Spring Nail Picks

I'm definitely more of a neutral girl in general, especially when it comes to my nail color. However, sometimes I do like to switch it up a bit, particularly when I'm dressed all in monochrome. Here are a few shades I have been wearing on my nails recently. Going from top, anti-clockwise...

Review: Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation

I tend to wear medium/full coverage foundation on a daily basis unless it's summer and I'm not wearing much makeup at all. I'm not ashamed to say this although I know the trend for tinted BB/CC creams and tinted moisturisers has being a little bit more popular recently. When I say I like a fuller coverage, I don't mean I like a thick layer of matte concrete on my face. I still like a dewy finish I just feel more comfortable knowing that anything I want covering will be covered with a layer of foundation. Anyway, I guess I should get on the foundation at hand...

Family Edition #1: What's In Your Makeup Bag‏?

I don't have guest writers on my blog, mainly because I like to feel like this is my space that I have total control over. However, I thought I would maybe get some of the other Morgans involved by finding out what is in their makeup bags. Let's start with my older sister Ella...

Recent Purchases # 9

I haven't done one of these posts in a while but that certainly doesn't mean I haven't being buying stuff. Because I definitely have. I just remembered this time to actually post about it...

Goodbye Raspberphobia

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Okay so MAJ disaster... basically someone stole my domain name before I had time to rebuy it. So Raspberphobia has now become Nouveau Chique (it's an inside joke between me and my sister that I will explain at some point). Now, I'm not best pleased about this because this blog went under the name Raspberphobia for just over two years I believe and I'm sad to see it go. But then this does mean I need to revamp my whole blog which is quite exciting...

Three Tools

I wanted to talk about three beauty tools I use that aren't makeup brushes. Two are pretty standard and I know the other one you will be looking at thinking what on earth is that bizarre stick...

It's Looking Promising: Benefit Gimme Brow

I can (although I don't like to) leave the house with nothing but my eyebrows done so it's fair to say that I would rather go out with no eye makeup or lipstick on than without my eyebrowz did. I'm a big fan of the Anastasia Brow Wiz (in Ash Blonde) but I still like to try other products because of my curious nature -- even if the Anastasia Brow Wiz is basically perfection... (keep reading for images).

The $40 Sunscreen Situation

Sorry this isn't an April Fools' post...

Whether you are pale or have a dark skin tone, you should be wearing facial SPF on a daily basis. There is the common misconception that if you aren't pale then you don't need to wear SPF because you don't burn. The reality is that whether you burn or you don't burn, you are still susceptible to harmful rays which will not only make your skin age quicker but (more importantly!) can have devastating healthy impacts. Yes, I'm talking skin cancer.
