In this age of contouring and highlighting to within an inch of your life to get the perfect Instagram selfie; one thing has been neglected at the bottom of the makeup drawer, blusher.
I know it wasn’t long since I did my ‘Sugarpill haul’ but I was meeting up with my very dear friend who I used to work with and we decided to take a trip into Manchester for a spot of shopping and lunch, how could I refuse that proposition?
My name is Mrs T and I have an addiction to confess of which I have been trying to detox from for the past few months. I have been, for the past two years, addicted to shopping on Beauty Bay.

I never hired a makeup artist to do my wedding makeup, partly due to being on a budget, but mainly because I wanted to do my own makeup.
Do you want it all; smooth, blemish free skin, no wrinkles, a thinner face, perfect angled brows, larger lips or even a change of eye colour?

I hit pan
I have had my Modern Renaissance palette by Anastacia Beverly Hills for about 8 month and I finally hit pan on one of the shades, I felt like I had won £2 pound on a scratch card or a free caramel frappe.
