Beauty Wishlist

I love a good beauty wish list. It seems whenever I stick something on a list it either gets done quick or it makes me work harder in order to get items. 2016 has made me have many beauty lists. The contour palettes and the liquid lipsticks have come aplenty and don’t even get me started on the makeup advent calendars. So this is my beauty wish list, the good the bad and the ugly. Every girl needs a beautiful set of brushes, and i, am no exception. Yes i have brushes in the plenty but  ...

Body What?

Everyone, absolutely everyone (in the UK at least) has heard of The Body Shop. It was one of the first international cosmetics companies to introduce fair trade to the cosmetics and toiletries industry in 1987! Crazy huh? So, lately social media has been a platform to hundreds of MLM companies struggling to make their mark on society. I personally have tried a few of the brands products, from Actiderm to Younique (my fave) to Nuskin and Forever Living. Everyone (lets face it) are sick of  ...

Matte Liquid Lipsticks

I have been on the hunt for a Liquid Matte Lipstick for a few months now and have tried around 7 different brands only to find they wear quickly or rub off easily. After being recommended by an MUA friend i finally ordered two beautiful shades of Hydra-Matte Liquid Lipstick from Gerard Cosmetics. I was a little dubious at first as they do not have any UK stores but risked the US online purchase. I need not have been worried. For starters their delivery was quick and I had no problems at  ...

Hair growth products- Farce or fave?

Hair care products have always been a farce for me. I never feel they do exactly what they say without a negative side effect. I once purchased a product that was meant to dazzle shine your hair. Needless to say it did shine my hair but only because the light bounced off the grease. So when, at the age of 24, my hair line started to recede, just like my fathers and his father before him, I was devastated. I found many products that claimed to promote hair growth but none actually seemed to  ...

Feel good makeup products for Spring

I always find that with winter i wear a thicker foundation, a heavier lipstick and a cake load of concealer. I don’t know whether i’m just trying to add an extra layer of warmth or hide dark, big bags under my eyes! But, SPRING IS HERE, and my makeup coverage is slowly thinning from its winter cake! Winter and Autumn months, for me, usually consist of a thick covering foundation, bronzer, concealer and a powder! Summer and Spring months are lightly dusted in BB Cream, a thin  ...

MLM Companies

What is MLM? Well in short it means multi level marketing! It is a marketing strategy in which the sales force is compensated not only for sales they generate, but also for the sales of the other salespeople that they recruit. This recruited sales force is referred to as the participant’s “downline”, and can provide multiple levels of compensation. Firstly I would like to say MLM is NOT a pyramid scheme. How? Well If the money you make is based on your sales to the public,  ...

Are you a Fake Tan Fanatic?

Fake tan is amazing…let’s face it, you can achieve almost any depth of tan all year round regardless of your natural colour…you don’t have the risk of skin cancer or premature ageing and the choice of products is almost unlimited! However, the mark is saturated with tanning products and it gets confusing which one is best for you! Should you choose a bottle that costs £50 or should you choose one that costs £5? What about a quick tanner or a gradual tanner? It can be quite costly to trial  ...

What’s your purpose?

I believe that everyone’s end goal in life is the same — “ to find happiness” or “to be happy”. In order to feel more fulfilled and find the path to happiness, we follow our passionsand purpose. But what is your purpose in life? I believe this is the question we ask ourselves over and over again. Discovering your true purpose in life and finding happiness within is hard. It’s an understanding that is hard for the human race to grasp. However we can do this by looking at; what you  ...

Pain is Beauty

You’re in labour, contractions are coming on strong, your due to start pushing- what’s the first thought that comes into your head? Maybe it’s, will it be a boy or girl? Or, this better be worth it? Or, By God this hurts… But for one woman it was, where’s my contour brush? This New York-based makeup artist shared images of herself propped up in a hospital bed surrounded by palettes as she applied a full face of product . . . despite contractions. She says, “I was pausing during  ...
