*Soap and Glory Glam-Tidings 2017!

I’ve purposely waited until November to do this post because I don’t want to be too early. It’s that time of year where shops start to be getting out their gifting tables and filling catalogues with gift guides.

One of the best brands that do Christmas gift sets as you may have already probably noticed are Soap and Glory!

Their range this year is suitable for everyone and it ranges from bath products to make up as well as skin care.

I was lucky enough to receive the Soap and Glory Try your luxe gift set and I honestly would love this as a gift. It has the famous righteous butter as well as the gloss sticks which if you know I’M OBSESSED WITH!

I also am loving these products from their range –

Soap & Glory Winter Wonder Glam Gift set – With all your essentials from the Soap & Glory make up line you can’t go wrong with this gift set. You have such a wide selection of products so it’s a super versatile gift set – perfect for any make-up lover. I love the eyeshadows they’re so pigmented and lovely A/W colours.

Soap & Glory Glow Maintenance – If your obsessed with skin care or know somebody who is this gift set is made for them. Personally I love that it comes with a bag so it can be used for make up or your favourite products. The Soap & Glory face masks are so great and so hydrating for your skin.

Soap & Glory Wash Upon A Star – Finally I love these creamy shower gel pods in all different scents it’s something new they’ve bought out and if you love Soap and glory I’m sure you’ll love these.

Quick Halloween Inspired Make Up Look!

 

Happy Halloween, as it’s Halloween I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon and do a post Halloween-esque! I did a make-up look which was quite vampy so I thought I’d share how I did it and what I used. I love dark and smoky make-up so what other opportunity to share this make-up look.

L’Oreal Infallible Foundation – Boots.  I got a foundation slightly lighter than my original shade to add that pale look. It wasn’t as light as I wanted but even a little lighter makes a difference. This foundation is my holy-grail drugstore foundation it has a medium coverage so you can’t go wrong.

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer – Superdrug. I used my Collection concealer as you all know its my favourite to hide them eye bags. I added it just under my eyes again in a lighter shade than my usual just to make my face pale instead of it being my natural shade.

Laura Geller Illuminator – Beauty Bay.  I love this highlighter. It’s so pretty and has the brightest glow so I thought this would be the best way to add a lighter colour to the look. As well as a slightly pink glow rather than silver.

Ultra Matte Lip –  Colourpop.  I’m so glad it’s A/W so I can get the most wear out of this again. It was going dusty waiting for me to pick it up again. I love a dark lip and this has to be my favourite shade. A deep red. I mean you just can’t go wrong with bold eyes and a dark lip.

Sexy Mother Pucker – Soap and glory. Instead of it just having a matte finish, I thought to change it up a little so I added this lip gloss on top. It added such a brighter more loud look to my lips. To allow it to be the centre of the look.

L’Oreal Paris Super Liner – Superdrug. I mean you can’t go wrong with a winged eye look for Halloween. It’s the perfect opportunity to go all out and have the boldest eye make up. So why not take advantage of it. I love this eyeliner its perfect to get the sharpest wing as well as the darkest.

Lace Cat Ears – Primark. Finally, a non-make up item to finish the whole look were these lace ears that I grabbed from Primark aren’t they the cutest you’ve seen!!? Again you can adapt this look by adding lashes or even eyeshadow and even glitter if you want to go that extra mile!

What look are you going for this Halloween? Comment below.

Get Pamper Ready with Soap & Glory!

Photo 08-10-2017, 10 04 29 amPhoto 08-10-2017, 10 04 15 amPhoto 08-10-2017, 10 13 18 amPhoto 08-10-2017, 10 04 54 am

After a brilliant birthday week its time to update you guys with some exciting new releases from Soap and Glory! I mean how can I not share what I’ve been loving.

First and foremost we’ve got to go with the She’s a natural day and night face pallete.  I’m in love with this combination I mean it’s just everything you could need in a pallete. The pallete consists of a light-deflecting sunkissed bronzer, a creamy blendable blusher and the a sheer, smoothing highlighter. The goodness doesn’t stop there then comes 3 silky buildable eyeshadow in the shades – cafe away, culture choc and choccy. This is perfect to have in your handbag or take away with you for a weekend rather than a whole bunch of make up. The eyeshadows have to be my favourite as I did an evening look and they worked so well.

As you all know I’m all about long baths and pamper nights. I’d have one every night if I could! Soap and glory now have bath bombs! YES you heard it right!! They have bath bombs I mean it couldn’t be a better idea could it? The fizz-a-bath bombs are available in original pink, smoothie star and sugar crush. These are exclusively available at Boots.

Finally, another one of my favourites is the melty talented dry skin balm. You can dab a bit of this onto dry lips, nails or even hair tips. It has a light coconut fragrance to leave you feeling soothed and nourished this is so versatile as it has so many uses. You can take it everywhere and it’ll come in handy.

I’m in love with late night pamper sessions and all these products are perfect for a relaxed evening or even a late night make up look.

Trends, newbies and holy grails!

My posting schedule is a mess, I’m truly sorry I’ve just been so busy. It’ll be back to normal soon I promise you.

Chokers and a dark lip haven’t ever left. They’ve always been an option to fall back on. I mean there’s no going wrong. You can add that rock chick vibe to an outfit instantly and sometimes we all want that side of us to shine. I mean I love a choker to add that bold look to my outfit if I’m feeling a little bare. Even in the summer a pastel choker isn’t something to say no to. However maybe the dark lip is a little less popular. As people tend to go for more the glossy lighter lip look.

Highlighter (by Sleek – limited edition) never fails to amaze me. Adds such a wonderful glow which lasts all day. Blinding but on trend on Instagram as everyone’s look is completed with a finishing sweep of highlight.

Silver hoops have wormed their way back in with one of the most unexpected appearances. In trend during the Noughties yet people wanted this trend to not come back. It’s back and better than ever. The Hadid sisters, and Love Islands popular Olivia, Gabby, Amber and Camilla have been rocking them in and out the villa. I’ve been loving them and cannot wait to style them with evening and day outfits as earings have to be one of my favourites.

Hand cream remains as one of my favourite products which has a home in my hand bag, my car and a collection on my dressing table. A newbie I received recently  is from the Crabtree and Evelyn’s Gardeners collection. It contains nutrient-rich shea butter which is my favourite and I love this as it’s absorbed by hands super quickly leaving them feeling lovely.

Skincare products that I’ve been loving!

 

Swollen tonsils, exam stress and life leaves you with awful skin I don’t know if that’s just me. However all these factors led me to consolidating some of my favourite skincare products. All these products work wonders no matter what my skin is going through. I haven’t blogged in a week and I’m sorry but being Ill is the worst 😦 I’M BACK and a little better. So why not share with you some of my favourites right now!

T Zone Clear Out Nose Pore Strips –  After seeing so many other bloggers rave about these I hopped on the bandwagon and now I know why! They’re so good to get rid of blackheads and dead skin on your nose. They’re so easy to apply and are good for all skin types as I have quite sensitive skin too.

Body Shop Seaweed Clay Mask –  I’ve always loved body shop face masks and they’re the ones I continue to use, I mean you just cannot go wrong I love this seaweed one it works amazingly! It leaves my skin feeling super smooth and hydrated, I really want to try the charcoal one too have you tried it?

Bee Good Cream Cleanser –  Another one of my favourite products is this cream cleanser which I need to repurchase asap. It is perfect for when my skin breaks out. Its so soothing to apply and washes off leaving my skin feeling 10x better than it originally was.

*Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream –  I love this facial cream its perfect to apply before applying make up and after you’ve took your make up off. It’s the perfect shield for your skin. Leaving it feeling refreshed for a whole 24hrs without a doubt. It’s easily absorbed and is compatible with all skin types too.

*Kiehls Ultra Facial Cleanser –  I love taking my make up off with this facial cleanser as it is one of the best facial washes I’ve used it leaves my skin feeling so soft and glowing. You only need the tiniest amount too and it works the same whereas other products you do need quite a bit.
