Random Beauty… Lash Volume!

I do love my mascara – it’s one of my daily staples. I’m pretty lazy with regards to other eye make-up, but I feel naked if I leave the house without a whizz of the mascara wand. I’m often really sleepy in the morning, so mascara makes my eyes look bigger and brighter and helps…

Living Nature… Mineral Powder Perfection

I love mineral foundation. Mostly because it’s a natural product, without a tonne of chemicals thrown in, but also because it gives a great coverage and a very fresh and natural look. For every day make-up, I prefer to look as though I’m not caked in the stuff! My only problem with mineral make-up is…

Lovely Vegan Lashes, Without Breaking the Bank!

It can be hard to find a really good quality, natural and organic vegan mascara for under £10 these days. I usually don’t mind – I’m very happy to pay more money for good ethics and a natural product, but I’m also equally delighted when I can get these products at the bargain price of…

Inika – Cruelty Free, Vegan & Flawless

As a brand, Inika are one of my favourites. They are totally organic, cruelty free and vegan, and everything in their range is made from the finest quality mineral pigments. No parabens, no talc, no nasties at all. Just pure mineral goodness. There’s nothing like a good sweep of finishing powder to set off whatever…

Keep Calm & Cleanse with A’kin

Random Beauty… Smooth, Calm & Hydrate your Combination Skin!

Even if you have oily or combination skin, it’s important to moisturise. Cleansing alone simply strips your natural oils away, so in response, your skin will pump out more sebum and oils in a bid to replace those lost, and you’ll be back to where you started! The secret is finding the right moisturiser for your…

Random Beauty… Mini Brushes are go!

As you are aware, I love EcoTools brushes – and I’ve written a previous post about one of the gorgeous sets. Just to recap on the main reasons I love this brand – they are eco-friendly and socially conscious, as well as being perfect for the job in hand! What more could a girl want?…

Random Make-Up… Alva Organic Foundation Powder

Having combination/oily skin, I’ve always found foundation a bit of a challenge. It’s often too powdery and clumps up in little patches on my skin, or it’s a creamy/greasy slide around as oils build up throughout the day. It’s also great to be able to take my make-up out with me, and not make a complete mess…
