MAC Cosmetics Strobe Cream Review

MAC Strobe Cream is one of my little life savers especially during these drab winter months. Bad weather, lack of sleep, poor diet etc. can all take a toll on our skin. On days when I feel my skin needs a little lift I use my MAC Strobe Cream. It's the best. You can use it on it's own so it acts as a primer and a hydrant or you can mix it on the back of your hand with your foundation to give an all over luminous glow.

Mel's Tip: Sometimes for nights out/special occasions I like to apply some MAC Strobe Cream along my collar bone for extra emphasis and glow.

If you only invest in one beauty product this winter let it be the fabulous MAC Strobe Cream. 

Get Glowing!!

Lipstick Lovers

Who loves lipstick? It's like personality painted on to your lips. Whether you're a classic red, a popping pink or a natural nude this post should have your lips looking gorgeous! Given the name of the blog I have chosen lipstick application to be my first post!

Lipstick Application Step By Step

1. Exfoliate! If you apply lipstick directly to lips that are dry & flaky it will look bad & will not last. My favourite lip scrub is LUSH Lip Scrub in bubblegum flavour. All LUSH products are made from 100% natural ingredients and you can actually eat the excess of your lips! YUM!
2. Outline your lips with a lip liner the same as or similar as the shade of lipstick you have chosen. Lip liner can also be used all over the lips as a base to hold your colour in place.
3. The next step is to apply your lipstick! Keep within the lines of your lipliner and use a lip brush for a more precise application. My favourite lip brush is from MUA Makeup Academy. If you go outside the lines wipe it away with a clean cotton bud. Apply more colour as needed but remember less is more!
4. Blot your lipstick with a tissue. Removing the excess will help you avoid ''greasy'' lips from to much product. 
- Apply a lipgloss if you wish and also a little highlighter in your cupids bow will make your lips look fuller and kissable! ;) My all time favourite lipstick range is MAC Cosmetics and my favourite colours vary but at the moment they are Candy Yum Yum & Saint Germain.
