Ride or Die Make-Up

rideordiemakeup

If you’re into the whole beauty scene you’ve probably already seen this tag done by everyone and their mother. However, for those of you that don’t know about it, Jaclyn Hill on Youtube started a tag on her ride-or-die products aka, her all time favourite product in each category.

Nobody actually tagged me BUT I thought it would be a great post to do, I’ve also linked any individual reviews I’ve done in the past if you want more in depth info. It’s going to be a long one, so get comfy and grab a notepad. Here we go!

Primer

I’ll be honest with you guys 99% of the time I don’t wear primer. I am yet to find a primer that I LOVE and does exactly what I want it to do, that is control oil, smooth out texture and improve wear of foundation. For that reason I haven’t chosen anything in this category.

Corrector- MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter Peach Lustre

This was an easy one for me. This product is lightweight, blends in easily and corrects dark undertones in the skin. Once it sets it doesn’t change the appearance of anything that is applied on top.

Foundation- MAC Studio Sculpt

I’m not a huge foundation person but there are two products which are holy grails for me. That is MAC Studio Sculpt and Estee Lauder Double Wear. However, when I think about which product I reach for when I want to look my BEST on a night out, it is this one. It doesn’t provide as much oil control but it does give amazing coverage and a real glow to the skin.

Tinted moisturiser- Estée Lauder Double Wear Light

This product is a recent discovery for me but I’ve formed a lifelong bond with it. I wear it every day to work. It takes a few seconds to blend in, gives sheer to medium coverage, gives good oil control and improves the texture of my skin too.

Concealer- Urban Decay Naked Skin

If there is one product that is my desert island product, it is this one. This concealer is at the top of many peoples lists and I can totally understand why. It provides great coverage for everyday use and when layered on top of a corrector it looks flawless. Also the formula is lightweight, hydrating and doesn’t crease that much at all.

Setting Powder- Ben Nye Banana

When I want to set my concealer and I don’t want it to budge or crease, this powder is the absolute best. I buy the compact version as I find loose powders to faffy but that’s just my personal preference.

Face Powder- Nars Pressed Setting Powder

This face powder is the most finely milled pressed powder I’ve tried to date. A little dusting of this goes a long way in setting my skin, blending out harsh lines, airbrushing my skin and giving great oil control.

Bronzer ELF Baked Bronzer Los Cabos

My ride or die bronzer was a bit of a surprise to be honest. I own a number of bronzers and they are all high end, apart from this one. When I sat down to think about what product makes me say “wow” to myself every single time I use it, it’s this product. The colour of this product gives me the most beautiful sun-kissed skin and the pearl finish makes my skin look smooth and absolutely the best it has ever looked. If there was one criticism for this product it is that it doesn’t last as long as my high end products, but I still LOVE it and will continue to re-purchase it.

Contour powder –theBalm Bahama Mama

When I want chiseled cheekbones or a jawline that can cut glass (lol) I reach for this product. It is very cool toned which perfectly mimics shadows on the skin. It also blends into make-up really easily so you can control how strong you want your contour to look.

Blush- MAC Peaches

This is a long time favourite blush of mine. Admittedly I haven’t used it in a while but it is one I will keep going back to. The colour is the perfect warm peach for my skin tone, the formula is blendable and long lasting.

Highlighter- Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Powder Candlelight

This was a really difficult choice for me. I love highlighters just like everyone else but this product is what I reach to come day or night. It is really finely milled, doesn’t have any tacky glitter in it and looks amazing in natural light, artificial light and especially under candlelight 😉

Eyebrows- Anastasia DipBrow Pomade

Again a  very easy category for me. Ever since this product came into my life I’ve been able to walk out the door confidently knowing my brows look great and will stay that way till I decide to take it off. It is incredibly easy to apply too which makes my mornings that much better.

Liquid Eyeliner- Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

I think I’m in denial, ever since I heard the Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner has been discontinued. It was the best eyeliner I’d ever used. It applied easily, was jet black, stayed on all day, no matter what. I know UD have come out with a new formula which I’m hoping is as good as that one.

However for the time being, the Kat Von D liner which I recently reviewed has quickly become a ride-or-die eyeliner. I much prefer brush liners over marker liners but this is probably the best one of the market. It is pigmented, applies smoothly and gives a clean line, also it lasts all day without fading, smudging or flaking.

Pencil Eyeliner

Again, I’m not going to put anything in this category as I rarely use pencil liners. Generally they close up my already small eyes. Having said that the only liners I own and I think I own 3 colours, are from Urban Decay and I am reluctant to try anything else.

Mascara Maybelline Lash Sensational

Mascara is a very difficult category for me, I rarely repurchase mascaras as I always like to try new ones out but there’s one that I’ve repurchased a number of times and it is the Lash Sensational. It gives tremendous length, volume, curl and does not flake or smudge at all, even with my oily eyelids.

Eyeshadow primer– MAC Prep + Prime 24-Hour Extend Eye Base

When I say this product primes, it primes. It is perfect under any eyeshadow, pigment, eyeliner. Doesn’t crease, doesn’t budge. Bulletproof.

Eyeshadow paletteCharlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita

I absolutely adore this palette. It contains the four most gorgeous warm shades which can be worn a number of ways. My favourite colours are the warm orange and that shimmery gold, omfg. The formula is blendable and lasts all day on the lids.

Lipstick Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick 1993

Lipstick is one of my favourite make-up products, so to whittle it down to just one was really, really difficult. I thought about what colours I wear year-round, which are mostly neutrals, and also I thought about the formula which feels most comfortable to me. This lipstick from Urban Decay goes with most make-up looks whether cool toned or warm but the best part is absolutely the formula. Apart from the Nars Audacious lipsticks, I’m yet to try another formula that feels as creamy as this one does and one that lasts long, whilst not drying out my lips.

Setting Spray– Mac Fix +

Before I started using Fix + I really didn’t believe a product would make such a difference to your skin. After I’ve finished a full face of make-up I spritz this on and it gives my skin such an incredible glow, it really “fuses” the make-up into my skin. It doesn’t give oil control but the finish is so perfect I don’t actually mind.

That’s all for this post. What do you guys think of my ride or die products? Do we share any of the same favourites? Comment below and let me know!

My Current Make-Up Collection & Storage

makeupcollectionfull

It is no secret that I LOVE make-up. At the present time I’ve accumulated a collection that is probably a little bit larger than the average person but maybe pales in comparison to some bloggers I’ve seen. Day to day I don’t actually have the time to apply a full face of make-up, however I like having the option of changing up my look when I have a bit more time on my hands.

justjaybeautymakeup

As you can see in the picture above I store my make-up on my desk (Micke desk from Ikea). I bought the clear plastic drawers from Muji, there is one with five drawers and one with two which is slightly deeper. The two drawer purple box on the shelf above is something I bought many years ago from M&S. The two ceramic mugs I keep my brushes in were a gift from a family friend. I put lentils in the bottom to keep the brushes upright. I organise my make-up pretty hap-hazardly but I’d like to think there’s some structure in how I’ve placed thing.

So without further ado, here is my collection, ENJOY!

My Make-up Transformation

makeuptransformation

Hello beauties! Recently I’ve been seeing a lot of make-up transformation posts in the beauty bloggersphere so I decided to put on my brave face and show you my make-up transformation. The picture on the left is of me without make-up, yes I know I look hella tired haha! The picture on the right is after make-up. No filters or editing have taken place in either.

I genuinely enjoy the process of putting on make-up and playing around with different looks by matching it to my mood and outfit, I’d say it’s one of the things I love about being a woman. However, that’s not to say I don’t like the way I look without it. Overall, I quite like my features and use make-up to enhance them; my favourite feature is my skin which I invest a lot of time into keeping it healthy and clear. The only thing I’d say I really dislike are the pesky hereditary dark circles which make me look a bit sick and tired! Also my eyebrows are in the process of growing out after years of over plucking so I have some bald spots in them (oops).

The look above is a simple one I’ve been wearing a lot recently as it takes less than 15 minutes to do and it makes my skin look so warm and glowly, perfect for the Summer.

Products used:

Foundation – MAC Studio Sculpt (NC44) + Estee Lauder Double Wear (4N2)

Concealer – L.A. Girl Pro-Conceal (Medium Beige)

Setting Powder – Nars Pressed Powder (Mountain), Ben Nye Pressed Powder

Eyebrows- Anastasia DipBrow Pomade (Ash Brown)

Mascara – Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde

Bronzer – Elf Baked Bronzer (Los Cabos)

Highlight – MAC Cream Colour Base (Hush)

Lipstick – Gerard Cosmetics (1995)

So to all beauty bloggers reading this post I invite you to show me your make-up transformations. It can be a bit scary posting an “au naturel” picture of yourself on the interwebs for the whole world to see, but feels incredibly liberating at the same time.

#MOTD – Bronze Eyes + Peach Lips

DSC00534

Hello everyone! This weekend I wanted to wear a quick, fresh, warm make-up look that would be wearable during the daytime and would withstand the warm humid weather we’re currently experiencing in London. So without further ado here’s how I created this look.

DSC00554

For the base I used my new Dior Airflash foundation in 400 Honey and buffed it into my skin with a buffing brush. For my concealer I took my trusty MAC Pro-Longwear concealer in NW35 and blended around my eyes using the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.

My eye make-up was done using the Heaven & Earth palette from MUA and MACs “Rule” Eyeshadow. I first took Rule (warm orange) and placed this in the crease as my transition colour. I then put Canyon (warm medium brown) from the palette all over the lid. I used Bedrock (cool dark brown) in the outer V and used Golden Sand (warm gold) on the first third of the eyelid and blended out. I made sure all the colours blended in seamlessly and cleaned the edges using a Q-tip. I primed my eyelids with Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin. I didn’t wear eyeliner this time but simply curled my lashes using the Shu Uemera eyelash curlers and put two coats of DiorShow mascara on. My eyebrows were filled in as usual using Anastasia DipBrow Pomade in Ash Brown.

DSC00522

For my cheeks I used theBalms Bahama Mama bronzer and Mary Lou Manizer as the highlight. I skipped blush for this look.

DSC00565

DSC00505

To complete the look I chose one of my current favourite lipsticks which is “Mocha” by MAC and topped it with “Salmon” from Gerard Cosmetics. This lip combo brought out the shape in my lips and made them pop! To set my make-up I used my Nars pressed powder in Mountain.

I really like the completed look as it complements my skin tone perfectly. What are your favourite looks to wear in the Summer? Comment below and let me know.

#MOTD – Spring Daytime Glam

DSC00336

Hello everyone, I hope you’re all having a fabulous bank holiday weekend. Don’t you find that having just one extra day off work can have such a positive effect on your mind and body?!

I was out and about for the whole of yesterday and because I had some extra time to get ready I went for a glamorous yet wearable daytime look. I really liked the end result because it was a Spring appropriate look that lasted ALL day.

DSC00422

For the base I used my current favourite foundation Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation, 4N2 Spiced Sand and blended a small amount around my face. To erase my panda eyes I used L.A. Girl Pro-Conceal in Medium Beige in a triangle shape under my eyes and took it onto my eyelids as well. I didn’t powder my face as the foundation dries matte, so I just dusted some of my Ben Nye Pressed Banana Powder on the under eyes to stop the concealer from creasing.

For the eyes I used colours from the Makeup Revolution I Heart Chocolate Palette. To ensure my shadow didn’t budge I primed my eyelids first with Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin.

makeuprevolutionchocolatepalette

First I blended “One More Piece” as my transition colour in the crease of my eyelid and placed “Thank Friday” all over the lid. I then took “Love Divine” into the outer third of the eye and blended out. To deepen the colour a bit I took “Love Tom” into the outer V and blended out. To finish I used a bit of “Smooth Criminal” on the eyelid and “More” as a brow bone highlight.

For eyeliner I used my trusty Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Liner in Perversion and for mascara I used Bourjois 1 Volume Seconde Waterproof for the top lashes only. I actually never use liner on my waterline or any product on my bottom lashes because it closes up my eyes and doesn’t suit my eye shape. My eyebrows were filled in with my current obsession, Anastasia DipBrow Pomade in Ash Brown.

For the cheeks I went with MAC Ambering Rose which is such an amazing colour that adds warmt and a fresh pop of shimmery pink to the cheeks. To add extra glow I brushed my cheekbones with Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Powder in Candlelight.

To finish of the complete look I chose Bobbi Brown lipstick in Rose which is one of my all time favourite lipsticks.

Here are more pictures of the final look, hope you like it 🙂

theBalm Bahama Mama Bronzer – Review and Swatch

IMG_3205

I think the name of this product is deceiving in the sense that I don’t believe this is a bronzer, but actually a sculpting or contour powder. I bought this from Feel Unique for a sale price of £13.50 which I think is really well priced considering I was going to buy the Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder for £35.

Bahama Mama comes in really pretty packaging, it has an outer cardboard sleeve and I love the funky artwork. The bronzer itself has a mirror in the top and a magnet to close.

IMG_3206

The colouring of this bronzer is the best part. It is a very cool toned brown which means when you apply it to contour your face it actually mimics a real shadow. This looks far more natural than a warm (orange) tone bronzer. I was hesitant to buy this product in the first place as I wasn’t sure if it would show up on my skin. It is not massively pigmented on me and I have to apply a few layers for the colour to show through, however on lighter skin tones (may be too dark for pale/very fair skin) this will be perfect. The texture is 100% matte and doesn’t contain any shimmer.

IMG_3209

This is actually the perfect product for someone who is new to contouring (like me), it’s pretty much fool proof as it blends really easily and it’s too harsh in terms of colouring.

IMG_3172

Ooh look at those cheekbones!

IMG_3179

This bronzer is a winner for sure, I’d recommend this to anyone looking for a fuss free sculpting powder.

Maybelline Instant Anti-Age The Eye Eraser Concealer (Nude) – Review

IMG_2837

Hey lovelies! I picked this concealer up in Superdrug the other day for £7.99. To be honest I’m a bit confused because I’m not sure whether this concealer is the same as the much talked about “Instant age-rewind concealer” by Maybelline, but perhaps they’ve change the name for the UK? If anyone knows comment below! The colour range for this concealer is a bit dissappointing, there was only two to choose from and this is the darkest.

This concealer is said to instantly conceal dark circles and fine lines because it contains goji berry extract to care for the skin around the eyes.

To dispense the product you have to twist the top until product comes out of the sponge. Initially I wasn’t sure about the sponge as it could harbour bacteria in it, however on the packaging it says this  concealer has an anti-microbial system which doesn’t require any cleaning. The sponge applicator allows a nice even distribution of product.

IMG_2838

 L-R: Without concealer, application, blended out

As you can see from the pictures above the colour is a little bit too light for me but it is very highly pigmented and managed to conceal all the darkness. I like that this colour has a yellow tone giving my undereyes a highlighted effect. Once I applied my powder to set my undereye the colour evened out a bit more to match my skin tone. What was really impressive was that this concealer didn’t crease at all under my eyes throughout the day. There was also not a lot of fading throughout the day.

I think I’ll be using this concealer more for highlighting purposes because of the light colour, it blends easily and gives nice coverage for such a lightweight forumula. Definitely a great drugstore concealer.

Jane Iredale Amazing Base SPF 20 Loose Mineral Foundation (Latte) – Review

IMG_2830

Spring/Summer is coming! This is my favourite time of the year but my skin doesn’t always agree with the heat. I have combination skin and even during the coldest weather my T-zone gets so oily you could fry an egg on it. During the summer any liquid foundation just melts off my face making my skin look and  feel gross.

A lot of oilier skin gals use mineral foundation during the warmer months.  I needed something that has a matte finish, fragrance-free,  contains physical sunscreen and doesn’t contain talc. Cue Jane Iredale Amazing Base!

I bought this foundation from Treat Your Skin for £29.95. There are 17 shades to choose from with cool/neutral/warm tones, I am an NC44 in MAC and I chose the colour “Latte”.  Luckily this is the perfect match for me.

Taken from the Jane Iredale website Amazing Base Loose Powder Foundation is:

“A loose mineral foundation that gives a sheer to medium coverage. Made from micronized minerals, free of synthetic chemicals, oil free and weightless. A foundation, powder, concealer and broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 20 UVB/UVA. Conceals redness and diffuses appearance of fine lines and pores with soft focus effect.”

Packaging: This is probably the worst part of the foundation. I poked holes in the top of the sticker like advised but find the product difficult to dispense. If I take the sticker off, too much product will fall out.

Formula: I am really impressed with this formula. The sunscreen components are Titanium Dioxide 14%, Zinc Oxide 6% which gives broad UVA and UVB protection. There is Dimethicone present to give the foundation a nice application.  Plankton Extract, Algae Extract which soothes and nourishes skin. Also the product is Vegan friendly, cruelty free.

Fragrance: There is no added fragrance in this powder making it suitable for sensitive/ acne-prone skin.

Texture and application: This powder has a semi-matte finish but is surprisingly pigmented, you can get between light and medium coverage. With mineral foundation it’s good to work in layers so dispense a bit of product and build up coverage.  I used my Bobbi Brown Face Blender Brush (not a great brush by the way- too scratchy and falls out).

Finish: On the skin this powder feels dry on my cheeks within the first hour of use until the natural oils come through, then it looks and feels amazingly skin-like. This foundation doesn’t looks ashy on my skin but actually gives it a nice warmth.

Longevity: This product lasted around 8 hours on me before it started fading, it did allow oil to come through on my T-zone after 4 hours but not nearly as much as normal.

I must admit I was skeptical about the coverage I could get with just a powder but I am fully converted. During the day-time I want something to even out my skintone but not look heavy or clog my pores, especially in hot weather. I reckon this little tub will last the duration of the British warm weather ( which isn’t too long to be honest). I 100% recommend this to anyone who is oily/combination, acne-prone, sensitive and wants to use a light-coverage mineral foundation with natural and effective ingredients.

Below are some pictures of me wearing this foundation today.

Drugstore Haul

IMG_2782

I went to Superdrug today for one item and well …this happened LOL. I found a couple of cool make-up things that I’m excited to try.

1) MUA Pro Palette Elysium £6.00. This palette has a nice mix of matte and shimmery eyeshadows leaning towards the pinker side. It also comes with a double ended eyeliner/highlighter pencil. I’m really excited to try this palette to create some girly spring looks. If you like Urban Decay Naked Palette 3 then this might be a nice dupe.

2) MUA Eyeshadow Palette Heaven And Earth £4.00. This is also a nice neutral shimmer palette again fantastic for the daytime. There’s lots of pretty golds in here which would look really nice in the sunshine ^_^

3) Maybelline Colorstay Stripped Nude Lipstick 728 Honey Beige £6.99. I got this lipstick as I actually don’t own any nudes in my collection. It’s a nice brown-nude with a satin finish.

4) Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Waterproof mascara £9.99. I need a new mascara and I got this after a recommendation from a friend who said it was amazing. Will probably do a full review later.

5) Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer Nude £7.99. This concealer gets a lot of love online, I’m interested to see if it performs better than the Maybelline Fit Me concealer, I will probably do a full review on this too.

6) Sleek MakeUp Brow Perfector DARK BROWN £4.99. This is my first eyebrow gel ever! I’m intrigued to see what kind of a difference this makes to my eyebrows.

I didn’t go too wild at the drugstore today thankfully, I’m so broke now it’s unreal (come on payday!!!)

What products have you been buying at the drugstore recently? Comment below and let me know!
