#HANDS DOWN – THIS IS THE BEST MAKEUP ARTIST IN THE WORLD ūüíčūüíĄ

Good Morning Pouter!

As you may or may not know, I love contouring and highlighting. Well, not so much highlighting, but definitely contouring.

I often share photos on our Facebook page showing how I look before and after.

There is one makeup artist and yes only ONE that perfects the whole contouring application. He inspires me with his before and after photos on a daily basis. One can only dream of being as good as he is, when it comes to drawing lines on women’s faces, transforming their “canvases” into works of living and breathing gorgeous art!

He is:

The best part? He doesn’t do the whole less is more nonsense, but only because he knows how to apply the more! Fine line people, fine liquid line!

He is touring the world where people can attend his workshops. So if you’re lucky enough to go…. GO!

Smitten about my Mitten…

Okay Ladies,

Thanks to BeautyWorx for introducing me to this beauty, I am absolutely in love!

Sadly I am one of those lazy people when it comes to skin care after a long days work or a late night out,

I know how bad it is for your skin and i REALLY do try hard to stick to my skin care routine and most of the time i succeed but I do have days that are just poo. So if you are like me, don’t change your browser page as this little baby is absolutely perfect for you and every other person out there that loves their skin.

Introducing SMITTEN

Smitten01

BE SMITTEN WITH YOUR MITTEN

Do you like to smooth, ‚Äúsqueaky‚ÄĚ clean feeling on your face after washing but find foaming cleansers leave your skin feeling dry & cleansing milks remain on your skin?

Maintaining our skins natural PH levels are vital and this is done by simply not striping the natural oils from the surface of our skins and eliminating additional oils that may clog the pores & cause irritation.

With just warm water, SMITTEN gives a mild daily skin exfoliation while preserving its natural & delicate PH balance!

Absolutely nothing but warm to hot water needed for a beautiful skin ‚Äď Smittens even remove waterproof mascara! That‚Äôs why SMITTEN are perfect for all ages, all skin types and all budgets.

By eliminating costly cleansers, wipes and eye makeup removers that can irritate your skin ‚Äď SMITTEN gently cleanses your skin preparing it for your plumping serums, hydrating moisturizers and active ingredients that can be absorbed more effectively after it‚Äôs micro exfoliation.

SMITTEN are made up from fabric woven with fibers that have super-fine density. These fibers are 1/100th the diameter of a human hair and 1/20th the diameter of a single strand of silk. These tiny fibers are able to penetrate the finest, microscopic particles of oil, dirt and even bacteria on any surface.

Unlike the rounded threads of ordinary cotton cloth, which just push dirt along the surface of the skin, SMITTEN numerous wedge-shaped fibers actually capture and pull particles of oil, dirt, and bacteria  into the internal structure of the cloth and away from your skin.

The result is superior cleansing that eliminates the very environment (oil, dirt, bacteria, and grime) in which skin conditions can erupt.

SMITTEN care is also very simple ‚Äď they wash like a dream. Use any mild soap, hand soap is best. Rinse thoroughly and allow to air dry naturally.

When traveling with your SMITTEN use the PVC pouch & forget about the cumbersome, leaking cleansers and eye makeup removers!

Smitten

I won’t lie as always I am a bit skeptical with trying out new things and because you don’t need to use your smitten with soap or a cleansing lotion i did as always raise an eyebrow at first, So after getting mine i went straight home (Keep in mind this was after a days work so I did have a full face of make-up, from foundation, to blush, 7 x eye colors, mascara the works) and I put my new investment straight to test and yes by my surprise I was and still am absolutely amazed by this fantastic product, I have been struggling with a bit of a dry skin during the past few months due to winter and i have a pretty set out skin routine from cleansing to scrub (No not every night), mask, toning and moisturizing and sadly even-though i use a high end brand I cannot say I had the same results with my products as I have with my Smitten after just one use, as you will see in the Video below my skin has breakouts (which is due to the oil content in my skin) which i did not have before hand and my skin was Uber dry so much that my foundation would flake even with wearing a primer AND moisturizer.

I have used the Smitten everyday since the weekend and cannot see how i would ever use a cleansing product like i did i however still tone and Moisturize though, but the Smitten exfoliates and cleans for me and my skin’s natural oil balance is back in balance, My skin is feeling silky smooth and Looks great (apart from the few breakouts, but you know what they say… it gets worst before it gets better hehe)

 

Seriously ladies this is definitely something everyone should invest in, I can with a 100% honesty say this pink beauty works like a bomb.

Please see the attached link for my first ever “vlog”, i was just going to blog it but the photo’s just did not do the smitten justice.

Please let me know what you think of this great invention and if you will be trying it out or have already? ūüôā

Please note that I am in no way shape or form associated with BeautyWorx or Smitten and this is MY opinion and strictly my own Opinion.

Have a rocking weekend and stay warm

Beauty_Worx…One stop Online shop

Good evening, Poutlings.

I trust that you are all well and keeping warm.

Firstly I would like to apologize for being MIA for so long, If you know me personally you should know I have recently started working full time as a Make-up artist for one of my favorite brands, so I have been occupied else where, I will however try to blog more often as I have so many events and happenings documented that needs to be blogged.

Anyway enough about that, Lets get into it.

My blogs for tonight will be a two part blog of which this one will be about BeautyWorx and the one to follow about one of the products I purchased through BeautyWorx.

BeautyWorx_Logo_1

BeautyWorx is a online based shop for all your beauty needs.

Beauty-Worx was founded by Wendy and started with her business partner Bronwyn in 2013. Both have a love for anything beautiful but just don’t have the time to crawl the shops looking for their favourite brand or testing the new craze. It is also important that we sell the more niche, unusual or high-end products that we have already tried and tested.

“Our online store is available to anyone and everyone – even though we are ‘online’ we do our best to help wherever possible and like our customers to know that there is a person behind the pc. Our purchasing process is a simple one and who wouldn‚Äôt want to buy their Favorit products or try some new ones in the comfort of their own home completely outside of office hours?”

BeautyWorx stock product such as

* Make-up Designory (MUD)

What sets BeautyWorx aside from any other online store?

Know your products

Hellooooo Poutlings

If you know me or have been following me via twitter, facebook or any other form of social networking,

you’ll know that I am very much against animal cruelty as is the Lovely MissFitz and SandyLash.

Over the past few days doing my general networking on facebook surrounding animals in need¬†I’ve¬†had a few people ask me how would they know if the products they use are animal cruelty free.

First off, please know the difference between animal cruelty and animal testing.

Animal Cruelty:

Cruelty to animals

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
“Cruelty to animals, also called¬†animal abuse¬†or¬†animal neglect, is the infliction of¬†suffering¬†or¬†harm¬†upon non-human¬†animals, for purposes other than self-defense or survival. More narrowly, it can be harm for specific gain, such as killing animals for food or for their fur, although opinions differ with respect to the method of slaughter. It usually encompasses inflicting harm for personal amusement or to fulfill¬†zoosadistic¬†impulses. Diverging viewpoints are held by jurisdictions throughout the world.”

Animal Testing:

Animal Testing

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

“The terms animal testing,¬†animal experimentation, animal research,¬†in vivo¬†testing, and¬†vivisection¬†have similar¬†denotations¬†but different¬†connotations. Literally, “vivisection” means the “cutting up” of a living animal, and historically referred only to experiments that involved the¬†dissection¬†of live animals. The term is occasionally used to refer pejoratively to any experiment using living animals; for example, the¬†Encyclop√¶dia Britannica¬†defines “vivisection” as: “Operation on a living animal for experimental rather than healing purposes; more broadly, all experimentation on live animals”,[11][17][18]¬†although dictionaries point out that the broader definition is “used only by people who are opposed to such work”.[19]¬†The word has a negative connotation, implying torture, suffering, and death.[4]¬†The word “vivisection” is preferred by those opposed to this research, whereas scientists typically use the term “animal experimentation”.[20][21]

StopAnimalCruelty

With that out of the way I know a great deal of us love our animal but we aren’t to clued up about the products we use and end up having a whole range of animal cruelty products taking up the space in our¬†cupboards.
Although i am not the biggest PETA fan around they are among some of the sites that have lists of products not just cosmetics but also your general day to day household item that are animal cruelty free and of course those that are not.
I know some of you have heard it yet still find it hard to believe but it is in fact true, Yes MAC cosmetics are not animal cruelty free, they have up their animal cruelty free status to be able to sell their products in China, Unfortunately animal testing is a requirement to be able to sell in China, but have no fear the EU has banned animal testing on all cosmetic’s so hopefully soon China will regain¬†contentiousness¬†of what they are doing and follow in the EU’s foot steps *Keeps fingers crossed*

Here are a few links to help you know which of your products are animal cruelty free and which aren’t.

I really hope you find this helpful and that you will be somewhat more educated on the products you use.
Looking forward to hearing from you in response to where your favorite products lie on these lists.
Happy Tuesday
