Trixie Cosmetics Breakup Palette

“I absolutely love a dramatic eye look and the breakup palette by Trixie Cosmetics ticks all the boxes for me. The colours are deeply pigmented and last for hours, great for a night out. It has the perfect combination of matte and sparkles. The palette also contains warm reds and a lovely peach colour that could be used to create the perfect blush tone too! Highly recommend.”

By BEAUTY BAY Nude 42 Colour Palette

“As a bit of an eyeshadow novice I tend to go for more subtle palettes, and the Nudes 42 colour palette is just perrrrfect. With so many shades to choose from I know I’ll get year-round use out of this one! It has so many lovely autumn shades, as well as warm summer tones for that bronzed look. The pans are so pigmented and the formula so soft that it’s so easy to blend – again great for the novice that I am! This palette should be a staple in everyone’s makeup bag.”

Higher Education Skincare Double Major Hyaluronic Acid Gel Moisturiser

“I have acne-prone skin so I’ve always preferred the texture of a gel moisturiser to heavy-duty thick creams. As well as feeling lighter on skin, their water-based formulas are cooling, soothing, and far less likely to cause issues if your skin is prone to breakouts and oiliness. The issue is that they’re not always as powerful as my dehydrated skin needs. Higher Education Skincare’s Double Major Hyaluronic Acid Gel Moisturiser ticks all of the boxes for me. The star ingredient is hyaluronic acid (which works by drawing moisture into the skin) and it’s supported by other hardworking hydrators like glycerin, squalane, and polyglutamic acid. If your skin is sensitive, acne-prone, and oily (but also dehydrated!), you’ll love this.”

The Beauty Crop Vitamin Babe Hydrating Dual Phase Mist

“When we launched The Beauty Crop, this setting mist was at the very top of my list to try. If you’re like me and can’t leave the house (in a full face) without a setting spray, then you neeeed to try this one. It smells unreal (like cherries), is super hydrating, and makes my skin just look super dewy, fresh and radiant.”

Ashleigh, Content Executive

Florence By Mills Mane Character Vibes Hydrating Hair Mask

“Hair in need of some TLC? Then you need the Mane Character Vibes Hydrating Hair Mask from florence by mills. As someone with a very minimal approach to haircare and a close-knit relationship with my straighteners, you can probably guess that my hair isn’t in the best condition. I have very fine, fly-away hair that is dry at the ends, greasy at the roots and seems to frizz up at the first sign of humidity, basically a nightmare when you live in a city where it rains 75% of the year. I have perhaps come one step closer to solving my hair dilemas with the discovery of this hair mask however. It left my hair shiny, soft and hydrated and even managed to curtail the frizz during a day out in the drizzle – a hair miracle! No doubt I’ll be stocking up again soon – thank you florence by mills!”

Moon Juice Cosmic Cream Dewy Moisturiser

“Now it’s getting colder I’ve been on the hunt for a nourishing Moisturiser, so couldn’t resist trying Moon Juice’s Cosmic Cream Moisturiser. I absolutely love it!! It’s such a luxurious formula that makes my skin feel super dewy and soft. The packaging is really cute and I’m obsessed with the brands aesthetic. It has me hooked on Moon Juice I can’t wait to get more of the range!”

Alex, Supply Planning Manager

Made By Mitchell Blursh Liquid Blusher

“The two things I look for in a liquid blush is colour payoff and blendability – the Made By Mitchell Blursh Liquid Blusher has both of those things and so much more. In a stunning bright pink shade ‘Posy Rosey’, the product glides on like a dream and melts into the skin, creating a flawless flush of colour perfect in achieving a cosy autumnal look.”

Sophie, Shoot Producer

Silke London Heatless Curler

“Heatless curls are 100% my new favourite hair hack and the Silke London set makes it so easy to do. I sprayed my hair with the Cantu Hydrating Leave-in Mist to make it slightly damp, then simply wrapped my hair around the silk curler in sections and secured with the silk scrunchies. I was a little worried it would be a nuisance to sleep in but I didn’t notice it at all! I removed the scrunchies and curler the following morning, gave it a quick brush through and had gorgeous curls, all with minimal effort.”

Chloe, Marketing Manager

Solawave Advanced Skincare Wand With Red Light Therapy

“I have loved adding the Solawave Red Light Therapy wand into my nighttime skincare routine. It’s so relaxing to use and has a soothing warm sensation, I use it with a serum and glide the wand across my whole face. I have noticed my skin looks a lot more even and the puffiness around my eyes has definitely gone down! I would recommend adding this tool into your routine for a mini at-home facial when you’re in need of some self care!”

Hannah, Influencer and PR Assistant

Beauty Works Waver

“For this look I used Beauty Works’ 21mm waver, I love it because it is SO easy to use, doesn’t take long at all and the wave effect lasted days. I use it in a morning when my hair is in need of a quick fix but I still want to look stylish. Beachy waves aren’t just for summer.”
