Cancer Research UK #nomakeupselfies

I'm completely uncertain about the origin of the no make up selfie, but whoever thought of it is a total gem! Women across the world posing bare-faced, along with a donation, has helped Cancer Research UK to raise a staggering £8m in just six days. *Que round of applause*

Whilst the majority of us have been more than happy to jump on the bandwagon, many Internet users have taken to social media to express their confusion on the relevance of the new craze. But do you know what, who cares?! If it is raising money for a totally worthy cause AND spreading vital awareness, then it is absolutely more than okay with me.

I mean, how relevant is growing a ridiculous looking moustache in November?! But the relevancy isn't the issue! Its all about identifying what is really important, finding a cure. And if that means all of the fellas growing a mo and the ladies removing their beauty products then so be it. I think it is fab!

Here is my no make up selfie. (My dog Ben decided to do his bit and get involved to!)

The phenomenon has even entered the likes of the celeb world, with some of our fave A-Lister's taking part.

AnnaLynne Mccord is undoubtedly an extremely natural beauty!

Kym Marsh looks stunning in this selfie that she posted to Twitter.

Holly Willoughby looks gorgeous as always!

If you are yet to take your selfie and donate then please please Text BEAT to 70007 to make a donation! It is for such a wonderful and deserving cause and remember, "Alone we can do so little but together we can do so much!"

Lots of love,

Eyelash Extensions Review

Like most girls, I feel totally naked without mascara on. I have always had long lashes and it is for this reason that I've never considered extensions or even falsies. However, recently after a friend urged me to give them a go I decided... why the hell not?!

I was extremely apprehensive to say the least. I'd heard an array of negative comments regarding eyelash extensions and was unsure how I would take to them. But after trying them for myself I can confirm that they are completely and utterly fabulous.

I had mine done by the extremely lovely Michelle Hausen (Lashes to Lashes.) The process was quick, (just over an hour) and actually very relaxing as it mostly involved me lying down on a treatment bed with my eyes closed.

Here is a shot of me with the lashes!

Surprisingly they did not feel heavy as I had initially suspected, nor where they irritating in anyway. In fact, it was quite the opposite, I was completely unaware of them. For the first few hours after having them done, I found myself accidentally wiping my eyes, which quickly reminded me of their presence but you soon know not to touch them.

The following night, I did my make up and I couldn't believe how much time it saved me. I didn't need any eyeliner and I definitely didn't need any mascara, apart from on my bottom lashes.

The next morning, as I was frantically getting ready for my 9AM lecture, I realised that I really didn't need to put any make up on. The lashes looked fab and I didn't have to do a thing!

I would 100% recommend these to anyone, particularly if you have a big occasion coming up. So go ahead and treat yourself!

Lots of love, Kenzie xxx
