A make up change up



The weather drops and I'm the first one to grab the scarf out of the wardrobe but when it comes to my make up I like to hang onto the summer. I like to try and live out of a make up bag on a daily basis otherwise it would take me hours to get ready digging through my entire collection. I tend to swap around what I have in my make up bag every month or so and at the moment I am really enjoying the group of products I have right now. 

In terms of base I've been starting with the Burberry luminous fluid base all over the areas I want that extra glow (the cheek bones, down the nose and under the brow). It's a. Lovely formula and gives just the right amount of glow to look natural and sun kissed. Being a light base girl the Diorskin Nude BB has quickly become my most used base product. Being so easy to slap on with minimal buffing into the skin it just makes your skin look a tad more awake than normal. In terms of coverage it's obviously not the most effective being a BB cream but some dark patches are lightened. 

Contouring is something I'm not really doing right now. I'm not sure why this has slipped away from my everyday routine but right now I'm pretty happy with just a pop of colour on the cheeks. Every time I just look at this Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chick packaging my hearts melts. You need a really light hand with this especially with the bright colour in the middle being so pink and pigmented. Tapping off the excess with this one is vital! 

Now onto the eyes which I've been keeping super simple. The Nars Smudge Proof primer is my go to right now as it does the job and never fails. I know that my eye make up will be on and remain looking pretty good all day even after teaching for 6 hours which might include a couple of dance classes. This Loreal nude palette is full of every day wearable shades and are really pigmented and affordable. It's a great palette for travelling as daytime and nighttime eye make up can be done with this one palette. To make my lashes appear a bit fuller I've been pressing in some black eyeliner from Collection. I saw this little trick in a Lisa Potter-Dixon video and haven't stopped doing it since as it does actually give the illusion of fuller thicker lashes. Without going into too much detail (baring in mind this mascara has been mentioned on the blog an incredible amount) Benefit They're Real is and will be my favourite mascara to use. The length it gives your lashes and also the hold power of it is amazing and if you haven't tested it out, you must. 

Lastly for lips I've been sticking with my NARS satin lip pencil in Rikugien which I got in a Glossybox. Being a pinky nude it's so easy to apply and also wearable during the day and evening. It's slightly glossy which I'm ok with as I'm normally a matte lip wearer but this is the perfect amount of gloss. It doesn't last an incredible amount of time on the lips but doesn't bother me for during the day.


Has your make up routine changed recently along with the weather? 

Do you use any of these products?

  1. These are great products! I am loving the makeup bag. I mostly change my foundation and lip stick shades and go for berries and dark shades.

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…
