My Holy Grail Blush

29 March 2015

I'm sure you're intrigued, because who the heck has a holy grail blush!? Well I'm pleased to announce that I do, and I cannot wait to tell you all about it. By Terry, just by the name it sounds luxurious, and why wouldn't it be, it was created by French royalty after all. From the scent of roses in every product, to the creation of the famous YSL Touche Eclat (Yep, Terry created the Touche Eclat!), Terry Gunzburg is a genius.While many associate By Terry as a brand for mature women, as someone who prefers their makeup to look minimal and fresh this brand is absolutely perfect. The By Terry Cheek to Cheek in Cherry Cruise is a liquid blush tint which gives you the perfect rosy flush to the cheeks, and while it does need some getting used to, once you get the hang of the application, you will fall in love.

Simple Micellar Cleansing Water & #SimpleActs Campaign

21 March 2015

You gotta hand it to the French, they know their beauty products as well as they know their way around a baguette, which I'm craving right now so I had to throw that in there. Unless you've been hibernating (or just loaded with university assignments such as myself) then you have most definitely heard of Simple Skincare. Y'know, the greatest makeup removing wipes in all of history? Yeah, that Simple. They're a UK brand who have recently released a brand spankin' new Micellar Cleansing Water*! Yes, you heard right, and stick around because I'm also going to tell you how this Micellar Cleansing Water is doing good for other people, and could potentially score you a weekend day spa retreat.

5 Minute Eye Makeup

10 March 2015

Raise your hands if you like to sleep in and end up running around like a headless chicken trying to get your face on in the mornings? I'm a very punctual person (I mean, get to my destination 30 minutes before I need to, I know, it's ridiculous) but even I sometimes turn off my alarm only to find out I overslept for about an hour. This is where the 5 minute eye makeup comes in. This is my whack-on eye shadow for when I want to look presentable and not as if I was in a complete frenzy, because c'mon ladies, we can do anything, even if it is applying makeup in 10 seconds tops.

Zoeva Classic Eye Brush Kit

3 March 2015

 Makeup brushes are the most important tool of the trade. You can have an $80 foundation, but if you don't have the right applicator to apply it with, then it won't live up to it's full potential. I've tried a lot of brushes, from Sigma to Real Techniques, so when these Zoeva brushes landed on my doorstep, they had a lot to live up to. And boy, they sure did. I ordered the classic eye brush kit from Beautybay after hearing rave reviews about them on blogs and forums, and I can tell you with full confidence, that these definitely live up to the hype! Oh, and not to mention Lisa Eldridge used one of the Zoeva brushes in her latest video so I knew I made the right choice.
