A Hidden Concealer Gem? Nip+Fab Have My Back!

I have some seriously deep set and dark circles under my eyes. They are a mix between an indigo blue and a bright, bruisey purple. Lovely! I’ve dedicated my life (or the last year or so…) to finding a concealer with some serious game to cover them up. But it’s been a bit of a lacking experience. The best ones that have been advised to me are the Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer and the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer. But with each being £19, I wasn’t too keen to invest without trying every cheaper option under the sun. When I sampled some of the Nip+Fab Concealer on the back of my hand, I was impressed by the thickness of the formula. I spread a little of my sample under one my eyes, and loved the coverage! My deep set circles aren’t fully concealed, but for £8.95, it’s damn good coverage!

Festivals 2017 – The ‘No Makeup’ Makeup Look

One of the biggest fashion looks I saw at Coachella was the boho look. I’m so happy it’s making a come back! Time for rustic, floral prints, loose fitting dresses, short denim shorts and loose, wavy hair. It’s all about naturalness. The “I woke up like this” vibe. As if you rolled out of bed, selected the first piece of crumpled up clothing from your floordrobe and waltzed out of the front door, glowing and glorious. Except in reality, it’s a carefully calculated look, pairing the right print with the right accessories and the right makeup. But in my opinion, the right makeup is the ‘No Makeup’ Makeup look.

Foundation Techniques: Which Applicator is Best?

I’m going to apply foundation onto my face 8 times, because I’m genuinely curious as to which technique comes out on top. I’ll be using 2 foundations; my absolute holy grail foundation (Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Foundation) and a foundation I have several issues with (L’Oreal Infallible 24hr Matte Foundation). I’ll be using four techniques for each; classic finger blending, the beauty blender, brushing with a traditional foundation brush and using an oval brush.

Review: L’Oréal Infallible 24 Hour Matte range

I suppose I have to admit I’m a sucker for advertising; L’Oréal adverts have been popping up on my Facebook for weeks now. Yesterday I gave in and bought the full Infallible range. These products, particularly the foundation and colour correcting palette, are supposedly able to cover any form of imperfection, even tattoos. I don’t have any tattoos to test this on, so I guess I’ll use my face!

Review: e.l.f cosmetics (new makeup haul)

e.l.f is a brand that’s had me curious for a while now, so I decided to get a haul of stuff when all of my basics ran out (by that I mean I ran out of foundation). There was also speak of a free gift if you spent over £25, so I was sucked in good and well by that point! e.l.f has come across to me as a luxury brand, so I was pleasantly surprised to find I could get not just a foundation, but also a primer, concealer and felt-tip style eyeliner (which I’ve needed for ages!) for just over £25. When combined with the free gift, the value for money was fantastic!
