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

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips 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

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
