How do you feel about New Year’s Resolutions? Every year, January 1st comes around and I feel like I’m bombarded with social media messages urging me to make a New Year’s Resolution and if I don’t, undoubtedly I will feel guilty about it. So, like many others I usually attempt to make some mediocre ‘diet’ or ‘weight-loss’ related resolutions. Ultimately, I then fail to adhere…

Man Ray For Nars Holiday 2017 Collection, NARS, Man Ray

First off I’m soooo sorry for being MIA recently. The last few months of pregnancy and the early arrival of Baby Ellie on November 28th (stay tuned for the cutest newborn pics) has been a bit ‘challenging’ should we say? More on that soon…Today though, let’s talk about makeup. I’ve been dying to review all of the amazing collections that I have a backlog of….

NARS Loaded Eyeshadow Palette and Other Faves

NARS Loaded eyeshadow palette

I always love when I get inspired to create a new eyeshadow regime. It doesn’t happen often. Typically I stick to my tried and tested neutrals (i.e. Urban Decay Naked Palette). Enter my new obsession – NARS Loaded Eyeshadow Palette. I’m talking 12 new velvety shadows that have rich pigments and give high payoff.  The NARS Loaded eyeshadow palette is a full spectrum of neutral-meets-opulent shades. Perfection guys! NARS…

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve loved browsing makeup counters. When inspecting beauty products one of the things that always stands out to me – is the packaging. Regardless of whether I’m checking out a new drug store find, or browsing luxury items in a department store, one thing is for certain, I love interesting packaging. Maybe it’s the ex-market researcher in me, but…

Go Naked with NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint

I’m always on the lookout for that perfect beauty product that helps me achieve a flawless ‘naked look’ appearing like I’m not wearing any makeup, but in reality, of course I’m wearing makeup – who goes out without makeup? When am I after such a flawless, au naturale look? Usually on the weekend, when I’m running errands and don’t feel like doing my whole makeup…
