Becca Makeup || Review

I have wanted to try Becca cosmetics since Jaclyn Hill bought out the highlight, Champagne Pop. It is just so high end and expensive, but when I saw they had travel sized I jumped at the chance. Trying these little beauties pretty much sold me on the brand and I took the plunge and splurged out on a full size highlight. Then a few days ago, while on my regular TK Maxx run I found a full size beauty at an affordable price. So with my collection growing I had to write a post about it.
I have heard lots of good things about this primer and really wanted to give it a go, but I'm cheap and really didn't want to buy the full size in case  I didn't like it. So travel size it is, a great size to try and seems to have lasted my a long time. This primer has a more golden hue to it and adds that skin glow under your foundation. It doesn't feel oily which is great, as an oily skinned person I didn't want to add more oils. It blends into the skin well and drys slightly leaving a smooth and slightly tacky base to apply your foundation. The finish is beautiful and really adds that extra oomph to your makeup. I would definitely recommend this primer especially for more tanned to darker skinned people. 

For more paler skin tones this primer is really good. Just like the Backlight primer, it has a beautiful consistency and smells more fruity. Again leaves the skin looking smooth and slightly more supple. The difference is the colour, this primer is purple with more of a silver glow that a golden glow. It adds an instant highlight to the face and creates a more dewy and supple look. I would highly recommend this primer for more pale skin tones and I will definitely be purchasing again.



In the Black Friday sales I picked up a mini Opal highlight and it was beautiful. It is a cult classic from this brand and just made me want more of their highlights. This is when I picked up Moonstone and I'm in love. A beautiful pearl golden highlight, that is blinding. Go light for a natural glow or pack it on so it is as bright as the sun. Both highlighters are shimmery, creamy and blend into the skin like a dream. They even work with dry or wet brushes, depending on the intensity that you want. Plus they have handy mirrors in the inside, which is perfect for travel, even the mini has a mirror. They are so good I need more, they are some of the beautiful highlighters I have used.







To add to my collection I was lucky enough to find the shade Bronze Amber in TK Maxx for £19.99. Of course it went straight in my basket. It is a more bronze highlight for deeper skin tones to my pale face, but I have found it works beautifully as a glowing bronzer. The shimmer is subtle when used sparingly and just looks beautiful. It adds that beautiful bronzed glow we all want in the summer months and looks really natural. Again the consistency is creamy and blends beautifully, and comes with that all important mirror.









A great brand, really worth the hype.

In beauty beauty review face Fenty Fenty Beauty Fenty Beauty Review Fenty Review Highend Highlight Lips makeup Makeup Review Rihanna

Fenty Beauty || Review

Do you remember when Rihanna came out with  her beauty line?? Well it's taken me that long to finally get my hands on a few of her products. I still want a few more but only being available at Harvey Nichols, makes it a little hard to get your hands on. I mean I live going into London bit it's a real effort to try and actually find it. I'm not saying I didn't try but London ca  be a nightmare when Google maps sends you in the wrong direction. Any way going on a tangent, here are the few products I picked up...

This became a cult classic if the brand, and Instagram videos were going viral. Showcasing it's bright vibrant colour and long lasting capability, it was everything you wanted from a liquid lipstick. Seeing people drink coffee, kiss and even eat and this sucker stayed on. So I was hooked and it really was the main product I wanted. I mean a beautiful bold red colour that doesn't transfer, sign me up.


The bottle is beautiful and gives me mad Louboutin vibes. With its rose gold stem and glass jar, it is undeniably Rhianna. The applicator is different from others, though I have come across it once before, on a Kiko liquid lipstick, being more of a horse foot applicator. This being the fact it doesn't have a point and it majority round. The colour is so beautiful it work with pretty much every skin tone, even my pale ghost face. I don't even mind the applicator so much, it does take some practise but once you have the hang of it you can look sexy a f. There's just one down side...

Where is the staying power, the non-transfer. Am I using it wrong?? I just don't know how they got it to stay without transfer. Kissing, drinking and talking and it can get everywhere, even when it felt dry on my lips it was still wet. Now I have used lip liner, drying out my lips and even scrubbing my lips, and the only way I have managed to make it matte is by applying some loose powder on the top. After that it look beautiful, but not what I was really promised. So yes I would recommend it especially if you don't mind putting powder on it. But as a get up and go it would have to be a no. If you have tried it or have any other suggestions on how to get it matte, let a girl know x


Travel sets and mini set are my all time favourite, why?? Because they are cheaper and they are usually small and mighty. Same can be said for this duo, a nearly full sized universal gloss bomb and mini highlight. A perfect introduction to the brand, with a killer highlight and glossy lips. The gloss isn't so lip gloss like, it's not sticky or tacky and doesn't go everywhere. It settles perfectly on the lips with a very subtle shimmer, and really absorbs into the lips. Leaving them looking, juicy, hydrated and beautiful. The applicator is a standard doe foot and the packaging looks very chic and high quality.


Moving on to my favourite bit, highlight. This highlight is in the shade Hustler Baby, a beautiful rose gold shade that really packs a punch. That glow for all seasons and a little really does go a long way. Being mini means it is great for travel and the best part about this mini....it comes with a mirror! Literally the best thing to happen to travel size and it is so compact it's great for on the go. No fall out and blends like butter into the skin.


I cannot wait to try more of the Killa Watt highlighters as they are so good and gives you a highlight for the gods.

Stay Gorgeous

Tips On Getting Married In Skegness


Planning a wedding can be stressful at the best of times. There are so many different things to consider, from the
venue and the guest list to the table settings and, of course, your bridal gown. It can seem impossible to know
where to start. However, as you already have a destination – Skegness, at least, you have a starting point from
which you can work. Of course, there is still a lot of hard work that needs to be done. With that being said, read
on to discover some useful tips on planning a wedding in this tourist seaside spot.

Choosing a wedding venue – There are lots of amazing wedding venues in Skegness, so you should have no trouble
choosing one that appeals to you. Some of the best places to host your special day in this area include Skendleby
Hall, The Granary at Elms Farm, Caley Hall Hotel, Mount Amelia, and Sedgeford Hall. Lincolnshire is a beautiful
region, so there are lots of spectacular venues on the outskirts of Skegness.

Include a selection of accommodation options when sending out the invite – If you are getting married in
Skegness and you are not from the area, or you have a lot of people travelling from far away, it is a good idea to
include a list of accommodation options when sending out the invite. Make sure to include the price of the rooms
at the venue, as well as details on how to book. This will make it a lot easier for your guests that need to book a
hotel for the night.

When to get married – It probably does not come as a surprise to learn that August is the busiest time of year in
this seaside location. In terms of weather averages, August is the hottest month, very closely followed by July.
September and June both have averages of 18 degrees high and 10 degrees low, with May following at 15 degrees
high and seven degrees low. With it being a seaside area, most people do decide to get married during the
summer months here. A lot of venues charge higher prices during the summer, especially on the weekend, so it is
worth keeping this in mind when you are looking for the right wedding package for you. You can save some money
by planning your wedding to take place a month earlier or later, or by having it one a weekday instead.
As you can see, there is a lot that needs to be considered when planning your wedding in Skegness. From the
venue itself to your accommodation, there are lots of different elements that need to be planned, booked, and
paid for. However, hopefully, you now feel more prepared for the task at hand. So, all that is left to say is
congratulations and good luck!

Stay Gorgeous
