Strobing On A Budget

Strobing is everywhere right now.  Know it or not we've all been strobing (to some effect) all along!  Strobing is basically contouring without the dark contour shades.  It emphasises the high points of your face and creates illusion that way rather than using darker shades to create shadows.  I've watched numerous people 'strobe' (can you use it as a verb? I'm gonna do it...!) using different techniques, and to be honest it looks hell of a lot easier than contouring!  I can contour but nothing as extreme as you see on those instagram videos!  So for me strobing is actually brought about some relief...something low maintainence (compared to contouring) and that actually exudes youthfulness.

Why I Shop At World Duty Free

It’s coming up to three weeks that I've been back from my travels, but I haven't been able to think of much else.  It's safe to say, I may have caught the travelling bugI One of the things I enjoy about travelling, being the beauty junkie that I am, is shopping at World Duty Free. Who doesn't want to save some serious money on their beauty favourites?  I spend a good amount of time at Word Duty Free, much to my other half's dismay! I'm either stocking up on my favourite beauty products or picking up beauty exclusives only available at World Duty Free.

Superdrug Brand Swap Challenge

I’m a creature of habit when it comes to certain things.  For example, body products or skincare that I know works for me.  So I was interested to take part in the Superdrug Swap Shop Money Saving Challenge!

My Favourite Travel Essentials

Travelling is one of my favourite things to do in life.   I had some time off this summer from my hectic work-life to get away for a little longer than usual.  I took this opportunity and travelled through Italy and couple of other places.  Let me tell you, all the places I visited had 30+ degree weather so in the sweltering heat all I cared about was keeping cool and resembling a human being while doing it!  I've gathered a handful of my favourites that helped me in this process.

New Release | L'Oreal Paris Infallible Mega Gloss

If you read my post about my Spring lipstick picks, you'd know that I wasn't massively keen on the Bourjois Velvet Lipsticks.  I loved the idea of the products, but the formula was inconsistent depending on shades and they smelt horrendous!  The new L'Oreal Paris Infalliable Mega Gloss gave me a great alternative to the Bourjois lip products.
