The Weekly Round Up #81


This week has been a scorcher and as always there's a few things that have been essentials in my routines this week. 

However first of all I wanted to thank everyone who has been so supportive over the post I uploaded on Friday, which was a little peek into my sketchbook. This blog has always and will always be for my passion of all things beauty, but I like to include some other bits and pieces that are important to me so you can get to know me a bit better. If you want to check out that post, just click here

Anyway, onto this weeks round up...

First is the L'Oreal True Match Foundation, I haven't used this in a while as I have been using other foundations that match my skin tone better but since applying self tanner this matches me pretty darn perfectly to be honest. I love everything about this foundation, and if you want to see why, check out my The Best Foundation For... post here but I dug out the Real Techniques Buffing Brush as I find that works best with most foundations, but definitely for the L'Oreal TM.

As you've probably already seen, I am obsessed with bronzers this month and these two from Maybelline and Famous are by far my most used. They're the perfect shade for my skin tone whether I'm self tanned or au naturelle. 

Next is this Blue Dress which I believe is from Dorothy Perkins a long time ago, but I have really loving it as it goes great with my self tanner. The colour, the fit, everything about this dress makes it perfect for the summer and whether it's for work or play, it's a staple in my wardrobe. I've had lots of compliments when I wear this and it makes me feel great when I wear it.

Speaking of self tanner, I am still in love with the St Tropez Express Self Tan, and I have a feeling this is going to feature in a lot of favourites as I just cannot get over how beautiful it looks on my skin, it's the perfect tan shade and even though I am very fair, it doesn't make me look orange or unnatural.

GlamGlow SuperMud Mask I've had a few friends on my chin so I have been using this to get rid of them and I apply it on for about 10 minutes every night (normally whilst I'm in the shower) and it's cleared them up no problem. I love this mask and I don't know how many times I have mentioned it in my favourites but as you already know I only include things I truly am loving and this is definitely one of my favourite ever skincare products.

I've been loving these two brushes this week, first is the Real Techniques Essential Crease Brush which I love to apply my shadows into the crease, and then the other I'm not sure which brand it is but it's basically a pointed pencil brush type thing which is perfect for blending out shadow along my lower lashline. They're incredible brushes and ones I've used every single day this week.

The Barry M Bold Black Eyeliner is by far the blackest, most long lasting, pigmented eyeliner I've ever used and I love it.

Finally is the Soap & Glory For Daily Use which is a 6 in 1 moisturiser that has been keeping my skin hydrated throughout the day, as this hot weather we've had this week has just dried out my skin like a biatch.

The TV show I have been obsessed with this week is The Blacklist. It's a typical me show as it's all about the FBI and a criminal helping to catch the worst of the worst criminals in the world. It's very interesting, and the main guy (the criminal) Raymond Reddington played by James Spader is such a twisted, manipulative SOB, but his character just blows my mind. It's a good one to watch if you're looking for a new TV show to sink your teeth in to. Season 3 of Orange is the new black is next on my watch list.

Starting from tomorrow I will be posting everyday for the entire month of July, and for the first week it will be all about the Summer Edit Week where I will show you my essentials, long wearing makeup and share you a few tips too. So make sure you come back tomorrow which will be my essentials for summer. 

What have you loved this week?
