Coco and Eve Hair Mask

I am all for any product that makes my hair look and feel luxurious and glossy. So when the Coco and Eve hair mask kept popping up on Facebook, I gave in and decided to make a purchase. 

For £34.90, I was expecting incredible results and I have to say, I wasn't left disappointed.

The Lash Lift Procedure


Yesterday, I decided to go and get my eyelashes lifted. It's something that I have considered before but never took the leap to get it done. That was until my friend Natalie was looking for people to practice on as part of her beauty course. 

I honestly have been amazed by the results. I have quite long natural lashes, but to get them to lift and look amazing always ends up with me battling with an eyelash curler and layers of mascara. After 45 minutes on Natalie's beauty table, my lashes look revitalised and longer than ever.

Makeup Revolution Fast Base Foundation Stick


When a product has been hyped up so much, I cannot help myself, I just have to try it. Makeup Revolution only went and dropped a full coverage foundation, so the one question on everyone's mind is - how does it compare to their conceal and define concealer?

So how does it compare? Well, it's pretty amazing actually. If you're looking for an affordable, full coverage foundation then this is the one for you. 


It's super easy to apply, feels smooth on the skin and works well with the conceal and define concealer. It lasted around 5 hours before my t-zone started to get a little oily. However, the coverage is actually incredible. I wanted to test it properly, so decided to use the foundation to cover up my tattoo. 


The one negative thing I did find is that it accentuated my pores which weren't great. But I believe that with the right primer, that could be fixed. 


Overall, I really like it. I would definitely recommend this foundation. I don't believe that this isn't the best foundation for someone with oily skin. If you did want to try it, I would suggest using a good baking powder. 

I hope this helps! You can watch my review here

#PressforProgress

First of all, what does #PressforProgress even mean? Well, for International Women’s Day, a theme is created that we can collectively get involved in.

Since the Hollywood scandals erupted in the media, gender parity has been more exposed than ever before. Whilst it’s common knowledge that gender equality won’t happen overnight, the movement to push forward and progress for the equal rights of women is more prominent than ever before.

Women around the globe are marching together. We are unified for one cause. 
That cause being – US.

International Women’s Day isn’t a day just for feminists. It’s a day for advocacy and support. It’s the one-day where we can really share the successes of women, no matter what age or race etc.

For me, #PressforProgress means knowing where I stand and fighting for where I want to be. As a career driven woman, it’s important for me to strive to be the best I possibly can be, to lead a life I can be proud of and to confidently be heard and know that my opinion is respected.

It’s also about being involved in a movement that’s much bigger than myself, bigger than any person, organisation or country. Bringing people together – not just women, everyone together, collectively to make progress in an initiative that’s been holding women back since the dawn of time.

The more voices heard. The closer we are to succeeding. It would be great to see in my lifetime, a better more equal society for women.

Remember, empowered women, empower other women! Let’s #PressforProgress together.

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter

I'm all for a natural glow. If I can find a product that helps me achieve that look - I'm loving it forever.
When I think about Charlotte Tilbury, I automatically think high-quality beauty products. There has only ever been 2 or 3 products within her collection that haven't been right for me. So, when I discovered the Hollywood Flawless Filter, I knew it was either going to be a big hit or a major flop. Fortunately, it's a winner for me. 

According to the Charlotte Tilbury website, Hollywood Flawless Filter is a revolutionary complexion booster. It's essentially a primer with the glow of a highlighter. Allowing you to create the perfect radiant look. 


I personally love any makeup product that enhances my natural look without having to wear foundation. Which is why I decided to purchase this product. 


First impressions

The Hollywood Flawless Filter cost me £30 with a £2.95 shipping fee. It took around 8 days to arrive - I think it would have come earlier if the weather was better. 

The packaging as always is stunning. Charlotte Tilbury doesn't skimp out on the quality. Everything is sleek and very Hollywood glam, down to the envelope that contains your receipt.
