I have discovered so much about what my skin likes and it tends to go for organic products. I find that organic ranges are so much kinder to my skin.
The Evolve Beauty range of organic, vegan and cruelty free products is a discovery from a blogging event, which I have not regretted since picking up the samples. I started using this range as part of my bridal skin care routine. This is not like any other skin care range that I have ever used or tested.
I have always known skincare was an important part of great makeup but until I decided I was doing my own wedding makeup I hadn’t implemented a strict skincare routine; tailored to my skincare issues and I didn’t really understand my skin.
It was important to me, as it would be to any bride, that my makeup looked flawless and in order to achieve that, my skin needed to be smooth and clear. Understanding the issues you have with your skin and what you want to achieve will help you to tailor a routine that will help create smooth, soft and healthy skin.
I am going to give you my tips and tricks and products that I use to get the skin I wanted and maintain it after the wedding.
I knew when I was getting married that I was going to be doing my own make up. I mean I am a makeup artist.
It is one thing working on a client than it is working on yourself. On a Client, you know exactly what foundation your going to use (usually a MAC or a well know brand) or the Client will tell you what they want. However, when your doing your own make up, you become so picky about the foundation and products you will use, to create that perfect look. I don’t know why this is, but you drive yourself completely mad looking for the perfect base. The base is the make or break of the rest of the makeup, you get the base right and everything else will fall into place.
I was so excited to be have been picked for this months Influenster Voxbox x Bourjois Paris. Its my first one and I think the box lived up to its social media hype. I was so grateful to receive this complementary box from Influenster.
The box itself contains 12 lipsticks by Bourjois Paris known as the Rouge Velvet Lipstick collection. The shade ranges from nude to darker red/browns, it is such a beautiful collection to receive. I also received the Bourjois Paris Miraculous Contour Universal Lip Liner and Primer, which I have never heard of and so was excited to try it.
Dermacol Makeup Cover foundation took social media by storm, everyone wanted to try the ‘worlds most full coverage and waterproof foundation’, but was it just a gemic? Instagram literally made me buy this foundation, but at the same time I too, really wanted to test the claims of this innovative foundation.
It claims that it can literally cover tattoos and skin pigmentation and it contains 50% pigmentation in that small tube. What intrigued me the most was the claims that it could cover dark circles, without the need to colour correct. I have extremely dark under eyes, which without colour correcting would look ashy under a concealer, so for me that would be the biggest test of all. Could this foundation really be that amazing that it would cover even my dark circles.
