June Birchbox: Daytrippin’

The beginning of the June has spun around quicker than I care for to be honest! Where is this year going and what do you mean I’m going to be 25 next month?!?! Whilst I’m busy simply trying to figure out time travel so I can be 21 again, my monthly subscription boxes arrived! This month’s summery Birchbox wasn’t a box at all, but a lovely little Birchbag instead!… Read More June Birchbox: Daytrippin’

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.… Read More Festivals 2017 – The ‘No Makeup’ Makeup Look

Review: Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer

I won a Twitter giveaway recently, and the prize was a bottle of the Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer. I’ve followed Too Faced for years, but have never either had the need or the money to buy any of their products. So I was suitably excited to give this product a whirl. The primer cost £27.00 and is a generous size, and is a little different to other primers I’ve used.… Read More Review: Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer

Review: Glow Cult Cosmetics Unicorn Oil

Isn’t Pinterest amazing? I find most of my beauty products through it. It’s very easy to want something when you see how it looks on someone else. That’s the story with this product. When I saw a picture of a girl with perfect dutch braids and a gorgeous, shimmery, pink glow on her cheeks, I was desperate to copy her look. The fact that the product she attributed the glow was called ‘Unicorn Oil’ sold it. I clicked the link and added it to my cart before I even checked the brand!… Read More Review: Glow Cult Cosmetics Unicorn Oil

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.… Read More Foundation Techniques: Which Applicator is Best?

Worth the Hype? The Anastasia Beverly Hills x Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit

But as I eagerly awaited the arrival of my package, I started to think; Why did I want this palette so much? I did like highlighters, and in all honestly this palette probably started my obsession with them! But it was so expensive, difficult to replace and just another palette. The fact that it was impossible to get probably helped! There was such a hype surrounding this palette, to the extent that people got genuinely excited for me when I announced on Twitter I’d managed to buy one. Was it honestly going to be worth it?… Read More Worth the Hype? The Anastasia Beverly Hills x Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit

Review: Makeup Revolution Iconic Smokey Palette

I first discovered Makeup Revolution through Instagram and fell in love with their highlighter selection, and their prices! It you want good quality makeup that doesn’t cost the Earth, or want some quality products to start a makeup journey on, I can’t recommend them enough! With that said, I recently bought the Iconic Smokey eyeshadow palette (well, 2; one for me and one for the giveaway) and have been very happy with my purchase. Not only is this a great dupe for the more expensive Urban Decay Naked Smokey palette, but the quality is fantastic for the price, and the colour selection is beautiful.… Read More Review: Makeup Revolution Iconic Smokey Palette
