I’m a sucker for a bargain, especially when it comes to makeup. Of course I love my high end products, but my drugstore buys remain to be my favourite to shop for, as you can really get a lot for your money. The products I’d like to talk about today are things I use on at least a weekly basis, if not daily. There are a selection of face, eye, and lip products in my favourites which shows that you can really get a full makeup look using budget buys, that can look just as good as a high end look.

Today I’d like to discuss my favourite nude lip colours – pretty much the only lip colour I wear. I just find them so wearable as they go with everything, so I have many that I love. Plus, I usually forget to stick a mirror in my bag and they don’t require as much precision in terms of application as a brighter shade.

On Monday, I nipped into town before work to pick up my £1 Meal Deal from Boots, thanks to O2, and also thought I should restock on my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Transparent. Naturally, this lead to a few more purchases and a cheeky trip to Superdrug too, so I thought it’d be nice to write a post detailing what I bought. Yes, a little drugstore haul ensued!

I love makeup, and I love travelling. So today, I’d like to talk about what I take in my travel makeup bag. I do a lot of travelling to and from university, and to my boyfriend’s out of term time, so I usually have a weekend makeup bag to carry about. It changes season to season, but this is wedding season, and this is what I took on the last weekend of July when I headed to my boyfriend’s aunt’s wedding. As this travel bag was for a wedding, I took more choices that usual. Normally I wouldn’t take a full eyeshadow palette or liquid liner, but I needed to get glammed up. I usually take a second blush or bronzer with me, but I didn’t this time. This is because I’d worked out the look I was going to wear for the wedding prior to getting on the train up to Lancashire, and knew I could use these to make a more subtle, every day look for the other days I’m there.

I’ve been wearing perfume since an early age, and for that, I blame my mother. I’ve been wearing it for probably close to 12 years. I can’t be certain exactly when I started but I was definitely still in primary school. Of course I wore body spray in the early days such as ‘Impulse’, ‘Charlie’ and ‘So…’, but I also got into perfume quite early in life. Because of this, I feel totally naked if I’m not wearing a spritz or two of fragrance. Just a quick disclaimer before I start – I can’t describe smells for the life of me. This isn’t a review of the perfumes I used to wear or wear now, this is simply a list of the perfumes I have worn through the last decade and a bit, and how it has changed.
