Revolution Fast Base Foundation Stick | REVIEW

Yes I am late to the hype with this product but it was so hard to get hold of, I managed to grab one about 3 weeks ago and like to test it for a couple of weeks before giving a true opinion.

Now, when it comes to stick foundations I am not the biggest lover, I have previously tried the Makeup Forever HD foundation stick after hearing sooo many good things about it but I absolutely hated it and with the near £30 price point it just wasn’t worth it in my eyes. But I am a big lover of Revolution makeup and at only £5 I just had to try this foundation stick.

This foundation comes in 18 shades which is amazing for the drugstore as usually there are only about 7/8 different shades? I picked up F8 which on the Superdrug website is described as being for ‘medium skin tones with yellow undertone’ I always wear fake tan so always look for a foundation with a yellow undertone rather than pink.

I have quite dry skin so was sceptical before using this as I usually tend to go for a liquid foundation that I can blend in with a sponge. I used a budding brush to blend the foundation in and then went over it with a damp sponge. I heard that this foundation was very dewy and easy to move around so it needed setting but with my skin type I very rarely set my face with a powder as my foundation never moves and I don’t want to dry out my skin even more so the first time I used it I didn’t set it and after about 6 hours it had started to go very oily and even coming off my chin.

The next time I used it I did use a setting powder but only where the foundation came away before and it lasted well but I still wasn’t overly impressed with the product. However after a couple more uses I realised how much I actually prefer it to some of my higher end foundations! Everyone needs to try this foundation and now I am excited to try the foundations from the Revolution Pro range!

Slogans and Statement Stripes

I am so happy it’s finally nice weather in England, I love spring/summer fashion so much and every blogger knows how much easier the sun and lighter nights makes taking photos!

I have recently found a new found love for mom jeans, I have always been a skinny jean kinda gal however mom jeans are just soo much comfier and just an absolute dream to wear so I will definitely be on the look out for some more.

I am also absolutely loving the colour red at the minute, can you tell? It is just such a gorgeous colour to incorporate in to an outfit. o b s e s s e d . . .

Full outfit will be linked below.

Makeup Revolution – Conceal and Define concealer | REVIEW

Okay so everyone and their dogs are talking about this makeup revolution conceal and define concealer at the minute, it is such a hyped product and for only £4 it is an absolute steal.

DSC_1305 EDIT.jpg

I went in to my local superdrug to pick one up and went for the shade C3, I like my under eye to be quite bright and this was the lightest one that didn’t have pink undertones however I do want to get shade C6 for when I have tanned or just want less of a bright undereye.

Of course, the same as everyone else as soon as I saw the doe foot applicator I thought of the tarte shape tape concealer but for a fraction of the price. The formula is so thick but also creamy and very blendable. I use a damp beautyblender for my concealer because I always tend to crease so don’t like too much product, I struggle to find a concealer due to this reason however the Makeup Revolution concealer is by far the best – yes I still crease but compared to other products it is very minimal.

I would recommend anyone to go and buy this concealer, it is such a bargain! I can see 2018 being a very good year for Makeup Revolution…

Sophisticated chique

I am obsessed with this outfit, I have been loving the look of blazers for so long I just needed to get my hands on one, I just love how they make any outfit look smart but also makes you feel like a boss lady.

Every girl now seems to own a gucci belt and as nice as they are there is no way I would pay the £240 price tag so I picked up this belt for £3 from Primark, it is not trying to be a ‘fake’ version of a Gucci belt it just has the stand out gold rings and I am loving it.

Cosy knit and pearls

Hey everyone, it feels so strange to be writing this after almost a full year without writing a single blog post. I used to absolutely love blogging but somewhere along the line I just fell out of love with it. Around christmas time I started thinking about all sorts of different posts I could do for my blog and different outfits and I started to miss the whole blogsphere world. So here I am… new year, fresh start on the blog and it feels so good to be back.

Every girl should own a pair of knee high boots right? I live in mine from October until April. They can make any outfit look instantly better. This jumper is so cosy and I just love all the pearl detailing on it, I paired it with a leather skirt and tights and the pearls just make the outfit so much more interesting and less boring.

My Tanning Routine

DSC_0030edit.jpg

I have been obsessed with using fake tan for years, my first tan being St Moriz (if you know, you know) When I was around 15. I am now 21 and think it’s safe to say i’ve had my fair share of disasters but feel like I have spent enough years experimenting to find a routine that works well for me.

The first thing I do when it comes to tanning is soak in the bath the night before and shave, exfoliate and all that jazz. I always shave the night prior as otherwise I find it stings and doesn’t go on as well as it should because of my pores being open, the reason I get a bath instead of shower is so I can fully soak my body to make sure I remove any old tan before I put a fresh layer on.

So the night after that I will tan, I prefer to tan on the night so I can sleep in it and it will develop as I sleep rather than being a sticky mess all day and having to worry about what to wear etc. A few hours before I will moisturise my face as this acts like a barrier cream and stops it clinging to any dry patches and by putting it on a few hours before it sinks into the skin more. I will also put some on my elbows, knees and any dry areas I may have just before tanning to stop build up.

My favourite ever tan is the cocoa brown one hour tan, I have been using this tan for a good 2 years now and it is honestly the best I have tried although I do branch out to try new ones, nothing so far has ever beat this.

Below is my before and after photo:DSC_0004 edit

Mom jeans and fishnets

Don’t get me wrong I love dressing girly and feminine but sometimes there is just nothing better than throwing a bit more of an edgy outfit together. These distressed topshop mom jeans are my actual favs and they are so so comfy. I love that fishnets have come back into fashion, they can help spice up any outfit!
