Clinique take the day off balm review.

Hello all, welcome back it’s been a while.  Today I wanted to review a high end product by Clinique called take the day off.   I have seen this product everywhere on youtube and on social media.  People have sworn by this product, so I thought why not check it out myself.

Clinique take the day off £22
Lightweight cleansing balm quickly dissolves stubborn eye and face makeups, including those with sunscreen. Transforms from a solid balm to a silky, fluid oil upon application. Cleans thoroughly, rinses off completely. Non-greasy. Non-drying. For all skin types. Clinique balm


This is the first product I have bought from Clinique and I am in love.  The idea behind this balm is:  You do not need to wet your face first, and its not damaging to the skin like normal face wipes can be, due to the alcohol used the keep the wipes wet.
All I have to do is take some of the balm and rub it in my hands, warm it up and it becomes very soft, sort of like coconut oil.  Then I apply it directly to my face and it removes my makeup seamlessly, then all I have to do is wash it off.
Since using this I have found removing my makeup such an easy task now, and my skin is better for it.  I have less spots, and reduced redness in my face.    It states it doesn’t dry the skin out and I agree completely.  Removing my makeup is just so easy now, this balm requires no effort and my makeup is removed straight away, where as facial wipes don’t always remove everything, and I find I use about 3-4 wipes just to make sure all my makeup is gone, but when I wash my face after there is still makeup in my pores.

I am definitely going to repurchase this product, it has changed my skin care routine for good.

Makeup HAUL 

   
 
Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog, to keep up to date please press the follow button.

Well I went shopping Saturday with a friend and went a little crazy.  I went to Boots first which is a drug/pharmacy store to get my favourite foundation at the moment which is, Maybelline dream satin liquid.  Whilst there I saw the new Dream velvet foundation which has been trending on Instagram and on other blogs, so I thought I would buy that as Maybelline was having a deal where I could buy one product and get the other half price, totalling at £11.98.

I then needed some more concealer from urban Decay as I’m sure I’m about to run out of the naked skin concealer. Whilst there the sales girl said that they were having a deal that day where if I bought £50 worth of products I could get £10 off.  Well I was sucked in then and asked her which was best,  she suggested the primer potion which I have been keeping an eye on for a while now and thought I need to give it a go, as the reviews are amazing.  Then she suggested a setting spray, the spray I bought was the 16hour one and she said it is suitable for dry and oily skin,  bonus. So I ended up paying £59 in Urban Decay oops.

I’m thinking of doing a review for all individually for you all if you’re interested.

Makeup look/ Concealer techniques

 

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.
NEXT concealer:

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.
