A simple, quick Valentines face


I'm not actually spending Valentines day with my boyfriend as I'm off on a school trip to watch England play in the six nations which is pretty cool. Tony being a rugby player himself was all for me going.

I gave myself a lay in today so had to make my face presentable in case I had to be included in any school trip pictures or if I met Martin Johnson I would so ask him for a selfie! 

My quick Valentines face:

I wanted to go for something that would last and that would just make me look a bit more fresh and awake. The Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation is such a great base. I only need to use one pump which covers my whole face nicely and gives a lovely fresh in the middle coverage. I obviously apply this with a Real Techniques brush but today have gone for the buffing brush for a bit of a lighter application and finish. 

For the little details like the brows I am using my trusty Soap and Glory Archery as this never fails me. Natural look, easy to apply, quick to apply and lasts all day. However not when I forget I have done my brows and itch them......this happens often.

The Benefit tint I've gone for on my cheeks and lips for tiny bit of colour. Its a shade of pink that gives you an instant re-fresh for a pretty girlie look (perfect for valentines).

Eyes are my thing. I love mascara and trying to make my eyes look bigger is THE thing I am always trying to do. Loreal False Lash Telescopic is my trusty partner in crime when it comes to lashes. Just two coats and my lashes are huge, long and full and am always getting asked what false lashes I'm wearing. And to help me out with the bigger eye look I am totally hooked on this nude eyeliner from Rimmel. Just using this on the water line makes my eyes look bigger and no red in sight.

So there it is. My quick Valentines simple yet cute make up look.

What products will you be using today?

Have a lovely one, and come on England!!
xoxo

  3. I'd love to see the outcome of your quick apply like a photo, especially since I'm a sucker for eye makeup so it"d be nice to see yours. But some of us are camera shy.

    1. I completely agree! I'm awaiting a new camera which hopefully will be soon. But I will do a make up look next week. xo

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

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
