Review – Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation

Review – Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation

But when my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Pencil ran out, and I didn’t have the money to order a new one, I swallowed my pride and went in search of a good drugstore dupe. A quick online search led me to Maybelline for a similar pencil. And whilst there, I decided to try some other things that had a good reputation, before being drawn to the foundations. Having done most of my makeup shopping online, I was pretty impressed to see a display that talked through each foundation type and told me which one was for each skin type. After a little swatching, I settled on the Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid.

Worth the Hype? The Fenty Beauty Foundation

Worth the Hype? The Fenty Beauty Foundation

Rhianna embraced all skin tones the world over with a huge 40 shade range on her cult foundation, The Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation. Beauty bloggers and vloggers the world over were raving about it. I heard nothing but good things. And people were doing everything in their power to get their hands on it.

A Hidden Concealer Gem? Nip+Fab Have My Back!

A Hidden Concealer Gem? Nip+Fab Have …

I have some seriously deep set and dark circles under my eyes. They are a mix between an indigo blue and a bright, bruisey purple. Lovely! I’ve dedicated my life (or the last year or so…) to finding a concealer with some serious game to cover them up. But it’s been a bit of a lacking experience. The best ones that have been advised to me are the Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer and the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer. But with each being £19, I wasn’t too keen to invest without trying every cheaper option under the sun. When I sampled some of the Nip+Fab Concealer on the back of my hand, I was impressed by the thickness of the formula. I spread a little of my sample under one my eyes, and loved the coverage! My deep set circles aren’t fully concealed, but for £8.95, it’s damn good coverage!

Festivals 2017 – The ‘No Makeup’ Makeup Look

Festivals 2017 – The ‘No Makeup’ Makeup Look

One of the biggest fashion looks I saw at Coachella was the boho look. I’m so happy it’s making a come back! Time for rustic, floral prints, loose fitting dresses, short denim shorts and loose, wavy hair. It’s all about naturalness. The “I woke up like this” vibe. As if you rolled out of bed, selected the first piece of crumpled up clothing from your floordrobe and waltzed out of the front door, glowing and glorious. Except in reality, it’s a carefully calculated look, pairing the right print with the right accessories and the right makeup. But in my opinion, the right makeup is the ‘No Makeup’ Makeup look.

Foundation Techniques: Which Applicator is Best?

Foundation Techniques: Which Applicator is Best?

I’m going to apply foundation onto my face 8 times, because I’m genuinely curious as to which technique comes out on top. I’ll be using 2 foundations; my absolute holy grail foundation (Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Foundation) and a foundation I have several issues with (L’Oreal Infallible 24hr Matte Foundation). I’ll be using four techniques for each; classic finger blending, the beauty blender, brushing with a traditional foundation brush and using an oval brush.

Review: L’Oréal Infallible 24 Hour Matte range

Review: L’Oréal Infallible 24 Hour Matte …

I suppose I have to admit I’m a sucker for advertising; L’Oréal adverts have been popping up on my Facebook for weeks now. Yesterday I gave in and bought the full Infallible range. These products, particularly the foundation and colour correcting palette, are supposedly able to cover any form of imperfection, even tattoos. I don’t have any tattoos to test this on, so I guess I’ll use my face!

Review: e.l.f cosmetics (new makeup haul)

Review: e.l.f cosmetics (new makeup …

e.l.f is a brand that’s had me curious for a while now, so I decided to get a haul of stuff when all of my basics ran out (by that I mean I ran out of foundation). There was also speak of a free gift if you spent over £25, so I was sucked in good and well by that point! e.l.f has come across to me as a luxury brand, so I was pleasantly surprised to find I could get not just a foundation, but also a primer, concealer and felt-tip style eyeliner (which I’ve needed for ages!) for just over £25. When combined with the free gift, the value for money was fantastic!
