In a rush make up choices


One of those mornings when you'd rather stay in bed than get up for work? This is me most mornings and because of extra 5/10 minutes snoozing make up time is shortened. For these situations which I have to admit occur more more at the moment I need a quick routine that won't fail me.

Base:
Recently I've been skipping wearing foundation or tinted moisturiser and have just gone for concealer on areas of redness and then lightly powdering all over the face to lock the concealer in. Super quick and effective. I only use this concealer on my face and not my eyes as I find it creases on me. I have so much love for this powder and in desperate need of a new one. 

Brows:
As you already know I'm a huge brow lover and as much as I love my Soap and Glory Archery I like to use my old trusty friend, the angled brush and powder. This way I can apply it quickly and roughly and looks quite natural and neat. I use the powder as from day to day I just want to fill them in so they are noticeable. 

Eyes:
I can never go a day without curling my eyelashes. This is something I feel everyone should do no matter if they wear mascara or not. It's just great and helps to keep your eyelashes long and curled for longer. I got this mascara free with some products I bought as kept it to give it a go. At the moment it's not my fav but will persist and report back to you all, but does a good job of slightly thickening my lashes giving the illusion of bigger eyes.

As long as I use these products I don't feel naked. I still feel bright and ready to look kind of respectable.

Sorry this post was late, life and mostly work getting in the way. I am going to spend most of my Friday night composing a hand full of posts ready for next week so I don't let you guys down.

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
