The Magic Of Makeup Revolution

Hi Guys

Todays post is focusing on one of my new favourite drugstore brands Makeup Revolution.

I want to share with you my incredible pigment findings. Pigments are one of my favourite type of product to use, because not only is the pigment usually incredible, it goes further and lasts longer too (in the tub). So who doesn’t want them? well there are a few downsides of course, pigments are loose unless they’re pressed and that can evidently cause fall down, especially ones with larger glitter particles and finding matte pigments are usually a lot more difficult. 

Makeup Revolution have a huge range of pigments (eye dust) from shimmery black to bright exuberant copper shades to subtle wearable hues. I have to say, the quality and pigmentation are just to die for. (not literally of course) but if you heard they were £1 each, you’d drop your bags are run right?

Well guess what folks… they ARE just £1! The consistency and pigmentation on these little pigments are incredible, one of my favourite things from the range. If you spray a little MAC Fix Plus or even add some eye drops or solution. These little pigments pack a punch! Plus i find the lasting power of these are really good. Again i would suggest an eye primer/concealer like with all eye products but i don’t find myself needing to go back into the crease to re-blend or add more.

Here are a couple swatches of some of the shades. As you can see, even the black is interesting. Antic is a beautiful shimmer coloured flecks will work perfectly for night outs, evening dos, or (my personal favourite) Christmas Parties!

Vitality

This pretty silver/grey shade is perfect again for those evening looks, but with this pigment, it works great as a slight highlight in the inner tear duct when doing either a strong or subtle eye look.

Cautious is a really pretty rose gold, taupe shade which is one of my ultimate favourites in the collection! I love how pigmented it is, how pretty it looks on the eyes and this works great in summer!

Virtuous Is a taupe/purple plum shade which i love because coming into fall time these are going to be some of the colours i reach for. I will complement any plum/maroon makeup looks and give your eye that little pop.

Now as you all may know, i am a huge fan of highlighters and dewy, radiant skin. Well these highlighters at just £3 each are some of my favourites this summer. On swatch these look a little crazy intense, am i right? well in actual fact, when applied with a soft fluffy brush like the Real Techniques – Setting Brush or Blush Brush it looks flawless and gives that perfect glowy appearance! 

The Gold Highlighter – Golden Lights

The Pink Highlighter – Pink Lights

Their palettes are a tricky one, the colours are fabulous and for the price you can’t really complain, but if I’m being really technical the pigmentation isn’t the best. Not with these palettes anyway. One thing i’ve noticed is that when applied on their own, the pigmentation isn’t amazing, but when sprayed with a bit of fix plus or solution spray they are drastically more intense, like with any eyeshadow. The nice thing about these pallets though is that If you are just learning to blend shadows and always feel that you apply way too much, too fast? these are the ones for you, they really help you build the colour and work in that blending, it just takes a little longer.

Okay guys, i know this one was a bit longer, but i wanted to be thorough. So i hope you enjoyed it and that it was at all helpful.

The perfect ‘Grey’ Nail-polish

Hey Guys!

I have always been the type of person who goes for the pastel pale nail colours over the deep vampy purples or bright pinks, because i am generally a very fair person, although i tan quite olive in the summer, i don’t have naturally very strong, long nails and pale pastel shades help to not only give the appearance of longer nails, but also make me look that little bit more tanned. If you watch my channel, youl probably know that I’m pretty obsessed with the colour grey at the moment! Its pretty much all my wardrobe has been until recently.

However, find the perfect grey polish isn’t like finding the perfect grey top. Its damn right impossible. Although there are some really pretty grey/purple shades out there, thats just it, they’re grey/purple, all the polishes I’ve come across have some kind of blue, taupe or purple tinge/undertone to them and thats not what I’ve been after.

so the search continued…

Until finally… i stumbled across the perfect pastel plane old ‘grey’. Thats it, no fussing, no mixture, just grey. Now i know that all grey polished are combined with the odd colours here and there to make it up, but this is the perfect pastel shade, its not too dark either and it last a long time. The only downside with this is that you may need at least 2-3 coats of the stuff to get a proper opaque look, but to be honest, after the amount of searching I’ve been doing, I’m not too bothered!

The shade is Cool Touch by Maybelline

My White Foundation Miracle – Stargazer

Hey Guys!

So todays post is about a foundation that i discovered.

I was looking through my makeup draws the other day and trying to find something that was in-between my usual self, my tanned self, my pale self and everything in between that! I struggled. I am one of those makeup artists that hate to have an obvious mistake when it comes to picking the correct colour, but we’ve all been there! My favourite foundation is the NARS Sheer Glow,  but again, i purchased this so i can apply it when i self tanned. So inevitably, any other time of year i want to use it, it won’t work AT ALL!

So i decided to have a browse through the internet, checking out other peoples blogs, and reviews on white foundations. This is when i came across multiple people raving about the Stargazer White Foundation. 

This foundation is one of the best things I’ve purchased, not only does it work perfectly for mixing with foundations because it is a medium to thick consistency that means you don’t have to use a lot of product in order to see any results (like the MAC face and body) but its for Normal to Dry skin! I HAD to buy!

When this Foundation arrived (which by the way was a lot earlier than expected) I immediately tried it out with my sheer glow. Another amazing thing about this product is that it has very subtle illuminating particles within it that prevent my ‘dewy skin’ foundations from going matte. (which you’ll all probably know i hate). The only downside to this foundation is that the applicator is a lick fiddly, but i can work around that. it would have been better with maybe a pump.

It’s a great foundation and for only £4.49 of amazon, you cannot complain! You can add as little or as much of the white as you want to create the perfect shade for you all year round and I’ve used it nearly every day since!

Face Of The Day – First Blog Post

Hello Everyone!

This is my first ever blog post! Ive been wanting to do this for a while but never really known where to start, or how everything works. I am so used to putting myself into the public eye via Youtube, which for me now, is a comfortable place. I know how it works, i know my content but here, i again have felt that uneasy feeling of the unknown! I have tried a few times here and there in the past to post the odd one or two but they have always never been up to quite those standards i wanted, so they got deleted!

So here we are with my first blog post, and i thought it would be safe to do a ‘Face of The Day’ post, but expect to see all things from Beauty, Hair, Fashion, Food and life on here!

Okay so into the actually post. For my base i have been loving the MAC Face and Body foundation because its so lightweight and sheer but also give that even coverage and a slightly dewy finish (which is you watch my youtube channel, you will know I’m obsessed with). This is in the shade N2 Which for me at this time of year when the suns out and about works fine. Next is my concealer, its no news to you guys that this is now my most loved concealer of the bunch, its so creamy, radiant and lasts such a long time. Its so worth all the hype it gets guys!

For my Highlighters i chose two, NARS Copacabana, and Topshop Glow in Polished. There is just something about Copacabana that when applied either on its own or mixed in with foundation that just gives the most perfect dewy illuminating finish! As For my eyes i opted for a much broken (oops) shadow from L’Oreal, its one of their new collections and i must say its incredible, the buttery consistency right down to the pigmentation is perfect! This is in the shade Nude 200.

All i have on my lips today is MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Shanghai Spice. A really Pretty Pinky, peachy nude shade, it really does resemble to colour of spices.
