GLOWY SUMMER MAKEUP

GLOWY SUMMER MAKEUP

I love a glowy makeup look, especially in the summer. There’s just something about an illuminated base that gives me good vibes. It can be tricky to look glowy in the summer without looking sweaty, but I think I’ve finally got the look down with […]

3 SIMPLE FESTIVAL MAKEUP IDEAS

3 SIMPLE FESTIVAL MAKEUP IDEAS

Whilst elaborate and intricate festival makeup tutorials float around the internet in the midst of festival season, promising the perfect festival aesthetic for those crucial instagram pics, I sit here thinking to myself, ‘who would want to do 90 minutes of makeup in a soggy tent […]

PROM EXPERIENCE, TIPS & MAKEUP LOOK

PROM EXPERIENCE, TIPS & MAKEUP LOOK

Prom is a major event in many young people’s lives and is the culmination of all the hard work you did in high school. I had mine in 2011, which was seven(!!) years ago, when I was 16. I remember girls in my year planning […]

MY EVERYDAY MAKEUP ROUTINE

MY EVERYDAY MAKEUP ROUTINE

My everyday makeup tends to be a little more full coverage and ‘done’ than most other people’s. Most of that we can thank a lack of self-confidence for, but the biggest reason why I just have to have a full face most days is because, well… I […]

MAKEUP OF THE DAY: MISS SPORTY

MAKEUP OF THE DAY: MISS SPORTY

Today’s makeup was an experiment with a fairly unused brand (by myself, anyway). I ordered a full face of makeup from Superdrug of Miss Sporty, minus foundation and primer (I already had those) and put all of them onto my face to test out the […]

MAKEUP OF THE DAY – BROWN SMOKEY EYE

MOTD: FULL FACE OF DUPES

MOTD: FULL FACE OF DUPES

We all know by now that I’m a huge fan of dupes. If you’ve seen my TAMBeauty dupe list, you’ve probably picked up a few for yourself as well! I decided to do a complete makeup look using just the dupes I have in my […]

PURPLE & GOLD MOTD: THEN + NOW

PURPLE & GOLD MOTD: THEN + NOW

~This post was updated on the 08/09/17 and was originally published on 12/08/16~ I don’t claim to be a beauty guru or a makeup artist or even that good at doing my makeup, but I love doing it. I’ve only been practicing and putting a […]

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 […]

GO-TO NIGHT OUT MAKEUP ROUTINE

GO-TO NIGHT OUT MAKEUP ROUTINE

Honestly – I don’t get out much. I’m a blogger, YouTuber and I’m living the broke life, which is like the holy trinity for being a hermit. But very, very occasionally, I’ll have a night out. Maybe once or twice a year. And as I hardly ever […]
