I’m sorry if this isn’t the autumnal content you’re looking for. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m enjoying my third and (as far as I know ) final trip to Spain this year, soaking up the September sun before returning to drizzly England to smash out some Halloween looks. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Any suggestions? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Dress @ratandboa earrings @rosapietsch
[Open in IGTV] A lot of you requested a video on how I slick my hair back, so here it is. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have you ever had short hair that you’ve grown out? Do you have any tips on how to grow it out gracefully? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m currently growing out my pixie cut, so my hair keeps getting in my eyes and getting in the way of my makeup looks. This hairstyle makes me feel neat, slick and allows me to show off my makeup. I’m continuing to trim the back and sides until the rest of the hair catches up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve recently found a gel that is vegan, cruelty free and keeps my hair in place, Eco styler olive oil gel (not sponsored, not gifted ). I also borrowed a comb from my dads hairdressing kit, and used a “tooth” brush by Ben nye for the hairline. Let me know if you have any vegan hair products that you love, below. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (Disclaimer: I am a makeup artist, not a hair stylist. This is just a style I’ve been wearing a lot over the past year, and have toyed with over the years due to an obsession with 1920’s /30’s aesthetic. There are so many amazing finger-wave/ baby hair styling tutorials on YouTube, catering to all different hair types, that I recommend you check out if you like this kind of style. This is just what I’ve been doing personally and I’m certainly not a pro. I’ve found that my hair looks a bit thin and patchy around the hairline when I don’t comb it forward. The waves are optional but I enjoy the extra detail it brings to the look. ) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Track: HYLO - Headstrong ft. Mikey Ceaser & Akacia [NCS Release] Music provided by NoCopyrightSounds.

•CLEANSING• ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This week I’m preparing to move house, to live 10 minutes away from where this photo was taken, with my best friend of 12 years. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I moved down south to live with my Dad and step Mum 2 and a half years ago, in order to escape a toxic situation. Although ambitious, I was lost, heartbroken, traumatised and disconnected to who I was. Deciding to reach out to my family and close friends for support was the best decision I could have made. I’ve been able to heal and reconnect with myself, while building the financial foundation needed to be self sufficient. I’m so excited to start this new chapter, but simultaneously overcome with emotion at what a journey it’s been. I’m deeply grateful for the support of my family and close friends, I’m also proud of myself for all of the progress I’ve made. Although I have so much yet to achieve, I feel more authentic, empowered and capable than ever before. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you are in a situation you know isn’t serving your highest potential and happiness, or is unhealthy/unsafe, reach out and talk to someone you trust. If you’ve been putting off leaving someone or something out of fear, please do it. The first step into the unknown is so scary, and It might take time to get where you envisage yourself, but take those steps, be patient, compassionate and gentle with yourself, and you’ll be so thankful that you did. This human experience isn’t always easy, but it can be beautiful, abundant and full of joy if you prioritise your own well-being and growth above all else. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Lots of love to you all ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (Bikini from @ohpolly , photo by my roomie @theintroverteddsocialite )
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •OPEN IN IGTV• I recently uploaded a dewy glass skin tutorial. Here is a more practical, long wearing version (ft. New products from @fentybeauty and @toofaced ). Hydrating, comfortable, suitable for dry to normal skin, but won’t slide around on a hot day. I’d say this look is medium coverage, but less foundation can be applied for a lighter finish, and more concealer can be applied for a full coverage look. More or less powder can be applied depending on how dewy or matte you’d like it to be too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My new foundation was too light for me. If this ever happens to you, just mix in a drop of concealer/foundation that’s a few shades darker than your skin tone to get your perfect summer shade (this doesn’t have to be a high end product, as you only need it for it’s pigment ). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Let me know what you think about this skincare and foundation routine in the comments. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Products used: @toofaced hangover good in bed serum & moisturiser, born this way concealer and setting powder, @thebodyshop vitamin E eye cream, @fentybeauty pro filt’r hydrating primer and foundation, pro filt’r concealer, @smashboxcosmetics studio skin hydrating foundation, @nyxcosmetics @nyxcosmetics_uk highlight and contour pro palette, @ofracosmetics glow up palette, @urbandecay all nighter setting spray. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Track: Sk-Hall & Ludwiig - New Beginning [NCS Release] Music provided by NoCopyrightSounds.

•When do you feel most sexy and empowered?• ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While confidence comes from within, how I present myself really affects my mood and personality. Latex makes me feel so powerful, like no other material does. This outfit in particular made me feel like I could run a board meeting, dine at a fancy restaurant, then stop off at a fetish bar for drinks. Blessed to have a friend like @itsnangemagro of @nange magro_dead.lotus.couture who makes such stunning clothes that complement my body shape in all the right ways. Here I’m wearing a prototype of a new dress design of hers. I’ll take one in every colour please! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Shot by the wonderful @rebeccaspencer_photography while on a mini break with @toofaced , celebrating the launch of their new skincare range.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is my first EVER swatch video! What do you think? Should I make more? When I received the @meltcosmetics undertone noods liquid lipsticks I got really excited. I love a statement neutral and these are so unique. While the first shade, golden, isn’t my favourite on it’s own, it’s going to make a delicious mustard highlight for autumnal ombré lips. The last shade, Ebony, is getting me excited for Halloween! [ad- gifted product] ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Track: Syn Cole - Gizmo [NCS Release] Music provided by NoCopyrightSounds.
