The Beauty Edition: Budget eBay Eyeshadow Palette

So, September swings around fast doesn’t it? I think I even caught a glimpse of Christmas cards in store the other day… *shocked face* Although I’m not ready to welcome the Autumnal months with open arms just yet (still clutching onto that sweet Summer heat) there’s no harm in a little preparation so I turned to eBay for some help. Beauty bargains are my absolute favourite, don’t get me wrong I wouldn’t decline a Chanel lipstick here and there but there’s something about finding a little gem and saving some pennies for much needed weekend cocktails (although saying that, count me out of the bubbles for a month…

PARTY SEASON LUST LIST

The Beauty Edition: Bare It All CC Base Coat by Leighton Denny

Newsflash! There’s a new nail treatment in town.. Nailcare has never been one of my strengths (excuse the pun) but I have definitely started to take it a little more seriously. Luckily, my nails have always been on the healther side generally and I don’t have too many problems. A career in beauty comes with a certain level of standards, and I personally think a presentable manicure is one of them especially if meeting new people is on the agenda, there is nothing worse than greeting a formal handshake with a half-arsed, chipped manicure. I switch up my polish frequently, I like to change the colour a lot and this…

The Beauty Edition: Six Step Winged Eyeliner

If I had to pick just one signature make-up look, then for me, it will always be in the form of winged eyeliner as I just wouldn’t be seen without it! Applying eyeliner is a true art form and I salute those that can do it so well. I wouldn’t call myself an eyeliner expert but I have over time, and with practise, got that chic cat flick in the bag. It’s not just make-up, it’s definitely part of my style and it just completes my look perfectly, which I would describe as generally quite girly but with an edgy twist – think mom jeans and slogan…

The Beauty Edition: Joan Collins Class Act Lash Treatment

Right, hands up then, who absolutely sucks at applying false lashes? Me! Why can’t we all just be blessed with naturally long, luscious lashes. Sigh! Now, I can’t wave a magic wand for that but I can introduce you all to something that may possibly help.. Working within the beauty industry opens my eyes up to a variety of brands, now and then something gets plonked on my desk that genuinely intruiges me. I’m certain that the majority of my followers would turn their head at Joan Collins Timeless Beauty, right? What if I told you that I may have an affordable dupe for the revolutionary Revitalash.. oh I thought that…

The Beauty Edition: Spring Skincare Essentials 

Another beauty post I hear you cry.. I’m spoiling you aren’t I? To me, a skincare routine in Spring/Summer is just as important as throughout the Winter. Winter is harsh but so can our little friend the Sun be and not only that, a sweltering face is no fun for make up application. It’s no wonder I’m amping up the beauty content, working for some fantastic brands has really ignited my passion for it all. Obviously it may sound like I’m biased but I have been using James Read Tan way before I started working for the brand itself, if you check back to Christmas I was raving about it then.…
