February 2016 Beauty Favourites | Clarina

February has whizzed by, before you know it daffodils will be blooming. Spring does make me very happy though. I’m bored of waking up to dark mornings now. This month has been jam packed with excitement and hard work; the ultimate highlight being my first glug of Chardonnay after a whole 6 weeks dry (does that make me […]

Real Techniques Brush Collection

Real Techniques brushes *long sigh*, aren’t they stunning? My RT collections consists of thirteen brushes (unlucky for some). I’ve never actually counted, and that odd number is bugging me now. But these are probably my favourite brushes of all time. I feel I’ve tried and tested so many other brands and I just keep going back […]

W7 Pallettes | Review, Swatches & UD Dupes

My obsession with eyeshadows continues to grow, and as a result, so does my collection. It’s becoming a bad, scary habit but I just can’t get enough.

Dramatic Glam Makeup | Morphe 35o Palette

I promised I’d do a look using the Morphe 35o Palette (read my detailed review) after receiving a few requests. Can we talk about it? It’s the most beautiful palette and I’m yet to use it on camera. Outside of blogging and YouTube, I have not put it down. I’ve created so many looks with it […]

Valentines Day To Night Makeup Tutorial | Collab

Is it really approaching that time of the year already? I wanted to create a look for whatever your Valentines Day plans are, so I created something that can be worn during the day and then easily switched up to something more nighttime appropriate.

Morphe 35o Palette | Review, Swatches & Dupes

The Morphe 35o Color Nature Glow Eyeshadow Palette (whoa, what a mouthful) is very popular. It’s in such high demand, and as a result is sold out on their official website 90% of the time. It continues to be restocked (but in small quantities it seems), and I was lucky enough to get my hands on one. They’re limiting it to one palette for each […]

January 2016 Beauty Favourites | Clarina

January has been the dreaded month of pulling myself back into a routine since the Christmas shenanigans. It’s been a month of absolutely zero alcohol; a detox for the body and the mind.

MAC Purple Eyeshadows | Review

Just look at them – aren’t they beautiful. I’ve been reaching for purple shadows more and more recently, and these from MAC are my favourite. I feel like most people can be a little scared when it comes to not only wearing purple eyeshadows, but wearing them well. But, with these shadows it’s super easy. My […]

3 Minute Makeup Challenge / Boyfriend Does My Makeup

This is by far the funniest video I’ve made since plunging into the world of YouTube. After much persuasion, my boyfriend agreed to film the ‘3 minute makeup challenge’ together, making it a spin on the original ‘boyfriend does my makeup’ video trend. I supplied John with a handful of brushes and products and all […]

Splurge vs Steal | Battle of the Primers

As a beauty blogger, it’s my duty to report straight back to you if I find a beauty bargain, possible dupe or something that’s just bloody brilliant. As part of my new ‘Splurge vs Steal’ series, I’m kick starting it with a possible dupe I found not so long ago. You all know I love to use […]

NYX Cosmetics Lipsticks | Review

We want it all when it comes to beauty products for the lips: colour, shine, staying power, plumpness and an affordable price. NYX Cosmetics lipsticks ticked all the right boxes for me and quickly became an obsession during 2015. Their buttery formula and highly pigmented shades are enough to make anybody fall just as much […]

My Complete Makeup Collection & Storage

  Welcome to my obsession, the corner of my room where I spend most of my time, my beauty area. One of my favourite blog posts to read, and videos to watch on YouTube are people’s makeup storage, makeup collection or how they organise their dressing table (because i’m just so bloody nosey). This video was requested months ago based […]

The Best Concealer Ever? | Review

You must know by now how much I love the Mac Pro Longwear Concealer (read my full review here). Its full coverage, creamy formula works like an absolute dream. But, it’s a high end product, therefore it comes with a hefty price tag. So, i’ve been on a mission to find a high street alternative that is as […]
