My favourite make up products of 2018

Beauty

This post could be full of loads of make up items, but I have been really strict and just chosen products which have been my ultimate ‘go to products’ of last year, the products which I come into 2019 still reaching for.

First up we have the ultimate red lip, this is YSL 201. This is my all time favourite shade to wear, it works for both summer and winter and gives the ultimate ‘made up’ look.

Next is the best eye shadow palette ever created, Urban Decay Naked Heat! I have not stopped using it, every where I go the palette goes too, it’s been on countless holidays and airplanes. The palette contains my absolute favourite shades, the warm tones work for me all year round and I just could not be more in love with a palette if I tried.

Last year was really the year of investing my skincare, one company who’s products has changed the skincare and make up game for me is Dermalogica. I am one of their Skinfluencers, so I was lucky enough to be sent a lovely package of products back the summer which contained the Skin Perfect primer. This is such an amazing primer, it is SPF 15 and creates a really great base for the best of your make up as well as making it last a long time.

Glossier Haloscope in Quartz is my most use highlighter, this is a cream formula so it instantly creates a gorgeous natural glow.

My absolute favourite cream bronzer from Tanya Burr Cosmetics has just been discontinued and I have just ran out it, I have gone through so many of these as I love it so much, it was the perfect shade for me.

I havn’t really been a big CC Cream fan, that was until I was sent one from Erborian. This one creates a really nice natural looking base for when you don’t want to wear a heavy foundation.

My go to blush of the summer was definitely Benefit Galifornia, I literally love using this just for the smell, I could sit and sniff it all day long!

And lastly, two palettes that are both equally as good as each other are the Urban Decay Naked Flushed palette and the Hour Glass Ambient Lighting Edit palette. These are both really good versatile palettes perfect for all year round.

Fall Makeup Routine 

Beauty

Today’s post is all about my fall makeup routine that I have been doing for the past couple of weeks. 

My fall makeup routine starts off with my favourite primer from The Ordinary, I just love the way this feels on my skin and how long it makes my make up last! For my foundation I have gone a shade lighter so I’m now in the shade NC15 which is a perfect match. I then conceal under my eyes using the Rimmel Wale Me Up Concealer. This is brightening and so it’s perfect for those dull autumn days. And then to add a bit of colour into my face and some shape I use the cream bronzer from Seventeen. I use this on my forehead and on my cheeks. 

On my cheeks I have been using Nars Laguna Bronzer which adds the slightest bit of shimmer to brighten your face up followed by the blush Dolce Vita which is a deeper toned blush perfect for autumn days. Finally on my cheeks I have been using a dusting of the Peonies Please from Tanya Burr Cosmetics. This is super pigmented and so you only need one swipe along your cheek bones. 

On my eye lashes I have been using Loreal Lash Superstar which is a double ended Mascara so you can build up loads of volume and length. 

As for the eyes, I wanted something really autumnal and bold so I picked the red shimmer shade from the MUA Cosmetics palette. It’s really pigmented, long lasting and looks great on! I then used a Colour Pop shadow in the shade Cornelius in the outer corner to blend it all together. 

And for my brows I have been loving using the powder from the Elf Brow kit, it’s the perfect shade for me (medium) and it’s really easy to work with to create natural look brows. Then of course I set using Loreal Brow Plumper. 

Finally, lips! To add a little bit of colour I like to use the Blackberry Coulis lip balm from Tanya Burr Cosmetics. And then to add even more colour the shade Amourous by Mac is a great shade for autumn! 

What’s your go to make up for autumn?

Make Up I’m Currently Loving

Beauty

Today is all about the make up I have been loving recently! 

For primer I have been obsessively using the Nivea Postshave Balm whilst I am at home (as it’s so heavy it’s not great for travelling). I really love how this is a skincare product but double acts as a primer, on an everyday basis this is the only primer which actually keeps my make up in tip top condition. On top of the primer one of my favourite foundations is MAC Studio Fix Fluid, when I first bought this I didn’t think the shade was for me, but now it’s summer it’s the perfect shade. I love how full coverage this is yet it doesn’t get cakey. But as it’s the summer I have been tanning and my little saviour has been The Body Shop foundation drops which make your foundation darker. These have been great, because it has meant I don’t need my favourite foundation in a variety of shades. Next is my favourite cream bronzer, as you can see this one from Seventeen is well loved as I have used it daily for the past couple of months! This creates a really nice natural sunkissed effect when I apply it to my forehead. On the days where I have been having skin nightmares, the Rimmel Lasting Finish Concealer comes into play. This is a really thick creamy Concealer that I apple before my foundation so I can maximise the results!

On my cheeks I have been loving using Benefit Galifornia as it’s the perfect coral pink for the summer and looks really natural (plus it smells amazing!). For my bronzer I have been using Soap & Glory Solar Power as this is a cool toned bronzer which isn’t too over powering and looks really natural. And lastly on my cheeks my go to highlighter at the moment, the shade Warm Bronze from Tanya Burr Cosmetics! This is the perfect bronze shimmer for when you want that sunkissed tanned look! 

For mascara I have been loving two and these are my most recent purchases, the double ended Loreal Superstar creates really thick defined black lashes and the Maybelline Collossal creates lots of volume. I do sometimes wear these two together as the Maybelline one can thin out any clumps of the Loreal one. I recently became obsessed with the Tanya Burr Contour Stick in the shade medium/dark, this is now my back up for when I run out of the Seventeen Bronzer as it creates the same effect. For highlighters I have been loving two mini samples from Benefit, I have been wearing them near enough daily for the past two months. Benefit High Beam and Watts Up. High beam is definelty a lot more pigmented and intense and really adds a little sometimhing extra to your make up. For concealer under my eyes I have been using the Bourjois Radiance Reveal, this is super hydrating and brightening and looks ever better when you have a tan! And my second favourite primer is Benefit Porefessional, this is my go to when I’m travelling as it’s a lot smaller and easier to pack. This also works really well the Studio Fix foundation from MAC. And last but not least, YSL Rouge Couture 201 lipstick, this shade just screams summer to me! It’s a beautiful red Matte perfect for long summer nights and days out in the sun! 

So there you have it, my favourite makeup at the moment! What are you favourites for the summer?

Summer Capsule Make Up 

Beauty

So I’ve been seeing a lot of blog posts and videos about capsule wardrobes, but one that really stood out it me was a video by The Anna Edit and her Capsule Make Up picks. So I have decided to do a blog post dedicated to my capsule make up picks every season! And first up are my summer picks. These are pretty much my go to staples that I have been obsessed with over the summer months.

For my base I have been loving Benefit Porefessional Primer, that being said, I save it for special occasions so it’s not an everyday primer for me. For my foundation I have the same rule, only on special occasions and days when I need my make up to stay on for hours. 

For concealer I have been loving the Bourjois Radiance Reveal as it’s really creamy and high coverage but it’s still light weight and doesn’t cake up and look thick. 

To add some shape to my face I have been loving the Tanya Burr Cosmetics Contour Stick in medium/dark. This gives me the perfect tanned looking forehead.

My go to bronzer/contour product at the minute is Hoola by Benefit, this is the perfect shade for me right now with a tan. I’m not sure if this is going to work all year round, so I’ll have to wait to find out. 

The Hour Glass Ambient Lighting Edit palette is perfect for travelling as it contains a setting powder, blusher, bronzer and highlight which is really convenient and compact. 

On my brows I like to use a pomade from Anastasia Beverly Hills as this gives a really natural brow look. 

As for mascara I have been wanting really defined black lashes so using the Loreal Superstar mascara helps do this, as it’s double ended it builds up volume and really defines the lashes. 

My go to concealer for covering up pesky spots is Rimmel Lasting Finish, this is a really thick creamy high covereahe formula, I use this under my foundation to get rid of most the redness and then again on top of need. 

Rimmel Stay Matte, this is my go to powder, he only one I have ever used. It really does keep your make up looking matte and in place all day long, plus it’s only £3.99! 

Picking an eyeshadow palette was hard, but I decided to go for one of my newer ones. The Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar by Too Faced. All the shades in here are wearable and work really well together so it’s easy to create multiple looks. 

As for lips, how could the majority not be a Red of some sort! 

On the left is Bear Hug by Tanya Burr Cosmetics, this is a matte nude, it looks really good with a tan and is a really nice subtle shade for when you don’t want a bold in your face shade. 

Next is another Tanya Burr Cosmetics shade this time in a gorgeous bold orange, Wild Safari. This again is matte, and is just so lovely on a hot summers day! 

The next is a liquid lipstick from Mac in the shade Fashion Legacy, this is my most worn lipstick of the summer as it’s long lasting so I don’t have to top it up all the time or worry about it ending up all over my face. 

And lastly is my little YSL beauty in the shade 201,  this is a beautiful matte red perfect for the summer. 

So there is my capsule make up collection, 15 items which are staples. Can you pick just 15 items out of your collection to create a capsule collection?

City Break Make Up Bag

Beauty

Today I am sharing what is in my make up bag for my city break to Milan! I actually go tomorrow, which is crazy! I have wanted to visit the cathedral for the longest time and now I get too! If you wanna see photos check out my Instagram @toriiitoriii I also insta story excessively! 

For a base I have chosen my trusty Benefit Porefessional, this is a great long lasting primer which I know helps my make up last all day. As for a foundation I have chosen MAC Studio Fix Fluid, although this is kind of heavy and big it’s a must! I will sacrifice washing my hair in order to have good foundation for 2 days! But seriously, this is such a good foundation! To conceal under my eyes I am taking Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer which really hydrating and brightening. To add some extra colour to my face I’m going to be using the Tanya Burr Contour Stick in the shade medium/dark, I use this as a cream bronzer along my forehead. And then just incase, I’m taking the Rimmel Lasting Finish Concealer just incase any spots pop up while I’m away! 

For mascara I like to make sure my lashes are bold and stand out as I never wear eye liner, the best mascara I have found is the Superstar double ended mascara from Loreal. This creates long thick volumous lashes! And for my eye shadow I’m going to be keeping it fairly simple, I always over pack when it comes to eyes shadows so for Milan I am taking the Tanya Burr Cosmetics palette in Birthday suit and a Colour Pop shadow in the shade Game Face which is a really nice metallic coppery shade. For my brows I’m going to rely on my trusty Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow as I’ve been neglecting it recently and then the Loreal Brow Plumper to set them. 

To set my foundation and Concealer I will be relying on the Rimmel Stay Matte which is my number 1 favourite! To bronze I will be using Hoola Bronzer from Benefit as this is he perfect shade for me with a tan! As I have a tan I want a highlighter which will enhance it so I have picked Warm Bronze by Tanya Burr Cosmetics. For my blusher I will be using Benefit Galifornia which is a beautiful coral shade (and it smells amazing). And lastly for my lips, I’m going to keep it very simple and go for a red lip! MAC Fashion Legacy is a staple for me when I’m out and about as I know it’s long lasting and doesn’t budge. And Charlotte Tilburg Red Carpet Red just needs a little bit of love, it always ends up getting left behind so it’s coming to Milan! 

And there you have it! These are my staples for my trip, asking as I don’t end up cramming anything in last minute this could be the lightest I’ve travelled!

Lazy Day Morning Routine

Beauty

Here is a lazy day get ready with me which is kind of like a morning routine. 


The first thing I do when I wake up is head to the bathroom with my cute little Zoella cup and full it up with water. Over the past few weeks I have been trying to drink a whole cup before I have any breakfast to keep me extra hydrated to see if it helps my skin. 

As today was a miserable day I decided to light a little Primark candle, these are my favourites as there only £1 yet really cute! And I can actually smell it burning away from my bed. 

On days when I’m doing nothing or have a long time to get ready I like to do a quick skincare routine to refresh my skin. 

I have been using the Garnier Rose Water Cleanser to just remove any dirt built up over the night followed by the Boots Botanics All Bright Toner to brighten my skin. 

And then to finish I go in with a brightening serum followed by the Clinique Moisturising Gel to hydrate and get my skin ready for the day. 

Now onto the important bit, breakfast! Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day as I love a big bowl of rice crispies. I also love a coffee in the morning, normally in the summer I would turn it into an ice coffee but as it’s not a very nice day it’s just a hot latte. I eat my breakfast whilst watching YouTube catching up on my subscriptions. And gradually drink my coffee while I’m getting ready wsnits way to hot to drink it straight away.


And now, make up time! As I am actually not going anywhere I wanted to test out products which I don’t usually reach for to see if they work for my skin.

Primer Rimmel Fix & Perfect 

Foundation Maybelline Fit Me 

Concealer MUA Cover & Conceal 

Mascara Illamasqua 

Eye Shadow Makeup Revolution Fortune Favours the Brave 

Cream Bronze Seventeen 


Brows Benefit Browzing & Gimme Brow

Bronzer Sephora Caledonia 

Blush Nars Orgasm 

Highlighter MAC Soft & Gentle 

Lip Liner Loreal Universal Liner 

Lipstick Barry M Pose


Before I get dressed I like to do the last minute bits, for my hair I like to douse it in dry shampoo. My favourite dry shampoo is from the fresh one from Co Lab, this is also great because if your in a rush you don’t need to worry about the white marks left in your hair, because there isn’t! I then slather on some body lotion to try and maintain the the little tan I do have and then spritz my body in a perfume.

And there you have it my lazy day morning routine for when I’m really not doing anything exciting at all!

Summer Holiday Make Up Routine 

Beauty

Hey! So I’ve just got back from my nightmare holiday (there will be a blogpost going up about it, but I feel like I need hours to sit down and write it!). While I was away I got into a really good routine with my make up and pretty much stuck to the same products everyday as I wanted a really glowy bronzed look. So here is what I used and what I came up with…


To prime my skin I used Benefit Porefessional which I am really loving at the moment! For my foundation I used Mac Studio Fix Fluid which is absolutly perfect for hot climates and if you want a long lasting base. But as I was tanning I needed to darken my foundation daily so it matched, in order to do this I used the foundation drops from The Body Shop. These were perfect for adding a little extra colour each day and it was really easy to add the right amount. 

Although my base was getting darker I decided I would keep my under eye concealer really bright so I used the lightest shade of the Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer. This was super hydrating and didn’t dry out my under eye area. I’ve actually forgotten to add the Rimmel Stay Matte powder in the photo, but I used that everyday to set everything in place. 

To add some colour and definition into my face I used Benefit Hoola Bronzer to bronze on my forehead and cheek bones and under my jaw. I then used Benefit Galifornia for blusher, this was the perfect shade for the summer as it’s a really pretty coral shade (and it smells amazing!). 

And lastly to add that extra glow, I used a new highlighter from Tanya Burr Cosmetics in the shade Warm Bronze. I really hesitant at first because I didn’t think I would ever be able to wear it, but with a tan it looked amazing! 


I took two eye shadows with me but pretty much ended up only using Burning Embers from MUA Cosmetics. This had the perfect warm shades for a summers evening, and I could create a different look every night if I wanted. 

On my lashes I used the Loreal False Lash Superstar which is a double ended mascara perfect for building up bold long defined lashes. 

And finally on my brows I have been loving this powder from Freedom, I have been mixing the light and dark shade and this gives a much more natural effect than a pomade. And then to set my brows I used Loreal Brow Plumper in blonde. 

Ofcourse I applied a lipstick every night, but it was a different one every night as I took enough for one per day. Although I’m heartbroken as on the last night I lost Candy K somewhere around the hotel! 

So here are a few selfies from the week! (Excuse the wet hair & flower crown)

Let me know what your go to make up products are on holiday.

July Favourites 

Beauty

How is August already, common it’s not exactly hot and sunny, it feels more like October! This weather needs to hurry up and pull its self together and stop with the rain! Anyway, here are my favourites for the month of July! 

COLAB Dry Shampoo Dry shampoo is a daily essential for me, I just love the look of mine greasy shiny hair especially in my roots plus how good does it smell! I was lucky enough to be sent this really cute mermaid one whic I’m obsessed with, it won’t be long till I’ve run out of this one! 

Nuxe Multi Purpose Oil I bet you can barely even notice this oil asnita so small, but I received it in a subscription box ages and decided to take it on holiday with me and I’m so thankful I did! This worked great at taming and smoothing the ends of my hair out, I still have a tiny bit left which I’m making last until my full size one arrives! Yes, I loved it that much I’ve just bought a whole bottle of it! 

Layering Lab Paradise Body Spray This is the cutest little bottle of body spray from Superdrug, it was only £2.99 and the idea is that you mix it with other scents they have to create your own unique smell. I love the Paradise one as it screams summer, plus it’s small enough to be able to fit in your handbag and carry around on the go with you! 

Passport Holder I purchased this adorable passport holder from Amazon earlier this year as I thought it was a great way to store my passport while travelling! You can get the cover  Here for less than £6! 

Asda sweets When I go on holiday I like to take an abundance of snacks with me just incase, and I can safely say they came in handy last week when I was stuck on an airplane for 10 hours waiting to land! The sweets which became my favourite were little unicorns! The best part is these are in the offer of 5 for £1! 

Now onto to the fun bit, make up! If you’ve read my Summer Holiday Makeup Routine then you will know these make up products were my staples while away! 

MAC Studio Fix fluid This is perfect for hot climates and if you want long lasting make up that still looks good after a day of sight seeing! 

The Body Shop Foundation Drops This little bottle is a lifesaver, for anyone who tans and worries that your face won’t match your body these work a treat! Just add a few drops to your foundation and mix them up to create your own unique shade! 

Benefit Porefessional Primer Once again, another summer staple for long lasting make up that looks great and stays in place all day! 

Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer This was my little gem whilst on holiday, I used this in a triangle shape under my eyes to add extra brightness and because of the contrast between the lightness of the concealer and darkness of my foundation it looks perfect! 

Tanya Burr Cosmetics Body Illuminator This is a highlighting body cream, it adds a really subtle shimmer to skin and helps enhance your natural tan! 

Charging Case This charging case is a must for anyone who is on their phone 24/7 and has a panick  about it dying halfway through a day especially when your wanting to take photos. This phone was was under £10 and once it’s fully charged it can charge your phone twice, the only downside is that it’s quite heavy! You can get the same one Here

Hope you enjoyed reading! I’m trying to get 3 blogposts up a week so stay tuned for more!

New In: skincare & makeup 

Beauty

Hello, today I’m going to sharing some of the new products I’ve picked up! 

Make Up 

I have to admit over the past couple of months I did splurge a little bit on make up, I am the type of person who will pretty much only buy drugstore products and then treat myself once a year to some higher end products, so I guess this was it. I have been after Benefit Hoola Bronzer for the longest time, and since my Laguna Bronzer from Nars is running very low I thought it would be the perfect time to purchase it. A few hours after placing the Hoola order I decided to jump on the bandwagon and get Benefit Galifornia blush. Everything about this blush made me want it, the name, the packaging and omg the smell! If you havnt smelt it then you need to, I make everyone smell it when I’m doing my make up! I then ended up picking a third Benefit product in the form of their Primer, I had been using a sample of this and fell in love so once again it was a must. But I do only save this for special occasions. 

As I was going on holiday and new I would need darker foundation, instead of taking 7 different foundations with me I decided to buy the foundation drops from The Body Shop. Just by adding a couple of drops to your foundation helps match your face to the rest of your body. These were a complete saviour on holiday! 

And finally the newest purchase, the Tanya Burr Cosmetics Contour Stick in medium/dark. I picked this up because I love to apply a cream contour/Bronzer to my forehead pretty much all year round. The current one I am using is running out and the brand is having a problem with creating more stock so I don’t think I’ll ever get ahold of it again. 

Hair 

The lovely COLAB hair team saw how much I was obsessed with their dry shampoos they sent me two more! And this could not have been more perfectly timed as I was about to run out of my other one! COLAB dry shampoos are my actual favourites at the minute, just look at the packaging! The mermaid one is ofcourse my favourite! 

Skincare 

Now onto the biggest section of ‘where has my money gone this month’, skincare. I picked up a new sheet mask from Garnier because well, I’m kinda addicted to them and plus I just want to try everything from Garnier! I then decided this year would be the year I got a tanned face on holiday, so I purchased the Bondi Sands gradual tan for my face. I have to say, I didn’t use this that much on holiday and actually managed to get a natural tan in the end but I have it now for when I fade (and by the look of this British summer, it won’t be long). While I was shopping on Superdrug sat around by the pool on holiday I came across a little pack of the Loreal Clay Masks for only £3.50 instead of £7. The clay masks are some of my favourites so I though these little travel sized ones would be perfect! 

And lastly, The Ordinary! My serums are gradually expanding and taking over a drawer of their own due to this brand. Everything is so affordable but so good for your skin! I seem to be placing an order every month, which I don’t mind as it’s a cheap order and they seem to be helping my skin out so much! I will do a separate blogpost about my collection very soon! 

What’s new to your collection?

Top 10 Summer Holiday Essentials / Makeup 

Beauty

Welcome back, today I am going to be sharing my top ten summer holiday make up essentials for going away this summer. 

Primer 

Being in a hot climate means you really to want your make up to last for the amount of time you need it too. On a general pool day on holiday I won’t wear make up, but if I’m going on a little trip or getting ready for dinner I want to apply some make up. So my first essential is a primer which lasts and that you can trust to keep your makeup lookin good. Benefit Porefessional is my chosen one for my holiday and I know that it will give me long lasting make up in the heat.

Foundation 

I really want to find a BB or CC cream to take with me on holiday this year but I just never got around to it so I’m taking a foundation which may seem a little excessive but I know that it works for me. Mac Stufio Fix is my go to at the minute and I know that it will last all day and look good.  

Foundation Drops 

If your anything like me then you may have in the past, taken a multitude of different shades of foundations to match you along your tanning journey. However this year I have decided to give the foundation drop a go, these are from The Bodyshop. I actually havn’t had a chance to try these out yet so I will put them to use while I’m away. 

Blush 

The Galifnornia Blush from Benefit is very recent purchase and I love it! It’s the perfect coral pink shade for the summer and it smells heavenly! This is perfect for adding a pop of colour to your cheeks. 

Highlighter 

Highlighter is my jam, there’s not a day that goes by when I don’t highlight. The newest highlight in my collection is from Tanya Burr Cosmetics and is the perfect champagne gold colour to give a perfect sunny glow. 


Eye shadow 

Even though most people would choose to keep there make up pretty simple in the heat, I still like to do everything that I would do at home. So I tend to pick an eye shadow palette that has a huge variety of shades and can create a different look each night. I also think it’s great to have bolder colours that you wouldn’t necessarily use at home, yet on holiday you want to be braver with your make up choices. This palette is called Burning Embers from MUA Cosmetics and is a bargain at only £8. 

Bronzer 

Bronzer is a great way of darkening up your face to match the rest of your body when you don’t tan your face. It also helps add more depth and shade to your face to give yourself a sun kissed look. My go to this summer has to be Benefit Hoola bronzer as it is the perfect shade and is matte so it looks a little bit more natural rather than a shimmery. 

Setting Powder 

I do not go anywhere without setting my powder, my go to all year round is Rimmel Stay Matte. I use this to set my make up in the morning and it keeps it looking matte throughout the day but still letting my skin glow through. 

Lipstick 

Obviously a must, a bright lipstick which looks great with a tan and makes a bold statement. This is also a great way of looking more out together without doing all your make up. My chosen one is Wild Safari by Tanya Burr Cosmetics. 

Liquid Lipstick 

If I am put all day and don’t want to worry about whether or not my lipstick is in the right place I will wear a liquid lipstick. Fashion Legacy from MAC is the perfect red and last for hours, even when eating! 

So there you have it, my top ten in my make up bag! Keep an eye out for a post on what’s in my make up bag.

Everyday make up for Iceland // MOTD 

Beauty

Today I am going to be sharing the make up look I chose to create everyday while I was on holiday in Iceland. As I could only take a small amount of make up I had to use the same products everyday I was there. 


I chose to try out a primer which I never use because I keep in with my travel make up because it’s a sample size so finally I had a chance to use Porefessional by Benefit. This actually worked great and my make up still looked just as good after a day out in the rain and wind. For foundation I also tried out the Barry M Flawless Matte Finish and had to hope that I would be good for my skin, and it was. To conceal under my eyes and on a huge spot I got I while I was there I used Collection Lasting Perfection Concealor. 


For highlighter I used a mini version of Benefit Watts Up which I have fallen in love with and this has made it onto my wish list for a full size version. To set under my eyes I used the Natural Translucent Powder and filled my brows in with MUA LUXE Power Brow. 


To set my brows I used another mini from Benefit, Brow Zings. I then set the rest of my face with Rimmel Stay Matte Powder. For eyeshadow I used the top right hand shimmery colour on my lids and the bottom left brown shade on my outer corner from the Tarte Amazonian Clay Eye Shadow Quad. 


I used the Nars Audacious mascara on my eye lashes as this adds volume and length. For bronzer I used Laguna by Nars and then Rockateur by Benefit as blush. 

Benefit Dew The Hoola // New Make Up Monday 

Beauty


Who doesn’t love a free bronzer, well by free I mean I had to spend £4 on a magazine which I didn’t even read to just get it. I picked this up at the airport and thought why not, start of the my holiday I may aswell treat myself. I never really seem to buy Benefit products at all, I have had a powder Hoola Bronzer but that was way before I started blogging. However I think I will add a few bits from Benefit on my Christmas list (too soon to start making a list?). 

I didn’t really get a chance to use this while on holiday as I had a tan and didn’t find this showed up enough but I’m hoping as my tan fades and I got back to my pale self I can use it. 

As for the packaging I think it’s super cute and really handy, obviously this is only a sample size but to be fair for the amount I will actually use it it will be perfect. Having quite a big make up collection means I never quite finish one product as I’m always rotating them out. 

It is such a pretty colour and seems like it is easy to blend and I’ll give a really natural look on your cheeks.
