Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation

I've finally hit that point in the year where all of my foundations are too dark to suit my skin tone. So, I've been on a mission to find something to avoid dreaded 'tide-lines' and keep my skin looking flawless during winter.

Without doubt, the much-talked-about Rimmel Match Perfection foundation was the obvious choice and after swatching it in store, I took it home hoping that it would do exactly what it said on the bottle - 'completely conceal imperfections with no foundation line'. I'm a huge advocate for the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation, however the light reflective particles leave you at risk of looking like a glitter-ball Edward Cullen during the winter. However, this was certainly my favourite high-street foundation... up until now. Rimmel's Match Perfection is absolutely gorgeous...

Goodbye Tired Eyes: Garnier BB Eye Roll-On

I've been back at University for only a week and dark under-eye circles are already rudely appearing. So, today I wanted to share what I'm using at the moment in the endeavour to get rid of them and look wide awake!

In general, BB creams are something of a grey area for me. I love the idea of a half-coverage, half conditioning product, but with the few that I've tried, I've just never really jumped on the bandwagon. That said, when I spotted this a couple of weeks ago, I decided to make an exception.. What could be disappointing about an all in one eye cream and concealer? So, I've given it a real run for its money...

3 Steps To A Good Night's Sleep

The torture of insomnia. We've all been there and now, experts have even told us that sleep deprivation can decrease our life span. So, with that in mind, here are three, easy steps that you can easily factor into your evening before you hit the hay, in order to ensure you achieve the 7.5 to 8.5 hours sleep that is recommended.

Experts have also said now that it isn't the length of time that you sleep for, but the quality of your night's sleep which will leave you waking up refreshed. For this reason, it is really important to prepare yourself for a good nights sleep by banishing any anxieties and creating the calming atmosphere...

By Terry Terrybly Or Rose Highlighter

This ultimate luxe compact is something that I picked up in the sales a few weeks ago and from first glance, I completely fell in love with it. Say hello to By Terry's completely beautiful 24K Pink gold highlighter...

By Terry is at the top end of the spectrum when it comes to beauty, in terms of quality and, unfortunately price as well. I completely fell in love with the By Terry Terrybly Mascara, which, as a growth serum as well as a show stopping product in itself, has completely revolutionised the look of my lashes. This magical highlighter is no exception and with its scintillating mesh of 24-karat Pink Gold micro-particles, you almost feel like you're getting your moneys worth. This is a hugely luxurious product that creates stunning definition, however, I'm not completely convinced...

bareMinerals Mineral Veil

For over a year now, the ultimate finishing touch to my make up has been the bareMinerals Mineral Veil. I always use a setting powder and if not Rimmel's failproof Stay Matte, it's all about this wonderful product.

The powder is available in original, tinted, illuminating and even hydrating specialised formulas, all of which are going to really lock your make up in place, all day long. This powder absorbs excess oils in your skin, without drying it out, taking away the 'glow' or enlarging any fine lines or pores. If you're on the search for a longevity solution, then this flawless finalé cannot come any higher recommended...

Benefit The POREfessional Primer

Late last year, this gorgeous primer took the blogosphere by storm and now, has even been voted as the UK's favourite primer! After jumping on the bandwagon and giving this a run for it's money, it isn't hard to see why!

The POREfessional quickly becomes your best friend when it comes to evening out skin tone and is designed to instantly reduce the appearance of pores and fine lines, creating a beautifully smooth base to apply your make up. It's perfectly translucent and the formula is also completely oil-free, which is ideal for those of us who have more combination skin. It really is a primer that does everything you want it to do - it is suitable for all skin types and really does keep your make up put - all day long...
