Life Of A Beauty Nerd Birthday Giveaway

Tomorrow I will have been blogging seriously for an entire year. Now although I have had this blog since 2014, I kept going in and out of posting and I ended up making the decision to stop blogging until I had finished at university. It was last January when I decided to start blogging again but I wanted to take it more seriously. Since then I have posted twice a week, using a nice marble backgroud and using my social media more effectively to promote my posts. I will now consider my 'Blog Birthday' to be the 29th January as this is when my first proper blogging post went up last year. As a celebration of this, and a thank-you to everyone who has ever read my blog, I have decided to hold a giveaway! The giveaway is however UK only.

Birthday Giveaway - Life Of A Beauty Nerd
In this giveaway, you could win a bundle of some of my favourite products and brands from the last year: The Soap&Glory Birthday Washes set, Sleek MakeUP Highlighting Palette in Solstice and two shades of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in London and Monte Carlo!

Soap&Glory Birthday Washes Set
I have loved Soap&Glory for so many years. The packaging is always super cute and I love some of the puns that they have given their products. It is also a brand that not only produces great bath sets, but the actual make-up products and sets that they bring out are good as well. I have been given so many poor quality make-up sets in my life, it is great to have a brand out there which not only will people love, but the products are good quality.

Whilst I adore so much of their make-up, bath and body products are where Soap&Glory are the queens. I chose this Birthday Washes set, one because I like how the name tied into my reason for the giveaway, but it also includes two of Soap & Glory's best selling products: The Righteous Butter body butter and Clean On Me creamy moisturisng shower cream.

Sleek MakeUP Highlighting Palette in Solstice
This palette contains some of the best highlighters that I have ever used! From subtle to intense, this palette has it all! It also comes in the most gorgeous packaging, although prepare for it to get covered in fingerprints.

My two favourite shades within the palette is the amazing purple highlighter (but don't worry, you will not be walking around with a purple line across your cheek) and the cream highlighter which provides a more subtle glow and I tend to place that a bit lower almost to where I would put blusher.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in London and Monte Carlo
Liquid lipsticks are still my ultimate make-up fave right now and one of my top picks is the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream. They are a great option to start with as they are not drying but still provide a gorgeous matte colour to the lips. I have tried both nude and colour options and they both work amazingly.

I decided to choose the shade London because it's where I am from and it is a beautiful nude shade that isn't too pink. Now whilst I hope many people would be able to use this, I wanted to include a bolder shade as well. The shade Monte Carlo is a beautiful rich cranberry red which I think would look gorgeous on all skin-tones.

How To Enter
All you need to do to enter the giveaway is follow me on Twitter and Instagram, and for a bonus entry, follow my blog on Bloglovin. I will be checking when choosing a winner! The giveaway will be open for one week and remember, it is UK only.
