LOOKFANTASTIC BEAUTY BOX – NOVEMBER '17

LOOKFANTASTIC BEAUTY BOX – NOVEMBER '17

You may have noticed that the LookFantastic Beauty Box unboxing is a little later than usual this month – that’s because I didn’t receive one of the promised items in my box and I’ve been waiting for them to send it to me. However, it […]

BEAUTY FAVOURITES – NOVEMBER '17

BEAUTY FAVOURITES – NOVEMBER '17

It’s the latest truly autumn month so I thought I’d whack out the fake leaves to surround my favourite products from the last few weeks. There isn’t that much to show you again (last month’s favourites was short but sweet as well) but I feel […]

BEAUTY STANDARDS ON YOUTUBE

BEAUTY STANDARDS ON YOUTUBE

I’m no stranger to hateful comments about my appearance (it’s happened all my life, both online and in-person), but recently I’m getting less comments about the way I look but rather the way I present myself in videos. Most of the comments seem to be about […]

HOW I CLEAN MY MAKEUP BRUSHES

This post was originally posted on 4/3/2017 and rewritten on 21/11/2017 Brushes are a haven for bacteria and manky old makeup stains so keeping them clean is important – it can even prevent you from breaking out! Here’s how I clean my brushes and beauty […]

JACLYN HILL X MORPHE PALETTE REVIEW

JACLYN HILL X MORPHE PALETTE REVIEW

I know, I know, I’m super late to the review game with this palette. I wasn’t originally going to do a review of it, as by the time I’d got mine from Beauty Bay, the whole world had already swatched and demoed it to death. But […]

TARTELETTE VAULT REVIEW

TARTELETTE VAULT REVIEW

I was very lucky to receive the Tartelette vault for my 23rd birthday earlier in the month and thought I’d do a detailed review of all three for those of you who are wanting to invest in some high-end palettes. I think it’s important to […]

MASCARA WANDS – WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?!

MASCARA WANDS – WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?!

[This post was originally published 9th August 2017 and revised 15th November 2017] I think we’ve all picked up a new mascara just for the interesting wand at some point in our lives. Mascaras are constantly being released that promise to have the world’s first whatever wand, that can […]

HUDA BEAUTY MAUVE OBSESSIONS PALETTE REVIEW

HUDA BEAUTY MAUVE OBSESSIONS PALETTE REVIEW

I don’t think I’ve ever reviewed something ‘high end’ on my blog before (correct me if I’m wrong), mostly because I don’t really have the income to buy anything expensive! But it was my birthday earlier this month and treated myself to one of the […]

MINI MAKEUP HAUL

MINI MAKEUP HAUL

It’s my birthday month (I turned 23 on the 7th) so I’ve treated myself to a few bits of makeup guilt-free as well as getting some gifts and thought I’d show you some of it! I’ve deliberately missed out some of the products I’ll be […]
