Mac Face and Body Review C1

Hello :)

So I wanted to share with you guys today something I wish i had tried long before. Being a pale person I have been going to Mac for my foundation as they have a great shade range. This first foundation i tried from them was the studio sculpt(NC15), which i have a love hate relationship with, sometimes i love it and sometimes it looks terrible on my skin. Then I tried then i tried the match master foundation (1.0) and i used and it was alright but i didn't notice amazing results.

I think for me was that i was matched with the wrong tone, although i have a lot of redness in my cheeks i am yellow undertoned, however i thought the make-up artist knew best. Now i am older i realise that i shouldn't just listen the their opinion.

Okay... so enough rambling.
Mac Face and Body is by far the best foundation i have personally tried for my skin, which is a combination of everything. For starters it is better colour match as it has a more yellow undertone meaning that it blends really well and looks a lot more natural. The foundation itself has quite a light texture and you can not feel it on your face one you have applied it, which it something i love. If left without power it has a slight sheen to it giving me a dewy look. The foundation is quite a light coverage, however it is easily build able, which i prefer for a night out.

So far i have not found anything that i really dislike about the foundation and will continue to keep using it as my everyday.

A Blush Revolution?

Hi guys :)

So you may have heard of the brand Makeup Revolution. They are a brand stocked by Superdrug here in the UK, with a price point very similar to MUA. I know that you can buy their products online too.

I have heard a lot of rave about the eyeshadow palettes in the beauty blogger sphere, and how they are a dupe for Urban Decay. However, I do not see a lot of their blush palettes, which is what I was most interested about. I managed to get my hands on sugar and spice palette, and i have to say i am really impressed with it.

The sugar and spice palette

You don't find many blush pallets in the drug store so i loved that there was on the market for such a little price. They retail for £6. For your money you get 6 large blushes, as well as 2 highlights. All of which are highly pigmented.

The sugar and spice palette is full of pink toned blushes, with 2 more brown blushes with pink undertones.
There is also the Hot space palette are more and orange and coral toned blushes.
The have also recently released the Golden sugar palette which has 4 bronzers, 2 blushes and 2 highlighters.

The sugar and spice pallette 

If you are looking for some new blushers in your life but don't want to break the bank then i would say this is the one for you.

What do i take for an overnight stay?

Hello everybody :)

So my first video on my channel was a whats in my travel make-up bag. This included all the things that I took home from university in order to be able to my make-up, and because I was gone for several days I took quite a bit home. However linking in with that I wanted to show you what I take when I am just going to stay somewhere for one night. For example when I stay at my boyfriends house.

What I am about to show you it also what I wear as my go to make-up at the minute so if you would like to see my go to make-up please let me know!

So without further ado this is what I take with me:

Foundation: MAC Face and Body (C1)

This gives a nice build-able coverage, you can also sheer it our with moisturiser if it is too thick for your liking.

Concealer: Collection Lasting Perfection (Fair 1)

This is the tried and tested concealer of the beauty world, it is simple to apply and really bendable, with good coverage.

Powder: L'Oreal Nude BB Magique (Light)

I love this powder for just taking away the sheen on the skin left by my foundation and to set all my cream products in place.

Bronzer: Benefit Hoola

This bronzer is great to contour, and also to add a bit of warmth to the face. It is also easily bendable on the skin.

Blush: Nars Orgasam

This blush again is something that is always hyped about in the beauty community. This blush is a lovely pink with gold shimmer in it giving your skin a nice flushed glow.
(This was the blush I happened to pick on the day, however my blush is the one thing i tend to change  from day to day)

Eyeliner: L'Oreal Super Liner Black Laquer

This is by far my favourite liquid liner and it super easy to apply for that simple everyday winged eyeliner.

Mascara: Covergirl Lastblast.

This is my favourite drug store mascara, and I am actually gutted you can not buy it in the UK so i am going to stock up when I go to America again. This mascara just gives my lashes tons of volume without making them too clumpy.

Lipstick: MAC Rebel (satin finish)

This is my favourite lipstick all year round, but i wear it constantly in the winter with this simple everyday look. Occasionally I might swap it out for a nude but most of the time I will be wearing this.

p.s I apologise for the not so great picture quality, I left my camera at home so had to take these on my phone. I promise I will have better picture quality soon.

The start of something new...

Hello everybody :)

I just wanted to start of my new blog with a little bit about me. My name is Jennifer, and I am currently a first year university student studying Media and Communication.

In my spare time I like to make YouTube videos, I have very recently started my new channel. I hope that I can make this one into something that I am very proud of. You can check my channel out here:

My YouTube channel and blog's main focus are going to be on make-up and beauty, as that is what I have the biggest interest in. However I will also include fashion posts, as well as every day life posts, including my university experience.

I am aiming at uploading at least one video a week to my YouTube channel, and at least 2 blogs posts here. I have a bunch of idea's for blog posts and video which I am hoping will be coming your way very shortly.
