Merry Christmas!!! Today is Christmas Day and what better video to put up than a festive make up look? I decided to steer clear of the standard red and gold look for this one and focused on purple and shimmer instead. I use some trusted favorites and use some brand spanking new products as well. I hope you enjoy and have a great Christmas/ whatever holiday you might be celebrating this time of year.
Purple & silver festive make up look
If there is one time of the year that is perfect for a luxury make up splurge it’s the Holiday season. Personally I love bringing out my luxury make up for Christmas and New Year’s make up looks. I don’t know why I don’t wear them more on the regular, but the hefty price tag probably has something to do with it. One of my favorite luxury make up brands is Charlotte Tilbury and I have a few new bits by her to review.
Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes mascara
Charlotte Tilbury The Vintage Vamp eyeshadow quad
Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Cheat lip pencil
Charlotte Tilbury Bond Girl Matte Revolution lipstick
Where I love me some higher end make up, I couldn’t go without my drugstore gems. They may be a touch harder to find, but when you do, they are there to stay. So I thought it would be good to show you some of those drugstore gems. These are the products that I think are very affordable indeed, but which still work like a charm, just like any high end product would. Let me introduce you to 9 products that give you the most bang for your buck.
9 make up products that give you the most bang for your buck
Haul time! Last week I showed you what I packed when I went to Rome, today I’m showing you the bits I brought home. Be aware: I shopped to my heart’s content. Why? Because Italy has Sephora, which means instant access to brands I can only dream of getting my hands on. So that is where my focus lies. I also shopped at Kiko and at an Italian beauty store where I bumped into The Balm, which makes this a make up laden video. Hope you enjoy!
I came. I saw. I shopped.
New Sunday, new video, new hair! In today’s video I would like to talk you through 10 of my holy grail items. Where I moaned about some of my disappointing products a few weeks ago, I decided to give that video a more positive follow up with a holy grail product video. Which items do I love so much I repurchase them time and time again?
These 10 items get a big ole thumbs up from me!
When you keep a blog like me, you try a lot of products. And not all of those products you try are going to work out for you. That’s exactly what has been happening to me lately. Sure, some of these products still work, or I can make them work. But because they aren’t 100% right for me, I know I will get little use out of them. Because no matter how much I love make up and beauty products, there’s a reason why some things become your favorite and other do not. Time to talk to you about some of my beauty and make up duds.
That’s my disappointing ‘meh’ face
Lately I’ve been wondering what I would do if my make up collection suddenly disappeared or what I will do now that some of my older make up products are running out or going bad. I’ve been loving make up for more than 8 years now and where many products from that time have long since left my make up collection, there are a few products that have truly stood the test of time. These are the products I go back to time after time. If I don’t know what to wear, if I’m stuck in a make up rut, no matter the problem: these problems will see me through. Meet the high end make up products I could not live without.
What high end make up do you swear by?
