Everyday natural look + essentials

IMG_1811

Hello all my lovely followers, and newbies.  I haven’t really shared with you all my everyday essentials in a while, and they have changed a bit.  I always use my makeup to achieve a natural look because, it is either for work or  just general out and about.  It has been a while since I have done a really glam look.   
Below are my main essentials to achieve my natural look, I have recently started to fill in my brows and I have noticed a significant improvement to my appearance.

Lets start from the base to the finish shall we?  Most of these I have reviewed, therefor I have linked them below.

I have reviewed a lot of the products above already, but I haven’t included them all together for a while.  There is a mixture of expensive and affordable makeup above, it has taken me a while to gather this little collection, and I do own more makeup, but these are my favourite at the moment.
They are all super durable, I wear them on 12.5 hour shifts as a nurse and they can withstand all that time.

For more reviews, demos, or before and afters please comment below 🙂 I reply pretty fast.

GALifornia by Benefit : Blush

galifornia-hero

£24.50

Benefit’s NEW GALifornia golden pink blusher is part sun, pure fun! It blends bright pink with shimmering gold, capturing the warm glow of California sunshine in a box. The signature GALifornia Dreamin’ scent features notes of pink grapefruit & vanilla. Comes complete with a custom rounded blush brush for soft, diffused application.

  • Golden pink powder blush
  • Artwork inspired by vintage California surfer girls
  • Includes rounded blush brush and mirror  (Benefit website)


Okay I am in LOVE with this blush.  I went to Benefit on my birthday just to try out some of their brow products as they are well known for them, and everyone I watch on YouTube raves about their brows, so I thought lets give them a go.  

The girl there was lovely, she offered to do my whole face with their best products as 1. It was my birthday and 2.  I own nothing by Benefit.   This blush Galifornia was gorgeous when she applied it, their is some gold shimmer to the blush which gave my cheeks a lovely subtle glow, and I have had nothing but compliments since wearing it at work.
The formula is very pigmented, but I cannot get enough and sometimes go over board, OOPS.

The packaging is so attractive and will definitely catch your eye, as well as the internal product, SOO PRETTY.  I am so glad I paid the extra money for this product because it was well worth it, I have even stopped using my Milani baked blush since using GALifornia, just because I have become addicted.
I am well aware it is a pricey product, but I can reassure you it is definitely worth the price, it lasts a long time, and the colour payout is amazing. The blush does come with a brush which I do not tend to use but do keep as they are a good size for travelling as they fit inside the product, I use my real techniques blush brush to apply my blush.

Over all I give this product a 5 star rating, I am blown over with the quality.

Lets get started:
Firstly I can not wait to review these products fully for you all soon.

loreal-true-match-and-smashbox-photo-finish-pore-minimising-primer

Smashbox Pore Minimizing Primer £28

WHAT IT IS: Say goodbye to visible pores! Prime to perfection, plus dramatically blur and reduce the appearance of pores instantly and for up to 8 hours.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: This non-drying formula also absorbs oil all day for flawlessly smooth, shine-free skin.

JUST THE FACTS: • Visibly reduces & blurs pores—instantly! • Mattifies shine & controls oil for up to 8 hours • Sweat & humidity-resistant
Smashbox

First impressions of this primer were, it looked like a normal cream primer when applied to my hand however, when I started to apply it to my face, it instantly dried.  My skin instantly became less shiny, and felt smooth to the touch.  On closer inspection I compared my pores to before and after and, I am blown away! I could practically see no pores.  This was an amazing result as nothing in the past has managed to accomplish this, especially on my nose where my pores are their largest.
A fantastic first impression for me.

L’Oreal True Match Foundation £9.99

L’Oreal’s #1 foundation is now available in 23 shades and matches 98% of UK skintones. L’Oreal’s velvety formula matches your skin’s unique tone and texture, for a true to skin finish: flawless, blendable, and never fake.

L’Oreal’s 23 shades range from warm to neutral to cool undertones, to ensure your foundation is right for you. Whilst your skin tone is visible on the surface and can alter through the seasons, your skin undertones are determined at a deeper level, they are part of your skin and never change. Each complexion has its own undertone: pink (cool), neutral or golden (warm), so you can now find a match that’s true to you.
L’Oreal at Boots

I swear when I bought this in the past I must have had an old formula which I did not like.  While in town I saw this foundation on sale again with more shades, I decided to buy the Rose Vanilla shade.
I used a Real Techniques complexion sponge to apply the foundation and I have achieved amazing results.  I must not have known what I was doing in the past because I was blown away with the results this time.
The consistency was a liquid and very runny however, I only applied one thin layer and found the foundation to be pretty much full coverage, I only needed a small amount of concealer.
It did not sink into any dry skin around my nose or forehead from the cold weather, and it did not build up around my spot prone areas.
I found it dried to a matte finish and didn’t need powder to set.
Flawless coverage was correct.

Overall

Very impressed so far, I am definitely going to be reviewing these products further in the future for you all.
And these two together gave me the best complexion I have ever achieved.  Light weight and smooth.  They both lasted for a long time throughout the day.  The true test will be when I go back to work and I can really put these products through it all.
I am very impressed.

No book reviews

Hey everyone, I apologize that I haven’t wrote a review for over a week. I am struggling, I have been sent a lot of books for review and it is taking me a while to review them all.

I do love my books don’t get me wrong but I am finding it hard to make time to read which is upsetting.
University at the moment is crazier than I thought, those of you who follow me know I am a nursing student and in my last year. At the moment I am studying for an essay due at the end of January which is taking a lot of time because of the research I need to do.
Another problem I have is my eyes, I haven’t had an eye test in over a year so my eyes are becoming worse even when I wear glasses, my sight is more blurry than normal and my eyes feel like they are on fire, I know this is from spending a lot of studying and uni time staring at a computer or a PowerPoint, this is making me to tired to read.

I promise I will be reviewing faster soon, but at the moment please bare with me I just need a little time to read these books. Hopefully when I get new glasses I will feel better and less lethargic.

Thank you all of you for still following, book blogging and beauty blogging is a dream come true for me, and to share it with you all is amazing. Shame it’s not a full time job eh?

Love
Hannah
