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

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
