March certainly felt like pre-wedding season! I did four wedding shows this month as the Recommended Makeup Artist at a number of stunning local venues.  It has also been a busy month of bridal Makeup and Hair trials ahead of spring/summer weddings.

Friday Fave! MAC Blot Powder

This has been in a staple in both my professional makeup kit and my personal makeup bag for my entire career spanning over fifteen years! I cannot say many products last as a favourite for that long.

The powder comes in five shades for all skin tones with a powder puff in the compact.
Light, medium, medium dark, dark and deep dark
I use medium dark and this is the most used shade in my professional kit as well.

I like to apply it with a brush on clients for a natural finish or with a puff if shine on the skin is strong.
I use the puff in the compact on myself and control shine and keep my makeup set all day using this powder, it never leaves my handbag!

This powder is great for oily/combination skin, professional makeup work and special situations in life when you really need your makeup to last without looking shiny.  It also achieves a sheer and natural finish which I absolutely love.

It is an oil control powder that has super minimal colour so it will not change the colour of your base foundation the more you apply throughout the day.  It simply sets makeup in place very well and blots shine.

I 100% recommend this product and have yet to find anything thats beats it.

Friday Fave! La Mer The Eye Balm Intense

Continuing from Last week's luxurious skincare "Friday Fave" post I am happy to share with you my all time favourite eye moisturiser... drumroll please....The Eye balm Intense by Crème de la Mer!

This eye balm is a true miracle in a pot as far as I am concerned along with many others I might add just read the reviews!

I began using this cream in my early twenties when I randomly developed Eczema on my eyelids and after talking with the Creme de la Mer consultants and reading up on the brand and reviews I decided to give it a try. My eczema immediately improved and believe me I had tried a lot of different lotions and potions including prescribed medication. Very quickly my eczema became well controlled using this eye balm to the point when it eventually went away.  I occasionally can feel a flare up starting due to seasonal changes so I simply apply a little more than usual twice daily and it stops it in its tracks every time!
I therefore swear by this miracle eye balm, I am very happy with it and would never change.  I believe the appearance of the skin around my eyes is all thanks to this little pot of pure magic!

The balm smoothes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and diminishes puffiness.  Deeply emollient, it conditions, hydrates and softens.

Key Ingredient: Miracle Broth TM & Marine De-Puff Ferment TM.

£160.00 15ml (it lasts ages though as you do not need to apply a lot).

Friday Fave! Omorovicza Gold Flash Firming Serum

If you are looking to indulge in luxurious skincare then this is surely it!

I have been using the Omorovicza Gold Flash Firming Serum for a couple of months now and I really love the feel of the product and the fact my skin instantly looks and feels healthy and radiant.  I must say I do think the clarity of my skin has improved overall as well.

It is not cheap at £140.00 available at Space NK This is certainly a luxury purchase but I have always chosen to spend more on skincare and I believe this is worth the price tag.

This serum will reduce the signs of ageing by hydrating, smoothing and firming the skin.  It also heals and repairs micro damaged and uneven skin. The complexion instantly appears brighter and healthier.

The serum contains Collodial gold which has inflammatory properties.

An oil free formula suitable for all skin types including sensitive.

*If you are not familiar with face serums this should be used in conjunction with your moisturiser. Apply this first as it will penetrate the skin deeper to deliver the active ingredients then apply your moisturiser on top.
