I’ve mentioned before in a prior blog post that I have discoloration around my mouth and under my eyes. Those areas are a darker Brown than the rest of my face. The way I hide this is by colour correcting using an orange corrector. My go to corrector is LA Girl Pro Conceal Orange Corrector, however recently it ran out and I only realised on a day I had to go out. I wanted to find an alternative I could use where I could buy it locally on my high street so headed for Superdrug. I’ve heard of people using lipstick so opted to look for a deep orange lipstick. The reason I didn’t look for a Colour Corrector is because the ones I’ve seen in Boots and Superdrug tend to be too light orange for my skin tone. Luckily I found a really good deep Orange Lipstick from Collection for only £2.99 in shade 3 Mango Crush.
I’m a big fan of the Bellepierre brand as the Compact Mineral Foundation is a permanent staple in my make up bag. I have a few other Bellepierre products so today I am going to review two of the Bellepierre blushers. The blushers come in a sifter jar which is convenient so you do not lose too much product, and especially necessary in my opinion as the blushers are loose powders rather than compact.
00When the season changes I like changing my make up so this time I’m starting with my blusher. I prefer deeper shades for colder weather but warmer shades for Spring/Summer. I saw Clinique’s range of Cheek Pop blushers and fell in love with the packaging. The daisy design is so gorgeous and just seems so perfect for the Spring Season. I chose the Shade Berry Pop as it seemed more bold then the other colours so I thought it would work better for deeper skintones.
I am prone to getting an itchy scalp at times so I usually like trying hair masks to soothe it. I saw this mask and found it interesting since you use it inbetween shampoo and conditioner, whereas usually I find you’re meant to apply a mask pre wash or after conditioning. I have not heard of this brand prior to this purchase so I just bought the mask, but the range comes with a Shampoo and Conditioner too.
Estee Lauder is a brand which is known for catering to all skin tones. The Double Wear Foundation range for example has over 30 shades ranging from cool, warm to neutral so there is so much to choose from. I felt unsure about the shade to commit to so fortunately Estee Lauder are happy to provide a sample. They used a device that took three photographs of my face to decide on my shade. I was matched to Bronze 5W1 but they did not have it in stock since its a newer shade so they recommended that I tried Henna 4W3.
I’ve written posts about Kiko products before as I just love this brand so much. They have such a variety of products at such great prices. Today I am writing about 3 products I purchased recently and I’ll start off with the 2 from Kiko which are from its Infinity Eyeshadow range. The eyeshadow colours I picked were shades 262 Mat Green and shade 229 Metalic Golden Camelia.
NYX Cosmetics have a wonderful range of Lipsticks at amazing prices as they are all under £10. I love how affordable the brand is and also the array of colours you can choose from. I always prefer Matte Lipsticks, and the NYX Matte Lipstick range is priced at £6.50. Despite being matte, the lipstick formula does not dry lips out and are highly pigmented so does not require reapplication very often.
With Valentine’s Day coming up I thought I would write a post on my favourite perfumes. I tend to stick with a perfume for long periods of time before changing to a new one, so not all the perfumes are new. The perfumes listed are just my long time favourites! I love softer floral scents so this list is ideal for those of you who prefer a subtle perfume rather than a perfume with a really strong intense scent.
