3 killer Halloween beauty looks

Looking for some Halloween inspo? Always. Here are some of this year’s most popular looks and how you can achieve them, even if you’re not a trained makeup artist (because who is?).

1. Pop art

Take your inspiration from pop artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein to create this not-so-scary Halloween look. The great thing about this look is that you can use products that you probably already own, and even if you don’t, they won’t be too expensive to buy. You’ll need

How I prep for a blog photo shoot

Blog photography is one of those things that look effortless and gorgeous when they’re done right and is something that I’m always striving to improve. I’m not the biggest fan of my own photography a lot of the time and I’m not great at teaching myself new skills. So I think it’s just something I need to put the effort in to improve myself. If anyone has any tips posts on photography for the Olympus Pen ELP7, please hook me up in the comments!

6 beauty products I’m loving rn

I rarely purchase new makeup these days because I’m trying to use up everything I’ve already got but I have picked up some new bits over the past couple of weeks that I’m really enjoying so I wanted to share some of these gems with y’all.

We ran into some lovely Benefit samples at work and I went home with the Benefit GoGo Tint and the Benefit They’re Real Duo Shadow Blender which was a lovely surprise. Let’s start with the eyeshadow. The weird little applicator is impossible to use so let’s just forget about that. It’s tiny and you can not keep hold of it unless you have a pincer grip. But, the product itself, being the eyeshadow is a beautiful rich taupe-y brown shade and I’ve been using it almost everyday because it’s lovely and matte. The shimmery shade is also a great highlight colour and the formula of both is buttery and smooth and really long lasting.

What is microdermabrasion and does it work?

Microdermabrasion sounds so scary. Like sandpapering your face, right? Well, that’s what I thought until I was invited to try the Crystal Clear Microdermabrasion treatment at Alexsa Beauty in Mansfield.

What is it?
This facial is a ‘resuracing treatment’ that gets to work on problem skin, pigmentation, lines, wrinkles and acne scarring. Basically, it’s meant to leave your skin rejuvenated, soft and refreshed!

Why breakouts can be a good thing.

Eesh. I know. 99% of the time breakouts are the devil. They’re the one thing that you do NOT want to happen. But, recently, I’ve come to a little realisation that sometimes they can be a good thing. Breakouts are basically a clear out of all the junk under your skin which is gross, but it can leave you with the glowiest of glowing skin when everything’s cleared up.
