New Obsession: L.A. Girl Colour Corrector

It's been a long while since I've written a beauty related blog post. What better way to get back into writing beauty blog posts than to blab on and on about my new obsession. I seriously don't even know where on this planet I've been by missing out on trying out colour correctors for my embarrassingly bright red nose. For the past couple years I've been packing on tons of concealer on my nose to cover up the redness but still shows through after a couple hours. I'm one of those people who gets questioned a lot about 'Why my nose is so red?'. So after seeing one of my favourite Youtubers, Farah, use the orange colour corrector for the dark parts, I decided to give all 3 colour correctors a try after noticing how flawless it made Farah's skin look (even though she is already perfectly stunning!;)) And the great part is that these LA Girl Correctors are super inexpensive.

So here are my thoughts on each of the colour correctors:

Green: To hide Redness 
Covered my bright red nose. I applied it before foundation and blended it with my fingers. Usually if I just go straight onto foundation, my red nose will still show through. But after using the green corrector, I didn't need much foundation or concealer to cover it. Now it's a part of my everyday foundation routine.

Yellow: To brighten dull areas
I use this under my eyes and on the bridge of my nose. I use this before my concealer. Surprisingly I had less creasing under my eyes when I wore this, so thats a bonus!

Orange: To cover dark spots 
I don't use this as much but my sister applied it around the sides of her mouth as she's a little darker around that area. It made her foundation look a lot less ashy around that area. Now she's gone and bought herself the orange one after noticing such a big difference.

The only downside is that there is not much product in the packaging. I feel like half of the packaging is filled up with just plain air which is just a waste of packaging really.

Let me know if you've tried these out?

Outfit: Khaki & Grey

This has to be my favourite outfit yet because of the neutral colours, oversized coat, and the attention-catching, sassy grey heels. I love how this grey coat can still be worn into the Spring season as it is very light weight. I paired it with the sleeveless dress from River Island that I got last summer but just never got around to blogging it. I hope you all like this neutral, dressy look! Let me know what you think?

Outfit: Warm Tones

This is the sort of outfit I would usually wear on an every day basis. Something super comfy yet still look fashionable. I got this scarf back in the Autumn season. I just love the colours of this scarf, it just reminds me of the Autumn leaves and candles. It's currently on sale for £3.00. Sadly I don't have the patience for things to go on sale.

Outfit: Winter Straps

I feel so lucky to have spotted these strappy heels at New Look because these were the only ones that they had left and luckily they were in my size which is usually rare. Being a size 4 isn't easy with a lot of size 4 shoes being sold out so often. So I've put together a very simple outfit and threw on a big chunky scarf to add a bit of prints and colour to this look whilst still bringing attention to these killer heels.

What I'm Wearing
Dress: New Look
Shoes: New Look
Scarf: New Look (now on sale!)
Bag: River Island (sold out) alternative here
