Bare Minerals Powder Foundation

After being told by HMG to switch up my foundation to a mineral powder, I searched the streets for the best mineral foundations and came across Bare Minerals. Mineral powder foundations are better options to that of liquid foundation as they don't clog up the skins pores. Don't get me wrong I still love my MAC studio fix fluid but now tend to switch between the two, opting for fix fluid for evenings out and mineral powder for everyday.

When I purchased the starter kit I was some what hesitant to work with new products, within the starter kit you get the foundation as well as a few other bonus products ( primer, bronzer/contour, setting powder and 3 Bare Minerals brushes). When I purchased the kit there was a kind make up artist who demonstrated how to use each product but it still took me a while to find out a good routine in which to apply my Bare Minerals foundation in matte medium deep, (I can also use medium dark) but I soon got the knack for it.

Overall I love the coverage it gives, but you definitely have to buff the product into the skin to get the best results. The foundation can be a little bit tricky to use but with practice makes perfect. And it just gives a healthy natural glow that works well with other products.

Would recommend to all as it has a wide range to choose from and can be bought for specific skin types.

Let me know if you have tried Bare Minerals & If you would like a detailed post on how to get this everyday mineral powder look.

Give Me Texture Instant Oomph Powder Review

So sometimes I have those days when I don’t want to do anything to my hair, just literally get up and go. But a lot of the time if I don’t spend a little time doing something to it, its left flat and dull *sad times*
So when I had discovered I could purchase a simple product to add oomph to my hair I was excited to try it. Randomly I popped into boots and purchased the VO5 volumising powder, I wanted a product I could trust and something that was worth the money hence why I chose VO5, setting me back £4.07 containing 7g of powder.

The first time I tried it, I was a little hesitant but I easily was converted and now it’s something that I use every day when I’m in a rush. All you do is dab a little of the powder in your hand (which comes out as white powder) and rub it into the roots of your hair and it disappears whilst creating body. Instant change, instant difference. It’s like magic miracle powder that takes less than a minute to do.
A little goes a long way, when using this powder it's important to shake the bottle first. The reason for doing this is that the ingredients within the powder start to activate. In simple terms, the powder expands.
If your out and about I would recommend this product to those who are pushed for time and have to head out the door within 20minutes of waking up. Don’t just take my word for it give it a go!


·                     You don't have to use a lot of the powder
·               it's completely clear/ translucent in hair
·                     The powder smells nice no chemical smell and easy to use

·               £4.00 for 7 grams- a bit pricey

Have you used this miracle product? Or is there any other products you can suggest to create body?

Yves Saint Laurent 'Elle' Limited Edition

Hey dolls, 
this is just a quick post to let you all know about one of my ultimate favorite perfumes that I discovered back in spring 2010. Which is the YSL Elle limited edition perfume, this is a different version to that of the original Elle perfume and has such a light spring scent to it.

The perfume is a mixture between floral and fruity but isn't to harsh or over powering. I searched for ages for this perfume as it was only limited edition but recently found it again and was so excited to get it. I bought Elle 90ml for around £30 which is a bargain compared to how much it was previously at around £50 (that's a guess though). I love how summery it smells and how sweet it makes you feel, as well as it lasting all day, you will get loads of compliments!

If your looking for something sweet flirty and summery than this is it!
Find it at the perfume shop

What is your summer perfume?
