New in for October: Beauty Haul!

Hey there and welcome back to my blog. Throughout this month I picked up a few Beauty bits to try out and to restock on, so I thought I would share the bits I bought with you all as I know youse all seem to love a good haul. I hope you enjoy.

The first product that I picked up is the Revolution Brow Pomade in Graphite. I’ve been using the MAC Fluidline Brow Gelcreme for quite a while now but as I’ve nearly used it up, I thought I would try out a cheaper alternative. This one is much more of a cool brown shade and not as red toned as the MAC one which does give the appearance of more natural brows and I really love the way it’s been working for me. I can not recommend enough and it’s really well priced as well (I believe it’s £6). 

Also from Revolution, I picked up the Brow Tint in Dark Brown and I was so excited to try this out. However, I wasn’t too happy with how this worked out. The front of my brows looked really blocky (if that’s the right way to explain it) and they looked so harsh. I don’t know whether I applied it wrong but I think I’ll stick to my usual tints in future. You can read all about my brow tints here. 

I absolutely love Zoeva brushes and I’ve been wanting a new highlight brush for a while so I decided to get the 134 Luxe Powder Fusion. It’s actually the perfect size for when you want to apply to highlight in smaller areas like the top of the nose or you just want to put a little bit on your cheekbones and it’s been working much better than the fan brush that I was using as it can pick up more product too!!

I also picked up is the Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation in the shade Ivory. I used this foundation quite a while ago and I remember it not suiting my skin very well, but I thought I’d try it again which I am so glad I did as it’s quickly snuck it’s way into my everyday makeup routine.

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you would know that I absolutely love the Facial Sprays from Mario Badescu and after running out of both my Rose Water and Lavender one, I decided to try the Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea one and I’m excited to try this one out. These are perfect to rehydrate your skin, to use before or even after you’ve done your makeup instead of setting spray. If you haven’t tried these yet, you definitely should!!

I’ve been in need of a new eye cream for a while now and I wanted to try the Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment, but I thought it was a little pricey and instead went for the Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream. This is so soothing and has really hydrated my eye area which is usually quite dry. Also Hyaluronic acid is really good for the skin so I know that my skin will really benefit from using it. 

Last but not least, I picked up the Revolution PRO HD Smokey Eyeliner in Black. I’ve been getting really into using eyeliner on my water line recently, so I thought I’d pick up a new one. I do prefer browns on my water line but I thought I could use a black one in my collection anyway. I haven’t actually tried this out yet, but if I do like it I’m sure you will hear about it on my blog soon!!

Until Next Time,

Transitioning into Autumn: Autumnal Makeup Look! | Part 2/2.

Autumnal makeup is probably my favourite type of looks to create as I love warm and cozy colours with a vampy twist. I thought for today’s post, that I would share one of the looks that I have created so far this season and I absolutely love how it turned out. 

I like to the keep the base quite simple and go all out for the eyes and lip so the products I used on my face include the Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation, which is actually new to my collection and I have been loving using it as it gives a semi matte finish which I think is perfect for what I want in a foundation, particularly for this time of year. I then use the tiniest bit of the Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer in C3, under my eyes and on my chin. I then take my beauty blender and bake my under eyes with the NYX Banana Powder and apply it to my under eyes, my chin and the centre of my forehead to sort of bake with it. To set the rest of my face I just used a Natural Collection Pressed Powder and then bronzer up my face with my new go-to Benefit Hoola Lite.

After bronzing, I take more of the Banana Powder and use it to bake under my bronzer before I contour. I find that using translucent powders can create a white line under the contour but this seems to sharpen the contour without it looking to much of a sudden change in colour. I then take an angled contour brush with the NYX Taupe Blush and contour my nose and cheeks slightly. To highlight, I use the W7 Glowcomotion which is gold toned and is quickly becoming a go-to for this time of year as its super pigmented and glowy ... I’m actually obsessed. 

For brows I decided to switch it up from my usual bold brows and use a pencil instead which is the Benefit Goof Proof in number 4 and obviously set it with my trusty Natural Collection Clear Mascara. 

The Imogenation x Revolution Palette has been the palette that I've been reaching for since I bought it, as it is soo versatile meaning I can create lots of different look with it including more natural looks and bold ones too! To start off I took Pinky Promise and Imagine and blended them through the crease as my transition colours. I then took Mills and Sorry not Sorry on the outer corner and blended them through the crease. I then packed Pinky Promise onto my lids and placed Forever Friend on the inner corner. I finished off the eyes with the Soap & Glory Thick and Fast Mascara.

I’m always changing my mind about lip colour because there are so many autumnal ones I love, so I did include a few options including Whirl, Flat Out Fabulous, Ruby Woo and Party Line which are all from MAC. But for this look I chose Party Line as I thought it looked best.
