Summer Bucketlist: Let's Talk Beauty

Summer is shining upon us! and although in England summer lasts about 2 weeks I am determent make the most of it, and my good friend Raquel loves to make the most of it too!
so we are doing a little collaboration where I supply my summer bucket list of all things beauty!
and she brings you her bucket list of wonderful summer fashion!
for all of you guys so please go and check out the other half of this post!

Water bottle fruit infuser

I have been obsessed with these fruit infusers!
not only dose it taste amazing but it encourages you
to drink more water on those hot summer days!
There are so many things you could do with it!
Lemon, mint, cucumber, any fruit you can
think of can make a healthier option
rather than some other surgery drinks     

                    Evian facial mist 

This is a light weight facial mist, it has vitamins and lots of good things for your skin! and its perfect for refreshing your face before
or after you apply your makeup or even just through out

Fat girl six pack

this definitely something interesting 
It is supposed to tone your tummy!
i am very curios to see if this works or not
let me know if you have tried it! 
the day!

H&M makeup key ring

I think this is perfect for sleepovers, after swimming, 
touch-ups during the day! all it need is a concealer! 

Sephora summer stash

This is such a great little kit from sephora so many
goodies to try! and all of them perfectly picked out 
to be the perfect summer makeup bag


NYX waterproof concealer

This sounds perfect for the beach! not having to
 worry about your makeup coming off!

Sally Hansen zero bumps spray

shaving bumps are so irritating! so when i
saw this i thought it was perfect,
im so glad i found a way to get rid of them

Naked 3 pallet

I am a huge fan of the number one pallet! but not so much for the second,
but i think now the third could be my new favorite
i just love the rose gold tone to all the shadows!  

Go and check out the second part of this post 
full of all the fashion!

How to shop for perfume

Try not to over spray

Your sense of smell can become numb if you over do your nose with too many scents.
By Having a sniff of coffee can “refresh your nose” in the same way a mint can clear your mouth after a meal.

Take your time 

If you’re wanting to try a perfume you have been recommended from someone else 
spray it on your wrist and spend some time with it to see how it reacts with your skins natural oils as this can change the scent, This is why the same perfumes can smell different on someone else.

Switch it up

You might be looking for a signature scent which captures your personality, but wearing the same thing day in day out and you’ll soon get tired of it. Instead, try and build up a “perfume wardrobe”, with different scents to suit different occasions and seasons.

Scent cards

instead of spraying a few scents all the way up your arm try using the tester cards that are provided, you can mark them so you know what perfume it is and not be mixing the scents together, and the perfume will last more longer on a card if your want to get some one else's opinion  

Found the one? Make it last

You can also help your perfume to go the distance by applying some petroleum jelly to your skin, and then applying your scent on top of that. The perfume droplets will cling to the petroleum jelly - rather than sinking into your pores - which can reduce or eliminate the need to reapply fragrance later in the day.

Pulse points

The "pulse points" are locations on the body where the blood vessels are closest to the skin. These spots emanate heat, which can help fragrance to emanate from your skin into the air. (It's the same principle used by essential oil diffusers). Apply your perfume to these points - namely, the inner wrists, the base of the throat, behind ear lobes, in the cleavage, behind knees, and the inner elbows. As you wear your perfume throughout the day, it will react with your body heat and continue to emit scent

Revlon colour stay 24hr foundation review

Hello glitter bugs today is going to be a little extension to my April favourites, I had heard so many good things about this foundation before trying it but the thing that really puts this foundation on top is its
amazing staying power which it climes to be 24hrs!
I don't know why you would need to it to last 24hrs, but not only dose it last me all day but in one day
I had taken a nap, worked out, and been in the rain and
I'm not going to lie it wasn't perfect but it was pretty amazing how it held up like no other foundation I have tried.

but for avarage day it will last me from when I apply it until when I take it off which could be anything from 10/13 hours with no touch ups, and it looking the exact same and very fresh
as far as the claim of it lasting 24hrs I don't think I will ever know if that's true because I would never leave my foundation on for 24 hrs

The finish of this foundation I would say is semi matt
and the constancy is pretty thick on the back of my hand and a little bit of it goes a long way, but when I blend it into the skin with my real techniques buffing brush it dose feel surprisingly light and I cant feel it on my skin 

although its lightweight on the skin its not a light coverage but as with any foundation if you applied it sparingly you could get it looking natural but the foundation is a very good medium to high coverage which I love but never the less it dose look flawless and not cakey,
and I have been using this foundation over my beloved mac studio sculpt

After the first time I left the foundation on for maybe 15 to 16 hours
I did feel my skin being a little dryer, I have normal but very sensitive skin
and because it lasts so long it really dry's up and locks on to your skin
But I accidently picked up the oily/combination formula when I think the
dry skin formulation would be better for me,
as its less thick and more moisturising.
so pay attention to that if your thinking about purchasing  

Pros and cons


.20 shades to chose from
.Lasts a long time
.Comes in different formulas for dry skin or oily/combination skin
.durable but still light weight
.looks flawless
.doesn't oxidise
.No need to touch up during the day
.Smells great
.easy to blend


.No pump to dispense product 
.Hard to remove with just a makeup wipe
.Dry's fast while applying
.the foundation is thick and its a struggle to get out of the glass bottle

Overall I love this product and truly recommend it to all of you
I really have no complaints about it apart from the packaging
but if I can find a pump for it will be a 9/10 from me!
I hope you have a lovey day!

April favourites

As I'm in America right now I cant help but try out every thing that I cant get back home!
plus with a few too many naughty online sprees, needless to say I need to upgrade my makeup bag 
 picking the best of the best out of every thing was not as hard as
I thought because these things have really stood out to me this past month and even longer!
I also tried to put my own spin on the favourites thing we do around here it so I hope you love it! 

Tangle Teezer

I have been oohing and ahhing about one of these for a while now, but a hair brush is something I think you shouldn't need to spend more that £5 on, but I found this on amazon for a great deal!
It really works like it says! I can have the worst birds nest on my head and it would
1. not take long to detangle
2.its pain less even for the wost hair days
And I love the way its shaped for holding and its curved to the shape of your head to 
so best hair brush ever 10 out of 10!

2True Eye brow pencil

This is something i cant say enough good things about! I had such trouble finding something to fill in my eye brows whether it be powder or pencil it would always have a very warm tone and I really wanted something that was cool toned to match my skin and hair better
so i looked to the high end brands for the answer but
I didn't want to dish out £20 odd for it so my friend tipped me on to this,
honestly I have never taken a look at the
little 2true stand at Superdrug but I'm glad I did!
first off its £2! and its the perfect colour, not to soft or hard just what i was looking for 
so if you are having a similar issue your welcome!

Maybelline rocket mascara

I normally double up on mascara, use one for length and use another to add volume but again
a lovely friend of mine let me borrow hers one day and i had a epiphany!
I have tried a good amount of mascaras over time low end and high end but
This mascara did every thing it added volume with out being clumpy, separated well
lengthened and it stays black all day!

Favourite person

I make the rules around here so I'm going to say my cats!
I miss these boys so much while I'm away, so just take a minute to soak in the cute ness!

Favourite movie

The neighbours! I actually saw this like 2 hours ago and it was so funny!
And we cant forget Frozen! I wish Olaf was real!

Favourite memory

Me and my boyfriend when to the special Olympics at his school we even
got to join in and had a basket ball game with them!
it was a lot of fun and made me very happy!    

Have a wonderful week everyone!
good luck! and may the odds be ever in your favour
