Curls and a dewy glow..

Today I used a curling tong to curl my hair, I haven't done this in AGES, why I don't know.. There's never enough time I guess.


Soft curls really give a romantic feel, the trick is to do big chunks and then run your fingers through them once it has cooled down.

My make up has been natural everyday for the past few weeks, it seems the gloomy weather has drowned my inspiration to apply colour onto my face.*Sigh* I'm always longing for Summer.

Here's what I was wearing today:

  • Face: Mac 'Face and Body' C3, Chanel pressed powder on the centre of my face, studio finish concealer NC30.
  • Cheeks: Benefit Hoola, Jemma Kidd radiance cream 'Rose Gold'.
  • Lips: Jemma Kidd lip liner 'Nutmeg', Jemma Kidd lipstick 'Bridgetown'.
  • Eyes: Mac 'Vellum', 'Patina' & 'Satin Taupe' e/s, Jemma Kidd eyeliner 'Earth', Rimmel 'Max volume flash' mascara. Garnier tinted eye roll on and YSL Touch Eclat to brighten under the eyes.


As you can see I am wearing quite a lot of Jemma Kidd make up, I was recently sent a few items and I can not believe that almost everything they sent me was in the perfect shades. The lip liner is amazing, it's even nicer than my beloved Mac 'Oak' lipliner, (I'm going to do a post on lip liners soon.) The lipstick is a brown toned nude, and the eyeliner is a rich dark brown.

However, there was a major standout product, and that is the 'Dewy Glow all over radiance creme in 02 Rose Gold'.

The packaging is rubber just like Nars which is SO annoying as it gets grubby very quickly. However, It does have a big mirror inside the compact which is great for on the go.

It's a cream highlighter which isn't oily or greasy, it's very smooth and non sticky. The shade is a beautiful gold with a slight Rosy hue, hence the name 'Rose Gold'.


I have been using it applied on the tops of my cheekbones almost every day, it adds luminosity without looking sweaty. It's very natural and I usually just dab it on with my fingers.


Have you been curling your hair recently? And do you have any favourites from 'Jemma Kidd'?
