I HEART REVOLUTION CHOCOLATE PALETTES – BEST TO WORST

I HEART REVOLUTION CHOCOLATE PALETTES – BEST TO WORST

I have spent the last 2 months trying out every single chocolate palette from I Heart Revolution. I review a lot of them for YouTube (check out this playlist if you don’t believe me) and I get a fair few questions about which ones are […]

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 […]

AUGUST EDIT / 2018

AUGUST EDIT / 2018

A question I’ve seen pop up across social media, blogs and youtube recently is – Can we trust the big beauty influencers? There have been incidents where influencers have been caught out in offensive behaviour, undisclosed sponsorships and overcharging for their own products (um, hello […]

NEW I HEART REVOLUTION CHOCOLATE PALETTES

NEW I HEART REVOLUTION CHOCOLATE PALETTES

Last week, I Heart Revolution launched 4 new palettes within their chocolate palette range. I, of course, bought them all. You can find them on the Revolution Beauty website, which ships worldwide, but if you’d like to take a closer look before you buy, I’ve […]

LOOKFANTASTIC BEAUTY BOX – AUGUST 2018

LOOKFANTASTIC BEAUTY BOX – AUGUST 2018

This is the second month in a row that I’ve totally forgotten that I was meant to receive the LFBeautyBox in the post! So that was a nice surprise when it did land on my doorstep at the beginning of the month. This month’s theme […]

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 […]
