After having a new fringe cut in post-lockdown, I crowd-sourced the ultimate fringe care tips from my pals on Instagram to keep it looking its best. Now it’s time to pass on the results of their collective wisdom to you.
After trying as many as I could possibly get my hands on, here are my recommendations for the best gradual tanners for pale skin… and one to avoid at all costs!
As a teen in the mid to late 90’s I plucked my lushious, dark brows down to commas and they never grew back. Can RapidBrow actually fix the damage I did?
As an oily-skinned gal, mattifying powder products have always been my best friends. Shine control primers, drying foundations, and moisture absorbing powders were all that I’d allow into my makeup bag. It took my entire makeup wearing career to refine the best products that would make my face into a completely arid, matte surface that […]
You’ll be well aware by now that I hate having to spend too much money on, well, anything really… but especially make up. A brand needs to blow me away to convince me to part with more than a tenner for a single item. After having been introduced to a wide range of their products […]
As recently as last year my skincare routine was absolutely wild, crammed with step after step of lotions and potions that I’d meticulously researched. I had everything covered, and had spent considerable time and energy on targeting my dehydrated skin, it’s fungal acne, and it’s wrinkles. It was indulgent. It took ages. I loved it. […]
I’m a relatively recent convert to the cult of Glossier [affiliate link]. The great Boy Brow phenomenon of 2015 ripped through cool girl circles but it completely passed me by. My severely over-plucked 90’s eyebrows ensured that the product wouldn’t work for me, a fact I am still incredibly sore about. However, two years later […]
As I briefly mentioned in my mammoth skincare post a few months ago, I’ve been preparing to introduce the queen of all skincare ingredients, tretinoin, into my routine for its proven anti-aging effects. As it’s prescription only, tretinoin is not easily available in the UK, and in some areas of the country it can also […]
I’m in a real foundation funk at the moment, stuck between craving the full coverage flawless look that Estée Lauder Double Wear [affiliate link] gave me in my 20’s, and the lighter cream goodness the (now discontinued) Dr. Jart BB Cream has been giving me in my 30’s. As a compromise I’ve been wearing Lancôme […]
Almost a year has passed since I wrote about my skin for She Might Be, and it’s been even longer since I specifically wrote about it here. Since I’ve been getting hugely into the research and science behind skincare, it’s probably about time I updated you with a mega post about what I’m currently using […]
I have something really cool to share with you today. I know I might say that quite often, but I’d like to think that I wouldn’t share anything here unless it was exciting, cool, or even both; and I think this qualifies. You see for years I’ve been on a Goldilocks-esque journey to find the […]
I always seem to be in a bit of a flap over something or other about my appearance. Lately, I’ve moved away from fretting about my teeth and been overly fixated on my forehead wrinkles: going back over old photographs to work out how long ago they started to appear, researching lotions and potions to […]
For years, I thought I knew unequivocally what my skin type was: extremely oily. I tried every trick in the book to mattify my skin and keep the oil under control, using product after product designed to completely strip my skin of all excess oil and tame the slick. But my skin was never happy, […]
For someone who loves winged eye liner SO MUCH, I couldn’t be worse at applying it. Getting my liner right can sometimes take just as long as the rest of my face combined. In recent years, as my hands have become a little more shaky and painful thanks to my chronic pain, my winged eye […]
As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, I have extremely high maintenance skin, and as much as I was incredibly excited to travel for my recent holiday I also worried about coming up against the liquid restrictions in place in order to fly. The amount of products that I have to use on a daily basis […]
I realised that my blog has been outfit heavy of late, so for today’s post I thought I’d keep it light with a quick little review of this sweet eye and cheek palette from Sleek MakeUp. I’m not quite sure how I feel about these combined palettes overall, I’ve always preferred it when different types of […]
I have been really looking forward to writing this post, but having said that I’ve been excited in general since this whole 90’s fashion revival started happening and I can imagine a lot of people around my age feel the same. A couple of years back, when I was still in a houseshare, I relished […]
As I race ever further into my 30’s I’m realising that it’s time to get to grips with my skin and upgrade my current ‘high street’ skincare routine to something that is perhaps more of an investment. I’m primarily looking at organic skincare just now, and this is where Ekia comes in. Ekia is a French […]
