It’s no secret that I am completely addicted to bronzer and having bronzed skin, considering I’ve only had my blog for two months and this has been my second blog post all about bronzer skin. Bronzing is a step in my everyday makeup routine, I find that using bronzer really does sculpt and give a little more colour to my face especially those early mornings were I’m half zombie, half human, bronzer is then my best friend.

They are a lot of bronzers too choose from in the makeup industry but I’m going to share with you my top 5 favourite affordable ones. Let’s be honest affordable drugstore bronzers are just as good or sometimes better as high end bronzers.

MUA Mosaic bronzer is on the very cheap affordable end of the 5 as it comes in at £2.50 only, yet one of the most stunning bronzers! As it is more than a bronzer, it has a blush colour and quite a lot of shimmer for it to be a highlighter as well all in one. MUA did a very good job making this little cute product, as the colour pay off is insane and it compliments my cheek bones very well. Cheap and cheerful.

Bourjois Powder is no stranger to my makeup collection, this one in particular as I’ve had it for 3 years now and it has still not developed a proper dent in the product! AMAZING! The bronzer itself is very warm and rich which gives tanned skin a gorgeous glow, and at the price that it is for it to last that long is also pretty amazing, people say it smells like chocolate I would say more vanilla for me, I think it might just be my smelling sense.

The Bourjois bronzing primer is very similar to the powder but in a mouse consistency which is perfect then for contour under foundation as your skin then looks sun kissed, almost as if you just came back from holiday, and who would not want that sun kissed holiday look? It is quite expensive coming at £10 for a drugstore product but you really only need a tiny bit of this as it is very pigmented. Personally I think it is almost a dupe for the Chanel Soeil Tan De Chanel, I’ve even heard people say the Bourjois one is better but don’t tell Chanel that.

L’oreal Glam bronzer is a new one to grace my collection, and honestly I cannot say I regret buying this! I have seen so many reviews that I had to see what the hype was about. Now I understand. The bronzer has slight flexes of gold running through it which look gorgeous with a smokey eye. Also the bronzer it self is very pigmented! I looove it and would say it can be used for contouring with a really light hand that is because of how strong the colour is. The packaging is super sophisticated and sleek also it comes with a little compact mirror underneath and a contour brush for on the go touch ups. Perfect!

Last but not least the Sleep Contour Kit, this is a product I cannot live without, this has to be my third purchase of this product because how much I use it and then it ends up running out fast! But I use a lot of this product because it’s the perfect contour shade, completely matte no shimmer what so ever. It comes in 3 different shades to suit a variety of skin tones, and the rich warm pigmentation of the product also gives a bronzy sculpted glow to the face. The bronzer is a duo which comes with a highlighter which I’m honestly not a massive fan of because it is so shimmery but it works if you literally tap the brush into the highlighter, it will work perfect with the contour shade then.

I hope you liked this review and took something back from it or even learned something about any of these bronzers.

What’s your favourite bronzer? Desperate to know so I can build on my collection.

Under The Weather

 

35a58099e421415b5d8bd0ba1faa4370 Hi Everyone!

I know I have been a bit MIA recently due to having the cold. I’ve been feeling like crap for the last week or so, thats why I wasn’t in the mood to blog because really my brain was not functioning properly, I feel like I’m slowly getting better and going to try and get into the swing of things again, I noticed every year this time I get really sick, I think it’s the weather change it does something to me!

Im going to share with you all just little things that have managed to cheer me up and make me feel a little bit better about myself this week.

1. Pinterest, I know it sounds really weird, how can a social media website make you feel better, but I love just searching for cute pictures and quotes on Pinterest that always seem to cheer me up! You should do the same if you’re feeling about down in the dumps. Tumblr is a good option too.

2. No makeup skin, personally I love no makeup skin all the time and if I could go everyday without having to wear makeup I totally would. Wearing no makeup makes your skin feel hydrated and clean. Exactly how I wanna feel when I’m not well.

3. Warm showers. I’ve never been one to have a bath instead of a shower, I totally prefer warm showers, but the occasional bath with a lush product wouldn’t hurt. Anyways, a warm shower just makes you feel relaxed and calm, whenever I’m sick especially I tend to get sore heads, a warm showers helps to sooth that pain.

4. The Xfactor, it’s that time of year again when the Xfactor comes back to our television screens and personally I love watching it, I feel like my saturday nights get a tiny bit better, me and my mum just sit and laugh in hysterics for ages at some of the ridiculous acts! That’s just a small way to cheer you up, plus a nice hot chocolate whilst you’re watching it will prove to be even better.

5. Going walks with my dog. I personally love walking my dog. My energy levels do decrease when I’m not well, but when I’m outside walking my dog for an hour or so the fresh air helps so much.

6. Sleep, and lots of it. Trust me it will get your energy back up and get rid of those bags!

Hope you are all having a great September so far, let me know what things you guys do when you’re not feeling great?
