I have bought some new products recently and I want to share some of them with you. I am no beauty expert, I am just a normal woman attempting to look my best. Every woman wants to look and feel glamorous from time to time. I have many days where I walk down the street and wonder why I look so rough compared to the glamorous women I walk past. It’s on these days that I need a beauty boost.
I am also on a bit of a mission to try and find some natural beauty brands that I like. I want to know what I am putting on my body and intend to do my part to make the beauty industry just a little kinder to the environment. I want to do a post about the top natural beauty brands, but I am still in the process of finding them.
Anyways, back to this blog post. When you feel just a little bit insecure about yourself it helps to go and buy yourself a few cheeky beauty products. You don’t have to splash out, just buy something that will help you to feel good about yourself. A new nail varnish, some killer lipstick or a luxurious moisturiser. Here are some products I have bought recently to give myself a beauty boost.
To manage frizzy curls
I have naturally wavy hair. It’s not the sort of hair that just springs into gorgeous curls when it dries. My hair seems to look different every time I try encourage its natural curls. I have spent years looking for a good curling serum/cream/gel/mousse. I hate the ones that make your hair feel crunchy, they take me back to when I was sixteen and used to cover my hair in mousse. Not a good look. This Aussie stuff seems to be a far better option. It feels like silk in your hands and makes your hair smell amazing. It brings out my natural curls and also tames the layer of frizz that I get when I leave my hair curly.
To minimize the appearance of pores
Who knew that covering up your pores was an actual thing? Porefessional is actually a primer in disguise. It helps to reduce fine lines and make your skin look and feel smooth. I put it on under my foundation and it helps it to stay on longer. You may not see the point of this product but trust me, you need to use to it understand. It’s porefection…
To make your cheeks pop
One of my best friends is a Bare Minerals addict. She raves about the stuff and says it’s the only makeup she will use on her skin. I have to say she looks bloody gorgeous all the time, which is obviously not just because of Bare Minerals. I thought a good product to start with would be the blusher. It feels such a luxury using this product. The power just glides across your skin effortlessly and leaves a lovely subtle pink glow on your cheeks. I try not to use it on a daily basis because I don’t want it to run out. I use it as a special blusher for special occasions, evenings out or days when I need a beauty boost.
To tame those brows and show off your eyes
This is a makeup product I can’t live without. It would be a tragedy if I had to leave the house with bare eyebrows with zero definition. I feel weak just thinking about it. Not only does this handy eye kit help you to define your brows it also comes with an industrial strength concealer and three natural eye shadows. I use the eyeshadow so much because it is very subtle and seems to really suit my skin tone. A quick touch up using this kit will instantly give you a beauty boost.
To pamper your skin
Nothings solves a beauty crisis like a good old bath. Add an indulgent scrub and you will begin to feel like yourself again. I love getting out the bath with soft, glowing skin. This scrub uses organic botanical and essential oils and leaves your skin feeling super smooth. It’s definitely not cheap, but a worthy investment if you are in urgent need of a beauty boost (I don’t actually own a pot I sampled some of my mums, shhhh).
To nourish your hair
I have been dying my hair quite a lot lately (I recently went from blonde to brunette) and have noticed my hair needs a bit of TLC. This natural leave-in conditioner is an ideal rescue remedy for my hair. I don’t really know if leave-in conditioners actually do much but at least I feel like I am doing something to protect my hair.
