Five of my favourite YouTubers

Watching beauty videos on YouTube has been my guilty pleasure for a couple of years now; there’s something very self-indulgent about spending time watching other people putting their makeup on, but I find it oddly relaxing. There are a whole tonne of YouTuber clichés – overuse of ‘obsessed’, the inability to find any adjectives other […]

A shimmering duo from Becca

I was possibly too excited when Becca released the Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Pearl as an individual shade – finally, the ghostly of face could be über-glowy too. I loved the look of Champagne Pop but it was just too dark for my skin tone, looking like a shimmery stripe, albeit a rather pretty […]

Five happy happenings #19

My bestie coming to stay in the Mouse House for the weekend. She lives in London and it’s been ages since we saw her so it was fabulous to catch up, drink lots of cava, and watch Harry Potter films. Discovering this cookie recipe (the whole book is also brilliant). These jeans. So comfy. Size down. The […]

Save, spend, splurge: clarifying masks

Like a lot of people I love whacking on a mask a couple of times a week, usually in the bath or whilst sprawled across the bed watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix. I have lots of them but most fall into one of two categories – clarifying or moisturising. The save, spend, splurge this time […]

Obviously most people need another nude eyeshadow palette like they need a poke in the eye but, just in case, this little dude, the Masterpiece Nude Palette in Cappuccino Nudes from Max Factor is rather nice. I actually bought this because I forgot to take my Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 with me for my […]

Still, it’s good to know what I actually want, rather than the things I pick up on a whim when I’m […]

Summer pink picks

This might be the most girly collection of products that I’ve ever put together and there is almost no chance that I would wear pink on my eyes, cheeks, and lips at the same time, but a hint of pink is so pretty, especially when the sun is out. Starting with the eyes, the shadow pans […]

Oliver Bonas sale picks

I really love Oliver Bonas but it’s one of those shops that skipped the North East and went straight from North Yorkshire to Edinburgh, so I don’t get to go in and browse as much as I’d like. They do have a great website though, and the sale is always brilliant. I thought I’d try […]

Three perfect cream highlighters for pale skin

Everyone and their cat seems to be loving highlighter at the moment, whether it makes you look subtly glowing or like a freshly glazed Krispy Kreme (other shiny doughnuts are available). I swing between wanting a delicate refined sheen and hankering after a gleam you could see in space. Rather surprisingly it’s when I want something more […]
