Beauty at Bedtime 😴

I always mix & match my products which is good as I think your skin gets used to the same products. However I thought I would share my current beauty routine I use before I go to bed. It takes a little while, according to my boyfriend hours 🙄 but in reality it’s about ten minutes, not that he’s one to exaggerate!

I start by washing my face with Kiehl’s Calendula Deep Cleansing face wash. My skin is very oily and as I’m obsessed with makeup there’s usually a ton of crap to wash off my skin, and this stuff does the trick. It’s soap free and fluffs up into a luxurious foam that cleans all the dirt off without making my skin feel tight and moisture free. My skin is problematic and very oily so I follow the cleanse by dabbing a little of Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA liquid onto a cotton pad and run it over my skin. I really believe this product has saved my spot prone skin but you have to build up usage as it’s quite strong! I leave this to sink in for a few minutes and let it work it’s magic.

My next step is my newest beauty find – Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery concentrate. All I’d heard was great things about this product so I bought my Mum some, she seemed to like it so I thought I’d give it a try. I rub a small amount of this oil into my palms and then dab it into my face and neck. It works by enhancing your skins night time recovery process so you wake with rejuvenated skin. I’ve been using it a week and so far I’m impressed!

Once the midnight recovery has settled my next product is again Kiehl’s – are you sensing a pattern here! I do love their products mainly because they work so if you haven’t tried them, get involved. I use their Ultra Facial Oil Free Lotion, which has a touch of a menthol feel and definitely works wonders for my greasy face! For my eyes I use Paula’s Choice Resist Anti-aging Eye Cream. This is such a rich eye cream you need the tiniest amount, it really does go a long way. This has 💯 reduced the lines I had around my eyes and it feels lovely on tired eyes. I always finish with my FEG eyelash serum but that’s a whole other blog that you can find here: Lashes on Fleek – Fab Fashion Beauty

Happy bedtime routines FFs! Would be great to hear what yours are too?! 👄


Rouge Velvet for Matte Lips 👄

I was recently lucky enough to receive a complimentary box full of the new Rouge Velvet lipsticks. There are 12 rich colours of these new matte Bourjois lippys with my favourite a rosey pink called Flamingo Rose.

I’m not normally a fan of matte lipsticks for the simple reason I find they dry my lips out. However I am the girl that has 50 lip balms and has to apply one every 5 minutes! So I’m not used to the feeling of the matte lippys, I’m definitely more of a gloss girl!

Bourjois Rouge Velvet lipstick may have just changed my opinion. This lippy is beautifully matte without drying out my lips. Before applying I first used the Bourjois Miraculous Contour primer pencil, I then applied the colour with a lip brush. I found putting it on this way helped it last and kept my lips nice and moist.

Unlike sticky glosses this lippy won’t stick to your hair at the slightest hint of a breeze which is normally a daily struggle for me, and the struggle is real! It last beautifully and doesn’t leave those nasty marks on your wine glass. Like most matte lipsticks you can’t reapply too much or you’ll get the cakey look but it lasts that well you just won’t need to.

So if you’re looking for a matte lipstick that won’t break the bank, dry your lips and will last then look no further than the new Rouge Velvet lipstick from Bourjois 👄
