Long time no chat! As I’m sure you have gathered, I am a working Make up Artist, that means that it is my full time job, and to the end, means loooooong hours. I’ve recently been working on a few films, including Dracula, which involves 13 hour days and getting up at 4am, and I’ve managed to squeeze in a few photo shoots (including the Christmas cover of GayNI, so keep your eyes peeled!) formal make ups and the odd wedding, so the blog has been cast aside in favour of sleep!
If you want to keep up to date with what I’m working on, you’re probably best following me on Instagram or Twitter (@bexberymua) as they are quick and easy to update regularly.
Anyway, as I’ve been running around like a mad woman, I really haven’t been wearing very much make up, a quick lick of mascara and some concealer, and that’s on a good day, however, my skin has gone a bit mad, I’m guessing it’s down to stress and food and lack of sleep really, but I have been super super spotty and noticed a lot of blackheads, I don’t normally get black heads, so I had a small panic and got the facemasks on!
First up, I cracked out the Vichy Normaderm 3 - in - 1 Cleanser and used it as a mask
Me and the Man looking just beautiful!
It started to dry up any active spotties I had, but unfortunately I still felt and looked all clogged up :(
So I whipped out everyone's trusty favourite brand of facemask, Montagne Jeunesse, I picked mine up from ASDA for 99p each, but you can get them all over the show.
I went for the Passion Peel off Mask, firstly, the smell, oh my, I wanted to eat it never mind put it on my face!!! It smells AMAZING!!!
I smoothed it on (barely stopping myself from having a wee taste) and sat back and watched the food network, which in hindsight, while I had a delicious smelling facemask on, probably wasn’t the best idea I’ve ever had.
15 Minutes later and I started to peel it off! It didn’t hurt at all, which I was kinda worried about, but it was grand!
After I had pulled it all off, my skin felt really smooth and clean, and it seems to have done a fantastic job clearing my pores and stopping any more spots from popping up!
Have you used these face masks before? I bought a few that day, so I’m definitely going to try a couple more!
Speak soon lovelies
