Supercharge your lashes to reach their full dimension!

beauty

Get the ultimate multi-dimensional lashes perfect for lift, in triple thicknesses with extreme volume and curl with Kiss Triple Push-Up lashes, £7.99. They are tapered to give you a super full yet fluttery look combining three styles into one lash set, with a super structured lash band too. The lashes are proving popular already – Cardi B wore them herself to the 2018 Mat Gala! Buy them in Superdrug stores nationwide or online at superdrug.com

I also took a trip to search out a new foundation. Souring the beauty counters of Debenhams and John Lewis to find a matte or semi-matte finish and a shade that doesn’t take fair skin to orange tinged levels as it really doesn’t look good on most let alone a ginger! I finally found a really helpful counter assistant who took her time to really match my skin, and introduced me to Yves Saint Laurent All Hours Liquid Foundation, £35. The coverage is seamless and can be built up depending on your preferred coverage. I really love the fact that I can wear this lighter as well as full coverage – taking my look from day-to-night without changing product. (Plus you don’t need a primer either!)

Buy yours online or in-store at John Lewis and online at LookFantastic.com

Get the glow with Beauty Kitchens Seahorse Plankton range!

beauty

Looking after my skin has been the biggest thing on my radar over the last year, making sure I keep it well moisturised and eradicating the use of soaps that dry and most alcohol based skin products that also just dry my skin!

Whilst shooting a campaign for work this year there was whisperings between the crew, from MUA, models and even the photographer (its nice to hear of a guy also looking after his skin!) about their go-to magical oil… a seahorse plankton oil so of course I had to try this out!

Searching through Holland and Barrett, I find the huge range of Beauty Kitchenproducts and eventually found the Seahorse Plankton range…

Luckily for me I guess, I found the Beauty Kitchen Seahorse Plankton Skincare treasures collection, meaning I got to try the entire collection rather than just one item! It contains.

• Everlasting Radiance Cleansing Gel 30ml

• Everlasting Radiance Moisturiser 30ml

• High Definition Facial Oil 15ml

• 5 Minute Miracle Mask 30ml

plus…1% of sales of this range are donated to the conservation efforts carried out by the Seahorse Trust.

Ingredients include Frankincense and Lavender giving the range a subtle scent to help you relax whilst prepping your skin!

All of this was cheaper that I thought and meant that I could try the entire range instead of just the oil, as the bigger bottle of just the oil costs £19.99 alone. Overall, I’m in love with the oil, I put it on day and night, as a base under my make-up some days too! The cleanser is a wash off one, but between that and the 5 minute mask it leaves you with a fresh glow, and I can definitely say i’m always going to use this collection!
