CHANGING OR SAVING FACES

Growing up we were taught to love our body  forever because the creator knows best and beauty is from within. What then change few years down the line? Should we say modernisation ,influence or social media that is telling us ,if we are not happy with what God has giving us we could change it.

Great number of women are not prepare to live or settle with the feature they are born with, instead willing to part with thousands of pounds on cosmetic procedures .Seeing so many influencers , celebrities on tv shows and just ordinary people like me every single day just make me feel left out or will l say the odd one out.

At 39 years old, l still get great compliments and quite happy with the features my mama gave me but can’t stop wandering if l need more or just an hyaluronic injection. l see lot of perfect shaped jawlines, cheeks and smooth foreheads at parties, malls, on social media platforms, bars and everywhere  l go , this got me thinking about my childhood.

Flash back to my teenage self, l remembered talking to my friends about celebrities and procedures. Procedures were not common then and used by older generations or celebrities to reverse ageing or wrinkles .Nobody wanted to be seen when going for it non talk about it but now a norm for the younger generation. Everyone want to be like the Kardashians, working three times more to save up just to go under the knife and look like someone else.

l believe that cosmetics is still a great opinion without going through injectables .Concealing and enhancing with makeup is more natural ,  will save you lot of money and won’t put you in danger of damaging your tissue if done by a wrong doctor.

Advice to my growing self, l do not want to look like someone else because Instagram is making cosmetic procedures grow so much and everyone is going to the same clinic, getting the same treatment and looking like twins. No, thank you l will pass on this one.

There is nothing wrong with enhancing your facial features if you love to do it  or have a medical reasons to but l think with my research so far l will stick to my super endure features and save up to travel and invest on other things.

As a mum and wife, it’s okay to look different after having kids .That is Mother Nature and let’s appreciate every changes that comes with it.

My journey to motherhood has been amazing and would not have it otherwise. God has created me beautifully and wonderfully in his image and likeness .l might not be perfect with my small head, nose  and sexy lips but the thought of spending my savings and still looking unidentifiable or damage is enough to keep me away from the needle forever. l am saving my face.

Are you changing or saving your face? If you have or you are , l will love to know why in the comment below.Love to hear your story and learn from you.

DRUGSTORE STEPPING UP SO STRONG

IMG_9133_Facetune_08-09-2018-19-51-44-2My drugstore journey began the beginning of this year when l decided to spend less and save more instead of high brands makeup ,l will do my research and go for good quality at an affordable price. Having said that l still will give myself occasional treat of high brands makeup.

l surprised myself on how quickly things fell in place,l started with drugstore liquid lipsticks like maybelline superstay £7.00 an intense ink colour that drys down to ultra-chic matt finish and flawless look,12hour wear,it applies smoothly giving second skin effect in just one stroke with a precise arrow applicator. This was a breakthrough for me because it means l could save another £7 or more .At this point, curiosity set in and also l needed a new foundation and wasn’t ready to invest in my favorite foundation at that point so l decided to try Maybelline superstay foundation £9.99, going into boots was always exciting for me when l needed toiletries and high brands products because l love their advantage cards for adding points ,it always comes handy especially during christmas time when my spending is skyrocket but this time around l went in for something l wasn’t sure would be as great as my best seller.

l left boots satisfied and really proud of drugstore products,this foundation is everything from 24hr full coverage to completely correcting visible flaws and imperfections ,lightweight,highly pigmented and gives a flawless transformation .lt will not smudge or clog my pores definitely my favorite foundation without breaking the bank.A friend of mine ask me if l had mac foundation on .l am obsessed with maybelline and wouldn’t  stop recommending this brand

Leave me a comment, let me know your favorite drugstrug product and why you absolutely love it.Also, if you’ve tried Maybelline Liquid Lipstick and foundation,what do you think of it?

 

WETNWILD CATSUIT LIQUID LIPSTICK

Recently, l went on liquid lipstick testing series on my YouTube channel and must admit, it was a tough decision choosing my absolutely favorite.I love every liquid lipstick tested especially the drugstore ones, amazing products with long lasting powers.

Wet n wild Megalast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick was just too great to put down, l was reaching out for it everyday to the point that l felt l wanted to stop the testing and searching series for long lasting liquid lipstick on my YouTube channel.

 

 

This Lipsticks applies like butter, feels like second skin, wouldn’t move or budge. It goes on smoothly, glossy and dries down into a high pigmented matte finish with serious staying power.It is light weight formula , feels velvety soft , they don’t fade or smudge and isn’t going nowhere.

With a product not even close to  expensive,tested for 8hours and lasted through eating/ drinking and completely transfer proof. l bet you can sleep and still feel fresh when you wake up.This is an absolute win win for me. If you have tried one,which color is your favourite?Nude or Darker color.

l CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF THE YSL TOUCHE ECLAT LE TEINT AND ALL HOUR FOUNDATION

I am all for natural, flawless and long lasting looks. Everyone gets happy when given value for money.I get excited when applying my foundation because it’s so easy and smooth with no effect at all.

Let me start by saying l was using YSL TOUCHE ECLAT LE TEINT for a year and half and it’s still my favourite any day, any time. Little wonder, it’s YSL’s bestselling foundation. It is a full coverage foundation and infused with the illuminating light of Touche Eclat for a radiant complexion. You can feel the glow and radiant texture even without looking at the mirror.

The formula contains a new association of pigments for enhanced coverage and radiance.Touche Eclat Le Teint full coverage Foundation gives a flawless finish with long lasting wear and feels weightless on the skin. It is easily blendable with comfort and comes with 19 plus shade Neutral, cool and warm undertone. This foundation makes me feel amazing and radiant all the time. You can use a brush or beauty blender with this product and a little goes a long way, but l have seen it work better with a brush using the dub method and circular movements starting with a drop first, followed by the second drop for a full coverage finish. To finish the Look, l always conceal and highlight with YSL iconic illuminating pen. This foundation is totally outstanding and l can’t get enough of it.

YSL ALL HOURS LIQUID FOUNDATION.

Let’s take a moment to talk about one of 2017 most rave about foundation, YSL ALL HOURS LIQUID FOUNDATION. I reach for this foundation when staying out late or on special occasion because it owns the night with a matte flawless finish. It is a full coverage foundation with SPF 22 that gives an even finish, without a mask or ghostly like effect and last 24 hours with a soft focus finish. The innovative formula is waterproof and transfer resistant. I don’t even touch up with this foundation and you can barely see my pores.

ALL HOURS LIQUID FOUNDATION comes in 22 shades of Light to dark. This foundation has oil free formula that keeps the complexion shine free with a matte finish. I use these two products during Spring, Winter and Summer without breaking out though with the previous foundation, l sometimes change my shade during summer because of change in my complexion during sunny period. Not a bad buy for £33.50. It is a great addition to any makeup collection.

Would l recommend the two? YES, l definitely will. l will recommend either of the two to friends, family and clients who want to spend a little bit for a great foundation.                Even as l look forward to some savings in 2018. l will not compromise when it comes to these two products. They will still be part of my regular shopping list.                            Keep the comments coming until next week.                                                                                  HAPPY NEW YEAR.
