Product Review: Jolie Beauty UniGlow 24 Karat Gold Skin Perfecting Elixir

The search for the perfect facial oil is over! Jolie Beauty’s UniGlow 24 Karat Gold Skin Perfecting Elixir is here to change your life.

For those of you who haven’t heard of Jolie Beauty they are an online beauty and skincare brand create by a group of highly experienced makeup artists. Their brand prides themselves on being cruelty free and vegan.

I was first introduced to Jolie Beauty by a friend who swore by their products, so I decided to try them myself – and I’m so glad I did!

The UniGlow Elixir is packed with vitamin E and 24 karat gold flakes. If like me you have dry skin this facial oil is a life saver, it is amazingly hydrating, after using the Elixir as a moisturiser once in the morning and once at night after cleansing for 1 week my dry skin has almost cleared!

As well as using UniGlow as a moisturiser I also use it as part of my makeup routine when applying my foundation and it leaves my skin looking flawless!

There are two ways you can use UniGlow Skin Perfecting Elixir when applying foundation. Firstly, you can mix 1-3 drops into your foundation before applying or you can add 1-2 drops onto a damp beauty blender before blending your foundation. Either way you choose will leave your skin looking smooth and glowing.

And let’s not forget to talk about the packaging for this product, I love the black and gold colour combination it really makes the item stand out from the crowd. And the materials used for both the bottle and the dropper are incredibly durable.

You can buy UniGlow directly from the Jolie Beauty website Jolie-beauty.co.uk. I highly recommend checking out their other items and why not follow them on social media to keep up to date with new products Jolie Beauty has to offer. You can find their links below.

Beauty 101: How To Deep Clean Your Makeup Brushes

Cleaning your makeup brushes is the most boring part of a beauty routine – but it is also one of the most important! If you could see all of the germs and bacteria on your brushes you would never let them near your face. Using dirty makeup brushes can cause a number of skin issues such as acne, blemishes and skin reactions. To avoid these issues this is how you deep clean your makeup brushes.

  1. Wet

Ensuring brushes are faced downwards, submerge the bristles of your brushes in warm water.

2. Cleanse

Using non-alcohol based cleanser and a cleaning glove, lather the bristles and swirl on the glove for a deeper clean.

3. Rinse

Wash brushes off until the water runs clear and squeeze out any excess water to prevent the bristles from fraying.

4. Dry

Allow brushes to air dry on a flat surface ensuring the bristles are hanging over the sink to dry quickly and easily.

If like me you just don’t seem to tan at all in the natural sunlight, fake tan is your best friend! But fake tanning also comes with it’s difficulties, trying to get the perfect shade, have a smooth, natural look and avoid streaks. Here are 10 tips to help you get the perfect self tan.

  1. Exfoliate thoroughly, removing dead skin give a smooth surface to apply tan prevent streaks and patches.
  2. Do not use moisturiser or deodorant the day you tan, this can cause discolouration.
  3. Before tanning take a cold shower to close your pores and prevent them from getting blocked.
  4. Use aloe Vera on your hands, elbows, knees and feet – these are places that often change colour.
  5. Make sure you use a mitt, you don’t want tanned nails or palms.
  6. Bend your fingers into a claw to get an even tan on your knuckles.
  7. Attach a tanning mitt to a back brush for easy reach.
  8. Apply the tanner to the centre of the mitt and fold the mitt in half for even application.
  9. Start slowly, if your tan isn’t dark enough you can apply another layer rather than struggling to remove tan if you have over applied.
  10. Exfoliate your palms after tanning to remove excess tan.

images

Getting the perfect lip look can be a hard job if you aren’t a professional, there’s so much to think about, colour, texture, formula, blending – the list is endless! Here I have wrote a list of the 10 commandments for you to get the perfect lip look!

  1. Exfoliate with a sugar lip scrub to get rid of dry flaky skin,
  2. Keep your lips hydrated, drink plenty of water and use lip balm morning, night and just before applying lipstick.
  3. Find the nest shade for your skin tone – the general rule is peachy colours for light skin, deep reds for dark skin and for a medium skin tone almost any colour will suit you!
  4. If you’re going for a bold lip colour keep the rest of your makeup minimal.
  5. Use a primer before application for longer lasting lipstick.
  6. Use a lip liner for a more defined look and to make your lips look plumper.
  7. If you’re looking for the perfect nude – easy! Match your lip colour to the colour of your nipple. (The may be a little hard  to do in the middle of a store.)
  8. Slightly smudge around the edges for a fuller look
  9. Start in the centre of your lips and work outwards to avoid errors.
  10. Apply a layer of lipstick, blot with a tissue and apply another layer for longer lasting lipstick.
