Recently I’ve really been loving the highlighted, glowy look when it comes to my makeup and I’ve found a few products that really work to give me the best fresh ‘lit from within’ look which still looks quite natural and healthy and also covers any blemishes and imperfections and makes me look wide awake. Most of these products are new to me, but I’ve found that I’ve been reaching for them on a daily basis (or whenever I wear makeup) and they’re now staples in my makeup bag.
I was recently invited to Harvey Nichols in Birmingham to meet with a couple of the ladies from Stila (one of which had flown in from LA for the launch!) and get an introduction to their new Spring Summer 17 collection. I haven’t tried a lot of Stila products before (I own a lipgloss, a blusher and previously had an eyeliner) so I was really excited to be able to learn more about the brand and try out some of the new collection which, as you can tell by the name of the collection, is all about the glitter!

When I first started this blog six years ago, I didn’t own any high end makeup. I was in my second year at university and I relied on Natural Collection from Boots and the bargains that I could get from Avon. After seeing so many other bloggers talking about them, my dream was to one day own my own MAC lipstick – they looked amazing! One day in 2012 I decided to take the plunge and spend £13.50 (yes, they were cheaper then!) on MAC’s Chatterbox and since then I’ve amassed quite a large collection of MAC lipsticks. I was going to just do a top five, but I found it really hard to narrow it down so I’ve ended up with seven favourites. View Post
