Hello my lovelies, Welcome back to my blog and thank you for taking the time today to read my post it really means a lot to me.
Today I wanted to show a makeup look that I just made up whilst trying out some new and old makeup that I had sitting around. The main reason I am posting this look is to discuss my concealer tips which I am excited to share with you all with Into The Gloss, a site dedicated to beauty. Into The Gloss has covered concealers a lot lately and want to know the tips and tricks women have to picking out the colour of a concealer and the tricks to applying it. Here is a link to their blog with the best concealers: https://intothegloss.com/2016/01/best-concealer-pot/
So lets begin…….
So here is my face before I apply my makeup, My skin is a combination of oily and dry as well as spot prone skin. I always moisturise my skin day and night. I do have a lot of redness and blemishes across my face as well as dark circles under my eyes.
If I haven’t already I apply cream to my face. At this moment in time I do not have any Primer so I apply my foundation straight away.
I apply my foundation all across my face and blend out with a damp beauty blender. The foundation I used was dream satin Liquid by maybeline in Light Porcelain. This is not a full coverage foundation but is a great base as it reduces my redness and covers most my blemishes.
Now with concealer I do not use it to highlight under my eyes like most people on Youtube do. I buy concealer which is the same shade as my skin tone, this allows me to apply the product to the blemishes on my face, and the dark/red areas. The concealer I used was Urban Decay Naked skin in the lightest shade.
I apply it under my eyes to hide my dark circles, then down my nose for a few blemishes, around my nostrils as I get quite dark skin in this area, I applied it to my forehead as I also get blemishes here (Do you see a trend forming). And then finally I apply it to my chin, every month my chin breaks out in spots, usually large ones that become nothing, therefore I apply concealer to help it blend into my skin tone.
When it comes to concealer I learnt a little goes a long way, I always apply and blend with a beauty blender so that it sits on my problem areas. DO NOT use a brush I found this can make the concealer stick to dry skin and it will cause brush strokes to show on your face….Remember you can always build on the concealer, so apply a small amount first and DAB it onto your skin, and you can always add more if needed. Here is the concealer blended …..
My skin looks a little brighter, but I have covered the Blemishes on my chin which you could see earlier from my first photo. However now I look extremely pale, I cannot wait for summer to come so I can get this skin to warm up a little.
Now to set the work we just did…
I have used my new Airspun Translucent powder today which I LOVE by the way! So I have not used the technique Baking yet so thought I would give it a try, so I applied the powder using the applicator included under my eyes, chin and forehead and left it there for a couple mins.
While my skin was baking, I added my contour. The product I used was by Smashbox. I applied this under my cheek bone using a contour brush by Real techniques, across my temples, forehead and along my jaw line.
Once I was happy with that I buffed out the powder we used for Baking… and then applied blush. I used the Milani baked blush.
Next I wanted to brighten my eyes up so I decided to use a couple shades of green from my MUA palette and a little cream eye shadow from my smokey palette by Smashbox. And then applied a wing eyeliner by Loreal, and topped the lashes off with a coat of mascara by Miss Sporty.
Here is the completed look plus a little lipstick by Estee Lauder…..
The products I used for this look are..

No longer fighting the urge to enter the depth of his dark and mysterious lifestyle, she indulges in his most intimate desires. They become the most exciting, wild, infatuated couple everybody knows.
Until his confession changes everything… Her heart is telling her to stay. Her instinct is telling her to run.
She can never match his outrageous ex-wife and become the fun, fearless woman he craves… Or can she?

WHAT EVERYONE IS SAYING ABOUT HIS CONFESSION:
His Confession was a surprisingly engaging read with believable characters who were easy to connect with.It dealt with subjects a little different to what I’m used to, but the author did a great job of pulling me into her world.” – Mia Hoddell, YA/NA author.
”His Confession pulled me through from the first paragraph! The enigmatic Darion practically leapt off the pages and I could picture his every move and facial expression clear as day in my head! This story is definitely one to add to your “want-to-read” list-especially if you love a captivating plot as well as scenes so hot that they fog up your glasses. I don’t want to say too much and spoil it for future readers but DARION and GABI put Christian and Ana to SHAME! Enough said. LOL.” – Kiarra M. Taylor, contemporary romance author of THE QUARTER CHANGE.
”I loved it and I’m excited to read more to find out what happens. Darion is a great guy who was hurt badly and doesn’t know how to handle, which in steps Gabi. Love love love her! Hopefully she fights for him! When does the next book come out, as I’m dying to know what comes next! I also hope the girls get their own stories.” – Susan Flynn, Beta reader Writers club.
”S. Valentine does an exquisite job at creating a dynamic between two characters, both from different worlds, that goes beyond a physical attraction.
His Confession is book one in The Black Door Trilogy. It is a fast paced story that is full of hotness and anticipation that heats you up from your head to your toes. Gabi, is tired of always playing it safe. Darion, has demons that he can no longer control.
When these two get together, boundaries are pushed, control is tested and emotions run wild.” – AV. Scott, author of High Heels & New York.
A brilliant book which leaves you wondering what happened in Darion’s past that has left him so wary and so afraid to put himself and his heart out there not to mention to put his faith and trust in Gabi, the one woman whose managed to penetrate the walls he’s built.
I can’t wait for book 2 and I’m hoping that Darion and Gabi can overcome the obstacles that stand in front of them, including Eva, Darion’s ex wife.” – Rebecca Barber, author Nobody’s Obligation.
I started this book with really high expectations, other book bloggers recommended me this story a while ago, after seeing it on the best sellers list and all over Twitter I thought I would give it a go. The reviews for the book were great a lot of people said it was an emotional book for them to read and a fantastic point of view however, I was very disappointed!
The idea behind this book was fantastic: a young girl using letters which she writes to famous dead celebs and popular figures throughout the years, to express her feelings over the recent death of her sister, whilst reminiscing about the celebs because she shared the memories with her sister. I was expecting a little drama, and something different, I don’t know why but this book didn’t live up to my expectations, and was not what I expected.
From what I read Laurel is a young girl about 13 maybe, her sister May passed away, not only was she her sister but I got the impression that May was Laurels mentor, she would always know the trends, fashion, friends that would be the best. May was the cool sister who was known by many people and was loved dearly. I think the reason Laurel talks to the dead more is because she feels that they are closer to May and that perhaps they understand her more, especially as she relates to their films, music and lifestyles when she writes her letters.
From my point of view, I found this book a real struggle to read, it was way too young for me, and boring… Normally I’m hooked on books like this but I kept putting this one down. After a month of trying to read it I only got to read 100 pages and decided I didnt want to read it anymore. I feel this book is for young readers, I wouldn’t class it for young adults really, it’s not like other young adult books I have read, it felt very immature.
The storyline sounded great and the idea of the book being all letters was great, but the actually story did not make me upset or sad and I didn’t feel that the character missed her sister at all. I read two other books yesterday in a day, and this one took me over a month and I didnt even get halfway through, which for me shows I didn’t love it, and a book that doesn’t grab your attention is not always worth reading until the end.
This is my honest review, of course if you have any comments to make please don’t be afraid to leave them below.
