How to Hack the Nude (Lipstick)

I only really got into the nude lipstick fad in the last year, and can I just say? Total game-changer. I never really liked them on other people (mostly thinking of YouTubers who always point out their lipstick) because I didn’t think it really added anything to the look. I was the type of person that wore lipstick mostly as a statement, and used one or two pink colours for everyday wear. My favourite thing about nude lipsticks NOW is that it doesn’t make an obvious statement or add a ton to the look. Instead… it just ~works~ no matter what’s going on with the rest of my face. Lipstick seriously helps frame your face, and 9 times out of 10 I’m wearing really minimal, natural makeup intended to do just that – highlight my features and frame my face. Back in the old days, I used t just put on a lip balm that would be gone in a matter of minute. Now, I addd a nude lip and it raises the look up a few notches, giving the look a more professional and put together tone.
When it comes to nude lipsticks I have some MAJOR favs and some I use just to mix it up. I have different shades to go with different outfits and different ~vibes~. Here are my top five favourites, and what I like to wear them with.

Tips and Tricks for the Best Matte Lips

Matte lips have been in for awhile now, from Taylor Swift’s iconic red lip to the craze around ColourPop and Kylie’s Matte Lip Kits they’ve proven they’re here to stay. Before the days of lip kits and liquid matte lipstick, and before I had any kind of disposable income to spend on those products I had to develop my own more crafty ways to get a matte lip.

Best Cruelty Free Makeup Brands at Sephora

Now that I (FINALLY) have a local Sephora to shop at, I’m thinking more about showcasing brands that are A. super hyped, B. easily accessed (ahem Sephora),  and C. still cruelty free.
One of my biggest cruelty free turn offs is the wealth of CF beauty bloggers who only ever showcase verrrrry hippy/unknown brands. I get it. Someone has to do it, but to me it’s important that people who see CF as an afterthought can learn that there are brands that they already know and trust that are cruelty free. Those big brands, while they might already be doing well, are still just as, if not MORE worth talking about. …

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder Review

The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder is a product that’s fairly trendy, and quite expensive. I bought the individual compact in the shade “Luminous Light” from Sephora in June. I won’t lie, it was a complete impulse purchase. I’ve wanted it ever since I heard about it in one of Zoella’s makeup tutorials (I’m basic, I know). When I saw it in the store, it was too pretty and glowy to pass by, so here we are. Unfortunately, when a big name like that recommends it, you’re still not 100% sure about the product. So, here is my humble Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder Review.
