Oh, am I blushing?


No matter what time of year, I believe that a nice blush has the ability to tie in any makeup look. I don't stick to summer shades and winter shades, but I tend to go a tad heavier handed when applying in the colder months. I'm using theses five blushes a lot at the moment and am loving using them alongside my autumn makeup looks. 

Top left in a clock wise direction:

Mac Redhead- I originally bought this blusher when I had red hair as it was brought out for red heads. I find that it actually suits all hair and skin types as it contains multiple shades in all in one pan. I swirl my brush in the whole pan to collect all shades and find it works as a beautiful blusher and also manages to give me a little shimmer highlight to my cheeks which can look lovely on a night out when it catches the light.

Benefit posietint- I got this in a gift set and never thought I'd use it, oh how I was wrong. You can use this 'posetint' as a lip colour and a cheek colour which is amazing in itself. As a cheek product it really does give a bright and pretty look to the cheeks. More pinky toned of the group it gives a great fresh glow to the cheeks which you normally spot in summer but can look just a pretty on a winters day and looks lovely and fresh.

Estee Lauder Peach Nuance- This has to be one of my all time fav blushes ever. Such a lovely natural peach shade but as you can see starts as a yellow on one side? This never comes out on the cheeks, and you can see on my swatch that it applies as a nice wearable peach shade. I am a sucker for a peach blusher and bought this within minutes of seeing it. Sometimes I feel like peach blushers can look even more natural than a pink blusher. But to top off this blusher it has a mirror.... need I say any more.

Mac Peaches- When I bought this blusher there was so much hype about it on social media all of a sudden and wanted to see what all the fuss was about. It's very pigmented and if you want a hint of colour a light hand is necessary. With it being so pigmented and orange I do go lighter with this blusher than the rest as you can easily go overboard. I love wearing this in the evenings as it gives a more subtle look but gives a colour payoff that will be noticed. I Definitely understand the hype and is a product that needs to be in everyones collection.


Natural Collection Pink cloudBeing a very pale pink I use this when I haven't got much time on my hands as I know it applies light and can just chuck it on. This is very much like the 'posetint' colour but a tad lighter. A typical baby pink it does look lovely and natural on pale skin. When I use a matte foundation and use this I find it really stands out with my blonde highlights and wear it more during the day for a lighter look.

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
