Love Island 2018: Everything You Need To Know

Love Island 2018: Everything You Need To Know

Yes Glossies, it’s the most wonderful time of the year! Love Island is finally back on our screens.

Last year the show reached it’s biggest audience ever, winning best reality show at this years BAFTA’s! With past seasons being uploaded onto Netflix we assume you’re all caught up so we’ve gathered all the info you need to know before this year’s season starts.

What is Love Island about?

Love Island is a reality TV show where 11 lucky individuals are flown out to live in a villa for 2 months with to find true love. The aim of the game is to couple up with someone and convince the public that they’re meant to be whilst competing in challenges and testing their trust when new Islanders are thrown into the mix along the way. In the end, the strongest couples remain and the public vote for their winners, who will win a huge amount of money.

But there is a final twist, the couple have to decide whether they are going to share the cash between them OR sneakily keep it for themselves.

Where is it filmed?

Every year, Love Island takes place in glorious Majorca, Spain. Only three hours away from the UK, it’s the perfect holiday destination that the contestants will be spending their whole summer! If the baking sun and gorgeous scenery isn’t enough, the islanders are housed in a brand new villa. Last year’s villa had 69 cameras in so they capture absolutely everything and we can’t wait to see what this years villa looks like!

I think it is so important to follow a beauty routine that works for YOU - you don't need to follow the crowd. I am always researching and trying out new looks, products and routines that are fresh and popular amongst the global beauty community to keep up to date with what's on trend and what works best. If you name a product, I've probably tried it.
