October Monthly Favourites ft. Naruko, Bare Minerals + NYX

I’ve told you time and time again that Favourites are my favourite to write (along with my Empties post) and somehow, if it were possible, this is the most exciting one I have to share with you! Perhaps it’s due to the fact that this month, it’s much more makeup-heavy than usual (I tend to be more skincare-heavy) and so I’m exploring new heights. I’ve been so excited for autumn/winter and for once in my life, I’m incredibly into makeup. I mean, I’ve been on a makeup frenzy. I’m generally quite simple with my makeup but a few Mondays ago, I just went for it. I felt like getting a whole load of nude lip colours and I’ve been exploring eyeshadow more too. Don’t hesitate to check out my beauty haul to see what else I got! 🙂 Featured in this post: Naruko Rose & Botanic HA Aqua Cubic Hydrating Mask EX Bare Minerals Bare Pro Liquid Foundation in ‘Warm Natural 12’ Maybelline Color Tattoo in ‘On and On Bronze’ NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in ‘Cannes’ …

The Beauty Clean-Up #7 (empties) | HUGE Edition Once Again!

Whoa there. #7? It feels like I’m going through these at a faster rate, the more I go through them! This month has just been empties after empties. It’s interesting because I have this thing where I wait for all of my to-be-empties to actually be empties before I go and make a post about it. I can’t just go and talk about 10 and leave 3 hanging! I did say that this was a clean-up after all, didn’t I? Enjoy! + Would repurchase – Will not bother again = Neutral/Indifferent + L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Detox Wash + Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm = Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Oil – La Roche-Posay Serozinc + The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin = The Ordinary Buffet + Tonymoly Intense Care Snail Hydro-gel Mask + The Cure Green Tea Collagen Essence Mask + Neogen Milk Cream Essential Mask + Neogen Black Caviar Essential Mask = La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL + Dr Organic Aloe Vera Gel + Cien Soft Make-Up Pads + Batiste Dry Shampoo in ‘Cherry’ …

5 Beauty Products I Took To Berlin

Before I went to Berlin for a 5-day trip, I had thought to create a post on what I was taking beauty-wise (skincare and makeup). Skincare planning did not go to waste and in fact – I thought I did rather well. (Upcoming post on that soon!) But on the makeup front, I have to admit that I didn’t use everything that I brought with me. It’s silly really, and somehow I do this every time. It’s almost like I have an irrational fear of not having enough makeup with me on my travels! So today, I’m showing you the exact 5 products that I did use during the whole course of my trip to sport a less is more look. Featured in this post: Bobbi Brown SPF 50 Protective Face Base Etude House Drawing Eyebrow Duo in 1 Dark Brown L’Oréal A Million Lashes Waterproof Mascara Dior Addict Lipstick in 871 Power Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Pressed Powder in Pale Yellow I believe all of these products have been previously featured in my favourites post, which …

Review: Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette (Beauty Glow)

You may have read my July Monthly Favourites recently, in which case, if you did, you would have seen that the Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette (Beauty Glow) was featured in it. It’s no secret then that this is going to be a positive review! But hear me out – this is a big deal for me in many ways. For one, it’s the first palette that I can make use of 100%. The rest? You’ll have to read below! What is it? It’s marketed as an all-in-one palette that achieves a look in 5 minutes! It’s a straightforward, no-fuss palette that’s numbered from 1-7 which is perfect if you’re a beginner. 1-3 are eyeshadow shades (2 shimmers, 1 matte) 4 – bronzer 5+6 are blusher shades (CT’s ‘swish + pop’ system – see below) 7 – highlight This Beauty Glow palette in particular, promotes a radiant, dreamy look. In fact, it’s inspired by Poppy Delevingne’s wedding makeup (Cara Delevingne’s sister if you didn’t quite work that out). How much does it cost? …

July Monthly Favourites ft. Charlotte Tilbury, H&M + Etude House!

I actually couldn’t tell you what happened in July, except for the fact that I watched a lot of Wimbledon tennis for most of it. Otherwise the month just flew by as if we just skipped a month and said hello to August which also – what’s that all about?! I can however tell you what I’ve been really loving in the past month and wouldn’t you believe it…there is only one skincare product! As such, I’ll start with that first. Featured in this post: The Body Shop Mineral & Ginger Warming Mask Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look In A Palette in ‘Beauty Glow’ Etude House Drawing Eyebrow Duo in ‘#1 Dark Brown’ H&M Precision Sponge in ‘Natural White’ Palmolive Milk & Honey Shampoo VO5 Revive Me Daily Conditioner   Breaking out? You need a skin conditioner: A few weeks ago, I had one of the most horrific breakouts in my adult life, which I’m still trying to work out (more on that in another post). I masked a lot in those two weeks of recovering (!!) which lead …
