I'm so excited to start this blog and just get it up and running properly. So I'd love to know what kinds of post's you'd like to see/what you'd like to know about me?!
Seeing as this is a beauty blog I'll let you know what kind of make etc I am wearing;
So i started off with moisturizing my face with the Soap and Glory Butter Me Up moisturizer. I then used the Rimmel London Pro Primer, which is a new product for me, I like it but i will definitely be experimenting with different brands etc because I've never used a face primer before so I can't really compare it or say how good it is etc.
I then moved on to my concealer which is the Collection Lasting Perfection one, its raved about so much on Youtube and blogs that I just HAD to try it, and it's brilliant! Such high coverage, easy application and a good colour match. I love it! My foundation which is my favorite at the moment, the Rimmel London Wake Me Up foundation. It comes in a good variety of colours, ( I wear 100 ivory) which matches my skin tone brilliantly, its an easy application, very moisturizing and it definitely brightens up your complexion, even on the worst of days.
Next, I applied my bronzer and contoured my cheek bones. My current favorite is the bourjois chocolate bronzer, it smells delish and it looks great on. Very pigmented and easy to apply. This [articular one has a slight shimmer too, which I like, however I will definitely be looking out for a more matte one. (if you have any suggestions, LET ME KNOW!!) Next I applied my blush which is a new one i picked up last week, its No7 Natural Blush Tint Powder in the colour cool pink, and I really like this, its a pale barbie kind of pink, not to pigmented therefore making it easy to work with and stops you applying too much and having a much more un-natural blush, so I'm really liking this product at the moment. I then added a Mac expert face finish in the colour Soft and Gentel, which is beautiful and definitely gives me the right amount of highlight on my cheek bones, so I love it!
Moving on to my eyes, I started by priming my lids with the Urban Decay original primer potion, which I got free with my naked 3 palette, along with 3 other primers which I'm pretty damn excited to use. This one in particular is brilliant, it helps keep your eye shadow on all day, no smudging and is brilliant with liquid liner.
On my lids I thern started with the colour mooner and blended that into my crease, I topped it with trick, giving it a shimmery finish. To highlight the inner corners of my eye and my brown bone, I used strange which is the lightest colour in the urban decay palette which is beautiful, as they all are!
Eyeliner is my favourite part, I can't go out without it on or i feel naked! Haha, bold eyes are definitely my fave, today I have on the Rimmel London precision felt eyeliner. This is a new product for me, as for the past year i've been LOVING the Soap and Glory Supercat Eyeliner pen, I honestly swear by it. Compared the the Rimmel one, It definetly has a thicker tip compared to Rimmel one, however it lasts all day, no smudges and I just love it!
Today, I'm wearing the Soap and Glory Thick and Fast mascara, I'm not a big fan! its quiet dry when i first purchased it and you do have to layer it a lot for it to become a good consistence, however its still a nice mascara!:) Moving on the eye brows, which is just the Seventeen brows kit which i apply with the real technique detailer brush. And last but not least, LIPS! I currently have the Rimmel London Nude Pink on which I topped with the Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Lip gloss and then that's me DONE!:)
So I hope you enjoyed my first blog post, I realise its hard to see alot of the products in the picture I've included but if you'd like to see swatches/ individual products in more detail then please let me know!
Thankyou for reading this mammoth of an essay, and I hope too see you in my next post!
