I hope you had a wonderful weekend - Tell me what you did nice?
I had my sisters baby shower on Saturday, it was amazing, She is so beautiful :) I cant wait till i can see the babies face and a new member of our family, especially after we lost our family pet a few weeks ago :( Such a sad time and such a hard thing to deal with - his name was Tobi and he was 13 - It is the hardest thing i have been through.
RIP Tobi :)
I will post some pics of him so you can see his gorgeous face too.
Anyway - I wanted to highlight my youtube video on how to put a quiff in your hair - Click on the link
I hope you are all fab today :) Friday is here and the weekend is nearly among us all :) yayyyy
So are you fed up of those dreaded eyebrows and want to keep them nice a tidy and even for them to shape your face (Yes this can happen :) )
I wanted to tell you how i keep my eyebrows tidy and in shape. The first thing i am going to recommend you do is go and get your eye brows threaded, Alot of people have them waxed but i am not a big fan - I don't think that you can get the shape as accurate as threading and... well i just prefer threading :)
It can be slightly painful but i promise it is worth it :)
Now for the colour i use on my brows - I use the body shop duo eye brow kit, The colours are great - I have really light eyebrows so only like a little colouring. You can really build up the colour with these as they are a matte powdery consistency so apply as little or more as you like. The brush that comes with it is fab too - Small and harder bristles make it very accurate.
Keeping up appearances - Between threading you may find a few stray hairs so i have been through my fair share of tweezers and just haven't found any good ones - Until now :) The body shop tweezers are fab with a slanted edge and precision they really do them them suckers out :)
I hope you found this useful and i hope you have a fab u lous weekend
Stay beautiful and let anyone tell you otherwise :0
I hope you are all happy and filled with make up love today :) I wanted to do a review on my favourite lipstick from MAC. It retails at around £14.00 in the UK, And in my opinion is worth the money.
I have larger lips and i dont feel that great when i am wearing a darker lipstick as i feel my whole face is just lips (just my opinion on myself - I do envy people who have big lips and can wear bold colours).
The texture of this lipstick is creamy and soft and you would probably need a couple of coats to get the depth and coverage. It just goes perfectly when you have heavier eye make up on and also just for a more natural look.
I do find it hard buying lipsticks as the colour just looks so different when you are wearing it, that's why reviews are so useful i suppose :)
I think the only con of this product is that it doesn't last as long as some of the other lipsticks from MAC as it is a glaze and the pigment doesn't stick to your lips - It a little like lip gloss in that respect but without the stickiness.
All in all i would give this lipstick a 5/5 - Purely because i just love the colour and when its on it makes your lips look very 'peachy' (not in colour - just in texture :0 )
I hope you find this review useful and let me know if you want me to review any other products.
I wanted to talk about the new Bare palette from Sigma, Absolutly love this palette.
The colours are neutral and can create a very natural look for the day and you can make it a little more bold for the evenings. Lovely and soft on the skin and really accentuates your features. You can even create some really effective smokey eyes with these colours. What i really like is that most of the colours are quite matte as i dont love really shimmery eyeshadows as they just turn into glitter.
You also get the brush which are 2 of their top selling brushes E30 and E25.
You can get this palette for around £30.00 to buy and worth every penny. You can buy it from the Sigma website and you even get a free gift with it too - Link -
I have been asked to do a tutorial on how to get the winged eye effect using MAC products- Perfect every time!!!
I have listed below which products I use and also the finished effect:
MAC Carbon eyeshadow
MAC Defined eyeliner brush
The finished effect
Step 1 - Use the paintpot and the fine eyeliner brush - Apply the liner across your upper lash line and start from the middle working your way outwards to the outer corner of your eye , You can apply the line as thick or thin as you desire - The thicker you apply it will make it easier to avoid errors.
Step 2 - Now you have the entire top of your lashes lined you want to start creating the wing, so with your brush (the longer ends of the bristles touching the outer corner of your eye facing diagonally upwards at an angle) apply more paintpot to create a backwards tick flick, then meet the top of the flick to the rest of the liner on your lids and fill it out - You should now have a sharp looking flick.
Step 3 - Meet the flick with your bottom lashes and this will really create a dramatic effect and smooths the lines in to enhance the shape of your eye.
(Now wipe your brush with a tissue (do not smudge on tissue as you will lose the shape of your brush)
Step 4 - Do exactly the same process but now using your MAC carbon eyeshadow - Follow over all of the lines and you now will have lines that will just stay put all day long.
This look will give you no need for liquid eyeliner but will give you that deep black depth that you just cant achieve with most eyeliners alone.
Let me know if you need any help or assistance - I do have a video tutorial on Youtube for this so if you are having trouble then check out the link below :
I have had a lovely weekend away in Liverpool this weekend and i have come across an amazing business called Peaches and Cream. 2 women have set up this gorgeous boutique of all this beauty. They do hair and makeup for special occasions or just when you fancy a pamper, They have fantastic wedding and party packages and you really get the best treatment.
They also do eyelashes and eyebrows and really cater for that perfect look. I will post a link to their website for you where you can see a gallery of their work and you will also find a price list.
I wanted to share my 2 favourite products this week:
Fake Bake Luxury Soft Sheer Bronzer:
I think i have fallen in love again after my first love of NARS Casino Bronzer. I absolutely love this bronzer from Fake Bake because it really is soft and sheer and the colour is AMAZING!!! I had a holiday in the summer and it goes so well with a tan. And it also really smoothes onto your skin when you have foundation on. Doesnt go blotchy and doesnt rub off. Truly amazing.
My second product this week is Loreal Double Extension Waterproof mascara :
Again, Fallen in love, I love the double ended mascaras and this one is my Fav, it just goes on perfectly and it does last you a long time. It stays on and looks great all day long. I get so many compliments on my mascara all the time because people just think i have long lashes.... (I have a secret - I dont) :)
