Christmas/NYE Festive Makeup Tutorial

Wednesday, 31 December 2014

Hey Everyone!

My lateness with uploading this festive makeup tutorial should be a crime! I hope it was worth waiting for. I created this sparkly christmas cranberry and gold makeup look based on what I wore on Christmas day. It is the perfect look to wear for New Years Eve if you're going out (or staying in!) I apologise for the majorly late upload and I hope you all have an amazing new year. Stay safe!

Top 5 Luxury Beauty Christmas Gift Guide

Friday, 19 December 2014

Hey everyone! 

I can't believe it's almost Christmas! Like many others, Christmas is my favourite time of year (along with Halloween) as its a great excuse for spending time with family and watching Christmas themed movies. It's also that time of year where you have to go shopping for all those near and dear - which can be quite a challenge, especially if you've left it a bit last minute. But fear not as I have gathered up all my favourite beauty products that I feel would make a perfect present for any beauty lovers out there.

Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette

I couldn't possibly have a beauty gift guide without including this incredible eyeshadow palette from Urban Decay. This palette is stunning. There is a whole variety of colours and they are so pigmented and pretty. This palette includes your neutrals, smokey colours and some brighter jewel tone shades to suit a day or night look. The palette includes a humongous mirror, eyeshadow brush and fancy packaging.  This is without a doubt my favourite palette at the moment and it would honestly be a godsend to any makeup junkies out there. It currently retails for £42 which is quite a reasonable price for 20 eyeshadows.

Nars Virtual Domination Cheek Palette

This cheek palette has a lot of sparkly pinky shades that are perfect for Christmas. This is one of Nars' best seasonal palettes as it contains a mix of permanent and limited edition shades. The palette includes some blusher shades, contour & bronzer shades as well highlighting blush shades that would suit most skin tones. It costs £45 and it is still available to purchase at Space NK.

Benefit Skincare Gift Set

This is an amazing budget friendly gift set from Benefit. It includes 6 products for only £14.50! Benefit are renowned for their skincare products and this gift set would be perfect for those with dry/normal skin.

MAC Lipstick - Sin (Matte)

A gorgeous matte deep dark red from MAC. This is the most perfect 'fall' lipstick and is such a universally flattering colour. I like to wear this with a neutral or smokey eye and it goes with both looks so well. If you have a friend/sibling or family member that loves their lippies, this is hands down the best deep lipstick colour I've tried. 

Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara Christmas Gift Set*

This is my favourite gift set from the list. It includes a mascara, eye liner pencil and cleanser and it is such great value for the quality. I've been using the mascara non-stop since I got it and I haven't seen my lashes look more long and voluminous as they do with this mascara. I will be doing a full in-depth review on this on my blog or YouTube channel as I'm so impressed with it. A definite must-have for mascara lovers!

I hope you enjoyed this luxury beauty Christmas gift guide. As it's the season to be jolly - House of Fraser are embracing the Christmas spirit with a 12 Days of Christmas offer which will see big beauty names being reduced for the next week and a half from the 24th December. So if you haven't yet bought all your presents, or if you want to enjoy discounted beauty goodies, keep an eye out on the House of Fraser website for more info closer to the time. 

Remember, these beauty products are only discounted for a limited time only so make the most of it and keep your eyes peeled!

I hope you all have an amazing Christmas day and pig out on all the trimmings. I should have a video up on YouTube before Christmas if everything goes to plan so I'll see you then.

Foryou SuperGel Moisturiser for Oily Skin

Friday, 5 December 2014

Hey everyone!

I hope you've all had an amazing week! It's been really busy at work due to the Christmas rush but I've really been enjoying it so far. I'm faced with different (sometimes challenging) people everyday and it's been a real learning experience. 

Today's blog post is a mini review on the SuperGel Moisturiser by Foryou Skincare. I received some samples of this moisturiser at the Bloggers tea party hosted by Nadja and Olivia over a month ago and I have been using this product every night ever since.

Foryou Skincare is a startup company who offer a range of skincare for all skin types. I have the supergel moisturiser for oily skin and it really has improved the condition of my skin.

The moisturiser itself is quite thick and you really do have to work with it to blend it in nicely, but I feel like this allows the product to really melt into the skin. The product itself does an amazing job at providing hydration whilst combating shine. I like to use this moisturiser at night because it can be quite heavy for the day time under makeup. There is no scent to these moisturisers which gets another thumbs up from me and it hasn't made a huge difference to any small blemishes but it noticeably makes my skin smoother and soft, which is fantastic!

Foryou Skincare have a range of other products available on their website if you'd like to check them out and preorder: 

I hope you guys have been enojoying my blog posts instead of my usual YouTube videos lately, I really do need to invest in some good old lighting as it's impossible to film in this depressing London weather! I will hopefully have another video up next week. In the meantime, check out my facebook page here to keep up to date with me :)

Have a lovely weekend xo
