Discover The Best Camouflage Makeup Around: Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Maximum Cover

Hey Lovelies!

I was recently given Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Maximum Cover Camouflage Makeup for Face and Body to try. This concealer makeup provides the ultimate coverage. Literally transforming the look of my skin, it allows me to wear pretty much whatever summer clothes I choose without feeling self-conscious at all (well, to a point anyway). Discover why Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Maximum Cover is the best camouflage makeup around.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Maximum Cover Camouflage Makeup for Face and Body SPF15, £33.50 (30ml), www.esteelauder.com

Okay, here’s the deal: should you have acne scars, age spots, blemishes, bruises, pigmentation, sun spots, varicose veins, or basically any imperfection (let’ face it, who the HELL doesn’t?) that you wish to conceal, this is a must-have product. Gone are the days where you opt for tights or trousers and a day that is too el scorchio for words, for fear of displaying those imperfections. Thank you, Estee Lauder – you are a true hero brand!

For Body:

This liquid formula works incredibly well on the body. Making fast work of hiding away all imperfections, the product can even be used post-surgery. It offers a natural-looking matte finish that is both water-proof and will last all day without the worry of streaking. One point I should make is DO NOT apply this without a blender / blending brush. For this I chose my fave blending tool ever – Iconic London’s Blender. Do not make the mistake of thinking it will be fine without one – a blending tool is vital!

For Face:

Available in 14 different shades, this makeup is a true colour matching gem. I opted for the shade, Dawn. The liquid cover blends in seamlessly and achieves flawless results you will love. My skin is quite dry, and I have enlarged pores. Should anyone else suffer a similar fate, my advice is to thoroughly moisturise with a hydrating formula pre-application, also adding a primer. Additionally, you should be applying the product to your face with your blender too. Failure to follow those steps will result in a shabby-looking finish that looks worse (i.e cakey or exaggerated pores) rather than better. Also, you may not notice this until you step outside (and happen to have a pocket mirror with you)!

Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Maximum Cover contains aloe leaf to nourish and sooth, soybean oil (to neutralise free radicals) and vitamin E to further protect.

In summary, Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Maximum Cover is awesome!

Basically, bakuchiol provides the skin with boosted collagen levels, added elasticity and the reduction of lines and wrinkles. All of this can be achieved without even a hint of flaky skin. Sold yet? I know I am.

Never Use These Skincare Ingredients Together

Hey Lovelies!

#Never Use These Skincare Ingredients Together

No matter what the skincare issue, there is guaranteed to be a product to assist you. AHAs /BHAs work on cell turnover; hyaluronic acid will plump up your skin, surging it with moisture; vitamin E aids in repairing, and retinol deals with those intrusive fine lines nobody likes. However, it is imperative to remember not to just slap on all of these together and think, “job done.” Mixing certain ingredients can deeply damage the skin, making it worse rather than better.

It is important to devise a signature skincare routine especially for your skin type and concerns. This may take a little time – but not doing it would be as crazy as buying all the ingredients for a 3 course luxury meal, grabbing a pot and throwing the squid in with the chocolate sauce, adding every other ingredient while you’re at it, and then expecting it to taste heavenly! Check out the following concoctions that should always remain a no-go union.

Vitamin A (Retinol) And Vitamin C

The general rule of thumb is to apply retinol at night (as it can increase sun-sensitivity) and keep your vitamin C for the day. Vitamin C is an essential part of anyone’s skincare routine as it offers immense antioxidant value, providing that necessary protection against free radical damage. However, used in unison these can instigate dryness, redness and sensitive skin. An amazing vitamin C serum is SkinCeuticals Serum 10 (£80), www.lookfantastic.com

Retinol And AHA /BHA

When it comes to tackling the dreaded acne, diminishing lines or dealing with pigmentation, retinol would be your hero product. Additionally, AHAs /BHAs make fantastic exfoliators and cell regenerators; thus, should be a part of everyone skincare. But take note: applying these two warriors together is like initiating a fight club on your face. Expect at the very least some irritation and at worst, serious aggression and damaged skin. I love Esthederm’s Intensive Retinol Serum, (£49), www.lookfantastic.com

Vitamin C With AHA/BHAs

This will quite simply, put a car-bosh on your pH balance, causing complete ineffectiveness of what you are applying. As pointless as spending 10 minutes locating Corrie on catch-up, pressing play and then leaving the house. I’m loving Paula’s Choice Resist Anti-Aging 10% AHA Exfoliant, (£34), www.paulaschoice.co.uk

AHAs and BHAs

Basically, acid superseded by more acid – bad idea

Most dermatologists, beauty editors and experts will tell you that AHAs/BHAs, Vitamin C, E, Retinol and Sunscreen are all key ingredients. You can use sunscreen alongside vitamin C and E, no sweat.  But, as for the rest – take the above advice. Your skin will thank you for it.

Have an awesome weekend people xx

Solve Your Skincare Woes With These Amazing Products

Hey Lovelies!

Solve your skincare woes with these amazing products and get summer dress-ready.

Yes, we are all different – but there are some things we all have in common – skincare issues. At some point or another we all will experience the following concerns. Luckily the beauty industry has our back. Check out these amazing products guaranteed to eradicate those skincare woes for good.

1.Problem: Pink Arm Bumps (Official Term, Keratosis Pilaris).

Solution: First Aid Beauty KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub 10% AHA, $26, www.firstaidbeauty.com

What the HELL are these unforgiving spot-like bumps that seem to have taken permanent residence on my arms? Otherwise known as keratosis pilaris, this unsightly and rather annoying condition is caused simply by a build-up of protein (keratin). Those with dry skin tend to be more susceptible (another reason for reaching for that glass of water). Although you can never fully rid yourself of them, you can go a long way to alleviating the situation. Check out the First Aid Beauty KP Bump Eraser. Formulated with glycolic and lactic acids, with some fragments of pumice stone thrown in, this new product gently yet effectively deals with pores, loosens and removes the problematic top layer of skin; thus, revealing smoother and bump-free arms in time for summer.

 

  1. Problem: Dehydrated/Dry Skin

Solution: Institut Esthederm Intensive Hyaluronic Acid Serim £49.50 (30ml), www.facethefuture.co.uk

Should you suffer from severely dehydrated or dry skin you are probably a tad concerned about the heatwave forecasted for these coming weeks. Fear not friends, for Esthederm’s Intensive Hyaluronic Acid Serum will literally work big miracles. I was given this serum to review some time ago and I have never looked back. Formulated with 3 different types of hyaluronic acid and cellular water, this serum repairs the skin’s hydrolipidic film. It also replaces optimal moisture in the layers of skin, thus fully rehydrating even the driest of skin. Think oasis in a desert. The result is not only healthy-looking hydrated skin, but also a firmer, smoother and much rejuvenated complexion you will adore.

3.Problem: Spider Veins:

Solution: SkinCeuticals Epidermal Repair, £59.95,

www.radianceskincare.co.uk

Home Remedy: Apple Cider Vinegar and Vitamin C Products

Okay, when I first noticed (in horror) this red thng on my leg and realised it wasn’t a pen mark that wouldn’t rub off I totally freaked out. Apparently twice as many women than men are affected (obviously) and they can be caused by standing for long periods (such is a woman’s life)), water retention and blood problems, which leads to weakened veins. Hey presto, spider legs. Discovering that the treatment is generally medical or surgical – and yep, you guessed it, is mind-blowingly expensive too. However, all is not lost.

One of my fave skincare brands, SkinCeuticals provide an aid for such dreaded woes. Should you discover your skin has been compromised, tackle it with their awesome formula that combines both beta glutin and centella asiatica. These ingredients work in unison to trigger the repair of the skin’s barrier, so it can go right ahead healing, protecting and making you feel amazing!

Alternatively, apple cider vinegar has been shown to greatly improve this concern. The natural cleanser will improve circulation helping to prevent further damage.

Furthermore, any vitamin C serums (or even some chopped parsley in essential oils), when applied will give your collagen production a super-boost, offer exceptional antioxidant benefits and greatly support cell repair.

4.Problem: Pigmentation

Solution: Neostrata Enlighten Pigment Controller, £49.95, www.facethefuture.co.uk

I tested this product (with some reservation) some time ago and I can say whole heartedly, that the treatment delivers amazing results. You can actually see it working within minutes of application. For this I will use my phrase I keep for products that continually astound me (of which several well-known magazines are also now coining) THIS PRODUCT IS MAGIC IN A BOTTLE!

Containing key ingredients proven to achieve effective results, including:

Neoglucosamine

Retinol

Skin Brightening Plant Extracts

Vitamin C

Turmeric Sourced Antioxidant

This product both addresses the cause of uneven pigmentation whilst treating the discoloration. Expect a seriously gorgeous and luminous complexion, all ready for summer.
