Summer Make Up For Darker Skins

Last year I found a brand of make up that I had never tired before and having darker skin myself I find the high street brands are too ashy once applied onto darker skin. I tried the French brand Make Up Atelier Paris and was extremely happy with the results! They have a foundation shade for every skin tone and it blends really easily on the skin, plus no ashy after effect. The great thing is its now available in the UK too. I use this make up personally and professionally!

My Favourite Beauty Finds of 2011

I love all things make up and beauty. Here are some of things that i will be using for a long time to come. They are not only amazing but they are part of my daily routine or make up kit!

In no particular order:

Model in A Bottle – I absolutely love this product. Its the best setting spray ever. If you want your make up to last all day then this is for you. I use it on myself and its part of my kit:

Zaggora – Back in the summer i came across a new company called Zaggora on Twitter. They had a products called Hotpants that claimed to make you lose 2 jean sizes in 2 weeks. I thought i would enter their competiton and see if i could win a pair. When they arrived i wore them everyday for 2 weeks and to my amazement i lost 7lbs in 2 weeks! Its stayed off too! I was over the moon to be part of their advertising campaign as well:

Niki’s Organic Balm – I have had a bad neck and back for years which comes with my chosen profession. I don’t complain, but i have discovered an instant cure for it. It comes in the form of a balm so i can take it with me everywhere. Within minutes of using this balm i could turn my head which i hadn’t been able to do for 2 weeks.

M2 Beaute – When i started using M2 Beaute eyelash activating serum my eyelashes grew so much that people noticed the difference. I have to say despite the price tag this is the best eyelash growth product i have used. As a contact lense wearer it is the only lash growth product that didn’t sting my eyes when i used it. Its a must have!!

Sephora Jumbo Liners – These are like eyeshadow in the form of a pencil. They are sold as jumbo eyeliners but can be used for eyeshadow too. These are great for speed and quick touch ups. Its such a shame we don’t have a store here in the UK! I have used these when i’m in a hurry and love them for that. They fit easily in your handbag too.

Glossy Box – This is a great way to trial new products without paying out for something you might not like. You pay £10 per month plus P&P and you get a gorgeous gift wrapped box of delights. I haven’t had anything i don’t like so far in mine. The Christmas box was red they are normally pink ones.

Make Up Atelier Waterproof foundation – I have tried out so many foundations and love them all but i have to say i really do love this one. It really is waterproof and stays on. It still has a really dewy look to it when its on too.
