DKO's Beauty Baes

Welcome back babiesss. So seeing as my blog is a fashion and beauty blog, I decided it was about time I let you in on my favorite beauty buys of the past two months and this post is all about face.

Freshly washed and moisturized with absolutely no makeup one, I give you my natural face- ugh. Puffy first thing in the morning, and different shades of brown, darkest around my mouth and eyes. Which is why I had to dedicate a post to my new most loved foundation that was able to provide full coverage and an even skin tone.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation is literally my favorite. I have tried numerous foundations, from Bobbi Brown to Aerin but find that on dark skin or maybe just mine they seem to leave a orangey tone leaving me looking like a simpson. So ever since I watch Patricia Bright raving about the extended foundation lines for darker skin in her video here  I always wanted to try CT foundation and mateeeee it is delivering the goods.

I promise the pictures get better guys bare with me. Next I applied the most important thing in my makeup bag... Bobbi Brown correction stick which doubles up as a concealer and highlight for contouring. Like everyone else I make a basic tree of life on my face and blend blend blend.
Topping it off with a powder also lighter than my foundation which adds extra highlight and sets what is underneath using BEN NYE in shade Topaz. So many girls have been raving about this powder and I can honestly agree it works wonders but understand Banana is NOT the only shade the powder comes in!! (shade intended).

Blend, Blend & more Blending - still using my cute spectrum brushes of course.

Seeing as I started half my face I didn't want to leave it at just foundation and decided to use my new palettes. The Naked 3 and Sleek i-Divine vintage romance palette which is basically a cheap version of the naked smokey palette, the colours are literally the same.

Et Voila!

Autumnal Kouture

Welcome back guys! First and foremost I owe you all a major apology for my entire month absence. But I've started Uni - finally! Hence the cute rural background of Leicestershire; which gave me amazling lighting. But now I'm here, I'm hoping to get more regular with posts even do a room tour video and what not at a later date so keep your eyes pealed...

But first my more exciting news is about my newest venutre. DKO Kouture my very own luxury fur parkas most prominent for their huge fur collar. I was in search for one at a reasonable price for ages but after looking at essex boutiques, and simillar well known brands I had no luck finding a parka with a huge hood under £300; some brands even charging up to £600.

 But me being me,  I worked my inner entrepreneur and managed to partner up with the exact same stockist for some of these top selling boutiques, and now supply my own at a slightly lower price. I'm in love with them. The fur on the inside is ridiculously soft as well as detachable so when it's warm you cant still rock the green shell of the parka itself.

The fur is real, lightweight and not only does it come in the natural brown I'm wearing but it Blue, Pink & white. With the inside lining matching the collar. Which mine doesn't I'm aware but once I received my first stock despite the mix up, I couldn't bare to send it back.

I thought it would be a cute touch to wear my Adidas Supercolors by Pharrell Williams which I've actually had for the longest time, but never blogged. I wanted to wait for the hype to die down and actually forgot to blog about them.... typical me. Paired with my all time fave high waisted jeans & a classic turtle neck crop, this honestly has to be one of my favourite  posts to date.
And a massive shoutout to my baby girl Fola for the amazing photography. It's so cray what good lighting and an iPhone camera can do when you leave your camera back in London. I was feeling myself especially in this new foundation....(so many posts for you guys!!!)
