Hey my follow beauties!

I thought this month I would share my favourite highlight and glosses which I have been reaching for quite regularly. I've tried experimenting with minimal/ no makeup makeup looks and have really been enjoying discovering new products and those which compliment each other.  Do you ever go through stages like this? I love to switch things up, discover new products and ways I can use them so they are multipurpose, besides, who doesn't love a product that you can use for both eyes and lips?

The first product I am going to talk about Is the Laura Geller New York Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in the shade 'Diamond Dust'.  From my first swatch I knew instantly that this highlight would be in with my all time favourite highlights. The shade compliments my fair skin tone really well! It's impressive as I've found a shade which doesn't make my cheek bones look grey/white/washed out, perfect! Please leave a comment below if you have ever tried this highlight, what are your thoughts? Or just comment your favourite product for the month of February!

The swatch above shows the true pigmentation of this illuminator, no edits, no change of contrast or brightness, the illuminator in it's true form. The pigment picks up pretty well so if you like subtle highlights then go easy with either the application or the choice of tool to apply this. It is buildable if you want an even more intense highlight. The image above shows the pigmentation primer free, amazing right? There isn't much fallout from this highlight if handled carefully. There is a pink/pearl undertone to this highlight which is demonstrated with better quality in the below image. It's such a gorgeous unique shade which is perfect for both the cheekbones and inner corner of the eyes, applying this is sure to make them pop! 

This highlight retails for: $26.00 US Dollars  
                                         £16.50 GBP Beauty Bay
                                         £21.00 GBP Cult Beauty 
                                         £21.00 GBP Look Fantastic 

To start, glosses haven't always been my favourite out of all the lip products, being completely honest with you guys, I tried a gloss once a few years ago and completely hated the texture it left on my lips, specially if they have become dehydrated. Lipgloss + Dehydrated Lips = my worse nightmare. So I never really looked back after that point, even though I loved the colour payoff, I just couldn't deal with the 'tacky' feeling, specially after being a matte kinda girl!


Yes, this is me actually saying I may have just been converted, not completely to gloss only but I've found a product that actually works well with my lips, doesn't feel dehydrating and has great colour payoff. The Laura Geller Color Luster Lip Gloss is one where one swipe of this, you have enough product to use for one application and provides great pigmentation. Some of the glosses that I have swatched in the drug store I find are very transparent and I find myself having to swatch 3-5 times to see the true colour. The thought of that many applications of gloss on my lips is an instant no, not only would that be costly if used regularly but wow, my lips would just feel that I have un-needed layers, not the best texture to feel. THESE however. WOW. I've taken a picture of the gloss with just one swatch, no edits, no play with contrast or brightness, the gloss in it's true form. I am certainly impressed with the pigmentation as it's just right for one application without the dreaded feel on my lips.

Let's talk texture. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has certain characteristics that I go for with products? 


The gloss does apply like a regular gloss does, however, it's no where near as tacky feel as some of the glosses I have tried in the past. It's bearable,  more of a creamy texture than tacky. I can actually apply this without the need to take it off straight away, specially when paired with a matte lip. It adds that shine and pigment without it being clumpy. However, it does transfer, which if I'm completely honest, I didn't expect it not to, considering it is a gloss, it's to be expected to a certain degree. Having said this, even with a transfer, I didn't find that my lips were bare after drinking, pigmentation of the gloss still remained which was great.

These two shades are PERFECT for the upcoming summer months, specially if you are matte girl like me and want to switch things up a little.  These shades are fun, vibrant but not overpowering and they compliment quite a few skin tones too. The best thing I love about makeup is products that you can buy and you know the money you have spent on it will see you through the whole time until the expiration date. Products that last. There are 6 shades in the collection. The top shade which is more of a peach shade is 'Rosy Tarte' and below is ' Berry Smoothie'. 

'This moisturizing, high-shine lip gloss leaves lips drenched in light-to-medium coverage with soft, yet brilliant, shine—ideal for everday wear! The lightweight formula is infused with antioxidant Italian Tomato Extract to protect lips and moisturizing Kendi Oil to condition, leaving lips soft and supple.'  - Laura Geller.

Retails for:
$19.00 US Dollars
£12.75 -HQHAIR

I hope you have enjoyed reading this post and it has helped someone discover a new product to add to their wish list or makeup kit!

Brighten Your Look And Get Ready For Summer!

Hi Lovelies! 

I'm back with another blog post and I've been dying to show you this foundation!

For the days where I want to feel that little bit more fresh faced, to show off my " no makeup makeup", to make a statement but also feel that my makeup enhances my features in a natural way, this product can do just that. 

Do you guys ever have them days? 

For all my girls out there who suffer with dry skin, girl I feel you. I've suffered with dry skin for as long as I can remember. Finding a foundation that isn't liquid but also doesn't make me look cakey, however still has the right amount of coverage has been a struggle.  Although my skin has been taking a positive turn, I still love a coverage throughout the year!

This here is the Laura Geller Baked Balance -N- Brighten Foundation. I have two shades Fair and Porcelain.

This is a compact baked powder  foundation which offers the most beautiful coverage.  The foundation itself is made with unique blend of different shades to both compliment the skin tone as well as brighten it. There is nothing I dislike more than to finish my makeup and my skin to feel and look dull. This foundation will provide a coverage which is both light and offers good coverage for days where you want your skin to look like skin but have just that slight enhancement and glow.

As you can see from the image above, with just one swatch I was able to pick up quite a good amount of product which provides great coverage. The shade swatched above is 'Fair' and is perfect for those who are fair and have pink undertones. This compliments the skin so well without feeling like you have foundation on. The perfect thing about this foundation that really drawn me in is the fact that I can customise how much coverage I want. This foundation is buildable to suit your preferred coverage of a powder foundation and is amazing for " no makeup makeup days".

The foundation is compact and travel friendly which is perfect for the days where I may need to touch up during the day without the fear of glass bottles smashing in my bag. It also comes with a mirror which saves more room in the makeup bag for sure!

The texture of the foundation is slightly chalky, however when applied to the skin it doesn't feel like that at all. It blends seamlessly into the skin when applied with a light hand, building coverage to where needed.

The shade 'Porcelain' swatched above as shown has amazing coverage whilst also giving that brightening effect! I personally love this shade for when I am tan free as it compliments my fair skin tone quite well. This is definitely a favourite of mine. It has no scent which is quite nice as some of my liquid foundations, such the MAC Stuido Fix Fluid, if ever you have smelt it is quite a strong and overpowering at times. With this, this is perfect, specially for the upcoming summer months.

Comment below if you have ever tried this foundation and what you thought! I'd love to hear if this has worked for you.

With Love, Tanya x

I will be telling all of my secrets on my Youtube Channel so please go subscribe!  

Tanya Busby YouTube Channel!

So to make it easier for you to get the answers you are looking for, This post will refer to the products that are currently working for my skin and my Youtube Video ( part 2 ) will be up soon to discuss my 5 TOP TIPS FOR SOFT CLEAR SKIN FOR EVERY SKIN TYPE! Yes, EVERY skin type! 

So to kick start our skin journey, get out your notepads or jot down on a piece of paper why you clicked on this post? What was you hoping to find out? What are your skin care goals? Once you have them answers then you know exactly what you need to focus on to get your skin back on track and feeling more confident. This could be trying to figure out how to get softer skin, how to manage dry skin? how to manage environmental effects? There are so many different things that people want to work on and each person may have one goal to start with and that's perfect, go at your own pace because hey, it's not easy to start new habits but once you stick with it you'll find those habits start being apart of a normal routine. 

For as long as I can remember, I have suffered from dry skin. I'm quite lucky that my skin isn't severely dry, however, it's dry enough to interfere with some foundations. If this sounds like you or you are looking for new products to test out then this is the blog post for you. 

24k Bio-essence Skin Radiance Night Cleanser 

I've been using this cleanser at night to really help my skin recover from the day, whether that be from my makeup or from the harsh wind, sun and everything on the topic of environment.  I've found that this cleanser glides on smoothly to the skin which has a soothing effect. It creates a small amount of lather that works into the skin to remove any excess makeup or dirt on my skin at night. Each product that I mention may work differently on different people, I will only mention products that are currently working on my skin, with the hopes that you find something that catches your interest because it's taken me 23 years of trial and error and thats okay! I'll be talking more about the importance of using a cleanser in my routine more on my YouTube Video!

Christian Breton Paris Liftox Serum

This is one product I now can't live without. After years of, being honest, not taking much care to protect my skin from forming wrinkles, I've took a serious turn to try and prevent them now. If I can save myself treatments in the future by helping to protect against the cause in the first place then this is where my motivation comes from. This serum is on the luxury side of the budget, however the ingredient's make up for it. Containing snake venom like peptide, caviar extract and collagen, this serum gives me my youthful look.  So why caviar? Apparently, the omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids have been shown to reduced inflammatiion when topically applied, however please do your research to determine whether you want to add this into your own skin care routine. I have been using this every day for 3 weeks and so far I have noticed that my skin looks more radiant and firm which hasn't made my skin feel uncomfortable and is one of the products that I will continue to use!

Christian Breton Paris Liftox Face Cream 

I use to be terrible, probably one of the worst people for not using face cream. I never used it growing up and in all honesty, I didn't think it would make much difference to the appearance of my skin. Oh how I was wrong! Specially with my dry skin.. around winter.. can you imagine? I use this daily, twice a day, morning and night. I am absolutely in love with the formula of this face cream, it's quite thick in texture but it absorbs so well into the skin. After 10 minutes my skin feels hydrated and that's luxury for any of you out there who suffer from dry skin like me! The smell is quite pleasant and I find it's like a drink for the skin. If you want to find out more how I got on with this, please comment below!

Cloud 9 Skin Solutions Good Night Deep Nourishing Sleep Mask

If I haven't gone on about it enough, you probably would have guessed that I never used a sleep mask, ever. I thought a night cream at the very maximum would be absolutely fine for my skin. Until this little gem came into my life. This is a product that I apply on top of my night cream! I even use this sometimes throughout the day if my skin needs that bit more hydration. This little beauty is something I won't forget to apply at night because I've seen such a difference in my skin since using it. This gem gets to work whilst you sleep so as soon as you wake up, your skin thanks you and you don't need to do anything more. This is such a brilliant idea for those of you who need a simple but effective routine. All more reason to buy it as a special gift just in time for Christmas and you can even share the secret by gifting it to someone close to you. 

Christian Breton Anti-wrinkle Hydrogel Eye Contour Mask

Eye masks? Now I'm hoping I'm not the only one to only just put this into my routine, surely? I only ever used to use face masks and didn't think much of using anything more and plus I felt like this extra step might not make much of a difference anyway. Until I started to realise that with face masks, the eye area is un touched, I started to think about how neglected my under eye area had become. These hydrogel eye contour masks are the perfect way to treat the under eyes once a week and the road to hydrated eyes becomes easier. These are perfect because they can be kept in the fridge for personal preference to add to the cooling effect. This feels like giving yourself that salon pamper treatment but it's in your own home, even better. I started using eye masks as I started to notice lines after testing out a new concealer, sparking the thought that I really do need to start looking after my skin, besides, a great routine definitely makes the difference of the overall makeup look. I have many compliments on my skin care without foundation which makes me feel much more confident, so take care of your skin and your skin will thank you in return.

I'm excited to be getting back into my blog after so much focus on getting the ball rolling with my Youtube Channel! 

Today I'm going to be talking hair. Now if you are anything like me, my hair is my pride and joy. When it's styled right and feels amazing, my confidence instantly grows! I'm like a new person. After going for a drastic change in my hair, I actually went blonde! My confidence grew but my hair took all the damage. What made things worse was feeling that I wanted to go even more lighter as I found myself plastering my hair with bleach and hair dye after.. in one sitting. Now I know what you're thinking, why?! I'm spontaneous. If I have an idea in my head, I want it done there and then, without really thinking of the consequences. And oh how my hair took the consequences. I found myself crying in the bathroom ( wish I was lying ) whilst pulling the brush through my hair, watching chunks fall to the ground. I know, my mistake. Luckily my hair is quite thick so I wasn't left with major long term consequences apart from the unappealing dryness as the shine was utterly removed that I took so long to have. 

So after years of trial and error I have put together my top tips to restore the hair's shine and health, no more wishing for perfect hair when you can be on the right track to having the hair you've been lusting over on Instagram, I was the same!  


Although hair dye isn't really your best friend in the healthy hair department, it sure helps if your hair is in fairly good condition before you decide to change your look! Focusing on restoring your hair to the softness you've always wanted is a woman's dream, but how can we do this on a budget?  I have always believed that the skin, hair, mind and soul can really be nourished from the inside out. If you think of it, if your taking care of your body by eating the right things and incorporating vitamins and minerals into the diet, it really does 'shine' through. I know personally that I can tell when I need to drink more water by the dull and tired face and hair staring back at me in the mirror. I have definitely noticed a difference not only in the length of my hair, but through the condition of it when my body is hydrated. It's like your body is rewarding you. If the body feels good, it will show on the outside. If your lips are dry, the thing I tend to realise is that they are dehydrated and I head for the kitchen to drink as much as humanly possible. If my hair is dry, I think the same. 

As well as hydration, it's particularly important to make sure we have enough vitamins and I'm probably not the only one who doesn't get enough of my daily vitamin intake! Opt for a multivitamin, they even come in chewable gummy form which makes taking care of my hair even easier. 


Now I'm not saying I'm perfect at always looking after my hair because let's face it, life gets in the way and these days I'm falling asleep at 7 o'clock. But after seeing the damaging effects from the environment and added bleach, I've taken the time to really look after my hair on the outside as well as inside. There are a lot of hair masks out in todays market as well as DIY'S so theres such a variety to choose from! From the years of trial and error, I've learnt to purchase/make hair masks that target the key desirable outcomes that I really need. My hair is super dry, so opting for hair masks that contain either honey or say on the label ' for softness' is vital in my hair care routine. I tend to leave deep hair masks to do their magic from anywhere between 30 minutes to overnight! If I'm in a hurry, 10 minutes is better than no hair mask at all because theres nothing bad about adding some kindness to your hair.  


I never really thought about the effects on my hair from just heading outside until having soft hair in the morning and battling to get it out of a hair bobble at the end of a rainy day. If you think about the damaging affects on our skin, we can start to see how this kind of damage can have on our hair too. One of the worst things about this factor is that it is quite difficult to control the environment, however, using the steps above will combat the damage it has. Taking care of your hair by protecting it from the environment ; using buns, protective hair styles, using silk pillow cases, head scarfs and tucking the ends of our hair away from the wind pressure can all help. 

So wouldn't it be great to have a product that does all three key steps in one? These are the products that have changed my hair game. 

The Lee Stafford Mud Mask. This beauty has been an absolute hair saver. This hair mask is from the deep sea which is full of salts and minerals to deeply moisturise, strengthen, repair and rejuvenate the hair. I use this mask religiously as it's one of the few hair masks that I can use without weighing the hair down.  This mask can be used for even the shortest amount of time ( 5 minutes) and still the hair can benefit from all of the goodness. I use this mask twice a week now and I can say it has definitely reduced the damage from the bleach as it leaves my hair silky soft after. I am completely in love with this mask as it not only leaves my hair soft, it also smells amazing! If you have ever smelt Lee Stafford products then you'll already know how great this smells. It's one of the few hair masks that I have tried that actually leaves the scent in your hair after you have washed it. I can comb through my hair without pulling half of my hair out because hair is much more easier to manage if it is detangled. Still not convinced? Head into your local Superdrug or Boots and give it a smell, you'll be walking away a happy woman.. or man! 


 If you have been active on social media for a while, you'll remember everyone raving about coconut oil. Bad day? Coconut oil. Bad skin? Coconut oil. Life hack? Coconut oil. 

Now even when this trend was going ( still going ) I have used cold pressed coconut oil in the past and always wondered why it didn't work for me and why my hair ended up hard like cardboard. Maybe it was the way I was applying it? Maybe it just didn't work for my hair? Maybe it was a mystery. After many years of analysing my hair type, I was finally able to understand my hair type more and target techniques and products that work for it, instead of using products that work for other hair types ( I have another post on this.. ' how to grow longer healthier hair' ). Even after finding the technique to make coconut oil work for my hair, I found myself having to wash it 4 times after applying, even then my hair looked like 'second day' hair. For years I stayed away because of how high maintenance it was to use it. However, The CoCo LoCo Hair Oil is one of the first hair products I have used that still has all of the benefits of coconut oil but in a light spray. I was shocked that I even liked it after having such a troublesome time with coconut oil in the past. This product acts like a sealant to the hair which is amazing because it makes the top 3 tips above easy to achieve with this one product. If you think of it, once you moisturise the hair and have restored it back to life, how do we keep this goodness in? This is where the CoCo LoCo spray comes in. This spray will protect the hair from the environment, keeping in the moisture by stealing the hair strands. Think of it as a coat for the hair. This product will act as a barrier between the hair's moisture and the harsh environment. Even better when it's light, doesn't weigh the hair down and smells absolutely amazing. I use a small pea size amount which is enough product to coat the ends of my hair. It's a product I will continue to use.

How To Create A Statement Look With A Hint Of Luxury!

Hi Lovelies!

As a makeup artist, I am constantly looking for new trends, new collections and new shades to add to my kit. As I do makeup looks for a wide range of individuals of different age groups, I wanted to find a collection that was bold and allowed for a subtle but statement looks. I was kindly sent a few products from the Joan Collin's timeless beauty collection which was great because I have only seen a few but not many posts about her product line. If you haven't heard of her before, she is an English actress, author and columnist. Over the years, her makeup looks have always been quite bold and followed the trend of dark eyes and a statement red lip.  I was actually surprised to find on her website that she has a wide range of products to suit many skin types and skin tones to create your own statement look. The amazing thing about this brand as that it aims to keep skin healthy and treat the skin whilst adding beauty. So when you purchase a product, your skin and body is enjoying the luxurious benefits without you having to do add another step to your routine. 

The packaging for her brand is absolutely stunning. If you love the packaging of the Charlotte Tilbury products then this will be sure to make a statement on your dressing table. Apart from the packaging being luxurious, the shade range of the lipsticks are quite generous. I have two shades from the collection, Melanie (deep plum shade) and Evelyn (statement red shade) both that follow that trend setter.  Below, I have provided images of the lipsticks and swatches.

The shades are absolutely beautiful. Before swatching, I thought that the lipsticks would be a matte finish but actually they are more of a satin finish. They glide on the lips so effortlessly and have a moisturising formula which is great for those who have drier lips, love the satin finish and is perfect even for those who are within the older generation. The great thing about these lipsticks is that the colour payoff is amazing. I didn't need to use a lot of product to get the swatches at all. The only downfall about the formula is that because they are so creamy and moisturising, be very careful about about the pressure you place to get a swatch or put on the lips as they are fragile and found they can break easily, however, if you apply with a light hand then you are all good to go!

The shades definitely fit in with the statement looks from Joan Collins herself and the colour payoff is absolutely beautiful.  I have tried satin lipsticks from MAC and I find that these can be slightly uncomfortable on the lips, however, the formula of these lipsticks have a totally different feel on the lips. Although moisturising, these don't feel too uncomfortable which is great for those who suffer from having dry lips or find themselves having cracks show up from normal lipsticks.

  • Dermalogically tested
  • Suitable for sensitive skin
  • Actively hydrates
  • Protects the lips
  • TESTED and SHOWN to improve hydration in 30 days.

If you are also not too bothered about transfer then these are perfect. They do transfer easily because of the moisturising formula it has although I find that if i want to reduce the transfer of any lipstick, not only Joan Collins Timeless Beauty, then I apply a small amount of setting powder and it doesn't transfer as much and allowed the lipstick of these beauties to have the same amount of pigment which is great.

Next up is the Timeless Beauty Lash Growth Treatment Gel. I've always wanted to lash full lush lashes without having to apply false lashes and although my own has some length, they are not as full as I want them to be. After using this product for 2 weeks i can already see if a difference in my lashes. Below I have inserted a picture of my lashes from using this treatment and how defined they look without mascara. They give my lashes a curl which is amazing before applying mascara and even without. I also have started to use this gel for my eyebrow hairs! My eyebrow hair is very light which can be annoying as I have to shadow in my eyebrow hairs if i want to look as though i even have any!

Above you can definitely see how much of a curl this product gives my eyelashes! That's me saving some money on salon treatments! The only thing I would say is that because this is a treatment gel, it does make your eyelashes slightly hard but not enough to interfere with applying mascara. It's quite a luxury treatment within itself and I can definitely say I will be purchasing this when it runs out! I also noticed that when I applied the treatment to my under eyelashes, the product came into contact with my eye and didn't irritate my sensitive eyes at all.  I also use this product as a 'clear brow' gel if I decide to have my eyebrows natural, I just apply this to the brow and it not only sets it in place but also gives them a luxury growth treatment!

I also tested out the Class Act Mascara in 'Black'. Below I have added the result and I am shocked. I can't believe that with how stubborn my lashes are and with whatever mascara i seem to have used in the past, I couldn't get all the results which I wanted, curl, volume and length and as you can see from the pictures, this did an amazing job! The formula isn't wet but it doesn't dry too quick either so it's great if you want to add more layers to your lashes without the worry of it clumping together which is a common occurrence with mascaras i have used in the past.

I am so impressed with the quality of the products and If you too are interested in getting the same result as me, ill insert a link below to direct you to where you can buy these products. Not interested in lipstick or mascara? The brand has also introduced a range of skin care, nails, fragrance, gifts and accessories, body care (body polish and luxurious bath salts).

Thank you for reading! Have you tried the Joan Collins Timeless Beauty Range?

Yes! I currently have one puppy called Molly (5 months old) and one cat called Coco ( of course I picked the name!). I did have another family dog who unfortunately passed away and we had her for as long as i can remember growing up. Pets definitely form a part of the family.

2. Can you speak any other languages?

I wish! Unfortunately no. I did study French in school but as far as knowing the language, all I can say is Bonjour haha! If I could choose to learn a different language it would be Spanish.

3. What's your favourite plant or flower?

My favourite plant would be Aloe vera, for two reasons. One, they look super cool in the home and two, they have super great ingredients for the hair and skin when applied directly! Specially for sunburn too! ( i might do a blog post all about the uses of this plant, if this sounds like something you would be interested in give me a comment in the comment section below!). 

4. What area of blogging would you like to do more of?

I would love to do more fashion type posts, however, it's not so easy with two young children at the moment but it's definitely something i'm interested in doing for the future.

5. What is/was your favourite subject in school?

I loved art because it's in my nature to be creative so i absolutely loved it. Although studying 'Food' in school just made school experience even more enjoyable, however the affect on my bank account and my weight gain didn't just stop after I finished the subject (haha). 

6. Best present you have ever received?

I couldn't quite think of a physical present that was the 'best' but the best gift in life I was given was is my children.

7. What has been your best blogging experience to date?

I'm still a newbie to blogging but the whole experience is great and i love connecting with other people, the inspiration and support in this community is great!

8. Have you ever met anyone famous?

Unfortunately no but I did see the singer Jamelia in a local park to me once and I wouldn't exactly say 'met' because i spent the most part questioning whether it was actually her because you wouldn't expect to see someone famous whilst sitting for a picnic!

9. If you could choose one thing that you would definitely get to achieve in your life what would it be?

I already have happiness, with my children and that's everything I could have ever wanted. In terms of blogging, I want to achieve creating a youtube channel, I have been thinking about it for years and I think this year will be my year to take the plunge and just go for it! ( Once I can get over my accent!) 

10. Do you have a lucky number?

The number 12. It's my first daughters date of her birthday. I gear more towards numbers that have a meaning.

11. What was your reason for starting your blog?

I started watching Beauty and makeup tutorials since the age of 14. Every day when I came home from school I would always be caught watching beauty guru's for hours. I have always been interested in blogging and spoke about the products/experiences within my life in person since the age of 14, it's only recently in the past year that I started to upload content because i loved knowing the positive influence blogging can be for someone.  Also, it's kind of like an escape. After a long day with my girls, I can sit down for hours glued to the screen, typing away and being in my own little world. Knowing it's gone from my own little world to realising how big of a community blogging is and the difference niches there are, it's so interesting to me being a beauty lover.
