My vanity make up!


20130428-113501.jpg

I noticed I had put some of my most used products of the moments on my vanity at the moment and thought it would be nice for you guys to see what I’ve been loving wearing lately!

Rimmel Stay Matte powder has been an essential for me for YEARS! I like using it in the translucent colour and it works wonders on your skin! I wouldn’t recommend this colour under the eyes because it turns dark circles ashy but it looks fantastic on the rest of your face!

The first blush I ever bought from MAC was Pink Swoon and I’m in love with this thing! It’s a perfect sheer pink colour to wear lightly or to build up! I think it would look fantastic on ALL skin tones!

My concealer finished and I’ve been using Bobbi Brown corrector in Bisque for the past few days! I love the idea but I have to say it doesn’t work that well on its own as a concealer like I’ve been using! However, I know some people who can use only this and it works perfectly!

When it comes to eyeliner, I’ve been using a little of this Collection Gel Eyeliner on my waterlines (top and bottom) and when I’m wearing fake lashes, I like to use it as winged liner too! It’s a lovely and creamy brown which is so long lasting! Brown has a great lesser impact than black!

We have to keep those luscious lips on! And my favourite thing to use on my lips is Smooch Operator by Soap & Glory! It smells like MAC lipsticks and is so nice and moisturising! I’d love if they made a chap stick version of this for on the go! I’m not a big fan of dipping my London Underground germ infested flea ridden finger in this pot and then on my lips!

My top 10 beauty tips


Starting with good skin, you need to use a face mask! If you don’t use an intensive treatment like a mask on your face at least once a week, your skin will look dull and blotchy thus, making your make up look the same!

20130412-120120.jpg

Also, I always exfoliate my skin! Whether its using a facial brush or my face wash (which comes with scrublets), I feel like exfoliating really helps make your skin look new.. Even if you’re not!

20130412-120209.jpg

Curl your lashes before you go to bed (when you have no make up on), before you apply mascara in the morning and after your mascara is 100% dry! It will really help to change the way your lashes grow and they’ll naturally start to curl!

20130412-120409.jpg

Always use nourishing treatment on your hair.. Even if its once a week. Using conditioner or oiling your hair will really help repair it. If you use heat regularly, you’re basically frying your hair.. Just like you would put a plaster on your skin to let it heal, your hair shouldn’t be treated any different!

20130412-120412.jpg

When shaping your eye brows.. Whether you tweeze, wax, thread or shave, fill them in like you do on a daily basis and then remove the hair around that shape. That way, you won’t over-pluck!

20130412-120620.jpg

Keep lip balms around you! In your pocket, handbag, desk, bedroom, downstairs, upstairs and even in your car! You always need lip balm when you don’t have it so buy a few and delegate them everywhere you hang out cause you can never have too over moisturised lips!

20130412-120624.jpg

With summer coming, most people will be wearing sandals a lot! You don’t have to use a tonne of money to buy a foot scrub or pumice stone! Go into your garden or park and find a brick (carefully smash its face in on the hard ground really subtly and casually) and use one of the pieces to scrub off your dead skin. Alternatively find a rough edged stone!

20130412-121002.jpg

Sometimes when I’m having a really bad day, I like to paint my nails only to notice my nails look chipped and horrible! Pushing your cuticals back with a blunt butter knife or the edge of a nail file will help to show a little more nail and makes your nail varnish and nails look so crisp and neat.. Who knew there was so much nail under those claws?

20130412-121008.jpg

This is gross.. But don’t be afraid to pick! That’s right.. I’m talking about spots! Most spots have heads (a gooey puss filled delicious centre) or a small hole in them! Those are the spots you should pick! Leaving them trapped under your skin makes them bigger and often hurt! Gently squeeze them out and then let your skin do the healing!

20130412-121431.jpg

If you want your teeth to be whiter, try to drink your hot drinks with a straw or before you brush your teeth! As soon as any dark liquid comes in contact with your teeth, it stains them which is a huge no- go in my books! Your smile should look bright and clean just like its essence!

20130412-121421.jpg

If you’re beautiful (which I think everyone is in their own individual way), embrace your natural beauty! I love seeing confident women out and about with little or no make up on without a care in the world! It’s empowering and a breath of fresh air!

Most worn make up products!


20120811-011250.jpg
I thought I’d do a tag which I’ve seen around quite a lot lately ‘Most worn beauty products’! Something which was was originally ‘most worn items’ but I adapted! PersianBabe was the first person I saw do the tag on her YouTube channel: http://m.youtube.com/user/thepersianbabe

I love her! She’s such a nice person and I like the fact she talks about real things and how she genuinely feels about them. It’s like she doesn’t have thousands of subscribers, but just likes chatting away to herself to a camera! Her innocence is so admiring!

Ive divided my tag with two products with one high end and the other low end! So you get a feel for both ends of the spectrum!

Let’s begin the tag!
Favourite eye shadow:

20120811-002848.jpg
Low end is Sleek Au Naturel palette and I’ve swatched my favourite colours! Most of these colours are matte however, there are some gorgeous shimmery colours! As usual.. Sleek has managed to make some colours a bit too chalky such as the buttery yellow at the top and this means it has excessive fallout but generally the colours are gorgeous and you can use this palette day and night!
Too tip* to check the quality of a product, swatch the darkest colour in the palate to check its pigmentation! This gives you some knowledge about how vibrant the colours are and whether they apply the same colour as they appear in the packaging! Just look at that black in the Sleek palette! IT’S ASTONISHING!

The Elizabeth Arden palette is one I got in a gift set but I can’t rave about this product enough! I love the colours! I love the finish! I love the texture! I would never buy eye any shadows that cost more than £6 for 1 shade because of what sleek has done for me (you get 12 colours for £6.49), but this was in a set with loads of other products!

Most worn blusher:

20120811-003353.jpg
The first is actually an eye shadow colour by collection 2000 (now just Collection)! It’s in the colour Viva Vegas 06 and I LOVE IT! It’s a bright vibrant hot pink with purple and blue undertones! This is what got me into purple! It looks fantastic on the cheeks and yes it’s safe to use on cheeks! (Anything you can use on your eyes can be used on cheeks too). It looks great for a pop of colour if used with a heavy hand and gives a gentle flush with a light hand! I think it’s versatile! No matter what colour your skin is, this blush will look amazing on your beautiful face!

Daniel Sandler watercolour blush! This stuff is the weirdest most brilliant thing in the world! Literally the blush is a water.. The blend ability of this blush.. AMAZING! I’ve got some other Daniel Sandler products too but this blows all other blush textures out the water ;) (no pun intended)! It looks amazing! It has a slight sheen to it but nothing major and looks great because it’s a water and so soft! It’s like putting LOVE on your face! I like the sound it makes when applying on your skin.. Is that weird?? I can’t help it! Only downside is.. longevity is RUBBISH! Liquids don’t do well on my skin but it’s quite small so I don’t mind carrying it round for top ups :)

Most worn lip products:

20120811-004256.jpg
The Body Shop lip smackers are amazing! I have always loved Body Shop lip products like the tubs of lip balm (especially strawberry) but I like this more because it’s a tube! The flavour is incredible! My favourite is Pomegranate and especially because it leaves the most amazing red tint to your lips! It’s moisturising and lasts on your lips along time! I get so many compliments when I wear this because it looks good and smells good.. Sorted!

MAC lipsticks.. Need I say more! The shade Angel is no given and is probably one of MAC’s most popular lipsticks! Not least because Kim Kardashian wears it too and naturally, I love anything she wears! This has a lovely creamy formula and I LOVE THE SMELL! It drives me insane because it reminds me of something I used to love as a kid but can’t put my finger on the smell.. Hmmmmm! Anyway.. This shade.. I love it! It’s a rosy pink but not too bright so is very wearable.. Lasts all day.. Looks great!

Most worn bronzer:

20120811-004800.jpg
You cant get more value for money than the Sleek Contour kit and especially because you get two products in one! The contour colour is excellent because it’s not too muddy so for all the pale people out there who don’t want to look orange, it’s definitely the one for you! As well as that.. They have it in three shades.. Light, medium (which I use to darken up a bit) and dark (which could probably could be darker to be honest)! It’s got a fantastic highlighter in it too and I love the shimmer.. Even though I’m not usually keen on shimmery bronzers!

Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel! You knew it was coming! I love using this bronzer with my Real Techniques Contour Brush in the hollows of my cheeks.. BEFORE applying my foundation! Sometimes this can look orange and I don’t want to look Tango’d so this is a method that works for me but this is definitely a must try product! Get a sample if you can because it lasts ages an you can then find an application method which suits you.. And it’s universal for any skin tone.. BONUS!

Most worn nail varnish:

20120811-010248.jpg
I don’t really own high end nail varnishes so I just chose two of my favourites! I love the Maybelline one because it’s such a beautiful colour and lasts for AGES on my nails! I’m quite a hands on person (leave out the dirty jokes ;)), so I like my nail varnishes to last long! This is the perfect pastel link that can be worn in Spring, Summer and even for a light flush of colour in Winter!

The Rimmel colour is one of my favourite reds! It lasts ages on my nails, dries in less than 60 seconds, I find and I think it’s perfect for Autumn, Winter and with a bit of nail art, Summer too!

Most worn foundation:

20120811-010606.jpg
This has to be the best find of the century for me.. BARBARA DALY! You’ve made my life beautiful! This foundation is a moisture foundation and I’m in the shade Almond! I don’t think it has excellent coverage and nor do I think it helps my skin.. But it’s the perfect amount of daily coverage and it’s glides on your skin! It dries on your skin instantly and costs £6! You can’t go wrong with it! She does a few different types but I like the moisture one cause it gives an extra sheen although it dries fairly matte (second picture above shows how semi- matte it is)

Chanel Vita Lumiere Aqua is one of my all time favourite foundations! Although I’ve been matched up to shade 40 (WAY too dark), it’s perfect for when I bronze up a but with some fake tan! I love this foundation because it makes your skin look healthy, feels amazing on the skin, smells good and glides on beautifully! I think the best thing in foundations is when they blend like a dream because it’s used all over your face, so if it doesn’t blend, it’ll look awful!

Always look for samples for sample for high end products! Don’t be afraid to ask! If you’re about to pay £30 for a foundation, you want to make sure it’s worth it! If you’re at a drugstore, test the product! In the UK this is easier as we get testers but in the US, look for reviews on the Internet!

Happy
Make-
Upping
