I was introduced to the Laura Mercier foundation primer in my first beauty box a few months back! This was my first ever primer and I loved it from the start, so much so I had to repurchase it again, and then again after I finished my first full sized tube from the Latest in Beauty beauty box. See why the Laura Mercier foundation primer is my new favourite makeup step!
This is definitely a much more personal post than my usual but a topic I have a real opinion about. I write this after completing my second year, two thirds completed in about £30,000 so far. I had always wanted to go to Uni, but on reflection I’m not too sure if this was because I wanted too or because of the expectation of going to Uni from College is the expected. I remember being in my tutor group and those not going through UCAS were told not to bother coming in as what we’ll do is pointless to them, so you were blacklisted as a result. This pressure to continue studies was one definitely pushed on everyone and I believed if I didn’t go, I’d be a let down and an outcast.

Whilst H&M was having 20% off for students with the UNiDAYS app, I just couldn’t resist a mini haul! I wasn’t going to blog about what I got but I picked up a H&M nude eye shadow as I was looking at their make-up and something urged me to put it in my basket along with an eye shadow brush to accompany my new buy. The H&M nude eye shadow palette jumped out at me as a really nice nude set of soft shimmer colours, not too full on, but perfect for every day wear.

It doesn’t seem all that long ago when I was writing about my love for Yankee Candle Wax Melts and how the intense smell makes my flat smell good enough to eat but today I have news on a brand I have recently discovered and love just as much as my Yankee Candle collection that cost so much less – the Bomb Cosmetics wax melts! See my I’ve been loving them so much…
If you’ve not heard the wonders of contouring, where have you been? Kim Kardashian made us all lust over her chiselled cheeks and sharp jawline and her secrets have been revealed in the shape on the power of a great contour and I just had to try it all out. I was so stuck as to which to try, so many people had rated the Sleek, Smashbox, Seventeen, Barry M and Anastasia Sets but as I was undecided if it’d work for me I went with the Barry M contour kit with the intention to invest in a high end palette if it works wonders. Released on the 11th of Febraury in UK stores, this is a new product that people are really raving about and so I decided I’d share with you my experience and hope it helps you get the best contour possible.
