A Guide for her – beauty and more!

It’s fast approaching the big day when Santa will be sliding down our chimneys and delivering us all some amazing gifts.

Thankfully I started early this year and I’m now all finished, even wrapped so tomorrow won’t be stressful for me 🥳 bring on the food and Prosecco!

BUT if you still need to get a few bits for someone female in your life, Mum, sister, girlfriend, here are a few ideas!

I thought I would put together a mixture of gift ideas including jewellery, skincare and of course a few cosmetics!

These are all from some of my favourite brands, I have also left links so you know where to go to pick these up!

Bioderma skincare:

I am a huge fan of their skincare products, I love the fact that they have several lines which cater to different skin types, my favourite is the sensitive range!

Here are a few of my favs including this amazing gift set and can all be bought in boots! The gift sets are also available on Look Fantastic so why not treat yourself to one?

Johnny Loves Rosie:

There are some absolutely beautiful pieces available, jewellery, bags, purses etc.

One of my top picks is this beautiful rose gold bow necklace, it’s such an elegant piece.

All their items are available to buy in House of Fraser and directly on their website.

Urban Decay Cosmetics:

This has to be one of my favourite brands, I absolutely love their eyeshadow palettes and my new favourite is the Naked Cherry palette, it is the perfect palette for Autumn/ Winter!

It is available in all UD stores and Debenhams stores across the U.K.

If you know someone who loves make up and struggling what to buy them, this is definitely a great option!

Morphe Brushes:

I am a HUGE fan of Morphe, I am so glad that they now have a store near me in Westfield. I have recently picked up a few new bits and would highly recommend them!

Both of these items are great as stocking fillers or a gift to add to a main present.

They can both be picked up in the Morphe stores but also online, so if you’d like to treat yourself to these after Christmas then why not?

So that rounds up my last min gifting ideas for 2018!

I wanted to also thank you all for your support, reading and commenting on my blog posts. There will definitely be lots more to come in 2019!

Have a great Christmas and see you all back here in 2019!

Gingerbread Spice – Too Faced!

With it being the lead up to Christmas I’m 100% there for all things festive and the scents we associate with Christmas.

When I found out that Too Faced were going to be bringing out a Gingerbread scented palette as part of their Christmas collection it was definitely added to my wish-list!

The palette is a mixture of both matte and shimmer shades which have the cutest festive names. This is definitely the perfect palette for all your Christmas looks, it has such a versatile range of shades you can go from a shopping day to a night out with just the one palette.

So, I’m guessing you all want to see it right?

I think my 3 favourite shades have to be “Spice is nice” which is the orange warm tone, then “Bake it till you make it” the shade under the gold. Lastly followed by “Lookie at my Cookie” which is the baby pink in the second left row.

As with all Too Faced palettes the formula of these is beautiful and blends effortlessly making it perfect for not only MUAs but everyone.

It does retail at £39 which I think is a fair price for the quality and amount of shades in the palette, it’s also in a metal case so definitely protects your shadows when traveling.

At the moment I believe it is sold out everywhere in the U.K. apart from Selfridges, I did however purchase mine from ASOS who do stock Too Faced products.

Is this beauty on your wish list this year?

If you have it what’s your favourite shade?

Blush, Bronze, Blush 🖌

Happy “hump” day all!

This week I received a lovely gift from Phase Zero.

They have recently launched two brand new editions to their brand, bronzer and blusher. There are quiet a few different shades to chose from which cater to all skin tones.

These are the two blushers and bronzer I was very kindly gifted:

As you can see they are contained in a matte black rectangular compact, they also have a mirror inside so perfect for using on the go.

I thought it would be good to also show you them individually so you can see the shades I picked.

The Blushers:

Cotton Candy – £7.50

It is a very soft pink shade and perfect for light skin tones or a natural makeup look.

Heart Throb – £7.50

https://www.lovemebeauty.com/productpreview/product/LMB-PZ-BLUSHERS

It is quiet a vibrant pink, you definitely wouldn’t need to apply a lot! I’d say this is the one for medium/ darker skin tones or someone who likes a vibrant glam look.

The Bronzer:

Hidden Agenda – £7.50

https://www.lovemebeauty.com/productpreview;jsessionid=806C9A96BA4E6A30942669957E97D59C.jvm1/product/LMB-PZ-BRONZER

It’s definitely more of a cool toned bronzer. Perfect for also using as a contour shade. I feel it would definitely be better for light / medium tones.

I can definitely say the formula of all three products is spot on, it blends seamlessly and doesn’t go patchy throughout the day. It also has a beautiful coconut / tropical scent which isn’t over powering so if your someone who doesn’t really enjoy scented products this shouldn’t effect you.

I am hoping that more shades will soon arrive in the bronzer as I do need a slightly darker shade for when I have a tan 🙂

*Hint Hint Phase Zero*

Also Phase Zero have given me a discount code to share with you all, if you use “KIRSTYB05” at check out you will get £5 off your order!

Will you be picking any of these beauty’s up?
