Go To Daily Makeup

My Daily Makeup and Perfume


Foundation:


So my everyday foundation changes daily really, but I would say these are my two main options

1. 
 step 1: Garnier BB cream - Light  really good for perfecting the skin tone, such as making it all one colour and just blurring the blemishes a bit. 

 step 2: I  feel BB cream gives a really good coverage, but due to having mild acne I do use a concealer with it (not featured in photo but it would be Macs pro-longwear)

 step 3: Then to perfect the BB cream I use Mac mineralised foundation loose. This is an amazing coverage powder foundation, but doesn't look cakey and stays on all day, but you do have to apply with a light hand or it will build up and look thick and now flawless. Not an entirely matte finish, but I enjoy having a little glow. 


2.

So my other option is much easier. (and cheaper i guess)

step 1: Revlon colorstay (I am in the colour 140 Buff) I apply this in 4 sections (cheek 1, cheek 2, forehead, nose/chin) using my beauty blender (the cosmopolitan cheap version you can pick up in super drug) this in one step gives an amazing coverage, I don't set this foundation because I feel like no matter what setting powder I use (from Dior to Rimmel) they all just really seem to cake up on this foundation, but I like the finish of it on its own anyway. 

step 2: Conceal, under eyes: maybelline Fit Me concealer in no. 15 I can't express enough how much I like this concealer (only for under eye though) it brightens and doesn't crease and has really great lasting power. I'm now really tempted to try the foundation, but I haven't found the right colour in stores yet as I feel all of the Super Drugs and Boots I have been to have had a really limitted range, unlike on the website when there are loads of colours. Also this is a drugstore concealer- BONUS. 
For blemishes/ hyper pigmentation: Mac pro-longewear concealer. I do love this concealer, but when its gone, I wont repurchase it. This is because i simply don't feel like its worth the money, neither do i feel that it is that very long-wearing. But people seem to love it? The problem I have with concealers is that the majority of drugstores are either brightening concealers or blemish sticks, but I hate stick concealers, and I already have a brightening concealer I like.

Cheek:




GASP NO MAC!!!- I know, shock right, but I just feel these are the blushes I reach for most.

So these are my three most likely options

1. Benefit Box o' Blush- Dandelion This has forever been my favourite blush, a really nice pink shade with a bit of shimmer. The only thing I feel is inconvenient is the Box/ Packaging, they have changed it to be easier and to have a mirror, but I still feel its an inconvenience in you makeup bag.

2. Rimmel Lasting Finish soft colour blush - 010 Santa rose Do I love this blush or what!!! And its in a tiny little package that you can take anywhere!! It's a really nice and every day nude/peach/rose with a silver shimmer. Really natural and easily wearible. AND ITS DRUGSTORE *celebration dance*

3.Maybelline Dream Touch blush -02 peach This cream blush is really high quality and silkily applied. Super easy to blend and a little goes a long way. A lovely peach colour with gold shimmer coming through. Quick and easy to apply. Drugstore. Enough said. Amazing.

Mascara:



Yes. I am a Maybelline mascara girl. I have tried Bad Gal by benefit and that Dior one everyone went cray cray about, but a picture says a thousand words eh??  I am a strong believer that drugstores own the mascara lead tables.

So 2 options:

1. Maybelline The Falsies Volum' Express Mascara I think you have heard enough about this one

2. Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express Mascara Ditto

Lips:


Four options here, which I am gonna whiiizz through really fast 

1. Benefit Silky-finish Lipstick - Jing-A-Ling- So I managed to pick this up for £3 in the benefit store, yes, that is NOT a typo- I payed £3. On the benefit webbie they are down to £7 but in two benefit stores (not retail stands- stores) they were on sale for £3. I love the Jing-A-Ling colour a pearly natural pink :D

2. Burt's Bees Lip Balm- My all time favourite lip balm. Nuff said.

3. Mac tinted lip conditioner- petting pink SPF 15- good stuff. Lovely tint and glaze it gives. cute little pot smells and tastes like vanilla. Yum.

4. Long named one: Revlon Just bitten kissable colored balm stain- 001 Honey Douce I love this product, leaves a minty feeling on the lips which i love. I actually sheer the colour out, but I love this effect and don't worry, on your lips its a different colour to what it s in the stick/bullet.

Eyes:


Sorry about the bad picture

Go to eyeliner: Rimmel water proof gel liner- black

Go to palette: Rimmel Glam eyes quad- 002 Smokey Brun

Go to all over colour (sometimes used as eyeliner): Benefit creasless eyeshadow- samba-dy loves me. This I also got for three pounds. 

Please not most days I dont wear any eyeshadow or eyeliner, this is what I do when if  I decide to wear  more than just mascara for eye makeup.

Scent:

1. Secret Charm- Victrias secret My last post was about this scent, please read if you want to find out more.

OR

2. Viva la Juicy la Fleur- Juicy Couture Therre is a post to come on this perfume, keep your eyes open 



so these were all my products that I reach for when I wear makeup. Hope you enjoyed

Favourite Victoria's Secret scent.





Hi xx

My favourite part of Victorias Secret is definitely the Perfume/makeup section. All there perfumes and body sprays are amazing!!! So, I thought I'd show you what my favourite one is.

My Favourite is Secret Charm

And it's amazing.




As you can see here, I own the perfume (which I either keep in my school bag or hand bag), the body spray and the body butter. My favourite out of these three products is definitely the body butter as it is so soft and creamy, and the smell stays on all day. I feel with the body spray you have to re-aply in the later hours of the day (thats what the handbag-sized perfume is for). I have already gone through two of the perfume (I'm on my third!!!) and I'm on my second of the body spray. If I'm right I believe the hand-bag perfumes are £10 for 30 ml and the Body spray is £11 for 250ml. The body butter I'm not certain of the price but its probably around the £11-15 mark, for 185g (additional note- a little goes a long way). They just all smell sooooooo good.

Crescent Row- Benefit

Hi everyone xx

I purchased (quite a while ago now) a Benefit Crescent Row mini perfume collection and I thought I'd share my thoughts with you today.

The set was £30 and includes 4x10ml perfumes.
 1. Garden of Good and Eva
 2. Lookin' to Rock Rita
 3. So hooked on Carmella
 4. Laugh with me Leelee

and ERRR ME GERRRDD they are amazing. Here are some snappies I took x

They also have a cute little poem each .


   







Garden of Good and Eva poem:


come away with Eva,
breeze down a lush lane,
she's the fresh rush of splendor,
you can't quite explain.
so vividly vibrant
with a carefree demeanor,
she whirls off to a place
"where grasses are greener."
_______
Top notes: pear, watermelon, ozone accords, muguet
Middle notes: rosebud, jasmine petals, green violet leaves, freesia
Bottom notes: sandalwood, musk, cedarwood
Lookin' to Rock Rita poem: 
Rita's ready to rock
and dressed to thrill,
with a flavor for risks
brilliant dreams to fulfill.
juiced up on extras
and dazzling fashions
a modern-day paradise
"of shake-it-up passions."
_______
Top notes: lemon, coconut, freesia
Middle notes: juicy fig, hyacinth, violet
Bottom notes: sandalwood, brazilian rosewood, vanilla
So hooked on Carmella poem:
when it comes to carmella
don't ask and don't tell
a light touch has admirers
under her spell
her sweet sensuality
no one would guess
so exquisite, enticing...
"an intimate caress."
_____
Top notes: lemon, grapefruit, rhubarb
Middle notes: cyclamen, peony, tiare flower
Bottom notes: vanilla, sandalwood, amber



Laugh with me Lee Lee poem:  


her playful wink
and mischievous smile
the flirtatious side
of her innocent style
no thought or worry
of what's meant to be
first laughter, then love
"... along came LeeLee"
______
Top notes: cassis, melon, citrus.
Middle notes: black violet, lily, jasmine.
Bottom notes: blonde wood, amber, santal.


My favourite of these is "Laugh with me LeeLee", and I have the full size (100ml - £30) but I have actually used it all up, I'm not in a rush to re-purchase as I am currently loving my Viva La Juicy- La Fleur (pictures coming soon). Also if I was to buy another Benefit Perfume, I would definitely purchase Garden of Good and Eva- which I LOVE.

I recommend any of these perfumes, I would also like to mention that they are really good as well as having amazing scents: once sprayed you don't loose the smell immediately- this happens with some Eau de Toilettes, and also there lasting power is really good! I has many compliments when I wore "Laugh with me Lee Lee" as the smell really travelled (a.k.a you didn't have to vigorously sniff my neck/wrist to smell it)

Vaseline review

Bonjour.

So, Vaseline is pretty well known, basically the entire population of the U.K must have owned at least one pot/tin. So being yourselves you must have bought a tin or two, so you know what I'm talking about.

Vaseline is mostly criticised because its not "natural" and has "too many chemicals" or is "too expensive compared to lip balm" but honestly  I LOVE IT. (mainly as lip balm) I've always been a massive fan but haven't really ever experimented with all the different flavours I did once have a crème brûlée flavoured one which I basically ate off my lips whenever I applied it.  SO when I was in Primark and saw this beautiful looking Vaseline tin, I picked it up and got in the half way along the mile-long queue with my bundle of lovely cheap clothing and accessories. Then whilst in boots i just had to pick up the Pink Bubbly!! I thought I'd do a little show and tell :D Please not the Pink Bubbly Vaseline is limited edition and does not come in the Primark Vaseline tin/ trio, i just put it in for fun.....


This is the Crème Brûlée Vaseline 
-Not my picture-





So here are a few photos, The last two photos feature my favourite out of the four. I think that vaseline leaves a really nice silky feeling to the lips. They leave a nice smooth sheen and no product gathering in patches or in corners of the mouth. My favourite is the Vaseline Pink Bubbly as I love the smell (sort of the classic vaseline smell with a hint of lemonade and a spark of champagne), aloe vera is a very close second. I use them mainly for lip balm, but the original lip therapy I sometime put on my cuticles when they are dry/ rough before I got to bed (they become much smoother in the morning- but sometimes a bit greasy)
Highly recommend Vaseline- but I'm pretty sure you have all tried it before
