Hi Everyone!

I hope you’re all well its been a busy busy week for me , I worked 7 days in a row all 8 hour shifts and late nights , so its nice to have a day off to write a little blog post. This weekend it was my sisters 18th birthday and I was in search for a really good foundation since I wanted to invest in something that was going to make my skin look amazing for the night and also last throughout the night. I decided to takea  trip into Derry and go to the Paddy McGurgan makeup pro store and check out what they had to offer in foundations.

I have quite dry skin so I knew I wanted to try something that wasn’t going to cling to any dry spots or make my skin look worse than it was. I opted for the Makeup Studio Face It Cream Foundation in light beige since it offered that dewy glow to my face but also promised to stay put for those long hours of partying.

The foundation comes in a little pot ( which is super cute and different to what I was used to ) and you’re able to attach any other colours you have together and stack them up! ( which I also found really cool for the aspring makeup artist who needs different colours in their kit) The foundation cost £24.50 which came out at around 29 for me.

I applied my foundation with the real techniques buffing brush , it was recommended to use a duo fibre brush for this foundation but I found I didn’t have much control over it , so decided to change the brush I used and it worked a treat. The girl who colour matched me also said that the foundation would easily last you 6 months since you really don’t need to use all that much to get a full coverage look, and she was totally right!

The foundation applied evenly and naturally it literally looked just like my skin. I was so pleased with this foundation since it really did do what it promised. The foundation lasted all night even after all the dancing and drinking that we did!

I hope you liked this little post , have you tried this product of heard of it? I would love to hear your thoughts below in the comments

August Favourites 2015

cats

Hi everyone!

I’m getting really good with doing favourites the past few months so why not keep up the good work? I don’t have that many beauty favourites this month since I am trying to use up as many products as I can to allow for more new never used before products to enter my collection. I’m thinking on doing an Empties post, would any of you be interested in reading it? so onto the main part of the post… the favourites

Beauty Favourites

1. No.7 skin illuminator: I got ahold of this product through my mum ,she didn’t like the look of it on her skin so she gave it to me.  I never really used illuminators under my foundation but I wanted to start. I picked this up a while back and had starting using it under my base. I love how this makes my skin look dewy and fresh without making me look like an oil slick.

2.La vie est belle Perfume: All I can say is well done Lancome ,amazing perfume! the scent of this is just to die for such a girly scent , I’ve been wearing this every day since I’ve gotten it and have just been enjoying smelling my clothes haha!

3. Witch Hazel Stick: I’ve recently wrote a post on this little wonder , its amazing and does wonders you can read more about it HERE

4.Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponge: I found my love again for this product , I stopped using it a while back because It was absorbing so much of my foundation , but I find its really brilliant for blending out the harsh line between highlighting and contouring.

TV Shows & Movies

1.The Age of Adaline: I adored this movie! Blake Lively is just amazing in this , if you haven’t seen it before i won’t ruin it for you but if you’re into the fantasy side of movies that still have a touch of old time magic then definitely check it out!

2.Ted 2: This movie!!!! I laughed my ass off at this movie , I don’t normally think that sequels can get any better than the originals but this one truly is funny! I watched it recently with my boyfriend and we both couldn’t stop laughing. Sure there is some moments that aren’t too funny but the story line , the concept the writing and over all acting is superb! Watch if you love comedies , Marky mark and Seth McFarlane.

3.Whats Love Got to Do with It:I can’t even put this movie into words, I seen it for the first time a few weeks ago and knew immediately that I needed to add it to my august favourites! My mum is a huge fan of Tina Turner and she sat down to watch this movie one night so I thought I would join her. Such a moving and touching story, I love watching true stories so this was the bees knees for me. If you haven’t seen it before you’re missing out big time!!

Youtubers:

1. GlitterALittle: I’ve been subscribed to Chloe , Or GlitterALittle as she is known on youtube as for about a year now , Its not until recently that I feel her content and editing has been superb , I really enjoy seeing her in my subscription box now as she does funky colourful tutorials and has great techniques.

Others:

GuruGossiper: Probably the most controversial site for youtube gossip and all things gurus. I came across this website a few weeks back and got hooked. I don’t pay much attention to the negative side of it as there really is some negative topics on people , but I love the concept that you can connect to people that don’t normally write comments on youtube and talk in a forum. I think the positive side of gurugossiper doesn’t get too much light since the negative side usually is brought to day light by its controversial topics , but I honestly think that its an amazing concept when it comes to interacting with different people that love the same youtubers as you.

So that’s it for this month , i hope you enjoyed the post , I have a few exciting posts coming up in the next few weeks so keep your eyes peeled.I’m a little MIA on here I know , I’m currently getting my bedroom done so I had to empty EVERYTHING out of it since its getting painted tomorrow.
