MUA Prime and Conceal Correcting Cream | Review

Hey everyone, so today I'm here with a review of MUA's Prime and Conceal Correcting Cream in Green. It's £2 and is quite a big palette so defo worth a try!



I purchased this after discovering that green neutralises redness. I have quite a few red blemishes on my cheeks and nose. I apply this under my foundation therefore the redness is a lot easier to cover and is unnoticeable, it's great! Plus for the price you can't really go wrong.

The concept behind concealing certain colors (ie: redness, blue/black under eye circles) with other colors, goes way back to art class! Whatever color you want to conceal, choose the color directly across from it on the color wheel to get the job done. This is why I also use a yellow concealer for under my eyes.




Thankyou for reading - comment below if you have tried this concealer or recommend any other green concealer.

My Holiday to Mallorca

Hey everyone! So from the 31st of July to the 10th of August me and my family went to Cala D'or in Mallorca along with 3 other family's. This was my first time and I loved it! It was so gorgeous! The resort was right on the beach! The food was amazing and the town near by was great for nights. I have a few photos of the resort - we stayed in Inturotel Esmerelda Park; highly recommend!!



Everyone💜


I didn't actually get many photos as I didn't take my phone out with me a lot but the last couple photos are from a speed boat we went on! It was so fun!



Hope you liked this - it was more of a personal, memory post but I love looking at all the different places people go on holiday so why not! Thankyou for reading!!
