The Perfect Festive Lip

It’s December tomorrow, so it is officially Christmas. As far as makeup is concerned, December is THE time for a red lip, and I think I have found the perfect one. I’d never tried Smashbox lipsticks before, but I have always been a fan of the brand for other items. So, I read a few…

The months of Autumn have been whizzing by, so now we are back to another monthly favourites post! So here’s a few things that I was loving throughout Halloween month: I featured the Bluebird Tea Company’s Pumpkin Pie tea in a recent ‘Autumn’ blog post, and I have been loving it throughout October. It’s such…

Violet Voss Holy Grail palette: review

Recently I decided to get the Violet Voss Holy Grail palette, so I thought I’d give a review of the palette today. I spent ages looking at different palettes searching for a new ‘everyday’ palette, holding all the shades that I could use to create loads of different looks, and I came across this one….

Making the last of the Summer glow 

Summer makeup for me is mainly focused on two things: bronze and glow. The Summer months are the perfect opportunity to experiment with more bronzers and highlighters to maximise your natural tone, so I thought I’d show you some of my favourite products that can help you cheat that summer glow whilst we head into…

Skincare duo // Pixi Beauty

I am definitely a skin care addict. Anything that says ‘glow’ ‘hydrate’ or ‘brighten’ on the packaging screams out to me, therefore I knew I had to get these two products from Pixi Beauty. I’d heard of the brand before, after trying their double cleanse which they created as a collaboration with Caroline Hirons, and…

The Body Shop Banana hair mask

I’m naturally a brunette, however last Christmas I decided to change my hair up a bit, gradually adding more and more blonde up to this Summer. Although loving the shade, both the touch ups every two months or so, and using straighteners a lot had really damaged the quality of my hair, creating split ends…

Current fave lipsticks: Autumn 17

However, I’ve whittled it down to four favourites for the upcoming months. In order: Colourpop Lippie Stix: Grunge- This is a more brown toned…

IT Cosmetics // CC Cream – the wonder product.

I originally heard of this product due to watching many youtube videos, from Kathleen Lights to Lily Pebbles recommending it because of its amazing properties. Now I know why. Described as a “full coverage colour-correcting cream with anti-ageing hydrating serum”, this CC cream promotes itself as “Your skin but better” in a tube. This CC…

Morphe 12NB // budget and travel friendly.

After my usual browse over on BeautyBay (a must for those searching for some rare American brands), I came across the Morphe 12NB, a small, warm-toned eyeshadow palette. Seen as I stay over at my boyfriend’s house half of the time, I find myself transporting my makeup regularly, so finding this smaller but versatile palette…
