What 10 Beauty Products To Buy From Space NK?

I know from personal experience that shopping for highend beauty products can be quite intimidating, especially if you're not too familiar with certain brands. I normally tend to stay clear of beauty counters and do the majority of my beauty shopping online, after reading numerous product reviews of course. If you've followed my blog for a while you'll know I pretty much log onto Space NK on a weekly basis, to see what new products are "Hot" in the beauty world. The amount of NDulge points I've racked up over the years can certainly vouch for my spending habits, hehe. So I thought I would put together a little guide of 10 "must have" beauty products, that you can pick up in store or order online from Space NK.

One of my all time favourite bases has to be Nars Sheer Glow Foundation £31. It's just a great all round foundation that can be used to create a medium coverage, flawless satin finish for any special occasion, or become an easy to apply light, everyday staple. Coincidentally, it also happens to be the first product I ever bought from Space NK, all those many moons ago. If you fancy reading my review in full, I'll leave you the link "Nars Sheer Glow Foundation Review".

Summer Beauty Edit: 10 Holiday Essentials

Whether you're jetting off to a glamorous tropical location, planning a fun filled Disney experience,
 having a sun soaked girls only trip, or just a chilled out staycation, one thing remains the same - wherever a beauty blogger goes, so does her giant makeup bag. Creating the perfect capsule travel "beauty wardrobe" is incredibly hard. So I've done all the hard work for you. I've put together a few of what I think, are my "Summer Holiday, Beauty Essentials" that will save you a tonne of room in your carry-on, ready for all those duty free exclusives.

When the sun's shining the last thing I want to be doing is caking on a full face of foundation. In the warmer months I'm all about light, easy to apply bases. A personal favourite of mine is the It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream, I even flew halfway across the world to pick it up (oh the jokes). It packs a punch when it comes to coverage, while still maintaining a light airy feel on the skin. It also contains a UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum SPF of 50, which is amazing, most bases very rarely have such a high SPF factor. So being able to even out my skintone, whilst staying protected is everything I look for in a holiday worthy base. The Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream is a nice alternative if you can't get your hands on the It one, though it doesn't give as much coverage.

June 2016 Beauty Favourites

Considering how jam-packed my May 2016 Beauty Favourites was, I thought June would be a more quiet affair. Even though in retrospect, I spent the majority of the month bare faced, due to feeling unwell, I still managed to discover quite a few beauty products that are swiftly becoming staples in my makeup and skincare routines. So lets run thought all the products shall we?

I briefly mentioned this treatment in my Blame The Beauty Bloggers Edit #2, but it's continued to be a fixture in my somewhat "lazy" routine this month. A drop on a cotton pad, swiped all over the face leaves my skin fresh and clean while maintaining hydration and giving gentle exfoliation. It has a no rinse formula and it's so easy to use, especially after I've removed my makeup. It's actually shocking how much product can still be left on your skin, after your first cleanse and this insures every last trace of makeup is removed.
