Soraya Crop Scallop Two Piece

I picked out this Nude two piece as I love two pieces and the scalloped cut on skirts and shorts. I also knew I was going to get a lot of wear out of these pieces of clothing as it has a skirt that will go with just about anything and a cute crop top that will look amazing with black high-waisted jeans.

I paired my two piece with black tights and a small grey bag, It also looks lovely with a black blazer!

You can find this Two Piece here.

This two piece cost £35, which I think is amazing for the quality of the material and how much wear I will get out of it.

Hair Products For Stronger, Healthier Hair | 2015

IMG_2343

After trying out a lot of different shampoo’s and hair masks I have finally found 3 products that have done wonders to my hair. These three products have made my hair look and feel stronger and more thicker.

Around 2 months ago I bleached my hair from black to a reddish brown. This took bleaching my hair 3 times, dying it once and 3 and a half hours of sitting in a chair. After all this my hair as you can imagine was damaged and weak so for the past two months I have used a hair mask once a week.

The other day I got my roots touched up and my hair dresser said how much better my hair looked and felt, this was down to these three products that I can’t live without.

Hair Mask | Aussie 3 Minute Miracle 

‘Our unique formula, with Australian Balm Mint, helps mend split ends and roughened cuticles. It helps transform dry, damaged hair into manageable and shiny locks in just 3 minutes. Australian Balm Mint.This nourishing treatment gets to work fast on damaged hair, repairing and smoothing rough cuticles, restoring manageability and shine.’

The day after I had my hair bleached and dyed I went to Asda and picked up a hair mask. I was recommended this and it has to be the best hair mask I have tried!

Let me just say it smells AMAZING!

I have used Aussie shampoo’s and I loved the smell of those too. I have never tried their hair masks so I didn’t really know what to expect from this mask. After the first use my hair already felt in a better condition and also smelt amazing! After using it for a around 5 weeks now my hair feels so much stronger and looks a lot more healthier.

I like to use it once a week. I run it through my hair making sure all my hair has the product on, then tie my hair up and leave it for a good 10-20 minutes then I rinse it all out.

The only downside of this product is the packaging. It comes in a bottle where you squeeze it to come out like many other hair products but this does not have a lid. Which means it is not ideal for traveling, I travel from my house to my dads and to uni and I like to take this mask with me but it means being extra careful where I put it incase it spills in my bag or case.

You can pick this up in most shops, you can also find it online here. 
This product is £4.99.

Quick & Easy Everyday Makeup | Tutorial

quickneasy

Hello fellow beauty blogger and readers,

I posted a blog post yesterday on this Quick & Easy Makeup Routine look and thought why not film a video for it as I felt confident enough to film a video and to share it on my blog.

Here’s my Quick & Easy Everyday Makeup Tutorial 

I forgot to bring my tripod home from university so my blog has been a little video-less for the past few months. I love making little videos for my blog as I love to film and edit them. I’m no make-up and beauty expert and I am probably doing some things wrong in this video but I enjoyed filming this look and this is how I apply my makeup everyday. So I thought I would share it with you all after this look got a lot of likes.

I’m slowly getting more confident about posting my face all over my blog and I want to do more videos just bare with me as it is quite nerve racking!

Hope you like this little make-up tutorial video and make sure you follow me for more little videos and a lot more blog post!Feel free to follow my blog to keep up to date with all my new blog posts!

Quick & Easy Makeup Routine | 2015

IMG_2373

PicMonkey Collage1

Here’s my ‘Quick & Easy’ Makeup look
When putting on makeup, I like it to be simple and lightweight. I mainly focus on my brows and eyes and only put concealer and powder/ foundation on days I need it most.

Today I went with just some concealer under my eyes, some pressed powder, subtle pink lips and some eyeliner to make my eyes stand out.

My skin is not working with me lately and I have been breaking out a lot more than usual so my skin isn’t perfect but doing face masks and not wearing foundation is helping get rid of them.

Let’s get on with what products I have one my face;

IMG_2398

Clinique | Turnaround Daytime Revitalising Moisturiser

I first like to use a moisturiser, if it is warm outside it is best to put a moisturiser on that has some kind of sun protection. I use the Clinique Turnaround Daytime Revitalising Moisturiser. This is a lightweight moisture that helps hydrate my skin so it doesn’t get dry throughout the day.

This moisturiser also gives your skin a little bit of a glow, which is great if you don’t want to wear foundation.

I got this in a set with some other productions but the bigger tube of this is £30 and you can find it here.

Collection | Long Lasting Perfection Concealer.

Next I go in with my concealer, The concealer I use is the Collection Long Lasting Perfection Concealer.

I use this concealer under my eyes, around my nose and on any blemishes or redness on my face. This also helps brighten under your eyes.

The colour i got matched my skin perfectly and it makes it look like I don’t have any concealer on.

With this production I like to use the Real Techniques Stippling Brush, This just help me make sure the concealer is all nicely blended in to my skin.

I will be doing a separate blog post with my review on this concealer.

This concealer is £4.16 and you can find it here.

Clinique | Instant Lift For Brows

This brow product is £16.00 and you can find it here.

Bourjois Beauty Haul | 2015

Bourjois1

The other day I was in super drug looking for a lipstick as I wanted a nude lip colour or one closer to my lip colour. I came across the Bourjois Rouge Editon Velvet lipstick collection and the shade 07 Nude-ist instantly caught my eye. As there was a 3 for 2 offer on I decided to pick up the lipstick and two other products.

Bourjois | Rouge Edition Velvet 07 Nude-ist

This lipstick colour caught my eye and I fell in love with the shade. I found myself in the super drug store 3 days in a row just swatching this colour on my hand before I gave in and bought it. I must of got on my sisters nerves dragging her in everyday but she eventually convinced me to buy it as it is such a gorgeous shade!

I found this colour to be a ‘your lips but better’ shade, it makes my lips look natural while making them stand out. When applying this to yours lips, it applies nicely and feels smooth. It isn’t cakey looking or drying on the lips which is a bonus.

The brush is a good shape and size and helps to apply the product nicely to your lips as it is not too big or too small.

Overall I am impressed with this lipstick and the shade is such a gorgeous everyday colour.

This lipstick is £8.99 and you can find it here.

Bourjois | 123 Perfect Foundation No51

I chose this foundation over the healthy mix foundation because of the 3 correcting pigments it claims to do.

It has;

Yellow pigments for anti-dark circles
Mauve pigments for anti-dull complexion
Green pigments for anti-redness

When I got home, I applied it to my face with my Real Techniques Stippling brush and found it blended quick and easy.
It helped to reduce the redness on my cheeks and also reduce my under eye bags.

The colour I picked for my skin tone was N051 Light Vanilla and it matched my skin perfectly. You couldn’t tell I had foundation on. I then used powder to help set it into place.

It was a hot day when I tried this out and I applied it around 3 in the afternoon and didn’t take it off until around 9 and it lasted until I took it off and it did not smudge or run. I was surprised with this and knew I could wear it in the hot weather and not have it slowly move down my face throughout the day.

The coverage of this foundation is light to medium and you can build it up or leave it light if you don’t like to layer it on and prefer a more natural look.

Overall I am pleased with this foundation as it ticks all the right boxes.

This foundation is £10.99 and you can find it here.

Bourjois | Mega Liner Ultra Black

This product I picked up because I needed a new eyeliner and because there was an offer on this product would be free. I decided to pick this one up as the tip was angled and I thought it would be good for winged liner because thats how I wear my eyeliner.

When using this I actually found out it is good if you just want to line your eyes. The angled tip on the other hand made the eyeliner come out a bit thicker then it would with a tipped end. I also found it harder to create the winged end as the angled tip made it a little more difficult to fill it in.

This is a good eyeliner to just line your eyes with but not if you want to create the winged eyeliner look as the eyeliner tip is just a bit too big. I also think it is the way you apply the eyeliner and how hard you press down.

This eyeliner is £7.49 and you can find it here.

What’s your favourite Bourjois product?
