Hello and welcome to my blog. Today’s post is about last Sundays look which is well late, as always, but it’s better late than never. Last Sunday’s sermon was about God’s providence and the question Job raised was shall we receive good at the hand of God and shall we not receive evil? This is a question you should ponder upon.
Since it’s summer I am playing with colours with my clothes and my makeup pallette. I wore this look for my 29th birthday and thought let’s recycle. The skirt is from Asos and the stop and shoes are from top shop.
For the makeup I used MUA cosmetics bright vibrant colours and their single midnight blue pallette.
For my lips I used L’Oréal infallible lip gloss in the bigger the better and lined my lips with BarryM lip pencil in plum. I also keep reaching for my L’Oréal True Match in dark coffee.
That’s it for today until next time it bye. Let me know if you are trying bright and bold colours this summer or nude and neutral colours.
Hello and welcome to my blog. So I recently came across the new Huawei mobile phone and having previously had the P8 I was excited about this new release. I got this phone on Tuesday as part of an upgrade from my previous plan with EE.
I am glad they still have the filters from the previous P8 on this too.
I have done one test with the phone which is editing a picture I took on my Sony 5100 another investment I made this month. The results was really good and I feel I am going have a lot of fun with both of them. The photo editing capability is really good so I am happy about that.
Shine bright like the diamonds✨
So I am looking forward to artistic pictures of objects and my face of course 🤭. I feel like I should have gone for the pro but one always has to stay within their budget. So far I like it but I have only had it for less than 48 hours so let’s wait and see.
I also like how healthy I look in this picture as in full not too skinny on the face obvious it is because I am smiling 😊
I will report back with pictures taken and edited on the device.
P.s This is an upgrade, I didn’t purchase this phone out right although I did consider that.
Until next time, happy selfing.
Hello and welcome to my blog. Today post is about Feelunique an online beauty shop like beautybay I first came across this site on TV when i was in my early 20s. It has grown significantly.
In january i made a
few purchases totally almost £70. I bought the LOreal true match in 10N Cocoa, 11N Dark coffee and the toffee shade for a friend. These were more than 50% off at that time. Superdrug and Boots are doing 3 for 2 on Loreal products. I also bought two of the Revlon colorstay combination/oily in Mocha.
Unboxing my feelunique. The packaging was good and secure.
Shipment was pretty quick but obviously it’s in the UK i believe. The offer that was on at that time was up to 70% off. The products are genuine and affordable as well during sales or offers. For example i bought two of the Revlon colorstay as it was half price and had salcylic acid in it.
I am happy with my purchases and would visit the site every now and then and keep an eye out for to take advantage of offer. I also got some sample product of aveda hair and Paco Rabone 2ml perfum.
Until next time, shop wisely.
I bought these items in addition to a tripod which is not in this picture.
Hello and welcome to my blog. I am sure you have come across LightInTheBox it is a website which sells a lot of beauty and fashion products. If i am not mistaken it is Chinese owned. I have purched items from there on two occasions.
I bought some foundation sponges which i have bot used yet, contour kit, nail kit, eye lashes and blush kit. i also got an tripod which is not in this picture. It is not that strong.
I purchased the items at end of November and did not recieve them until second week of January 🤔. I understand there was snow in the UK and transport may have been disrupted. But yes it took too long to reach me. This was my second purchased as my cousin destroyed the contour kit i bought from them. And because i really like the contour kit i bought the same one again from them.
Beauty on a bugdet
The length of time for the item to reach you is dependent on whuch shipping you choose. I was not willing to pay the same amount as my shopping for shipping. If you do not mind waiting go ahead and make your purchases, your order will surely get to you.
The tripod is not that strong so i have to buy another one from Amazon.
Thats it for today.
Until next time, it bye from me
Hello and welcome to my blog. This os a long awaiting blog and thua there is not going to be too much words.
As you can see i was very busy with loreal during last year.
My 2017 favourite is mostly the loreal infallible line. Simply because they did the job for me. I got pretty amazing look from the line. I played around with foundations from deep golden to deep cool, mixing cuppacino and espresso as i was not sure which was my shade but got my shade in the end which i believe is 11N Dark Coffee. I could be wrong but i like that finish to the deep golden and deep cool. The matte lip colour: Forgive my sin was my favourite lip colour too. I am in my red phase still.
Im currently wearing forgive my sin in this picture not too sure which shade of foundation of the true match im wearing. The eyeshadow is MUA
The BarryM lip pencil in plum also helped me alot. As mentioned before i love their lip penciles. I may try their eye shadows this year.
Revlons pink pout with BarryM lip liner Plum
Revlon’s pink pout has also been a staple lip colour I reached for. I have worn it many time last year.
Iman cosmetics eyebrow pencil. I prefer the colour to other eyebrow pencils i have tried.
I was going for a natural look with the true match in this picture. You can call it my no makeup makeup look.
For concealer i prefer and use MAC’s prolong wear and cover up. It just does the job. I have tried other concealers and let’s just say i returned to my first love. In addition to their skin finish in dark deep. I think.
Not forgetting Fenty beauty in 460 although it looks red when first applied, it does give a good matte finish and matches me perfectly.
Until next time, its bye from me
Hello and welcome to my blog. I recently bought a few shades of foundation from feelunique and have been trying them since sunday. On sunday i wore the loreal True Match in 10N Cocoa. The foundation looks dark in the packaging but a bit bright when i put it on.
Revlon ColorStay 24 hours wear in Mocha | Shade 450.
Yesterday i wore it in 11N which is Dark Coffee and it was my match yeps!. I might mix the two namely 10N Cocoa and 11N Dark coffee in the future.
That corporate swag
Todays look is the Revlon Colorstay 24hour Wear, combination/oily, shade:450:Mocha. I really like the finish look of just the foundation. It is lightweight with a medium coverage so you will have to use more to cover any hyperpigmentation. I bought two for £6.45. The reason i bought two is on the website it states that there is salicylic acid in it and since my skin attracts acne i thought this would be perfect for my skin by keeping the acne at bay while looking flawless.
Thought on this foundation
At the moment i really like it and would buy it again. I would use it as an everyday-work foundation because of the natural feel and look it gives me.
My take on the no-makeup makeup look. My eyebrows are not identical twins. The lighting in the toilet though
Since I rushed doing my makeup this morning, my eyebrow kind of do not match. Reminder: They are not identical twins. But when i do wear this again i will share more pictures.
Finally i used MAC’s skin finish in dark deep to set my face and Nivea’s lip balm in Soft Rosé to add a touch of light pink to my lips. I also used Revlon’s eyeliner and BarryM’s black eyeliner pencil to line my water line. The eyebrow pencil i am using is from Iman Cosmetics. I used loreal’s infallible matte spray to finish it all off. I wish i had done a light contour but i was literally rushing. All this pictures were taken at work in the toilets – not literally but you know what i mean. 😬
I left the front part then sort of corn row the rest back and corn row the front part and tuck it in to look like its one corn row from the front to the back. Hope this makes sense. Aim is to protect the ends because its very cold. I slick the front down with a bit of olive oil eco styler gel
Until next time, its bye from me
Hello and welcome to my blog. This will be more pictorial showing you how the e.l.f Ruby Red look on dark skin.
Over the christmas holidyas i was in the shopping spirit so i got myself this e.l.f ruby red lipstick from superdrug.
I purchases it for £4.99 from Superdrug. Mhe foundation i am wearing is MAC in NW55 and NW45 prolong concealer. Eye shadow is MUA chestnut and and mascara L’Oreal’s million volumn lashes from Superdrug.
I love red now. Previously have been wearing Loreal’s infallible which is matte. I love this velvet finish from e.l.f
I intend to collect some more reds so let me know of affordables one you have tried.
All set to leave the house.
I must say i love my old Huawei P8 which i have had for almost 3 years. I use it to do my photoshot until i get my sony mirrorless.
Until next time its bye from me
I just like playing with colours. I am very new to all this type of makeup and trying my best to do a good job on myself all the times.
These are the product i used for my eye lids.
The eye shadow i used is the MUA eye shadow in Chestnut as base, midnight blue and MAC black eye shadow. I used the MUA eye shadow in champaigne in the tear dot. For mascara i am using L’Oreals volume million lashes.
For the look below i was not sure whether to go for red or a different colour lippy and in the end i went for the Barrym lip liquid in Signature. The signature colour is similar to Revlons pink pout which i love.
I am not an MUA i just like to play with colours 💄💋
I wanted to go for a more natural look but look what happened in the end. I can not help it , i am a colourful girl.
Thanks for stopping by.
Until next time its bye from me.
Hello and welcome to my blog. This is yet another beauty blog about my recent MAC purchases. I have worn this on three occasions; twice last weekend and on new years eve so i thought a review was befitting.
A quick recap regarding my recent purchases are the NW55 Studio fluid in NW55, concealer in NW45 and prolongwear powder in deep dark.
The fluid gives you a full coverage and holds up really well. It covers dark circles around the eye area and gives you a good canvas to work on and due to this, you can actually wear the fluid and powder for a natural no-makeup makeup look. For primer i used a bit of the loreal and milk of magnisia as i was going to be out for a while. I concealed with the MAC NW45 and set my under eye with ben nye powder in topaz and ebony to contour. I also used the Anastasia Beverly Hills glowkit bronze to highlight.
Having applied the MAC NW55 foundation on
I really love this foundation shade and would buy it again but will only wear it to weddings or other events that my makeup will be required to be on point.
When i applied the foundation in NW55 and concealer in NW45. You can stop at this point for a more natural look or opt for an eye liner.
I will also keep to the NW55 although i think there should be another shade between that and the NW58. Its slightly bright by itself in pictures but i can work with it. One can wear the foundation and powder as is because it gives you a really good coverage in addition you can get really good pictures at this stage as well.
I took this pictures using my Huawei P8 and using filter demist which helps make every detail of your makeup stands out and one layer beauty filter.
Apart from the NW58 i feel MAC foundation when applied tend to be a bit brighter. And this is a mon avis (in my opinion). May i also add that they make the best concealers ever. I have tried other concealers but i find myself going back to MAC. I like the NW45 both the fluid coverup and cream one. For a more affordable one i will use the LA girl pro which i got from Beauty Bay.
You can get professional natural looking shots both for portofolios and personal keep in addition to artistic shots.
I hope this has been helpful.
Until next time, its bye from me.
BarryM Makemaker: Lip and Nail kit
Hello everyone, I hope you have had a good start of 2018. I am back with yet another beauty review. And its the one and only BarryM match maker lip and nail kit. I got this for free when i purchased 3 lip pencils worth £2.99 each from superdrug. The kit was free when you spent £8.00 or more on selected BarryM costmetics.
The nail polish colour is #Extravagant. its really pigmented and a little goes a long way.
Before i go any further i would like to take this opportunity to express how much i love BarryM lip pencils. The colour plum no# 11 is my go to lip liner pencil for all my lipsticks and glosses.
Picture on the left when i first applied the BarryM matte me up with lip liner BarryM in plum. Picture on the right is early hours of new years day.
I have the pencils in red, chocolate and plum and used to have burgandy. The plan was to wear the lip gloss and nail polish on new years eve to church but i could only wear the lip gloss as i was in a rush.
I do not wear artificial nails. I prefer to grow and nurture my own. I have had to shorten them so they dont break as others have.
A couple of years back when i played with bright colours, i bought their nail vanish in bright colours. Then i switch to black for a while. I absolutely love this colour: looks red with sparkles. #Sold. I love red. I have a blog on bright colours coming soon. I already have a BarryM clear sparle nail polish which i want to wear with a black layer underneath.
BarryM matchmaker kit
I was in a rush on the day so i will upload better pictures of the lip liquid again next time. I am not sure how much it cost by itself.
Thanks for stopping by.
Until next time its bye from me.
