Coffee that works miracles for your skin!

“It’s coffee though? You drink tea.” – said my boyfriend. When I first discovered @groundedbodyscrub through beauty lovers on Instagram (follow me at LEOFBELLES) I had to place an order, after scrolling through numerous different fruity and yummy sounding scrubs I found the scrub for me; Lemon Tea Tree Facial Coffee Scrub! Yes please. Proven to help cleanse and actively reduce pores, I needed a healthy facial scrub in my life and at an incredible price of Β£8.95 I ordered two bags!!

The results are amazing, ‘use once to twice a week’ it states on the back of the packet, however, I can’t resist and sometimes use up to three times a week! Oops!! I like to use a very small quantity when applying to my face (and make sure you do it over a sink!) as its a loose product and tends to get just about everywhere!! I also find if you use too much at once you can’t exfoliate your sink as well as you can when using a reasonable amount; I usually use a pea drop size on each of the three main areas of my face… Both cheeks and forehead!

It’s smells amazing throughout using as well as after washing off, which was surprisingly quick and easy to do! During this time of the year I find I get particularly oily skin and it tends too look tired and dull a lot of the time, after using this scrub for now 3 weeks I have noticed a huge improvement!! My skin is glowing, my pores have reduced massively and my face is overall less oily and a lot smoother! I even use the scrub on my lips to reveal super soft puckers ready for lipstick that’ll last and look flawless!

Give it a try! 

You can find all their scrubs here on their website or in some Boots stores!

Revolution Mini Haul – Part 3!

It’s finally here! My third and final post on how amazing I found the makeup from my mini haul!! (Thank you if you have taken time to read the previous two, if you haven’t… You should!) In this ramble I wanna show you how great my new favourite eyeshadow palette is. Revolutions ‘Fortune Favours The Brave’. 

My ‘Fortune Favours the Brave’ palette in all its glory!

With an incredible array of colours from mattes to high shimmers and glitters, you can create any look you desire from casual, to sophiscated to a super glam evening look! I wanted to do this post last, as over the past couple of weeks I’ve been building up a few pictures using different shades on the palette to show you guys.

Sun Set Hour, Super Gold and Creme.

Pink Diamond, Favour and New World.

The quality of the eyeshadows are amazing considering the super affordable price. They are so easy to blend, I use the double ended brush that comes with the palette as well as Revolutions eyeshadow blender (shown in Revolution Mini Haul – Part 1!) to apply. The eyeshadows are also so, so pigmented that the colours honestly look as great on than they do in the palette! 
Caffeine Fix, Latte, Creme and Shimmer
Green Machine, Transformer and Smoothie

The beautiful ‘Fortune Favours The Brave’ eyeshadow palette features a clear overlay sheet with each eyeshadow shades personal name. I have featured the particular ones I have used captioned under each picture for you guys to feast your eyes on! 

Have any of you beauties grabbed yourselves a palette?

Basic Browns // how to look good simply.

A simplified brown face with a dewy effect is the perfect look for this summer. To create this basic brown look, you need to start right at the beginning of your face, before the foundation has been applied. Gather your bits and compare them… Do they all have the same tone of brown? This part is so important if you want to look sophisticated and not like a clown! This means matching everything from your eyebrow colour, your contour, to your eyeshadow shade and lipstick! This is how I created mine;

On a average day I religiously wear eyeliner, the bigger and more cat eyed the better is the rule in my books. I think eyeliner, over the years, has become more of a habit to me… rarely do you see my pampered face without it. However, this summer I don’t want thick black heavy eyes and I’m really starting to get bored of the same childish looking cat eye! Therefore, recently I have been adapting my look, dumbing down my heavy makeup looks for a summery swap, without loosing the overall made-up feel.

Contour. βœ”οΈ Without contour there’s just no point! A well contoured face beats ANY item of makeup at the moment and it wouldn’t be the same without a highlighted cheekbone that can be seen from space!

The more dewy you can make your face look, the more you’ll shine and love it. Trust me!

I’m absolutely loving Revolutions contour palletes to create the perfect dewy look! I have been obsessively using both my cream contour pallete aswell as my powder contour pallete to shape and define my features. The palletes are amazingly matched colour-wise, making them a perfect combination! Starting with the cream contour, drawing lines all over my face like a mad plastic surgeon I sculpt my face into perfect shape. In addition to this, once blended, I use the matching colours on the powder palette to darken and highlight areas even further. 

I love, love, love the shimmery highlighter that is featured within the cream contour palette! It’s extremely shiny and beautiful! 

I used a few layers of black mascara to extend and emphasise my eyelashes and the middle brown eyeshadow from the smokey eye Bourjois trio pallete to add colour to my lids. For my brows I used studio 10 eyebrow liner to shape and Barry M’s brow shape kit to fill and highlight below the brown and near the tear duct of each eye – helping add to the dewy effect.
It feels incredibly lighter and I feel more summery without a heavy liner across my eye – it makes the perfect summer look!

Friday in Falmouth – My Look

Today I went for a classy monochrome look! 

It’s my boyfriends dad and soon to be step-mums wedding on the 3rd of March so we have come home from Southampton and are currently staying with my mum and dad in Falmouth (his dad lives in Porthtowan so it’s not a long car journey at all!).

I absolutely love coming home, to see mum and dad, of course, and my gorgeous cats!!! But I also love coming home to having full access of my mums wardrobe! – Though she may not know it! Sorry mum x

Through the term time buying new outfits is a no-go on a student budget, so rummaging through mums clothes and finding incredible pieces she may not give a  second thought to is the way I go about re-styling my wardrobe for uni!

 

A classic white blouse with black skinny jeans never goes wrong!!
 
Today I found this beautifully shirt from Jaeger, presumably a now vintage item! I’m in love with the off-White colouring and threaded diamond pattern! I dressed it up with a simple black pair of jeans from River Island and a pair of black, faux leather, ankle boots, also from River Island! 

  
My makeup look is shown in my previous blog post however I’ve used No7 Moisture Drench lipstick in Plum Beautiful to finish the look with a hint of LFW and NYFW inspiration!
