Make Up Revolution...the brand to beat!

Make up revolution

Make Up Revolution in my opinion is the brand to beat on the high street. The value and quality of their products is so impressive and affordable.

On a daily basis I use the Make Up Revolution Fixing Spray which does the job for me, making my make up last all day. I know there is a lot of misconceptions to whether fixing sprays actually work or whether they are just gimmicks but personally I can see a difference.

I picked up the Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer when they first came out and I love the way it looks and feel on my skin; they have amazing coverage and for the £4 price point you cannot go wrong. If you have not tried them yet, I would highly recommend you get your hands on them!

Recently, Make Up Revolution came out with Revolution Fast Base Foundation Sticks, and I knew I had to pick them up. I picked up 2 shades, initially just picking the one shade F8, which matched well but I felt it washed me out a little. So now I use F10 around the perimeters of my face, contour lines and neck and F8 in the centres of my face- that combination I love! The foundation sticks come in two tones; a pink undertones (odd numbers) and orange undertones (even numbers).

The coverage is perfect and buildable. The thing I have noticed is you need a well prepped base and throughout the day it can begin to get oily if not set properly with powder usually around my t-zone. Other than that, it has a creamy consistency and glides on to the face, and is easy to blend out. I usually use a beauty blender, as that is all I ever use to apply make up. The image below is an unedited picture taken on my iPhone, just to give you an idea of the coverage and finishing of the foundation. On top of the foundation, I have used the Make Up Revolution Concealer in the shade C5  and set it with Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder. I have not used any contour on my forehead, that is just the difference in the foundation shades.

Waiting For Spring

Srping

The weather in the UK has recently been so depressing and deceiving, there are days where the skies blue but it's freezing and then other days it is continuously raining. At this moment in time looking out my window all I can see is pouring rain and cloudy grey skies. I cannot wait for blue skies, sun with a little breeze, and the daily walks around different parks. Going for long walks and exploring is one of my favourite things to do, it is so calming, relaxing and refreshing. During my time at university, exam breaks use to alway involve going to my local park for a walk around the lake.

At the moment, I am currently in revision mode again but to qualify and pass my training year. So balancing revision and a full time job has been a little challenging. But whenever the weathers a little brighter, I use it to my full advantage and that also helps lift my mood and motivates me to revise- does anyone else feel like that?

I am slowly trying to bring a little spring into my outfits, a pop of yellow and out comes the loafers and away goes the wintery coats and boots- although some days I do have to bring them back out. The picture below, is an outfit I wore during the week, as I put it on, I felt spring ready. The scarf is standard scarf from Forever 21 that I brought a while ago but just never wore, the colour is so beautiful and bright. Shoes are from River Island, which are super comfortable and the tassels just add a little extra to and ordinary pair of loafers. And if you know me you will know I love shoes with tassels.
