Face of the Night (FOTN): Smoky Silver and Hot Pink Lips

Lately my morning beauty routine has consisted of rolling out of bed and applying minimal make-up, then with a quick brush of my hair I'm work ready. I think we all go through those stages where taking that extra time just isn't a priority, therefore a Saturday night out in Newcastle is a great excuse to indulge my inner beauty fiend.

£1 Serum? Derma V10 Derma Serum Review

I picked this up on a whim in Poundland a couple of months ago and after a quick glance at the ingredients on the back I saw nothing alarming so in it went into my already straining basket. My skin tends to be dry and dehydrated all year round so I'm always looking for those products which will give my skin some life back without costing me a fortune. Products for dry skin are always marketed as 'luxurious', 'rich' and containing high quality ingredients, therefore companies can charge a crazy amount for a tiny pot of 'wonder' cream.

Pre-Holiday Beauty Routine: Ibiza 2015

I'm back from my holiday in sunny Ibiza (sad face) but I thought I'd share my pre-holiday routine. I've written this post with the preparation I did for my Ibiza beach/pool holiday in mind, however this could easily apply to any kind of holiday/event.

Face of the Night (FOTN): Pink, Purple and Bronze featuring Make Up Revolution, Kiko and Mac


With all this warm weather and a slight tan still sticking around from my holiday, I used pink, purple and bronze tones to create this smoky, soft and illuminating look. The Make Up Revolution Redemption Palette Iconic 3 is a bargain at only £4, with shades similar to those in the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette that are perfect for summer. I also used my new Kiko Glamorous Eye Pencil that I picked up in Ibiza (haul and review to follow), as the plum shade is less harsh than black and blends well with the colours in the palette.
