First of all let me start off this post by saying that I am saddened to hear of the rioting that took place in London this week. I was there about a month ago for a wedding and am truly saddened to hear about the losses this city had.
I was only in London for a week and my main purpose was to go to a cousin’s civil ceremony (my favorite cousin… you know who you are). I had done sightseeing before when I was younger, and I didn’t really think there was anything I wanted that I could not get from NY so I was not so eager to go shopping . I did stock up on some beauty products so I thought I would share what I bought. Read on to find out what I bought.
If you have read my past post on makeup, you know I follow the British sisters Pixiwoo for makeup tutorials. Generally they use products that you can buy in the US easily, however they have raved about Louise Young brushes which I could not find in the states. I decided I NEEDED to get them after watching their tutorials. Believe me I am not disappointed in buying them. They are AMAZING!
I follow the blogger Hudabeauty who has some great recommendations for beauty products and one of the beauty companies she recommends is Soap and Glory. They have not come to US but will be available soon! If I like the products I won’t have to go back to London. I will keep you posted!
I also loved the brides make up, and luckily her sister was the makeup artist who recommended Kryolan Foundation. I have fallen in love with this product, but I use it for my evening makeup. Warning it is not foundation you buy from Sephora, it is some heavy duty stuff!
I had a great time in London even though I wasn’t exploring much. I got to go for a lovely wedding and came back with minimal products, (minimal shopping for me) fabulous memories, and some new family members!
