Beauty

I have a straight up Make Up Addiction. My friends call me ‘Make Up Mary’. I scroll through Feel Unique daily, frequent Sephora’s all over the world + own far too much of it all. I’m into budget friendly (drugstore) and luxury brands. Holiday Palettes + Wispy Lashes are my weakness! I also post seasonal Hair transitions + document my Manicures (usually Monday!)

Beauty Shopping in Paris

It’s no secret that I have a love for all things beauty. My bathroom is like a worldwide pharmacy and my first phrase when I step off the plane in the US is ‘Can we go to Walgreens?’ I can’t help it.

Naturally the world went…

US Beauty MUSTS: Sephora, Ulta + Drugstore

I used to literally get off the plane and run for Sephora. I always had a huge list of things I couldn’t get in the UK – until recently. Since my trip to LA last year,…

Current Skincare I’m Enjoying

My skin has been looking and feeling great recently and it’s down to a few bits I’ve added to or swapped in my skincare routine. I’m still using the old favourites like Bioderma Sensibio H2O, Pixi Glow Tonic and my trusty Oil Free Moisturizer by Kate Somerville but think the change has stemmed from the way I’m removing my make up at night – as that’s where the most products…
