My simple and easy night time skincare routine

As you may or may not have gathered from me is that complicated, long winded skincare routines are not for me. I just don’t got the time to be doing 5 skincare steps every.single.night! I know some people love it but not me. I try it, then I abandon it by day 3! It just isn’t my thing. I stumbled on this routine, a few weeks ago and I have seen a noticeable difference in my skin. I typically exfoliate every morning, so I don’t do it at night. My dead skin builds up on…

The Best ‘Black Girl Friendly’ Eyeshadow Palettes to Snap up this Black Friday

I usually don’t care for Black Friday. It was only introduced here in the U.K a few years ago and since then we have been confronted with scenes of people fighting for tv or other gadgets. Miss me with that mess please! This year I noticed that it wasn’t just electronics you could get a deal on. High street stores and online stores were doing Black Friday deals on makeup and beauty products as well. Not bad! Here are some eyeshadow palettes great for medium to dark skin tones which I am lusting over or…

Makeup and Beauty tips for medium to dark skin tones | Lessons that I have recently learnt

I am constantly learning new ways or methods to apply my makeup. I do not believe makeup application is an exact science. I have watched countless of Insta videos where at first I am horrified at a dark skin girl using concealer that is waayyyyyyyyyyyy too light, but then she blends it out and does her thing, and it comes out looking fine. Im not saying that it tempts me to go for a concealer that is 5 shades lighter, but it just made me realise that I can be quick to judge sometimes, you…

The Winter Coat and Snakeskin | My Autumn essentials

Autumn is one of my favourite seasons of the year. Autumn and Spring (Spring simply because it is my birthday month!). Autumn is a time where you start packing away those summer clothes. You know that summer dress that shows off every likkle piece of skin or that shirt that is so thin but gorgeous. You can only wear it when the weather is guaranteed to be over 30 degrees! Your skin is glowing or super oily, depending on your skin type! Vitamin D everywhere! Everything looks better when the sun is shining doesn’t it?…

The best Makeup and Beauty Buys under £25!

I don’t know about you guys, but this time of the year when I start reviewing how the year has gone, I take a look at my finances and think how could I have done things better. When I am reviewing my finances, my progress, my life, I tend to try and cut back on things I want and focus on things that I actually need. Makeup for me is a luxury and can be an expensive ‘want’ sometimes and I know that there are times you just want affordable makeup! What I love about…

The Ordinary Foundation on Medium to Dark Skin Tones | Is it worth the hype?

If you are like me, when you think of foundation, you don’t think of the price being anything less than £20. I think my main exception to this rule has been the L’Oreal True Match which is £9.99. Now, when I heard about a foundation for £6, I couldn’t believe it. Admittedly, I was also very sceptical. Will it make me break out out? Will even be good?! What foundation am I talking about, I hear you ask? The Ordinary Foundation Coverage Foundation. I knew they did skin care but I didn’t know they did…

October Favourites | Beauty and Makeup Products I have been loving

Can you imagine that we are in November already?! This year has gone so fast. Before we know it, it will be Christmas already! I am going to be honest with you guys, taking care of my skin has not been a priority at the moment. I don’t know about you but when I get overwhelmed or super stressed, my skin suffers. Either because I am comfort eating so I break out, or my skincare routine goes out of the window. However, in the last couple of weeks, I have re-established my skincare routine and…
