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

*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
