Bad Beauty Habits..... Oops!

Hello everyone :)

Sorry it's been so long since my last post, I've been a very bad blogger lately! So, continuing with the theme of being a bad beauty blogger, today is going to be a little post revealing to you all my bad beauty habits. I love reading posts like this, so I hope you will enjoy reading it too!

1. Brush cleaning. I have a feeling this might be quite a common one, but none the less, I am insanely bad at keeping my makeup brushes clean. One of my new years resolutions was to try and clean my brushes more often, but it still ends up being far too long between cleans. Oops!

2. Lipstick storage. I'm someone who likes to keep all her makeup neatly organised in acrylic storage so I always know where everything is. However this goes completely out the window when it comes to my lipsticks. I have a little stand which is supposed to hold the ones I use most often, however they always seem to get chucked in my bag when I go out somewhere and then stay there for ages. I forget what ones I have, and it has sometimes even caused me to buy one I already had because I forgot I had it. I find them everywhere, in bags, drawers and all over the place in my car.

3. Hair conditioning. I'm lucky enough that my hair normally tends to be in pretty good condition, so i tend to get a bit lazy when it comes to conditioning it. I always use conditioner, but never leave it on as long as I should. Like 30 seconds at the max which almost seems pointless. I should probably count myself lucky that my hair doesn't suffer too much for it.

4. Morning skincare routine. When it comes to bedtime, I'm pretty good with my skin care routine, and always make sure to remove my makeup, cleanse and tone, and do a face mask a couple of times a week. But in a morning, I'm all about getting up, dressed, makeup on and out, so my face gets nothing more than a wash while I'm in the shower and a quick moisturize before I put my makeup on. It's lucky my foundation has an SPF in it too cause I never remember to protect the skin on my face. Bad beauty blogger!

5. Picking at nail polish. It's no wonder that I have to paint my nails so often, as I have such a bad habit of picking it and peeling it off. I know it can't be doing my nails any good, but it seems to be a stress related habit. I find it hard to properly test the lasting power of a nail polish as I pick it off before it would normally chip, but I do always say that in my reviews. I like to be honest :)

So that's it! I'm now filled with shame, but please don't hate me beauty bloggers... It feels good to admit it all to you :) What are all of your bad beauty habits? I'd love to know in the comments.....

Love to you all x

My Payday Wishlist

Hello everyone :)

Sorry its been a while since I've posted, but things have just been a bit crazy, what with studying, a job interview, actually getting the job and arranging everything for the week away for training! But today, I woke up completely full of cold, so have spent the day curled up in bed watching Netflix, looking online to plan what I'm going to buy with my first months wages...

1. Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 Palette
I've tried a few products by Makeup Revolution, and have been really impressed. So when I started seeing reviews popping up everywhere on how this was a good dupe for the Naked 3, I knew I had to try. Plus, it's only £4... Bargain! I will probably end up adding a few lipsticks and nails polishes into my basket too... but haven't decided which yet.

2. theBalm Cindy-Lou Manizer Highlighter

Lately, I have been obsessed with all things highlighter related! I was having a mass blog reading session the other day, when it dawned on me that I don't actually have this one in my collection. I had a little look on good old, and decided that for £16, this WILL be mine come payday :) I've heard nothing but good things about this, so I hope it lives up to the hype!
3. Burt's Bees Facial Cleanser
So far, all I have ever tried from Burt's Bees is their lip balms, and I love them. I have been looking for a new facial cleanser to try, but don't want one that's too full of chemicals. This one looks perfect, and is made up of plant-based ingredients too, so keeping it natural. It's also got a gentle exfoliating quality to keep skin looking polished. Sounds good to me! I've seen it go for between £8 and £12 so I will be keeping my eyes out for a bargain.
4. Models Own Polishes for Tans
Finally we have the newest range from Models Own. The Polishes for Tans range contains bright neon colours which are perfect for adding a bright dash of colour into your spring/summer wardrobe or beauty routine. I can't decide which one I want most, so I might have to go for all of them... Oops! I've always been  huge fan of Models Own polishes, so I'm sure I won't be disappointed by these.
Well that's all I've added to my payday list so far. If there's anything else you lot think I should have a look at then please let me know :) and sorry again for the insanely long time it's been since my last post.
Love to you all x
