The Junction, Antrim

I was recently invited down to check out The Junction, Antrim as part of their Connection Club Weekend.  The Junction is an amazing shopping destination situated about 20 miles from Belfast with not only over 30 retailers but an amazing 10 screen Omniplex cinema.  The Connection Club is a promotion that enables you to receive extra discounts, offers and exclusive events.  Think of it as a VIP card that allows you to save a little money while you shop – allowing you to shop more!  You can sign up for the Connection Club here and view what stores are available here.

Of course me being me, I quite literally ran straight to the beauty outlet as it has my name written all over it.  I went in fully confident that I would walk around and have a nosy at all the amazing offers however, as soon as my foot stepped over the threshold I completely lost all ability to think and went from the front to the back up and down the aisles telling staff that ‘this is amazing’ and obsessively congratulating a girl called Mags who keeps the lipsticks looking so neat on doing such a good job.  Mags, I am sorry.

View this quick video of me walking around the store and keep scrolling for a more in depth view of the offers available – perfect for dare I say the C word?  Christmas.

Thank you so much to The Junction and Beauty Outlet who gifted me with a voucher!  If you follow me on Instagram then you’ll see all the goodies I got!

As soon as you walk in there’s a fantastic beauty bar area with chairs and glorious light up mirrors surrounded by amazing offers.  A great area to sit and try on makeup!

I first had a rummage around at the foundations and while there is a huge variety o products I did however notice that there are not full shade ranges.  I was able to find my colours very easily and there is still a great range but you may have to sacrifice going a little lighter or darker if you cannot find your shade – but that’s okay, because they have bronzers.  One of my favourite foundations, Rimmel Lasting Finish foundation is available there and you can see my first impression of this foundation on my YouTube here.

I think my favourite part about walking around this store had to have been the lipstick section.  Not only was it just so satisfying to look at but the lipsticks were around the £1.99/£2.99 mark.  I mean, my Starbucks order costs more than that.  If you watched my Instagram stories then you’ll know that I got so overwhelmed by the lipstick aisle that I actually only left with two lipsticks and two lips liners.  It is just so unlike me.  I can’t wait to go back and buy more!

I felt like I was walking around Willy Wonka’s factory in this store, honestly.  Just look at all those brushes and beauty blenders?  I was in total heaven and all for a fraction of the price that you would pay in places like Boots and Superdrug.  I love getting things like these as little presents, if you were starting to think of mini gifts for *whispers* Christmas then these are all perfect!

unnamed (18)

Again, on the gift train – whether it’s a gift for yourself of you are in need of a present for someone these are amazing and come in the cutest packaging.  W7 were one of the main brands I seen in the beauty outlet and I have used some things from them before and they are actually pretty good, amazing for the price!  How amazing is this brush set below?

In addition to makeup and accessories they also have a great range of skincare, bath and body and fragrances so there really is something for everyone!  So looking forward to going back to the store and The Junction in general as all staff seem so friendly and The Junction is an amazing place to walk around.

Top 5 Blushers

The beauty world has become so obsessed with highlighters and bronzers that
we have forgotten about one very important part of our makeup routine – the
blush. I have always loved blush and if I am honest, probably have loved it a little
too much in the past. When I was 15 I definitely had that Aunt Sally look nailed.
Fast-forward a few years and a practice in application I finally see what the fuss
was all about.

Before I begin listing my favourite blushers let’s talk about what it does for your
face. Blusher has the power to actually brighten and lift your face and is the
perfect finish to create a beautiful makeup look. Blusher is classy and enhances a
real, natural face shape as opposed to ‘look at my natural sunken in cheekbones’
a la Kim K. As nice as that look can be, when done right, there’s something about
a blush that makes all the difference.

When I look for blushers I tend to buy fairly versatile shades that suit a variety of
skin tones so that I can keep them in my kit to suit everyone. Whatever your
preference be it matte or shimmery, there is always something out there to suit
you.

MAC ‘Melba’ Powder Blush, £19.50

31SzsTco9qL

I have always loved MAC’s blushers as their formula is perfectly creamy and they have an amazing variety of shades.  My most used shade is by far Melba and as it is a beautiful soft coral peach shade this blusher beautifully compliments a huge variety of skin tones.  It is super pigmented so just use a little each time you are using it.  With no shimmer it’s great for all skin types and ages and is a staple in my Make Up Kit giving a the skin a perfect glow.

NARS Blush ‘Orgasm’, £24

0607845040132 (1)

This blusher shouldn’t need any introduction as if you are familiar with blushes at all, you should have tried this one.  If you haven’t, what are you doing?  You owe it to yourself to try the blush that permanently tops the list as one of the best blushers on the market.  An iconic blusher that gives natural, healthy looking colour without looking too heavy and again, you only need a light application to give a beautiful colour.

Shop Here

Milani Baked Blush ‘Luminoso’, £10

MMBL-06_grande

These blushers are unreal and for £10 they are such a good quality!  It’s very hard to pick just one shade that I like from this range as I use them all and love them all.  As I tend to go for more coral colours with blush I tend to use ‘Luminoso’ the most.  Baked on Italian terracotta the powder is so finely milled that it delivers a smooth and silky application.

Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic ‘Ecstasy’, £30

zb_p

Charlotte’s range of blushers are my absolute favourite.  They scream luxury and everyone needs a little luxury in their make up bag!  Currently there are 6 powder shades to choose from and again, sorry I like the coral shades so my favourite is the shade ‘Ecstasy’ but there are colours to suit everyone.  I love having a glow from my blusher and with Light Flex Technology these blushers capture and reflect light again leaving your skin with a beautiful soft sheen.

Bare Minerals Gen Nude Powder Blush ‘Pretty In Pink’, £22

FE6465EA63086F15F787FDA1107247B2_3107648_7

Seriously blendable and buildable blushers this range from Bare Minerals is a staple in my own routine and in my makeup kit.  I’ve collected a few shades since they have launched however, I use ‘Pretty In Pink’ most often, a beautiful subtle pink shade and ‘Bellini Brunch’ which is a beautiful peach shade.  The formula is so creamy and glides on to the skin effortlessly without catching and giving the skin texture giving the skin a soft focus effect.

Top 5 Mascaras

A mascara is one of those products that nobody is ever done looking for the next best thing.  When you find a good powder or a good foundation, you stick with it for awhile but a mascara?  Be honest, how many different mascaras have you tried?  How many have you re bought because they were actually good?

Let me help you stop wasting your money with some of my tried and tested favourite mascaras.

Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes, £23

418030_in_pp

This mascara is one of those ones that is perfect for those of you who don’t like crazy, dramatic lashes.  Sounds stupid, you want a  mascara that does the most for you but this mascara does it, without giving you thick and unnatural looking lashes.  With a brush that has 5 grooves it deposits enough mascara to the base of your lashes, so that it pushes the lashes up and out.  The bristles themselves are so fine that they catch every lash ensuring fluttering, fluffy lashes.  My favourite thing about this mascara is that it doesn’t smudge.  I don’t know what is wrong with my eyes but the majority of mascaras that touch my eyes, fall down and smudge, this one doesn’t allowing it to last all day.

8ml

Lancome Hypnôse Volume-à-Porter, £25

i-022445-hypnose-volume-a-porter-1-940

I keep this as my ‘night out’ mascara.  It is perfect for amping up those lashes to give a sexy and seductive flutter.  I had used the Lancome Hypnôse Drama for years but I far prefer this mascara as it gives extra volume and glides on like a dream without feeling clumpy and doesn’t leave you with spidery lashes.

6.5ml

Max Factor False Lash Effect, £10.99

71x0R7jK6xL._SY355_

Again, another superb mascara for every day use.  No flaking and no clumping provides amazing longwear which is perfect for during the day as no one likes to look in the mirror on their lunch break and look like they just watched The Notebook.

I love the brush on this mascara as it applies just the perfect amount of product and never goes overboard.  It’s easy to remove as well, which is perfect for me as I have such sensitive eyes and vigorous removing of eye makeup is not good.

13.1ml – SO much product!

Estee Lauder Doublewear Zero Smudge Lengthening, £23

000090257

Boasting 15 hour wear this mascara is sure to survive all day with you.  Delivering voluptuous lashes, this mascara always gives me the most amazing length with my lashes.  I always use this mascara when I am going for a strong liner look, as the lashes lift above the liner line creating amazing Brigitte Bardot style eyes.

6ml

Clinique High Impact, £19

31ZLjCbDPGL

Last but certainly not least, Clinique’s High Impact mascara was one of the first premium mascaras I ever bought, I remember buying it in Boots and feeling like such a big girl not buying something like Miss Sporty.  This mascara adds maximum volume while defining and lengthening.  The brush and formula have been specifically designed to work together to create dramatic, thicker lashes.

7ml

Charlotte Tilbury Favourites

Charlotte Tilbury – a brand whose products make you utter an ‘ooh’ when you lift every product.  It is very easy  to get stuck in Charlotte’s Web when you stop by the counter and her products always leave you wanting more.  Not only is it a brand with beautiful, glimmering and not to mention addictive products but it is run by an absolutely amazing lady, Charlotte Tilbury (MBE!).

Charlotte Tilbury for those of you who don’t know is a living, breathing make up artist.  Her love of make up began when she was just 13 when she tried mascara for the first time.  I think we can all remember the very first time we played with makeup and the difference mascara made to our lives.  Throughout the years Charlotte has worked with the industry’s best and most creative from Mary Greenwell to Tom Ford and has gathered up an amazing amount of experience allowing her to become the World’s Number One Make Up Artist.  All her credits aside, at the end of the day she is an absolute BOSS and has created an absolutely amazing brand.

Warning! I have lots of favourite products…

Magic Cream, £70

til043_charlottetilbury_charlottesmagiccream_1_1560x1960-vifrk.jpg

Of course this one is going to appear on my list.  I have always been a skincare geek and as soon as Charlotte marched on to the market I had to get my hands on this little pot of goodness that promised amazing benefits for the skin.  I had heard lots about the cream before it was even out for sale as she used it on all of her amazing model and celebrity clients.  The reason I liked the sound of it so much is because it’s designed to suit everyone.  Do you ever go to discuss skincare at your favourite counter and there are SO many creams you don’t know what to pick?  Good news, Charlotte Tilbury has done the leg work for you and created a jar of magic that suits everyone and appeals to all skin types.

100% of users agreed that their tired and dull skin was transformed so you just know that this cream will be amazing.  Personally I have dehydrated skin that has a tendency to get very red when not cared for properly.  When I used this cream my redness just washes away to create a perfect base for makeup to be applied to.  I wouldn’t dare touch my skin with makeup unless this is applied.  The Hyaluronic Acid seals in moisture so your skin stays hydrated and supple throughout the day while the Rosehip, Camellia Oils and Vitamin E is what transforms your dull complexion leaving your skin bright and youthful.

Overnight Bronze & Glow Mask, £38

I_270245737_50_20170426

I have talked about Charlotte Tilbury’s sheet masks before however, this time I am going to talk about the Bronze & Glow Mask.  I never put fake tan on my face for fear of my skin drying out and considering I always have it on my body as I am so pale, my face in turn always looks ghostly white.  This mask is perfect for anyone similar to me with their tanning habits as it gives you the perfect sunkissed glow and you can use it as many times a week as you like depending on how dark you like your facial tan.  I tend to use it once every other night as I always like a faint colour on my skin.  You could use it once a week or every night, personal preference!

Not only does it do exactly what it says on the tin in giving you a perfect bronzed glow but Oat Kernel Extract actually reduces redness and soothes skin while protecting and hydrating the skin and Blackcurrant Seed Oil gives bio-mimetic conditioning to your skin ensuring a flawless finish each time.

Supermodel Body Highlighter, £45

23e9027e2a42a84726e9b96f3529adb6

Never before have I covered myself in a product that has made me stare at my own limbs so much.  Why should highlight stop at your cheekbones, you can highlight your whole body with this body shimmer?  Allow this cooling roller ball tip to glide effortlessly all over your body to coat yourself in liquid gold. Aside from making you look unbelievable there is so much going on under the surface of this product.  Containing FermiBlend Supermodel Body protects the collagen fibers in the skin making your skin look firmer and more toned.  It streamlines limbs and makes your skin look seriously smooth while caffeine detoxes the skin and diminishes any puffiness.

As if that’s not enough, it contains Aloe Vera to soothe and comfort while Menthol has a cooling sensation to help stimulate blood circulation.  Yeah, I know right?  Makes you want to buy 12 of them.

Watch Charlotte apply Supermodel Body here

Eyes To Mesmerise ‘Bette’, £22

bette-open_1

Meet my ‘oh crap, I’m running late’ product which is pretty much what I use on the daily.  I absolutely love this eyeshadow whether it’s on its own or as a base for one of Charlotte’s eyeshadow palettes on top it always looks effortlessly perfect.  Apply with your finger or a brush whatever you prefer for a gloriously bronzed lid.  This is my favourite shade from the range but there are plenty to choose from if bronzes and browns aren’t your thing.

The water infused formula has a cooling effect on the eyes so will never feel too thick or like you are wearing too much.  It doesn’t crease and doesn’t wear off, which is a triumph in itself for a cream eyeshadow pot.  Vitamin E hydrates making it absolute perfection for anyone with dryer lids also.  Stop, I know what you’re thinking – ‘but my eyes are too wrinkly for shimmers or creams.’  Number one, stop talking nonsense your eyes are beautiful and two, soft-focus illuminating pigments smooth over lines and imperfections for a more youthful finish.  You’re welcome.

Legendary Brows, £18.50

til078_charlottetilbury_legendarybrows_1560x1960-ifytf

There was a time when brows were just brows, hairy things above our eyes.  Then all of a sudden brows were massive, quite literally.  I am a fan of a more fluffier brow and considering I have barely any hair on my eyebrows this product was sent from heaven down to me to save my brows.  The brush is so fine that it picks up hairs you don’t even realise you have!  My makeup never feels complete without a few lashings of this on my brows.  It can be worn alone or alongside your other brow products but you know when you use something like a brown pencil, it almost flattens your hairs?  Using a brow gel will make them look nice and 3D and fuller and my brows never feel crunchy from too much product as you really need so little.

The gel contains volumising Magic Elasticizing Wax, nourishing Vitamin E, strengthening Castor Oil and natural pigments that lift and tint.

Watch Charlotte create amazing fluffy brows in seconds here

K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick, £24

745x945_0025_k.i.s.s.i.n.g_-_penelope_pink_-_packshot_swatch

I always seem to end up in the shades ‘Penelope Pink’ (pictured) or ‘Hepburn Honey’ but the entire range is stunning.  Really though, what sets Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks apart from the rest?  Aside from a beautiful array of shades the lipsticks contain a stunning blend of waxes that allow the lipstick to glide on without dragging across the lip and drying the lip out.  The light diffusing pigments gives your lips a multi dimensional finish leaving them looking full and luminous.

Charlotte has a wide range of lipstick formulas including Matte Revolution containing the ever so coveted Pillowtalk and the Hot Lips range so there really is something for everyone’s taste depending on the finish and colour you like.

Filmstar Bronze & Glow, £49

til019_charlottetilbury_filmstarbronzeandglow_lightmedium_1_1560x1960-rgbl8

Okay, so if any of you follow me on Instagram you will know by  now that I use this all day every day and it is my favourite product in my makeup bag let alone from Charlotte Tilbury.  It is hard to find a bronzer that doesn’t leave you resembling a wotsit so that’s why the Filmstar palette always features in my daily makeup routine.

The bronzer is a blend of pearl and pigment to help contour your face and give you that gorgeous sunkissed glow and the highlighter has a golden base which will flatter everyone .  If it’s a glow you’re after you can look no further than this palette as you are guaranteed healthy, radiant skin.

See for yourselves, watch Wayne Goss this time show you how to use it here

I have really had to reign it in talking about my favourites from Charlotte Tilbury as there are simply so many but there are my ride or die products from the brand.  Charlotte is no stranger to featuring in my previous blogs, you can read about the famous Airbrush Flawless Finish powder in my top 5 powders. and the Wonderglow in my top 5 primers for dry skin.

LQ Liquid Health Supplements – Skin, Hair & Nails

I was recently gifted a box of the LQ Liquid Health Skin, Hair & Nails and I don’t think I have even been so excited to try something out.  Liquid supplements and pill supplements are something I have never really dived into so I couldn’t wait to try these out.

lq-skin-bottle-box

The main question I had going into using these was Do Liquid Supplements Actually Work?  Well, let’s find out…

I received a box of the 10 Day Supply which you can purchase for £29.99, you can also purchase a 30 Day, £59.98 (save 30%) and 90 Day Supply, £175.44 (save 35%) in case you want to save a little money when you bulk buy.  They come in little 50ml test tube style bottles that make for easy drinking, they remind me of test tube shots!  They go down a lot easier than shots mind you, just maybe follow up with some water after.  With a fabulous scent of strawberries, real strawberries not like strawberry laces these are sure to give you a little boost whenever you take them.  I decided to use them every morning alongside my breakfast – they are not meal replacement so enjoy them alongside a healthy balanced diet to ensure you see the best results!

Containing Marine Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, Biotec, Resveratol and many more amazing ingredients these Liquid Supplements I knew I was going to see a difference in my skin and honestly I really did.  I didn’t notice anything for the first few days, but I am so impatient and a bit of a ‘I need to see results now’ kind of person.  After day 3, I woke up and honestly my first thought was ‘ooh, my hair looks shiny.’  With blonde hair it can be hard for your hair to look shiny as it’s already fairly light but I definitely noticed a difference.  When I got to work I was asked repeatedly if I had had my hair done and while the normal response was ‘I washed it ha ha‘ the response this time was ‘oh my god I tried these supplements.’  I noticed a difference in my hair first of all, but I would say it is different for everyone what you notice first.

So there’s me being all bizz with my shiny ass hair and on day 6 or so I happened to notice my nails.  Now, I have been getting acrylic nails done for  the last few years on and off so my nails are in a bit of state and honestly have a similar texture to paper.  It makes typing a blog post basically impossible without pain.  Fast forward a few days and I can definitely feel them stronger, not necessarily growing because it’s only been a few days but they 100% feel stronger.  I’d say if I used them for more than 10 days my nails would definitely strengthen up more and would maybe be able to stop with the acrylics!

I’ve never really had problems with my skin, thank you Lord but I have by no means  perfect skin.  From using these liquid supplements I geniunely have seen a difference in my skin especially with hydration.  I tend to notice how my skin reacts to new products by how my makeup sits on top.  My makeup has been sitting clearer and not coming off during the day, decreasing the need for a powder touch up.  I hate the thought of my makeup coming off (who doesn’t?) and that fact that I can drink something that stops that from happening? Sign me up.

I loved using these liquid supplements and actually think I will use them again.  I would recommend the 30 Day Supply as I do think a month of using these would see amazing results especially after the results I seen in just 10 days.  Perfect for before a special occasion, holiday or you simply want healthier skin, hair and nails!

You can view all the LQ Liquid Health Supplements here and the do a fantastic range of products!  Be sure to check them out.

BPerfect Cosmetics Stacey Marie MUA Palette

In an age where there are hundreds of thousands of palettes out there it is rare to come across something new and different.  Not often does a make up palette come along these days containing something that actually makes me squeal.  Enter Stacey Marie MUA’s collab with BPerfect Cosmetics.  The Carnival Palette retails for £39.99 and contains a wealth of shades from bright blues and pinks to deep purples and yellows.  Boasting 24 shades and 2 highlighters this palette is nothing short of amazing.

37093952_291199164760138_2658982556094955520_n(1).jpg

Stacey created this look for her demo at The Make Up Festival

Firstly a little background on BPerfect Cosmetics, a beauty brand that stormed on to the scene in 2013 that was created by Brendan McDowell.  Based in Belfast, Brendan aspired to become a creative, stand out brand oh my, did he succeed.  The brand is now available in over 1200 stockists in UK and Ireland, and has recently been made available on Beauty Bay – YAY – and for you local babes Paddy McGurgan’s Make Up Pro Store is now stocking the Carnival Palette.  If you don’t know who Stacey Marie is then you need to get yourself onto her Instagram and just look at some of her amazing work.  She can do things to an eyelid space that I never thought possible.  I am so happy that this amazing brand and amazing Make Up Artist have teamed up together and the palette is such a success.

I was invited to attend Stacey Marie’s Launch in Medicare, Forestside Belfast and had an absolute ball watching Stacey do her thing, created some masterpiece eye looks.  I was also kindly gifted the palette and haven’t been able to put it down since I got it.  I was so shocked at the payoff of all the colours as normally I find with bright colours they fade away to nothing when blended but I was pleasantly surprised at this palette.

37534208_321509975282202_6383575150054342656_n(1)

I used the shades Guilty, Lit, Wasted, Keen, Pink Me and Liqour to create this look inspired by another amazing Make Up Artist Keilidh Cashell, AKA Keilidh MUA.  You can find her look in her Instagram here.

Even though I have spoken mostly about the amazing bright colours it definitely appeals to someone who would want a natural look out of it too.  It’s also a fantastic palette for someone who would want to start going freelance or starting out as a make up artist as I can’t say it enough – it is just is an amazing palette.

Have you tried it yet? I would love to hear your thoughts!

Summer Ready Glowy Foundations.

Does anyone else scroll through their Instagram and look at all these gorgeous, glowing supermodel types and immediately want what they are wearing on their skin?  Well the good news is, thanks to the rise in popularity these foundations are readily available on pretty much every counter and from every brand out there.  The problem is, which ones are best?  As a self confessed make up obsessive, you just know I have them tried and tested so read on for my top picks for Summer 2018.

Chanel Vitalumiere, £40

816203

A beautifully hydrating makeup that boasts 8 hours wear to keep you looking fresh all day.  This foundation is a staple for that gorgeous Summery make up and even though it’s classed as a medium coverage it is so easily manipulated to sit lighter or even fuller if needs be.  With my redness in my skin it’s always an issue that that won’t be covered but with the colour correcting pigments infused inside that’s never an issue.  With hyaluronic acid and an SPF15 this is sure to become a favourite in your Summer makeup bag.  On the pricier side, I save this for thee most special events!

Nars Sheer Glow, £33

0607845060475

One of the first brands I saved up all my money for from my part time job and spent a clean fortune in Space NK was NARS.  Among that make up splurge I found myself purchasing this foundation as I was drawn in by the allure of perfect light coverage.  It’s amazingly natural and gives a sheer but buildable finish.  Packed full of anti-oxidents it will protect your skin while making you look and feel amazing.  Something to note however, there is no SPF in it so if you are someone who likes added protection make sure you have sun protection in your moisturiser.

Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder, £32

31xui3H5O5L._SY450_

My all time favourite foundation for beautiful, dewy skin.  I keep this as my kind of ‘day off’ style foundation for days where I am not doing an overly adventurous make up as it gives the effect of flawless skin without feeling like you are wearing anything.  This foundation is so versatile and still surprises me how much coverage I can get out of it as it is extremely buildable.  With a light, blendable and creamy texture it goes on like a dream no matter what your application technique and remains effortlessly glowy throughout the day.  Not only all of that but with an SPF15 you skin is sure to be protected all day.

*This is what I am wearing in the blog image*

Armani Luminous Silk, £42

3360372026112_v2

A silky, lightweight formula that glides on to the skin with seamless coverage that blends beautifully to give healthy, natural and glowing skin.  It sits comfortably on the skin but I do find however that I always need to use a powder to stop it moving around but that doesn’t bother me as I tend to use powder anyway.  When my skin is feeling a little dull this is what I tend to use as it instantly brightens and lifts the complexion, perfect if you haven’t caught as many zzz’s as you would like.

L’Oreal Paris True Match, £9.99

3600522862475_T1

I have spoken about this foundation before on my blog and on social media but it’s appearing again because I use it so so often.  It gives just enough luminosity without looking too shiny as the day goes on.  It’s a seriously blendable foundation that leaves no streaks or patchiness and is so comfortable to wear that it doesn’t feel like you are wearing much at all.

What foundations are your go to for Summer?  Send me a message, I would love to hear!
