What’s in my makeup bag ( summer 2017)

Hi everyone, welcome back

The contents of my makeup bag changes as the season does, so I wanted to share with you what I have been using recently ……

I spend a lot of time away from home, so I always take with me the basic makeup to do my touch-ups during the day

I’m all about the natural makeup look and with the warm weather here I’ve been into items that are easy to apply and effortless to touch up on-the-go.

Lip products are my weakness. I always carry  more than one with me ….

Concealer – Maybelline instant anti age ( Nude)

Powder – NYX HD finishing powder ( Banana)

Brush – Ted backer London (This is the perfect size to have in your makeup bag)

Brows – NYX tinted Brow mascara

Eyeliner – Avon gel eyeliner black

Lip balm – Ted Baker London

Lip liner – NYX lip liner ( SMLL07 Sandstorm)

Lipstick  – lip paint matte ( 209 Nude on fleek ) – my favorite lip product at the moment 

Lipstick – L’Oreal Color Rich ( 214 Violet Saturne )

Perfume – Dolce & Gabana  (This sophisticated and feminine scent is perfect to pop in your makeup bag and can be worn day or night. )

Thanks 😉

Your skin

Hi everyone, welcome back

Beautiful skin is essential for making the most of your looks.Without it, all that carefully apply makeup will either go patchy and blotchy, slide into lines and wrinkles or disappear off your face in a shiny oil mess. the simple true is that most of us don’t have beautiful skin. In fact, we don’t even have so-called ‘normal’ skin, with its plump, shiny texture, radiant glow and minimal breakouts. Instead we have dry bits, oil bits or irritated bits, and that means our skin doesn’t always look or feel as good as it should. But the good news is that you don’t have to put up with this. By knowing what kind of skin you have and how to treat it, you can solve your particular problems.

Tips for oily skin 

  • Only cleanse twice a day.
  • If shine still slips through, blotting paper is great for mopping up excess oil.
  • Ensure all your products – even your makeup – are oil free.
  • if you get painful red spots. a little lavender oil dabbed on the skin will help reduce inflammation in minutes.

Your key products  – Foaming cleanser ; Oil free moisturizer; Blotting papers; spot stick ….

Tips for Dry skin  

  • Only cleanse your skin once at the end of the day. This will remove dirty and grime but will prevent further drying, in the morning a splash of water and some moisturizer are all you need.
  • Exfoliation is essential for dry skin.
  • Never expose your skin to really hot water, it dries out parched skin.
  • Never dry your skin completely. One of the best ways to hydrate dry skin is just to pat it with the towel after washing, then apply moisturizer to seal in that extra moisture.

Your key products – Creamy cleanser; Exfoliating scrub; Rich moisturizer; Facial mist; Moisturizing mask.

All the skin care in the world won’t help if you don’t tackle the factors that destroy your skin.

  • Protect your skin from the sun 
  • Don’t smoke (Is very bad for your skin)
  • Stress affects the skin in numbers of ways ( try not to stress) 
  • Sleep well 
  • Drink at least 2 liters of water per day

Favourite lip liners of the moment

Hi everyone , welcome back

Lip liners are essential to any makeup kit, they help prevent lipstick from bleeding outside the natural line of your lips. They also provide a perfect matte base for your lipstick or lip gloss to bed on top of your lips for extra longevity and coverage.

The NEW way to wear your lip liner is as a matte, all-over colour. With a bit of balm, you’re good to go—no lipstick required.

Most importantly, lip liner can enhance and perfect your lip shape, so that your lips look fuller and/or more even.

 

My favourite lip liners;

  1. NYX matte lip liner – SMLL07 Sandstorm
  2. NYX Lip liner waterproof – SLLP02 Bedrose
  3. L’Oreal – 374 Intense plum 
  4. L’Oreal – 630 Beige 
  5. MUA Intense colour  – caramel nougat 
  6. MAYBELLINE Colorsensational – 132 Sweet pink

NYX Slim Lip liners come in a variety of shades. The buttery, long-wearing lip liner formula goes on easily and resists bleeding.

Loreal lip liner  is so pigmented that one stroke deposits enough colour to cover pigmentation. The texture is exceptionally smooth and creamy.

Mua lip liner they are great to match to your lipstick, or wear alone. All come with a handy sharpener in the lid.

Maybelline lip liner is a  long-lasting lip liners provide a perfect start to your lip look.

These are my favourite of the moment …..What’s your favourite ?

Burberry Weekend Eau De Parfum For Women

Hi everyone , welcome back

I am a perfume person, I love to have a good perfume…. The Burberry weekend EDP  that I am reviewing today is a gift by my husband, and I love it …..

What the product says

A sheer fragrance with top notes of tangerine, tree sap and Reseda plant. Delicate floral heart notes of wild rose, peach blossom, iris and hyacinth, invigorated by a subtle splash of nectarine. The low notes of cedar wood and sandalwood add depth for a relaxed and fresh scent.

Because of this unique combination of fragrance notes, I find this perfume ideal for day wear…..

Burberry weekend EDP comes in a glass bottle that is round in shape. The bottle is transparent so as you have a check on the quantity left. The spray nozzle is easy to use and oozes out the exact required quantity on every push. The cap has the “Burberry” logo engraved on it, which gives it a completely classy look.

Burberry Weekend EDP is love at first sight for me! It is all about fruity-floral fragrance and it is all about feminism & elegance to me. A perfect fragrance for day wear , A must try for those who enjoy such sweet aroma.

I would definitely recommend this fragrance !……

Tips 

How to apply: 
1. For the most smooth finish, exfoliate your lips before applying
