Our Beauty Blogger of the Week is Celine from Vintage Teapot . Her blog is the perfect place to indulge in everything fashion, beauty and lifestyle related.. We asked Celine for loads of details on everything beauty related so you'll be sure to pick up a few tips.
What's your best budget beauty buy?
Without a doubt the Osiris CC Cream available from Lidl stores nationwide, while used on it's own it failed to impress when used as a primer/base with a liquid illuminator it works wonders, smoothing out any imperfection for the perfect radiant canvas to apply foundation to! It's definitely one of my holy grail, all for under €3!
What's your top make-up tip?
One of my top make-up tips, particularly for eyeshadow novices, is to blend a warm-toned brown through the crease before you apply any other shadow. The likes of Benefit's Hoola Bronzer work perfectly, just apply with a fluffy crease brush or any blending brush to make blending any other colours so much easier, to ensure no harsh lines and a perfectly blended smokey eye!
Do you have a favourite all-round beauty product?
I've recently discovered so many uses of Bio-Oil which I blogged about here, the wide range of uses it has definitely makes it one of my favourite all-round beauty products. Recently, I have loved using it as a bath oil for supple skin, popping some on my face for some extra nourishment and running it through the ends of my hair after washing! It's the ultimate pamper evening essential, while also carrying so many nourishing ingredients- winner!
What's your earliest beauty memory?
Growing up in a house full of boys, when my younger self was in search of some make-up I headed straight for my mum's dresser. On one particular occasion I can remember scouring her drawers looking for wipes after excessively applying bronzer, little did I know that the wipes I grabbed were actually tan wipes. I can vividly remember my mum's anger the following morning when I woke up with an orange face – thinking I'd done it on purpose!
Most girls have a signature scent- what's yours?
When it comes to perfume, I have a tendency to just grab and go from the selection of perfumes I receive as gifts, as perfume is never something I really pick up myself. I never devote myself to one particular perfume so I've yet to establish my signature scent, however i'm currently an avid wearer of Yves Rocher's Flower Party by Night – it's the one I currently reach for daily for it's beautiful floral scent.
