My summer makeup



The days are longer and the suns warmer, which means we tend to go a little lighter on our makeup. We might not spend as long on our face and reach for looks and products that are fast and easy to apply. Full coverage foundation is not something I'm referring to here and for me, the sheerer the better and, the more natural and glowing the better.


My go to summer face is a very straight forward one that doesn't require that much time and is super easy to do. I really like to keep it simple and just switch up my lipstick colour. I like my base light as I don't want to cover up my freckles or anything as my face catches the sun nicely (I use SPF 30 on my face everyday). I'm really not a fan of over doing my face in the summer months, it's nice to feel fresh and have a bit more of a natural look with your makeup. When it comes to eyes, I like it simple and sometimes I don't even wear eyeliner and just mascara. When it comes to the lips, however, I like to change it up often and very much enjoy experimenting with colour during the summer.


In these pictures I'm wearing the following and am reaching for these on a daily basis:

Chanel Les Beiges - N10
Benefit Hoola
Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to cheek - Love is the drug
Collection Extreme 24hr liner- Black
Natural Collection Brow pencil - dark brown
Benefit They're Real - Black
Clinique bottom lash - Black
Kat Von D Everlasting liquid lipstick - Lovesick 



So, is a more natural look something you like wearing in the warmer months? What are your go to products for a simple natural look?

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
