July 2018 lookfantastic Beauty Box Unboxing

It’s time for the July lookfantastic Beauty Box! This month it’s time to get our glow on ready for the summer sun!

This is a lovely little box from lookfantastic with some real high end treats waiting inside. I don’t want to say too much, but I was particularly pleased to see a skincare favourite waiting inside the classy black and gold box for me this month. I was also really pleased to see a haircare hero that I haven’t used in so many years too.

I cant say that this box is my favourite ever over the months, but quality definitely outweighs quantity this month and I’m not mad about it at all.

I hope that you enjoy watching my lookfantastic Beauty Box unboxing video! Don’t forget to hit the subscribe button if you’re new and to leave me a nice big thumbs up so I know that you’re enjoying my content.

See you all soon my beauties!

My Accutane update: 7 months on

As you may know if you’ve read my blog for a little while or followed me over on YouTube, last year I was taking Accutane (or to call it its full name, Roacctuane or Isotretinoin). I stopped taking the drug back in December, just before Christmas, and the results have been outstanding.

I’d been plagued by acne for many years before taking the drug, but within months, my skin was once again looking very clear.

I finally finished my course just in time for the Christmas break which I was so pleased about seen as some of the side effects were pretty rough and I was so ready to be done with it.

I was very anxious about how the next few months would pan out and panicked massively thinking that I’d wake up one morning to find my acne had come back. I’m so pleased to say that here I am just over 7 months on and my skin is completely clear.

I have only had a grand total of two spots since finishing my course of Accutane, and they went away in double quick time!

My skin confidence has risen over the last year or so and now I frequently head off to work without any foundation or concealer at all. It’s given me a new lease of life that I’m extremely grateful for.

I still worry about the future and worry that my acne will someday return, but for now, I’m really enjoying having clear skin and the confidence that it’s bringing me.

Beautiful Bridal Makeovers at Wentbridge House for Sian

Yesterday I had the absolute pleasure of applying the bridal makeup for the lovely Sian and her bridal party. Held at the gorgeous Wentbridge House in Pontefract, Sian would be having an outdoor wedding on the lovely lawns.

Myself and my assistant (my lovely Mum!) arrived early to set up and were welcomed into a lovely double room with plenty of space and natural lighting – the perfect combination for flawless bridal makeup application!

I met the gorgeous mother of the bride who was absolutely lovely, along with the bridesmaids and the cutest little flower girls.

We sailed through the makeovers and finished well ahead of time. I always love to involve the children in makeovers on the day with a tiny slick of a clear shimmery lipgloss (and pretend blusher) to make them feel a little more special and part of the morning too. It was a lovely moment of the morning and the little girls loved their pamper!

I had a lovely time with the gorgeous wedding party and was even treated to a tour of the wedding room afterwards by the mother of the bride. She showed me and mum the gorgeous wedding cake that she had made for her daughter’s special day and let me tell you, it was stunning!
