Benefit are a brand I have been buying from for what feels like forever. I always remember when I was in secondary school and a girl in my R.E class pulled out a Benetint, telling us her sister worked for the brand and how good it was. A few years later I was a complete fan.  There are few products I dislike from Benefit and they certainly know how to do a relaunch of old favourites alongside adding exciting new products.  Their newest launch has been a range of concealer including four versions of the Boi-ing classic.  I popped along to my local Fenwicks last week to have my brows done by the babes at the Bene-brow bar and they applied some of the Boi-ing airbrush concealer to me afterwards where my makeup had come off and OH MY.  When Benefit say airbrush, they definitely mean it. My skin looked… View Post

Hey beauts! Today i will be showing you a Rita Ora inspired makeup look. I have been loving the song Black Widow by Rita & Iggy and when i saw the video i thought Rita looked amazing! Her makeup look in the video is quite full on so i dulled it down a little but the concept of a heavy smoky eye and a nude lip really screams ‘night out drinking cocktails while looking super glam!!’ For the look i used…. *Rimmel Fix and Perfect pro primer *Loreal True Match foundation in shade N4 Beige (which i have decided is the complete wrong colour for me) *No7 Perfect light pressed powder in shade Medium *Benefit Hoola *MUA undress your skin highlighter in shade iridescent gold *Elf Eyelid Primer *Gosh brow kit *W7 In the Buff eyeshadow palette *Naked 2 Basics palette * Urban Decay Subversion Lash Primer *Urban Decay Perversion… View Post

Hey Beauts! Todays post is a how to on contouring! Contouring is where you apply shadow and light to certain areas of your face to enhance your features especially cheekbones!! Celebrity fans of this process include Kim Kardashian, Cameron Diaz and Cheryl Cole. Today I have had the pleasure of having a model to make over which I find easier than contouring myself! This is my model Natasha before..she has had her face cleansed and moisturised. So firstly I applied a primer..as you should ALWAYS do!! Primers fill pores and hold your make up in place, today I used Benefits Porefessional. As you can see, Natashas face already looks more flawless, I applied this mostly to problem areas such as cheeks and any blemishes with the Real Techniques Detailer brush. I then applied a touch of concealer under Natashas eyes and used the Real Techniques buffing brush to buff in… View Post

Afternoon Lovelies! Today I am reviewing Benefit’s ‘Fake Up’. I must have purchased this product well over 2 months ago. I havent reviewed it so far as I kept giving it a chance. But….meh. Benefit’s tag line for this product is ‘crease control hydrating concealer’….umm..no! It is anything but crease controlling. When they say this I take it to mean it controls the way your make up sometimes creases under your eyes..especially with some concealers. This product does not do that..not on me anyway. If anything it creases even more than cheaper alternatives! Also hydrating does not mean greasy. This is greasy. I put it under my eyes and even with powder over the top it just looks shiny and not attractive. Now if you know me, youll know how much this is paining me to write a fairly negative review about a Benefit product as generally I love their… View Post

Happy Bank Holiday Monday to all of us in the UK! Hope your all spending your day doing something wonderful! I am writing this post for you all and then I am off for my final details meeting with my wedding venue! 🙂 So I have been struggling a LOT with my skin recently. Weirdly it is only ever my chin which is the issue. My problem is that my chin and T zone are very oily and my cheeks can get a little dry= the most annoying skin ever! I have tried SO many skincare products from high end to high street to try and combat this and in this post I will be showing you which products are mostly working for me right now. (I say right now because something will be going great for me then all of a sudden it flares up my skin again! Meh.)… View Post
