How I Correct and Brighten The Under Eyes

The whole world seems to be tired and correctors and concealers are absolutely huge at the minute. There are so many products out there on the market for making your under eyes nice and bright. I wanted to do a post basically just to cut through the bullshit and give you guys a step by step to achieving light and bright under eyes. It is hard to find products that work really well because they are all marketed in the same ways. They all seem so similar it is hard to see what will work for you.

I do these steps if I have had a particularly late night or if I have had one or two glasses of the wine the previous evening and it is taking its toll on how I look. Please bear in mind that these are products that have worked for me and for my clients when I have been doing bridal makeup. I am not saying that this will 100% work for you, but it should certainly help!

Top 10 Foundations

I am somewhat of a foundation junkie. They are by far my favourite makeup item. I just love how with one item it can completely transform your face and make you more confident about yourself. That is what makeup is all about to me.

Earlier in the month I did a post all about my holy grail foundations and people seemed to really enjoy it, so I thought I would do a post all about my top 10 foundations. So, get snack and a cup of tea because I can see this post turning into a long one. Without any more rambling on, I will just jump into the post!

My Favourite High End Concealer

I love a good concealer. If a new concealer comes out and it has full coverage in the name you can guarantee that I am going to be picking it up more or less straight away. I have darkness and hyperpigmentation so it is important that I have a full coverage concealer in my drawer at all time.

Over the year, I have tried so many concealers and done lots of reviews here on my blog about them. So, I thought that I would do a post all about my ultimate favourite concealer and with it been me, you know that it is going to be a full coverage product.

I have chosen this concealer because time after time when I use it I just get a really nice full coverage look. I have mentioned it a couple times already here on my blog so you may know what I am going to say next, but it is the Becca Ultimate Coverage Crème Concealer.

Products with Pretty Packaging

There are so many products that are out on the market at the minute that have such beautiful packaging. I wasn’t planning on doing this post, but I was sat at my vanity getting my makeup out and getting ready to take some blog images and I was just in awe of some of the products that I had on my desk.
I know I sound like I am 900 years old now, but when I was younger everything just seemed cheap when it came to makeup. Even if I would order from MAC the packaging never seemed anything special, now when I look for products it is one of the most important things that I look for, it sounds silly. But when you think about it a huge part of my blog is the photography aspect so for products to look nice it is a massive bonus.
So in this post I am going to let you know the 5 products that I have in my collection that are just stunning, these are the items that I don’t mind leaving out on display on my vanity because they are just so pretty to look at. I will warn you right now that this post is going to be very heavy on the Charlotte Tilbury, but when a girl loves rose gold as much as I do you are going to know for sure that I would love that packaging!

My Contouring Essentials

I am obsessed with contouring. I have been since the craze first arrived and I have been ever since. Whenever I do my makeup I have to contour because if not I feel like my face is as big of the sun and like it is a big blob.

I love both liquid, cream and powder contouring, but I don’t do I everyday because I just don’t have the time. Trust me if I did have the time to do it, I would because I really do love it and I love how it looks when it is done.

So, I wanted to do a post and let you know my contouring essentials. These products that I am going to mention are for all forms of contouring and there should be something for everybody in here. I just want to say that just because these products have worked so well for me, doesn’t mean they will be the same for you, but I really do swear by these products!

My Favourite Eyebrow Products

For years now I have been absolutely obsessed with eyebrows. For me the motto is the bolder the better. Which means that over the years I have accumulated quite a collection of eyebrow products, so I thought I would give you the rundown on what my favourite products are.
When I went to beauty school as some call it I had never made any kind of attempt with my eyebrows in the past. I am a victim of over plucking and butchering my eyebrows with the tweezers when I was growing up, so I just always ruled out ever having eyebrows like Cara Delevingne.
So, I used to put on my full face of makeup, I even used to get foundation accidently over my brows. The worst part is that I never attempted to wipe the foundation off. Then I would just leave them, I wouldn’t fill them in, I would just leave them looking near enough non-existent on my face. Now, if I do all my makeup and leave my brows until last I feel like an alien until they are in place, it just makes my forehead look huge!

My Holy Grail Foundations

Everybody knows that I am a hoarder of foundations. If a new foundation comes out I have to try it straight away. Even if it is dewy and I know that it won’t work very well for my oily skin type, I will still get it just to give it a go. Recently I have been trying a lot of new products out so I have got new holy grail foundations so I thought I would write a post and let you know.

These foundations I have just found to work really well with my skin and my skin tone. I have oily to combination skin. Most of my face is normal and I have no issues with. Then around my nose I get a touch oily and on my forehead, I can get the occasional dry patch. But, these foundations seem to battle through all the issues and just look flawless.

This post was meant to be about just 1 foundation but I have been finding it too hard to narrow it down, so instead I am going to let you know about my top 3. Without any more rambling on, I will jump into the post…
