Mini Makeover – Ruth

Yes, it’s a mini-makeover again this week, mainly because I AM the world’s worst photographer, and I owe Ruth a massive apology as a result. Anyhoo, on with the “show”, as they say!  Please meet Ruth: Ruth is someone I’ve known virtually for longer than I care to remember, but up until her makeover we’d never actually met in the flesh!  Ruth runs Love it […]

Makeover: Kerry

After a bit of last minute confusion with one of my other volunteers, the lovely Kerry stepped in to have a makeover, and I’m glad she did, as this is one of my favourites! Meet Kerry: Kerry is really very pretty already, with enormous green eyes.  Sometimes Kerry thinks she looks a bit young (never an issue as far as I’m concerned!) so was looking […]

Organic Wednesday – Plant Love II: The Review

I already said a fair bit about Plant Love during the makeover part of Organic Wednesday, so this won’t be a long post!  I’ve tried a few ranges of organic colour cosmetics recently, and I have to say that Plant Love is definitely a cut above as far as I’m concerned.  The colours in the eyeshadows are strongly pigmented, they’re easy to apply and blend […]

Organic Wednesday – Makeover Special!

So, something a little different this week.  As promised, every Wednesday I’ll be seeking out and reviewing organic beauty goodies, but this week I’m bringing you a makeover first, and a full review later. I’ve heard a fair bit about Plant Love over the last few weeks, and when Puresha offered to send me some of their range of cosmetics to try in a makeover, […]

Organics – A new series

Long gone are the days where I could slap just any old thing on my skin and pay no heed to the consequences.  Too many years of recklessly painting myself with the most chemical-laden and powerfully-perfumed old muck – then using the equivalent of paint stripper to take it off – has left me with a face that breaks out and flares up into welts […]
