While on holiday in beautiful Corfu last month I created a couple of makeup looks using the products of one compact makeup bag. Check them out on this blog post.
Last month I had my birthday but didn't do any big celebration. That doesn't mean I didn't get to receive a few good presents :-). Some of these presents were make up and beauty products, of course!

Today marks my blog's anniversary. It's been 2 years already since I first embarked on this make-up learning and blogging journey!

It's been ten (yes, 10!) whole months since I last posted on my makeup blog. Swiftly moving on from the shame and embarrassment of that realisation I want to return to my promise in my last blog post and restart by writing about the No. 1 lesson I was taught from my makeup instructor: hygiene and sanitation.… Continue reading Back to makeup basics (and blogging)
