Social media is fast becoming my way of shopping, seeing what other beauty lovers have been using and loving. More often than not I’ll see a product be used by multiple beauty lovers, all raving about how good it is. Which often leads me to look at online reviews/see the product in-store to see if it’s worth adding to my collection. Especially if I’ve been after a new product to try i.e. concealer. I have done a few other Youtube Made Me Buy It (see #1 here and #2 here), as it’s been a while since I did my last one, here’s the latest products I’ve bought thanks to social media!Continue reading
I have never done a blog post like this, mainly because I’ve always struggled with foundations. So I thought I would share the high end and drugstore foundations I like to use! Before we get into the foundations I like to use, I’ll disclaim that my skin is combination with dry areas on cheeks and oiliness on my t-zone. My skin tone is neutral and I don’t like dewy/glowy foundations.Continue reading
Hello, I hope you’re having a fab week. I have spent mine working on the last few bits ready for my last week at uni next week! Todays post is something a bit different, I have never done anything like this before in my blog. It’s all my fave high end products that I think are worth the splurge! I don’t often purchase high end makeup, often I read reviews and see if it’s worth spending coin on. So when I find a high end product that is worth the money, it’s a win win!read more
Hello everyone! I hope you are all smashing your week! I have had the Becca Aqua Luminous Concealer for a while and had been meaning to write this post fo a while. For a while I was on the hunt for a high end concealer, I wanted to treat myself and whilst I was in Edinburgh last summer I finally found one that matched my skin tone, you can see what other goodies I got here. As someone who has a pale complexion with a neutral undertone, it can be difficult to find a pale concealer that isn’t yellow or pink toned. Many high end brands seem to do two pale concealers – one with a yellow undertone and the other pink. Or that are just look orange on me. So when Becca’s Aqua Luminous was a match I knew it was meant to be.Continue reading

Hello everyone, with the weather becoming somewhat colder and the skies greyer it inspired me to do this smokey eye I saw Desi Perkins do on her channel. It reminded me of the cloudy skies we’ve been having here in the UK.
Starting with the smokey eyes using a charcoal grey and black on the outer corner, smoking it out to a cat eye before adding on a shimmering grey on the lid of the eye. Blending out the charcoal grey and black on the lower lash line too. I then added lashes and black liner on water line. I then did the rest of my makeup, keeping the lips neutral to focus the look on the eyes.Continue reading
Hello everyone! I can’t believe how cold it’s been here in the UK, as a result I have been suffering from a cold over the last week. It needs to hurry up and go! Anyway onto todays post I have all the makeup and skincare I’ve used up over the last 3 months! This year I have been doing empties every three months instead of every two like I did last year, making this one the penultimate one before the end of the year. Which is mad to think about as there is so much of the year left!
