What's in my summer makeup bag

The makeup bag we carry to work/school/travel with is sacred. It’s the place where only true favourites land. It should be packed so it doesn’t take too much space in our bags yet carry everything we need to survive a day. If you fancy knowing how I justify what’s in my bag lately, please read on.

Rose infused skincare - is it just the hype?

Last year I was all about green tea and 2018 has been a year of rose so far. This is not the rose you’re thinking off. Gone are the days when rose scent reminded us all of grandma’s perfume. The modern rose scent is lighter, little fresher and very feminine. But we are not here to talk scent per se, as the rose is an incredible ingredient commonly used in skincare. Be that extracts, purified water or oil, a bit of rose in your cream or serum should be on your wish-list. Why? Let’s chat!

Red lipstick: my story

Do you remember your first time? The moment you picked up that forbidden baddass of shades? One thing’s for sure, your first red lipstick isn’t one that's easily forgotten. Over the years, I developed such affection for red, nothing quite compares. Red is bold, demanding and shields me from prying eyes. Yes, they see me, they see the confidence in rocking the most statement of shades. What they don’t see is the shyness, my lipstick tells the stories I can’t put into words. There’s been a time when I only wore red. Meetings all day? Red. Sunday in PJs? Red. Red is for life, red is me.

Glossy metallic lids with Phase Zero Metal Foils

The dream to achieve an almost glossy eye look that lasts has been almost impossible without looking like a hot rock chick mess within an hour or so. Let's face it, wearing gloss whatever its price won't make a difference. An eye gloss will crease and smudge. There are ways to cheat the system and easiest and most convenient options are foiled eyeshadows. The formula of a foil when applied correctly allows you to achieve the almost wet metallic look that will last the day or night. Today, I'd like to share with you the new affordable beauty launch from Phase Zero Makeup that will allow you to experiment with the biggest trend this summer at a fraction of the price and without the need of professional level makeup skills. Welcome to the world of Phase Zero Metal Foils*...

Revolution Pro: achieving poreless, full coverage dewy base for less

You know my love for Makeup Revolution, so when Revolution Pro launched, I was the first to drop some ££ on all the newness! I found many new faves including a brand new primer and a foundation! This might be the first time in forever I’ve not used fancy high-end foundation/primer duo and not noticed a difference. If you’re into medium-full coverage, glowing finish that doesn’t set in pores and rather not spend hundreds on your base, please read on.
