Get Unready With Me

beauty

Hi Everyone! Since I did a get ready with me I thought it would be appropriate to do a get unready me. I’m basically going to be showing you how to get rid of the products I initially used in the get ready with me post :).

To start off I use the Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water on two little cotton rounds and I just let that sit on my eyes for couple of second to make sure that the product grabs the mascara which is a little harder to get off. I actually really like this micellar water because it pretty much gets rid of a lot of the mascara that usually kind of still sticks to the lashes, it doesn’t necessarily take all the eye makeup off but it does get rid of most of it.

I then take one of the Nivea 3-in-1 Care Cleansing Micellar Wipes and just clean the rest of my face and neck. I really like these wipes because they’re not too wet and they’re actually really soft for my sensitive skin and they have micellar water so it does the extra job compared to regular make up remover wipes. I don’t really get a lot of redness or burns or whatever on my face, which I do get with some make up wipes.

I like to just make sure that everything is off my face so I like to use a face wash to kind of get rid of everything that gets left behind. I am actually trying a different face wash since I couldn’t find my beloved Nivea one at the store. So I’m currently using the Johnson’s Hydration Essentials Facial Cleanser*. I’ve not been using this face wash for long enough to really judge it, but having said that, it’s pretty good so far and I’ve noticed the redness from my Rosacea reducing, which is good. The scent is also not overwhelming and pretty refreshing so that’s also a bonus Sometimes

I like to go over my face again with a big cotton round with the micellar water, when I’m like not lazy. I always finish off with my moisturizer which I’ve mentioned before, it’s the Nivea Care Intensive Hydration Cream*. I really like this because it has helped me reduce a lot of dryness on my skin and I also really like how it sits under make-up so I really don’t have any bad things to say about it at all.

So yeah, that pretty much rounds it all up! Hope you guys enjoyed reading today’s post and I’ll write you guys in the next post.

Get Ready With Me

beauty

Hey everyone! Today I thought it would be cool to do a ‘Get Ready With Me’ blog style. I’ll be sharing my make-up routine and I will try and put up all the links for the products. I unfortunately couldn’t find all the items online so not everything has a link. Either way, I hope you guys enjoy it and let’s goooooo

I start off in the morning by washing my face in the shower with the Nivea Daily Exfoliating Anti-Impurities Face Wash. I really like this face wash even though it is for oily skin. It makes my face feel smooth and the beads in it exfoliate nicely, it also cleans the pores really well.

 

After showering I usually start doing my make-up and I start off by moisturizing my face with the Nivea Care Intensive Hydration creme, I really like this for combating my dry skin and it sits really nicely under my make-up.

Moving on to make up, I use the Etos (Dutch brand) CC Radiance Cream. This cc cream is the only base that actually suits my skin tone perfectly, I always have trouble finding the right shade since I kind of have a blue undertone in my skin. A lot of foundations or bases have a pink undertone and it’s so frustrating. Anyway, I then put a concealer under my eyes, on my forhead, on my chin and down the bridge of my nose. I use the Cosmia Correcter Pen. I really like this for brightening those areas. I usually put a different concealer under my eyes and then this concealer on top or just on its own. I bought this concealer a lighter shade just for brightening.

I powder my face with the Cosmia Compact Powder. I really like this powder but the brand has a small shade range and the shades are usually pinky toned. So I just lightly swipe the powder across my face to not exaggerate the pink. For bronzer I use the Miss Sporty Tan Up Your World Bronzing Powder in Hawaiian Flower. I use this for contouring my cheeks and I really like it a lot. It’s pretty pigmented so I would take a light hand with this.

I usually like going with pinky peach shades for blush. The one I used today is the NYX High Definition Blush in Hamptons. I really like this shade and this blush (I mean I really like NYX make-up) the shade is not overly pigmented so it doesn’t shock when you put it on, it’s build-able and a soft formula which is a huge plus. The NYX packaging is also really cute.

The highlighter I used today comes from the Makeup Revolution Bare Euphoria Palette. It has 5 eyeshadows and a blush, bronzer and highlighter trio. I use the highlighter in this palette a lot because it’s so pigmented and it just gorgeous. I actually used 2 palettes for my eyeshadow today. I used the Sephora It Palette in Delicate Nude. I love the shades they choose for this palette. This palette gets so much love and I love travelling with. Another much loved and much traveled palette is the Makeup Revolution Redemption Iconic 3 Palette. So many of the shades in this palette are similar to the ones in the Sephora palette, but they are unique in their own way of course. The shimmer shades are so pigmented and are everything.

 

 

 

The shades I used for today’s look were: shade 1 in the crease on top shade 2 and then shade 3 and blend them all together. I then put shade 4 on the inner part of the lid and shade 5 on the outer part and blended everything together with a little bit of the NYX Hot Singles Eye Shadow in Stiletto as my transition shade. After brushing through my brows I used shade 6 on the brow bone and the inner corner of my eyes. These two palettes are great for travelling since you can create any kind of eyelook with them. They’re my little babies and my favourite palettes that I own. After curling my lashes I double up with mascara and use the Cosmia Dimension mascara. This mascara is really good for more length to the lashes and then I put the NYX Curvaceous Lush Lashes mascara on top. I like this one, on its own, for a more natural look but together with the Cosmia one for added volume.

To finish the whole look off I’m using the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Sao Paulo. I generally really like their liquid matte creams. They last really long and don’t really dry your lips out. NYX also has a wide range of colours for their lip products.

Hope you guys enjoyed getting ready with me (make-up style) and I’ll write you in the next post!

Yayyyy It’s Friday; Fave Friday

Favourites

September 2017

Hey Everyone! Today is going to be the first Favourite Friday!!! These are just the things I will be discussing this month doesn’t mean that it will be make up, music and books every month, it will vary.  So without further ado, let’s get started!

Make-up
I want to start off by saying that I’ve been buying more cruelty-free make up rather than animal tested products. It’s something I really care about; I like to do a lot of research on a specific brand when I want to buy a certain item. I’ve been wearing a lot of make-up lately and trying out a lot too, but these 3 items are the ones I’ve been enjoying the most and they’re all cruelty- free J. First off: The Make-up Revolution London Redemption Palette, the Iconic 3 one. I really like this palette and use it pretty much daily, it has a nice selection of neutral shades as well as shimmery shades for little extra bedazzling. I like that the shades last a long time, they don’t crease and are easy to blend. The next 2 items are both from NYX. I really like NYX products, they’re cruelty-free but they’re also good quality, I own quite a few products from them and I really don’t have any complaints. The Hot Singles Eye Shadows for example, I only have 3 but I wouldn’t mind buying more as they’re nice smooth eyeshadows and they have a nice selection of shades. The one I’ve been using a lot is in the colour ‘Stiletto’, it’s a light taupe shade and I’ve been using this mostly on my lid as an eyeshadow base. I only own one blush from them but nonetheless I really like it a lot. It’s easy to blend, lasts a long time, doesn’t look cakey and they have nice blush colours as well. The blush is the High Definition Blush in the colour ‘Hamptons’ and it is a pinky-coral shade that gives a nice natural flush of colour.

 

Reading
I’ve been reading a lot during lately, with school not having started yet at the beginning of the month, I had a lot of time. One thing I do is start multiple books at the same time, not for any reason at all, I just do. It’s a bad habit, but hey, I can enjoy multiple books all at the same time so it’s good. The 3 books I have been reading this September are:

  • The Origins of Species by Charles Darwin
  • A History of the World in Twelve Maps by Jerry Brotton.
  • And A Long Way to A Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers

The Origins of Species is a good book if you’re really into sciency things and the evolution. I just really wanted to read this book because I became really interested in History a couple years back and I love history and I specifically like the period of enlightment where it was so important for scientists and naturists to express the way the world worked. Education in the way the world was set up and how life began, became a really important subject for everyday life in that period. I really like learning about the important educational value of certain things in that period. So I decided to read the book for educational reasons and the fact that I wanted to know on what facts Darwin based his research and how he was treated fort his way of thinking and such. I really do recommend reading the book if you’re interested in the evolution and theories surrounding evolution as well as Darwin’s way of thinking.

A History of the World in Twelve Maps is another book about history but now much more the geographical value of history. The writer begins the book with an introduction to the different perspectives of world maps and how some people look at the world in one way but others in another way. The books are really interesting as it takes you through time and chronologically gives you the basic history of the world and the introduction of maps into the world of what it is today and how people used to look at the world in a geographical way. I can’t really explain what the book is about, you should really read it, especially if you like world maps (check!) and if you like history (check!). The book features pictures of different world maps from all kinds of ages and helps you build a picture with the stories.

The third book, A Long Way to A Small Angry Planet, is a book that I randomly came across in the bookshop and it just caught my attention, mostly because of the cover (it has a beautiful stargazy sky on the front) but also because of the title. I had never read sci-fi books and I never thought I would like them, even though I do like sci-fi films. But I just decided to give it a try, and when I started reading it I couldn’t put the book down! It’s such an unusual story and amazing creativity and imagination from the writers’ side. It’s a really good book if you’re very much of the details or even if you like forming specific pictures in your mind with what you’re reading, which I really like. The book is about a girl(Rosemary) who leaves her home planet and starts working on a spaceship (The Wayfarer) that travels through the galaxies. On the ship are different species whom she befriends and learns about their way of living. And then the crew gets an offer of a lifetime and takes it and that’s when the real adventure begins. When I bought this one I also bought the second one, which I can’t wait to read, but unfortunately, halfway through this month, I lost the first book, I can’t find it anywhere and AHHHH. But I might just get a new one and read it again I also I think I just put it somewhere and just forgot where and I haven’t really really lost it but oh well.

Music
I have been listening to 2 of my favourite artists a lot this month: Lana Del Rey and Oh Wonder. Oh Wonder is like my favourite band and they came out with their new album about 3 months ago and I’ve been listening to it like mostly non-stop. As well as the new Lana Del Rey album, like non-stop. Oh Wonder has something really mellow about their songs and so relaxing and peaceful and it really creates this vibe of relaxation.  Ultralife has been just like their last album (Oh Wonder OW) where there’s not one song that I skip of don’t like, which is really rare, OW couldn’t do that with their first album and neither with this album. All the songs are so good and my favourite ones are Slip Away, Bigger Than Love and Waste. When they released their promotional singles for the album they announced that they were selling signed copies of the album as well. I usually play songs on Spotify but I had to get the album and hearing the songs on an actual radio rather than on your phone or whatever is just amazing. You can hear all the individual instruments and it’s really exciting to hear!

Lana Del Rey her new album, Lust for Life has also been a favourite, I love her music style and the way she shows diversity in her voice and songs. I like they hopeful future vibe of this album, considering all the things going on in the world lately. It really shows where she stands as an artist and her opinion on these things. My favourite songs on the album are: White Mustang, Tomorrow Never Came (with Sean Ono Lennon AHHHHH) and Heroin. Her music style gives me vintage vibes, I like her Born to Die album a lot too!

Well everyone that’s it for this month’s Favourite Friday! Hope you guys enjoyed it and hope you have a nice October!! 🙂
