Ever since the outburst of BB creams into the western world I have kept my eye on Korean beauty products and brands, and my love for them has grown bigger and bigger. It seems that Asian beauty brands, especially in Korea, are always on the cusp of new breakthrough ingredients and they also have the most cutest packaging I’ve ever seen! Continue reading
Your skin is supposed to be your buddy right? Like your best friend, being smooth, bright and looking after all that gooey stuff inside. But what happens when it just up and changes on you?!? For better or for worse, it’s weird having to get use to a change when your skin has been the same type for a while. My personal experience has been Continue reading
I don’t feature nail products much on my blog, despite the fact that I have a pretty big collection and you will hardly ever, EVER see my nails bare. Being lucky enough to stumble across the huge range of nail polishes from Ulta3, I got inspired to share my nails of the moment!

This technique involves three simple steps and promises a flawless base with fantastic coverage. Naturally, as soon as I watched the video (which you can view below) I gave it a go, and I am very impressed with the results! But, before I go into my thoughts take a look at my how to.
