To kick off the Valentine's looks for this year on my Youtube Channel, my friend Hayley Coleman & I decided to do a Valentines Collaboration. Her doing the classic, romantic yet sexy, date-friendly Valentines makeup and I doing the anti-Valentines look which is all heavy liner and full on lipstick, not the most kissable look in the world! ha ha.
I know a lot of the anti-Valentines looks out there are full on theatrical & sometimes SFX based creations, but I still wanted mine to be very much wearable, just not your typical and expected Valentines look.
Nivea first released the Q10 range 17 long years ago and their scientists have been constantly developing and improving on the formula since then.
The formula revolves around an ingredient called Coenzyme Q10 which occurs naturally in our own skin, but like everything else, it's levels begins to decrease as we grow older. This Coenzyme Q10 works as a powerful antioxidant, fighting off all kinds of nasties that attack our skin's cells on a daily basis. This along with Hyaluronic Acid and Creatine, both of which also occur naturally in our skin (but also at lessening levels as we age), helps to lessen the appearance of existing fine lines and wrinkles while helping to prevent the formation of new ones.
The newest members to Zoeva's growing brush family are definitely more suited to the more serious makeup brush fanatics or collectors like myself or the pro makeup artist (also myself) as they are not really what I would consider necessary for beginners.
I however have been using them to death since receiving them and absolutely enjoying them, particularly the new Luxe face Focus.
I get all excited at the start of each year about the possibilities ahead, especially as I get older I feel more driven and optimistic, but I also feel the post-Christmas pocket pinch in January which can slightly thwart that excitement & optimism.
So for me, January is all about affordable, DrugStore/Pharmacy bought makeup. I can spend quite a while in pharmacies swatching and playing with makeup testers to try and make sure that I am getting the best quality products available at such low price tags.
And this tutorial is show-casing some of those good quality/low price makeup products!
