I am 25 years old, and a total makeup addict. I have a YouTube channel as well as a blog, this is where I share my love of makeup and skincare. I am a professionally trained makeup artist and I have worked in the film and fashion industry.
My skin is combination, oily t-zone and dry cheeks. However in winter, my skin becomes really dry. I do get a few blemishes, mostly around my chin. My skin is also quite sensitive as well.
This I find is a brilliant cleanser, one pump is enough to remove all of my makeup, including my eye makeup. I found that by lightly massaging this into my skin it broke down the makeup and was easy to wipe off with a hot flannel. My skin felt really clean and soft after using this cleanser! I do like to go in again with this cleanser but only taking half a pump to allow the cleanser to cleanse my skin. This leaves my skin feeling deeply cleaned, hydrated and fresh!
These palettes I find are amazing! They are really affordable and come in a range of shades. My favourites include Nude Bronze, Nude Rose and the Matt Nude Rose. They do have a bit of fall out, so I would recommend tapping off the excess from your brush before applying the shade to the lid. But the blend out beautifully and the Nude Rose palette is perfect for transition colours in the crease! These palettes are some of the best out there from the drugstore and are so affordable!!
I really wanted to try this as I LOVE the Lasting Perfection Concealer, however this was really disappointing. I managed to get a good colour match. But I had hoped that this foundation would be similar to the concealer, full coverage, long lasting, not caky. But that just wasn't the case. After an hour of wearing this foundation, it had disappeared into nothing. Really really disappointing!! I would not recommend this to anyone!
If you are looking for a natural everyday contour, this is the product for you! I believe there are three shades, ranging from light to dark. For a very light contour I use the lightest shade, but if I want more of a chiseled effect I go in with the middle shade! The contour sticks are easy to use and glide onto the skin, but more importantly they are really affordable and don't blend out to nothing!! I love my contour stick and use it most days!!
This eyeliner isn't going anywhere! Once you apply it, its on for the day! Which I love! It doesn't crease or crack or crumble. Its highly pigmented, and the liner tip glides onto the lid! I did find that I had to use waterproof eye makeup remover to remove this! But its really easy to use and the colour range is also really good!!
This is my go to, favourite nail polish base coat. I have been using this for years and have repurchased it many many many times. I love using this as it does help my nails grow a bit faster, but also when my nails grow they are stronger than they were before! This also works at protecting my nails from discolouration from any nail polish that I may use!
If you haven't tried this base coat and you want stronger, healthier nails! This is something you MUST try!!!
I have been using this heat protect spray for about a month now, and I really like it. The scent is gorgeous! Really fruity. This spray seems to be protecting my hair (how can you really tell?). But I will say that it doesn't leave my hair crispy or glued together. It works brilliant on damp and dry hair! I would repurchase it again definitely. But I have a feeling this will last me a long time!
I have repurchased these nose strips again and again! If you are looking for something thats going to remove your black heads and you can actually see those blackheads in the strip removed, then you will love this! It removes all of my blackheads on my nose, I use this about twice a month, the charcoal and ash really work on drawing out the crap on your nose! I have done a full blog post about these strips here; https://rubirubimakeup.wordpress.com/2017/04/13/4279/ I would highly recommend these! They truly work and are so affordable!
Normally I don't stray away from Soap & Glory body scrubs, but this caught my eye and I picked it up. This scrub really scrubs your body, the actual scrub particles are apricot kernel. It really hydrates your skin whilst getting rid of all the dead skin on your body. The downside is these tubs aren't that big, meaning it won't last you that long! But the scent of this, and the actual working of the scrub is brilliant and it works!
I recently tried these out, and fell in love. Normally buying eye patches can be so expensive, but these are really affordable at £1.49. I put mine in the fridge over night, and used them in the morning the pressure that they slightly add under your eye, is really relaxing, because they are cool they instantly de-puff your under eye area and refresh your skin. I found these to be the perfect step to add into my skincare routine when I'm really busy and just need to chill out.
