summer makeup tips and tricks tuesday | Bronzed glowy look

When I think of summer makeup I think of minimal makeup with a glowly flawless finish, especially if its a hot day because you dont want your makeup melting down your face, because I am sure that isn't a great look, so this is my summer makeup tips to ensure that your makeup is looking fresh throughout the day

The first thing is ensuring that you have a good primer, this could make the difference of your makeup staying in place much longer, it can also help your makeup apply smoothly and look flawless.

When it comes to summer think less is more and use lighter makeup on your face, for example ditch the full coverage foundation and opt for a lightweight BB cream or tinted moisturiser with spf, because that will not only protect your skin from the sun, but it also allows your skin to breathe which means that it is less likely to look flakey or patchy.

Remember in the summer you want a natural glow not shine, as this is going to make you look hot and flustered. To overcome the disco ball look carry around blotting papers, as they are easy to travel with, affordable and don't add any extra layers which could look cakey, I would also recommend some sort of ... like the hourglass ambient light powder which I feel are quite expensive but they makeup your skin glow. another similar products is the makeup revolution radiant light palette.

I am not a big fan of waterproof mascara probably because I am to lazy to spend time scrubbing my eyes to get it off, however during the summer waterproof mascara is your best friend, as this will make your mascara last much longer and not smudge down your face.

bronzer is a must have during the warmer summer months, especially bronzer with shimmer so that it adds a natural glow to the face. I would recommend a warm bronzer for summer but not to go overboard and just add to the high points of your face when the sun naturally hits such as forehead, cheekbones and chin, make sure not to cover your whole face in bronzer as this is going to make you look like an umpa lumpa which isn't an attractive look.

My Everyday Makeup Routine - MAC, urban decay, Loreal, benefit and more

Hello beauty lovers I hope you are all doing well, I thought that I would share with you my everyday makeup products and routine, its super easy to achieve and doesn't take too long which is great for all you girlies with a busy lifestyle or even a little monster to look after like me.

Starting off with the face the first thing that I do is moisturise as I do suffer from super dry patches on my face in addition to having oily skin in general. The next thing I apply to my face is my favourite primer and the moment which is the L'Oreal mattifying face primer, this is perfect for those of you who have oily skin and enlarge pores, as I feel that this primer keeps me from looking like a disco ball, but is also smooths out my skin and reduces the look of my pores. I addition to using the L'Oreal primer I also apply a pea size amount of benefit porefessional just when I have enlarge pores to reduce them even more, After doing this it gives me a smooth and hydrating base to slap my face makeup on, which makes it not only look better but also last longer well in my opinion it does.

My top 10 drugstore affordable makeup products | MUA | Rimmel | Maybelline | Loreal | Essence | Seventeen

I am not going to lie to you I love my high end products and even if the quality inst amazing most of them just look so pretty sitting on your vanity, but as a young mom with a two year old child sometimes I have to prioritise other things. Therefore drugstore makeup is a great alternative and sometimes the quality is just as good or even better for a fraction of the price, so I thought that I would share with you my top 10 drugstore makeup products, which I find myself reaching for more than the high end equivalent.

Krystellie Fashion Hair exstensions first impression / review and demo

Ok so lately I have really been wanting longer hair so I decided to buy some extensions, but I didn't want to invest in a pair of expensive extensions as I changed my mind so often and may not use them after two weeks (why am I so indecisive lol). However when scrolling thought Facebook I stumbled upon a page called Krystellie fashion where they were selling hair extensions and currently had a half price sale so after reading some reviews from previous customers I decided to purchase off this website and see if they were worth it.

Eyes on MAC burgundy times 9 palette swatches and review

 I have been eyeing up the eyes on mac palette now for a few weeks now, and on my last shopping trip I decided to buy the burgundy times nine palette even though I am currently on a spending ban I am hoping to buy the purple and amber times nine too (hands over eyes emoji). Anyway back to the palette, it contains nine individual eyeshadow pans with a mixture or matte and shimmer shades, however these eyeshadow are smaller than the normal mac eyeshadow pans but that is reflected in the price which I believe are very reasonable.

You all know me by now and know that I love to find myself some bargains especially when it comes to makeup unless I am buying my mac limited edition collections as that it just a must, I have been loving some great brands lately which are so affordable yet the quality is amazing, for example makeup revolution, Mua cosmetics and elf cosmetics which is now not selling in the UK sadly. Therefore I challenged myself to do a full face makeup look with products costing under £35.

May Favorites - Jaclyn Hill Favorites palette, Essence, Elf, Mua, Makeup Revolution

Lets start off June with my may favourites, I did my spring clean over the last month and yes that meant cleaning out my makeup collection and throwing out makeup that had expired or giving makeup to my sisters that I haven't been reaching towards as it is only going to go out of date, and of course when cleaning up I had found some makeup that hadn't even been used still in its packaging at the back of my makeup draw as well as a makeup that I completely forget I owned, so I have quite a lot of makeup products that I have re discovered and having being loving and using so much this months, so I am going to stop rambling and show you my favourites of this month.
