Mark Hill No Knots Detangling Spray! 

I bought this product as I have to admit I am the worse at brushing my hair regularly, once a day is my max but my hair is so long I should really do it more often so as you can imagine after a wash it gets very knotty. 

I used this after washing my hair and was very impressed with the results. It smelled gorgeous and made the combing process a lot easier. It’s very light weigh and didn’t feel greasy once I dried my hair. It’s packed with vitamins and minerals. I was very impressed to read it can be thrown in your handbag and used throughout the day to refresh your hair. The packaging is cute and it doesn’t break the bank to purchase. I think this will be a handbag must from now on. 

Can be purchased from Boots £5.49

Applying Blusher

It seems like a easy task but so many get it wrong. I’ve seen a lot of people apply blush to far into the face, which isn’t flattering at all. 

There are two simple techniques when applying blush.

The first is the two finger rule, place two fingers next to your nostril, were the outer finger ends that is the line in which you do not cross when applying your blush. 

The next is from the middle of your eye (where your pupil is) follow the line down to your cheek and do not take the blush any further towards your nose.


Hope this helps 😊

Body Shop Honey Bronze Powder

I bought this the other week to try as I’ve heard great things regarding this Bronzer. It comes in 4 shades light, fair, medium and dark. I bought the medium shade, if I’m honest because of my skin tone I think the dark would best suit me. The 3 lighter colours would be perfect for fairer skin tones. It’s a lovely product the packaging is nice and compact. The Bronzer actually contains honey which is an amazing idea and can only be good for your skin. For the price I think it’s a lovely product. I will be purchasing the darker shade for myself and this shade (medium) will be perfect to pop into my kit to use on fair models. 

This can be purchased from Body Shop for £13.00, there are lots of discount codes out there to use online or in shop which offer 40% off so this product becomes even more of a bargain than it all ready is :-)

Superdrug All Over Vitamin E Body Cream.

This all over body cream is very creamy and hydrating but it’s easily absorbed and it’s not greasy. It contains natural Vitamin E, A,B,F and H also contains coconut oil and Horse chestnut Extract. It really feels like it’s moisturising your skin, it left my skin feeling lovely and soft. The scent is gorgeous it reminds me of being on holiday. You get so much in the tub (475ml) and the price is so good. I will most certainly be buying this more often. 

You can purchased this from Superdrug for £2.99.

Collection 2000 No Clumps Mascara

I purchased this Mascara after having a little browse around in my local superdrug. The promise of no clumps and the reasonable price was too good an opportunity to miss. 

I love the colour of the packaging. The brush is a great design and the wand is nice and bouncy. I applied three coats of the mascara to give maximum effect. I really liked the look of my lashes and found it did make them a nice length and no clumps. Although I do like a bit of volume, I could always do a coat of a volume mascara to enhance that. All in all I think it’s a lovely Mascara for the price and would be great for someone who wants that extra length to their lashes.

Highlighting Tips

Types of products to highlight with-


Liquids: Liquids are the most common, they blend into the skin very easily and look the most natural. Liquid highlighters are normally blended using the fingers.

Creams: are also very popular and create a natural look and blend into the skin nicely, although not quite as easily blended as Liquids. Also applied using your fingers.

Powders: Powders are good for oilier skin types, if you have dry skin I wouldn’t recommend using a powder highlight as it can enhance the dry area. Some products included a shimmer Bronzer also so you have two for the price of one ☺️best applied with a small powder brush.

Areas to Highlight-

Cupids bow
Under the brow bone
The top of the cheekbones
Bridge of the nose
