A Little Bit of Selfcare

Hello everyone, today’s post is something a bit different. I for one am guilty of not giving myself enough me time. Mainly because I’ve been super busy and life can get in the way sometimes. But having said that there is nothing better than having a full on pamper session in the evening (or any time of the day)!   It makes me feel so relaxed and ready for what the next week has to bring! I have been trying to have at least a few hours a week just for me, it’s so important to give time to yourself to recharge and to not have everything constantly whirling around on a never ending to do list! So here are the things I like to do just for me!

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

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.

What’s In My Travel Bag – Summer 2018 Edition

In my two years of blogging I have never done a post like this. Over the past few weeks  I have had a lot of weekends away, so thought I would share with you what products I take away with me! Personally I only like to take makeup I know is going to work and that I love. This way I know when I’m getting ready I haven’t got to worry about anything creasing or smudging or looking like a hot mess. Plus I don’t like to spend too long on my makeup for the day as I want to be out exploring and making the most of my time off!
