The month has been short and sweet and full of shopping excursions so decision was tough but the result is a fine-tuned and highly recommended selection of beauty heroines.

February 26, 2015

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 preset

As someone who invests a lot of time, money, and research into sourcing good skincare, when I come to apply my makeup I can’t help but feel that I’m somewhat revoking the effects and benefits of those top of the range serums and detoxifying masks. If blessed with a naturally clear complexion I would more than happily […]

5 WAYS TO ADD VOLUME

February 24, 2015

Whilst I would love to contentedly spend every morning curling/straightening/styling my hair into nothing short of an art form, most days I find myself devoid of both the time and the patience to attempt anything more complex than a messy bun or quick braid. Regardless of time however, when it comes to my hair there has always been […]

February 22, 2015

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 preset

My first week off in forever has been spent cosied up in a supersize sixteenth-century farmhouse with some of my favourite people in the world [and I wouldn’t have had it any other way]. Our days were spent indulging in long country walks beneath bright blue skies, and exploring castles and stately homes before tumbling into […]

HANDBAG BEAUTY

February 21, 2015

The true test of a beauty product lies in whether it makes it into the inner sanctum that is my handbag [currently [and pictured] the Whistles Harrington Roll-Top Clutch]. Whilst for the body balms and hair pomades of the world, this is a sadly unachievable feat, the lipsticks, powders, hand creams, and body sprays compete for a place […]

February 19, 2015

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 preset

When indecision clouds such commonplace a task as my daily makeup application, there are a number of tried and tested product duos which I rely upon to provide a failsafe starting point to my look. Whilst these combinations are by no means exclusive, time has revealed certain pieces which when paired, serve to compliment and enhance each other, as well as add an element of composition […]

We’ve covered lips and eyes, so the today I’m signing off the holy trinity of makeup with a cheat-sheet which is all about that base [sorry, not sorry]. 3-STEP DEWY SKIN : Nars Sheer Glow Foundation + Nars Illuminator in Super Orgasm* + Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder.

February 15, 2015

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

The emotive title of today’s edition of WEEKEND RITUAL may have coincided with Valentine’s Day weekend, but fear not, things are not getting soppy on TGG; for I’m talking today of love and lust of the material kind. I’m a woman of many lists, and have somehow managed to accumulate multiple wishlists on multiple list-making apps over the years. Friday saw me commit to a big big sort out and […]

My hunt for the perfect brow product has been well documented on this blog; it veers from pencils to pomades and from powders to gels. The hunt is finally over though [and what a relief that is], for in the recent addition of the SUQQU Balancing Brow Palette to my makeup bag, I have hit eyebrow gold. […]

February 12, 2015

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 preset

As previously stated in last month’s ‘10 Under £10 : Makeup‘ post, when it comes to feeding my beauty obsession, my picks tend to originate from luxe sources. Regarding skincare especially, my mantra of ‘quality over quantity’ is applied with little regard to financial regulation. My skin is fussy, and I’m a big believer in investing in skincare. Better skincare equates to […]
