The Benefit High Beam dupe that’s UNDER £4

The Benefit High Beam dupe that’s UNDER £4

I really love discovering new products from budget beauty brand W7, they’re so affordable and yet they so often produce amazing dupes for cult beauty items from other brands. They’re really affordable too and they have a mahoosive range of products. Sadly W7 products are not often available in high street shops and it’s easy to miss out; the answer is to have the occasional trawl through Amazon to see what’s on offer from W7! I’ve found some amazing products from W7 over the last few years and they’re so affordable but still great quality. Night Glow is a liquid illuminating highlighter that comes in a small bottle that looks a bit like a nail varnish bottle. You can use it to highlight certain areas of the face, like the cheekbones, brow bone and cupid’s bow of the lips. I have found that the best way to apply it is to paint a few drops onto my fingers then dab and stipple the shimmery liquid all over the skin being careful not to...

Benefit – Sugarlicious Lip & Cheek Kit

Benefit – Sugarlicious Lip & Cheek Kit

I’m a sucker for a make-up kit and I just ADORE Benefit’s make-up box collections. This one is Sugarlicious Lip & Cheek Kit and it’s one of my favourites. It contains five of Benefit’s most popular products: High Beam – enhances the complexion with a luminescent shine Benetint – a ‘sexy flush in a bottle’ for lips and cheeks Sugarbomb powder and brush – creates a natural radiance for cheeks Sugarbomb Ultra Plush – a luxurious and silky lip gloss High Beam is one of Benefit’s bestsellers and it’s easy to see why. This satiny pink liquid highlighter can be used all over the face for a radiant glow, or just as a spot highlighter on cheekbones.

Hair-Covered Bun Donut

Hair-Covered Bun Donut

The fashion for high buns seems to be taking over at the moment, so when I saw this hair-covered bun donut I thought it was a great idea. It’s just like a regular bun donut but it’s covered in synthetic hair, so if you have any gaps in your bun you can’t tell! It’s great for a beginner, just tie your hair into a high ponytail and slide the bun donut down over the ponytail until it reaches your head. Then take a small section of the ponytail and pull it back over the outside of the donut and secure it to your head using a kirby grip then tuck any loose ends of hair underneath the donut. Repeat with sections of your ponytail until all of the hair is used and the bun donut is covered! You may need to backcomb your hair a little bit to make it easier to work with. There are plenty of ‘how to’ videos on YouTube so if you’re not sure if...
