My foundation hoard is pretty big: some I loathe, some I love, and most are just not quite it. If I start reaching for a single foundation day in day out amid all this choice, it is usually a sign I have found one I love. So join me for my second take on Bourjois’ Healthy Mix Radiance Reveal foundation.
Looking through my stash of empties this month, I realised each and every one of these is amazing. They are among my favourite all-time products, so be prepared some enthousiast raving.
Just a quick little post to show you my current go-to make-up look: basic, fresh, and super quick. There is also a lovely mix of budget and high end products in there, so something for everyone.
The last few months have been crazy busy and my skin has suffered. This isn’t because I skimp on my skincare routine – I actually love taking a little me time at night – but because I have been eating horribly. Lots of ready meals, alcohol, and sugary treats doesn’t just translate as bad news for my waist line, but also shows in blotchy and impure skin. I am slowly working back to eating healthy again, but to remedy my immediate skincare issues I have relied on two amazing products. You’ll have to wait for the second one till next week, but the first is Trilogy’s Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+.
A couple of weeks ago, I started testing my first Freedom Makeup products after finding a couple of lovely items in my giveaway prize from Rachael at Helpless Whilst Drying. I love the budget make-up from sister brand Makeup Revolution, but hadn’t had a chance to see if Freedom was just as good. Spoiler: they are!
Organic Surge is an affordable organic brand that has been around for a while, but I just hadn’t had a chance to try it. I was getting curious, so I ordered a couple of different things to test including this Super Fresh Deodorant.
My nails have been acting up horribly these past few months. I have to admit that the amount of typing I have been doing hasn’t been easy for them, but it is no excuse for continuing to split at the weirdest places or just breaking completely. I hope I have found the answer though.
Today I thought I would share my current and slightly bizarre summer fashion obsession: berry. Wine red isn’t exactly a typical summery shade, but I seem to be drawn to it lately in both make-up and clothes.
Oh the smell of coffee. I remember hating it as a child, but I came around after discovering the lovely perks of caffeine. If you are a fellow coffee lover, you really ought to try the Bean Burst scrubs. These amazing scrubs combine actual coffee with a while bunch of natural exfoliators and essential oils.

Hello sunshine! I am typing this post on my balcony on a lovely day and I am loving it. Still, hot summer weather does present some challenges on the make-up front. I love going minimal on hot sunny days, but that isn’t really an option for summer events were you want to look your best. Wedding season is upon us after all. Let’s have a look at the product I rely on to keep my make-up looking pristine no matter what: the Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray.
