Check out what Rebecca had to tell us when it comes to her beauty routine:
1. What's your best budget beauty buy?
When it comes to budget beauty products I think there are some really great budget concealers available. My two favourites are Rimmel Wake me up and Garnier Roll-on. I use these concealers together every single day. I use the Garner roll-on concealer first as this is a caffeine infused tinted anti-dark circles roll-on so it’s great to brighten up the under eye are first thing in the morning. I’ll then apply the Rimmel wake me up concealer in a V shape under my eye area as I find this has a nice highlighter effect and works really well on top of the Garnier roll on. As I would use these every day I’d definitely recommend them as good value budget concealers.
2. What's your top make-up tip?
My top make up tip is to put in that extra effort in prepping your skin before starting your make up application, when time permits of course. I’ve been using some Urban Decay skin preparation products lately and they’ve made such a difference in the look and lasting power of my makeup. I start with the Urban Decay Vitamin-Infused Complexion prep spray which is used in advance of applying your moisturiser. This contains Vitamin B6 which helps absorb oil and reduce the appearance of pores. I find it really refreshing when applied to my skin on a daily basis. After using my daily moisturiser I’ll then ensure to use a good primer as a base for my makeup. Lately I’ve been using the Urban Decay Brightening and Tightening complexion primer potion. Again it’s light enough to be used on a daily basis and smooths any fine lines on your skin aswell as brightening dull skin. There was a time when I wasn’t using any prep products in my makeup routine but I promise the difference is quite noticeable when you start to incorporate them into your daily routine.
3. Do you have a favourite all-round beauty product?
Yes, anyone who has been following my blog or YouTube channel knows my favourite all-round beauty product is definitely the Benefit Bad Gal mascara. This is one of their older ones with They’re Real and Roller Lash being more popular lately but I’m a firm Bad Gal fan. I’ve always preferred bristle brushes as compared to plastic mascara brushes and the Bad Gal mascara has a really thick bristle brush which is great for elongating lashes and adding extra lift and volume.
4. What's your earliest beauty memory?
My earliest beauty memory is probably when I received my first makeup set from my mam. I was so excited and thrilled at the possibility of playing around with the different eyeshadow colours. I’ve always been really creative and I remember the hours of enjoyment I got out of that one makeup set. I think every girl remembers their first beauty product.
5. Most girls have a signature scent – what's yours?
My signature scent is Prada Candy, I love this scent and think it complements my personality quite well -stylish but fun!
