Beauty On A Budget: Pre-Summer Look Tutorial

Hello again everyone and welcome to the latest Beauty On A Budget make-up tutorial. For this tutorial I am going to be creating a combination of a shiny and well not so shiny make-up tutorial. A kind of a make-up opposites attract look. The transition between the casual look of spring to the glitz and shine of summer.  Hope you all like it.🙂

 

So without further ado let’s get to this …

 

First off here is me before the tutorial:

Using Miss Beauty London Perfect Face Primer and Make Up Gallery Make Up Sponges 24 Pack, cover your face and neck and rub the primer in. The smaller triangle sponges are great for any blending of the primer under your eyes. Using Manhattan Fresher Skin Foundation – Classic Ivory and Make Up Gallery Make Up Sponges 24 Pack, cover your face and neck and rub the foundation in. The smaller triangle sponges are great for any blending of the foundation under your eyes. Using the make-up pad provided, blend in Miss Beauty London powder around the face. Using Make-Up Gallery Hide & Seek Concealer Natural Coverage dot under the eyes, just in the middle of the forehead leading off from the nose area, lightly around the face and on any blemishes. Rub in well with Make Up Gallery Make Up Sponges 24 Pack. Again the little triangle is great for under eyes. To make the nose longer and thinner, draw lines down side of nose on both sides and in the middle of the nose without joining the lines and place a dot on top of the nose. Again blend in well with the little triangle.

Using the Make Up Gallery Brown 4, cover each eyelid and do a mini wing by drawing upwards from the outside corner of your eye. Cover above eyelids with Miss Beauty London Eye Crayon Soft Creamy Eye Colour 2 Cappuccino. Also use the crayon to brighten up inner corners of eyes and dab under eyes too. Use Essence Kajal Pencil – White under eyes as well. Blend brown and white together. Use the black in Miss Beauty London Eye Brown Kit and with the brush provided use it as an eyeliner and on your eye brows. Using Max & More Mascara With Argan Oil – Black place on the top and bottom of your top lids and the tops of your bottom lids. When coating the under part of your top lids wriggle the brush through for extra volume and length.

Morny Nature’s Aloe Vera Moisturising Hand Cream!

A little beauty find that ticks the all-important cheapness and quality boxes!

A little beauty find that ticks the all-important cheapness and quality boxes!

Morny Nature’s Aloe Vera Moisturising Hand Cream is incredibly cheap and really makes your hands feel soft and completely cleansed.

I got an amazing 75ml tube of it in More 4 Less in Bray, Wicklow and the bargain shops like this are a real hidden treasure haven for the most effective and inexpensive beauty must-haves from face creams to hand creams to cheap make-up and even make-up brushes, manicure sets, eyelash curlers and tweezers.

It is also quite long-lasting so it is great value that way too. The great thing about these magic tubes is that they are as good as more expensive alternatives and yet you could buy quite a few of them for the price of one tube of their counterparts.

Osiris Avise BB Cream Light Review!

Osiris Avise BB Cream Light is a triumph!

I was curious about the craze of BB Cream so I bought a cheap one at the start of the year in Dealz in Dún Laoghaire. For €1.49. The shop is godsend with so many amazing items at €1.49.

 I bought Osiris Avise BB Cream Light which has SPF 15 and UV Protection. The little 40ml tube seems like it will run out fast but it lasts a long time. I still have it. The secret been that if you just use a little bit it really spreads and just two tiny bits covers your entire face.

It also gives a really natural effect which generates a clear complexion. My mum who is a difficult make-up critic also loves it. She uses it too. 🙂

 

I give the little bundle of joy 5/5. It’s perfect! 🙂
