HOW TO: Dramatic Blue Smokey Eye

I'm really nervous to post this?! I love playing with make-up and I've done so many reviews on here letting you know my thoughts but I've never actually shown what you I can do with it, which is obviously the whole point of make-up! I think I'm just intimidated by how many amazing makeup artists and social influencers there are who's makeup and photo shop skills are so incredible that their makeup looks 100% flawless when photographed.

My Favourite Photographs I've Ever Taken

When I asked on Twitter for advice on what photography related post to write next, this was overwhelmingly the popular choice. Photography has been my hobby since I was 13, and I must have taken thousands upon thousands of photographs in the 7 years since I've started. I thought I'd reflect on what my favourite photos are. I'd also like to point out that I've been through several computers in the time I've been taking pictures so many of the original, high res images are not easily accessible to re-post here. However, I will put a link below each image to a high resolution original upload (if anybody's interested).

My French Trip Part I

Me and my boyfriend, Sam, are taking a little trip to France this year. We're only spending 5 days/4 nights in Paris but it'll be our first trip abroad together, so we're super excited! Actually, I may be a little too excited seeing how easy it is to get from England (particularly the south eastern coast, where we live) to France, but we're treating it like a proper holiday (you know what I mean?). With that in mind, I intend to post about my trip in 2 parts, with this being the first, entailing what I'm packing!

My All Time Favourite HOLY GRAIL Beauty Products

This is a post I've wanted to do for a long time, and I'm glad I've finally done it! This is a run down of my all time favourite "holy grail" beauty products. I decided to opt for sharing with you specific products, like for concealing, setting etc. If we were going to be talking shades, we could be here a very long time!

Jaclyn Hill Becca Cosmetics Champagne Collection REVIEW & SWATCHES

I first discovered the internet sensation Jaclyn Hill on Youtube when I was just 16.  Now, 4 years later, she's launched an entire collection with Becca Cosmetics, which I think is such a fantastic achievement for someone to earn through their own passion and hard work. As cheesy as it may sound, I'm really pleased to have been part of that in some way by being one of her subscribers.

Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo REVIEW

Another review that's a little overdue. It's been sitting in my drafts for a while! So, without further ado, here's my review on Chanel's Rouge Coco Stylo

Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick REVIEW

I love Too Faced liquid lipsticks, so I couldn't wait to try the newest additions: the Melted Matte range. I picked out some super beautiful neutrals!

Hourglass Ambient Light Correcting Primers REVIEW

These new primers from Hourglass are designed to be "light correcting", supposedly neutralising and softening warm and cool tones within your skin, perfecting your complexion with a "soft, subtle glow*".

NEW Laura Geller Highlighter Review

Laura Geller, famous for the amazing Baked Gelato Swirl illuminator Gilded Honey (which I used on my model Georgie for this photo shoot!) has recently launched two more shades. I love Gilded Honey so much (who doesn't?) that I ordered the new shades practically the second they came out!

Smashbox Insta-matte REVIEW

This post is far overdue, being the most requested on Twitter. I'll be honest: I don't like my lips. It took me so long to do the review because I knew it'd involve taking a photograph of my lips, which I was avoiding. They're very big, which - before Kylie Jenner came on the scene with her fillers - I was teased a little for in school. Anyway, I photographed them all the same. Sorry for the ramble, let's get to the important part.

Tarte Lippie Lingerie Matte Tint REVIEW & SWATCHES

A few weeks ago, Tarte held their 30% off sale and I took advantage of that by buying not one, not two, but all of the shades available in their Lippie Lingerie Matte Tint range. What can I say? I'm a makeup addict and the shades were just too pretty to choose just a couple..

Photo Shoot: June Portraits

On Friday, Georgie very kindly gave up nearly 2 hours of her all-important revision time to let me take a few portraits of her. My house has recently had a conservatory built, and I really wanted to make the most of the big, bright open space while it's totally empty with just a cream wall. It was a perfect back drop for the portrait session!
