Fake Bake Face And Body Contouring 3D Kit | A Fake Tan Glow To Transition From Summer To Autumn | First Impressions

Evening pups!!

It's practically the end of August now and I for one am very glad about it. I cannot freaking wait for Autumn, being able to snuggle up in the warm with a hot chocolate and movies. 

Autumn for me is the most beautiful time of year, I love the smells, the colours and all things associated with Halloween, Bonfire night and Christmas. It literally cannot come soon enough. 

Just because it's transitioning into Autumn doesn't mean that you cannot keep your natural or be it, fake golden glow throughout the chillier months. Obviously across the globe it's not slipping into Autumn everywhere, I am talking about the UK here but that doesn't mean this doesn't apply to you. 

Last week, I was kindly sent over from Fake Bake their 3D face and body tanning kit as part of their #SaveYourSelfie campaign. I have also written a 'confidence' story to be featured on their site, which I am waiting for it to go live.

Thanks Fake Bake!! 

I have never tried their products before but have always been interested in the brand as they present their products beautifully. 

Now, as everyone knows I am a pale face, a vampire if you must but I am no stranger to fake tan in the slightest. I have tried and tested a few brands and products, some of which I would never re-purchase again. 

I do have quite dry skin in general, I do moisturise a lot but even so my skin remains in that problem area. This is what puts me off fake tanning because my tan NEVER ends up even, just patchy. 

Annoying much. 

I just end up scrubbing the tan away and regain my sun deprived skin. 

I will be honest with you I didn't have a lot of hope for this product working on me and not because it's the products fault, it's the fact my idiotic skin just says "NO". 


I love the presentation of this kit, I really warm to the fact that it's white and gold. It's aesthetically pleasing and gives the kit a luxurious feel to it.  

This kit retails at £49.95 and contains the following;

. Flawless Coconut Tanning Serum (148ml) 
. Airbrush Self-Tan (207ml)
. Pro Blend Dab Hand Applicator 
. Step-by-step guide 
. Gloves

The shade I was sent was 'medium' which is perfect for me as I can find the 'light' versions never tan me enough. If I am tanning I want to see a result. 

Basically this kit allows you to tan your skin all over with the serum provides and then using the 'airbrush' spray you can contour your legs, body and face. That's what the sponge applicator is for, to contour your cheeks, chin, jawline, nose and forehead. 

I have never seen another brand bring something like this to the table. It's refreshing. I decided not to touch my face with this tan first off because if it went wrong I would be stuck with a seriously tribal looking face. Ha. 

The instructions are great to follow and includes diagrams.

I haven't got round to using the instant spray tanner yet as I just wanted to test out the serum on its own first. The serum bottle comes with a lovely shiny gold pump and it deposits small amounts of product which is super handy as you won't waste any. 

As per the instructions, I applied this at night with the gloves provided. I applied the serum in circular motions to ensure everything was evenly blended in. I had pre-moisturised especially on my dry areas such as the knees and elbows and covered my whole body in the solution. 

It comes out as a dark serum so you can see where you are applying it, it drys quite quickly too and oh my goodness... THE SMELL... THE SMELL IS AMAZING. It smells like it says on the bottle. Like coconuts. Not freaking biscuits. 

I then walked around my room for around 30 minutes for it to air dry before going to bed. 

The instructions on the bottle said to leave it on between 6-8 hours and wash off in the morning. 

I did just that. 

The one thing I didn't like was that the tan, once applied remained sticky/tacky and it made it really hard for me to sleep as I felt uncomfortable. It was a warm night too so that wouldn't of helped either.

You can see the results for yourself below. 

* I did use my phone cam for these as it was early and I couldn't be bothered to get my SLR out*. 

I will be completely honest it did go patchy in the areas I expected it to go patchy in which was the font of my shin and just around my top arm area. These areas' had little tan on them.

I was expecting this and I am not a pro at applying tan so that would of added salt to the wound. 

What I will say is that this is the best fake tan I have actually used so far. It produced an even tan (to those area's that weren't dry) and was a really lovely shade. It made me feel and look really healthy.

My elbows and knees decided to take the tan on more, even though I had moisturised them prior to application. My dad gave me a funny look when he saw them as they were pretty outlandish. Ha. Other than that, the tan was perfect and so was the shade.

 I cannot wait to re-apply this and this time I have bought a mitt in hope the application on my behalf may come out better. 

I would highly recommend this product on my first impressions alone, the serum goes a long way so it's going to last you a while, which means it's well worth the price tag. 

You can get it here.

If you're looking for a self tanner to do at home I hope this post has helped you make a decision on what to choose.

Easy How To Side Boxer Braid - inc Video | Garnier Beauty Blogger Exclusive Box | How I Keep My Hair Healthy And Long.


beauty blogger, boxer braid, wedding hair, festival hairstyle, garnier, honey treasures, hair care, how to, hair tutorial, new look, hair rings,




Hello my beautiful little readers!! 

I hope everyone is fine and dandy?! 

I am actually meant to be in the bath right now but I am running so behind today as I decided to sing for hours on Smule and then I did an unplanned video for this which I have not long edited. I am now waiting for it to upload to YouTube. 

I am going to fake tan tonight. 

*GASPS*

I know right, I rarely fake tan because sometimes I just feel it's quite over rated. However I was sent a kit from Fake Bake which is unreal and I am reviewing it for Monday soooo I need to "chop chop" and get that golden glow. I really hope to the lordy that it doesn't go orange. I don't want no tide marks thank you very much. 

Quite recently I have been wearing my hair in either boxer braid pigtails or just a mahooosive one stuck to the side of my neck. 

I have had SO many people compliment me on it in the street and via social media and have asked me how I do it. 

I was going to do a set of pictures as a tutorial but I thought it may be easier if I make a video in which you can watch and try and master it yourself. 

Once you have the hang of it it's so quick and easy to do and re-create. You can really jazz this look up by putting glitter in your hair (perfect for festivals or gigs), weaving ribbon through the plait or adding hair rings like I do. 

I thought I would also mention the Gariner Beauty Blogger exclusive box which I was kindly sent by Garnier themselves. The reason for this mention is because they sent me ALL the products that I LOVE to use on my hair. All four products are my go to hair care items and will be for a long while. 

It's the Honey Treasures range and my gosh doesn't it smell super amazing. Just think of a massive honey pot and you're diving right into that badboy and basking in the glory of the sweet scent and the luxurious feel. That's EXACTLY what your hair is like after washing with these products. 

Oh yeah, a little warning about hair products because A LOT of people do not know about this. When buying ANY hair product please check the ingredients... This is not a drill, I repeat this is not a drill... Most of the brands ingredients contain a harmful substance. 

Look out for METALLIC SALTS!

They will ruin your hair like nobody's business, look out for anything like Magnesium or anything metal related on the packaging. I have discovered that John Frieda's Brilliant Brunette range contains it and when you go to colour treat your hair, the chemicals have a field day. 


You're welcome. :) 


So here's the tutorial for you via video and I will insert some pics below of the finished look and my Garnier Beauty Blogger box.

 I hope you have enjoyed this post, I really do love editing videos. Someone buy me a Mac so I don't have to keep pinching my brothers. Ha. 

Let me know if you have managed to do your own boxer braid by using this tutorial and let me know what you would like to see next. 

I love to explore new ideas.


Have a super happy Bank Holiday weekend (UK) and normal weekend for the rest of you. 


P.S. I might be going to the Safari Park again next week... Hella yeah!!!

Collective Haul | Beauty Bay | Superdrug | Primark | Budget Brands.

collective haul, haul, makeup, beauty bay, primark, superdrug, la girl, morphe brushes, 350, 350m, makeup geek, makeup artist, loreal, garnier, collection concealer, beauty blogger



Oh hiiii!!! 

Guess who's back... Back again... Leya's back... Tell yo friends!! 

(Now I have that freaking song in my head)


It's the beginning of a fresh new week and a new set of goals. All mine are failing miserably right now. We wont even touch on that subject. 

My brother has pizza right now and I WANT ONE!! I had god damn lettuce leaves, yes, leaves. I would of had one if I hadn't of eaten crap all day. I cannot wait for Autumn so I can exercise again properly. In this muggy little heat I cannot function let alone rip my muscles to shreds. Ha. 

You guys should know me by now... I am an addict. 

My name is Leya and I am addicted to makeup and just shopping in general. 

Now, I am not one of those who has to be shopping all the time, I just like picking things up that I genuinely need or it has caught my eye for one reason or another.  

Beauty Bay is quickly becoming my new found favourite addiction. There's free shipping over £15 and they stock a lot of the American products that aren't readily available in the UK. 

My favourite brands are particularly Morphe, Makeup Geek and LA Girl. There are so many more brands I want to try though. I REALLY want the ABH Moonchild Glow Kit but you can't get it here and it's limited edition. Just like me. :D 

You can find the link to Beauty Bay on my page, go spend your money. You won't regret it. This is my third order.

As it is so simply put in the title of this post, you know it's a haul. This time it is a collective as I have bought some other bits and bobs too from other stores. I visited Superdrug and good old Primark. I didn't go OTT, I was pretty stable.

I have decided to post this haul because everything I bought is extremely affordable and easily accessible!! 

Lets GO!!


collective haul, haul, makeup, beauty bay, primark, superdrug, la girl, morphe brushes, 350, 350m, makeup geek, makeup artist, loreal, garnier, collection concealer, beauty blogger


Yes you can see correctly!! I FINALLY got one of the most sort after palettes there is and that's the Morphe 350M. If you read my previous posts you would of known that I had tried for months and months to get my hands on the original 350 palette but it sold out soooo quickly. It's like everyone inhaled it. I never stood a chance. SO, when Beauty Bay warned us the complete matte version was coming out the next day I was on that shit man. I set my alarm to wake up extra early (I am sad, I don't give any carebares) so I could clean Cody (my Guinea pig) out and at least brush my teeth. 

I got it!! YAS!!! I love working with matte makeup, especially eyeshadows' so this palette is perfect for me. The tones are incredible and 100% my style and I cannot wait to use it.

This is everything I bought in my Beauty Bay haul. I have a thaaang for LA Girl too right now, as mentioned and also Makeup Geek. I bought the empty Morphe Palette to put all my single pans in. This beauty was just a little over £5, which is hella amazing as it fits the MG pans in perfectly. I need three more pans to complete my palette (which is magnetic) and I now want, Corrupt, Shimma Shimma and Morocco (all MG).

This empty pallet is a complete steal at over £5 compared to how much the Z palettes are. I am sooo happy with this and it's super cute!

collective haul, haul, makeup, beauty bay, primark, superdrug, la girl, morphe brushes, 350, 350m, makeup geek, makeup artist, loreal, garnier, collection concealer, beauty blogger


In all its glory, the 350M palette. Forget look at "that glow though". Look at those tones though. They are so Autumnal, it's me in a freaking palette guys! This was just over £19. 

collective haul, haul, makeup, beauty bay, primark, superdrug, la girl, morphe brushes, 350, 350m, makeup geek, makeup artist, loreal, garnier, collection concealer, beauty blogger


MG - Chickadee, Morphe - Blackberry.

The Makeup Geek is just under £5 and the Morphe one is a barg at just under £2. 

Can I get a "hell yeah"!

collective haul, haul, makeup, beauty bay, primark, superdrug, la girl, morphe brushes, 350, 350m, makeup geek, makeup artist, loreal, garnier, collection concealer, beauty blogger

LA Girl is such a cheap brand but really is good quality considering their prices. The blue is an eyeliner, it's not as 'electric' as I wanted it but for under £2 who's complaining. The Berry colour is a lip liner. I have tried this on and I love it. This was £2.49 and the liner pen is super thin and I wanted to try that out for size. That was £4.

 I have this concealer in the orange corrector and love it so I wanted the lightest shade concealer they do so I can place it on top of my foundation, under my eyes to create the whole light and shade thang.

Finally in this order I bought the Morphe M135 brush to blend out my shadow under my eyes. I am yet to see how this fairs but I am impressed with their other brushes so far. I think this was like £2.

I have been looking for a night cream to pop on and whilst browsing through Superdrug on Friday I found these bad boys. Both under £2 - I know right. The cream is on offer, so head in there and get it.

I needed new Micellar water and have tried all of these in the range bar this one. I wasn't keen on the blue one, the pink is currently my favourite and this one looks cool. I'll let everyone know via SM how I get on. I bought my trusty concealer as always and I actually re-purchased the L'Oreal Infallible foundation. I tried the one I had when I won their competition and fell in love and used it all. And this L'Oreal Extraordinary hair oil was on offer for £2 so I picked that up too.

The final shop I went into was Primark, I picked up a couple of things but I am waiting for the Autumn/Winter things to finally drop before I go in there fully.

I fell in love with this scarf because of the colouring. I was imagining this teamed with a long-line duster jacket, ripped jeans and boots.

If you know me, you will know I am never too far away from a hot water bottle, this is an essential for me (B12 issues) so it's always handy to have one seeing as I have no man to cuddle up to. 

*Get the violins out*

Makeup bag to chuck into one of my bags when I am swapping about so I have all my essentials with me at ALL times.

I LOVE these little fairy lights!! I got them as a prop for my blog pics but right now they are on my dressing table shining bright like a copper diamond.

Come on how snazzy is this sweat. I love everything about it. Although I wish they made them longer. I really like the holographic pattern on it and the fact it's white is always great for Instagram photes... Not so much when you get makeup down it. 


And breathe.... We are all done!!
