The joys of make up #FOTD

Growing up I had quite bad acne and the brightest red cheeks you've ever seen. Now I'm 27 my skin is much better however I still have the bright red cheeks that I desperately cover everyday and this make up look is something I go to most days when I'm not at work.

N7 colour primer-£10.50- I've done a post all about priming my face and have included this product in that HERE. It act as a great primer however if also diminishes my red cheeks like a pro. I use this every single day and really does help to even them out with the rest of my skin.

Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation- £9.99- My go to base at the moment. I'm totally loving using this as it can be used lightly and built up if you need it to be full coverage. Doesnt clump in my dry areas and is a great colour match for me. Certainly one of my all time drugstore foundations. 

Soap and Glory Archery- £8.00- Your probably all bored of me banging on about this product so I will leave it as that and link you to my brow post HERE.

Bourjois chocolate bronzer- £7.99- I went out last week and treated myself to another one of these having given my old one to my sister as I didn't get on with it at all. I must of been having an off time with make up as now I don't understand how I felt like that. It's a great bronzer! Affordable and smells amazing. I do find the shades are a bit iffy and I have to been so light handed when applying but when I do it right, I love the look when using it as a contour.

Naked palette- £38.00- A palette that everyone should own. Such beautiful colours and great for a day time look and then incredibly easy to transform the look to evening. In this look pictured I'm just wearing 'syn' all over the lid with some 'naked' in the crease to add a little definition. 

Nars lip pencil in Lodhi- £19.00- I got this in the Harvey Nichols Glossybox and love it so so much. Such a soft product that has great colour pay off and is easy to apply. My only downside I find is that it's not very long lasting, obviously compared to the matte versions. I wear it on days when I'm popping into town and have the time to re-apply every now and again. But this is defo not a night on the town lip product.

Maybelline Falsies mascara -£7.99- Since I discovered Maybelline mascaras a couple of months ago I've had a very on off relationship with them. This one the most. Having let it dry out slightly from quite a few usages I feel its done wonders for this product. It holds a curl better, not as gloomy, and actually easier to apply. I will persist with it and include a final verdict in an empties post.

I've had quite a few people asking if or when I'm going to go on YouTube and to do make up looks and stuff. Is it just me or this this scary for anyone? I mean filming myself and putting it on YouTube I am nervous just thinking about it. Did anyone else feel this when making this decision?

Thanks for reading you lovely bunch,
xoxo

  3. Maybelline is the best non-premium brand for mascara by far!

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
