Tried & Tested: W3LL PEOPLE Expressionist Mascara

Years ago I was majorly hung up on a Maybelline lash defining mascara. During my love affair, it was discontinued and I would have to track it down on eBay until it finally ran out. The key element of this product was it’s crafty little plastic brush. You see, it wasn’t a big, full barrel brush like all the others. It was a tiny little comb with firm bristles. What made this brush so good was that it got right up into all those little tiny lashes, coating each individual one is colour while separating and defining.For the first time […]


Tried & Tested: La Mav Organic BB Cream

What on earth did I wear before BB creams? Probably the second greatest invention, after mascara, of the century. Back when I was at school I tried the minimal makeup thing and used a tinted moisturiser (spoiler alert, they’re rubbish). Obviously, a little tint in a moisturiser was not going to cover my teenage acne so I ended up doubling up my coverage with concealer, foundation, powders, camouflage cream… you get the idea! When BB creams first hit the market I assumed they were just tinted moisturisers, re-branded, and was pretty hesitant to give them a try. But, as you […]

The 5 Make-Up Brushes You Actually Need

Sure, getting your fingers working is quick and easy, but using brushes will help take your makeup application from amateur to professional. It’ll make application and blending so much easier and look way more flawless. But where do you start? 1. A foundation brush to really buff the product in and blend it together seamlessly. Here’s a tip I learned from watching a Kylie Jenner tutorial: don’t use the brush like a paint brush, i.e. brush strokes, instead use it to dab/buff out the foundation. Regardless of what you think of her, the girl knows makeup. I tried this method and […]
