I'm not entirely sure why, but I have never been blusher's number one fan, I think maybe because I have pigmentation in my skin that I try to cover with foundation and concealer and therefore it feels a little weird to then put rouge back into my cheeks. However, after my wonderful aunty bought this for me as a Christmas present, after raving about it herself I knew I needed to give it a go.
This beautiful shimmery coral shade from Milani in "Luminoso" is perfect for Blusher noobs as it adds a super natural warm glow to the cheekbones. I use a large fluffy brush to lightly dust this onto my skin and I find it makes me look so healthy. I am now a true blusher convert and can really see how much of a difference it makes to a make up look, making my cheekbones pop.

I think people sometimes underestimate how much jewellery can change someone's style and add to outfits.

I absolutely adore the moon and star hoops and haven't taken them off since I got them. I really think they add such a beautiful finishing touch to an outfit whilst not being too statement and in your face.
I would love to know if anyone has any recommendations for other great jewellery brands as I'm always on the hunt! And let me k…

Firstly, comes cleanser and for me removing my make up properly is a big deal so I try and double cleanse on a daily basis to get rid of any product build up in my pores and just get my skin feeling really nourished and clean. My two faves at the moment are my trusty Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm and my Super Facialist Vitamin C Skin Renew Cleansing Oil. Both of which are great at really thoroughly deep cleaning while still leaving my face feeling soft and not at all tight or dry. I particularly love using the Vitamin C+ Cleansing oil in the morning before make up as I feel like it really brightens and creates a beautifully smooth base for make up.
I then sweep across my Pixi Glow Tonic (How amazing is this 500ml bottle by …
