Ever since I was a little girl, I have been interested in all things beauty as I used to watch my mum do her makeup and hair all the time and then I would try and use her products! I now love finding the best beauty buys out there and then recommending them to my friends and family to find out there experience with using them. To me the beauty industry has no limits, you can use different products or even just one product to create a variety of looks and through using different tools it can be made into an experience tailored to you. For me, perfecting my base is my fave thing to do and play around with, as I like it to last me all day whilst still looking flawless! So a handful of high quality products that I can rely on to achieve my natural yet airbrushed effect daily look is an essential as it gives me the confidence to be bold. As I am always trying and testing out new foundations, concealers, powders, primers and setting sprays I feel like I have a handle on the best makeup products out there. I am an advocate in using products that make you feel FANTASTIC as well as LOOKING FANTASTIC! I am currently loving the NARS Afterglow Lip Balm in the shade 'Orgasm' as it adds the perfect sheen of colour onto my lips whilst also moisturising them!
