Top 3 Bronzers

I find it really hard to find a natural looking bronzer for paler skin. I think a lot of them either look to orange or too muddy on the skin. However I have found my top 3 that I love and I think will be in my top 3 for a very long time and today I'm going to share then with you, hope you enjoy. 

Right to left - Estee Lauder Aerin Illuminating Bronzer, Sleek Contouring Palette, Benefit Hoola

Estee Lauder Aerin Illuminating Bronzer is my most newest to my collection and I have fallen in with it. It gives a really gorgeous glow when used on checks, forehead however because it has a slight shimmer to it, its not the best product to use for contouring but as a normal bronzing powder is it stunning! This product does make me feel a million dollars when I have it on. 

Sleek Contouring Palette is my staple. This palette as a whole is just amazing and perfect for travelling. The bronzer in it is just lovely and does what it says on the packet. I do use this more for contouring as its matte and slight bit dark for me skin tone, just make sure you blend it in well, it just make your cheekbones pop! 

Lastly Benefit Hoola, this is a good all rounder whether its bronzing up the whole face or as a contour. I find this product to be very build-able and gives a gorgeous bronzed look. The only downside is the packaging as its a pain to fit in a make up bag, apart from that i love it!

Top 3 Foundation

Over the last couple weeks I have been thinking of ways to improve my blog and to have some sort of structure to it, so I thought of a little idea of Top 3, every friday I will share with you my top 3 products from lipsticks to fake tan - it also means I get to buy more products and expand my ever growing collection of beauty oops. Let me know if you like this idea and if you have any certain products that you'd like me to show you what my favourites are. 

I seem to have a slight obsession with collecting foundations, so today I thought I'd share with you my top 3. I am defiantly more of a high street make up buyer as I love finding products that do the same as high end and for half the price. However saying that 2/3 of my top 3 are high end! 

From left to right - Estee Lauder Double Wear, bareMinerals, L'oral Paris True Match

Estee Lauder Double wear is the newest in my collection and I have fallen in love with it, the coverage is medium to full and is very build-able, lasts all day. Even though it has been very warm in the last couple of month this foundation has still lasted all day. I've had so many comments on how flawless my skin looks when I've been using this. For the time being this will be keeping its place in my make up bag! 

L'oral Paris True Match has been my staple and must have for years now, its one I always go back to if I'm having lazy days and I don't want to have that full coverage look. Saying that this foundations also very build-able and looks gorgeous on summer evening and gives the skin a healthy glow. The only downside to this foundation I find is, it doesn't last very long during the warmer months but overall its another I love and repurchases all the time. 

Last but not least the foundation I use for more then one thing is the bareMinerals Ready foundation, this is a gorgeous light coverage foundation in a power form. It gives an even skin tone and reduces any redness, it definitely does all it claims to be. I also use this as a setting powder if I need or want a bit more converge, I mostly use it as a setting powder if I'm going to be out all day and evening or if I'm having a bit if a bad skin day. Again this is my second one and I love it still. 

I hope you enjoyed this post and are having a gorgeous day. Make sure to follow me on bloglovin so you don't miss any of my posts.

Cricket, Sparkle Shoes and Icecream

Today consisted off recovering from very sore legs ( I don't think my body agreed with the run I did yesterday) and as my brother was playing cricket not far from us, we all thought we'd go down and support him of course while eating a ice cream and a picnic. 

Its always lovely to laze around watching cricket on a sunday afternoon and when there is jelly and ice-cream around it doesn't really get any better! 

Above are such a few pictures from today as honestly I was enjoying my lazy day a bit too much and kept forgetting to take photos! I hope you like it anyway, and are having a lovely day. I would love to know what you have got up to on this gorgeous lovely Sunday so comment below.

Much Love
