London Makeup Tutorial

I am so thankful to have such a great community that interacts, messages, comments and supports what I do on social networks day in day out. Your support is never unappreciated and I never take it for granted because if it was not for you, I would be writing a diary to myself. I appreciate each and every single one of you. In today’s instance, a lovely subscribed (Agnieszka) sent me lots of goodies from London that I’ve been craving to try for quite some time!

London Makeup Tutorial

I want to touch on the items that are specifically from London so let’s dive in!

Bourjois Healthy Balance Foundation is the product I’ve been waiting eons and eons to try. Now that I finally have it in my hands, I understand what the hype is about because this foundation is moisturizing and gives the skin a natural, fresh glow. There were quite a few items from Barry M, but I only managed to give this Get Up and Glow trio a go. I use the bronzer, blush and highlighter in this tutorial and I have to say, I think this is a really handy trio. Compact, travel friendly and overly beautiful.

Lots from Kiko too, including lip products and eye products but I only managed to use the light Kiko Eyeshadow Stick which lasted quite a long time post application. It was a bit tough to put on the eyes without using my other hand to hold my eye area steady, but it wasn’t impossible. After using the Barry M highlighter, I wanted to add more highlighter because this is my favorite part of makeup so I used the Collection Highlighter on top.

After applying all of the makeup, I wanted to set everything with the Bourjois Healthy Setting Powder. Never have I felt that a powder didn’t make my skin looks cakey and dry, but low and behold, this one does just the trick. Lastly, I used Bourjois Curl Mascara product to really enhance my lashes. Great mascara that applies easily and really gives the extra curl. I used some of my Tom Ford ‘Pussycat’ lipstick initially, but ended up topping the lips with the infamous Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick. This is such an incredible lipstick and it dries quickly, lasts hours upon hours and feels comfortable on the lips. I have a feeling this will become my new favorite red lip.

All in all, I was really impressed with everything and there wasn’t a single item I didn’t like. I may need to do a second round because she was so generous and I have so many more products to talk about even now!
