Skincare has always come first for me before makeup and I am conscious to look after my skin (thanks to my mum) but especially as a student, I’d never really looked into what I should be using on my skin, what is best for my skin type etc and had a regimented routine. I’d remove my makeup with a makeup remover, occasionally do a face mask/exfoliating scrub, cleanse then moisturise and that would be me done. Recently however, I was VERY generously gifted some Dermalogica products to try as part of their #skinfluencer programme (which I am still overwhelmed by) and oh my goodness they have changed my whole perspective on skincare. I’ve heard a lot of people say this who are also in the programme but honestly it really is like having a mini facial at home. OBSESSED. You really feel these products are getting down to the nitty gritty not just on the surface of the skin.
If you know me, you’ll know that I’ve always loved my polishes. I remember paining my nails in primary, thinking I was the bees knees with my crackle nail polish. Who else remembers that?!
Especially now I’m at college, my nails are usually painted in some form, (when I have the patience) either with polish, press on ones or gels which I now do myself thanks to the kit I got last Christmas! Thank you mum. So when celebrity nail profession, Roxanne Campell’s email popped in my inbox asking if I wanted to try some samples of her own luxury nail lacquers from the collection and share my thoughts, I was beyond excited. I have picked out three shades perfect for this season and also transiting into the winter months.
Currently, this Autumn I’ve been opting for a very natural look and have been more about letting my skin breathe which I’ve been enjoying. In fact, I think I’ve been going for less than what I did in Summer bizarrely! I have also made a few new product discoveries too! I’ve been opting for a neutral lip, warm eye and matte base whilst keeping bronzed. Ya girl is still living her pale life. All the products I’ve been using and loving are all drugstore too! If you know me, you know I love my drugstore products.
As as drugstore makeup lover, Makeup Revolution is up there as one of my favourite brands along with their new brand Revolution Pro. I have spoken about their products quite a bit on my blog as you may have seen and I continue to love every new product they bring out! I love how they do great quality products for affordable prices so well that anyone has access to good quality makeup! Hello student life.
One product in particular that really wowed the beauty world, including me was their Conceal and Define Concealer that they released quite a few months ago. (see my review here.) Recently the brand dropped a bomb and have brought out this concealer that went viral in foundation form which is just £9. Yep that’s right gals. Finally what we’ve been patiently waiting for! They have also released the concealer in a larger size too! I couldn’t wait to share my opinions on this foundation now I have tested it! I am also including a wear test to really put it to the test. Have Makeup Revolution impressed me yet again?
My Daytime Summer Makeup Look
When it comes to Summer makeup, this year I am ALL about that glow and keeping it simple. With the current heat wave we’ve been having recently in Britain especially, I’ve been tending to opt for a minimal, lightweight look against the heat (and apparently storms!?) and a whole load of setting spray. In today’s post, I thought I would share what has been my go-to makeup routine lately and a full low down of the products I am using to achieve it…! View Post
