Topical Tuesday: Body Shaming

These are just my opinions I don't mean to cause offence to anyone if I accidently do.

Body Shaming happens a lot in the media and online. In today's current society we are constantly judged on our weight. The media especially seem to forget that people have feelings. When you make a comment about someones body you have no idea how that will make them feel. We are constantly bombarded with what the 'perfect' body looks like but is there really a 'perfect' body? I think not. What is important is the person is happy and healthy. Who cares if you have a few lumps and bumps? Or weather you don't have any curves? Apparently society and others do, which in my opinion is totally wrong.

Body shaming is others making negative or inappropriate comments about your body e.g weight. Others tend to make these comments as they think it's 'helpful' or the person is unaware of what they look like. But who are the people that actually body shame? Is it men body …

LIQC Serum Light Texture review

I was kindly sent this product to review from LIQC. I have never tried a serum before so I was intrigued to try this one. To see how it works on my skin and to see if my skin looks better. Another bonus is the the packaging is pink, which is my favourite colour. I was asked which serum was best for my skin. I picked normal/combination. As my skin has dry patches but my t zone can get especially oily. The brand doesn't test on animals.

Topical Tuesday: "You wear too much makeup"

This post is going to be a long one so grab yourself a cuppa and be prepared for a ramble of my opinions.

Makeup has revolutionised over the years. There are so many different formulas and new shades always coming out. Whatever your budget or makeup preference there is products to suit that. People think that those who wear makeup do it to look better and whilst this is true. There is much more to it than that. Makeup allows you to show off your creativity, it makes you feel good about yourself and you feel ready for the day. Makeup is now just an extended representation of you just like your clothes are. With makeup being so common and popular, people still feel the need to judge others who wear it. But why do they do this? What makes it acceptable for someone to comment negatively on someone else's makeup?  In my opinion if you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all.
From doing research and just generally reading comments online. Girls who wear a …

Leon Hardy: Crystal makeup brushes review

I was kindly sent these makeup brushes to review from Total Partners I love makeup brushes and trying new brushes out as they really do make a difference to the way your makeup applies. I was really happy when the parcel arrived and I opened it. As these brushes are stunning. I love the crystals and how girly they look.
The brushes don't have names on where to use them on the face. But these brushes can be used in a variety of different ways. I will be reviewing these brushes from Left to Right
1st Brush This is one of my favourite brushes to use as it's so soft and can be used in a variety of different ways. I mainly use this brush to apply blush or to wipe away any excess powder from my face when I 'bake' my face. This brush can also be used to apply: powder and bronzer.
2nd Brush I really like this brush for applying cream eyeshadow as it packs the colour on your eyelid. Cream eyeshadow can be annoying to apply with your fingers if you have long nails. So this brush is …

My Makeup Story tag

When Paige tagged me to do this tag I was really interested in doing it. As I'm obsessed (obviously) with makeup. I just love everything about it. When I'm not wearing makeup no doubt I'm blogging or talking about it. The questions in this tag really makes me think of how far my makeup 'journey' has come. Gone are the days of having an orange face with concealer lips (unless you are into that sort of look). That has now been replaced with the correct shade of foundation and the right nude lipstick.
The 14 year olds now never have to go through the orange face with the blue eyeshadow phrase.
How old were you when you first started wearing makeup? I think I was 13? I started wearing makeup when I started secondary school (year 7). It wasn't a lot of makeup at all. Infact I only used Collection pressed powder in the shade '24 Misty Beige'.... Yes I can still remember that as I was really pale and that powder on me made me look orange. I used to apply it wi…
