I think I may start a new tradition on this blog to offer my lovely readers some beautiful flowers, like I said previously flowers just make everything right. They are never sad, they never are upsetting, they’re always there to lift people’s moods so I therefore I offer you some beautiful flowers that I actually have.. haha. I haven’t done a pure make up blog in a while, so I thought I would focus this one on the foundation ranges that I own.

As usual I have two photos which are linked with the blog I am about to post about, but to be honest this time I could not be bothered to search high and low so I thought I’d post a photo of a beautiful dress and a post which may or may not be true about this post! Back to the subject of the post, I usually purchase my make up online via the ELF website but this time I have gone for MUA and wow they send a lot of bubble wrap but here’s what I bought:

I have finally bought after so many recommendations the MUA nail varnish shade of Natural Days, it’s such a cute and girly nail polish which is great for the Spring, Summer days. I love pastels at the moment and they just go with anything, I have really long nails at the moment and it’s just great to show them off with this shade! So thank you for all the recommendations! You little gems ❤

Please ignore the chipped nail varnish, I had not applied the new nail varnish yet and the lighting was lovely at the time! MUA BB cream, I have read a lot about BB creams, I haven’t honestly tried this yet so I will apply in a few days time when I am feeling better but I have already applied it to my hand (as you do) and its nice and soft to apply, great shade as well which is so hard to find a shade my colour!

MUA LUXE – Power brow, it has two ends as you can see one for the definition of the brow (comes in 3 different shades, a type of thin but hard crayon texture) and the other side is a highlighting colour which is meant to be placed under the brow. I bought this product in the mid brown shade.

MUA brush in L1, I will be using this more for my eyebrows in the thicker section, but then again I could change for apply lipstick – of course will wash after each use you don’t need red brows or brown lips now do we haha!!

If you read my other blogs you would be aware that I am a lover of the matte lipsticks, I have therefore bought Pouty Pink and Scarlet Siren. Great colours in the packaging, great when it first goes onto your skin as you can see in the second photo – the third photo is me just slightly moving my finger over the lipstick. At £1 each I can see why they are a £1, you will be constantly reapplying this lipstick.

So there’s my products that I have bought recently, hope you have enjoyed the post – something quick to read 🙂

Daily Essentials.

I thought I would write about what make up and products I use on a daily basis (or when I can be bothered to wear make up, which at the moment is not that often), hopefully this interests you and if you are interested I also hope that you look into buying some of these products 🙂 – first of all, I would like to apologise for my photos – damn sunshine going in! haha.

These are my bare essentials that I need on a daily basis, my Nair Hair sensitive removal facial cream is a part of my daily life. As I have PCOS I am very wary of extra hair on my face, it can come across as darker than my blonde hair and I hate it! I am forever conscious of this and I found this cream for £1 in poundland, I was surprised when I was buying the same stuff in Superdrug for £5!! That leads me swiftly on to Superdrug, I believe that they are my ultimate favourite drug store, if Soap and Glory was sold here I wouldn’t shop anywhere else. Their facial cleansing wipes in Camomille are just delicious (and no I don’t eat them!) they are a gorgeous scent, make your face feel so fresh afterwards. The cotton wool is always on offer usually 2 for 1 or buy one get one free, which is always the best. Finally my last photo is me thinking, bugger how am I going to put all these in the photos haha!

Facially I use 4 products, I do have other ones that I use but these are my fall to items and the ones that I use the most. Deep Action products again are Superdrug, they have a lovely scent, they both leave your face feeling very smooth and refreshed and of course……. clean. St Ives deep pore cleansing is not only used in the shower when your pores are “open” but also afterwards, I love how although the cream is soft the beads allow for a rough texture to take away all of your dead skin. The last is the Clearasil Superfruit Refreshing Pads, wow these are cold when they go onto your face and it definitely awakens your skin, fresh fruity smell and takes away all of your lovely make up which you have spent ages putting on.

My skin is all over the place (all of the time, proper combination skin going on here!). I found the Look Beauty Skin Fix Kit in again Superdrug and to be honest I was amazed by the cute packaging. I have used it once or twice and it is my backup for getting some extra colour on my cheeks, it includes foundation, concealer and highlighter. Although the brush is not that brilliant it is effective in making sure your skin does look lovely. My favourite favourite concealer product is definitely without a doubt the ELF corrective concealer, the shades are yellow, blue, green and pink and each colour covers all your skin flaws. I am often finding myself using the green and blue to help conceal my beautifully red skin haha!! I highly recommend.

As many other bloggers love it, the Rimmel Stay  Matte pressed powder is just ridiculously good, I have it in the Silky Beige and it just sets your face perfectly. It is not too overpowering, too dusty and it just allows for an oily face person like me to not be so shiny! My only concealer that I use apart from the ELF one shown in previous photo is ELF All Over Stick, it smells great, the coverage is brilliant it comes in all different shades. I for the life of me because my room is a state cannot find my favourite foundation – Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid – which is the best, best for coverage, shade, smoothness etc etc. My second favourite is the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation, it is a bit shiny but I use it for those days I am not too keen on myself and finally the Mayebelline Dream Matte Mousse – delicious.

I really don’t often use blusher, I need to invest in watching more videos as to how to properly apply blusher for those extra chubby cheeks of mine! There are two that I have found B (vegan non animal testing product) – Glowing Shimmer Block Just Peachy and the Look Cheeky Trio. Although the Look product shows you how to do it all, I need someone to do it for me!!

First of all I highly apologise for the photos of this one, but you can clearly see how much I love the product on the left hand side – Elf Eyebrow Kit. Its just the best, its a cream and a powder which combines gives you amazing eyebrows – not to look like a HD brow tart but the still natural look. The second is the W7 Naked Nudes, I kept seeing everyone buy the NAKED Urban Decay and I thought 1. I for one cannot afford that, 2. I need to find a cheap alternative and this is what I found…… it’s perfect.

My favourite mascara of them all – Maybelline Colousal Cat’s Eyes – 1 coat and you’re done, its black, bold and effective! Elf Makeup Remover pen for when your little mistakes happy. Flirty Flick eyeliner pen by Look, is thick, bold and so easy to apply to your eyes and finally my favourite tweezers which I believe I got from Morrisons. The reason in which I have painted it red is because I have two of them, 1 is easier to use than the other and therefore I cant be bothered to keep finding the proper tweezer.

LIPSTICKS LIPSTICKS GET YOUR LIPSTICKS!!! My favourite make up product, 1 – Kate Moss – 107, 2, ELF Lip Exfoliator 3. ELF Moisturising Lipstick and finally Beauty UK lipstick…… there’s the swatch 🙂 enjoy.
