Some make up picks from the weekend !
Crawling into bed after a night shift, so tired I'm typing with my eyes closed 😫

Makeup picks for the day ⏰
I love the Pro conceal yellow corrector to contrast when I use an orange corrector under my eyes, but the formula continues to split and water comes out so I won't be repurchasing πŸ˜–

Some favourite makeup picks πŸ™ŒπŸ½
πŸŽ–οΈ ELF High definition powder - now I hear elf will be sold in Superdrug soon, I have loved ELF products for years, when they used to have a UK website and everything was Β£1-5 ! Now I see the prices have gone up, elf is hit and miss I think but some of their products are amazing. Especially their brushes, I like the powder to bake with but it gives off a white cast πŸ˜• so I'd say give this a miss.
πŸŽ–οΈ MAC blush in Gingerly is holy grail for now and ever
πŸŽ–οΈ Benefit goof proof pencil and Ready Set Brow gel, love the combo of these but I won't be investing in the pencil personally. I like it but I'm sure the drugstore will have a good copy, the gel however I think is worth it.
πŸŽ–οΈ Seventeen Falsifeye mascara, absolute favourite ! Super sharp spiky brush so be careful, but great formula and will repurchase
πŸŽ–οΈ L'OrΓ©al true match highlight in Golden Glow, I bought this after seeing how glowy my best friend looked (@satvir09) and I needed it too, I mix it with my tinted moisturiser for glowy skin and I love it !
On another note I am on annual leave for a week, and I have so much free time this is new to me ... expect lots of rambling posts πŸ˜£πŸ™ŒπŸ½

Makeup of the day ⏰ this is my usual daily routine!
πŸ‰ ELF brow kit with Benefit Ready Set Brow gel
πŸ‰ NARS Creamy Concealer set with S&G Kick Ass powder
πŸ‰ Mac blush in gingerly
πŸ‰ 17 Falsifeye mascara
πŸ‰ Colourpop lippie stick in Goal Digger

You know I'm a lippie kinda girl, how could I resist ! In my head all I can hear is Jamie Foxx singing '...I always fall, for your type' 😏
I swear they're different... kind of !
I have swatched them on my arm and boy oh boy, they are insanely hard to remove. I had to use cleansing oil, eyemakeup remover and then more oil. My arm was unbelievably sore after being scrubbed πŸ˜‚
Plus they dry darker than the tube, but I will do proper swatches soon, all nice and neat with tape so it's aesthetically pleasing πŸ˜‹

I'm currently lying in bed feeling sorry for myself, so why not post my Colourpop Haul πŸ™ŒπŸ½
I made 5 orders (shadows and lippies) in total, made sure they were all under £15 to avoid the customs fee. And all but one got through, but I'm contesting the customs fee on that order 😏 (message me if you need more info on how to do this)
The first thing I picked up is the Super Shock shadows.
The colours from top to bottom, R-L, Sequin, Sailor, Nillionaire, So Quiche, Arrow and Weenie.
Clearly I have a type as they're all warm and from similar colour palettes πŸ˜‚
The texture is so unusual, like a soft mousse ? But the colour payoff is incredible, I will swatch them for you eventually ! But so far, very happy with this order 😍 @colourpopcosmetics

Today's simple makeup πŸ‰
I'm seriously lacking motivation lately to post, I totally agree with @jasminetalksbeauty latest post, these new algorithms on instagram mean engagement has dropped dramatically !
Anyways, enough negativity for a Monday morning, hope you all have a great week πŸ€—
I've been loving @lipsticksandteeth feed, my Bobbi Brown wishlist is so long because of you Ayah ! πŸ˜–πŸ˜

MAC pigment in Melon πŸ‰
Adds the most beautiful pop of gold on the lid. I use it mixed with some KIKO mixing solution which gives it a more metallic finish.
This is the small size as I don't use it enough to justify the bigger one !

Beauty By Vads (@beautybyvads)

I'm back I swear ! πŸ˜‚
Apologies for being MIA, I was having a blast eating my body weight in pizza with my dearest @amo_m !
So for today, if I had an extra 10 mins I would be wearing this, but given im on Trauma Call all week, I've resorted to no makeup πŸ™„
Expect full glam again by Friday ! Products tagged 🌍

Finally picked up this sunscreen as I'm off next week and wanted something to wear under my makeup 🌞
I know UV light is one of the main reasons our skin ages so I'm trying to work spf into my skincare routine ! (Which if you know me well, doesn't really exist πŸ™„)
This feels lightweight, hydrating and soaks into the skin without any residue, it has a soft shimmer which adds a really nice glow to the skin !
It was an eye watering £16, for a small little bottle 😣 but it's an investment !
And now it's time for bed after a busy night shift, have a great Saturday πŸ˜πŸ™ŒπŸ½

To complete my Nip+Fab haul 😁 (who also reposted my pic thank you !)
From top to bottom : Spice, Brownie, Marshmellow
I love all the nude tones that they make !
But they Spice and Brownie are both cool toned nudes, so definitely a lot different to what I usually buy.
Marshmallow isn't working for me at all, it washes me out so I will be gifting this elsewhere !
But I love the formula, pigmented and doesn't feel too drying on the lips 😍 @nipandfabuk @nipandfabuk

Nip+Fab Travel palette in Medium/Dark 🌹
These colours all work so well on my skintone (NC42) and I'm so happy with the shade range and quality !
It's a sturdy compact with a big mirror, and I do lots of travelling so I love that I have a blush,highlight and contour in one product and they're all amazing !
The highlight is a beautiful gold champagne which reflects so well, it's not too overpowering which I prefer πŸ€—
I'm so glad I picked this up, can't wait to take it away with me on my travels to Italy ! @nipandfab

Nip + Fab Haul πŸ€— from @superdrugloves
I've seen people rave about this brand for so long I figured I wanted to have a look too πŸ˜ƒ
I picked up the Travel palette, foundation and 2 liquid lipsticks, and received the free gift which contained a mascara, liquid lip and lip liner πŸ’Έ
Pretty good value !
I've never owned a foundation before, but sometimes I wish I had something very light coverage as a base, so wanted to try this first. More reviews coming up ! 😁

Body Shop haul ☘️🌹
I haven't shopped at The Body Shop for ages, but after seeing @phosbeauty do lots of beautiful pics, I figured I should pop in !
I visited the shop in Wembley Outlet Park, and it was 40% off if I bought 4 things ... πŸ™„ I mean, for that price I just has to ! I picked up these things (plus an extra cleansing oil) for Β£27! I nearly fainted when she told me at the till, felt super smug leaving with 5 products and change from Β£30 πŸ˜‚
🌹 Peach shower gel - smells divine, my showers are going to feel tropical!
🌹 Ginger shampoo - I remember hearing @poofie.peej rave about this, and if she raves about something then it must be bought, I know everyone agrees 😣
🌹Camomile cleansing oil - already used it, and I love it. It feels so luxurious on the skin and my makeup melted off, so easy.
🌹Tea tree face wash - sort of a 'let's see' kinda buy, I needed a new face wash and I like the smell.

Today's makeup pics 🍾
I had to keep it simple ! (Ish)
KIKO 208 highlighter, it's a sure fire winner for me. Super glowy and beautiful, and travel size too!
It's midday, and my bleep won't stop going off and here's me wishing it was hometime already 😫
Thank god I wore setting spray because running up and down 6 levels of a hospital isn't doing my face many favours ! πŸ˜‚

Makeup picks πŸ‘€
🍬Urban Decay shadow box - I love the quality of the shadows but they aren't very daytime wearable !
🍬 LA Girl colour correctors - I'm still torn on these,I'm sure much better correctors exist !
🍬 Boing Concealer by Benefit - I don't like it, but I hate throwing things away, I feel like it's a waste of money so I'm trying to use it !
🍬 MAC blush in Fever 🍬 Illamasqua Radiance Veil primer - major glow when mixed with a base products, maybe a little much but let's go with it anyway !
🍬 Benefit Goof Proof eyebrow pencil - actually love this, but it's similar to nearly every Brow pencil I've tried !
🍬 Sleek matte me liquid Lip in Birthday Suit - it's holy grail status, the shade is gorgeous but it's extremely drying πŸ˜…

This is what I would like to be wearing today, but as I'm working this weekend, the early starts mean it's more of a 'blusher and mascara only' kinda day πŸ€—

Beauty By Vads (@beautybyvads)

I wish I could get my background whiter without it affecting the products on it ! I think it's my walls giving the dark tinge πŸ˜’ any tips ?
🍾 Tartette in bloom palette - all time favourite, amazing blendability, shade range and pigmentation 🍾 LA girl yellow corrector with LA Colours orange corrector
🍾 KIKO Concealer
🍾MAC nutcracker duo in Sweet Copper

Todays picks 🌠
πŸ€— Morphe 35O palette - of this comes in stock, get it. Run and buy it and then we can all marvel together at how beautiful it is. I picked up the mix of matte and shimmers because I don't like all matte or all shimmer, but that's just personal !
πŸ‡ KIKO highlighting and contouring sticks - I prefer the contour shade but use it very lightly as heavy contour makes me look odd, the highlight isn't glowy enough but the cream base helps the powder pop more. 🍾
πŸ‡ KIKO Concealer in shade 6 - @poofie.peej enabled purchase as always, and I knew I'd love it anyway. It's pigmented, creamy but thick. So I use it over colour corrector or on my lids.
