High pigment, high performance, oil-free foundation creates a flawless canvas that lasts up to 12 hours. Makeup artists love how it feels comfortable on skin while hiding even hard-to-cover imperfections. Designed for normal to oily skin. Smooths skin texture and visibly evens skin tone. Color-true pigments virtually disappear on skin for smooth, even application and blending.

Introducing my current favourite foundation, Laura Mercier’s Silk Creme Oil Free. I ‘found’ that this ‘dation’ left my face looking flawless. It left a glow in all the right places, and matted up all the wrong.

Surprisingly, one of its 16 shades matched my skin-tone to a t-shirt. Yes, I accidentally ended up wearing it on my shirt a few times. Luckily, I have a washing machine.

I also have a camera, and have noticed this makes my photos look LIKE-worthy. I serve LUKES now (not the name). 😜

It’s my favourite foundation since Cargo HD.

Alohahahaha = the Hawaiian laugh.

In other news, here’s my blog about Dior’s It-Lash Mascara. Are you ready? You better be. If not, don’t worry – there’s still time.

Dior Addict It-lash can transform the eyes in a single sweep for a fabulous impact, as if by magic. Volume, length and the most extraordinary stylistic effects come together to achieve a fashion-forward, modern-day doe-eyed look. With unconditional hold, easy to apply and easy to remove, it is the ideal mascara for women who want it all, and want it now.

It’s honestly the best mascara I’ve used in a long time. I’ve been blessed with longer-than-average lashes. So, not all mascara wands work for me, but this one does.

I look for volume, length and curl. This particular mascara does it all. It’s the triple threat of mascaras.

No, it doesn’t come cheap as the ones on the high street, but – it’s Dior. Loved by all Christians.

Bathe in a swirling purple galaxy. Drop this gorgeous globe into the water and let the sensual jasmine, rose and oudh oil fragrance envelop you. Creamy cocoa butter waters and shimmering plastic-free luster make you feel like an ethereal being from head to toe. Drift away with a divine experience that lingers long after the fizz is done.

If you’ve been following my blog since the beginning, you’ll know that I’m a Goddess.

God intricately made ‘mii, and bestowed me upon you all.

Anyway, Lush got wind of this and decided to create a custom bath bomb for me. Look, the story they’re telling is they made it for Ariana, but we all know the truth! 😜😂

(Goddess was used in Ariana’s ‘God is a Woman’ video)

So, anyway, Lush, thanks!

As much as I love Ariana’s music, God ain’t a woman, he’s a Man.

This looks a lot like amethyst, my favourite stone.

I love nail art and typically get my nails done twice a month.

I use shallac on my nails and there’s such a wide variety of base colours that I’d tend to choose two on each hand.

However, I’ve recently discovered an awesome place that does incredible nail art on shellac nails and the work they do is something else entirely!

There’s a range of nail designs on their Instagram: @BeautyBoxNW5.

Here are a few of my favourites:

If you’re in London and want to get your nails done, pay them a visit. You won’t regret it…

Merry Christmas [for less than two months ago], apparently!

I’m your belated E.l.f that’s still on the shelf! Pardon?!?

Umm, I’d like to start by mentioning that I have no recollection of an idea as to why I didn’t post this earlier, but I’m assuming sometimes, you do that thing called: mild, sE.l.f-diagnosed amnesia.

Tell me when to stop?

After using my brain (for a bit longer than I usually would), I remembered that the reason behind my late postage was that I haven’t worn mascara in like: forever! Listen, when you have a fringe (that BANGS most days), you don’t really need to, y’know?!

In recent times, I have been allowing the pores on my forehead (or … as it’s affectionately called: the ‘epicentre’ of my head) some freedom to breathe.

This, of course, has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that my fringe (that BANGS most days) outgrew itself and I’m too lazy to give it a snip. Thanks!

So, anyway, I have been using it (E.l.f, not my fringe) properly since yesterday and THAT is why I’m writing this post late… SURPRISE! Better late than never, am I right? I’m probably wrong, but still a wise saying nonetheless.

Achieve thicker, fuller, and longer lashes that are beautiful and natural.

E.l.f’s mascara has been MY little helper, that’s for sure! I’m proud to announce that I’ll be using its lash help all year round!

Price: cheap AFF. I must’ve paid like £3 for this…  I bought it whilst I was in the midst of “an emergency” – one where my fringe was misbehaving and I had to sort out my eyes so as not to look like an unbrushed-hair corpse divorcee – instead of bride!

The wand is really, very small (even though the description says it’s large) – micro in comparison to the other ones I’d used previously. Not gonna lie- when I first tried it, I wasn’t a fan because I had a fringe which was all over the place and felt like it was clumpy…

However, since I no longer have a fringe, I have been obsessed with this mascara’s wand. It really fans out my lashes, and makes them look thicker, lifted and curlier.  I now [when it’s not making my fringe hair (yes, really!!!) find that my lashes no longer] look clumpy!

In light of these turn of events, I now hypothesise that size doesn’t always matter.

Result: you tell me..? [Please bear in (a forest, but also in the) mind that I don’t and have never worn fake lashes…]

Here’s the “before” image, obvs…

Haters would say that’s a Snapchat filter… Lovers would say that I actually was born with a brown beauty spot located on my “WHO NOSE WHAT’LL HAPPEN?” area.

Okay,  to conclude, I’d give it a 5* (like the Uber rating).

Also, before I forget… Merry Christmas for this year, in case I don’t get round to wishing y’all it in like 9/10 months!
