The Overnight Oils

Posted on July 21, 2014

Overnight Oils: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair, NUDE ProGenius Treatment Oil, Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate

Whenever my skin needs a pick me up, I always reach for my favourite overnight oils.  The miracle workers that transform your skin while you sleep.  Chances are if someone has recommended a face oil to you, it will be one of these three.  With that in mind, I thought I'd compare the three to help narrow down which one will suit your skin the best.

Topshop Stippling Brush in Cobalt

When it comes to beauty, I'm all for breaking the rules every now and then.  If a product doesn't work for me in one way, I'll look for other ways to make use of it.  Old cleansers which no longer suit my skin become brush cleaners and old (but clean!) mascara wands become brow tamers.  This is especially true for my brush collection with the addition of Topshop Stippling Brush in Cobalt.  Now even though it might say foundation on the handle, here's how I prefer to use it.

Models Own HyperGel in Red Lustre

When I first tried out the Models Own Hypergel collection, I wasn't too impressed with the formula.  When I saw a few of the shades sitting unused I decided to give them one more try and I feel I may have spoken too soon with my negative opinion.  Red Lustre, the one I was least impressed with turned out to be much better the second time round so here's how you can get the most out of them.

Top 5 Summer Lipsticks: Revlon Lip Butter, Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet, KIKO Exotic Shine, Topshop Lipstick
I've recently been neglecting my lipstick stash so I thought what better time than now to bring out a few of my favourite Summer picks.  The vampy/dark shades are stashed away for the colder months and now it's time for the bold, the sheer and the very pink shades to have their chance to shine.  Here are my Top 5 Summer Lipsticks.

So you're going to a Festival...

Posted on July 12, 2014

festival beauty essentials Living in the UK you can never place your bets on anything when planning summer activities. Our weather is probably the most random in the world and we have such a wonderful mix of cultures and traditions around us, that we can be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing what to do. One thing we can be sure of though, is a swarm of festivals...everywhere. If you can name it then there is probably a festival for it, but the biggest and most popular are our music festivals. Myself and Sami have both attended various music festivals over the years and I'd say I have festival essentials down to a T (...in the park) sorry I couldn't help myself!
