(Pretending I’m not wearing two jumpers) *Summer Alert* If you’re searching for a great affordable bronzer, check the @kikomilano spring/summer collection. They always come out with a marbled baked bronzer in a big golden compact, in two different shades, that gives you a beautiful summer glow without any glitters or orange cast. It’s pigmented enough that you can use a light hand and it blends beautifully. I’ve had mine for over a year and I’ve hardly made a dent on it. #makeup #bronzer #kikobronzer #affordablemakeup
here’s a very simple tutorial on the look I did last week. one statement eyeshadow, a bold look. and a handful of new great products sprinkled about.
Essence sometimes has great releases that, being seasonal, don’t get to shine. I’ve been having so much fun with these two nuggets and you’ll be able to see them in action on my next video. #metalchrome blush in 20 is a beautiful warm taupe-brown that gives a beautiful dewy flush without emphasising my texture. #holowow dewy lip shine is a gloss with a sheer deep berry base that has a violet duochrome effect. On the lips, it creates a juicy effect with added shine but no visible glitter. Gorgeous! #highlightoftheweek
let’s see what the February Look Fantastic Beauty Box holds for us, shall we?
also, you can’t miss my review on last month’s products… there may or may not be a bit of a rant there…
I’ll be playing with some autumn-inspired looks, and I’m beginning with a fail-safe colour scheme: grungy brown smokey eyes, cool pink cheeks and glossy nude-y pink lips, on a more matte complexion.
I hope you enjoy this one.
all about my favourites to get (part of) that golden glow I used to have as a kid, without sitting in the sun. because ain’t nobody got time fo’ that!
Vita Liberata pHenomenal Self-Tanning Mousse — the most affordable I found was at Beauty Bay, but Cult Beauty carries more shades, like Feelunique and Look Fantastic — so it’s a matter of looking out for promotions.
Clarins Radiance Plus Golden Glow Booster is widely available in local stores, and you can also find it on Feelunique.

the most prosaic what’s in my bag video ever uploaded on YouTube…
sorry, that’s (my) life.
do you want me to do a day-to-night or a makeup freshen-up video with what’s in my makeup bag? let me know.
#flashbeautyreview I'm always on the hunt for a good lightweight SPF that sinks in quickly, looks good under makeup and doesn't break the bank. Part of the famous vitamin E range from The Body Shop, this Moisture-Protect Emulsion with SPF 30 ticks all the boxes. Except for one: because it has perfume added (that's why it smells delicious, just like the rest of the range), I can't get it anywhere near my eye area, because it starts to make my eyes water. So, overall a great product, but I'd be weary of the eye situation.
A little batch of really #hypedproducts arrived yesterday! Two of them are really hard to get ahold of in Portugal, but I got them through @beautylish — no customs faff! I have high expectations for these bad boys.
