After booking the venue my next priority was to find a makeup artist that I trusted with my wedding day makeup.

5 Things I Wish I Did When I Started Blogging

Blogging has managed to become a massive part of my life, not a day goes by when I don't work on it - whether I'm writing a post, replying to emails, taking photos or planning content.


5 Long Lasting, Full Coverage Foundations.

Some days just call for a long lasting, full coverage foundation.


Content Creators Who Inspire Me

I thought it was about time I did another post like this and shared the love for some of my favourite online content creators.


Four To Try

I flippin' love doing 4 To Try posts so I've decided to bring them back! I like the idea of being able to talk about more random products in my beauty routine that would probably get left behind without these posts...

A lovely product I've barely spoken about that definitely deserves a mention is the ByTerry Ombre Blackstart in Frozen Quartz. It's a pigmented stick eyeshadow that's the perfect balance between creamy and smooth. It leaves a soft, shimmering shadow behind that can be left rich in colour or blended for a more subtle finish. The shade Frozen Quartz is a soft sparkling pink, one of my favourites for spring. Also - how gorgeous and insta worthy is the packaging!?

Another gem that my eye makeup routine thanks me for is the Urban Decay Primer Potion, it's the only primer that keeps my eyeshadow in place! I recently had my wedding makeup trial, the MAC paint pot in soft ochre was used and that just wasn't enough for my oily eyelids! It made me realise how amazing the primer potion is at not only keeping eyeshadows in place but making them appear more vibrant.

My final makeup pick is the Iconic London Illuminator in Shine*. This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful highlighters I've ever used. I don't go mad with this like those Instagram videos you see, I just apply a small amount (by small I mean tiny) to the top of my cheek bones, a little on my nose and below the brow too, then blend it out with a damp beauty blender. Considering how pigmented this looks at first, once blended it leaves a beautiful, lit from within look. I can see myself getting a lot of use out of it in summer and on my honeymoon - eek!
A skincare product that's quickly become a holy grail in my routine is the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion. If you follow me on Instagram or twitter or watch my vlogs you'll know I was complaining about breakouts before Christmas, thank fully they have pretty much cleared and the drying lotion has been a massive help. I apply this in the evening to any blemishes that are raised and by the morning they have either gone completely or are on their way to healing. As you only apply this directly to the blemish the rest of your skin is clear, and I haven't experienced any dryness what so ever. If you suffer from breakouts then I highly recommend using this to clear them up fast.

So, they're four things I thought were worthy of a mention in this post...
