There is nothing quite like applying a liptick to enhance my complexion than a bold lipstick. Some of my favourite makeup looks are super simple with a glowing complexion, groomed brows, loads of mascara and a gorgeous lip. Makeup DOESN’T have to be complicated and that’s what I always tell my friends and people I work with. Plus you DON’T have to break the bank with makeup either. So with that in mind I would like to introduce the Revlon Super Matte Lipsticks that really give my complexion a boost and seriously add to making me look fresh and glowing.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
