The first post in this series was all about affordable brushes and tools and I thought I would follow on with the posts in order which I apply my makeup: starting with the base. If you'd like to know what affordable primers, foundations and concealers I would recommend then keep reading!



Arbonne | Repurchases

If you've been reading itsneecola for a while now, you’ll have seen the brand Arbonne being mentioned a few times over the past couple of years. I used to be an Independent Consultant for Arbonne and have since written about what I think are the best products they have to offer. I placed an order recently, in which I combined what I wanted to buy with my mum, Josh's mum and Josh's grandma so that we could split the postage costs. I thought I would share with you the few products that we each repurchased – Arbonne products are pretty pricey so the fact that we felt these products were repurchasing says a lot about how much we like them!



Empties | August 2015

Firstly, apologies that this post is up a day late! For various reasons I couldn't get on my laptop last night to finalise and publish this post, but that just means that there will be two posts up today! I love reading about products that people have used up and hearing mini reviews of each product, I think if a blogger has totally finished a product then they have clearly been able to form a proper opinion of it which can be interesting to read. I've slowly finished these products over the past few months and finally had enough to put a post together, so there's a bit of a mixed bag but hopefully you'll find this informative in some way or another.


Affordable Makeup Starter Kit | Brushes and Tools

I know most of you reading this post will already have an extensive makeup collection but I thought this mini series could be helpful for younger readers or to anyone starting out with makeup! Having said that, it is always nice to save money where possible so even if your makeup collection is well-stocked you might come across some products that you haven't tried before which won't break the bank. As always, please leave some comments letting me know your favourite affordable makeup items and share any links to posts you've written/read that might mention products not discussed here!



Skincare | Emma Hardie

Emma Hardie moringa balm and facial oil

I mentioned yesterday that I'm on a bit of a skincare hype at the moment. I’d heard the name ‘Caroline Hirons’ being batted around the blogosphere for a while but had never actually ventured onto her blog…when I finally had a look I was hooked immediately! I've read so many of her blog posts and watched most of her videos over the past few weeks and have put a skincare wishlist together – some of which I will be publishing as categorised wishlists here on itsneecola (the first went up yesterday, click here to have a look!). I knew the first things I had to add to my regime were a good quality cleansing balm and an oil or serum. After trying plenty of products when I was last in Marks and Spencer I opted for Emma Hardie, which I ordered online using a very handy discount code I had (ah the benefits of having a boyfriend who works at M&S!).


URL Change | itsneecola.com

Hey hey! Just a really quick post to let you guys know (if you hadn't noticed already!) that itsneecola has made the very exciting move from .blogspot.co.uk to itsneecola.com! I'm really excited about this - this summer is all about upping my blogging game and taking my blog to the 'next level' (whatever that means!) and I feel like this change is a step in the right direction.

Don't forget that this week I am posting every day Monday-Saturday at 6pm so check back tonight for the next post, and in the meantime why not have a read of last night's blog post: my Cleansers wishlist!

Foundation | My Mini Collection

Foundations have never been my main 'thing' when it comes to makeup but I'm starting to love them more and more as I'm learning how to find ones that work best for me (see this post for what I've learnt so far!). I don't own many foundations, mainly because I try to finish them before buying new ones, but I thought I'd share my little collection with you anyway! Leave me a comment and let me know your favourite foundations, as well as what you think of the ones in my stash.
