Empties #3

Beauty Skin Care Empties

I honestly didn’t expect to be posting another Empties post so quickly – it’s been almost two months since the last post, I guess time has just flown by!  Plus I’ve been doing mini purges as I’ve gone along.  I’m no longer holding on to products that just don’t work for me!  Plus I’m making […]

Simple, Minimal Makeup!

Recently I’ve been favouring simple, minimal makeup for work.  I’ve generally been a touch unwell, so I’ve either not had the time, or just not felt like wearing much.  So this is pretty much my go-to look with a touch of shimmer (remember that daytime spotlight look I did…well I’m still on that train).  So […]

Natural Bridal Makeup

I thought it about time I did  more natural look.  I’ve gone with a simple bridal look that is also an everyday look.  I’ve tried to prefect my base as much as possible and kept the eyes pretty simple. Unfortunately I didn’t managed to take photos of all the various steps, but I can show […]

Green Eyed Diva

I fancied something a tad dramatic. I primed my eyes with my mac painterly paint pot.  Then I put some tape from just below my lower lash line to the end of my eyebrows.  I’d already stuck to the back of my hand a few times.  I used Naked 2 above my crease, this will […]

November Beauty Empties

Time for beauty empties!  It’s a mix between skin care, makeup, body care and perfume! Let’s start with skin care.  From Lacura I’m getting rid of the Daily Gel Cleanser and the Mattifying Moisturiser.  Neither of these worked for me, I have two other products from the line which work better, you can read the […]

Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24hr Foundation Review

Lancome Foundation I was lucky enough to get a sample of this foundation from a boots counter.  I was matched to the shade 005 Beige Ivoire, their lightest shade (bet you’re surprised right?).   This foundation comes in 18 shades and retails for £28.50 from boots (other retailers available, that’s just where I got my […]
