Growing Grey Disgracefully 

I haven’t really been blessed in the hair department; I was practically bald until I was three years old, it is so straight that it will not hold a curl and worst of all, I have been going grey since I was twenty-one.
I started dying my hair at the age of fourteen, I was desperate for red hair when I was a teenager and have been dying it red for about 20 years on and off. As you can imagine, after fifteen years of my hair gradually going grey it is fair to say it is very noticeable when my roots grow out.

Is the Beauty World Honest?

I would immediately answer with a responding no, the beauty world is not honest at times and that is usually down to one reason money. The majority of beauty brands and many influencers are working for one goal, to make money,

ABH Subculture Drama.

Editorial Eyeliner

I remember about a year ago when I was first starting to take makeup really seriously, I was doing a live on a Facebook group doing a typical blended out gradient effect green eye that has become a bit of a signature look for me; when someone on the chat said ‘make it editorial’, I was like what in the blazes are you going on about? 

10 Things I Dislike About Beauty

I feel like this post needs no introduction, it speaks for itself.
Hair removal
This has definitely got to be the most irritating thing I have to do in the name of beauty. Whether you shave, wax or pluck, hair removal is literally the pits (excuse the pun).

Here Comes the Bridal Makeup

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. 

Filtered Beyond Reality

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? This sounds too good to be true, probably because it is, but when we look at pictures in magazines and on social media we think ‘That model/actress looks perfect, I wish I looked like that.’

Project Pan; A Sign of Guilt?

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.

Anti Haul; What I’m Not Going to Buy Part 1

The concept of an ‘anti haul’ was created by the very funny and talented Kimberly Clark for her YouTube channel in a response to the rising amount of consumerist content that was flooding the beauty community and YouTube.

Confessions of a Beauty Addict

It is hard to deny that I am now a full blown makeup addict, this started around two years ago (How My Makeup Addiction Started) when I suddenly realised I wanted to do something to make myself feel good

Have We Had Too Much Jeffree Star?

After writing my post on beauty Guru’s (Are Beauty Guru’s Bad Influencers) it got me thinking about their journeys’. Quite a few of these influencers have an their own journey’s; from humble beginnings filming in their bedroom and using what they could manage to gather on their day job earnings.  One influencer that has always…

Are Beauty Guru’s Bad Influencers? 

As you might know, there has been some controversy surrounding certain ‘influencers’ on YouTube. (Too much drama in makeup) There is a growing trend of people questioning the ‘integrity’ of influencers in the beauty world and calling into question whether or not their opinion on products is genuine or an elabourate plan to make the unsuspecting public to part with their hard earned money.
