I thought I would share my favourite highlighters with you just in time for the sunny days! These will definitely have you shimmering in the sun.
Number 5: MAC Global Glow Mineralize Skinfinish. Perfect subtle golden sheen for a natural healthy look.
Number 4: Illamasqua Pure Pigment, Furore. This is a playful super glittery highlighter. I sometimes use this when I do the ‘strobing’ technique to give just a little extra emphasis to certain parts of my face.
Number 3: Mary-Lou Manizer AKA ‘the luminizer’. The most extreme highlighter I have come across so far, for the ultimate cheekbone pop. Although I don’t use this daily, it is a must in your make up collection for those ultra glam days.
Number 2: Laura Geller, Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator, Gilded Honey. This product has been widely raved about on blogs, and its all for a very good reason- It’s phenomenal! Beautifully finely milled baked powder, so it doesn’t give the glittery look and more of a natural build-able glow.
My FAVOURITE, Number 1: Bare Minerals Eyecolor, Pure Gold. I recently discovered how beautiful this eyeshadow is as a highlighter when I went on holiday having left most of my makeup at home. With my limited products, I thought I would try this out as a highlighter- it worked wonders!!

I’m not sure why but coloured eyeliner seems to have an alternating trend of being cool then uncool after every couple of years. Anyway it’s totally in the cool phase right now!
In order to pull of this look, it is essential that you tone down your lips. Another great tip is to apply loads of black mascara to frame and open your eyes – this is especially important for smaller eye girls.
As for the rest of your face, I personally love teaming this look with an overly bronzed and highlighted face as it adds to the exotic feel.
I dare you to give this look a go! Tell me what you think 🙂
Inglot is my favourite gel eyeliner brand – it glides on soo smoothly!
Hello dearest readers!
Before we worry about our makeup and beauty, our first priority should be to look clean and well kept. One of the most noticeable parts of a woman is her hands – so let’s not ignore how they look!
Don’t underestimate the importance of a daily/weekly routine to keep your hands looking fresh and rejuvenated. Not only will this improve your daily appearance, regular maintenance can also prevent premature ageing. Ageing hands are one of the most difficult tell tell signs of a mature lady, so let’s do what we can to delay the process!
The same principles apply to your hands as with any other skin care routine you may have. First and foremost, we need to remove dead skin cells to reveal brighter & more radiant skin below. My absolute favourite hand scrub is the ’60 Second Manicure’ by The Beauty Kitchen. You will instantly see your hands glow like never before, its magic!
I then moisturise my hands with a thick greasy moisturiser or vaseline and heres the awkward part.. grab a pair of clean gloves/socks and leave them on overnight to get amazingly soft hands in the morning. Sounds bonkers but I promise you your hands will feel fantastic!!
For a finishing touch, ensure your cuticles are removed and your nails are painted with your fav shade!
Let me know if you guys have any tips with your hands.
