Why You Need To Use A Toner!

I always thought that toner was a pointless step in skincare. I didn't really see what it could do for my skin that was amazingly different than the other steps.

However, since iv'e been using the Loréal Skin Perfection Velvety-Soft Toner iv'e noticed a big difference in the appearance and texture in my sin. Not only does it feel softer and look visibly clearer it has stopped my skin from freaking out so much with the seasonal change such as colder weather.
All in all I think that toner is something that can't be skipped for me and isn't so much of a pointless step after all.

Do you use a toner in your skincare routine?

My Morning Moisturiser

This La Roche-Posay Rosaliac moisturiser has been my go to moisturiser for about 2 months now, and its safe to say I can't do my makeup without putting this on first! I know big statement right? I first heard about this when Amelia Liana was raving about it on her youtube channel, and I had to go buy it. The words hydrating and anti-redness really caught my eye and made me want it.

It has a green tint to it making it counteract the redness in your skin but don't worry this won't turn your skin green, it is very subtle but has a big effect. The other bonus to it is that it super hydrating, I love using this because I know that my foundation will go on smoothly on top of it and not stick to any dry patches that I may have. This isn't a thick moisturiser that takes forever to sink in, at first its thick and tacky but just leave it about 30 seconds to sink in and then your good to go!

Whats you're morning moisturiser?

No Concealer Creasing Here..

No doubt my concealer has trouble staying where I put it in the morning, and I'm not a big fan of touching up during the day especially concealer. So I was on the hunt to find the perfect powder that sets and also make my concealer last throughout the long day without creasing.

I found it really hard to not spend a ridiculous amount of money just on an under eye powder and I didn't want to settle for just an ordinary powder as it doesn't work as well for under the eyes. With that in mind I was looking for a yellow toned powder as I heard that the colour really makes that area brighter and make you look more awake. I was inspired by products like the Ben Nye banana powder and the banana powder from Anastasia Beverly Hills.

I finally found one that is truly perfection! The Soap & Glory Instant Retouch Pressed Powder has amazing qualities for only £12. It sets your concealer all day and is very lightweight so it doesn't cake up. With it being yellow it contributes to making you look brighter and healthier but this has to built up as a thin layer is nearly translusent but don't worry it still feels like you have nothing on. It also has a silky/satin finish to feel velvety soft, this makes other products blend seamlessly into it and looks flawlessly smooth.

I think it might not be too long before I have to buy another!
