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.

After attending the launch of the new products for Environ and seeing what results the brand gives I couldn’t wait to try. The Environ Vita-Antioxidant Oil Capsules from the Focus Moisture + range was one of the first products I got busy testing. What I can say so far is that I wake up every morning with super soft glowing skin. They are little capsules of heaven that feel amazing when I massage in and just give my skin a great start to the day.

I have been waiting for Glossier to finally hit SA and ladies you can now get your hands on the Glossier Cloud Paint!!! I spend time each day researching on Instagram and came across an account called The Beauty Co. I am happy to announce that they are not too pricey at R250 each and trust me a little goes a long way. I made the initial mistake of squeezing a little too much out.  I purchased 2 of the shades and the delivery was super efficient and quick. If you love a cream blush then these are definetly worth checking out.

If you haven’t gotten your hands on one of the The Stila Glitter and Glow Liquid Eyeshadows you are missing out. I am truly impressed by how Stila have upped their game with the makeup they have introduced and these well they are just simply gorgeous. They can be worn three ways either apply as a liner, up the crease of the eye or winged out. I also like to use them over a powder eyeshadow using my fingers to add a little sparkle to an eye.

I have been so blessed to work with another gorgeous jewellery brand so thank you Little Black Book PR. Tomas Sabo Jewellery is so beautiful and I got to pick an item for my self and one lucky winner. Its a brand for both men and women that has extraordinary attention to detail with classic to edgy pieces. For the women you can find pieces with semi precious stones with such cool and unique styles I fell totally in love with the brand. Ladies and gentlemen the pieces will cost you a pretty penny but quality always comes at a price.
