Love Smokey Eyes? Now There's Smokey Lips!

I am an avid fan of smokey eyes. I love the sultry blended look of a good smokey eye and the classic and deep look that it brings. Even when I go for the more neutral or 'barely-there' shades on my lids, I still revert back to a deeper crease colour to carry off the smokey look. What can I say? It's my favourite style to wear.

My Top Three Neo Noir Picks by Kiko Milano

Earlier this year I was introduced to Kiko Milano for the first time, and it was the start of a beautiful friendship. As in: we're friends and they now regularly help me to beautify myself! Trying their products for the first time was something I put off for too long, and since using their Trend Collection, I've been happily indulging in other bits and pieces of theirs along the way. Most recently, and excitingly the Limited Edition, Neo Noir collection.

Totally Cute Right? My Thoughts On The Latest Too Faced Palette

I tried to think of a fancy intro for this post, something that expresses how much I adore Too Faced products, particularly their eyeshadow palettes. But I was coming up trumps, because you all know how much I swear by their shadows - I rave about them on social media all the time. Their palettes are some of my all time favourites and I'm first in line when there's a cute new set available. Too Faced manage to make everything about their brand fun, quirky, cute and extremely girly. Which I guess is why I own, or have tried, almost every Too Faced product there is. No lie.

Getting Thicker Hair With Bumble & Bumble Thickening Collection

Earlier this year I made the decision to go for the chop. I cut off my long hair in favour of a short and classy bob. A decision I have made before, as it's a style that I love. I love my hair when it's short, and I kept religious appointments with my hairdresser every 5-6 weeks to keep the style looking fresh and well maintained. However I seem to have fallen into the next stage of my style craving, and I'm now ready to grow my hair back. (I do this every time - short/long/short/long etc.) Bring me back the long locks!

Ecotools 2016 Holiday Collection

It's that time of year...the holiday sets, the Christmas exclusives, the one-off's we wait all year for...they're finally starting to hit the shelves. As a beauty blogger this is very exciting stuff, but as a beauty addict, well, I'm literally spending more time than I care to admit prowling through websites and catalogues, and admiring the seasonal pickings on offer.

Getting The Perfect Face Base With Urban Decay

When it comes to make-up, how you start your routine is key. Your foundation is the foundation for all your other make-up, after all. And what's more, the way you prime your skin plays an important part in not just looking after it, but making sure that all your other make-up does it's best possible job.

Doing Magic, With Charlotte Tilbury's Magic Cream

When it comes to beauty brands, there's a few I class as 'elite'. So well regarded are they, so high performing are their products, that make-up artists and stars rave about their results. So top level that they take things one step further, every time. There's only a few I class as elite, but one of them is Charlotte Tilbury.

When Perfumes Do Candles - Thierry Mugler Alien Candle

Sometimes in life, you know that you've found something magical. Something that's going to change your life as you know it. Something that's taken your love and adoration, and gone one step further. Something that takes you to a happy place and then you know you're never going to return the same...

Makeup Obsession - Create Your Dream Palette

Once in a while, a beauty launch happens and I get very excited. I get all giddy, clapping my hands and running to the nearest Boots to get my mitts on it. Thus was the scene when I heard about Makeup Obsession, and every beauty lovers dream: their collection of products that allows you to make your own custom eyeshadow, contour and face palettes. (Yes, you read that right!)

Estee Lauder New Revitalizing Supreme + Collection

Skincare gets more essential with age. Don't misunderstand me, it's important all of the time, but it's more important as you get older. Those two-nights-in-a-row partying start to take their toll, and not only do we take longer to bounce back from things, but so does our skin. As I'm edging closer to thirty, I'm noticing my skin shows signs of stress, illness and generally doesn't take much to look a little worse-for-wear. Gone are the days of eating junk food, nights out and doing nothing for my skin but remove make-up with a wet-wipe. Nope, nowadays I actually need to invest in good skincare to keep my skin looking it's best.

Showstopping Scents - Thierry Mugler Angel Muse Perfume

If ever I'm asked what my all time favourite perfume is, my answer will forever be the same. My trademark scent, the smell my friends and family always associate with me, and the one bottle of perfume that is always found on my dressing table... Thierry Mugler Alien. Because of this, I'm always one to recommend the Mugler perfumes. They're strong, sultry and musky, and they tick every box for me when it comes to a scent. So when I was given the opportunity to try the brand new Angel Muse, I absolutely jumped at the chance.
