Ranking Concealers For Fair Skin

I’ve taken a month break away from the blog that initially started because of the heatwave and then continued for the whole month mainly because I didn’t have time on the weekends (including a delightful trip to Manchester to see The Nico Project). The funny thing was that I had all my content planned but just couldn’t do the photos but I’ve been off for a week for my birthday and finally pulled myself together despite another London heatwave.

Now onto the actual post, I’ve always been one to have a couple of concealers but within the last couple of months, I went on a bit of a concealer craze trying to find my favourite one. I have quite sunken under eyes and on top of that a very translucent skin that picks up on any veins under there so I’ve slowly come to a conclusion that no concealer will fully counteract that and it’s very much about finding the one that will do the most and look the most flattering. I don’t particularly use concealer in other areas of my face at the moment but most of these will work for that purpose as well. For reference, my best foundation shade match is Smashbox Studio Skin in 0.1. Continue reading “Ranking Concealers For Fair Skin”

Favourite Eye Makeup Brushes

Following up on my favourite face makeup brushes post post my makeup brush buying obsession earlier this year, today I’m finally talking all my favourite eye brushes. Glancing at all of these brushes definitely makes it clear that I had a bit of a moment with Rae Morris and pencil brushes but eye makeup is my favourite part of makeup and apparently I couldn’t even keep this under 10 but decided to include some alternatives that could be utilised if your makeup preferences were different to mine.

Fair Skin Test: Uoma Beauty White Pearl Foundation

Uoma Beauty recently launched its line bringing another vast range of foundation shades and a poor range of concealer shades (the lightest concealer is about five tones darker than its matching foundation – pretty Fenty shade range in reverse). The reason why I went for this foundation is because unlike Fenty, it didn’t pretty much dry on contact with the skin and I think more than anything, it’s exciting if you can find a foundation shade that matches you and this seemed to have a good variety ranging from fairest to deepest.

Monochrome Cool Brown Makeup Look

Today’s post is mostly inspired by the latest addition to my lipstick wardrobe in the form of the new Chanel Matte Lip Crayon in Hazelnut and while I might have originally been drawn to it because well, I love hazelnuts, it quickly became the cool nude I always looked for and could never find.

Thoughts on the Hyped Up Makeup in My Collection

Now, I do like to kid myself into thinking I’m completely immune to marketing but what is better marketing than hyping up a product within the online beauty community. This list was interesting to put together because why I definitely research products before buying them, I have on occasions bought something only because I heard someone mention it multiple times even if I knew I probably won’t get that much use out of it. There is also a few brands that I generally consider to be hyped up and they definitely made up a bulk of this list. Continue reading “Thoughts on the Hyped Up Makeup in My Collection”
