Beauty Essentials

Over the last few weeks I’ve been sharing my must have beauty products from the London Drugs Beauty Event that I attended. You can see the last two posts HERE & HERE. For years, I’ve always been the girl to only purchase makeup if it was necessary – if it needed to be replenished. These days I’m more willing to try out all new colors and products and have a little fun with it all!

Today I’m sharing with you my new essentials from Revlon and Tweezerman. Revlon is no stranger to the blog as I’ve shown you many of their products before and I’m thrilled to share with you some new items that I’m currently loving! Before the London Drugs Beauty Event I had never heard of Tweezerman…thank gooooossshh that I was introduced because I have a big fan now. They had started out as a company producing beauty tools for your nails and face – such as clippers and tweezers but now they have entered the world of makeup brushes and the verdict is stellar.

Lips - Colorstay Moisture Stain 045 New York Scene | 015 Barcelona Nights | 035 Miami Fever
Eyeliner – Skinny Liquid Liner Blackout
Mascara – Bold Lacquer 001 Blackest Black

Over the last few posts it’s pretty apparent that I’m into all different types of lip stains. All of their own reasons and applications. These Revlon stains apply so easily and softly and you won’t over do it. The texture is silky when wet but once it dries you will have that baby on for a full 12 hours… it didn’t even rub off onto my drinking glass!

The liquid liner is pretty great - I would say it’s on par with other liquid liners… the tip is an ideal size for application on my eyes.

The Tweezerman brush game has entered the beauty world with full force and they pretty much hit the ground running. My go to brushes were Quo – as the hairs never fall off. It’s been almost a month that I’ve been using the Tweezerman brushes and no hairs have fallen off and the application is wonderful every time I use them. Cleaning them is also a cinch. I’ve been using the pointed concealer brush for my eye shadow application in the creases of my eyes and it works beautifully.

All of these products can be found at your local London Drugs beauty department.

Summer Outfit Inspiration

The other day Leonie said to me “You’re such a colorful dresser.” I stared at her for a moment in confusion. All of my outfits on the blog and in reals have (for the last year or so) consisted of black, white, grey and blue denim. I may throw in a blush or camouflage print every now and then but for the most part – always a shade or neutral. I wonder what it is that would make her think I’m a colorful dresser? Could it be the way I wear them or just my personality shining through?

If you take a look at my closet – the only colors are 1 blush tank and 1 red tank – that’s it! The Editor In Chief of Poppy Magazine once quoted “Randa has the best understanding of neutrals that I’ve ever seen – she literally makes them not neutral.” … maybe she was onto something?

Above are some images that are currently inspiring me. For more images check out my Pinterest HERE.

Beauty Essentials

Last week I shared with you my must have beauty products from Lise Watier and Almay and today we’ll take a look at more from Annabelle, NYX & Prestige. Like I had mentioned in last week’s post – I attended the London Drugs Beauty Event alongside other local influencers to learn and test out the new products soon to be rolling out at London Drugs. Here is a week two breakdown of more of my favorite items. Anabelle 1

Annabelle 2

Lip Gloss – Beem
Lip Liner – Buff
Eye Liner – Eyeink black
Mascara – Big Show black | Expandable black
Bronzer – Biggy Zebra Powder

I’ve been using the nude lip liner with all of my light lip colors. It’s a total pain to purchase the appropriate color for every lipstick that I own but I find that a nude will still shape and outline your lips for a clean look, no matter what color you’re wearing.

I’m typically a one mascara at a time kinda girl but lately I’ve been simultaneously using these mascaras to create a full look with the Big Show wand then handling all of the little missed hairs and bottom line with the Expandable wand.

NYX 1

NYX 2

NYX 3

Eyeshadow Combo – DCP03 Stormy SkiesEye Liner – Two Timer Liner TT01 Jet Black
Lip Gloss – BLG14 Madeleine

I tend to not stray too far from the nude and natural colors for my eyes so this NYX set was perfect. The application is a little light so you may find yourself layering but it’s great for shading.

The eye liner is also a hit. I only use liquid on my top lid and a pencil on my bottom – this pen has me covered for both.

Prestige 1

Prestige 2

Eye Shadow – Bronze TIE05 | Copper TIE03
Eye Liner – Ultra Black Semi-Matte TDP01
Lipstick – Lip Crayons TIJ01 Bare It All | TIJ04 Party Shine
Correcting Pen – PMR01

I am new to the Prestige brand and haven’t heard of them before attending the LD Beauty event. They are currently in the process of re-branding their company and what a brand it’s become! I was shown every single liner and shadow they have for the new collection and I was legitimately amazed by the application. These colors are more for a night out when you want to get a little crazy with your look. I’m really into their correcting pen – any little mistake I make with my eye makeup I can just erase it with the pen!
