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!

February Wishlist | Make-Up Edition

IMG_1212No matter how much make-up I buy there is always something new on this never ending wishlist! I thought I would show you all what I’m lusting over this month. You might want to add it to your own wishlist if you haven’t already 🙂

1. Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation | £29.50

I have a small sample size of this and I absolutely love it! I cannot wait to get my hands on a full size.

2. Tom Ford Lipstick | £26

The packaging is just everything! Such a luxurious product I think everyone needs something from Tom Ford.

3. Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer | £21.50

After trying out the foundation I have high hopes for the concealer. I have heard a few good reviews so we will have to wait and see.

4. Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick | £23

Another brand we all need a little something from. The colour range is amazing, this classic red is a must have!

5. Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow Palette | £49

I have heard some great reviews on this palette too. I am in need of a good high lighter too.

Review | Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer

Hello lovelies!

I am back with a review on the most raved about concealer by Maybelline. I have heard quite a few positive (and negative) reviews on this concealer so I was excited to try this out myself.

IMG_6133

I picked this up in the shade nude from boots for £7 (they have a 3 for 2 mix and match deal at the moment so go check it out!). There was a lighter shade but from previous experience I didn’t want it to look too obvious or “highlighted” against my skin so I went for the nude. For some reason this product is not on the boots website but they do sell them in boots.

I absolutely love this concealer so much! The consistency, texture and colour is just perfect for my combination skin. Although it doesn’t hide my dark circles completely I think it does a pretty good job. Using a colour corrector before applying the concealer should fix this though, I am still on a hunt for a good one (watch this space!)

I apply this under my eyes in an upside down triangle so it highlights the highest points of my cheekbones. By applying the concealer in this way, it helps blend into your foundation better and gives you a flawless finish. I start with my beauty blender to work this into the skin. If your beauty blender is too wet it can take the concealer away rather then work it in so be careful. I finish with my Real Techniques buffing brush, gently dabbing the rest of the product in. You can also use your fingers to do this.

The only downfall to this product is how messy it gets! I love the packaging and the applicator but you waste so much of the product, without even meaning to. The concealer gets all over the lid when you close it so you have to clean it every time you use it!

Since using this concealer I literally can’t do my make up without it! When I don’t have this on I can definitely tell the difference.

Have you tried this concealer? Let me know what you think, I would love to hear your views or recommendations!
