Step by step tutorial to achieving the perfect nude lip

  Nude lips aren’t the easiest look to achieve, especially when choosing the right shade of nude is hard enough. Here’s my step by step guide on getting a long-last nude lip right every time.   As you’re going in for the nude, you’ll want to start off by priming your lips to perfection. I always begin with the Charlotte Tilbury lLp Scrub and Lip Magic, which I use to exfoliate my lips in order to start off with a smooth base. The key ingredient in the scrub is propolis, an elixir created by bees, which they use to protect the lining of of their beehives.

Beauty Essentials: Festival Makeup Survival Kit

I won’t tempt fate by daring to saying that Summer is officially here, but festival season is definitely just around the corner! Below is a list of my personal cosmetics favourites that I always bring along with me to festivals. Hand sanitiser Festivals are dirty places with gross communal toilets and a general lack of sanitation, so I suggest keeping a hand sanitiser on you at all times. Not only do hand sanitisers kill most common germs, there’s no need to rinse them off, which can be a godsend when you don’t have a bathroom nearby, but you desperately need to clean your hands. They come in handy compact bottles too, so you can keep one on you at all times.   Facial cleansing wipes I don’t want to risk […]

Product Review: the Beautyblender revolutionising makeup application one blend at a time

The original Beautyblender is a cosmetic product application sponge that has seen its status elevated to that of the godfather of all applicators. But, is it really all that it’s cracked up to be?     The Beautyblender is a versatile egg-shaped applicator that can be used to apply a range of primarily liquid-based cosmetic products, including primers, foundation, cream blushes and powders. It happens to be non-disposable and can simply be washed, dried and kept in your makeup bag for multiple uses. It also comes in an array of colours, so if you prefer to have one sponge per product, you can colour code your blending sponges according to which products you use them with the most.   The beauty of the Beautyblender is in its shape, which gives […]
