how often do you skip on doing a more elaborate makeup look because you only have 10 minutes to get out of the house?
I did my makeup and skincare in 11 minutes this morning, so I had to show you these quick and easy steps. fresh skin, mostly finger painting, a swipe of glitter and multi-tasking products. Bob’s your uncle!

Autumn is here, with its sudden weather changes (oh, having to carry a coat all day, sweating profusely, because you know you’ll desperately need it at the end of the day), and our skin takes a toll.
today I’m focusing on products that you can amp up during this time (despite some being year-round favourites), because darker days come in favour of more intense resurfacing skincare (you still have to use SPF, no cheating) and because your skin is going to need your help to boost the hydration levels under harsh air conditioning and brittle cold wind.

if you’re like me and you don’t like to leave the house without your precious skincare and makeup, but also feel ridiculous by checking in your bag for a 3-day trip just because of the liquids-security issue, this video may just come in handy.

Here’s another unboxing for you. This one had me wondering about what happened this month and, when I went to do the maths… I got even more suspicious… I talked about it on my Insta Stories, also.

My honest thoughts on a very hyped product.
Spoiler: it is worth it, but you have to consult your budget.
You can find this product on CultBeauty and Look Fantastic, as well as in your local drugstore, if you’re in the U.K. or the U.S.
I’ve never done one of these before… How did I go?
Aside from the spinach and lipstick on my teeth, I mean.
oh, you have to go and watch again because you couldn’t stop staring? ok, I’ll wait…
I’ll just leave you here a list of the products mentioned.

magic in a bottle, a can that mists you with an invisible shield that protects you from the harmful rays of sun, that can be easily reapplied throughout the day without disturbing your makeup. but which one to go for?
I’ve tried them both. here are my thoughts.
UPDATE: My sister has atopic skin and had an allergic reaction to the La Roche Posay mist. So if you’re very sensitive, I would stay away from this one, sadly.
Bioderma Hydrabio Moisturising anti-UV mist, SPF 30
La Roche-Posay Anthelios Invisible Face Mist SPF 50
The Clinique Take The Day Off Balm is a highly rated cleansing balm and it is frequently mentioned by Caroline Hirons (my skincare guru) as a great first cleanser.
I had to give it a good go and compare it to my all-time favourite makeup removing cleansers from The Body Shop Chamomile range.
Here are my thoughts on all of these terrific products.
Where to buy?
Clinique is available in beauty stores and departments worldwide, and you can also find it through some online retailers like Feelunique, and U.S. Sephora.
The Body Shop is widely available in almost every country, so you can look for their shops and website on your location (many have an online shop). Here are the U.K. website links for the butter and the oil.
