L’Oreal Paris Miss Candy

L’Oreal’s Miss Candy collection is so sweet – I’m sure you’ll see it everywhere. I’m already a fan of the Color Infallible eye shadows, and the Miss Candy line up is gorgeous. Sassy Chamallow, Innocent Turquoise (shown above) and Naughty Strawberry are all beautifully summery with a kick of sparkle to make your eyes pop. 

I also love the nail polish in Marie Antoinette; a gentle, cream-laden pink and a great base shade for doing some summer milk shake inspired nail art over. I’ll swatch it when I get the chance.

Melvita Rose Nectar Fresh Micellar Water

So, my love affair with Melvita continues. I took the Rose Nectar Fresh Micellar Water on holiday with me to give it a proper trial, and as expected, it is absolutely lovely. A gorgeously gentle water that is very effective in cleansing away make up and grime. I’d stop short of saying that it will tackle waterproof mascara, but it dealt very well with foundation and eye colours. The scent is very rosy (if you don’t like a strongly scented cleanser, then steer clear) which I like a lot – if you love the smell of roses, it really brings something the otherwise quite dull task of removing make up. Some micellars (oil in water) can dehydrate the skin a bit and are better suited to oily skin, but I found that this one kept my skin very nicely balanced while still making it feel fresh – perfect for a summer cleansing routine.  At £14.50, with organic credentials as long as your shopping list, it’s a keeper!

Rouge Bunny Rouge New Glassy Glosses

Rouge Bunny Rouge New Glassy Glosses
Cherry Clafoutis, Mousse Fandago, Rahat Lokum, Raspberry Meringue and Rhubarb Custard.

What can I say about these delicious Glassy Glosses from Rouge Bunny Rouge other than that they are divine with a hint of greyish nude in the backdrop that is so flattering. The formula is non-sticky, super-silky, light on the lip and very shiny, and the six new shades are all about the sweeter things in life and are named for mouth-watering desserts. They’re £22 each at Zuneta from June.

How to get rid of tired eyes

Tired eyes aren’t just the bane of new parents and party-rockers. Busy lives, stresses and strains can all contribute. So how do you get rid of tired eyes – Well for starters, are you taking care of your under eye skin-

How to get rid of tired eyes

The skin under your eyes can be ten times thinner than elsewhere on your face. And due to fewer oil glands, if you neglect this area of your skin, this is where premature ageing will show. Now, thanks to modern skincare, there are shelves of dedicated eye creams and products to help not just mask dark circles and tired eyes, but to treat them. From products promising to battle bags, to others helping to combat dark circles. Get into the habit of applying a dedicated eye cream both in the morning, and at night time. These will help rejuvenate and replenish the delicate skin there, adding much needed moisturise. This is particularly important as we get older because as we age the skin under our eyes gets thinner. Try using an eye cream rich in Vitamins A, E and C. And when you are removing your makeup, do treat your skin gently: never rub or pull skin, rather pat it.

Secondly, are you getting enough beauty sleep- Experts say if you’re feeling tired during the day, this is an indication you’re not getting enough sleep. On average, seven to nine hours is recommended though everyone is different. But don’t over-sleep, this is just as bad as not getting enough. Diet is another vital factor and it’s also important to make sure you’re drinking enough fluid. Water in particular helps keep you hydrated which in turn helps your skin to look better, flushing out toxins and tackling lines and wrinkles.

Have a rummage round your kitchen for natural helpers to soothe tired eyes. Top of the list are cucumber, white potato and a cooled, used tea bag. Placing a thin slice of the potato or cucumber over each of your eyes acts as cold compress while the tannins in the tea help to reduce puffiness and help dark circles. So just lie down and relax for about ten minutes if you can and let natural remedies take effect.

And makeup is your friend in this instances so do use concealer to hide dark circles in particular. Plus white eyeliner along the lower lash line will help create a wide-eyed look.
Finally for some,the problem runs much deeper into genes, diet and medical conditions such as anemia. So if in doubt, go see you doctor for advice.

Sephora + Pantone Shades of Nature Palette

OMG… I think I have died and gone to beauty heaven! I love this gorgeous palette from the Pantone and Sephora collaboration. Not only is it a stellar palette, with some incredible shades, but it represents the very best of collaborative beauty. Other brands should look and learn from this one. It is $55 which personally I think is amazing value. 

Sephora + Pantone Shades of Nature PaletteThe other collaboration that is working incredibly well is OPI for Sephora. If I was heading to the US anytime soon, I’d be so fast off the plane at JFK immigration would never catch me to pick up one of these Scentsational Six-Fruit Scented Nail Lacquers; a snip at $24.50. The scents are Mango, Tutti frutti, Cherry, Citrus, Blueberry and Watermelon. Don’t mind if I do.
