BACK TO SCHOOL MINIMAL MAKEUP

BACK TO SCHOOL MINIMAL MAKEUP

During high school there’s enormous amounts of pressure to wear makeup and keep up with the latest trends, despite school being purely there for learning (and algebra). With most schools adhering to a strict uniform policy, you’re not usually allowed to head into English with […]

MONTHLY WRAP-UP & BEST OF AUGUST 2017

MONTHLY WRAP-UP & BEST OF AUGUST 2017

August has been dragging its feet and seemingly never wanted to leave. Even the weather got bored and decided to skip ahead and bring us autumnal weather, with it feeling noticeably colder and wetter than July. So much for summer, eh? I’ve been looking forward […]

MAKEUP REVOLUTION LIQUID HIGHLIGHTER REVIEW

Makeup Revolution have duped it again with their new Liquid Highlighters, with seven shades to suit most skintones, including a Unicorn highlight (very on-trend).

FIRST IMPRESSIONS – NEW DRUGSTORE MAKEUP

FIRST IMPRESSIONS – NEW DRUGSTORE MAKEUP

I picked up so much makeup in the past month (I even have a haul) that I was able to do a complete full face of makeup (minus setting spray) with untested, new products. I even had some left over! I love testing out new […]

COLLECTIVE MAKEUP HAUL – AUGUST 2017

COLLECTIVE MAKEUP HAUL – AUGUST 2017

I buy a lot of makeup each month, and this haul is no exception. I managed to grab a few bargains from Illamasqua, TAMBeauty and Superdrug, so grab a cuppa and settle in for a fairly hefty haul! Disclaimer – all my income (after bills) […]

ANTI-HAUL #1

ANTI-HAUL #1

Anti-Hauls always seem so dramatic and scandalous and tend to attract controversy, so I’ve been avoiding doing one on my blog or YouTube channel, but they’re something I really enjoy watching and reading so I decided to bite the bullet. As a disclaimer, this is […]

LOVE ME BEAUTY – AUGUST 2017

LOVE ME BEAUTY – AUGUST 2017

This month’s Love Me Beauty was a little bit of a palaver, with them taking the money from my bank the day before pay day, meaning the payment bounced and my subscription didn’t get renewed until a week later, but we got my order in […]

LOOKFANTASTIC BEAUTY BOX – AUGUST 2017

LOOKFANTASTIC BEAUTY BOX – AUGUST 2017

LookFantastic Beauty Box day is still my favourite day each month. I love receiving the surprises and trying new things each time, which can only mean that the LookFantastic Beauty Box is an investment well worth making. The box costs just £13 a month with […]

5 MISTAKES SMALL YOUTUBERS MAKE

5 MISTAKES SMALL YOUTUBERS MAKE

YouTube is hard. So much harder than anyone who doesn’t do YouTube thinks. It requires a tonne of hard work, perseverance, time and luck to strike it big; it’s so much harder now to gain traction and a following than it used to be as there’s so […]

DID TOO FACED DUPE MAKEUP REVOLUTION?

DID TOO FACED DUPE MAKEUP REVOLUTION?

We all know that the TAMBeauty crew have duped a lot of brands, especially Too Faced (check out the Chocolate Bar range and the Blushing Hearts by I♥Makeup). So imagine my surprise when I saw some very familiar packaging appearing on TrendMood… The golden drips aren’t something that Too […]
