Who I Follow on Snapchat

Snapchat has quickly become one of my favourite social media outlets (is that even a phrase?). I love it because it’s raw and unedited and you can share things as you do them.

While I only use snapchat for sending snaps between friends I do love following my favourite bloggers and celebrities. It’s a chance to get a glimpse in to their everyday world. But it’s tough to find people to follow and so I thought I’d share with you who I follow and so you could maybe find some new people. It’d be great if you could let me know who you like to follow by leaving me a comment.

The Difference Between Foundation Brushes

Remember the easy days of just applying foundation with a sponge? Granted, it probably didn’t look too great but foundation life was pretty easy. Then came along the foundation revolution in the form of the flat head foundation brush. Make up went on much more smoothly than ever before.

Fast forward to now and makeup brushes are every gals best friend. We’ve got about 10 for each different part of our face. But do you really know the difference between all those foundation brushes you’ve hoarded over the years because a YouTuber told you it was their absolute fave? I came across this info graphic a little while ago from The Beauty Department and it completely changed my attitude towards foundation brushes and so I thought I’d share it with you as well as letting you know which brand of brush I use.

Stippling Brush

Luckily,  I don’t dye my hair so my natural colour just lightened (yaaayyyy) but I know that heat mixed with soaking in a pool can play havoc with your hair.

So whether you live in occasionally-sunny Ireland or (almost) always-sunny California, read on for my tips to keeping your hair healthy in the sunshine.
