Hey lovelies,

So many of you probably don’t know but about 3 months ago I turned vegan. Before you scroll down and press unfollow, I really want you all to know that I’m not the preachy type. If anyone wants to know more about why I turned vegan or more information on veganism please feel free to email me or message me directly but I dont feel the need to talk about it without being asked. My blog isn’t going to change, except I wont be promoting non vegan products. Which leads me nicely onto today’s  post. Continue reading

Primark makeup sponge review

IMG_9803

Hey lovelies,

So as you probably saw from my last blog post, I have recently popped into Primark. Whilst I was there, I was really intrigued by the makeup section. I have heard so many different things about the Primark beauty range and I just had to give something a go for myself. Now I used to be obsessed with my Real Techniques sponge, and i used it every single time I wore makeup. After a while though, no matter how much you wash it, it gets rather dirty, the stains stop coming out and overall it doesn’t seem particularly hygienic. So I ended up throwing away my beloved sponge and just never seem to repurchase it. So anyway, when I saw this pack of 4 sponges for £2.50 (absolute bargain am i right?) I just had to grab them – and in my basket they went.

Now I have been testing out these sponges for just over a week and I’m going to write about my final verdict here for you. Continue reading

Now although I haven’t completely mastered the technique yet, I would say what I have come up with is a nice makeup look that is definitely wearable and quite easy to do to. If you’re intrigued then keep reading to find out how I do it. Continue reading

Saying goodbye to winter lipsticks, and hello to spring lipsticks!

Lipsticks.jpg

Due to the lovely weather we’ve been having recently, I’ve noticed that I have been gravitating more towards my spring lipsticks. These poor lipsticks haven’t even had their lids taken off in over 6 months, so I thought I would show you some of my favourites from the passing winter and some I am hoping to be getting a lot of use out of over the next few months.

My eyebrow routine

Today my blog post is going to be all about the hot topic at the moment. Eyebrows. It’s amazing how we’ve gone from 90’s hardly-there brows, to today’s full and bushy brows. Luckily for me I was never one for getting a bit tweezer happy, so I guess in today’s eyebrow ideal I’m quite fortunate. Nevertheless I’m sure one day we’ll go back to having paper thin brows all over again. Continue reading

Review of Bare Minerals BareSkin Foundation

bareminerals

Today I am writing a review of the Bare Minerals BareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation (mouthful- amirite?).

This is Bare Minerals’ ‘first ever mineral foundation and skincare serum in one’. It is ‘ultra-thin’ and provides ‘adjustable coverage’. I would definitely agree with all that Bare Minerals has to say about this foundation. As I am going to show you, it is a foundation that builds up beautifully but still feels completely weightless and looks like skin (great right?!). Continue reading

Daytime bronze makeup

Today I am going to be writing about how to recreate this daytime bronzey makeup look.

Starting with moisturized skin, the first makeup product I used was the Bare Minerals BareSkin serum foundation in Bare Linen 03. I buff 2 drops of this into the skin with my Spectrum B01 foundation brush. I will be doing a review on this foundation in the coming week, so keep your eyes peeled for that! Continue reading

Lush Ultrabland Review

So this is going to be a rather chatty review on one of my absolute holy grail skin care products. The ‘Ultrabland’ facial cleanser by Lush.

Now on my journey to using cruelty free products I realized I needed a new way to take my makeup off. I had recently ventured away from the face wipes and started looking into better ways to clean my skin. I had started using Micellar water and that had been going great. My problem came when I was trying to find a cruelty free option that didn’t break the bank. I happened to be watching a YouTube video (sorry can’t remember who) and it was all about their favourite Lush products. They then mentioned, my now beloved, ‘Ultrabland’. Continue reading
