Emma Hardie Starter KitIt’s Mother’s Day in the UK on Sunday 10th March so don’t forget to buy a present!

If you’re looking for a pampering treat, Emma Hardie’s Moringa Cleansing Balm is an amazing product. It’s a cleansing balm that will treat your skin and will remove all traces of make-up, yes, even eye make-up. It smells amazing too, with extracts of uplifting Neroli, Orange and Mandarin. You can also apply a thin layer as a night time treatment for a bit of extra pampering and I’ve also found it to minimise open pores so a great all rounder!

Another celebrity inspired video…

If you’re a keen youtube viewer then you’ll have noticed how many ‘celebrity inspired’ make-up videos there are! So, here at MadeUp we thought we’d try another one out as Fran has already done a Kardashian one so this will add to the collection. I really enjoyed making this video as I would never usually wear this much make-up so it was fun experimenting.

We really wanted to find a wig for this video but we didn’t have time, however, we did try spraying my hair black but it was such a disaster Rich had to go in really close for the intro shot to try and hide it! It was another really fun filming day but we did eat pizza AGAIN! :/

Fran did a beautiful Rita Ora and Taylor Swift and I did a Zooey Deschanel so lots more videos to come…

Want to keep your skin looking young? Use a high SPF.

Summer is back, maybe only for a few days but isn’t it nice?! The rays inspired me to write this post about some of my favourite sunscreens. I took this photo whilst on holiday in Spain earlier this year.

Remember, it’s really important to protect your skin from the harmful rays to minimise your risk of developing skin cancer. If we protect our skin from a young age it can stop premature ageing.

Green People SPF 15 Sun Lotion is a nice non sticky suncream that doesn’t irritate your skin as it has no fragrance. My skin can get quite sensitive in the sun so this is a good option for anyone with sensitive skin.

La Roche Posay SPF 50 Tinted Fluid is a tinted lotion with high protection. This is great as it doubles up as a tinted moisturiser and instantly absorbs into the skin. It’s a fluid texture so it’s not heavy on your skin and you can wear make-up over the top. They also do a non tinted version.

Lancaster Sport SPF 30 Stick is good to use on smaller areas where we sometimes forget to apply sunscreen – lips, ears, back of neck. It’s a cream and a stick so a good multipurpose product.
