There are two things in life we really, really can’t ever be bothered to do. One is changing our bed sheets (seriously, do people enjoy this?) and the other is washing our makeup brushes. There are countless cleansers on the market that claim to clean our brushes perfectly and end up running out within a few washes. How do you clean your brushes? The thing is with makeup, the different ingredients react with different cleansers.…

Although the weather might not reflect it, summer is upon us. My beauty routine is definitely reflecting that! My skin is dewy, my lips are bright and my highlight is glowing. I like every part of my beauty routine to reflect the season I’m in and this year I’ve been looking after my body using these two beautiful gift sets from The Body Shop. Both the Piñita Colada Gift Set (Piñita Colada Shower Gel 250ml, Piñita…

You can’t achieve a great smokey eye without the perfect blending brush, or the most flush cheeks without a blush brush that *just* fits the apple of your cheeks just right. Beau Belle has been sweeping Instagram a lot lately, I’m sure you’ve seen these beautiful brushes already. With their copper handles and monochrome bristles, it’s every blogger’s dream.…

Fleur De Force is one of those beauty gurus where if she says something its good, I’ll take her word as gospel. I’ve followed her for a long time now and I know that if she puts her name on anything, she believes in the product and trusts it. Her lash collection with Eylure is a staple in my lash-wardrobe. Each set I love and wear on the regular, they’re so subtle and beautiful. Favourite.…

As any makeup lover knows that your lips are an essential part of finish off a makeup look. It can make or break your makeup look and I love experimenting with different lip colours, finishes and textures. Making sure our lips not only look good but also feel good is super vital. It’s a sad fact that our lips can often get overlooked when we are doing our facial care routine. We have a special…

We all have those weekends where we’d much rather sit in our pyjamas than go out. I do love going out with my friends and taking the time to get dressed up, but sometimes a simple night in can be just as good. Armed with a Netflix account and some Night-In staples, I know just how to make my cozy night in a perfect one. Step One: Snacks No night in is complete without a…

From the moment my eyes set upon the pretty packaging of the Tartelette In Bloom palette, I knew I had to have it. I didn’t even care if the inside could be colours I’d never use or that it, you know, might not actually be any good. I just HAD to have it in my life, it’s the prettiest thing ever! Purples, pinks, golds. Right up my street. Even the name is gorgeous. After eyeing…

Oh Boots, the place I pop in for toothpaste and walk out with a whole new makeup line. I love you, but you’re very tempting. I have no willpower!

Spectrum have taken the social media world my storm, with the most Instagrammable brushes on the market. It’s impossible for me to scroll through my feed without seeing at least one post featuring them. They certainly know what their customers want as they are coming out with such gorgeous collections that are being snapped up very quickly. Buying new brushes can be tricky, buying individually it can get incredibly expensive and buying a set most likely…

Oh liquid lipsticks, how I love them. If you read my post on the Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte review, you will see that they have changed the way I think about the traditional lipstick. As I am writing this, I have four tabs open on my browser – (not so) patiently waiting for the current Jeffree Star restock on Cocktail Cosmetics of Rose Matters, Celebrity Skin and Mannequin. That may give you a little hint as to…

I’ve abandoned buying the usual bullet lipsticks, truly given up. I’ve tried almost everything and NOTHING stays on my lips. Ever. No matter what I try or how much I spend, which annoys me to no end. I love Mac lipsticks and I find their colour choice insane, but their mattes are drying on me and incredibly smudgy. The whole liquid lipstick craze has been around for a few years now, but until recently the…
