My Daily Makeup Routine

My Daily Makeup Routine

Hi everyone! I’m in a rut – a makeup rut, to be precise. But hey, why fix something that ain’t broken, right? It may be a bit boring to go for the same products every single day, but it also saves a lot of time in the morning. As I haven’t done a proper makeup post in a while now,… Read more →

YSL Le Teint Touché Eclat

YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat

A few weeks ago the lovely people from House of Fraser were kind enough to send me a fabulous package filled with a ton of beauty and fragrance samples for me to try – eye cream, moisturizer, foundation…you name it.

Winged Eyeliner - A Love Story?

Winged Eyeliner – A Love Story?

Winged Eyeliner and I, we don’t always love each other. We’ve had a pretty serious and loving relationship around ten years ago, parted and then rekindled for a while during my time at university. We then decided that “us” wasn’t going to work out after all and said our goodbyes knowing that, one fine day, we’d see each other again.… Read more →

The Hourglass Face

The Hourglass Face

Makeup from Hourglass Cosmetics is really pricey, and yet so fabulous that you mindlessly purchase a primer serum for £62 without even knowing what it’s supposed to do…at least I do. Most famous for its Ambient Lighting Powders, a true pioneer at the time of release, and the long-lasting Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipsticks, Hourglass is a cruelty-free company (i.e. they… Read more →

Battle Of The Brows

Battle Of The Brows

Two things I’ve learned from the Battle Of The Brows: 1. I must have had some awful looking eyebrows in the past. Did I know nothing about colour matching brow products to my eyebrows? 2. I’m just generally awful at filling in my eyebrows. Two facts I was completely unaware of until I looked at the pictures for this blog… Read more →
