Winter Morning Routine

As I have recently done a ‘Winter Night-Time Routine’ I thought it was only right to do a morning routine as well. In winter I never want to leave my bed so I will stay in bed for as long as I can. Therefore you will find out I do multiple things at the same time in the morning haha. None the less I hope you enjoy reading my morning routine in winter.

As soon as my alarm goes off in the morning I automatically put it on snooze. I will then have another 15 minutes in bed before I finally decide to get up. Once I’m up the first thing I do is head to the bathroom to wash my face and brush my teeth. This is the point in the morning when I will make my breakfast. Normally I want something quick and easy so ill either have cereal or toast. To save time in a morning I will take my breakfast to my room and eat it while I’m doing my make up. I don’t take too long to do my make up, whenever I do my everyday make up it will normally take me out 15 minutes. I will then do my hair, normally I’m going to work so I’ll either put it up in a ponytail or a bun, whichever I feel like on the day. Afterwards I will put my jewellery on, day-to-day I wear my earrings, a necklace, a ring and my apple watch. Finally I will get changed and put some perfume on. I am currently loving my Jimmy Choo perfume. I will then put my shoes on and get my bag together before heading out the door for the day ahead. 

Christmas Make Up Look 2018

As Christmas is upon us I thought it is only right to do a Christmas make up look. Especially since I haven’t done a make up look in a long time. I have done quite a simple eye’s with a nude lip as I think it looks very pretty at Christmas time. Also check out my Youtube channel hannahxoxoblog. I hope you enjoy looking at my Christmas make up look.

How I Clean My Make Up Brushes/Sponges

Today I had to clean my make up brushes so I thought that I would share with you how I clean them and what products I use. I love using these products and method to clean my make up brushes and sponges. It cleans them really well and doesn’t ruin my brushes at all. Also check out my youtube channel HannahxoxoBlog. I hope you enjoy!

IMG_1746IMG_1745IMG_1743

I will start off by wetting my make up brush and my blender cleanser solid, and swirling my brush around in my blender cleanser solid to create a lather. I will then create even more of a lather using circular motion on the small bobbly bits of the Kawaii Cleansing Brush Egg. I will also use the ridges on the cleansing brush egg to help get all the product out of my make up brushes. Once I think my brush is clean I will start to rinse my brush using clean water, still using the cleansing brush egg to help remove all the lather. When my brush is clean and rinsed I will squeeze the brush hairs on a towel to remove any excess water, and move my brush in circular motions on the towel to dry the brush hairs slightly. Finally I will make sure the brush hairs are all in the right direction and let the brush dry over an edge. I do the exact same method for cleaning my smaller make up brushes and sponges as well.

Holy Grail Make Up Product’s 2018

Today I thought I would share with you my holy grail make up product’s that I can’t live without and let you know why. Some of these products are high end and others are drugstore. Also check out my youtube channel hannahxoxoblog. I hope you enjoy!

IMG_1207IMG_E1208IMG_E1209IMG_E1210IMG_E1211IMG_E1212IMG_1213IMG_E1214IMG_E1215

Too Faced HangoveRX Primer:
I have had this primer for a few months now and I absoultely love it! I can not live with out it. It primes my face ready for make up perfectly. It’s tacky on my skin but not too tacky so I know my make up will stick to my skin well but also blend well. It’s got a pump and smells gorgeous as well, which is an added bonus. I can’t recommend this primer enough.

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer:
I have loved this concealer for a few years now. I have gone through so many bottles of this and I always find myself going back to it. It has really good coverage, it’s not heavy on my skin and doesn’t emphasis any dryness. It’s also really cheap as well.

RCMA No Colour Powder:
I use this powder for so many different uses. I will set my under eyes, my whole face with this. As well as baking my face, carving out my cheeks bones and tidying up my contour. It doesn’t make my face look really powdery or dry either. You get so much product for the price, which is fantastic.

Nars ‘Laguna’ Bronzer:
I absoutley love this bronzer. The shade is perfect. You can contour and bronze up the skin with this shade. Which is perfect for me as I am too lazy to apply contour and a bronzer. Again I definitely recommend this product and it’s definitely a holy grail product for me.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in ‘Exposed’:
I am always chopping and changing up my blush. And when it came to doing this blog and thinking of my holy grail blush I had to go with this one. I always reach for this blush day-to-day when I’m going to work and that. It is such a perfect mutual shade. Day-to-day I don’t want anything too pink so I just think shade is perfect. It blends so easy as well.

Mac Mineralize Skin Finish in ‘Soft & Gentle’
I wasn’t too sure about mentioning this product as I have only been using for just over a month. But I have been using it pretty much everyday since I got it. I absolutely love it and gives my skin such a gorgeous glow on my cheek bones.

Soap & Glory Archery 2in1 Pencil and Brush:
I love using this when I am filling in my eyebrows. I use this just to define my arch. I find this is such a good dupe for high end eyebrows pencils as well.

NYX Tame & Frame Tinted Brow Pomade:
Again I love using this when I am filling in my eyebrows. After I have defined my arch with the pencil I will fill in my eyebrow with this pomade. I love using a pomade as you can get a gradual effect at the start of your eyebrow. I find it such a good dupe for the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade as well.

NYX Tinted Brow Mascara:
I love using this to set my eyebrows in place for the day. I also find this will define my natural eyebrow hairs as well which I really like. The shape and size of the spoolie is perfect as well.

Morphe 35O Palette:
Whenever I go travelling or go somewhere and I need to take my make up with me I will nearly always take this palette. It is quite a big palette but the packaging is sturdy and I’m never scared its going to break on me. There are so many different shades within this palette and you can create so many different looks with it, which I love. The pigmentation of these eyeshadows as well is unbelievable.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara:
When I was trying to choose my holy grail mascara I found it quite hard. But when I thought about the mascara I always go back to and will forever keep repurchasing. It is this mascara. It gives me the perfect amount of length and volume to my lashes. I can easily apply mascara to my inner corner lashes and my bottom lashes. The wand is such a perfect shape and size. Nothing can beat the price and formula of this mascara.

Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in ‘Bitch Perfect’:
Day-to-day I won’t normally apply lipstick, I will just apply some lip balm as when I’m at work I don’t always remember to re-apply my lipstick or touch it up. But, when I have a day off or I’m doing something else I will normally apply this lipstick. It’s nice and moisturising on my lips and such a natural colour.

Mac Fix +:
I am always using this eveytime I wear make up. I use this when I want to intensive an eyeshadow, to set my make up, or if my make up is looking a bit powdery I will apply this to my face and bounce it in with a beauty blender so my make up melts into my skin. it’s such a multi-useful product and I couldn’t live without it.

Beauty Blenders:
I have two beauty blender to share with you. The first one is the Original Beauty Blender with the pointed tip and rounded bottom. And the second one is the Real Techniques Complexion Sponge again with a pointed tip but with a flat bottom. I love using this when my face is feeling a little dry and my make up is going on weird, I will just apply my foundation and/or concealer with a beauty blender. The flat bottom is also perfect for tidying up my contour and baking my face.

August Favourite’s 2017

It’s that time of month again, time for me to share with you what I have been loving throughout August.

IMG_6893
Soap & Glory 2in1 Pencil & Brush:
I have loved this product before but I ran out of it and whenever I tried to repurchase it they wouldn’t have it in my shade ‘hot chocolate’. So, I decided to buy the shade darker ‘dark chocolate’ to see how it looks. The shade is a really good match actually and I have fallen back in love with it. I find it so easy and quick to fill in my brow’s.

 

IMG_6894
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer:
Again, I ran out of this product and forgot to repurchase it. This time I got a shade lighter than what I normally get so I can highlight and conceal my under eye’s. If you haven’t tried this concealer out I would definitely recommend to. The coverage is really good, it’s not drying under my eyes and it is really reasonably priced.

 

IMG_6895
Real Techniques Expert Face Brush:
Normally when I blend out my concealer I will either use my beauty blender or my Real Techniques Sponge. However, I have been very lazy with blending out my concealer and I find this brush blends it out so easy and quick. Normally when I blend my concealer out with a brush I find it loses some of the coverage. But I do not find that happens with this brush. I have fallen back in love with it.

Batiste 2in1 Invisible Dry Shampoo & Conditioner:
I recieved this in my Glossybox and I was so excited to try it out and I have fallen in love with it. I tend to use this on second day hair, when my hair isn’t greasy but its not the cleanest. It doesn’t have the white cast which a normal dry shampoo has. I also love the smell of it. When I run out of this I will definitely repurchase the full size.

 

IMG_6897
Levi Top:
Ever since I bought this I have been wearing it non-stop. I bought it when I when shopping in Cambridge with Casey and I have fallen in love with it. I love wearing it with my khaki new look trousers, my black topshop joni jeans or some black leggings.

 

IMG_6900
New Look Khaki Trouser’s:
I wasn’t too sure about these trousers when I first bought them, but I love them. I love wearing these with my Levi top tucked in and the ends rolled up. I find them so comfortable. I definitely want to buy some more trousers for day to day.

 

fullsizeoutput_6d7
H&M Black Tight’s:
I was in the need of some new tights for work so when I went to Cambridge shopping I picked some up. I decided to pick some up from H&M as I haven’t tried their ones before. And I really like them. Around the waist it has a elastic support bit and I love it. I find they support my waist and stops them sliding down an me not having to pull them up all the time.

 

And that is everything I have been loving throughout August. Also check out my Youtube Channel hannahxoxoblog. I hope you enjoyed and I hope to see you soon! Bye!
