My Favorite Red Lipsticks



Red lipstick can be quite tricky shade to wear - one moment it’s on your lips, the next it’s smeared all over your face, nose and teeth and not to forget your precious dress. But still its one of my favorite shades to wear and nothing brightens the face instantly as red lip color.In this video I will show you my favorite reds that will suit most complexions. 



 My favorite Red lipstick of the time is the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick Le Rouge. This is a classic true bright red. The lipstick so comfortable to wear and never feels dry on my lips. The pigmentation is superb and stays put on my lips all day without eating and drinking that is. It particularly looks great on darker and more sallow complexions, but without the double it will really suits everyone.

 Another lipstick that I never want be without is the MAC Lady Danger. This is a matte lipstick , yet smooth as butter and quite moisturizing, very pigmented, applies evenly and also incredibly long wearing. This is the perfect shade of bright orange red und if I feel and look tired then this is the shade that I fall back on. Again, it really would suit everyone but I find it looks especially great on redheads.

 If you are on a budget then I suggest you try the Rimmel 660 in love with ginger. This is a beautiful coral red and feels moisturizing enough on my lips. The only disadvantage is that it doesn't stay particularly long on the lips and it also doesn't wear off evenly - so you will have to check it frequently in the mirror in order not to end up looking like a clown. But still, all in all great budget buy.

3 Best Homemade Face Exfoliators - DIY Face Scrubs




You know those expensive exfoliators you see in department stores and spas, they can cost a fortune. But did you know that you could easily make your own exfoliators with ingredients that you already might have at home.

In this video I will show you how.  Click on the link below:





 Coffee and Olive Oil Exfoliator
 Simple mix 1 tablespoon of coffee grounds with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and then massage the mixture gently onto your face - this will stimulate blood flow resulting in smoother, firmer skin. Caffeine will tighten and provides antioxidants to the skin while olive oil will moisturize your skin deeply. Then simply remove the coffee exfoliator with water.

 Sugar and Olive Oil Exfoliator
If you don’t have coffee grounds at hand, you could mix sugar with olive oil instead. Mix 1 tablespoon of sugar with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and again apply it to your face and massage your face in gentle circular movements. Remove the Sugar exfoliator with water.

Clay  and Olive Oil Exfoliator
Mix 2 tablespoons of fine clay - you can buy the clay in natural health shops - and mix it with 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. Add enough water to create a smooth consistency. Then apply the mask to the face and Leave on for about 15-20 minutes. Then rinse off the mask with cold water and apply your moisturizer of your choice. A clay mask helps clarify your skin, removes excess oil, shrinks pores, removes impurities and deep cleans your skin.

 All three face exfoliators are incredibly moisturizing and exfoliating to the skin and will leave your face soft as baby bottom and all of this while saving you some bucks. And the best thing you can also use these on your body for extra pampering.

 Hope you liked the video!

How To Get Rid of Crows -Feet






The wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes normally appear after 30 and the main reason for this is the reduced production of collagen and elastin, two proteins responsible for your skin’s elasticity. Crow’s feet can also appear as a result of other contributing factors including excessive sun exposure, smoking and poor diet.

If you have sensitive skin it might be worth doing a patch test first before you try any of the remedies and discontinue use if you experience any irritation.


 In this video I will show you 4 simple home remedies to get rid of crows feet - keep watching!

Charlotte Tilbury Product Reviews & Dupes



As you might know or not know, I am a self-proclaimed Charlotte Tilbury Product ( surely, a fault confessed is half redressed, right?)  So basically half of my makeup is Charlotte Tilbury.  Although some of her products have holy grail status and in my opinion have been sent by the Gods - some of the products are purely rip off and I don't see how their price can be justified.

In this video I will be reviewing Charlotte Tilbury Products  and the best  Dupes available  on the market if you don't have the spare cash to splurge on makeup.

The following Charlotte Tilbury Products were  reviewed in the video:

 Lip Magic
 Magic Cream
 Wonderglow
 Light Wonder Foundation
 The Retoucher
 Filmstar Bronze & Glow
 Check to Chic - Love Glow
 The Dolce Vita - Luxury Eyeshadow Palette
 Rock & Kohl Eye Pencil
 Lip Lustre Lip Gloss - Sweet Stiletto 
Legedary Lashes
 Mascara Brow Lift




Hope you like the video!
