LA ROCHE POSAY SEROZINC (REVIEW)

Hey Beauties! :D

Today is your lucky day because you will be one of the first to know about the NEW serozinc from the amazing La Roche Posay skincare range.


So what is this product? Well, the NEW serozinc is a purifying, smoothing and mattifying mist specially designed to target the key signs of oily, acne-prone and irritated skin. How amazing does that sound? Well, ladies and gents this product is absolutely worth it! I've been using the serozinc for a while now and I've noticed my pores are smaller (my pimples are less and aren't as big) and my complexion is smoothed (which has created a perfect base for my makeup), and I am less oily throughout the day (mattifying properties). Which is the best feeling in the world!

MAKEUP MANIAAH'S YOUTUBE CHANNEL

Hey Beauties! :D

Exciting news ahead!

I have ... drum roll ...

A YOUTUBE channel! I've wanted to do one for about a year now, and I've finally decided to bite the bullet and get one.

It was such an experience uploading my first video! I was excited and nervous at the same time. It honestly took me ages to push "publish." However, I got the courage to film one and even though it was my first time, I think I have done fairly well.

I'm also going to be upgrading my camera and lighting and audio. So far, my audio has been upgraded- which is mega exciting. However I am still looking for some amazing lights, and an affordable camera. THEY ARE LIKE $$$. But I'm saving up and I can't wait to grab one. If you know of some good lights, or a camera- please comment! It would make my research so much easier!

Most of you are still figuring out how to use powdered contouring products, however today I'm going to give you some tips on how to use cream contouring products. If you would like me to do a blog post on powdered contouring- just comment below and I'll comment back.

NUDE BY NATURE BRUSHES (REVIEW)

Hey Beauties! :D

I haven't done any reviews on brushes before, so I thought it would be a great idea to review the new Nude By Nature brushes. Firstly, can I just say- they are absolutely amazing!

Well, I've come to the rescue, and I'm going to tell you exactly how to cover up dark eye circles. How cool does that sound? "Goodbye dark eye circles! I'm not going to miss you at all.

I'M STILL HERE

Hey Beauties! :)

You are probably wondering why I haven't posted in ages- right? Well to tell you the truth, I've actually moved house. So for those that understand the work involved in moving house, will understand why I haven't been able to blog. It's hella stressful!

However! I'm almost done and hopefully I'll have a post up by the end of this week! How exciting!! Also my professional website is looking awesome too, and I'll post a link to it, in the next blog post!

I am also thinking of creating a YouTube channel with my beauty friend - so keep your eyes peeled!

Well my beauties, until we speak again.

ST. TROPEZ SELF TAN BRONZING MOUSSE (REVIEW)

Hey Beauties! :D

I am very excited to start 2016 with a product review! This one is definitely worth a mention. Late last year I did a blog post on fake tanning. So I decided to take my own advice along with some hardcore fake tanners, and try out fake tan. FOR THE FIRST TIME. I was nervous and excited and hoping to death I wouldn't turn out orange.

Hey Beauties! :D

Happy New Year everyone! Welcome to 2016, welcome to Makeup Maniaah. Another year of blogging and trying out every new makeup/ beauty product out there. Who is excited?

To start off this fabulous year, I thought of doing a blog post about how to create a smokey eye. Now, I know you maybe wondering why it's titled "NYE bold smokey eye" because clearly NYE is over, however the smokey eye look is a classic. And I may have forgotten to publish this blog. <oops> But thats ok- right? It's here now and I'm really hoping you will get something out of it.
