Blogmas day 5

Hi guys

Today I’ve spent the day watching Christmas films and ordering some more some presents and baking ingredient’s online. I plan to start my Christmas baking in the next few days so expect posts on the results.

I’ve painted my nails all festive, not the usual red and green although that might happen at a later date.

I’ve gone for grey gel looking finish with a glitter topcoat. I’ve used the gelly polish from Barry m in chai as I used one of these polishes on my toes for my holiday and loved it, it applies beautifully and gives a glossy finish that is hard to chip, which is good for me as nail polish chips so easily for me. anyway as for the glitter coat that’s NYC in lights camera glitter.

Fresh Face

Hi guys, I would love to have been sitting at my new desk/vanity set up surrounded by makeup but alas that is not the case. I’m writing this in bed on my laptop feeling like ick.

This time of year I love the leaves falling, wearing boots and snuggly jumpers, not to mention the Smokey eye looks and berry lips but the one downside comes in the form of a cold, something I had been trying my best to avoid but unfortunately it got me so cue the cough, fever, bunged up nose and all the loveliness that’s comes with it.

So as I’m all wrapped up and drinking my tea I thought what better time then to write about something I had been meaning to write about for a while makeup removal.

Now I know I did do a post about some skin care previously  this is more about removing makeup, and the products I’m going to talk about you might have seen other beauty bloggers write about but this is just my opinion on them.

First up is micellar water, this stuff has been raved about so much its not even funny, as it was a hyped product I was a little sceptical about it but I gave it a try and fell in love. essentially its a cleansing water, so all you need is a cotton pad and your good to go. it removes my makeup so well even red lips and stubborn eyeliner which other makeup removers have struggled with, without tugging on the skin or leaving my skin feeling dry afterwards.

It has become my go to product and the second product is micellar wipes. they were my godsend while I was on holiday, all the benefits of the water in a convenient wipe. Handy for taking on holiday or overnight stay, or for those times when we are feeling a little lazy when it comes to taking our makeup off. unlike other makeup wipes these leave my skin feeling hydrated, others I have used in the past claim to be alcohol free but still left my skin feeling like it was in desperate need of a drink.

I will admit both of these products are not cheap but are by no means expensive. you definitely get what you pay for with them. they are available at most places where you can buy cleansers and face wipes and are currently on offer at superdrug.

Hit and Miss

Hi everyone, sorry this going up a day late but as I’m currently on holiday and I’ve had to wait till I know what the Wi-Fi situation was and at the moment its pretty good, if you would like me to do a post on what I’ve taken within me on my holiday feel free to comment and let me know. anyway before I start rambling on with the post. now liquid eyeliner can give you the ability to do fine lines or thick lines or a dramatic cat eye or basically anything you imagination can come up with, I think as with any eyeliner it can be tricky to use and does take practice to use, but bare in mind this does give a more bold look than pencil and can show flaws but the overall look is worth it, personally I’m still practicing and improving, YouTube videos do help.

This one from MUA is as its called wet, but it does go on beautifully even for a novice like myself and has become a fast favourite. the thin nib allows me the precision I want, and it wears well, no fading or flaking like you can get with some. it’s also not a bad price only £2 from Superdrug

The next one is from NYC and probably the only product from them I’ve not liked. and surprisingly I can no longer find it on superdrugs website. It cost me about £3. Unlike the previous one this one is more like and angled felt tip, however the nib was a bit strange with cut out bits not unlike a higher brand one which is supposed to make doing a classic cat eye easy but this dragged and scratched my eye lid and the finish wasn’t fantastic either. I was thoroughly disappointed with this product.
