5 Faves From Fuschia..

I am delving into my Autumn colour's majorly at the minute.
Darker bases and deeper eye/lip shades make Winter my favorite time of the year for makeup play.
One brand that I have been playing around with quite a bit this year is Fuschia makeup. With a store right on my doorstop, it's just too easy to go in and swatch their lovliness at every opportunity. 

I also launched a giveaway on my Facebook page recently, in which i asked my followers to name their one beauty product that they just cant be without, and was delighted to see Fuschia mentioned a million times. So, Iv'e compelled a top 5 of my own Fuschia favorites that I, myself cant be without. 
Here goes...

1. Mineral Powder Foundation in "Toffee".
These silky mineral powders brush onto the skin, and can be easily built up to the level of coverage that you require. My favorite thing about these powders is the dewy finish that they leave. The skin looks fresh and the powder feels so light. I wear this alone during the day, and over a full coverage foundation going out at night.  

2. Boom Brow in "Deep Brunette".
What can I say except get it right now, if you haven't tried it already! Creamy, smudge proof and glides over the brows with complete ease. I absolutely adore this product. I have literally tried a hundred brow products and this one is the best by a million miles.

3. Advanced Long Wear Concealer in "Medium Light".
My skin is in absolute shreds at the minute so this is my ultimate must have. Completely covers dark circles, blemishes and pigmentation spots (which i have so much of). And, most importantly it does not crease or slide off the skin. This product also makes my job as a makeup artist a whole lot easier. Everyone wants that flawless, fresh base so before you look to foundations, nab this wonder product. 

4. Pro Collection Palettes.
In a nutshell, the best thing that has ever happened to me. 
Magnetic palette to store all your favorite shades of everything. My shadow collection is growing at a rapid rate in these pretty pink palettes. My top 3 shadows are;
Iman- A shimmery purple with a cranberry undertone. 
Matilda- A rich chocolate brown with a slight shimmer.
Pennies From Heaven- Rich copper. Perfect for blending out any shade or fab on the lid with a bold black liner. 

5. Setting Spray.
A super light, moisturising mist that holds your makeup in place for hours on end. And it smells like baby powder, bonus!

Yonka Eau Micellaire

First review of the week goes to Yonka Eau Micellaire.
In truth, I haven't dabbled too much in the Yonka range to date as I found it all a bit confusing. What I have tried before now was their Ambre Soothing Massage Oil Candle which I absolutely adore. 

Anyway, about 2 months ago I was sent a bottle of the Eau Micellaire to give it a whirl, and give it a whirl I did.

Micellaire water has become all the rage over the last year, but funnily enough I had never tried it. I've always been a baby wipe by day/cream cleanser in the shower kind of girl. Shame on me! 

I did get stuck into this product straight away though, as my skin was in absolute shreds from changing my regular skincare brand and I do wear a lot of makeup for work which did not help matters at all. 

I was hooked from the first swipe...

This cleanser can be used on face, lips and eyes so the aggravation level if you hit the wrong spot is nada! No burning around the eyes or stinging on the sensitive areas of the face, 
With ingredients like sea lavender, chamomile and mint oils and stem extract, it is super, super soothing on the skin. Truly beautiful! So beautiful, in fact, that I have repurchased twice now. This product is so refreshing, I would put makeup on just to remove it!!
I am researching the full Yonka range at the minute, and look forward to a little spree on payday to try out some more products from this fabulous brand.
