Lips - Sleek MakeUP - Matte Me Metallics

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/05/2018

To finish off this look I prep my lips with some Vaseline and then apply the Sleek matte me liquid lipstick in metallic copperplate. I’ve always been a big fan of the Sleek matte me liquid lipstick and Birthday suit was my go-to colour, however, that is about to change! This metallic copperplate is rich in colour and sits perfectly with a golden makeup look. The lipstick is longlasting and glides onto the lip with ease and full coverage.

Lip Liners - Sleek MakeUP - Eau la la lip liner

Aug/05/2018

To emphasise my eyes further I go in with the Eau la la liner in white noise. The liner is highly pigmented and can be used both as an eyeliner or lip liner and is available in 20 shades. I use a white liner as it brightens up my eyes and as I have darker skin the white stands out on my skin tone. However, I have to go heavy with my mascara to blend in the white liner.

Highlighters - Sleek MakeUP - Barekissed Illuminator

I then take the Basekissed Illuminator in the colour Casablanca and mix with my foundation and apply. Ilove using illuminators, especially in the summer as I want to have a dewy glow in the sun. The barekissed illuminator is filled with light-reflecting pigments which is suitable for all skin types and tones. However, I feel for this look I should have gone for a more golden tone that Sleek also as in their range. You can also use this illuminator after makeup on the cheekbones and body.

Foundations - Makeup Revolution - Fast Base Stick Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/05/2018

I been seeing makeup revolution range all over Instagram and on the blogs, and have been waiting to try out one of their new products! When they launched their fast base foundation sticks last week, I was dying to try these out! Available in 18 different shades, the fast base foundation sticks are the new and fastest way to apply foundation. The foundation melts into the skin covering up imperfections and giving an even and contoured complexion. I saw the YouTube tutorial of Tammi makeup, using the fast base foundation stick and since she is a similar tone to myself, I went for the shades F12 and F13. F12 is for medium to dark tones, with a neutral undertone. Whilst, F13 is for dark skin tones with a warm undertone. When applying F12, initially I was disappointed as due to the shade …Read more

Lipstick - Smashbox - Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick (All Colors)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/26/2018

This cruelty-free lipstick uses advanced polymer technology, which makes the lipstick last up to 8 hours of wear. Despite, having a matte finish the lipstick is infused with primer oil complex to condition the lips. When choosing my lipsticks, I usually go for a bright red tone, as I love a bold red lip. However, I wanted to be bold with my colour choice and chose True Grit- a deep mahogany brown lip colour. When putting on the lipstick I was fascinated with the lip applicator, shaped like actual lips, the applicator makes it easy to apply the lipstick, without a liner. I wore this lipstick during dinner and was surprised as it did not smudge or fade, which is impressive, as this lipstick does what it advertises.

Eye Shadow - Smashbox - Cover Shot Eyeshadow Palettes

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/26/2018

At first, I was not sure of the choice of colour of the cover shot eye palette, as the tones are quite dark and my usual choice of eyeshadow colour is more neutral tones. However, after swatching the colours, I was drawn to the deep reddish tones, and drifting towards the shades Throwback and Nevada. When applying the eyeshadow colours I was in love with how pigmented and rich in colour they are. The eyeshadow comes off the brush with ease, as the colour of the eyeshadow is prominent.

BB Cream - Smashbox - Camera Ready BB Cream Eyes

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/26/2018

This is my favourite product from the parcel of Smashbox goodies! Smashbox created this BB eye cream with the idea of using this product for early morning shoots in LA to brighten up, illuminate and smooth under eyes. As soon, as I started using BB eye cream, I fell in love with this product. I placed the cream under my eyes, as it covered my flaws, leaving my eyes looking brighter and my under eye skin more rejuvenated. I have since been using this product every day in my makeup routine, and I have replaced my Nars creamy concealer with this BB eye cream.

Primer/ Corrector - Smashbox - Photo Finish Primerizer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/26/2018

Their photo finish primerizer acts as both a primer and moisturiser, aiding in moisturising the skin for up to 24 hours, and increases moisture by 127%. I applied the primer into the palm of my hands and worked the product into my face. The primer felt quite light almost water-based and acted as a sheer shield to protect my pores from makeup that may settle in. The primer also aids in acting like a magnet that locks onto the foundation, achieving a smooth polished makeup look.

Liquid - Smashbox - Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/26/2018

My shade in this foundation was 4.05-Neutral tan, although I had previously been to the Smashbox’s studio in London and was colour matched; the foundation shade of colour was a little off. When applying this foundation, I realised that this foundation was a few shades darker than my usual tone and had a slight warm undertone, leaving my face orange. I applied this foundation with a beauty blender, to give off a more natural look. After applying the foundation, I used a mineralise powder to take away any shine and give off a matte finish. Despite the colour being off, the foundation is weightless and blurs imperfections with the light-diffusing sphere to enable a smooth full coverage finish. I have been wearing this foundation for the last couple of weeks and can confirm that the …Read more
