Easy Tanning- St. Tropez In Shower Tanning Lotion

I am someone who hates putting tan! I just want to be tanned with zero effort and zero streaks! This tan – the St. Tropez In the shower Tan is perfect for no fuss easy tanning.

I would definitely recommend the medium colour. I feel like the light version is very light and doesn’t build enough for me to feel tanned!

So to use this tan, I firstly do my normal shower routine. Then I clip my hair up and get ready to start tanning. I put this tan all over me when you’re wet, don’t dry yourself beforehand and then I set a timer  for 3ish minutes! It doesn’t need to be rubbed in properly  just on your skin. Then all I do is rinse off in the shower and then dry off!

And that is it! I know some people will think this is more work which it is in the shower but there is no tan smell, you can put your clothes on straight away and the more you use it the darker you’re tan gets and it moisturisers your skin. So your killing two birds with one stone really!

The first coat definitely isn’t very dark but this tan is very buildable and gives you a really nice colour. Its what I wore to a wedding recently and it was perfect. I put on two coats!

What I love the most about this tan is that there’s never any streaks and its very natural!

Have you ever used this tan? Let me know!

A warm toned Smokey Eye


  

I just can’t stay away from neutral eyes. This time I used the Too Face Semi Sweet Chocolate Palette which finally landed in Ireland and I don’t think I have ever been more excited about getting this palette.

On my eyes I used Peanut Butter and Truffle in the outer third of my eye. I actually lined my eyes with Catrice Black Kohl pencil which is something I never normally do and Im not sure if I will do it again. I just can’t deal with the smudging! and for mascara no surprise that it is Benefits roller lash.

What to see more neutral smokey eyes, take a look at theses; one, two and and a surprise post from here.

Charlotte Tilbury is someone I could have only dreamed of meeting but this year thanks to blogging. She is the nicest sweetest person and has come incredible advice.

Her Dolce Vita palette is something I have been lusting over since it came out. So when it hit Brown Thomas, It was the one thing I was going to pick up.

Like I thought this palette is amazing! I am obsessed with the pressed gold pigment! and the deep brown/red is another winner in my eyes!

These eyeshadows are so pigment and buttery, and they blend seamlessly.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle

I was never really one for highlighters, I just never felt like I could see them on my skin. So i thought they were a waste of money.
I have tried Benefits Sun Beam and although it did give a slight sheen, I hated the consistency when I was applying it. I felt that it removed half of my foundation that I then had to fix.
So one day when I was in MAC, I tired the MSF in Soft and Gentle. The girls are always so lovely in MAC and will always help you out and teach you how to use it. This is one thing I love about MAC.

At first when she brought out this highlighter, I thought it was going to enhance my redness but to my surprise it left a lovely golden highlight as you can see in the swatch. As this highlight’s shimmer is smooth, you aren’t left with chunky bits of glitter on your face.

I would recommend this highlight to anyone who is a highlighting noob like I am. It really is gorgeous and I don’t leave the house without it.

Manicure Monday | Chanel May

I thought for today’s mani monday I would use a beautiful spring colour to help us through this depressing weather. If you are living in the UK and Ireland you know what I mean. I hope you’re all safe!

I know that the formula of Chanel nail polishes is crap but you can’t beat the feeling of wearing a chanel nail polish. I love this “true pink” colour called May.  Chanel Nail polishes retail for £18.

What’s your favourite Chanel nail polish colour?
