This year has definitely been the year of matte eyeshadows for me, I don't know what it is maybe it's the old age getting to me ha - BUT I have too often reached for matte eyeshadows over the shimmers. There's been one palette which has dominated my daily eyeshadow choices and I can't remember the last time I used anything else (This being the Smashbox Full Exposure) Well all that changed when I made the recent discovery of the Balm Cosmetics there's now a new palette on the block which I just can't put down - 'Meet Matt(e) Nude.
Greetings from Dubai! It seems quite fitting that as I'm writing this I'm currently sat in the sun. I'm dreading my return to London next week, but while the sun is still shining here I wanted to share my love for a new pair of sunglasses AND there's a little giveaway too!
Hello my loves Happy Saturday - To be fair I have no concept of days here in Dubai and despite how often I visit, I will never get my head around the weekend being Friday/Saturday. So as today is the end of the weekend I thought I would catch up on all my posts/videos for you all.
I'm such a fragrance junkie - My selected scent highly depends on my mood, the season and the time of day - All very technical I say - BUT I feel as if I have truly found, 'The One' - This could possibly be my new signature scent!
From a young age I've always enjoyed flying, although the lead up to travelling is often filled with stress and panic. This affects my mind, body and most importantly my skin. I always prepare a selection of in-flight beauty bits to accompany me, no matter how long or short the journey is. Here's a selection of my in-flight essentials that I brought with me en route to Dubai.
I'm back on the VlogWagon - I wanted to share with you, some of what I've been up to lately. I hate to commit and say this will be a regular thing but at the moment I'm quite enjoying it so I hope you will be part of the adventure, for as long as it lasts.
This should have been up on Friday but let's say by the time I touched down in Dubai the last thing I wanted to do was open my laptop. I created this look and filmed this video prior to my departure, it was a potential look for my birthday celebrations in Dubai on Friday/Saturday - Typical me, I ended up changing my mind last minute but the look is still something I'd often wear.
It's been a month since I first started my trial with the Philips Lumea and it's going really well . I was eager to use the device to see whether an at home hair removal experience could be as effective as the professional treatments in a clinic. As I'd mentioned in my first post excessive hair growth is something I've struggled with from a young age. Initially my expectations weren't too high but after a month of using the Philips Lumea, I have definitely been swayed.
I've been using the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils for as long as I can remember, more recently they're awesomeness (is that even a word!?) has been slightly shaded by the Satin Lip Pencils, which I also adore - but let's face it.. matte and me are just meant to be!
When the colder weekends kick in, there's nothing I love more, than staying in, wrapping up warm and giving myself a little pamper. On the weekend I get to truly enjoy my products! This usually takes place on Sunday evenings - So before I begin to unwind I thought I'd give you the low down.
Oh Friday how you crept up so quickly on me this week! It's been busy, busy, busy this week - I'm going away next week for my birthday so I'm trying to get as much done as possible! This week's #FFO has been a look I've been wearing so often, because it's super quick and easy to achieve!
It's another LATE#FridayFaceOff - I intended to upload yesterday evening and I'd love to tell you had far more exciting plans but the reality is - I fell asleep at 8pm and woke up this morning at 6! OOPS.. It has been one of those weeks. I also decided that I wanted to start doing my #FridayFaceOff's blogposts in conjunction with video uploads on my YouTube channel. So not only will I talk through all my products on the blog you can also watch me create my weekly looks - Let me know your thoughts on this!
