Monthly favourites / September

Hi everyone, welcome back, hope all are well, I know we are already in October, I’m a bit late to share the September favourites, but I have been very busy …. These are the products I have use the most in the last few weeks and I really love them …

I Tried a new perfume from Avon Far Away Rebel to be honest I thought I would not like it, but I have been using every day, and I have received many compliments …. this combination opens with a vivid burst of Creme de cassis and fresh orange blossom and finishes with a salted  chocolate and toffee … this is a great fragrance, I really love it ….

My next favourite is the Neutrogena pink grapefruit facial wash This gently cleanses, purifies and invigorates for a fresh and radiant complexion …. The smell is great, it is really good for the morning wash and before bad ….

My favourite eye shadow of this month was the Huda beauty Mauve obsessions  I love the shades and the pigmentation of it … I have a review of this eyeshadow on my blog ….

Anew Reversalist Complete renewal This is a dual eye system That instantly renew the look of the eye area. I highly recommend this product ! This is really amazing 😉

My favoutite lipsticks of the September was the YSL Rouge voulpte shine and Doucce luscious lip stain ….  

Hope you enjoyed my favourites, see you next time xx

5 Beauty hacks

Hi everyone, welcome back

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

PIXI Undercover Crayon Concealer

Hi everyone, welcome back

This is a full coverage corrector, which is infused with peptides to plump lines, contains wild rose to nourish the skin and liquorice root to fade dark circles, all in a convenient crayon. The crayon also promises to conceal, brighten and treat…so basically everything what we need from a concealer.

This works really well to brighten up my eye area and conceal any darkness. I like to use it in a V shape under my eyes using the side of the crayon, not the tip.  It’s great also for covering up blemishes and other little places with redness you want to hide.

  • Infused with peptides to plump lines
  • Wild Rose to nourish
  • Licorice root to fade darkness
  • Waterproof

Blends magically into any skin tone for a brightening effect.

MY CURRENT EVERYDAY MAKEUP ROUTINE

Hi everyone, welcome back

Often I change up my everyday make up routine depending on my skin. Currently though I’ve listed the products below I have using everyday for the last weeks….

First things first I apply primer Maybelline super stay  on my face, this primer is great, gives a fresh makeup look all day.

Next I apply the Max factor Healthy skin Harmony Foundation this foundation leaves a very smooth skin and it last forever.

Then I like to apply Maybelline fit me concealer with Real techniques beauty blender …

Next is my favourite part! contour! bronzer! , I’m in love with the Makeup Revolution Pro HD Powder Contour this contains 8 contour and highlight powders. This pallet is pretty easy to work with … I can do contour, bronzer and highlight, It’s fab….

I also use for highlight the Bronzer bronzing brick, this gives a beautiful glossy finish.

For Setting Powder I use the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder to set my foundation in place. I usually concentrate mostly on my T-zone where I am more likely to get more shine throughout the day.

Then for eyes I use Stila eyeshadow palette I have to say I use this pallet for long long time, and I really like it …

For mascara I received a sample of the Benefit Badgal Bang volumising mascara  and I really like it. It not only makes my lashes look thick, it gives a great amount of length and volume.

Finally onto lips, , I use my favourite mac lipstick of the moment in shade Mocha, for line my lips I like to use the NYX swede matte lip liner … I also have been using the lipstick from Primark Nudes Matte and I’m impressed with it.

So there you have it my current everyday makeup routine, let me know if you use any of the products I have listed or have any products you’d like to recommend to me. I love trying out new makeup.
