Revolution Mini Haul – Part 2!

So if you’ve been reading my previous posts (which I highly recommend you do!)  you would have read my Part 1 post on my mini Revolution Makeup haul, in which I expressed my love for their sculp and blend brush collection!! In this post I want to tell you about the next bits in my mini haul; bronzer, compressed powder and baked highlighter… I know, how good does a baked highlighter sound!! 


These three bits complete my face when it comes to morning makeup!

I use the pressed powder over my foundation in order to contour on top, this allows the contour to go on smoothly instead of sticking to the foundation! I use my bronzer over my contour to add extra colour and shade on edge of my forehead and of course the highlight is used to highlight and enhance my cheekbones!!

This is me using all three products in this post πŸ™‚

As you can see the baked highlighter leaves a beautiful golden shimmer, I brought mine in the ‘Golden Lights‘ shade, it was the brightest of them all… The more shiny the better!


The powders come in super handy packaging as well which is just a bonus! Featured with a slide out case inside is a pad for application and a mirror on the back!!


Hope you love these products as much as I do! 

1 more post left to go of this amazing Revolution mini haul… Trust me, I’ve saved the best till last!!

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!
