All Things Foundation With Reviews.Com

When it comes to makeup I am all about making sure my foundation is flawless, i’m a strong believer that your base makeup either makes or breaks the end result because if that foundations not right, you can bet your bottom dolla that everything else is gonna go tits up … in my experience anyway.

I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again for you people in the back, foundation is the one makeup product that I don’t mind splurging on and spending a little extra because when it looks good I just feel so much more confident, and in the words of my girl Demi Lovato, ‘what’s wrong with being confident?’

NYX Ultimate Eyeshadow Palette

You’ve already guessed by the title that we’re gonna be chatting about one of NYX’s eyeshadow palettes here so let’s just get into it. The ‘Brights’ version of the Ultimate Palette is literally b-e-a-utiful and also something that usually I would shy away from because the colours are so god damn bright (hence the name) and colourful but your girl is being all sorts of brave this year so I thought let’s give it a go eyy.

Friendships And When To Step Back

I think there comes a point in everyones life when you hear that little bell in your head and are hit with that voice that asks you ‘why do you keep trying?’, i’m referring to friendships of course but tbh all types of relationships can be applied to this.

I’ve never been the type of girl who had one specific group of friends that did everything together, i’m more of a friend here and there sort of girl if you know what I mean? I can count on one hand the number of close friends I have and i’m just fine with that, in fact I prefer it.

Pixi Glow Tonic

I was on twitter a few weeks ago asking my fellow Twittorians if anyone could recommend something that would transform my dull, blemished skin into a more radiant, glowing canvas, and of course twitter always delivers due to the absolutely amazing bloggers, youtubers, beauty babes etc. that are out there and willing to share their tips and secrets.

I hear you all asking ‘so what was the verdict?’ well … after a few suggestions the Pixi Glow Tonic led the race by a mile, quite a few people advised me to use it and that it works miracles especially on acne prone skin which is actually something i’ve been lucky enough not to have to deal with but just like everyone else I do get break outs so if it helps tackle those spots, i’m there!

My Olaplex Experience

26982231_10155829020086815_1047310939_oYou’ve heard of Olaplex, right? I mean it’s literally everywhere in the hair care world now and I feel like it just came from nowhere like one minute i’d never seen, read or heard a single thing about it and the next it was blowing up my Instagram feed.

For those of you who’ve not yet came across Olaplex lemme just give you a little sum up of what it is and what it does. Basically Olaplex is a brand with miracle products that helps bond, strengthen, repair and protect hair from damage caused through bleaching, dying etc. and will be found in your hairdressers’ cupboards just sitting there waiting to transform your locks. Now I’m no hairdresser or hair expert so what I’m telling you here is just what I know/been told and have experienced but I’ll insert a link somewhere in this post to their website for more info.

Things I Wish I Had Done Before 25

If you read my birthday wish-list post then you’ll know that I have just turned the grand old age of 25 … I mean I can’t deal! Just before my birthday I started reflecting on my life so far, you know as you do (I am not dramatic at all am I) and I randomly just began thinking of some of the things I wish I had done before now, I guess you could call them regrets in a way … I can hear you all now, ‘Oh Carolanne you sound so chipper, I can tell I’m in for a great time here’. I’m not trying to sound like a debbie downer but we all have things we wish we had done sooner or just in general, right?
