Time has finally come that I delve knee deep in cruelty free and, when possible, natural and organic skincare and makeup. I mean Rimmel and L’Oreal are fun all that, but they’re chock-full of cruelty and sad bunnies. I have also been pretty desperate to find out why the hell is my skin still breaking out after almost 10 years of consistent acne. Continue reading “What About Natural Skincare?”

Here it is, another makeup look! Quite colourful, summery and warm, but still appropriate for both day and night wear. With a darker lipstick, you could go to town with this and look oh so ravishing.

There are certain days in a girl’s life when even putting makeup on can seem like a chore. On days like this, kudos to you, if you can go in public without wearing the slightest bit of makeup… but, until my face gets better (probably when I’m in my thirties), 5 minutes to get my glam on is all I need.
