5 BEAUTY BASED ONLINE RETAILERS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT (BLOGMAS – DAY TWENTY)

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the beauty industry is saturated. Which is great for the obsessed such as I but can be a tad overwhelming when it comes to shopping for a loved one or stocking up on essentials (treats!). I

’ve compiled a list of some of my favourite retailers that are the *chef’s kiss* of all things beauty.

Beauty Bay

If heart is what you’re after then Beauty Bay is the one for you. Boasting trending brands and products as well as on point tutorials and no holds barred information on EVERYTHING you could possibly want to know (yep, even the sexy stuff), BB is a power house not to be reckoned with.

How could I forget By Beauty Bay! That’s enough reason all in itself!

BEAUTY BAY’s mantra is to share our beauty obsessions with the world. Founded by two of life’s rebels who had no formal training, just a tonne of passion, we started out as a fragrance retailer and quickly discovered a whole universe of beauty just waiting to be unleashed.

We source the hard-to-find brands and products you can’t find elsewhere in order to bring our customers the best, first.

Just My Look

Hi! We’re Justmylook, one of the UK’s fastest growing beauty retailers. Since launching in early 2015, we have rapidly grown and now proudly present a range of over 7,000 products from 300+ prestige brands, including industry icons such as ghd to cult brands like The Ordinary.

justmylook.com

A comprehensive collection of big name brands to satisfy even the biggest hoarder. Covering everything from skincare to beauty basics and tools to luxury brands, you’re set with Just My Look and their reliable service which guarantees satisfaction.

Cult Beauty

Cult Beauty to me just screams guilty pleasure, decadence and sleek glamour. With a huge selection of both luxury and affordable brands it’s no wonder the retailer lives up to its name.

Is your bathroom brimming with legions of barely-used lotions and potions that neither delight nor deliver? Are you bewildered by the marketing hyperbole (and unpronounceable ingredients) you come across while browsing never-ending beauty aisles?

Cult Beauty was born when two skin care obsessives grew frustrated by the all-too-often condescending messaging (and underwhelming offerings) they came across throughout the beauty industry. Having invested in innumerable ineffective creams and disappointing serums, Jess and Lex both vowed to boycott bathroom cabinets full of hollow promises (and wasted pounds).

MY AM-PM SKINCARE ROUTINE WITH BEAUTY BAY (BLOGMAS – DAY SEVEN)

Post contains affiliate links.

I’ve spoken about my love for Beauty Bay and their By Beauty Bay range before and I’m sure there is really no doubt that I adore just about everything they do.

Winter is in full swing right now and I don’t know about you guys but boy is my skin suffering! I’m both oily and blemish prone as well as living on very little sleep so I really could use all the help I can get!

I’ve cultivated a routine using solely By Beauty Bay products and it seems to be working a treat so thought I’d share it with you all in the hopes it’ll help someone else too!

AM…

As much as I wish I could just roll out of bed looking like a glowing Greek Goddess alas that is just not the hand I was dealt.

This 4 step/5 product morning routine is my fool proof formula to leaving the house feeling and looking refreshed.

Mix the Day One Moisturiser together with SkinHit Protecting Serum (or any SkinHit serum for that matter!) for a customised formula to suit your specific needs.

Acid Trip Exfoliating Toner

£7

Head this way for perfect skin with the Acid Trip Exfoliating Toner with AHA and PHA from the Skincare By BEAUTY BAY range. This exfoliating toner combines multiple forms of acid-based exfoliants, which target different layers of the skin. A blend of AHAs, such as glycolic and lactic acid work to refine, brighten, and even skin tone, whilst PHA (gluconolactone) helps to promote softer and smoother skin. Pores will be cleared and cellular turnover will be increased, which all results in a decongested, smoother, and brighter looking complexion.

SkinHit Hyperpigmentation Serum

£6.50

Put your best face forward with the By BEAUTY BAY SkinHit Hyperpigmentation Serum with Tranexamic Acid and Alpha Arbutin. Enriched with brightening tranexamic acid plus alpha arbutin to even out skin tone, this brightening serum is a name to know for reducing the appearance of pigmentation, dark spots, scarring and dullness.

Day One Moisturiser

£6.50

This is your new skincare go-to. The Day One Moisturiser with Ginseng and Squalane from the Skincare By BEAUTY BAY range is a lightweight gel-cream moisturiser that helps to protect and hydrate the skin. Enriched with Indian ginseng to shield against screen-emitted light and olive squalane which helps to hydrate the skin. The moisturising and skin conditioning actives make this moisturiser a great makeup primer to lock your look in place all day long.

beautybay.com

SkinHit Protecting Serum

£6

Protect your skin from whatever daily life throws at you with the SkinHit Protecting Serum with Anti-Pollution and Blue Light Actives from Skincare By BEAUTY BAY. Rich in antioxidants, this is the serum you need to shield your skin from environmental nasties that can lead to dullness and upset complexions. Formulated with an anti-pollution active that helps to protect the skin from external aggressors and free radicals, as well as a blue light active that shields your skin from screen-emitted light, whilst also helping to brighten and restore radiance. This is the ultimate everyday serum for your skin.

beautybay.com

PM…

As night rolls round once again and all you want to do is jump into bed it’s important to make sure your skin gets what it needs.

Assuming you’ve already taken off your make up (for which I recommend the Butter Cup Cleansing Balm) then you can jump right into this quick PM routine before you get some well deserved rest.

Super Jelly Cleansing Gel

£6.50

Refresh your skin with the Super Jelly Cleansing Gel with Prebiotic and Avocado from the Skincare By BEAUTY BAY range. This non-foaming, non-stripping cleansing gel supports balanced and healthy-looking skin that feels fresh, cleansed, and revitalised. Formulated with prebiotics, a hero skincare ingredient that helps to support the skin’s barrier, as well as avocado oil which helps to gently cleanse and moisturise the skin. Leave your skin feeling clean but comfortable.

Make It Rain Face Mist

£5

Quench your skin’s thirst with the Make It Rain Face Mist with Mineral and Super Berry Blend from the Skincare By BEAUTY BAY range. This hydrating face mist rains down onto skin to energise and refresh the complexion. This mist has been formulated with a blend of minerals that hydrate and energise the skin, and a trio of nourishing Australian berries which encourage a radiant and healthy-looking glow. Use before makeup, after makeup, or as a refreshing top-up during the day to give your skin a refresh.

CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR DISNEY LOVERS (BLOGMAS – DAY TWO)

If you’re anything like me then Disney is something you will have clung to like a comfort blanket made of nostalgia since childhood (and show no sign of letting it go anytime soon).

As my passion for the beauty industry has grown one of my favourite things to do is discover collaborations that really light a fire within me and it just so happens that they are usually of the Disney variety.

So if this sounds like someone you know (or even just yourself, I won’t judge!) then stick around because I’m about to make your Christmas shopping a whole lot easier!

Beauty Bay

A collaboration with a twist if ever there was one. This modern take on some of my favourite classic Disney movies has me more excited than ever to pass on my passion to a younger generation.

Created in collaboration with Disney Colour, our new makeup collection is here to help you bring the classic Disney films to life. The Disney Colour and BEAUTY BAY collection has been inspired by the original colours from some of the most iconic Disney films, allowing you to create makeup looks that will help you bring your favourite scenes into your reality.

beautybay.com

With a multitude of products to choose from (but why choose when you can have them all?) it’s hard to pick a favourite.

Spectrum Collections

Spectrum Collections are just as famous for their stunning Disney collaborations as they are for creating innovative yet stylish brushes and I’m so here for it.

The spectrum sisters (Sophie & Hannah) are constantly surprising us with their dreamy visions of all things Disney and I find myself constantly on the edge of my seat looking forward to their next drop.

I Heart Revolution

Last year I Heart Revolution released their very first Disney Princess Collection (with the spotlight on Cinderella, Belle and Tiana) and since there have gone from strength to strength with an ever expanding line of magical products for for royalty.

From eyeshadow and lip toppers to highlighters and lashes this collaboration really does have that something special. It’ll have you digging out your favourite Disney movies in no time.

Mad Beauty

Mad Beauty are a relatively new obsession for me but that doesn’t make them any less magical!

The brand are famous for their huge array of collaborative products based on your favourite movies and tv series (and you all know how I feel about Friends).

Their Disney lines are unique in the sense that our favourite villains get just as much of a look in. They also boast incredible collections of Star Wars products too so there really is something for everyone.

Morphe

Morphie can be a bit hit and miss for me but if there’s one thing they do right it’s capturing the aesthetic of a collaboration perfectly.

The Mickey and friends collection is artsy bold and super cute. A must have for any Disney fan.

Urban Decay

Urban decay have been my guilty pleasure ever since I started on my make up journey roughly 10 years ago now. They were the first higher rent brand I ever spent money on and just hold a really special place in my heart.

If you know anything about me then you’ll know I am a Marvel fanatic and the new Eternals collaboration just screams decadence at me.

It’s pricey but it damn sure looks luxurious.

Catrice Cosmetics

Catrice are the type of friend you just know you can rely on to release products that are going to get the job done. Their new Disney collection has just hit the nail on the head with its cute aesthetic spot on shade times.

I guess objectively it might be a little bit on the childish side but if grown-up vibes of what you want I think you’re reading the wrong blog.

Wet Brush

I don’t know how many hairbrushes are too many hairbrushes but to be honest I don’t want to know the answer.

Wet brush have fast become my favourite every day hair tool brand and I pretty much have one of their brushes in every room in my house at this point.

I love the fact they Disney releases all have a completely different feel from a poor part aesthetic to cottage core fairytale dream vibes.

To be honest I just think it justifies having as many as I do.

Ciaté

When I’m having a really rough day I try and channel Edna Mode and to be honest that usually does the trick. She doesn’t suffer fools and neither should you.

This collection is colourful vibrant and just the thing to pick you up on these dreary and dark winter days. A pop of colour in the waterline does wonders for the soul.

Essence Cosmetics

Last but not least we have my old faithful Essence Cosmetics and their Disney Princess Collection.

Yes it’s simple and just a bit basic but to be honest if you want something that screams Disney without a luxury pricetag then you’re headed in the right direction.

He also can’t deny Essence products are just a bit bloody brilliant. Like have you tried their mascara?!

I hope I’ve managed to fill your Disney gift quota for today and you managed to find something special. Let me know if you pick anything up or if you find some Disney releases of your own.

5 FESTIVE RED LIPSTICKS FOR UNDER £10 (BLOGMAS – DAY ONE)

I’m a big believer in the power of a good red lipstick (and if you’re a long time reader or follow me over on Instagram you’ll have heard me say words to that effect many times).

The festive season is my favourite time of year when it comes to the beauty industry because it’s just so extra! Red lips and sparkly eyes everywhere and I’m living for it.

So with that in mind (as well as the ever expanding list of people I have to buy for!) I thought now would be a good time to recommend some of my favourite red lipstick for when you’re on a budget (or like me believe that quality does not always have to cost the Earth).

arttitudecosmetics.com

They’re just so lush.

5 BUDGET BUYS I’D HAPPILY SPEND BIG BUCKS ON (BLOGTOBER – DAY TWENTY-THREE)

I’m (mostly) about beauty on a budget. Adulting is expensive and I don’t have the cash to splash about on pricey brands so much anymore and I know that’s a common theme really.

Do you know what really makes my day though?

Finding drugstore priced products that deserve to be praised just as much as their luxury counterparts.

Below I’ve put together a little list of my everyday favs, let me know if you’ve tried any!

Carter Beauty

Word of Mouth Lipsticks

€6.95

I love to support indie brands so now seems like the perfect opportunity to talk about CB. Headed by the ultimate beauty babe Marissa Carter it’s one not to miss. The Word of Mouth lipsticks are creamy, ultra pigmented and long lasting. What more could you want?

P.S. my favourite shade is Bey!

Physicians Formula

Butter Believe It Foundation + Concealer

£13.99

Physicians Formula Butter Believe It
Foundation + Concealer £13.99

Imagine chilling beside the pool, drink in your hand just living your best life. THATS exactly the kind of vibe PF is giving me.

Hayley over at Just My Look told me that I would love the foundation in particular. Do you know what? She were so right! It has the most beautiful finish and allows for layering your products so perfectly.

Would 100% recommend to absolutely everyone. It’s an incredible versatile base for use all year round.

Unicorn Cosmetics

Bear Brows Extreme Lifting Balm

£7.99

Unicorn Cosmetics Bear Brows
Extreme Lifting Balm £7.99

I really am still stunned by just how incredible this product is. For someone with brows that continue to piss me right off on a daily basis please take it from me when I say you need this!

It’s a one shade fits all type of deal (doesn’t discriminate and that’s a vibe I can absolutely fall in love with!) as well as being super long lasting and flattering as hell.

Revolution Haircare

Salicylic Acid Clarifying Scalp Serum

£8

Revolution Haircare Salicylic Acid Clarifying Scalp Serum £8

I’m slowly training my hair and scalp to go longer in between washes without feeling lank/greasy and whilst it’s a process I can see the difference already. I’m now getting a whole extra day of fresh, luscious hair and I am so living for it.

This beauty shows instant results with its squeaky clean fresh finish and I wouldn’t be without it now.

By Beauty Bay

Butter Cup Cleansing Balm

£8

By Beauty Bay Butter Cup Cleansing Balm £8

Balms have never appealed to me (no idea why, I’m just weird like that sometimes!) but this baby has completely changed my mindset.

Literally the best makeup remover I have ever tried. It’s incredible efficient as well as kind and feels like a luxury experience every single time.

Anything catch your eye?

If you follow me over on Instagram (HERE) then you’ll know I’m a bit of a palette hoarder…

I’ve rounded up my fav autumn/winter feels palette so if you’re struggling to narrow down your shopping basket this might give you a nudge in the right direction!

Unicorn Cosmetics Wicked Palette

Celebrating spooky season all year round with this beaut! The grungy colour story of the Unicorn Cosmetics Wicked Palette still has me hooked all these months later.

Full of vampy glam goodness that’ll see you through a multitude of situations. I really can’t see it getting old. It’s also currently on sale for £24.99!

You can use code ‘THEBEAUTYBOO’ at checkout to save some £££.

Nabla Dreamy 2 Palette

Somehow the Nabla Dreamy 2 Palette manages to be both delicate AND bold, something I’m sure we could all do with more of in our lives!

The luxury finish of these rich shadows 100% justifies the £32.50 price tag, plus the packaging is lush and I’m not sure what else you can ask for really?

Spectrum Collections Pantherine Palette

The warm tones of the Pantherine Palette give off utter autumnal dream vibes but also beautiful sunset feels so you’re pretty much covered all year round for £30!

The Spectrum Collections Pantherine Palette is a warm toned delight with (in my opinion) the perfect mix of matte and metallic shades. It’s also super pigmented and blends like a dream.

Lois Cosmetics Rose Metal Palette

The dreamy colour story of the Rose Metal Palette will have you wishing every night was date night. Whilst definitely neutral for the most part it’s rosey tones really add that something special into the mix. Absolutely packed with pigment and the quality is second to none.

Rose Metal is there to soothe the most romantic of souls and for £19.99 will leave you feeling like ever day is Valentine’s Day.

By Beauty Bay Wilderness Palette

A colour story of two halves if ever there was one. Each element of the palette works so beautifully together for a truly unique experience but you really do feel like you’re getting an extra bang for your buck with so much choice and versatility.

This vegan & cruelty free beauty is just so magical with its pigmented mattes and stunning shimmers (or a cheeky duochrome with shade ‘Ray’ which really lifts the whole palette to another level).

The By Beauty Bay Wilderness Palette is an all year round £15 bargain triumph.
