Beautycon 2015

So as many of you know I am now part of another blog as well as writing my own, called ‘couture stories’ I am their social media manager, so on behalf of them I visited beautycon london at london Olympia yesterday! So I thought I would write and tell you a bit about it. 

So I went to beautycon with my beautiful cousin Olivia, we got there after a massive trek! I’m talking like 5 different train changes! And it was so beautiful, the colours were all the beautycon colours, lilac’s and pale blues and pastel pinks! Then when we went in there was massive balloons that were actually so amazing!  

  

    

Then when we walked further in there was so many stalls with all different beauty related things, including many giving away freebies! There was a beautiful Liz Earle counter with all like little bridges and huts and they gave us these adorable cookies and lemonades!  

  

Then because we followed them on Instagram and posted a picture of a Liz Earle sign and tagged them we got these bags, containing a amazing 50ml bottle of their cleanse and polish which is so amazing, I really recommend it, the texture feels so good on your skin and just leaves it feeling amazing, as well as smelling great! 

 

  

 

We then went over to the style uk stand which were giving away these beautiful tattoos, you know them metallic ones that kylie Jenner and beyonce have worn to festivals and cochella and things, well we got some of them and then the same kind of process had to post a picture and we got a massive free pack!    

 

Then we visited some of the panels that were going on during the day including a beauty Q&A with lily pebbles, Vivianna make up, Freddy my love, beauty crush, Lucy and Lydia and many more! We were lucky enough to snag a few piccys with them after as well!  

                 

  

  

   We also got to meet one of my personal favourites, Helen Anderson, who is a youtuber and in a band called box of light in case you didn’t know! Go check her out, she was so lovely chatting to us and everything, they all were!  As well as them signing my business cards! 

 

    

But overall I think my favorite bit of the whole event was the BENEFIT COUNTER! It was beautiful, with 10% off, mini samples and lemonade!  

      

So overall yesterday was incredible! The only disappointment was not being able to meet Tyler Oakley, he just has too many fans! But yeah we loved every minute and will Definately be back next time! It has also inspired me to start doing YouTube videos of my own, let me know if you think this would be a good idea?

Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award!

sisterhood-of-the-world-bloggers-award

After less than two weeks of blogging, i have been nominated for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award! by Mimi’s Beauty. She’s amazing, check out her reviews and beauty tips here http://beautyandmi.wordpress.com.

The Rules:
– Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.
– Put the award logo on your blog.
– Answer the ten questions they have set you.
– Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.
– Nominate ten people

These are the questions that Mimi asked me:
What is your favourite eye-shadow palette?
my favourite eyeshadow palette would be the bodyshop brown eyeshadow palette as i think they are great colours for everyday that blend so well with each other as well as other eyeshadows.

Drugstore or High-End make-up brands?
I really do think it depends on the product. Due to my sensitive skin i usually end up using more high end make up brands rather than drugstore brands simply because they use better ingredients for my skin but i do believe that their are some products in drugstore brands which are far better and far more effective than higher end and more importantly more expensive brands.
Favourite Concealer?
I don’t actually wear concealer frequently but when i do i believe that the mac moisturising cover concealer is amazing. it really blends well with your skin, foundation and powder as well as not getting stuck in the creases of your skin especially under the eyes. My favourite thing about this concealer is that you only have to use the tiniest bit for coverage and it isn’t thick and gloomy either but still covers the areas you need it to.
What’s the best mascara you own?
Although it is expensive the best mascara i own by far is the benefit real eyes mascara! It is amazing. i’ll admit i have only been using it recently but i can notice a change in my eyelashes and have been told by other people since using it that they look longer as well. It provides a thick cottage without being gloomy like it literally glides on. I actually bought mine for £2 at a benefit charity event where as the smaller size is actually £9 in boots. But omgoshhhh! so worth it chicks
What’s the best product you own under £4?
The seventeen wet look liquid eyeliner. omgosh this is literally the best glide on mascara i have ever had, it literally glides on and stays on all day! I’ve tried number seven, chanel, mac eyeliners and none are as good as this, for under £4! BARGAIN BUY!
If you could only wear one type of product e.g. foundation, mascara, lipstick etc. for the rest of your life, what would you choose?
definitely MASCARA! all the way, my lashes would be pin pricks without it, then again i am a lipstick lover
Biggest weakness when buying make-up? Definitely lipsticks, you can never have to many shades of lipstick
What’s your favourite shade of lipstick/gloss? This is difficult, last year i was really into my reds however this summer i’ve been very hooked on my pinks so i’d go for pink at the moment but that doula all change.
Coloured eye-liner – yay or nay? Depends on the event but i’m gonna go yay, why not?
What’s your everyday skincare routine?
I use my blue corn 3 in 1 skin mask by body shop twice a week but in between then i wash my skin with dermalogica ultra calming gel every day and then moisturise with aveeno cream and occasionally Jo malone vitamin E. Although some of these are expensive products you can get cheaper versions. The most important thing for me is keeping my skin clean and moisturising as i have rather dry skin rather than spotty.
