Test Drive your Cosmetics

Hey Dolls,

It’s been a while! wish there was more time in the day, writing up business plan, work, the twins and figuring out what new direction the blog is going! Anyway this post is not about that! However I will get back to that in more detail…Promise. Will try keep this post short and sweet.

Clients, girlfriends and family members always ask me, Christelle what’s a good eye cream or foundation etc etc. I obviously recommend what i know and I’ve tried, but that does not necessarily mean that it is right for their needs. I’ve always keep in mind if I’m going to spend money on good skin care, foundation or concealer….the list keeps going! Always ask for samples see if it works for you, see how you like it! There is nothing worst than spending £50 on a eye cream, for it to be siting in the back of your bathroom shelf because it is not working for you!!! We have all been there trust me, I know! It can be a little embarrassing to ask for samples….but don’t be, you have every right to do so.

I Asked for Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation samples, used it…Loved it! Bought IT!

Now kind of addicted to her products, I’m currently sampling her skincare range ‘The Magic Skin Trilogy‘.  The Magic Night Cream and The Magic Eye Rescue, haven’t tried The Magic Cream yet, however it is  an award-wining product! The samples I’m using so far so good!

The Magic Night Cream, has 8 de-ageing ingredients; Time-Released Retinol Molecules, Winter Daphne Stem Cells Extract, Frangipani, Vitamin E, Bionymph Peptide, Second Skin Red Algae Marigel, Castor Seed Oil is the healing properties in this cream and the last ingredient is Olus Oil.  It is always better to start using anti-ageing creams now to prevent the natural ageing process and avoid botox! I use a little, its an elixir so you do not need use a lot the texture is rich but velvety. My skin feels amazing in the morning, plump and smooth. I’m a firm believer of night creams and this one is 10/10.

The Magic Eye Rescue, contains 6 of the same ingredients instead of the Castor Seed Oil and Olus Oil; It contains Botanical Eye Contour Complex and Saccharide Isomerate. The Magic Eye Cream reduces the appearance of puffiness and dark circles, meant to smooth fine lines and instantly tightens and refreshes the skin. Well as you know the skin around your eyes is the thinest, so I apply very little around my eyes, you should always gently tap around the eyes not rub it! Because I used so little from my sample it lasted me a week and the appearance of my dark circles have reduced…I hardly use concealer around my eyes now! I will be making a trip to the nearest Charlotte Tilbury haul on pay day!!

Do not be shy nor embarrassed to ask for samples, reviews are helpful but it is not the as trying it for your self! I mean when you buy a car…you test it first no? Hope you have found this post useful and pleasant…please feel free to comment or share with friends. Stay beautiful inside out. X

Spring me pretty 2016

Hi Dolls,

Happy New year beauties, wish you all a fabulous year!! Well with Fashion week coming up, which I’m so excited about!!! I have been doing some research on the expected beauty trends for spring/summer 2016. So i will be keeping this short and sweet!

So far what I’ve seen on the catwalk is doll look lashes from the 60s was seen on the Marni and Louis Vuitton show, graphic liners and still trending hard is the red lipstick… doubt this will ever go out of style!! At the Celine show, berry and purple lip stick at Mui Mui. Bright eyeshadows the blues, turquoise and yellows were spotted in the Missoni, Chanel and Alexis Mabille.  Defined brows, highlighted skin and subtle lips is still going strong was seen in Balmain, Roberto Cavalli and Bottega Veneta.

  1. Graphic liner
  2. Red lips
  3. Berry and Purples lip stick
  4. Bright eyeshadows
  5. Defined brows
  6. Glowing skin
  7. plump subtle lips
  8. Exaggerated lashes
  9. Edgy  Girl (kohl eyeliner inside the water line of your eyes)
  10. Faux Freckles

 

My favourite trend has to be the ‘faux freckles’, they looked beautiful at the Emanuel Ungaro, I have an obsession with freckles love them, I actually did faux freckles look for one of my assignments before i even knew that it was a trend to look out for!

I used  Motives Cosmetics brown kohl pencil to create the freckles and set it using Motives luminous powder. Defined her brows using Sleek brow gel and Motives Brow compact.

The Festive Season

Hi Guys and Dolls,😃

I would like to wish you all a Happy Christmas and Happy New Year! May 2016 be a great new beginning filled  with positivity, prosperity, happiness and good health. 

As we are about to enter the New Year, here’s my top tips for New Year’s Eve celebrations; 

1. Keep the glitter to a minimum, either your nails or eyeshadow! Don’t over do it!

2. Go for dark lip colour, berry colours and purples. Make sure you choose the right hues for your complexion.

3. Focus on one part of the face, either your eyes, lips or brows. This will give your look a sophicated touch.

Enter the New Year with style and clear state of mind. Don’t drink too much. Eat, pace your drinks, drink water in between rounds – best way to avoid hangovers! And drink a glass of water before bed, trust me it works. I’ve learned over the years how you spend New Year’s Eve determines what kind of year the next year is going to be. Happy New year and stay beautiful inside and out. 😘 🎉🎊 Christelle
