My 2018 essentials

We’re not quite at the end of the year yet but I think I’m firmly in the position to give you my must have items of the year. I’ve tried to include something in every category 🙂 Foundation- Bobbi Brown Stick Foundation ( £32) My standout foundation of the year has to be the Bobbi…

Color correctors- hit or miss?

If your anything like me, a color corrector is pretty much a staple item. My nemeses are my under eye bags ( shift life catching up with me) and dark pigmentation from when I pick at my skin. I have yellow undertones and realise fully that the color correctors that work for me may not…

The Season to Sparkle

Christmas is approaching and in the world of beauty we all know what that means. Glitter, glitter and more glitter. Although, I’ve never fancied myself as a sparkle kinda gal, I feel like even I can get on board this time of year. So just for you, I have been trying out a few of…

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…

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…

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…

Naked Vault

I’m an avid collector of the Urban Decay Naked palettes. If you don’t own them, you need to. I own the original Naked, Naked 3, Naked Heat, Naked on the Run and the Naked Ultimate Basics. (I won’t talk too much about the Naked Ultimate Basics as I did a recent post on it). Naked…

As much as I love high-end makeup, who can resist a bargain! On that note I found myself stocking up on drug store makeup and thought I would share my first impressions with you 🙂   L’Oreal Paris Glam Bronze La Terra sun powder face and body-£12 What attracted me to this initially was the…
