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.

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…
