Hey Guys, it's very rare that I do an 'Outfit Of The Day' post & have never done one as a blog post before! However today I'm breaking the cycle, it's been an amazing sunny Sunday, it's becoming the perfect weather to start getting rid of some of those layers & replacing them with accessories.
Here's my OOTD!
MAKEUP & ACCESSORIES
Today I was feeling a 'Posh/Peachy Boarding School Boy' vibe so started with a light peachy nude Highlight & Lipstick which worked really well with the floral pattern on the 'Killin' It' Snapback from Beauty Forever. To add a slightly more modern, masculine look I added the Apple Watch Sport, this has recently became my new must have accessory before leaving the house!

See you next Sunday,
Everybody has a favourite, whether it be a product, a tool or even a TV show. This week I'm telling you my ALL-TIME favourite Make-Up brushes that are simply a MUST in your Make-Up Collection. I'll name the types of brushes below along with my favourite brand for that particular brush.
STIPPLING BRUSH (MAC 187)
The stippling brush has been one of my all-time favourites High School, hence why it is at the very top of our list. A lot of people love using these for creme blushes or bronzers but I personally think this is a brilliant tool for achieving the perfect foundation. The bristles are so soft, feeling extremely dense at the base opening up into a more flexible yet sturdy shape, using a foundation with a slightly thinner consistency whilst pairing it with circular motions of the brush, you're guaranteed to get that full coverage WOW-FACTOR!
FAN BRUSH (MORPHE G23)
Finding this brush was an absolute nightmare but I absolutely knew with all my heart it would become my holy grail of brushes! If you've seen my Video's you probably already know that this comes out with the Highlighters. The sparse, wide spread bristles are absolutely perfect for gliding those intense highlighters up & across the cheek bones, making blending an absolute breeze.
LARGE POWDER BRUSH (MAC 150)
When you're putting so much money, time & effort into looking completely flawless you need a fabulous brush to set your face, making sure nothing is going to run leaving you looking like a HOT MESS! Finding the perfect large powder brush is a little more challenging than it seems, a lot that I have tried seem to spread bristles all over my face. Nothing can compare to the MAC 150, a beautiful large, unbelievably soft brush that cleans up like a charm and transforms your face from oily to matte in seconds. If you're going to invest in a high-end makeup brush, make sure it's this one!
BLENDING FLUFFY BRUSH (MORPHE M218)
Eye shadow brushes can be tricky, especially when you're using so many of them in one look. Though I've found that this fluffy blending brush is so versatile it can be used for almost anything, working colour into the crease, buffing out, applying colour to the lid and of course, blending. This brush is rounded and extremely fluffy to help get that air-brushed effect, I love this one so much I bought 2 extras so I can use them for multiple things within the same Makeup Look.
Those are all my current MUST-HAVE Makeup Brushes. Helping create these fabulous, flawless transformations day after day.
Let me know your favourite brushes below or if you prefer anything other than what I've listed.
Thanks for reading you lovely bunch.
See you next Sunday,
Hey everyone! Here are my March Favourites, for all you Make-Up addicts looking for your fix, you may not find it in this post but there are some amazing products that have really helped me out this month!
AP24 WHITENING TOOTHPASTE
Toothpaste? Really? Yes! I was just given this AP24 Whitening Fluoride Toothpaste which retails at £12. I'm no stranger to whitening products, over the years I've tried everything for that Simon Cowell smile yet nothing has worked. I've been using this for about 2 weeks now and can definitely notice a difference, my mouth feels fresher and my teeth are definitely at least 2 shades lighter! I'm thinking of doing an in depth review of this product with before & after photo's.
Now if you follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Snapchat you will know I'm a sucker for a bath bomb. It was actually going to be the first thing in my online store before I came up with the fabulous JCC Lip Scrubs. Walking past an organic shop in town I spotted a huge stand of 'BOMB COSMETICS' in the window and immediately went in to start my Bath Bomb Haul. The Ice Cream Queen is so far my favourite, with a strong Sandalwood scent, it infuses your bath with a thin oil that moisturises the whole body, leaving you feeling squeaky clean and glowing all day long. Though, the Cranberry & Lime is slowly taking over my house because I literally can't get enough of the smell! You can find them by clicking the link below-
After over-bleaching & over-heating my hair throughout the Winter I've really struggled to manage and style my hair on a daily basis. Trying to find a cure I discovered that Coconut Oil has SO many benefits it's actually unbelievable, among them all this is supposed to be a FANTASTIC supplement for a hair mask and I found that by heating it in a bowl for around 10 seconds, lathering it on your hair then leaving it for 15 minutes gives your hair a brilliant shine whilst leaving it feeling moisturised and replenished. I've been doing this 2-3 times a week depending on how bad my hair has been feeling, it's a great after-bath ritual!
Along with the Coconut oil, this detangling brush has saved my life! No, I'm not being dramatic, he's really pulled through for me. Because of the terrible condition my hair has been in whilst I've been growing it, I've literally not been able to put my hands through my hair. That's where this bad boy came in handy. These normally retail for about £10/12.99, but I found a bunch of these in Home Bargains for £1.49. I practically cleaned the shelf of these brushes. If you have thick & unruly hair, or if it's just as damaged as mine definitely invest in one of these. Absolute life saver.
MAC BRONZING POWDER
When I first purchased this I absolutely hated it. It the middle of Winter, I was pale as a ghost and this was just way too much for my skin tone and resulted in me looking muddy/orange. Though now we're coming into the summer months, I've been using the tanning beds more, getting out into the sun (for the 1 day we've had it) and using this products has been giving a beautiful, warm glow to my contour. I'm not sure if my current intense skin care routine has played a part in this products brilliance but I'm obsessed. This is most likely going to be a favourite for the next few months!
That's it for my March Monthly Favourites, have you guys tried any of these products? I'd love to know your thoughts in the comment section below.
Thank you for reading.
