Go To Properly Clean

This is a beautiful, simple, no fuss foaming cleanser. I prefer to use it as a morning cleanser. Click here for a full review of the Go To Skincare range.

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

This was so old and well overdue to be thrown out. I really like this beauty sponge and think its a great dupe for the original Beauty Blender. Click here for a comparison of the two.

Beauty Blender

I switch up between the Beauty Blender and the Real Techniques sponge to apply my foundation. I love applying my base with a sponge!

DUO Eyelash Adhesive 

I think I got a dud glue. It smelt funny and I found it difficult to use.

Sunsense Lip Balm*

Not my favourite lip balm. But I did like using it when I went to the beach as it had SPF.

Beauty Blender

Applying my foundation with a Beauty Blender is a must! Its vary rare that I use a brush to apply my foundation, however some foundations do work better when applied with a brush. For me the Beauty Blender is easy and creates the most flawless base ever! Click here for a comparison to the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.

MAC Eye Kohl- Teddy

Hylamide Photography Foundation*

This is a goldy toned liquid highlighter, but can be used mixed in with foundation or primer. Personally, I like it as a liquid highlighter as a base to my powder highlighter.

Skincare Prep Ahead of the Festive Season

Hello beauties,

With the festive season literally upon us and with party after party, I wanted to share with you how I get my skin into shape ahead of all the celebrations.

A Week Before

In addition to doing a face mask, make sure you are regularly exfoliating your face. Personally, I don’t like physical exfoliants as I find them too harsh. I prefer a chemical exfoliant that will remove all the dead skin cells and will leave me with glowy skin. I recommend Alpha H Liquid Gold* as the results are instant!
