Highlighting my face in autumn

Having a very heart shaped face I tend to feel the need to contour and highlight in order to get some definition into those 'chubby cheeks'. During the warmer months I tend to not use highlight as the natural sparkle of a dewy (sweaty) face does that for you. Now it's October and getting a bit colder my base is moving to the more matte look with a nice blush, and a touch of highlight. The man for that and what I am reaching for on a regular basis is my YSL Touche Eclat.

I have a few fav highlighters that I go between however the finish of this makes it my number one for a liquid highlight. It's supposed to cover dark circles and everything however I still need to use concealer first, I guess my bags are too dark. Once its applied I like to dab it into the skin and it gives a very subtle touch of highlight, nothing too in your face. Its very easily wearable and could even be applied without a mirror as it blends in so quickly and effortlessly.

Once I start I can't stop- Touche Eclat £25
If your happy to spend £25 on a good highlight that seems to last ages and that won't let you down, I would say go for it! Its a great product and great for newbies to the highlighter step as like I said its easy to work with and subtle. I am yet to try a Touche Eclat in the new variety of shades as this is the 'one colour fits all' one. There are cheaper products on the market including one that is slightly cheaper and one I would really like to try which is the Clinique Up costing £22.

Do you have a go to highlight? I would love to know.

Thanks for reading
xoxo

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To 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

How To Read More & What I Read In May

*gifted items and affiliate links Hi mates, it's been a while!  So, I've had quite a few requests to create a blog post all about how I read so much. Don't get me wrong there are loads of people out there that read way more than me. But I average 4 books a month, however with lockdown in the UK I've been able to rack up my monthly average.  Let's just jump straight in to how I read as much as I do. 1 ~ Choose books you WANT to read This sounds super obvious, however I myself have been known to follow book trends and pick up a book because it's all over the gram, or because my favourite influencer has told me to read it. Doing so can result in books you just don't get in the flow of reading and books you don't want to actively pick up.  Know what genres you like to read. Know what authors you like and do some digging to make sure you pick wisely. Sometimes you will be disappointed with a book that you feel you should of enjoye

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
