Hello 2016…

2015 has literally flown by and its is already the 15th January (Crazy!) however I wanted to blog about the things which have happened throughout 2015 which are going to stay in my memory. Now i’m only 16 so 2015 was a year of working hard and getting my GCSE’s which I guess is a memorable time. From January to May my time at school in Year 11 was by far the best time I have ever had even though exam prep was stressful, I became friends with new people which I will be friends with for the rest of my life and figured out exactly what I wanted to do in the future which is amazing. Knowing what I wanted to do when I was 11 was quite crazy however for the 4 years I was in education I stuck with my ambition which is what I am achieving now.

To go to College I just needed to get the grades I needed in my GCSE’s and I could start my journey to my dream job. For GCSE I got 2 A*’s, 1 A, 2 B’s, 2 C’s and 1 D (in History I will add… whoops!) After the stressful exams over the course of June 2015 and the anticipation of getting my results in August 2015 I was sure of exactly I wanted to do in the future and that is to be a professional makeup artist. I enrolled in college as I got the grades I needed to apply and that is what I am doing currently, training to be a makeup artist! I absolutely love it and couldn’t think of doing anything else.

In November 2015 I decided that I would start this blog as I want to document what I have been doing and the experiences which I will have as I grow up and I hope that you enjoy reading this blog as I have making it.

Hope you have a fantastic day,

Love Freya xx

 

Zoella Beauty Range…

Now I know that Christmas is all about being around loved ones and having a great time, (oh and food of course) however a Christmas without a few presents to unwrap in the morning wouldn’t be the same. For this Christmas I was given a few items from the Zoella Beauty range in which I have never tried any of the products before.

The items which I was given was one of the Christmas gift sets, the large vanity case and small coin purse and the “Hey Roomie” reed diffuser

The first Item that I got from my sister was one of the Christmas gift sets. Included in the set is the “Creamy Madly Dreamy” body lotion, “Blistful Mistful” body mist and a cute blue and white polka dot head band. This trio is a perfect gift for anyone who loves a pamper evening or just girly things.

The scent of the two products is the scent from the original line which I absolutely love!

The second product I will be reviewing is the large vanity case, which is part of the new range especially for Christmas. This product is the perfect size for any occasion as it can be used as a makeup bag, a toiletries bag or something to carry hair products in. I love this product and I believe it would also be a great gift or anyone.

The last product I will be reviewing is the “Hey Roomie” reed diffuser. Now for a while now I have been wanting a room diffuser for my bedroom and when I found out that Zoe came out with one I instantly wanted it. This product smells amazing and makes my whole room smell wonderful which I love and would reccomend it for people who want an inexpensive room diffuser as it can be placed anywhere in the house because of its delicate design.

Product Review |Schwarzkopf Beauty Balm

For the past 5 months or so I have been using this product  as my hair care product every time I wash my hair. Alongside this product I am using the L’Oreal Mythic Oil and the Dove heat defence spray however I believe that this product is the reason for my hair improving in it quality.

Processed with Rookie Cam

For a retail price of £9.38 I think it is a no brainer, however other places do sell it at other prices:

 

 

It claims to have a “New cell perfector technology”, and also claims to “Intensively rehydrate hair and helps to protect hair against heat damage” It “Restores normal-Dry or curly hair at a cellular level for exceptional shine” which I think is correct.

To apply this product you work a small ammount (Depending on your hair thickness) into towel dry hair and leave in. As this product Includes Hyaluronic acid derivative and Panthenol it makes the hair healthier and more hydrated.

  • Hyaluronic acid = Is a gel-like, water holding molecule which hydrates the skin and hair
  • Panthenol = Increases water content of hair and improves its elasticity.

Overall I would really recommend this product to people who don’t want to spend massive amounts of money on hair care products as it is inexpensive and lasts a long time. Likewise I would further reccomend it for people who have heat damaged or coloured hair as it would benefit them in the long run as it hydrates and makes the hair look healthy.

Lush Goodies …

So I did a little bit of shopping, no surprise there! However I love lush so so much that of course I had to pick up a few things. As you may or may not know lush has stocked their Christmas range of goodies for the holiday so I decided to go check it out. In the end I only ended up buying one thing from the collection which is so typical as I never get what I originally want in any situation. Furthermore I did pick up some products from the original line of bath bombs as well…

1

I only Purchased three items but just for my sake I had to take loads of pictures… (Typical me!)

 

2

 

 

The first Item which i picked up was the “Peeping Santa” bubble bar. Isn’t he cute? I just couldn’t leave him in the store and I believe he was the cheapest holiday item in store which made me want to get it more! The scent of this bubble bar is very Christmacy and warm which I love around this time of year and would recommend it to anyone.

3

The next item I bought is from the permanent line and it is “Blackberry” bath bomb. This one is probably in my top 5 of my favourite bath bombs as the scent is lovely and smells like palma Violet sweets…yummy! Now I wont ruin the surprise but inside is a special gift     which I found hilarious when I first tried one out!

4

The third and final bath bomb I purchased is “So White” bath bomb. This one is also one of my favourites as it has a slight scent of apples which I love, It is a plain bath bomb and isn’t very special however I love the plainness of it and how it wouldn’t turn the bath water any colour.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Reveiw

I recently went shopping for makeup (Obviously) and I found new products on the Bourjois stand and was instantly excited. I have heard about the Rouge Edition Liquid lipsticks before and was pleased to find out they were on sale!  I picked up 3 colours from the collection out of a total 9 shades which are listed on Bourjois website for a retail price of £8.99. As these products were 3 for 2 at the time I received a free eyeshadow trio which was a nice surprise.

The 3 colours which I got were:
#12 Beau brun#12 Beau brun (1)

My first impressions of these products is that they are really pigmented and soft when you swatch them and leave a very matte finish, however I find them quite hard to apply as they feel too soft on the lips. I also found that they do bleed over the natural line of your lips so if you want a smooth, seamless finish you may have to use a lip liner.

Overall I think for the price they are a good purchase and would recommend them if you are used to wearing and applying liquid lipsticks as they take a little practice. If these products weren’t on the 3 for 2 offer at the time I wouldn’t have bought all three colours as I don’t think £8.99 is a reasonable price for a high street product like this.

Hope you enjoyed reading!

– Angela Pumo Training Day

On Thursday 19th November 2015 I attended a Makeup Artistry training day with a well known makeup artist called Angela Pumo. It was Amazing and I learnt so much from it and would recommend it to anyone who want to get into the makeup industry. There was around 20 people in our group and we learnt everything there is to know about bridal makeup and also catwalk makeup which we then got to try ourselves in the afternoon session.
For our Bridal look we learnt what colours worked together and how to apply makeup which suited the outfit, the colour of the clients hair and also their eyes. We could choose whether we wanted to create the Bridal look or the catwalk look so I didn’t chose not to recreate the catwalk look, however we were allowed to use glitter and bright eye shadows which looked great in photos.

At the end of the day we were presented with a certificate congratulating us on completing the training day and we could also buy some of the products that Angela used and also what we used. Overall it was a great day and I was so glad that I attended.

Thank you for reading,

🍁Favourite Lipsticks for Autumn 🍁

🍂🍁🍃 🍂🍁🍃🍂🍁🍃🍂🍁🍃🍂🍁

Throughout Autumn I have been loving to wear more warm colours on my lips, most of the lipsticks I have been wearing are from the Kate Moss collection by Rimmel! Deeper reds are very in season all year round however I find adding a bold lip to a neutral eye can immediately enhance the overall look.

All the Lipsticks that I have listed below, I believe would match any skin tone as they are more warmer colours, however it’s all down to personal preference …

Here are a few of my favourites:

  • Rimmel Kate Moss in “107”
  • Rimmel Kate Moss in “30”
  • Rimmel Kate  Moss in “111”
  • Rimmel Kate Moss in “08”
  • MAC in “Brave”
