I’m absolutely rubbish at dressing for summer; because most of my clothes are black. Or very dark. So this year I’ve been trying really hard to brighten up up my look for the summer months and it’s been making me feel super happy!! Here’s what I’ve bought (so far!)
Well I kind of forgot to do one for January, oops. I think it’s because I didn’t really have anything new to share with you, but I’m back with a bang with my monthly favourites for February!
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.
Even though there are quite a few posts out there regarding no-follow links, I still see loads of people posting on blogging forums asking what they are, how to use them, why you should use them and what happens if you don’t.
So I’m going to explain it in my own Holly style of writing and hope to hell I make some sort of sense! You might want to go and make a cuppa before I start…
This Sleek palette post has been sitting in my drafts for absolutely ages, mostly because I wanted to take some photos which would do absolute justice to it but I wasn’t happy with any of the photos I took; they just didn’t look right. Does anyone else ever have that problem?
It’s been ages since I’ve done a makeup of the day post. In fact I think it was back in July! Damn… Where’s the time gone?
I thought I’d do an autumny-feel makeup look at the weekend; all purple and gold tones!
Because I’m still pretty new to experimenting with makeup, I somehow seem to own pretty much every eyeliner type there is; I have gel, pencil, liquid and pen eyeliners. If you can name it, I’ve got it and tried it because I’m still searching for that one eyeliner I can use easily without getting frustrated because it’s coming out wrong.
Some I’ve loved and some I’ve really hated. Maybe one day I’ll do a post on the ones I really didn’t like and why.
I can definitely believe that August is nearly over. There’s now a chill in the air and the leaves are turning brown and falling from the trees. What I can’t believe is that I managed to do this while it was still August!
Now I’ve been blogging for a whole year (well a year tomorrow but I’m impatient), I thought I’d host a bit of a giveaway to say thank you for supporting me and reading my blog 🙂 ♥
So I’m a little bit beyond excited about being able to write this post. I’ve been trying to get my hands on the Solstice palette for ages but it’s been out of stock in all my local Boots and Superdrug stores every single time. Booo; not cool guys! And yeah, I know I could be a normal person and just buy the palette online, but I love going into a shop, getting to look at them all and choosing the one that doesn’t have grubby finger marks all over it. Plus there’s the added bonus of not having to pay any p&p and being able to take it home and try it out there and then!
