Hello ladies, I hope you’re all well and enjoying the last few days of summer.
This is a collective haul of the past two months, and the last bit of makeup shopping I’ll be doing till I get the chance to get my hands on the Lorac Pro palettes!
Starting with my superdrug bits, after loving the Bourjois CC cream so much I have really been experimental with drugstore bases from ethical brands. The happy light foundation is the 4th base I now own from Bourjois (YES FOURTH D:)...and I bought it in the shade 53 which is a TAD darker than I would normally go for. First impressions are mixed, so I’ll have to dedicate a month to properly road test this before I report back, have you tried this? What are your thoughts?
The second bronzer in my series is one of my all time favourite makeup products of ALL TIME. Again when swatched in the pan it looks nothing like how it appears on the skin...I’m beginning to see a theme here...you shouldn’t judge a bronzer till you’ve applied it on your face! It is made up of four shades, a light brown and a cool dark brown, a highlight and a pink blush shade and on the back of the paper packaging it claims to ‘Create a healthy looking tan’ which I am pleased to report it does very well!
Hi ladies! Looking through my stash, I have accumulated....lets be honest here....a LOT of everything over the past year! But one part of my makeup wardrobe, that has been silently growing, almost unnoticed by me, has been my bronzer draw! I thought I’d start a mini series on my blog, called ‘bronzing on a budget’ because although I have now dabbled into high-end bronzers (and I love em!) I have so many good drugstore ones that I’d love to share with you all ^_^
The cute loom-band bracelets were made by my little cousins - thanks girls!
This Eid I thought I’d make a bit more effort with my nails, and as I had recently picked up some pretty gold/silver nail studs it seemed like the perfect occasion to try it!
