Light coverage

Personally i only ever wear medium - full coverage foundation when i go out for an occasion like a birthday or a get together or just a night out. So during the day i reach for light coverage foundations or a BB cream just so it allows my skin to breath slightly.


Below are the light coverage products i reach for and alternate between during the week. 







*The one i use the most is the Garnier Daily all-in-one BB cream in light*



I find it gives me the nicest finish on my skin, and helps it to look healthy and dewy. It has quite good coverage and on a good day i can go out the house just wearing this. It has a slight fragrance to it which is a nice smell but it could be a problem for sensitive skin.
I purchased it when it was on offer in Boots for £9.99 and has lasted me around 3 months so far, which isn't bad at all.
The consistency is quite thick. Thicker than what i thought it was going to be like. When you smooth it out over your face it thins out completely and seems to disappear into the skin very quickly. My personal rating of the Garnier BB cream is 9/10.








*The next product that i use quite a lot is the Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam*


At first i was a bit skeptical about the whole foam thing and still I'm not 100% sure about it. I find that when you press down to allow to foam to come out, even the slightest touch makes it spit out then runs out smooth and always far to much ends up on my hand.


However saying this i do like the finish it gives my skin. It is advertised as a light coverage foundation but i find it has quite a flawless finish and quite matte too which i prefer some days to dewy. I do find it hard to blend over my face and especially down my neck. 
Overall my personal rating of this product is 6.5/10.



*The last product i use is the Natural Collection tinted moisturiser* 


At first i thought hell yeah! £1.99... I'm trying that. I used it for around 3 weeks and realised that whenever i used this i put on a lot of powder to set it as it is literally just a moisturiser with a hint of tint that isn't really there. I wasn't bothered as it was a small £1.99. I do still use this when I'm dancing or when i go to the gym just so i feel a little bit nicer to look at in the mirror.



As you can see from the picture above, the consistency of this is very runny and thin. This does make it quite easy to apply and can be blended into the skin and down the neck. As i said above i do still use this but rarely. I would personally rate this 4/10.


Sorry this was quite a long post, feel free to comment below and let me know what you use.

Dreamland For Spring/Summer 2019 - Press Trip

It's that time of year again, DREAMLAND is open for business! I get so many questions about Margate and DREAMLAND in particular, so why not do another post for you. 

As a South Kent girl through and through, this place has a special place in my heart. Full of nostalgia, and pride of what it's like now. 
You may or may know that I've actually created two blog posts already from DREAMLAND, but wanted to give you a little update on it. I also played around with my camera and a new setting so it's a bit of experimenting too haha. 
Shall we?

Lets get the disclaimer out the way if you didn't catch it in the top right corner. I was invited to the park on this day as press, so received a free wristband, food and drink tokens. I wasn't asked to create a blog post in any way, but I always like to as you guys like it and its such a fun place to photograph. 

Now on to DREAMLAND:
I can't describe how much fun I always have when I visit this place. On this day pictured, it was…

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day!

I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine.

Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down.

What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the Yes To Cucumber range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try! 



It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a pretty amazing vegetable when it comes to yo…

Hi, hey, how are ya?

It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know. 
So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that). 
Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips. 
Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products I use on a rotation and not all at the same time. My skin enjoys it when it swap aroun…
