Becoming A Low Maintenance Makeup User


Now don’t think I don’t love make-up anymore because my make-up collection is still as large as ever however I have most definitely become a lot more low maintenance about how much make-up I am wearing on a day to day basis. I love a good smokey eye but possibly not on a Monday morning when i’m sitting in my pyjamas munching on some toast.

Ever since stopping wearing foundation on a day to day basis my skin is looking so much more radiant and I barely wear foundation unless its a special occasion or i’m having a bad face day. Mascara is still a must if i’m leaving the house to see people but now I will scurry round to the shops without anything on my peepers-baby steps people! Lips I have completely ditched anything red or berry toned and really only where nude colours. This I feel is just because of the season and I will be back wearing red lipstick as soon as winter rolls round.

Are you more low maintenance or high maintenance make-up girl?

July Favourites|2015


Illamasqua Shadow in Stealth|got2b Tame&Shining Styling Oil|Soap&Glory Feel Good Factor|BarryM Gelly Nail Paint in Cotton|Rimmel Lasting Finish Liner in Spice.

July is over what!? I don’t think I have really stopped this month i’ve been filming on location quite a lot which has been great fun but again early mornings have meant not too much make-up. However I have been loving the Illamasqua Eye Shadow in Stealth which is a gorgeous matte cream colour which really helps to brighten up your eyes especially if it’s layered over a cream base. I have also been in love with the Rimmel Lip Liner in Spice which is a 90’s brown/red nude and very flattering with my pale skin.

I’m still not over my white nail obsession and turned to BarryM for a new one and thought I would try out the Gelly Hi-Shine formula. The lasting power of this with a top coat is insane and it’s super opaque after just one coat! My hair has been very much abused recently and so i’ve been trying to look after it with some styling oil mainly to get rid of the dryness and to tame the flyways, got2b┬áStyling Oil is a really nice product which isn’t too greasy but still gets the job done and really smooths and provides shine to my hair. Lastly in July I was loving Soap&Glory Feel Good Factor which is a facial suncream with an SPF 25 which is amazing, it doesn’t leave your face feeling greasy and protects it from the sun.

What were you loving in the month of July?
