Bridal Beauty - Make-Up Essentials & Tips

Like many of us, I spent yesterday morning watching Prince Harry and Meghan (well, now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex) wed. I love weddings and watching all the excitement, seeing all the dresses. Meghan looked absolutely stunning. I'm not even in a relationship but I've already decided that I want a fanfare greeting when I arrive at my wedding. After watching it, it got me inspired to write up a post inspired by bridal beauty. If you are a bride, firstly I would recommend going to the Bobbi Brown website, as they have an entire section dedicated to bridal make-up. Now I am not a bride or a make-up artist, but I do have a passion for make-up and I follow these tips myself for fancy occasions.

A Quick & Simple Work Make-Up Look

Every so often, I create a new everyday make-up look. In the last few months, I have been experimenting with bolder eyes and shimmery textures. However I've started a new job, so I've been going for a slightly smarter eye look. Now I am not a professional make-up artist, but it does give me a day-time smokey eye feel. You might notice that this look features all higher-end brands and mostly MAC. However, you could definitely re-create this make-up look with drugstore brands as it doesn't feature any brand-specific colours. As I am white, this make-up look might not work on darker skin-tones but the main eyeshadow in this look could be used instead as a natural no-makeup look.

May Birchbox: Palm Leaves & Warm Breeze

Another month, another Birchbox post. I am always excited to find out what in my box every month, May especially as it is my birthday month. I am now 23. Feels a bit weird! This month's box has been inspired by the desire for warmer times, which for those of us in the UK, we are always looking for! So hopefully all the beautiful palm leaves on the box will keep the warm breeze with us. There are only two brands that I have not tried before in this box, Greenfrog Botanic and Native Unearthed. So let's have a peek inside!

Getting Your Body Summer Ready

Now wasn't that a gorgeous bank holiday weekend! If you don't live in the UK, we just had a gorgeous warm weekend, quite surprising for spring. It got me thinking that now it is getting warmer, we can all start getting our limbs out! I posted on my Instagram about two of my favourite moisturisers and getting ready for summer, but I thought it would be good to write up a post in more detail. I am quite picky about what body products I use, as I am not a fan of heavy-feeling products. I have also included a great product for giving your legs the look of being on holiday, all in one bottle.
