Current Skincare Routine -Winter

Hey Boos!
Weather is changing & so is my skincare! Even though I am definetly oily/combination type, my dryer areas of my face are drying out even more than usual, which I am noticing through my makeup. Even though I have had some crappy break outs here and there, I think I have minimised it by following this routine. OBVIOUSLY this wont work for everyone!! But it works for me. And I am enjoying the products I have been using. Let me know if you would like any reviews on these products. :) Sme photos at the end.

  1. CLEANSER - I Cleanse twice with APIVITA Cleansing Gel for Oily/Combination. This takes away these grease and grime day & night I LOVE the fresh feeling after. Can't explain my love for this brand!!
  2. SCRUB - I try & do this every day atleast once. I'm still looking for my HG scrub, At the moment liking DR LEWINS Facial Polishing Gel.
  3. TONER - YOU MUST TONE!!!!!!!! I think I have panic attacks when I start to end a bottle of toner. You need to restore the PH balance. I really think using toner has helped blemishes! They say if you have oily skin to stay clear of Alcohol based toners/products, even though it will feel amazing at first, you will later produce DOUBLE the normal oil amount & thats nasty. Im using CLEAN & CLEAR Oil-free toner, smells so nice!
  4. MOISTERISER- It has taken me so long to find a moisteriser than doesn't make me feel greasy! Finally I have found NEUTROGENA moisteriser for Combination skin. 
  5. EYE CREAM - Liking LACURA Age Vitale Eye cream.
  6. ACNE CREAM - CLEARASIL Rapid Action Spot Treatment! Good stuff.
  7. FACIAL MIST- AVENE thermal Spring water, I'm loving facial sprays. This was on sale so I thought I'd try it out. I prefer EVIAN's version though.

I applied for the 5 Day Starter Pack for Combination & Oily Skin on the website. I was pleased to receive the sample pack a week later, which consisted of 10 1.5ml samples to try out.

WHAT NIVEA SAYS: "For combination & oily skin, it is important to cleanse and regulate oil levels daily, while still keeping the skin moisterised, If oily skin is not moisterised, it overcompensates excess oil so the right moisteriser is critical for combination & oily skin- Nivea Daily Essentials care range is formulated perfectly to work with oily and combination skin to deliver fresh shine-free skin"

MY TAKE: Having Oily/Combination skin I need a cleanser that will dry out my skin well enough and a moisteriser that will do it's job- but not make me greasy & shiny throughout the day. I LOVED the feel after using the 2 IN 1 WASH & SCRUB, my face felt so fresh & great, the smell is very calming and not strong. The moisteriser is also a good product, although I still would not use it in the Summer as I still felt  it coming through on my skin after a few hours, but I would recommend this as a great Autumn/Winter Moisteriser! Out of the 2 products I would definetly purchase the WASH&SCRUB.

Water Colours for Eyes
Blues, Turquoises, Greens- Seem to be used all over the beauty blog/vlog world at the moment! These colours can look great with any eyes, especially if you want to bring out those dark arabic eyes.
Heres two of my looks:

#1 Using Kiko Cosmetics Eyeshadow Pallette - 01 Light Impulse
#2 Using Chi Chi Eye Pencil in Torquoise
I was inspired to do this one morning after watching a tutorial by the well-known  Kandee Johnson on Eyebrow Dotting. I sore alot of dots & quirky patterns with eyeliner while I was in Europe and adored it.
Here's one of mine - I'll definetly be doing more.
You can do this with any type of eyeliner- I used liquid by 2Tru.

I'm totally in LOVE with these lashes!!
They arn't Dramatic, but they still give you more length and volume due to the varied sizes of hairs.
They make even a more simple eye look GLAM. I found these lashes at Hot Dollar (AUS) for about $1.99 i think... for all of these!!
which you can see I have used only two so far as they get a few uses out of each pair!
I'll definetly be stocking up!! I don't see the point in paying $18 for a PAIR of lashes..(FFS!!)

Price: $36.00 AUD
What They say-

Description:A dual purpose skin saver that creates a flawless complextion in just two steps. Firstly, apply the light weight, long lasting foundation. The formula has a whipped consistancy and a velvety finish. Secondly, flip the lid on the top, and follow with your matching concealer to mask discoloration, blemishes and dark circles.

Skin Types:All skin types.

My Verdict- What drew me to this product was the fact that it was "Two-In-One" firstly. I was looking for a daytime foundation as I like to keep my treasured M.A.C StudioFix Fluid for nighttime & weekends. The fact that it also came with concealer also made it appealing. 
To use the foundation you must twist the cap open which is fine, the weird part is the applicator given with the product0- a small spatula. At first I thought it would be an easy way to apply the product directly to the skin, but have now come to realise it's a bit annoying & I am wondering how I will be getting the remainder of the product out once the spatula can't reach it anymore. Apart from that I think the product quality wise is pretty good, its definetly not full coverage but a more medium coverage, which stays well. Although they say it is for "All skin types" I would stay away from it if you are Oily/Combination skin, (Which I am), I find it to skin after an hour or so, maybe a bit longer. But it wuld be great for Normal/Dry Skin. The Concealer is in the cap with a white (highlighter) star in the middle- I do not mind this concealer it works well with the foundation but it is definetly a light coverage. Only downfall would be the price and lack of colour range.
Wear this with a translucent powder over the top for a beautiful finish.

Arabic Inspired Double-Winged Smokey
This look does take more effort than a normal Smokey Eye- But daymmm the amount of compliments you get are worth it!!
*Tip* To get that winged effect, use Sticky Tape  - Just place the tape where you desire your wings & use it as a guide. Less messy and great when your a beginner at an Arabic Eye.
I teamed this with a nice Nude Lip- BYS Lipstick in Champagne Rain.

My "LOOK AT ME!!" Lips of the month.
I know this is nothing "new", but most of us (and me!) are/and have been for quite a while been rocking the "Nude Lip/Natural Lip" which is ofcourse total GLAM, but ladies try and step away from your Safe ZONE i like to refer to it for atleast ONE night when you want to feel extra special ;) maybe extra attention even! And try a Bright lip!! Doesn't have to be pink- can be orange, coral, purple, mauve for example.

*Tip* For that FULLER sexy lip- Colour your lips in with your chosen lip liner, than your lipstick, and lastly your gloss & BOOM. Sexual ;)
I'd love to see what my readers are capable of! Photo responses please :D
