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!

Review | Glamglow face masks!

If you haven’t heard about Glamglow products yet, where have you been?

Luckily I am here to give you a little low down on these amazing face masks I have been using lately! I picked up this as a gift set around Christmas time, it was £50 for all three!

I know they’re expensive but I definitely think they are worth the money just as a special pamper treat once in a while. You can buy the smaller jars at £25 for 15ml, which apparently gives you 4 – 5, uses. (I haven’t finished mine so I don’t know how many exactly).

Thirsty Mud, 50ml

The thirsty mud is perfect for de-hydrated skin. I used this on the plane when I went to Hong Kong. You apply this all over your face and let it sink it then let it work its magic. Its an over night treatment so you can wash it off in the morning. It isn’t sticky at all so you wont even notice it on your face while your asleep.

I definitely recommend this mask if you have dry and de-hydrated skin. Even if your skin is oily you can still use this to balance it out. It doesn’t leave you extra oily at all. Your skin is left supple and hydrated after just one use. This one is worth the re-purchase!

Youth Mud, 25ml

This is known as the ‘facial in a jar’. It was created as a quick facial treatment for celebrities before a big event. Now everyone can enjoy that same glowy look with a face mask in just 10 minutes!

It honestly does leave your skin with a lovely glow and soft to touch days after! I love the tingly sensation as you apply the masks, it lets you know that its working magic on your skin. Applying make up after was such a breeze!

Super Mud, 25ml

This is a clearing treatment for all skin concerns! It cleans out the pores and leaves your skin looking very clean and clear!

I bought this with me on holiday as I nearly always break out when I travel. I absolutely love this face mask. It calmed my skin down instantly and left it feeling really soft. I love this mask out of all three of them. Definitely will be re-purchasing this in the 50ml when I run out.

I hope you enjoyed this quick read!
Make sure you try these masks out for yourself and let me know what you think?
