My Everyday Foundation

I thought i'd do a nice little post just to show you all what foundation and brush I use on a daily basis! I tend to stick to using the same foundation products for the everyday look for quite some time until I decide I want to change it up and venture out and try new things - so i thought this would be an easy way to show you what I'm currently using and loving.

Now ALL three of these items are actually very new to me, I've only been using them now for around 3 weeks now and I have fallen in love with them and they all make the perfect team. I feel my face looks very fresh with a great coverage but definitely not cakey at all, which I love and can actually be difficult to find that foundation that will give you exactly what you want but I now have found it using these products together..

For application I tend to use the Urban Decay naked skin foundation first and then use the Mac studio fix foundation on top - I don't use concealer when using these together as I find I don't actually need the extra coverage as together they give a really nice flawless complexion.

What are you favourite everyday foundations?

Dirty Looks Full Head Triple Weft Hair Extensions Review

Before I begin I just want to point out I did infact dye my hair extensions and so the colour they are now is just from a box dye! 

Honestly, I am so obsessed with hair extensions - I hate being without them, they are a god sent and when I came across these extensions I was soo excited to try them! I have tried many extensions over the past couple of years but at the moment these are currently at the top of my favourites list, I would 100% recommended these if you're starting out with extensions it would put you on the best track for the natural look as the quality is amazing, I know a lot of people will start using a cheaper alternative but then just go off using hair extensions completely because they go frizzy as soon as you apply heat or brush them or anything really aha and its just not great and its regretful (trust me I know).. But with these you will be a lot more pleased with your results.

I received my hair extensions in a cute little double pouch which I think was the cleverest idea I have seen.. Other extensions I have ever bought always been ones in the long pack so its the length of the extensions, which is quite an awkward shape - definitely loved this packaging as it was small and an easy fit for the letter box! As it is a double pouch, they actually provide you with a sample piece which is separate from your full head of extensions, so you can take a look at the length and colour etc. before actually opening the other side in case it is a wrong match and you need to send it back, so its perfect for hygiene reasons also.

The colour I went for was 'California highlights' in length 20-22 inches, reason I went for this was because at the time I was actually dying my hair blonde but didn't end up liking the colour on me so I went back to a light brown which I am very very happy with! I was really impressed when browsing the website as there is such a wide range of different colours you can chose from, so I definitely think there would be something for everyone! I was obsessed with the highlighted colours as I thought it was such a good idea, to have the sort of mixed shades I find it makes it looks alot more realistic and natural against your hair rather than going down completely into one whole shade -really helps to blend them in.

The greatest thing about these extensions is the quality - they're perfect, I couldn't be happier they feel amazing and even after applying heat as I wanted to curl them they still felt amazing,. good as new! Hopefully they last me a long time and I really think they will, I know I will be purchasing again at some point when I need new ones as I am so impressed with the quality and thickness as I got the triple weft so they are that much thicker, this meaning they are triple the thickness of one singular hair piece. I am not a big fan of getting hair extensions that are thin as I think they stick out a lot next to your own hair and makes them obvious but the thickness with these blends in really well with my hair and hides nicely within them!

When I was dying my hair extensions I was so so scared they was going to turn out patchy and completely ruin the extensions but they actually turned out really well, I was so happy with them! The quality still feels amazing and they look good as new :-)

I am always interested trying new hair extensions, let me know your favourites!

November Favourites

So since I've not been blogging in so long and I'm now starting again at the beginning of December I thought the best post to start off on will be to share the things I've been loving through out November, this way I can give you a little catch up on what I was using last month/recently that I may not get round to mentioning!

Vaseline Spray & Go Body Moisturiser
This is my all time favourite body moisturiser by far! The thing that makes it my favourite is how it is just an easy spray bottle and it will be done within minutes. I have always been so lazy whenever it comes to body lotions as I just hate having to apply it myself, whereas with this spray, I can just spray all over and give it a quick rub in - it's so easy. I have this in 'cocoa radiant' and it smells absolutely amazing, cocoa butter is one of my favourite scents especially for body lotions, honestly I would happily wear this scent for a perfume, I love it!

L'oreal True Match Foundation in W4 Golden Natural
I had this at one point but only really used it a few times and then gave it to my mum as I wasn't using it, so at the start of November I thought I'd give it a go again and I've been enjoying using it.  This foundation has a very silky, flawless finish with a light to medium coverage, if you was looking for more of a full coverage I would definitely use this with a good concealer and a nice powder to compliment it as I do! It would be lovely to wear alone also if you are looking for a more light and natural coverage.

Mac Pro Longwear Concealer in NC20
I have heard so many people rave about this concealer and so I have finally got round to it myself! I absolutely love using this concealer over my foundation as a highlight, whereas to hide blemishes etc. I prefer to use the Cover FX Cream Concealer (which I will definitely get round to doing a post on at one point). As for this it goes on so lovely over foundation and as I have chosen a shade lighter than my foundation, this makes it perfect to highlight the areas I apply it to. I would 100% say a little goes a long way with this concealer, I actually always find more comes out than what I actually need but this is due to the way the pump is which can be annoying because I hate to feel a little gets wasted everytime, boo hoo.

Sleek True Colour Lipstick in Cherry
I am absolutely obsessed with red lipsticks and I hate being without a red lipstick on my lips! I bought this back in August and I have recently been wearing it day in day out for the past month, it is a darker shade of red and so is perfect especially during the autumn and winter seasons. It isn't extremely matte which I am very happy about as I hate that matte feeling on the lips, it is more of a sheen finish but definitely isn't too glossy. I know I will still be using this throughout the December month!

theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter
In all honesty this is the first highlighter I have ever actually tried and I have fallen madly in love with it! I feel like this is always a must now, although I am still yet to buy a decent brush to apply this with as I have been using a fan brush for the time being. The pigmentation of this highlighter is absolutely amazing and a soft sweep is really all you need, its great and looks stunning. I love this for more of a glow and I feel it takes away that sort of blandness from your face, if that makes sense hahah!? Definitely completes any make-up look.
