Makeup Revolution Review

Hey y'all,
Today I am doing a very exciting Makeup Revolution review, this is also a collaboration post that I'm doing with an amazing blogger called Cat that I met, and who has become a very good friend of mine! So, I absolutely advise you to head on over to her blog and give it a little read. I'll leave the links bellow!






So on the top of my list is the Makeup Revolution London-Ultra Eyeshadows Flawless. This is a ultra thin and sleek black palette,with rose gold writing. Inside we have 32 eyeshadows ranging from matte to shimmer, it will come with a plastic film ontop with the names of each eyeshadow. There is a long mirror above the shadows which is very handy! 
When applying the eyeshadow I was happily surprised with the outcome, the matte eyeshadows are very visible when applied, although I did notice that I had to apply more of the shimmer shadows for it to be more visible and bolder. Overall I really enjoyed this palette, the eyeshadows are a great quality and don't seem to be cheaply made, the palette itself is at an amazing price for just £8! 








I also got the Makeup Revolution London-Blush & Contour palette. Again this is in the same style as the eyeshadow palette, I got this blush palette in Hot Spice. Inside there is a mirror on top and 8 shades, shimmer & matte, there is also a merged baked blusher and a merged baked highlighter. This palette has a very good visable outcome, and is easy to apply. I personally love the highlighter and merged baked blusher! The blushers are very warm tones and I like them a lot! This palette is £6






Next I have The Matte Effect-Cover & Conceal, concealer. This is a stick concealer in no.03 light.This concealer is easy to apply, and gives a good coverage . It's not too drying on the skin which is always good! It covers and conceals imperfections quite well. It again is great value for money at only £1!! Bargain if you ask me!





Lastly I got Makeup Revolution London-Amazing Volume mascara, I love this mascara so so much, I got it in the colour black. It makes my eyelashes super long and spreads out lashes evenly. This mascara doesn't leave my lashes too clumpy either! It has a rubber wand which in a sort of rounded oval shape! For its price it is an extremely good mascara and is almost as good as bigger  brands such as bourjois! This was around the £2 mark






Well that is my Makeup Revolution haul & review, please make sure you go and check out the lovely & gorgous Cat, to have a look at what Makeup Revolution products she has bought! 
thank you so much for reading, comments/opinions welcome!

What's In My Makeup Bag? (Essentials)


Everyone likes being nosy, no matter how much you deny it, be it eavesdropping on someone's conversation, peeping into the hot boys window next door to simply just have a nose in what someone bought or own. We love to have a sneak peak into someone's life, so I am going to share with you today what is in my makeup bag.
First off here is my makeup bag, this is what it looks like.




 It is by Louis Vuitton. I have had this bag for a very long time now and I think I am in need of a new one (one day) I love the size of this one as I like to pop my essentials in and then throw it in my handbag, without it taking up the entire bag!

Opening up my makeup bag my first item is
Foundation
I am using the L'Oreal Infallible 24H foundation in Natural Rose 125.
I really love L'Oreal foundations, they have a wide selection of shades and I'm really enjoying the coverage and the way it sits on my face. I think the smell of it is lush, I don't know why I like it so much.






Mascara
By NYC called Sky Rise this is just a standard mascara, there's not much to complain about its quick and easy to apply, has a long wand and is quite slim.




Concealer 
By Essence called Stay Natural in the shade natural nude 03. I'm going to be perfectly honest, this is not the beat concealer I have used, but its cheap & cheerful, does the job in tricky situations.



Liquid Eyeliner
I like to carry around liquid eyeliner just in case of last minute/unexpected events such as a party or dinner/lunch date. (I don't normally wear liquid eyeliner on a everyday basis) so I find that if I have to go somewhere I like to put this on so it looks like I made a bit of an effort! I am using Maybelline Master Duo Liquid Liner




Eye Shadow
I have the NYC HD Color, there are four colors in this little pallet. I liked this pallet because they are quite natural & basic shades. I like to bring this for a quick touch up on the eyes or brows. I use the brown mixed with the color next to it to fill in my eyebrows.




Powder
In then have Me Me Me Flawless Loose Powder this is great to have around for setting my foundation and keeping it in place. Also great for fighting back any oiliness.
This is a really good loose powder to have!





Brushes
Lastly I bring 3 brushes with me. The first brush is my Bellium Tools 781 eye shadow brush.





Secondly my Bare Essentials Flawless Face brush





Finally my angled brush by Eco Tools. I use this for my brows and to apply eye shadow on my water line.



So there you have it folks, its all a bit of a squeeze but there's an insider on what's in my makeup bag.
Please let me know what's in your makeup bag??
Hope you enjoyed this

My Everyday Makeup Routine

For my everyday makeup I like to try and keep it light, simple and not too over dramatic.
I start things off with a clean bare face. I then go ahead and moisturise my skin. This is the most important step in my opinion as it puts lost moisture back into the skin. I also find that makeup sits better when moisturised.

After I have moisturised I will apply concealer on the dark circles around my eyes and on any imperfections/blemishes I may have on that day. I then just lightly pat it onto and around the areas where have been applied.
I was using the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer, but sadly ran out. So I am currently using Essence Stay Natural concealer in number 03 soft nude.
















I then apply my foundation with a flat faced brush in a downward motion so that foundation doesn't get caught in the little baby hairs. I blend all the way to my ears, hair line and neck/jawline.
I am using the L'oreal Infallible 24H foundation in 125/ natural rose.
May I also note, this smells like summer!




Next I will go ahead with eyes, I will firstly apply Urban Decays Eye Primer Potion and then sticking with Urban Decay, use the Naked one pallet. Going for quite a soft natural look I would use Virgin mixed with Sin.












I then will use a little bit of highlighter on the brow bone, I use Benefits High Beam


After the eye shadow is applied I will then apply mascara on top and slightly on lower lashes, I find this gives me more of a open eye look, as I have quite long and thick eyelashes.
I am using Maybelines Great Lash mascara in colour blackest black.

 

BROWS my eyebrows are so important to me, I can't go anywhere without filling them in, I use eye shadow to fill them in, I use NYC HD Colour in number 815 Best of Broadway. I mix two colours together as I feel this gives me the best result with matching the colour of my brows. I use a angled brush to do this.


After the eyes are all done I will quickly powder  my face with Me Me Me Flawless Loose Powder. This just sets my foundation and gets rid of any oiliness.


I will then throw on some bronzer on the cheekbones to just inject some colour into my face. I am using Essence Matt Bronzing Powder in number 01 natural. Unfortunately I dropped it and now it has formed into a crumbly powder, it still does the trick though!



Last but not least I will apply some lippie to make my lips stand out. I am using an Essence lip stick in number 01 and it is called Coral Calling.



I hope you enjoyed this blog post.
