5 Beauty Techniques I want to perfect

Makeup is one of my passions. The time where I am sat doing my makeup and getting ready is the most relaxing time for me and I do think that I got the hang of it and am quite alright with makeup techniques. Yet, there is always something that I would love to perfect, be better at or just simply be capable of doing it. There was always certain things with makeup that I tried to avoid because I just assumed I wasn't good at it but, in all fairness, practice makes perfect and that where this post comes in. I thought I would share some beauty techniques I want to perfect and hopefully, some of you my drop some tips or recommend some products in the comments bellow.

Wedding Talks #4: Bridal Makeup & Beauty Tips

It is time for another episode of Wedding Talks! I love writing these so much that I am always very excited when a new subject comes along. As you know, the wedding is just around the corner (4 months away, yay!) and so I have been getting all the information, tips and advice I can to make sure everything is perfect on the day.
One of the main things I have been focusing on is skin care and makeup as I just want it to look perfect. You might have heard this many times but the secret for a perfect, flawless makeup application is a good skin care routine that works for all your skin problems or concerns. Coming up with the perfect combination of products that really helps your skin can be trick but that is why you have to start trying products as soon as you get engaged (if you haven't found it before).
So it's time for me to share with you the tips, tricks or advice I have found to be really helpful and important for the big day.

A Beauty Bay Haul

Hi guys, long time no see!

After a three weeks break back at home with my family and another week getting back to my work routine, I am back to my blog stronger than ever.
The wedding is just around the corner (4 months away, I can't believe it!) and so I have started getting slightly more anxious and also deciding a lot of details like what makeup I am going to wear. If you don't know I will be doing my own makeup and so I really wanted to find something that I loved and that was simple but at the same time very glam.
I didn't want anything too complicated as I will probably be very nervous on the day and I don't want to mess it up so I finally found a makeup look that I absolutely love and that although it does include a wing liner, I am considering passing that so it just doesn't get too stressful. Let me know if you are interested in a post where I can share different bridal makeup looks for inspiration and I will definitely do it!
So because I have finally decided on what makeup look to wear, I have started buying a lot of new products to trial and I know that they will probably last until the wedding date. So opened Beauty Bay and this crazy purchase happened. I won't even tell you how much I have spent but you can do the maths for yourself.

The Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer | A Review

I find that this year is the year of the makeup discoveries for me. I am trying out a lot of new products that are mostly from brands I have never tried before and this is one of them - the Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer. A primer and moisturiser all in one.
A lot of people were raving about it and loving it because it is just so practical as you can skip moisturiser  and still have very nice, hydrated skin.
As you all may know by know, I have dry skin and finding products that help to fight that is a challenge so I couldn't wait to try this so when I traveled from Manchester to Madeira I grabbed it from the duty free shop and have been trying it ever since.

The Everyday Makeup Edit

My everyday makeup routine changes up more frequently than I would like but I am not mad at it. This past month and a half I have been trying a lot of new products that became my go-to for an everyday basis because not only I love how they make my skin look but also because they are mostly very affordable and for me that is key on an everyday makeup.
I do not want to be wearing a more expensive foundation or concealer on an everyday basis when I can have very similar results with more affordable products. I am the kind of person that will always opt for the more affordable, drugstore products for an everyday wear and leave the high end for special occasions, I am sure I am not the only one, right?
