hand. When it comes to myself and with my sinking eyes (happens in your 40's) I do the worst job of it.
Now if you looking for some makeup this season that is really gorgeous and gives that glow you really want then you need to keep reading. I actually discovered The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Tints from watching my fav Nikki Makeup on insta. Literally whatever she has been recommending I have been buying. The tints leave a beautiful dewy seamless finish on your cheeks and look so natural. Super affordable and so easy to use.
Seasons have changed in Cape Town and its definetly time to change our body skincare routine. With that in mind I would like to introduce the gorgeous Ren Moroccan Rose Gold Glow Dry Perfect Oil. Its a dry oil that leaves skin feeling nourished, super soft and glowing. I love my skin to glow whether its my complexion or my body. The body oil is the latest in the Moroccan Rose range and its absolutely divine your skin will be thanking you.
Finally one of my favourite skincare brands has launched their first foundation. Introducing the Filorga Flash Fluid Foundation or known as the Pro Perfection tinted fluid. This foundation promises that flawless bare skin effect which as you can see gives just that. I have been waiting to test the fluid on a model as its way too light for me. Model and instagram queen Jessica Yang was the pertect candidate to test the makeup on. Sadly the Filorga Flash Fluid doesn't come in darker shades so for now its for the fairer skin gals.
