Contouring with Sleek, Seventeen, MUA and sometimes YSL

I use a combination of products to contour. I try to keep it subtle because full-on contouring for an average person in the daytime can look too “done” or over the top. I’ll turn it up a notch if I’m going out at night. Let’s face it, I’m not going to get snapped by the paparazzi and put…

Contouring is amazing! I love sculpting my face!

Although it has been made popular relatively recently by Kim Kardashian West, I’m sure it has been a make-up artist’s secret for decades. I can see why.

It gives the effect of instant weight loss for the face which I love because compared with my teenage self, I’m sure my face is rounder. My friends, family and probably you guys think I’m crazy…

Review: Lee Stafford Arganoil from Morocco Regime

Lee Stafford Arganoil from Morocco

I bought the Lee Stafford Arganoil from Morocco set because I thought if it contained argan oil, it must be nourishing for curly hair. I also wanted to try something from the high street rather than a luxury salon brand, in an attempt to save some money!

My initial concern was that it was a four step regime rather than a three step. In these times of co-washing…

Review: No7 Beautiful Skin Hot Cloth Cleanser

No7 Beautiful Skin Hot Cloth Cleanser

No7 Beautiful Skin Hot Cloth Cleanser

The No7 Beautiful Skin Hot Cloth Cleanser was the first hot cloth cleanser I have tried. I wasn’t really sure what the fuss was all about. Maybe it’s because I have never had a facial.

This is a lovely thick cream with a delicate, relaxing scent. It leaves my skin feeling pampered and clean but not dry. It comes with the muslin cloth for the whole…

Today is the last day of Chocolate Week so I thought I’d do a little post on my chocolate themed make-up.

I didn’t create a look because I don’t think I could do better than this look from the chocolate festival earlier in the year.

If I did create a look, I’d have plenty of chocolatey make-up to choose from!

Review: Ilia Balmy Nights

Ilia Balmy Nights

The Ilia Balmy Nights is a truly luxurious lip scrub.

I bought it (from Net-a-Porter) because I wanted a no-mess, no fuss scrub to smooth out my lips and prepare them for matte lipsticks.

It has sumptuous metallic packaging so it feels like a treat every time I use it. The scrub itself is fragrance free and seems to be set in a tough petroleum jelly-type substance which keeps it…

I wore this look with a white Grecian style maxi dress to attend a party. I needed to inject a little colour into the outfit!

The look centred around my eyes using mainly Anita Grant products which I’ve had for ages but still hadn’t used and my new Kiko lipstick which I was desperate to try.
