The Wedding Update #1

Quiet a lot has happened since I last did a wedding related post! We still have just over a year to go but I'm keen to get as much sorted as soon as possible. I mentioned in my last wedding post that the venue has been booked, finally after 6 months of hunting for the perfect place! I'm feeling quite private about it at the minute, I shared a couple of sneak peaks on my Instagram story and the picture above is part of the venue, but I won't be doing a full venue reveal until after the day!

THE DRESS

I can see myself having a bit of a ramble here, basically my first experience of trying on wedding dresses really wasn't how I imagined it. I decided to stay local and I didn't go to an amazing shop, I knew that it wasn't the nicest place to try on dresses for the first time, but I was so nervous about it that I just didn't want to go far and make a big fuss. I'm sure I can't be the only bride to be with this feeling, but I'm just so worried that I won't find a dress that I feel amazing in!

Basically the whole thing was rushed, the lady 'helping' didn't seem interested and I didn't feel amazing like I expected to! I'll definitely be trying on some more dresses on soon, I have a couple of designers in mind who I love which should hopefully make it easier.

THE INVITATIONS/ STATIONARY

As much as I love the idea of fancy invitations I've actually let my partner decide on this and we are going for email invites and a wedding website. I'm still going to have stationary on the day in a beautiful calligraphy font as I imagined for the invitations, but we decided that spending £600- £700 on the dream invitations just wasn't worth it, and we would much rather invest in the venue. Some of the websites we have seen are beautiful and definitely set the scene for the day, hopefully in a similar way an invitation would.

THE FOOD 

We didn't really fancy the idea of having a formal 3 course meal, we wanted something more relaxed and have gone for a tapas style menu. There will still be 3 courses but it not only gives our guests a little more option but creates a more informal atmosphere for sure. One thing I'm definitely looking forward to is our food tasting session, halloumi skewers are currently on the cards!

If you have any wedding dress experiences similar to mine, then please put my mind at ease and let me know!

The Contour Edit: Save, Spend or Splurge?



Contouring has been around for a while now but it's something I'm only just getting the hang of. It was only the other day I realised just how many contouring palettes/ products I have, ranging from £3.99 right up to £35, and there is a definite favourite!

SAVE

Collection Contour Stick - LIGHT £3.99

I picked this up after seeing Fleur De Force rave about it, it's the most affordable in my collection and one of my favourites! I love this particularly for contouring my nose, I don't do anything too heavy but the bullet is small making it really easy to be precise. The shade of this is also spot on, it's a cool toned pale brown with almost a hint of purple to it which works well to give the look of a natural shadow. The formulation is also a winner for me, it isn't too creamy so it stays put on my oily skin throughout the day. If you are new to contouring or want to try something a little different to a powder I really recommend this!

Barry M Chisel Cheeks Contour - LIGHT £6.49

I think this was the first contouring product I picked up a fair few years ago now (probably needs to be chucked in all honesty...). This isn't my go to option anymore, the powder which is meant for sculpting is far too dark for my complexion so it just doesn't work. Having said that I do like the bronzer in this and the powders are soft and blend well. One to avoid if you have a pale complexsion but worth looking into if you want your contour and bronzer in one place and have a darker complexsion.

SPEND 

Sleek Contour kit - LIGHT £6.99

Like the Barry M kit this is another old product which doesn't see much love anymore. I don't think much of the highlighter, but I do like the contouring shade for bronzer. Being so pale I don't tend to go for really warm bronzers as they just look orange on my skin, the shade in this palette is a fab neutral/ slightly cool toned brown which just seems to work better as a bronzer for me.

Maybelline Master Sculpt Contouring - LIGHT MEDIUM £6.99

This is a more recent addition to my collection which I definitely didn't need... However, out of all the contour and highlighting kits mentioned this is my favourite. The formulation of the powders reminds me of highend products, it blends so well and lasts on my skin. The only issue I have with this is the shade, it's a great matte brown but it just isn't quite cool toned enough to really give the illusion of naturally contoured cheeks, like some of the other products. I think this may work better for me in the summer when I'm not so pale.

Rimmel London Sculpting Palette* - 002 CORAL GLOW £6.99

I've had this for couple of months now and I tend to reach for it when I'm in a rush because it's so easy to use. I like all of the shades, but like the majority of the kits mentioned above I don't necessarily use the contouring shade for contouring, more of an all over complexsion boost. The powders are soft and tend to last well on my skin throughout the day, so it is a nice addition to my makeup collection, and doesn't break the bank!

SPLURGE

Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Contour £19

I loved this at first but after trying so many other contouring products I've realised it's pretty much a waste of money! I use it to bronze my complexsion from time to time but I find that it blends out so much that there is almost no point in applying it in the first place. To me contouring is supposed to be precise, and having it in chubby stick form makes that impossible. For a night out I will sometimes layer this and apply a powder bronzer on top and I definitely notice that my bronzer lasts longer, but considering it's supposed to be for contouring and it set me back £19, it's really not worth it!

The Sculpting Powder Kevyn Aucoin - LIGHT £35

Lastly is the product that really spurred me on to write this post, out of all contouring bits and bobs mentioned this is my absolute favourite. There are so many things that makes this contouring powder better than the others mentioned. Firstly the packaging is gorgeous, it comes with it's own little velvet pouch! It's the shade and formulation of this that make it worth the splurge, it's the only product I've found that can actually recedes areas of my face in a natural looking way. The powder is so soft and pigmented I only need a tiny amount and it blends beautifully too. The price tag put my off buying this for years, but nothing more affordable compares for me!

THE VERDICT

If you are on a budget, I don't think contouring is something you need invest in for your makeup routine. However, the Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder is my favourite without a doubt! It really does manage to fake the appearance of cheek bones and shadows like no other powder I've tried. From one extreme to the other, the Collection Precision Contouring pencil is an absolute steal and a fab way to test a really cool toned contour and whether it will work for you.

Rimmel Brow Shake Filling Powder Review



For me brows make or break a look, the whole 'Instagram Brow' isn't for my thing and I try to achieve a full, but natural looking brow instead... I was lucky enough to be sent the brand new Rimmel Brow Shake Filling Powder* £5.99, lots of brands seem to be coming out with brow palettes, pomades and taming gels, but this is pretty unique!

THE APPLICATOR/ PRODUCT
I'm really impressed with the powder in the product. My brows stayed put all day without any budging or fading which was perfect. It's also nicely pigmented and soft helping it blend well when combing my brows through after using it - i've found using a spoolie works wonders with this as it distributes the powder evenly.

The applicator is what makes this unique, it's a soft sponge which holds the powder. As you can see the applicator is quite thick which makes filling in the brows a quick process, but that does mean less precision and the inability to create soft hair like strokes, so this is definitely for those that like a bold brow, or perfect for more dramatic evening looks. This has been marketed as a 3-in-1 product that will fill, define and line, and I definitely agree.

I think with a little practise this does become easy to use, it's a very quick way to fill the brow with colour!
(L-R Light Brown, Medium Brown, Dark Brown, Black)
SHADE RANGE
There are only 4 shades to choose from in this range, which isn't really enough. At first glance I thought that medium brown would be a good match for me, but actually on the brows it looked more like a dark brown. In the end my shade of choice was the lightest in the range which is light brown, however I feel like this will be far too dark for anyone with lighter brows. 

The dark brown as you can see from the swatch is incredibly warm toned, which is something to bare in mind when deciding which shade to go for. One thing I do like about the shades they have in the range is the consideration of different tones, it's good to see more affordable brands bringing out a mix of both cool and warm toned shades. Buying this instore I think swatching it/ actually trying it out will be your best bet to finding the perfect shade. 
I think this is a product I'll use more for evening makeup, or in conjunction with a brow pencil to create a more natural looking finish for day time. I'm impressed with the concept but if you prefer very natural looking brows, this isn't for you.

What are your favourite brow products to use, will you be trying the Brow Shake?

Why I Love Bio Sculpture Gel


Rewind to two weeks ago, my nails were short, brittle and unable to grow without thinning and snapping - then I decided to try Bio Sculpture, and now I'm hooked.

I'm one of those unlucky people with incredibly weak nails, one look at my nail and it would snap. Working at a computer all day I constantly see my hands and I was so fed up with my nails looking short, and having to paint them 3 times a week for them to look semi presentable. I've tried Shellac but had no luck with it, it often chipped within the first week and it made my nails weak from it peeling off, it just wasn't durable enough.

When I heard about Bio Sculpture I knew that it would be the treatment for me, it's similar to Shellac offering a glossy looking colour to the natural nail, but the difference is the product as it's a gel rather than just a polish. The pictures above were taken just a day after getting the treatment so my nails were pretty short, two and a half weeks in and the polish is still intact and my nails are much longer - with no breakage! I was actually recommended this treatment by Chloe who has just started a blog here! Her nails lasted over 3 weeks and they still looked amazing towards the end of of the treatment!

As you can probably tell, I'm seriously impressed with Bio Sculpture! The treatment took less than 30 minutes, it's made my nails grow longer than ever before and it can guarantee me nice nails for 2-4 weeks. However there is one downside for me and that's the price. This treatment is £24, which isn't a lot but going from spending nothing on my nails each month to that is quite a big jump, although it's a price I'm still going to pay once a month, as I really do think it's worth it. I don't think I'll ever go back to Shellac or nail extensions again after this, I'm actually looking into becoming a Bio Sculpture nail technician to fill my time on the evenings and weekends I think it's that good!

Affordable Skincare That Works


There is nothing I love more than a good beauty bargain! All of these products are under the £20 mark and I use them on a weekly if not daily basis. Just for reference I have combination skin and I think most of these products will work for every skin type.

CLEANSE

I love using a Micellar water to remove the majority of my base and eye makeup before I properly cleanse, it makes makeup removal so much easier! I always reach for the Garnier Micellar Water £4.99 and stock up when it's on offer. It's gentle, removes my makeup quickly and makes cleansing 10x easier. For heavy/ full coverage makeup the Super Facialist by Una Brennan Facial Oil* £14.99 is a godsend! This literally melts my makeup in seconds and I haven't found it to be too heavy for my oily skin or clog my pores at all.

With my skin feeling a little dehydrated I have switched back to a cream based cleanser and my go to has been the Una Brennan Creamy Cleanser* £7.99. This is the closest dupe I've found for the infamous Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish (which I love). It is hydrating and works perfectly with my Magnitone as a second cleanse, and I think I'll be repurchasing this over the Cleanse and Polish!

MASKS

I have quite a few affordable face masks in my collection, and with the colder weather I have been reaching for the Una Brennan Rose Intense Moisture Mask* £9.99 most. I love how much of a difference I notice when I use this, it leaves my skin feeling soft, nourished and diminishes the appearance of fine dehydration lines. If I'm looking to add some glow to my skin I'll use the Nip and Fab Glycolic Instant Fix Mask £12.99. This contains 5% Glycolic acid and leaves my skin looking radiant, refined and it feels much softer too. I love the effects of Glycolic acid, using this twice a week keeps my skin clear and the gentle exfoliation helps any other products I use sink into my skin making them more effective.

TREAT

I couldn't do this post without mentioning La Roche Posay, I can't rave about this brand enough if you have acne/ blemish prone skin. One of my absolute favourite products is the Effaclar K £14.90, this is powerful enough to treat breakouts effectively without being too drying or leaving my skin feeling dry/ dehydrated.

Cult Beauty Haul / First Impressions


I managed to get 15% off on Cult Beauty, so of-course I had to do a little damage. I decided to pick up a few luxuries I have needed for a while...

Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder Light £35

I've never been able to master the whole contour/ sculpting trend, but my hamster like cheeks could do with a little help. I've heard everyone go on about this powder but of-course, before now, the £35 price mark put me off. When I first saw this I couldn't believe how light and cool toned the powder was, but luckily this really is an amazing sculpted face, in a teeny tiny pan! The powder is the softest pressed face powder I have ever tried, I use a really small amount on a fluffy contouring brush and it's enough to give my cheeks more definition. Packaging wise this also ticks all the boxes, it comes in a lovely velvet pouch and the packaging is so sleek and screams highend - as you would expect for the price!

The Beauty Blender £16

I've probably tried around 5 different sponge applicators for my makeup, and nothing works quite like the Beauty Blender! This is a repurchase so I know that it's a winner in my makeup collection. lthough it is £16 for a sponge, it's something that I use as part of my everyday routine which is my justification! I love using this in dabbing motions to blend my under eye concealer and I also go over my foundation to just ensure there are no streaks or patches. It's a must have for every makeup wearer!

Davines Alchemic Conditioner - Silver Grey £19.20

Kate La Vie mentioned this in a Cult Beauty haul she did before Christmas and it's been in my mind ever since. I have ombre/balayage hair and although my hairdresser does apply an ashy/ cool toned toner my hair just can't help but turn warm and more of a yellow toned blonde! I've used this once and I'm really happy with it, unlike most silver shampoo this doesn't leave my hair feeling stripped of moisture. I think this will be really effective at maintaining a cool toned blonde, but I'll keep you updated!

Holy Grail Drugstore Makeup Products



You know that feeling you get when you find an amazing high street beauty product and it costs less than your weekly caffeine fund? Sometimes the high street beauty brands just get it right and do an even better job than products which are triple the price! Here are my current holy grail drugstore makeup products that I just can't do my makeup without...

NYX Micro Brow Pencil £7

When I want to achieve a natural brow look this is the product I reach for. I have the shade 'taupe' and it works perfectly allowing me to add really natural looking hair like strokes to my brows, leaving them darker and more defined without being too over the top. The formulation of this product is perfect and the tiny nib makes filling in brows easy. My only gripe is that this usually lasts around a month and a half, so I've already repurchased this around 7 times!

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer £5.99

I picked this up because Feel Unique had 34% off (which they still do) and I wanted to see what all the hype was about. This really is a dupe for the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer - if. not. better! It sits on my skin well and is so incredibly pigmented it covers up every blemish and late night easily. I love using this with a beauty blender for a flawless yet non cakey looking finish. The reason I prefer this slightly over the Nars concealer is because it isn't as drying and doesn't crease at all under the eyes. A must try for every skin type I think!

Rimmel Only 1 Matte lipsticks* £6.99

I remember how excited I was when Rimmel kindly sent me the whole range of their new lipsticks, and that was before I had tried them! You'll probably already know the drill with these but the formulation, pigmentation and staying power is just incredible and they have become an everyday go to for me. I have wrote a post including my favourites and lip swatches if you want to see the specifics.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams £5.50

These are as close as I'll go to wearing a liquid lipstick. I've tried so many different liquid lipstick formulations and I've just come to the conclusion that they don't work for me. However, I really don't feel like I'm missing out having these in my collection. They dry down to a beautiful matte finish without being at all drying or showing up every crack in my lips and every shade I've tried lasts a good 6-7 hours before needing a touch up! I'm so impressed with the formulation of these and I now have over 10 in my collection... Whoops! 

L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara  £10.99

This is one of those products I regret not trying sooner. I love L'Oreal mascara's in general but most leave my lashes looking too clumpy and over done for everyday, but this mascara manages to add length and subtle volume. My lashes look the same when I come to take my makeup off in the evening as they did when I left the house in the morning. I love using this in conjunction with a more volumising mascara when I want a more dramatic look. I've never had any issues with smudging throughout the day and a tube lasts me a good 3 months even using it every day.

Crown Pure Exposed Eyeshadow Palette* £19.99

A more recent addition to my collection is this beautiful palette from Crown, yes it is another dupe for a certain palette from a certain highend brand... However, I was pleasantly surprised when I tried this for the first time, the shadows are nicely pigmented, long lasting and fall out was minimal. I'll be honest, formulation wise it isn't quite as spectacular as Urban Decay in my opinion, although for half the price it has definitely filled a gap in my collection and I'm not too fussed about picking up the Naked 2 anymore. The shade selection makes this palette perfect for day time and evening makeup and I've really enjoyed using it over the past month.

The Bronzed/ Golden Eyeshadow Edit


When an occasion comes around where I get the chance to play with makeup, I always opt for a bronzed, warm toned eyeshadow. I find it the most flattering shade for my blue eyes and it pairs well with every makeup look possible. I have accumulated a fair few single eyeshadows that fall under the bronzed category - and yes I definitely need them all, if not more! 

I'll start with the most affordable, the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in - you guessed it 'On and On Bronze' £4.99. This is such a beautiful cream eyeshadow, except a little more stiff in texture which helps it stay put ALL DAY! This is incredibly pigmented, long lasting and as the name suggests a gorgeous true bronze shade. Also a summer holiday essential for me as it works nicely as a base for eyeshadows or buffed out and worn on it's own - can you tell I'm obsessed!? Another bronzed cream eyeshadow in my collection is 'Bette' from Charlotte Tilbury's Eyes to Mesmerise range £22, this has more of a mousse like texture so isn't quite as long lasting, but the pigmentation and bronzed sheen it leaves on the lids is just perfect for everyday wear! 

The Sephora Eyeshadow in Hollywoods Calling $5 is a shade I forget about all too often, but every time I use it I remember just why I love it so much! It's a gorgeous high shimmer/ glittery true bronze shade, used wet this gives a metallic effect perfect for special occasions. Another favourite is MAC's Amber Lights £13. This is a gorgeous warm toned bronze/ orange shade, the pigmentation is amazing and with the orange undertones it compliments blue eyes perfectly. Both of these are definitely shades I reach for on special occasions.

Lastly is Makeup Geek Magic Act £9.25, which clearly isn't a bronzed eyeshadow, but, it does pair beautifully with all of the shades above, and if I want the same effect as a bronzed eyeshadow but on muted I always opt for this. The Makeup Geek eyeshadows are seriously impressive, I'm on a mission to fill a Z Palette this year.

Pretty much all of the shadows I try which have a warm/ bronzed look to them always seem to be pigmented, an amazing formulation and generally the best quality out of all the shades in a collection! Maybe they're easy for brands to get right, I'm definitely not complaining as they are my go to shades...

1) Maybelline On and On Bronze 2) CT Bette 3) MUG Magic Act 4) MAC Amber Lights 5) Sephora Hollywoods Calling

Pink Valentines Makeup Picks



All of a sudden I've become obsessed with pretty much anything pink, and with Valentines coming up I thought this would be a fitting time to share my favourite pink products. 

Although it's only pink packaging, I wanted to give the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara £7.99 a mention. I went back to using this at the beginning of January and now I'm reaching for it pretty much everyday. It manages to add length and volume to my lashes without being clumpy, so my lashes don't look too fake or dramatic which is the look I want to go for this Valentines and for date nights in general. I highly recommend it if you haven't given into all the hype with this already.

MAC All That Glitters Eyeshadow £13 was my first MAC eyeshadow purchase, and it's still a shade I reach for when I just want an easy to wear wash of colour. It's pigmented, soft and really compliments my blue eyes without being over the top. It's just perfect for when I want to wear just a little more than mascara and not look too done up.

Although I'm currently having a love affair with Bio Sculpture nails (there will be a post coming on this soon), The Barry M Gelly High Shine Nail Paint in Pink Lemonade £3.99 is my holy grail nail polish. Whenever I wear this shade I instantly feel more put together, and it just goes so well with everything. I also love the formulation of Barry M Gelly polishes, they last much longer on the nails than other polishes I've tried and only need two coats for an opaque finish.

I'm not a massive fan of a bold pink lip, so the Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Descanso £20 is about as pink as I'll go. Annoyingly I didn't realise before writing this that it's actually limited edition, although I think it will be released again in another Nars holiday collection. The formulation of the Satin lip pencils in general is fab, they're creamy, pigmented and really comfortable to wear. Descanso is the perfect pink/ coral shade and it ties in nicely with All That Glitters eyeshadow. I couldn't think of anything worse than a bold matte lipstick around Valentines, so I'm definitely opting for this...

Microdermabrasion at Home: PMD Personal Microderm Review*



Microdermabrasion is something I have wanted to have done for years, I always thought it was a salon only treatment and it was just something I never got round to getting done! When I was contacted to try out the PMD Personal Microderm device I was so excited, I knew it would be perfect for my oily, blemish prone skin! Plus, finally a way to try out microdermabrasion without leaving the house!

What is the PMD Personal Microderm and Microdermabrasion?

The PMD Personal Microderm is the purple and white gadget pictured above, it replicates the tools used in spas and salons offering Microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is basically a treatment that removes a layer of the skin which in turn improves many common skin issues such as light scaring, clogged pores and acne.

How it works

The PMD Beauty website and information that comes with the PMD does an amazing job at explaining everything in detail, literally every question I had about using this I could find the answer easily. The PMD has a vacuum suction (definitely not as scary as it sounds), which brings the skin and the exfoliating disk in contact. Moving across the face the disk removes a layer of the skin, there are different disks which means both a light or more powerful exfoliation can be achieved. I have been using this once a week for 8 weeks, and of-course I've been using an SPF alongside it.

My results

Week 1

As advised I started with the least exfoliating disk first. I actually used the Magnitone before using this which I love, but I stopped using that to start using the PMD. Honestly I have quite tough skin, not sensitive in the slightest. I noticed that using the disk for ultra-sensitive skin didn't really do much for me, although I think it's amazing to have as part of the kit to build the skin up for more intense exfoliation.

Week 2

I decided to move onto using the blue disk which is still for sensitive skin but has just a little more power. I definitely noticed a difference using this, my skin felt much soft and the products I used the same evening seemed to work much better.

Week 3

Again, I used the blue disk in week 3. I had pretty much the same results as week 2. Although, this was around Christmas and my skin didn't take too kindly to all of the chocolate and lack of veg I was having. One thing that is kind of irritating is that this cannot be used over blemishes. I feel like a lot of people wanting this kind of treatment may have acne or active spots, I know that I do around my chin area so this wasn't too useful for clearing that up.

Week 4 and 5

After seeing some results but nothing spectacular after the first 4 weeks I decided to move onto using the green disk. The green disk was probably the game changer for me, products absorbed into my skin much easier and my skin had such a radiant glow the next morning. In terms of blackheads, enlarged pores and blemishes which are main skin concerns there still wasn't much difference. However my skin definetly did look clear and felt soft.

Week 6, 7 and 8

I remember having pretty good skin weeks during this time. This device definitely improved the appearance of blemish scaring on my skin, and my skin has been feeling much more hydrated than usual which is one of the main reasons I love this product as everything I use afterwards seems to work 10x better.

I decided not to go any more intense than the medium green disk, as I do wonder how abrasive the red disk is and whether it should be something used at home instead of by a professional. Going to a professional to have Microdermabrasion treatment is so expensive, and although I can't do a direct comparison I feel like this device does a similar job. This retails at £135, so certainly a skincare investment but it's definitely going to be something I continue to use whenever I feel like my skin needs a more intensive exfoliation. Harrods actually stocks PMD which put me at ease, I think that says a lot about the brand!

February Goals

I've decided to carry on this little series I started last September as they seem to go down well, and I just love setting goals! Heres a few things I hope to achieve/ get done this month

1) Go on more walks

I live in North Wales and I don't feel like I take full advantage of my surroundings, it's actually beautiful! Every time my partner comes home we say that we will do a walk and we just never get round to it, so this month I'm making sure we visit a couple of new places and go on some long walks.

2) Figure out a blogging schedule

I feel like the next big thing for me to do in order to up my blogging game is have a schedule - and stick to it. I know a couple of bloggers that work full time and manage to post every single day, they're flippin super women! For now I'm thinking a Wednesday, Friday and Sunday would be perfect upload days for me.

3) Have another clear out and sell more

This month I managed to make an extra £150 through selling things I don't use/ want anymore. I've always been good with my money, and I actually quite enjoy the whole process of being able to give my unwanted bits and bobs to a better home! At the minute I'm having to save more than half of my wage to pay for the wedding, but like most I really love treating myself atleast once a month. By selling things either on Depop or eBay, I can save and splurge at the same time! It's a win win.

This month I have quite a few things to look forward to - I'm trying on wedding dresses for the first time, going to see Drake - my absolute guilty pleasure! And my partner is coming home twice, no more lonely weekends! Also, thank you to everyone who took the time to leave a comment on my latest post, I'm so glad so many of you could relate!

Do you have any goals for February?
