My Ten Minute Makeup Look; video tutorial

What can you do in ten minutes? Could you do the ten minute makeup challenge? This challenge has been around in the makeup community for a while. The idea is to put on a full face of makeup in just ten minutes or under. I have been reflecting on the makeup I have been wearing…

Shame on you; Why do people shame others?

Shame is all around As a society, we have always been susceptible to making judgements on others. The rise of social media and the internet has made the passing of judgement on people, situations and life in general much easier. Furthermore, my own blog is a way of me informing people; in the hope that…

Summer Makeup Video Tutorial: Arabian Nights

It has been a while since I did a makeup tutorial. I thought I would take the opportunity to do my face and video the process at the same time. When I planned a summer makeup look I wanted to move away from the bolder and mermaid inspired tutorials. I took the inspiration for this…

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…

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…

Project Pan Revenge; learning from panning.

Why would I want to project pan? When I first heard the term project pan and the concept around that I thought it was a bit ludicrous. Why would anybody want to hit pan on any of their makeup products,? I thought it made the makeup look ugly; as opposed to being the way it was when I first bought it….

My Travel Makeup Bag

I am somewhat of a home bird, preferring the comforts of my own home rather than venturing to different places. Occasionally, I do have to travel and packing is one of the main things that I dislike, especially when it comes to packing my makeup for travelling. If I had the opportunity, I would have taken my whole makeup box on holiday with me to visit family in Colchester but I doubt Mr T would have been too impressed by that, plus it would have been a little excessive considering that the car was already packed to the brim with other essentials. 

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…
