The BEFORE picture

Simple sparkly New Year's Eve tutorial for hooded eyes

Thankfully with the little product, I’m about to introduce - it’s easy and wow and it takes less than a minute to apply. It almost feels like Glitter Gods are finally listening to feedback! Without further ado let’s get ready together this New Year’s Eve!

Travel skincare must haves

Travelling is what makes life simply better. Sometimes something as little as an overnight stay in a new place can bring a new perspective. I love short city breaks and my favourite place to visit is hands down London. There's something so magical about it, with all the incredible architecture, great food, shopping and busy nightlife. Packing light is something I've only mastered recently and I've become pretty damn good at sorting through the NEED category. Good skin care is a must for me, especially in a new place as even a short travel has a very detrimental effect on my skin. So if you're planning a city break or you're off for work do somewhere and you're not too sure what to pack, here's my absolute minimum skincare regime set, that's too good not to try!

Red lips made easy

May be the biggest cliche but red lip Christmas looks will forever be a favourite of mine. Red lipstick adds a classic touch to any outfit. I’ve been known to pull it off in my PJs - classy AF! Joking aside, red lips suit everyone despite the bad rep this shade gets. If I only had a penny for each time I’ve heard ‘It doesn’t suit me’! I personally don’t believe in shades being unsuitable because of complexion/hair/whatever else. Wearing red takes confidence. So put that lipstick on, smile and walk out of the door feeling like you can take on anything. Because you can!

Last Minute Christmas

I plan and plan and usually, something happens and I end up buying everything at the very last minute. Anyone else? Don’t get me wrong, the thought process lasts forever as I hunt for perfect gifts but this year I took a step back and decided for an inspiration to hit me. Work’s been so busy I barely had any time to just sit down and breathe (thank god for my Breathe app on Apple Watch tho - I’m convinced it’s the only thing standing between me and heart attack!). A perfect gift can be found anywhere and doesn’t have to cost a small fortune either! I compiled a list of beauty goodies I’ll be gifting this Christmas. From Beauty Drama Queen to Dorota this Christmas. Fancy a read?

Beauty tricks to looking well rested.

Looking awake when you struggle with sleep is something I know all too well. Puffiness, dark circles and first signs of ageing can make anyone look tired all the time. For me, it’s a constant battle. Thankfully there is an answer to that. From skincare to makeup, there’s a way to look fresh and awake in the morning despite insomnia.

Morning skincare routine

Happy December everyone. I’m officially in a Christmas mode now. Winter is truly on its way with temperatures dropping to barely 1 degrees as of late. Cold, central heating and other environmental factors have a huge impact on our skin. It’s important to change up your routine to ensure skin’s protected, well nourished and hydrated. I introduced some new products to my morning routine to ensure I look fresh and awake to cheat my body a little. Lack of sunshine, dark mornings and short days usually make me more anxious and stress shows quickly doesn’t it?
