Okay so for a long time I stopped wearing foundation simply because I just couldn’t put up with trying to constantly find a shade that matched my skin tone, I am very pale and searching for the perfect foundation for me is a pain! If I buy the wrong one I can end up looking orange and I myself prefer the natural look and I go for liquid foundation because I find it more better personally for me, so I have always searched for a foundation that ticks all my boxes:
Natural looking coverage
Covers spots efficiently
Covers dark under eye circles
Not too thick
Closest shade to my skin tone
Not to expensive
So like many girls I find looking for foundation tiresome and something which I gave up on a few months back, I have only really been using cover sticks and light powder. But the other day I was in Boots and I decided to give this new foundation I saw a go, It’s called On The Spot Foundation by Seventeen and it apparently gives you clearer skin in 4 weeks!
Now sometimes when I get very under the weather or stressed like many I tend to get spots and I hate them, but this foundation apparently gives clearer skin in 4 weeks which was a definite selling point for me. Not to mention they did a very light fair pale colour which when I tested it, it matched my skin tone perfectly! – SUCCESS. It wasn’t thick and when I applied it, it rubbed in perfectly and gave me and all round clear and fresh complexion plus it was cheap in regards of pricing at only £5.
Also I managed to find probably the most effective mascara I have used in a long time! It is called Scandal Eyes By Rimmel and I love it. The brush is big and thick but not too large that it makes application hard. You don’t even need to use more than one mascara when using this as it gives lashes a big impact look and my eyelashes look super long (Mine are naturally tiny) so this is a recommended buy!
I brought this about a week ago in a local beauty store because I was getting fed up of my lipstick not staying all day and I love beautiful vibrant lips!
The shade I got was in Kiss which is like a dark pinkish/natural sort of shade I guess it could be said, I had a tough time picking which one out of the collection was closest to my natural lips and it happened to be this one because my lips are naturally quite dark pink anyway.
So once I got home I excitedly tried it on and found that it was super easy to apply to my lips and wasn’t bulky or thick either like some others. Because it is shaped as if it was a pencil it makes it easy to draw the outline of your lips which is something that most girls dream about! Instead of fussing over smudges or uneven lines or application.
I also love the taste and smell of it as well, sounds pretty weird and I’m not sure if that’s a feature of the product or just me – but something that smells good and doesn’t leave a horrid taste in your mouth if it accidentally gets in there is a win by my standards.
Well anyway with long lasting durability, great easy application and beautiful shade of colours I’d rate this quite highly.
So I haven’t blogged in a few days and that’s because I have been unintentionally busy! As you all know I had a job interview in the Easter holidays which is why I had to stay up north, I passed the interview with flying colours and got hired only to finally start my first day on Wednesday and it was CRAZY! Let me fill you in…
So after searching endlessly for a job I found one and got it so I thought this was going to be the start of something great, I thought I’d love it and I would work loads happily and get lots of moneeeey! (An essential for a student) HOWEVER… it wasn’t as it seemed, my day started out rushed and I got thrown into the deep end because the store was overly busy and packed. With a smile on my face I carried on with hopes that it would get better, I had 2 hours of going through the safety and fire booklet with a manager making jokes about all the safety precautions…this didn’t bother me to much but next to me were two girls openly talking about me?! I was in disbelief, I was sat right next to them, oh well continuing the story anyway…
Putting on a brave face I continued and once the precautions and safety talk was finally over I got my uniform, had to put it on in a smelly tiny dirty toilet hobbling around on one leg trying to get my balance so I didn’t put my foot in this ‘water’ that looked suspiciously like urine on the floor. Once my uniform was on I got taken up stairs and put on the shop floor where I was given my equipment and expected to know what I was doing, I felt intimidated to say the least and I kept clock checking my whole ‘training day’ (A.K.A Basically my first shift). This and the fact most customers were angry made a horrible concoction for a first day 😦
So all in all, I left my job. I simply cannot stay where I feel out of place, I would rather work somewhere I love so that I enjoy going to work 🙂 The positive side to this story is that I got another interview next week on Tuesday for a big fashion retailer that I wanted, so I just hope that my interview goes well 🙂 – Wish me luck!
Anyway I brought some new make up bits the other day, I brought a Collection 2000 Colour Pout Lastin Lip Stain in 2 Kiss and Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer in 1 Fair (Because I am rather pale) and that gives 16 hours wear! Also this week I have painted my nails in Maybelline New York Forever Strong Professional 202 Really Rosy.
I also thought it would be good if I revealed my secret make up bag utensils and essentials, I tend to go for the barely there/natural look a lot of the time and the only thing I really emphasize is my eyelashes because they are quite small…(May seem like ALOT of mascara but that’s because I need to clear out my old ones!)
