THREE SKINCARE PRODUCTS TO TRY

Being in the beauty industry I am constantly trying out new and different skincare but it is like finding a diamond in the rough when a product really works with you skin.

 
Skincare is such a personal thing so it comes down to trial and error when finding your skincare holy grails which is why I wanted to put forward these three products because I think they are worth giving a go. There is a great variety of pricing among these three products, ranging from just $19.95 to a $140 investment.

PRETTY IN PINK MAKEUP FAVOURITES

Pink is one of my favourite colours so it only makes sense that the loss for it extends into my makeup also.


A pretty pink blush or glossy pink lip is hard to beat and in this post I share a few of my favourites.

FAVE FOUNDATIONS OF THE MOMENT - HIGH END AND DRUGSTORE

Foundations are tricky since they are so personal and dependent on a lot of factors like your skin type, skin tone, preferred finish and all those fine details.


So I like to talk about all of the foundations I like in general and since I'm quite in the middle when it comes to those types of specifications, I really think that I can help you girls out there who aren't sure what you should be looking for.

Each of these foundations I think would work for any skin type and most skin tones, depending on the shade you select. Point being is that if you have no idea what kind of foundation you want or should be getting, then these are fool proof options that won't leave you disappointed.

I have two drugstore options and another couple from high end so there is a great deal of variety in price range depending on how much you are looking to spend.

MY FUSS FREE BUDGET NIGHT TIME ROUTINE


My skin has been feeling great lately and I think it is due to switching up my night time routine with all of these new products.


Sometimes our skin gets stuck in a rut and needs a bit of variation to get back those results you initially had with that skincare routine. Just like with hair, I always find it really important to change up my shampoos and conditioners because after a while they aren't as effective as they used to be. 

Also with it being Mercedez Benz Fashion Festival in Brisbane this week, my new sleep set will speak true at the end of this week but hopefully my night time routine keeps my skin hydrated and clear.

LONG LASTING LIP COLOURS


Imagine a world where you can apply your lip colour in the morning and have it stay on until you remove it at night. I have scoured the market for all their long wearing products and put them to the test to let you know the best durable options out there.

Noone wants to be standing in front of a mirror multiple times a day having to re-apply their lip colour so many busy girls on the go are now opting for more long-lasting products that hold up during the day. Both high ends and drugstore brands have embraced the long lasting formulations, with most releasing their own version of a durable lip option - with some even claiming up to 24 hours of wear.

Read on for a look into each of these products where I am going to talk about the bad and good so you can decide which ones suit you best.

MARY KAY MINERAL CHEEK COLOUR - THE PERFECT BLUSH/HIGHLIGHTER COMBO

Highlighter is one of my favourite makeup products, adding that shimmer onto your cheekbones to finish off a look is like the sprinkles on top of a cake. So needless to say, these blush and highlighter duos from Mary Kay have found a special place in my heart, also known as my everyday makeup drawer. Could these be a dupe for the Nars Dual-Intensity Blushes?


You really can't beat the combination of a smooth pigmented blush colour with a super shimmery highlighter that perfectly compliments the colour scheme of the duo. These matches made in heaven all differ from each other adding so much variety to your collection and there is definitely something for everyone with these.

THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO NATURAL BLUSH

I'm going to be honest, I'm not a huge blush person and actually rarely wear any. I don't know why but it's just always a step that I skip in my makeup routine and I want that to change since I have too many beautiful products just sitting there neglected.


So I have put together a guide to perfectly rosy cheeks with options of all types and from all price ranges, there is something for everyone. This post is also aimed to inspire me to use the stuff on the daily since if I ever do use blush, it's always my bronze and neutral shades.

MAYBELLINE REBEL BLOOM REVIEW AND SWATCHES

Most of you would be aware that I am definitely a lipstick addict and so when I saw the Rebel Bloom collection, I knew it was something I would fall in love with.


I would best describe the collection as pastels made bright such as a slightly neon lilac and a fluorescent candy coral. Available in ten fun shades, this is a collection where you will want to get your hands on them all. Read on for a review of their formulation and swatches of all the shades.

LIFE UPDATE - FLAT TYRE, CLUELESS, HOUSE HUNTING AND UNI

It happened again - I looked at my post for today and decided I wanted to give you all an update instead. 


My life has been pretty hectic lately with university assessment in full swing, creating content daily for multiple platforms and dealing with crazy occurrences such as flat tyres. I have been pretty active on social media, especially Instagram so all photos in this post are from my feed (@JordyCannon). 

This is kind of a lengthy one so grab a cup of tea and let's catch up.

NO HEAT HAIR WITH JOICO K-PAK

I adore Parisian culture - everything from their skincare to their hair is effortlessly chic. I am always looking to achieve those perfectly tousled locks without looking overly put together and these Joico products do just the trick.

 
It's all about making sure your hair still feels soft and touchable while also creating body and texture. The main benefit of this style is that it requires absolutely no heat but still looks put-together and refined.
