PROJECT PAN – Things I want to hit pan on/use up by the end of the year!

So I’ve had a bit of a realisation recently – I have a lot of make-up. No, seriously, a lot of make-up. I have so much make-up, and while I’m fairly good at decluttering stuff I don’t or rarely use, there is still a lot of it there always, and because of that I never… Continue reading PROJECT PAN – Things I want to hit pan on/use up by the end of the year!

Rihanna – Wild Thoughts Inspired Make-Up Look

Did anyone else absolutely lose their minds when this video came out? Rihanna looked AMAZING, and the song is one I’ve had on repeat all summer.

I Went To Australia And All I Bought Was This Lousy Make-Up

Hi, everyone! Long time no see! For those of you who don’t know, I just spent the past month travelling Australia, hence there haven’t been any posts from me. It was the most amazing month ever, full of sun and exploring and more cheese toasties than one person needs, but I had the best time… Continue reading I Went To Australia And All I Bought Was This Lousy Make-Up

BECCA x Chrissy Teigen vs. BECCA x Jaclyn Hill – similarities, differences, do you need both?

It’s no secret here on my blog that I looove BECCA Cosmetics. Every release they come out with is a release I get excited for, and their new palette (£45, buy here) that they created in a collaboration with Chrissy Teigen was no exception. I couldn’t wait until it came out on Cult Beauty here… Continue reading BECCA x Chrissy Teigen vs. BECCA x Jaclyn Hill – similarities, differences, do you need both?

Big Ol’ Collective/Cult Beauty Haul + Summer Goody Bag Review!

Hello, boys and girls! It’s been a minute since I’ve posted on here and that’s because my laptop decided to crash and die on me a couple of weeks ago, so it’s been in for repair!

ANTI HAUL #2 – Make-Up I Will NOT Be Buying!

Hello again! It’s that time of year again where we get a million and one releases from every brand out there as summer approaches, and I thought it’d be the perfect opportunity to make another anti-haul post!

TARTE Haul, First Impressions & (Nearly) Full Face!

Guess what? I bought more make-up. Is anyone even surprised at this point? No? Good. I love almost everything I’ve tried from Tarte so far, so when an email popped into my inbox about them offering SEVEN PRODUCTS FOR FIFTY POUNDS, I was on that website faster than the speed of love. Within the deal,… Continue reading TARTE Haul, First Impressions & (Nearly) Full Face!

If all my make-up disappeared, what would I repurchase?

Hello, my name is Ellen and I’m addicted to buying make-up. Having said that, and as much as I love trying new things, I have my fail-safes that I always go back to. I’ve recently acquired a lot of new stuff – some good and some bad – but as I was reorganising my collection… Continue reading If all my make-up disappeared, what would I repurchase?

Surprise, surprise, I bought more make-up!

My Top Five Eyeshadow Palettes in the Whole World!

Hi all! This week I’ve been doing a massive cull of my make-up and I’ve shifted a solid third of what I used to have.

Show and Teal – Greeny Blue Half Cut Crease Make-Up Look

Today’s make-up look was inspired by this gorgeous pigment from MAC that my cousin Hannah picked me up for Christmas.
