ok so this is why i was nervous of doing YouTube...stupid nasty comments!! now im probably being over sensitive but i have had nothing but nice comments and support from people on YouTube (big thanks) and today i log in and find a comment from a young girl telling me "you tan way too much" now come on i know i shouldn't take it to heart but heres why i do::::
*i wasn't wearing fake tan...that is my natural skin colouring...therefore isn't this a bit racist..after all she is commenting on my skin colour!
*the girl that said this is mixed race too so surely she should know how hurtful comments like that can be!1
I'm sorry but i guess it struck a chord with me as my dad was adopted for being mixed race as a child..harsh but true...i just wish people would engage their brain before saying stupid things!!
i don't mind constructive criticism but this is just mean!!
sorry guys i know I'm being super sensitive but its really made me question whether i want to continue doing vids, as i have zilch confidence and this dont make me feel much better..i take things to heart and i care what people think wayyyyyyyy too much !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
id never dream of commenting along the lines of woah your too pale or woah your too black...people should remember if you haven't got anything nice to say don't say it at all!!!

So i think I've mentioned before that i work in a clarins salon??!! Now I'll admit I'm not a huge fan of clarins as i find it more of an older ladies product as it tends to be aimed at that age! Also I'm fickle and like bling packaging...and trust me clarins is far from bling!!! However there are a few products that i do rate, and lucky me...my boss wanted rid of some excess testers...and i was first in line!!! So i picked up the few things i liked and here they are:
*Hydra quench lotion...I've used the cream version and love it so a lotion would be fab for under makeup!
*Hydra quench cooling cream gel...i used this anyways as a night cream so bonus..free!!!
*Sun cream in factor 10 and 6, this and elemis are the only sun creams i use as i get heat rash with others!
*Ultra matte lotion...for oily times :s
*Eyeliner pencils: brown, violet, khaki..these all have a lush shimmer in them..had my eye on these for a while :)
*Liquid eyeliners in plum..this is fab, thin brush and does not budge as you can see in pic..i rubbed and rubbed!
*Instant light eye base...i haven't tried urban decay primer but this looks similar and works well! *Lipgloss in number 6 and summer fever number 2....Cheryl Cole has these two..the rep told me..sold hehe!!
*Lippys..720-melon and lip quench slim lippy in number 17..these shades are lush on top of myth by mac
Hope you enjoy my sweets!! I may do a vid with swatches! xx
so I've done another YouTube vid, this time I've done an actual make up tutorial..its very easy and natural but i thought it would be a good way to start!! please check it out if you get time and leave any comments if you have any suggestions on improving my vids etc!!!! also i will be doing a post before bedtime as i got some clarins goodies today..just need to get my bum in gear and take pics lol xxxx

*Primark ndies hehe!!
*River island purse
*Enzo millano curlers....saw a lot of youtubers usin these look fab!!
*Cute river island cupcake car smelly!
*earrings from accessorize...very bollywood i heart big bling!!
*YSL lippie in 1 and 2
*MAC 224 BRUSH
*MAC bare study paint pot
*After face and neck i move onto chest...very simple, just mix 3 pumps tan with equal cream and rub onto chest boobs and tummy, try and work the tan out to your arm pits as this will be one less thing to think about when doing arms! You may need more or less tan depending on your size and how much you want to tan...e.g i mainly just do areas that will be seen such as arms chest and legs and leave tummy and back!
*Next i do legs...lots of tan needed normally i start on the calf's and use 3 pumps and equal cream. i place each hand on sides of calf so it looks like I'm holding my leg and then used circular motions to work in...do not tan knee yet!!! work down to ankle, by this time you should have very little tan left on hands, i then swoop down with a fanned hand and rub remaining tan into feet. Now for the knee get half a pump of tan and double the cream and just swoop over the knee and behind work upwards to the thigh. Repeat thigh as you did the calf, thighs are easy!!
Ok so i have worked my way through my new CHI products and here's what i think:
Infra texture: I have sprayed this into both wet and dry hair and yep its ok!! mainly makes the hair smell good, does and texture and movement to your style without being sticky or heavy! Also the can is super glittery...bonus!
Silk infusion: Wish id found this product sooner...their reviews were spot on! I applied it after straightening my hair and it really feels as smooth as silk!!!
Flex and hold hairspray: Now this i am not a fan of, very crispy and sticky feel not nice...i can just about bear to use it for backcombing just to use it up.
Nourish intense mask: Love this, i applied this to washed hair that i towel dried to get most of the water off my hair. i worked in a salon when i was younger and found that conditioner was ten times more effective when hair was dried off a bit, this is due to the water diluting the mask or conditioner. so on damp hair i worked a walnut sized blob into the ends and waited 5 mins....again hair was like silk fab!
Silk bath/shampoo: Loved this too, although it is definitely more of a "treatment" than a shampoo as it tends to leave hair a little flat due to how nourishing it is. I stupidly washed my hair and used the CHI mask and then curled my hair...great until it dropped out an hour later. so beware do not use this before curling it makes the hair hard to work with!
All in all i am very impressed with CHI as a range, its fab to use now and again as a hair treat! xx
