Glasses Makeup Tutorial ft. Firmoo – Buy one and get one for FREE

Hi everyone, 

How are you all doing? Here is a Glasses makeup look. Lots of you may be starting school soon or have already started. And some of you wear glasses on daily basis or like me have to wear your glasses for computers/long distances/driving.

Here is a simple makeup look which will still make your eyes pop even though they are behind a pair of glasses. This is also in collaboration with Firmoo.

Firmoo is a website that sells a variety of both vision glasses and sun glasses.
If you would like your own prescription glasses you can order them off this website. You can either enter the details of your prescribed lenses or photocopy your prescription and then let Firmoo do the rest. I feel that this website is a better option from ordering a pair of sight glasses locally. I find that you save money and the glasses are still of good quality!

The glasses I ordered – you can get them right here –https://www.firmoo.com/eyeglasses-p-4848.html

They ship fast and you get a pocket for free! I think it really is worth it. The customer care service is amazing, therefore if you require any help simply email them and they will reply immediately!!

I also bought two pairs for me mum and I used the Buy one and get one free offer so I only paid for one then!
Basically you can get the Buy one pair and get one pair for FREE from http://bit.ly/bogofirmooglasses By clicking on this link, you can get your very own coupon code and with this code you can get two pairs from Firmoo for the price of one.
Therefore, you are entitled to one pair of glasses for FREE! This includes the frame and standard lenses.

MUA 15 Shade Palette – Fire Vixen – one of my new products – I love this palette, I think the shade selection is perfect! The shadows are slightly powder-y but I don’t hate that about this palette.

IMG_0463

MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter – peach Diamond applied with Ebay Highlighter brush – a new product and I loved it. It isn’t a very pigmented highlight even though when you swatch it on your hands it appears to be. But when applied to my cheek bone it doesn’t transfer that much. But I love the slight sheen that it gives me, it is just enough for me. It is a little chalky but it doesn’t appear like that on the skin, so don’t be alarmed that when you swatch it on your hands it will be appear to be so but it isn’t!

Lipsticks mentioned –

IMG_0473
Shade 4 – you can buy this product right here – https://www.muastore.co.uk/new/mualuxe-velvet-matte-lipstick – retails for £3

Shade 12 – you can buy this product right here – https://www.muastore.co.uk/new/mualuxe-velvet-matte-lipstick – retails for £3
IMG_0478
Shade 12 – bottom pink

MUA Luxe Velvet Matte Lipsticks – Shade 4 & 12 – I love this formula of these lipsticks. The formula feels so nice on my lips, not drying at all. But I do NOT like the bullet these lipsticks come with. The application because of these bullets makes it so hard to do a perfect application of these lipsticks. But apart from that, I love these lipsticks. Even the packaging is pretty sleek. 

IMG_0466
Perseus – you can buy this product right here – https://www.muastore.co.uk/mua-luxe-velvet-matte-metallic-lip-lacquer-perseus – retails for £3
IMG_0468
Perseus

MUA Velvet Matte Metallic Lip Lacquer – Perseus – I don’t usually like metallic lipsticks and don’t like buying any. But I thought I would give this a shot, and I really liked it. It isn’t patchy and not drying either. I love how it applied and it is a pretty metallic pink shade! 

 

I used the MUA Velvet Matte Lipstick in shade number 4 for this tutorial. 

Thank you so much for reading. This blog post had a little bit of everything, a review, a haul and testing out new products!!

Have you tried out any of these products? If so, comment down below! What about the Firmoo glasses, have you ever tried ordering from this website? 

Until next time,

My Summer Essentials

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all having a lovely SUNDAY! Many of you are probably celebrating today with your families and your dad’s. I know I am, we are soon going to have a good home cooked lunch.

Yesterday I uploaded a new video on my Summer Essentials. This was a collaboration with Ashley Stoyko, make sure you can visit her channel. And we decided of putting together our Summer Essentials. We decided on choosing 5 but we couldn’t stick with that and we chose more. I based my Essentials around 7 different items.

#1 – BB Creams

I love applying BB Creams in Summer. I can also create a makeup look with only my BB Cream and ignoring the foundation step. In summer putting on foundation during the day is a little bit stressful especially on our Maltese Islands unless you set it will and have a good setting spray (which I will mention in my next essential).

My favourite BB Cream is the Rimmel 9 in 1 BB Cream. I have a review all about this you can visit it right here.

#2 – Makeup Setting Sprays

We all need this in our collection especially during summer. In winter I tend to forget setting my makeup with one of these but in Summer if I forget it, I regret it!

My favourite setting sprays are – the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray, the Avon Mark Setting Spray and the Gerard Cosmetics Slay All Day Setting Spray in the Peach scent.

#3 – Crop Tops 

I live in crop tops during the summer. I mostly buy them from H&M and they just make a summer outfit pop! I love wearing them with high waister shorts and sandals.

#4 – Hats

The two hats I own are from H&M and Primark. I love running around with them, doing my daily errands. A hat is your best friend in summer .. that and sunglasses and sunscreen – we cannot forget those!

#5 – Bikinis

I don’t go swimming much and I prefer going to a pool rather than the sea. The irony is Malta is known for its sunny beaches .. so yeah. But of course I still go, sometimes but I go. And I bought these 2 bikinis I showed on my video last summer from ebay and those are the ones I am using this year!

#6 – Lip Stains 

I love matte lips but in Summer I prefer lip stains. They are so lightweight on the lips and leave your lips moisturised. They last all day and there’s no way you will need to reapply these. I love using the MUA Inked Lip Stain – I love their formula and they are so soft on the lips.

#7 – Summer reads 

I love lounging on the beach or the pool with a book. I think I prefer reading a book rather than going for a swim and getting my hair all tangled up either with sea salt water or chlorine!

I have plenty other summer essentials but I would say that these are my basics!

What are your summer essentials? 

I hope you enjoyed reading my blog post, thank you so much for doing so!

Happy Sunday!

Love Kezia

MUA New Velvet Lip Lacquer Shades – Review & Swatches!!

Hi everyone, 

I am so excited to share with you all today’s video! As you know I am a big fan of MUA – Makeup Academy.

They sell such good quality products, a variety of products and they are all so inexpensive!

Today’s video is all about 5 new shades from their Velvet Lip Lacquer range that they had released last Autumn.

The Velvet Lip Lacquer range include a variety of products. I also recently purchased two more which aren’t in this video. But maybe I could do a haul of what other new products I purchased from them recently!

11.jpg

The formula of these lipsticks dries to a complete matte look and doesn’t have a strong scent. They however, do not last that long although this varies with colours. Another distinction is that some colours  – mostly darker ones – are extremely patchy so you have to be careful on how you apply them.

Also, it was my first time trying a blue lipstick and I have mixed feelings about it! It also took the longest to dry as the others dried quickly.

The shades are – 

Posie – A cute light nude brown shade

img_5908

Hustle – A dark pink/red shade

23.jpeg

Firecracker – A fun pinky red

2342

Splash – A not too dark or not too light blue – just in between – shade

fsg

Flair – A vampy red

Have you ever tried this range? What’s your favourite shade?

One year on Youtube & NEW MUA Lipstick shades!!

Hi everyone,

Screen Shot 2016-09-20 at 1.59.42 PM.png

So yes, I have officially been running my channel – KezziesCorner (http://www.youtube.com/KezziesCorner) for an entire YEAR!

I actually see this as an accomplishment because I actually stuck to it. And I have enjoyed the entire process – recording the videos, editing them, creating the thumbnails and writing a description for every one of them.

Then finally uploading it and sharing it with all of you!

I have also met new, creative and amazing people. Got to do some fun collaborations and everyday I seem to have made a new friend.

I enjoy watching other people’s videos as I learnt how to apply makeup just from youtube. You learn everyday.

In one year I have gained 1640 subscribers – and for that I wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who has subscribed to my channel!!

And also for those who have followed me on my social media – Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, Snapchat (kezikezi), Facebook and my blog too !!

I really am so happy with how my Youtube Channel developed, even with this blog!

I am very pleased and hope that I will keep doing this and most importantly continue to enjoy doing it.

I started my youtube channel as I am currently gaining work experience hours to start my masters in Clinical/Neuropsychology. Unfortunately, I had applied for a masters in Italy to start this September but did not get chosen.

So I needed something to help keep me distracted from thinking negatively.

Youtube actually helped brighten my mood, because once I was rejected I just wanted to give up on everything! But having youtube and of course the support of family and loved ones I learnt that giving up is not the road to take. Yes I am still learning not to take everything so negative as this one bad thing but to move from it and learn.

Youtube and my blog is sort of a therapeutic technique that keeps my head from thinking of the unknown. The unknown meaning the FUTURE.

I do not know what I shall be doing next year. So having something like this to do helps uplift my spirits and hopefully will motivate me in applying once again for the masters.

So yeah … Thank you for subscribing/following my Youtube Channel/Blog!! 

I took a trip down memory lane and stayed watching my first video that I posted on my channel. I think I did improve, I have learnt so much from just watching my friends’ videos on how to edit and use different techniques.

But yeah if you haven’t watched my video – this was the one –

And since this was a MUA related video I wanted to share with you some Good news !! MUA is releasing new shades from their Velvet Lip Lacquer line TOMORROW!! So head over to http://www.muastore.co.uk if you want to check them out !! Tomorrow of course!!

Screen Shot 2016-09-20 at 1.51.01 PM.png

Coincidently tomorrow the video showing you guys their recent released products that I had written a post (click here to view) about is finally going to come out tomorrow.

I actually had recorded this a couple of weeks ago but because I wanted to release other videos this got pushed behind! So tomorrow is the ideal time because tomorrow 5 more shades seem to be coming out and I need to get my hands on them!!

So anyways I best be going!

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE !! 

Love 

Kezia xoxo

August 2016 Favourites

Hi everyone, 

Hope you are all having a lovely week!

Today’s video that was uploaded is about my August Favourites of 2016.

I tried to include a variety of items that I use on a daily basis. And in the end I also included a favourite book of mine that I read this past month and 2 TV shows that I am hooked on watching!!

Here is my video – 

The products mentioned in this video:

Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends Shampoo
Herbal Essences Ignite My Colour Conditioner

IMG_4339

I think the Shampoos and Conditioners from Herbal Essence are lovely products and leave your hair not only smelling like strawberries but also leaves your hair feeling smooth and healthy.

Makeup Revolution Pro Base Blur Primer

IMG_4344

This is a good primer to start off your makeup. It is a good base and helps decrease those nasty pores from being seen. It may not hide them completely but it does decrease them.
L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24HR Foundation in Rose beige

IMG_4341

I have been loving this foundation this summer! It has been one of my favourites as it makes me believe that my face actually looks flawless! And that is saying a lot from me who has acne scares and pores galore!
ZOEVA Defined Buffer Brush N. 103

I loved applying my l’Oreal foundation with this brush. I think it blends out foundations really well especially if they are creamy and liquid-y!
Rimmel Clear Complexion Clarifying Powder in Transparent

IMG_4345

I have replaced my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder for this one! I think it is just a perfect, lightweight powder to set all your makeup.
Milani Illuminating Face Powder in Amber Nectar

IMG_4337

I love using this as my blush as it contains different shades that when blended together make a perfect natural blushed look.
MUA Mosaic Bronzer in Sunkissed Glow

IMG_4335

Again this has different browns all blended together which can give you that natural bronzed looking effect that we all crave during these hot summer months!
BH Cosmetics HD Brow Pencil in Blonde

IMG_4372

I absolutely love this brow pencil! It is by far the best out of all my eyebrow products in my collection. It just fills your brows in the most natural and perfect way ever. It is also a dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hill HD Brow Whiz!
BH Cosmetics, Illuminate by Ashley Tisdale Eyeshadow Palette in Night Goddess

IMG_4342IMG_4343

I have been using this palette all throughout these summer months and have been loving the palette. Even though this includes a blush, contour and highlight shade; they are not my favourite. However, the eyeshadow shades are super pigmented, easy to blend and are not too powder-y!
My Favourite Eyeshadow shades are Wild Child and Moon Light ❤ mixed together they are super sweet!
Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Curl Mascara

IMG_4347

This mascara besides coming from the brand called essence which is an animal cruelty free brand is an amazing product! The wand of the brush allows you to hit all your lashes from left to right! It is not clumpy and gives your lashes volume and length.
LIPS:

IMG_4350 (1)

IMG_4376

As you know I am an LIP LOVER!! So of course I could not just choose one lip shade ! Now I already did my favourite top ten lipsticks during the summer but I wanted to give 5 more a shot to star in my videos/blog posts!!

My favourite recently were: 

IMG_4357
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi – perfect nude!!

IMG_4365
Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip Color in Lumiere 2 – lovely dark mauve-y pink shade!

IMG_4367
MAC Brooke Candy Liquid Lipstick in Plumful – EBAY replica – lovely pink purple shade!

IMG_4366
Milani Amore Matte Lip Cream in Precious – gorgeous everyday pink shade ! It is also the shade that I am wearing in the video!

IMG_4354
MUA Vivid Intense Lipstick in Punch – stunning deep red toned shade!

Favourite Book –
