OCTOBER FAVOURITES


As October is nearly over and i've been absolutely loving so many products this month I though i'd choose a few if my absolute favourites and share them with you!

FAVOURITE SKINCARE:


You've probably seen this cleanser a lot across beauty blogs/youtube/social media, it is VERY popular. I'd never tried it until my best friend told me how amazing it had been for her skin so I thought i'd jump on the wagon and give it a go and I do not regret it! Its a complete dupe for Bioderma's Sensibio H2O Micellar Solution, it's half the price and I actually found this Garnier one so much nicer!

FAVOURITE FOUNDATION:


This product is also all over the make up world at the minute and I can really tell why! It's not the cheapest foundation but if you're looking to spend a bit more this foundation is fab! It's oil free which is perfect for normal/combination skin. I'd say its a medium to full coverage but it's so natural it just looks like you're skin is flawless, would definitely recommend!

FAVOURITE LIPSTICK:


I've been so excited for this time of year purely so I can wear this lipstick more. This colour is gorgeous, it's so perfect for autumn time and being Mac it's really good quality! It's a very deep red with a burgundy tone to it and I honestly think this lipstick would look stunning on anyone. 

FAVOURITE NAIL VARNISH:


I've never used Urban Outfitters nail varnish's before this one but I saw it on Gabriella Lindley's Youtube (AKA Velvet Ghost) and I just couldn't resist the colour! It's a pretty pricey nail varnish but it does last really well on my nails and I hadn't seen one like it before!

FAVOURITE PERFUME:


This Perfume smells like heaven in a bottle, thats the only way I can describe it, it's beautiful. I've even got a tiny 7ml version which stays in my handbag at all times! This perfume is quite sweet/vanilla scented however it is quite a heavy perfume so it lasts a VERY long time. 

FAVOURITE BATH PRODUCT:


I have used a lot of Lush bath bombs but this is my all time fave, not just October! As you can tell from the name it's like bathing in your own little milky way. If you visit the website I have linked to the name you can see a video in full on what the bomb is like. It starts off with a swirl of such vibrant colours and finishes as a deep blue bath full of glitter and the scent is just incredible, it's so relaxing.

RANDOM FAVOURITE:


If you're like me and your hair doesn't grow or your nails are naturally thin then this product is a life saver! I suffer from very low iron levels which means that my hair is in a stage where it is very thin and my nails also are lacking strength, since taking this supplement my friends and family have noticed a difference in the condition of my hair and my nails have grown a lot quicker.

Oils Of Life Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil Review

The Body shop have recently bought out a new Oils Of Life range which varies from oils, creams, gels and lotions so I thought I'd give one of them a try! This oil in particular is made from 99% oils from natural origin including "Black Cumin seed oil from Egypt, Camellia seed oil from China and Rosehip seed oil from Chile".
I have never been a huge fan of facial oils as my skins Normal/Combination, I just don't like the way they feel on my skin. This product however has completely changed my mind!

It is a little pricey as it retails at £28 although this product will last a very long time as a little goes a very long way, if you're interested you can find it here. This product is similar to Clarins Blue Orchid Treatment Oil, however I actually prefer this body shop oil.

This facial oil is so lightweight and leaves the skin looking radiant! I apply this product at night so it has plenty of time to work wonders on my skin. I don't use this product every night although whenever I do my skin is always much clearer and more radiant.

I would honestly give this product a 5 out of 5 as i've seen such good results in a short space of time!

Selena Gomez - Same Old Love Inspired Make Up


Don't we all wish we could be as stunning as Selena Gomez. The video to her her new single Same Old Love was released recently and I loved how classy her makeup looked so I decided to give it a go! The eyes are the main feature in this look as she has a very natural eyeshadow with a much more dramatic winged liner which is continued passed the inner corner of her eye. In the video there isn't a clear shot of her makeup so instead I went by this photo she uploaded from the day the video was filmed.


If you haven't seen the music video yet you can check it out here




Lets get onto the products I used;
- First of all Selena's skin is completely flawless so I started off by priming my face with Benefits Porefessional Primer, again as I wanted a flawless finished the foundation I used was my Mac Studio Fix in NW13 and I just buffed this into my skin using the Real Techniques Buffing Brush. 
- Next I used my all time favourite concealer to cover any dark circles under my eyes, this was Mac Pro Longwear in NW20 and I blended this out with a damp Beauty Blender which I'd sprayed with Bodyshop Vitamin C Spritz or you can just use water! 
- I then went in with my Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer in Fair/Neutral on the high points of my face and then blended this with the same damp Beauty Blender.
- Next I grabbed my Real Techniques Powder Brush and just set this all into place with my Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder, mainly focusing on under my eyes to avoid any creasing. 
- Selena's makeup on this occasion was not contoured at all so I just bronzed my face a little bit using my Benefit Hoola Bronzer.
- To put a bit more colour onto my cheeks I used Mac's Blush in Mocha and I just applied this with the Real Techniques Blush Brush.
- Finally for the face makeup I used Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder Highlight 01 on the high points of my face, this highlighter is stunning!

Moving onto the eyes;
- Selena's eyebrows in this video are very natural so I just used Mac's Eyebrow Pencil in Brunette to make mine look a bit fuller, and to finish them off I brushed them upwards with L'oreals Brow Artist Plumper Medium/Dark.
- As always I primed my eyelids with Mac's Soft Ochre.
- I stuck to one palette for this makeup look, The Balm's NUDE'tude. Sultry all over the lid, Selfish in the crease, Snobby blended with Sultry over the lid and finally Sassy under my eye.
- You can clearly see that Selena has a white eyeliner on her water line so I did this with Barry M White Waterproof Eyeliner.
- To create the winged liner I used Collection Extreme 24Hr Felt Tip Liner, this is honestly the cheapest yet most effective eyeliner!
- I'm so useless at applying false lashes so I just went ahead with Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara  to complete the eyes.

- On the lips Selena has a very natural toned gloss, I used Mac's Soar Lipliner to give my lips a slightly deeper colour and just went over this with Dior Ultra Gloss Glow 247.

I am no professional but I had SO much fun creating this look.
HOPE YOU ENJOYED

L'Oreal Paris Brow Artist Plumper Review


This eyebrow product has been circulating social media a lot recently as brows are a HUGE thing at the minute in the make up world, so I thought it was about time I gave it a go! It is available here and only costs £5.99.

I am so impressed with this product, I purchased the Medium/Dark shade as my eyebrows aren't as dark as i'd like them to be and this had saved me from tinting them. 


I first tried it on its own without any other brow products to see what difference it made as I wanted something that was really quick and easy and makes my brows look much fuller than normal. This might just be my new favourite brow gel EVER.


I then applied it over the top of my brow powder and it kept them in place all day long and finishes of my brows so nicely. 

The applicator looks like this:


It's a fairly long wand with a small brush on the tip, this makes it SO easy to apply without it going anywhere but also covering each individual hair. I don't know why I haven't purchased this product sooner and if you haven't already got it I would definitely recommend you get it!!

Beauty Hack: Not So Fake Eyelashes

Do fake eyelashes drive you insane as well? The last time I struggled with the whole eyelash and glue situation was about 9 months ago before I discovered this little trick which has made my life SO much easier and it's so easy to do.

All you need is your mascara - it doesn't matter which brand - and a setting powder.


To start off you just apply one layer of your mascara, the mascara I used for this was Too Faced Better Than Sex.


Then just grab a small eyeshadow brush and pack on a small amount of setting powder all over the lashes, the setting powder I used was Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder.


Your lashes are now ready for a second layer of mascara.


As you can see the lashes are already looking a lot longer/fuller. Then just repeat the process until you are happy with the results.

 

Viola!! Long volumized lashes without the stress of glue and ruining your eye makeup that you've already perfected!
