The 2 Best concealers~blogmas #6

9 Dec 2014

  Hello everyone todays post I thought I would talk about concealers. I've r previously written a blog post about the collection lasting perfection concealer which you can see here and thought I would also talk to you all about the Maybelline fit me! For me I really like them both and I have found it really hard to choose my favourite as they both have their pros n cons. I feel like the collection one has a much fuller coverage and is great for spots, but I think the Maybelline is much better for under the eyes as its less cakey and a lot more moisturising. Both are around the £5 mark which is a great price for the quality. After trying both I think the collection one is best for covering spots and the Maybelline one for under the eyes. All in all both are amazing and I would highly recommend them.



What is your favourite concealer?


 

Gingerbread Recipie~Blogmas #5

7 Dec 2014

 
Hello everyone, today I decided to make some Christmas gingerbread biscuits, so I thought I would take a few photos and share with you how I did it. I actually used Zoella's recipe for gingerbread which she did a video on last Christmas and adapted it a little.
 
You will need
75g light brown soft sugar
2 heaped tablespoons golden syrup
1 tablespoon of water
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
75g butter
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
225g plain flour- add more if needed
icing tubes-any colour
 

 1~ add the sugar to a saucepan on low heat.
2~ Add the golden syrup (wet the spoon with cold water before so that the syrup comes off well).
 3~ add the cinnamon and ginger.

 4~ add the butter and stir thoroughly so it doesn't burn.
 5~ add the baking powder and sifted flour and take off the heat.

 6~ roll out with a rolling pin and don't forget to sprinkle the bench with flour so it doesn't stick.
 7~ put the biscuits onto the a greased baking tray and bake for 8-10 minutes.


 8~now for the icing! you can do what ever you like and be as creative as possible!
 9~ the final product!
 
If you decide to bake these gingerbread biscuits be sure to tag me in any photos on instagram!Have a lovely week!
