Skincare to Makeup Part 2: Image Skincare

If you've been keeping an eye on the blog lately or have been following me on social media, you may have come across me explaining that I am currently doing a three-part series on brands that approach makeup from a skincare point of view, or skincare brands that have recently released a makeup line. Skincare has started to play a very important role in my life, especially as I am in my thirties and ageing skin is a thing. Paying attention to what we put on our face is the trend these days and makeup is no exception. My first post was on mineral makeup brand Jane Iredale, who utilise natural ingredients to get the best out of our skin and be as beautiful as we can be. Don't worry if you've missed the first part of my 'Skincare to Makeup' series, you can find it right here.

This second part is all about skincare brand Image Skincare. Image Skincare focuses on scientific advanced formulas that offer clear results, postponing any signs of ageing as much as we can. Their motto:

"IMAGE now, Age later."

Image Skincare is a brand trusted by professionals but as it is now also available to non-professionals like you and me, I felt it was time to see what we're actually dealing with and whether the products are worth it.

Skincare to Makeup Part 1: Jane Iredale

Jane_Iredale_Mineral_Makeup_Products

Happy May! Spring is well on its way and as I am typing this, I am sitting in my garden on what has turned out to be a very hot day. I have decided to publish a three-part series where I want to discuss something slightly different: Makeup from a skincare point of view. Over the last 12 months, skincare has become more and more important to me. Where I used to rely on a simple makeup remover and a day/night cream, I now have a regular AM and PM skincare routine that probably consists of at least 6 or 7 steps! My skin has never felt better. It's smooth, I rarely suffer from breakouts and my makeup looks so much more flawless. So skincare is clearly important. In fact, so is anything we put on our face. In this series I will be highlighting three brands that focus on bringing out the best in your skin and the first one is mineral makeup brand Jane Iredale. Eager to find out more? Read on!

MUDD Beauty: Organic, Vegan and Cruelty Free Makeup from Birmingham

One of the things I enjoy most about blogging is discovering new brands and being able to share this with you. The brand I'm sharing with you in this post is MUDD Beauty, a beauty brand from my hometown Birmingham, UK. Last November I attended their launch event where I tried the Matte Lip Mud.

Going Korean With Touch in Sol London

One of the biggest trends of last year that is currently ongoing, is the use of Korean beauty products. South Korea introduced us to the BB Cream in 2011 and I knew the Far East were super innovative and had a lot to offer, however I've never really focused on it myself. This changed when my lovely friend Dorota from Beauty Drama Queen hosted a giveaway in collaboration with Korean beauty brand Touch in Sol London through which I won their Corean Complexion Cream. Ever since that moment, I've been loving this brand and through this post I want to share some of their amazing products with you.

The Future Of Makeup All In One Capsule

For most of us travelling is part of our lives, whether it's for leisure or work. Trying to fit all your favourite makeup and skincare products in one bag can be tricky and I for one don't always enjoy carrying around a large makeup bag. Pressplay Cosmetics have found THE solution for this: a makeup Capsule the size of a large smartphone that is lightweight and holds all your makeup essentials. How it works? Let me show you!

How To Achieve That Perfect Airbrushed Base With Magnitone

Magnitone_London_BlendUp_Makeup_Blending_Brush_Box

Most people apply foundation with either a brush or sponge. I use a dense, round brush with a flat top and that really allows me to create that flawless base, but sometimes it can take a while to apply a full face of makeup and foundation is something that works better when applied as soon as possible in order to create that gorgeous airbrushed look. What if there was a tool that allowed you to apply it quicker? And what if this tool was electronic? Would you use it? In this post I'm sharing everything about the Magnitone London BlendUp Vibra-sonic Makeup Blending Brush*.

Brum Bloggers × Stila UK: Swatches and Review

Last Wednesday I had the opportunity to join some of loveliest beauty bloggers Birmingham has to offer for a trip to Harvey Nichols in the Mailbox for a meeting with Sascha Jackson, the lead makeup artist for Stila UK. I must admit, when I got the invitation, I had to poke myself a few times to make sure I wasn't dreaming! I've been using Stila cosmetics for a while now and have absolutely loved every piece I've tried so far, so when I saw the invitation I got very excited!

Easing Into The New Year With Percy & Reed Wonder To Go

January is usually the time of year when we get run down. I work in a very busy office that is severely understaffed, so when I stop working over the Christmas holidays and lose my normal routine, this often results in me getting the flu. The last few weeks, it's definitely been going around, so I'm guessing most of you know what I mean? This has actually been the first year in a while that I've managed to avoid becoming ill, mostly by taking a few steps back and making sure I get enough sleep. Now that's all great, but once you take that step back, I find that it can be really hard to get back into things, especially when you try to balance a full-time job with blogging, which on its own can take up just as many hours!
