A MakeUp Look That’ll Make Your Skin Glow This Summer

My makeup never changes.

I’ve been loyal to the same brand products for a number of years now, but every now and then, I add a new addition into the mix in order to hopefully enable my makeup to look a little bit better than previous years.

Glamour On The Go With Givenchy

When you hear the word Givenchy, you automatically think of glamour.

I have wanted to get my hands on their Glamour On The Gold palette for quite a few months now after seeing it on the way home from our Amsterdam trip and so you could imagine my excitement when World Duty Free very kindly gifted me the palette.

The best thing is, they didn’t even know I had my eye on it. Sheer luck!

The Perfume Everyone Asks Me About

Perfumes are the one aspect of beauty that I hardly ever purchase.

In my eyes, they’ve always been something to add to my Christmas or birthday list because I never know what else to ask for.

I’ve only ever owned three perfumes: the purple one from Victoria Beckham which saw me through high school and college, Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream which I fell in love with in Brisbane Airport when I had a seven hour lay over as well as Daisy Eau So Fresh which I’m desperately running very, very low on.

When World Duty Free kindly gifted me a bottle of Girl Of Now by Elie Saab, I was intrigued as to whether I’d like it or not as I’m very fussy when it comes to perfume.

My First Impressions Of Pixi Glow Tonic

When it comes to skincare, I have always kept my routine simple and to a minimum of steps – cleanse, tone, moisturiser and a face mask twice a week.

But during Winter, I noticed that my skin was lacking a glow. It looked dull, almost lifeless (perhaps I should smile more) and no amount of highlighter was helping.

I have heard a great deal about the Pixi Glow Tonic from the blogging community – everyone speaking very highly of the product and so, I thought it was about time that I purchase a bottle and try it out for myself.

What’s New In My MakeUp Collection

My makeup collection has never been big.

I’ve always kept it quite minimal; constantly repurchasing my favourites and never really trying out any other brands. Even when I try to do my makeup a little bit different, it always ends up looking the exact same.

But when the Mr and I were in Prague at the end of March, I somehow accidentally fell into Sephora twice. When you’ve got a lot of foreign money left over before you fly home, it’d be rude not to treat yourself, right?

Travel Exclusives With World Duty Free

I think we can all agree that duty free is the best part about being in an airport.

It’s the only place where I can really justify spending that little bit extra on myself when it comes to makeup and perfume.

I am extremely honoured to be working in collaboration with the wonderful team at World Duty Free for this post and to showcase the fantastic beauty products in which they have kindly gifted to me.

The Face Masks Which Saved My Skin

I have always been lucky with my skin.

I’ve never had acne, I’ve never had a major breakout but I do get spots when I’ve eaten bad foods and I’ve also had the occasional allergic reaction rash.

It was Victoria who introduced me (and the rest of her viewers) to the L’Oreal Pure Clay face masks. I would have never turned to a makeup brand for skin care before and now, I rely heavily on them and their incredible products.

Discovering Smashbox and Bobbi Brown

It is very, very rare that I treat myself to any high end beauty products.

I have my holy grail Roller Lash mascara from Benefit and the Natural face palette from Charlotte Tilbury but that’s about it as I’m much more of a drugstore kinda girl.

But with that being said, I treated myself towards the end of 2018 as not only was it my birthday but it was also a “well done for surviving such a bad year” present.

A girl can treat herself, can’t she?

The One Scent For Spring

It was October when I last wrote a beauty post.

I haven’t been buying any makeup or any new skin care, so I hadn’t nothing to show and talk to you all about. I’m definitely not someone who purchases for the sake of the blog, that is for sure.

I did however receive a new bottle of Marc Jacobs perfume for my birthday and quite frankly, I need to blog about it because I have been spraying it like there’s no tomorrow.

Protecting My Skin Through The Colder Months

Skin care on a daily basis is very important to me.

Yet when we land ourselves in late September, I find myself wanting to take even more care of my skin because having a dry face isn’t on my to-do list.

For the past year or so, I’ve been trying to find face masks that really work for my skin and believe me, I’ve tried my fair share of them. I’ve tried the cucumber peels from Sephora as well as the Garnier face peels but neither of them seem to do much for my face.

That is where L’Oreal come into the mix because their skin care is amazing.
