Travel-Sized Beauty Favourites for Your Next Holiday
Times are tough right now. As well as the ongoing societal problem of systematic and systemic racism against black people across the world, the Coronavirus pandemic continues. With many of us still abiding by lockdown restrictions, travelling has been severely disrupted.  You may have had a holiday planned that’s been cancelled or postponed. You might have planned to take a quick trip away to escape the hustle and bustle of life. You probably planned a staycation to get away from your hometown for a short while. Regardless of your travel plans, it’s annoying to have to put things on hold.

Face SPF Products You Need to Try Right Now
It’s hot. There I said it. It really crept up on us. We were given rain and storms before a heatwave no one saw coming. I’m the first to burn too. I’ll step outside and within 10 minutes, I’m a rosy hue. This list is as much for me as it is you and I’m excited about it, let me tell you.

Summer Lovin’
You've binge-watched Normal People, developed a mild case of repetitive strain injury from swiping left on boys who are 'just looking for a quarantine buddy ;)' and Love Island 2020 (much like my own love life) is cancelled.   If you're a hopeless romantic like myself and need your fix of summer lovin' in the absence of skin-tight white jeans peacocking around a firepit (I mock, but I've never missed an episode), then pick up a love story.

The Benefits of Meditation On Your Mental Health
Life is still a little on the crazy side right now… I mean, if you’d have asked me back in January what I thought I’d achieve this year, you can bet your bottom dollar I wouldn’t have said building a loungewear collection and not leaving my house for months, other than to go food shopping and walk the dog. No socialising… no holidays… not going into work…  Life has literally been flipped upside down for a lot of people and now more than ever, it’s important to look after our mental health and wellbeing. Spending most of your time alone, or with the same few people in your household can also be hard, especially if you’re a natural social butterfly.

Makeup Products to Discover in Quarantine

During quarantine, it is the perfect time to give your skin a breather from all the makeup we are used to wearing on a daily basis. However, sitting in the house all day, every day can really bring your mood down so I feel like putting a bit of glam on and your favourite outfit to lounge around the house can be helpful in lifting your spirits. 

These makeup products are super light on the skin which is perfect for in-house glam and will give a fresh, glowy look. 

1. The Nars Illuminator is a perfect base for your makeup as it is a really thin liquid veil for your skin to boost the glow from under your foundation. Adding this as your base means that even if you powder, there will still be a subtle glow to the skin! 

 

2. The Nars Sheer Glow Foundation is a fabulous product for a good amount of coverage to feel like you have glammed yourself up but still a lightweight feel on the skin as we don’t want to be sat watching Disney+ feeling caked with makeup! It also has a dewy finish which helps to achieve the healthy, radiant look. 

 

3. Too Faced Papa Don’t Peach blush is another fabulous product to achieve a radiant look. It is the perfect peach shade which is flattering on any skin tone and is a really buildable pigment so perfect for blush addicts and the girl who just wants a slight wash of colour! Also, it is a shimmery blush so adds another subtle glow to the skin. I don’t have to wear a highlighter when I wear this blusher! 

 

4. The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer is a perfect bronzer for a glowy, summertime look. It is a lightly pigmented bronzer which oozes radiance in the most flattering way possible. It is a lightweight product which blends seamlessly into the skin and meshes well with other products too. This bronzer adds to your glow without being a shimmery bronzer. Also, it has a range of shades so can suit any skin tone! 

 

5. The MAC Boldly Bare lip pencil is a fabulous addition to your makeup bag during quarantine. The MAC liners are also creamy and are super easy to apply which is an added bonus! The ‘Boldly Bare’ shade has nude undertones creating the ultimate, natural look. 

 

6. Lastly, one of my favourite new products that I have got my hands on is the Nars Afterglow Lip Balm. This features a Monoi hydrating complex and antioxidants to keeps your lips hydrated throughout the day. It also comes in several shades so if you are wanting a subtle tint to the lips, this is perfect!
