Top 3 Contour Pallets

I love beauty and everything about it ! So today I decided to do my top 3 contour pallets .

1)Kat Von D Shade and Light contour pallet

I am a huge Sephora fan. We don’t have one here in the UK as far as im aware, so online shopping it is ! They have such beautiful products and I recently stumble across this one recently and had to have it. I’m a big fan of Kat Von D cosmetics and this is just another top notch beauty item from the collection ! It is a powder contour pallet, there are three highlight shades and three darker contour shades. It also includes a step-by step tutorial featuring three easy, artistic ways to define your cheekbones, slim your face, and shape your nose, which is also really helpful if your just starting out or are just a beginner at it and need a little helping hand ! I found that it blended really well and the colour variation is wonderful, as I have darker skin, so I need a dark contour shade and this suits my needs perfectly ! It gives an effortlessly flawless yet natural look, and the colours are build-able, if you’re going for a dramatic evening look. The pigments are sheer making blending them into the skin easy.
I recommend!

2)Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit

I have also recently purchased the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour kit in shade Medium to Tan. I think its wonderful how they offer different tones kits , giving a lovely variety of you of fair skin or tanned skin. It contains 6 beautiful shades , Peaches & Cream, Macchiato, Nutmeg, Havana, Espresso, 3 for highlighting and 3 for contouring. all in a powder form. What I find really interesting is that 6 different shades are removable and refillable, the set contains all the color needed to start expertly emphasizing eyes, cheekbones, nose, and jawline.  Yet again another wonderful kit that blends extremely well and gives the face a glowing warm finish. Being a darker skinned woman I find that the highlight could have been more pigmented as I find you have to apply a fair amount to get any pay off. Apart from that I wouldn’t fault it.

3)CALIFORNIA BRONZE™ Multi Effect

Last but certainly not least we have the bareMinerals California Bronze Multi Effect Bronzing trip pallet. When I first got this in the post I loved it instantly, the packaging is so cute ! Since I have tanned skin I decided to swatch them to see how they would look with my darker skin tone, and they looked really good ! In this trio there are two beautiful contouring shades and one pretty highlighter. The highlighter is such a pretty shade it goes with absolutely anything and it has a golden finish to it, and it suits my skin tone wonderfully. These three shades are so flattering and can be worn day or night, if your going for a soft natural glowing look , or a nice evening look then it will work for both. They can also be combined for multidimensional warmth. The three shades it includes are READY Bronzer in The Ocean View (sheer matte bronze), The High Dive (rich golden bronze) -Luminizer in The Shining Moment (golden champagne).

Feb Favourites

So this month we have our first Monthly Favorites Blog post !

1) TRESemmé Perfectly (un)done Wave Creation Sea Foam

                                                              I am obsessed with this ! I use it every single time I wash my hair, and the reason I am obsessed with this product is because it gives you wave and texture in your hair, but its not sticky or thick. It cuts down my styling time like crazy, I usually just let my hair air dry and I love how it looks, I can then come in with a curling wand and touch things up, it makes my hair styling life so much easier its unreal! On the tin it says for soft, defined waves, and its exactly what you get, your hair wont feel hard, or crunchy or sticky, your hair is still soft and its my new favorite hair product ! 10/10

2)Milani Brow Tint pen Natural taupe

This is one that I use daily, if I don’t want to sit and fuss with a pencil or a gel. I just sketch it on my brows and fill in the blanks and it looks incredibly natural. Its for more of a daytime look rather than evening, and it completely blends with your natural colour and gives it an effortless look. Ive been using it a while now, and I couldn’t praise it any higher !

3)BOBBI BROWN Foundation Stick, Warm Honey 5.5

Love love love this product. Its slightly dewy,so if you have dry skin then this would suit you more. The coverage is amazing, it has more of a medium to full coverage, but you can also build on top of it,so I can use it in areas such as under my eyes to conceal it more, or if I want to conceal blemishes or other areas. I use a buffing brush by Real Techniques to give it an airbrushed finish.

4)Gucci Guilty for Women

I got this amazing fragrance for Christmas, but I’ve only just got around to wearing it, and it is amazing!It has a warm yet striking oriental floral with hedonism at its heart, it consists of :

Top note: Mandarin, Pink pepper

Middle note: Lilac, geranium, peach

Base: Patchouli, amber

I personally find it to have an elegant fragrance, and its extremely feminine and you can wear it day or night. It is at the higher end of the price bracket , but its worth the money. You don’t need to use a lot of the product, therefore it lasts for ages !

5) The Walking Dead

Now I know this isnt a beauty or fashion product, but I just get enough of this show ! I always heard about this show but wasn’t sure if it was my thing, so early last year I decided to try it, not knowing that this would soon consume my life ! I mean I binge watched this like crazy, im a sucker for zombie films or shows anyway, and if that wasn’t enough the captivating story draws you in and I couldn’t not, not mention Mr NORMAN REEDUS !! Mr Darrell Dixon, damn , the rugged bad boy, with a troubled past, a soft center , but a hard exterior I just want to crack ! But now we’re on season 5 wow, I have waited a long time for this. For me its started of pretty slow, not going anywhere etc, but now they’re in Alexandria, and I do not trust any one living there, there is something fishy going on, and my man Darrell knows it !

Would love to know if you’ve tried these products and what you thought !
