Cover up those nasty spots !

So prevention is the best cure ladies for any of you who haven't read my skin care routien and how to keep the skin flawless please check out my blog post on quinaderm. The best easiest way to get rid of those nasty lumps and bumps. However no matter what you do some times spots happen. It could be diet related, stress related, hormoanal changes , oily skin, the use of new products the lost is endless from time to time we all get those nasty spots. 

Here is my full face routien on how to cover up the nasty things and make it seem as though your skin is pretty much flawless ! 

So this is the after result of my step by step routien and here is the beginning spots that I'm trying to conceal below. As you can see I can a lovley little cluster of spots and even a white head on my chin and jawline typically because my spots are causes by hormoanal changes time on the months and stress related causes.

So here is my run though of products and how I apply them. 

To start I use benefits Porefessional on my larger pores mainly around my nose tapping into the skin in a patting motion. A cheaper option is baby skin by maybeline however for me Porefessional is worth every penny ! 

I then actually mix my 24 he by rimmel in with georgio armini lasting silk and apply al over my face. Doing so with clean fingers or damp beauty blender. I tend to no use brushes for foundation as they can harbour a lot of bacteria. 

I then take one of my favourite concealers from maybeline and apply to any visible spots letting it set for about 2-3 minuet before patting it in to blend. It's important to let the product dry on the skin in the areas it's needed more. 

I then will set with some powder the banna powder being a popular choice but any powder will do. 

I then go in with the lightest shade from collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer range. Just under the eyes and bridge of nose for a hilight effect. I will then powder under the eyes again to set them.

Finally I set the whole look with model in a bottle to keep it looking fresh and in place all day long highly recommend this product. 

Thank you for your time and I hoped this helped some body !

Lip pumps my experience.

August last year I was sent one of these bad boys as I'm sure my lovley readers may have seen my articles going into great detail about the pump. However after months of using it I feel I can give a true honest opinion and answer some of those questions I have received. Big lips are a big thing at the moment! For most of us naturally we aren't going to be able to achieve these plump Spanish looking lips with out fillers. But this is the lates trick we can try. The latest innovation being lip pumps .. Yes you read correctly lips pumps! 

Yes lip pumps are the world's first home use cosmetic lip enhancement beauty tool, clinically proven to increase lip volume and safe for intended use. With this suction tool, you can now enhance the appearance of both the upper and lower lip together or separately. The System is small, attractive, and portable. It can be used anytime and anywhere. Your lip enhancement session takes just a few minutes and the look lasts for up to two hours! And here is my exsperiance and questions answered!

Does it hurt ?
 No it is completely painless.

Does it last well ?
 I feel as though it lasts very well for a hour. I still feel my lips were bigger for up to three hours, but nothing more this is a temporary solution. Perfect for special occasions first date a meal out etc. However it would need repeating after 3 hours.

Is it easy to use ? 
Very easy and simple to use takes 2 or 3 minuets depending on how large you want to go then some lipstick and your good to go.

Does more pumping increase the size ?
Yes but be careful not to over pump or you could get a bruise no more than 3 minuets or I do 30 pumps and stop. 

Is there a better technique?
Yes make sure you skin is full on the suction cup and do slower pumps for more suction (no innuendos intended)

Would you buy and recommend this product ?
A big fat yes!

How often do you use it ?
Honestly I don't use it very much as my lips are fairly full but maybe one every other week for a date night. It always makes me feel good when I've done it.
