August Make Up Favourites!

 Hey Beauties!

Its been a very long time, I know! Apologies for being MIA on the blog, I did lose my blogging mojo but its slowly coming back now 😀

Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to everyone that still came to visit the blog while I was gone.

I really really appreciate it, much love to you all!

Today I am here to share my absolute FAVES of the past month or so. I’ve been doing the same make up look almost everyday with these products, I’m obsessed! 

A little preview of a few of my make up essentials! Little pouch I bought from H&M a little while ago, this goes everywhere with me. Its mainly filled with lip products though.

(Some products in this picture have not been mentioned in the post, if you have any questions you are welcome to leave them in the comments below).

Estee Lauder Double Wear | Spiced Sand & Double Wear Concealer | 09 Medium Warm

This foundation gives me life! I rave about this to absolutely anyone that will talk make up with me. I have gotten so many compliments on my skin because of how good this is. It stays in place all day and still looks fresh after a long day. I recommend using a buffing brush to blend it in flawlessly.

If you like a bright under eye concealer this one is for you. Paired with the Double Wear foundation it is ah-mazing! I love how radiant it is under the eyes, its not to light (in colour) but still looks bright. I like to blend concealer in with a beauty blender which reduces the amount of creasing for me. Set with a finishing powder so it doesn’t crease throughout the day.

Kiko Bronzer Powder | Shade 103 Terracota

Since coming back from my holiday (way back in may) I have been desperately trying to keep the bronzed/sun kissed look going on. This bronzer is the perfect shade, not too orangey for all over bronzing. I use it around the hair line and lightly under my cheek bones (or what should be cheek bones lol) and the chin/neck area.

Kiko Highlighter | 02 Beam of Light  

If your a highlighter lover you NEED this in your make up bag! It is an amazing shade of GLOW (pinky/champagne) that every girl needs in their life. It is so pigmented and looks amazing on! All I can say is you. need. this… NOW! I have converted a few of my girls already and they have also been amazed.

Topshop Glow Stick 

This is an old gem that I fell in love with again! I use this before I use a powder highlight. It gives you an extra oomph in the glow department. I think they have discontinued this shade and sadly the name of it has rubbed off so I couldn’t even tell you what its called 😦 .. BUT Kiko do a very similar shade here. Using this on its own gives you more of a fresh dewy look which I also love when I don’t have much time to get ready.

L – Kiko Lip Liner | Mauve 504 & R – Kiko Lip Gloss Pencil | Natural Pink 08

Kiko is my make up heaven! I never leave without a new lip pencil or lipstick. Everything in there is so affordable and amazing in quality. These are my currant favourite nudes alone and together. Cannot get enough of the nude lip this season. If you haven’t tried any of the lip products you need to do so ASAP! You will not regret it I tell you.

Hope you enjoyed this post and found something new to try out! I would love to see what you’ve been loving in the month of August. Please leave your links down below for me to have a little snoop and perhaps add to my never ending wish list

Until next time lovelies!

Daily Skincare Routine

Hey dolls!

I am back to share my quick morning skin care routine.

I am always in a rush to get ready and out the door in an hour so this routine has never failed me. I have been following this routine for about a year now and it has kept my skin fairly clear and reduced my oily-ness. If you have oily skin I would definitely recommend the La Roche-Posay range! Even though I love trying new skin care products some of these I will always go back to.

1. Face wash | La Roche-Posay

A little goes a long way with this and it lasts for AGES! I find that it combats my oily skin as well as keeping it hydrated and clear. This is one of my holy grail products!

2. Exfoliating cleanser | Lush 


I use this exfoliating cleanser just to give my skin that extra clean feeling in the week. I love the texture of this as it leaves your skin feeling extra fresh and glowy. Occasionally (mainly during winter) I suffer from sensitive dry patches around my nose and mouth. This gets rid of the dead skin as well as giving my skin that extra moisture.

3. Toner | La Roche-Posay


It is important to use a toner after cleansing as it helps close the pores and brings your skin back to its normal pH balance. I love the cooling feeling this gives off on my skin. Although the La Roche Posay products are my fave I probably wouldn’t re-purchase this toner unless it is on offer again. I think any toner would do the same thing.

4. Eye cream | Nip and fab 


In a bid to get rid of my dark circles I purchased this to see if it really worked. I have used it for a good few months now and haven’t noticed a dramatic difference to be honest. But I love how hydrated my under eyes feel while using this. My concealer sits so much better when I use this eye cream so I never skip this step.

5. Serum | Nip and fab


If its good enough for Kylie (Jenner) its good enough for me! I use this serum underneath my moisturizer and I absolutely love it. It helps keep my skin hydrated and supple. It is also a good base before applying your make up. A little tip, if you do suffer from oily skin try treating yourself to some extra hydrating products as this could be the reason your skin produces excess oil.

6. Moisturiser | La Roche-Posay


My favourite MUST HAVE moisturiser of all time! It really does help with my oily t-zone and keep my skin clear of blemishes. A little goes a long way so the tube does last a few months. I love how light but hydrating it is on the skin. Definitely a cream I’ll be re-purchasing over and over again.

What are your favourite skin care products to use everyday?

DIY Hair Mask

Hey girlies,

Last week I decided to treat my hair to a DIY hair mask. I love love love hair masks especially for my bleached blonde hair.

I have a few favourite hair masks already but I really wanted to see if a DIY hair mask would give it an extra boost of goodness.

There are so many DIY hair masks out there, I went for the Banana and Avocado mix.

For extra moisture I added 100% Organic Argan oil.

2015/01/img_0482.jpg

Banana contains vitamins, antitoxins and potassium. This is amazing for dry and brittle hair. It strengthens the hair follicles preventing breakage and split ends. Banana can maintain the hairs natural elasticity and promotes healthy hair growth.

Avocado is loaded with tons of vitamins, natural oils that give your hair lustre and shine. It is also known to nourish the hair and protect it from breakage and split ends.

2015/01/img_0481.jpg

I used one avocado and mushed it together with one banana. I mixed it all together by hand which was a big mistake! You want the mix to be really smooth with no bits in at all because it is a nightmare to get the little bits out. Trust me! I made that mistake already *cries*. My little sister had to help me get the little bits of banana out, bless her!

2015/01/img_0532-0.jpgI added about two table spoons of 100% Organic Argan oil. If you know me you know that I love to try anything that contains argan oil. I use the Argan oil by Organix in my hair while its wet and after i’ve straightened it. I swear by it, it really leaves my hair silky smooth and healthy. The argan oil will help with moisture and nourish your hair. 2015/01/img_0491.jpgHere is my hair after using the mask. I didn’t notice the results until after I blow-dried and styled my hair. My hair felt strong and soft and the same time. One thing I would do differently is proportion control. I think I would add more argan oil and less banana to get extra noticeable moisture. I will try other masks and find a perfect one for my hair. Hope you found this helpful.
