Covering up dark circles


I'm not one that suffers with terrible dark circles, however can get them quite bad having gone a few evenings with little sleep. I'm not too bothered about them for work but if they decide to appear ready for the weekend when I have something planned I like to use a couple of different products to ensure they are under control (and can't be seen).

I first go in with the Bobbi Brown Corrector (which I am dangerously running low on) and lightly pat this directly underneath my eye and bring it down slightly onto the top of the cheeks which help to blend it in. It really helps to neutralise the dark circles and brighten the entire area. It's easy to blend into the skin with a patting motion and does a good job at sticking around. 

After correcting I go in and put on my foundation and do a few other steps before going in with the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer . I sweep underneath the eye from the centre (by my nose) all the way out. I find I get a better coverage applying it in a line rather than dotting it on. I usually dabb it into the skin with the Real Techniques Buffing brush however some days like to use my fingers.This concealer is great at covering anything at all, is a dream to blend and really affordable!

You might already know that I am a big fan of the Bourjois Healthy Balance powder which don't get me wrong, is lush! But for a while I've gotten back into using the Elf HD Powder specifically for around my eye area. The reason behind this is that I find the Elf powder to gone on a lot lighter, makes the skin feel super soft and seems to flatten out the appearance of lines and circles. Its a bit messy and the packaging gets so dirty but this powder is great


How do you cover yours?!

Dreamland For Spring/Summer 2019 - Press Trip

It's that time of year again, DREAMLAND is open for business! I get so many questions about Margate and DREAMLAND in particular, so why not do another post for you. 

As a South Kent girl through and through, this place has a special place in my heart. Full of nostalgia, and pride of what it's like now. 
You may or may know that I've actually created two blog posts already from DREAMLAND, but wanted to give you a little update on it. I also played around with my camera and a new setting so it's a bit of experimenting too haha. 
Shall we?

Lets get the disclaimer out the way if you didn't catch it in the top right corner. I was invited to the park on this day as press, so received a free wristband, food and drink tokens. I wasn't asked to create a blog post in any way, but I always like to as you guys like it and its such a fun place to photograph. 

Now on to DREAMLAND:
I can't describe how much fun I always have when I visit this place. On this day pictured, it was…

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

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 pretty amazing vegetable when it comes to yo…

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 I use on a rotation and not all at the same time. My skin enjoys it when it swap aroun…
