Colour Correcting Guide

Colour correcting is used to target specific areas and create a flawless base for your makeup, you should apply it before foundation and concealer. I don’t use it everyday, but as often as I can. It looks scary but using the right products it can be easy. For this I use the technic, Colour Fix Cream Corrector Palette, which comes with 8 different colours. This palette’s really good for beginners who are trialling colour correcting concealer as this palettes great value for money and includes all the colours you could need and more. The concealer is really creamy and blendable, whilst providing a high coverage base.dsc_0847

Here’s what each colour does:

  • Pink – to brighten
  • Lilac -to correct any yellow, shallow, tones and hide bruises
  • Green – to minimise redness
  • Peach – to neutralise blue tones
  • Rose – balance out any discolouration
  • Silver Shimmer – to highlight and brighten
  • Yellow – neutralise blue purple areas
  • Tan – to warm ash coloured skin tonesdsc_0846

How I use it: First I apply the green concealer on any spots or red areas I have. Next I mix number 4, Peach, and number 7, Yellow, together on my brush then blend it under my eyes. Then, I apply the lilac shade around my nose and on my chin. Finally I apply the highlighter under my brow, the inner corner of my eye and my cheek bone. I recommend applying the concealer with a brush and blending it in slightly with then finishing it off with your finger for a higher coverage

Autumn Tag 2016

I’ve seen loads of bloggers doing this, and thought it look fun. It’s the perfect chance to tell you more about my favourite season: Autumn. I tag anyone who wants to do it,  I wasn’t tagged directly to do this post.

Favourite Thing?

There’s so much to love: the clothing, the colours, the temperature; but for me I think it’s the photo opportunities. During this time of year I feel really inspired to take photos and blog about what’s going on, so expect a lot more from me. It doesn’t help knowing Christmas is just around the corner, eeek!!!

Desired hot drink

The clique thing to say here is a PSL, Pumpkin spiced latte, but I’m going to tell the truth is that I’ve never tried one. Instead, I much prefer a hot chocolate any day.  They’re just so good, topped with whipped cream and marshmallows, mmmm!

Seasonal scent/candle

My favourite scent by far, is mixed spice and cinnamon, which to me screams autumn. With that in mind, I love the cinnamon stick Yankee Candle and Christmas memories Yankee Candle, they’re just warm and comforting smells.

Favourite Lipstick

Does it count that I have 2 completely different shades: a deeper plump colour and a brighter scarlet colour. The first ones, Rimmel’s Kate Moss Lasting Finish, this is such a gorgeous shade that doesn’t wash you out. I’ve found myself wearing it loads. My other choice is Seventeen’s Mega Matte Lipsticks, in the shade Lava A lot, it so different to the shades I’d normally wear. Find links to my reviews on those products, here and here.

Eye look and colour

At this time of year I love a burgundy matte lid with a shimmery crease. Using my favourite pallete of all time, Seventeen’s Easy On The Eye, I take the colour 9 Bronzed Buff all over my lid. Then blend 8 Baked Chestnut into the outer V and put some shimmer, 1 Gentle Pink, into the crease.

Go to outfit

My most recent purchase was a bomber jacket. As you might of guessed, I love wearing it over a black pinafore and Superstars. It’s so comfy and is really versatile.

Autumn Activity
As I mentioned before, going for walks out and taking my camera, it’s just one of my favourite things to do. As I mentioned before Autumn is in my opinion the most photogenic season. Even though, I’ve been finding it hard to make time for this recently.

Autumn Nail Polish Transition

During Autumn, we begin to start wearing much darker colours:reds, browns, purples and oranges. However like some other people I’m not really a fan of bold colors on my nails as I find it draws more attention to chipping. So I tried to include some bolder and some more natural colors in this.

Ted Baker Nail Polish

This shade has no name, I got this in a set of 4 and all of the colors are really cute; however out of them all this is my favorite for autumn. This colors a really deep plum colour for any occasion. It’s really shiny and lasts for a good week.

Rimmel London Lycra Pro- 416 Night Flight

This colour is more or less the same as the last one apart from its’s much lighter and brighter. Out of all of all of these this has the best formula: it’s anti chip, long lasting and anti-fade for up to 10 days. The product claims this, but I totally agree with it. Also the brush to apply it with is really sturdy and wide meaning you can do the whole nail in one go.

 

Makeup Gallery Time To Shine-16 Ruby Red

Out of all of these, this one isn’t the best, but I love the color so much. It’s just a really nice shade of cherry red. One positive is it’s really quick drying and has a nice sign. I don’t really have much to say about this one as the formula is the greatest and chips after a couple of days.

Nail Colour Collection Next – Well Jel and Purple Haze

Again both of these came in the same set of nail polishes which all dry with a different effect. Purple Haze- a dirty pink shade- dries glossy gel effect and Well Jel- a beautiful pastelish pink- which dries matte. The first one can be worn on any occasion due to it’s natural colour and gloss finish. However, due to the amount of glitter in the second one I would only wear it on special occasions, maybe to a party.

Feeling Blue…?

Blue the colour of the sky and ocean. As my cleverly named title suggests, I’m going to be sharing with you some of my favourite products, in the colour blue.

 1. Pure Devotion Eau De Parfum

I got this perfume for Christmas, however you can buy it in New Look. It’s a refreshing and sweet floral scent, making it a comfortable everyday scent. It’s smells strongly of pink peony, lychee and lily of the valley with undertones of cedar wood and honey (I got all this from the packaging, I’m not that good at recognising scents). I wear this perfume almost everyday as it’s comfortable chic scent that last for hours.

 2. Nivea Hydro Care

I reach for this lip balm when ever my lips feel rough and dry and it instantly moisturises them again. It’s light to put on, so it isn’t greasy or thick. After using it my lips feel really soft and moisturised, ready for lip gloss/stick. It comes out clear and doesn’t taste nasty. Especially in the summer I like to use it as it has SPF 15, which means it protects your lips from the sun. 

 3. Whoosh Shower Jelly

As all over Lush products, this smells AMAZING!! I love the blend of citrus fruits, which make it smell really powerful. This a great thing to use in your morning shower because it wakes you up, leaving you feeling clean and fresh. It contains seaweed, fresh citrus juices, rosemary and geranium oils which all do wonders for your skin.
