Mark Hill MiracOILicious 2 Minute Intensive Treatment

Hello everyone.
Right where do I start. I don’t need to explain myself just go and buy this product. GO NOW! I’m joking. But seriously it’s like insane how good this product is.

So it’s a Mark Hill product someone who I’ve never really took interest in because to me it looks very basic drugstore hair care. Well my mother is a keen obsessive over Moroccan Argan Oil hair care products, you name it we’ve tried it all. I came to the conclusion that Argan is just another craze that will just disappear in a few years as it didn’t really do much difference to my hair.

My hair is naturally curly, full of split ends, extremely colour and heat damaged. I straighten my hair everyday (I know, tap on the wrist for me) because if I don’t my hair is an ugly, uncontrollable mess.

Let’s get to the product now, so I came home to 3 of the Mark Hill MiracOILicious products, the shampoo, conditioner and 2 minute intensive treatment which all smell DEVINE! I decided to use the shampoo and treatment. I shampooed as normal then followed the instructions saying drain out your hair of water then apply the treatment which says 2 minutes is sufficient. By the time I shaved and what not it was about 5 minutes. As I began to wash it out I noticed the immediate softness and shine. Followed by blow drying and straightening….. Oh my goodness, my hair looked like brand new. It was incredibly shiny, a lot stronger, silky with a lightweight feel. My hair was beautifully straight with an overall undamaged appearance. The more I’ve used this treatment the condition of my hair is improving. It’s retailed at £7.99. Worth every penny.

NEW PRODUCT: BENEFIT COSMETICS

Hello everyone,
Being a lucky girl working for Benefit I get given every new product before launch date. 😝 and my newest gift is ‘Gimme Brow’. US guys you’ve probably heard about it but for those who haven’t keep reading.

So what is this product?
It’s a brush-on fibre gel that adheres to skin and hairs to give a fuller effect to your brows.
Good points:
It’s water resistant, long wearing, natural looking also buildable.

How to use it:
Stoke brush tip along brow to define shape. Comb through to blend and build.

What I think of it:
I received the light/medium which is to light for me. Using it on my mother it really does work. With in seconds her brows had plumped up and were visibly more defined. Perfect for those no makeup days, because I couldn’t live without my Browzings. It’s quick and easy. I would recommend it to people who have not a lot of time in the morning. Overall good product. 🙂 XXX

Jazz up a Tesco F&F dress

Helloooo my lovelies,

I went to town shopping the other day and I thought i’ll show you what I did with a relatively cheap dress purchased from Tesco. It’s a red cotton material swing style dress which is so easy also comfortable to wear with some black tights and ankle boots. I decided to jazz it up a tiny bit by adding some designer.

Image

First I wore my gold collar neckless from Dorothy Perkins which was in the sale for £3.00. You can also see my black blazer which is from Primark.

Image

A Moschino waist belt, just to cut the dress up and give it more of a shape.

Image

And finally my Christian Louboutin Bianca boots.

Image

As for makeup, I kept it simple with feline black eyeliner, light contour, Soft & Gentle highlighter and finished with MAC cosmetics Myth lipstick.

My Work Glamour Photography

As well as working for Benefit & VW I have my own little business on the side which offers makeovers & Photography. I’ve done a few brides, proms, photoshoots. I’m particularly interested in working for a Glamour Magazine for example NUTS or ZOO, as I like the fact you can really go to town with the hair and makeup whilst also making the model look their best. Here are a few examples of my recent shoots. For more information like my page on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Alessia-Ferrucci-Make-up-Artist/514292985327344?ref=hl – I know myself I can do better, but it’s all learning the art of photoshop. Using only a backdrop and a light in my kitchen. You’ve gotta start somewhere. 🙂

Todays MINI Haul

So today I went to Castle Point with my grandmother for a coffee and I couldn’t resist buying a few more bits. As you may already know i’ve got a new office job aswell as staying with Benefit Cosmetics, but i’ve gone a little to crazy with office attire! I will do a blog post on what I have brought when the collection is complete! 🙂

1. Limited Edition Pointed Toe Ankle Strap Shoes with Insolia®Image

Image

 

I got these as they look really cute with black tights. These are a label called Limited Edition found in Marks & Spencer’s, They cost £35 but my grandmother treated me as of my new job. They are so comfortable they have something called Insolia® which redistributes your weight away from the balls of your feet, reducing pressure and increasing ankle stability, allowing you to wear your heels comfortably all day long. Perfect for a long day at work. 

2. Rose Gold Watch – Next

Image

 

Such a Gorgeous watch, it’s a rose gold colour with gems and it’s forever dazzeling. Classy yet wont break the bank at £25 unlike a Michael Korrs watch. 

3. Gem Bow iPhone Case.

Image

 

Now i’m never the one for a gem phone case as I think they look tacky. But this is amazing it’s so sparkly the photo does it no justice. I needed a phone case as my phone is scratched on the back. A little bit pricey at £17.99.
