The Autumn Edit | Beauty

The Autumn Edit | Beauty by alanajwise

Autumn is finally upon us, however the weather is still playing it's mind-games as it's been super warm and sunny the past few days! I thought I would share with you things I have my eye on for the up and coming colder months. 

Dusty Rose Inspired Chit Chat Makeup Tutorial | YouTube

Thursday, 24 September 2015
So I'm back with my SECOND YouTube video, and this time I'm talking (cringe..) and it's a super chatty one of the look below. If you decide to watch this, grab yourself some snacks and a cuppa (highly recommended). All products used are listed in the description box of the video! 

Odacité Jojoba-Lavender Serum Concentrate | Review

Sunday, 20 September 2015

If you have read my previous post regarding my skin then you will now that my main issue, which I am currently trying to combat is that I suffer with clogged and congested skin. Previous to me trying the Proactiv+ 3 Step System skincare regime, I was on the hunt for something to help reduce/remove my clogged and congested pores. 

NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser | NARSissit

Thursday, 17 September 2015
If you saw my recent NARS haul (you can find it here) you would know that I picked up the Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser. I actually bought this online and chose my shade by digging through loads of 'swatch' images via the internet and lucky for me I picked the right shade. I'm in the colour 'Alaska' which I believe is the 3rd lightest shade - so I'm quite pale. 'Alaska' is light with a neutral balance of pink and yellow undertones. I haven't been out in the sun (not that there has been any this summer) so this shade will see me through all of winter.

Proactiv+ Deluxe Core Kit | Introduction to my skin

Wednesday, 9 September 2015
I'm sure you would of all heard of Proactiv+, with brand ambassadors such as Adam Levine and Nicole Scherzinger this company isn't shy of the public eye. Proactiv+ claims to help fight more than just breakouts. It claims to deliver a more radiant and glowing complexion. Something a lot of acne-fighting products don't do. Whilst they get to the source of the blemish, they do not provide ongoing prevention of new breakouts forming and providing hydration at the same time. The Proactiv+ Deluxe Core Kit* is a scientifically advanced 3-Step System and claims to do all those things as well as helping reduce redness, pore size, fade post-blemish marks and even skin tone. 

I was kindly sent the Proactiv+ Deluxe Core Kit* to test out for a couple of months. I'm super excited to try the 3-Step System as like most people can possibly relate to, skincare is overwhelming. Skincare is becoming almost as popular as makeup, and the beauty community are there to tell us about all these cult products our local Boots or Superdrug wouldn't host. There are so many products now readily available to us that picking something out for your skin type can become a mammoth task. It can also mean a lot of trial and error, which means a lot of money spent and the possibility of exaggerating the problem. I for one know the hassle of trying to find something that works for me, and I can assure you I have spent my fair share on skincare to not even come close to fixing the problem. 

Get Ready With Me | YouTube Video

Sunday, 6 September 2015
So after my first (failed) attempt at a YouTube video, I decided to create another one. Hopefully one of many more to come. I decided I would do a sped up version of myself getting ready, no talking involved, nothing too awkward for myself to handle. The quality isn't the best, and I am planning on getting some lighting and a new lens to film with. If any of you have any recommendations on a lens for a Nikon D3100 then please leave it in the comments below. 

Let me know what you think of the video - if you have any requests then please leave them in the comments section.
