Beauty Worth Waiting For…

Posted · Add Comment

Two lovely beauty things that have caught my eye, and they both have waiting lists before they’ve even hit the shelves for the first time. How do you feel about waiting lists for special edition makeup items? Are you are complete makeup obsessive who simply has to have the latest eyeshadow shades or collectable compact? Or do [...]

Is it me, or does the last beauty favourites video only seem as though it went up about a week ago? I feel as though I’ve been sucked into some kind of space/time vortex! Oh well.

Ugh. I feel absolutely shocking. I have dragged myself out of bed to do a bit of essential admin, but my head feels as though there’s a cannon ball rolling about inside it and I’m sitting slumped over as though I’m suffering the world’s most epic hangover. If you don’t hear from me for a [...]

How to Cover Dark Circles

Supersonic Face Masks

Kicking off the new week with some brilliant, powerful face masks. These are the kind of masks that you can rely on to give your skin a proper overhaul in a very short amount of time; brightening, smoothing and plumping, brilliant for erasing signs of fatigue or over-indulgence. (Basically, what I am getting at here, [...]

Best Undereye Concealers for Dark Circles

Posted · 65 Comments

This has been a pet project of mine for the past few years; finding very high coverage concealers that will fade out dark circles without making them grey and ashy. I have tried – quite literally – hundreds, and though there are dozens of them that work well, I’ve narrowed it down to my top [...]
