I BB-elieve!

BB cream photoA couple of days ago, my sister and I were talking about how much her skin has changed since she has not been sleeping properly after she had her baby. She had said that she was trying BB cream because her normal Nude by Nature foundation was not giving her the coverage she needed to hide her dark circles surrounding her eyes. Coincidentally, a few days afterward, my mum also purchased BB cream, curious about the hype.

 

I normally swear by my M.A.C Cosmetics Foundation, but sadly, mine is running out so to save it until I could afford to buy a new one, I decided to try the Rimmel London 9-in-1 BB Cream. Let me be the one to tell you that the coverage is absolutely fantastic. My skin looks and feels smooth, blemishes are not noticeable and it barely feels like I have makeup on, which is good considering the mousse-like texture of the cream.

 

 

The Rimmel London BB Cream Primes, Covers, Smoothes, Mattifies, Moisturises, Protects (with SPF 25 protection), Minimises pores, Conceals and Brightens the skin!

I recommend this product to everyone, no matter your skin type or shade, as there are a range of shades from light to medium to dark in the Rimmel London BB Cream and this product offers maximum coverage for every user!

Beauty Tips – What I recommend!

Hi everyone, here I am going to step you through and introduce you to some of my favourite products as well as my routine.

To begin with, I use KIKO Milano Cleanser & Toner to wash and tone my face. It is a great priced, great quality product. I then use Neutrogena Moisturiser . After the Moisturiser has set into my skin and dried, I use MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Primer as a base for my makeup. Once that has been applied, I add MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Foundation. Make sure to go in-store to get the perfect shade to match your skin tone. Once my foundation is on and blended well, I go straight to my eyes.

For school I just use Mascara from the Sephora Collection in black . It is great value for the price; The size is generous and the results are visible and long lasting. When going out, I use my Sephora Collection Eyeliner, in black. It applies perfectly (I do not normally master the art of eyeliner, but with this product I nail it from the start!) Reminder: Eyeliner is applied before mascara!

When I am going out, I always leave with a statement shade of lipstick. The best lipstick that I can recommend to everyone is Chanel. At $50, the quality, perfect colour and easy application makes it worth every cent! When I want a classy red, I go for the Rouge Allure 104 Passion . It is long lasting and feels smooth and perfect on your lips! (It even lasts through food and drinking, without fading) It is vivid and absolutely perfect for anyone who wants to make a statement with their lips! When I want a playful, more fun and out there look, I always, always turn to the Rouge Allure Velvet 37 L’Exuberante . It is my personal favourite and I find that it suits many, many occasions!

Hint: The best thing to do before applying Lipstick is applying lip liner first. I prefer finding a lipliner that matches my lipstick exactly, Especially if you have eyeshadow contrasting the colour of your eyeliner and/or mascara. I also think that it looks more elegant and sophisticated to have a plain yet bold lip with the liner and lipstick matching.

So there you have it, My favourite products and my daily routine! Hope this helps! xx
