July Favourites

July Favourites - MAC Strobe Cream, Loreal True Match Foundation, NYX Lid Lingerie, Charlotte Tilbury Champagne Diamonds

Hi Beauties! Can you believe it's the end of July already?! This year is going SO fast! July was a really good month for me; Chris and I moved in together and it was my birthday a few days ago so we had such a fab weekend celebrating with family and friends. I haven't done a monthly favourites post for a little while as I tend to gravitate towards the same products all of the time and they don't often change too much. However this month I had quite a few makeup favourites so thought I'd share them with you today!

Charlotte Tilbury Sexy Sienna Lipstick

Charlotte Tilbury Sexy Sienna Lipstick Review

Hey beauties! I wasn't going to do a blog post on this lipstick as I've had it for a little while now, but the main reason I never wrote a review is because I took all the pictures and I didn't like any of them when I started editing them. By then I had used it for swatches etc and it looked all smudged and used so I didn't take any more pictures as I always try and keep everything pristine until I've taken pictures for the blog. I then realised that that was literally the most stupid reason not to feature it on here and still write the review! (P.S. Totally not happy with these pictures either... hazy much?!)

How I Beat Adult Acne

How I Got Rid of Adult Acne

In the past I was quite lucky with my skin; as a teenager I never really suffered with spots or greasy skin, even though I would get the odd pimple I never had anything too traumatic. When I passed my teenage years and went into my early twenties, my skin pretty much stayed the same and I thought, "I must be one of those people who is just really lucky, right?!". WRONG. As if by magic at around the age of 24/25 my skin must have thought 'come on let's mix it up a bit' and what happened was probably one of the most horrible and confidence shaking things that has happened to me. My skin started to develop tons of pimples, spots and horrific cystic acne. And yes I know there are worst things to happen to people, but for me I was already going through a really difficult time and then with the acne on top, it really made me feel at rock bottom. 

Anyway the good news is is that a couple of years later, I now have clear skin again. Even though I get the odd breakout, the improvement in my skin is so much better and I even go out without makeup on now (something I would NEVER do when I had acne). I thought it might be helpful to share some tips I followed to get rid of my adult acne (including my number one secret weapon that I found banished my acne for good - scroll to the bottom if you just want to jump straight to it).

DISCLAIMER: I cannot guarantee that these will work for you, and if you are really suffering it would probably be worth consulting with a doctor or a dermatologist. ANOTHER DISCLAIMER: This is a really long post so you might want to grab a cup of tea.
