Shaking up my neutral palettes | Beauty


Palettes are handy to have, as in general they cater for daytime and evening looks, so the perfect thing to take away with you on the go. As we're in the festive month of December I'm trying to add a little something to my go to neutral looks, and delving into the other end of the palettes for help. 

Heading more to the burnt copper and burgundy shades is my safe option when trying to use more of my palettes. Although I can pretty much buy any neutral palette and be happy with it, I'm really getting into these palettes you can arrange yourself because you can completely make them your perfect selection. Coppering and Cranberry  are my perfect 'That little extra' shades for me to liven up my neutral looks.



The MUA Heaven and Earth palette is a really affordable palette however, the consistency and payoff of the shadows really does allow you to build well and is like the quality of a much more expensive brand. By just including a darker brown in the crease ( Valley or Bedrock) it automatically takes your eye look to a more dramatic route. Sometimes I go that one step more and line the bottom lash line with the darker shadow which helps to achieve more of a smokey eye.


The last palette that's great for going from neutral day to evening smoke is the first Naked palette, a product that I'm sure you all have used or own. I'm very partial to using Smog and Hustle as my drama but, also have used them across the whole lid and just blended and blended out so the edges are soft and added a tiny dab of Sin in the inner to brighten up the eye. 

My love for neutral palettes is just too much. Why do we need single shadows when a palette can take you from day to night in one product. I've pictured the Maybelline colour tattoo because I find this to be a fab base for an intensive smokey eye as it really locks the shadows in. I'd love to know your fav palettes that you can shake up and start using the other end of the shadow line.

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

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
