Five must have products for a tenner or under

Categories: Products

Someone asked me at a make-up lesson recently what my favourite budget product was. In my make-up kit, I've a whole range of products and brands and I'll always try find a high street version of a premium brand. Not always easy but I do try! However, here's 5 products that are all £10.00 or under that I wholly recommend you get for your kit.

MAC and me

Categories: Products

"Do you use MAC make-up?"

It’s a question I get asked a lot as to what make-up brands I keep in my kit. When a potential client enquires, I go through a few names (the big brands and the smaller ones) but there’s noticeably one missing which would often be in other make-up artists’ kits. As I then say that I don't use their products, before I've had chance to explain I feel it sometimes goes against me as I then have to justify why I don’t.

Favourite make-up brush

Categories: Products

Man, I have so many brushes. I bought a few single ones when I started getting into makeup then my lovely friends bought me a whole roll of make up brushes and I didn’t know what many of them did; so many new and exciting things, I was gob smacked! I now have two brush 'kits' (my personal one and my professional one), and I’ve changed many around when I’ve found better quality ones. That said, I don't spend loads on my brushes; there's a few specialist brushes that I've splurged on and some have been fabulous, some have been atrocious but it's one of my mid-range brushes that's my favourite make-up brush.

Summer Skincare

Categories: Skincare

I apply SPF to my face each day; so much so that I probably remember to do it more than I do brush my hair! SPF is important every day of the year, but especially in the summer and it’s best to incorporate it into your daily skincare routine. Do you know what else is good about SPF? It'll help prevent aging and skin cancer. Wearing SPF is is probably the most important thing that you can do for your skin; even in the dark and cold winter, cloudy/rainy days, you should put sunscreen on EVERY SINGLE DAY. Your skin rejuvinates completely every 25 to 35 days but the damage is permanent.

Make-up Shelf Life - pt 2

Categories: Make-up Lessons, Products

After my little rant a few weeks ago about mascara shelf life, I figured I'd do a little guide on the shelf life of other products that are likely to be in your make-up bag.

Make-up Shelf Life - pt 1

Categories: Make-up Lessons

There's a bazillion (yes, that's a word!) of articles for the shelf life of make-up but I don't think people really realise why it's so important.

I asked someone recently at a make-up lesson, if they had mayonnaise in the fridge that was 6 months out of date but there was still loads left in the jar, would they eat it? Answer: Hell no, and dry retch.

So damn it, why are people still using mascara on their EYES that's out of date?!

Dry lips

Categories: Skincare

Vaseline is one of those things ingrained in us that it's moisturising and good for dry lips. In reality it doesn't moisturise dry lips at all; it causes a barrier over your lips and gives a sense of false hydration :/ Even on their site they say that it's absorbed into the skin but in another question says that it provides a protective barrier; which is it?!

No Vaseline
