Special rings

I like wearing rings on cold days instead of bracelets sometimes because it allows a much more casual effect towards your outfit. From left to right you can see that both rings are different but i love them both so much. The 1st ring is Vivienne Westwood and shows the unique Vivienne Wood orb. It is made from blue crystals and i think it is really sweet. £115

The ring on the Right is very unique and different. Vivienne Westwood again. They do this ring in different styles and colours. I think the newest one is blue, but I like black more as it is more bold and unique. The ring is made out of three rings together and have only one way to wear. when I first bought the ring, I got it stuck from wearing it the wrong way. I love Vivienne Westwood because their style are unique and different.

Jewelery Craze

I love jewelery and my mum always tells me off for buying and buying and buying. I cant help it. I think that they express all your feelings and your personality. They bring colour and style to your outfits and wearing jewelery of course makes everything prettier.

The necklace from the previous Image was bought from Gucci. I love that necklace because I think its very feminine and its not over the top for daily use. However, the interlocking G sometimes flips and goes upside down apart from that it is perfect! It is called interlocking G motif Pendant £165.

Another two pieces of jewelery that I absolutely cannot live without is my Pandora bracelet. I just love it so much because I can customise it to how ever I like with the separate beads. My sister bought me the bracelet for my 19Th birthday and now its all full. It can be a great idea for others to get you too ;) the charms vary from £1000 to £20 depending on what style and material. You can see this from my bracelet shown below, there are all shapes, colours and types really allowing you to customise to how you adore it.

Daily Fresh & Simple Look

This is my daily look which is very simple. It is great for daily shopping or University because its long lasting and also fresh. All the products I used are from Bobbi Brown unless stated otherwise. The products I have used are:

1. Protective Face Lotion SPF 15
I used this to prime my skin after washing, It allows my foundation therefore to last longer and create a smooth natural effect. I have another blog regarding this moisturiser lotion if it interests you.

2. Moisture Rich Foundation SPF 15
Apply foundation to the entire face adapting to the needs of each section with a foundation brush. I have different skin tones therefore i apply more in some area than others. I have another blog regarding this product if it interests you.

3. Tinted Eye Brightener
Apply the brightener to the under eyes. Smooth with your finger as the warmth will melt the product allowing a better application. this can cover any dark circles as it acts as a concealer too. It gives me an extra push to the eye area as it brightens and make me look more awake and fresh.

4. Sheer Finish Loose Powder Finish
Apply a thin layer of this powder to the entire face with a kabuki brush. This will allow your foundation to set and also matten your face and reduce any oily effect. I use loose powder because it allows much more natural effect rather than pressed powder.

5. Dior Sourcils Poudre
Even though this is a pencil, it is actually known as a powder eye brow pencil. I love it because the fact that it is powder, allows a natural finish to your brows giving full coverage. Apply the pencil starting from the bottom of the brow and work to the end going slightly darker at the end. this will give u a natural and not to sharp effect.

6. Long Wear Gel Black Eye liner
Apply this eyeliner with an fine eye liner brush however I like using an angled brush as it allow me to draw a smooth fine line easily. I like using gel eye liners because for a daily basis, it isn't too sharp making it look a bit too much.

7. Electric heat Eye lash curler (Bought from Sasa)
Curl your lashes to widen your eyes to enhance the fresh and awake look. I like using a heated curler because it lasts longer and also it creates a natural curl because sometimes i find manual curlers crimping my lashes more than curling.

8. Dior Addict Ultra Gloss
Apply a thin layer onto lips with applicator. I like this lipgloss because it adds an extra bit of colour to your look. On a daily basis I tend to only use lipgloss raher than lipstick because it can really dry your lips up, therefore it would be best ro regulary apply lipgloss when your at home or before sleeping.

9. Estee Lauder Projectionist Mascara
I love this mascara because it gives high definition and volume to my lashes. Also i like it because it looks soo nice too. Apply this mascara to your top lashes with a few coats to give fill coverage.

Kiss my lips

I really like to boost my look with lipstick and lip gloss. In the picture shown I have included my 3 most loved products.

1. Dior Addict Ultra Gloss £20
I love this lip gloss because the colours within this range are beautiful. Here i have chosen the colour 'Pink Flirt' because it gives a fresh and natural effect.

2. Dior Addict high Shine £21
This lip stick is all you will need, it is long lasting and also acts like a lip gloss too. The colour is not too bold for daily use and gives a translucent effect.

3. Bobbi Brown Treatment Lip Shine £17.50
This product acts as a lip balm also to your lips. This is because it contains natural Cocoa and Shea Butters, Jojoba, Apricot Kernel and Avocado oils. Peptides, along with Vitamin C and Paracress, stimulate collagen production to reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the lips. It also contains SPF 15 which is even better.

J'adore Louis Vuitton!!

My new buy, I love jewelery and I always wear it where ever I go just to spice it up.

I bought this Louis Vuitton bangle at the store because i fell in love with it. The colour purple clashes with the the bring lime green gives a fresh feeling.
I love this bangle because it adds extra colour to my outfit. It was £205, expensive but worth it! I love it so much.

I love Louis Vuitton very much, all the accessories and handbags are made of high quality and you really do get what you pay for. from using bags for many different designers, I still think that Louis Vuitton ones look better and also better to use.

Perfume Perfect

I love collecting perfume not only because they smelly beautiful but of what it looks like. You must admit, some of the bottle looks amazing!! Also one of the main reasons why I use perfume is because it puts me in a good mood. When the smell is in the air, it freshens my mind and allows me to gain confidence and self esteem.
These are just a few of the perfume collections I have. From left to right, I have:

1. Vivienne Westwood Boudior Sin Garden £32

2. Gucci Envy Me £40 (100ml)

3. Gucci Guilty £47

4. Marc Jacob Lola £45 (50ml)

5. Paco Robanne Black XS £33 (50ml)

The ultimate concealer kit

Bobbi Browns creamy concealer kit is an essential. The kit includes two compartments and also a sponge.

The 1st compartment is a creamy concealer. This can be applied with a concealer brush to cover all blemishes, dark circles and uneven skin tones thoroughly and effectively.

The 2nd compartment includes loose powder which holds the concealer to place and create a Matt effect allowing a long lasting finish.

This product can be used anytime of the day and for regular touch ups. It is one of the best concealers i have used as it is compact and allows me to have full control . The cream based concealer is not too thick or oily as sometimes it can clog up my pores or create a dry look.

Apply after moisturiser, before or after foundation depending on personal preference and finish with a loose powder. I like to use loose powder on a daily basis as it creates a natural effect and does not give a heavy and tight feeling.

Protective Face Lotion SPF 15

This Bobbi Brown moisturiser is a very useful lotion for me. I find it very useful because the fact that it contains SPF 15, it means that it protects my skin from UV radiation reducing the risk of skin cancer. I like this product because even though it it seems oily, it soaks into your skin quickly therefore allowing your face to be fresh and light almost instantly.

Apply this to freshly washed skin on the morning before make up application with 2 or 3 pumps. This allows an even coverage. Avoid the delicate eye area as this can be used with another product.

It also acts as a primer before make-up which makes it even better. This means that applying the product before make up application, it allows my make up to have a better coverage and last longer and become smoother.

The moisturiser is approximately £32, with a white glass bottle and black pump. Even though It is 50ml, it can be used for a long time. I use mine every morning and it still hasn't run out yet after 2 months.

Curling eyelashes cant be any easier..

I have discovered a must have item for every womans make up bags! A heated eye lash curler which is very easy to use and curls every lash quickly. This product is powered by one simple AA battery. When clicking it on, it heats up the wires within the black applicator. Therefore, instead of the usual curler, you press your eye lashes onto the stick therefore curling the lashes.

Im in with love this product because it is in a handy size and looks stylish. It also has a small red rubber ball on the top which turns white when hot. This lets you see the temperature and know when it is ready to use. It is a little expensive for a curler coming to £15. But it can last for a very long time and also it works very well on real or false eye lashes. It doesnt burn the delicate skin around the lashes therefore allowing it be safe to use.

Bobbi Brown Cleansing Oil

I cannot live without this product at all. Bobbi Brown Cleansing Oil is a must have item for everybody. It acts like a face wash which also removes all sign of dirt and make up including eyelash adhesive. Apply a few squirts of the oil to your clean dry hands and massage onto face. This product can be used on the delicate eye are so dont worry about rubbing all the eye make up off, you will look like a panda during this as all the products rub off. Rinse face throughly, dry then apply your usual routine. This product can be used daily without a problem, leaving your skin soft and fresh.

I like this product because it is made with Olive, Jojoba oils and ginger root extracts. It also restores all natural oils on your face therefore not leaving your face too dry and tight. It also calms the skin to reduce redness and dry skin. I love this product and I use it every night to remove all diry from the day.

Lashes, Lashes, Lashes!

I think eye lashes really do play a part in make up. They can change your whole face expression and look. Therefore I sometimes use false eye lashes to enhance my look whether it is on a daily basis or a night out or even just for that something extra. Here I recommend a Japanese product for the needs of eyelashes. I like these eye lashes because the quality are very nice and strong, however it still gives a natural and light effect.

The adhesive glue is a must have. Ive used so many different types but this one is just WOW! it dries fast and black so it therefore blends in with your eyeliner.

Personally i think eye lashes are a must have item for all women. Especially for me as I am single eye lidded therefore eye lashes really do widen my eyes. When applying your eyelashes, I have learnt to apply it closer to your crease line, therefore when it dries, it will enchance your crease and create a double eyelid effect.

Make up Brushes

While my parents were on holiday in Hong Kong, they managed to pick up this great make up brush set. this was picked up from SaSa beauty store and for a cheap price. It came in a variety of colours and sizes to suit the individuals needs.

The set is stored in a pocket with compartments for each brush and also a larg zip pocket for accessories e.g. eye lash curlers.
I love this set because it contains all the brushes which I can think of. This includes foundation brush, contouring brush, blusher brush, eye brow brush, eye liner brush (many different ones) and eye shadow brushes including smudge brush. YES, it has everything in it! All this comes tucked inside a nice bronze pouch ideal for travel. The brushes are standard size however they do come in travel sizes too.
Currently ive used only the
foundation, blusher and eye liner brush and i can tell the quality of the brushes are very good even better than a few MAC ones ive used. I've also managed to store my other brushes inside the compartments making it even better!!

Tinted Eye Brightener

This unique and effective eye brightener is a must have item for your make-up collection. I found this concealer easy to use because it is small and with a few twists, it liquid gradually comes out to the included high quality brush. I am currently using the colour Bisque as it is one shade lighter than my foundation therfore allowing a brighter effect towards my eye area. I generally use this at the beginning of the day to brighten up any dark circles from bad sleep and instantly it refreshes your look making you look awake and ready to go. However for many skin types, this may not give full coverage and therefore I will introduce you to other products which I also purchased in following blogs.

This application is quick easy and simple also it can act like a touch up for daily usage. When using the item from brand new, it may take several twists before the concealer liquid appears. This is just to activate the product. After that it takes me only around 5 clicks for the concealer to come up. Even though it includes a small brush, I tend to only use the brush to apply dots under the eye and then use my finger to spread. This way it melts the product giving a better effect.

Moisture Rich Foundation SPF 15

This foundation is one of the best liquid foundations I have tried. Even though it is a liquid based product, it doesn’t seem to block up your pores or have a heavy or thick effect to the skin. It’s a must have item as it is ideal for medium to full coverage. I’m currently using the colour Warm Beige 3.5 as this brings a sunshine glow to my skin. I used to use the natural 4 tone, but it was dull for my colour tone.

The application can be done in many ways. If you are in a hurry and just like a basic thin coverage, you can dot the foundation around the area’s needed and smudge evenly around your face. I usually tend to use a foundation brush as it gives a bit more coverage.

Tip: When trying the product in Bobbi Brown, my makeup artist told me not to apply foundation alone around the eye area especially under the eye where your dark circles are. This is because the product is too thick for the skin around the eye area. Therefore other applications are needed. I now use tinted eye brightener first then apply a thin amount of powder based foundation thinly around to create a matt effect.

Beauty for me is a must in life, like a beautiful smile that you cant pretend...

It allows you to express your self with creative colours and textures...

All from within...

I like to use this blog to introduce you to many products that I find amazing, pure and true.

I hope it gives you help to the world of beauty ...
