Pedis, Products and Foundation Favourites

1. Dior Airflash Spray Foundation. Back when I was 16, before Prom, I trundled down to a Dior counter for a makeover and whenever I look back at photos of that evening I always think that they did a really good job  – no horrendous Prom makeup tale from me (the dress however….). I seem to remember them using this, so the other day I picked it up on a whim and boy is this stuff awesome. It’s a spray foundation – something that I’ve never used – and if you think about it, anything that is thin enough to get through such a mechanism is going to be invisible on the skin. There are a few tricks and tips I have to using it, but I’ll save those for another day. Speaking of foundations…

2. NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. Yes, yes, another one. This is another revival as I’ve used this formula before but back when I was at University. It’s glowy, can be altered to a medium to full coverage, works so well with my Louise Young LY34 Brush and the shade Deauville is spot on. I’ll never be without it again.

3. The At-Home Pedi. I hadn’t looked down at my feet for longer that I wish to disclose for the simple fact that my toes were well overdue a manicure and were making me a feel a bit queasy. I’d had a brief affair with standard polish down there, but it was time to go back to a gel formula. Ok, the process as a whole complete with filing, cuticle removing, shaping, curing – all that malarky – took a good hour or so but the result lasts for a good month before it needs re-doing. I use the Red Carpet Manicure Starter Set and this time plumped for the coral colour Ooo La Liscious.

4. Getting Back Into Empties. Empties videos were a topic that I used to churn out back in the day, but after getting a little tired of having to hoard mounds of plastic and glass under my bed I stopped. But after seeing the Into The Gloss ‘Things We Finish’ series my inner hoarder is back and a quick peer under my bed will have you thinking that I’m secretly living a second life as Stig of the Dump. Expect an empties video in your sub boxes soon (*insert plug here* that is if you’re subscribed to my channel?).

5. Vlogging!?! I never thought in a million years that this word would appear on a favourites list of mine, but actually it’s been nice taking you around in my pocket and showing you the highlights of my week. Mark’s even getting in on the action too which makes the editing process that more entertaining seeing his face pop up on the screen. Catch up on the story so far here.


  • Love the sound of the Dior foundation, it sounds so old school! This makes me think of my prom makeover. Navy blue eyeshadow up to my brow bone, definitely not a good look. Especially with a gold dress, eek! I’ve been loving your vlogs, really looking forward to the next one!

  • The Dior Airbrush foundation is something I’ve seriously considered too, so I look forward to your review!

    NARS Sheer Glow will always hold a special place in my heart. NARS know how to impart the perfect amount of glow: enough that you look radiant, but not so much that you look like a disco ball.

    Dior, of course, is always a good option. I was really into the idea of Airflash, but at the time I was looking at it, it didn’t come in a shade light enough for me. I’m too pale now even for my regular foundations (NARS Mont Blanc, Bobbi Brown Porcelain), so who knows at this point?

    I’m addicted to Into the Gloss’s new series as well. Finishing something shows dedication and is almost always the sign of a seriously awesome product.

    I’ve been loving your vlogs so far, and as long as you have fun with them, I look forward to more!

  • I have to try the spray foundation.. please, do a review! 🙂

    Ooh you’ve just reminded me that my toes are a mess, and I hate doing my own pedi.

  • I would be interested to know how much mess the Dior foundation creates – does it get all over the wall/floor/your clothes/hair? Sounds like a very interesting product though!


    Can’t wait to see your airflash review, it feels like you’ve been teasing us with pictures for ages!
