Making make-up last longer


A family member asked the other day 'How can I make my make up last longer as it just feels like its completely gone by the end of the day'. I have my favourite products pictured above and went through each of them to my Aunt. So how do I make mine last longer?

Starting with a primer?- For people who have very sensitive skin like my sister primers are hard to find that don't react with her skin. In my case though my favourites are the Laura Mercier Primer and the Benefit Porefessional. Both very different however do the trick by prepping your skin ready for product and somehow just grabs onto your base make up and puts it under lock and key. There are others that I have used and have been happy with but these two are by far top of my primer love list. 

Locking make up in with powder?- I've recently found this Healthy Balance powder which is a great way to lock in and moisture which could be the issue as to why your make up has disappeared by the end of the day. This should be your best friend if you suffer with oily skin as can be re applied through out the day if needed, however when put on my t-zone in the morning I feel comfortable its still there when I get home.

Finishing with a spritz?- A fixing spray is a genius idea and without this I would still be using hairspray *don't try this at home I was silly and very young. The idea is that you spray a few pumps all over your face and it locks in your make up keeping it intact for longer. Mac aren't the only brand to do a fix spray, and another personal fav for this job is by Caudalie beauty elixir is also awesome and refreshes your make up whenever you feel needed. 

So there are a few options I've gone through which I hope helps anyone struggling to make their make up stay longer.

Would love to know your tricks!
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

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
