5 days of Trying New Products | Day 5: LA Girl Pro Coverage Foundation on Dark Skin Tones

I love the LA Girl Pro Concealer. Heck, I don’t love it, I adore it! There is the tiny problem of it creasing under my eyes but it is affordable and comes in so many shades. When I saw the LA Girl Pro foundation, I needed to try it. I am so happy that LA Girl is finally in the UK, we have been waiting for this for ages! Well, you might not have but I have! Their products are always really affordable and cater for women of all skin tones. As a dark skin…

5 Days of Trying New Products | Day 3: New Look Beauty on Dark Skin

I walked into New Look to pick up a pair of boots (which didn’t fit by the way!) and I saw some foundation. What?! I took 3 steps back! Were my eyes deceiving me?! Foundation in New Look? Foundation for dark skin tones?! Hold up! I just had to buy it. I just threw in some lipstick for good measure! *** NEW LOOK NO SHINE MATTIFYING FOUNDATION  Shade: Chestnut  £7.99 I bought the foundation from one of the New Look stores, but I checked online and I could see two shades for medium to dark skin…

5 Days of Trying New Products | Day 1: Topshop Beauty on Dark Skin

DAY 1: TOPSHOP AIR CUSHION SKIN PERFECTOR. Shades: 5.0 & 6.0 (6 shades available) £12 I picked the two darkest shades because I wasn’t sure which one would suit my skin tone. Shade: 6.0 is slightly darker than 5.0. I bought mine online but when I walked into my local Topshop, they had testers for the darker shades which I didn’t expect! Well done Topshop for coming through with shades suitable for women with dark skin tones. However, for my ebony, dark chocolate ladies I couldn’t find a shade darker than 6.0 so you may find…

HOURGLASS Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick on Dark Skin | First Impressions and Review

SHADE: GOLDEN ALMOND *** Since the weather changed here, I have been on the hunt for a new foundation. I always find that my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation, which is my holy grail for summer, is too matte for winter. I find that the NARS Luminous foundation is far too….’non-matte’ for me. It lasts slightly longer in winter than in the summer but it still does not last on my skin. Interestingly enough, my skin is changing. It used to be oily all over but I have noticed that my ezcema is flaring up…

Full Face Makeup Look using only H&M Beauty Products

I recently tried Primark’s Matte Lipsticks and I was pleasantly surprised. Surprised that four of the six lipsticks that I tried, looked good against my skin tone. This time I wanted to take it a step further by buying all the makeup products that I need for a full face from one brand and I chose H&M. When you think of H&M, you probably think one step higher than Primark in their clothes. Most of their pieces, basically the staple pieces are affordable and they have the ‘standout’ pieces that are slightly expensive, but they tend…

Milani Baked Blushes | Best shades for Dark Skin

I have never really been a blush sort of gal. I remember buying one MAC Blush in ‘Raizen’, which is like the black girl’s staple blush and using it for almost 3 years. No word of a lie. I think I ended up losing after all that time. I saw alot of reviews regarding Milani product especially their Baked Blushes, but I was unsure where to get Milani products in the UK. Thankfully, Milani now have a UK website (www.milanimakeup.co.uk), and deliver from the UK to the UK which is so handy, as there is…
