My Current Skincare Routine

24 February 2013

I've never posted a full skin care routine before, because the products which I use change quite a lot, but I think I'm finally happy with my routine, and I have to say my skin is looking a lot better than it used to. Everyone's skin is of course different, so what works for me won't necessarily work for you, but I always find it interesting to hear what other people enjoy using. For reference, my skin is acne prone, and quite sensitive. I suffer from hereditary red cheeks and dark circles under my eyes (but no bags as of yet), and my type is definitely combination. I have areas which are extremely dry, and a slightly oily t-zone.

Sorbet Nails

22 February 2013

In case you hadn't noticed the ever so slight theme of Spring being on its way, I've rounded up my three favourite polishes for the season. The colours are all fresh and simple, and each remind me of a nice scoop of sorbet (hence the slightly strange post title). A lovely, refreshing change to the deep burgundy's and teals of Autumn/Winter. As I'm a bit of a nail polish snob usually, I challenged myself to pick polishes priced under the £5 mark.

MAC Pink Cult

15 February 2013

Another bargain purchase from the Cosmetics Company outlet store at Cheshire Oaks, Pink Cult was released as part of the Reel Sexy collection last year. I'm a massive fusspot when it comes to blushes, being a cream girl all the way, but as soon as I swatched this it was love.

The Face Edit #1 - Nearly Naked

12 February 2013

Spring is on its way (or so I keep telling myself), so I've dragged myself away from berry shades, and moved towards a more fresh, natural look. Surprisingly, I've also switched from 100% high end to mostly drugstore. Here's a run down of the go to products in my makeup bag recently:

A Perfect Pout

10 February 2013

There's nothing I love more than a good ole' nude lip. Whilst planning a little rave on my most recent purchase (MAC's A Perfect Day), it dawned on me that it's now discontinued - it was released last year as part of the limited edition 'Naturally' collection which I somehow managed to miss - and so I'd better offer a still available alternative. Queue me digging around in my lipstick drawer and swatching almost every neutral shade I own...
