In this HOW TO I'll be showing you guys what products are needed to make you a GLOW girl and give you that perfect Summer Goddess bronzed look. I'll also be telling you the application guidelines and swatches! WOC FRIENDLY!


Products used: Maybelline New York - Dream Bronze BB - Medium/Deep
Creightons - Bronze Ambition Glow'N'Go - Instant Tan Matte
Sleek - Face Contour Kit - Dark 886
MUA - Merged Trio Eyeshadow - Emotions

1. Start with your skin care regime! Good skin = Flawless/Smooth makeup. Want to achieve better skin in 7 days? Read my Magnitone blog post here. & if you want to combat your oily skin, read my blog post on tips and reviews of different products here!

Self-tanning gives lighter complexions a dark, bronzed finish...and it does exactly the same thing on darker complexions! Apply this to your cleansed skin rubbing it in to ensure a smooth and even coverage. I use this for my face as my neck is already slightly darker than my face, I do not need to apply this to my neck. WAIT until the lotion is fully absorbed before you begin makeup application. Avoid contact with your eyes, do not use on broken or irritated skin & keep out of direct sunlight when drying. Purchase here ~ £5.00 

3. Wait, wait, wait for that tan to absorbbbb and release your inner goddess glow!

This product really does excite me. When I saw it in Superdrug I couldn't walk past it I had to purchase it! This has SPF 25 and it claims it's a '8-in-1 Beauty Balm Sunkissed glow Perfector'. Apply a thin layer to skin, you can apply this with Real Techniques stippling brush, personally I use any flat foundation brush (Eco Tools/Mary Kay or Real Techniques) to evenly distribute the product. It says you can use it with or without a moisturiser but I do use a moisturiser (as part of my skin care regime). Purchase Here ~ £6.99 

This highlighter gives me LIFEEE. Personally this is the ONE for me. I use the golden shimmer just above my cheek bones as a highlighter. I apply this either with my Barry M's blush brush or Hema dan brush. You can put as little or as much as you want, the pigmentation is absolutely lush! Depending on how much GLO you want depends on how much layers you put on! Purchase Here ~ £6.49

This part it optional girls. This is actually an eyeshadow trio palette. However, the Gold bronze colour is life guys! Just adding a little bit of it over the Sleek Highlighter just tops it off. I just use a clean finger to gently pat it around the area's I want extra glow. Purchase Here ~ £2.50

I wore this bronzed up look for my birthday. My eye makeup was done by an upcoming MUA: Stacey! Watch out for future blog posts with her details! My eye makeup was: a gold/bronzed eye makeup and Red Cherry lashes in #WSP.

Eyeshadow Review

I'm not really an eyeshadow gal so I rarely have any eyeshadow's. I have three palette's including the Barry M one and as for individual eyeshadow's I can count it on one hand!

This palette though...girlllllll! The colours are so pretty, honestly. I'm scared of bright colours when it come's to shadow' this is perfecto. The matte colours are LIFE and the shimmery colours are also LIFE! The primer also helps pick up more of the colour on your skin. I just luh it guys! 

It comes with two double ended aplicators but you know how we do now, it's 2015 and I've discovered my absolute loves (REAL TECHNIQUE BRUSHES) the enhance your eyes set is I really need to say LIFE again? I apply these shadow's with my Real Technique Eye brushes! 

My favourite colours are: starting from your left, the 3rd, 4th and 5th one in...oh my goodness. Forgive me for this but palette didn't give the pretty shadow's names so I'm going to attempt to describe them. The 3rd one is like a matte pinkish nude (forgive me!) The 2nd one is a shimmery metallic, GLOWY, colour absolute MUST for the summer. Last but not least the 5th one...I can't even explain it..a metallic goldish, pinkish...just look at the swatches below guys! Not to neglect the other shades though but those 3 are just my favourite. There are 3 matte's and 3 shimmery shades, and one nude primer which blends in to your skin complexion when applied using a blending brush. 

Without using the primer, the colours do need more than one coat as they're not as pigmented as other brands, for example Sleek but nevertheless I like it! I love natural looking, glowing eye-makeup so this is the palette is definitely for me!
If you want a natural glow eye-makeup look then run to your purse and grab your debit/credit cards and purchase here - £6.49

The swatches are in the opposite order to the photograph I took of the palette. So the 1st colour in the palette (photograph near the beginning) is the colour at the end, on your right hand side in the photograph of the swatches...hopefully that made sense!
Can you just SEE how reflective the 4th and 5th colour is?! AND look at how beautiful the 5th colour looks. IN LOVE GUYS!

Stay Shadow'd! Stay Pretty!

(Pictures With Results At The End)

Replenishing Sheen Spray, Strength And Shine Leave-In Conditioner, Oil Moisturizer, Intensive Conditioning Treatment, Moisture & Shine Shampoo and Perfect Edges.

Surprisingly, this review isn't going to be too long as I have evidence (pictures) of how amazing these products work and I really want to share it with you guys. I'm going to run through the PRO'S and CON'S and then show you my results using this hair care product range. IF you want to know how a particular product works in depth please feel free to leave a comment and I will reply with all the details! If I was to go through each and every products PRO'S and CON'S you could imagine we'd be here for a very long time! (These are not all of the products in the range!)

~ Replenishes hair!
~ Strength and Shine Leave-In Conditioner strengthens the hair and provides a healthy shine! Very good for everyday use.
~ Oil Moisturizer works well on very dry ends!
~ Perfect Edges does not gradually get flaky or leave a white residue like other edge controls! Edges stay on FLEEK throughout the day!
~ Moisture & Shine Shampoo intensively cleans your hair and helps with dandruff! 
~ Moroccan Argan Oil is absolutely amazing for your hair! 
~ Moroccan Argan Oil promotes hair growth, tames frizz and protects hair against the heat of dryers, curlers and straighteners. 

~ The Intensive Conditioning Treatment requires you to sit under a dryer for 15 minutes, not everyone has that appliance in their household (well, I certainly don't!) It does say if you do not have a dryer then place a plastic cap over your hair for 30-45 minutes - eek, time consuming! 
~ There's not a scalp treatment in the range so I do have to use an alternative hair cream for my scalp.
~ Creme Of Nature Moroccan Argan Oil is not sold in stores like Superdrug, Boots, Sainsbury's etc.

(My hair type: Drier ends, Delicate & Coarse roots, Dandruff-prone) 

Before I started using the Creme Of Nature Moroccan Argan Oil products. My hair looks very, very thirsty :(
I dyed my hair 5 times (not smart) and straightened my hair everyday (really not smart!)
I can't remember the exact date this photograph was taken but it was around the ending of 2013 - beginning of 2014. 

Achieved moisture by Summer 2014! Apologies I didn't add hair growth photographs but I rarely leave my hair down, it's always styled but there was definitely hair growth :)
An update (APRIL 2015):

GO AND BUY THESE PRODUCTS GUYS! Seriously, not only did it add moisture to my hair but it replenished, strengthened and promoted hair growth. For more info about the products Click Here
The only online websites that I know are trustworthy for selling these products are Amazon or Ebay as unfortunately, it is hard to locate in stores. Feel free to contact me to find out information on what London-based stores sell the products.

Stay replenished! Stay Pretty!

If you do not know about coconut oil then you are definitely missing out. Heaven in a jar. 
I'm so in love with coconut oil I just HAD to do a review on it!

What? Coconut Oil? To do exactly what? 
Clear away spots and blemishes, make skin softer, remove makeup and revive dry skin!  
Don't get me wrong there's so much more coconut oil can do for your skin (hair, health and it's also edible!) but these are the four reasons I use it. I'm just going to run through pro's and con's before telling you how to use coconut oil to solve these problems.

~ Clears away spots and blemishes (does wonders for acne-prone, sensitive skin!)
~ Makes skin feel softer after just one use! You can see results from your first use.
~ Dry skin that tends to flake can be revived by coconut oil!
~ Coconut oil can be used for cooking and hair, a good replacement for sunflower oil when cooking.
There's so much more pro's about coconut oil! I will link a website that runs through more of the goodness this oil brings! Click Here For More Information 

~ If you use TOO much coconut oil it can result in your skin being an 'oily mess'. Be sure to use a small amount.
~ Coconut oil for clearing spots is a lengthy process. Results won't happen until a few weeks (3-4). You may get more spots during the process of using coconut oil as it's clearing the bacteria out of the skin before getting rid of the spots. (something I experienced!) 
~ If you use too much of the product it may stain clothes, pillowcases or anything it comes in contact with :( 

Coconut oil usually comes as a solid but can be used either in a solid form or a liquid form. You should purchase an organic, extra virgin coconut oil that's 100% raw & cold pressed. (I'll link below where you can purchase this!) 

~ To clear spots: I use this after I've done my night time skin regime, it's more effective if used on clean skin. I use an ample amount of coconut oil and massage it into my skin, all over my face at night. I do sleep with the product on as it can be used as a moisturiser! Be sure to change your pillow case very frequently as this can be a contribution to spots! (If you will use coconut oil everyday, use the smallest amount and do not saturate your face in the oil!) 

~ To make skin softer: Heating up the solid coconut oil then waiting for it to cool down before massaging it into your skin makes your skin softer.

~ To remove makeup: Massaging solid or liquid form coconut oil over makeup and then using a cotton pad or cotton wool to gently wipe off the makeup. This is a very effective way to remove makeup as it has no harsh chemicals (great for sensitive skin) 

~ To revive dry skin: The same method for clearing spots and making skin softer can be used to do this! It also works on dry feet it doesn't make the cracks disappear completely but it makes your feet very soft. 

You only need a SMALL amount to create a protective shield, coconut oil does not need to be re-applied as frequently as other skin oils. 

This is the coconut oil I personally use.
Where can you purchase this?

Lucy Bee Fair Trade Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil 300ml ~ Purchase Here ~ £6.00 
Vita Coco Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil 250ml Purchase Here ~ £5.99

Summer is coming up and clear skin is a must! I hope this review and tips helped!
Stay healthy! Stay pretty!
