Makeup doesn't need to be difficult or complicated and I find most women stress about how to apply makeup. You don't need to have 5 shades in your smokey eye if you don't want to. It can be as easy as using one product and a couple of makeup brushes and you are good to go. In this post I chat about a super easy smokey eye using Stila Cosmetics. If you haven't had a chance to check out the Stila Shimmer and Glow or Glitter and Glow liquid eyeshadows you are missing out.
It's that time of the year where the festive season is almost here and you most likley stuck in the office with piles of work trying to get everything done. Everyone I have been chatting to is over stressed and over worked. So I decided to write a quick post on a great glowing makeup combo I like to use to add a glow to my complexion especially when I am in need of a lift. We often get tired and our skin starts to look a little dull and makeup is a great way to give it a lift. Of course remember good skincare too!!!
Christmas is almost here and as always The Body Shop have an array of amazing goodies to treat your loved ones this year. I got to attend the launch and loved what I saw. A key focus this year is The Body Shop Christmas Makeup Collection which I am sharing with you in this post. Its a mix of liquid eyeshadows, gorgeous lipsticks and a glitter spray for your hair and body to add that extra glow. Of course my daughter is all over the Pink Sparkley hair glitter she is 9 after all so think this will be going in her stocking.
Thanks to Ruby Box and of course Environ I got to out these gorgeous skincare products to the test the past month. Its all about focus on flawless skin with Environ skincare. By using Environ your skin will be thanking you for it and of course your skin's texture and hydration will massively improve. In this post I chat about 3 of the products that are actually add ons to the Vitamin A range which is the corner stone of the brand. The Focus Moisture + and Focus Care Youth + that really focus on hydration and anti ageing. Its really a toss up of which is my favourite product its a close tie between the Vita Antioxidant Oil Capsules and the Revival Masque. My skin is feeling so amazing at the moment that I have actually incorporated the Vitamin A Environ products into my beauty regime. Plus wait for it!!! One of you lucky readers will WIN all 3 products so keep on reading.
A real wearable trend for SS18 is the bold red lip. Its one that we see time and time again with different twists. Yay for me I have the perfect lipstick for this look that looks so amazing on. This post is all about the bold red lip using the Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint in Uncensored. It applies beautifully and is just a WOW lipstick. After lusting after the lip paint on instagram I decided to invest in one. Definitely worth it.
Elizabeth Arden are well known for their ceramide range of which I truly am a fan. Over the last year I have been super impressed with their skincare and how good my skin feels after use. With that in mind I would like to introduce the Elizabeth Arden Retinol Cermaide Capsules Line Erasing Serum. Another winner from the brand leaving skin feeling and looking great. I have been a massive fan of the Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum and now I am a converted fan of the retinol ceramide capules too. If you haven't tried any of the range yet then you are totally missing out.
Introducing the Keratherapy Smoothing Hair Treatment exclusive to Carlton Hairdressers in SA. If you have heard of hair botox then you will want to know more about these treatments on offer. I have coloured frizzy hair so I tested out the Colour Lock and Smooth Treatment that takes away all the frizziness and locks in the colour into your hair. Its super quick and easy and lasts up 6 weeks and its priced pretty well.
After testing out Avon's foundations I was super keen to try out their mascara. I love when I find a drugstore mascara that I can recommend to my followers without breaking the bank. I got to test out the Avon Mark Big and Extreme Mascara that promises longer and fuller lashes. Did it live up to the hype?
