Beauty Masks 101

Face masks, in particular sheet masks, seems to have taken centre stage in the beauty world at the moment. Brands are constantly releasing their own versions be it drugstore or high end so there's a ton of options for everyone despite your budget or your skin concern. I've got my hands on a couple of masks recently, which all seem to fall in the affordable price category, so I thought I would put together a post to introduce you to these new discoveries.

Natural Beauty Picks

Happy Tuesday! Hope you've all had an amazing bank holiday weekend.. whether you celebrated Easter or not, I hope your time was spent relaxing, eating and most importantly spending time with loved ones (mine certainly was). Today's post is all about natural beauty brands that are also cruelty free and some even organic. It's definitely been a nice change in my beauty routine to introduce so many new products that are actually free of any nasties. It also made me more aware of the current products in my collection which maybe do have toxins and definitely made me appreciate these natural brands even more, as they perform just as well. So I thought I would share with you some of my favourite new natural beauty discoveries..

Anastasia Beverly Hills X Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit

Anastasia Beverly Hills X Nicole Guerriro Glow Kit

After lusting over the various beautiful Anastasia Glow Kits for many months, I finally bought my own palette when I saw the collaboration that the brand had organised with beauty guru Nicole Guerriero. I bought it directly from the new UK website within days of its release and I received it in no time at all without any issues, so I definitely recommend it. I watched a couple of videos and researched the palette before its release, so I knew that the highlight would be intense. To be honest if you're going to wear highlight at all, why would you stop at anything less. I'm really happy I made the choice to get this palette, it's a thing of beauty and I love every single shade within.

The Spring Beauty Edit

Now that the weather is finally warming up, the trees are blossoming and the days are brighter for longer (despite the fact that we lost an hour of sleep).. I'm really starting to feel like Spring has truly arrived. With a new attitude towards this change in season, I've been open to trying lots of new beauty goodies from brands that I know and love, as well as brands that I am completely new to. I've had a great experience with each brand and have been impressed by these new beauty products, so I thought I would tell you all about these new beauty additions..

The Budget Lip Kits

The Budget Lip Kits - Lottie London, Makeup Revolution & Barry M

Liquid lipsticks have been on trend for some time now, starting off with high end brands  such as ABH, Jeffree Star & Kylie Beauty, which truly made a statement in the beauty industry. It also encouraged a lot of other brands to start creating their own liquid lipstick options & recently it seems that drugstore brands have also jumped on the bandwagon. This is brilliant as it means that regardless of your budget, you will be able to experience liquid lipsticks for yourself. Today I am focusing on three affordable brands that can be found in your local Superdrug store, which are currently promoting budget lip kits. I've actually ever tried a lip kit before, so I was quite excited to check them all out.
