An Ode To Dry Shampoo

Hello lovelies hope your all well, dry shampoo has been a hair savior of mine from the very day I discovered it. It has always saved my hair life on those lazy (aka greasy) morning days when my hair is just so flat and lifeless. However now that I have coloured hair I reach for my dry shampoos even more now since washing it every day makes my colour fade more.

Most times I will spray dry shampoo on my hair by sectioning the hair vertically and spraying from a distance. I will then leave it in the hair for about 1 min or 2 just so that the product soaks up all the oil. 

I then get a big brush and brush out my hair from the roots making sure to brush up rather than down. 

If I see any white chalky bits left I just simply spray on some leave in conditioner and it takes the white stuff away. 

Batiste Dry Shampoo has to be my favourite dry shampoo till I find something better, out of the ones I have tried this one is the most effective in getting rid of the oil and making it stay non-oily too. The other dry shampoos I have tried they tend to soak up all the oil but mid way through the day my hair just looks worse. 

I go through cans and cans of Batist and my favourite has to be the cherry one and the tropical one. I also carry a miniature version of Batiste in my bag and it always comes in handy. 

Are you a huge fan of dry shampoo like me?

Current Summer Go To Base ☼

Hello lovelies, hope your all well. We are right in the middle of summer at the moment (well UK summer) and I have found myself reaching for the same base products as my little base routine makes sure that my foundation doesn't budge or slide off my face in the hot weather. 

I have also found myself doing certain things which make my foundation last longer, and that is mixing my Nars Sheer Glow Foundation together with the Collection Concealer. Now I love my Nars Sheer Glow on its own but in the summer days and my oily skin it does tend to slide off, but once I mixed in a tiny bit of the Collection concealer it made a massive difference since the concealer is quite matte and thick and changed the texture of the foundation. Doing this definitely made my foundation last longer as well.  

The next thing I do is go in with my under eye concealer and that is the MAC Studio Finish Concealer, I have terrible dark circles and this is the only thing close in my make up collection that actually makes a difference in concealing those dark semi-circles. I found the best way to apply under eye concealer is to use less and only applying it in the inner corner in a V shape.  

To set it all off I am lovinnnnn' my Seventeen Miracle Matte Pressed Powder, I remember picking this up as a 'temporary' powder until I find a better one, but since then I haven't looked back and this is definitely far from my temporary powder as you can tell from how much I have used it. The powder really is a savior for oily skin and sets the make up in a nice matte finish. Although sometimes this can look a tad bit too matte for summer this is where the final product comes in my base routine. 

The Boujous Cream Blush in {Tropical Coral} is a beautiful coral blush and just makes you look so healthy and glowy. I think this blush would suit all skin types and its so pretty on. Although its a cream blush it dries to a matte finish and the shimmer in the blush can only be seen in the sunlight so this is a must see when you go to your local Boujous stand. 

I would love to know what base product you have been loving this summer?

The Kylie Jenner Inspired Lip

Hello lovelies hope you all well, in the recent months Kylie Jenner's make-up particularly her lips have really caught my attention, her make up is just stunning along with her fashion sense too. The picture that really inspired me was this one here.

I'm loving her nudy-pinky-browny lip colour but haven't found a lipstick that matches the picture (if anyone knows what lip colour she is wearing I would love to know) but in the meantime I came up with my own little combination to create a nudey-pink colour.

The main lip product I used was the Max Factor Color Elixir Lip Liner in the shade {04 Pink Princess} I really love this lip liner its not too drying for a lip liner that is, and I like how it glides on the lips smoothly and doesn't tug like other lip liners I have used.

However wearing this on its own was a little bit too drying so I used a minimal amount of the third colour in the Bobbie Brown Lip Pallete which has beautiful shades in it and I should use it more but on their own they just dont sit right on my lips, which is why mixing it with other lipsticks solves that problem. I also patted on slightly MAC {Chatterbox} just to make the lip combination last that bit longer.

What has your favourite lip combination been?

Visual Snippets: Birthday Goodies

Hello lovelies hope your all well ^.^ it was my 20th birthday recently and I had the most amazing time, aside from the best moments and food I had, i'm also very smitten with some of the gifts I got from my amazing best friend and a particular pair of shoes that I got myself (they were on sale, only way I can justify it) I thought I would share them with you because I feel very lucky and just over the moon really.

Like I said I feel very lucky and thankful for everything, becoming 20 feels very weird to me, just the thought that the word 'teen' wont be pronounced when I say my age to people makes me scared that I have to start behaving like a proper adult haha 

I would love to know what is on your birthday wishlist?

New In: Skincare

Hello lovelies hope your all well, it has been a while since I last blogged and honestly it was a mix of uni work/exams and just being uninterested in beauty and fashion. However now that I am more or less free from uni stress I can now get back into blogging.

Last week I made an order from various online websites and well all of these items were skincare items, I have no idea why but I've started to gain such a strong passion for skincare now and truly now understand the saying where if your skincare is perfect your makeup will follow.

The first item that was on my long skincare wish list was the -Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Fruit & Seed Oil- I always see Kate from Ghostparties rave about this and she totally sold me as she does on almost everything. First impressions on this is that I hate the smell, but after a few times of using it I got over that and instantly fell in love with this oil. I now understand why everyone raves about this oil it just makes your skin feel so nourished and also makes your skin really glow. 

I really want to get into the whole liquid exfoliation trend that has been going on but I am actually too scared to try them in case they react badly with my skin. That is why I thought I would give the -Elemis Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Facial Wash- a go since it is a face wash with enzymes that exfoliate the face and get rid of all those dead skin cells, this face wash is also safe to use twice a day so I thought this was a safer option to try. My first impressions on this is that it made my skin feel sooo smooth and instantly saw a brighter complexion, it also didn't dry my skin out at all. 

Now here is where the bargin bit comes along with the face wash I got a full size -Elemis Soothing Apricot Toner- for free with the purchase which was amazing, the duo costed £25! which was so good considering the actual face wash itself retails at £27 something. My first impressions on the toner is like any toner really, so nice spraying it on your face and really is soothing, this is going to be great on the hotter days. 

Last of all is the spontaneous purchase, while I was ordering the other things I saw this face mask pop up and saw that they had a reduction, although their original price is quite high for a small pot of face mask I couldn't resist ordering it and seeing what the  hype is about. The -Glamglow Super Mud Clearing Treatment Mask- is raved among so many people, I have seen countless YouTube videos reviewing the masks and seeing such impressive results. My first impressions on this mask is that is lives up to its hype and it was a purchase well made, this mask also has exfoliating properties. 

I will be trying these products fully out and hopefully getting up full reviews on these products so you guys know if they are worth the money and hype. But for now next on my list is definitely a SPF, I would love to know your recommendations. 

I would also love to know what skincare items your loving at the moment, have a lovely day ^.^
