I am back with yet another tutorial , this time I created a smokey green eye which is something unusual for me as I am more of a neutral /bronzed kinda girl however I am happy with the way it turned out, its not your everyday eye look but for a night out in town this would look gorgeous.

The Anastasia Beverlly Hills is still on my top used products and once again in this tutorial I used this as part of the eye look and for contouring. I used the green gosh eyeshadow palette which I believe is no longer available however any green eyeshadow palette will work with this look.

I wanted to keep the look smokey yet not to dark and therefore I did not use and eyeliner instead I used the Maybelline Push Up Mascara  with a pair of Eyelashes to add a more define yet eye look.

For the face I used the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer I find this product to be very brightening therefore perfect for adding brightens underneath your eyes and brightening any other areas on your face.   Having combination skin I do find I need to set the make up in order for it to stay on all day and I have been using the Loreal Infaliable Powder for a long time now and seem to always go back to this not only super affordable but amazing product.

Of course no bronzed look is complete without a bronzer and the Seventeen Bronzer & Highlighter  do an amazing job at giving me a beautiful glow and highlight.

Once again I kept it nude and simple on the lips with the NYX Lip Liner.

Make up/ beauty takes me back on how I got this blog started and as much as I love fashion I want to bring both to my blog as I said in the video, and hence this bronzed / burnt orange look I created in this eye make up tutorial  which I really hope you like.  I have been loving orangey toned eyeshadows , they compliment brown eyes really nicely and give a nice warm look. I created this simple look using only a few colours , it is so simple yet looks like you’ve made an effort. I hope you enjoyed the  tutorial.

The Anastasia Beverlly Hills is a new product to me and so far I have been loving it and how versatile it is, in this tutorial I used this as part of the eye look and for contouring. Following my recent review I have been still loving this  MUA Undress Me Palette  the colours are stunning and so pigmented. The main colour in this tutorial was the gorgeous brunt orange eyeshadow from Inglot  but of course you can use any similar orange shade to re-create this look. As with any eyeshadow tutorial , blending is key , its important to blend in all eyeshadow colours together for a soft transitioned look.

I wanted to keep the look smokey yet not to dark and therefore I did not use and eyeliner instead I used the Maybelline Push Up Mascara  with a pair of Eyelashes to add a more define yet eye look.

For the face I used the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer I find this product to be very brightening therefore perfect for adding brightens underneath your eyes and brightening any other areas on your face.  Contouring has been and still is a big make up trend , personally I love to do a cream contour then set it with a powder, I found that the NYX two sided concealer wand   is a perfect tone for my skin colour but it is also super blend-able. Having combination skin I do find I need to set the make up in order for it to stay on all day and I have been using the Loreal Infaliable Powder for a long time now and seem to always go back to this not only super affordable but amazing product.

Of course no bronzed look is complete without a bronzer and the Seventeen Bronzer & Highlighter  do an amazing job at giving me a beautiful glow and highlight.

If you follow me and my blog you will know , this girl only wears a nude lip , it is very rare for me to have a bright colour on. I am a big lover of lip liners but I do find it ca be tricky to find one with the perfect colour and consistency , the NYX Lip Liners tick both boxes for  me the colours are stunning and the formula is creamy and pigmented.

I recently tried out the MUA “Undress Me Too” palette, a brand which is super affordable and available in Superdrug’s. The palette comes in a plastic case , the packaging itself is pretty simple and not the nicest however the colours are super pigmented, long lasting and super bendable.

The Undress me Too palette comes with 12 beautiful Nude Shades , a mix from warm toned to cool toned colours with a vast variety of tones. Having said that the palette holds mainly shimmer colours with only three mattes so if you are all about the matte look this is not the palette for you.  Personally I tend to go for matte eye shadows for everyday look but occasionally I do like to switch it up , this palette is no my to go to when doing a night out look. 

The eyeshadows can have a little bit of fall down when applied but for the price tag this palette is at it  is not something to complain about, to overcome this I simply apply my eye make up prior to the rest of my face make up  and this is no longer an issue. 

Bronzed, gold eye make up looks have been my absolute favourite for a while , I used the Undress me Palette to create this gorgeous golden smokey eye look seen on the photos.

Affordable yet long lasting polish range ,  yep it ca be tricky to find but I have been introduced to a new nail polish range Annika The Edge Nails which ticks both boxes. The brand supplies not only nail polishes but a wide range of nail and beauty products too. With their high quality yet affordable products I would honestly recommend giving this brand a go whether you’re a proffesional  or simply looking  for an great quality nail polish to use at home. 

 

What stood out to me about these polishes that whilst being affordable at £4.20!! they have a super long lasting finish and do not chip , I would recommend  putting a top coat on top as this would pro-long it  even more but it also gives it  a nice glossy finish.  The polishes have a thicker consistency to your usual polish however apply beautifully and even after one coat the colour , however I would suggest applying two coats. 

They have a great colour range from nudes, reds, pinks to darker shades so theres something for everyone. Personally I tend to go for the lighter new shades, theres something classic about nude subtle nails,  however lately I have been loving the Born Sinner ( red) shade from this range , its a beautiful red and perfect for the Festive season. 

The four shades I was kindly sent are Cafe Au Lait , a stunning warm nude  , Blushing Beauty a very subtle light pink,  Clean Slate which is a beautiful taupe grey and Born Sinner a vibrant red. I have used all of the shades and can honestly say I loved them all. These would make a perfect  Christmas gift for any nail polish lover , be sure to check out their range here.

 ACNE ULTRA CREAM

Its no secret that the key to great skin starts with skincare, its so important to use product suited for your skin type but also to know what it is your putting on your face. A few months ago I was kindly sent the Acne Ultra Cream by the Derma Group, now I am very careful when it comes to trying out new skincare products having combination but sensitive and acne prone skin it takes very little for my skin to react to products.However  what caught my attention to this particular product is the fact its a natural , chemical free formula designed to help soothe and calm your skin.  

Now whilst I do not suffer from severe acne I only get the occasional pimple I have noticed my skin looking clearer , smooth but also nourished, as having tried other skincare products aimed at acne they can really dry your skin out.  So do not be put off by the name ‘Acne’ as whether its pores, whiteheads or pimples the amazing ingredients found in this face cream have been designed to help fight all the problems listed. The cream whilst having a quiet thick formula does absorb in to your skin very well without leaving an oily residue. 

Inside Acne Ultra Clear, you’ll find nothing but nature’s finest ingredients – all working together to clear up and repair your skin.The ingredients in the cream are not only natural but also very beneficial for your skin , some of which include:

Olive oil –  helps to restore your natural moisture balance and soothes dry skin .

Coconut oil – i call this the miracle worker as its got so many uses. Coconut oil has a small molecular structure making it a superb absorber . 

Beeswax – Amazing at holding in all of your skin’s moisture and unclogging those pesky pores. 

These are just some of the amazing ingredients found but if  you would like to find out more simply click here for a full list of all the natural goodness thats within the cream. Overall I think this is an amazing product worth trying , it is all natural so the smell reflects that however I personally prefer herbal creams as lets be honest the only reason some creams have a strong nice smell to them is simply because they have been perfumed which can cause a reaction to your skin.  

The lovely team at Derma Group are kindly offering a 10% off for all you lovely readers!! simply click here to get your coupon and defiantly let me know how you get on with this cream!!
