bronzer

Mesauda Cosmetics

Hey guys!

So this week I have been a little MIA, been crazy busy with work, college and now I have decided to re decorate our room just before am due to leave for London. Yes I am a little crazy if not a lot of crazy. Yeah so been super busy but I wanted to check in and share with you all this amazing new brand I have recently worked with, The brand is called Mesauda Cosmetics, they specialise in all things beauty, facial make up, lips, nails and accessories and this week they gave me a chance to try out their amazing desert sands bronzer.

I decided to test run the bronzer, when I went to my friends engagement party on saturday, the bronzer is very glittery when its on your skin, so I wouldnt use this for my normal day to day make up. I started out with my normal beauty routine and added on my Mesauda bronzer at the end. The smooth texture made it look as if I didnt have anything on, the only thing you could see was the sparkly glitter, which was perfect when I hit the dance floor I was all sparkly and even after all the dancing no top up was needed!

 I am extremely impressed with this product, I had so much fun trying out a new product and on every night out I will be wearing this!

I am a Contour Virgin!

Yes its true, hello my name is Amie Louisa and I am a contour virgin. For so many months, since the “craze” started, I have been unsure whether to try it or not, I guess I was happy with my make up routine and didnt know what the big deal was. So yesterday I went out and got my self the Barry M Chisel Cheeks Contour set, I got this at Boots for only £6.49.

I am going to try this out, do a step by step photo guide and review it for all those out there that like me haven’t tried it or maybe those who have and are looking to find a cheaper option.

In the set you get 3 powders, first is a highlighter (lighter powder), a bronzer (medium brown) and a sculptor (dark brown). The thing I love about this set is the little guide, contouring looks pretty easy from all the videos I have watched and is also easy to remember but its always good to have a little guide just in case.

OK so step 1 is to put your daily foundation on.

For step 2 we highlight our cheekbones, chin and the length of your nose, all the way up to the center of your forehead with the first powder in our Barry M set.

Next we move on to the medium brown,sweep this across your cheeks, forehead and nose.

Then we apply our last shade, the dark brown to the hollows of your cheeks, blending this out all the way to the ears, along your hairline and then down the sides of your nose.

Our final step is to add a little blush this just helps bring a little colour to your face, I am using the Collection blusher “Bashful”, this is my favourite blusher not too pink, its really pretty and it stays on all day.

Ok guys so can we have a drum roll please……..

Thats it we are done, by now your face should look very chiseled, I have to say I am rather impressed and I now I get what I have been missing out on. I think Barry M Contour set has earned a permanent place in my make up bag!. After you have done your face you can head onto doing your eyes and lips the way you normally do. I can’t believe the difference! I am very very happy to recommend this to everyone and anyone, the have really nailed the chisel cheek look and I cant believe I have just came across this.

You can get yours at Boots online or in store and if you do let me know how it worked for you and if you love it as much as I do.

Wedding Guest Make Up

Wedding season is here! I am so excited, I am such a sucker for a good wedding. Over the next few years, my boyfriend and I have so many good friends who are getting married. This means lots of outfits, engagement parties and pictures!

Our first came on Friday when our two friends got hitched, I am so over the moon for them, they are so well suited and are the sweetest couple in the world.

While getting ready I took some pictures, to complete a ‘wedding guest’ post, some help if you will, if you are stuck for hair ideas, make up or clothes.

Make up time!

After tanning up with some St Moriz, I used Maybellines new Dream Flawless Nude foundation, finishing off with some MUA bronzer. I know some people go into so much detail with their face make up but I like to keep it simple and light especially when I am going to a night wedding, all that dancing = a lot of sweating lol

For my eyes I did a simple smokey eye with my MUA palette. Finishing it off with my MaX Factor eye brightening mascara and my Miss Sporty liquid liner.

For my lips I choose Persian Rose by MUA, the magic £1.00 lipstick, that I absolutely love! I have to have one in every colour!

So that’s my make up done, I don’t tend to do a lot, I love having make up on but I hate having so much on, always harder to take off and sweating with black eyes is not a good look lol

For my hair, I couldn’t go up because it was too formal and I felt down was messy, so half up half down seemed perfect. I lifted the top section of my hair and back combed a little to give it some height. Using kirby grips I pined it up, pushing a little to make the quiff stand out. I curled the ends of my hair using my BaByliss curlers and added a light mist of hairspray to hold it all together. I will post a full ‘How To’ hair tutorial soon, maybe be easier to understand lol

That is it, all done, I was ready to rock it!

Keep your eyes peeled for the full hair tutorial on my half up half down look. 🙂
