Top Tanning Tips & Tricks Tried and tested products and methods to fake a natural looking glow!

Ahhh, the Summer is pretty much here, to the glee of all Brits.

Watch and enjoy and let me know if you give this look a try!

Review: Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette This product will rock your brush cleaning world!

Cleaning make up brushes has got to be one of the most dull beauty-related chores ever! Until now my poor hands have been my “cleansing palette”, resulting in wrinkly, red, irritated palms. Boo. So when I saw that Real Techniques were bringing out an affordable alternative to the SIGMA SPA® BRUSH CLEANING MAT (which is priced at £32), I couldn’t wait to give it a whirl!
