Get The Glow: With Revolution

Anyone who knows me knows I am aaaaaaall about that matte finish.. all about the matte, 'bout the matte! Matte everything - and I aways have been! I've never event attempted a dewy look as it's not a look I thought I liked on myself.. HOWEVER.. lately, I've been persuaded by "the glow" after admiring my girl, Meg's, make up at work as well as trying to change up my make up since my skin has dried a little in the cold weather. I've recently been using a dewy finish primer under my foundation to start off with, little steps and all that. But I've been looking at purchasing the Revolution "Glow Revolution Prime Set And Glow" sprays for a while and to beat the January blues, I decided to treat myself.  The sprays are incredible - they're so easy to use, light way and not too over the top which was my biggest worry.

Favourite Places to Eat and Drink in Leicester

I can't believe we've been in Leicester a year next month - it's absolutely flown by!

2018 Beauty Favourites

It's definitely a coat that I'll be wearing for the next few years.  PS - It's now in the sale
