One of my first post was about my haircare routine and how I wasn’t going to use heat on it for at least 6 months. Well I did that (apart from my sons christening) and my hair did grow back thicker and in better condition. I’m going through that postnatal hair loss now, so I’m…

My second favourite part of the day well…i’m not counting spending time with the kids breakfast, lunch, dinner etc etc.. I love taking off my makeup. It feels so good, especially as I have oily skin as sometimes by the end of the day my face feels like a big oil slick. Again I do…

Hello there, now before you think I’m crazy and that I have endless time in the morning to use all these, I don’t! It depends what my skin is doing that morning. So let me break it down for you. Cleansers – My Cleansers of choice at the moment are between Una Brennan’s firming non…

Now, the eye shadows I’m going to show you barely touch the sides on what ELF can offer. They have such a large range, baked, loose, pigments, cream and mineral. Here are  a few I brought recently. The Baked eyeshadows give the best colour payoff when used wet, otherwise they don’t do too much from…

The E.L.F brow kit is brilliant. Its so similar to my Benefit kit at a fraction of the price. There is a waxy side, a powder and a little brush, which I don’t use. I tend to use a small stiff angled brush instead. The colour works well for me as it a cool toned…

E.L.F brushes are a bit of a surprise. To be honest you expect them to be a bit rubbish but actually some of them are really good. They do all sorts of brushes, all the basic ones eyeshadow, foundation, blush but they also do stippling, kabuki, smudge, contour, angled brushes, flat top brushes… its great….

To begin the week I’m going to start with Nails. E.L.F nails come in 26 different colours (and 7 glitter shades). The colours I have are opaque with just two coats, and have a glossy finish. On my nails they are hard wearing and last 3 to 4 days without chipping, which is good for…
