Currently Loving: The Light Base

3 April 2017


Day to day life doesn't always call for the heavy duty concealer and the hide-it-all foundation. Recently I've been opting for a much more natural base - dewy and not at all cakey.

Kiko Dark Circle Concealer: This little beauty has lived in my collection for a while now and I've never taken time to sing its praises. This is the perfect orange toned concealer that cancels out any dark bags that have crept up overnight. It's not too thick but has the perfect amount of coverage. The only thing this product doesn't do is brighten my under-eye, hence where my Maybelline Eraser Eye comes in handy. I've been enjoying layering a small amount of the Eraser eye over where I have applied the Kiko Concealer just to add a small amount more coverage and brighten the area. These two together are a miracle worker. To apply both I have been using the £1.99 bargain set of brushes from Ebay - see my review on them here.

L'Oreal Lumi Cushion: This cushion foundation is the quickest foundation to apply - one of the many reasons why I've been reaching for it so much recently. This foundation is light to medium coverage but is build-able on the areas where you need a bit more help. This, alongside my trusty Beauty Blender are the perfect combo for a light day to day base.

DIY // Wall Grid

13 February 2017

Before moving into my house I was glued to Pinterest, searching for cute (and cheap) ways to decorate my bedroom. It seemed that with every other click a wall grid would crop up and of course, that meant I needed one. I found that many websites were selling their own versions of these but I couldn't find one that wasn't crazy overpriced, so I took matters into my own hands and did a touch of DIY!

This was ridiculously simple to make and cost just a fraction of the price compared to online retailers. To make one all you will need is some mesh panel (you can grab one of these from your local hardware store or garden centre) and some spray paint - of course I went for copper.

Full Face of Favourites: January

23 January 2017

As I'm writing this I am currently at home on Christmas break and that means I only have a makeup bag's worth of makeup. Being the addict that I am it takes me a while to pick and chose what few products are coming home with me. Despite squeezing in enough makeup to last a few years into my poor bag, I have ended up wearing pretty much the same makeup look everyday made up of all of my current favourites. See what I'm loving in this Full Face of Favourites!

Jeans Appreciation Post

16 January 2017

I have a feeling these jeans are going to split opinions but I'm a little bit in love. I have been searching for a pair of jeans just like these for the longest time but until now I've failed to find some that don't completely break the bank. For just £16 from George at Asda I couldn't leave the store without these (despite my mum informing me how hideous they are!). These jeans are boyfriend style, so loose fitting, and come with various bits of embroidery. So, do you love or hate them?

Ebay Bargains // £1.99 Brush Set

9 January 2017

Who doesn't love a good bargain? Late one night I found myself scrolling through the world of makeup on EBay and amongst the thousands of knock-off Naked Palettes I found this brush set. At just £1.99 with free UK delivery I felt like I couldn't not at least try these out. I am ridiculously lazy when it comes to washing my makeup brushes so when it comes to finding a clean blending brush I almost always have no hope so this set of four multipurpose brushes are a god-send. 
For just under 50p each I wasn't expecting the hairs to feel so soft and for them to do such a good job. Yes I'm sure after a few washes they may start to look a little worse for wear but right now I am pretty happy I picked these up. As I mentioned before the kabuki style means this brushes are multipurpose - I'm currently using the slightly angled brush to apply concealer under the eye and love the finish.

If you're interested in picking a set up for yourself you can find them here!

University Bedroom Tour #3

10 October 2016

I'm now in my final year of uni. So so scary. 100% not ready to be a teacher yet but it seems that time is FLYING. Another year means another bedroom tour. It's so important to make your uni bedroom into a home away from home. And, personally, I love what I've done with the place...
