MY SUMMER EVERYDAY MAKE-UP ROUTINE.

I have something amazing to share with you and I think you are all going to love it. I have been getting messages recently from a few of you asking for a make-up routine, more specifically the make-up routine that I am using on a daily basis.

I have decided to create a video, primarily to complement the process so you can see a step-by-step guide of what I am doing. I have also included the Q&A polls from my Instagram and Twitter, so if you asked a question then it will be answered in the video. In addition, I have added in some FUN FACTS, along with a little chat. All of the products I have used can be found in the video itself, plus I will tag them below and they will also be tagged in the description box of the video too.

What products have I used? 

  1. Moisturiser
  2. Foundation
  3. Contour set
  4. Eye-brow kit
  5. Setting Spray
  6. Face Mist
  7. Mascara

This is a very easy, simple, and fresh make-up look which I wear a majority of the time. I am not the best at make-up, so this works wonders for me. I prefer having my make-up quite subtle, and this feels amazing on the skin as it isn’t too heavy. This is definitely a look that I will be wearing for many times to come or a look that I will use as a basis for all looks.

Check out the video and let me know what you think in the comments:

The Body Shop VIP Exclusive Evening Haul || Winchester Store

I’ve been needing an evening like this for a very long time…

As a regular customer at The Body Shop, I was kindly invited to an exclusive VIP evening to try products, ask for advice from the experts or book an appointment for a skincare and/or make-up consultation. Recently, I have been meaning to treat myself to a luxury moisturiser and body lotion. My skin has been feeling dull and dry, so I am rather pleased with the outcome of this evening. Tonight was my opportunity to book myself in for a skincare consultation to find out what skin type I have, in terms of sensitivity, dryness or oiled.

The staff were welcoming and approachable from the set go by introducing themselves personally and informing me of their new screen that prints off a name sticker. I thought this was such a great idea for when you were spoken to as you were mentioned by your name which made the overall experience a lot more personal. I was very impressed with the layout of the store as it is was clean/tidy, easy to navigate and everything looked beautiful in its place.

 

 

Fortunately for me, I was able to get a 1-to-1 consultation with their skincare expert to discuss with me the types of products I should be using on my skin to improve my moisture and hydration. I was very impressed with the consultation as I was able to talk about what products I already use, which ones I should change to and also try them on my skin so I can try them before I buy them. I really liked how knowledgeable the expert was as she was able to answer all my questions and inform me about my health and skincare as well as the products. The three products that I tried and stood out most to me where: The Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil, The Vitamin E Gentle Facial Wash and The Vitamin E Hydrating Toner. I was advised to use The Camomile Silky Cleansing oil to wash my makeup off with followed by The Gentle Facial Wash which leaves the skin feeling clean, soft and refreshed. After I have applied those two, I should then apply The Hydrating Toner which removes unwanted oils and leftover makeup leaving the skin feeling fresh and hydrated for up to 24 hours.

 

 

The next two purchases I decided to get was The Almond Milk & Honey Bath Milk which is something I’ve been looking at for a while now. It is a soothing smooth liquid based body wash that ‘gently cleanses, soothes and reduces the sensation of tight, itchy dry skin’. This just sounds like something I will enjoy very much. I like how the bottle looks like a milk carton and I find it very cute. I’m looking forward to trying this very soon. Along with this, I purchased The Almon Milk & Honey Body Lotion to complement the bath milk as it’s the same scent that soothes itchy dry skin. I love the smell of these two and I think it’s amazing how the moisture lasts for 48 hours… like that’s incredible! I have never tried bath milk or body lotion from The Body Shop before, so I am very excited to try these for the first time.

 

 

Just when you thought I was done with my purchases, I am about to sneak another one in there. I decided to buy myself one of their pre-made gift sets which included The White Musk Shower Gel and The White Musk Fragrance Mist. It was pretty obvious that I had only purchased specific products for my face and for my body, so I am pleased with myself for getting a perfume as well. I have been talking to Kevin for the past few days now saying that I needed to get a new perfume and conveniently enough I remembered I needed one and got my favourite one from The Body Shop. The reason why I got the matching shower gel was that they came in a set which was £10 for both products and the perfume alone is £8.50, so it made sense to do that. Luckily for me, as I am a regular customer I had a £5.00 off voucher that I was able to use, so I got this beautiful set for just £5.00.

Now it’s time for my favourite part of the whole evening which was receiving FREE gifts. I’m totally kidding!!!! The whole evening was just amazing and so thoughtfully planned out. I always love getting freebies, especially from a brand that I speak highly of as it just shows that they respect and value their customers by showing a little appreciation of their loyalty. Here is what I received:

 

 

FREE = £25.50 (FULL PRICE = £63.00 with a discount of 30% applied and 3 for 2 deal applied = £39.45)

 

 

Overall, I am very pleased with all my purchases and free gifts I received this evening it worked out that individually the total sum was £88.50 and I paid an incredible price of £39.45. I would like to say a big mention to the store manager, Emma, who was exceptional. Thank you so much to The Body Shop for inviting me to their exclusive VIP evening. It’s been OUTSTANDING!

Don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled and stay active on social media. I will be posting a follow-up post within the next week about trying all these brand new products.

My Spring Everyday Make-Up Routine.

 

YouTube Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rIrvgpwUD0E

WOW! I actually can’t believe I am doing one of these posts. It is something that I have wanted to share with you for some time now. It has been a highly requested blog post idea for a while now and I had no idea how to share it with you. I was very nervous to film my everyday make-up routine on my own as I was not used to it. I used to make YouTube with my best friend for 4 years, so this was a big jump. I thoroughly enjoyed filming this video, even if I did cut loads out LOL! For some reason on camera, it took me so long to do and I forgot how to do my make-up… oops! I really hope you enjoy the video and found it useful to see the products I use and I use them.

This is my go-to everyday make-up routine. It is very easy to do and roughly takes about 10-15 minutes to complete the finish look. This is definitely the look I go for on a daily basis and you can probably see this on my Instagram and Twitter posts. I absolutely love this look because I can wear it literally every day by changing the colour of the lipstick to suit the weather and my clothing. Today, I was wearing spring colours which is why I went for a light pink/nude shade which enhanced the colour of my natural lips anyway. I think this is a super easy make-up tutorial that doesn’t require too many techniques and still looks natural and pretty.
