Tom Ford Lip Colour

Hi honeys! It's always so exciting to go shopping in other towns or cities, as there are always different makeup brands available! I was so happy to see Norwich has a small counter selling Tom Ford fragrance, lipstick and nail varnishes in Jarrolds. I had been dying to try a Tom Ford lipstick for ages just because they look so beautiful! 

The shade I went for is called 'Bruised Plum' with a matte texture. I love plums at the moment as I feel they bring at the green in my hazel eyes. The packaging is so impressive & looks so great to just whip out to reapply. The application is very easy with a smooth silky feel. I never post a product that I don't love. This will always be my special lipstick. 

This lipstick makes my lips look full which is fabulous as I feel some darker colours make my lips look thinner. I feel so pouty! The colour is long lasting & keeps impact all day long! Love love love it! 

Until next time lots of love Demi! Don't forget to check me out on Instagram 'demiilauren' for more makeup updates & pics xxx

Bobbi Brown Lip Color

Hi honeys! In the past week I've had a crazy makeup splurge and I finally got a
Bobbi Brown Lipstick.

 I've always heard great things and thought this was a great excuse to buy a new lipstick. I've fallen in love with nude colours recently and wanted to go for a slightly deeper, darker nude. The shade I went for is simply called 'brown' with a matte finish for the price of £19.50. 

The packaging is simple, sleek & shiny. The lipstick glides on beautifully, I always always use a lip brush. Plus a matching nude lip liner. 

To go with this look I used Dior Airflash foundation over the top of Yves Saint Laurent Touché Éclat foundation, for a glowy look. On my cheeks I have used a pink blush & shimmer by Dior from my Dior Chtistmas palette. On my eyes I used Clinique Lash Power Feathering mascara. Gold eyeshadow on lids by Yves Saint Laurent & liquid eyeliner IT liner by Dior. Kohl liner by Barry M for my waterline. 

Some of my other favourite nude lipsticks. 
Dior Rouge Nude 'Swan'
Dior Rouge Nude 'Charnelle'
Rouge COCO Chanel 'Sentiment'
Boots Seventeen Stay Pout Lipstick 'Just a fling' *Budget buy*
Dior Rouge Nude 'Swan' & 'Charnelle' these both have pinky tones and Swan could suit any skintone. I have previously blogged this beautiful colour. 
Or for a more deeper look Chanel have a fabulous one that I used to death called Rouge COCO in shade Sentiment. For a budget buy Boots own brand Seventeen Just a pout lipstick in shade 'Just a fling' is an amazing budget buy. Perfect if you're after a Kylie Jenner pout. 

I would to hear about some of your favourite nude colours and which brands you use. I'm always looking out to try different brands! 

Until next time. Lots of love Demi xxx

February's Makeup buys

Hey dolls! I feel I'm finally getting back into the swing of blogging again, it's taken it's time but now I feel like I'm in a good routine & motivated! I feel like I've taken a new direction down the beauty route as fingers crossed this is where my career will be heading too! Now let's get on with today's post. I thought it would be fun to share my Makeup purchases from this month. 

From left to right: Dior Airflash Foundation in shade 100, Ardell Demi Wispies lashes, Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes mascara, HD Brows Brow Beater, Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker lipgloss, Chanel Rouge Allure Lipstick shade Romanesque (A more detailed post on Chanel was featured earlier this month)

I have created a slight obsession with wanting a new foundation all the time. There are so many different foundations out there to suit different skin types & occasions. For everyday use I like something light yet I want a flawless coverage & Dior Airflash is amazing! 

I will do a more thorough post about this foundation in the future to explain the different ways this foundation can be applied. Just for now take my word that this is a fantastic foundation! 

With my new products I have created a simple makeup look that I wear day to day. 

Recently I have been suffering with breakouts & redness on my face, which does happen about once a month. Here as I hope you can see the Dior Airflash has evened out my skin tone & covered up any redness. 

The Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes has added length to my eyelashes without any clumping. To me this is a great natural looking mascara. My eyebrows have also been trained in place by the Brow Beater by HD Brows which was also featured in my last post.

Lastly my Ardell lashes that I wore on a night out & for Valentines day have a gorgeous look, that feel feathery light. 

Thank you for reading dolls! Lots of love Demi xxx
