MAC Products which are worth keeping in your collection

The title of this post sounds hella shady right? Oops! It wasn’t my intention. I just remember when MAC products made up 100% of my makeup collection. The days when MAC seemed to be the only brand that catered for women with my skin tone. I used to go into MAC and feel like I was in a candy store spending all my hard earned coins. Nowadays, there is a lot more variety on the market for women of colour, more options and let’s be honest they are better options. I don’t think I could…

Cleansing Oils | Do they work?

Cleansing your face with oils sounds weird doesn’t it? The thought of rubbing oil on my face to remove makeup sounded like someone just told me to rub fried chicken over my body! I just didn’t get it. How does it work? I have oily skin so why would I rub more oil onto my face?! I was completely baffled by the whole idea. I am used to my skin feeling squeaky clean after I wash it, and I mean squeaky and tight! That is my clean feeling. To my ladies with dry skin I…

The best UK Beauty Blogs

I love reading lists of the best beauty blogs. I find it personally inspiring to see people killing it in the beauty industry, because I know how hard they work to produce good content week after week. And these bloggers keep it consistent, which is not easy. Trust me.  However, let’s be real,  I really dislike reading lists upon lists of ‘great’ beauty blogs with no women or person of colour present in the list. It makes me shake my head, like what?! Are you telling me that there are no people of colour doing great…

My LA/IMATS Makeup, Beauty and other random stuff Haul | Reviews and First Impressions

Hey guys, I am back from my trip to Los Angeles and it was great. Los Angeles has always been on my bucket list of places to go and I am so glad I went. The people there are so cool and so chilled out. You could strike a conversation up with anyone, anywhere without feeling weird. I loved the fact that everyone has a side hustle and is creative, it was quite motivating. So obviously I came back with many goodies and do a post about it, even though I will probably have to…

Hey guys, I am back with another post. To all my ladies who want to look good without breaking the bank, here are some ‘secret’ tips. *** Get Samples.

So I went in to space NK and asked for a sample and they were happy to give it to me. The thing with samples, all you have to do is ask, and the…
