FOTD

Today I used my conical wand and opted for a simple look, so I could let the hair do the work :)


Hmmm it felt weird curling my hair at this length...

Products Used:

FACE: BB skin foundation, BB creamy concealer, Mac msf natural.
CHEEKS: Nars Laguna, Mac Moon River, Illamasqua Lover blush.
LIPS: NYX Ceto lipstick, NYX Sweetheart lipgloss. (Loving this combo btw)
EYES: Nars Laguna in crease, Mac blacktrack fluidline on upper and lower lashline, Mac Zoomlash mascara.

Currently my skin has been really upset, and i'm trying to find out what the cause is - once I have sussed it out I will keep you informed. I know in photos my skin looks quite clear but it isn't, as I say this is after makeup application - not before! Before, I have lots of juicy scars that I wish would dissapear, and I'm determined to make this happen! Only the past year I have been wearing either a tinted moisturiser or foundation due to acne hitting me hard at age 22, before that my skin was FLAWLESS. Anyway I will keep you updated with my skin journey :)

Enjoy the rest of your day!

BEAUTIFUL!! The conical wand is my absolute favourite :) xxx

Jo said...

Great FOTD! I also have problems with scars from old acne and I recently went into Neals Yard to pick up some of the items you recommended and I also asked the girl in there what she recommended for scars and she suggested Rosehip Oil. Just thought I would mention it because I know its such a big thing for me and wanted to share with you. :) x

i love the curly look but i have a problem with how long it takes and it not staying in for the day. Is the conical better than the old fashioned tong? Also how long does it take you and from washing your hair, what do you put in your hair ie. mousse etc and anything to set it? Thanks

Rosa said...

I love the fotd-you look beautiful as usual! Maybe your breakouts are caused by stress? I tend to break out more when I'm really stressed about things like exams.

Mevish said...

BEAUTIFUL! Your hair looks gorgeous :D

hi hun...you look so pretty and i quite like the simpel look..the lips really look natural..liking the combo on you.. i suggest you use nyx smokey look lipgloss,if you would ever order online..because that would look smokin hot on you..as for the skin issue..i know exactly what ur going through cuz last weekend i broke out on one side of my face..grrrrrr ..i think because of either olive oil (which i used as a makeup cleanser) or my foundation.. i really recommend honey for a month so you can see if it will make a difference..it worked good on my scars and my scars are a lot darker..well good luck xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

The hair's really nice.

Cat said...

Beautiful! I am growing my hair out and can't wait until it's long enough for the conical wand!

I have had awful skin to due exams lately, lots of spots and dry red, sore skin. Not a pretty sight.

Belle Du Jour said...

Have you tried any Decelor products yet? I highly recommend!

KRYSTAL said...

Rocaille said...

jagratti said...

Your hair looks lush! Can't wait until my hairs long enough to curl, its currently growing out from a tragic pixie cut :(
Have you tried bio oil for the acne scarimg? It works a treat if you use it nightly and it doesnt feel greasy at all!
Btw which conical wand do you use?

Much Love xx

what the hell!?!? Me too my skin has been a bastard ;( what's up in the air huh? Well, THANK GOD for makeup is all I can say... master of disguise. You look insatiable as always doll ;)

Carly said...

I know how you feel about the skin issues!

Mine has suddenly gone mad again..don't know whats caused it this time. Last time Cetaphil was the cause that made my forehead CRAZY!

It's so annoying isn't it, it's like a never ending bloody battle. Hopefully it'll calm down soon x

ellamarie84 said...

looks fab! I need to get one of those conical wands. This is very similar to the look I do everyday. Love it you look gorge!

luv ur blogs-sad to hear about your skin playing up!

i noticed the same with mine recently- I found that i was getting both a mixture of cystic acne and small raised white heads all over- this was esp distressing because i had such clear skin before...

having refused to not believe that my makeup was the cause(since i am obsessed with makeup)-i rellised that there was a link between the break out and the makeup- i found that after not wearing any makeup (yikes yes) for about 3 days it improved. I reintroduced them one by one to find it was the highly pigmented stuff- like the bright mac lipsticks in saint germain, barry m lip colours and nyx round lipsticks...

this is soooo sad because i love the finishes they give...

try switching lipsticks n eyeshadows.may not be foundation-good luck and stay gorgeouss!!

beautiful! I love the curls.

bubblegarm said...

Than you so much for your recommendations and kind words, i really appreciate it. x

@Tali I know the skin foundation is amazing :) my husband even keeps complimenting :) I may have to turn to the orange flower once I get some money :)

@Jo yeah the rosehip seed oil is great, i have that too but hardly ever usae it, thanks for reminding me :) Neals Yard is truly amazing :)

@littlemissmakeup the conical wand is so nice to have as it gives a different effect to the tong, its more "beachy" and tousled. I use a serum and then the heat protector by CHI. x

@Rosa ur 100% right, im SO stressed right now, so they are probably stress related, but im going to add and eliminate some products to see if anythings triggering it off. x

@sherona thanks hun, i will def order the smokey lipgloss if i do ever place an online order or ill request it in a swap, thanks :) hope ur skin clears up too xxxx

@belledujour decleor is probably the only brand i havent tried :) hmmm

@jagratti i used to use bio oil so much and loved it and then it stopped working for me as my skin got too used to it, the conical wand is by babylis, £24.95 (boots)

@anonymous wow i went a whole week without makeup but they were still appearing, like i got some on the side of my face, now its moved to the forhead and chin, its a real pain. luckily i think mines hormonal and stress related, and possibly some irritation caused by products? i will keep u all informed.

Hi,

Sorry to hear about the skin troubles. I have to agree with anon on the chickpea flour with tomato juice, it works wonders for the skin.

Have you added any new hair care products? I find that some of the serums/glossing finishes for hair makes me breakout on the face.


And oh make sure you wipe your cell phone with some alcohol based wipes regularly, I was breaking out on the cheek and chin only on one side .... the culprit was my cellphone!!!

Hope it clears up

When men complimemt make-up you know its good stuff! Hubby has great taste! :)

deannamargaret said...

Omg I thought my skin was so weird! I had FLAWLESS skin up until I was 20. I feel like I'm going backwards! Maybe it's just adult stress or more makeup products, but either way, it really sucks being in your 20's and breaking out! lol

tina_mbc said...

Sorry to hear about your skin giving you trouble, although I wouldn't be able to tell from the pics...

You don't seem to have any acne scarring to me...are you sure it's not sth that a exfoliating/moisturizing combo over time can't help decrease...? xoxo

Catanya said...

Hi sweet Bubble!!
I have had the same skin trouble for the past years. Actually, I was a teen without any spots and they hit me at university and now they never go...
Hope we can find the cure soon, hun.

littlemissmakeup said...

Thanks for the response, what serum do you use? Also can you use the heat protector spray on dry hair, you see ive cut out blow drying as my hair is in bad condition as it is, so I wash my hair at night and sleep on it damp but so its pointless putting the spray on then as it will have lost effect by morning i would imagine. Im currently using a Charles Worthington one but i dont think its protecting my hair, its still as breakable at the ends. :(

You're beautiful! :)
