  1. A simple & natural Mineral Makeup routine

    Sometimes we wake up and we just can’t be bothered to do a full face of glam makeup. Other times we sleep through our alarms and have 10 minutes to do your makeup! In today's blog I am going to be telling you how you can achieve a beautiful natural look that is quick and simple.

    Step 1 is to, wash, moisturise and prime your face. As soon as you wake up in the morning it is extremely important for you to wash your face before you apply makeup. Washing your face will give you a clean fresh base for a smooth and easier application. After washing and drying your face apply a layer of moisturiser and let it absorb into your skin. This will hydrate your skin and stop your makeup drying throughout the day. The last step for this part is applying a layer of primer, this will make foundation application a lot easier and will keep your makeup in place all day.

    Primer, is it really an essential part of your makeup routine? Does it really make a difference? Yes! Primer is up there at the top with essential makeup products that you need in your kit. In this blog I will be sharing benefits of wearing primer with you!

    A primers job is to create the perfect base for your makeup application. However, there is more than one primer on the market, there are specific primers for specific skin types. Before you go shopping for a new primer it’s really important that you understand your own skin. For example you may have larger pores, this is where a silicone based primer will help you, the silicone helps fill the pores for a smooth even application and stops bacteria being pushed into your pores making them look even larger!

  8. Can I Wear Mineral Makeup Everyday?

    If you have a busy schedule and always find yourself on the go you may think, should I be putting makeup on everyday? There are many rumors that wearing makeup everyday will cause acne and damage your skin but that’s not the case.

    Wearing makeup everyday will not be the reason for breakouts and blocked pores! If you apply layers of makeup to your face everyday and then neglect your cleansing routine, you will see ache appearing and black clogged pores. I can not stress enough how important it is to take your time with your cleansing routine! A simple makeup wipe will not remove all your your makeup, you need to double cleanse to make sure that your face is clean.

  9. Tips for dry skin

    Wearing makeup and having dry skin is a challenge, especially now that the cold weather has arrived. If you aren’t sure if you have dry skin, the things to look out for are; flaky patches, tightness, fine lines and red/sore patches of skin. Dry skin can be difficult to manage but with my simple tips I hope to improve your skin!

    A great way to start is to use a cleansing scrub to exfoliate the skin. This will remove dead skin from the surface and leave you with a smooth base for better makeup application. Don’t exfoliate more than 3 times a week as this can damage your skin! Invest in a good moisturiser, regularly moisturising everyday your skin will be hydrated! Makeup products will dry out your skin throughout the day however with a layer of moisturiser under your makeup your face will stay fresh and hydrated all day. Alongside a moisturiser for smoother skin apply a layer of primer to make your makeup stay put.

    An important tip is not to aggravate your skin. Over ble

  10. How to apply Mineral Eyeliner

    Mineral eyeliner is different from other eyeliners because it comes in a loose powder form. How do I apply loose powder eyeliner? The application of applying mineral eyeliner will take a little longer because you will be using smaller strokes. After a bit of practice and following my guide you will be an expert in no time!

    The first thing to remember is to take your time! Because you are working with powder you won’t be able to just quickly apply it to your lash line. The best brush to use is a flat angled brush to achieve sleek neat lines, before you start you will need to dampen your brush. The damp brush will help the mineral powder to adhere to your brush for an easier application!

    Dip your brush into the product and tap off any excess to stop fallout lying under your eye and on top of your cheeks. It’s best to start in the corner of your eye and work your way out, using small strokes apply the product to your lash line. Work the product out towards the outer cor
