My Week in Instagram Pics

Well, since my last revisit to my Instagram thread, I was hoping to get a few other blog posts written but I haven’t had time!!  However, I promise I have some proper posts coming this week!!  This hasn’t just turned into an Instagram blog I promise!!

So last week on Instagram…

Pixi & Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse

Day 21 of the #cultbeautyskincarechallenge is ‘travel buddy’. I’ve just been away to Cornwall for a long weekend and this travel buddy was perfect! @pixibeauty & @carolinehironsDouble Cleanse saves me taking multiple cleansers away just for a few days! Perfect! Have you tried this yet? What would your travel buddy be? 💕

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette

This has to be my favourite product in 2017! It’s by far the best eyeshadow palette I’ve ever used, super pigmented yet easily blendable.
I’m voting for this as the best product of 2017 on Influenster …. you can have your say and unlock your badge on @influensterwebsite!


Check out my post!  Not Empties Post …. part 2!

Day 22 of the #cultbeautyskincarechallenge is #carolinehironsmademedoit which I think is one of the best hashtags! 😂. @carolinehirons blogs, vlogs and cheat sheets have changed my skin. Generally her ’empties’ videos translate in my brain as ‘add this to your shopping list…oh and this…’ 😂😂
These are the current products I’m using (not all in one routine obvs!) but yes Mrs Hirons made me do it! (some were in the @cultbeauty box):

💕 @emmahardieskincare Amazing Face Cleansing Balm 💕 @drdennisgross Alpha Beta peel 💕 @tataharperskincareRestorative eye creme 💕 @pixibeauty & @carolinehirons Double Cleanse 💕 @clinique TTDO Balm 💕 @thebodyshopSPF50 💕 @januarylabs moisture balancing lotion 💕 @indie_lee CoQ10 toner 💕 @zelensskincare Power D 💕 @oskiaskincare Renaissance cleansing gel 💕 @pixibeauty Glow Tonic 💕 @larocheposay  


Day off work but got loads to do …… so I play with makeup! I don’t usually post a full selfie on here without makeup products in a split screen but I quite liked this one 😂😂 Products used: 💕 @hourglasscosmetics primer 💕 @narsissist Sheerglow 💕 @rcmamakeupNo Colour Powder 💕 @diormakeupDiorblush contour and highlight 💕 @makeupforeverofficial HD concealer💕 @maccosmetics Soft & Gentle 💕 @maccosmetics Bronzer 💕 @katvondbeauty Liquid lipstick in ‘Beloved’ 💕 @thebalm_cosmetics Frat Boy 💕 @clinique High Impact Mascara 💕 @benefitcosmetics Gimmebrow 💕 @urbandecaycosmetics Full Spectrum Palette & Razor Sharp Eyeliner


Day 23 of #cultbeautyskincarechallenge is ‘coolest packaging. I think the NIOD set is pretty cool. It came in a really sturdy box that is a draw. I keep the bottles with my other skincare etc but I use the draw for my beautyblenders, sponges and powder puffs 👌
What do you think?  (Check this out as a boomerang on Instagram!)


Throwback Thursday! This was 4 years ago! Taken by @fredricfrennessen …. check out his Instagram to see his more recent photos!!


Day 24 of the #cultbeautyskincarechallenge is ‘Instant Results’ and I could easily use a lot of products that I’ve already posted for this challenge. @alphahskincare Liquid Gold is one product that I don’t use every night or even every other night but when I do use it…I apply at night and don’t follow with anything else. The next morning my skin feels amazing! Have you ever used this?    I also wrote a blog post on this not long after I started using it!  Check it out here:    Alpha-H Liquid Gold


Thank you @kirakirastudio_tokyo for sending this for me to try…..a brand new to the U.K. AHA cleanser thats said to remove makeup and is free from nasties. Can’t wait to try this tonight 😋

Facetune 5

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Beauty Light and Contour Wands

My new @ctilburymakeup Hollywood Contour and Beauty Light wands! I am strictly speaking on a makeup buying ban til I go to New York in October but in my defence, I had a credit to use up and these have been on my wishlist since I saw they were being launched!! Hopefully I’ll get time to check them out tomorrow! Have you tried these?


Day 27 of the #cultbeautyskincarechallenge is ‘Makeup remover’ I’d say the @clinique Take The Day Off Balm is definitely the best. Doesn’t irritate my eyes even when I need to remove full on comp makeup. Removes it easily and is gentle on my skin. I always follow this with a second cleanse to clean my skin after the makeup has been removed. What do you use?


I was given this sample size @diormakeup Lip Maximizer at the counter and I love it! It’s a cute lipgloss that looks great on its own, under or over lipstick. You can feel it tingle on your lips when you apply it and I do think it gives just a subtle boost. Have you tried it? I think I’ll be buying the full size once I’ve used this!

So that’s it for Instagram this week, coming up on the blog this week will be tips for contouring and the products I love using for it, a product review and also a little update on dancing with another competition looming!!

    My fave here are the Alpha H Liquid Gold. Used it last night actually. Definitely a must have. Love to try the Pixi double cleanse. I’ve yet to try the Pixi products, I’m thinking I might add a few to my Christmas list 😋 I know I always say it but your Instagram is so inspirational for new product ideas. Don’t stop! Xx
