Festivals 2017 – The ‘No Makeup’ Makeup Look

One of the biggest fashion looks I saw at Coachella was the boho look. I’m so happy it’s making a come back! Time for rustic, floral prints, loose fitting dresses, short denim shorts and loose, wavy hair. It’s all about naturalness. The “I woke up like this” vibe. As if you rolled out of bed, selected the first piece of crumpled up clothing from your floordrobe and waltzed out of the front door, glowing and glorious. Except in reality, it’s a carefully calculated look, pairing the right print with the right accessories and the right makeup. But in my opinion, the right makeup is the ‘No Makeup’ Makeup look.

Foundation Techniques: Which Applicator is Best?

I’m going to apply foundation onto my face 8 times, because I’m genuinely curious as to which technique comes out on top. I’ll be using 2 foundations; my absolute holy grail foundation (Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Foundation) and a foundation I have several issues with (L’Oreal Infallible 24hr Matte Foundation). I’ll be using four techniques for each; classic finger blending, the beauty blender, brushing with a traditional foundation brush and using an oval brush.

March Birchbox – The Overview

It’s that time of the month again (and not the one that freaks little boys out!); although it’s a few days late, my March Birchbox arrived today! A celebration of the anniversary of the first UK Birchbox, this month sees us given a simplistic box, plain, with a cardboard style lid. No drawer, but a cute cotton bag to store your stuff in. You also get a 20% off voucher for the Birchbox store. Nice!

Review: Benefit “They’re Real!” Double the Lip Lipstick

I’m gonna say it loud and clear here guys: I love Benefit cosmetics! They are by far my favourite brand and have been since I was about 14 years old and a staff member grabbed my sister in Debenhams to ask if she wanted to try some of their products. The love of Benefit is one of the few things my sister and I solidly have in common! With fun product names, pretty packaging and great quality products, is hard to go wrong with Benefit.
