My first foray into Topshop makeup

So I know Topshop Makeup has been around for a while, but it’s taken me this long to actually get round to buying any of it!  And there is a Topshop literally 100 metres from my office…  Meh, I’ve never claimed to be a trend-setter.  But a recent lunch-time shoe-shopping session turned into a makeup-shopping […] Read more…

Getting in on the foundation action

When it comes to basic makeup, you could say I’m stuck in a bit of a rut.  I’ve been using the same products in the same shades for years, apart from the odd new blusher or concealer.  I haven’t bought a new foundation since 2012, and this is mostly because I tend not to wear […] Read more…

Some new additions to my stash

It’s grey and grim outside, so what better time to add a little bit of shimmer and colour to my makeup stash?  One thing I love about the colder months is that for some reason it becomes more acceptable to be a little more heavy-handed with the ol’ war paint, especially around the eyes, and […] Read more…

Autumnal berries

There are meany reasons why I love autumn – my collection of jackets comes out of storage, heeled boots are back in, and I don’t feel like I’m about to pass out from heat exhaustion on the tube the whole time – but one of the things that makes me happiest is dusting off my […] Read more…
