that lisa eldridge pinpoint concealing

Concealer is always a good friend. It took me a long time to realize that full coverage foundation was not the answer to covering up spotty skin and uneven pigmentation. After learning that lighter bases paired with full coverage concealer is the way to go, it took me a lot of tries before finally getting to grips with the Lisa Eldridge technique of pinpoint concealing.

stop telling me i look tired.

I feel like I should retitle this as 'stop telling me I look mean' - I mean, I look fierce in this photo and that was definitely not the intention. But yeah, I'm sure there are a lot of you that are in the same situation as me - wishing you had a second brain, not enough sleep, and having a love/hate relationship with coffee. I'm always irked when people tell me that I 'look tired', I know it's usually out of concern, but it's like, I know I'm tired, I'm trying to compose myself and not fall asleep in public - stop reminding me how sleep deprived I am.

3. Pretending to be Royals with my favourite people at the Royal Ascot
4. Spending a week in Sardinia with my favourite people and having a private pool all to ourselves.

One of the best things about blogging is that you get to make equally socially awkward friends from around the world. Blogging from Behind the Frames, Sheri and I have a torrent love affair that withstands the distance between us. We decided to join forces and show you guys our best beauty finds of 2015 - there's also the high-end edition over on Sheri's blog that you can find here

So enough of that, let's get onto the products, shall we?

april favourites 2015.

This month is almost colour themed! Darn that bottle of perfume for not being a shade of coral. But April was a month that was equally relaxed and stressed - I'm glad to have had a short break away from London and a good amount of gorgeous sunny days even when I came back. But alas, break isn't without work and my desk and the floor around it is already buried in papers that I've stacked up for exam revision...but enough with that, let's get to the main point of this post and talk about makeup.
