Spend or Save | NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer vrs LA Pro Girl Concealer

  I know people who will swear by NARS everything. NARS foundation, NARS concealer, even NARS clothes (I am joking, NARS don’t do clothes!).  I try not to follow what every Youtuber buys, but sometimes the struggle is intense! I find myself thinking ‘it might work for me!’ so I caved in and bought NARS Creamy Concealer and NARS foundations (so much for resilience!). So far, they have been really good. I have used LA Girl Pro Concealer ever since I have started highlighting and contouring my face. It is a great product to use…

BHA | Will this sort out your oily skin?

I have heard about how amazing BHA products are for people who suffer from oily skin and hyper-pigmentation. To be honest, I really didn’t know too much about it, and how it could make a difference to my oily skin. I have never really been a sucker for skin care products, and have not taken care of my skin until now. I just knew I had super oily skin which caused acne breakouts. I had hyper-pigmentation caused by eczema on my face and the texture of my skin was not smooth. There have been plenty of…

The best Colourpop Lipsticks for dark skin

Colourpop have so many different colours in their Ultra Matte Lipstick range, and it can daunting when trying to decide which lipstick compliments your skin tone. Especially when you can’t try it on. I hope this post helps you guys to see what these lipsticks look like on someone with a dark skin tone (my foundation shade is NW45). These colours generally suit all skin tones, but I understand the struggle that women with medium – dark skin tones have when trying to buy new lipsticks. My lips were crying for moisture after these swatches, so please…

Buying Colourpop in the UK | Part 1

ColourPop’s popularity has gone through the roof with their great quality but very affordable products i.e eyeshadows and lipsticks. They have products in a variety of shades which will suit different skin tones. Everyone can find a shade of lipstick or eyeshadow that suits them. Their Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks are great. The lipsticks dry matte and do not budge all day. There is no need to reapply. Did I mention that they are cheap as chips?! But….they do not ship to the UK or internationally! You cant even use a UK debit/credit card or…

Top Vamp Lipsticks

Winter for me is all about vampy nails, vampy lips and bringing out your inner gothic style. Ladies with a dark skin tone and full lips, please don’t shy away from wearing dark lipsticks. These colours work well for ladies of all skin tones. It is the perfect season to wear dark lipsticks without looking like you are trying to steal the sunshine during summer! However, you still rock dark lips in the summer as you are free to wear whatever lipstick you like, whatever the season!  I didn’t use a lipliner for any of…

Fabulous Fridays…

It took me ages to learn how to apply false lashes! I watched in envy as Youtubers applied their falsies in seconds. When I tried, it took 10-15 mins per eye and the lashes would still drop off!!!! By using this method, it became easier and quicker to apply my lashes.   TIP OF THE DAY If your lashes are new, before you apply them, wrap them around a pencil or pen for a few seconds so that it matches the curve of your eyes. *** After applying a thin strip of glue to your lashes,…
