Review: Illamasqua Hydra Veil Primer

I recently had a meeting with Helen Roche (Professional Development Manager and Pro Artist from Illamasqua) and she was showing/talking me through the full range of Illamasqua products (it was like the perfect working day for me!). In this meeting I discovered their Hydra Veil Primer and I knew just from the look of it…… Continue reading Review: Illamasqua Hydra Veil Primer

My evening skincare routine

I recently uploaded a video to my YouTube channel about my evening skincare routine, sharing with you the products I use, how I use them, what I think of them and also the skin concerns I’m currently experiencing, why and how I’m treating them.

My top 5 beauty products that have me coming back, every time

Trying new products is always a game of swings and roundabouts: potentially you could stumble upon your new love or, potentially, you could be wasting your money on something you’ll hate.  The beauty industry has always been both my work and my love; so nothing beats the ‘need’ to purchase new products (come on, it…… Continue reading My top 5 beauty products that have me coming back, every time

Review: Caudalie Vinosource SOS Thirst Quenching Serum

If you follow my blog and/or my YouTube channel, you’ll know that I’m often harping on about the saga that is my dehydrated skin (and my constant mission to rehydrate it).  Dehydration is such a frustrating thing, because it’s a skin condition and not a skin type (a post giving more on these coming soon!), which means…… Continue reading Review: Caudalie Vinosource SOS Thirst Quenching Serum
