The New Makeup of Old Bethany

My usual makeup is pretty boring. I’m a fan of burnt orange or gold eyeshadow for an evening look, and a slick of brown eyeliner and mascara during the day. I’ll wear a bright red lip quite happily, but you’re…

New Beauty Buys

Way back when I first started this blog I wrote predominantly about beauty. This has definitely been phased out over time, as I realised that I actually don’t know that much about skincare or makeup. This meant that all I…

Sensitive Skin Care

I’ve written about my skin a lot as of late, whether it’s been the trials and tribulations of eczema and allergy tests or my rare autoimmune skin condition, and so by now you probably know that my skin has some…

Three Masks Of The Moment

I’m definitely not one of those people that manages to fit in a face mask every other night or even once a week, but I do love indulging in them whenever I find the time. Depending on how my skin…

Two Very Different Sleepy Skincare Routines

I basically have two evening skin care routines. One is minimal, for when I’m absolutely knackered and just want to fall into bed asap and not bother with all my lotions and potions, and the other is for when I…

How I’m Trying To Wash My Hair Less
