Back with the makeup looks for you all. You can ignore the caption, I didn’t use 3 makeup brushes, probably more like 6/7… I was just trying to be funny 🙄😂 did it work?
For this look I used;
- Nyx microbrow pencil in brunette
- Benefit kabrow in shade 3.5
- Rimmel wake me up foundation in shade soft beige
- Beauty kitchen primer
- Lashes are primalash in D11
- Bella Pierre highlighter
- Makeup revolution blush in shade bloom
- Gerard cosmetics liquid lipstick in shade 1995
- Benefit roller lash mascara
- Bella Pierre banana setting powder
- Makeup revolution reloaded eyeshadow palette
- Revolution pro entranced palette shade beguile
- Rimmel exaggerate liquid eyeliner
I really think these shades are so warming! Don’t you? I love the brown lips with the orange & gold tones. It keeps the look warm & compliments my skin tone.
I’m getting much better at ‘baking’ too. It really is a must for under your eyes! It makes them look so much more flawless. I use real techniques sponges for doing that. Do you bake your makeup?
One thing I need to learn is how to do winged liner. I am awful at it. I feel like it would make my makeup looks look so much better! Winged liner helps you shape your eyes & finish your eyeshadow. Plus it just looks super glam too 💁🏽
What’s your favourite part of putting makeup on?
I am lucky enough to be a #skinfluencer for dermalogica. This was kindly gifted to me but all thoughts are my own.
So if you know me (people at work can vouch for this) I have always had good skin, well looked after you know?! But recently I had been breaking out terribly. Someone even told me that’s not like me.. Which is true, it really isn’t like me.
Dermalogica added me to their skinfluencer programme recently so it’s been getting a lot better. And now thanks to this calendar I can keep myself topped up & keep my skin beautiful!
So the way it works is we start 12 days before Christmas. So we opened the first door on Thursday 13th. Obviously I am showing you this before the 12 days are up so you can’t see all of the products, sorry!
I am extremely overwhelmed with the generosity from dermalogica & how amazing the products are. My skin is feeling so much smoother & looking a lot more clearer.
Do you like dermalogica products?
If you’re a beauty & skincare lover like me then you will know how exciting this is! So recently I was contacted by dermalogica on Instagram. They were so kind & invited me to be a #skinfluencer for them. I mean, they were thanking me? No dermalogica, thank you!
I have received a few different brands in the post & they’ve all been amazing in their own way but this parcel was even delivered by DPD & I could change the delivery to suit me too?!
So on to the products. I was gifted 5 amazing products to try. I did use them as soon as they arrived too 💁🏽 even tested them on Sam as well. Don’t you also love how much they match our bathroom?! 🙄😜
I used the pre cleanse, special cleansing gel & the daily microfoliant to start with. I kid you not my skin felt amazing & super taught after using those. I then used them on Sam too, he didn’t enjoy it as much. He doesn’t see the point 🙈 men hey?
I would highly recommend these to anybody. Have you ever tried this brand?
Very pleased to share this with you all as I have used their products for such a long time now! I have become a cute nutrition ambassador! 💋 I literally love everything about this brand, but the logo is what makes me love them most! Who wouldn’t want to represent a brand that has a lipstick kiss as its logo?! 💁🏽 you all know how much I love lipstick 😂
I use quite a few of their products so let me talk you through them ☺️
I have a grey cropped top, a pink hoodie, a mug & a shaker. I will soon be getting a pretty new top which is very exciting!! But that’s all hush hush right now 🙊😉 I promise I will tell you more soon… I use the shaker almost everyday & of course the mug for my hot water with lemon ☕️
I use acai berry, CLA, collagen & a banana powder! The CLA, collagen & acai berry help with your skin, reduce bloating, give you more energy & boost your immune system. I can honestly say I wouldn’t be without these now. Plus the shakes are super tasty & I tend to have these with coconut milk 😋 the next flavour I am getting is definitely coconut! They do also have vegan protein too! I know this is very important to a lot of people 💁🏽
Have a look on cute nutrition site! I’m sure you will find something you love 👌🏽 plus you can get discount on your order by using my discount code CAITLINC10CC
Let me know if you use these products or order anything, I’d love to know!

I must start by saying how amazing is this packaging?! So girly.
I have always wanted an eye mask for when I go to bed. I love to sleep in the dark, but Sam never shuts his blind 🙈 so honestly, this was amazing for me! 😂
Onto the products… They all smell amazing, the consistency is spot on (thicker) & so far so good my skin has reacted well to them 🙌🏽 I received 5 mini products; A facial cleanser, hydrating a time-aging serum, hydrating repair cream, hydrating mask & daily hydrating moisturiser! I am so happy with these. I have used them once to try them out & now I am keeping them for my holiday as I only have hand luggage!
I was well & truly treated to some goodies here… Have you tried image skincare? If you haven’t I definitely recommend them to you.

Elemis is by far one of my favourite skincare brands so to receive this was an absolute treat! Thankyou elemis & glamour beauty club ✌🏽️
I have had a few facials in spa’s that use elemis. It honestly is a saviour to your skin! Thankyou for sending this to me to try complimentary, you’re skin savers. I had a little break out recently as the stress is taking over, so this couldn’t have come at a better time
It is literally perfect. It smells amazing, the consistency is perfect, as I like mine to be quite thick, the packaging is fresh. Plus… It actually works 🙌🏽 it’s packed with oils & vitamin rich superfoods so there are no nasties!!
I would 100% recommend this to anybody! Who else loves elemis as much as me?!

I need to start by saying I would have happily paid full price for this box! I paid £15 in their winter sale & it should have been £25…
The eylure lashes were bloody beautiful.. I did end up ruining them though which I was gutted about, but I think I have a new favourite no. now! I normally had 101 or 107! 😍 I’ve also replaced my old beauty blender sponge with this one. I love the shape of this one. I much prefer a flat edge!
Two sleek products, they’re spoiling us with this box. The eyeshadow palette has such beautiful shades, it is very small though so you won’t get much use out of it! The red matte lipstick is a lovely colour. I have only swatched it so far, but it might be my valentines lipstick this year 💁🏽💋
The little glitter pots may get used maybe for an extravagant makeup look, or a festival… The face wipes are fab, do the trick perfectly 👌🏼 & work well with sensitive skin.
So so many products in this box, I think it was an absolute bargain! I mean £15 & it includes st tropez… You can’t beat that can you?!
Is anybody subscribed to latest in beauty or had any of their boxes before?

I was recently gifted this beauty of a product from dr botanicals. I have tried it before as I’d received it in my look fantastic advent calendar over Christmas. So I knew I loved it already! 😍
This honestly is a brilliant product. It smells absolutely beautiful! The scent isn’t too strong as sometimes rose scented things can be overpowering! Every time I use this I use it like a toner… So I cleanse my skin first & I still use a night cream afterwards. I do have to get Sam to smell how good my face smells after using it too though… 🙄😂 poor boy!
How beautiful is the packaging? I love things that look ‘natural’ 🍃 this product is well worth the hype. Trust me! I have super sensitive skin as well & this never causes me any problems. It’s packed with so many goodies vitamin c & vitamin a – to help stimulate collagen & to even skin tone. Plus almond oil to help nourish & brighten! You couldn’t say no to all of that!
Have you tried it before?!

Lookfantastic is one of my fav places to buy beauty products from. I receive their beauty box monthly so it has introduced me to some brilliant brands!! Thanks to this I have found these fab products…
Regenerate toothpaste; I bloody love this product!! 😃 It’s supposed to help repair the enamel on your teeth, which will in turn help to whiten & brigten teeth! I have had a few tubes of this now & I am completely hooked. I urge anybody to give it a try! It has a minty flavour, but it’s not overly strong. I recently purchased it for £8.
Garnier makeup remover; I bought a few bottles of this as it was on offer & I am pleased that I did. *You have to give it a good shake before you use it to mix the product together* it’s so gentle on your skin & I need that as mine is quite sensitive! I love it because it actually does remove your eye makeup really well 🙌🏽 it is a bit more oily than just water, so be careful on different skin types.
Grow gorgeous scalp detox; now apologies if anyone I know is reading this as I have been banging on about it for weeks now! It honestly works… I have had some major hair growth whilst using this & I love their packaging. 💆🏽 It’s to help your hair grow, but also to get rid of the build up of product that gets left in your scalp 👌🏽
Have you ever bought anything from lookfantastic? If you haven’t it’s worth having a look as they usually have quite a lot of good deals, plus lots of discount codes thought the month 💳 always nice to save some pennies

How to look after your skin, hair & nails during winter… Well how I do anyway 💁🏽 There are a few things that I do that help keep mine looking & feeling pretty good! So here are the main ones…
I honestly believe if you aren’t taking any vitamins then you should be. Yes we get vitamins from foods etc & sunlight, but it’s winter now & we need to up the vitamins in the cold weather. I take a standard multivitamin, you could take hair, skin & nail ones too. But I also take collagen tablets or drink a collagen drink. Since using these I haven’t had ANY dry skin. We all get spot breakouts, especially around the time of our periods, so girls I’m not saying you won’t ever get spots. But your skin will feel amazingly hydrated & look brighter!
This is super duper important! It’s important all year round so really you should be doing this daily anywho… But this is how I look after my skin from the outside.
Firstly you need to double cleanse, so not once, but twice so you definitely get rid of all makeup or any other products that you have use. I switch mine up so I don’t cleanse with the same product either. Then you need to use a toner. Lastly depending on whether this is your morning or evening routine you need a lovely moisturiser for the day time & night cream in the evening. I swear by night creams, absolutely love them.
For your body, don’t forget, you also need to be giving it some attention, so we know that our hands & feet could do with some tlc too throughout the colder months! Slap on a body lotion, or hand cream & let it do the work.
I love to have my hair looking super healthy all year round. In the winter it can get a little dry due to the weather. I find using an oil on the ends of my hair all year keeps it silky & managable. I swear by using hair products before your hair dries rather than after. Sometimes if you use it after it goes a bit thick & makes it look greasy.. Nobody wants that
I hope these tips helped ☺️ have a fab Christmas everyone!
