Clean as a whistle!

Happy Monday lovelies!
Hope everyone had a good weekend 
Mine was pretty quiet and relaxing! 

So over the last few weeks I have been sticking to my new skin regime religiously!
(which is a first for me)
The first few days my skin actually got worse and I was ready to throw in the towel! 
but...I persevered and it has paid off ! 

The spots have gone! WOOHOO!!
My skin is the clearest it's been in a long time! 

I've been trying to reduce the load on the makeup front during the week as well 
So as not to ruin all the hard work! 

This is what I'm sporting on my face today 

OK so it's maybe not MINIMAL to some lucky people that can get away with a bit of clear mascara 
but for me this is minimal! lol 

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation 
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Powder 
Sleek Contour Kit
Benefit Hervana Blusher 

Benefit Big Beautiful Eyes Kit

Loreal False Lash Telescopic Mascara 

MUA Love Hearts Collection Lip Balm - Sweet Kiss

Real Techniques Stippling Brush 
The Body Shop Powder Brush
Elizabeth Arden Blush Brush 

As well as toning down my makeup, I have been trying not to style my hair using heat during the week 
I have also been taking extra special care of it
Because of this it has FINALLY started to grow
and today is a big milestone for me...
I managed to get my hair into my first ballerina bun!!

Now I probably have a cheek to even call this a ballerina bun lol
but I'm so happy that I finally have enough hair to do it! 

*Excuse the re-growth*

In other news, I have been looking to buy a tripod so I can finally take some outfit posts!! 
So look out for them!

Lotsa Luv ]
