February Favourites

It’s that time again! February is such a short month, it seems to have gone past within the blink of an eye. This month’s favourites video is heavy on the beauty front with my new skincare finds, a couple of makeup loves and the beauty book that I haven’t been able to put down - Sali Hughes ‘Pretty Honest’ is every beauty junkie’s best friend in my opinion. So, go and grab yourself a cuppa and enjoy!

Topshop Haul

Recently I’ve been in need of a few new staples in my wardrobe and with this in mind I popped into Topshop. I’m fairly short and I find their petite range to be really good, I even managed to pick up a couple of sale items – bonus!
In this haul video I share my purchases with you. Enjoy!

Facial Cleansing Brushes - Magnitone Lucid vs Clinique Sonic System

You may have noticed as of late that I’ve been enjoying the Magnitone Lucid Facial Cleansing Brush. I discovered it around three months ago, fell in love and haven’t looked back since. However, I thought it only fair to try out a few others as they all claim to do the same job, which is to provide a deep yet gentle daily cleanse.
In this video I review and compare the Magnitone Lucid and the Clinique Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush.
What are your thoughts on facial cleansing brushes? Do you think they live up to their hyped up reputation? Which ones have you tried or are you planning on trying one out? Let me know your thoughts!

Lilac Eyeshadow & Winged Eyeliner Makeup Tutorial

Recently I decided to ditch my go to neutral makeup look and try out something a little more daring. As a teenager I loved wearing purple eye shadows to emphasise my green eyes. However, as I’ve got older I’ve moved further and further into neutral territory. It’s safe, I’m comfy there…there isn’t much room to go wrong. But as the saying goes, you can stay within your comfort zone where not much new ever happens, or you can delve into unfamiliar territory and discover new and exiting things. For me (as sad as this sounds), my new and exiting thing is that I’ve started to wear bright eye shadows again, in particular this lilac one with a slightly deeper purple running through the crease. It has fast become my go to look, who would have thought?!
For those of you who are colour confident, or even if you’re a neutral lover like myself and fancy trying out something new, this tutorial takes you through my current favourite makeup look step by step. Enjoy.

Anybody who knows me knows that I’m all about my eyebrow game. If one thing is right about my makeup, it has to be my brows. When done correctly they have the ability to add structure to your whole face. Over the years I’ve developed a way of doing them which works for me and in this tutorial I share my tips, tricks and techniques with you. Enjoy!
