Make-Up Review | Makeup Revolution 'Golden Sugar' Ultra Blush and Contour Palette

Dino's Beauty Diary - Makeup Review - Makeup Revolution 'Golden Sugar' Ultra Blush and Contour Palette

Before blogging, I'd never spent much time on my makeup. I'd simply dab on some eyeshadow and eyeliner before heading about my day. Since starting my little corner of the internet last year, I'm thankful to say I now have a full makeup routine (thank God!). And that includes something I'd never really used before blogging: Blusher.

MAC Haulin' #2 - Duty Free

Dino's Beauty Diary - MAC Haulin' #2 - Duty Free

You know that feeling of excitement once you get through all the stages of an airport, and realise there's only a plane journey between you and your destination? Well when Liam took me to Turkey a couple of weeks ago, that feeling was heightened tenfold when I got to duty free at Birmingham Airport. To my surprise and excitement, there is a MAC in duty free! And as it's duty free, it's quite a bit cheaper. Contain your excitement guys!!

Manicure Mondays #7 | Introducing: Models Own 'Fruit Pastel' Scented Collection

Boy oh boy do I have a sweet treat for you all today. I'll admit, when I first heard the concept of scented nail polishes I was a little skeptical. Afterall, how could anything replace the overpowering scent of nail varnish? Thankfully, with these little scented beauties, I am now thoroughly convinced.

Holiday Essentials #1 - Beauty

Dino's Beauty Diary - Holiday Essentials #1 - Beauty

I have serious holiday blues. Honestly, I was half tempted to just stick my head in the sand and stay in Turkey forever. But alas, real life called and me and Liam had to get back to reality. However, it's not all doom and gloom! Whilst we were away, inspiration hit and I knew I'd have a few good posts to share with you all. And that's where todays post comes in...my beauty essentials for holiday!

Dino's Beauty Diary - Skincare Review - No7 'Beautiful Skin' Day and Night Creams for Dry/Very Dry Skin

One of my biggest peeves is dry skin. Nowadays I notice it more and more when I'm applying my foundation - annoying dry patches here and there. But with a proper skincare regime, and the No7 'Beautiful Skin' Day and Night Creams, I've started noticing a real difference. My skin looks more hydrated, healthier and brighter than ever before.

As you can probably guess, I went on a bit of a spending spree, and what girl can resist some quality MAC purchases?! I must admit, I've shopped sparingly at MAC in the past, but thanks to some of my lovely blogging girls (FrankieHannahSarah and Sian I'm looking at you) I dove in head first and came out with some amazing purchases!

April Favourites (2015)

Since I've never done a favourites post before, I thought with the end of the month now upon us, it was a perfect time to do so! As I love reading so much, each favourites series will most likely include my favourite book from that month too!
