Review: Inglot YSM Cream Foundation

Review: Inglot YSM Cream Foundation

I have heard so many mixed reviews about the Inglot YSM Cream Foundation. I wanted to write this post as I think a lot of the time this product is misunderstood and not used in the correct way.  Believe me, when it is used correctly it is a super foundation....
Top Picks: Illuminating Bases

Top Picks: Illuminating Bases

Summer skin for me should be glowing, radiant and luminous BUT……without looking like an oily mess. I love a full coverage foundation and don’t like to change this too much when the weather gets warmer so instead I tend to apply an illuminating base under my foundation or sometimes I...
Rimmel Foundations: The Lowdown

Rimmel Foundations: The Lowdown

Mosaic Good Evening Kit

When I trained initially as a nail tech the course I did was pretty bad. In my opinion it didn’t give me enough knowledge and information to start working. I then discovered Irina Kiseleva and decided to do some up skill courses with her and I never looked back. She is an absolute genius and...

Catrice Liquid Camouflage HD Concealer

Catrice Liquid Camouflage HD Concealer

What do I look for in a concealer? No matter where I apply it on my face, it absolutely needs to have some decent coverage but without looking cakey or dry. Finding this can be tricky because often high coverage concealers, particularly budget buys can have a matte finish and as a result can leave the skin looking...
Priming with The Ordinary

Priming with The Ordinary

Why do we use makeup primers? We mainly use them to prep the skin for any makeup we want to apply on top. They create a barrier between the skin and other makeup products allowing the foundation etc to sit on, instead of sinking into the skin, giving your makeup a more even, smooth application and finish. If...

Too Faced do some of my favourite beauty products. ‘Better than Sex’ is my go to mascara, no matter what the occasion and their ‘Chocolate Bar Palette’ and ‘Chocolate Soleil Bronzer’ are worthy of holy grail status in my collection at this point.

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Concealer

It can be so hard to find a concealer that works! So, when I found two, what I would classify as must haves, in the past few months, I was totally blown away.

RCMA Face Powders

RCMA Face Powders

Face Powders for me are an essential step in my everyday makeup routine. I always find a light dusting of setting powder over cream products makes anything applied on top blend a lot easier. Because of my love for a good face powder I have tried so many!! However, I have struggled to find one...
