Over the past year, Bare Minerals has been launching various new products, including the Invisible Bronze Powder Bronzers.  I recently wrote about this bronzer as part of my ‘Make-up For Long and Busy Days’ post (click here to read more) as it is one of my favourite products for adding natural warmth and definition to my face. 

I’m fairly new to using bronzer and so I wanted something that would look natural, be easy to use and add some subtle warmth to the face.  This particular bronzer ticks all of those boxes for me. I thought it would be fun to write a more detailed post about this product, as I think it is such a natural and easy to use bronzer!

My Favourite Make-Up For Long and Busy Days

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In January, I was doing some intensive lecturing work and as part of that, I wanted my make-up to last well across the day.  I found some products within my existing make-up collection – and some new products – to be extremely long wearing.  Some of them also enabled me to skip parts of my usual make-up routine.  I thought it would be fun to put together a post on these products.  I might also try and do some more detailed posts on each product as well so let me know if that is something you would like to see!

Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in ‘Sparkling Bellini’

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Back in July 2016, I wrote a post featuring the Too Faced Sweethearts Bronzer (click here to read the post).  I really loved this product (and still do!) and it made me curious about the other Sweethearts products.  My cousin’s wife mentioned to me that she had purchased the Sweethearts blush in ‘Peach Beach’ and so I thought it would be fun to check out the range.  

After swatching (and re-swatching) each of the blushes, I settled on ‘Sparkling Bellini’.  This particular blush has now become one of my favourites whenever I want to add a peachy-pink glow to my cheeks.  The blush is made up of three complementary shades (more on that below), meaning you can get four different blush effects on your cheeks.  Versatile, glowy and peachy-pink cheeks – I love it!

#1 Make-up Organisation and Storage: Lips and Cheeks

One of my readers (shout out to Julie!) said that she would love to see how I organise and store my make-up collection.  I really enjoy reading this type of post on other sites so I thought, ‘why not put something together on my own site’?

It’s always fun to see how other people store and organise their make-up.  It’s also fun to look at pictures of other people’s make-up and see what they have in their personal collection!

Note: I’ve separated my make-up organisation and storage into articles based around different parts of my make-up collection.  Once I started writing, I realised that keeping it as one post was going to be too long and a bit overwhelming.  This first post is based around how I store my lip and cheek products.  If you want to know more about any of the products in the photos here, let me know.

I’ve been reading a lot about Charlotte Tilbury products recently and really fancied trying them out.  They are very pricey, though, and so I’ve held off buying any of the individual products.  The ‘Instant Look in a Palette’, though, really caught my interest as it contains smaller versions of some of Charlotte Tilbury’s most popular products – all in one handy travel-sized palette.

The palette is intended to give you just as it says in the name – an ‘Instant Look in a Palette: 5 Minute Face on the Go’.  This product is designed for women who just want a quick and easy way to look polished and naturally beautiful.  So an ‘Instant Look’ and a range of Charlotte Tilbury’s products in one palette – sounds good to me!

I recently purchased the Too Faced Sweethearts Bronzer in Sweet Tea and I absolutely love it.  Functional, glowy and also stylishly presented – what’s not to love?! This product is fantastic if you want something which gives you a sun-kissed finish and also looks wonderful on your dressing table.  It is also wonderful as a gift, in that it comes beautifully presented in the outer box and the inner packaging.
