When I was really young, I was a proper little blond haired girl! As I grew up, it started getting darker and by about 7, I became a pretty non-descript “mousey brown”.
Over the years, my hair’s been black, red, blue, and pink. But in the last year or so, I’ve gone back to being blonde. And I have to say I’m absolutely loving it! I still have my brown roots though as I wanted more of a “natural” balayage look and it seems to suit my skin tone quite well!
If you couldn’t tell from the title and the photo above, it’s currently National Smile Month (which is running from 15 May – 15 June 2017). So to celebrate, I’ve been trying out a couple of products to help my smile look brighter and whiter and I wanted to share them, and the results, with you!
Well that sounds a bit scientific, doesn’t it? It’s not though I promise, and because Superdrug have done all the science for you, you just get to play Master (or Mistress) Perfumer to your heart’s content!
Do you remember in my last Smashbox post where I said there was a going to be an exciting new launch but it had been delayed? Well I can announce, if you haven’t seen it already, that it’s finally here!! Yup, Smashbox have now brought out a new range of their Be Legendary Lipsticks, but this time, it’s a metals collection. A couple of weeks ago, I went along with Aine and Ali to Boots in Brighton to have a play with the gorgeous new shades.
Since I’ve started on a different contraceptive (the injection) and new medication for my vertigo, my skin has absolutely gone to pot. It’s been left looking incredibly dull with gorgeous blotchy red bits and some lovely little patches of acne. Thanks skin, you da best! So I went searching for some products to help my skin look and feel better!
It’s not exactly news that my eyebrows are barely there and I have to fill them in with pencil. Mostly because I over-plucked them heavily in the 90s, but a little bit because I’ve realised that I actually inherited thin brows from my mum’s side of the family. Thanks genetics!!
It might be news though, that when I was born, I had absolutely no eyelashes at all. Not even one. Luckily for me they started growing a couple of weeks after I was born, and even more luckily, they’re pretty long. The only issue is as they’re really blonde at the tips, they don’t look as long as they ought to.
A couple of weeks ago, I was meant to attend an event to check out all the fab new SS17 products from GOSH Cosmetics, but unfortunately, I wasn’t able to go 🙁 What I didn’t realise was that they would send me out some of their new products so that I wouldn’t be missing out!! ♥ How lovely is that??
I love entering Twitter giveaways! Especially the recent Kylie Lip Kit one from the lovely Tamzin, because I only went and blimmin’ won, didn’t I? Don’t hate me, I seem to be really lucky when it comes to raffles and giveaways!
Despite getting “quite into” beauty in the last couple of years, and owning so many different creams, serums and lotions for my face and body, I was still pretty rubbish when it came to looking after my nails. I used to have acrylics for a few years but stopped when I couldn’t afford it anymore. Now I can afford it, I really don’t want to ruin my nails again as it took a good couple of years for them to regain their strength!
I hate buying foundation. Absolutely hate it. (Almost more than I hate buying jeans!) I either buy the wrong shade or tone or the wrong coverage and I’m left feeling frustrated.
A couple of months ago, I reached out to my Twitter followers to ask which foundation they’d recommend. Two foundations scored really highly; the Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer in One and the Rainforest of the Sea Foundation from Tarte.
