I recently rounded up a little collection of my 12 beauty products for hot weather in this post, so I thought today I'd follow things up with a few more favourites and a tutorial! I specifically wanted to focus on a 'dewy but heatproof' makeup - the perfect balance that can be a tough one to achieve. This is a look you can wear on a very hot summers day, especially in the city or for work, so let's get started.

After what seems like an eon, pursuing the perfect under eye mask, I've finally found something that I'm thoroughly impressed by.

I'm really excited to bring you today's review of the brand new Sun Blind Cushion SPF 50 PA+++ from Etude House. I've really been liking their innovative cushion ideas lately, such as the Real Powder cushion for oilier skins (review + try on here), and the AC cushion for acne control. The latest in their string of innovations, the Sun Blind cushion, was formulated to top up your SPF throughout the day - specifically on top of makeup, and without getting it onto your fingers. So let's take a closer look!


MY CLEANSING ROUTINE + 5 BEST CLEANSERS.

15 comments


Even though they probably spend the least amount of time on your skin, cleansers are one of the keystone elements of any skincare routine. I'm really quite fussy with mine, and have tried a lot over the months and years. Today I'm going to be talking about the five (plus my secret trick that kicks all of these cleansers up a notch, or 3) that I keep coming back to.

Did you ever think it possible to condense your morning skincare routine into just one product? I'm generally not a believer in skincare-multitaskers (jack of all trades and that), but if you share my skepticism, let me tell you about this K-beauty hit...

This is a seriously, pretty little cake.

NYX is finally available in many local Boots stores and seeing as it's been a good three months since my last haul, I thought I'd swing past and pick up a few new items to try - so let's see what I snagged.

I'm really enjoying Estee Lauder makeup at the moment. Their Bronze Goddess Summer 2016 collection (review & swatches here) is probably my favourite of all from this year and a little spoiler alert, their new Double Wear Nude foundation is lovely. I'm still supposed to be on my spending ban but I had a good play so read on for swatches and my first impressions.


12 BEAUTY PRODUCTS FOR HOT WEATHER.

Now that we're officially into summer, who else is excited for some sun? A little basking, some pool-side frivolity? Whatever you're up to, there's nothing worse than worrying about whether your makeup is going to stay put, so today I'm going to be sharing some of my current favourite products that are perfect for warmer weather and can stand the heat.


15 SECOND FACE MASK??
BLITHE PATTING SPLASH MASK

The 15 second face mask experience.

I know, I've got to be kidding right? How is anything going to do anything in 15 seconds? You'll see from Part 1 of my Korean Skincare & Makeup Haul that I was lucky enough to try the Blithe Citrus & Honey Splash Mask, courtesy of the girls at Glow Recipe, and I promised you an update with my thoughts - so here's the run down.

ARTIS OVAL BRUSHES - £20 DUPE SET?

5 comments


They're unusual, they're different, they're raved about, and they're pricey. The Artis Oval brushes - you've all seen them, but would you want to drop two hundred and eighty four pounds on them?! Not I. Whilst you'll see me happily spend what might be considered over-the-top money on a gorgeous cheek palette, I am just not the girl to splurge on makeup brushes. So when I got a chance to try a dupe set of 10 oval brushes that is an amazing 14 times cheaper, I wanted to take on the investigation and share with you the good, the not so good, and most importantly, are they worth it?


KOREAN SKINCARE & MAKEUP HAUL #2
한국 미인들 하울

korean-skincare-makeup-haul

If you had a peek at the first installment of my Korean Skincare & Makeup Haul, you'll know that I eluded to a part two and today, here we are. There's a little to appease everyone, including a couple of saucy dupes for high end favourites.

And should we care to take a minute to 'appreciate' my impressive and somewhat overzealous strewing of flora in today's photographs, there are many, more desirable suggestions to jazz up your photography in my 12 Easy & Affordable Blog Prop Ideas post. A quick nod also, as it's relevant, to probably the world's first nanodiamond serum(?!) - I was lucky enough to try this Korean breakthrough, and you can have a good sift through the waffle of my first impressions here.


BOBBI BROWN SUNSET PINK SUMMER 2016
FIRST IMPRESSIONS + SWATCHES

5 comments


Just a quick post today to give you a little snapshot of this beautiful new collection by Bobbi Brown - which you can pick up here at John Lewis. After my recent indulgences (eg this Korean Skincare & Makeup Haul, the new Kevyn Aucoin ombre palette, Chanel Summer 2016, Estee Lauder Summer 2016, Elizabeth Arden Summer 2016?! It's terrible isn't it?!) I'm supposed to be on a bit of a self-imposed spending ban... but I couldn't help myself but to swatch everything for you - so let's see what's in the collection!
