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!

Lip Product Addicts Tag

Hey lovelies,

I am back with another lip product post with a little twist. This is the “lip product addict” tag (that was a mouthful lol). I hope you enjoy this post. My next post will not be lip product related I promise! I am open to any post suggestions too 🙂

 Here goes..

IMG_3611

1. Favourite balm/treatment?

My favourite lip balm at the moment is by Nivea the vanilla scent, purely for the smell * heart eyes * .. oh, and its moisturizing on the lips!

 2. Best eye-catching red?

 The BEST red has to be Ruby Woo! It looks amazing on anyone and everyone. The perfect red shade for day and night in my opinion.

3. Best luxury and best drug store?

 I don’t even have any “luxury” lip products. A non drugstore lipstick I do have (apart from mac) is a Nars lipstick in the shade Valparaiso, a dark red/berry. This was my go-to berry shade in the winter. It stayed matte and non drying all day too!

Now for drugstore lipsticks I cant decide between the Revlon Matte Colourburst *heart eyes* and the Bourjois Rouge edition velvet lipstick *heart eyes x 2*. They are both amazing in there own ways! You must try them out for yourself girls! The only downfall I would say is the small colour range..hurry up and make more!!

4. Best MAC lipstick?

 Apart from Ruby Woo, my other FAVE is Up the Amp! I just love the purple shade as it goes well with my complexion and looks amazing with a tan. It isn’t your everyday pink or nude but I like to wear it when my outfit is plane and simple. Having a bold lip makes the outfit that much better!

 5. The most disappointing?

 The most disappointing lipstick I have is the Sleek Matte me. I purchased this out of curiosity. I hadn’t heard or seen any reviews so I thought I would give it a go. I picked up a summery coral colour ‘party pink’. I love the packaging though. When I applied this onto the lips it was hard to get a nice solid colour. Every time I swiped the brush over my lips it would take off the previous coat. I didn’t bother with it again after that.

 6. Liner, yes or no?

 I used to wear eyeliner every single day. But now I only use liner on a night out if I can be bothered to perfect the winged look. I’m usually running late on a night out so I give liner a miss.

 7. Best gloss?

I don’t really wear glosses although I am trying to get into them. I love the nude/pastel pink look at the moment. The best gloss I do have is the Clarins instant light natural lip perfecter (another mouthful). Its lovely alone and on top of lipstick.

 8. Something extra?

I think I am starting to get a little obsessed with lip liners. I have one too many nude liners and a few other staple shades. I tend to use the nude/pink colour all over my lips. I love the matte finish it gives and it lasts for hours without drying my lips!

I could talk about lip products for hours! Let me know if you have tried any of these or anything you would recommend 🙂
