My holy grail products.

These products are staples in my makeup bag. Ones that I repurchase and use on a daily basis. My favourites that never let me down. 


Too faced sweet peach pallete

Unless you’ve been living under a rock these past few months this palette is crazy popular. Not only are the colours gorgeous, it fricking smells amazing. Who doesn’t want to put a smelly pink eyeshadow on every morning!? Also the pay off is so good, they blend amazing and last all day. This is the first high end pallete that I can see a massive difference from high street. Total fave. 

Mac fix+

This is another one probably every one has. If not, get one. It has so many uses. My favourite is to apply shimmer eyeshadows. Also it’s great over makeup, under makeup or to make any product more pigmented. 

Maybelline lash sensational 

I literally have used this mascara for years. I can’t find a better one. It lengthens and adds volume. Plus it’s really cheap. Win. 

Becca highlighter in champagne pop

Thanks to Jacqueline Hill we all got our glow on last year. This costs a bloody fortune and I’m getting so low that I’m willing it to last. There are billions of amazing highlighters out now but I always end up reaching for this one when I want that extra something.

Collection 24 hour felt liner 

I love me a good flick. This is the only eyeliner I can use, and that doesn’t dry out. It’s super easy and so so cheap.

Urban decay all nighter foundation

This is a recent addition and the only foundation I’ve liked in a while. It’s really full coverage and lasts. I’m not 100% addicted, but I hate foundation shopping, it’s a pain trying to find my pale colour and one that doesn’t break me out, so this is staying for the time being. If you know any other ones I could try let me know!

My 10 top highstreet products!


Hi guys,

As much as I love splashing out on some gorgous high end products, most of the time my money goes on reliable brands in boots and superdrug, especially with the state of my student loan…

Anyway, some products don’t need you need to waste your money on high end, because they do a pretty damn good job anyway. So these are my favourite go to affordable products…

1. Revlon Colourstay Foundation.

So if you’ve read any of my previous posts you’ll know my absolute love for this. It’s now my only foundation that I chose over many high end products. And recently I repurchased and it now comes with a pump… Win!


2. Makeup revolution blush palette in ultra spice

So this blush palette contains 8 shades, including 2 baked shimmers. The bronze colours I also use as eyeshadow or a sort of bronzer in the summer. It’s quite pigmented and contains a range of colours.

3. Kiko Milano bronzer

I love this bronzer, it’s matte and perfect for both an all over sun kissed look, and as a contour. It’s blendable and pigmented. It also comes with a mirror perfect for in your handbag.

4. MUA shimmer highlighter

This is a recent perchase and I’ll admit, it’s not the same quality as high end products but for £3! You can’t go wrong. It’s super pigmented and easy to apply.

5. Maybelline lash sensational mascara

I’ve spoke about this a million times… Best. Mascara. EVER! And now I’ve saw a new version released with oil to nurish the lashes…

6. Revlon colour burst balm stain

I got this free in a set recently and didn’t have high hopes. But I actually love it for every day. It’s super moisturising and makes your lips look healthy. It provides the right amount of pigment perfect for a day look. Also it smells amazing. 

7. Makeup revolution lipstick in rebel with cause

I’ve had this lipstick a while and I love it. It doesn’t dry your lips and stays on well… All for a pound! 

8. Kate moss lipstick in 01 

Another absolute favourite of mine. I wear this nearly every day I love it. And it’s matte but doesn’t dry your lips.

9. MUA lip liner in caramel nougat

This is also a pound! I always pair it with the Kate moss lipstick. It may need reapplying a few times through out the day but it’s the perfect nude.

10. Rimmel Stay Matte Translucent powder 

I do want to try a loose powder eventually but for now this is perfect and well loved as you can see. I always carry it with me for top ups throughout the day.

That’s is for now. Let me know any others I can try!

My Skin Care Routine and Products.

WP_20160123_003 [41375]

Hi everyone,

So I’m not an expert but i thought i’d share what skincare products I use that work for me. Everyone has different skin types, but i’d class myself as normal to combination, so these products might work for you. Also, they’re all affordable, as i don’t think you necessarily need to splash out on designer products.

Morning:

Simple Moisturising Face Wash – I’ve only had this for a few weeks, but it leaves your face refreshed and clean, without stripping off all the moisture and leaving it dry.

Garnier Fresh Refining Toner – This feels so refreshing in the morning. You can feel it working to minimise pores and purify the skin. I’ve tried a few highstreet toners and this is the only one that doesn’t leave my skin feeling sticky.

No7 Essential Moisture Day Cream – I bought this over christmas, as I wanted a better quality moisturiser that was affordable. The pot is annoying as the glass makes your think its bigger than it is, but as its very rich you don’t need to use much. Well worth the money.

Boots Essential Eye Cream – I know this is very cheap and not the best quality, but as I’m only young I only wanted a product that would reduce the puffiness of my sleepy eyes in the morning. It seems to be doing the job.

Rimmel Fix and Perfect Primer – I pop this on before makeup, and it leaves my skin silky smooth. It’s the perfect base for foundation, and is a great product for the price!

Night:

Nip and Fab Deep Cleansing Fix – I use this to take off my makeup, with a damp flannel. It is awesome. It smells great and melts makeup off. This is sometimes on offer in Superdrug so keep your eyes peeled. So worth it.

Garnier Toner

Nivea Regenerating Night Cream – Putting this on before bed leaves your skin feeling so smooth and soft in the morning. It’s rich and super moisturising, which is what you need overnight. It lasts forever and is so cheap. Bonus.

Let me know any other products I can try, I like to experiment with new products! Hopefully this gives you some ideas too.
