Hit, Miss or Maybe : Concealers

As someone who has quite dark circles, I am incredibly hard and picky on the concealers I use. My concealer needs to not only cover my dark circles, but they must be comfortable, long wearing and above all they must not settle in my fine lines! Often with a concealer you can get a feel […]

The Balm Meet Matt(e) Trimony Palette

3 of my favourite words when it comes to eyeshadow has to be matte and warm naturals. Throw those words together in the one palette and it will come as no surprise that since receiving the Meet Matt(e) Trimony palette to try out a number of weeks ago, it literally has not left my eyes!!! […]

Stocking Filler gift guide

Every year when I ask my sister what does she want for Christmas, she always says “Little Bits. These are probably two of the worst words I can hear, because it means endless hours of trawling through the shops and websites looking for “little bits” to surprise her with on Christmas morning. This year I’ve […]
