The Perfect Lip Duo


I'm a self confessed lipstick addict, and with drawers full to the brim with lipstick products I just love to sport different looks for different occasions. However as of late there's been a combination of two products that I've been wearing lately which create the most gorgeous everyday lip and for me is the perfect lip duo, and naturally I just had to share with you!

Brand Focus: My Top NYX Picks

Brand Focus: My Top NYX Picks

NYX is one of those brands that over the past year or so has really crept up in terms of popularity, and to be honest apart from a few bits I purchased years ago I hadn't really given it a proper go - please tell me you remember it being stocked in your local Next or independent makeup store? So now that NYX has become more accessible in the UK, popping up at beauty events such as Clothes Show, and in stocked in stores such as Boots and Selfridges, I couldn't resist stocking up on their products, and I wanted to share with you my top NYX picks!

Benefit the Porefessional Matte Rescue


By now you'll know that I love a good makeup release, and this one is no different. Benefit are back with a new member of their Porefessional family, this time with the Porefessional Matte Rescue Invisible Mattifying Gel, naturally I knew I had to give this a shot after already loving their previous Porefessional releases - and spoiler alert I'm loving this already!

Benefit Porefessional Matte Rescue instantly minimises pore appearance, described as a lightweight, water-based gel which overpowers shine and absorbs excess oil, leaving a natural-looking matte finish. Skin feels smooth and refreshed, containing diamond powder known for its soft-focus pore-blurring effect.

The Mauve Lipstick Edit

LtoR: Stila Patina, Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Lipstick in Serenity, Sephora Cream Lip Stain Marvellous Mauve, MAC Brave, MAC Mehr, Bourjois Nude-ist, MAC Twig

Over the past year or so it seems that we have all fallen in love with mauve or dusky rose lips or as I like to call it a 90s lip, all thanks to a certain Kylie Jenner. It seems that the mauve storm has really hit us hard, and we are vying over the trend, making it perfectly acceptable to order several shades despite them all being practically the same. As mauves and dusty roses have become my favourite shade as of late to wear I wanted to share with you my favourite mauve lipsticks.

January is always an exciting time for lipstick lovers, as MAC launch their latest Viva Glam offerings, and this year Ariana Grande is the latest of a long list of celebrities to put her name to the worthy cause. The MAC Viva Glam range serves as part of their MAC Aids Fund which donates its profits to men, women and children who are affected by Aids and HIV, and let's be honest a little splurge is always necessary when you are donating to such a good cause.

Top Primers Worth the Extra Step

LtoR: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Oil Free, Mac Prep + Prime Skin Base Visage, Benefit Porefessional, Too Faced Hangover Primer, Make Up For Ever Step 1 Hydrating Base

Primers are a real marmite product of the beauty world, I find that you either love or hate them. For the longest time I never thought that I needed to introduce primers into my makeup routine as it just seemed an unnecessary extra step which in cost took more time in a morning. However fast forward a couple of years and now I can't go my daily makeup routine without primers, as I not only find that they make my makeup last longer but it makes such a huge difference to pretty much all aspects of my makeup, helping it to just look more put together and with a nicer finish. So I wanted to share with you my top primers that are worth the extra step in your makeup routine.
