Bronzing, contouring and highlighting!

How To: Contouring, Bronzing and Highlighting

This is my method of bronzing, contouring and highlighting using a few of my favourite natural make-up products. This is especially handy for the fair-skinned girls! (Warning, scary images of my face coming up.....) Contouring & Highlighting This is something I do almost every day (not exactly like above haha). As I've tried to illustrate in the picture, it's a method of applying make-up to certain areas of the face to help create definition. It's a bit like painting, you need to add light and dark tones to create contrast, shadow and depth, to make the key features stand out. [...]
Lily Lolo Bondi Bronze & Waikiki

Lily Lolo Waikiki and Bondi Bronze

A permanent staple in my everyday make-up routine, I have become completely obsessed with Lily Lolo's bronzers since I bought them. They previously featured in my February favourites and look likely to stay in my favourites for a long time, I seriously cannot be without them. Affordable, beautiful pigmentation and just the right amount of shimmer: instant bronzed summer goddess in a pot! Application First off, I am more of a mineral powder girl and don't really like using cream make-up products very much since I use mineral powder foundation instead of liquid. These bronzers buff into the skin really [...]
Green People Talc Free Collection

Green People Talc-Free Make-Up

So the other week I wrote about how I was little impressed with Green People's Gold Shimmer Bronzer (despite it being quite pretty) due to the ingredients list including talc. I found this a bit naughty, considering their claims that their make-up products contain no harsh additives. In response Green People kindly sent me a few of their products from their new range (OK so I think these have been available for a little while so I'm a bit late to the game!) of talc-free make-up with new design packaging. Here are my first impressions... Pressed Powder I was sent [...]
Some February Favs!

February Favourites

First of all, yes this is a week late! Second, yay my first favourites post wooo! I've been trying out a few new bits in February that I actually bought back in 2014 but I tend to trial products for a couple of months to decide whether it's working for me, especially in terms of skincare products. Also in the mix I have a film I have really enjoyed and jewellery I have been obsessed with... 1. Opalite Earrings - these are my favourite favourite favourite earrings of all time multiplied by one thousand and fifty nine twenty. They're beautiful. They're sparkly. [...]
Green People Gold Shimmer Bronzer

Green People Gold Shimmer Bronzer

My latest, and only natural bronzer in my make-up collection! Until now I have been using only the Warmth loose powder from Bare Minerals to add a little colour to my pale complexion, since learning that my much loved Ecco Bella Flowercolour Blush in Nutmeg contains carmine (so annoying as it was so pretty). I also learned a couple of months back that bismuth oxychloride (CI 77163) is an irritant and synthetic compound which is, and most likely has been, contributing to my skin problems. I have since switched my loose mineral foundation powder to a bismuth oxychloride free brand, and now more [...]
