IMG_1772Merry Christmas and welcome to day 4 of Blogmas!

(As this is a scheduled post, I’ve planned this one beforehand)

As tradition goes in my family, every year brings a festive-style jumper to be worn on Christmas Day, and with that brings a makeup look that has to go with it (be that the beauty obsessive within). As I usually pick mine out beforehand, I know that mine is a Primark number this year; a fluffy one with a minty green colour and metallic gold spots. Pretty cute actually, and not so much on the novelty side as far as Christmas jumpers go.

After the huge launch of their Instablur foundation primer earlier this year, The Body Shop have recently introduced a version specifically for the eyes. I’ve been on the hunt for a new eyeshadow primer for the past couple of months, as my budget-friendly MUA primer hasn’t prevented creasing during the summer.

I stumbled across the advert for The Body Shop’s All in One Instablur Eye in one of their discount emails, and knowing that the original Instablur was one of their bestsellers I thought I may as well give it a try.

Since I posted My Winter Daily Skincare Routine back in January, several products have been tossed aside for more luxurious, indulgent additions.

Summer is the season that most of us get excited about; hello sunny hot weather! (Well as much as you can expect in the UK.) Therefore a warmer climate calls for a switch up of beauty products. Gone are the heavy face moisturisers, dark lip colours & endless pairs of tights; but instead? A few essentials that get me through the summer season.

I’ve been hitting the bottle for about 8 years now. Fake tanning is like an evening ritual for me; it’s a lengthy procedure, but I couldn’t live without it. But why don’t I just embrace my natural skin? Because quite frankly, I’m naturally as white as a sheet. No, I don’t suit it, and I’m not comfortable with being so pale I look transparent; which leads me to the other common question; why don’t I just use the sunbeds? Because my pasty skin is scared of sunlight; I’m so fair I could brave the UV lights for just 6 minutes and I’ll come out looking like a tomato. (And no, it doesn’t develop into a tan.) Not only that, as well as the obvious skin cancer risk I will do anything to keep my skin looking youthful, and I don’t want to end up looking like a leather handbag when I’m 30.
