Fake it ’til you make it

Rating ; Orange-you-glad we met; orange mitts, patchy bits, get glow-ver it. This is my tan-tastic top self-tanning product for a gentle tan without the tango look!

Inside scoop; no potato alert!  Ever noticed how most self-tan products leave a slightly odd sweet/potato-smell behind on the skin.  Over the years I think I’ve oddly grown to like it.  Well no more, now you can tan-over a new leaf with this no-orange, gently-developing self-tanner.

Vita liberata self tanhands This super-light cream-gel, absorbs in an instant & has it all for me.  Develops gently during the day, absorbs in an instant and you can get dressed in quick-time. My top tip for all-over even application is to rub a bit of baby oil / dry oil after you’ve applied it on elbows, knees and inside of your arms to help avoid any tell-tale streak lines.

Fe-Line-Fabulous

Rating ; PURR-FECT cat eyes in a stroke; I know a product is good when somehow I’ve got 4 of them on the go at home, or maybe more like 7.  AND it costs way less than £10.

Inside scoop; There are ALOT of liquid eyeliner/penliners out there.  Some good, some not so good, some doomed to give you Gene Simmons from KISS eyes [not always a great look!].  This precision tip, no run, last-for-ages low-cost brush pen will give you cat-like eyes in an instant for a purr-fect finish every time.

Flirty-flicky-fabulous eyes come no easier than this brush like pen.  Key is a light touch and a feather like tip.  This one by the clever folks @ soapnglory is my Number 1 for eyes in an instant.  Lifts / opens / widens and adds a touch on black flirt in a brush.  It seems to last for ages, dries quick-fast & never runs.

Comes in black, black oh yes and black. 2 pen sizes, but I recommend standard.  You can layer it up or dress it down, for me it’s an everyday staple, above my Monday morning look today, but for others maybe worth saving for the weekend and you can practise.

FLASH Flash 100% yard dash; Saturday night fixer

Rating ; DANCE FLOOR READY IN A FLASH; spree ££’s spoiler alert, not a cheapy, but a once-foundy-can’t-live-withouty! Plus last-y-all-nighty, what’s not to love.

Inside scoop; Ok sure the name is possibly a bit of an over promise, but anything with a name like that is worth a shot I reckon. In fact that’s exactly what it is; a quick-fix-in-a-flash-shot of firmness. You’ll be party-ready in a flash, but for a bit of cash.

Most of us have tried the mother of all beauty flash balms by Clarins, still a hot fav in my cabinet, so let’s call this one by Ren it’s slightly younger, slightly cooler sister.  Gel formula, one small drop off the syringe (yup bit odd that) & trust me your make-up sets faster than the office gluttons descending on the free birthday cake. Me above (+ yesterday’s strobing powder) ready for a night out.

It’s feather like formula somehow – don’t please ask me how – sets your make up & foundation with a non-drying, but not greasy feel which somehow also gives a lift…can’t explain better than that, but I feel refreshed & a teeny-bit-younger.  p.s title of this blog will mean something if you’ve seen Zootropolis ; else yup bit weird!

Glam-glowgetter strobe-on: how illuminating!

Rating ; SELFIE-TASTIC ; get glowing in one brush, stroke pricey-but worth it

Inside scoop; again another TK Maxx beauty-steal (I love a good forage there) for me here but I’d also buy this one full price.  Many of these available everywhere from loose powders to set. But – strobing – who knew?? 10 years off at a stroke, last night’s night out erased, selfie-ready in an instant.

Ok strobing, you younger beauty bloggers are all over this I’m sure along with the selfie-generation and credit to you why did you keep it so quiet.  It beats a camera filter anyday. So appreciate I’m late to the party here but I’m all over it now & mildly addicted.

4 teeny tits pots for £50 I hear you say ; fair point ; BUT I reckon they’ll last a year plus, pocket-size glow (ignore the brush looks like a garden rake!) mix with your own blusher & you’ve day-to-night glow on the go.
