12 Days of Natsmas: Get ready with me – Christmas Party (10)

I did my face Wednesday night for my friend Christmas Party and thought youd like to know which products I used to achieve this look:

In order of application I used:

New Look – finishing spray – (I know you’re meant to use it at the end but I do it at the beginning aswell as I read an article from a pole dancer saying that’s what she does to make her makeup last aalllll night)

Seventeen Stay Time Long Wear Primer – It stinks but as long as you apply it quickly before it dries it should last

Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation – Its just a nice medium coverage foundation which amount wise has lasted a long time

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer – It does the job, great for red pigment but not so great for shielding spots and dark circles – concealer is a tricky one for me

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer – This is great for dark circles and does help with spots aswell.

Baby Powder – yes I used this as a baking powder – mostly to hide my dark circles even more – It’s a very tiring time of year!

Eyebrows – I always use a very old combination eye shadow for this because I haven’t found anything to be as good

Collection Sheer Loose Powder – This is meant to set your face – I’m not sure whether that is true but for some reason it does have the tendency to make you a bit orange. I still use it everyday anyway as it seems to make your face all one colour at least

MUA Pro-Base Eye Primer – Does the job very well actually and creates the perfect base for your eyes – minimal smudge

Eyeshadow – For this look I used a range of colours from both The Active Cosmetics Interchangeable eye pallet and W7’s “The Big Five”.

L’Oreal Super Liner – I used this just to finish off my eyes in order to add a bit or drama

Maybelline Lash Sensational – I used this instead of false lashes in the end and to be honest it gave the same effect while looking a whole lot more natural – this mascara is definitely one of my favourites.

Collection Highlight and Sculpt – I used this for my bronzer and highlighter as it’s a very subtle yet buildable highlight and I perfect sculpting bronzer.

MUA Lipstick _ I lost this colour that night and cannot remember the exact colour although when looking online I believe it is shade 1.

Complete the look with some final finishing spray and you’re all set to Rock around the Christmas Tree

All of these products are very affordable and sourced from high street shops which just shows you don’t have to spend a lot to get a lot.

Hope you enjoyed it, a video should be uploaded to the YouTube Channel soon of this if you want to see it in action



Superdrug Face mask Review

Please ignore the fact I have been A-WALL for nearly a month, I am a very busy person and I will not bother you with the reasons why, just know i am very sorry and embarrassed.

But today I though i would do a cheeky review of some products even though it isn’t NatsChats Tuesday. Today i will be reviewing some of the Superdrug face masks which are normally £1 each which i will say right now is an absolute bargain. I love Superdrug as i feel like I can always trust their products plus they often have many deals and sales on which means i am always picking up my old favourite and new experimental beauty bits.

The three Superdrug Face masks were:

  •  “Superdrug Cooling Cucumber Face Mask” ideal for Sensitive Skin
  • “Superdrug Dead sea purifying Face mask” ideal for Oily and Blemish Prone Skin
  • ” Superdrug Tropical Cocktail Peel – Off Mask” ideal for all skin types.

Up first is the Cooling Cucumber. It says in the description that it refreshes and cools skin which i must say is exactly correct. I only washed this one off about 10 minutes ago but my face is still cool. Its quite an odd sensation actually, it feels like I’ve got cold slime on my face (but obviously just feels like soft skin to the touch. One problem i did find however was the fact that it made the blackheads on my nose GREEN! That has washed off now but if you didn’t wash your face properly after I am afraid you may be walking round with a small resemblance to Shrek!

Next is the dead sea drama. Don’t be put off my the menacing name, the only slightly fishy ingredient in it is Dead Sea Salt. I didn’t know salt could die but I guess you learn something new everyday! It smells wonderful but it does say its meant to stop breakouts which I’m sad to say it hasn’t. I’m still getting spots in the usual places however i will say it helped the spots i already have go away.

And last but certainly not least we have our Tropical cocktail. i am a tad biased towards this one as I definitely prefer peel – Off masks as you can literally see the gunk leaving your face (grim I know). But yeah I really enjoyed using this one as it again smelt amazing (very summery) and appeared to fully clean out my pores. Obviously my pores did not stay clean for long but it was nice while it lasted.

My perfect face mask would be one that cleaned out your pores and them shrunk them up because mine are getting pretty chunky in some places! So if you know any masks like that please do let me know. I hope you enjoyed this little review and may I say again how much i highly recommend this brand of face masks. they do not test on animals and contain a lot of natural ingredients and so I’m nearly 100% sure they are all vegan and vegetarian friendly (at least most are)!

See you soon Chums!
