March Favourites

Hey guys,
Iv got my March favourites for you. Iv been using all these products daily without a doubt.

First thing iv been loving is the Garnier Body Summer Body gradual tan, iv been looking a bit pale this winter so as its coming to spring I decided to use some tan to give me some colour. I love this because its a moisturiser too so leaves you skin feeling soft and tanned!

Secondly is the W7 Face Shaper contour and highlight kit. I absolutely love this as it comes with a brush and it the best brush for the product. Its a perfect colour for a contour! Best contour product iv brought! i also like the high lighter its has a few specks of glitter which is beautiful on the skin.

Thirdly is the essence long lasting lipstick in On The Catwalk. I love the essence make-up from Wilkos I really do recommend it, its very affordable too!

Lastly is the Make-up Revolution eye shadow in Good Life, which is a shimmery pale pink/purple iv been wearing this everyday as a smoky eye with eye shadow in MMMM (I will put a blog up about this eye look) I love this!


hope you liked this!

Bath Time!

Hey guys, sorry I haven't posted in a while I've been really ill and revising for some upcoming exams. 
We all like a good bath and pampering session so here is what I use in my bath and on my hair.

First I like to add a bath bomb I used the Zoella fizz bar, which smells lovely. It doesn't turn your bath a bright colour or anything just a bit of a milky colour. 
I then like to apply a face mask, I'm loving the P.S. Love 8 hour deep hydration face mask, it makes my face feel so much better and has also stopped me from breaking out!
 While the face mask is soaking in a like to wash my hair with the V05 nourish my shine shampoo which is my favourite at the minute.
I sometimes like to then go in with the V05 nourish me truly conditioner but recently iv had my hair bleached quite a lot so I decided to buy a deep conditioning hair mask.
 I picked up the OZ deep conditioning moisture mask which is helping my hair a lot!
I also like to comb my hair after that so I use my leobancroft wide-tooth comb as these are best for wet hair.
My favourite body wash at the minute is the Galvin & Galvin double trouble 2 in 1 shampoo and body wash in watermelon!

This is how I like to pamper myself while in the bath if you guys have any recommendations I'd love to hear them!:)

How I Clean My Make-up Brushes.

Hello, hope you guys are ok!
I thought I'd show you how I clean my make-up brushes as get asked how I do it by friends and family alot haha! 
When I wash my brushes I usually do them all at the same time! I normally wash them every 2 weeks sometimes longer, some of my face brushes i do them every few days to get rid of the bacteria.

I start off by filling the sink with lukewarm water, rinsing out all the make-up from you brushes trying not to get too close to where the bristles are glued together as it will wear away the glue. Put a few pumps of anti-bacterial soap or baby shampoo into your hand swirling the brushes around to remove the rest of the make-up. Dip the brushes into the water to get rid of the shampoo. Then wipe the brushes on a towel and re-shape them. I roll up the end of a towel to sit the brushes on so the water runs out of the brushes and not into them. I then leave them near a radiator to dry a bit quicker then they are finished.

It's always nice to have clean brushes!

Beauty Haul/Review!

So after spending most of my money on make-up/beauty products this last month I said I was going to give up spending money on it for the next few weeks as I have enough to last me a life time haha! But then I decided to nip out and ended up in Superdrug & Primark buying more products... so here is what I got:

Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer £6.49 - Apocaliptic. This is a gorgeous purple/pink colour, the apocalips stay on your lips for hours! 

Rimmel Colour Rush Balm £5.99 - Make Me Blush. To say this is a lip balm and not a lip stick they have great pigmentation! They are very moisturising! Also On the plus side it smells and tastes like marshmallows!

Miss Sporty Studio Lash The Miaoww Mascara £3.49 - Black. This mascara is for lengthening and to add volume which it does both it also says to make eyes look wider! Along with it goes the Miss Sporty Studio Lash The Miaoww Eye Liner £2.99 - Black. This eye liner is the felt pen type and is super thin and is so easy to use for beginners like me I have never worn eye liner until now!

BYS Lip Liner Pencil - First Kiss & Grape. These are my favourite lip liners at the moment, they are very creamy and not too hard to apply, they also go very well with my favourite lipsticks at the moment! 

Collection Lasting Perfection Powder £4.19 - Medium. I'm loving this powder on top of my Collection Lasting Perfection foundation! It helps my foundation stay put though out the day.

Vaseline Lip Therapy - Pink Bubbly. I'm loving this and the Queen Bee one at the minute as its winter and my lips are cracking and getting sore from the cold.

Miss Sporty Studio Colour Quattro Eye-shadow - Smoky Brown Eyes. I haven't used this much yet but I'm loving the colours, very pigmented.

Superdrug Eye Lash Curlers £2.24.

 P.S. Love Your Skin 8 Hour Deep Hydration Face Mask £1.50! I absolutely love this face mask its in a clay like formula, It leaves my face looking so soft and fresh. Brilliant product from Primark!

P.S. Love This Cellulose Sponge £1.00. It comes in a pack of two and I just use these to wash my face with a face scrub or to wash of a face mask.

Beauty Formulas Tea Tree Skin Clarifying Blemish Gel. I just use this before I go to bed to get rid of the redness around my spots ready for my make-up in the morning.

How I Cleared My Skin.

As a kid I never really had spots until I started secondary school, I tried everything to get rid of them nothing worked but recently I found some products that work wonders for me! I used to use the T-zone Spot Zapping Gel but my skin got so used to it that it didn't work any more, so these are the products I'm using now:

Clean&Clear Blackhead Clearing Cleanser - I use this mainly on my nose but I do wipe my face with this. It says 'results from day 1' and this is so accurate it works so good. I love it!

T-zone Deep Pore Cleansing Cream Wash - I use this product in the shower on a wet or dry face and rub it in and go over it with my rubber face cleanser from Primark! This makes my face feel so clean and fresh after using it.

T-zone Skin Clearing Face Moisturiser - I use this after the shower all over my face to moisturise my spots and dry areas. My face always feel so soft and healthy with this.

Witch Naturally Clear, Anti-Blemish Redness Relief Moisturiser - I use this before I apply my make up to smooth out the skin and to reduce redness on my face. I love this as it really does work well, The cream is green as green counteracts redness.

Tea Tree Essential Oil 100% Pure - I put a few drops of this on a cotton bud and wipe over my spots it doesn't sting them or hurt. I haven't been using this long but it works wonders!
