Save or Splurge: Spot Treatments ( Frugal Feb )

We’ve all been there, you wake up one morning with a line chart and self-diagnose yourself with severe acne. The panic sets in, you’re picking at it with anything you can. You’re triple-masking to try to fix things. You’re layering on the treatments and serums and lotions. We have all been there. I’m not going…

Lips For Less… ( Frugal Feb )

The drugstore/high-street have been all about the lips for years now. Lip products are definitely an area where they’ve excelled, there have been amazing affordable lip products on the market for as long as I can remember. However, I do think they deserve some extra recognition for the past couple of years. They’ve stayed on…

My Top 5 Affordable Base Products ( Frugal Feb)

In my personal opinion, bases is one of the areas where the drugstore/high-street excels most. For years and years now they’ve provided countless foundations and concealers and I genuinely prefer a lot of them to my higher end products. One area that has perhaps been lacking is definitely primers, but they’ve been catching on to…

The Mask Edit (Frugal Feb)

Throughout the drugstore/high-street’s entire growth over the past years, something’s been lacking. There’s been a niche that every brand had failed to fill- and apparently they all came to that realization in 2016. Over the past year we’ve all witnessed a dramatic increase in affordable skincare brands releasing many varieties of masks. From sheet masks…

Brand Spotlight: Botanics- The Power of Plants (Frugal Feb!)

With such a vast range of drugstore/high-street options on the market comes an even wider range of unknown brands that aren’t given a fraction of attention. We all have the same kind of mentality that if we’re going to opt for an affordable brand, it’s going to be a well-known one. The discrimination is real,…

My Holy Grail Foundation of All Time (Introducing Frugal Feb)…

Let’s kick things off by addressing the elephant in the brackets; this post is about to kick off a new series of mine called Frugal Feb. Unlike most of my series this isn’t a recurring one I write about whenever I feel inspired- no. For the next week and the remainder of February, I will…

Beauty Haul- Sephora, ASOS…

It happened. I bought a bunch of stuff I didn’t need, and I’m here to talk about it. I actually haven’t had a beauty haul in a while. I feel like I’ve been mostly working through my stash lately, but this month I decided to finally get a bunch of stuff I’ve been practically stalking…

The Truth Behind A Flatlay: Everyday Makeup Routine

I’m a huge fan of flat lays. If you’ve seen my instagram¬†you’ll know this, I tend to post daily flat lays of the makeup I use. But the truth is there’s a lot of pressure on Instagram. Depending on the aesthetic you’re going for, there are silent rules. Accounts I tend to love are usually…

A Little Lush Love Affair…

The big day is finally here. Love is in the air, and whether you choose to spend today with your significant other or a loved on; the odds are you’re surrounded by something pink or red. I’m definitely not one to argue that Valentine’s shouldn’t be considered a special day or a holiday; I love…

Love At First Light…

Every once in a while comes along a revolutionary product that claims to be a miracle in a bottle; with time, we’ve grown skeptical. With every new release I find myself questioning the claims and comparing and contrasting to past products with similar promises; now if only I were skeptical enough to stop buying every…

Trends To Try: Lip Masks…

It’s become impossible for me to scroll down my Instagram’s explore without coming across a makeup tutorial video. It’s become even more impossible to find any that don’t include the same beginning step of applying a lip-shaped gel mask onto their lips. The more and more I’d see it, the more curious I became. I’m…

Trippin’ With Tarte: Brand Spotlight

With a makeup collection growing day by day, it gets harder and harder to stick to the same products everyday. Brands release new products at such a crazy rate that my bank account can hardly keep up. So many different brands with so many amazing releases that I think we can all agree that our…
