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

*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
