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.

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!

Has anyone else tried this amazing product and what are your thoughts? Leave me a message in the comments below. Have a great week people!

6 Very Good Reasons For Wearing Sunscreen Every Day

Hey Lovelies!

Are you one of those people who rushes out to buy some sunscreen the moment the summer season commences? If so, it’s time to change. Your skin will thank you for it later on in life. Sunscreen provides that vital protection your skin needs throughout the year. Here are 6 reasons sunscreen should be a part of your daily skincare routine.

1.UV Rays

Many people believe (like I used to) that the sun is only harmful during summer months. So wrong! In fact, the sun’s rays are just as harmful in spring as they are in the middle of August.

2.Prohibits Skin Cancer

With 50% of all people set to encounter the C word (in some form or another) by 2020, there has never been a better reason to rush out and equip yourself with some SPF. There are a variety of skin cancers waiting to pounce – so don’t give them the chance.

3.Prevents Premature Skin Aging

Okay, so this is a puppy which reflects the opposite of aging. However, it’s too cute not to include and has wrinkly skin, so it kind of demonstrates my point. Think of sun cream as your secret weapon in the fight against those dreaded lines and wrinkles. Wearing it every day will stave off the years from mapping themselves across your face too soon.

4.Discoloration

If you want to avoid a face full of discoloration and dark spots (HELL, yeah) then sunscreen is imperative.

5.Blotchiness, Red Veins – No Thanks

The same can be said for preventing the onset of unwanted blotches that never seem to go, like – ever, and red veins that without the help of some expensive laser treatment will definitely never go. It’s far easier to slap a bit of sunscreen on your face.

6.Sun Burn

Granted, this is the UK – but miracles can happen. And with the population biting chunks out of the ozone layer like it’s a Michelin-starred chef’s signature chocolate desert, sun burn is ever-more likely.

In short people, wear your sunscreen. Like, every day people.

 

The Best New Beauty Products Of 2018

Hey Lovelies!

Happy Friday!

Since the beginning of 2018 we have seen some amazing new beauty product launches, designed to make our lives that bit better. Here is my round up of the best:

1.Bobbi Brown Skin Longwear Weightless Foundation, (SPF15) £31, www.bobbibrown.co.uk

For anyone looking for light and long-lasting coverage, this new foundation from the fabulous Bobbi Brown brand will be a sure hit. Basically, the Longwear Foundation feels totally weightless and blends in seamlessly, providing a matte finish that looks like you are wearing no makeup. I love this foundation!

2.Clarins SOS Primer, £26.50, www.clarins.co.uk

If like me, you suffer from dark spots, imperfections and redness, the SOS Primer will feel like a God Send. Packed with antioxidants to nurture and protect the skin, whilst providing targeted colour corrector to effectively deal with any skin concern, this SOS Primer is a must-have. The only problem is, should you need a colour corrector for more than one concern type, you may need more than one shade. There are 6 incredible shades available – bye, bye, wages!

3.Kiehls Powerful Strength-Line Reducing Concentrate, £49.50 (50ml), www.kiehls.co.uk

Amazing beauty brand Kiehls just gave one of their key serums a makeover. I didn’t think it could get much better, but the Concentrate is now packed with even more essential anti-aging and hydrating vitamin C and hyaluronic acid – 12.5% to be exact. Take that you pesky fine lines.

4.L’Oreal EverPure Deep Moisture Hair Sheet Mask, $3.99, www.amazon.com

This is L’Oreal’s first hair sheet mask and I am smitten! Designed to be a shower steam and deep moisture treatment, this product includes aloe blossom to offer intense hydration and nourishing love for your locks. The result is luscious and super shiny hair that feels totally weightless. #Hairhappiness! Buy from Amazon here

5.Nars Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation, £35, www.narscosmetics.co.uk

I am a huge fan of Nars products and given the fact that this foundation promises to stay put for up to 16 hours, and given the other fact that I ALWAYS have to reapply my product at least once during the day, I couldn’t wait to try. The new Nars Foundation is available in 33 shades and glides on to the skin with remarkable flawless results. I have fair skin so love this product in Oslo. The outcome is amazing looking skin that still looks like skin – and it lasts!

6.Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF40, £22.95, www.amazon.co.uk

I know I go on about this A LOT, but sunscreen is probably THE most important cream you should be applying to your skin. As it turns out we should be worrying about the infrared radiation and light from our tablets and phones as well as UVA and UVB rays. Yay! Thankfully, this new product will provide you with all the protection you need and better yet, it soaks in seamlessly and feels practically weightless, too.

7.Wunder2 Super-Stay Liquid Liner, £12.95, www.wunder2.co.ukMetallic White Gold Super-Stay Liner

It’s not just fondations that need reapplication – eyeliners, too, suffer the same fate. That’s where iconic brand Wunder2 comes in – their newly launched Super-Stay liners glide on effortlessly to enable precise application, thus creating a highly pigmented pop of beautiful colour that actually stays put! Available in 3 waterproof collections (Essential, Glitter and Metallic) these 24hour wear liners ensure you don’t need to check the mirror – even if you stay out all night! Buy here
