I have been having a bit of a makeup base revelation this year, I have found a couple of bases which are hard to beat; bareMinerals Original Foundation and Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation and it’s fair to say that Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturiser has very quickly become another firm, face base favourite. After just one use I was instantly impressed and I knew I was onto a winner when both my Mum and my Sister commented on how good my makeup looked!
For me one coat of mascara doesn’t cut it. I’ve always been big on lashes, applying coat after coat. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a fan of clumpy tarantula lashes, but who doesn’t want giraffe like lashes?! Getting past the animal references, I will start by saying that there are a lot of products and tips and tricks out there when it comes to lashes. But, in all honesty I don’t have the time, or patience, to dip a cotton bud into baby powder and apply it to my eyelashes after each coat (saying that, I wouldn’t even say that really works?!), or apply false lashes on a daily basis! Do you? Understandably our eyelashes are genetically programmed and we aren’t all blessed with killer lashes (blame Mum & Dad), but there are a few basic things you can do in order to create the illusion of having fuller & longer lashes, without baby powder, or falsies!
Is it okay to be just as excited about the shopping potential in the duty free, as you are excited for the holiday? Well, once the holiday was booked, I started dreaming of Gatwick North Terminal and filling my basket! So once me and Ben had checked in, it didn’t take me long to do exactly that! In all honesty, I didn’t spend as much as I thought I would and although I went with a few things in mind, I didn’t pick any of them up, I was so overwhelmed by the beautifully lit counters that I didn’t know what to do with myself! So here is what I got my hands on instead...
On Tuesday 23rd September, it was the 6th year of Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out and I was kindly invited along to Superdry’s flagship store on Regent Street, to celebrate their new A/W collection. After I received my invitation, I excitably took to Twitter to see who else was attending. After finding a handful of bloggers who had also been invited, I arranged to meet Penny (from Lillies And Love) at London Liverpool Street. I must admit I was a little nervous whilst making my way into London, as this was the first event I have attended, but Penny was lovely and made me feel totally at ease.
