A new trend has been travelling throughout the beauty community recently, known as strobing. Although it sounds complex and advanced, all it really means is using a larger amount of highlighter on the high points of your face, without using any bronzer or contour. This new technique, used by celebrities such as Beyonce and the Kardashians, is easy to do, saves you time in your makeup routine and looks gorgeous, so I thought I'd talk some more about it.

I suspect that you've heard of contouring, since it was a huge trend last year and many people used it to achieve a more chiseled and defined look. If you don't know what it is, it is using a product a few shades darker than your skin colour in the low points of your face, such as the hollows of your cheeks and your jawline, and applying a lighter product to the high points of your face. Strobing is really similar to this, except it only requires the highlighting part of this makeup duo.

Strobing focuses on highlighter being applied to the places where the light would naturally hit your face, being your cheekbones, brow bones, forehead, down your nose, cupids bow and chin. By applying soft, shimmery shades in these areas, you can easily create a gorgeous, glowing look that many people are opting for lately. You're probably confused, as you've might never have heard of strobing before but have used this technique in the past. Well that is exactly the case, as it's simply an old idea with a new name for it.

Although this new makeup technique sounds easy, it can definitely be taken to an extreme and requires a lot more attention and time to create a really bold look. As strobing requires a healthy looking base, many people have been opting for a disciplined skincare routine that features a heavier moisturiser, an antioxidant-rich diet and drinking a lot more water. These can all help to maximise the look, but aren't required to create a gorgeous, glowing face.

This technique works best when you have the rest of your makeup subtle, as you want these shimmering parts of your face to be the focal point. I'd recommend sticking to quite a natural makeup look with everything matte, or at least keeping the base free from shimmer so that your strobing can really be impactful and stand out.

To start with, I'd suggest going in with your highlighting products lightly, building them up as you want a more intense look. Dabbing on these shimmery shades can easily make your face look more radiant and fresh, but going overboard can be disastrous. For this reason, I'd also suggest using highlighters that have a fine amount of shimmer, rather than a thick layer of metallic glitter. If you suffer from quite bad blemishes, I wouldn't recommend applying highlighter to these areas, as it can draw attention to them and sometimes make it look worse.

Strobing is great for those minimalists amongst us, as you don't need as much experience or precision as you do with contouring, yet you are left with an equally lovely look. It's also easy to erase any mistakes, as you can blend it into the skin if you feel like you've gone a bit overboard. Your skin won't feel suffocated by heavy amounts of makeup, as you're only using one extra product, and it creates a much lighter, fresher effect.

I hope you liked this post and hopefully I informed you on what this new beauty technique is. Thanks for reading and I'll see you soon with my next post. Until then, I hope you have a nice day.

I thought I'd bring you a summer inspired makeup tutorial today, since you guys seemed to like the one I did about stage makeup. This is a look that I've been wearing quite often and it definitely looks really nice, with the pink eyeshadow being perfect for the season. I hope you like it!

I don't wear foundation, but if I did I'd recommend using something lightweight on your skin. It can be really hot in summer and the last thing you want is a heavy layer of foundation on your skin. Opting for a concealer is what I did, as it will cover any problematic areas but still be brightening on my skin, creating an almost flawless complexion. Whichever you decide on, make sure that you have the right shade and don't pick a dark colour thinking it will give you a tanned look, as this can be achieved more naturally through bronzer.

A common misconception about powders is that they make your face completely matte. This causes people to not use them as they want their makeup to be glowing and dewy. However, this is not always the case as powders are actually really great at setting your makeup into place. This is perfect for summer, when your makeup might travel and transfer because of the heat. It isn't necessary all over the face, but just in the t-zone and anywhere in particular that your skin is prone to oiliness. I love using the Bare Minerals Mineral Veil powder, which does its job really well and has been a staple in my makeup bag.

Since the sun is out, many people have a tan and look more bronzed. If you are feeling a bit pale or haven't got a tan, an easy way to fake it is by using bronzer. I'd recommend choosing one that is matte or has very little shimmer in it, as this will look the most natural and like an actual tan, opposed to just makeup. I'd also say that you should choose one similar to your natural skin tone, like the Maybelline Dream Sun Bronzer, as you can still build it up if you want to, but it won't be too obvious that your tan is fake.

The next step in this makeup routine is blusher, which I think is a lovely way to add a soft glow and hint of colour to your cheeks. Again, I'd recommend something matte, as this looks more natural and you can add some shimmer to it with a highlighter. One that I love using is the MUA Powder Blusher in Lolly, as it is more of a coral shade that I find is really flattering. Apply this to the apples of your cheeks and up towards your temples for a realistic blush that makes your skin look glowing and radiant.

As I mentioned in the previous step, a highlighter can be used on the tops of your cheekbones to add a bit of shimmer and tie together your face makeup. Less is more with this step, as it's easy to go overboard but it will definitely look better if you keep this to a minimum. A favourite of mine is the Benefit Watts Up cream highlighter, as it is a gorgeous colour that really compliments my skin tone. Its formulation also means that it stays in place really well.

I then moved onto eyeshadow, which I decided to do something a bit different with, compared to my usual makeup looks. I opted for more pink-toned eyeshadows, specifically those from the Naked 3 Palette by Urban Decay, as they are all beautiful and scream summer. I wanted this to be a daytime appropriate look, so I kept they eyeshadow quite neutral. I used Burnout all over the lid, with a bit of Limit and Nooner in the crease and Strange in the inner corners and brow bones, as this created a gorgeous, neutral look that is summer appropriate.

I didn't apply any eyeliner for this makeup look and went straight to mascara. I wanted this to be quite dramatic and long, but still suitable for a daytime. I'd advise you to use a waterproof mascara in the summer if you have one, as it will stop it from smudging in the heat. After curling my eyelashes, I went in with the Great Lash Mascara by Maybelline. I find that the tiny brush helps me to be extremely accurate and precise with applying mascara, meaning my eyelashes can be separated and individually coated. I applied 2 coats of this to create the desired look and make my eyelashes bigger.

For lips, I decided to use the Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in the shade Bashful. This is a gorgeous lip product that is really soft and silky on the lips, leaving them feeling moisturised like a lipbalm would. However, it is extremely pigmented and provides an intense wash of colour, which can either be left or blended in for a more subtle look. I really like using this product and the colour is perfect for summer.

I hope you liked seeing what products I've been using this summer to create a lovely makeup look, and if you'd like to know any more about them I have reviewed a number of the products mentioned. Thank you for reading and I'll see you soon with my new post.

I spend a lot of my time reading a selection of blogs, admiring their pretty layouts and sharing their content on social media. I feel like, although I feature them quite a lot on websites like Pinterest and Bloglovin, they deserve to be mentioned on my blog. So here are a few of the many blogs that I love reading, and hopefully you will too.

Lily's blog Pint Sized Beauty is one that I've been reading for a long time now and I've loved it ever since I stumbled upon it. She's definitely gained a lot of popularity over the months, and with that has come an increase in the quality of her writing and photography. Her blog is really clean and professional while still being fun to read and relatable. All of her posts are informative and never fail to motivate me to improve my blog. More recently, she has created a website sharing her photographs, entitled Lily D Photography, which I think is an excellent idea and another side to her that I never knew about. Lily is also a really sweet person and I love talking to her.

Although I'm quite new to Chloe's blog Gloss, Glitz and Glamour, I've absolutely fallen in love with it and really look forward to reading her new posts. I really like her aesthetic, as everything is pink and girly while still looking sleek. I especially enjoy reading her wishlists and favourite posts, with each one persuading me to try out new things. I also love her photographs and creative uses of the camera, as they definitely inspire me to try new ways of photographing products. Chloe's blog is extremely addictive and one that I will always love reading.

When I first started Daisies and Delights, Hayley's blog Tea Party Beauty was the one that I looked up to and would read constantly. Her posts are easy and enjoyable to read, meaning I went through almost all of them as I just couldn't resist. Her blog looks incredibly professional, with everything having a theme and monochrome colour scheme. She posts about a variety of different things, but it's her beauty related posts that I love reading the most. Hayley has also started up an award called the Bloggers Blog Award, which is a fabulous idea and I thoroughly urge you to check it out.

Robyn's blog Oh So Daisy is the place to go to for detailed and informative posts, which are full of helpful tips, important information and little stories to go along with them. All of her posts are extremely truthful and I know that I can trust her opinions and reviews, which is why I visit her blog often. I could honestly sit and read her posts all day, as they're well written and incredibly addictive. I also love how she quite often mentions drugstore products, as these are what I tend to buy more. 

Overall, these blogs are 4 of my favourites at the moment and I always look forward to their new posts. They're all lovely girls and their hard work and dedication is definitely paying off. If you haven't already, I'd highly recommend you check them out. There are so many more blogs that I love reading but haven't mentioned here, so if you'd like to see another one of these posts in the future then let me know!

Micellar waters have rapidly gained popularity over the past couple of years, becoming a staple item in almost all skincare brands. Bioderma kicked off this trend and the beauty community went crazy for it, causing many other companies to create their own. They're well-loved, which is evident as they're even used by makeup artists and models. This micellar water is by Garnier and has received tonnes of positive reviews. Since I've been using it every day in my skincare routine, I thought I'd review it for you.

The difference between micellar waters and regular cleansers is the amazing technology behind it. They contain micellar oil molecules which are an active cleansing ingredient that act as a magnet to impurities. They bind to any oil and dirt molecules that are on the skin and effectively remove them, keeping your skin clean and free from impurities, as well as removing any makeup.

This product comes in a huge 400ml bottle, which I can tell will last me for ages, but probably isn't the most travel-friendly option as it is quite bulky. Although it claims to give you 200 uses, I'm unsure how accurate this is as it depends on how much you use per cleanse. The packaging is sleek and modern, with the bottle and label being transparent with pink accents. The flip-top cap, while being girly and cute, makes it easy to get the product out and stops it from leaking everywhere.

This product is incredibly soothing and refreshing on the skin, being non-irritating and non-drying, even for sensitive skin. It is light and almost moisturising, but people with oily skin don't need to worry about this as it's also non-greasy, making it perfect for people of all skin types. It has no fragrance, is hypoallergenic and isn't tested on animals which are  added bonuses.

Garnier's micellar water isn't at all harsh or irritating on the skin, and can easily remove makeup without the need to rub your face. It's incredibly lightweight on the skin, leaving it smooth and soothed ready for the rest of your skincare routine. It's also great at removing any makeup, with just one swipe making a noticeable difference. There is no need to rinse afterwards, so this is great for quickly taking off your makeup, but being more beneficial than face wipes.

This product, which is supposed to be a substitute for a cleanser, has a primary function of removing skin makeup. I usually use it to take off the top layer of my makeup and then use some more to remove any dirt and oils on my skin. It does this wonderfully, melting away the makeup in a matter of seconds while still being gentle and natural on the skin. Garnier also claim that you can use this to take off eye and lip makeup, making it a multi-purpose product that is really convenient. It does this incredibly well, not stinging my eyes or drying out my lips like other products can do.

Thanks for reading this product review and hopefully you enjoyed hearing about this micellar water in more depth. If you have any requests for products that you'd like me to review then feel free to leave them down below in the comments and I'll try my best to write about them. I'll be back on Wednesday with a new post so I'll see you then.

Hello, everyone! I thought I'd bring you another product review today since I really enjoy writing them and there are plenty of makeup items that I own to write about. Today, it is all about the Bourjois Cream Blushers, particularly in the shade 'rose tender'. This was by far my favourite cheek product when I started blogging and I used it on a daily basis, so I was shocked that I hadn't reviewed it fully. Enough with the rambling, let's get on with the post!

Bourjois are extremely well-known for their cute and classic powder blushers, but I often feel like their beautiful cream blushers don't receive enough recognition or praise. They feature once innovative cream-to-powder technology that is relatively new to makeup, but has proved to be effective. Each pot contains 2.5g's of the product, which might not seem like a lot but it lasts forever in my opinion.

These blushers, much like the infamous powder blushers from Bourjois, are presented within circular, plastic packaging  that I find is really compact but still sturdy. The size makes them perfect for keeping in your makeup bag or for travel and the magnetic closure is both satisfying and ensures that the product is secure within. A mirror is included, which is quite small but is still helpful for touching up your blusher on-the-go. Each compact is colour coordinated to match the shade inside, making the packaging appear sleek, fresh and eye catching.

The range consists of 6 different shades, each one suited to a different skin tone. As I mentioned above, I own this blusher in the shade 'rose tender' which is a cool-toned, dusky pink shade almost the same as my natural blush colour. It has a pearly finish and a nice luminosity, which is partially due to the fine silver flecks it contains, creating a beautiful sheen.

There are a few interesting ingredients that enhance this product, which are new to cream blushers. They are items such as poppy extracts that provide a second-skin, comforting feel, mango butter extracts that leave your skin feeling really soft and apricot extracts that enhance your healthy glow, all of which I feel are effective and work as an advantage to the product.

This product is foolproof and incredibly easy to apply, with a little amount of product going a long way. It has a nice creamy feel to it, which, upon application, instantly turns into a fine powdery finish, that is smooth and even. It isn't at all sticky and sets to a silky, semi-matte finish on the skin. It really melts into the skin and feels luxurious, without being harsh or feeling separated on the surface.

This blusher is an absolute beauty on the skin, especially when it hits the light, as the shimmer gives it a highlighted effect. It looks incredibly glowy and healthy on the skin, yet still being a natural blusher that isn't too bold. It provides a subtle yet gorgeous glow that lasts all day long on the skin, along with quite a dewy appearance.

Like many blushers, this cheek product is quite pigmented, but not too intense, which I find is a good thing for beginners or people wanting a subtle flush. You can build up the colour slowly on your cheeks without going overboard, but can definitely achieve a bolder, more vibrant colour. The blendability is amazing and it effortlessly sinks into the skin, so you can easily erase any mistakes and accidents that you make, another reason why I'd call this a foolproof product.

This product is really long-lasting, which is probably due to the cream-to-powder formula offering great longevity, yet still giving a flattering, skin-like finish once applied. I find that it can last almost all day, some people even claiming it stays put for 8-10 hours, but it does tend to fade slightly, leaving a more natural flush on the cheeks. It has an amazing hold to the skin and great staying power, so touch-ups probably won't be necessary.

Overall, I'd definitely recommend this product, especially as it has earned the accolade of one of my favourite cheek products. At £7.99, it's definitely worth trying out this versatile and extremely useful product that comes in a selection of different shades. It gives a gorgeous, radiant glow to the skin and provides a quick injection of colour and life back into the skin, which is ideal, as well as lasting for ages.

You probably know what this type of post entails by now, but if you're new to my blog then this is a series where I answer popular questions submitted by my readers. It's a great way for you to learn more about me and I really enjoy writing them, hence why this is now the sixth post in the series. Anyway, I'll get on with the answers now, so I hope you enjoy hearing them.

Is this your first attempt at blogging or have you tried it in the past?
I don't think I've mentioned this on my blog before, but a couple of years prior to starting Daisies and Delights (probably around 2012), I created a blog sharing my creations and collages from Polyvore. I can't remember what it was called, but there was next to no writing involved and all the images used weren't my own, so I'd hardly class it as blogging to the level that I do now. Regardless of this, I really enjoyed it but stopped after a few months due to trying a new hobby.

What is one thing that you have enjoyed seeing grow as your blog has become larger?
I've loved watching my writing improve and develop from being awkward and dry to flowing and more professional. I'm not claiming to be an excellent writer now, but I've definitely improved considerably since starting my blog. Although I was oblivious to it at first, I soon noticed that an increase in readers urged me to improve my writing, which I'm really thankful for and I'm definitely glad that I've had the opportunity to do so.

Are there any blogging series' that you do but don't enjoy?
I honestly can't think of any, as I really enjoy writing a lot of my posts, otherwise I wouldn't upload them. However, I do sometimes find writing my monthly favourites a chore, as there's not always a lot to say, especially about products that you've heard lots about before. Aside from this though, I find all of my blog posts interesting and enjoyable to write, and if I wasn't pleased with them I probably wouldn't continue writing them, no matter how popular they were.

What made you want to blog about makeup opposed to any other topic?
When I created my blog, I also spent a lot of time watching beauty gurus on Youtube and reading their own blogs, so I was definitely inspired by them to write about this topic. At the time, it seemed like an easy subject to write about and lots of people loved their videos and posts, so I knew it was popular. It was also around this time that I started properly experimenting with makeup and wanting to wear more than just a bit of concealer and lipgloss, so beauty seemed like a good topic to choose.

Why don't you usually post makeup tutorials if you consider yourself a beauty blogger?
Beauty doesn't just mean makeup tutorials, it's a whole selection of things, so I feel like I can still be a beauty blogger without posting these often. Also, if I'm being honest, I find it incredibly difficult to write and photograph makeup tutorials. I'm much better at reviewing products than writing about them from a tutorial point of view, so these posts often end up being my impressions on the makeup items rather than how to apply them. With photographing the makeup looks, it's incredibly hard to get it to show up well and do the look justice, as my phone camera doesn't always pick up how pretty it actually looks or the intricate details. I'm definitely going to try and post these more often, especially if it's what my readers want.

Is there any type of post that you would like to write about on your blog?
I've been saying this for quite some time now, but I've always wanted to write more lifestyle posts and share things such as holidays, days out and events. I find it really hard to do these things, as I spend most days in school rather than doing crazy, interesting things to blog about, but whenever I do manage to pop up one of these posts they are well received. I'd also like to write more about books, which I post quite often about now but I'd love to share more reviews and opinions on my favourite novels and authors.

Thanks for reading and I hope you liked this post. I'd love to hear some of your answers to these questions, which you can leave down in the comments. Also, feel free to submit any questions and I'll try my best to answer it in an upcoming post.

Summer, for me, is the time of the year when I read the most books. I don't have school, so I instantly have more free time, and one of my favourite ways to spend this is reading. I wrote a post last month which told you about 3 books that I wanted to read over the summer, and it was well-received by my readers. Since there are quite a few more books that I plan on reading this summer, I thought I'd share them with you now.

Charm and Strange by Stephanie Kuehn
Andrew Winston Winters is at war with himself. He’s part Win, the lonely teenager exiled to a remote Vermont boarding school in the wake of a family tragedy. The guy who shuts all his classmates out, no matter the cost. He’s part Drew, the angry young boy with violent impulses that control him. The boy who spent a fateful, long-ago summer with his brother and teenage cousins, only to endure a secret so monstrous it led three children to do the unthinkable. Over the course of one night, Andrew battles both the pain of his past and the isolation of his present. Before the sun rises, he’ll either surrender his sanity to the wild darkness inside his mind or make peace with the most elemental of truths - that choosing to live can mean much more than not dying.
I'm really looking forward to reading this book as it is supposed to be a gripping psychological thriller aimed at young adults. I first heard about this book when Regan from the Youtube channel PeruseProject mentioned it, and since then I've heard lots of good things about it. This book is said to have aspects of fantasy and mystery within it, which I'm really excited for and can't wait to see if it portrayed well. There are only about 250 pages in this book so it'll probably be a really quick read, but I'm looking forward to it none the less.

Reason to Breathe by Rebecca Donovan
"No one tried to get involved with me, and I kept to myself. This was the place where everything was supposed to be safe and easy. How could Evan Mathews unravel my constant universe in just one day?" In the affluent town of Weslyn, Connecticut, where most people worry about what to be seen in and who to be seen with, Emma Thomas would rather not be seen at all. She’s more concerned with feigning perfection while pulling down her sleeves to conceal the bruises - not wanting anyone to know how far from perfect her life truly is. Without expecting it, she finds love. It challenges her to recognize her own worth - but at the risk of revealing the terrible secret she’s desperate to hide.
This book was sitting on the shelves of my local library for months, and I often picked it up and considered borrowing it. It wasn't until a few weeks ago that I properly read the blurb and decided that I wanted to read it over the summer. The novel is about the different struggles that Emma Thomas goes through during her teenage life, and also the hope and optimism she has for the future, which I am looking forward to reading. It is supposed to be really powerful and a lot more emotional than those I usually read, but the concept and plot-line sounded too intriguing to leave behind.

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
The place: a small town in the south of the United States. The time: the early 20th century. A black man is accused of raping a woman, and an idealistic lawyer gets to defend him. We start watching the reasons that make his defense far from easy; and that's mostly because nobody in this town seems determined to believe in the guiltlessness of an accused negro.
I don't usually read classic novels, although this is definitely something that I'd like to change, but To Kill a Mockingbird is on the syllabus for my English Literature and Language GCSE's. As a class, we read this earlier on in the year, but I really want to revisit it over the summer. This is a very powerful novel set in the early 30s, focusing heavily on the prejudice and racial inequality in the town of Maycomb. Despite being a bit skeptical and unsure about it when I first started it, this has grown to be a book that I really love and will read often.

I hope you enjoyed hearing what books I'll be reading this summer, and if you have any more recommendations or suggestions then I'd love to know what they are. If you've read one of the books mentioned here and want to share your opinions, without spoilers of course, then make sure you let me know. Thanks for reading and I'll see you soon with a new post.

Images from Goodreads, edited by me.
If you aren't already aware, I love dancing, singing and acting and I attend a part-time academy where I do just that. It was our biannual show on Wednesday at a local theatre, which I thoroughly enjoyed and went extremely well. As I did my own stage makeup, I thought I'd share with you the look I created and what products I used to achieve it, which might be helpful for those of you who are performers or into musical theatre.

The first step in my makeup routine was concealer. For this look I wanted my face to look as close to flawless as possible, so using a lot of the product was necessary. A heavy-duty, highly pigmented concealer worked best for this, so I opted for the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. I've mentioned this on many occasions, so I won't ramble on about it, but it's a great concealer that was crucial to this makeup look. I applied it all over my face, particularly focusing on more problematic areas, and buffed it in using the Real Techniques Buffing Brush.

I set my makeup into place with a powder, my choice being the Mineral Veil by Bare Minerals. I did this for a few reasons, the first one being that I wanted my makeup to stay in place during the show, as doing a lot of dances and scenes would cause me to get warm and my makeup would slowly deteriorate. The second reason why I applied a powder is because I didn't want my skin to look incredibly shiny or oily with the harsh stage lights shining on it, so this helped to mattify it a bit.

The next step to my makeup routine was adding some colour and dimension into the face. The bright lights on stage have a tendency to flatten the face and wash you out, so this is definitely an important step. I used the Maybelline Dream Sun to bronze up my face, as it's a product that I really love and I know that it doesn't make me look dark and muddy. I lightly contoured my cheekbones using the Sleek Face Form Contour Kit to add more dimension and used the Benefit Watts Up Highlighter on the tops of my cheekbones, as cream products last better than powders.I also wanted to add a bit of blusher before moving on to my eyes, so I used the Bare Minerals Powder Blusher in Beauty, as this is a really bold yet buildable colour.

For this particular show, we were told not to wear any eyeshadow, so I skipped straight to eyeliner. This has to be worn carefully, as the right amount can help your eyes stand out and be bold, but applying too much can make them look narrow and squinted. I used a brown MUA eyeliner rather than a black as it doesn't look too harsh but still provides some definition. I used this just on my upper lash line and smudged it out so that it wasn't too dark. I also used the nude Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner on my waterline to open them up and make my eyes look wider on stage.

For this look, I wanted my eyelashes to be a lot longer and more voluminous than usual, so I opted for the Benefit They're Real Mascara. I've had this for quite some time and definitely don't use it enough, but I knew it was ideal for the stage. I applied quite a few coats of this on both my top and bottom lashes to achieve volume, separation and length, as well as curling them for added drama. It also has a waterproof formula, so I didn't need to worry about it smudging throughout the show.

To complete my makeup, I applied a bright red lipstick that I bought from MUA. I never usually wear something this bold or vibrant, but for a show it is vital. I started by applying it lightly on my lips, patting it in with my finger, before forming an intense line of colour. This lipstick is incredibly matte, so I'd recommend exfoliating your lips beforehand, but it looks lovely when applied and was the perfect finishing touch to this look.
It feels like it's been a while since my previous monthly favourites post, which is because a lot of the products I'd been loving recently are either old items that you've heard about hundreds of times or have been mentioned in other favourites posts. However, I have a few new products to share with you that I've loved using this month, along with a website favourite at the end that I thought I'd include, so I hope you like this post.

I've raved about the Maybelline Dream Sun Bronzer and Blusher on my blog for the past few months, but I was surprised to discover that it had never been mentioned in a favourites post. The bronzer adds a subtle wash of colour, creating a healthy glow, and the blusher is a beautiful, vibrant pink that is quite natural but still a really pretty colour. I use this on a daily basis, as it's incredibly easy to apply and looks nice on my skin. If you'd like to know more about this product, you can find my review of it here.

The Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze is a makeup item that I've had for quite some time, and this month I've been using it more frequently. I used to be a bit afraid of this at times, as I thought it would give a harsh wash of colour all over the lids, but I've realised how beautiful it looks when just a bit is applied and blended out. It's such a lovely way to wear a bit of colour on the lid without being too bold or over the top, so it's great for those of you just getting into makeup. I reviewed this a long time ago (so it might not be my best post) which you can find here.

A lip product that I've fallen in love with this month is the Clinique Chubby Stick Baby Tint in the shade Poppin' Poppy. This is a beautiful coral colour that is perfect for spring and summer. It is really moisturising and is similar to a lip balm, except it still has a decent amount of colour. This feels comfortable and silky on the lips and lasts for quite a while. I'll be testing this over the next few weeks ready to review it, so be prepared to hear more about this product.

A makeup tool that I've found incredibly useful this month is eyelash curlers. I used to apply mascara without curling my eyelashes and found that, after a while, they would be almost straight and didn't retain a curl. Now, my eyelashes stay curled for ages and I've found that my mascara can look more dramatic. I've also been using these on days when I don't wear mascara, just to open up my eyes and make my eyelashes appear longer.

I switch up the body sprays that I use often, as I own quite a few and I enjoy wearing different scents. Recently, I've been wearing the Ted Baker body spray (it doesn't say its actual name on the bottle) on a regular basis. It has a gorgeous scent that lingers throughout the day and is really pleasant. The bottle is quite small, perfect for travelling, and the product is made from natural ingredients such as bergamot, red fruit, tuberose and patchouli.

Thank you for reading this post and I hope you liked hearing what my different favourites are. I'd love to know what items you've been loving, or if you also enjoy using any of the things mentioned above, so make sure you let me know down in the comments. I'll be back on Sunday with a new post, so I'll see you then!
