Bronze and Glow

I❤️ Revolution bronze and highlighting duo Powder. 

The palette features two pans, one bronzer and one highlighter  encased in a mini chocolate bar complete with a mirror. Gives a bronzed glow all year round and finish with the complimenting highlighter. Honestly this is the most amazing bronze and highlighter I have ever used. To be honest I didn’t expect it to be so good! I use this as an eyeshadow as well.

Its easy to blend and its also buildable to create a subtle glow or to create more a stand out glow. The pigmentation is perfect.

5 Beauty hacks

Hi everyone, welcome back

 

img_4772

These five beauty hacks can help cut down your daily beauty routine while still looking your best.

1 – Don’t have time for a full eye shadow routine? Use your bronzer as eye shadow, defining your crease and gently patting it over your eyelids.

2 – To make the eyes seem brighter, use a white eyeliner to line your waterline.

3 –  Use red or orange lipstick to conceal dark circles; Apply the lipstick using a brush under your eye area, then reach for your concealer as normal and apply over the top, blending in with a sponge or your fingers.

4 – Moisturize your lips with a vaseline, this juices up your lips. Next use lip liner and for the final step apply the lipstick… this make the lips looks bigger and healthy …

5 – Dry shampoo leaves hair looking and feeling refreshed without washing. It Absorbs excess oil from the hair, and leaves them looking beautiful and healthy.

 

That’s it from me today, thank you for reading xx

Primark makeup Haul

 

Hi everyone, welcome back

For awhile I didn’t buy makeup from Primark, but I decided to go and look what’s new, I love bronzers and highlighters, so I bought few of them ….

Gold Digger Highlighter –  This is very gold and very shimmery, This highlighter is absolutely INSANE for only £2.50.

Bronzing face & body butter –  It gives the most beautiful and natural dewy golden bronze highlighted look. £2.50

Strobing Highlighter cream – This is really creamy, It applies and fades easily finger but for my part, I prefer to use a brush, I have to say is not the best highlighter but for £2.00 is good… 🙂

Bronze Highlighting stick – This is a beautiful bronze golden glitter. £ 1.50

Contour stick – Contour & Shape Contour Stick. £1.50

May Favourites

Hi everyone, welcome back

May has been a busy month for me, but I like it that way … , I feel like this month has gone so fast … but I’m happy 🙂 because summer is almost here …

It’s time for my monthly favourites again! Here’s what I’ve been loving this month:

lets start with my favourite perfume of the moment CHLOE This fragrance is a feminine, natural & sexy with a Floral/ fruity scent.  This is the longest lasting perfume I have ever tried, it lasts all day.

Next is the Bronzer  Makeup revolution Triple baked Bronzer HOT SUMMER OF LOVE   is a triple baked obsession that I bound to fall in love with! This heavenly baked bronzer has three shades merged together to give skin a natural looking glow with a hint of shimmer.

My next favourite is the Iconic London illuminator  this amazing product looks truly glowing on, each drop is so high pigmented that only need a very little amount per use, I normally add it to my foundation or moisturizer to give me a really glowing skin.

L’OREAL True Match  this to be an incredibly smooth foundation. The texture is so silky when applied to the skin and it really blends so easily. In so many foundations I used I always back to this one….

Last but not least I love the Doucce Lucious lip stain this lipstick is a pigmented liquid formula applies matte, dries fast and last for hours, this is a sample size that came in my subscription box (Birchbox) I found myself using it every day 🙂

I ❤️ Makeup Summer of love Triple Baked Bronzer

Hi everyone, welcome back

 

This is called the Hot summer of love combines three beautiful bronzing shades, high-quality, originally executed design of a package in the form of a heart. Bronzer has a shimer, good in application and shading, perfectly refreshing face.

This is my favourite bronzer at the moment ! This gives me a healthy bronzed glow without looking cakey or orange. Also as it’s a baked formula it blends naturally into the skin and has a subtle luminous effect which I love.

When you swirl the brush around the whole product, you get a beautiful warm rose gold highlight shade, which absolutely complements every skin tone.  It also looks perfect used as eyeshadow …

What is your opinion on this? let me know in the comments below ….
