Avon Magix Face Perfector

This product is one of few that I have used for a very long time. Whenever I try a new product, I just end up returning to it as I can safely say it is the best of its kind I have ever used.
The product claims to:
-Target Pores: reduce the look of pores and banish shine for up to 10 hours
-Smooth Skin: velvety soft formula visibly smooths fine lines
-Illuminate Skin: with exclusive Optic Light Diffusing Technology
-2 Ways to Wear - alone or under foundation for extra coverage.

This product is brilliant for all skin types as far as I can tell (over the time I have used it, my skin has gone from oily to dry to sensitive) and it can be used on any skin tone as it is colourless. For me, this product is brilliant as it reduces shine, blurs and evens skin tone (it works brilliantly on my freckles). It leaves your skin feeling velvety and smooth but still is very lightweight, I really love how when I put this on and then blend in concealer it is so effortless. 
Generally, I use this as a primer but if I'm in a rush or am going to school etc. I use this on its own or with the Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder and some concealer. I usually just apply a pea sized amount to my face with my fingers, it looks and feels like a face cream. 

It is also a brilliant, affordable alternative to the Benefit Porefessional, which I also love but is much cheaper. 

If you don't currently receive an Avon catalogue, I would highly recommend signing up. If not, you can also order from their website. Find the Face Perfector (30ml) here: http://avonshop.co.uk/product/make-up/face/foundation/avon-colour-magix-face-perfector.html
It is normally £10.50 but is currently reduced to £6.00! Win win!

I would love to hear your opinions on the product or an alternative option I could try?

Hairspray for Fringes - VO5 Ultimate Hold vs. Bed Head Masterpiece

This post is on yet another somewhat mundane issue - hairspray. There are so many brands to chose from and so many prices too! After going on holiday and forgetting hairspray (I have a fringe so use it daily to stop it looking funny) I picked up some VO5 Ultimate Hold as my usual Bed Head Masterpiece is quite pricey. So I thought I would put them to the test in a battle of skinted vs. minted.

Value for money: The Bed Head Masterpiece is considerably more at RRP £14.95 and has 60 ml less product than the Ultimate Hold (£3.29). However, one can of Masterpiece has now lasted me four months as you hardly have to use any. Also, it is much cheaper online at around £7.00. When I use the VO5 hairspray, I find I have to use a lot more for the same hold which makes the hair look like straw. However, you could buy many more cans of the VO5 for the price. 

Hold: The Bed Head is brilliant. It keeps my fringe in place even when I walk to school in the wind and unless the weather is appalling, my hair…

An Opportunity to Reflect and Say Thank You

Since starting A2, time has been rather limited, hence the lack of blog posts recently. With Christmas and New Year fast approaching, I thought I would take a moment to reflect on 2017 and summarise some of the best moments of the year.

My time at home is quickly coming to an end; in September, all being well, I'll be off to university. I didn't realise until quite recently how much I take for granted while I am living at home. This year has been a year of change and a year to grow up, turning 18 has made me realise just how soon independence is going to come.

Perhaps it is this growing independence that has caused 2017 to be the busiest and most eventful year to date. It's been a year of exams and planning and looking around universities and opportunities. Yet it's also been a year in which I feel as though I've appreciated the incredible friends around me.

Without further ado, here are just a few highlights of 2017.

Challenging a Holy Grail

It's probably a bit strange that my first blog post in a while is a foundation/makeup thing. It really has been a while since I've done anything like this because, let's be honest, anybody reading this is likely 100x more experienced and knowledgable about makeup than I am after spending the year rarely wearing it.

However, when I look online, I struggle to find foundation recommendations for people with similar skin to mine so I thought this might be of some use.

I have very fair skin so struggle to find anything from high street makeup brands (and high end most of the time) that's the right shade as my skin, despite being pale, doesn't particularly have pink undertones, which most foundations at the lighter end of the shade range tend to have.

The only foundation that I tend to buy other than the MAC Studio Fix fluid in NW10 (a tad too dark but good for going out) is the Revlon Colorstay Normal/Dry in 110 Ivory. When I first started to use this foundation, I used…
