An Honest Beauty Regime by an Ex-Beauty Blogger

It’s been about two years now since it became clear that I was definitely no longer a beauty blogger and I haven’t even posted a selfie since October 2016. I never wanted to fit neatly into one blog category, beauty was just something that I got so involved with that meant it only seemed natural to focus on it for a period of time. In fact, in reality, I never really wanted to be a blogger, funny how things pan out.

Now I’m no longer working exclusively with beauty brands in my personal or professional life, things are different and a lot has changed, I’m also re-learning who I am as being a beauty blogger became such a huge part of my identity and it wasn’t healthy for me personally. I don’t attend blogger events anymore and I don’t receive endless supplies of free products, things in my beauty world have changed a lot! I do still love beauty, but my priorities and circumstances have changed. I’ve had a complete overhaul of my regime as I can no longer afford to buy some of the luxury products I was accustomed to trying for free and I have so much make-up now that I don’t feel like spending my precious spare income on yet more make-up, when I’ve got much bigger plans in my head and other things give me more joy these days than a new lipstick.

Alice in Wonderland Through the Looking Glass x Urban Decay Make Up Collection

Make up and film collaborations are 100% the theme of my week, but I ain’t complaining when it’s something that combines two of my biggest geekdoms. Yes, it’s all part of a bigger marketing ploy each company using the other to boost awareness, create a story and ultimately persuade us into parting with our hard earnt cash. However, when the result is something this pretty you can’t really complain. This is the second Alice in Wonderland collection from Urban Decay and once again they’ve gone full on with it.

MAC x Good Luck Trolls Make Up Collection

Hello blog-reading folks, it’s been a while and this little collection sneak peek is what caught my attention enough to blog. Many of you will know that historically I’m not a massive MAC fangirl normally and have generally been disappointed by some of their limited edition collection as it’s often just repackaged colours or so limited edition that it’s basically impossible to get hold of. The latest news is about a rather retro, nostalgic collaboration with Trolls, which looks pretty special.
