Thought it was about time to mix up my blog content, and what better way to do so than with a beauty post!
I don’t often talk beauty, other than Forever related posts, mainly ‘cos it’s not my forte, and I much prefer fashion.
However, recently I’ve done a few beauty things, including quite a drastic change!
So, here are my recent purchases…
So there I am shopping around in Boots in Lancaster, looking for a new foundation when I see the greatest offer: 4 mini items for £15, and a free makeup bag. To my surprise, the offer was by Benefit.
Now I’ve always had great results from using benefit products, and the They’re Real mascara is one product I would swear by! It’s definitely a makeup bag essential. And so, this “deal” really excited me.
- Benetint lip & cheek stain
- Posietint lip & cheek stain
- Gimme brow (no.5)
- High Beam highlighter
As I said, I was after a new foundation in Boots, and actually looking around, I went for a Max Factor one.
I also wanted to mention this saviour for my skin, which is actually a Forever Living product. It’s the Epiblanc.
And then in other news, which is only really big for myself…
I’ve had a drastic change of hair colour.
Now, don’t get me wrong I loved it copper/ginger. And I wrote a post on it and a SCAN article (my uni newspaper).
But, my roots were starting to show, and the more I dyed it the more orange it went. And then when I didn’t keep on top of dyeing it, my hair started to fade into a brown colour. Not exactly what I wanted.
Now I really wanted to dye it silver but it’s major effort, and you’re supposed to do it on clean (not dyed) hair and I would’ve had to have bleached mine.
I did try (and failed) to bleach my hair but I honestly just ended up looking like a cheese string because of the ginger. The roots ressembled the white cheese as they’d gone platinum blonde and the rest, particularly the middle section the orange mature cheddar cheese. *major eye roll*.
So I quickly rectified all of that straight after I did it, about 4 weeks ago now.
But earlier this week I just fancied a change.
So the colour I have gone is this…
It’s called “Natural Dark Burgundy Brown”, and it’s turned out a lot darker than I expected. So after the dyeing process I did have a little bit of a heart-attack.
But if you know me, you’ll know I’m quite partial to an ombré. So I actually bleached the ends using this:
I wanted the ends rose gold. Warning: this is such a difficult colour to achieve, even with expert dye like Schwarzkopf.
But anyway here’s me being a lil’ piggy for you. Note: this was prior to the rose gold.
I’ve a couple “life” posts coming out soon, so check them out when they’re live!
