As you all know, I am currently on a Fitness Journey and for me, being healthy and happy within myself doesn’t just include fitness, it also includes Beauty so you could say I’m on a Beauty Journey as well. I am always buying beauty products because not only am I picky but I’m always looking for new things to enhance my looks.
Below you will find some beauty items that I’ve been using quite a lot in February heck, some I’ve been using even before February. Let’s start shall we?
Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge
As you can tell, I’ve been using this quite a lot. I’ve had this beauty blender for quite a while now but I never used it because truthfully, I never quite knew how to use it however I recently discovered the magic of it.
When it came to doing my foundation, I used to use foundation brush but it never gave me the coverage I needed but since I recently discovered using this, my foundation application has been flawless. It’s so easy to use. You can use it either damp or not. I choose not to. Applying foundation with it dry is honestly the best.
You can get it HERE or Ebay.
Mac Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder
I’ve been using this beauty for months now but it’s definitely something I can’t do without. It’s perfect for setting my under-eye concealer and it doesn’t look white at all. As it’s MAC, it’s pretty pricey however it’s very very lasting especially if you’re someone who doesn’t wear makeup everyday.
I brought mine from Debenhams for the price of £20.50.
Black Up Blush – BL02
I am very new to black|up but so far from what I’ve brought from them, they are a very good brand for WOC. When it comes to blushes, it’s not easy to find one where it doesn’t just look like you have a big pink spot on your face so imagine my surprise when I brought a PURPLE blush and it looks brilliant on me.
This is a pigmented blush so you don’t need a lot otherwise it’ll just look ridiculous. As you can see, it looks like I’ve hardly used it! black|up is a high end brand so it is pricey as well. I brought it from Debenhams for £19.
Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Powder – Dark
LOVE THIS. This is a product that I always use even on days that I have the minimal make-up. It just finishes up any type of make-up perfectly and gives you such a glow ^_^
L’oreal Miss Manga – Black Angel
I brought this mascara randomly during one of my mainly shopping sprees and I’m so glad I did. It wasn’t until I saw the advert on TV that I realised that it’s a new mascara from L’Oreal. This mascara doesn’t give you the fake eyelashes effect however it does make your lashes look much longer and as someone who doesn’t wear fake eyelashes, it’s a definite plus for me.
Watch the video below to see what other people think about it.
It’s drugstore so it’s not expensive at all so you can buy it almost everywhere.
Milk of Magnesia
The primer of all primers even though it’s not meant to be a primer. An old friend introduced me to this and it’s been a lifesaver. Since I’ve started using this, I’ve seen a difference in my bare face. There’s much less spots as compared to the amount I had when I used actual primers. It also keeps my make-up on all day as well. I come home as I leave, flawless.
So there you have it. The SIX beauty item that have been good to me this month and I advice a lot of you to definitely check each out!
