A natural looking foundation with good coverage and shades to suit all skin tones. It’s a classic product that never goes out of fashion, at least not in my collection.
These two beauties never get much publicity on my blog even though I use them everyday so I thought i’d give them a little spotlight today.

July is over what!? I don’t think I have really stopped this month i’ve been filming on location quite a lot which has been great fun but again early mornings have meant not too much make-up. However I have been loving the Illamasqua Eye Shadow in Stealth which is a gorgeous matte cream colour which really helps to brighten up your eyes especially if it’s layered over a cream base. I have also been in love with the Rimmel Lip Liner in Spice which is a 90’s brown/red nude and very flattering with my pale skin.
I’m still not over my white nail obsession and turned to BarryM for a new one and thought I would try out the Gelly Hi-Shine formula. The lasting power of this with a top coat is insane and it’s super opaque after just one coat! My hair has been very much abused recently and so i’ve been trying to look after it with some styling oil mainly to get rid of the dryness and to tame the flyways, got2b Styling Oil is a really nice product which isn’t too greasy but still gets the job done and really smooths and provides shine to my hair. Lastly in July I was loving Soap&Glory Feel Good Factor which is a facial suncream with an SPF 25 which is amazing, it doesn’t leave your face feeling greasy and protects it from the sun.
What were you loving in the month of July?

Inglot AMC Bronzing Powder|Soap&Glory Glow Job|Illamasqua Hollow.
As much as I love my pale skin it can be hard to find make-up products that suit it, especially contouring products. A lot of the highstreet brands are too orange, or muddy on my skin but I have three in my collection which are great for chiselling out the cheekbones.
Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Hollow – £17.50
If I could only recommend one product it would be the Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Hollow, the main selling point of this is the colour, it’s a gorgeous taupe colour so creates the idea of a shadow on the face instead of a block of orange. It is super creamy and blends easily using either your fingers or a brush – I love applying this with my fingers as I can create a really natural contour.
Inglot AMC Bronzing Powder in 80 – £17.00
If you are more into a powder formula then I love the Inglot Bronzing Powder. It’s a collection of five different shades that can be used individually or altogether which is how I prefer to apply it. It has a very subtle glow to it but still works to contour with but what I love is how natural it looks once applied to the skin. Great pigmentation and lasting power.
Soap&Glory Glow Job – £11.00
This is actually a facial fake tanner but works perfectly as a cream contour, the darkest out of my three choices its great for extreme contouring and warming up of the face. It applies as a white cream but as it is blended – this is best done with your fingers, the micro beads inside burst to change the colour of the product into a natural tan. It sounds very scientific but its an amazing product.
