I have no shame in admitting I was late to the game in realising the brushes you use make a real difference to your make up game. I thought I would share the brushes I can’t live without. Warning in advance-this post is very Zoeva heavy but they really do make amazing affordable brushes.  …

My 5 most under-rated beauty items

Ever had those beauty items that you use daily, but don’t give a second thought?

Skincare Saviours

I have to admit I’ve always been fairly lucky where my skin is concerned. I’ve never really had acne or massive breakouts.

So last week, while sitting in hospital (long story) I had an epiphany. My skin improved dramatically…

Top 5 Nude Lipsticks

I don’t think there’s any makeup lover in the world who doesn’t love a good lipstick  .Theres so many different colours and finishes that you can’t really go wrong. I go through phases of what shades I’m loving but right now I tend to gravitate towards a brown nude in a matte finish. If you too…

ABH Amrezy Highlight

Nothing grabs my attention like a brand spanking new highlight. Highlighters are my kryptonite. I own more than any sane person would ever need. But it makes me so happy to look at their glowy goodness. That being said I jumped on the limited edition ABH release. I find ABH products a bit hit and…

Drug store Heroes

I’m going to be bold and say it. 2018 is the year of the drug store! I’m definitely a makeup snob and have always preferred the more high-end brands. However there’s no denying that the drug store is really stepping up their game. Things I’ve been loving : L’Oréal Infallible Shaping Stick Admittedly I didn’t…

Step1- Use an oil to encourage dirt to the surface of the skin. Step 2-Use a water based cleanser to remove the dirt. Seems…

Urban Decay Naked Petite Heat

I loved the Urban Decay Heat palette. Hands down, my favourite palette of last year. So when Urban Decay announced a petite version, I literally could not wait. I ordered mine directly from the Urban Decay website. It retails for £26, so fairly wallet friendly. It came beautifully packaged in a purple embossed box. Slightly…

Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics

Urban Decay stand out to me because of their high quality, intense, creamy eyeshadow pigments. I have no shame in admitting I own every one of the Naked palettes and swear by them.

Tarte shape tape dupe!

It’s no secret that I absolutely love the Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer. It’s full coverage, super long wearing and does not crease.
