TUTORIAL: Festival Hairstyles

Viagra billiger bestellen It’s that time of year again. The sun comes out and our instagram feed fills up with beautiful outfits and festival hairstyles. I was lucky enough to go to Coachella this year in America and got so much inspiration for summer hair so I wanted to write a post about it.

http://ayto-daganzo.org/?kefir=zt-zoomtrader-com&029=0a zt zoomtrader com I’ve always been a bit afraid of trying new hairstyles because I have tried to follow a few tutorials and they never end up looking as they should do! So I wanted to create 3 styles that are really easy to do, but still look really good! The first thing that you’ll need to do is make sure you wash your hair with a decent shampoo and conditioner that is going to keep your hair nice and clean for a few days and isn’t going to leave it too heavy to style. So I’d recommend using the Pantene Pro V Expert Collection Hydra Intensify Shampoo and Conditioner. I have really damaged, coloured hair so this little duo is amazing at making everything feel much better again! My hair felt so soft after using this but unlike some of the other collections I’ve used like this it didn’t make my hair feel heavy which makes it impossible to style!

Flip the plait over one side and grip it in place. Then find a hair tie or wired band to lock it in place and finish your outfit.

First of all you need to make sure the top of your hairs and the lengths are nice and smooth and are going to style well. I’ve picked the Pantene Pro V Expert Collection Velvet creme infusion which is one of my go-to styling products of the moment. It smooths everything down and gets rid of flyaway hairs but doesn’t leave my hair looking greasy. Once that’s applied, find a pretty hair band and place it over your head but don’t tuck it under your hair. Then taking sections of about 1 inch, twirl the hair round and tuck it through the band at the back. Repeat this all the way around your head until all the hair is up. This look needs a bit of maintenance as you go through the day in terms of putting a few bits back in if it falls out but it looks so beautiful!

http://www.brabantgroen.nl/?kvochka=iqoption-contatti-tel&3bb=6e iqoption contatti tel Finally onto the third look which is really good for all hair lengths and is vintage inspired! Take a section of hair from the front of your head and use your fingers to create a roll of hair that finishes at the front of your face to one side. Pin it in place and then take some hairspray to set it. I’ve chosen my Nioxin 3D Styling NioSpray Strong Hold. I’ve raved about Nioxin treatments for years in terms of thickening and helping to grow my hair, so I was so excited when they announced they were bringing out a styling range. This hairspray thickens your hair so it looks full of volume, and it doesn’t feel sticky when you spray it in. I’m on my third can in just a few months! You can either leave the hair like this or find an accessory to place around your head or to the side. I’m obsessed with flowers for festivals so I’ve chosen these.

A Day In The Life of a YouTuber

opzioni binarie ti fregano i soldi It appears miracles can happen. Never ever did I think I would be able to leave the house and go a full day not only without topping up my powder, but without even putting much of it on in the first place. I have always suffered with shine, and as the day goes on my makeup slides off and it just seems to get worse. Garnier set me the challenge of putting their new Pure Active Matte Control to the test. It’s an anti-shine anti-blemish moisturiser that claims to be able to control shine for 8 hours non-stop. Being the cynic I am, I didn’t think that one product alone could do this. So I mixed things up a little, and filmed an entire day in my life showing every step of the day and my skin and makeup. I mean, if the shine was going to show, I wanted you there to be able to judge it for yourselves! I was a bit on the tough side too, I actually put it through its paces for about 10 hours.

opzioni binarie oggi garnier1

Here’s the product that’s about to shake things up in the moisturiser game. It’s all about shine control for combination to oily skin. First of all I love the texture, it’s a gel consistency but not as thick and waxy as some of my favourite primers like Benefits Porefessional or Becca which I know divide you when it comes to how they feel. Instead it feels like satin because it’s actually a gel. I literally couldn’t stop putting this on it made my skin feel so good and definitely looked a lot smoother. It smells nice, quite subtle, similar to other Garnier products if you’re familiar with those. That wasn’t the test for me though, as soft as it might be, I needed it to hold my makeup and stop any single bit of shine developing.

garnier2

I got ready with this as part of my morning routine, went to brunch in this, took the dogs for a walk in this, filmed under my lights with this and relaxed by the fire in the evening with this. 10 hours later and not one bit of grease or shine. I felt defeated, and I loved it. So much so that I raved about it in my monthly favourites and daily skincare and makeup routine. It contains mattifying Airlicium and Salicylic Acid which is the little miracle combination that explains the shine control.

One other thing for me that stood out was how hydrated my skin felt at the end of the day. Usually when I’m packing primer and powder on my face by the end of the day I have dry patches, hence why I seem to have such combination skin at the moment. This didn’t do that, so it’s a moisturiser and primer in one. And if you have combination or oily skin like I do, I would pretty much expect this will become your go-to product like it has mine! It’s £6.99 so being a 2 in 1 product, you are getting so much for your money. Sometimes when I find something for shine control it’s high end and expensive can make it more of a treat rather than a daily product. That’s why I really wanted to tell you about this in hope that it helps some of you who have the shine problem like I do!

Now my fear of leaving powder at home has changed into my fear of leaving this! But judge it for yourself – the camera can’t lie! Here’s a day in my life….product aside it’s a chance to be a little nosey and watch me filming behind the scenes and what I get up to in a typical day! Love Becky x

New Spring Skincare Routine

caudalie1

This weeks post is all about Spring skincare as I’ve been counting down the days for this warmer weather to finally arrive! One of the first things I do apart from changing my makeup, is to switch things up skincare wise. My skin is combination so I’m constantly battling with skin that can’t make its mind up, and I wanted to talk a little more about some of the products that have really helped. 

For the past year Caudalie skincare has stolen my heart and I just can’t get enough of their products. I wrote a post last year all about why I love the range, and now there is a new launch that I wanted to talk about. The beauty elixir and vinosource range have been staples in my bathroom that I can’t live without, but I’m switching things up a little and trying out a gorgeous new selection of their products.

caudalie2

The Polyphenol C15 range is designed to protect the skin from free radicals that we face everyday and to treat and help prevent wrinkles. My life is constantly on the move, I’m travelling to London each week, driving everywhere and spend a lot of time in the city. I protect my skin against the sun but to be honest I’ve never done anything to protect against the city air and the environment! First of all I want to talk about the overnight detox oil which I was already using last year as part of my skincare routine. For me this is the hero product of the range, I apply it before I go to bed and leave it to work its magic. It has honestly made such a difference, my skin is so much softer but it doesn’t leave me with greasy skin as it’s a dry oil – I notice such a difference when I don’t use this. All the products have anti-oxidant grape seed in and this one has carrot oil and lavender which make it smell amazing.

caudalie3

Next up are the moisturisers. The Broad Spectrum SPF20 Anti-Wrinkle Protect Fluid and the New Broad Spectrum SPF20 Anti-Wrinkle Protect Cream. I use the the fluid as my day moisturiser and it’s replaced my much-loved Elemis pro-collagen cream doing exactly the same thing. It’s packed with vitamin C and makes my skin feel and look a lot plumper which I like, basically I look less tired!! The new cream is lovely too, same smell as the rest of the range but this is slightly richer. On days when my skin is dry in places or sometimes overnight as a mask I use this.

Finally to finish the collection is the Anti-Wrinkle Defence serum and Anti-Wrinkle Eye and Lip cream. When I have more time in the morning I love using the serum especially if I’m having a bad skin day. It really helps smooth things over a little. My mum is a big fan of the eye and lip cream as it really makes a difference for her with tightening the skin. I don’t need that yet but I’m sure i’m not far off!

I’m actually doing a really fun giveaway for you all to celebrate the Spring arriving! 10 anti-oxidant boxes are up for grabs packed full of deluxe samples of all the range for you to try. All you need to do it go on twitter and follow @caudalieUK and @talkbeckytalk and tweet us using #WinSkincare. Do the same on Instagram following @caudalie and @talkbeckytalk and leave a comment using #WinSkincare under one of their pictures.

caudalie1

Also, you can make your own fun film over on the Caudalie website here which I did too. It’s basically a story of your life, and when you create one you’re entered to win a box too!

My entire collection of Spring skincare products will be over on my channel tomorrow here. So make sure you don’t miss that either. I know skincare can be a big investment so it’s really important to try it and get it right! Caudalie is a brand I have come to trust and love, and I’m pretty tough on skincare products because I have such difficult skin and this one has fast become one of my favourites! What’s your staple skincare product? Have you tried any of the Caudalie range? Becky x

NEW Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation SPF 40

foundation 1

Bobbi Brown has released the most gorgeous skin serum foundation and me along with some of you guys got to be a few of the first ones to get our hands on it. Make sure you read right until the end because I’m doing a really exciting giveaway for you all.

I’ve been a huge fan of Bobbi ever since I was growing up. I remember when I was little watching my mum use the beautiful black packaged products and saving up as soon as I was old enough to buy some of their makeup brushes. I’ve raved for the past few years about their hero corrector and shimmer block, so when I got the opportunity to meet some of you around the new launch I was so excited.

meetup

This was my makeup for my meetup in London last week and I want to talk about some of my favourite products from the range that they used. First of all my skin was prepped and primed. I have heard just about every blogger and beyond rave about Bobbi’s skincare, particularly the eye cream, so I was desperate to try it and see how it worked out for me and my combination skin!!

foundation3

First up the Intensive Skin Supplement which smells beautifully of grape and felt quite soft and smooth when it went on. The Hydrating Gel Cream has to be one of my favourite products. The tropical grass extract smell is amazing and it just felt so light when it went on, but still gave me the moisture I really need on the numerous dry patches I seem to be getting. I actually think the £38.50 price tag is pretty cheap compared to others on the market that are really similar. Finally, the hydrating eye cream that every raves about. It’s packed with aloe vera which I’ve always found works really well to get rid of any blemishes, and it absorbs really quickly so it doesn’t leave your concealer runny.

foundation 1

foudnation5

Onto makeup and my base was the new Intensive Skin Serum Foundation SPF 40. It’s designed to be a blend between a serum and foundation so you get all the benefits of a serum with things like lychee and mushroom extract but also get the coverage of a foundation. I was really impressed with how good it was at correcting my skin which has been blotchy and red recently. It’s a medium coverage which you can build up if you want and comes in 16 different shades. It’s designed for normal to dry skin and is so lovely and moisturising, so I added a powder to take any unwanted shine away. I’m so excited for you guys to try this, it’s exclusive to John Lewis nationwide but you can get it online from BobbiBrown.co.uk from 2nd April.

foundation6

To finish the look we used the Bobbi Brown Corrector and Concealer to get rid of any dark circles and then give a flawless finish, these are my favourite products out of the whole collection I’ve used so many pots up over the last few years. The staying power is really good and they don’t crease up, I think it’s safe to say this is my favourite concealer I own. Then we used one of the new brightening bricks. They are a bronzer, highlighter and blusher in one and I think will probably sell just as fast as the original shimmer bricks that everyone loved. On my lips we chose the Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks in pale pink which doubles up as a cream blush too. I think this might be a little too bight for me when it comes to using it as a blush as I stick to nudes but for the lips it was just perfect.

foundation7

To finish on the eyes we used the Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in karat to prime the lids and give a really nice base, followed with a mix of their gorgeous eyeshadows. I’ve included ‘wheat’ and ‘grey’ in this post which can also double up as powders to fill in your brows.

So now to the exciting part! I’m going to be giving away one of the grey eye shadows and the gorgeous lip and cheek pot. All you have to do is comment below and tell me which product from the range is your favourite. It was so lovely to get to meet some of you, and I really hope i’ll be able to do it again soon and meet even more of you! Becky x

Faking it: Bondi Sands Tan

It’s that time of year again, it’s getting warmer and all I can think about is getting out the summer clothes and hopefully having a bit of a (fake) tan to go with them! I’ve dabbled over the years with pretty much everything out there so I was really excited when I heard a new one was coming to the UK.

bondi sands

Bondi Sands is already huge over in Australia. It was created by a couple of Aussies and getting straight to the point….you’re not going to smell like biscuits! One of my pet hates about tan is the fusty smell and this one has finally bucked the trend. It’s coconut scented so literally smells like cocoa butter. When I walk into my sisters room as she’s been using it I’m always asking her what body butter she’s got on and it’s this.

The tan comes in both a lotion and a foam, so whatever texture you prefer they’ve got it covered. They also come in two shades, light/medium and dark. I usually use darker tans but the colour on the lighter one is enough for me at the moment. Come summer or nights out i’ll be reaching for the dark more and more. It’s really easy to apply, I had a few patches that needed blending but I get that with all tans. You need to leave it on for about 6 hours and then wash it off. I tend to do this overnight and sleep in dark clothes so it doesn’t ruin the sheets.

This has fast become one of my new favourite tans, and at £14.99 it compares really well with the high end ones that I think it rivals.

The Bondi Sands range is available in Superdrug or online here.

Aurelia Skincare: Review

Make way for a new skincare favourite, how have I only just found out about this range? I was in Liberty in London a few weeks ago having afternoon tea and bumped into a lovely girl who watches my YouTube channel. I love it when I can have a good chat about all things makeup and she recommended a brand that they sell in store there called Aurelia. I’ve got to be honest I’d never heard of it before, but that’s what made it even more exciting, I love finding new things that I’ve never tried.

I’m pretty fussy when it comes to skincare. I have combination skin after having pained years of having acne so I know what I like, what I don’t, and I tend to stick to it! The packaging of this range started to win me over as soon as I saw it. It’s what I call ‘tidy packaging’ – clean and fuss free but looks like it’s a high quality product.

aurelia1

My hero product of the range has to be the Miracle Cleanser. It’s picked up quite a few beauty awards and I can see why. The first thing that hits you is the smell. I am obsessed with Eucalyptus so to have it in a cleanser is just divine. It’s a really strong aromatic smell which I have to say I’m a big fan of. It’s also packed with Chamomile, Rosemary and Bergamot, basically smell senses heaven! You rub the cream cleanser onto dry skin and then it comes with a muslin cloth that you soak in warm water before melting all your makeup off. If you’re a fan of the Soap and Glory hot cloth cleanser then you will LOVE this but it comes with the higher price tag of £34. Well worth it in my opinion. My skin felt so soft and hydrated after using it and my skin has really cleared up too. Plus you can buy extra muslin cloths so you have a fresh one for each day of the week.

aurelia3

Next up is the Refine and Polish Miracle Balm. This one has really divided me so i’l start with the positives. It smells the same as the cleanser and has pretty much the same plant ingredients so the aroma is gorgeous. It’s a beautiful scrub which turns into a mask if left on as it’s filled with peptides and oils, and then you just rinse it off with water. When I first put it on I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it, it’s a waxy/balm texture and usually that freaks me out as I’m so scared of breaking out, but as I’ve learnt over the years, oil actually balances out oil so I have to force myself past that initial reaction! It’s really soft in terms of a scrub which I love and felt so nice when it was on, almost a warming feeling. All the horrible dry skin I get had gone after using it, and it’s become my staple scrub/mask in my bathroom. When I left it on as a mask, I genuinely think my skin has never really felt this soft. The downside is the price. At £57 this is definitely going to have to be more of a treat scrub for me, it’s definitely one of my new favourite scrubs but the price tag means I will be savouring this to last the year!

aurelia4

Last but not least, the day and night moisturisers. Both of them have a whipped texture, I usually prefer moisturisers a little silkier but these felt nice and soft and not too heavy. The day one smells of Jasmine and Tubersose and the night of Lavender and Rose, only slightly though so if you’re not overly fussed on scent then you’d be fine with these. They don’t knock my all time favourite moisturisers (Elemis marine cream)  off the top spot, but they do come pretty close.

Aurelia skincare available at Liberty in London or online here.

Changing the Nail Polish Game – Nails Inc

I’ve been meaning to write this post for sometime now, partly because of my obsessive love with nail polishes, and partly because I was totally unaware that Nails Inc had had a bit of a facelift! I’ve always been a huge fan of their polishes for quality and colour range, but now they’ve stepped up a notch, and I’m totally head over heels in love with their new (ish) packaging.

nailsinc5

nailsinc1

The Autumn/Winter collection is simply gorgeous. They’ve introduced new colours, new formulas, and most noticeably they’ve introduced more square, slick, stylish bottles for some of the collections with so much more wow factor to them. First of all don’t make the mistake I made, lift the top to find the twist top, I was left slightly confused at first when I couldn’t open it (silly me!). The brushes themselves are gorgeous – nice and thick to hold plenty of product which is why I’ve always loved how these polishes go on.

nailsinc2

The gel polishes are slightly thicker and give a plumping effect with a bit of shine, these are my favourite. Two that I’ve fallen in love with are New Oxford Street (a gorgeous deep purple) and Uptown (a pinky nude). At £15 they aren’t the cheapest but will last so much longer than my fave drugstore ones.

naisinc6

There are also Nailkale polishes which are formulated with kale packed with vitamins and said to hydrate and nourish. Whichever range you choose, I swear by these polishes for the zero chip factor.

nailsinc7

A few more bits that I want to rave about. The first is the kensington caviar base coat which is really thick and comes out slightly pink. It’s the best base coat I have because it completely stops the nails from going yellow. Also, they’ve added a gorgeous top top which basically turns the nail finish into a gel. And when you’re ready to take the polish off, they’ve introduced a super easy polish remover pot. I usually hate these, mainly because they don’t work! This one took me by surprise, after a few swirls around the polish comes off. I am hooked, it’s so much easier than using a pad and remover and easy to take if you’re away.

GLAMGLOW Face Mask – Worth The Hype?

The cult-fave GLAMGLOW youthmud face mask is something that’s been on my list to try and review for longer than I can remember. It’s probably the most talked about mask and I really wanted to know if it was worth the hype. The £25 price tag for a fairly small jar (15ml) has always stopped me from buying it on a whim, but I finally caved!

glamglow1

It claims to be a 10-minute facial in a jar, which is a tag line that had me hooked because I’m looking for a quick fix in face masks. On top of that, it’s supposed to help clear up problem skin which is something that’s been an issue for me lately. Lots of you know that I suffered with bad acne for years, I actually had to go on roaccutane to clear it up but I still get the odd breakout when I’m tired or stressed.

glamglow2

First of all the packaging is gorgeous. I’m a sucker for packaging and this one ticks all the right boxes, the pot itself looks so cute in my bathroom. The mask is pretty easy to apply. When it dries it tightens and a few of the bits tend to flake off. It’s packed full of things like clay, minerals, green tea, cucumber and lavender – pretty much everything I turn to when I’m having a bad skin day! Plus it’s paraben-free with no artificial colours or fragrances which I really try to look for now.

glamglow3

So is it worth the hype? Well, I have to admit, yes it is. My skin cleared up after using this twice so on the spot front, it did the trick. It definitely reduced redness for me too, it’s supposed to brighten skin as well and my skin did look less tired. Just having a look now I’ve actually found it on sale, a larger pot (50ml) for £35 on Zest Beauty. I’ve wasted so much money on face masks that don’t work, so if you want one that gets to the point, I think I’ve just found it. What’s your favourite mask? Becky x

January Beauty Favourites

One of the main things I wanted to tell you guys about this January, if you hadn’t already seen some of them, I’m doing tea videos over on the DrinksTube YouTube channel! It’s literally a dream come true to be able to film tea all day long, and I’ve been making lots of recipes too for you to try. So make sure you head on over to the channel and subscribe here right now! If you don’t like tea, there are so many other drinks recipes, I hope you like it :)

Talking of tea, go grab a cuppa. I hope you enojy this favourites video, I’ve been trying out some new releases and OMG some makeup from Primark which has become my makeup staple and is so cheap!! Happy watching! Becky x

Date Night / Valentines Day Makeup

Roses are red, violets are blue, and Valentines Day makeup has to feel, well, just you. OK so I’ve never been that good at poems but one thing I do believe is that men/women do really prefer the ‘less is more’ when it comes to what we put on our face. The truth of it is, Valentines Day you should just try to be yourself. For obvious reasons, lips are usually the main focus of the day! So I’ve created 3 different looks for your lips in hope that you’ll all find one that suits you!

lips9

I announced last year that I was going to be doing some really exciting beauty videos over on a new channel called Beauty Recommended where every Friday me and some of my friends answer one of Britain’s biggest beauty questions. Before you recreate any of the looks below you need to make sure your lips are nice and smooth, free of any dry or chapped skin which is a huge problem for me! So I’ve filmed a video over on Beauty Recommended showing you how to do this, make sure you subscribe to their channel here and take a look at the video after you’ve read this post here.

PG lips 7

The first look I’ve created is for all of you red lipstick lovers out there. For me, this is a really traditional Valentines Day look. Deep red lips full of colour and plumpness. For this I’ve chosen the Max Factor Colour Elixir lipstick in Ruby Tuesday. This is probably one of the most stunning and striking reds I own, and doesn’t look too bright or cheap. I love the consistency of this lipstick, as soon as you apply it, it feels so soft. It’s actually packed with things to moisturise your lips – one of my pet hates with lipsticks is when it leaves your lips dry, this actually smells really nice too! You can pick it up from the drugstore for around £7.99.

lips1

lips3 lips2

Next up, one for the bubbly pink types! This look is for those who love a bright lip and want to have a lot of fun with their makeup! I am absolutely head over heels in love with this look and think this is going to be a favourite for me over the summer! The Max Factor Colour Elixir Giant Pen Stick in vibrant pink is the most pigmented colour I think I own. You won’t get the stickiness of a gloss with this, so it’s far more low maintenance. It feels quite light too and it’s really really really easy to apply and top up. I am so in love with this I want to get the other shades now too!

lips6 lips5 lips4

Finally, I’ve left my favourite look until last. The glossy nude, for those of us who want to go with the less is more look. Very natural, but with a little bit of plumpness and shine. I’m using a combination of the Max Factor Colour Elixir Lip Liner in Pink Petal and the Max Factor Colour Elixir Gloss in Pristine Nude These have been two staples in my makeup bag throughout the winter. The liner is really easy to use, I’m a big fan of this nude because it gives my lips a bit of natural definition and makes them look a little fuller. The gloss is definitely in my top 5 must have glosses, mainly for its staying power, the beautiful finish and the fact it smells so delicious!

lips8 lips7

For the rest of your makeup, remember the fail safe tutorial – just be you. For me that’s keeping things quite simple. I’ve gone for a bronze sparkly eye look using my Max Factor Excess Shimmer eyeshadow in bronze and Benefit They’re Real liner and mascara, and my MAC blusher in gingerly. But play around with what you feel comfortable with, you’re date has fallen, or is falling in love with you for just being you. If they’re not then cancel your table booking and plan a night out with your girlie friends who love you for just the way you are!

Remember to check out my video over on Beauty Recommended here and subscribe. Whatever you’re doing this Valentines Day, whether you’re single, engaged, married or spending the day miles apart, remember the most important thing….“be you, because everyone else is taken”
