Rimmel Match Perfection Review


Since my early teens I've been using L'Oreal True Match foundation, yet recently it's started to irritate my skin so after scouting around for about an hour (much to my boyfriend's dismay) I decided on Rimmel's Match Perfection foundation. The product certainly matches it's title; it is perfect!

For a mere £6.99, this foundation is heaven in a bottle. It smells gorgeous and is as light as a feather on the skin. I can even manage to apply without putting moisturiser on first which is an achievement with the skin type I have! The 'Light Nude' shade I bought also matches my skin perfectly even when I haven't tanned so I don't have the unattractive orange face white neck look.

For a flawless finish, use Rimmel's Stay Matte pressed powder over the top.

Loving Rimmel at the moment and thought I'd share with you all!

Summer is soon upon us!


As the weather is getting warmer (slightly), I thought I'd write a post about my favourite spring/summer trends for 2013.

The biggest by far is monochrome. Wear black or white separately this season to look cute and classical but mix them together if you want to look the best! My monochrome midi skirt is from New look for £14.99 and can be dressed up or down for a fab day or night look. It also ticks off the trend of stripes which is set to be HUGE this season, 2 for the price of 1!

Pastel colours work on any skin tone and can be worn clothes or makeup wise. You simply can't go wrong! Get my mint green pastel tee from H&M for a fab £7.99. There are so many colours to choose from too. I have five! Wear with jeans or shorts for a cool look in the day or tucked into a skater skirt for a naughty but nice night look. Green, along with yellow is also a massive hit for summer.

Finally, one of my all time faves is leather. My leather waistcoat is from Miss Selfridge for around £80. Sleeveless jackets are a must to vamp up any summer look with a bit of edge. The lack of sleeve also counter balances the heat from the leather.
