Woodland Walks on a Warm Day | Prehen Woods

Wednesday, 31 May 2017
Hi, today's post is just some photos I took in Prehen Woods which is close to where I live, although despite this it was my first time being there. 

Prehen Wood has been named as "one of Northern Ireland's rare and irreplaceable ancient woods" which has existed since at least 1600, although back then it was a lot larger. 

Within the woods there are two routes set out, one is half a mile and the other is 1 mile long. The whole walk was so peaceful as all you could hear was birds chirping and the weather was amazing as well. Along the walk, there were so many wildflowers and nothing was at all disturbed. This is rare for most unguarded woodlands, as usually there is some hint at the fact that there were people here before you, from litter etc. but it was so well cared for, which made the whole experience even better.

How I Conceal my Blemishes | Makeup Revolution Ultra Professional Cover and Conceal

Tuesday, 30 May 2017
Today's post is a review of my ultimate concealer palette, that I find so good for concealing blemishes and dark under-eye circles and giving me the flawless finish that I'm always looking for.

Makeup Revolution's Ultra Professional Cover and Conceal Palette in the shade Light. Available in Superdrug for only £6.

Packaging
This palette comes in a box which gives a really good representation of the shades on the back of the box. The palette itself comes in the form of a sleek black palette, which is easily kept clean and keeps everything sealed really well so that the product does not dry out. There is also a large mirror on the inside of the lid and so this palette is perfect for travelling as well.

Application
I don't particularly have a routine to applying to concealer, some days I use my fingers and other days I'll use a brush or beauty blender. I've found that to blend the concealer the best thing to use is a beauty blender as it allows for the coverage to remain without making it noticeable.

Formula
The concealer formula is quite thick in consistency and so provides great coverage for blemishes or dark circles. However, it is not so thick as to make it look cakey.

Colour
This palette comes in light, light-medium and medium-dark, so there is something to suit everyone. I got the light palette, and I think that this is the perfect one for me as I'm quite pale. Although even when I'm wearing a tan, the darker shades in the palette still suit and so that's another reason why I like having this variety of shades all in one handy palette.

Wear
Once I apply this concealer in the morning, that's it for the day, I don't need to touch it up or anything throughout the day. Maybe if I'm going out at night I'll put a little bit extra on but I probably wouldn't even need to.

Price
At only £6, this palette is extremely affordable, especially for the amount of product that's actually included and the quality of the concealer palette.

Overall
There are not many concealer palettes available on the high street and Revolution has got the perfect one here. The quality of the packaging and the concealer itself is amazing, especially for just £6 and although I do prefer a liquid concealer, I will definitely keep using this one when I need a little extra coverage.

Primark False Nails Review - Mermaid

Monday, 29 May 2017
Hi

For my first post on this blog, I thought I would do a quick review on Primark's £2 false nails, which I got in the shade Mermaid (a blue/purple shade).

Primark Mermaid False Nails - Only £2

I am definitely a fan of wearing false nails, and I believe that they are less harmful to your nails that Acrylics or Gels. However, I absolutely hate having short nails and so falsies are my best friends, especially when I'm going for a night out. 

In comparison with branded false nails like Elegant Touch, the quality is not always as high with Primark falsies, however, this new range is a lot closer and at a fraction of the price their pretty good. 

I have been using Primark nails for a good while and although the nails themselves are very long lasting, I have found that the glue they provide in the pack isn't the best and so I do tend to use another glue from a brand and I've found that Kiss, Elegant Touch and Nailene are good options. 

These nails, in particular, may not be ideal for someone who isn't used to having long nails or works with their hands a lot. Although that being said, I found that to get used to having longer nails, it was helpful for me to start off with wearing shorter styles. That's another thing which is amazing about Primark false nails, they have loads of nails in different shapes, lengths, colours and finishes from only £1. 

What is your favourite way to wear your nails?
