Drugstore Brands; Five of my Favourites

My favourite drugstore makeup brands When it comes to makeup, my heart will always be at the drugstore. I do not believe in buying something simply for the name; a car still gets you from A to B no matter what the name it has. I also carry this value throughout my makeup collection. My…

Summer lipsticks; Ten Favourites

When it comes to summer lipsticks, opinions can be divided. Do you go nude and natural or do you inject some pops of colour? Do you go lipstick or gloss? Many people just dab on some lip balm and forego the lipstick step of their makeup. As the temperatures rise, so does our dislike for…

Top Five Eye Shadow Palettes; Find Out My Favourites

Eyeshadow was my first love What are my top five eyeshadow palettes? As a child growing up in the 1980’s, the eyeshadow was always bright, colourful and made a statement. I remember watching people on TV with multi-coloured, over the top eyeshadow and wanting desperately wanting to recreate. Many of my favourite palettes are bold,…

Foundation Review; The Good, The Bad and The Smelly.

Foundation review As I said in my base makeup routine, a good foundation that works with your skin is paramount. There is no point in having a perfect Wing or beautiful eyeshadow looks if you’re foundation is letting you down. Finding the right foundation is an absolute minefield. Not only do you have the task…

Be Barefaced; Brand Focus Review

How I discovered Be Barefaced? I was on the hunt for a facial oil and discovered Be Barefaced. I was talking to a friend who is addicted to skin care on a women’s Facebook group and she quickly recommended Be Barefaced. She told me I could buy their products on Amazon. Being an Amazon prime…

Beauty Haul; what have I been buying?

June haul; Superdrug, Marks and Spencer, B & M, Face theory and Be Barefaced. I do declare that this is the first beauty haul in a while. Now that I am on ‘project use up’ I have saved up my purchases up over a couple months. At this time last year, I would have been…

Winging it; Epic Eyeliner Review

Anyone you knows me knows how addicted to eyeliner I am; I love the stuff and cannot exist without my trusty wing as my homage to eyeliner, to wing or not to wing, demonstrated.

Stylpro Review

What is the style pro?
Before the Stylpro, washing your makeup brushes meant getting your hands full of soapy water and rubbing your brushes on some sort of silicone mat that looks like a strange massage device. Cleaning your makeup brushes regularly is a vital and important step which avoids bacteria build-up, possible infection or contamination of your make-up products.

Spring Nail Polish

Bringing out the Spring Nail Polishes A change is not necessarily a bad thing, especially when it comes to embracing Spring. There are two different types of beauty addict; those who wear their favourite colours/shades all year round and those that change with the season. Of those two I am more of the later; I…

Superdrug, Beauty Bay and Primark haul

Another haul; Superdrug, Beauty Bay  and Primark I know, I said I would be shopping anymore. I have done well to curb the amount I spend on makeup but a few things slipped through the net in what was an absolutely horrendously busy month. I feel like this haul, apart from a few luxury items has been a practical collective shop. This…
