Blogmas Day 10: A Festive Make up Look

Hey everyone,

A couple of days ago I did a how much is my face and I promised you a tutorial on the look, so here you go! Enjoy! xx

First of all I use the Smashbox 24hr Photo Finish Eye Primer. This is perfect for keeping any shadow put all day and it doesn't crease at all!

Next, I use the shade Naked all over my lid, this is the most gorgeous warm matte brown shade and it is perfect in Autumn winter. I then use the shade Half Baked all of the lid. Finally, I use the shade Darkhorse in the outer corner to deepen the look.

Next I use my Soap and Glory Supercat Skinny Liquid Eyeliner to create a precise cat eye look. This is honestly the best liquid eyeliners I have tried and it's the best for creating a really precise flick.

To finish off my eyes, I use the Maybelline Go Colossal Extreme Volume Mascara! This is my favourite mascara by far, it creates a really nice natural look but can also be built up to create a really dramatic look!

Under my eyes and on the bridge of my nose I use the Seventeen Stay Time Concealer in the shade Extra Fair. On any of areas on my face, I use the Soap and Glory Kick Ass Blur and Brighten concealer in the shade light. This is a really blendable light weight concealer and it matches my skin tone perfectly.

Kiko Free Spirit is my lip of choice so far this autumn-winter. It was a limited edition product so it is no longer sold but many other brands do very similar shades. It is a gorgeous light plum with quite pink undertones.

So, I hope you enjoyed this post, and I will see you all tomorrow,

Love Lou

Blogmas Day 8: My Winter Skincare Routine

Hey everyone,

I really enjoy it whenever I have a proper skincare routine that I do every night. In winter, so far I have established a pretty permanent one so I thought I'd share it with you all! Enjoy! xxx

The first thing I use is either Soap and Glory's Peaches and Clean Cleansing Milk or Garnier's Micellar Cleansing Water.

If I use Peaches and Clean, I put 2 pumps on my fingertips and start to work it into my skin making sure I get rid of any last bits of make up. For my eyes, I do a really small pump, split it between my two hands and gently rub my eyes until all of the product has come off. I then use a wet flannel to get rid of any excess product still on my face.

However, if I use the Garnier Cleansing Water, I nearly fully soak a cotton pad with the product and just move the cotton pad across my face, focussing on my eyes. This is really quick and easy for if I'm rushing a bit.

I then use my Nivea Rich Regenerating Night Cream. I have this in a pot (you can also get it in a tube) so I just get a bit of product and massage it all over my face.

Next I use my Simple Spotless Skin Rapid Spot Zapper on any blemishes and around my nose.

Finally, I use my Body Shop Born Lippy Pink Berry Lip Balm and my Zoella Beauty Wonder Hand. These are 2 of my most favourite products to use in autumn-winter.

So, I hope you all enjoyed this post, thank you so much for reading, and I will see you all very, very soon,

Love Lou
