Weekend Face | Summer Edit

My base game is pretty much the same. Prepping with Nuxe Creme Fraiche (£16.50). This takes care of all the flakey bits in seconds without making it greasy. Sunscreen from Simple (£4.99). Bobbi Brown’s Skin Serum (£39)foundation goes on after. This is a SPF 40 with a light natural looking coverage. I’m skipping concealer and blending my foundation under the eyes as well.

They are one of my favorite formulation. Not too shiny, not too drying. This one is in the shade 771 Passionnée (£24).

This gives medium coverage while still looking like skin. It’s easier to blend and build up coverage with a tanning mitt, if you haven’t tried that already! Nuxe Huille Prodigieuse on top equals perfect pair of legs.

Weekend Face | Deep Cleansing

aesop_parsley_seed_mask.jpgaesop_parsley_seed_mask.jpgtrevor_sorbie_shampoo.jpgtrevor_sorbie_straight_shampoo.jpgThis month involved ton of tube travel, fish and chips and walking about in London. I feel like I need to detox, fill my tummy with tons of greens and squeeze them gunk out the pores.

Starting with my mini Thermal Cleansing Balm from Omorovicza, love this stuff. Sadly, it’s almost run out. Finally got around to using Aesop’s Parsley Seed mask. This smells so good -essential oils and herbal. I will do a full review on this after. For hair bits, I switched to Trevor Sorbie straight shampoo and conditioner. This is a weekend thing I have been doing for the past few months. Loreal’s Ever Riche range has been my daily shampoo,conditioners for over a year now but overtime, it tends to weigh my hair down a bit. Trevor Sorbie shampoo has SLS in it, which is not ideal but it’s not too stripping either. The conditioner is thick and does a good basic conditioning job.

Better get to it now..Have a good weekend, everyone!

Weekend Face | Spring Edit

weekend makeup routineBobbi brown skin serum foundation reviewSpa sanctuary illuminating moisture lotion spf 15Amazing cosmetics amazing concealer review

The weather scene this weekend has been predicted to be mostly sunny. Glad I have the face routine set.

Alpha-H SPF 50+ is a simple lightweight sunscreen. I have talked about it tons before. Boots eye cream is another basic, not too high on SPF but works well under concealer, no white cast and doesn’t rub off easily. Can’t believe I have never mentioned this Spa Sanctuary Illuminating lotion before. But there you go. I have had this for maybe 4 months. It’s no Dior Glow, the illumination is rather sparse. There is no shimmer, it’s quite flat in terms of lifting effect but I like that. It’s subtle and requires no precision.

My to go concealer Amazing Concealer in caramel. It’s sooo lovely and easy to put on. My current foundation is Bobbi Brown’s intensive skin serum foundation. I wrote a sort of first impression view here. I love how easily is blends into skin and has high SPF. Nude Magique primer is a new addition. I don’t wear a primer everyday but I feel like the foundation works better on a primer. As a general rule, any foundation works better on moisturized skin. That’s the aim for me. I am not mad about this particular primer, it’s not hydrating but not mattifying either. So until I find something better. Genuinely bored with lipsticks in my stash but today I think it’s going to be Max Factor in Radiant. Hunting for something new. Eyes on Clarins instant light 04 Orange! Lastly, miss sporty clear mascara to direct them brown right.

Okay, I think I typed that in under two minutes *pats back* …Enough chitter-chatter, let the mojito assemble!
