Everyday Make up!

I love a lie-in first thing in the morning, so I usually only give myself 5-10 minutes for make up application. As long as I look presentable, i'm happy. I don't need to impress anyone at work!

I store all my everyday make up in this Betsey Johnson Leopard Print Bag from T K Maxx :)

Here's the basics:

Revlon Colorstay Foundation in 150 Buff £11.99

This has been my holy grail foundation for almost two years! My skin breaks out so easily and this is the only thing that i've been able to stick with!

Applied with a sponge

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in 001 Transparent £3.99 

I am a powder freak and go through one of these every 3 to 4 weeks! Excessive I know hence i don't use a high end powder! Also, an added bonus is that we have a Rimmel Stand at work so with my discount, i get it for around £3.20!

Applied with Eco Tools powder Brush

Stila Blush & Bronzer Duo in Pink glow

This was a bargain at T K MAXX for £3.99!

Applied with Eco Tools Blush Brush

No 7 Eyeliner pencil in Blackest Black £7.75 from Boots

Eyeliner is my must have product! i rarely leave the house without it. The No 7 eyeliner has good staying power on both upper and lower lash lines and i always buy one whenever i have a £5 voucher as they work out really cheap!

Maybelline The Falsies Black Drama Mascara £8.99ish
No 7 Eyelash Curler £8ish

This has lasted ages and i'm waiting for it to run out but it doesn't seem to be getting close. I just curl my lashes first and then  pile on the coats of mascara :)

Bourjois Eyeshadow in BEIGE ROSE £4.99ish

I just use this all over my lid to brighten my eyes and cover up any mascara mistakes ....shhh.

L'oreal Caresse lipstick 03 Lovely Rose £7.99
Revlon Colorburst 008 Peony

And, if i've got an extra few minutes in the morning:

Maxfactor eyebrow pencil in Hazel 
Real Techniques Stippling Brush £11.99
Stila Eyeshadow in Cloud

My Roaccutane Journey

This post is more audience specific than usual but I hope it may be of help to anyone going through a similar situation. I want to give you an insight into my Roaccutane journey as I know I often turned to searching Google for answers. Never did I think i’d be posting this on the internet but here goes... Onto the back story, I had oily/ combination skin as a teenager and suffered with the usual teenage spots that cleared up as I approached my 20’s. Later, I was on the combined contraceptive pill and decided to take a break from it when I was around 23. I stopped it for 6 months and was hit with a backlash. Stopping the pill and a change in hormones is the only explanation I can put my breakout down to. My skin broke out significantly. I had courses of Lymecycline prescribed and Zineryt (Zinc & Erythromycin) Topical Lotion. With minimal success from these, I was referred to a dermatologist. BEFORE Before all of this, I could probably count the number of times

Statement Necklaces - NEXT

I have been searching for the perfect statement necklaces for so long without success. I'm a bit too fussy you see. The majority of statement necklaces in the shops are gold and it's rare for me to wear gold jewellery; I much prefer silver! In all the shops i've looked in, there has always been something not quite right: too big, too spiky or the wrong colour. I'd actually given up hunting for one but this morning, I ventured into NEXT. Next isn't somewhere that I usually go into but I was surprised at how many nice things they have and there were definitely a few that I wanted! I couldn't choose between the following two necklaces so treated myself to both! They were quite hard to photograph but i've linked the items so you can check out the stock photos on the NEXT website. Mix Plate And Crystal Effect Statement Necklace £18 Short Crystal Effect Necklace £14 Other items I considered buying: This grey jewelled clutch bag ca

Top Nail Varnish Picks For Autumn/ Winter

Autumn/ Winter to me means wearing a lot of grey and black with bursts of khaki and burgundy for colour. Literally, if I see anything khaki coloured, i'm in love and now that's transitioned into my nail varnish thanks to last month's Glossybox.  Here are my current go to nail varnishes, although I did place a Boots order on Cyber Monday for some of the Revlon Gel Envy polishes so there could be some additions to this soon! Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish in 'Kensington High Street' Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in 'Plums the Word' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Barely There' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Glossy Seal' Nails Inc London Polish in 'Battersea Park'       Color Club Nail Varnishes have a great opaque consistency and you can easily get away with one coat. I actually prefer the regular Nails Inc varnishes over the gel effect ones but I love this burgundy shade. Sally Hansen varnishes have a great
