Product Empties | May/June

So firstly, sorry for the blurry images - my laptop broke and I had to transfer these from my desktop to my laptop once it was repaired, and the transfer butchered the quality for some reason. Secondly, let's take a look at what I've used up over the past couple of months!

June Favourites

 I can't believe how I've abandoned the blog for so long! I've got so many ideas but I've majorly overworked myself when it comes to photography.

What's New From Hourglass? | Review

Hourglass is pretty up there in terms of luxury brands, isn't it? With (by and large) impeccable formulas and price tags to boot (we're talking £50+ primers), I know that when I put Hourglass make up on my face, it is akin to bringing out the big guns.

My Spring/Summer Fragrance Wish List*

New seasons often feels akin to a sort of fresh start to some people. As the weather changes, your wardrobe might get changed up; your skincare routine might be over hauled; and your fragrance collection might need a new addition or two.

My Summer Holiday Make Up Bag

Following on from my Beauty Travel Essentials - where I talked all things skincare, haircare and body care for Summer - let's take a peek into my Summer holiday make up bag!

New Things from Charlotte Tilbury! | A HAUL

My plan was for June to be my month of blogging, but it feels like the universe is against me. My laptop has hit the dust (R.I.P), but hopefully it should be fixed tomorrow. This haul is actually from a little while ago now, but hey - better late than never.

Beauty Travel Essentials | + Summer Giveaway

It's that time of year again where those of us who are lucky enough to be able to get away for a week or two, to enjoy the summer heat and sunshine away from reality - preferably by a pool - start to get excited about it, and start to pack all the essentials.

What's New From Omorovicza?

Without a doubt, my favourites skincare brand has to be Omorovicza. I first discovered their products back in January 2017, and have been pretty much obsessed ever since. Having gone through countless Deep Cleansing Masks and becoming a fully fledged Refining Facial Polisher addict, I couldn't wait to get my mitts on their latest launches.

May Favourites

May: Exam season, heat waves, flash floods; and a hint of make up, skincare and hair care! Here's what I've been loving lately:

My Favourite Base for Flawless, Glowing Skin

My favourite skin make up is a base that looks flawless and glowing, but whilst also still looking like skin - not like make up. My current favourite way to achieve this, is this pair from Armani.

Photo Shoot: Poppy

This was a very spontaneous photo shoot after I had a client cancel. I was already in the mood to take photographs so I asked a new model, Poppy, if she was up for some photographs.

NEW Maybelline Dream Matte Blush Review

 I'm hating this short, quick style blog post; where I post some pictures of a product I've been using lately, post pictures of swatches and quickly type up some thoughts. I much prefer being thorough.

Estee Lauder Skincare Set Giveaway

I'm running a little giveaway over on my social media, so I thought I'd let you know about it over on the blog, too. 

Friday, 18 May 2018

I bought THREE Chanel Highlighters (Yes, I'm crazy)

Okay, don't judge me. I had been eyeing this beauties up for ages, swatching them every time I go in store and practically dribbling over them online.

Would you like a free eyebrow shaping?

In a beauty box I bought recently, I received this voucher for a free eyebrow shaping treatment worth £18. But I don't live near any of the locations that they do it, so I'd like to give it to one of my readers.

Vichy Dermablend Colour Correctors Review

 I love a good bit of colour correcting, it's a great technique to have in your arsenal if you like a really flawless, polished look, and don't mind adding in the extra step or two to get there.

April Favourites

Putting my blog second place is making me really sad! But I am back with another Monthly Favourites, and it's a big one.

What's New from YSL? | Haul & Review

There's lots of luxury make up brands, and I think only up until the past couple of years, YSL beauty wasn't quite as 'up there' in terms of quality and choice as other really luxury brands like Chanel or Guerlain.

Photo Shoot: Purple Flowers

Spring has finally sprung!....right into Summer. Honestly I'm not happy about it. It was 33 degrees yesterday, which I wouldn't mind in July or August, but I'm not prepared for it right now.

At-Home IPL Hair Removal: Smoothskin Bare Review | + GIVEAWAY

Winter transitioning to Spring generally means the rude awakening that it's leg shaving season. You haven't bothered to keep up with the hair removal since mid October and you've mutated into a Wookie. If only there was a way to avoid these things...

NEW Cover FX Power Play Foundation REVIEW

I have been a long time fan of Cover FX's Custom Cover Drops and their Cover Click, so when I saw they were launching a new complexion product - Power Play Foundation* - I knew I had to try it.

Miracle Product: Aquis Hair Towel

This is the first post in a new series on the blog called Miracle Product. In these posts, I will be singling out a particular product which has instantly and dramatically improved my life in some way. Without further ado, let's chat about a towel.

What the fuck is a toxic friend anyway?

A phrase that seems to have grown popular lately that doesn't really sit well with me is "toxic friend". Whilst my reaction is scratching my head in confusion, it seems to resonate with a lot of people, but I personally think it's a harmful and counterproductive way of dealing with friendships that have turned sour.

NEW Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter Review

I'm finally back with another post! I've had so much planned, even around uni work, but then a nasty  chest infection got in the way. Moving swiftly on, today I'm talking about the new Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter

NEW #PixiPretties Collaboration Collection

Pixi have recently collaborated with three content creators to bring out a collection of stunning products. There's enough here to keep you glowing and blushing from dawn to dusk!

Green Beauty Haul

We're all becoming a lot more conscious of our environment and the way our lifestyle impacts upon it lately, aren't we? When I'm shopping for beauty products, it's definitely a bonus if a product is vegan, cruelty free, zero waste or made from recycled materials, etc.

Ultimate Homeware & Accessories Wish List

So this little homeware and accessories wish list that I've put together is like every bloggers wet dream: blush pink, gold, acrylic storage? GIMME!

March Favourites

It is I, back for another monthly favourites! March seems to have come and gone so quick, especially because I was barely at uni because of the strikes, and now April is full steam ahead with deadlines!

Product Empties February - March

I have so many beauty products that it's difficult for me to use that many up to the very last drop. The true test of how much I enjoy something is if I'm able to do that - because it has so much competition!

Support an Independent Beauty Brand

Let's talk about two of my passions: supporting independent businesses, and beauty.

Good Beauty Habits to Get Into

I'm all about the extra steps in a beauty routine. I'm really not a slap dash, get-up-and-go kind of gal. I'm more than happy to spend time on my beauty routine, in fact, I enjoy it - having a routine is therapeutic.   Here's some of the beauty habits I've gotten into that are small changes to my daily life, but have quite a big impact.

Same eye make up, two eye colours

I love make up; I love playing with colour - I really do! I love to create different looks with eyeshadow, blush and a bit of lipstick. But, for a bit of change of pace, I've collaborated with Feel Good Contacts to try changing my eye colour.

Lashes, Liner & Brows | Picks from Eyeko

If I had to sum up the brand Eyeko in three words, I'd say: stylish, trustworthy, expert. Eyeko makes specifically eye make up (hence the name), from their eyeshadow sticks to their range of six mascaras

Photo Shoot: Bridge

This shoot was a little out of my comfort zone. I mean, as someone who usually creates portraits with an airy, ultra feminine vintage vibe, underneath a motorway bridge doesn't really sound like somewhere you're likely to find me taking photographs, does it?

Becca Cosmetics Haul & First Impressions

Well, the beauty bargain hunter has struck again! I managed to save some £££ on this Becca haul, by shopping Space NK with £15 off a £60 spend, and then landing an incredibly good value set on QVC.

Anastasia Liquid Lipstick Collection + Giveaway

I am a big fan of liquid lipsticks, and by now I've tried a tonne of them. Hands down, my all time favourites are the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks - so I thought we'd take a look at my collection!

NEW Laura Geller Illuminator Duos | Review

Highlighter lovers haven't been short of glow options the past couple of years, but these new High Def Illuminator Duos* from Laura Geller are definitely something to get excited about!

Photo Shoot: Snowy Tuesday

A couple of weeks ago, the UK experienced an unusually cold spell and quite a heavy snowfall - which we haven't seen in several years. It was a winter wonderland all week, and one day (it was a Tuesday, how did you know?) my friend Bobbi and I braved the snow to take some photographs.

Luxury Beauty Launches To Look Out For | Spring 2018

Part and parcel of being a make up junkie extraordinaire is that you're constantly scrolling through the 'new in beauty' section and practically dribbling. Here's some new launches that I am especially excited about. 

Wednesday, 7 March 2018

My Rodial Skincare Favourites

Recently, I've been using a lot of Rodial in my routine. I first became interested in the brand when I saw a couple of products at a bargain price (which you can find out more about here) and have been pretty much, well, hooked.

Nars Spring 2018 Collection | My Picks & Review

I love Nars. Have I mentioned that before? (*wink*) I dug into my purse as soon as I saw the launch of their Spring 2018 collection, I didn't buy everything but there was some things I couldn't not have!

Saturday, 3 March 2018

Winter Skin Favourites

I wasn't going to write this as I thought it'd be too late in the year, what with it being March and all. But given the ridiculous weather we've had over the past few days, "the beast from the East" - I thought I'd go ahead and get typing. 

Friday, 2 March 2018

February Favourites

I know its very cliche to say this at this point, but when January seemed to last about 9 weeks, February seems to have been like 7 days! I literally just yesterday said to my boyfriend that I thought it was the 19th. 

Friday, 23 February 2018

Eyeshadow Sticks | A Look In My Stash

Eyeshadow sticks are staples in my collection, hence why I have so many! I've gone through all of them to show you my stash, because I really am a huge fan of the stick form eyeshadow and I think everyone needs one or two!

New Make Up Launches Anti-Haul

I'm not typically one for an anti-haul, mainly because I'm usually that person that is first in line to buy the new launches. However, recently it just feels like there's been so many new launches even I can't keep up!

Monday, 19 February 2018

NEW Tarte Shape Tape Foundations Review

Following the crazy success of their Shape Tape concealer, Tarte recently launched their Shape Tape Foundation in two formulas: matte and hydrating. I've been putting both to the test!

Can We Stop Pug Bashing? | Cat the Vet RANT

Please excuse the intermission from the typical programme of lipstick and blush to make way for this rant about something that's quite close to my heart. 

Monday, 12 February 2018

Photo Shoot: Georgie in February

Georgie and I ventured out together to shoot for the first time since November, and I think it's fair to say it's long over due! (So selfish of her to be busy, isn't it?)

Why You Shouldn't Reply #Agree

I think every blogger - actually, every person with an Instagram account - has been in the situation where they've had a big brand comment on their image requesting they use it, prompting you to reply "#Agree" (or something to that effect).

Personal Post: I Was In A Car Accident | AD

I think this is the first (and probably only) personal post I've ever written on here. It makes a change from the usual programme of lipsticks and glitter, I suppose.
