ShopShopShop - Beauty Haul, 4 December .

Saturdays to me mean only one thing, SHOPPING! No matter how snowy/icy it is.
I only went shopping to get one thing... But once I start I can't stop.

First off, I went to boots and got what I originally went in for

Clinique ex foliating scrub for combination oily to oily skin types. Then I started getting carried away...

Urban Decay Eye Shadow          

I got two urban decay eye eye shadows in half baked and midnight cowgirl.

Barry M lip paint in coral. Then I went in superdrug for the first time in months for a quick peek.


I found my self drawn to the accessorize collection, I hadn't seen thins collection in stores as I don't often go into superdrug but the packaging really caught my eye. I got Illusion Aztec nail polish and with love golden sand baked bronzer.
Then finally the bodyshop.

Rainforest moisture hair butter from the body shop just thought I'd give it ago.

Want reviews on any of these products? Just comment below.

So that was my haul. Have a good day.

November Favourites.

In my favourite blogs I will be doing 1 face product, 1 eye product, 1 lip product,  1 nail product.
Here Goes,

MAC Blushcreme

Firstly, my favourite face product is the mac blushcreme in shade posey. I apply this with my fingers and it feels so soft and creamy, and its such a beautiful colour.

Next up, my favourite lip product, Vaseline lip therapy cocoa. As the weather is changing my lips seam to get dry and chapped, NOT NO MORE (: , this relatively new Vaseline tin contains a hint of cocoa butter, witch is well known for its conditioning benefits.

For the nails, Barry M nail paint in 293 Raspberry. This is a Gorgeous christmasy colour, and at £3 a bottle you carn't go wrong.  

For eyes, ELF eyebrow kit in ash, To add definition but still look natural.

So that was my November favourites. I hoped it helped. Have a good day,

Foundation routine for oily skin.

Foundation routine for oily skin.

Okay, so here's my first ever blog post, I'm still trying to get the hang of the whole blog thing but here goes.

This is the foundation routine I have been using for the past few months, I have oily skin so bare in mind this may not work for you, but hopefully it will help.

So after washing my skin, I apply a foundation base with my fingers witch is Benefit's That Gal primer putting 5 dots on my face (each cheek, chin, nose, and forehead.). This primer reminds me of play dough LOL.
Then I apply play stick also by Benefit in shade spin the bottle, I do this again with my hands.

To cover up all my HORRIBLE spots I then use MAC studio finish SPF 35 concealer in NW15 with MAC 195 concealer brush.

Lastly, I use my MAC 150 powder blush to apply my mineralised skin finish natural in light.

So that was my foundation routine for oily skin. I hoped it helped. Have a good day,
