The Porcelain Girls Contour

P1210687

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.

The Perfect Lip Duo

P1210572P1210574P1210581

M.A.C Whirl|Soap&Glory Naked Beige.

I never used to be a lip liner girl but I fell in love with Whirl by M.A.C and now I can’t stop using it! M.A.C liners are so creamy and don’t drag on the lips so it makes lining the lips really simple. Sometimes I just fill my entire lips in with Whirl but if I want something a bit glossier and moisturising then I love using Soap&Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Lipstick in Naked Beige.Packed full of Vitamin E and Shea Butter they make your lips feel amazing with the added plus of great pigmentation and a pretty good wear-ability. Naked Beige is a lovely pink toned nude with just a hint of brown making it the perfect 90’s nude – the above photo is making it look pinker than it is!

The perfect lip duo.

Naked Beige|Review

P1210012P1210033

Soap&Glory Super-Colour FabuLIPSTICK in Naked Beige£9.00

It may be a new year but I am still loving the 90’s nude lip trend and this beauty from Soap&Glory is my new favourite. It’s definitely a warmer beige than some of them on the market with a distinct red undertone. The formula is similar to MAC Cremesheen very moisturising and creamy due to the shea butter and vitamin E in the formula but with a more Satin finish. Perfect for people who want moisture without high-shine. The pigmentation is also amazing and with a pretty long wear time (around 3 hours) it’s the perfect everyday lip.

I love pairing this with a bronze smokey eye or lashes of mascara with a naked lid.

Have you tried this lipstick which shade is your favourite?

My Top 3 Cleansers

P1180916P1180917

 

Nivea Daily Essentials 2in1 Cleanser and Toner|Garnier Softening Cleansing Lotion Goodbye Dry|Soap&Glory Peaches and Clean.

As much as I love wearing make up there is nothing better than taking it all off at the end of the day. I am very much a high street type of a girl and think that there is a pretty good range of skincare out there without breaking the bank; here are my top three.

1.Nivea Daily Essentials Refreshing 2in1 Cleanser and Toner£3.59

This is a great basic skin care item especially for anyone who is just starting out. It’s a cream which I apply with my fingertips and then either remove with cotton wool (if i’m being lazy) or wash off with a flannel. It has a really refreshing smell and is great for anyone with sensitive skin. It’s both a toner and a cleanser so is great for anyone who is a little lazy or has had a late night.

2. Garnier Softening Cleansing Lotion Goodbye Dry£3.49

10p cheaper but just as good as the Nivea one. It has a more floral smell so not great if you have a sensitive nose but I rather like the smell. This is great for people with dry skin as it really adds moisture to the skin even whilst cleansing. It’s super quick and effective at removing make up but I also love this for just getting rid of the daily grime when I’ve had a no make-up day.

3.Soap&Glory Peaches and Clean 3in1 Deep Purifying Cleanser£8.00

Slightly more expensive than the other two but this is perfect for after nights out when you’ve had a lot of make up on. It removes make-up, de-clogs your t-zone and boots circulation. It also is balanced for all skin types and smells amazing but the smell isn’t too overpowering. Leaves my skin super hydrated and feeling super soft.

Do you prefer high street or high end skin care?

Peaches and Plums|FOTD

P1180254P1180256P1180251P1180258

I haven’t done a FOTD for ages but I forgot how great they at showing you guys the different products I have been using.

Currently I have ditched the foundation, my skin is looking good so I don’t need to even out my skin tone too much. For concealer I have been loving my Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer, it’s lightweight and the light reflecting particles make your eyes look brighter. On my one little spot – damn that time of the month I have the 17 Phwoaar Paint which is good heavy duty cream concealer. Seeing as I am not wearing foundation I put on a little bit of the Collection Pressed Powder to keep any shine away.

On my eyes I used a Clinique duo; Frosted Blossom all over the lid and then Stone Violet in the crease, pretty but subtle. On my lashes is the L’Oreal Volume Million Lash Excess which is great for creating big lashes without falsies or curling them. Moving onto my cheeks, I always thought that pink and peach couldn’t be used at the same time but the Soap&Glory Sexy Mother Blusher in Onamatopecha is a beautiful barley there peach which just lifts the colour and complements the pink on the eyes. To contour with I used another cream product the Bourjois Bronzing Primer. It’s perfect for the paler girls as it does’t come out orange on the skin.

Too finish off the look I combined the peach and pink on my lips using MAC Crosswires which is a coral pink. It’s bright and makes a statement.

Supercat Liner

P1150952P1150991

Soap&Glory Supercat Liner£6.00

I can’t quite believe that I haven’t blogged about this product before seeing as I use it nearly everyday.

I love a good cat flick and the Supercat Liner by Soap&Glory makes it easier than ever to do – even in a rush. It’s a felt tip liner with a thin point meaning that you can do either a super thin line or thicken it up for more drama. It’s highly pigmented to give you a clear black line across your lids and doesn’t transfer at all during the day. What I love about this product is that it’s so smooth to pop on, no dragging across the eyelids; it just glides on.

At only £6.00 I will always re-purchase.
