Beauty Haul and Favourites

Image

These past weekends, I have admittedly been buying a bit more beauty bits and bobs than I probably need…. 😛 But that has came to good use because, one I am looking fine, and two I can share with you my favourite and probably some of this past months best beauty products. Enjoy! xoxo

Image

These are my favourite beauty products, and tools from January 2013! I won’t be going into detail with all of them, because well It will take to long, but I will give you a wee bit of info on them! The powder brush you can see is from Sarah Ashton’s, 7 piece brush set and it is amazing. I got the brush set in a sale so of course it was a steal, plus the brush gives you great coverage and is extremely soft and gentle on the skin, so it is a must.

The small pot is M&S’ new collection lip balm and I have fallen in love with it. Admittedly it is a bit expensive but, it smells, feels, looks, and works amazing so I would definitely say it is well worth the money.

Soap & Glory’s thick and fast mascara is one of my absolute favourites. It actually makes it look as though you are wearing false lashes and it is so light and not clumpy at all.

Revelon Photo Ready Primer- This has to my favourite thing i have bought so far this year! It works a dream and makes my face look silky smooth and gives my foundation and powder great coverage. Another amazing thing about this product is that, you can wear it on its own without foundation and your skin still looks beautiful. It is also far healthier for your skin and pores, so I would definitely recommend!

l’Oreal Paris Elvive 48H’ Anti-Frizz Serum- I just got his Frizz Serum recently but it seems to be working a treat and is great value for money. I think there is a deal on where it is about £3.20 and it works just as well as the more expensive products on the market. I have a huge problem with frizz and this seems to be the only thing that works, so make sure if you are a sufferer to check it out!

Kleenex Shine Absorbing Sheets- Seriously guys there pads are miracles. No more looking sweaty after P.E these amazing little things just make the oil disappear, so you can continue looking fabulous! I don’t know if they sell the Kleenex ones in America, but I do know that there is a Clean & Clear version available in the USA, so all my friends of the world, buy them and save yourself from a sweaty face! xoxo

Revelon ColorStay Smoky Shadow Stick- I got this revelon creme eyeshadow, a little while ago after I saw MacBarbie07 feature it in one of her videos and I am in love. You get them in loads of different color’s and i am definitely going to get more. It is an easy effective way to get smoky eyes and the eyes shadow lasts so long you probably won’t have to top it up all day!

Collection 2000 Illuminating Touch Concealer- I know, I know that collection 2000 is not the best of brands, but this concealer is so good! My friend recommended it to me because, I have very fair skin and most concealers are just too orange. It comes in all different shades and is not to runny or thick, so it is just a great concealer and amazing value for money.

No7 Essentially Natural Foundation- The No7 skin test is a must, because let’s be honest who wants an orange face! My foundation matches my skin tone perfectly and  gives a beautiful natural finish. For a liquid foundation it is super lightweight and just amazing, so I recommend it as high as I can!

A Dummies View On Braids

ImageIf you are like me, and you love braids but, find them impossible, then you will like this little rant. Because well… there might just be some advice at the end.

I mean how can you keep up with them all there are fish tails, waterfalls, dutch braids, double braids, french braids, Grecian braids and many more. All I can do is a normal plait, (thats what we call braids here in the uk) and a very wonky french braid. Help Me!

Image

Everyone seems to be rocking braids at the moment even tiny wee ones, but I just can’t seem to pull them off. I do actually want to learn how to braid better, I mean this post isn’t just a big rant, but most of my friends and family are pretty useless and well, I do have one auntie who is a hairdresser but she lives really far away. 😦 I know I am so deprived….

Image

More than anything I would LOVE to learn how to do a waterfall braid, so if anyone can help me please leave a comment below! I am coming to you my friends as a last resort! 😛

Braids are so, cute and even though like everything else they can be a bit OTT sometimes, they do really make you look that much more awesome! if you love/hate them as much as me, (it’s a complicated relationship we have) then make sure to get back to mwa, and share your inspiration, ideas or just plain rants!

You Know you Want To!

Elie Saab’s Stunning Gowns

Image

One of my favourite collections, at this years Paris Haute Couture week has to be Elie Saab. I know I say this a lot, but it just keeps on getting better by the day! xx

Elie’s collection was extremely elegant, which everyone must know by now, is the thing I look for in fashion. I just love it! The beautiful opening ivory gowns, with sparkling crystals, to the sweet pale pink and bright red dresses, were finished off with a glittery, silk bride, who epitomised femininity. The whole collection was just stunning, and I don’t know a woman or girl in the world, who wouldn’t want to own one.

 ❤This has to be one of my favourite dresses ever!❤

Image

 The intricacy of the detail on this dress is just amazing!

Image

 Another stunning dress by Elie Saab! xx

Image

 I have to say the white dresses are probably my favourite because, the are just so classy and elegant, but the lace and crystals are also very pretty. There is no part of the collection, which i can really fault, but I do think that the gowns, could of been a collection on their own without the shorter midi-dresses or the bridal wear. Though I do understand, you need some different designs in your collection, it is just my personal opinion! xx

Image

 This dress is very pretty, but I think if it had been made into a gown, it would of just had that extra WOW factor!

 (The amazing silk cloud, that was a bride)

I absolutely adore this collection, the gowns are just perfect and this will certainly be going on my January Hall of Fame! xx

The Perfect Accessory!

(I know this isn’t  the best picture to illustrate my point but I do Love it!)

Anyways If you don’t love them then you must be crazy, because hair bows are the cutest hair accessory in the world! I love them, (as if i haven’t made that clear already) but there is one problem, they are a very expensive interest! I know £3 or $6 is not that much but if you are buying like 5 bows at a time, the money really adds up! So imagine how excited i was when i found a super simple youtube video, instructing me on how to make them! It is fair to say I am obsessed now and i have made about 10 already!

Image

These hair bows are just adorable and make any outfit, just a little bit more special. I have a cute pair of blue polka dot jeans and a white jumper, (just like the outfit in the picture 😛 ) and they go so well with them!

If you want any advice or have made your own bows, be sure to email me!
