June Birchbox: Daytrippin’

June Birchbox: Daytrippin’

The beginning of the June has spun around quicker than I care for to be honest! Where is this year going and what do you mean I’m going to be 25 next month?!?! Whilst I’m busy simply trying to figure out time travel so I can be 21 again, my monthly subscription boxes arrived! This month’s summery Birchbox wasn’t a box at all, but a lovely little Birchbag instead!

Festivals 2017 – The ‘No Makeup’ Makeup Look

Festivals 2017 – The ‘No Makeup’ Makeup Look

One of the biggest fashion looks I saw at Coachella was the boho look. I’m so happy it’s making a come back! Time for rustic, floral prints, loose fitting dresses, short denim shorts and loose, wavy hair. It’s all about naturalness. The “I woke up like this” vibe. As if you rolled out of bed, selected the first piece of crumpled up clothing from your floordrobe and waltzed out of the front door, glowing and glorious. Except in reality, it’s a carefully calculated look, pairing the right print with the right accessories and the right makeup. But in my opinion, the right makeup is the ‘No Makeup’ Makeup look.

Review: Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer

Review: Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer

I won a Twitter giveaway recently, and the prize was a bottle of the Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer. I’ve followed Too Faced for years, but have never either had the need or the money to buy any of their products. So I was suitably excited to give this product a whirl. The primer cost £27.00 and is a generous size, and is a little different to other primers I’ve used.

Foundation Techniques: Which Applicator is Best?

Foundation Techniques: Which Applicator is Best?

I’m going to apply foundation onto my face 8 times, because I’m genuinely curious as to which technique comes out on top. I’ll be using 2 foundations; my absolute holy grail foundation (Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Foundation) and a foundation I have several issues with (L’Oreal Infallible 24hr Matte Foundation). I’ll be using four techniques for each; classic finger blending, the beauty blender, brushing with a traditional foundation brush and using an oval brush.

Worth the Hype? The Anastasia Beverly Hills x Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit

Worth the Hype? The Anastasia Beverly Hills …

But as I eagerly awaited the arrival of my package, I started to think; Why did I want this palette so much? I did like highlighters, and in all honestly this palette probably started my obsession with them! But it was so expensive, difficult to replace and just another palette. The fact that it was impossible to get probably helped! There was such a hype surrounding this palette, to the extent that people got genuinely excited for me when I announced on Twitter I’d managed to buy one. Was it honestly going to be worth it?

My First Giveaway!

My First Giveaway!

For my first giveaway, I decided to choose a product which combined value with high quality, and also offered more than one use. I ended up choosing the Makeup Revolution Iconic Smokey Eyeshadow Palette. I picked up one of these for myself too, so watch out for a full review and some tutorials before the giveaway is over! The prize itself is a selection of twelve eyeshadows, mostly with a shimmer texture but also some matte shadows, in colours of brown, green, cream, blue, grey and black. It’s not only the perfect way to create a vibrant smokey eye look, but also a fairly good dupe of Urban Decay’s NAKED Smokey palette.

April Birchbox: Unboxing and First Impressions

April Birchbox: Unboxing and First Impressions

This months Birchbox is a collaboration with the London based brand Boden and is themed “The Bold and the Beautiful”. There was an option to upgrade and get a cute cardholder. Being a student and poor, I decided not to opt for this. This month I received 2 full sized products, and I was quite impressed with the selection. I was given 2 makeup products, 2 skincare products and 1 hair product. So far, so good!
