Mascaras - Friday Favourites

 I've been on the quest for the perfect mascara since I was about 13 and it's such personal thing that I don't claim to have found it though I have found some that I genuinely love. So here they are

  • Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara - black and smokey and giving great volume. Not cruelty-free
  • LimeLife Perfect Mascara - I'm not usually a fan of fibre mascaras but this one lengthens and volumises and doesn't make your lashes feel crispy. It's the one I rebuy over and over again 
  • Maybelline Great Lash Big - I loathe the original of this but this version with a fatter brush is my go-to high street mascara. Not cruelty-free 
  •  LimeLife Making Waves - I hate waterproof mascaras and i've tried lots. They are a must for any makeup artist and usually they are horrible. This one is fantastic.

Foundation Brushes - Friday Favourites

 I love makeup brushes and I have a lot, but most of the time I think you really don't need that many and lots of brushes are multi-taskers. But getting the right tool and technique for your foundation application is important - I tend to switch between fingers, blender and brushes, whatever works for you is fine but I know there are loads of brushes out there to choose from so here are my favourites.

🖌️ Real Techniques Expert Face Brush - they've changed the design of this and it's not quite as lovely as the original but it's still a great size and washes well. Great for medium to full coverage.
🖌️ LimeLife Fan Brush - not my usual shape or size for foundation application but this is great if, like me, you want a lovely sheer coverage blended in to look like your skin.
🖌️ Zoeva - this is my brush of choice when working on clients as I can be precise with where I apply product and build coverage. Ideal for those with a smaller face this is the smallest of the three and it's on sale at the moment. Great for medium coverage.

30 Day Tech Detox

 I don't know about you but my phone use sky rocketed during 2020. I was averaging over 8 hours a day and feeling terrible. Not only that but my children were watching me be a slave to a screen. Over Christmas I had some much needed phone-free time and it was incredible. So I've designed a 30 Day Tech Detox that aims to help everyone have a bit of a tech clean-up and encourage healthier habits. During a global pandemic tech has kept us connected to the loved ones we have been missing and for many of use, have kept businesses afloat. But with no basic tech hygiene in place the positives of connection and industry are getting outweighed by mental health issues, lack of sleep and the addictive qualities of social media. For those of use who suffer with depression and anxiety the last thing we need is to be comparing ourselves to other people for hours every day. 

This detox doesn't aim to make you phone-free, it just helps you reevaluate how you are using your tech and to claw back some of the reality in your real life.
