Since we're about to swoop right into the weekend I thought there was no better time to write this post than now. Of course if you're going out partying over the weekend, your night time makeup might be a little more dramatic but for me - during the day I always keep things simple. If I'm not working i'm usually just lazing around the house or spending time with family so I don't feel the need to pack on any heavy duty makeup.
There are a few products that I've been reaching for a lot on more 'natural' makeup days, so I thought I'd share them with you all. I'm a big fan of urban decay when it comes to eyeshadows, as I'm sure you all know and I find the Naked 2 Basics palette really hits the spot when I'm looking for a little definition but nothing to heavy. Of course I could totally use this for an all out dramatic smokey eye but it makes life simple if you're just looking for a little something through the crease.

I'm sharing one of those limited edition products today, you know the ones you buy and they're so pretty you don't want to use them.. Yup, the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Palette is a winner, so prepare your bank accounts and get ready to end up buying your 902467th neutral palette. Only difference - this is one you'll definitely want to use as the colour selection is so pretty.

Hello everyone, as you can probably tell - I'm fighting with the miserable Scottish weather right now. If theres a lot of variation in the quality of my photos over the next month or so, I do apologise. I hope that over the next couple of months the weather will pick up and that I'll be back in the photo taking game! Today I wanted to chat about a few products that I love, ones I would recommend to friends if they were looking to try something new.
My first choice would definitely be the Clarisonic, if I had a friend who was having skin issues its definitely the first thing I'd suggest for them to try! I've recently been using the Deep Pore brush head and have noticed even more improvement in my skin. The Clarins Instant Lip Perfectors are one of those products I love and always end up coming back too, they're so easy to wear and I'm pretty sure theres a shade to suit absolutely everyone. Concealer wise, Urban Decay Naked Skin has been the only thing to touch my face since I first tried it. I'm on to my fourth tube and I can't get enough, it covers dark circles, spots and everything in between. It doesn't cling to my dry patches and it stays put on my oily t-zone - perfection. For brushes, the first place I look is always Real Techniques.

I think True Match is one of those foundations that everyone has tried and that everyone seems to love. Of course everyone has different opinions of everything but as a general rule people appear to have nothing but praises to say about this foundation.
Fairly recently I re-purchsed this foundation as I had ran out of my previous bottle, on searching for this again I realised L'Oreal had entirely repackaged one of my all time favourites.

Hello everyone! Today I want to have a quick chat about some of the products I'm currently loving from the high street. I don't think you need to spend a fortune to find something thats great so without further ado I shall introduce you to the products I've been using religiously for the past few months.
Firstly, and probably my most favourite drugstore product ever is the Maybelline Brow Drama. It just gets the job done without any fuss, it has a cute little mascara wand style applicator which has a rounded part at the bottom. It allows me to coat my eyebrows super quick and keeps them in place all day. Another more recent favourite is definitely the L'Oreal Infallible Matte Foundation, its pretty much everything I could ever want. Its matte without being cakey, gives a great medium coverage and stays on my face all day. I love it. I'm not one for making a huge fuss with my hair but the Tresemme Perfectly Undone Sea Salt Spray definitely has its place in my everyday routine.
Hello everyone! I'm going to be blabbing about my skin again today.. I'm sorry! I feel like I've been using the Pixi Glow Tonic for such a long time but I genuinely just haven't been able to make my mind up about it.
When I first used this my skin wasn't having the best of times and I feel like it really wasn't the right time for me to be using this product. I know so many people love this and swear by it in their everyday routine but my experience was a little different. Initially I found it made my skin really dry, it made my dry patches worse and my skin just felt totally off balance. I was using it everyday, but for me I think thats just too much. I know its supposed to be less harsh than a manual exfoliator but my skin just didn't take very kindly.

Hello my friends, I hope you're all well. I thought I'd make a post today talking a little bit about my skin, I've been fighting with acne since November last year after nearly 3 years of a relatively clear face. As you can imagine, the acne coming back was much to my disappointment and I felt really frustrated that I couldn't find a solution.
I'd been thinking about getting a Clarisonic for a really long time, even before my skin decided to go completely crazy. Just after Christmas certain models had a generous discount on the Boots website, and with my skin being the way it was I decided to bite the bullet and spend the money.
