How to Fake Flawless SKIN!

Hey lovelies!
Ok so we have all had those days (and for me it usually happens on a very important day) when you wake up, and to put it nicely you look bad!
Dark circle, uneven skin tone and WHY oh WHY did that pimple choose today to show its face to the world! GRRR

Yes we have all had those day, and unfortunately no one has perfect skin 100% of the time (would be nice though right!?)
So post is going to be about this amazing product i was recently sent to review.....and honestly its a miracle! This product is going to help your fake the appearance of having flawless skin!!

Before

On the bad days this product smooths and melts away imperfections leaving your skin glowing and flawless, even if you know you have 100 pimples under it, you wont be able to tell!

After- Using only Skin 79 Chiffon BB Cream


 Ok so as you guess this amazing product is a BB Cream! I have used many many BB Creams in the past, but NONE have compared to this baby!
This is a BB Cream Chiffon Mousse! By Skin 79. This products is so light and hydrating on your skin, it leaves it feeling like you have nothing on at all, while still covering and smoothing out imperfections!

It is a Mousse constancy but honestly this much will do my whole face! Aswell this product is SPF 30!! Amazing skin without the oiliness or streakiness of using sunblock!
You can also double the product up and use as a concealer to cover blemishes and dark circles! No concealer needed!!

This product is from My BB Cream which is a on line wholesaler of Korean Cosmetics (Korean BB Cream's are the BEST!) they have a wide range of different brands and products.


PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Its described as being lightweight, fresh with a soft creamy texture. Which is absolutely true!
The prodcut also contains Glacial and Coral Water, to help cool and calm your skin. Mistletoe and Swiss Alpine Herb extract to help rehydrate your skin and give it a dewy glow.
It comes in 1 colour which is suited to fair, light and medium skin tones. As you may know BB Creams work with the skin, meaning they colour correct themself to suit your natural skin tone!! Amazing right!!

The Skin79 Chiffon BB Mousse is one of their latest and greatest products.
It comes in 50g can (shake before use) and retails for $33.60 (on sale atm though!)

Peter was very generose and gave me a 25% off discount code for you all to use untill the 30th of April 2013

"luvskin79"

Other Goodies!

I was also very lucky and spoilt and i was sent 3 other products!

The first is this amazing Powder from the "kick it side" collection it is called "touch me now".
This is a multipurpose powder. You can use it as blush, eyeshadow or my favorite use as a highlighter. It is so smooth and easy to use, but it has this stunning sheen to it, which really makes your skin look so luminous!
I like it because its a sheen, not a glitter or a gloss, just a healthy looking pearled sheen!



It retails for $19.80 for 9g of product- Again they are having a sale!! CHECK IT OUT


The next product is this amazing Chiffon Sponge
this is basically just a beauty blender. It works beautifully with the Chiffon Mousse, and its again multipurpose! the small end is great for covering imperfections while the larger end will work great for your whole face
Just make sure you wash it in water and clean it out after every use!
These sponges sell for $6.20


and lastly i was sent this amazing Lip Tint from the "Kick it Side" collection. This is in the shade "Attention".
This is a great lip gloss as its super glossy, not sticky and the colour really stays put on your lips for AGES!!
I really like this nude shade aswell, its very opaque! It also comes in a pretty pale pink.
This sells for $11.20 for 3gs AGAIN...on sale atm for $9 something..

So you saw the before photo, but what about once ive used all these amazing products??



There you go! Mirical product i know!!
Now you know my secret!!

Hope you all liked this post!!!

Lots of love

Blue Ombre Hair- HOW TO

Hey loveleis,
so you know me, i dont feel right if i dont have some crazy colour somewhere and today i want it to be my hair!
So this is more a pictorial of how i got my hair this amazing Ombre Blue!!
this was the photo that sparked my inspiration!


If you want to see the video, click here


So if you have watched the video ( if you havent watch it NOW lol)
i mentioned that i did a bleach bath on my hair. Most bright colours are designed to go on ligther/blonde hair, and because my hair at the time was red i needed to lighten it! Click here to find out how to do a bleach bath

So after my bleach bath, thanks to the red in my hair this was my result


So pretty isnt it! It came out this colour because i had existing colour in my hair- Its so orange because my hair was previously red!
*please note bleach baths are more gentle on your hair- However they are still bleach and they will still damage your hair so BE CAREFULL!!!

from there i applied my colour =D

Hair colour I used

La Riche Directions Hair colour- This colour is great because it stains your hair and adds condition. Meaning there isnt any peroxide or ammonia, so it acts like a tinted conditioner =D 
I bought my colour from a online store called Pimp my Eyes (mainly sells contacts x) at the time they had free express post OH YEAH!! the colour was cheap, and you got a fair ammount
$14 for 88mls as opposed to Fudge Paintbox where you pay $18 for 75mls
I left the colour on for 1-2 hours to really let it work its way in!!

The colours i got were
 Lagoon Blue- Mainly used in the mid lengths as a blending colour
 Neon Blue- Used on all my roots thoughout all my hair
 Turquoise- The mid-lenghts to ends colour
White Toner- Used to make a paler shade of turquoise




The great thing about this colour aswell is you can do a swatch on a piece of paper and see what the colour looks like. It will always be slightly brighter on white paper then on your hair- but it still gives you a fair idea!
Top- Neon Blue
Middle- Lagoon Blue
Bottom- Turquoise

Application

So what i did was apply the Neon Blue to all my roots of all my hair
Roughly about 15cms
As you see in this finished photo where the blue and turquoise meets

Then i applied the Lagoon blue in a few random sections

Lastly i applied Turquoise to all the hair that was remaining, using my fingers i blended it though well to create a seamless result!

I also had hair extensions that i coloured (see above video) to help add length and give me more ombre effect!





Fading

Like all vibrant colours they do fade. Personally i feel this colour lasts SOO much longer then fudge! This photo below is my colour without re-applying after 7 washes!
Yes it has faded, BUT if it was fudge colour i was using it would be all washed out!

To keep your colour vibrant i recommend mixing in some of the colour with your conditioner and using that when you wash your hair! It will give your colour a noticeable boost!!




Thanks so much for reading!!!
Love you all

Furless 20 Piece Brush Set Review


Hey lovelies
So Im super excited to introduce you to Furless Cosmtics!!

Furless as the name suggests is 100% vegan and cruelty free, and better yet- they are a Australian company!

I was contacted by Furless and asked if I wanted to review their brushes.
No joke 2 days later the brushes had arrived, and this was right at Christmas time! The shipping was super fast and the contact I had with Coralie from Furless who was amazing! Furless seem super nice and driven to impress their customers.

I was sent the 20 piece professional Brush set.

 Have been using this set for a bit over 2 weeks now- everyday with all my makeup looks!
And I have to say I am impressed! They quality and craftsman’s ship is simply amazing. (I will go into full detail with all the brushes a bit later in the blog-)

All the bushes have this amazing texture, they are sooo soft, shockingly soft! I was blown away by the velvetiness and silkiness of all the brushes. Since ive used them I haven’t had any sheading or fall out, and amazingly my makeup is looking more airbrushed, it has a silkiness to the finished result that I haven’t gotten with any other makeup brushes!

It came beautifully wrapped in zebra print creap paper and I was really surprised with Furless’s attention to detail!
The case the brushes sit in is amazing! Perfect for transportation and to keep the brushes in pristine condition! They have a elastic band which wraps around the case so they arnt going anywhere!!


 

THE BRUSHES

All the brushes are Blue with a gold trim, embossed with the furless logo and the brush name.

Perfect crease brush! This is domed in shape and will fit your crease perfectly. This will give you a amazing smokey eye!
Very dense brush with a small amount of movement on the ends to help blending.
