Taking the Right Beauty Products with you on Holiday

When you are on holiday, you are going to have limited amounts of space for those everyday essentials. It’s important that you prioritise when it comes to your makeup – choose the products that will work best during your trip. Here are some ideas about the best kinds of makeup to take with you: Tinted moisturiser. Foundation will be the wrong colour within a few days once your face has tanned. Choose a light tinted moisturiser that will look less streaky and less obvious. Even if you wear no other makeup, blusher is the perfect way to give your skin a beautiful healthy glow. Making...

Foundations that last

Buying a foundation is a nightmare for me, I not only struggle to find the right colour but also to find one that lasts. Many foundations claim to last up to 8 hours (up to being the important word) as often I find mine have almost gone within a few hours.

The cost of cheap acrylic nails

So after trying different brands and comparing cheap basic ranges to ‘professional’ polishes I came to the conclusion that the main thing that contributes to a good even long lasting polish is a good...

Millions of women use foundation every day all over the world. There are thousands of products of there by different make up manufacturers all claiming to be the best, so how do you chose? Some people say that wearing foundation every day is bad for your skin but this really depends on what you use and if you clean it off properly. Same as with any make up, it can potentially block up pores which can lead to spots developing but this can be avoided if you remove the make up properly before you go to bed. There are some really light foundations out there...
