Cleansing Time!

When I went to Graduate Fashion Week at the beginning of June I picked up a goodie bag when I bought a couple of copies of Company magazine. It came with quite a lot of good stuff and this was probably my favourite product in the bag. I have been thinking a lot about trying to keep my skin clear for the summer and recently I seem to have a bit of a breakout. My skin is generally okay apart from sometimes around my mouth and eyebrows where I have a tendency to get spots that don't want to surface but just sit under the skin, make it taught and hurt. 

I was excited to try this as I haven't ever used a cleansing oil before!

Golden Girl

Recently I have been wearing a lot of golden eye makeup - I thought I would show you two looks that I have done this week. It's definitely my go-to colour at the moment for when I am going out in the evening or going somewhere special in the daytime.

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer and Balmi!

If you've read any of my previous blog posts where I have listed what products I have on my face you will know that I have been wearing Collection 2000 concealer. It's been my 'go-to' concealer for ages now and I was planning on repurchasing again. However, I went into Boots in the Westfield shopping centre in Stratford and I couldn't find the stand for it anywhere! As far as my friend and I could tell there was no stand for Collection (as I think it is now called) anywhere in the store. Now please correct me if i'm wrong and you've been there but I couldn't see it. I shall stop rambling now and tell you about what I bought instead.

Printed Trousers OOTD

Yesterday I had been at work, all day. I hate being inside all day when it's so sunny and lovely and warm and you just want to be outside getting a tan and soaking up the rays. When I got home I did the first makeup and hair trial for my friend's wedding and that seemed to go well, she said she liked it and I just hope she really did. I need to work a bit on the eyeliner, that's always the most tricky part of doing someone elses eyes - getting the end (the flick) perfect is hard as everyone likes slightly different shapes and peoples eye shapes differ so much. I would love to show photos - and I do have some, but I don't want anyone seeing anything that is actually very close to the look that she'll wear on the day as that'll spoil the surprise!! Guess you'll just have to wait until the end of December!

Summers Day OOTD - Going to London

On Saturday last weekend I went to see Shakespeare, well, I went to see one of the plays that he wrote anyway. It's one of my favourites, A Midsummer Nights Dream, although I wasn't expecting much. It was a free play for charity in Russell Square Gardens and you never expect much when things are free, right?
