Natural (ish) makeup tutorial!

Hi my lovelies!

Natural and nude makeup looks are bang on trend at the moment, so I’ve decided that this post is going to a a tutorial of sorts for that sought after no-makeup makeup look!

STEP 1: Base

First I used my Clinique superprimer with redness correction to prime my face, and then applied foundation. In this case it was Clinique beyond perfecting 2-in-1 foundation and concealer. I then used the same product to conceal under my eyes.

Snow White inspired makeup tutorial! Red lipstick forever!

Hi my lovelies!

So I know it’s the middle of February and we’re nearing the end of winter, but I thought I’d share with you a wintery Snow White inspired make up look today!

So we all know that Snow White is fair (me), but honestly anyone can pull off this look, it’s really simple and pared back, and doesn’t actually involve many products to achieve it! If there’s one thing I’ve found out, Snow White’s makeup is supposed to look like the no makeup-makeup look, but with a fab pop of ruby red lips! (Please take no notice of my hair on these photos, I had not styled it yet and just clipped it up to show off the makeup!)

Mani of the week: Ice-Cream inspired pastel Nails!

Hey everyone!

This post is a little late this week, partly because I loved last week’s nails so much that I kept the polish on for a little longer! The other reason is that I was way too excited about my first Look Incredible beauty box, so I wrote that post first! You can check out my thoughts on that one HERE for the blog post and HERE for the video!

I’m looking forward to spring, so this week’s nails were pastel and ice-cream inspired! I used a mix of mint green, lilac and cornflower blue polishes, and the end effect is really lovely!

Gorgeous glittery Ciate mani of the week!

Hi everyone, as you know, I’m a fanatic about great beauty products!

So I thought I’d share this week’s mani with all of you!

What I used:
1) Rimmel nail nurse base/top coat – I used this as a Base coat first, to strengthen my nails and help the Polish stay for longer.
2) Ciate Paint pot in Pocket Money. This is a gorgeous nudey-tone with a hint of pink for a great ‘your nails but better’ colour!
3) Ciate paint pot in Tinsel Town. A beautiful sparkly glitter polish with silver, pink tones and a hint of pastel green. I used this polish on alternating nails for a luxe and more high end look.
4) Rimmel nail nurse again, as a top coat for my nails. It not only helps the glitter polish stay for much longer without flaking off, it stops the polish from chipping for absolutely ages and gives a gorgeous sheen!
