THE POWER OF MAKE UP

I shot these images for a recent collaboration with Rimmel London (a dream come true), and really loved how they turned out. It’s amazing how different a rusty red elevator can look once camera flash and a slick of lipstick is applied. Anyway, I couldn’t bare to see them go to waste on Instagram and get lost in the feed forever – I wanted to pop them on my blog so that I could look back and remember how they made me feel…

SPRING BEAUTY | THE STAPLES

The recent mini heatwave has had me clearing out my empty beauty products, and making way for some new spring/summer beauty essentials to get my skin in tip top condition. It was a longgg winter of central heating induced scales, and a general lacklustre complexion. I’ve mentioned before that my skin always looks it’s best throughout the warmer months, I find that my routine can be a little less product heavy, and generally less high maintenance. I thought I’d run you through a few of the things that can be found on my messy bathroom shelf – the things that are keeping my face a little less winter bound, and a little more summer is just round the corner

GLOSSIER | MY TOP PICKS

My beauty posts tend to be a bit few and far in-between – this is mainly because I don’t like to share anything on my blog that I haven’t tried and tested for a good few weeks, and partly because I’m a creature of habit. Anything that makes it’s way into my beauty cabinet gets used up until the very last drops – I hate having an excess of products that just get wasted, so I try and keep my beauty routine as streamline as possible. I very much have a handful of brands that I trust when it comes to new products, but I’m always open to discovering new things. I’m pretty sure everyone and their cat has heard about Glossier by now, and I’ve featured a lot of their products over on Instagram stories over the past six months. I thought it was about time I did a little roundup of my favourites so far…

WINTER BEAUTY CABINET

It’s been a little while since I’ve done anything beauty related – so I thought the start of a brand new year might be the perfect excuse! My skincare routine doesn’t tend to change that much – I pretty much stick to around ten different products in alteration with each other, depending on what my skin is crying out for each week. For those of you that follow my Instagram stories/beauty blog posts, you’ll know that I own way more than ten products, but most of them are just variations of pretty much the same thing…

SKINCARE CATCH UP

I’ve recently introduced a few new products into my skincare routine that I thought were worth a mention – it’s approaching that time of year when my skin tends to act up and have a bit of a seasonal breakdown. This year however, I feel like I’ve really started to get to grips with the kind of ingredients that work in harmony with my skin, rather than irritate the hell out of it and encourage another expensive skincare binge. There really isn’t much worse than investing in products that just don’t work for you, so I thought I’d share a few that have definitely been worth the pennies, and are continuing to transform my skin and make me feel confident…

However, when the time comes around, we realise just how hot and sweaty those summer nights are, and once again crave a minimal routine with products that do more than they say on the tin…
