It Really Works!

A while back I posted on my Instagram that I thought I had found a combination of foundations and setting powders that actually lasted on my oily skin. I've always had oily skin but over the last year my hooter, in particular, has thrown all caution to the wind and just seems to produce enough [...]

Love In The Detail

A while back I asked for some advice on a new hobby...hand-painted pallet signs. Thank you to those of you who messaged me with advice and suggestions. It was much appreciated! I love to have a creative project on the go and whilst I'll always love my make up and skincare, I have to say...I [...]

5 Do’s and Don’ts: Powders

So we've covered foundation and the eyes (by the way, any other questions do ask, I love hearing from you!) and I wanted to cover contour, highlight and blush under the umbrella of powders.

I only ever received commendeds, highly commendeds or, if I was lucky, very highly commendeds. Never a medal nor a certificate [...]

Who is this yolk?

Julie 'No Name' Hynds, so called because my mother decided I didn't need a middle name like the rest of the family.  My husband inserts the 'No Name' portion to make me feel better. My maiden name was Campbell and after 4 and a half years of marriage I finally don't have to double check [...]
