My Glowing Summer Makeup Routine


Summer is here at last! I used to be really scared of doing a glowing makeup look during the warmer months, but now I love the look of highlighted, dewy (but not greasy!) skin. This is a pretty easy makeup look and you can always strip it back to the basics for those low-key beach days.


The Sunday Catch-Up & Current Lifestyle Favourites #5



Over the past few weeks since we last caught up, a lot has happened both in my life and in this country, it really is crazy to look back at how things have changed. Whilst I thought I should acknowledge all of that, I still want to share my life snippets in my usual positive way today.

What I Got for My Birthday


Today I'm sharing some stuff I got for my birthday! I also have a few bits I bought when I went shopping on the day and some things I picked up with the many birthday discount codes I was emailed by my favourite websites... I would've posted this sooner but I already had content planned and I thought it would be more useful for me to do this once I've had a chance to use the beauty products so you can have my first impressions. 


The Double Cleanse


Double cleansing seems to have taken the beauty world by storm! At first, I must admit I was slightly bemused; surely cleansing your skin after removing makeup is a no-brainer? However that would be losing sight of the fact that a lot of people have a much simpler routine than myself (as a blogger), plus I do think there's an art to picking the products that perfectly compliment each other. I tend to use something oil based, massaged into my skin to lift up even the most stubborn black eye makeup. I then remove it with a damp muslin cloth and use a skin cleanser to wash away any lingering impurities from the day. These are the pairings that work for me...


Summer-Proof Evening Makeup


I honestly LOVE summer makeup; for me, there's nothing more gorgeous than a warm-toned golden makeup look with plenty of highlighter. This is the kind of look I like to do for the evening and of course I've ensured it's all super heat-proof and long-wearing, as the weather has finally started hotting up... You can even adapt this into a  festival look, which is what I did for Love Saves the Day last month, basically: just add glitter! I also have a few different options so you can tailor this look to what you want whilst still keeping the overall vibe.
