I realised today that I've totally neglected beauty on my blog! So here's a quick post on the products I use.
I've made a huge beauty order on Gmarket (Etude House, Tony Moly and Baviphat) so I'll be reviewing those when they arrive too :)
Soap and Glory Flake Away
I got this for Christmas from my sister, and it's a really good exfoliator! Perfect for pre-fake tanning!
L'Oreal Sublime Bronze
I buy this because it's reasonably affordable, haha. Always mix it with some cheap body lotion before using, and I get okay results, not streaky but not the best colour. Then again, I tend to go orange with real tan too, so I'm not too fussed.
Palmers Cocoa Butter
Gorgeous smell, cheap and unbeatable moisturiser, I love this stuff!
Daily facial care
Boots Botanics pore perfecting foaming face wash
I have trouble with acne (my mum still has it, so I think I always will do) and this is really good for getting a deep clean, but calming my skin at the same tiem. Scrubs agitate my skin and make the problem worse, but this one is really gentle yet makes my skin feel really clean and refreshed!
Dr Nick Lowe Oil Control Day Cream
Because of my acne, it's difficult to find a day cream which won't clog the skin. I'm going to start trying BB cream, but in the mean time I like this day cream, because it's very light but helps my make up go on nice! My skin gets very dry sometimes because I'm trying to fight the acne, but this helps with that a lot.
Emergency facial care
Champneys SOS mask
If I need to clear my skin when it's really bad, I use this. It's really strong stuff, and does actually sting a little, but it really works. IT doesn't dry my skin either, leaves it quite soft.
No. 7 Total Renewal
This is my Microdermabrasion. This is for if I have somewhere to be the next day and have blackheads, or if I have acne scars. It takes the top layer of skin off, and the skin will glow afterwards! However, it leaves me very prone to acne after using, so it's only if I urgently want good skin for one day >_<
Sanctuary Facial Oil
For wrinkles, I use this on the morning of a shoot :)
Canmake Bubble Grape
Bought this in Pink Latte, really love it! It's a super sweet artificial grape scent, like sweets!
Nails - I have too many to share, so here are my favourite two
Gosh Magic Star
Fun to layer over other colours, it has a really fine glitter :)
I can't wear nail varnish to work, so I need something which goes on easy, and I can wear in one layer since I'll have to take it off again in two days. This one is perfect for that, I love it <3
Make up - part 1 (I do my make up strictly in three stages, I have OCD.)
Estee Lauder Nutritious Mineral powder
It's so good at calming my skin, and makes my skin tone look really even! When I wear this, people tell me I have good skin, and I really don't so I tend to think this is miricle make up XD
Estee Lauder Doublewear foundation
I only wear this under my powder if I'm going to be photographed. It's a bit harsh for my skin ^^;
Gosh touch up
No7 Instant Radiance Concealer
I used to buy Babor concealer, but I don't have that luxury any more! This one is ok at covering my dark circles, but not as good as the Babor one!
Make up part two
Barry M Blusher number 2
Love this blusher, it's truly pink!
New id blusher
Had this maybe 5 years? I love the tone, very light sweet pink. I use it as a base blusher, then add the stronger Barry M one on top.
Elizabeth Arden Eye Fix
To keep all my eyeliner, eyeshadow and eyelashes in place :)
Bourjois little round pot
For highlighting! I love Bourjois quality, this white really shows up well.
Make up part three
Elizabeth Arden powder eyeliner
I use this for my lower eyeliner, to get a nice soft line.
Unknown eyelash glue
It's actually double eyelid glue. It comes with eyelashes I order from Taiwan on Ebay, and it's super strong stuff! It's rollercoaster and water ride proof :)
Anyone got liquid eyeliner recommendations? Something really black? I just use this cos it's cheap!
Boots own brand, I only bought it because it was cheap!
Soap and Glory Sexy Motherpucker
Plumpening lipgloss! Love it :)
I keep my eyelashes a secret, sorry :p
I was feeling down the other day, so my boyfriend bought me this Easter Hello Kitty! I was really happy ;_;
