Best Makeup Look Videos

I take no shame in confessing that I love watching videos of people putting on their makeup. Especially when they know what they’re doing. I love watching the process, and an artist’s take on makeup always reminds of the ability for makeup to be expressive and creative. ‘5 Makeup Looks You Should Master’ – Pixiwoo…

Green Glittery Eyes

Green eye makeup, particularly in the form of metallics and glitter, were very prevalent on the catwalk this season. To me, it’s such a fun colour and brings me so much joy. I particularly liked the metallic green looks on the Versace models. I think that people often associate cruelty free makeup with ‘green’ brands….

Favourites #6

BEAUTY: VITAMIN C SKIN RENEW CLEANSING OIL, Una Brennan Long name aside, this is a nice affordable cleansing oil. I prefer this to the Body Shop one now because of the packaging alone. No leakiness. I use this to remove makeup, it loosens everything off. £10 for 200ml Mud Marvels Mask, Merumaya This is a…

CF at Naturisimo

Naturisimo is an online beauty retailer, mainly focused on ‘clean’ and green beauty. Most of the brands they sell are cruelty free. Brands that say they’re ‘green’ or whatever not to test, but there are always exceptions. For example, they sell Caudalie, and Burt’s Bees, who do test. These are the brands I like the…

Favourites #5

BEAUTY: Balance Me, Radiance Face Mask I use this almost as a cleanser in the morning and my skin loves it. It’s soft with tiny little granules sometimes occurring in the consistency – but nothing scrubby. I leave it on my face for two minutes while I brush my teeth and it just leaves the…

CF at Space NK

Space NK is the kind of place I aspire to be able to pop in and just buy some lipstick spontaneously. They are a luxury beauty retailer in the UK, and they sell quite a few niche, smaller brands as well as bigger ones. Essentially, as with any retailer, avoiding bigger brands is the best…

Favourites #4

Beauty: Melting Cleansing Balm, Merumaya Really effective and luxurious. This just doesn’t feel greasy at all. Don’t get me wrong sometimes I love a grease, but other times I just want something that I can remove easily. It has the classic Merumaya scent (it just smells like nice skincare). I can’t imagine anyone not liking…

Favourites #3

BEAUTY: Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme, Nip+Fab These are an old favourite of mine, they were the first acid toning pads I ever used and I still use them a lot. Wouldn’t call them extreme though, but if you’re a first time user of acid (lol) then you’ll see a really great difference in your…

Favourites #2

BEAUTY: Double Cleanse, Pixi + Caroline Hirons This is, of course, perfect for double cleanse as you get two products in one. This is great for travel, and I suspect I will purchase another in the summer months to accompany me. The balm removes everything, but isn’t heavy and doesn’t cause breakouts even on my…

Sleek Makeup

China loses out on Sleek, a makeup brand which refuses to sell to China until it changes it’s policies on animal testing. Sleek is widely available in the UK on the high street, I bought these items from Superdrug. They are well known for their impressive pigment and affordable price, here are the products I’ve…
