Had an amazing time in Amsterdam with my lovely boyfriend!

Definitely need to go back! Such a beautiful place and the culture is fantastic. The buildings remind me of something straight out of a fairytale.

Already planning my next trip!

We’ve all been there – coming home after a night out and falling into bed without taking our makeup off. But this naughty habit isn’t doing your skin any favours, so here are some of our tips on how to keep your skin looking peachy clean.
 
Cleanse your pores

This should be a no brainer, but you’d be surprised how few people prime their skin before bed. First off, remove your make up with a little petroleum jelly such as Vaseline – no more than a pea-sized amount – and gently wipe off with cotton wool. If you’re prone to oily skin, wash your face with a cleanser that contains salicylic or glycolic acid.
 
Freshen up your bedding
 
You may not think that your bedding can affect your skin, but did you know that an unclean pillow can make you break out in spots? As we sleep, our bodies’ natural oils deposit onto our pillows, which can clog our pores and cause pimples, so head over to www.bedstar.co.uk to refresh your pillow case and freshen up your complexion.

Don’t overdo it
 
Exfoliating is great for the skin, especially dry skin to remove dead skin cells and wash the dirt away from the pores. However, exfoliating too often can have the reverse effect and dry out your skin, so make sure you only exfoliate once or twice a week.
 
Sleep on it
 
When you sleep, fluid can gather around your eyes, which could leave you prone to looking sleep deprived and puffy in the morning. You can combat this by changing your sleeping position – stack up your pillows to keep your head elevated, encouraging to fluid to drain away from your eyes, and lie on your back. As an added bonus, try sleeping with silk pillows to avoid waking up with pillow creases.
 
Keep moisture in the air 
 
This may be a luxury for some, but if you want guaranteed supple skin, try investing in a humidifier to keep air circulating around your bedroom and prevent your skin from drying out. Just make sure it’s filled up regularly, and invest in a high quality, quiet humidifier to make sure you don’t lose out on your precious shut-eye.
 
Wake up sun kissed
 
Did somebody say something about moisture? After priming your skin with toner, make sure you moisturise to replace your skin’s essential oils. Try a water-based moisturiser if you’re prone to oily skin, and if you want to wake up with a healthy looking tan, mix a little fake tan into your moisturiser. Just make sure you apply it at least an hour before hitting the sheets, to make sure you wake up with a streak free, beautiful glow.

My favourites.

Are you excited for Lorde’s mac collection which we will see hit stores and online in June? I think we can expect a lot of dark lips, dark purples and berry shades!

Some Elizabeth Arden products that I have and am really liking right now. The shimmer powder in nude shimmer is perfect for highlighting and giving your skin a really subtle, natural glow.

Two Ceramide ultra lipsticks in Tulip and Cassis - Tulip is the lighter pink colour in the photo swatch you can see and Cassis is more of a darker pinky purple shade. These lipsticks are really nice shades and give a lot of moisture to your lips. The colour goes on exactly like the shade it looks (as opposed to some lipsticks which can totally change when on the lips). Not too sure how long these lipsticks last, I’d probably say around 2-4 hours before needs re-touched.

Also loving a few of their lip liners that I have, just natural colours that give a more defined, fuller lip without making it obvious you are wearing lip liner!

So as some of you will know, this is MACs new collection “A fantasy of flowers” for this years SS14. The colours in this collection are so cute and you will find a lot of the products in this range are mineral based, from the products for cheeks to the eye shadows, so this is for you if you are a fan of mineral based products. As usual, lipstick shades are gorgeous and will be perfect in the summer weather (I live in Glasgow, if it doesn’t rain here, we will probably be happy and take that as a summer) and for making use of colour.

The collection is now available at MAC both online and in stores.

As I touched upon before, the Osbournes are still to launch their full MAC collection and things seem to be pretty hush right now. As soon as their collection is revealed, I will do a post on it.

What do you expect from the Osbourne collection?

Illamasqua Glamore Collection which will be launching on the 27th of February 2014. Love the colours, perfect for spring.
