Highlighting Tips

Types of products to highlight with-


Liquids: Liquids are the most common, they blend into the skin very easily and look the most natural. Liquid highlighters are normally blended using the fingers.

Creams: are also very popular and create a natural look and blend into the skin nicely, although not quite as easily blended as Liquids. Also applied using your fingers.

Powders: Powders are good for oilier skin types, if you have dry skin I wouldn’t recommend using a powder highlight as it can enhance the dry area. Some products included a shimmer Bronzer also so you have two for the price of one ☺️best applied with a small powder brush.

Areas to Highlight-

Cupids bow
Under the brow bone
The top of the cheekbones
Bridge of the nose

Natio Clever Stick 


The Clever stick comes in three shades Light, Natural and Beige. This product can be used as a foundation or a concealer. The product is very creamy but blends very nicely. It has a light scent and offers a medium to heavy coverage. I found when using a sponge it was a lot easier to apply, I then set with powder. It looked lovely on my skin and stayed put for a reasonable amount of time. I think this product would be perfect for dry skin as the creamy texture would blend nicely into the skin. The only thing I would say is they really need to make more shades to cater for all skin tones. Other than that I think it’s a great product for the price. 

Can be purchased from Tesco’s for £11.60.

Skin Care before applying Makeup

A good skin care routine is key to keeping your face in good condition and creates the perfect base for applying makeup.

Here’s my tips for basic skin care-

Cleanse and Tone your face every day and night.

Apply a day moisturiser and eye cream every morning.

Apply a night moisturiser and night eye cream every night.

Exfoliate 2-3 times a week.

Use a face mask 1-2 times a week.


Using this routine is giving your skin every chance to look it’s best!

Avon Color Trend Lipstick Review

I purchased two colours from the Avon Color Trend lipsticks collection. The Color Trend range has a great choice of colours, leaves a slight gloss and is surprisingly well pigmented. The cute packaging and love heart design on the lipsticks makes it fun and girly. 

The colours I purchased from left to right of the swatches are:

Loveable- Dark Rosey Pink
Amethyst- Deep Plum with a touch of Pink

Purchase from Avon for £3.75

Bronzer

When applying Bronzer it’s important not to apply it to the whole of your face. You want the Bronzer to be applied to the natural places the sun would hit. The best way to apply is with a brush, I like to use a matte Bronzer. You need to create the number 3 on both sides of your face. Start at the top of your forehead, brush it along your cheeks and then sweep it underneath your jawline all the way to your chin. Also apply the Bronzer to your neck. If your chest and shoulders are exposed apply a little there too a shimmer Bronzer works perfectly on the body.

I hope this Bronzer tip helps 😊
