The 'pick me ups' edit

We all have those days when we look as awful as we feel. Whether its a bad hair day or your make up just isn't doing the job - We get those days. Here are a few products I like to turn to when nothing is going right. Welcome to 'The Pick Me Ups' edit. The products that help to pick you up off the floor...

NYX Above & Beyond Full Coverage Concealer

Its hard to find a concealer that will fully cover all the little blips on your skin. And those that are full coverage tend to sit a little on the dry side. But NYX have managed to create a concealer that gives you high coverage and also provide you with a formula that is light weight, moisturising and as far away from cakey as a concealer can go. It does a good job. This concealer is also brightens up your complexion well, so if your looking to really get a few highlights onto your face, this will do a great job. 

Yves Rocher Youthful Glow Foundation

I have talked about this one on my blog before, but if I feel like crap and don't want to cake my face in make up - This is the foundation I tend to go for. Its lightweight, moisturising and adds the most unbelievable glowing finish to your skin. It makes your skin look so radiant. It does not have the highest coverage, but it does a decent job at evening out the skins tone. Also if you have dry patches, this is a miracle in a bottle. It sweeps right over them making flakey skin look invisible. Its just amazing!

Sheer Cover Lengthening Mascara

This mascara is really good for those days where you want to attract attention. This is a feel good product. It will leave your lashes looking incredible. Get ready to drop your jaws ladies, the results are amazing. Its a fibre mascara that has a two part process. You sandwich the fibres in between two coats of mascara to pull of the most dramatic looking lashes you have ever worn. It brings volume and length to a whole other level. So if your in the mood for a life changing mascara, try this one out. 

Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream in 'Party Pink'

Its on the blog. Again. But the colour is so good for brightening up a dull complexion. If your having one of your grey days, a coral lipstick will throw some energy into your face. This snazzy number in particular is really good at giving you appearance a good boost. So if your feeling drab, pick up this perky colour and watch out for the looks to swing your way. Its bright and bold but it is a stunning shade to wear. Its a perky product. 

Korres Lip Butter in 'Wild Rose'

If your a girl who likes light, moisturising lip products with a touch of colour then you will love this. Whilst it only gives you a very slight touch of colour, it makes those lips stand out. Its easy to maintain and good for the days where you want minimal effort. A slight wash of this product will automatically brighten up your appearance. It just shows you do not need to go all out to perk up your complexion. This one products does the job very well.
