Top 3 red lip tips

The party season is the perfect time for a red lip. Now, I love red lipstick all year round but it’s especially fun and festive at Christmas time. Here are my three top tips for perfecting your pout.

1. Use a liner
If you find it tricky to keep your red lip neat, start off with a sharp lip liner in the same shade as your lipstick and trace the outline of your lips first – just make sure you’ve got a steady hand, your liner is sharp and you don’t over line your lips. Plus, if you want your lipstick to last longer, you can fill in your lips with your liner before you apply your lipstick too. Lipliner is less slippy than lipstick and therefore it’s easier to control the outline of the colour.

Being A #NapQueen + New Beauty Buys

It might be a little bit early for a favourites post but I thought it was time as I’ve been loving all of these products for the past few weeks. There’s a mix of beauty, skincare, fashion and a tea in here, all perfect for the springtime.

Faves 2

First up are the Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Cleansing Wipes. These are new in the Neutrogena Visibly Clear Range and they’re the perfect morning pick me up for a quick cleanse or as the first step in my evening skincare routine to take off all my gunky makeup before going in with a cleansing gel or balm. Next and lastly in skincare is an eye cream. My love for avocados is growing by the day so it was only a matter of time until I picked up the Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado. I feel like my skin is definitely getting more dry in texture as I’m getting older and especially the skin around my eyes can feel like it needs some TLC so this is perfect as it’s super hydrating.

6 Badass Products I Can’t Live Without

Seeing as it’s Friday I thought I’d share some favourites because by the end of the week you might need those products that are going to make you feel totally badass! These are the ones I reach for when I need to psych myself up to take on the day.

When I want to rock a statement lip, I either go for the perfect orange-red colour with the easiest application ever – Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Timanfaya. This guy is the one for a quick slick of brightness! If I want a vampy lip I’ll go for MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Good To Be Bad which is awesome paired with a really dark lipliner.

Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder – Golden Light

This is a product I’ve wanted for ages and ages and when I received a John Lewis voucher for my graduation I knew exactly what  was going to end up in my make-up bag. Now, this isn’t a new product and I’m sure everyone and their beauty blogger has tried it but I really like it and I’ve wanted to add it to my collection for a while now. I was going to buy the shade Medium, but the girl on the counter recommended the Golden Light instead and I think she’s right, it suits me better than the red tones of the Medium shade. This gives a really natural glow and it feels silky soft on the skin. I’m currently using the Eco Tools Large Powder Brush to apply it and they go really nicely together.

Pretty Summer Fashion Wishlist

I’m definitely one for mentally bankrupting myself at least once a week, here’s my most recent wish list of goodies that I’m after for the coming months. If anyone’s used/reviewed any of these products then let me know if they’re any good!

First up are some beauty bits that I want to get my hands on for the coming sunshine. I read a review on Anna’s blog House of Bargain the other night about the Illamasqua Matte Veil Primer and it looks amazing, if anything’s going to control my shiny face, I want to get my hands on it. Her review was really good so go and check it out, it’s definitely convinced me that I want to buy it! Just waiting for another ASOS 25% off code to go wild on pretty much all of this stuff in this wish list! To go with the primer, I really want to try the NARS Sheer Matte foundation for slightly less coverage in the warmer months, I know loads of bloggers absolutely love the NARS Sheer Glow but I think the matte version will be better suited to my skin. Last but not least in the beauty wish list is the Bobbi Brown bronzer in Medium. I’ve wanted this for ages and I think I might treat myself soon!
