This year is passing by at lightning speed. I can’t believe Summer is nearly over and that we already slowly moving into Autumn. Unfortunately it’s getting more and more difficult to deny, as temperatures are cooling down and the days are growing shorter by the minute.

So in this month’s Beauty post I thought we could sit down and chat about Concealers. I’ve been blessed with pretty flawless skin and will happily forgo foundation. But if there is one thing I would definitely take to a remote islands with me, it’s concealer. I sport dark circles under my eyes day and night. Just can’t get rid of the buggers, no matter what I do or how perky and awake I feel. Concealer is my weapon of choice and  I’m known to wear a variety of concealers simultaneously. In fact concealer is probably one of my favourite beauty items and the first thing I will replace when I have run out.

Let’s have a look at the concealers that I have used over the last few months.

A Little Addition to my summer wardrobe Review Sunglasses from Glassesshop

I hope you’re all enjoying the summer and that those of you who are away on your summer vacations are having lots of fun in the sun. Personally, I can’t wait to travel to Japan. Only a month to go now! In the meantime I’m enjoying the little amount of sun we’re currently getting in the UK. Yes it’s been quite a disappointing summer round these parts, more overcast hot clammy tropical summer than tanning in the sun. But the sun has reared it’s beautiful head once in a while and combined with our little weekend trips around the UK, that means that I have finally had a chance to wear my new sunglasses.

I find it quite difficult acquire the perfect pair, not unlike shopping for a new pair of jeans. Often they just won’t fit my facial features. Some girls own a vast array of sunglasses, changing them everyday like you would your shoes or jewellery. Not me.

The fact that staring at a PC all day has destroyed my eyesight and that I now wear prescription glasses doesn’t help much either. To be honest I’m generally reluctant to splurge on a new pair of prescription sunglasses and just stick to the ones I have.

So when Glassesshop.com offered me a pair of prescription sunglasses to review, I jumped at their offer. After all what did I have to lose?

Beating the Winter Blues products for brittle hair and sensitive skin

Spring is coming! Slowly the days are getting longer and this week we have had unusually good weather. Word on the street is that this weekend will be a sunny one. And yet the days haven’t become much milder, it is still very cold out there.

I have inherited the bad fortune of very dry skin and as long as temperatures remain arctic, my skin will remain dry and fragile, my hair will be brittle and my lips have a tendency to split. Here are just a few of the products that have helped me beat the blues this Winter.

Today I will be writing about makeup brushes you must add your makeup collection. I will be showing you the brushes that are part of my own makeup brush collection, we will discuss how I use them and clean them.

This is sort of a follow-on Post to My January Make-Up Routine. Since where would we be makeup-wise without our trusty brushes.

I must say for a long time I was too stingy to invest in these. But I finally stuck my neck out and what a world of difference they have made.

Makeup brushes are now some of my favourite beauty items to buy. Although I’m not a makeup artist, I still like testing out new methods of makeup application.

Having good quality brushes, not only allows your makeup application to be hundred times better they also make it so much easier.  Here is a list of my current favorite makeup brushes that I can’t live without.
