I guess you could say this review has been a long time coming, I always mention this as my daily foundation but the only review I’ve done on it was three years ago when it first came out! It’s actually pretty hilarious, so if you fancy a laugh you can read it here. I first started using Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation (£32) when it came out three or so years ago, I remember it was a big deal in the…

It’s that time again, I’m giving you a tour of my monthly makeup bag and I feel the November edition is quite predictable for me! Expect dewy skin, nude lips and a burst of berry tones on the cheeks… My love for the NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser (£29.50) hasn’t wavered, I love the finish and texture of this and it’s so concealing for something that doesn’t offer full coverage.

Everything from the brand is packed full of lovely ingredients from all over New Zealand, so they really are a treat to use. I try and apply the brilliant Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask (£21.50) as often as possible, it’s a moisture…

Wearing Dark Lips.

3 November, 2014

I have to say that I wasn’t a big fan of wearing dark lips until recently – and now I can’t get enough! It’s taken me until the age of 23 (a month shy of 24) to get used to wearing vibrant colours on my lips, so I thought I’d share some tips and tricks for anyone in the same boat. My lips are usually in pretty bad condition, not chapped but not looking too healthy either! I always start…
