‘Im writing this post with a severe case of holiday blues, having just returned from an amazing holiday in Portugal. After a week of fab weather, I’ve picked up a lovely wee tan – but while I was there (and as always) I was super conscious of keeping my skin safe.
This Origins GinZing™ SPF 40 Energy-Boosting Moisturizer with Sheer Tint Release, is designed to help your skin be more hydrated, energized, perfected and protected. After purchasing it at this years Dedicated to Girls event, I packed it up with the rest of my holiday essentials & lotions, ready to give it a try.
Following the call of the disco ball this weekend, we went back to the 70s and created some retro looks with fantastic clothing and accessories from The Closet – Vintage Aberdeen.
I’ve heard lots of good things about Nip+Fab’s range, so when a colleague mentioned that Superdrug are currently offering half price on their products, I couldn’t resist trying some out!
Ordering online, I went for Nip+Fab Dragon’s Blood Fix Plumping Mask 50ml as well as adding Nip+Fab Dragons Blood Fix Cleansing Pads x60 to my basket.
Everyone loves a bit of snapchat action, so if you’re looking for some inspiration this Halloween, why not try looking at some of the filters. Whether it’s classics such as the dog face or floral headband – or newer ones such as the dear or diamond glasses, there’s plenty to get creative with.
I’m sure you’re all out enjoying this brilliant weather that we’re having…finally a summer!! 🎉 (Even if it does last just a few days!). However, if the temperature rising also sends your Make-Up running, then you need to sort this out! Summer dresses aren’t as cute when accompanied by shiny faces and panda eyes!!
If your finding that your Make-Up melts off your skin within the first 5 minutes of being in the sun – there are some tips that you can add into your routine to reduce this. I’ve listed my top 5 below, but if you have anymore, then feel free to comment and share!
My skin had been looking a little on the dull side, so when I saw a half price offer on itison for a DiamondTome Facial at Tiffany Hair and Beauty (Aberdeen), I quickly snapped it up.
The DiamondTome facial is a skin resurfacing system and the latest technology in microdermabrasion. It uses a diamond encrusted wand to vacuum and exfoliate the skin, reducing or eliminating signs of ageing, such as discolouration, fine lines and texture.
You might have seen my earlier post on Mixology @ Paramount – Aberdeen (if you haven’t you should def go check it out 😜), but I thought I’d also do a quick post on my makeup from the evening.
To do this denim smokey eye, I used a mixture of shades and eyeshadow textures…
Applying MAC’s Cream Colour Base (Pearl Frost) as a Primer, I built up the colour with a neutral shade (Combust) from Urban Decay’s NAKED Smoky Palette. Using ‘Password‘ and ‘Dagger‘ (also from the Smoky Palette) to build up the colour and depth in the crease, I then used a flat brush to apply Chanel’s Apparition Illusion d’ombre eyeshadow across the lid – before finishing with MAC’s ‘Grey’ Glitter pigment.
Adding a thin line of liquid liner across the top last line and using a denim eyeliner and ‘Dagger‘ shadow along the bottom lashes, the look is then finished off by applying some false lashes 😀
