Beauty Favourites 2016 vs 2019

Some makeup trends come and go, others stick around and as the year is coming to a close I wanted to share my beauty favourites, but I’ve added a twist – comparing the products I loved in 2016 to the ones I have been loving this year! In 2016, my makeup collection definitely wasn’t what it is now! I really used to have one of everything and that was pretty much it! The question is, will any products have stuck around..?

End of Year Makeup Declutter & Donation 2018


Hello everyone, I hope you are having a fab festive season! I have been busy wrapping presents and getting as much uni work done before tomorrow so I can relax for a few days! Every 6 months or so I like to go through my collection and really have a good sort out of what I’ve been using, what may have expired and makeup I just haven’t reached for. So with the end of year fast approaching I emptied my entire makeup collection onto my bedroom floor and went through everything.

Full Face of Drugstore Faves 2018

Hello everyone! Today I am doing a blog post that I don’t think I have done before; a full face using my favourite products from the drugstore! It could also be called My Staple Drugstore Products, but companies are always evolving and bringing out something new. So it’s difficult to say this one thing will always be my staple when it might not be in a few months time. Some are more mid-range within the drugstore but they can all be bought for under £15! So without further ado here is a makeup look using all my current favourites!

I decided to use a green liner as I don’t have a drugstore black one that I love, and I love to use the Vivid Brights from NYX as they are easy to use and add a pop of colour to any makeup look!

Cloud Inspired Makeup Look

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.

July & August Haul 2018

Over the last few months I have unintentionally bought quite a few new bits of makeup and so thought I would share what I have accumulated over the last few months! I did a haul in June and since then I have been away a few times and treated myself to a few goodies I have been eyeing up for a while.

At the beginning of July I went to Edinburgh and it was such an amazing time, you can check out Day One Day Two, Day Three and Day Four if you want to see what we got up to! During that trip away I bought a few things and was gifted a few for doing well in my HNC. I picked up the Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Concealer in Porcelain from Space NK. I don’t live near a Space NK and had been looking for a new concealer for a while. I had seen a few good reviews on this concealer and it was a good shade for my skin tone.
